Good food in an impressive ediface

It's almost impossible to go wrong at Lightfoot. There is something for everyone on the menu, the service is good without being intrusive and the building -- a bank built in the 1800s -- is grand and gracious. Having written that, for the first time in our several visits to this restaurant, we... read 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.

We stopped by our favorite restaurant for a late afternoon meal following a show at Wolf Trap. Even though I'd made an error on Open Table they were gracious enough to give us a great table outside. The bar next door had music which added to the mood. The spinach salad with blue cheeses and ham was a great start.... More

The bar is a must see. Lobster anything in this place is always done well. Any and every soup is a must have. Staff is friendly. A bit exspensive but if you live in Leesburg it is one of the top 2 places to go for a special occasion.

The chefs at Lightfoot offer fresh, expertly-prepared, nicely-presented meals. Quality locally-sourced food. Portions are generous (the wild mushroom strudel "starter" could serve as an entree). Pork shank with broccolini and a cheddar/bacon bread pudding was delicious, as was the shrimp 'n' grits and the dinner salad with roasted salmon. The wine list has a variety of very good offerings. And,... More

We were in Leesburg, Va for a wedding and walking around downtown looking for a place for lunch. A woman came up to us and recommended Lightfoot - said it was the best place ever. She said follow me cause that is where I am meeting my husband for lunch right now. Am I ever glad we did cause it... More

Lightfoot has a special ambiance taking advantage of many of the features of a bank building from another area. The menu offers a variety of imaginatively prepared dishes and the wine list offers considerable variety.

We attended a wedding rehearsal here along with 60 other guests. There was plenty of room for all of us. The appetizers were served in the piano bar. We had veggies and dip and cheese and crackers. Their presentation was nice and they were of average quality. They served the cold veggie platter in an attractive basket. In the banquet... More

This past Saturday, my wife and I visited the Lightfoot to celebrate her birthday with a great meal. We had eaten at the Lightfoot previously, and we were excited to have a nice meal out once again. We traveled about a half an hour just to visit the Lightfoot, so dining there is a special occasion for us. While the... More

My husband took me here this past weekend for my 30th birthday. I was extremely let down by the experience. I was really excited to celebrate my birthday here, as I've had really enjoyable meals here in the past. My husband was taking me to what we thought was a nice meal. But there wasn't anything "nice" about this. Our... More
