PLEASE PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW...

So, I gave this review four stars not to deceive you but rather to have the opportunity to give you a heads up. I definitely believe in the adage "you can't please everyone", so I'm sure some of what I have to report will be taken with a grain of salt. I have never written a review, but my... read more

We have been to Tastebuds twice in the past month or so. Great atmosphere - small intimate rooms. The service is very attentive and the food is delicious. Be sure to remember that it is BYOB and cash only.

Omg!!! The food here is so good! It's tiny with dim lighting. Inside is rustic chic. The guys who run it are super nice and funny, and the food is amazing!!!!!!! It's a must if you're in New Hope! Make sure to bring wine though! It's a BYOB!

The food was very good and the service also. The restaurant needs some updating as it is a little dull.

Ate here with four people, the food has highs and lows with great duck and terrible dry halibut. Scallops were good but the cilantro leaf wasn't washed properly and I got a lot of grit. The chicken was moist and flavorful. Salad good but a very very small serve for the price. The bread was hot and fresh but looked... More

We had a wonderful pea and Brie soup, mango and goat cheese salad. For entrée the duck and cherries were great. Only one waiter who did his best to keep up. Must bring wine or drink water. Napkins smelled funky and chairs were really uncomfortable.

Was not super crowded over Memorial Day weekend. Delicious food, BYOB and cash only. Service was good but not overly friendly. Some parts of the building are from the 1700's and some from the 1800's. Was happy to try after many years of passing it by and would go back again.

This gourmet BYOB place is a hidden gem on W Ferry Street. Always a selection of 6 or more apps and entrees too. No parking lot here tho. We kept our car at Umpleby House Hotel and walked over to this restaurant.

Recently visited New Hope with my wife and we found this gem. They just seem to get "it". Room was perfectly lit(dark) with ambient music in the background. Service was cordial and attentive. We had a super fresh/lively ceaser salad, and then shared the halibut and duck. Food was executed perfectly!! Our host then brought us a complimentary caramel/chocolate/coffee flan... More
