It was ok, chose this place over others due to the outside seating along the River. The waiter was a bit snobby & not very friendly. Don’t have your standard mimosas so we improvised & made our own w a bottle & a side glass of OJ….the waiter acted like we were asking for HIM to make them.
Food was good, nothing I’d write home about, VERY pricey but you’re in New Hope.

Great placer. Nice ambiance. The deck tables are too close to each other. Crammed customers can't have private conversation.

The entrees were good, I had the Salmon and my wife the Tuna, but the sides were lacking, my corn was old and the cold potato salad tasteless. Wife's rice also lacked taste

Excellent location, very nice view of the river and overview of the bridge. Very nice service, polite and prompt.
Food quality is good, but not a wow taste for the money - kind of pricey.
So for ordinary restaurant I wouldn't go again to overpay for the food. In this case the combination of nice view and "OK" food is worth the money.

We ordered bruschetta and a salad to start which were both very good but the meal (pasta and gyro) were very bland and little seasoning.

It is a relatively plain but ridiculously overpriced place. The cocktails consist mostly of water, the entries mostly of sides (not of meat/fish), the service is pretty sketchy, etc. Disappointed.

Karen was a fantastic server! We had a late reservation and opted for an appetizer, drinks and then dessert. She was really helpful and just attentive enough. Plus the food was fabulous.

service was super nice and knowledgeable - as always. The view cannot be beat. I had the deviled eggs as an appetizer and they were delicious. I had the Steak au Poivre and my daughter had the organic chicken. We both found our proteins to be delicious, the potatoes to be pretty good and the vegetables to be average. We then had the carrot cake for dessert. The cake was dry and the icing was terrible. I guess I always want a cream cheese icing on my carrot cake - this icing tasted like shortening and was pretty inedible. Overall we had a fun time and we'll be back but there is some room for improvement.

Very nice environment and setting. The place has a unique location on the river, really quiet. Being able to be outside is a real plus. Food was great and personnel very friendly. I had the scallops that were very well cooked, with a couple of starters to share. Great wine and cocktails offering. They make non-alcoholic versions of the cocktails on demand.

Martine's River House is a go to place for anyone who enjoys dining by water. It sits right on the Delaware River and patrons can sit outside or inside to enjoy the view. The menu is not extensive, but specials of the day rounded it out. Service by our server, with six years experience at Martine's, was superb. She really helped make the evening. My wife and I shared a pate. She then enjoyed Ahi Tuna while I chose roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and haricots vert. My wife found the tuna to be exceptional and she really enjoyed it. Sadly, my chicken had little taste. Anything done to enhance the flavor in roasting, was washed away by the juice which covered the chicken and the potatoes, so soggy potatoes were the order of the day. Notwithstanding the liquid, they were quite tasty. But for my chicken this would be a five star review. Life happens, of course, so my wife and I will doubtless return to Martine's, assuming my experience was an aberration. Given the difficulty to get a reservation, one can be certain that the restaurant is doing most things right.

The service was excellent. A very helpful, personable and competent woman. Noise level was too high, bordering on unpleasant and inappropriate language. The management failed to respond to quell this large group of rowdy men.

The food appetizers were excellent while the main course (tuna, in my case) was good but perhaps a little overcooked or not as fresh as it should have been.

Rather costly.

Drinks were fine.

We are local, so we will be back, ready to try again.

Friendly staff, waiter was awesome, view incredible. Food was just ok, not really worth the higher price. Portions on the smaller size and my steak was tough, should have been accurately tenderized being a NY strip.

Outside tables need painting. Food was good but more expensive than comparable dining spots. Our server, Sean was excellent. My friend ordered mussels, server apologized for long wait, stating “waiting for them to arrive”.
