“Why is this restaurant # 13?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Great service, great food, great location. I moved the rating down to "very good" only because of their parking situation. That's something over which they have little control but it was an irritation. What about a valet option? Otherwise, top drawer all the way.

“Food is phenomenal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Food was everything I expected and MORE! The feel of the restaurant is upscale, relaxed, just perfect. Menu choices and specialties are fabulous. Enough options for everyone. We were lucky enough to have lobster bisque for the soup and it is out of this world! Everything was cooked to perfection. Okay, now for why it isn't 5 star. Service was lacking. They set us up with 2 tables which was fine, but the one table was served and finished with their entrees while the second table was waiting and waiting and waiting. With no explanation or apology from the server this was a real turn off.

“Food and ambiance excellent;service good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The ambiance and feel of the restaurant is five star as is the food.
The service was not as good as I would have thought compared to the prices and the food and ambiance excellence. The waitress was not as knowledgeable as she should have been and was difficult to understand though she seemed very kind and nice.
We were not offered bread and our drinks were not refiled in a timely manner.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We celebrated my fathers' 70th birthday at Lightfoot. There were 12 of us, including children, for dinner. The atmosphere was fantastic! The wait staff was terrific! The food was fabulous! They had a "steak and cake" special which was a filet and crabcake. Both were divine!

I dropped off balloons and a birthday cake ahead of time. The dinner/cake could not have gone better. It was the perfect place to have a celebration.

P.S. Don't miss the parking lot behind the restaurant. Very convenient!
