Ate there today. Was skeptical because most establishments in the area were rated higher. The interior is quirky but I like that. I had the beet salad with grilled chicken. Yum! I ate the entire thing! The server was gracious and attentive. For what I...More

We ate outside and watched the last night of the New Hope Friday night Fireworks. The food was very good. Not something you couldn't get elsewhere, but a good quality and great service.

Cute restaurant by the canal in Lambertsville across from New Hope. Good food. They have good desserts on display but did not try it. Decent lunch menu. Worth trying it if you are in the area.

We were really pleased with our meals topped off with a bottle of sangria. The New Haven Clam Chowder was really special. The atmosphere and service were just right. I will return.

We ate with friends at Lily's on a beautiful fall evening. Everything was perfect. Our server was polite and attentive. We enjoyed the eggplant fries; the pasta special and swordfish specials were delicious. There is something for everyone on the menu.

We had a wonderful dinner here. I was with a big group and everyone had something different but I will say the big hit was the lamb chops over spinach and mashed potatos. If it's on the menu - try it...

We had dinner here one Friday evening with a friend and found the whole experience to be extremely delightful. We chose outdoor seating along the D & R Canal path, a very charming and private courtyard. Lamb was excellent, along with seafood dishes. Best yet,...More
