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

One of the top restaurants in Leesburg. In a restored old bank building so the decor is very cool/interesting. The service is usually excellent, although reservations recommended especially on weekends. The bar area is fun but usually full.

Love, love, ❤️ this restaurant! Get the fried green tomatoes and ham biscuits to start. No. You MUST. Then for lunch - the "Grilled cheese of the day" never fails! "Everybody's Favorite salad". Gotta finish with "the worlds smallest Sundae"

Recently went to Lightfoot for lunch. I hadn't been in awhile and I forgot how good it is. I had Ahi tuna salad and t was excellent. The tuna was perfectly cooked and it was a large portion. The service is outstanding.

Lightfoot has something delicious for everyone. My friend is lactose-intolerant, and there were good choices on the menu. At the other end of the spectrum, I had the three-cheese grilled sandwich, which came with tomato soup topped with, yes, more cheese and a small Caesar salad (with parmesan cheese). The restaurant--in a handsome building that used to be a bank--is... More

I sure like getting to a restaurant when I have reservations and being greeted and seated right away. Attentive waitstaff, there when you want them, not hovering over the table throughout the meal. I really appreciate a waiter knowing not just the specials but what is included in the special and the price. Food was terrific and made for a... More

Lightfoot is known as the crown jewel of Leesburg. Situated in the heart of the historic district's town center in the old People's National Bank building. It is a beautifully restored space with soaring ceilings, a piano bar, an elegant yet casual main bar and unparalleled food. Chef Ingrid puts her heart into every dish on the menu and if... More

We were really excited to try Lightfoot; we had heard great things about the food. The food was good, but our overall experience was such a disappointment that it will be hard to justify going back. We had a 7:30 reservation and arrived a few minutes earlier. The host told us our table wasn't ready. When we inquired how long... More

I told myself not to start on a negative foot...but there was a dog in the kitchen. I inquired about their allowing if dogs and told it was the chef/owner's friends dog. That doesn't make it ok for me. Dogs are NOT allowable on any kitchen area. With that being said, our food was great. We started with the ham... More
