It's been 2 long years since we have been to Tastebuds. We have been coming here for about 20 years and it never is a disappointing expeirence. Still early Ikea decor, new agey music, need a flash lite to read the menu, John and Rob in black, tiny bathroom (watch your head!) and it all works perfectly. No matter what... More

I have dined here a few times, each in different seasons. They change the menu and the meal is always fabulous, very carefully prepared fine food. The gentleman who I believe is the owner is always there and is super nice and accommodating. I like to go there for a date night because it is cozy and intimate but there... More

Have been here twice now. Each time, we enjoyed our experience. The menu is interesting and the service has been good (not outstanding, but fine for this venue). The food we selected was well prepared and well presented. It is an intimate dining experience to be shared partner/date or another couple. Not recommended for large groups.

This is a small BYOB restaurant on the corner of W Ferry St and Stockton Avenue. Near the tracks of the New Hope Steam Train Ride, it has a great view of the train passing by on the hour btween 11 and 6 pm or so. Gourmet cuisine is the rule.

My wife and I visit New Hope occasionally, but never noticed this small restaurant until a year ago. We heard some great recommendations by locals, so we decided to try Tastebuds (especially because it is BYOB). Our meals were outstanding! Now, we make it a point to stop here for dinner every time we visit Bucks County, and are constantly... More

We've been coming to Tastebuds for many years. Our first visit was just the two of us. We first noticed the intimate spot, attention to detail, minimalist decor and perfect flowing music. Then came the amazing food. Service by John and Rob with perfection. We've been dozens of times...by ourselves, with friends, and for private parties. Always a favorite and... More

Our waiter never said hello, goodbye, or thank you. He handed us menus never asked if we had questions and never asked how our food was. The other guy never smiled either. The appetizers were great, the entrees just good. The halibut was dry tho the sauce was good. The filet good but not great. The duck breast was different.... More

The service was surly and the little room we were in was dank and dimly lit. The fish was dry, the couscous was slimy and overall bland. The only good thing about the meal was the wine we brought and the company. Don't waste your money on this overpriced pretentious dump.

Charming little place. Great food and prices are ok for this quality of food! Give it a try. It's in a old building on the corner of Ferry St.

from beginning to end we all enjoyed one of the best dinners out that any of us has ever had. hard to make a choice cause it all sounded great, and it all was as we shared each others. the service is kind and cool, the music playing was great and the desserts were incredible. we will all be back...
