Dining options: Late Night, Dinner, Full Bar, Parking Available, Reservations, Seating, Serves Alcohol, Waitstaff
Description: The restaurant features a contemporary bistro-style menu, formed from the idea that casual dining can be stylish, and that some of our favorite comfort foods can benefit with the remix of contemporary flair. In addition to revised classics, the menu includes small plate "tastes" to share or enjoy with a cocktail. Daily specials from Chef Daniella Ward complete the culinary scenario by offering inspirations of the moment, influenced by the season.

We had a great dinner here last night. The entire experience was enjoyable -- service was excellent , the atmosphere terrific and food was delicious,The tasting dinner we had was so much fun and the flavors were crisp and fresh. Excellent use of fresh herbs without being overpowering. We highly recommend this restaurant!

“Good meal and very nice atmospere”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Stayed at the lancaster arts hotel nearby and came here for dinner. Had the meatloaf and mac/cheese which was pretty good. Wife had the hanger steak which was better. Ate on the outdoor deck on the second level which is great when the weather is nice.

“My Favorite In Lancaster”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is where I make my husband take me for my birthday. This year we also rang in the New Year at Fenz! You can't be the atmosphere, the vibe is great. Plus the food is dee-lish. I always get the cheese plate even though I'm full by the time dinner comes. Then I still eat my whole entree. Truffle fries are to die for! Also, the bartender makes great drinks. I never leave disappointed, hungry or sober. Thank goodness my hubby drives home!

“Great Setting and Decor - Average Food”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Set in what appears to be a converted residence, the atmosphere from the moment you walk in until you reach your seats is excellent. A chic, somewhat electric mix of canvas works hang on the walls and upholstered chairs provide a great environment.

Both the upstairs and the downstairs bar were well stocked with knowledgeable and friendly bartenders.

The great atmosphere combined with the bar service and selection (as well as our friends comments) lead us to have quite high expectations for the food.

To be frank - our expectations were not met. Not bad food mind you, not at all - its just based on above and when looking at a 30 / plate meal, ordering supporting vegetables a la carte - there is a certain bar that needs to be exceeded by the restaurant.

While we enjoyed our visit, would place this location further down on the list than some other lancaster/york/harrisburg dining options.
