Outdoor dining experience was great. Weather was fine. Radiant propane heaters were turned on as the sun went down. Exceptional seasonal cocktails and salads.

I took my husband for his birthday. He had the steak and fries and loved it. I had chicken and potatoes over greens. Very good. His free dessert was a great! Our server was very nice and efficient! Thank you!

Loved our first time here! We came to celebrate our anniversary and they treated us to champagne and a free dessert. It was a very nice evening, and the food was all delicious. Our waitress was very sweet.

We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end while at Per Diem. Our cocktails were original, the chicken liver toast is worth the trip alone and the lamb medallion special was truly noteworthy. Our server was delightful and she went beyond the extra mile to make us feel not only safe while dining at Per Diem but special as we were celebrating our birthdays. Thank you again for a fun night out on the town!

We were in a room that seemed like a converted waiting area, where small round tables were put in a line, along a long cushioned bench-type seat, with a chair on the other side of the table. It was awkward and loud, and we were seated close to other couples, with some Plexiglas in-between. Also, the meal took a very long time to come out and no mention was made of that. HOWEVER, the food was absolutely fantastic! So, that saved the day (evening). The price was good for the quality of the meal itself.

The bar was beautiful but the side of the restaurant where we sat felt like cafeteria chairs and uncomfortable. The server was very nice and the food was just ok.

The food was good and adequate. We didn't find it to be superb. We had ordered both take-out for our hotel room from Per Diem one evening during our stay at the Rock Lititz Hotel, and we had breakfast one morning there. The prices were fair. The atmosphere was very nice. My only complaint is that it took a while for our order to be taken. We waited close to 15 minutes before our table was approached by a server.

The food took longer than it should to get. 3 of us received our meal while the other had to wait. The waiter kept apologizing and then offered us our first round of drinks for free. He was awesome. The food was great and so was the restaurant. I would go again. I feel they did a great job with social distancing. Had plexiglass between every table.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Per Diem. The service was outstanding and our dinner delicious. Per Diem treated us to a glass of Prosecco and a free dessert. Our server helped make our evening extra special! I should add that they followed strict Covid protocols, which included plexiglass partitions. Kudos to them for a job well done!!

We had the Farro/butternut squash salad (with chicken on it) and the Chicken Schnitzel. Both were beautifully presented and tasted fantastic! There was a nice selection of beers and wines. We weren't rushed and our wait staff couldn't have been nicer or more considerate. We really appreciate having such a nice place to eat in the Lititz area.

Nearby table had a large group that was very noisy and distracting but we realize that this places the management in a difficult situation.

But overall, food and service was fantastic!
