Restaurant Review


dfloret Restaurant is yet another Dennis Foy fine dining restaurant and one of the top two restaurants in the Lambertville area.


Acclaimed Chef Dennis Foy has had his last five restaurants (all of them highly regarded fine dining restaurants) close in four years or less; Dennis Foy - Lawrenceville, Dennis Foy - New York, Bay Point Prim - Point Pleasant, Dennis Foy's - Point Pleasant, and EQ - New York.


Chef Foy is one of the top chefs in NJ having received his start in culinary training at the Tarragon Tree with his brother John, followed by a series of stints over the years in great American restaurants, such as the "21" Club, "La Cote Basque", under Jean Jacques Rachou, and with Jean Blanchet of "Le Francais" in Wheeling, Illinois. Foy estages include Michelin Three Star Chef Michel Guerard of "Les Prés d'Eugénie", "les Freres Troisgros" of Roanne, and "L'Espérance" Marc Meneau restaurant in St Pere, Veseley, France.


d'floret is set in a small twenty eight seat, eight table venue with the interior decor designed by Foy's wife and partner Estella Quinones who with grace and charm, oversees the operation of the restaurant and the wait staff.


The interior has a contemporary vibe with an open kitchen and adjoining dining room. The dining area features a floor-to-ceiling black walnut Nakashima panel, tables set with white linen, and modern classic chairs.


Chef Foy is also an accomplished artist and very much like his previous restaurants, Foy's paintings adorn the walls.


Chef Foy is adept at presenting a creative, seasonal menu with a limited selection of well prepared contemporary American dishes using local organic farm ingredients and day boat fish.


His dishes demonstrate his commitment to local farm-to-table fresh ingredients from Western NJ and Eastern PA farms.


There is also outdoor dining during the warmer months on a 50-seat outdoor patio.

dfloret Restaurant is open for Dinner six nights/week from Tuesday through Saturday, 5:30–9pm, Sunday, 5–8pm


The restaurant is not recommended for kids or large groups.
