  1. I like Manon - French BYO bistro in L'ville. Small, cozy, tables very close together and the noise level can get high. No fireplace though. The Stockton Inn just up the road from Lambertville hasgood food and fireplaces. Farther north there is the Frenchtown Inn in Frenchtown and the Black Bass Inn in Lumberville (on the PA side - it was closed due to flooding last year so call first). I think both of those places have fireplaces and the food is good. Also check out the Centerville Inn just across the river from Stockton. They probably have fireplaces too. Haven't eaten there.

      The Centerville Inn does have at least one fireplace. Be aware, however, that the bridge from Stockton, NJ is closed so if you're approaching from the NJ side be prepared to make a LONG detour. I think the Sergeantsville Inn also has a fireplace.

      Not aware of places in Lambertville that have a fireplace but I'm sure they exist.

      PS Love Manon!

      1. ok thanks, i think i remember reading about the SInn, I may try that

        1. Definitely go to the Swan in Lambertville. Eat in the bar area and order the mashed potatoe pizza. Unfortunately, it isn't a BYO and their wine selection is sub-par, but the food and atmosphere will make up for it.

            We had dinner at Anton's at the Swan not long after they first opened. Maybe 10 years ago? I recall that the room was lovely, and I have a dim memory of a rack of lamb, but that's it. We must not have been very impressed with the food at that time because, even though we've been to Lambertville many times since then (we head down there at least once or twice during the warm weather months), we've never thought about going back to Anton's. Looking at his bio on the website, I see that Chef Chris Connors bought the restaurant in 2001. So, new-to-us chef/owner + a menu that looks inviting = thoughts of giving it another try.

              Inn of the Hawke in Lambertville has a fireplace and serves both full dinner and lighter food.
