This was our first visit to Karla's but won't be our last. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We started with calamari and quesadillas followed by thai chicken salad and pork sandwich. All food was tasty and served at appropriate temperature. Priced accordingly as well. We will definitely be back!

Karla's is at the corner of S Main St and Mechanic Street in bustling New Hope, PA. we walked over from Wedgwood Inn to this delightful small restaurant on a Monday night on the recommendation of Innkeeper Dinie. Not only was there live music, but the "Locals Menu" (3 courses for $16.00) was delicious! And Diniewas right again: the bar... More

I've always wanted to try to this unique spot in new hope. Stopped in for lunch with my husband. I ordered a salad and he ordered a sandwich it took 30+ minutes for our food to come out and there were only 2 other tables in the restaurant. His sandwich was good, however my salad was a huge disappointment. It... More

We ate in the bar area. I liked the funky vibe. I had the best salad I ever had - the poached pear salad. Service was a bit slow - they seemed slammed in the kitchens and not enough wait staff that night.

Take your pick. Ricky's Lemondrop, Watermelon, Passion Fruit, Mango, or my favorite, Blood Orange - hands down the best fresh fruit martinis you will find in New Hope. An absolute must stop. Served by the colorful Ricky the bartender.

If you are looking for a place that even the Locals like, I'd check out Karla's. We live in the area and find ourselves coming here more than other restaurants in New Hope. It's great spot to bring visiting friends and relatives for good food, great drinks and a cool atmosphere. Be aware that even though the service here is... More

We had came across Karla's while walking around New Hope on Saturday evening. We had a 20 minute wait, which we were absolutely okay with, considering we had no reservations. Upon being seated, it took at least 20 minutes before we had drinks and only about 15 minutes longer for our appetizers. We had the calamari and fried pickles, both... More

We went to New Hope to eat at a different establishment, however, that place was closed. We happened across Karla's and they had availability for us to sit outside. The weather was perfect and the outdoor seating was lovely, over looking the main drag. I ordered a martini. One of the best I've ever had. They do not skimp on... More

What a fun place to drink and be merry. Mondays are prix fix dinners. Treat yourself to the yummy fried chicken and mac-n-cheese. It was good but a real artery clogger and not what you would eat more than once a year. The bartender is a blast, terrific personality but a bit crude if you don't know him.
