Amazing dinner!! Service was top notch, food and cocktails were perfect. I highly highly recommend the baked oysters (with a squeeze of caramelized lemon) and the blood orange martini. Yes it's a bit pricey but it's great for a date night.

I can’t believe this was my first time at Zoubi! This place is a hidden gem in new hope, the decor is so unique and beautiful , the staff were proficient, kind and professional. Every dish was awesome- we had the cheese board-yum, the smoked seafood pasta which was our favorite, the seafood nachos and also the crab cake- everything was great! The wine and cocktail list was extensive. Loved it and will absolutely be back!

Warm & Welcoming. The owner was actively engaging with the customers. The food was outstanding and the portions were generous. It has a romantic vibe. Our table wasn't quite ready when we got there so the owner gave us champagne. Lovely touch. We are looking forward to going back when the outdoor space is open in the spring.

This was our first visit to Zoubi and we will be back! Food was unique and delicious! I had the crab cake and it was an enormous crab cake with large chunks of crab with delicious flavor. My friends had the “scallop” noodles with short rib, phenomenal! Other friend couldn’t stop talking about the lamb with the lentil side dish - he doesn’t even like lentils but said prepared this way, delicious! My husband had the lobster crab stuffed sole and was very pleased with his selection. The macaroons were a perfect ending to our meal!

Zoubi is one of my favorite spots in New Hope. It checks off all the boxes- extensive wine list, creative cocktail menu, expertly crafted dinner menu, excellent service in a beautiful setting. Don't miss this little gem. Not inexpensive, but on point for the location and the level of cuisine and European style service. The back patio is so charming, you'll feel like you stumbled into a little gem in some remote French village. Laurent is a wonderful server--he is very knowledgeable and will be sure to guide you through an exceptional dining experience. Menu highlights include the beef tartar served in a bone marrow "canoe", and the Dijon and Panko Crusted Rack of Lamb is not to be missed. If you're just looking for a nice glass of wine and a snack, the cheese board is beautiful. Zoubi is one of the few places that actually gets it right. Love this place.

My husband and I absolutely loved our meal from beginning to end. The Asian salad was so fresh and delicious. The cheese board was absolute melt in your mouth perfection. My husband’s short ribs were cooked to perfection. I had the crab cake accompanied with chorizo and corn. It was just amazing!!! Everything was just bursting with amazing flavor. Zoubi takes dining to the next level!!! It doesn’t get better than this!!! Last but not least the service was super,,, attentive but not overbearing. We can’t wait to go back

As always great food. Busy night and we had a large group. Manager in a loud abrupt voice asked us to make table available to next group. A simple tap on the shoulder a few minutes notice would have been more appropriate.

Not sure who is at fault, Zoubi's or Open Table, but THE RESTAURANT WAS NOT OPENED , it was closed own for a few weeks between New Years and Valentine's but Open Table still allowed us to make a booking. Dumb.

Zoubi was actually CLOSED and had been since New Years! We were very disappointed and frustrated. Why was it still possible to make a reservation at Zoubi on OpenTable when the restaurant was closed!

Entered into a beautiful back patio area. Unfortunately it was winter and a rainy night so we sat inside. Would be lovely to sit outside during the summer. The owner was there and the waiter was nice. Food was great, ambiance was superb. Small dining area so the noise level was minimal. Extensive wine list for such a small restaurant and lovely cocktails for just $14. When we were first sat at the reserved table it was right by the door and there was a draft so we asked to change tables. The owner was willing to accommodate this change and the other table was much nicer and warmer. Fresh rosemary focaccia was delicious and the truffle butter was a great touch. All our food was awesome. Seems the restaurant has a group of patrons who frequent the place, which is another good sign.

Made reservation but when I arrived the place looked closed. I tried calling and got no answer. The place was closed. The time before I tried calling to inform that we'd be arriving a little late since we couldn't find parking and got no answer. We arrived 10 minutes late and were turned down. Won't be trying again.

Zoubi is by far one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere in winter or summer is amazing, the service is great with very knowledgable and engaging staff, and the menu offers a variety of spectacular food (especially the seafood). The place is a gem that we have been so lucky to find and happily make the hour drive to savor a great night.

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.)
