    The new Hawke has improved its ambiance for sure The burger didn’t measure up to its former lunch favorite but it was better than ok I will return and try other dishes that looked good It’s a bit pricier but at least we can make reservations and hear each other

    This was our first dinner at The Hawke and it was amazing!! The food, wine and service were all spectacular. Sadly, we were seated next to a table of four very boisterous people who had no regard for others. We finally skipped ordering dessert to be done with them. Hopefully, next time.

    Pretty impressed by the hawke. It was our first time since I think it has been re-fashioned. Nice outdoor seating area, full-service bar, good location a little off the beaten path. Service was very good and the food was good. All in all a fair exchange of value I thought. Enjoyed it and expect to return

    Came in for a birthday! We sat outside and had a great time! The atmosphere was amazing and we tried the special lamb appetizer and it was delicious! Our server nick was friendly and took care of us and made it special with a sparkler at the end for the dessert!

    Came here to celebrate my daughter's birthday with her "hearty eater" boyfriend. We sat in the back room near the outdoor eating area which was a little loud, but not unreasonable. Waitress was very nice and very knowledgeable about the menu. We did not feel rushed -(dinner reservations at 6:45 on a Saturday. We sat down on time and left at 8:50 )Started off with the Ahi Tuna Wontons-(delish), Gorgonzola Bread. (this was more of crostini, was expecting more of a loaf, was very good none the less). Boyfriend ordered the French Onion Soup and Truffle Onion Rings. All very good. Entrees were the Chilean Sea Bass, Cowboy Ribeye with Truffle butter, and the Porterhouse Steak for 2 with side order of Brussel Sprouts and whipped Potatoes. The Chilean Sea Bass was a small portion but did come with roasted potatoes and Brussel Sprouts. Flavor was there, wished it could have been a little hotter. Ribeye was ordered medium rare, and was perfect. Porterhouse was ordered medium rare as well, and I feel could have been cooked a little better. The outside was very dark and seemed to be "burnt". Meat near the bone was raw, but that was ok, as we took home as left overs, and I cut the meat off the bone and had steak and eggs the next morning. Dessert was Caramel Apple bread pudding. This like the Gorgonzola Bread was "flat"-a slice of apple bread with the topping and ice cream. Was expecting the more traditionally "baked and fluffy bread pudding. Daughter was surprised as when they brought her dessert there was a very large sparkler in her dessert and the entire room sang Happy Birthday to her. Would I go back again, ABSOLUTELY- The Hawke has only been re-opened for 6 weeks I think, and I am sure they are still working out the kinks. Next time will try the lunch menu.

    The HawkeResponded 4 days agoLisa, thank you so much for choosing The Hawke for your birthday celebrations! I am glad you enjoyed everything and we look forward to seeing you in the near future!

    No entree. Lousy entry. We walked in for our reservation on time and said we had requested an outdoor table on our Open Table res. We were brusquely told that they do not guarantee outside tables and that it would be a thirty minute wait. No apologies, no warm welcome, etc... Just abrupt and hardly consistent with the manner of the old Inn of The Hawke. It is clear we won't be walking down the block from our home again because of the rude manner with which we were treated. They seem to care more about those who need their valet parking than us Lambertville locals.

    The HawkeResponded 4 days agoHello, I am sorry to hear about your recent experience here. On our opentable home page it does say in the description that we don't guarantee outside tables. I can assure you we do care about each and every one of our guests equally. We are so happy we see local familiar faces on a regular basis and I hope you will give us another chance to show you this is not the type of business we are!

