Great to sit down at a nice restaurant with charm and outstanding service. Our meal was excellent - steaks were done perfectly! A bit pricey perhaps for an every day visit ($50 per person w/appetizer, w/o wine) however, an excellent choice for special occasions. They have a nice bar area set back behind the dining area. We've found our new... More

Great food and nice menu with variety but they are in serious need of more waitstaff. The waiter should write down the order!!!! We had 3 mistakes in our order and had to wait to have everything corrected. Only one coffee refill in a 70 minute lunch. Disappointing experience today.

Special birthday dinner with family turned into a marathon waiting for service. I knew Saturday night would be busy but there was no excuse to be seated at 7:05pm when our reservation was for 6:30 pm and only after we threatened to leave and go somewhere else for dinner. Once seated the marathon began. I was hoping for top notch... More

With the recent improvement of restaurant options in downtown Leesburg, we really only went to the lightfoot bar to get a drink while waiting for a table at another restaurant. Our opinion was, this is a place for old church ladies who fall for the stuffy bank decor...we had a long wait for a table at another restaurant one night... More

Went blindly for lunch recently during a quick drive-through Leesburg. the menu looked good that was posted on the outside, so we took a chance. From the time we walked in the door, we knew we wanted to come back again. Lightfoot was originally an old bank and they still have the big old steel doors. The setting is elegant... More

Nice atmosphere and service however the food is just average. We have tried this restaurant several times now hoping each time it will be better but it just never is. The food is just OK and not worth the cost.

My wife and I go here sometimes for happy hour. There are a good number of food options available which are always tasty. It is a nice upscale bar and you can enjoy the environment without spending too much money. We will return.

Lightfoot is in an old bank building with glitz expected of an old-time small town bank. It also has a fireplace, a good menu, and various table clusters throughout. I enjoyed my entree salad and the sweet potato dumplings with ice cream and caramel sauce for dessert.

My wife and I decided to stop for lunch. We had been to Middleburg and was going to have lunch at the Red Fox but they were only serving an expensive brunch, so we headed down to Leesburg. We were hoping to be able to sit outside but they were slammed, but we were seated in a quiet corner with... More

The architecture and décor is eye catching and fun. This once upon a time bank now sports a sort of Parisian flair with large art deco posters and surprising flashes of red. I was not too hungry so chose a cup of soup and the fried green tomato starter. Husband opted for the burger and fries. It was all good... More
