Lightfoot is apparently the place for the elite of Leesburg to meet and eat - on a recent Friday night, this place was packed. It is easy to see why. The dining room, a former Beaux Art bank lobby is gorgeous and the service is very friendly and efficient. We both very much enjoyed the scallop appetizer. My companion's duck entree was wonderful - my eggplant parmagiana, surprisingly, was less so. I certainly understand their wanting to "up the ante" on a menu basic like this by using more expensive and flavorful cheese, but it was like eating a solid block of cheese - eggplant and sauce were curiously absent.
One small thing - although the bread was very good, it was served cold, as if it had been sitting in the fridge. Would only take a moment to pop it in the microwave.
In the end we felt our dinner just was not worth the price - with tip, an even $100. for one shared entree, two glasses of house wine, and two entrees - no salads or desserts.
We have been here for lunch and enjoyed that experience very much, feeling that meal was well worth the price.
