Highly recommend this little delightful bistro in Lancaster. One of the best meals we have ever had. Can't wait to return. My wife had prawns and risotto. I had a vegan meal, which was clever, tasty, and very creative.

We really enjoy Maison for the food, service and atmosphere. We like that it's a BYO. This restaurant has become our favorite place in town. Our last visit was this past Friday night 5/26/14 and we brought some friends with us. We each ordered a first, second and dessert course and ate it as it came out, which was really... More

I loved the concept of this restaurant. Small and homey, with perhaps 30 seats, the food also had a homemade vibe to it. It's BYOB, which makes it very affordable. The menu is small, so it's a good idea to check ahead and see what they're serving before packing up a bottle or two for the meal. The night we... More

CIA Graduates with great finesse using regional ingredients to make innovative sophisticted dishes . It is BYOB so a real barging for drinks . We are locals who are regulars and who divide our time among Lancaster and Washington and NYC so Maison would stand its own in the big cities. The seating is intimate but fine .

Maison is a lovely neighborhood farm to table restaurant - even in the relatively barren winter months. The kitchen continues to build dishes around local products, but fills them out with non-seasonal products. Our two salads were outstanding - the warm bacon dressing on the lyonnaise salad tempering the bitter edge to the frisee, and the blood orange sections in... More

Friends took me to this restaurant the Friday before Christmas, and it was like opening a great present! It's a very small, quaint room with just a few tables. The offerings are listed on a chalk board and change daily, depending on what's currently available locally or from their farm. Everything was beyond delicious, especially the Rosemary Rabbit Ragu! It's... More

Ok so as some reviewers have noted the menu is limited to 4-6 appetizers and about the same number of main courses- so is you are looking for standard fare- not for you -but if you are looking for something really inventive and as interesting as some of the best in much larger cities, Maison is a great choice. We... More

My daughter was so excited to take me to Maison during my visit. As I read the menu I couldn't find anything to order. My choices were rabbit, skate, oxtail, sausage or a chicken leg confit for 24 dollars. I ended up ordering two appetizers that were both passable but overpriced. My son-in- ordered a salad. Again , nothing special... More

I was pleasantly surprised upon entering the cozy, country-chic dining room of Maison. It has such a warm and exciting vibe to it; like you know you are about to experienced something special. We were promptly and warmly greeted and were fortunate to get the best table in the house; right in front of the French doors to the porch.... More

When I grew up in Lancaster, there was no shortage of places to eat. It's just that none of them were very good, despite the fact that Lancaster County farms produced an astounding variety of produce and meats. As local demographics changed, though, a growing number of restaurants serving high-quality, farm-to-table cuisine have opened. Maison is the best one I've... More
