Wonderful food and outstanding service. One of our diners raved about the duck - the best that she's ever had! The raviolis and the monkfish were excellent as well and the sides that accompanied them completed the experience. We didn't need it, but we yielded to dessert and all 3 things that we tried we delicious. We'll definitely be back!

We waited more than half an hour for our table. No one apologized or offered and offset for the inconvenience. The bar was way over crowded and the bartenders were slow and had to ask several times for us the repeat our drink orders

Zoubi is a cozy French inspired restaurant. The food is outstanding. The servers are quite knowledgeable and truly want you to have an excellent dining experience. They have an extensive wine list to accommodate any tastes or pairings. Interesting cocktail menu. Not really sure the cocktails fit the theme of the restaurant, but they are well crafted. My only negative is how long it takes for dinner to be served. We had a 7pm reservation and did not get our entrees until close to 9pm. It may have been an off night, but still soured our experience a bit. I will say that our server/ matre d' tried to reconcile this negative as best he could. I highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic evening. I do advise to book the 5pm seating instead of the busier 7pm time.

Zoubi was exactly what you want for a date night or dinner with friends where you want to converse. The atmosphere is intimate & romantic but not stiff. The service was truly stellar. I ordered soup and when it took a little long to come out, the owner brought us a 2nd round of drinks on the house as an apology. We hadn't even been upset about waiting on the soup. The food was really delicious, beautifully prepared and they even gave us complimentary house-made macarons with our check.

Lovely place to dine when in New Hope. I travel the world and eat out constantly it is very hard for me to give it five stars. The restaurant is lovely. The food is good but could be better with small enhancements to the menu. I always evaluate the meal based upon if I could duplicate it at home with a little effort. Unfortunately this could easily be done at home. Service was good but with very little enthusiasm from the wait staff. Not that it was bad service it was just dry. I would dine here again. But not before trying some of the other restaurants in town. Give it a try you won’t be disappointed and you just might have a better experience than myself.

We enjoyed our pre-theatre dinner at Zoubi. We have dined here on the patio during the summer, which is really very nice, but inside is kitchy and cozy - love the artwork! Other than being ignored by the waitstaff for the first 10 minutes after our arrival, the service was good. Cocktails were yummy. I had a shrimp special with chorizo served over cheesy polenta - really good and not too spicy for my taste. We will likely return.

Zoubi was wonderful! The food (I had the salmon) was outstanding and the service was quick but not too intrusive. Wine selection was impressive considering the size of the restaurant and the actual atmosphere was adorable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be dining again in the future!

Small, intimate restaurant better suited for warm weather dining, as the kitchen is outside the main building and so the door is always open, causing the dining room to freeze. Food was very good but would rather have smaller prices and smaller portions.

Rainy Friday night dinner with friends of 30 years whom we hadn't seen for ages... Friendly and welcoming 'front of house' staff led us to a private alcove with windows overlooking the street (a quiet table had been requested, although the restaurant never became noisy). No one hurried us through our cocktails/wine/appetizers (don't miss the blood orange martini, BTW), or, for that matter, any part of our meal. Crab, short rib and lamb entrees were excellent, and the trout was spectacular! We finished our meal with French press coffee and shared a sweet Brazilian concoction of whipped cream and chocolate and a deeply flavorful pecan tart. 'Not a sour note the whole evening - We'll be back!!!
