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.

$58 with tip for excellent brunch for two. Historic home open to the porch. Fans and plants everywhere! Great ambiance, excellent experiences servers, delicious food. Try the Thai chicken salad--fantastic and different and great presentation. Spinach sun dried tomato and ricotta cheese omelet excellent and wonderful grilled red potatoes. 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

I came here with my boyfriend on a Saturday night for dinner. No reservation. The place had a quirky vibe (very New Hope). We had a great table outside on the porch/patio near the street. It was a perfect location. The server was great. Knowledgeable and gave good suggestions and honest opinions. I started with some kind of Gin and... More

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
