C'est magnifique!
Barbaret is our favorite restaurant. What's not to love. You walk from the King Street sidewalk right into into France. If you can temporarily resist the temptations of the patisserie as you make your way into the restaurant, you can buy as many of the outrageously good creations on your way out.
You'll likely be greeted by Alex as you arrive and likely be served by Tim who also works his magic behind the bar (best Sazerac I ever had).
The ambience is a sort of cool blend of old world and modernist, and perfect for sipping your cocktail. I could go on but I won't. Food is first rate, nice list of French wines and, of course, pate de foie gras. If you are in any way a Francophile you should check out Barbaret soon. B.on appétit

Food was really good. Atmosphere was ok but I like it a little noisy and clearly it's a little quieter in restaurants right now. I had the Steak Frittes. It was cooked to medium rare as I requested. It was tender and juicy but the Au Poivre could have had a little more taste. They should offer the steak with a few more options like Blue Cheese or Butter, etc. Server was knowledgable. I would definitely go back.

Very nice restaurant. Food was good, especially the veal cutlet and salmon with cauliflower mash. Fois gras was lovely but overpriced for the serving size. Also needed more accouterments.

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.
