A great restaurant with an incredible view of the icy Delaware River on a beautiful sunny winter day. Food was excellent, and our server Barb was a delight. Great for locals and visitors, with valet parking adjacent or park on the street and stroll around first.

We choose Martine's for our anniversary and boy did we make the right decision. The food and drinks were excellent, the service was great, and the ambiance was relaxing. If we come back to New Hope in the future, we will definitely go to Martine's again!

Nice restaurant on the river we frequent for lunch. Beautiful in warmer weather when you can dine on the back deck. Great cocktails.

Martines continues to be the quintessential restaurant experience to show off New Hope to out of town guests. The river view is accessable and unparalelled. The food is consistantly good with a varied menu that will suite any palette at reasonable prices. My "go to" dining place.

My friends and shared an order of Brussels sprouts followed by a fish sandwich. It was more than enough food fir the two of us. The waiter was great, very personable. Martine’s has become a favorite of ours when we are in Lambertville/New Hope.

Great service and delicious food. It was a bit noisy due to being crowded and no outdoor seating because it’s December, but overall an enjoyable experience. Our waiter was fantastic! I will definitely return. I’d love to sit outside with the river views in warmer weather.

Karen was our server and she was wonderful. Made our experience lovely. Had a wonderful meal and the atmosphere was perfect. Will definitely return. Good food/drink menu selection with something for everyone. The pork chop, calamari, scallops, and shrimp were all delicious choices.

Enjoyable family event in the historic river town. One criticism…lack of high chair/booster seat for our 18 month old grand-daughter. She did enjoy the French fries though! Certainly will return.

Packed with tables close together, really close together. No masks. Loud.
Food good, servers nice, view great.
Would probably be an awesome experience in nicer weather because there were lots of outdoor seating and it is located in the perfect spot on the river.

No lights on inside, no atmosphere, a sad feeling inside. Food was fine and cocktails weren’t quite correct, ie sangria with no fruit , old fashioned with little gin

We arrived on time for our reservation only to be greeted by a gentleman stating that our table would not be ready for a while because a larger party had stayed longer than they had expected. They asked if we wanted to sit upstairs in the loft, which looked like an attic and had zero ambience or view of the river, which we had requested in our initial reservation. The waiter offered us seating outdoors with heat lamps. Luckily it wasn’t a terribly cold Day so that is where we sat. My sister ordered a cappuccino because she stated to the waiter that she was a little chilly and something warm to drink would be nice. When the check came the cappuccino was $6.50. The manager never came over to apologize to us for putting us out there and no one offered us any provisions… We thought he should have at least comped the cappuccino that she needed because it was chilly outside. For that reason we gave them a poor score for hospitality because they were not hospitable at all towards us. When I worked in the restaurant business, if that had happened to a party we would have offered them at least a free round of drinks or a comped dessert for their inconvenience but this place did neither of those things and for that reason we will not be returning

Perfect location in the heart of New Hope along the river. Welcoming & professional staff offered a very relaxing experience. One of our favorite spot for dining or a few drinks at the bar.

I would recommend to all.

I ordered a pasta dish which was bland and watery (not a garlic cream sauce as described on the menu). After several bites, I found hair buried in the sauce. My husband ordered the pork chop, half of which was completely pink and raw. What he did eat of the pork chop was overly salted.

Despite the horrible food, Our waiter was exceptional , very personable and attentive

One of the places we had dinner to celebrate our 25th Anniversary weekend in New Hope. We were seated with a river view. Staff was excellent, meal was delicious. My wife had a filet mignon, and I had a crusted spearhead trout over a red pepper sauce (it was a special that night). Our first time in New Hope and will be back again without question. And will definitely visit Martine's again, hopefully when it's still light out to enjoy that river view even more.

Thanksgiving 2021 was lovely! From the moment we entered and were greeted by a warm and welcoming bartender (who offered to seat us before the rest of our party had arrived but said he’d rather have us come hang out with him at the bar) to our goodnights with our warm and professional server Chastity, our experience was great.

Food, including a tradional turkey dinner was delicious and well prepared with something for everyone.

We would consider making Thanksgiving at Martine’s a tradition.

Our experience at Martine's was great. Food was very good and portions were large (had several doggie bags). Our waiter did a phenomenal job, attentive but not annoying plus super pleasant. Ambiance was low key and comfortable. Great views of the river.

We asked for a high chair when we made the reservation a week ahead of time. When we arrived they were startled we had a baby, they didnt have a high chair and shoved us in a corner by an outside door which drafted cold air as waitstaff went in and out, as if we should be ashamed. Our baby was quiet and well behaved, if he didn’t behave well in restaurants we wouldn’t bring him. We would have left but all nearby restaurants were already booked. The food was very good - though over priced - and our waiter was excellent. But if they were hostile to children they should have contacted us at the time of reservation so we could find a restaurant we were welcome at and could have enjoyed.
