“Just did drinks, fun atmosphere and great cocktails.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

We just stopped here a couple of times for cocktails and once sat outside. Cute place, lots of fun and great drinks. We didn't eat, but I was watching those who did and the food looked good. I would definitely go here again.

“Great Cocktails, Stellar Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

My friend and I tried drink specials: blood orange martini and a cider version. We didn't stop at one. Two a piece, we dared! We both tried the soups--french onion and the beef chilli. The garlic Gorgonzola bread was quite nice and accompanied with a quinoa dish. Splitting 5 appetizers enabled us to try the things the appealed most to us. It was the first of November, and we were able to sit outside. Lovely evening, delightful dishes, and friendly service.

“Great drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

I come here for brunch or drinks in the summer. Its adorable and they by far make the best mixed drinks in new hope. The service is sometimes hit or miss but after one gin martini its hard to care.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Having been to New Hope on many occasions, this place seems to get overlooked, but don't sleep on it...the food is Delicious! The space is tight and probably not ideal for a restaurant but done well enough that they manage to pack in quite a few people in there. The service isn't amazing but done well enough to get you back in.
In all go here and eat some yummy food.

“We will come back, but...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

This was an interesting one. We got tickets to see a play across the street and had a bit over an hour to kill, so we figured we would give the restaurant a try. The goal was to have apps and a couple of drinks, and then get to the show. We ended up adding soup to the mix - I got French Onion and my wife ordered pulled pork chili, which was new to the menu. Oh, and drinks!
We also ordered the Gorgonzola cheese bread and calamari as the apps.
The soup came in about 10 minutes. The pork one looked great and mine did not look anything like onion soup. No clue what it was, but it was taken away and the onion soup was then brought to the table after another 5 minutes.
The pork soup was really good - it came with some chips and they really are what made the dish. The Onion soup was pretty good, but nothing special, but I am also on a quest to find the best French Onion Soup. This wasn't it.
The apps took a really long time to come to the table. They were really good(!), but break and calamari should not take that long.
As others said, the service is slow. It was painful to get the waiter to come to the table to order drinks, so I requested the bill early. We barely made it to the theater on time. God only knows what would have happened if we ordered a meal.
With that said, we will come back. I will just make sure that we do not have any deadlines.
