Our waiter, Aaron warned me that the habanero and mango chicken wings were very hot. I'm a hot head so I was ready for the challenge. Wow....I met my match. The best!!! My main course was a burger topped with tender beef brisket and a fried egg. Perfect combination of flavors.

It's called the Locals Night. For $12- 19 you get your choice of six or so different entrees (he had flank steak and I had a pork chop each $14) plus either soup or salad and a dessert. The steak served with good pink peppercorn sauce. Both came with mashed potatoes and a mound of julienned zucchini. The cheapest entree... More

We were drifting through New Hope on Labor Day and lucky for us that Karla's had their Monday night locals menu out. We normally dine at another restaurant which seemed to have a substantial price increase recently so we just happened into this situation. Service was excellent and food was outstanding. Started with hummus which was really good (I make... More

My husband and I were looking to eat a late lunch / early dinner. It was a bit past 4PM, and our usual place was not seating anyone between 4-5PM, so they could switch over to their dinner menu. Although disappointed, we found Karla's restaurant, and I am extremely happy we did not get seated at the other restaurant. We... More

This little place was amazing. We had a seat outside and ordered the best drinks ever. Deliciously made from fresh fruits they are easy to drink, but be warned: they are strong. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. But the drinks topped everything.

6 of us had a very good dinner at Karla's early evening on a busy Saturday. No easy feat but Cynthia, our server, is a pro. Delicious Martinis (fresh fruit concoctions) are strong, and highly recommended. There is no parking on W Mechanic Street, so be prepared. Luckily we just walked over from our Wedgwood b&b Inn.

Outstanding meal and service and an outdoorsy yet inside setting. Love... More

If you go, expect to get a rusty limp salad, cranky horrible bartender, small portions, and your meal the next day. The check will come before your meal. A quote from the bartender, "The kitchen is very cranky tonight, so I won't taking a special orders". Humm, since when is a rusty salad a special order?

Karla's is a lovely little restaurant conveniently located near the Bucks County Playhouse. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. It was a beautiful evening and our table was open to the outside. Our server was adorable and very helpful. She took the drink orders right away. Soon, some bread arrived with a small bowl of olive oil. The... More
