Black Bass Hotel
Very scenic and champing placeVery scenic and champing place - great outdoor dining6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest spot to dine on the riverBlack Bass is one of a few rare restaurants that have both a wonderful setting and outstanding food! First time dining on the deck outside (many equally amazing meals inside in the beautiful dining room) a truly remarkable scenic place to enjoy great food! Took a friend from Minnesota, and she is still raving about this exceptional eating experience. If the weather is good, make sure you take advantage of the outside patio!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, another greatOnce again, another great experience at the Black Bass. The Crab Cakes are really first rate. Evereything else was really good.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemThe food and service was fantastic. Can't beat the view, we sat overlooking the Delaware. Highly recommneded!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time this yearFood is imaginative without being fussy or overly complex. Everything out of kitchen is superlative.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMRiver Views and Great FoodOur first visit to Black Bass met expectations which were high because of reputation. Dined inside due to a heat wave, but the view of the Delaware River thru large picture windows was outstanding. Service was attentive, but a bit impersonal. Our fish entrees, tuna and salmon, were both outstanding. It's a bit pricey, but the perfect place for special occasions like our 43rd wedding anniversary.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful setting, outstanding foodMy wife and I took my 94 year old mother to the Black Bass for lunch on Memorial Day. Wonderful experience with scenic views of the Delaware River. Signature crab dish is delightful. Can't wait to go back.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHave dined here 4/5 timesHave dined here 4/5 times since it reopened. Felt the quality of the food just wasn't as good. Signature entre very good. Duck tasted a little old and greasy. Soups were a seafood chowder with very little seafood and sausage. Not very good. Smoked white bean soup not bad but very skimpy. Desserts were "s'mores " and a salted Carmel chocolat (can't remember exact name). Neither were very good.
My husband asked for a substitution of the starch component and was told the kitchen doesn't do substitutions.
I think management needs to reevaluate and get back to what made this restaurant great when it reopened5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Our FavoritesAfter seeing many good reviews on Open Table, we decided to come back to the Hotel for our wedding anniversary dinner. We asked to be seated outdoors, and were cheerfully accommodated. It was a warm spring evening, and despite the noise pumped out by jet boaters on the river, it was quite pleasant. After 15 minutes the boaters departed, and the ambiance settled into a quiet accented by the graceful arches and lights of the Bulls Island foot bridge and barn swallows performing aerobatics over the river. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient, and encouraged my wife when she asked if she could order items from the dinner menu and the Tavern menu. The food was excellent and the presentation charming. All in all, a memorable evening.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have been lookingMy wife and I have been looking forward to returning to the Black Bass since it re opened. We were not disappointed. The food was out of this world and well priced.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a wonderful placeThis was a wonderful place to bring my parents for a birthday lunch. They haven't been here since they re-opened and were delightly by the whole experience (as was I).5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll Continue to be Regulars!Typically we "do" lunch every two months or so on Mondays such that we can see Zoe. (She's a hoot ... great!) Always an interesting menu for "foodies"; great service (thanks in part to Zoe), and an overall delightful experience. Beautiful facility and ambience. I've recommended the Black Bass to many, and those who've dined there always thank me for the advice. Keep up the great work!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely SpotLoved having lunch with two friends at The Black Bass.

Food and service was top notch and very generous portion for restaurant week.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNoteable locationWe dined at the black bass during the New Hope restaurant week event and enjoyed the 3 course prix fix menu very much. The food was fantastic. The bar area is very charming. The restaurant was very full the night we were there and the staff seemed to be stretched a bit thin. Hoping that was not the norm. There is an outside lower level patio that overlooks the river. It's outfitted with fire pits & heaters for year round enjoyment. We plan to return when the weather gets warmer to enjoy the outside space.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDid Not DisappointI brought my wife for her birthday, a special occasion, and we were not disappointed. The meal, the service, and our waitress's wine choice was appropriate. Our son is a chef and we shared our dining experience with him. With so many restaurants as available choices, we were pleased to choose the Black Bass Hotel as our evening's choice.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, excellentGreat ambiance, excellent food and service but a bit pricey.
