Husband and Wife team, Dennis Foy and Estella Quinones, are committed restaurateurs who counterbalance each other’s exacting artistic standards. Estella’s passion for design and Dennis’s interest in painting clearly reflects this sensibility.

The exciting twenty-eight seat restaurant d’floret is a modern elegantly-lit stage, featuring an open kitchen and adjoining dining room that exhibit the chef’s dual passions: Foy’s paintings and culinary mastery. The space is accented by a floor-to- ceiling Black Walnut Nakashima panel, lighting by Ayala Serfaty, the Israeli artist, with Arnie Jacobsen modern Classic chairs, finishing the sleek warm welcoming room. Please note, due to high demand and limited seating, in addition to online holds we require diners call the restaurant to reconfirm your by 12pm day of, or it will not be honored.

This is a very small space that seats 24 and the tables are packed in pretty tight so I would go on a Thursday or Sunday night if you want to have a quieter more relaxed experience. (we went on a Sunday). The kitchen is also small and is right there (a small barrier is in place), the owner is the chef and his wife is the server. The food was great, service - no complaints. We will be back!

This very small restaurant is owned by a husband and wife team in which the husband does all the cooking. To say that he is a world class chef would be an understatement. They only have a few tables and only accept cash. Outstanding.

A small, comfortable place with consistently excellent food. A seafood heavy menu which I love, but is a bit problematic for my husband. Stella is a lovely welcoming presence, the byob policy is a plus, along with a pleasant noise level. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience.

I keep following Dennis Foy around and he continues to earn terrific praise. I had the perfect piece of halibut after the most melt-in-your-mouth gnocchi. I don’t know why he likes these small cramped places. More people need to enjoy his talents.

The food was nice, not excellent or very memorable. The entrees were overpriced for what was on the plate and we were hungry again a short time later. Noise level was pretty high on the Saturday night we went. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

First time here but definitely not the last time. Small intimate restaurant with husband and wife team that make you feel warm and welcome. The menu is limited but then again everything from soup to nuts is homemade. Food, service, etc was excellent. Highly recommend!

Boutique restaurant where the chef and his wife make you feel like you are a special guest in their home. Small, warm artistic atmosphere. And of course, delicious food!

It is the most amazing food in New Jersey, let alone Lambertville and New Hope. I live part time in France and this is what Paris was like 15 years ago. If your looking for amazing food, intimate atmosphere, look no further. Well Done!

The food was perfect. Staff charming and even though it is a small space it wasn’t too noisy. Delicious French food expertly cooked. The skate was a special while we were there and it was a masterpiece. Other chefs overly brown the butter which causes it to dominate the delicate fish. Not this skilled chef. The butter complemented the perfectly cooked fish. The mushroom soup (also a special) delighted my husband. My husband is more meat and potatoes than lentils and staff was accommodating and gave him pureed fingerlings instead which were unbelievable creamy and decadent. We could not have had a better meal or evening anywhere else and will return soon and often.

The menus is small but don’t let that discourage you. Every item was delicious. Limited choices but all perfect.

Fabulous food and warm, efficient service. It was very loud in the restaurant, making conversation hard, but once the table next to us left we could talk.

This was truly one of the best meals I have ever had. The appetizers were made from the freshest ingredients. You could taste the care that went into preparation. And the lamb chops were out of this world.

What an intimate dining experience that is a personal expression of the owners. The food is sublime and since it's a BYO, the liquor bill is tempered. D'floret is a destination restaurant with a casual ambience, appropriate for a weekday evening out or the most special of occasions.

I rarely write a review; however, feel compelled to for our visit to D'Floret. I can't wait to go back. I've seen the building for some time now and always wondered what it was. So happens we selected to go to D'Floret without realizing this is the restaurant I've been wondering about. So glad we did.
Excellent milieu, excellent menu, excellent meal, excellent service, owners are outstanding.
To sum it up - we will be back!

A beautiful setting to celebrate our newly empty nest. A lovely spot hidden away from the crowded, trendy streets of Lambertville. The small, intimate space is charming and unique, with beautiful artwork and stunning centerpiece lighting. The hostess and staff were attentive, yet unobtrusive. The menu was varied and creative. Each of our selections were beautifully presented and quite delicious. Try the creme brûlée... it was remarkable!

Rarely does a $30-$40 entree live up to the billing. I would have paid double.

Food was off the charts! We had squash soup (I’ll never forget), rack of lamb (how in the world did the chef create this?), smoke salmon/beet appetizer (I almost cried it was so good), and a tuna main course.

It’s our new favorite restaurant! We’ve been going about twice a month- perfectly seasoned food. I never even ask for a salt shaker- it’s just so flavorful. Service is attentive by Estella. Recommendations are always spot on. Every time we take someone new, they can’t wait to go back. Very creative menu. Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

Best meal Ive had in a long time. This hidden gem will be my new go to place (byob & cash only). Definitely order the Tian crab (app) and share the Strip Steak (it’s enormous). Don’t skimp on dessert, you won’t be disappointed.
