“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Leesburg is a charming place. The Lightfoot with it's warm fire and great space is a great spot for dinner or lunch. We stopped in for a late lunch on a cold day. The service was excellent as were the salads, quesadilla, burger, deviled eggs.

Great bar as well and worth the visit if you are in the area.

“Pleasant but not spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

My husband and I had dinner at Lightfoot last Saturday night. The restaurant was beautiful on the inside. The bar area is much too small. The wait staff was very good. The food was very tasty and nice portions. Maybe a bit pricey, as was the wine list. But all in all, a good meal.

“Great American Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This is a favorite spot for my family and friends. Food is fresh and specials are delectable. We had dinner for several other friends. Service was impeccable. Ladies were served first, as it should be. Food was flavorful. Wine selection is top notch. One of our friends even went off her diet to have a glass of red wine that was too irresistible to pass up. Mocha Ya- Ya dessert is a must. Even when I am too full to eat it there, I will order it to take home. Can be romantic but also ncie and comfortable. In a historic former bank and decorative but jeans are allowed. Bon Appetit!!

“Never been for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

But the sister that's the chef out does herself every Saturday and Sunday for lunch! The food is creative and excellent!
Service varies depending on who you get, but never falls below average and is often excellent.

“Food & atmosphere never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

My girlfriend and I had an amazing Sunday brunch today @ Lightfoot. We hadn't been there in a while. I ordered the Chesapeake Eggs Benedict and my friend ordered the soup, spinach salad and grilled cheese sandwich. The food was outstanding!! We were seated in a nice quiet booth in the back. The restaurant was packed, but I didn't notice the noise level. We will definitely go back soon.
