Delicious Food, CIA Chef, Lovely Setting in former 1880s Bank.

We were in town to shop at the Leesburg Outlets. We ventured into the business district knowing we'd find places for dinner. Since it was Sunday, there were plenty of free meters for parking, but there were also lots of parking structures if you are there weekdays. We walked down King St., seeing a... read more

Had a classic Swedish dish with salmon (being Swedish myself) but the fish was overcooked and the dill sauce not correct etc. Service was uninterested etc.

Had business dinner for 6 there last week (did same about a month ago). Food and service are excellent. Restaurant is typically busy (even mid week) but if you book a business meal in advance they can normally find someone relatively quiet in the restaurant.

This restaurant has a fantastic location in the historic downtown and is housed in a 19th century building that was originally a bank. The building and its interior are special- they still have the old vault and if only the food were truly good, this would be a wonderful spot for lunch or dinner. It's not cheap to eat here... More

Went to Lightfoot on Father's Day 2015, and thought the food was good not really great, the restaurant it self is very nice and elegant. The Service was good and the wait staff was very helpful and responsive. The food was a little on the light side as far as portion goes and taste profile. I had the biscuits and... More

Lightfoot is truly the best restaurant offering in Leesburg. Its historic downtown and pedestrian-friendly location is delightful, and Lightfoot is appropriate for a myriad of groups and occasions. It's great for date nights, business meetings, special occasions, and meals with the family. It has a somewhat formal look given its 1800s-bank-turned-restaurant architecture, but don't let that fool you into thinking... More

I happened to have two luncheons at Lightfoot in several days and both times I enjoyed both the food and the service. The first lunch we were waited on by Tresh (sp?) and he was very polite, attentive but not overly so, and fun. In fact, this was a birthday celebration and in the past, the birthday person had been... More

Ate here recently on a trip to Virginia. The restaurant setting is lovely. It is in a renovated old bank complete with a beautiful safe. The service was excellent and the food was good. We had several different salads and I had the shrimp and grits. My portion of shrimp and grits was generous but the salads seemed a little... More

My husband and I have made it a tradition to do holiday shopping at the outlets and then go to Lightfoot to dine. Aside from the time that they were unexpectedly closed, we have always enjoyed a delightful menu at this quaint restaurant located across the street from Leesburg's courthouse.
