We had a wonderful prix fixe dinner (the only kind available). Both the food and ambiance were excellent and the dining room was quiet enough for conversation - a rarity these days. I especially liked bringing our own wine from the liquor store just across the parking lot. This restaurant, like most of the good ones in Lambertville, is closed... More

We often meet our best friends of 35 years that live in Princeton mid way in Lambertville for drinks & dinner and love Brian's. A drink at Lambertville Station starts the evening then a two block walk to Brian's where we were thrilled to find a changed menu with some delightful new selections as well as new decor. The dining... More

We had tried to get into Brian's on prior occasions, based on the uniformly outstanding reviews, but couldn't seem to make it happen. This time, we called well in advance and made a reservation for a Thursday evening during a short stay in the Lambertville-New Hope community. What a fabulous taste experience awaited us in our selections from the fixed... More

Did not meet expectations with service, food, cost. In fairness, I am a vegetarian and my partner is pescatarian. So our options were a little more limited. The mushroom bisque was tasty and a little rich.

We went with another couple on Saturday night. Everything about Brian's was terrific, especially the 3-course, divine meal and our beautiful, attentive waiter. The only detriment to the evening was that a table near us was celebrating a birthday and very noisy.

We dined at Brian's the other night, and it was a top-notch experience in every way. The room is tastefully decorated, seats only about 38, and has enough fabric to absorb sound, so conversation is easy. The three-course dinner mid-week at $45. is certainly a good value, as the food was tremendous. If you care to spend an additional $10... More

Brian's is a fantastic restaurant! We went in early March, and the menu changes very often. We had heard that is could get noisy, but we had the whole place to ourselves so that was nice. They offer an excellent price: Prix Fixe for just 45 bucks. So three courses for $15 each, no matter what food you get. It... More

Met friends for dinner recently after two years away from the area. They suggested this restaurant, and we can trust them when it comes to food. We were not disappointed! The bread that was served JUST TO START was off the charts. The most delicious I've ever had. Almost made me think I was in Paris eating a warm croissant.... More

Dinner here is a treat. My wife and I ate here with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Located on a side street in Lambertville, this small restaurant only serves three course Prix Fix meals. The price is usually $50 per person, which is very reasonable for the quality of the food. Two of us had the salmon and... More

Excellent food - delightful dinner with braised short ribs for me and a wonderful crabcake for my true love! Service was a bit annoying - another party was seated at a table and seemed to receive all of the service attention while we were a bit of an after thought. The desserts were superb. All of our courses were extremely... More
