Dinner party in Lancaster or Chester County?

I'm looking to go out to dinner with neighbors, about 10-16 adults. We are looking for a somewhat upscale restaurant to relax, eat and have some drinks. Any recommendations in the Lancaster or Chester County areas? Thanks.

  1. Seven Stars Inn has wonderful prime rib (they have lots of other things, but are known for PR- actually they recommend you reserve your quantity with the reservation because it sells out) It's 32-40oz!!

    1. Off the top of my head, I think that Gibraltar in Lancaster would fit nicely.


      1. I would have to agree with Shawn...Gibraltar is a great call. Very elegant and refined, yet casual and stylish in a European way. They are well known for having the best food in the area and offer a diverse menu with an emphasis on fresh seafood and local organic ingredients.

        1. In Chester County, I'd recommend Sovana Bistro in the Kennett area. They have a nice, separate dining room that they use for small group gatherings, and it's BYO. Another place that's quite nice, especially for outdoor dining, and rarely gets mentioned here, is the Grille at Hartefeld Golf Club, in Hockessin, DE, just south of Kennett.
