Lambertville NJ area

Going to a wedding next weekend. Posted this on PA board also. Looking for a good restaurant for dinner for six people.

  1. Cross over to New Hope and go to Marsha Brown. The food is excellent.

    1. FYI....their crab cheesecake dish is delicious!

      1. I prefer Marsha Browns for lunch at the bar, and yes, the crab cheesecake is ridiculous. For dinner:

        Hamilton Grill Room
        Cafe Galleria

        New Hope:

        All of these restaurants are BYO, and I have not had a bad meal at any of them.


        Cafe Galleria is small, but their simple menu is great and the prices are fabulous. Call ahead for a reservation!

        Rick's: there can be a line here, but all you do is sign in on the clip board hanging on the wall. Stick with the specials and homemade pasta's! Good place!

        Hamilton Grill Room: gorgeous place to sit outside in great weather! And do drinks across the way at The Boat House before or after dinner! Charming little place!

        All restaurants listed are BYO! Hope that helos! -mJ

          Cafe Galleria is temporarily at Lambertville House because of flooding.

        2. For something different and casual, try El Tule which is a Mexican and Peruvian restaurant. Their Peruvian dishes are great. They are also BYO. I also like Hamilton Grill Room (have drinks at the Boat House next door).

          1. Since you say Lambertville AREA, I'm going to suggest that you drive for 20 minutes and go to the Blue Bottle Cafe in Hopewell. This is simply one of the best little restaurants in the state and has come in for very high praise both on this board and elsewhere. It's excellent, it's BYO and it's very popular. If you want to go on a Friday or Saturday, reserve now.

              Thank you everyone for your suggestions. We only have time for one lunch and one dinner so I will let you know what we decide. We will be with other family members so I will have to review all the suggestions with them. Thanks again.

                Seconding ambrose. I LOVE Lambertville-New Hope for dining options, but my hands-down favorite is Blue Bottle. It's not very far away at all, and totally worht the trip.
