I am always intensely anxious when having to choose a restaurant for out-of-towners, but this was a definite win. So, so good in every way.

Valentine’s Day dinner. Marvelous French restaurant motif and menu. Menu, food and service were outstanding. A charming venue that seems like it was dropped in from a village in France.

Cozy ambience and delicious food. Chef always accommodating to vegetarians, too, with one of a kind dishes. Great date night spot and intimate atmosphere. Best restaurant in Lambertville.

My husband and I went to Manon for our anniversary, on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was not crowded. Our water was fabulous , very low key - perfect for a romantic dinner. We had a wonderful time.

Nicely prepared authentic French dishes were well executed, very tasty, and well served. The service was friendly and good. The single server did very well covering 22 people and always got it right, with an occasional understandable and reasonable lag (small place, one server and one chef). We look forward to going back on our next visit to the area.

I was spoiled, once again, at this great restaurant. I haven't been here since they came back from their vacation in June. I am always fearful that after so many years here, that chef Jean Michel may think of hanging up his apron.

Manon is a tiny boîte in the heart of Lambertville, perhaps the most adorable restaurant in town. Stepping inside is like stepping onto a Jacques Tati film set - more rustic and dated (intentionally) than the recent brasserie chic. Seating is close, but space is adequate enough. The food is seriously old-school (and delicious), and the service and pacing of the meal is laconic. The kind of diner who will have a marvelous time at Manon (as we did) will not be in a rush, will nestle in with a few of their own best bottles (it's BYO), enjoy a long conversation with their companion(s), and will treasure the rusticity and homey nature of the restaurant as brilliant and hard-to-find features. This is definitely an analog restaurant, a place savvy diners will treasure!

We were up from Florida and came back to our favorite restaurant. A great Bistro BYO that we cannot replicate in Florida. Both the pistou and mushroom soups were very well prepared. My wife and I measure their duck presentation against all others. The striped bass was extremely good.

Happy anniversary dinner with my beautiful wife. The warm goat cheese salad was divine. I’m still dreaming about the Bouillabaisse, so yummy. However, the only downside of the whole experience was that we had to wait to the end of our meal to experience the scrumptious home made desserts.

Can’t wait until our next experience at Manon

If you squint just a little, have a glass or two of the wine you brought, you can think you are in a little bistro on a side street in Paris! Very sweet decor, lovely server, not at all pretentious and delicious food!
I noticed that my husband was the only male in the restaurant.....I agree that it is the perfect choice for a girls night out and also perfect choice for celebrating a special occasion. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. He and I were both pleased, I think you will be too!

This has become my new favorite restaurant. Tiny place with one server, but you never feel neglected. The food is absolutely amazing. You can get a fixed price meal during the week, but not on the weekends. Had an amazing filet, cooked to perfection with blue cheese this past weekend. The potatoes au gratin were so good I wanted to grab my husband's off his plate before he could find out how good they were. Mushroom soup is a favorite too. You won't be disappointed if you eat at Manon's - but bring lots of quarters to feed the parking meters on the street.

Great byob French restaurant in Lambertville NJ. Very quaintly decorated - you feel as if you are sitting at a restaurant in France. Very friendly staff, service good, and food is delicious.
