The evening started out well. We were seated in their window booth, which was cozy but cold. (I happened to be sitting in the side facing the wall, so I found myself staring at the wallpaper a lot, since there wasn’t anything to look at.). Our waiter was attentive at first. We told him we were going to see an 8:00 show at the Playhouse, so he suggested we order everything at once. My husband got oysters (raw), which he said were very good. My cousin and I split the tuna tartare salad, which was fantastic. After that we must have waited at least a half hour for our meals. I believe someone finally came to clear our appetizer plates, but it took a long while. The food was yummy: the crab cake was huge and fresh, the tuna was perhaps slightly overcooked, but still delicious, and the short ribs over scallop noodles (literally noodles made out of scallops!) was incredible! When we finished eating at approximately 7:15, and again we waited for someone to come clear our plates and offer dessert or coffee. We had even requested the dessert menu, but it never came, nor did the check. At around 7:40, my husband had to track down our waiter, who apparently was doing double duty as the bartender. With barely an apology for NEVER coming back, we paid and left. - just in time for the show. We will think twice about going back because of the terrible service, but can’t deny that the food was excellent (though pricey.)

Its was our first time here in a few years since moving back to New Hope and We LOVED it! From the interesting and delicious pre-dinner cocktails to the wine with dinner everything was even better than I remember. We enjoyed baked oysters, grilled shrimp w anchovy butter, crab cake (like no other) and seafood nachos - which are actually house made potato chips - Yum! Zoubi is my new favorite and highly recommended. Next time we'll leave room for dessert!

Food was excellent as was the ambience and setting. Could have been a better value with a salad or side that was included in the entree'. Would definitely recommend and go back!

This was our first visit to Zoubi, and both of us were impressed by the entire experience. The food was exceptional. My wife had beef and scallop "noodle" dish, which was cooked to perfection. I tried seared scallops, one of the evening's specials, and they were great. (I would also suggest the tuna poke as a starter.) Our server, Kate, was happy to answer a variety of questions, and she did a great job checking in and being there when we needed her. We would look forward to returning.

As always the dining experience at Zoubi's is sensational. Laurent (the maitre de) takes great care to ensure we are treated to a wonderful experience. The food alone has us coming back, but add to that the ambience and the care at which we are presented makes this a must go place for a romantic evening, family gathering or just to meet some people.
thank you for being just who you are

Neat place for sure. A little "pricey" on most items, but was a fun night. Place is small and with a loud group in the same small space, well need I saw more. Once they left things were much better. No fault of restaurant per se, but they might have intervened just once to see if that might have helped. Oh well.

Ate at Zoubi for the first time for our anniversary. The restaurant is beautiful and the outside eating area is unique and romantic. Our server was phenomenal and the cocktails were some of the best we have ever had. The food was the star of the meal. The seafood nachos were a great way to start the meal. We ended up ordering the sole and scallops “noodles” for our entrees. Both were delicious with the scallop dish being the standout being delicious and unique. We finished up dinner were a pressed pot of coffee and almond pear pie. We loved everything about this meal and will definitely be back at Zoubi again.

We had the best seat in the house- private little booth in a window. The food was absolutely mouth watering and speciality pumpkin cocktail delicious. It was such a lovely way to spend our anniversary- we will be back!

Zoubi is delightful for outdoor dining. An intimate patio garden provides a peaceful, beautiful setting. The wait staff is attentive and prompt but unobtrusive. Prices are high, but the food is outstanding. A good place to go for a special occasion.

Fantastic experience from the moment we walked down the quaint alley into the outdoor courtyard where we dined to the last fork-full of our decadent desserts! We received a warm and friendly greeting as soon as we walked in and were seated where we could enjoy the lush vegetation adorning the courtyard. The service was flawless from the serving of the wine to the thoughtful replacement of eating utensils throughout the meal. From the homemade Rosemary Focacia bread to the White Gazpacho soup to the Jumbo Grilled Shrimp to our main courses of Rack of Lamb with lentils (which I typically don't care for) and beets that melted in my mouth and a Sirloin Steak with cheesy mashed potatoes and a portion of Ratatoui (I think?) the entire meal was FABULOUS! We finished with a chocolate ganache and a lemon mouse that perfectly completed the entire experience. They even kept my husband's leftovers (the steak was so big he couldn't finish) in their fridge while we attended a show at the Bucks County Playhouse! We will be recommending Zoubi to everyone!

What a great little find! I can't believe we've never been here in the 30 years that I've lived in this area. It's tucked away from the hubbub of New Hope, with a very pretty outdoor space. The menu has some unusual choices with foods that you never would have paired together, such as short rib over noodles made of scallops! Dessert was generous and the cheese plate was also delicious with multiple dips and bread along with it. I suggest that you go in warmer weather or when you are dressed warmly, as a large part of the restaurant is outside. Definitely recommend.

Had known of Zoubi for years. This was a fabulous experience from beginning to end. Creative preparation meets careful, attentive service. Gorgeous courtyard to boot. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable of both the wine selections as well as the menu options. At no point we're we ever feeling rushed or being ignored. The pace was perfect and made for an exceptional evening. I had the short rib and scallop dish where the scallop has been carved into "noodles" (trust me). That dish was the most outstanding thing I've had - creativity bar none - and I travel extensively on business where I've had the opportunity to try it all. My wife had the crab cake which was artistically presented but in no way was it small. We paired the meal with a dry rose (vin de provence) that was perfect for an outdoor meal where the weather here in the area had a major break in the heat. We were celebrating an occasion and this made our evening. Will be returning for sure. Strongly recommended for foodies and those who want a quiet, quaint, romantic evening over a delicious creative meal.
