Upscale all the way!
Service was excellent.
Food was vibrant and delicious.
we love going there in the summer. Lovely for riverside dining or just for drinks after walking along the river and canal. We LOVE the winter menu.
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 .
We try to get here on New Year Day every year. We love the food, the atmosphere and the staff. It is uplifting and a great start to the New Year. Makes us feel positive about the year ahead.
Wish we had the name of our server- tall, engaging Black Irish woman. She helped make the experience. Good selection, food well prepared and very good choices . View of the Delaware a bonus. Bartender and valets excellent , too. Coat check guy needs to be a little more animated. Highly recommend the Black Bass !
Always a great time, food and service!
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.
Nice for families, friends or romantic dinner. Very scenic restaurant that sits right alongside Delaware River.
