Amazing time at Anton’s at the Swan! Terry completely spoiled us with her stellar knowledge & “just right” amount of attention. And the food...... yum! My husband & I are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you for a beautiful evening.

I love this place. The only issue we had was that the octopus appetizer had. A small proportion of octopus compared to the risotto.

Always great going to Anton's! There were four adults with a 14-year-old. Worried that he might not like the food, but he loved it as much as we did. They were visiting from out-of-state. It was an experience worthy of praise!

We are staying in a lovely inn in New Hope and researched restaurants for a good dinner. I came across The Swan Bar and by the description, knew we needed to try it. So why not book the restaurant Anton’s there as well? So glad we did both! I would recommend a drink at the bar with the very affable bartender in a tavern like atmosphere and then transfer over to the lovely small, white linen tabled dining room. The menu is small but we found enough choices to satisfy us. We began with a well made Caesar salad (actually had lemon in it) and fresh toasted croutons and my partner had a cold chickpea with feta soup which was deemed an A plus , The warm homemade boule with fresh butter was possibly one of the best breads we ever tasted I ordered the guinea hen with risotto and my partner had the pork chop which was moist and cooked perfectly. After that we thought we were finished and too full for dessert but we were tempted by the fresh blueberry ganache with homemade vanilla ice cream. Fabulous! There us a very nice wine list or by the glass with very reasonable prices. Possibly the most wonderful part of the experience was not the food but the hostess/waitress Tary?. Please excuse the spelling. She knew the food intimately and could almost finish my sentence when describing a fish choice. A charming, gracious, knowledgeable lady who added to a completely wonderful dining experience. We will need to come back for sure.

Absolutely perfect in every way. Limited but beautifully prepared and tasty entree. Outstanding crab cake appetizers and beet and arugula salad. Lovely ambience including hurricane lamps with candles and soft Sinatra music background. Quiet enough to actually have a conversation on a Saturday night!

We arrived early Sunday evening for an impromptu dinner. Fortunately for us, Lawrenceville is quiet on a Sunday night. The restaurant is a converted hotel from the mid 1800’s and has a tremendous element of charm. Wine selection by the glass is good with an 8oz pour ranging from $8-12.
My wife had a salad with goat cheese and beets which she enjoyed. I had the pate to start, also quite good for a Starter.

We both ordered the rare tuna and it was very good and seared to perfection.

Service was excellent and should be since we were the only customers in the dining room.

Highly recommended

Beautiful dining room in an historic building that is consistently the best. We’ve been here four or five times in the past 2 months and not a single disappointment. Warm, welcoming staff, terrific food served in an elegant dining room. Our new favorite!

Anton's was recommended to me. Quite a disappointment. The pork chop was very tough and hard to cut. The tuna my friend had was laid on top of creamed spinach which made the tuna soggy. Dessert was so late in arriving we asked to cancel it. The waitress was just bringing it and was smart. She comped it and apologized for delay. Very disappointed as this could have become a regular.

l;The menu has limited choices however the food is very very good. I had the sword fish and my wife the hslibut and both were excellent. The watermelon feta salad which I had and the potato leek soup (served chilled) which my wife had were also very good. The service was attentive and glad to discuss the menu with the patrons. We went here because another restaurant we usually go to had no reservations. Im glad we chose Anton's.

Our first visit to Anton's at the Swan. My overall impression was that it's a little dated (both the menu and the atmosphere); clearly a neighborhood stalwart that has been around for the long haul. However, the service was good and the food was well-prepared. I was disappointed that there weren't more seasonal items on the menu. Aside from the watermelon/feta salad (which was mostly arugula), there really wasn't anything that was inspired by spring/summer. Surprising, given the vast array of locally available produce in Bucks County. The orange duck breast was crispy and juicy, and my husband's filet was one of the best he's ever had. Apparently you can order cocktails from the Swan Bar next door, however we didn't realize it as there was no mention of cocktails on the menu (the bar looks really cute - will try that next time). I would describe the decor as Bucks County historic. These items combined explains why the majority of the other diners were our parents' age, and appeared to be locals who frequent this establishment.
