We eat dinner outdoors here several times each year, and our dog is always welcome (definitely the best food at a pet-friendly spot in Leesburg.) Staff is friendly, although distance to kitchen and unpredictable crowds sometimes slow down service. Soups, salads are excellent. Appetizer portions are large, so you can share or eat as a light meal well under $20.... More

Went here for dinner one Saturday night and was very pleased with our meal. We sat outside, the service was a tad slow, but terrible. I plan to return in the future.

A great place for lunch or weekend brunch. They always have a nice variety and fresh enticing food. The atmosphere is lovely, outdoor seating in the back is nice in pleasant weather but inside is interesting as well with a well done décor with a touch of history.

We attended at wedding at the Lightfoot Restaurant. What a beautiful venue, inside and out!! The wedding ceremony and reception were held on the second floor. It was very spacious with a handsome bar and a separate dining and party room. There was plenty of room for visiting, dining and dancing. The food was first rate and the service excellent.... More

The atmosphere and setting is very nice. There was music playing somewhere in the restaurant , but it was NOT loud , rather pleasant. I started off with the onion soup, and my husband had the berry salad.Both were excellent. The soup is really an onion/mushroom soup and it is unique and just fabulous. I like to have onion soup...

My wife and I had lunch there today with good friends. The service was excellent as was the atmosphere. Some of the food was excellent but some felt it was ok. We enjoy our visit but the value was not as good as some of the other great places in Leesburg.

The lovely dark hardwoods of the interiors of Lightfoot make for an upscale and cozy scene. We were seated in a bit of a dark corner but the seating was comfortable. The waitstaff was attentive but unobtrusive and made for a pleasant evening. The cheese plate was delicious as was the French Onion soup. They added a nice Happy Birthday... More

Lovely upscale setting but casual as well. Service excellent and food was amazing. I had the best asian shrimp salad and my sister the pork and peach salad. Use local products in season. Went for lunch but I would love to go back for dinner.

Lightfoot, established in an old bank, is a unique dinning experience. The atmosphere is fantastic for celebrating special occasions. The menu and wine are excellent and very well executed. The ambience and delicious food comes with a hefty price tag as the entrees run in the $30+ range. There is a good solution. The salad and 'appetizers' are actually quite... More

I phoned in a take away order for lunch at this lovely restaurant and was even able to find street side parking just down the block (they may have parking out back too). The building is historic and the inside is cozy and not blaring bright. For take away you go to the bar and it took the bartender a... More