    My husband and I went to The Hawke for our anniversary. The food and service were excellent! We started with the truffled onion rings appetizer, a wedge salad and a Caesar salad. My husband had a NY Strip Steak with Oscar topping, a loaded baked potato and crispy Brussel sprouts. I had Chilean sea bass with roasted potatoes and crispy Brussels sprouts. We finished with carrot cake and chocolate mousse. Every single thing we ate was delicious!! Next time, I’d like to try their sandwiches which looked yummy! It’s nice that you can eat light or have a full meal. I highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    Came here to celebrate a birthday. Thought it was weird that we weren’t given the option of sitting inside and were automatically seated outside. My fiancé and I got steak for two, my sister got sea bass, and her husband had a ribeye. We had a few apps and desserts as well. The food was good, not excellent. The sides for the steaks were very small and we had to order extra because we all wanted to share. We were a little bummed that the extra sides came out toward the end of our meal, since kitchens usually fire add-ons like those pretty quickly, but again, they were tasty. The sparkler in the dessert for the birthday was a nice touch. The service all night was fine, but incredibly slow. We enjoyed our time and not being rushed, but nearly three hours felt like a long time. The most unfortunate part of the experience came at the end of the evening. We wanted to have one more drink at the bar before going home and when we walked inside and saw a number of people with full martinis and other drinks, we thought it would be fine. After being ignored for a few minutes, the bartender came over with a smirk and told us we could not have drinks because her register was closed out (which it wasn't because I watched someone close a check out over her shoulder while she was telling us this). We could have done without this part of the experience for sure. Especially since we watched another couple walk into the bar as we left, and they were served with no issue.

    The HawkeResponded on September 11, 2022Amanda, I apologize for your experience at The Hawke on Friday night. I'm sorry we weren't able to get the extra sides out right away. Unfortunately, we do close at 10pm & last call is around 9:50. The people you saw at the bar had got their drinks before last call. Also, the two people who came into the bar as you were leaving were coming in to pick their son up who works at the restaurant. Again, my apologies for the misunderstanding & I hope you will give us another chance in the future

    The food was out of this world…so yummy. Our server was so nice, it the staff seemed very disorganized, and I never got my after dinner drink. In addition, the wine pour was ridiculously small…so small that you could probably get 5 or 6 glasses from one bottle. It was insulting. Overall, I think that they’ll get the bugs worked out, pour a more reasonable wine pour, and be very successful. Again, the food was outstanding (salmon and lamb chops).

    The HawkeResponded on September 11, 2022Hi Lindsay! Thank you for dining with us, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your dinner! Our wine pours are 6.5oz measured to the bottom of the logo etched on our wine glasses. It can be deceiving because it is a large glass. I am not sure what happen with the after-dinner drink, but I do apologize & realize that should never happen. We look forward to seeing you in the future to make this a 5 star review!

    Three of us had dinner at The Hawke and it was a fantastic experience. We had wedge salads to start which was served with a creamy blue cheese dressing and thick, bite sized pieces of bacon and tomatoes. Delicious! Dinner include salmon, a rib eye and chick pea cakes. My niece’s entree included a special appetizer of lobster risotto! We ended our meal sharing a dessert of bread pudding topped with vanilla ice cream and shipped cream. We ordered espresso as well! The overall, outdoor dining experience at the Hawke was beautiful. I have not been there since it was renovated. The place looks modern, updated and comfortable. We cannot wait to return to try other dishes.

    Linda, our waitress, had worked for the previous owner, and made the evening really memorable with her knowledge of the food and beers. A good person. The parking slot signs DO NOT specify they’re for valet parking ONLY, but should, although the young valet disagreed. He/they should look at it from the viewpoint of the driver, not theirs.

    It’s a great little restaurant. We ordered some steaks shared some brussels sprouts and Loaded baked potato. Steaks were cooked perfectly brussels sprouts for overly cooked baked potatoes very good. We asked about some bread and we’re given two very stale rolls. Overall the place was pretty decent I will certainly go back for a burger. One thing They need to correct there is they want to clear your plate before you’re done eating and I’ve told them twice no we’re not done clearly there’s food on the plates. Plates should only be cleared once the entire table is done eating. I’ve been there twice and it happened both times. That’s annoying. Maybe just an off day and that’s fine we all have them. I would certainly give it a try if you haven’t been.

    Inn of the Hawk was a favorite restaurant of mine, thought I would try the new Hawk. I ordered the steak special, very tender but way too salty for me and a bit pricy at $65.00. All sides are ala carte, I ordered the crispy Brussel sprouts, they were a bit overdone and not many of them for $9.00. The small pieces of ham were smoky and delicious. We also ordered oysters. My husband ordered shrimp and scallop dish that was good. Portions were small, we walked over to New Hope for ice cream.
