Exceptional French food in an elegant setting in the heart of downtown Lancaster. While it is on the higher end for a meal the food is scrumptious and worth every penny. It is definitely a place worthy of special occasions or when your in the mood for authentic French cuisine.

The food was excellent, and the staff tried to be friendly. The covid oriented atmosphere did make one uncomfortable. It was explained to us by both the hostess and the waitress that our time was limited. Actually, we were able to make the time limitation with little trouble. The key to a fast turnover would be for the waitress to arrive immediately, take our drink orders, and give us the specials. Then she should return with the drinks, take our complete order and let the meal proceed with alacrity. This did not happen in our case. If we were slow, it was not our fault; we were waiting.

The menu and food was great. Service and flow was poor. Way too much time between courses and in the end the waiter who had not checked back with us in a timely manor after delivering us desert options apologized upon arriving back to take our order but we then found out the desert we all wanted was just recently SOLD OUT.

We will go back and try again because the food was great but table side service and flow will have to be much better if we are to return in the future.

My husband and I went here for my birthday and were extremely happy! We moved from a very food-forward location to York/Lancaster area, and have been missing the restaurant scene. We found this on a whim and can't wait to go back! We got Fois Gras, Tartiflette, Lamb Shank, Bœuf Bourguignon, Creme Brûlée and Molten chocolate cake. It was all delicious! We even stopped in the bakery and got 7 pastries to go as well. They also provided free macarons as a birthday treat. The waiter, Christopher, was kind and helpful! So happy to have found a phenomenal French restaurant not too far from our new home!

This restaurant has some of the best French food I have tasted. Not only did I have the best escargot in my life there, but the drinks were balanced and strong! The pastries are fantastic, edible & delicious art. You won’t regret stopping by.

This was our 2nd time here. Once again we enjoyed very good oysters. The server (Timothy) was excellent and incredibly accommodating in allow us to share (2 plates) our Caesar Salad and 2nd drink. An early dinner evening time and $$ well-spent.

We’re still under the thrall of government-mandated lockdowns, so the ambience of any restaurant is poor. But we were happy to return to our favorite restaurant for another delightful lunch. I tried the tomato bisque soup and am glad i did — excellent!
Of course, any trip to Babarets is incomplete until dessert, and they never disappoint.
Babarets is a real treasure in the heart of Lancaster County. May it continue to survive and thrive (once all the nonsense is over).
