This was a wonderful couples meal. We definitely will be back. The setting is a former 1880s bank building, with the facade remaining, and the full interior preserved as well, right down to the interior workings of the old vault mechanism on display in the dining room/bar area. The ceilings are huge, with tons of columns and cornice work--very cool.... More

Visited for lunch during the Leesburg Garden Show. Waiter apologized repeatedly for long wait. We sat outside and were occupied by all the garden show visitors and were not in a hurry. Outside area is not beside restaurant. Weird. Food was worth the wait. I had Peking Duck Quesadillas which were appetizers, but was huge enough for entree. Hubby had... More

Housed inside an old bank building, Lightfoot decorates the outside and inside with many lion statutes, large and small. Also on the walls are filled with old posters seemingly from the last century (i.e. could be really from last century or new one made to look like from that era) with French themes. Paired with an old fire place, large... More

Lightfoot is one of my favorite places in Leesburg. The restaurant has great ambience located in an old bank and transports you back in time to early Leesburg. The food is great and I would put it up against any high end restaurant. The prices are great and is perfect for a night out. They have a good bar to... More

I know it's popular, and I've really tried to embrace the mystique, but there's something about this place that turns me off. Located in a former bank, the main room is cavernous and dark. The tables feel exposed - there's no sense of intimate ambience - while service comes across as a bit pompous and self-important. The food is fine,... More

This is an upscale restaurant. Great for a special event/ dinner. We went with 7 other couples and had a great time. The decor is elegant, yet they've also retained some fun decor from the bank roots. Excellent service! Especially for a large party The service was timely and responsive, and food was served hot. The menu is pretty varied.... More

One of our favorite restaurants to host a celebration whether it's a party for two or twenty-two. This establishment is clearly the crown jewel of the Leesburg and it's very romantic and quant. The crowd is very sophisticated and hip, and you'll experience both young and older guests enjoying dinner and a cocktail. The bartenders are professional and helpful and... More
