Went for lunch and it was ok

Arrived on a Sunday for lunch with my wife. The parking lot was completely full so I thought this place must be great. I knew it was a gay bar but heard the food was good so we gave it a shot. There was only a handful of people in the restaurant. The pool area however had about 100 men... read more

Perfect to downtown New Hope. The Raven has a very friendly bar and staff. Make sure you have a drink at the bar, they are extremely strong. After a few drinks, check out the piano bar. Very enjoyable before dinner. A great place for a day or a long weekend!!

Part of a gay motel located at the edge of New Hope, the restaurant attracts a wide variety of patrons seeking fine dining. Ample free parking onsite too.

Friends and I have been here in the past - even since the total redo - and it was quite good. Returned tonight for Restaurant Week, and what a total disappointment. First course was actually quite good, but 2 of the entrees were "meh" at best, and I have to say that my pork tenderloin was just plain "ugh". Dry,... More

Marty was the bartender today. What a great one. Lots of personality. Very engaging. Definitely knows his way around the bar. The food was excellent.

This restaurant recently underwent a renovation. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and ambience. The food was outrageously good. My daughter had the empanada special and I had one of the best arugula and pear salads I have ever eaten. The offer both dinner size portions and small plates. I loved the eggplant napoleon small plate and my daughter devoured... More

A once unique and intriguing dining experience turned into a lighter fare bistro. Albeit well decorated, we returned hoping for that same experience of a beautiful romantic evening. We sure miss it. Servers and staff were very friendly. Food was above average and fairly priced. Overall, a pretty good time.

We used to enjoy the food at the Raven, especially the brunches. The past few years, though, have been disappointing. The newly renovated restaurant with its new menu is well worth getting reacquainted with the Raven. We had a wonderful meal and time. Jack, our server, was personable and able to adjust to the varied humor and culinary tastes of... More

Have been going to the Raven since 1983, Through the years, like many places , it continues to evolve.

This is for one month so they can renovate. The... More
