The service was fantastic and the ambience was as well. The food had it's good points and not so good points. The steamed mussels appetizer was excellent as was the lobster bisque. My entree was somewhat disappointing. I ordered a ribeye steak special. The potatoes were a but undercooked and the asparagus was a bit overcooked. The ribeye was just OK, cooked close to how it was ordered, but the steak was rather thin without much flavor or presence. My companion's stuffed lobster tail was better, but the sides were equally very average. I recommend the restaurant but be wise in your selections and don't expect too much from the cuisine.

Very nice evening at the Belvedere. I enjoyed my lavender wine cocktail and our appetizers (shrimp cocktail and lobster/crab dip) were delicious. The gespacho soup was very good. My entrée was excellent (surf n turf mac n cheese) We will definitely go back.

Wonderful date night. Went for their prix-fixe menu during restaurant week. While it was a fairly standard menu, I was very suprised just how well it was executed. Worth every penny. Good selection of wines by the glass, though I could have used a couple more red options. Will definitely return. Would love to book one of their outside plastic pods on the upstairs patio.

Great food and service. Wine was a bit expensive and had no chianti on the list.

only real negative was that we were seated on the second floor and the steps were dark and steep, my wife needed assistance.

The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars for ambience is that with the COVID requirements it does not match its usual former magnificence. Once these restrictions are reduced, I am sure it will revert back to its 5 stars.

The food was great. I especially enjoyed the Lobster/Crab dip served with crisps as an appetizer. After a long pandemic, it was nice to eat be served in a beautiful place again.

We were celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary and the restaurant, food and service were excellent!
The crab cakes were the best I have had in a very long time and my husband had the filet mignon- he is still raving about it.

Thank you for making our anniversary special!

My husband and I had a great time! We are glad we dressed up, no jeans. He wore a suit jacket, nice shirt and nice pants. I wore dress pants and a nice shirt! Our service was nice and the food was wonderful! Lobster and crab dip, petite Caesar salad, pan seared salmon and wild game 2 ways! Yum!! Excellent date night but definitely lights are low prices are moderate to high! Definitely loved it and going back again in the future!

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday since he had never been before and he absolutely loved it. Upon arrival they gave him a little birthday card which was a nice gesture. The food was amazing, and the creme brûlée was top notch! Will definitely be back, amazing service!

We want to thank Weston again for his excellent service. His timing was perfect throughout our meal. We were able to enjoy each course fully, without feeling rushed, but also not feeling forgotten. His wine recommendation was perfect.

This has been one of our favorite restaurants, but this meal was one of our best there. Exception food and drink choices, very well prepared.

Thanks for taking such great care of us, Weston. We'll definitely request you in the future.

Had an incredibly fantastic experience at the Belvedere! Reservation reservation had canceled so we were fortunate enough to be able to sit in the private, heated, enclosed booths on the balcony. It was incredibly romantic and a perfect setting for dinner. Our server Jimmy was equally incredible. Relaxed, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable as well. Food was fantastic, building is gorgeous, service is impeccable, if you want a fantastic meal for a very special occasion go here!

Very nice place we chose for our 44th. anniversary. Beautiful old building in downtown Lancaster. Reception staff was very friendly. Waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was marvelous. I long for the day when we can go into a place not wearing and see the staff not wearing a mask. But they’re doing their best to stay within the guidelines. We highly recommend the Belvedere.

First dinner out in 8 months due to Covid. We made an excellent choice for this occasion. Service wonderful, attentive yet unobtrusive. Thank you, Henry
Food was excellent. Great ribeye, short ribs and crab cakes. Plexiglass panels between each table were a great addition that did not distract at all from the atmosphere
