Being a local I want to like Karla’s but the staff is horrific. This winter after the Playhouse we went here and specifically asked if the kitchen was still open, we were told “yes”. We sat down and the waitress took our drink order. She...More

We thought we were entering another restaurant, but walked into Karla's. Good choice! Shared appetizers - tuna tartare tacos, mac&cheese, and hummus. All were delish. Highly recommend.

Dropped in here to warm up during the Christmas holidays. We didn't eat but the sights and smells of the surrounding patrons food was amazing. Nice stiff drinks on a cold December afternoon. Tight spaces and typical New Hope quirkiness and to the charm.

Fun, quaint atmosphere. A favorite. The food was great with a good variety of apps, small plates and entrees. The bar and cocktails are a must for a casual, fun get together. The staff and bartenders exceptional.
