Wonderful service. We had the Redfish and rice as well as the braised short ribs. Both were delicious.
Always a very nice experience...great get-together venue with friends. Nice river-view & cozy interior. Also allows you to take in history of area & location.
The place is beautiful and the service was excellent. The food was good but seemed to play it a little too safe on flavor. I found myself adding salt to the duck.
Location is great. Beautiful views of the river. Seasonal outside deck available. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Main menu had a lot of fish choices which may be good for some. Although the Street Crab is labeled their Signature Dish, I didnt really enjoy it.
My husband and I went there for brunch celebrating his birthday. Every course was fabulous and delicious! It could not have been better.
Amazing view of the river on a foggy day
An excellent place for Locals and visitors alike. Beautiful views of the river and excellent food + Service.
Had a most enjoyable evening. We will definitely be back - won't wait for a special occasion next time!!
Warm, friendly, comfortable spot overlooking the Delaware River. Good view, good food and good fun. Enjoy.
We ordered a glass of wine each and 1 had much less in it. Martinis/ Manhattens are over priced.
We took special friends to brunch on Sunday and they loved it as much as we do. The choices for the prefixed menu were great and everything that we ordered was served beautifully, promptly served and was delicious. A definite recommendation for any occasion.
Always a great place to dine
My family and I celebrated Thanksgiving at the Black Bass. It was a memorable event because of the ambiance, service and the food. Although the restaurant was very busy, we were not rushed or hurried. The seven course meal was served at a leisurely pace with the staff pleasantly taking orders and joining in on quiet, lively banter. The atmosphere seemed as if we were dining at a friend's home.
Five of the courses were fixed beginning with pate followed by soup, a fish course and salad. The main was a buffet of two different types of turkey plus baked ham with lots of sides and condiments. Desserts were a selection of three different choices.
All in all an outstanding event demanding us to return for brunch, lunch or dinner very soon.
This is our second time eating here - it’s just perfect
Wonderful evening! All four of us ordered something different and all of the dishes were spectacular. The service was as good as it gets. If you want to treat someone to a special dinner (or Sunday brunch) this is your place.
The food is good and the view is fantastic! Perfect for special occasions- anniversaries, birthdays, Mothers Day, etc.
I have been visiting "The Bass" since the mid-1980's. It remains one of my favorite places especially for a fall getaway. Just this past Saturday night my fiance and I thoroughly enjoyed a memorable 2+ hour meal. We never felt rushed and the food and wine were fantastic. If you are looking for a special place to celebrate, "The Bass" will never let you down. The service, the food, the atmosphere and view of the river just make this restaurant one of my all-time favorites.
Took family member for her first time for lunch. Views of the Delaware are great.
One of my favorite places - great ambiance, quality and creativity of the food, great service. Lovely historic location. Worth the drive!
My friend and I finally made it to the Black Bass for lunch. We were so impressed with the whole scene -the entrance, view, location, the food was outstanding. Lorna our server was gracious, attentive, friendly and informative of menu items. Would definitely return four another special occasion but the Bass.
Great food, great service, we will continue to come back as often as possible.
The Black Bass Hotel/Restaurant has a gorgeous ambiance, excellent menu and food, and it's location is historic. The service is outstanding. Start with a cocktail in the bar which is very cozy, has a lead/zinc bar-top, and seating framed by historic china. The Main Dining area has a spectacular view of the Delaware River and the canal/towpath. The deck is four season, if you care to wrap in a blanket by the fire pits and heaters. We go to the Black Bass for special occasions and just because...
We wanted a good fall meal with ambiance and we found all we were looking for and more! My duck was delicious as were the sweet potato and spinach that accompanied the entree! My beet salad was well dressed and the nut toping was perfect. My husband’s escargot was wonderful! We splurged on desert, which was a pumpkin carmel cheesecake parfait and really enjoyed it!
We came for a my husbands birthday, based on reviews, we were looking for an upscale experience. The hotel is situated along the road and has a unique view of the Delaware. Inside the restaurants it feels rushed and impersonal. The server never mentioned either the birthday nor the fact I have Celiac (both were put in the notes on the reservation.). We ordered the short rib and the crab dish (the house specialty) off the gluten feee menu. I started with the kale and toasted squash salad. It looked like a child made it, the squash was dark brown (burnt) and not cut into squares but like thrown in random, chunks or slices on top of the kale with a ton of cranberries. The bread basket was placed in front of me and when my husband placed it away from me at the corner, the server then realized what happened. The food runner brought put a plate with two gluten free rolls at that point. No one poured our wine or water after the first pour. My dish arrived and the rib was 90 % fat and there was a fried piece of onion underneath the cauliflower. Anything fried according to the server has cross contact. She apologized and took my meal off the bill. My husband was very disappointed with his meal as it was bland and certainly nothing special. I reviewed a box of chocolate as a consolation. Still no mention of the my husbands birthday. Obviously we won’t return and don’t recommend for anyone who is gluten free/Celiac.
The Black Bass is a great lunch or dinner dining experience. One of the very best venues in the New Hope area.
Food was underwhelming for the price, the Charleston Crab dish was supposed to be served au gratin and instead came with dry rice. Our server was great and the mixed drink I ordered was perfect but the food left a lot to be desired.
This is our favorite restaurant. We always make a point to celebrate our anniversary here. We came at 5:00pm on a Sunday so it’s a little quieter than it would be on a Saturday. Their food is always great but I find I always order the Charleston Street Crab. So good! We’ll keep coming back!
We love the Black Bass. We have an annual brunch with friends, and visit other times as well. Scenic on the Delaware. We park on the Jersey side and walk across the foot bridge. Great food, great service, great time! Thank you!
Had a lovely time celebrating my sister's birthday with our friends.
The atmosphere and food was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Good except I was not given the specific table I requested and reserved. There were two tables for two in the room I requested. They gave my requested table to another couple. Who may have arrived a few minutes before we did. So we got the other table. I am sure it is possible, but I don’t believe the other couple reserved the same table we did. Sounds petty but it did not sit well with me. Black Bass is usually good at giving me the table I request.
Was very disappointed, my husband and I have been many times in the past and had wonderful meals,
He was happy with his meal , mine was overdone, advertised as crispy duck the breast was cut into large tough chunks without even a piece of crispy skin on the plate . To preserve the apples in the salad they soaked them in so much lemon juice they didn't taste like apples any longer. The sweet potatoes were not caramelized, but burnt. The appetizer was very good but if you describe something as stuffed that ingredient is usually inside not on the plate as an afterthought. (Horseradish stuffed shrimp).
The Sunday champagne brunch was delightful. The river view excellent.
Birthday ... delicious
The food and service was actually great in the restaurant.
Unfortunately once we returned home from dinner we both had uneasy stomachs. I'll hold on the details but we believe the bacon wrapped shrimp we shared was the source. We felt fine before the meal and the next afternoon.
First visit. Will return!
Liked everything about the place including ambience.
The Black Bass has been our favorite restaurant when traveling to the New Hope area. The food is always delicious and the service superb!
Our expectations were surpassed. Excellent food and service.
It is our go to special occasion place. We always love it there!
We love to come to this restaurant, year after year. The food, service and ambiance never disappoint. Every dish is thoughtfully prepared and flavored. Most recently both the cassoulet and sweet-potato-filled gnocchi were delicious. The ice cream is homemade and outstanding. We chose cinnamon and chocolate, yummy!
A favorite spot for special occasions. The food is very good, the service outstanding and the ambiance is relaxed and refined with a great view of the river. Never disappoints
