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.

Overpriced for the overall experience. Ambiance was lacking. Food was excellent but presentation was dated.

Attentive service. Chef John sat and chatted with us. Cocktails done right. Fresh ingredients expertly prepared. We can count on one hand the restaurants in Lancaster that compete with the rest of the world - the Greenfield Inn is one!

Ask to sit in dining room, was told only available was table in bar, right next to the very loud piano and all the clanging and banging from the bar. Soon after sat down, another couple came in and said can’t you find something nicer. Answer was “ no problem” and out they went. Nice Easter dinner that had been planned for weeks and first time out in a long time.

Love the restaurant been there many times for brunch 1st time for a dinner. Was there with my partner loved my crab cakes but the steak by friend ordered was very tough
and he didn't care for the vegs that were cooked al dente. Service great and the owner and his wife stopped by the table and talked. They remember us from doing brunch. In there defense my friend should of ordered his steak med instead of asking for it to be slightly pink. Will definitely be returning.

Had a great time; food was presented well and delicious, great service and enjoyable atmosphere - could talk at a more than reasonable voice level which was welcomed. Definitely one of the more upscale dining experiences I have had in Lancaster.

Great place, I proposed to my wife (years ago) there and the server was brilliant. Only one issue, you do not offer any vegetarian or vegan dinners and a restaurant of this caliber should, others do.

Food was delicious! We are from out of town and visited Lancaster for our anniversary. The Greenfield came up as a popular restaurant and it did not disappoint! The place was so charming and everyone we encountered was just lovely. We ordered the filet mignon and the sea bass with the calamari appetizer and it was delicious! We will definitely be back!!

First time visit for our 28th wedding anniversary and it was wonderful. All staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and everything was very clean. The food was delicious. We have the cheese board and drinks to start with. Very good selection of local cheese with fruit, nuts, honeycomb (very yummy) and a sweet bread. My husband had the crab cakes and I had the special sea bass. All was perfectly prepared and plated. We were too full for dessert! We’d definitely go back.

Although everything was amazing, one thing that we were a little disappointed in this time is that I made our High top seating on March 2nd for Friday, March 19th @ 5pm.
We love the high tops near the bar and like that it is an actual option for the Greenfield when booking....upon arrival we were taken right past two empty high tops, I told the girl who sat us as we passed them, that we had reserved the high top, but she said oh they are both reserved. So I was confused.
One couple was seated soon after, but the other high top we normally like to sit at was unoccupied till closer to 6pm..So not sure if Open Table and their Booking system are in sync? We did enjoy our little table near the window & the piano and like I said it was very enjoyable as always.

We arrived at 430 p.m. as we had an event at 7 p.m. Greenfield staff were warm and inviting. We were not rushed. Our orders were beautifully presented and delicious. We really enjoyed the pianist also.

The food is awesome. Well prepared and presented. Nice portions. Not too formal, but also nice enough to dress up. Tables are a little closer than I had liked, but we were also in the middle of the room. Value for service and food is hard to find

The atmosphere was nice, but we were seated by a door to the outside patio positioned in the bar area. The service was slow, the door was mediocre as the scallop dish I ordered was watery when served. The dessert also was subpar and disappointing. My wife felt the same in regards to her filet mignon.

Nice atmosphere. Food was just "okay". Salmon on the salad was very good. Calamari was average at best. The grilled chicken on the salad lacked seasoning/flavor. The crab cakes were crisp and good on the outside but the inside was soggy and "mayonaisey". Selections for Chardonnay by the glass are very cheap varieties. I would have expected better by-the-glass selections.

I wanted to give this restaurant 5 stars, but the service and the kitchen made two considerable errors that affected the score. This was our first time at Greenfield Restaurant. The food is outstanding, and it is evident that the chef is top-notch. However, I ordered the scallops and *crunched* my way through shells. When I brought this to the attention of our server, I was told "I will let the kitchen know." When nothing happened, I told another server, who said the same. No one came out of the kitchen to inquire, nor did the manager come over to the table. I hope this review brings this to the attention of the owner and the chef so they can ensure the experience is not repeated with another customer.
