Dinner and service was great. My husband ordered the grilled shrimp special and 5 medium/large were served for $39. Way overpriced for what was served. Otherwise, all was delicious.

Odette’s has a lovely, modern ambience. We thought it was overpriced for the quality of food, which was good but not amazing. (It was the least favorite of our dinners in New Hope but by far the most expensive.) The best part of the meal was the amazing violinist entertainer. Overall, a very nice night but not remarkable.

Beautiful restaurant. It was our first time eating at Odette's. The valet parking was easy. Using one's phone to read the menu via QR code was different, though they had physical menus on request. The cocktails were excellent and the food stellar. My only complaint was the live music was just a bit too loud. Not obnoxiously so, but we had to talk loudly to hear each other.

I had reserved and requested a quiet table with a window river view if possible. It was a Sunday night , 4 guests. They seated us in the upper dining room with no view. A speaker above our table blared the singer and guitar player so we couldn’t hear each other or the waitress. Four times the waitress tried to turn down the music and even the assistant manager got involved to no avail. Appetizers and soups were very good and the duck was reported to be excellent. The flatiron steaks with pasta, the pasta was to al cents for two diners. The desserts were excellent. The wine order was messed up and the wrong thing delivered to our table. We would not go back again until the music volume is corrected.

Tasteful contemporary decor with lofty glass windows to take advantage of the Delaware river and canal views. Food and drinks were well prepared, well presented and delicious. Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing. Prices are comparable to a fine restaurant in the city.

We will definitely return.

Beautiful restaurant! They did an amazing job. I was a bit apprehensive about my dinner because of all the negative reviews. I/we were very pleasantly surprised! The atmosphere, food and service were all very good! The portions are are more than ample, nicely presented and delicious. It is a little on the pricey side, especially the cocktails. $17 for a martini is beyond ridiculous! And, the valet charge of $20 is also ridiculous and should be discounted for guests of the restaurant.
Overall, it was a lovely evening and we would absolutely go back again! Wouldn't rush, but would go back.

Started with drinks outside by the fireplace, very nice, great server who also served us as we moved inside to dine.
Started with escargot, very good and hot. Salad just ok. French onion soup not hot and also not very good.
Dinner both gentlemen ordered the duck, good flavor, but not hot, room temp for the entire dish.
2 orders of the pasta, one with steak, also delivered cool.
The restaurant was not busy and even if it was, for the prices that are being charged everything should have been excellent. Nothing that was ordered was that difficult.
Spent over 300$ and then they didn’t voucher your parking ticket so it costs the 4 of us another 40$ to park, that is just ridiculous!!!
I guess this was a once and done! Had high expectations!

Odettes is a beautiful restaurant and the staff extremely courteous and professional. This was our second experience there and it was the Easter Price Fixe menu. I felt that the meal wasn’t worth the $70 per person. The Halibut was too salty and they ran out of the Ribeye. My son ended up ordering a burger because the ribeye was gone. The wedge salad was delicious though and the desserts were as well. We had a good time overall. I just didn’t love the menu that day.

I've lived in New Hope for 23 years and visit the local restaurants all the time. By far, Riverhouse at Odette's is the very best food in New Hope EVER. I've been 5 times so far, and anything I order is beautifully prepared, is delicious and the plating is gorgeous. We enjoyed the Easter Prefix menu yesterday and we had a great time and enjoyed everything. The coconut dessert treat should always be on the menu please.

Overall the food was good and the place was very nice. My only complaint is that they charged me $20 for parking and added it to my restaurant bill while telling me they were validating my parking ticket.
If you dine at the restaurant, they should have waived the parking!

The service was horrible, we sat for 20 minutes until someone finally came over to us. All of the staff seemed clueless. I noticed every party that came in was waiting 10 plus minutes to be seated. I even saw a gentleman get up and hand his credit card to the host because his waiter was nowhere to be found. The food was mediocre and served at room temperature. The cocktails were overly sweet and not shaken well. The wine list was not special and there wasn’t a lot of options for a luxury hotel. Not to mentioned everything was priced as a luxury restaurant, but was not at all worth the money. Our waitress was nice and was trying hard as I think she knew we weren’t happy. At the end she offered to validate our valet parking, which was very nice. The valet parking was the best experience. The guys were welcoming and opened the door for us and told us which floor the restaurant was on. At the end of the night we texted them that we were coming down, once we came down our car was waiting for us. I also saw them running to get other customers cars as quickly as possible. We were very excited to try this new place, as I saw a lot of positive reviews. However, we were very disappointed and won’t be returning again.

Our third time here and it gets better every time. Our waiter, Anthony, was excellent. Fun and informative and engaging. The strolling violinist was lovely. Odette’s’ latest incarnation is bigger, better, and very enjoyable. For those who decry the corporatization of New Hope, I would point out the jobs created, the attention to history, both the community and the personality that was Odette, and the commissioned paintings and prints by local artists. Relax and enjoy, New Hope!
