Sunday evening, cozy courtyard for 13th anniversary started off great, friendly waiter. Food tasted good, arranged nicely, good size portions & selections. Ordered appetizers, cheese plate, drinks & entrees & the service was attentive... until almost done eating entrees & all of a sudden we were invisible. Other tables got twice the service & we got none. We sat & sat & it was over 45 minutes since we finished actively eating/drinking to get our check, which is a really long time. Then when we did get the check it was a drive by drop off. We don't understand why our friendly, attentive waiter was suddenly so disinterested in us. We had ordered large amounts of food & drinks, we're foodies & were celebrating- not that anyone acknowledged it even though it was clearly written in the notes in the OpenTable reservation. Every anniversary at other restaurants was at the very least always given a 'happy anniversary'.
There's only about 9 outdoor tables, not all of them full at the same time, no one eating indoors & 3 waiters. Thank goodness for the parking app because we had to extend our time just for all of the waiting to pay. I just don't understand why it got weird & it's very upsetting to us. We spent alot of money, were friendly & interested in the food. My husband always over tips but this time wasn't warranted.

The vibe at Zoubi is Great, pleasant and professional. From the moment we arrived we felt it. We requested a particular table which was ready and waiting. The wine menu had many choices.The dinner menu is diverse and portions are generous. The flavors were amazing. We savored every bite. Beet salad, Burrata salad, crabcake, scallops special, halibut ….outstanding presentation. Thank you for such a memorable and delicious dining experience!

We had an amazing dinner at Zoubi last night. The tuna poke, grilled octopus and scallop special were delicious. We loved the romantic garden ambience and the service was very attentive but not overwhelming. Recommend the peanut butter bomb for desert too. We would definitely come back here for dinner and would recommend this place to others, particularly for a romantic evening or special occasion.

Small romantic venue with amazing secluded back patio. The food was excellent with one of the best wine lists we've seen in PA. Great service and an overall wonderful place we'll be returning to!

We have dined at Zoubi on many occasions, and will certainly return. The food is wonderfully prepared, with a keen eye to every detail. (Try the crab cake. No breading. Just crab and some vegetables.) The service is also terrific. They are always there just when you need them. I am so glad this restaurant survived the governor's lockdown orders.

After several years of wandering through the ever-changing landscape of the New Hope restaurant scene, Zoubi remains a singular standout. Every detail of this charming bistro has been thoughtfully tended to, from the lovely French country garden setting to the extensive wine list, to the specially crafted cocktails and very gracious service. Look for a pot of fresh rosemary on your marble-top bistro table, and a wall of fresh herbs perfuming the courtyard air with basil, mint and curry. The inside is equally enchanting with fabulous artwork in a romantically intimate setting. The menu has an assortment of unpretentious but elevated dishes, thoughtfully chosen appetizers and mains, prepared with the freshest local, seasonal ingredients, including French-inspired dishes that you might find at a Michelin star restaurant somewhere in Provence. The menu includes regular favorites, along with a changing assortment of specials that capitalize on the best of the season's offerings. While some of the entrees may seem pricey to some ($42 for a veal shank) the portions are large enough to share, and, given the quality of the entire experience, really worth the price. Zoubi offers the sort of memorable dining experience worth traveling for.

Zoubi has always been one of my favorites but last night left me very disappointed. Service and atmosphere were fantastic as always. The menu was much too limited and not diversified. Out of 6 choices 3 were fish ( which I don’t eat) the scalloped noodles and rib were not available due to a kitchen mishap , duck and lamb shank($48). I was forced to order the lamb which would not have been my choice although was very good. My server did offer to make my delicious shrimp appetizer into a dinner at $6 per extra shrimp but with no rice or vegetables or anything-just shrimp on a dish. Eating out should be a very special experience, especially in a restaurant like this which can be pricey. Last night was not special and left me thinking my money would have been better spent in a different restaurant . However out of fairness, the other 3 people I was with loved the fish ( they are fish eaters) so I do recommend Zoubi and hoping that when I return, the menu would have more choices for a non fish eater.

Went here for a nice romantic date night with my boyfriend and we loved it!!! The food was incredible, atmosphere was so quaint and romantic. We had our own little area that seemed so private and special. It is a little pricey but I think it is totally worth it. We got the tuna poke bowl and beet salad to start - amazing. We got the lamb ragout and encrusted ahi tuna over soba noodles. UNREAL! This was our first time in New hope and this restaurant did not disappoint. We will be back :-)

Delightful evening! We were graciously accommodated to change our dinner to a later time and the evening did not suffer by our being the last table. The decor and layout is a beautiful environment and the service was excellent but not intrusive. Food and menu was excellent and we will be back soon- worth the drive from Philly!
