Description: The restaurant features a contemporary bistro-style menu, formed from the idea that casual dining can be stylish, and that some of our favorite comfort foods can benefit with the remix of contemporary flair. In addition to revised classics, the menu includes small plate "tastes" to share or enjoy with a cocktail. Daily specials from Chef Daniella Ward complete the culinary scenario by offering inspirations of the moment, influenced by the season.

We got a last minute Sat night reservation upstairs in the bar at a hightop. The ambiance and energy were great, and I don't mean in a noisy way. Our server was top notch, the appropriate mix of giving us time to review the menu, along with his knowledge and guidance. When the Argentinian chard I selected was not to... More

My friends from North Dakota were visiting Lancaster and invited me to join them for dinner at the FENZ, a Lancaster restaurant I had never visited but heard alot about. Excellent food and a great, friendly and somewhat comedic server named Skip!!

We like eating at the bar upstairs. Service is always great. Food is reliable. A nice place with a professional business crowd but still maintains a casual feel at the bar

We reserved and were seated at a nice table for two. Another table near us had four guests. Then, 3 couples entered and were seated at a large round table between us. Recent escapees from the trailer park, they were loud and louder. Not until we finished our entrees and asked for our check did the waitress offer to seat... More

Fenz kinda has it all going on. The people who work there are VERY nice- we met the owner who was just super, the host who seated us was helpful on the phone with directions (we live in another town), and most pleasant. Our server was great, and our meal was excellent. We had a couple drinks, an app, salads,... More

We have dined at this restaurant on several occasions, typically dining at the upper bar, and a handful of times in the dining room. We love the upper bar area for the comfortable 'Lancaster chic' atmosphere. It is a wonderful place to grab a drink and a snack. Dress up or wear jeans, it is all good. We appreciate how... More

In my opinion, Fenz is the best restaurant in Lancaster. It's decorated beautifully, the green color scheme is different, very fresh and clean. The menu is not extensive, yet I had to choose between several strong possibilities. The food was delicious, everything from the iced tea, dinner roll and the entree. Our waiter was the best--friendly, pleasant and attentive, but... More

We just stopped for an appetizer and drink with friends. It is a really great small spot for socializing or business.

Lancaster has a lot of good restaurants. I would add Fenz to the top tier. We've eaten there several times and the food is consistently good, staff friendly and professional, and we always have a great evening.
