If you are wondering if this is a good place to go, wonder no more. Take a date, a client, family or just go upstairs to the bar and order the deviled eggs. I had Pot Roast to go and it was awesome. I love Fenz. I tell every visitor to come here and no one has ever complained. Yes... More

We've been systematically trying out the restaurants in the area since moving here about a year ago. I am very sorry that we didn't try this one sooner, because we will definitely be returning soon. The hostess, Annie, was cheerful and professional. Our server, Lance, was very, very good. Since it was our first visit, we gave him free rein... More

Atmosphere was great. Host very inviting, as was our server. Had bruschetta for an app, tasty but toast was wet and soggy. My wife and I both had filet, have to say not the best, but OK. In my opinion the bread thing should change, some patrons want more that one roll without asking each time. As we were leaving... More

For an appetizer - we had the fried pickles which were really good. My daughter had the filet mignon and it had a lovely flavor (I tried a piece!). I had the burger which came with a deviled egg (so cute and creamy!). My husband had the meatloaf which he enjoyed. So we all liked our meals and our daughter... More

The outside of Fenz is blah. All brick and boring - really nothing to look at and the outside doesn't scream COME IN! However, I WAS WRONG! As soon as you walk in the decor and ambience is inviting, calming and chic. I was with a group of 12 and we were seated upstairs. I didn't see a bad table... More

FENZ menu has many sorta-familiar dishes, but they're certainly not "the usual." For an appetizer, I had deviled eggs that were so-o-o creamy and good, served with beets and pancetta. My entree was basically chicken and dumplings, but the herbed dumplings were light and tender, the chicken thickly sliced (crispy skin on); and with a few root veggies, everything was... More

I had an amazing mule and my wife had a manhattan that she found "nearly perfectly crafted." She was disappointed that it did not go up to the rim of the glass. The fried pickles are a delicious appetizer and we enjoyed the pumpkin ravioli appetizer. The main meal, however, was underwhelming. My wife's filet was undercooked. When you order... More

Our group was vey happy with their meals at this restaurant. The salmon was terrific and the shrimp and scallop risotto was also wonderful. The salads were exceptional as starters and save room for the desserts. Slight disappointment in the lobster roll, it was actually a lobster slider and the wait staff was brand new. But an excellent choice for... More

Very nice little restaurant. Good bar, attentive service. Menu is a bit limited, but food is very good. Not much choice for vegetarians though...

We often have dinner here while visiting family in Lancaster. Fenz never disappoints! My new fav drink is the XO martini

Description
The restaurant features a contemporary bistro-style menu, formed from the idea that casual dining can be stylish, and that some of our favorite comfort foods can benefit with the remix of contemporary flair. In addition to revised classics, the menu includes small plate "tastes" to share or enjoy with a cocktail. Daily specials from Chef Daniella Ward complete the culinary scenario by offering inspirations of the moment, influenced by the season.
