My biggest complaint is THEY DID NOT CLEAN/wipe tables between customers!!!!!!!!!!!! We sat outside and I was in shock to see that the busboy only removed dirty dishes…NO ONE CLEANED AND SANITIZED THE TABLES BEFORE SEATING THE NEXT CUSTOMER!!! I actually saw the busboy take a water glass that a customer drank from and poured it over dried, spilled macaroni and cheese…that was how he cleaned the table. The dried up cheese was still there when they sat the next customers. GROSS! How does a food establishment get away with this??? Service was slow…seemed a bit short staffed. Food was good- grilled salmon was delicious but overwhelmed with capers, chicken gyro was good (chicken moist) but tzatziki sauce was a bit bland. Deviled eggs were great. The escargot needed some garlic and other flavor…it tasted like mushrooms. I doubt I would return based on what I saw…makes me wonder what they do in the kitchen where food is prepped.
Had reservations and when we walked in only two other tables were occupied. We sat for 10 minutes never being acknowledged while wait staff continued to set up tables. We finally gave up & as we walked out the hostess said Have a nice evening.
We went on a rainy Tuesday evening to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant was mostly empty which reflected the weather and not the quality of the food or the ambience. Service was great and the food was delicious. The setting is lovely.
The food was seriously lacking flavor.
We were able to get a table on the deck for a breathtaking view of the River and bridge at sunset. (Outdoor tables are not guaranteed). They also were gracious about helping us with a last minute request to change our reservation time. Service was great, our server was friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. I had the special, scallops with mixed greens and a chickpea salad. Loved the Cucumber Gimlet cocktail. Always a great dining experience at Martine’s!
Food was wonderful and patio area was well shaded and comfortable. Excellent drinks and service
We were on our way to our first indoor concert...Melissa Errico at Bucks Cty. playhouse. With thunderstorms brewing we arrived early for our 6 pm reservation and Brian was welcoming, courteous, amiable and helpful. The food and drink were very nice x a relaxed way to spend a thunderstorm, watching the Delaware flow by, watching the changing sky, and sipping. Our entrees were equally good and we almost hated to leave. That said the show was great. All in all, Martines added to what was a memorable eve in all around. I didn’t even mind the hour drive back to NJ! We will return (as we have on many occasions) and we’ll ask for Brian.
There were glitches with the kitchen service, and the manager told us that a problem with the printer in the kitchen was to blame. Unfortunately it took more than an hour for our dinner to arrive, no fault of the server. The calamari appetizer was spectacular, the salmon entree fine but a little over cooked and dry. Seems like Martines is not yet back to it’s pre-pandemic level of excellence but they are trying hard to get there.
Lots of bugs while dining outside and unfortunately, the food was over priced. It appeared the outdoor section needed some spring cleaning!
Food and service was fantastic!! But I was so disappointed about our seating. We picked Martines specifically due to their outdoor dining on the River. The view is spectacular and justifies the higher end cost of meals. They sat us on their somewhat dumpy front patio with no view and no vibe. Having booked over a month in advance for outdoor River side dining I feel we should have been given a River view table. Otherwise we loved the food and the server but felt we missed the awesome ambiance despite paying for an expensive meal.
Great food and service
My husband and I loved Martine’s and plan to visit again soon.
My first impression was that they didn’t have my reservation as there was no table along the river outside when we arrived. However, they tried their best to accommodate us and we had a wonderful meal in spite of the initial mixup. The food and service were excellent. My salmon was perfectly cooked - kudos to the chef, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his burger and pate. Our server who was also the hostess was very pleasant and understanding. We will definitely be back and highly recommend this restaurant others looking for a lovely afternoon lunch in new hope.
The outdoor seating area has a beautiful view which we were looking forward to enjoying. The deck has at least 10-15 propane heaters which is why we chose to sit outside for dinner in May. By 8pm it was very chilly and we hadn’t yet eaten dinner so I asked to turn on the heaters and was told none of them were in use. Several customers complained it was getting chilly so We ate our appetizers which were good and decided to cancel our meal and left. The waitress was a pleasure and very apologetic but the bartender has an attitude and was rude and obnoxious when I questioned the hostess
Great service in a beautiful relaxed water front atmosphere. We enjoyed the Buratta salad and in addition a shrimp dish equally delicious.
Hard to find good restaurants anymore. The service and the food was excellent. We're definitely going back.
Very efficient waitstaff. Friendly. Beautiful location. Good variety of food.
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.
Great food, excellent view and an easy walk to the key New Hope attractions. We'll be back.
Best place for quiet and romantic dinner in New Hope with beautiful view of the river.
Great ambiance on deck area. Food and service excellent!
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!
Loved this place! Excellent food, view, and service!
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.
Good food. Good Service. Good time. 50 words review.
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.
Great restaurant. Only problem is the usual parking problem of New Hope.
Excellent food drink and service
Not over priced.
Staff was accommodating when we wanted to switch from outside seating to inside. Made us feel really comfortable. Food was outstanding and our waitress was attentive. And you can’t beat the view!
Service, Food and Ambiance were excellent. Will be back.
Pretty good lunch. Better than I remember. Service was 5 stars.
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.
Great service! Chairs outside are very uncomfortable but the food was definitely worth it!
Lunch date with my hubby
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.
