One of the best kept secrets in New Hope!
The atmosphere and service was impeccable. If the weather is nice and you can get out for a lovely dinner, I'd urge you to escape to this charming oasis.
The outside dining will transport you to a small bistro in Europe
First time a Zoubi and we went for a special occasion. The food was outstanding! I had the braised short rib, my husband had the tuna. We also had the cheese board for an appetizer and the cheesecake and pecan tart were outstanding as well. It's a shame I live a little far, it would definitely be on my go to list.
Kudos to the chef and sommelier for an amazing meal from beginning to end! The oysters, crab cake , ahi tuna on Dona noodles and peanut butter decadence were all spot on. Great experience!
Simple put Zoubi was a great place. From the service to the food it was one of the best restaurants we've been to. Highly recommend Zoubi.
This is our second visit to Zoubi, our first was good ... this visit was fantastic.
First, this visit was on a Thursday night, so we had the restaurant to ourselves ... it was very quiet ... on weekends, the sound level is much louder. Our waiter, a french gentleman, was nothing less than perfect in all respects. He made the evening even better with his good humor and outstanding service. It's actually wonderful to watch a great server do his/her work ... he provided classy service all night with good chatter and very welcome silliness.
We had excellent manhattans to drink and the server recommended a very nice wine for my wife.
For appetizers, we had brussel sprouts and the apple salad. Both were fresh and wonderful ... I had the sprouts and they were fantastic ... the apple salad was quite special. For main courses, we had encrusted pork chops, sesame tuna and the barramundi. Our parents are quite picky and they loved their barramundi and pork chop ... they were wow'd by them actually. My wife had the sesame tuna and loved it. I had the pork chop as well ... it was encrusted with peppercorns and mustard seeds ... I was prepared for either or both to overpower the chop, but it was just a perfect compliment. When we finished our meal we asked the server to send our thanks to the chef ... she certainly deserved it because we had a wonderful meal.
We will return for a third time!
Really a great restaurant. Excellent food and great ambiance. Order the crab cake, it was prepared the traditional way with no fillers - so was gluten free!
The dinner was excellent, I had baked oysters and shrimp with a fresh and bright salad. One of my best meals in New Hope!
Great service and wonderful food- say no more!
Omg! I rarely take time to write reviews however in this case I just had to respond.
The food here was outrageous Not sure who their executive chef is but they are over achieving. My wife had their crab cake dish which we were told to go there just for that, I had the short rib. No exaggeration I never used a knife on that meat.
Go. You won't be disappointed
We were a party of six and had a great evening. Cocktails, food and service were exceptional. Great appetizers we shared (brussels sprouts with honey glaze, cheese board and a tuna poke which was the best most of us had ever had). Entrees were also exceptional - pork chop, crab cake, sesame tuna....couldn't ask for anything more from start to finish.
We went for a Birthday Dinner and it was sweet, intimate and felt very European. Our waiter Tom was wonderful. The martinis were great. We had the carpaccio appetizer which was amazing. My MonkFish was okay .... a little dry but Michael’s Tuna was amazing.
I can’t wait to go back in the warmer months and sit on the patio which looks like The Secret Garden!
We highly recommend!
The food was delicious. The ambiance was cozy. I had the tuna sesame with the soba noodles and I pretty much inhaled it. I also had a winter salad inhaled that too. We shared a few appetizers and all was made well. (Oysters, Brussel sprouts, tuna salad..)
If I had to list a con: Bread wasn't really that good (I am from NY - we are a bit snobby with bread), and the desserts were just a bit over okay. (we shared a few desserts: my cheese cake was a bit on a sour side , and the almond cake tasted a bit almond pasty - however I still ate (all) trying to decide if I loved it or not - But overall I thought the place was great. A must go!
Situated in a victorian with a beautiful bar in the heart of new hope. The service was very attentive, and the food was delicious. I am gluten free and they modified the entrees with no problems. You can order spwcialky made cocktails as it has a full seevice bar.
Great service! The waiter helped me choose gluten free, and brought me some GF crisp bread. So kind. Excellent food.
Great experience. Fun waitstaff and good food. A bit pricey for the value but would go back again.
Our Server Laurent (Seppling?) was and is Fabulous! We are fellow New Hope Business Owners. Our Customers ask us where to eat-Que Nous Leur Envoyons a' Vous Chaque Fois.
My Friend Jennine owns "Sev & Co." at 19A West Bridge and I own "Mentality Consignment" at 16 West Bridge Street. We'll see you again soon XOX
Had a great dinner! The Killer Bee had just the right kick, really enjoyed the Fish Trio and the Halibut!
Wasn't impressed with entree options. Food good but not great for the price.
Perfect after theater spot for a romantic birthday dinner!
Zoubi is one of our favorite restaurants; the food, drinks, service and ambiance are outstanding! We also always enjoy the special attention of the house manager, Laurent, who is most accommodating and charming. All in all, an excellent dining experience!
