Had a very good lunch on their back patio. Had some form of a beefed up BLT & french fries with a beer of course. Never had it before as I am a frequent repeat customer here. This place has never disappointed. Good food and good service. Will be returning next time I am in town.

This former bank building is lovely and provides a wonderful backdrop in which to dine. I visited Lightfoot several years ago and loved everything about the restaurant. I can remember nothing but excellence from appetizers to dessert. Unfortunately, tonight's meal did not come anywhere close to my previous visit. The waiter was oddly pompous and affected, and seemed put out... More

An average place with poor price-to-quality ratio. We tried both meat and seafood and both dishes were sub-par. The service was so-so. We had a table outside (not a particularly romantic seating, next to a parking lot) and had some smokers next to us. I'm not even sure they were allowed to smoke there but it was pretty inconvenient. Nobody... More

My partner and I were browsing around town before a gig at Wolff trap and decided to go in for a drink and quick bite . The room is spectacular and set the mood . The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered two appetizers and both were delicious . I will be back .

The experience at Lightfoot was pleasant for food and atmosphere. The service was slow. Way too much time in between appetizer and dinner. The waiter was off standish and recited the specials so quickly we felt like he had somewhere else to be. Please, tweak your wait service! It would make for a perfect high end restaurant. Of course, you... More

I have had both lunch and dinner here and everything was superb! The building is gorgeous which makes for such a nice atmosphere. Everyone's food was delicious and the service was great. The servings were very large. The servers were there when you needed them but not hovering over you. This is a great place to have a special meal.

Yesterday, we had a wonderful evening dining on the patio at the Lightfoot Restaurant in Leesburg, The weather was perfect. Although we were a party of five and two of us showed up 1/2 hour early, they seated us immediately, took our drink orders and did not hassle us while we waited for our friends. The drinks were good, the... More

Located in a historic bank, in the heart of Historic Leesburg you will find a FANTASTIC restaurant! Lightfoot makes you feel as if you are stepping into the past reflecting on decor that dates itself back to the classic "high-end" feel of the good ole' days!

This restaurant is in an old bank, and has been beautifully restored. Stop in tobsee the building even if you don't plan to eat here. The meals are a bit pricy, but everything we had was very well cooked and presented. The crab bisque had a decent lump of crab meat on top, and the seasonal chocolate raspberry dessert was... More

I recently treated my mother-in-law and my daughter to a "girls" night out at Lightfoot. We chose to eat on the patio and really enjoyed the experience. I walked through the inside of the restaurant and I liked how it was a previous bank. They had live music playing which was also enjoyable. It is dark inside and it was... More
