Martine's River House
Seasonal Dishes. Classically Inspired. Contemporary Feel.
Amazing service and amazing food. The view was also excellent.
Outstanding experience from beginning to end. The hostess invited us to sit at the quaint bar and enjoy a cocktail, the bartender made excellent drinks, our waiter was fun and well informed, the food was fantastic and creative!
Nice environment very Pleasant and friendly And outgoing servers Erica was awesome food was great
We were so disappointed as last time we were here, the food was excellent. The menu is rather limited and the food not better than fair. The setting is beautiful with views of the river and Lambertville. The wine list needs improvement.
Graham is amazing !!! Really appreciate his personalized service and help with the menu. We will be back!
While there's a variety of quality wines on their list, the wine was served far too early compared with the food, which we ordered prior to another group yet received later, arrived with potatoes possessing the strong taste of their walk-in refrigerator and the stubbornness of having been microwaved more than once. The meat (a plain steak--) was boring and overcooked, barely bleeding, though it was supposed to be rare, and was 1/2 the size of the same menu item as another guest's order. Desserts were, however, enjoyable.
BIGGEST complaint...... NO Parking for this location! SHOULD make customer's aware of that!
Arrived... TOLD no parking.. COULD use valet parking for lot attached to Bucks County Playhouse..
for O N L Y ... $20.00 ! OR park on street.. A JOKE in New Hope... JUST try to find a space! WAS
raining.. NEEDed to use umbrella.. STILL had to walk to restaurant..from parking lot mentioned above!
My wife wasn't happy.. and said. "WE will NOT patronize this restaurant.. AGAIN! SOOOoooooo ......
guess we WON'T go there again!
Seriously one of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long while. Being that my wife and I were treating ourselves to a belated anniversary dinner I had made a couple special requests when I made the reservation online, (a small bouquet of flowers and a couple cocktails waiting for us at the table when we arrived). Within 15 minutes I got a call from one of the managers to go over some of the details. When we arrived the flowers and drinks were there along with a card saying “happy anniversary”. Our server, Graham, took our experience up from there making our night a much needed delightful getaway for a few hours. The drinks, the food, the service and everything else was beyond exceptional. We will most definitely be returning very soon. Thank you Martine’s and Graham for an amazing dining experience.
We ordered the chicken and pasta dishes. We found both somewhat lacking in flavor. To be fair, the service wS outstanding and people really come here for the view, which is lovely.
Anniversary! 5 years. First meal of our honeymoon was at Martine’s!
Perfect setting for any time of the year - Just a great place....
Very nice atmosphere. Wait staff was prompt. The pasta was watery, the portions were small and the price for two (water only for beverages) came to almost $83.00. Disappointing.
Lovely dinning room, great service. Limited entrees but there was something for everyone. Will be back.
Lovely atmosphere seated by the window with river views! Bronzino and carrot & beet salad w/lentil were both excellent! Our waiter was wonderful and the bartender made my husband the perfect martini!
Sorry , But there was no Ambiance as there were almost No People in the restaurant, Granted it was a Monday but we ate out the next night at another restaurant in the area and it was packed. Im also not sure how freshly the food was prepared as the meals that my wife and I had were just warm and seemed reheated as opposed to freshly made right out of the oven . Will most definitely not be back when we do return to New Hope/ Lambertville as there are so many better options available
Great service and terrific small plates to share. Wine list also great.
Menu has become more limited, and not as appetizing. Also very salty.
Great food! But the best part of the night was the server. He was so awesome and very attentive! He had an amazing understanding of the menu, including cocktails, and was simply a delight! Don't lose that one!
Our waitress, Natalie, was very attentive.
The menu is limited to 7 appetizers and 5 to 7 entrees depending on the night. This can be quite appealing as some restaurants with 20 or more selections can be confusing. Also, I prefer the smaller menu if the chef specializes in particular cuisines. My meal started with grilled octopus in a ginger aioli sauce. Very good. My entrée was pasta in poutanesca sauce. All was prepared and served properly.
