Beautiful Restaurant with Tasty Food

My husband and I had lunch at Lightfoot today and we were very impressed with the architecture and the menu items. It used to be a bank and they preserved the intricate architectural details of the original building. It's gorgeous. As far as food, my husband had the Grilled Cheese of the Day... read more

Dinner was fine. We experienced the "your table is not ready and why don't you go to the bar and wait $$$" trick. The guys who seated us (finally) looked like heavyweight professional wrestlers (I'm not kidding). Good choices are crab soup and shrimp and grits. Service is indifferent.

Should be on the top of your list for fine dining in Historic Leesburg. Right across from the courthouse with on street parking (free after 5 pm), Lightfoot is a cool re-do of an old bank complete with marble stairs, fantastic Old World lighting fixtures, large retro French theatre posters and, of course, a bank vault. We were seated at... More

Tremendous atmosphere, located in the heart of Leesburg, Va. My wife and I had an outstanding experience. Enjoyed a drink at the bar to start the night off, nice curved bar- very relaxing. Had one of the best appetizers that I have ever had- mushroom strudel , very tasty. My wife had the lobster salad to start and I had... More

Had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Lightfoot last night- first visit and tried based on reviews and comments about atmosphere. Fantastic place, exceptional food and service. Had the Lobster Bisque which was outstanding, as was the French onion soup with mushrooms. The Fridd Green tomatoes appetizer was awesome. I had the steak and cake and substituted veggies (no grief with... More

When you can obtain a table in one of the two front wings it is better than the main floor for privacy and quietness. For business, I find these areas my favorites. The food is fabulous no matter where you sit!! Love the signature tomato soup and fried green tomatoes. The chef is consistently creative and spot on!

Lightfoot has been a staple of Loudoun County for many years. Both it's atmosphere and cuisine have kept this well established restaurant at the top of my list when visiting Northern Virginia. A former bank, dinner at Lightfoot is like stepping back in time to a more elegant period. The food is second to none and reasonably priced. If you... More

Ingrid's inspired menu as well as her preparation are always a delight for lunch! Another plus is the wine by-the-glass list. Finishing lunch with the World's Smallest Sundae is the way to go!

My parents and I had the pleasure of dining in this establishement on our way to Dulles Airport. There were many positive first impressions-a very friendly greeting by both host and hostess, help in finding a table which would work for my elderly parents and, of course, the food itself! I ordered a Chinatown salad and it was not only... More
