About Us

Welcome to Tastebuds!

Celebrating 25 Years of bringing a unique fine dining experience to Greater New Hope-Lambertville area


Contemporary and Simply Delicious Food in a Modern Setting


Serving lunch Saturday and Sunday and dinner Tuesday through Sunday, we strive to offer the best dining experience in New Hope, PA. We’re BYOB, so bring your favorite wine to pair with our carefully prepared entrees. We offer convenient free parking, a rarity in New Hope Borough.


Our menu is seasonal and New American using unique ingredients, imagination and flair. Our interior is updated and comfortable with modern decor. We want to be a respite from your busy day. 


Nearly every dish we prepare introduces a new idea and adds a little something extra. In every way, we love sharing our passion for fresh, local ingredients and innovative preparations. We also love to have fun. Every week, our Tuesday neighbors’ night offers a three-course prix-fixe dinner for $25 per person.


Imaginative Entrées with Eclectic Seasonings and Deliciously Creative Sauces.


Vibrant, clear flavors and the freshest locally sourced ingredients help make us a restaurant all about enjoying the finer things in life. Renowned for one of the best filets in the New Hope-Lambertville area, our dinner menu is wide ranging. All fish and seafood are caught in the wild. Chops of veal, lamb and pork are farm-to-table from trusted local sources. Poultry is free-range and from nearby farmers. Produce and grains, often organic, are selected seasonally.


No matter what you order, we want to share with you a glorious, contemporary version of fine dining. The Tastebuds kitchen is continuously exploring new ingredients and flavor profiles. Our newer dishes build on tastes our customers have loved already. Many are conversation starters that everyone at your table may want to taste. Our recipes are memorable for their unconventional combinations.


Sensational Appetizers and Desserts

A Perfect Before-and-After Makes Your Meal Unforgettable


While great care and attention to detail goes into the preparation of every lunch and dinner entrée, a strong emphasis also is placed on appetizers, soups, salads and desserts. To us, these add-ons to your meal can exponentially improve your overall dining experience. Unconventional spices, modernized recipes and flavors from all over the world go into everything on our menu. We want to take everything you already like and reimagine it, so you love it even more. 


We also often introduce entirely new ideas and rediscover the potential of classic ingredients. Our chefs frequently put them in the spotlight in one-of-a-kind signature dishes. Many of our appetizers easily can be paired with soups and salads to create your own small-plates tasting. Our mouthwatering desserts, all prepared fresh in-house, have been a smash-hit since day one. We continuously update the selection each season.


One of the Best Spots in the Area for a Great Lunch

Tasty Modern Classics are on the Menu


Our lunch menu is an homage to New American classics. It features a chef’s selection of simple but exceptional salads, soups, sandwiches, a daily quiche, quesadillas and the most delicious burger in New Hope. Stop in for your next business lunch or treat-someone-special occasion. We also love to host groups of friends from the office for birthday or holiday luncheons. Reservations are encouraged for larger groups. Lunch is served Saturday and Sunday.


With casual flair and the freshest ingredients, we offer a great opportunity to step back and enjoy a well-prepared mid-day meal. Service is prompt if you need to be in/out quickly and our entire menu is available for telephone order take-out. Free and ample parking makes it uncomplicated to stop in. Better yet, we are located on the New Hope-Solebury border and just a couple of minutes from most residential and business locations in the area.


We take pride in being one of the leading fine dining restaurants in the New Hope and Lambertville area. Never resting on our laurels, we work hard to earn five-star reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor and love it when our customers share their experiences on Facebook and Instagram. We’re a part of the local community and we take the time to know our neighbors, mostly by first name.


Since our beginnings in 1993, we have been dedicated to the flavors and cooking style that define today’s modern palette. We want eating to be fun, interesting, enjoyable and delicious. Details and atmosphere are important to us and we strive to make everything about your meals with us relaxing and memorable. Some of these things might sound simple, but when combined in just the right way, they can take fine dining to a whole new level. We hope you will stop in and let us show you today.
