Awesome restaurant for couples and friends getting together. The duck was delicious! My husband got the mahimahi and said it was excellent. Very great BYOB with a relaxed atmosphere.

Owner and chef cooks up new menu's quite often. all foods fresh daily. If you want a dining experience that is quaint, yet modern, attention to detail yet relaxed, this is your place. food tremendous. only draw back the restaurant is housed in an old house, this is not the problem but the lack of adequate air conditioning on hot...

We came here on Sunday night, seating was no problem. We only had main course here. I ordered duck, it was delicious. My boyfriend ordered cheese ravioli which was too sweet. I let him eat half of my duck and I tried his dish but it really wasn't pleasant. I thought it was odd we could see the waiter working... More

My wife and I have been going to tastebuds for years. we live pretty close, so the trip is worth it every time! I can honestly say that, if you can get a reservation, you won't be disappointed. I NEVER have had a bad meal there. In fact, the cuisine is so uniquely done, that each meal is a thrill!

Never fails, every meal at Tastebuds has left us feeling like it was worth every penny. We have been patrons of this wonderful little restaurant for over 10 years, and we find it almost impossible to go anywhere else when we are wanting a truly delicious meal. The seasonal menus are so thoughtfully put together. Tonight for our appetizer, we... More

Not Recommended - Cash only, pretentious attitude, poor service and terrible food sums it up. Not sure what other diners had but I apparently had the best thing on the menu (pork chop) and it was one of the most over-cooked, and tasteless meals I've ever had. There are better places to try in New Hope and Lambertville.

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.
