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.

Absolutely one of the best dining experiences and meals I have had. My daughter and I are real foodies and we were so impressed with our experience and meal. Every course was delicious, abundant, beautifully presented. The service was impeccable and the ambience was perfect. The tables were arranged thoughtfully in a patio surrounded by lovely flowers and greenery, and illuminated by carefully strung lights that provided soft lighting. The attention to detail was like no other restaurant we have visited. We, and all the ladies in the dining area, were given a small stool upon which to place our handbags - a nice touch that we greatly appreciated. The wine list provided a map from which regions of France and California each wine came, which was also a nice touch. And at the end of the meal, my coffee arrived in a French press and delicious macarons were complimentarily provided. I can not recommend this restaurant enough. We are trying to find a way to make it back to New Hope soon just so we can dine there again.

Took my wife out for a birthday dinner. I’m slightly, but not really a food snob and typically in the Central Bucks area, restaurants are generally ok but nothing to write a review about. Zoubi is different. It really is worth the price tag. The stuffed sole entree i had was the single best entree I have had in my 14 years living in this area. The whole menu looked great and the cocktail menu is very clever. The outdoor dining area is just perfect and you really could be anywhere in the world if you didn’t know you were in New Hope, PA. Just simple and beautiful. Great spot for a first date or a nice quiet time out with the one you love. We will be back for sure!

Pleasant outdoor dining. Good wine list reasonably priced. Very attentive service. The menu was somewhat limited, however, I would prefer fresh ingredients on a limited menu than a more expansive menu without very fresh ingredients.

Returned to Zoubi after an excellent first dinner experience. All four in our party were delighted with our entrees, which included their signature crab cake, a scallop special, encrusted tuna and a pasta. Dinner was completed with several delicious and well priced desserts and French press coffee. We probably will not bother venturing into center city Philadelphia as often as usual and are planning to return to Zoubi again in a week.

Last minute reservation, but couldn’t have been better. It reminded us of island vacation dining. The food was excellent and our server (Harris) most amiable! A little pricey but worth it for “experiential dining”.

Zoubi's was more than I expected. We felt like we were eating in a little European restaurant with amazing servers. They were so attentive to our every need and made us feel so special. The food was incredible. We each ordered a different dish and each of us raved about what we were eating. I would definitely recommend Zoubi's as a wonderful dining experience.

What a hidden gem! I can't believe I've lived in the area for this long and had never dined here before!
The decor and atmosphere are perfectly quaint - the outdoor area especially is so lovely on a beautiful day. There were chances of the rain the day we went and they put us under the porch and honestly we felt like VIPS.
The staff was nothing short of exceptional and friendly. The bartender even made my husband's drink (which included smoked cedar) tableside! Talk about service!!
The food was delicious. The short rib & scallop dish was to die for and the seafood nachos are just a must.

We loved everything about this place - we will certainly be back!
