On recent stay at the Lancaster we had a splurge, staying in the DeGeorge Suite, so nice that we decided on dinner en suite at the beautiful dining table. So we ordered room service from the Bistro and the Filet Mignon was marvelous, tender and flavorful, as good as any high end steak restaurant in town. The Lancaster Burger was... More

It can be crowded and a bit loud, but both the food and the service are excellent. Not cheap, but what good meal is these days. Recommended.

Great dinner. Environment. Servers outstanding. We had grilled seabass on spinach with asparagus. Great cauliflower appetizer. We love this place. High end price but worth the experience.

We had a lovely dinner with friends before heading to the Alley Theater. Service and food was excellent and par for the course. Nice to be able to valet park and walk across the street to the theater, as well.

Thank William D
