“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Dined at Zoubi for first time this past weekend, lovely experience in very intimate courtyard with unobtrusive yet efficient service and menu items both interesting and well prepared. Little pricey but well worth the experience. Lump meat crab cake for one item just perfect. Best experience to date for dining in NH

“A weekend away in New Hope”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Very nice environment puts you in a bubble away from the outside world. Pleasant service. One meal was great. One a bit too dry.

“Great food in New Hope, but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Zoubi was a nice dining experience, but we dined on a rainy night so could not enjoy the beautiful patio area. The food was really nice, and beautifully plated. The arugula salad is served wrapped in a toasted bread "bowl", topped with a poached egg. Definitely one of the most beautiful presentations I've seen. Our entrees were equally as beautiful, and very well prepared. Overall ambiance is low key, although the night we dined we could overhear our neighboring table's conversation with no problem. The staff was very accommodating regarding a shellfish allergy in our group, and we are happy to report that we dined with no problems (even though the menu is about 60% shellfish!). The wine list "by the glass" was a little limited, and the beer list was very small. Dinner plates were a little pricey at about $32 a plate (the entree was ample but the "sides" were really just embellishments), but all were excellently prepared. We enjoyed the interesting menu and look forward to trying more but will save this for a "special" occasion.

“Our favorite place in New Hope”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

This restaurant is worth the drive to New Hope. Outstanding French classics prepared in the traditional way. Also a very interesting small plate tasting menu. The offer an outside eating area that is private as well as a well appointed dining room and small but well run bar. Wine list is of superior quality and varied. The French accented host and waitstaff certainly make you feel like you are near Paris at an off the road inn. Recommend the Duck above all other entrees. We've tried most of the dishes but this is the one we go back for time and time again. Pair it with the mushroom ragout and it will be subliminal.

“Fantastic setting, very good food, small portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

My wife and I live locally and visited Zoubi for the first time recently. The setting is beautiful and calm and really does transport you before a glass of water is even poured. The service was friendly and professional, without any sense of snobbery. And, the food was very good with a nice variety of offerings in both small and large plates. The only issue we had was that the "large" plates had small portions. The small plates were a nice size, but the main entree that we ordered (beef and shrimp) honestly didn't have enough food for a main course. It was tasty and well presented, we just wished there was a little bit more. The prices are on the high side and we had no problem paying more for a nice dinner, which it was. So, the only issue was the portion size of the large plates.

If you're looking for a pretty setting with solid food and a European vibe, I would say that this is a solid choice.
