Second trip to this restaurant and we highly recommend the food. It was excellent. The menu contains very good meat and seafood options, there are several specials and all are presented nicely. Also good wine choices. Lively place with piano being played upstairs. Our only issue is that we were seated in the very back of the restaurant adjacent to... More

My wife and I went to lightfoot in March of 2012. The interior of the building is beautiful, and judged on this standard, it is the nicest restaurant in Leesburg. The staff were very nice and the presentation of the meal was spot on. To start I ordered the crab bisque (good) and my wife ordered the French onion (also... More

The food was as if the chef was trying to make upscale food but had no idea what complimented what. The mashed potatoes were instant an the filet mignon was grainy. This was our first experience here and for sure our last but I knew I had to tell others since we found this through tripadvisor.

Lightfoot consistently serves it up well. Portions are huge, deviled eggs (yes, deviled eggs!) are GREAT. The pork shank is huge and tender and just amazing. I've had the calamari - done perfectly, steaks - perfect, and dessert - YUM!

Many of us locals stopped going here after trying to relax to a good dinner yet hearing from the kitchen the chef scream and throw her pots and pans at employees. Good food but look out for flying pots and pans. To bad because the co-owner is delightful. Good chef but she needs some therapy.

I went to Leesburg on a business trip and had to work long hours. Fortunately, I found this restaurant in the historic downtown area for our late dinner. The food was amazing! The decor and building is just romantic and antique-looking. If i would live closer to this area, i would definitely take my husband for romantic dinners here. I... More
