Husband and Wife team, Dennis Foy and Estella Quinones, are committed restaurateurs who counterbalance each other’s exacting artistic standards. Estella’s passion for design and Dennis’s interest in painting clearly reflects this sensibility.

The exciting twenty-eight seat restaurant d’floret is a modern elegantly-lit stage, featuring an open kitchen and adjoining dining room that exhibit the chef’s dual passions: Foy’s paintings and culinary mastery. The space is accented by a floor-to- ceiling Black Walnut Nakashima panel, lighting by Ayala Serfaty, the Israeli artist, with Arnie Jacobsen modern Classic chairs, finishing the sleek warm welcoming room.

Please note, due to high demand and limited seating, in addition to online holds we require diners call the restaurant to reconfirm your by 12pm day of, or it will not be honored.

I have wanted to try d’floret for several years and went there for brunch on Sunday. We sat outside in the beautiful garden. The chef’s wife who was so lovely took our order and encouraged us to get a bottle of wine around the corner (we did!)
The food was as gourmet and delicious as only a celebrated chef can create. Everything was to perfection
I can only say that I can’t wait to return!!

As always, the presentation is spectacular and the food delicious. Small menu equals quality. The service is wonderful and the owners are the warmest people. As a side note, we've never eaten in their backyard/court. We will be there again!

Wow-- what an excellent find! After the tornados passed (!) we were able to keep our reservation at this gem. Electricity was out during most of our meal, yet there was no interruption in food service --like any fine restaurant they cook with gas and not a microwave to be found.
Every dish was expertly prepared -- we enjoyed chilled pea soup, tian of crab, mushroom and langoustine crepes and halibut. No corkage fee for our wine. Very pleasant staff and intimate atmosphere.
I am a school nurse--D' Floret is worth my hard-earned money!
Chef Dennis, Estella and staff WILL impress--make a reservation now.

We drive over and hour and stay at a local hotel just to dine here (and spend the day in Lambertville/New Hope). I have followed Chef Dennis’ career and have always been a fan of his food. On our last visit on a cold September night I mentioned to Estella that I had been to the tarragon tree many years ago. The chef came out of the hot kitchen and sat with us for a moment at our patio table to reminisce.

This visit Estella greeted us with the comment “it’s a lot warmer than last time”. Amazing!!

Bring your own wine and take your time. Enjoy this while it lasts. There are not too many restaurants in the US that offer this experience.

A very special place. Very French. Tiny and intimate, with stellar food and ambience. Because it is a BYOB, you can have a lavish meal for way less than a comparable level restaurant where you’d get a big liquor bill. I cannot wait to return.

We had such a lovely dining experience at d’floret. So intimate, welcoming and delicious. My boyfriend and I went there and had the mussels, wild mushroom lobster crepe, asparagus soup, Rack of Lamb and Filet. All was exceptional especially the mussels and lamb. BYOB a nice bottle of wine. Well done.

We had a somewhat mixed dinner experience. On the positive, the owners were warm and very welcoming. The ambience, we sat outside, was lovely and inviting.

On the not so good, the food was probably the biggest disappointment. My appetizer was wrong. The crab cake I did receive was tasty though on the cold side. One other reviewer seemed to have the same experience and I agree that they may be plating warm food on cold plates. Plus a bit too much mayonnaise. They confused and mixed up the cooking temperatures for my veal and my husbands lamb chops. Other than being way over cooked, my veal lacked seasoning and salt. You could tell that the veal and lamb chops were of very high quality. Unfortunately the lack of seasoning and wrong temperature ruined the flavor and enjoyment. The brownie ala mode tasted store bought. The service also seemed amateurish. Other than the owner, the two actual servers seemed out of their element.

We had an absolutely wonderful & delightful evening amidst an unexpected power outage & wind storm. Our fresh seafood dishes were delicious & we are still talking about the homemade tortellini. I think I could have easily eaten 100.
What a beautiful gem. Thank you for a very special evening.

We love bringing friends to our favorite restaurant because we know it will become their favorite too! The food is creative, and prepared perfectly. Ambience in this tiny place is very special. All the patrons are very friendly and you feel like you are coming home when you see Estella's smiling face greeting you at the door. Dennis Foy is the master chef behind the unforgettable food that you will be raving about to all who will listen. Service is attentive and no request is too much for the perfect team of Dennis and Estella. Get your reservations in early because they fill up fast!

we had a valentines day reservation for two. The place was simple but simple is nice these days were everything is complicated. All foods came at the high time and cooked perfectly. The filet mignon was awesome and a size I have never seen in a restaurant. My wife had the fish and she raved about how well it was cooked. Very good experience overall.

If social distancing is of any concern to you, I would avoid this restaurant. All 7 tables occupied by 16 patrons in a very small dining area. Food was ok. Apple pie tasted like canned apples. Cash only is annoying.

I travel world wide. Especially Europe and I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in the World.

This restaurant is off the hook! The food is fantastic and the very best product that Dennis can find.

I rate the restaurant 5 Stars and have eaten there twice in 2 weeks.