The prices are a little pricey but this is New Hope, PA. The prices are in the range of most restaurants in the borough. Martine's has a patio which sits right on the Delaware River. Very busy in warm weather.
This restaurant is definitely worth trying.
Excellent setting, food is OK, service is very good. We were there for lunch. Salmon - tasty, well prepared. Stake - very well done. Salad - just OK. I would suggest sitting on the outside terrace to enjoy the view and nice weather.
The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. We were seated by the window overlooking the river. Very romantic. The menu is small but with plenty of wonderful options. I had the scallops which were perfectly cooked, tender and sweet and flavorful. They were in a delightful curry sauce with fresh vegetables. Loved every bite. My husband had the prime rib special which he said was excellent! Drinks were creative and substantial. Try the ginger drink! Didn’t have dessert but saw some of them. They looked amazing. It was our first visit but will definitely be back. Great date night with the hubby.
Awesome food. Great service. We will go again and again!
Very disappointing on so many levels. Perhaps lunch is not the best time to assess the quality of a restaurant but the food was very mediocre and the place was empty.... service was fine.
The food was good, the ambiance on the river is always great, but the noise level was extremely loud. I could not hear my dinner partner across the table. There was a birthday party that took up the entire restaurant except for a few tables. They should have closed the restaurant for the party.
Disappointed when I go to Martines. It could be noisy and hectic outside but you step inside and it’s quiet relaxing with a beautiful Riverview.
The food is fabulous and Martin is a doll!
Tony the bartender was great and the food was awesome. Great atmosphere. Will definitely be back!
Four of us visited here for an early lunch on a sunny Sunday. The restaurant is situated in the center of the village of New Hope smack dab on the shore of the Delaware River in a modest vintage stone building. The interior is a tavern with a bar and several tables in a warm, dimly lit atmosphere. As we requested we were seated on the deck with a magnificent view of the river and bridge to New Jersey. Our server was pleasant and helpful if not particularly attentive. Dishes were not cleared from our table throughout our stay. Each of us readily found something appealing on the menu. The Miso steamed mussels were plump and succulent and the Little Gem Caesar perfect for lunch. The burgers were cooked to perfection and very flavorful. The ingredients of all of our choices appeared fresh and nicely prepared. We found Martine's to be a delightful place to while away a weekend afternoon.
The view was fantastic! We sat outside on the porch overlooking the Delaware River and the bridge to Lambertville. This appears to be one of the few restaurants in New Hope with outside tables along the river, a tremendous plus.
Service on a Saturday evening was slow and uneven. After a great start, the quality of service declined. We had to ask the server about coffee and dessert when he brought the check.
Always an enjoyable lunch on the outside deck overlooking the water and the bridge.
Nice outdoor patio but mediocre food. Good service.
If you like to go to dinner with a date and watch him use his laptop, take calls, and emails it’s a great place.
Enjoyed sitting outside on deck overlooking the Delaware. Server was very friendly, food was delicious, and prices were reasonable. Will definitely go back, either again on deck if weather permits, or inside.
Martine’s has a beautiful riverfront deck when the weather permits. Otherwise the interior restaurant is equally charming. The food is consistently good as well as the service.
It was nice to seat outside. The food is decent but not exciting and I wish there was a brunch menu on the week end. The service was professional but very slow. Lackluster in my opinion.
Good food and great view. Service was slow but sitting outdoors was good since the view is so nice.
Worse meal I’ve had ever, and I dine out a lot. Not sure how this place gets an average rating of 4.2. Never had a problem with open table ratings, but this place is not rated accurately. My chicken meal was was the worse constructed meal I’ve ever had. Supposed to be a half roasted chicken. No way it was roasted. I had a few bites only and ate no more. My fiancé ate more of her pork Milanese, but she had stomach issues all night. Seems like a job for a Gordon Ramsey TV show save. Place should be shut down.
Great ambiance! Good good! Fantastic service!
Martine was very rude at the hostess station. It soured the the experience for me. Once she realized I was with someone she knew, she stared being nice. Won’t return
