My first date with my now wife was here (at their original location) and we returned last week, 18 year later. We haven't been back in several years, but they have maintained a high standard. Salads/soup were substantial, great flavors, and well-plated. The crab cake dinner was spectacular in taste and appearance. Seafood gumbo also excellent. Service was attentive and... More

Recently went back to the Lightfoot - had an amazing Steak and Cake special - a perfectly cooked filet along with a generous crabcake. Amazing. ALso can not say enough about the roasted tomato soup. My favorite soup. Lightfoot never fails to impress and satisfy.

An impromptu luncheon at this lovely Restaurant in Downtown Historic Leesburg, Va. Formerly a Bank. A nice assortment of Seasonal soups were had by three and a very good Arugula, goats cheese, walnut salad. A Beautiful Quiche, Greek inspired Steak salad, a croissant, Brie and honeyed ham sandwich and a Cajun Spaghetti. The Desserts were all memorable. Definitely worth a... More

We gave this a average rating because we had a mixed experience. First, we were pleased to be able to obtain a table on a busy lunch day and while our server was gracious, service was not always prompt. But we were disappointed with the quiche special and $12 for a bowl of crab bisque seemed a little much. Also,... More

Out for a birthday dinner and wanted to try someplace new to us. They were busy, but our reservation got us to the table promptly. The service was good but the food was up and down. The French onion soup was good, the ham biscuits were good, but the game hen flavor was a little weird and the lamb chops... More

Had lunch with friends at the old bank venue on New Year's Eve. Excellent and filling entrees. Three of us had their Gyro platter (must be eaten with a fork as it overflows the Pita bread.

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
