Had lunch with my husband on a Saturday afternoon. I ordered the fish tacos, and he had the smoked salmon sandwich. Both were excellent and portions were large. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed a Sunday Brunch at Karla's: Eggs Benedict, French Toast w/ Bananas Foster, Bloody Marys. Great food and drinks, enjoyed by the two of us. Prices were a little high, but probably on par with New Hope restaurants. The building needs some updating - not exactly a place to go for a high-end "date night" dinner, but good for eating...

We came to New Hope to spent in such a nice day and this restaurant we picked by reviews. We weren't disappointed. Fresh food well made delisious food. We took French onion soup, Calamari and hot wings. Calamari had unusual hot sauce, instead of traditional marinara. French onion was made just perfect. Love and highly recommend for lunch!

Karla's has been a fixture in New a Hope since the 1970's. Good solid food and drink and good cheer is how they do it. I had my 40th birthday dinner here and I still enjoy the food and the atmosphere at Karla's over twenty years later!

Good lunch meal. I had tilapia taco. It was listed on the menu as blackened. I asked the waiter if I could get it not spicy.. It came out tasty and delicious. The service was attentive and prices were good.

This restaurant is New Orleans style decor. Stained glass, large wicker chairs and colorful walls with vintage chandeliers. Cool and hip upstairs bar. Great views of the village along with daily live music, guitarist. Quality food that is not bar food. Healthy and delicious! Best breakfast place in town hands down! Perfect place for relaxing Sunday breakfast to take it... More

Picked this restaurant because of it's proximity to the Playhouse. It was fabulous. The service was awesome and the food and drinks off the charts. It did take a little while for our meals to arrive but they advertise fresh food, so didn't mind the wait. Waiter remembered that we were going to a show at a specific time, and... More

Outstanding crab cake sandwich. Great decor with a rustic look. Floors are uneven and it is cold by the windows in the winter.

Well located on the corner of Main and Mechanic Street, we stopped by Karla's for a quick lunch. The outer room is pretty with doors opening out onto the street but the inner room could do with a makeover as it was tired looking. Sadly though the food was good, it took an inordinately long time to serve us an... More
