We went for a very enjoyable Valentines Day lunch. The food and cocktails were very good. The staff was friendly, efficient and in the background allowing us to enjoy the food and each others company.
The meal was followed by a leisurely walk across the Delaware on the Bull Island pedestrian bridge. The perfect end to a perfect afternoon.

Second best short ribs I've had in my life (I'm 76)...A wonderful well-appointed historic spot which does NOT sport a large-screen television blaring soccer games. Beautiful people, beautiful scenery inside and out (the towpath runs right by the windows. A memorable night. Jeff Inskeep-Fox

second visit, even better than first, which was outstanding. helpful staff, excellent food, great building and view. there just isn't a down side, the only thing that is even the slightest bit of issue, is the pricing is maybe a touch above comparable locations, but definitely not a deal breaker. there is really no complaint from our visits, and we will certainly return, and have referred to friends many times.

We have been here several times and it is usually good but this last time was very disappointing. I got the lobster special for 52$. There was barely any lobster in it and it was overcooked and chewy. We sent it back and they did take it off the bill.

The beef filet is superior - excellent flavor and texture-- and is cooked medium rare as ordered. The fish special (barramundi/Asian sea bass) had to be returned to the kitchen for heating up (weather was very cold this weekend) but after that proved to be splendid. The arugula salad - unbelievable!!! Place is pricey, but the food is worth it, esp. for special occasions. The tap beer menu is a bit dull for my more adventurous tastes, but the glass that our Yards IPA came in was beautiful and well-poured. Service excellent. Bar is very cozy, but best views are in the dining room.

The Black Bass is a favorite of ours, especially for important occasions. For the first time, however, despite the good quality of the food, it was lukewarm at best. The bartender was so busy with diverse tasks that my drink was also tepid, a poor excuse for a supposedly chilled martini. Service was good, and I think the waitress would have tried to address our concerns. It was late; we were hungry; and we did not complain. This is not the typical Black Bass experiences.

We were really excited to have dinner at the Black Bass for the first time to celebrate our daughter getting a job and her moving to nyc. Sadly, we were disappointed in everything except for our waitress who was very nice. We were seated at a terrible table next to the wait staff’s station in an awkward spot where people were walking by our table constantly. The restaurant was so loud we had to yell to have a conversation. The food looked like it was literally thrown on the plate. My daughter ordered the lobster - it was over cooked. I had the short rib and it was over cooked and the same for my husband’s duck. I’m pretty sure we will not be going back to this restaurant anytime soon.

Four of us made a visit here for Sunday brunch to celebrate friendship. Because we arrived early we waited at the bar until our table was ready. The bartender was hustling because she had both the bar and the servers to attend to. Yet she took the time to answer our questions about some of the historic items in the room while preparing cocktails. When she became aware that we had been waiting past our reservation time, she took it upon herself to go to the dining area to check on our status with the receptionist. Apparently, there was an issue that she quickly resolved. She then and escorted us to our table that turned out to have a spectacular scenic view. We couldn't have been more pleased. Our server soon arrived to greet us and describe the daily specials. During our stay we found her to be pleasant, professional, and tolerant of our attempts to be humorous. From the appetizers to dessert, our menu choices were delightful. Two of us had the crab cakes that were chock-full of crab with little filler. The petite filet's were on the small side, but flavorful and tender. The accompanying vegetables were prepared properly, a bit crunchy, not mushy and flavorless. This was a very satisfying visit and appropriately priced. An added bonus was the complimentary valet parking. Yes, the valet was friendly and efficient, warmly greeting us when we arrived and wishing us a fond farewell on our departure.

Restaurant has lovely historical ambiance but not stuffy. A little pricey for everyday dinning.
Beer on tap is a great choice to have a drink before dinner for the price ( a full pint for $8.00)
Servicing sizes are small, you can't split an appetizer, we order the shrimp in bacon and paid extra to get an additional shrimp.
The main course was very good, serving size was small (good thing we filled up on beer)!!
Had creme brulee for desert, tasty but nothing special .

Bartender and valets excellent , too. Coat check guy needs to be a little more animated. Highly recommend the Black Bass !

Black Bass Hotel has stunning views of the Delaware River as soon as you enter the door, with windows running the length of the dining room. There is another smaller dining room and a small bar, neither of which have the river views but are cozy. The drive to the Hotel is also beautiful, so it makes a nice outing. We were there for Sunday brunch, and really enjoyed the whole experience. Brunch has champagne and 4 courses, one of which is a palate cleanser. Our waitress was experienced, and returned rather than interrupt our conversation. Parking is across the street, no charge. Black Bass actually is a Hotel, we didn't stay but we were told that the rooms are gorgeous. The combination of good food and fantastic views makes for a great experience!

We love the brunch and the ability of getting a gluten free diet(even rolls). The food is very nice and well presented. The wait staff is very attenteive. It is always a special treat when we come.. The menu for lunch also has some wonderful meals. And the scenery is very pleasent to watch,especially the river and the ice flowing this past Sunday. Will be back soon.

After a long drive to celebrate a birthday, we were rushed with inadequate food. We made it very well known that we were extremely dissatisfied and never did a manager come to our table to apologize. We found the overall attitude of the staff rather rude.

Outstanding food and service. Particularly impressive are the gluten free options. My wife has celiac and must eat gluten free. Too often, restaurants offer GF options that are simply plainer versions of regular menu items. Here, many of the regular menu items are already GF and are still quite interesting and creative. We both had their signature Charleston Meeting Street Crab and found it to be delicious. My wife was also impressed that they provided GF bread, which is rare. She got the full experience for once and has been talking about it for days. Well done.

Although we enjoyed our anniversary dinner we were annoyed by being rushed!!!! For me, dining out is about the experience. This one was rushed! It took me longer to dry my hair than to have a meal from the cocktail to the check. The bus staff and the server were on us; waiting to take the plates as soon as the last morsel was visible. We felt no connection with the server, no pleasantries, no smiles but strictly business and move on!
