Living in New Hope we have frequented Zoubis many times. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and chose Zoubis. My wifes' dinner arrived cold so I waited for them to reheat the entree. It seemed like we were rushed through dinner with our entree served before we finished the appetizer. The place was very noisy and difficult to have a conversation. This was an expensive disappointing meal, we won't be back.

My wife and i went here on Sunday night because of the great menu we saw online and based on the recommendation of our innkeeper. We chose to be seated outside and were seated within a few minutes. The outside sitting area is really neat which i'd definitely recommend, weather permitting. We shared the foie gras and an arugula salad for appetizers and had the crab cake and butterfish for our entrées. The foie gras was definitely way too much for 1 person so don't get this planning to eat it on your own. The arugula salad was definitely different with a horseradish dressing, but we enjoyed it. My crab cake was without a doubt the single best crab cake I've ever eaten and i think you'd find it hard to find a better one. The butterfish was absolutely delicious, but is so rich it's hard to eat the whole thing although the portion isn't too big. Overall i'd say the food and atmosphere of the place are top notch. While it's expensive, I feel you get what you pay for and was not disappointed. Our waitress, however, left something to be desired. I'm not sure they were understaffed, but she would often disappear for 15-20 minutes at a time and was not very personable. This is not a restaurant i'd go to if i were looking for a romantic night out, but i would definitely recommend it if you want to eat great food. We would definitely eat here again.

Went on a Friday night and sat outside. Wonderful ambience and good service. My "surf and turf"(shrimp and braised short ribs were well prepared. However, 2 shrimp(it looks like more cooked in the shell) and 2 small pieces of meat were totally inadequate. Will not be returning to Zoubi

We did not even make it into the door! We were a party of three, well dressed and in our late twenties. We walked through the alleyway that is not well marked as to where to go to enter the restaurant in the wintertime. The eldest of the owners (with the french accent) came into the same alleyway from a door to the left and asked us what we were looking for. When I said we were interested in a menu, he told us to go next door because his restaurant was "expensive for dinner." We all looked at each other then back at him, aghast, and he laughed at us! Obviously, during a recession, any money is not good enough for this elitist restaurant. They would prefer that we riffraff stay out of his already empty restaurant. Also? Upon doing research after returning home...they also own the bar next door! Thankfully, we did not take his advice, and will never return to either establishment, and advise our friends (who frequent New Hope) to do the same. Bad move, old man.
