Food is good but pricy. Location is not the best. The decor is not what one would expect at this price point. Service was ok. Probably will not return. Mostly because our server was horrible.

Lancaster City is a bustling, happening place to be. The restaurant and art gallery scene is incredible. New restaurants are popping up all the time, French, Vietnamese, Indian, fusion, every thing is here. And in that flurry of foodie activity, when most all restaurants are jammed every weekend, many with brilliant but inconsistent food, there is a steady hold out.... More

This use to be one of our favorite places but we have not been there for a long while. The good parts were the Escargot appetizer and the free Chocolate Dipped Strawberries for dessert. We ordered a Caesar salad as the waiter did not tell us a salad came with the meal and we didn't like the dressing on the... More

Fine dining in a booth doesn't seem right. Prices on high side for what we received. We were never informed Salad came with our meals. Food was average. Parking is very hard to find.

Had a fabulous dinner on Friday 07 Feb '14. My girlfriend planned a date night, the first stop was The Loft. Great fine dining, cozy atmosphere, and Lisa was put through her paces. We had tickets for the Fulton, and before we knew it, our time was up. Lisa saw at first we were in no hurry, and we were... More

New Year's Eve at the Loft has become a tradition for me. Although the menu for this special evening is limited, the service is first-class and the food delicious. My dining companion and I opted for the same meal: escargot en croute as an appetizer and prime rib. This evening, all meals came with a salad and chocolate mousse served... More

Great specials, and the food was fantastic. I got the smoked trout, friends got the stuffed flounder with crab imperial, the other chose the french onion which she stated... More

My husband took me here for a Thursday night dinner for my birthday. We had not been here in roughly 25 years, but had good memories. Food was excellent, from the out-of-this-world mushroom soup, to the wiener schnitzel and roasted duckling with raspberry/tamarind glaze. Not a huge choice of desserts, but crème brulee and peanut butter mousse pie were enjoyable.... More
