We happened upon this restaurant while driving through Leesburg Virginia. From the time we were greeted at the door to the time that we left our service was wonderful! The menu offered several different options, that night the specialties all included some type of seafood. We didn't take advantage of anything because we have a seafood allergy in our family....

Went here on New Years Eve. Did not know what to expect but was surprised by the unusual layout and design of the restaurant. Got lucky to be seated on the second floor by the piano(which was not used). There was a live band playing some quiet music(romantic I would say) and which did a great job. The downside of... More

We recently visited Lightfoot for dinner again, this time to ring out 2016. The prix fixe dinner menu, based largely on the standard dinner menu, provided more excellent choices than we could fit into a single dinner. All of Chef Ingrid's selections that we had were excellent, including the French onion soup, baked oysters, pork shank, rack of lamb (with... More

I took my mom here for her birthday. She is from out of town and I wanted to give her a nice experience. First we waited 45 min for the waiter to bring the food, he brought mine out and it was not what I ordered.... some kind of chicken sandwich I think, and I would never order it because... More

Lightfoot provides, time and again, great service, value, food and ambiance. Its a great place for date night or an evening out with friends. Food and drinks are consistently great.

The "crown jewel" of Leesburg. Just right for any occasion day or night. Outdoor patio dining is a must when the weather is good. Food is always excellent and menu keeps it's classics and rotates in seasonal specials. Book ahead for large parties or weekend dining Thursday-Sunday.

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
