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

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Fenz Restaurant last weekend and had a fabulous dinner with great service. The choice of entrees is limited, but our meals were excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

Operated by an owner/manager with deep and wide hospitality experience for many years, this is indeed a dining treat that is coupled with a great staff Make sure to enjoy some of Skip's treats from the bar. It continues to be #1.

We went there for our birthdays. We sat downstairs and had Skip as our waiter/bartender. He made a great Lemon Drop Martini, just the way I wanted, and also a great Old Fashion, which my husband really liked. He was also a great waiter. We both had the Seared Shrimp and Scallops over Risotto and I ordered a small side... More

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.
