Let me be clear, this is not a restaurant. It is a Bistro! The menu is limited but everything is delicious. I frequent the Bistro for the wonderful cocktails supplemented by the food offerings. It is a place were I meet most of my new dates and it never disappoints. It does offer inn like rooms above on the second... More

This spot was on our bucket list in Lambertville and it did not disappoint. It was a beautiful Saturday morning and we ate outside on their porch. Food was very good and I loved the presentation. I had the grilled artichokes and beet salad. YUM! My better half had mushroom bisque and an egg salad sandwich. We'll be back.

Pretty much what the title says. View, four and a half, service, two, drinks, two. My wife and I stopped for a late drink. No problem finding an outside table. Looked through the drinks menu, took too much time for our somewhat pushy hostess, it seemed. Not impressed with the wine list (dr. Frank's the only riesling? really?), went for... More

Funny sometimes how you don't go to places just around the corner in your own neighborhood -- today we trotted out to check out the Left Bank Bistro bar at the Lambertville House, a lovely small hotel -- and said the same thing we always say on our annual visits here: Why don't we come more often? It was absolutely... More

Amazed by the bartender/waitress! She tended bar, took our orders, cleared our table all as a one person show with a smile and kind words. Got one order wrong, but it was corrected within seconds (literally!) Small cozy place. with nice traditional decor. We were lucky, went on a weeknight and got a table right away. There are only a...

While the food was good and we enjoyed it, there were a lot of little things to make this experience not a very pleasant one. They brought the wrong food...ok, not a big deal. No napkins, no utensils...we had to ask. No water refills. First cup of coffee was cold...the next one was some sort of flavored coffee (not the... More

Enjoyed a couple of hours sitting on the front porch of this French-styled cafe with tapas-like dishes and inviting ambiance. Nice view of happenin' Lambertville on busy Saturday evening. Worth the visit.

What a pleasant experience at this intimate, relaxed, cozy, bar - Bistro. Don’t be surprised when you walk in the door and find couches and comfy chairs instead of table and chairs. We have stopped here a number of times for drinks but never knew it as a dining experience but it was an excellent experience. Even the menu presentation... More

Very relaxing place to sit and have a chat or dinner. We like the inside seats next to the fireplace.Many enjoy the outdoor seating year round! Every time we visit our cocktails are made perfect. You can meet new people as the seating arrangements allow you to chat! Nice wine list! Enjoy!
