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...

We had dinner at this intimate, romantic spot last night. The menu is seasonal, reasonably creative, and well prepared. Not quite "wow!", but the prices and portions are fair, and several cuts above most of the New Hope tourist trade. As a BYOB, this place is a good value. Service, however, was lacking. Pleasant enough, but inattentive. I hope it... More

From fresh, well and imaginatively prepared food, edgy but warm service, and a setting that could be Barbara Barry in the West Village--until you step out into the country town by the Delaware, Tastebuds is a true gem in New Hope. Add in byo wine and very fair prices, and it's no wonder we keep going back.

This was our 3rd time back to Tastebuds but just our first review - that was my mistake. There isnt much else to say except - GO! The food is delicious, expertly prepared and caringly served. The menus change often and so don't get stale, the atmosphere is wonderful for couples just out for the night or friends gathering to... More

Every time we have out of town guest Tastebuds is on the list of restaurants that we must visit. Wonderful fall menu! Took 7 guests last weekend, we all ordered something different and every meal was fabulous. Mother-in-law said it was the best chicken she had ever had ;) BYOB is just another plus. Atmosphere is very cool, historic building,... More

Cozy and intimate setting where owner was our server/host. We would have preferred that the restaurant accept credit cards. The food preparation and presentation were good but not exceptional. The owner was distracted by a party of guests who appeared to be regulars and friends.

This place is a little bit off the beaten path in New Hope, which is nice. The inside is tiny and intimate - it's divided into two rooms with about 10 tables each (reservations are a must). We really enjoyed the low-light romantic ambiance, and the owner/host/waiter was very nice. The food was decent - I'd say good but not... More

I've always wanted to try "Tastebuds" & finally, last night, we did. There was only one server, but, he was excellent. Our appetizers, salads & dessert were VERY good. Our entrees were not. I had a veal dish. It was nothing special. I could have made it at home. My hubby had the snapper. The fish was not fresh. Overall,... More

John the owner is a doll. Chic yet relaxed atmosphere, we had dishes ranging from scallops to steak and all were fantastic. The spices, presentaiton and quality of food was outstanding! We already have two more nights reserved for this summer!

A favorite since an inn keeper told us about this place. The food is wonderful and creative that at times I wonder how they thought of the combinations but trust that it will work. It always does! Small, personal resturant with great serive. Once of our go-to places to eat in New Hope.
