On my trips to Virginia I have do dined at Lightfoot a number of times and have found them always very good. Not this time. The service was good, the Mimosas were mediocre at best ( how can you not make a good Mimosa). The after Christmas crowd was light so maybe everyone had the post holiday blahs. I would... More

My wife and I had lunch here the other day. The restaurant is in an old bank. The atmosphere is terrific and the food was excellent with good portions - right size not too big or too small. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. All in all a great experience. I would say it was a little pricey at about... More

We dined on a very busy night in Leesburg, the night of both the city Christmas parade and the Jingle Jam concert at the Tally-Ho Theater. My party of four had dinner reservations a 6:00, and were promptly seated on time and soon greeted by our waiter. Our waiter was friendly, adept and very attentive throughout the meal, and took...

My friends and I decided to spend a day shopping in Leesburg and wanted to pick a nice, yet casual place for lunch. We picked Lightfoot and had a fabulous time. The prices are reasonable, the menu had a wide variety to pick from, and the service was excellent. We started with deviled eggs with bacon... How could you go... More

I've had brunch here in the past, and was very happy, so thought it would be worth a try for dinner. I was very happy that I did. The restaurant was beautifully, tastefully decorated for the holidays, and full of positive energy. Once we started into the drinks and food I could see why. Our cocktails were creative and tasty,...

We choose to go to Lightfoot for birthday celebrations and while the food was very good, we were terribly disappointed in our service. The gentleman that served us today at lunch clearly wasn't trained properly. He was notified it was a birthday celebration. Two days ago at Tuskies for another birthday celebration, the birthday girl was treated much differently and... More

We love to go to Lightfoot for our anniversary or another special occasion. Everything we've eaten there has been delicious, but their filet mignon is unparalleled. We savor every bite.
