Restaurant Review

Anton's at the Swan offers a delightful dining experience that combines a charming ambiance with an affordable food menu.

Located in the historic Swan Hotel, Anton's at the Swan is an historic, romantic Inn where you can enjoy a well-executed American fare while dining in a soft candlelit setting.

While Anton's remains an above-average, high-end Lambertville restaurant, in recent years they have been falling behind as one of Lambertville's best restaurants with the arrival of new high-end restaurants in a more competitive environment.

Chef-owner Chris Connors has a notable culinary career having worked in the kitchens of the Frenchtown Inn, and at the acclaimed Doris and Ed's, in Highlands, NJ before opening Anton's at the Swan in 2001. Chef Connors serves a well-executed seasonally changing menu using fresh, local ingredients.

The dining room ambiance is historic with dark wooden trim walls adorned with large mirrors, artworks, and tall candlesticks.

For a romantic occasion, when making a reservation, ask for a table by the fireplace for that special romantic touch.

During the warmer months, there is outside dining in the garden patio.

Kids are not recommended.

On street parking is limited, on busy times, expect to walk several blocks for a spot.
