The bar is a God awful place. The bartenders are mean and ignorant. They have a no standing policy. All must be seated like at a parochial school. The atmosphere is forced civility. Nothing joyful or cheerful going on...a good place to be in mourning.

Pleasantly surprised...excellent drinks, food and service. Atmosphere is unique (in a historic way) and cozy. Definitely coming back. We shared the Cesar salad - totally sharable - and excellent. When had the pork chop and duck. Both were very good - the pork chop was...incredibly thick - and cooked perfect.More

My husband and I met friends for a Sunday night dinner at Anton's and had a splendid time. The setting is very charming and the music is kept on low volume, which was a welcome change from most restaurants. The menu focuses on basic items...for entrees -- beef, pork, chicken, two types of fish, and a pasta for vegetarians -- and the wine list is the right length. Our server was very pleasant and professional. When we ordered appetizers, she pointed out that they are large enough to share, which we did: chicken liver pate and a hummus plate. When we ordered Gruner Veltliner (a favorite Austrian wine) by the glass, our server suggested that we order a bottle because it would be less expensive. When one friend and I ordered fish, we asked the server if it was fresh. She assured us that it was, and she was correct. Although we didn't order dessert, the server brought a plate of mini chocolate chip cookies with the check. Giving a generous tip, the price of $140 per couple for a truly excellent meal was a bargain. I won't let much time go by before returning to Anton's.More

It’s a rainy day….perfect weather for a cozy and friendly bar experience. Not today! The bartender at this establishment had us out the door with one glass of wine (far from our usual pour). A Bartender can make or break a first impression. Yes, this...business has been around for a long time. Yes, I understand that this employee has also been around for a long time…..but, every customer counts and even the smallest effort can make a difference. Not even the smallest effort was made to be either friendly or accommodating. O well, on to The Boat House….lovely, friendly service. Looks like we will stay awhile on this cozy rainy day.More

Let’s start off with the good points of our visit. The service was top notch. The hostesses, the servers and bartenders were all very nice and attentive. The food was delicious as well. The things we feel gave them the lower score was the menu....We hadn’t been in a while yet we felt there was little to no change in the menu and there were no specials. We also noticed ( and we are nit picking here) that since Covid they no longer have the white table clothes. It was a nice touch we miss. Also instead of white tapered candles in the hurricane lamps they have tea candles. We will go back. We just hope they make some changes.More

We have been to Antons at The Swan many, many times and have never had a bad experience. We went with friends this past weekend and were disappointed with half of our food choices and the service. The potato pizza appetizer that we looked forward...to was dry and overcooked. There was only one choice for salad and no flexibility with changing the dressing, so if you don't like apple cider vinegarette, you were out of luck. My husband ordered the pork chop which was overcooked. When the dessert came out I commented on the small portion and the piece missing from the bottom of the slice of cake, the waitress replied "I ate it." Service was slow and we had to ask to have our water refilled, at one point my husband got up and refilled our water glasses. On a good note, two of us ordered the rare tuna and it was delicious. And, as always, the cocktails are second to none. I would give our experience a 3.5 rating but there is no option for half of a point.More

10 of us reserved the beautiful smaller dining room upstairs on the 2nd floor. We had a most lovely evening this past Saturday night. Each item selected by the chef was delicious, nicely complimented the other courses, and was perfectly timed. The dishes, the friendly...service, and the beautiful room where we dined added up to a beautiful night. Thank Anton’s for a special evening!More

We love Lambertville…. Now we love Anton’s at Swan. We sat in the friendly bar area. It was a busy Saturday. I ordered a specialty Martini that was a scrumptious. We shared butternut squash soup and a delicious salad. Hubby had a very good rate...runs and fresh vegetables dinner. I chose a delicious squash and goat cheese flatbread pizza… yummy. Obvious The Swan is the place to go!More

We have been enjoying the food at The Swan for over 10 years, but it seems like things have changed post Covid. “No crab cakes because it’s too expensive” which is what our server told us and the Griggs town chicken was all bones and...no chicken. I guess that the breast of chicken they normally sell is too expensive as well. The salad was oily and not tasty which was not normally the case. We feared getting dessert as after a poor salad and disgusting entree, we were concerned what corners they would be cutting with dessert. I’m sorry to say that the swan is not living up to their past reputation. I would gladly pay more more for the meals they served before. We may not return at all following this meal. Please do not get the chicken if you go, but maybe think twice about going at all.More

Terrible terrible terrible. We’ve eaten here a couple times a few years ago (inside) and it was amazing! Best steak we’ve ever had. We ate outside today, which has a different menu. Very small menu, but whatever. We each ordered a burger with lettuce/tomato/onion. They...don’t have tomatoes or fries…again, weird but whatever. Waitress was extremely odd. We asked what the Hanger steak was, she replies “it’s the cut of meat, it’s very tender”. We asked “oh like a filet?”. She replies “ha not that tender”. Just odd. The burger was absolutely inedible. It was so burnt my nose burned when eating it. I tried to just eat the middle. We went down the street and got dinner somewhere else. Also not sure if they have high chairs or not? We had our baby on our lap and no one offered or asked. We didn’t ask for one as we just assumed they didn’t have any as that’s the first time no one has asked us.More

Never a bad meal here. Must try the mushroom risotto, Artic Char, and the mashed potatoes and red onion pizza. Their espresso martini is the bomb. Service superb.

I lived in Lambertville for 11 years and never had much of an opinion of The Swan. A good friend of mine decided to take me there for my birthday dinner; we sat in the formal diningroom. The filthy, dreary diningroom! The servive was so...slow it felt like they had an emergency somewhere else in the building as to not have remembered we were even there. The food was disappointing at best and the bill was expensive! Other friends have coerced me to join them at the bar and for dinner there over the years but I really never leave feeling satisfied or that I experienced a good time. Actually, I find the staff indifferent and almost rude. Asking them to prepare my steak to a tempreture I like is always treading on water; ITS LIKE, TAKE IT THE WAY ITS SERVERD OR DONT ORDER IT! Its a tedious atmosphere at best. And the menu is limited, not to mention tasteless. Blick! 👎More

We were staying in New Hope and had a delicious dinner in this romantic restaurant. The dining room is charming and the staff is very attentive. Food was delicious. We started with the Stilton cheese with apples and bread. I had a wonderful chicken dish...with a mushroom cream sauce. My husband had the pork chop which he liked very much. The apple dessert was okay but not delicious. We were so happy we chose this great spot to celebrate!More
