My wife and I had dinner here for her birthday. Among the highlights were the scallops: they were happy to this entree into a small mid-course so that we didn't have to make up our minds and pick only two dishes to try! We will definitely come back next time we are in Lambertville.
Exceptional!!! This place is truly amazing. There are very few tables, but it doesn't feel small; it feels intimate, it feels European, and it makes you feel lucky to have scored a table. The menu offered dishes I had heard of but never seen on other menus, and the food was outstanding. Just thinking about it now makes me want to go back. I would recommend this to anyone for any occasion. My new favorite.
This was my wife and I's 4th time there and again the meal and atmosphere as always was fantastic. Chef Dennis Foy is a master at his craft.
Amazing people and amazing food. Dennis and Estella are such a great team. Can't wait to go back!
As always, the food and service are more than anyone can imagine!
Nothing short of brilliant, as usual! Try the Amish Chicken for two . . . on second thought, don't! That will be one less chicken for us.
D'Floret experience is like having a spectacular meal created and served in an excellent chef's home dining room/kitchen. If you are seeking a restaurant to see and be seen-don't go here. However, if you wish to have a creative and tasteful meal served by friendly staff... d'floret is the place. I had the venison (best I've ever been served across the US) and my wife's lamb chops were superb! Absolutely order the Profiteroles for desert - YUM. Chef Foy cooks on his terms and his artistic results are wonderful. The table service is led by his wife Estella who is very engaging and ensures that the operation runs smoothly.
BYOB is a great plus.
Food was excellent in every respect. Creative menu using local fresh "farm to table" approach. Setting and environment was very casual, private very subdued. Dennis and his wife could not be more charming.
DFloret was an unexpected delight! The mushroom soup with truffles was absolutely delish and gnocchi were so light and delicate--perfect consistency and taste. The food was excellent and the restaurant is very nice, service great! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The service was initially attentive but as the meal progressed, the service was increasingly bad. We had to ask twice for more bread. Couldn’t finish 3/4 of a dessert and asked that it be wrapped to take home. Server threw it out instead. When we brought this to the attention of the restaurant, nothing was done or offered to make up for mistake.
My wife and I consider ourselves to be foodies (don’t most people these days?). However, after dining out at numerous restaurants (approx once a week) we have not had a meal in the NYC/Philly area in the last 6 months as good as this (comparable to our trip 6 months ago to Paris). The food was succulent, passionate and personal. This will defiantly be a regular spot for us. A diamond in the rough!
Excellent. Innovative and delicious menu. Loved the goat cheese tart with tomato confit as the appetizer. Steak was likely the best I’ve ever had. Small intimate restaurant with a friendly staff with the just the right level of attentiveness. Very pleased and will definitely visit again.
What an amazing find. Small 9 table restaurant with every attention to detail. The service was impeccable and the food was exquisite. This foodie was impressed. Compliments to the amazing chef!
Perfectly executed classic dishes with an uncompromising focus on using the best ingredients, personally selected by the chef. All wrapped up in a warm, welcoming ambiance.
Fantastic meal - I expected a good experience but Chef Foy went above and beyond and everything was absolutely amazing.. Can't wait to come back on Valentine's Day..
Chef owned, exceptionally prepare and presented dishes. Staff knowledgeable. BYOB so of course the wine is delicious 😉. Small, quaint, cozy, romantic. Lovely spot for a gourmet delight.
Small place that hits it big! Food is excellent and service wonderful. Save room for ama Inv desserts.
I ordered the rack of lamb special and my wife got the scallops. Both were cooked perfectly. And do yourself a favor, get dessert.
Casual, relaxed setting but overall the food was disappointing--very mediocre walnut/greens salad, oddly seasoned rack of lamb, over-dressed and flavorless pasta. Main Impression: over-priced, over-ambitious fare. Would not return.
Our first time in the area and would surely dine there again when we visit
The food here is outstanding, and it's BYOB, so you can bring a nice bottle of wine for the occasion, which is wonderful. One downside was the use of a lobster cream soup as a special appetizer, but also using it as an accompaniment to a special entree. I ordered the soup, which was excellent, and shared some with my wife, who ordered a lobster stew dish off the menu. Thus, when her entree came, she had already sort of had it. That's not to say it wasn't delicious, just a little repetitive. Her appetizer was a gnocchi dish, which was absolute gnocchi perfection. For my entree, I had the dry aged sirloin, and it was exceptionally good, better than most, and that's saying something. As a side note, I couldn't finish it, so we reheated it in a grill pan for breakfast the next morning--it was similarly incredible the next day! So good.
In the end, this was a great meal, and worth it, if not slightly overpriced, in my opinion. The clientele was a little over the top with their stuffiness, so if people who go out of their way to act important rub you the wrong way, this place may not be for you. Of course, that's not the fault of the restaurant. It interesting for us to dine out in New Jersey, now that we've lived in Easton, PA a few years, where we have an abundance of fantastic restaurant options at our fingertips, and the value for the cost is notably higher than in much of NJ. It's fun to go back once in awhile, but I don't exactly miss it.
