Went for special 4-course menu during Restaurant Week. Lots of choices for each course, and we enjoyed everything we chose. We've eaten here several times and after each dinner wonder why we don't come back more frequently. We will aspire to going forward.
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time and because it was restaurant week it was quite a bargain. Each of the four courses was amazing as was the service. Perfect.
This was restaurant week. Four main courses, two were excellent two were disappointing. No dressings on two salads. Olive oil cake was over cooked and whipped cream almost nonexistent.
One table of 6 was so loud they took over the entire room.
Excellent as always. Drinks are pricey. Fish was excellent. Valet parking convenient. Crispy squid delicious and cooked perfectly.
We came here for the first night of Restaurant week and had a 7:15 reservation. We were not seated until 8:15. Totally unacceptable! Then we proceeded to order the 4 course special and waited extremely long between courses. At the end we were told that the deserts we chose were sold out, even though we ordered them hours ago! The food was tasty, but the wait was inexcusable, the service was very poor. Overall, we left the restaurant 4 hours after we came, which wasn't the plan for a Sunday night.
This visit was my first, I discovered them through restaurant week. The food and ambiance were great. Service was bad but they were slammed by so many extra diners. I will be back. The crab cake is a must!
Our experience was OUTSTANDING, in fact we are returning again this evening !!!
We prefer a more quite atmosphere. Very loud in dining room. We prefer dining at the Bass in warmer weather dining outside.
The servers did an amazing job in their efforts to provide service in a timely manner during Restaurant Week. Additional servers would have been helpful. I was quite impressed with Mary Ali our server. She apologized for the slow service and appreciated our understanding. She maintained a pleasant disposition during our dinner. Dinner as usual was exceptional.
Always have a very enjoyable time at Black Bass. A lot of unusual bustling and long waits between courses due to the first night of Restaurant Week, but meal was still outstanding.
Restaurant Week - While food was very good, portions were a lot smaller and thrown in a bowl except for the crab. No fun having all your items mixing together in a bowl.
This was a birthday dinner for my wife. The setting was perfect. Still day light. Beautiful view of the River. We were off down at one end of the main dining area, so away from other diners for good part of our meal. Easy to have a conversation. The food was enjoyable and the service was fine. Overall good experience.
The Black Bass Hotel was a great experience from the room to the dinner. The service was great and it was a very relaxing experience.
Wr went to celebrate my wife's birthday as The Black Bass is her favorite place for brunch. Their Champagne Brunch continues to be the best around and well worth the $ and drive!
Great restaurant, my wife & I have been here twice & live about 45min away and the drive is worth it!
We were celebrating a birthday and had a wonderful evening. Our server was very professional and efficient and our meal was delicious!
I heard good things about the Black Bass from a friend, and it was as nice as it was described to me. Really good food, beautifully decorated restaurant, immaculate, very happy, pleasant employees. A little pricey but that’s to be expected at a fine establishment. You get what you pay for, and we did, worth every penny.
I love carrotts and green beans especially when cooked to perfection (not over cooked)... unfortunately these vegetables were completely raw. I could not even get my steak knife through them. Very disappointing for price of food.
Another very good experience at the Black Bass. We can always count on a great night out when we go to the BBH.
We have been patrons for many many years and have NEVER had a negative experience. The food, service and total experience has ALWAYS been first rate.
Stayed at Black Bass Inn for our anniversary. Enjoyed ourselves wonderfully. Quaint, cozy, friendly, lovely fireplace, authentic, a must stay.
came there to celebrate husbands 70th birthday.Ambiece great-service great-But my filet was overcooked. asked for med and no pink at all. the one piece was not trimmed correctly . Taste was good.One piece great-one not. eggs were on same plate so had sauce under it .Dessert was delicious.Being retired and on limited income-to spend 80.00 for breakfast was ok if all would have been good. I still would recommend to people. One bad item happens somtimes.
Not as good as usual. The lobster and seafood risotto was disappointing. We were presented with the seafood on one side of the plate and a tasteless glob of separately cooked risotto on the side....there was no infusion of flavor in the risotto and no lobster reduction was used in its preparation.
Rather annoyed because we telephoned two weeks in advance for a window table and told the restaurant was full booked. Went on OpenTable the day before and almost every time slot was open. Despite it being my birthday and that we are regulars, they would not give us a window table.
We went to Black Bass to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. He ordered the most expensive thing on the menu, the lobster risotto, and a "basshattan" drink. I ordered the fillet. Our waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. My boyfriend felt the risotto on its own was not all that flavorful, but when he mixed everything on his plate together it was good. He concluded that it was good, but not as good as he had hoped for the price. We have had similar dishes at other restaurants that were not nearly as expensive and may have had more flavor. My fillet and the side of mashed potatoes were tasty. The nicest thing about this place is the atmosphere. The historic building on the river with large windows looking out is really beautiful.
First time we have been there and are already planning when we can return!
The appetizers were fantastic, but the size of the entrees were a joke. I ordered the crab cake and it was for a child. The rice portion was larger than the crab cake. My husband order the crab imperial and the portion had too much sauce and not enough crab. For what you were charging, you should know that the protein portion was inadequate. My husband and I eat out a lot and we have not experienced that such small portions and imbalance. Also, my husband ordered a second glass of iced tea and we were charged for the second glass. Again, for what you are charging, it is ungracious for you to hit him up twice for something that was probably in a pitcher.
Our experience was a mixed bag. Food was good, but the inconsistency was disturbing. I am not rushing back!
Beautiful view, welcoming staff, food is consistently good. This is a great place for lunch or dinner with a nice wine list......
A wonderful setting for a romantic Valentine’s evening. Candlelit setting, helpful staff and delicious food.
Was not given the table we were promised. When we questioned why we were bluntly lied to. 20 yrs we have patronized them and sadly tonight was our last.
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.
A wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
This has been in my top three restaurants for several years. Never disappoints - ever!
Sunday brunch is a real treat! THe food is amazing and the view spectacular- even on a rainy day!
Always great view great service great food! Our favorite go to sunday brunch spot.
Your experience begins with the Valet Personnel. They are always courteous and extremely personable. When inside, you are first greeted by the most beautiful Hostess Karen .
Now the great dining experience begins.... The Wait Staff and Servers cannot be more exceptional. The food is outstanding .
A definite must !!
Its a lovely setting beside the River. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The food was presented well and was delicious.
Black Bass has always been a great location for special event. The great food and historic inn brings a unique experience to an evening out.
We love it here!!
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.
