My friends and I had an excellent dinner Saturday evening at Anton's. We were unfamiliar with the place and made a chance reservation for dinner as we attending an afternoon event nearby. The menu choice isn't big but *everything* we had from cocktails to dessert...was very, very good, as was the service. The atmosphere was relaxed and cozy with some calm, non-obtrusive music in the background. The various dining rooms and bar areas, over two floors, are eclectic and full of interesting antiques and other items. I would say this is an "adult" restaurant good for romantic meals or an evening with friends and less appropriate for family events and children. I hope to go back next time I am in the area.More

Had dinner in the main dining room at Anton's. It was a cozy room with a lot of historic charm and a bit of a speakeasy vibe. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. They have a decent selection of cocktails, wine and beer. The...menu was a little interesting to navigate. The salad and white pizza appetizers were both good. The mains were good but not outstanding. The pork chop we had was tasty but a bit well done. The dessert was a nice treat and the black pepper ice cream was very unique and delicious. Definitely want to give it another visit. Also hope next time to have tome to visit the attached bar as it also looked very cool.More

My husband and I went to the Swan (the bar attached to Anton's) for a nightcap during a recent trip to the area. A local had recommended we go and we are so thankful for the recommendation. What a unique place. The atmosphere and decor...were fantastic, as was their drink menu. It was late in the evening so there weren't many people there. We enjoyed our drinks on the leather sofa in the lower lounge area. It was a perfect end to our night. A hidden gem for sure!More

What an awesome experience. Service is very good. Drinks and food were superb. Must try the devil eggs and the white pizza with mashed potatoes and onions.

We had dinner with another couple last Wednesday. We went to Anton's at the Swan. It's known for being a combination of a popular neighborhood bar (the Swan) connected to an upscale restaurant. (Anton's) They do a fine job on pandemic protocols. The 17 table...dining room is now a 6 table room. Paper menus. Very well done. The dining room has a Victorian feel, since it's in a historic type building. The artwork in the dining room is paintings done by celebrated local artists. We started with cocktails. They looked large. So far, so good. Three of us started with the carrot ginger soup. ($ 9.00) It was good. One person in our group thought the soup was hot, as in spicy. The fourth person had the chicken liver pate, which was deemed quite good. The restaurant makes its own bread, which was excellent. I had the swordfish on pasta puttanesca. Three good sized pieces of fish on an excellent puttanesca. It was about $ 30.00. My wife had the crab cake appetizer ($ 15.00). It appeared to be more filler than crab. We ordered a couple of the same dessert. I think it was a chocolate lava cake with Szechuan peppercorn flavored ice cream. (About $ 10.00). We've never seen that before! The cake was ok and the ice cream was pretty mild. We had a nice French Sauvignon Blanc ($32.00) with dinner. It was good. Are there negatives? The menu was more similar to bar food, featuring s selection of pizzas and burgers. They did have those pretty good appetizers and entrees. The menu might have been simplified because of the pandemic. Service was good. I would return.More

I was taken to this restaurant for my birthday. The atmosphere is amazing. The wait staff were friendly. The food was not bad, a bit overpriced for what you get. It’s a very limited menu, and a bit of an odd menu. I ordered the...swordfish which was on a bed of creamed spinach and while it tasted ok, there was just something missing. The complimentary dessert for my birthday was a nice surprise.More

We just moved into Lambertville and discovered Anton's ...and so glad we did. While we ordered "to go", we will definitely be returning to enjoy this charming restaurant tucked along a quite side street. Staff was engaged, caring and professional...simply wonderful! (plus parking right beside...the restaurant is a joy)More

An amazing atmosphere created by putting a restaurant into a colonial-era house and furnishing it with period antiques and wall hangings. Although the atmosphere is really entrancing and very romantic, the noise level was so high in the upstairs dining room that it was very...difficult to talk above the loud din coming from other tables. Service was a bit uneven, with one waitress being super accommodating and the other being more on the gruff side. The food was very nicely presented, as one would expect. We ordered the buffalo (bison) steak, the most expensive dish on the menu, expecting it to be very lean, as this meat typically is, and "awesome" as the waitress described. Unfortunately, the cut we received was unusually fatty, making it hard to cut (even with steak knives) and hard to chew. When ordering dessert, the options are described orally without price information (there is no dessert menu). The bill comes with totals for food and separately for drink, but no itemization, so it's impossible to check if the bill matches the order. Last, the bill arrived unrequested, which--to me--is always a bad sign in what should be a fine restaurant.More

This past Saturday night, my husband and I were set to see a tribute band at a local place. Every restaurant in the immediate area, including the show venue, had no open seating for dinner. I happened upon Anton's at the Swan and am very...happy I did! It is not large restaurant, but cozy and intimate. My hubs and I were pleasantly surprised to see candlelight at every table; in fact, we were extra happy as it was a cold and miserable evening. We were shown to our table by Rachel, who could not have been any sweeter! After drinks, I began with the Mixed Greens with Apple Cider Vinaigrette. When it arrived, to be honest, I was a little thrown as it was simply...greens. Nothing else - no tomatoes, no carrots, nothing....and you know what? None of that was needed. The greens and vinaigrette were perfect and I so enjoyed it. For our entrees, hubs had the Grilled New Zealand Venison with Garlic Potato Gratin. He could not stop raving and begged me to try it; however, venison is not my thing and so I declined. I had the Filet of Beef with Fingerling Potatoes and Gorgonzola. One word: Perfection. Cooked beautifully, it was the best meal I've had in a long time! It was then time for dessert and hubs went for the Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce, while I tried the Butterscotch Pot de Creme with Pecan Biscotti.....HEAVEN!! Two days later, we are still raving about Anton's! We will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in May and you can be sure that we will be at Anton's!More
