Sat outside on porch by the river. Heaters weren't on which was ok for the weather. Went for lunch, nice seeing lights hung would probably make for a nice evening ambiance. Deviled eggs and crabcake sandwich were good. Side salad dressing was just ok, would have preferred a vinegarette. Didn't order dessert but they looked delicious.

The weather was spectacular so we were able to sit outside on the river. Everything was fantastic but it was very loud. But everyone was having a great time.

The meal was excellent, cooked exactly as we requested. The ducks on the lake were a nice addition. Sat on the deck and it was a little chilly and the heater kept going out but is was a windy day. The waiter was extremely nice and friendly. They did not communicate with Open Table we kept our reservation, that was a minor inconvenience. The Peanut Butter Pie was as good as any I've had.

First time out since COVID-19. Wonderful dinner—salmon was very nicely prepared and tasty. My wife had the chicken which was perfect. Beautiful setting to celebrate our vaccination and return to a new normal! Highly recommend!

Not all restaurants in and around New Hope, PA are this consistently good. The view of the Delaware River from the back deck is unbeatable (and heated for when a cool breeze kicks up), and the front patio provides great people watching. Portions are generous; service is friendly. A seasonal salad with arugula, blue cheese, candied walnuts and crisp apple matchsticks was delicious and more than enough for two. A starter of escargot and mushrooms was unique and tasty, and my companion's Duck Cassoulet was a big hit.

The food was fabulous and we totally enoyed our first ever dinner at Martines. The owner's son went above and beyond when he drove us home after we could not get a taxi or uber driver to take us home. Many thanks for your help and great service. We will back soon.

Delicious food and fabulous service! The cauliflower from the small bites are a must! And the crabcake sandwhich is so tasty, you just wanted to eat it non-stop! The drinks are very creatively made and tasty. Sean was our server and he was so wonderful and made the experience a memorable one. I highly recommended checking out this restaurant next time you are in New Hope...bonus-great views!

I ordered the sea bass and was ecstatic at how delicious it was. The best I can remember of any fish dinner in a restaurant in the last year or more. A truly exceptional meal and one I hope to "revisit" on my next visit to New Hope.

We planned a trip to New Hope for the day and wanted to try a new restaurant. I found this restaurant on open table and decided to give it a go since it looked great. Myself, my husband and my teenage daughters were sat outside on a beautiful deck. We had front row seats to the waters and bridge. We all ordered water, my husband got a martini. We had some $5 small plates (deviled eggs, hummus and bruschetta) we enjoyed the eggs the most - super flavorful and delicious. For our main course, we have the goddess sandwich, beet salad with chicken, Caesar salad with chicken and the fish sandwich of the day which was fried flounder. Everything was superb. My husband went to order another drink and asked for a recommendation and the bartender ended up coming out and spoke highly of this one drink. My husband was hooked. For the gentleman to stop what he was doing to make sure my husband had a good drink was amazing! Our waitress spoke highly the restaurant and some local places and encouraged us to try some good spots. We had a great time, everything was delicious and we can’t wait to come back and dine again!

Haven’t been there since they moved to their new location. Same great food and service as we remember. Now an even better ambiance overlooking the Delaware River. Overall, a wonderful experience. Will be back soon in warmer weather to enjoy dining on the deck overlooking the river.

Our waitress was so sweet! I don’t remember her name but she had short blonde hair. We had the mussells and beef & veggie soup for appetizer (which were phenomenal) and for entree’s we have the honey salmon and NY strip. Everything was so delicious and flavorful!! This is a definite stop on your trip to new hope!

I think they were short staffed this day. I don't believe the service was purposefully not up to par, but it might have been they were short staffed. The food was okay--but nothing close to what it cost. We are used to dining in Philly, so just expected more.