It was a mist disappointing dinner. I have been there on several other occasions when good service and value were excellent. Last night the food was extremely disappointing and the service was slow. $18 for like warm soup and $37 for a mediocre piece of halibut and ordinary vegetable salsa is unacceptable. I doubt that I will go back
We met friends for dinner and absolutely loved the food and the leisurely pace. Although some of us intended on ordering the rack of lamb and grilled shrimp, they were out of those entrées. Undeterred, we made different selections both from the regular menu and nightly specials, and were not disappointed. The only negative was the extremely small waiting area where guests are crammed into a tight space right in front of the entrance and in the path to the open-faced kitchen.
We love this place! Wonderful food and excellent service in a cozy atmosphere.
Top quality ingredients. Creative preparation. Gracious hosts; like dining at a friends house.
The place is great.. the gnocci is a must.. the rack of lamb was very nice.. the dessert a little disapointing. The service was very very good
Small, local spot with a true pioneer of New Jersey nouvelle cuisine at the stove. Chef Foy continues to provide light, flavorful versions of classics. Take a decent bottle and a drive to Lambertville. Leave your credit card at home - he doesn't take them. Go anyway...
Food was excellent. Prices were reasonable. The food is unquestionably superb.
The service however needs work. Tables who are seated after you should not have their orders taken before yours. Nor should other tables have their food arrive before yours, especially when their order was placed after your order was taken.
The poor service was not a fluke. We saw a table walk out because they were essentially ignored. The waitresses didn't even attempt to stop them as they walked passed.
With restaurants like these you're paying a premium for the service as well as the food. When either one of those is lacking the customer is justifiably dissatisfied.
Delicious food . Always consistent. The owners are so passionate about their food, and it shows in their delivery and the quality. Such a treat!
When in Lambertville,we never miss this lovely restaurant...the staff members are always so warm and welcoming.Chef Dennis makes sure you are nothing less than delighted with your meal.And we always are! Delicious food with attention paid to details in this intimate 9 table restaurant ..
From the moment we arrived, we did not feel welcome. Our server asked us what type of water we wanted and we had to ask a second time for it. Same with bread, we were told bread would be out and when our apps arrived, asked for bread. Water was not refilled automatically, had to ask twice. Food was good but very overpriced. We brought our own decanter for wine, the server attempted to take it away as she was clearing the table. Will not visit this restaurant again.
Food is great, and the host and chef are a great couple. The space is small, so can be tight quarters, but all else is fantastic!
This is an authentic French restaurant that is a neighborhood treasure. While the menu is small, the quality of the selection are perfect. Preparation is meticulous and the presentation is beautiful. The results are genuine delight. This is a very worthwhile dining experience. Bring a great bottle of wine to complement the meal. My girlfriend is nudging me to talk about the layers of cuisine that we experienced at d'Floret, but I think I have said enough. It is great.
Al and TL!
Love this place! We come here several times a year. Very intimate. Food is always excellent.
We live in the area and started going there a couple years ago -- it has quickly become our local favorite. We like it for a small group of firends or just my husband and I -- the outdoor patio is fantastic when the weather is good. The place is intimate, inside and out, and the food is excellent -- freshly prepared and presented. The service is fantastic - personal, attentive, engaging.
Dinner was delicious! Had the truffle tortellini and it was so light and fluffy! Butternut squash soup was so good! Even the bread was delicious!
We haven't been for a while, and really enjoyed our dinner. Lovely byob with good service and pleasant surroundings. Nice outdoor space too. The butternut squash soup was amazing!
The chef is cooking right in the room and he is very personable. Both he and his lovely wife, the waitress and hostess, asked several times how we enjoyed our meals--they seemed to genuinely want to know.
The butternut squash soup was delicious--fresh tasting and very unique in flavor. The Tian of Crab app was all meat, but I personally didn't care for the Thyme combination. The Gateau Langoustine in puff pastry and cream sauce was good, but a little too heavy on mushroom flavor. The sushi grade tuna special with blood orange was one of the best tasting tuna entrees I ever had and the portion was easily for two people! The tuna itself was a beautiful red color. The fresh apple tart was good (not sweet), but the chocolate lava type moist cake and local vanilla ice cream was absolutely fabulous!
We would definitely go back but next time try something different, like the Gnocchi that fellow diners were raving about. WARNING: Don't forget you have to pay the parking meetings until 9:00 pm, or it will cost you at least $35.00 (lesson learned).
Wow, what a delicious meal from beginning to end. The mushroom gnocchi was outstanding, as well as the roasted chicken for two. Wish this restaurant was closer to my home.
