“Good for appetizers but that's it”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We ate at Pour a few weeks ago and loved that the seating area on weekends goes into a gallery. We also thought the duck fat fries were awesome (how could they not be awesome?). That was the end of. The positive experience. We also ordered entrees which were all over cooked and oddly seasoned. I had the duck and it was tough and had little flavor.

Service was also very slow and it took a considerable time to finally get our check.

There are a lot of other restaurants in Lancaster that are much better.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

If your idea of a good time is to overpay for gourmet food, this is the place for you. Unless you are serious foodie who appreciates exotic food presentations, this is not the place for you. The portions are so tiny that I thought that I would have to use my pocket magnifying glass to see what was on my plate. The portions are intended for the foodie without an appetite. The service was adequate, but not extraordinary, and the outdoor court adds nothing to the experience. It faces a noisy street and the outdoor furniture is ordinary. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone other than an upscale yuppy who is into conspicuous consumption (otherwise known as "hip."). If you are really hungry, go to McDonalds. My taste buds are too proletarian for this place.

Admittedly, the duck fries and the choice of wines and beer are outstanding. You can decide whether they are worth the price.

“Hip restaurant in downtown Lancaster”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

POUR has a hip vibe and is situated in an excellent location on Gallery Row in downtown Lancaster. The menu consists of mostly small dishes that are unique, delicious and artfully presented. Choose from seating in the art gallery, bar area or outdoor patio. Fine international selection of beers and wines.

“Delicious dinner- service and seating so-so”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

Arrived to celebrate 40th birthdays- even with reservation for a party of 3 and many open 4 person tables in main dining room we were sat at a very small 2 person table in banquet seating in bar area- tables very close together- seriously was 6-8 inches from next table- felt like they were part of our group. Apps- delicious- Parma ham, triple cream soft cheese and duck fat fries- could have given bread with each board- not just one hunk of 4 slices per table.
Dinner was fantastic- flavors and presentation amazing and very creative. Dessert quite a let down- flat flavors- and no check back by server to see how things were- which left half desserts on 2 plates- which never happens if you know me and my friend and they didn't ask if there was something wrong with them when they came to clear. I would reccomend the place for drinks and apps- even dinner- but do not waste your money on dessert...

“Pour what? Incompetent, and dishonest...Pretention is the worst!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This place is awful. Well, unless you want to give your business to a place that says your resevation for 10 was confirmed when it was not. Or if you were prepared to have a nice dinner party and then where escorted to a couch with tv trays to eat at. No apologies either. Obviously we were not the "chosen party" of the evening. Pour?!?! What a joke!
