I was spoiled, once again, at this great restaurant. I haven't been here since they came back from their vacation in June. I am always fearful that after so many years here, that chef Jean Michel may think of hanging up his apron.

Octopus appetizer was fabulous - even on a very busy night out friendly server did his best to keep things moving.

Manon is a tiny boîte in the heart of Lambertville, perhaps the most adorable restaurant in town. Stepping inside is like stepping onto a Jacques Tati film set - more rustic and dated (intentionally) than the recent brasserie chic. Seating is close, but space is adequate enough. The food is seriously old-school (and delicious), and the service and pacing of the meal is laconic. The kind of diner who will have a marvelous time at Manon (as we did) will not be in a rush, will nestle in with a few of their own best bottles (it's BYO), enjoy a long conversation with their companion(s), and will treasure the rusticity and homey nature of the restaurant as brilliant and hard-to-find features. This is definitely an analog restaurant, a place savvy diners will treasure!

We were up from Florida and came back to our favorite restaurant. A great Bistro BYO that we cannot replicate in Florida. Both the pistou and mushroom soups were very well prepared. My wife and I measure their duck presentation against all others. The striped bass was extremely good.

Happy anniversary dinner with my beautiful wife. The warm goat cheese salad was divine. I’m still dreaming about the Bouillabaisse, so yummy. However, the only downside of the whole experience was that we had to wait to the end of our meal to experience the scrumptious home made desserts.

Can’t wait until our next experience at Manon

If you squint just a little, have a glass or two of the wine you brought, you can think you are in a little bistro on a side street in Paris! Very sweet decor, lovely server, not at all pretentious and delicious food!
I noticed that my husband was the only male in the restaurant.....I agree that it is the perfect choice for a girls night out and also perfect choice for celebrating a special occasion. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. He and I were both pleased, I think you will be too!

This has become my new favorite restaurant. Tiny place with one server, but you never feel neglected. The food is absolutely amazing. You can get a fixed price meal during the week, but not on the weekends. Had an amazing filet, cooked to perfection with blue cheese this past weekend. The potatoes au gratin were so good I wanted to grab my husband's off his plate before he could find out how good they were. Mushroom soup is a favorite too. You won't be disappointed if you eat at Manon's - but bring lots of quarters to feed the parking meters on the street.

We love the authentic atmosphere. The lamb chops were done to perfection and the vegetables crisp without being underdone. As you can bring your own wine I can't think of any restaurant with better value. Would recommend Manon to anyone who is a food lover. The fact that that this is a BYOB restaurant is a plus.
We are definitely returning but would not order fish soup or stew or the apple tart which was mushy and way too sweet for our palates. Otherwise thumbs up.

Wanted to treat friends to a very special dining experience and we hit the mark with Manon. We’ve lived in the area for 38 years and never heard about it. So glad we found it because we’ll be returning over and over again. My filet with a blue cheese sauce was the most tender I’ve ever had. My husband was thrilled to find liver and onions on the menu and it didn’t disappoint. Our guests had the shrimp and scallops in lobster sauce and enjoyed it immensely! Service was very attentive. Looking forward to dining there again very soon!

The evening was spoiled by a very unfriendly waitress who was impossible to find. Had to be asked twice for everything (with long waits between her appearances). Each time she finally arrived, she acted like she was doing us a favor. My salmon arrived over cooked on an extremely hot plate. May have been microwaved after waiting for my partner’s steak to be cooked. The steak was good. I have not been here in decades. Now I will never return. I don’t understand the rave reviews or the packed dining room.

Terrific French food, charming place, great value, excellent service. And fearless -- they were about the only Lambertville restaurant to stay open through Sunday night's snow storm!

We had a wonderful time at Manon. The food is delicious and it has a very French vibe. It is decorated in a cute Provencal style. It is a BYOB restaurant which made the evening not too costly and we brought a really good bottle of red with us