Everything our party of four had was delicious and beautifully presented. We will definitely be back!
Zoubi provided incredible service and perfectly curated meals! We came with a group of 10 friends from Manhattan and every individual left satisfied. Not an easy feat! Thanks Zoubi. We will return!
My wife and I had dinner here on a weekend getaway a couple of years ago. We had a great experience, so we decided to try it again. Zoubi did not disappoint! If anything, our dining experience was even better this time. Dishes were interesting and prepared well, service was attentive without being intrusive, and the ambience was, well, Zoubi- eclectic and charming. If you’re driving there on a weekend, make sure you allow time to find parking.
One of the best in New Hope. Our food was excellent. Pork Chop, Crab Cake, chowder soup, Seared Tuna.
Service was excellent. Sitting out on the patio with friends on a October evening was perfect.
Wonderful dinner -- excellent and creative preparation, gorgeous presentation. Delightful service. A very special place.
Booked for anniversary dinner 7:45 pm Saturday. Got there early just in case. Waited for patio sitting till 8:30 when I approached ball headed jerk waiter who said we would have the very next table. A few moments later we found out our promised table was given away to another couple who were hanging by the bar and talking to him, probably gave him some money. In any case upon complaining, bald waiter rudely offered to sit us inside. I have requested patio sitting since the patio is the only thing good about that place. We been here once before knowing that service it's a bit slow, however, the way this bald headed jerk treated us was unprofessional and rude. We ended up walking over to another place. We just hoped to have known that reservations in this place are worthless. Don't waste your time going unless you are expecting to pay this guy off or maybe get lucky on a quiet night. As for us, I will recommend to every one I meet not to ever go there. Saty AWAY from bald headed jerk waiter. Thanks a lot for wasting our time.
Great atmosphere. ...really unique. The outdoor dining was beautiful. Food was delicious , but menu was a little limited. I would have liked some more small plate choices for sharing. ....but overall a very nice dining experience.
This was our first visit to Zoubi and we will definitely be back. It was a little chilly to sit outside but it looks great out back. But we were not disappointed inside. It is a very old building but the owner did a great job with the interior. It is intimate as there are not many tables. The food was wonderful - flavorful but not overwhelming. Portion size was just right so you could finish your meal and not feel stuffed. Corn chowder was excellent - as was my husband's burger. I had the cod special of the night and it was delicious. Also, the lobster roll was very good. We had the pleasure of being served by the owner who was just as charming as his restaurant!
The food was amazingly delicious! I got the cod which was the special of the day and my husband got the Tuna. Instead of getting a salad we both ordered the corn crab chowder...sooo good. The service was excellent. Our waiter was a gem, so attentive and we were never rushed. The atmosphere was quiet, cozy with soft music and lighting. I look forward to going back soon!
The food and ambiance were great. The service was lacking. Our server seemed unsure of herself and forgot what we ordered. There was also a misunderstanding about $1 raw oysters only being available at the bar. My husband ordered 12 oysters as his appetizer thinking we would be paying $12 for them. The total for the oysters alone was close to $40! A more knowledgeable server would be sure to clarify that if you're ordering oysters at the table, they're more than $3/oyster.
Wonderful experience. Everything was delicious. We didn't even need a main entree. Salads and appetizer and a cheese plate to finish the meal. Great service and ambiance. We will be back.
Lovely outdoor dining option in New Hope, right across the street from the Bucks County Playhouse. Somewhat limited menu and only a handful of very pedestrian beers prevented me from giving Zoubi's 5 stars overall.
My friend and I dined here to celebrate my birthday on a beautiful evening. The service was outstanding from beginning to end. You couldn't ask for a more enchanting place to enjoy a superb meal. The tuna poke was perfectly seasoned, the halibut with grapefruit brulee and fava bean puree was heavenly, and the bistro steak was delicious. The wine list offered excellent selections, which paired well with the type of cuisine offered here. If you are like me and always in search of a delicious dessert to end the meal, you will not be disappointed here, and if you pair it with a sweet Vermouth, you may never want to leave!
Prettiest outdoor dining in new hope with excellent attentive staff from the maître d' and everyone else there after
The food and service was superior. My husband and I enjoyed the food and drinks. Will definitely go back on our next trip to New Hope, PA.
Had a great meal, service and food were great as always.
Went to Zoubi's a few weeks ago without reservations and couldn't get in. So we returned and had a very nice meal. I had a peach gazpacho which was excellent. My wife had the strawberry salad that she loved. I had the veal Osso buco over a polenta cake; also very good but I could have used a slightly larger portion. (I like large portions.). We sat outside and we could have been sitting in a bistro in Tuscany or Provence. A great setting. Our server, Jackie, was outstanding; very friendly and informative. We will definitely return.
Great service beautiful outdoor area
The food was correct but the service was excruciatingly slow (more than 35 minutes between appetizer and main dish).
After waiting for it for such along time the main dish was served cold.
I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.
