From fresh, well and imaginatively prepared food, edgy but warm service, and a setting that could be Barbara Barry in the West Village--until you step out into the country town by the Delaware, Tastebuds is a true gem in New Hope. Add in byo wine and very fair prices, and it's no wonder we keep going back.

This was our 3rd time back to Tastebuds but just our first review - that was my mistake. There isnt much else to say except - GO! The food is delicious, expertly prepared and caringly served. The menus change often and so don't get stale, the atmosphere is wonderful for couples just out for the night or friends gathering to re-connect. It's BYOB & Cash only so I always check the menu to decide what type of wine to bring. If you go to New Hope and dont make reservations at Tastebuds you are really missing out on some of the best fine dining in the area.

Every time we have out of town guest Tastebuds is on the list of restaurants that we must visit. Wonderful fall menu! Took 7 guests last weekend, we all ordered something different and every meal was fabulous. Mother-in-law said it was the best chicken she had ever had ;)
BYOB is just another plus. Atmosphere is very cool, historic building, very tiny - reservations are nessecary during popular dinner times. Great for either a quiet, romantic night or group night out!

Cozy and intimate setting where owner was our server/host. We would have preferred that the restaurant accept credit cards. The food preparation and presentation were good but not exceptional. The owner was distracted by a party of guests who appeared to be regulars and friends.

This place is a little bit off the beaten path in New Hope, which is nice. The inside is tiny and intimate - it's divided into two rooms with about 10 tables each (reservations are a must). We really enjoyed the low-light romantic ambiance, and the owner/host/waiter was very nice. The food was decent - I'd say good but not fantastic. The prices were reasonable for what you get (better portions than a lot of other upscale places). One thing I haven't seen in other reviews - Tastebuds is cash only, so be prepared. It's also BYOB. I don't think this will become one of our most-frequented spots in town, but it was a nice change from the usual and we might go back for another special occasion.
