Good Find in Lancaster

This BYOB, farm-to-table restaurant is really fit for foodies. We had read a good review in the NY Times recently and had to go. Corn gnocchi, burrata with local tomatoes and peaches, snapper, lamb, octopus. It's a varied menu. And terrific desserts. The only annoying thing is the blackboard... read more

...an BYO policy that the restaurant didn't bother to inform us in advance, even though through Open Table they had our contact information. No problem for locals but for tourists like us it's a bummer. I pointed out the problem to staff but they didn't seem to care.

This is an interesting place to eat - rustic chic. It is small (they call it intimate) & they use in season local vegetables - the night we were there, fresh peas were in several of the selections. They have a nice variety of interesting menu items & we liked everything that we ordered. They have a very small kitchen... More

My husband ate here for the first time last night after hearing rave reviews about it. Our server was delightful and very knowledgeable and excited about the food. There were many things on the menu we hadn't heard of, but we were excited to try them. The presentation was lovely and the food was good, but not exceptional. There was... More

Both my dining companion and myself thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The food was masterfully prepared and the flavors and ingredients were exciting. The chef clearly has a great love for and understanding of food. As the small dining area filled up it did get noisy and conversation became difficult. Other than that, a fantastic dining experience. I highly recommend... More

Greatly anticipated my first visit. Oh, why did I wait so long. Clams with roasted lentils, rabbit ragu with Sardinian pasta, wow. Not a restaurant for the faint of heart. What you get is what is fresh, prepared to perfection. They advise they are welcoming you to their home. They must have a lot of friends over often. Busy, bustling... More

We had a dinner party for 10 in the upstairs room and it was fantastic! Everything was served family style and we couldn't have asked for a better night. Pheasant Pate and brussel sprouts both on homemade bread. A simple fennel and orange salad was tremendous. Braised beef cheeks with parsnip purée and root vegetables was so hearty and flavorful!...

Based on one visit only! A nice attempt by Maison last night however misses the mark........... Food, creative to the point of so much going on it losses definition of flavor. Service, trying however your staff needs training. Atmosphere, active city like. Speak up to be heard!

Maison is now my favorite restaurant in Lancaster. At my most recent visit, the Italian notes that were background in my previous meals were up front - a fabulous addition to this already outstanding restaurant. The homemade burrata came with a light slow-cooked proscuitto dressing that put the already fabulous appetizer over the top. My husband's tomato panzella was a... More
