This is a wonderful restaurant, one of Leesburg's oldest and most consistently good. It's on the expensive side but a nice treat for special occasions or just a very good meal. The setting is an old bank and it's been converted beautifully, it's cavernous and ornate but somehow still intimate. The summer patio is also a nice change we enjoy... More

Good food in a beautifully restored old bank on historic Leesburg's main street. From the huge old steel vault in back to the big Seth Thomas clock on the wall to the handsome wood bar in the middle of the dining room, this is a unique setting for a delicious meal. Fresh baked bread starts off many good choices on... More

I love going to Lightfoot. My husband and I went for dinner at the bar. He had the lobster bisque and I had the tomato soup. Both of us had salads and wine. The atmosphere is always pleasant and the food is fantastic. Great service too.

My first date with my now wife was here (at their original location) and we returned last week, 18 year later. We haven't been back in several years, but they have maintained a high standard. Salads/soup were substantial, great flavors, and well-plated. The crab cake dinner was spectacular in taste and appearance. Seafood gumbo also excellent. Service was attentive and... More

Recently went back to the Lightfoot - had an amazing Steak and Cake special - a perfectly cooked filet along with a generous crabcake. Amazing. ALso can not say enough about the roasted tomato soup. My favorite soup. Lightfoot never fails to impress and satisfy.

An impromptu luncheon at this lovely Restaurant in Downtown Historic Leesburg, Va. Formerly a Bank. A nice assortment of Seasonal soups were had by three and a very good Arugula, goats cheese, walnut salad. A Beautiful Quiche, Greek inspired Steak salad, a croissant, Brie and honeyed ham sandwich and a Cajun Spaghetti. The Desserts were all memorable. Definitely worth a... More

We gave this a average rating because we had a mixed experience. First, we were pleased to be able to obtain a table on a busy lunch day and while our server was gracious, service was not always prompt. But we were disappointed with the quiche special and $12 for a bowl of crab bisque seemed a little much. Also,... More

Out for a birthday dinner and wanted to try someplace new to us. They were busy, but our reservation got us to the table promptly. The service was good but the food was up and down. The French onion soup was good, the ham biscuits were good, but the game hen flavor was a little weird and the lamb chops... More
