I've been going to Lightfoot for 9 years and every single time, it's hands down an exquisite dining experience. For starters, all of their salads are made with attention and fresh ingredients and each bite is crisp and savory. My go to plate is the...More

Lightfoot Restaurant was once a late 19th century bank with beautiful marble floors and columns housing a state of the art monstrous vault illuminated by exquisite glass chandeliers.
