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 the best restaurant in New Jersey. There's no competition. Just drive down here, bring your cash, and prepare to be amazed with every bite; start to finish.

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.

We have s handful of go to restaurants but most have disappointed us at one point or another. That had never been the case at d'floret. The chef selects only the best ingredients and allows them to speak for themselves with simple yet extraordinary preparation. I've had the rack of lamb on about 60% of our visits but somehow tonight's example was the best ever. My wife is even more loyal to the scallops. Selecting from the list of appetizers is quite a challenge and we have never once been disappointed. Mushroom soul for me this time, Tian of crab the usual for my wife. I could easily select three appetizer for my meal.

Last night was our first time dining at this delicious French bistro. Our friends recommended we go for our anniversary since they loved the food. I totally agree with them. First I would recommend eating outback since it's so peaceful & inviting. We started with the Tian Crab & mushroom crepe & both dishes were amazing. We savored every bite. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his Dry Aged 16oz Sirloin steak cooked to perfection. I had the scallops & they were so tender, not gritty & very flavorful. I would definitely recommend their homemade desserts. The Apple/walnut & Peach were the best pies we have ever had & were topped off with their vanilla bean ice cream. Looking forward to going back soon.🍷🥰

The food here is outstanding. I enjoyed a tian of crab as an appetizer and a rack of lamb with sweet corn and polenta as an entree and finished with peach pie and French vanilla ice cream for dessert. The dry rub on the lamb provided excellent seasoning, and the meat itself was so tender. Last-of-the-season peaches in the pie were delicious! Overall, an excellent birthday celebration - topped off with a crisp bottle of Inglenook’s Blancaneaux and a nice conversation with the chef at the end of the meal.

Still amazing after all these years. Great appetizers with mushrooms — check (a wonderful soup and an equally delicious crepe). Terrific main courses — check (swordfish, duck and what was tantamount to a langoustine pot pie). Desserts that honor the rest of the dinner — check (peach pie and profiteroles). Service remains top-notch. Just a wonderful experience.

We had the mushroom crepe which was excellent, scallops which was quite good and a rack of lamb with Ratatouille which was also excellent. However, it took forever for bread to arrive and then for our meal to be served and the lamb was lukewarm. The table next to us arrived about the same time we did and they were served and left 30 minutes before us . They took the rack of lamb back and reheated it and it was fine.

Tha food was delicious & the staff was very attentive. However, we were very disappointed to discover that it was a BYOB. We had no idea & never saw it on your web site. Also, I kept getting notifications about our reservation but no mention of bringing our own wine. Fortunately there was a liquor store a block away.
Also we had no idea there was outdoor seating. It was a beautiful evening & we were never told or offered the opportunity to dine outdoors. We would have enjoyed the opportunity.
