Set in a 1780 Pennsylvania Stone Farmhouse with deep windows and a warm pleasant atmosphere this is a family owned and operated restaurant that is recognized as one of the Best of Lancaster for dinner, Sunday Brunch, patio dining, wine list, atmosphere and romantic settings. Although our building is over 225 years old we update our menu daily! Change is a good thing at the Greenfield. We specialize in next day delivery of seafood while we continue to cut our own steaks. You will enjoy selections from our wine list that has been recognized by the Wine Spectator Magazine for over 9 years. Our patio and balcony over looking the bar is among our customers favorite requests for lunch and dinner seating, while the wine cellar has two of the most romantic tables in the area. If you are traveling, this is one of those restaurants that you wish you had back home....and we are happy that you found us.

Our favorite restaurant when visiting the Lancaster area. Its our go to.
Food is local and fresh. Always delicious specials and regular menu
favorites. We have never had a bad meal there and we have been going there for
the past several years. Menu has a wide array of choices to choose from that
never disappoints. Excellent cocktails and desserts add to the dining experience.
Beautiful location and wonderful ambiance along with the attentive and friendly
wait staff makes for a pleasurable and memorable dinner.

GREENFIELD RESTAURANT - superb lunch, great ambiance, comp. appreciated
Today we did lunch on the florally exquisite patio. My burger was excellent and my partner rated the chicken salad on a croissant as the best she has ever had. Christian our server did an admirable job. Lastly we appreciated the owners comp gift certificate of 2 drinks for a previous rare less than satisfactory dining experience.

Always a fabulous meal at the Greenfield. Food could have been hotter and service a little more prompt but I chalked it up to the lack of help these days. Live jazz in the background made for a most enjoyable evening out.

Our 1st time here and not sure how we missed it! Beautiful facility, nice bar area, great cocktails and an awesome bartender in Eva. Dinner was perfect! I had Diver Scallops on Corn Risotto and my wife had Pork Schnitzel. Both were done perfectly. Wine selection was tasty. All in all a wonderful meal. Looking forward to our next visit here!

We had several items from the menu including but not limited to the short rib egg rolls, the fresh calamari, the salmon, the grilled ribeye steak and the linguini seafood pasta. Everyone totally enjoyed their selection. One member of our party went off menu and made a special request that was granted - no problem. Our server, Kim B., was extremely pleasant, accommodating and attentive. All in all, we had a great time.

This was the first time we ate at Greenfield’s having moved to the area fairly recently. The food was exceptional and considering the staffing challenges during the global pandemic we are facing, the service was good. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back!

Highly recommend this restaurant for their food, service, beautiful environment, and especially their outdoor patio seating. We’ve been coming here for many years and the food has been consistently excellent! My only negative comment is the music they had piped through the speakers out on the patio. It was way too LOUD, and the speakers must be old and in need of repair because the “music” was full of static with crackling sounds. We had to ask twice to turn down the music, and when it was finally turned completely OFF, several nearby tables applauded. People want to be able to converse when they dine without having to yell over the music to be heard. Other than that one incident, everything was lovely for our group.

This restaurant is clearly understaffed, as we waited over an hour for our meal. The "pork schnitzel" was a pork patty smashed (not a cutlet) and covered in overdone vegetables. We were in the restaurant for 2 and 1/2 hours. Service was spotty and the food was just okay bordering on bad. I do not recommend this restaurant.

We have been there many times before, but this time was a little different. Salads were not the best, entree was very good. My spouse ordered a drink did not taste anything in it but tonic water. We will try there again.

This was my wife's birthday and at our table was a birthday card signed all of the staff including the chef. We started at the bar for cocktails before going to our table. Our appetizers (spring rolls and calamari) were delicious. The entrée course followed quickly. It was hot and the filet was done perfectly. I would definitely return to The Greenfield the next time we are in the Lancaster area.

Our dinners & service were very good. Service was great.
Just a few things could have been better: It was very cold with table next to 2 vents. Server put a menu over vent for me. We seemed too close to other tables considering Covid situation. Could hear, in equal measure, the bar music and the dining room music at the same time.

The lunch menu was not extensive, but the choices were varied and our selections (Quiche, Fish & Chips) were extremely well prepared. The staff were uniformly
courteous, attentive and competent. The ambience was relaxed and inviting.
This was our first visit to the Greenfield, but it won't be our last. We do not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking fine dining in a welcoming and comfortable setting.

we were sat in an "overflow" room of the restaurant even though e were there at 4:30 when the restaurant opened. A short while later, an elderly woman entered after falling, bleeding, and loudly talking in very gross descriptive words about her wounds. I have a weak stomach and couldn't finish my meal; we were taken to the bar to finish our coffee. Very disappointing since this is a high-priced restaurant.
