Casual Fine Dining…with Character

Life is made of the places you go and the people with whom you go there. C’est La Vie is a bistro that invites you to enjoy the small things in life, in the company of good friends. Our inviting, playful atmosphere along with our delicate yet satisfying cuisine makes for a place truly like no other. We invite you to experience everything C’est La Vie has to offer — and watch the world go by with us.


Artisanal, yet casual, and above all deeply enjoyable — that is the philosophy at the heart of our food.  At C’est La Vie we craft both large and small plates meant to excite the senses and appeal to a wide range of tastes. As another way to pay tribute to life in Lancaster, we source our ingredients from the rich community of local farmers, butchers, and more.  Discover our frequently changing menu.

C’est La Vie

That’s life…and it can be sweet.  Inspired by the famous Parisian bistros, C’est La Vie is a destination for meeting friends, old and new, and sharing an experience together. Whether it’s a carefree Sunday afternoon or an elegantly-playful late night costume party, life happens here. We want to invite you to our one-of-a-kind bistro to have a drink or share a meal.  See the scenes of what’s been happening lately — and make your reservation.
