I think our order, from what I can remember, will outline the diverse nature of their well-executed menu: Calamari App: nicely done sriracha aioli, lightly battered plump calamari; just enough salt. Baked Brie App: with shaved almonds & warm honey…no need for the puff pastry that one usually finds. Poached Pear Salad: Ordered as an entrée, they accommodated with a... More

Stopped in late Monday afternoon just for a cocktail and appetizer at the bar and decided to stay for dinner. Service was excellent. Had the locals Monday dinner which was very good and generous portions. The bartender was terrific and drinks very tasty!!!! Will definitely be back. We were here once before in Warmer weather just for drinks with friends.... More

This is a funky little eatery in the lovely town of New Hope...unfortunately, the service is indifferent and the food is pretty unimaginative, and a bit pricey to boot. We won't be going back.

Karla's is just off the main street in New Hope, in an old structure that looks well used. The food and service is excellent: I haven't had as good a Cuban sandwich in years. Prices aren't low-end but the food is worth the price. Only disappointment was the $10 price for wine by the glass.

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.
