“An Exceptional BYO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

D'FLoret's menu isn't large, yet four of us (including one pescetarian) still had trouble making our choices, because everything sounded enticing. Three of us started off with the wild mushroom soup, a simple yet delectable concoction. (The fourth had the gnocchi, which was also delicious.) Our entrees were varied, but all were exquisite. I had salmon, which was perfectly prepared. My husband ordered the steak, which was not only wonderful, but the portion was huge. We shared two desserts, one being a chocolate confection and the other was an ice cream-topped apple tart, and they provided a tasty finale for our memorable meal. The service was attentive without being intrusive, and chef Dennis Foy even chatted with us for a bit. My only quibble is I wish it weren't more than an hour away!

“Poor service and atmosphere, uneven food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

While some of the food was good, the service and atmosphere made for a disappointing night. The hostess and servers seemed like they were play-acting roles that they didn't really understand. They seemed awkward and ill-at ease.

The night started off with dirty water glasses (food on the inside and lots of spots). Then, we were brought the first course ordered by a nearby table. Once our main courses arrived, we asked for more bread. It didn't arrive until after we were finished. The bill included San Pellegrino, which we didn't have. When we brought this to the attention of the server, rather than just fixing it, he doubted us and only reluctantly corrected the bill.

The gnocchi were indeed superb but that was pretty much the highlight of the meal. My salmon was OK at best, and served on a moderately flavorful tomato confit. But that was it. I was glad I'd ordered the gnocchi for my first course. My partner had an excellent crab cake, followed by veal bolognese. We wouldn't bother going back.

“What a treat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

We went to D'Floret for a belated Valentine's dinner.
The pasta, be it the fettuccine or the gnocchi , outstanding.
The seafood spectacular.
The service was attentive and friendly.

We had a late dinner, so we closed the restaurant, and that included a lively chat with the chef.

Great food, great experience, cozy atmosphere.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Had dinner Saturday night at D'Floret and loved it. Great food, loved the tian (what's a tian?) of crab. And the lobster fettucine special was fantastic. My fiance had the snapper and it was also wonderful. Can't wait to try some more of Dennis's dishes. For dessert we had the donuts and the chocolate royalle. Definitely get the donuts. Too bad they were out of the apple tart.

Note: the tables are a little close together, and of course you have to feed the meters till 9 PM in Lambertville.

“Wonderful meal! We'll be back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Four of us had an absolutely fabulous dining experience last night. Dennis Foy is a seasoned, highly accomplished chef and that's reflected in the quality of food.

Appetizers included the tian of crab ( essentially an almost all meat crab cake) crispy on the outside, creamy and buttery and lucious. The goat cheese tart was perfectly balanced, a layer of seasoned goat cheese on top of a super fresh tomato. For entrees, the seared red snapper on top of tapenade was very well cooked and quite good. The fettucini with lobster in a vanilla tinted alfredo sauce was decadently yummy. Four scallops perfectly seared in a balsamic glaze was great. Lastly, a huge NY strip was well seared, served with terrific fries.

We shared three desserts, yummy fresh donuts with 3 dipping sauces, a chocolate royale cake and a classic vanilla creme brulee.

The staff was very accomodating and we enjoyed their service. The setting is rather stark in a cleaned up modern way and the restaurant looks like it seats only about 25. There are two seatings on weekends, 6 and 8:15 PM. It seems to work quite well.

We really enjoyed everything, especially the delicious food!! We would recommend to anyone and look forward to going back quite soon.
