Both the main dining room at Anton's and the Swan Bar are really lovely, with an historic, gracious, genteel ambiance. It's a quiet bar, where you can actually talk. We were two friends looking forward to catching up, and chose casual seating and dinner in the bar. The entrees on the Bar menu seem to be identical to the dining room, very smart, and the Bar Menu also includes burgers and interesting grilled pizzas. "Swan" by the way refers to Swan Creek and Swan Street, not birds on a pond.
The bar is cozy and beautiful, with an incredible ceiling and art covering the walls. You can sink into a couch with small tables scattered about. I do mean sink, kinda hard to get up! The table is small for dinner but we made it work fine. We were situated facing a nice courtyard, a bonus.
For dinner, we shared the watercress and beet salad with goat cheese; it was disappointing as the watercress had some yellowed leaves and not so fresh tasting. My main was coq au vin with spaetzle, and it was delicious! Wish we'd had some bread to dip in the broth, which was flavorful and smelled heavenly - perfect for Fall. My friend had the halibut with lemon and capers, nicely presented, which she also loved.
Parking can be a problem in Lambertville, so be prepared to walk a few (or more) blocks if there is no space in the Swan lot, and bring lots of change.
