Food was delicious! We started with appetizers of shishito peppers and fried cauliflower. Peppers were sweet with a bit of heat to them and the sauce accompanying them was perfectly paired. The cauliflower was fried perfectly and the aioli kicked up the dish to another level. For the entrees we asked if they would split the dishes and they were so accommodating, as an aside the plating was beautiful! We ordered the special of sea bass and salmon and both dishes were delicious and cooked perfectly with just the right amount seasoning. We topped it off with the cheesecake which creamy smooth with berry compote on the side. Our drinks had a good pour and were tasty as well! The sweet potato pierogies were fluffy and browned to the right amount of crispness. Overall this was a wonderful dinner!

Friendly service and great food. My wife and I enjoy having a number of small plates and appetizers in lieu of entrees and really enjoy the variety. We like sitting on the back back even in the winter with the tent and heaters. Our favorite stop in New Hope.

Outdoors, in a tent with heaters. The best they can do on a cold, windy PA day during pandemic lockdown. The service was as expected and sandwiches good.

With their same outstanding service and great food, Martine's has made the very best of a bad situation. By creatively optimizing their narrow deck area with strategically-placed heaters, they provide the perfect indoor/outdoor dining experience in these stressful times. Martine's is always a treat. This year, more than ever.

We enjoyed a really nice meal sitting outside along the river on Thanksgiving Day. When the sun went down they turned on heaters to keep us warm. We shared the crab cake, a salad and a pasta dish and it was brought out to us already separated which was very nice. Our waiter, Sean, was very helpful recommending dishes. Overall a great night and I’ll definitely go back.

Service and atmosphere were the standouts from this visit. The meats were a bit overdone and flavors a bit mild. Would expect a bit better at these prices.

I am a french fry fanatic and theirs were really great! We placed a second order as soon as the first arrived. My daughter also really liked the Mac n cheese. Beautiful setting on the deck along the river. Casual friendly service. We enjoyed the cucumber gimlet and skyline cocktails.

Food was excellent, atmosphere was relaxing especially with the live acoustic guitar player. The service was mediocre. Finished our meal and wanted a couple drinks to end the night. However, I ended up having to going inside to request a check after not seeing our waiter for 20 minutes.

Had a scrumptious lunch. Definitely best food in town. The deviled eggs are a must! the truffle oil makes them a hit! oh my word, the butternut squash soup... just like grandmas! We also had the crab cake sandwich, which was very meaty and tasty. This is a "must try" spot <3

We are outside which got a little chilly when there was wind. They did have sufficient heaters which was great. The food was really yummy, although I think my steak should have included some sort of vegetable for the cost of the entree.

Nice location right on the Delaware. Not too crowded. Staff was great. Friendly and very attentive. Food was very solid. Pace was a little slow, but thats not something that bothers us. Good overall experience.

Anniversary. When we stopped by, they did not have reservation. My husband did say the wrong time but they were so rude and could t find our name. I went back and clarified. The manager was extremely rude to me. She informed me that she already told my husband there is no reservations We traveled from Nashville for this weekend. And had invited out of state friends to join us. Someone else do ally found the reservation. If it were not so crowded in town, I would have cancelled right then. When we returned at 5 minutes before 5, the rude manager said that she was finishing her dinner and we would have to wait outside until
She was finished. She did t want to be disturbed. I will never go back! The food was expensive and horrible. Salmon had no taste! Snow peas were I recooked and soggy. No flavor at all! Service was ok. No thanks. Save your money. The river view is not worth it.

Made a reservation a week in advanced, we were running late parking so we called ahead and they told me it was no issue at all. When we arrived 10 minutes later a man walked up and asked why we were there. When we said we had a reservation he rolled his eyes and walked away from us. Left standing at the front door confused, another woman approached us to inform us that we were too late to sit as the restaurant closed at 4 pm. When I told her I called to confirm she said that wasn’t her and that doesn’t matter and she would not serve us, she stared at us in silence until we walked scratching our heads. Fortunately we found an amazing, friendly place next door and when we walked by at 6 pm this restaurant was still open and full service. Thanks for saving us the trouble but you may want to treat your future customers with more respect!

The prettiest setting on the banks of the Delaware River. We had lunch outdoors on a lovely fall afternoon. The food was delish, I had the crabcake sandwich... Lots af crab on a yummy brioche roll. Service was attentive and pleasant. The tequila and berry specialty cocktail, with the cute name I can't recall, was delicious and refreshing. The natural thin-cut fries are a treat with a mayo-based dipping sauce. A nice spot. Go!

Disappointed at the services. Had to ask for water refills several times - they were not attentive. Expensive for basic food. Only nice things is that it is on the river.

Ok we had a 6:00pm res on a Saturday evening. We approached hostess stand outside and another couple was being helped. After helping them, we did not see her for another 10 minutes as she went inside. She comes back, takes our name at this point and she tells us will have a table shortly as they were just disinfecting the table and suggest we sit down and wait. Shortly after she took our information another couple came who also had a 6 o’clock reservation had to wait about 10 minutes before the hostess came out to take their information. At 6:40 the hostess comes out and says there’s a table ready but since both of us had a 6 o’clock reservation who wants the table first. Say what? It’s clearly up to the hostess to determine who is there first and who gets seated. The other couple graciously said we were first so we can be seated. As we sat down drinks and appetizers came out relatively quick and was very good. After 20 minutes we see the other couple coming in and sat next to us. We waited almost 40 minutes for a 6 o’clock reservation and they waited almost an hour. Need to work a little bit on that service. Otherwise food was excellent nice atmosphere and we had a great time.
