Always delicious and a wonderful experience!
Great food, service and ambience! They made the experience special for my birthday. I will be back.
Waiting a 1/2 hr for a coffee was unacceptable, especially since we asked multiple people. The restaurant was very busy and the server was clearly overextended. Our Bloody Mary's came and we still waited for coffee. By the time the server took our order, we were starving. They were gracious enough to accept a gift card that had expired the month before and this was likely due to the chaos. The food was worth it and the portions large, but expect a Sunday visit to be especially leisurely.
It as a very good lunch to celebrate a birthday and also for any other occasion
It’s just not the food - as wonderful as that is -it the impeccable service. And by that I mean prompt, welcoming, patient, helpful service. I have been dining at Lightfoot's for over fifteen years - the quality has never wavered. They consistently provide a wonderful experience.
We loved the setting of the restaurant, an old bank with a huge vault door. The service was great, everyone was very attentive and polite and quick. The food was just good, not great and not bad in any way, but we didn’t leave wanting to go back. A nice first experience and glad we went.
We have dined at Lightfoot dozen of times and have never been disappointed.
Mediocre food, OK service, surly manager/host
I've been to Lightfoot probably 12 times for Sunday brunch because it's a favorite for a visiting relative. There are always six of us and my relative prefers one round table (instead of a rectangle) in the rear of the restaurant that's comfortable for her with mobility issues. Unfortunately, the restaurant flat out refuses to reserve a specific table or let me get there super early to claim it. The host is just surly about it. I've never encountered a restaurant that refuses any and all requests for a certain table for a special family event when the restaurant isn't even crowded.
The food is so-so...interesting combinations but it never really hits the mark. The kitchen is inconsistent about honoring simple special requests (like type of cheese or omitting sour cream, etc) and servers are not fluent in understanding the ingredients of items that have been on the menu for years.
The mimosas as allegedly bottomless but you can only get a refill if the server comes back to the table, so it's in effect a mimosa plus maybe a refill.
My family keeps going back because it's the only upscale restaurant with brunch in the heart of downtown Leesburg. I am more dedicated than ever to lobby we go somewhere else after the rudeness of the host at the front stand last weekend.
Took my mother sister and wife to eat at Lightfoot
As perMy request, they gave us a nice quiet booth in the back. We started off in the mail with two appetizers; the deviled eggs which are always wonderful and the oysters Rockefeller which were a delight . Everyone decided to get the same entrée which was a Gyro and it was very delicious along with the zucchini fries.
For desert we ordered Spinoni Sunday’s; as well as a lemon cake.
We left happy
Excellent food and service, wonderful setting
Great experience, as always. Great food, ambiance, service, and location.
Our dining experience was quite good. Our party had four different type meals. The pork shank with vegetables was superb! The others enjoyed a cheeseburger and fries, fish and chips, and the braised duck breast and vegetables. The wait staff was a bit slow but very accommodating. We also enjoyed ice cream sundaes with coffee. All enjoyed our dinners and vowed to return.
Great food. Great service.
This restaurant was recommended to us and it all expectations. From the cordial welcome at the door to the beautiful China setting on the white table cloth, it was lovely from beginning to end. Megan was our server and she was attentive but not smothering. We all ordered the mahi-mahi which was prepared exquisitely. Our water glasses were never empty and we left extremely pleased.
We had to wait
Love Lightfoot for a nice lunch. The Fish and chips was crispy and perfect. Bay scallops were a bit over cooked in the pasta dish. The sauce and pasta were delicious. The peach ice cream strawberry sundae was very peachy good.
Excellent in every way. Our server Fred made it even more enjoyable. Hope to return soon.
Great place - go again soon. Excellent food and service as well as ambiance.
Just a special occasion.
Excellent in every way. Very anxious to return.
Thank you Craig...23rd anniversary dinner was perfect!
Used to work here in high school and still come back with my wife many years later. Love the food, the atmosphere, the wine list, and location. Service always top notch as well.
For years, Lightfoot has been a “go-to” restaurant for my friends and I. It doesn’t disappoint!
Delightful evening from start to finish and our waitress was the model of decorum and attentiveness.
Great as always - a place that keep coming back to.
Beautiful location! Excellent cuisine. Our server was evidently new and management corrected the error and the server. That's the sign of an excellent restaurant. Enjoy!
Awesome as always! Started out with crab bisque and fried green tomatoes-delicious! Then, everyone’s favorite salad and French dip. We will be back next weekend, it was so good!
Incredible meal and superb wait staff/service!!
We went for Father’s Day last night. We were promptly and warmly greeted and seated right away. The food was very good. We had the cheese sampler to start. Our son had the kids spaghetti which he loved. I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the steak salad. Our server seemed a little disappointed that we weren’t ordering cocktails or wine but the meal was a nice one and we enjoyed it.
The waitress was awesome. She was very personable, patient and quite accommodating. Will go again.
Great food and service, really enjoyed the filet.
Our service was good yet the kitchen seemed a bit slow during our visit. Usually service is quite timely.
We've been going here several times a year since it opened and have enjoyed our meals. This last visit was a bit off with new staff and training that could have been a bit more attentive and would should have been alert when food was have left on the plate; no one came back to check on the food until it was time to clear the table.
Lovely, as always!
The salad with fried oysters was huge as well as delicious.
1 star. They did not have our reservation and told us we would have to wait. When we offered to go to the bar to the hostess she said we could be that she would not come find us (it was not crowded and the bar was ten feet away and small). We ask to speak with the manage and she brings him over and we are seated immediately. The place is maybe over half full. Our server takes forever bringing us things and is irritated the whole time. Got a water refill maybe once. Food took over an hour to come out after ordering. Got seated at 8:15 for an 8 reservations and got our soup at 9:00 and our dishes almost at 10. My duck was almost cold rare as was his filet. We decided we had spent too much time wasted here and ate without complaining and left. What a terrible experience.
Great service , good food, nice setting.
Service was incredibly slow and waiter was not attentive at all. After waiting an hour and a half for our entrees, we asked what was taking so long, he said he would talk to the manager. No apology, no manager, no comped dessert or an offer of a glass of wine - nothing.
Will not recommend nor be returning.
Lightfoot was great. OpenTable, not so great. The reservation was not received by the restaurant. They told me they were having trouble all day receiving bookings through Open Table. Fortunately the restaurant was able to seat me. Take care of your restaurant partners if you want diners to use your service.
