    In my opinion, the greatest compliment a dining establishment may receive is that of "consistency" provided everything is always consistent. The food quality is consistently outstanding, the ambiance is upscale, yet caters to casual diners and most importantly, the wait staff, who have the ability to make or break your dining experience. From a welcome smile at the front door, to checking for your needs while dining, to a parting thank you as you depart, "consistently good!". Worth a visit, you won't be disappointed.

    Lovely evening at Christine's. Compared to previous visits it was a quiet night. Our waitress was the BEST! We were two friends catching up after not seeing each other for months....she totally respected that and gave us the combination of space and fab service. We selected Christine's know we would have the opportunity to either make a healthy selection or go over the top. Good healthy choices are available along with a wonderful chocolate dessert!!!

    Highly recommended. Server awful. Never explained specials, soup, etc. even after we had to ask her about the family style salad and told her it was our first time there. Pricey, wouldn't mind but my pasta with crab meat had flecks of crab meat no pieces.

    I'm moving out of the state and a friend picked Christine's for a going away dinner. It is so close to my house, I could walk there, but I never knew we had such a great restaurant so close to us. It was a quiet week night, so only a few tables had guests. The service was good, but not great...but the food was delicious. The breads were fresh. The corn chowder was devine, and the pork shank, was just spectacular. And I almost forgot the calamari. ..simply the best that I have ever had. Too bad I probably won't ever be back in the area...

    4 of us enjoyed a wonderful evening together! We were given our time with dinner and after dinner. Not rushed at all. We really appreciated that and that is what makes a nice evening with friends - the great food and service was a huge bonus. We took care to realize it was time to leave and was thanked for our business. Professional, clean, great food and service. Will surely go again!

    We previously had dinner here and enjoyed it so we came back for breakfast only to be disappointed. It wasn't bad... It was just ..meh. Food was ok. Not bad but lacking. No cinnamon flavor in the French toast. No real maple syrup. Omelet sounded exciting but my spouse cod have cooked it better. Waitress seemed grumpy and slow. Other tables seated after us had their food before us. Won't do breakfast again but will give dinner another chance.

    Six of us had dinner there, and it was a great time in every way. The waitress was attentive and helpful, and just very pleasant and friendly - made for great interactions. Everything that we ordered was excellent - as an example I had a fantastic mushroom soup and a delicious crab cake entree. The desserts were great, too. Last but not least, they made a wonderful gluten free chicken parm with GF pasta for my husband. I have no doubt we will be back again.

    This was my second visit to Christine's as I am a new resident and was pleased that a neighbor made the recommendation. We were greeted warmly when we arrived. Our server, Mike, was excellent & made some very nice recommendations for dinner and dessert Mike was very attentive to us without being intrusive and is extremely polite. We will be happy to return with friends.

    A lovely neighborhood gem, serving typical American fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I've been for dinner once, ages ago and I remember it was good. We went recently for a ladies' brunch and enjoyed eggs Benedict, a delicious banana walnut pancake, a chicken wrap and a steak quesedilla (a special item). Everyone loved their meal and we will plan to go back.

    We always love when we dine at Christine's. The only issue we had this time was there was a teachers retirement party and to say they were LOUD is an understatement! The seated us on the "porch", (which is a separate room) but even through the closed door & windows we could still hear them. We didn't let it bother us, as we know it was beyond their control. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. Our food was fantastic. We will definitely be back!

    On Tuesday evening three friends and I enjoyed a delicious meal at Christine's of Yardley. Donna, our server, was very attentive and very patient with us because one in our party was coming from out of the area and took a wrong turn. Consequently, she was about an hour late. The host was able to give good directions and she finally joined us. All the restaurant employees with whom we interacted were very courteous and helpful. Our appetizers were very good as were our dinners. The seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked. Dining at Christine's proved to be an extremely pleasant experience.

    I had fond memories of eating here a year ago so excited about return. Our lady server was wonderful. Atmosphere pleasant. I should have ordered one of the specials but I wanted the Pescatore linguini. The seafood was awful; the calamari like rubber bands, shrimp overcooked, some of my clams had not opened, the linguini sauce watery. My companion's dish was a vodka based type sauce and had no variety or flavor even tho pasta was cooked correct. Please, if you can't do it well, do not include on menu and charge me 24$. The soup of day was good and we had great cappuccinos - this was the best part of the meal. The chocolate lava cake dessert was warm but had no lava - it had been overcooked. Not same place I remember. Details!

    Party of 4 at 6pm on Mother's Day Dinner. Service was mediocre: waitress really did not know the menu or specials well (although a non-standard menu for that day); waited too long for service in general, took forever for bread to be brought; bread was totally tasteless. Salads were just OK ($8 Christine's or Summer Salad), I've had better at other local spots lately; entrees were good but not stellar. Quantity was plenteful.

    I picked this place for 2 reasons. One, most of the reviews were decent and secondly, because I like to support the independent restaurants. I went the day before mothers day expecting it to be busy and for the service to be loaded down a little due to them being at capacity. This was the case as far as being busy but the waitresses seemed very disinterested in taking care my entire family. We ordered and even as the restaurant emptied the service didn't pick up. It will be the last mothers day I'll be spending with my mom for a while and I was really hoping for better. If I had paid less I may have expected less, I am by no means a complainer as I have never written a bad review but felt compelled to warn everyone before they dine here.

    Haven't been back here for a while as the last time was a little disappointing. The four of us ordered three different entrees. One sample of the duplicate entrée was not as good as the other so there is some inconsistency. The other two entrees were very good. Not sure I will be returning.

    My wife and I have eaten at Christine's several times over the past few years. However we had not visited the restaurant for about a year and decided it would be good to go once again. The experience was very disappointing. The food was not of a quality that we had remembered. I doubt we will ever visit the restaurant ever again.
