“great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Great atmosphere along with great service. I love the location of this restaurant since it's right in downtown Leesburg and easy to get to with convenient parking near by. I have been here a number of times and have never been disappointed!

“Unique Eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The restaurant was originally a bank and they have kept the vault, etc., making it a uniquely special ambiance. Always consistent, really delicious food. Love the Asian Chicken Salad!

“Great Restaurant and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Had a wonderful brunch at Lightfoot sitting in the rear patio. The food is very good and the waiter service was first class. I would recommend this location for Brunch/Lunch anytime you are close to Leesburg.

“Lightfoot is simply great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Walking into Lightfoot is an experience in itself. The old bank is sumptuous and spectacular. The decor, posters and overall ambiance is something to behold. Marble, wood, high ceilings...and then you get the menu!

We finally decided on an oysters Rockefeller appetizer, which had a nice cheese crust and perfectly done oysters. I was a little disappointed that the oysters arrived simultaneously with the entrees. My wife had a beef brisket sandwich with a terrific BBQ sauce. My choice was the French dip roast beef on a sourdough roll. The roll was exceptional and held up well to the dipping I subjected it to. The roast beef was tender and juicy on its own, with crispy , golden brown french fries.

Dessert was a shared banana cake on melted Belgian chocolate with fresh whipped cream and peanut butter ice cream. An outstanding dessert, and the peanut butter ice cream was amazing.

Our server Thomas did an excellent job, and was knowledgeable and helpful with the menu items. With the exception of the late arrival of the appetizer (or maybe the entrees came early?), the service was spot on.

Before or after you eat, the old bank venue is worth a stroll. The restoration and conversion from bank to restaurant was really well done. Take the stairs up the the second floor for a nice view of the whole place. The bar is beautifully finished and welcoming. The whole experience is five-star.

“Why is this restaurant # 13?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Great service, great food, great location. I moved the rating down to "very good" only because of their parking situation. That's something over which they have little control but it was an irritation. What about a valet option? Otherwise, top drawer all the way.
