We’ve been going to the bistro for years but it’s the first time since the pandemic. The food is still great. Service was pleasant and its just a nice place to eat. We’ll be going back!
I had a stir fry dish with shrimp and scallops. I thought this was the healthiest item in the menu. Most items came with mashed potatoes . I would prefer green vegetables.
Polite staff, accommodating, great food. Perfect for a special night out or a meal with the family.
Excellent crab cakes and a really nice dining experience
My wife an I have been going to Black Lab Bistro for years. We both ordered the crab cakes that are the best around. We also saved room for carrot cake at the end.
Great local BYOB with consistently good food. It can be a little on the noisy side depending on how loud the patrons are on a specific night—some people seem to feel like the entire restaurant needs to hear what they have to say:)
This place is awesome. The food presentation is exactly how it is on their website’s menu. Please don’t forget that it is BYOB. If you do, there are plenty establishments nearby that you can buy alcohol for your meal at the Black Lab Bistro. Will go there again.
Shared a salad - it was minuscule, maybe 2 mouthfuls per person.
Hamburger and fries were great!
James was great!! Very attentive and efficient even though it was busy he was always around.
Outdoor dining very nice and fun!!
Delicious food!! A++
Great food. Service was poor and food took forever. Very loud inside. Reservations must state (write-in) outdoor if you want to sit outside. Also, BYOB. Had no idea..
Only one waiter for many tables. Main entree took a long
Wonderful place to eat in Phoenixville. We had fabulous meals - highly recommend the salmon and braised short ribs. One of the best in the area. It was our first trip back to this restaurant since the end of 2019. It was good to see their food quality has not changed due to the pandemic. If you are looking for a nice restaurant with reasonable prices, we highly recommend Black Lab.
We have been coming to Black Lab for years and they continue to be our favored place to eat along Bridge in Phoenixville, PA.
We were seated immediately on arrival. We ordered the calamari which was lightly breaded and cooked to perfection.
First time here with friends. Had a reservation. The service was good, although they only had a couple of servers, maybe because of the entire pandemic restaurant problem. The server did well though. Had the calamari appetizer and it was good. Had the crabcakes entree. Mashed potatoes were ok, could have used more butter or something else to kick it up a notch. Crabcakes were very good, lump crabmeat with little filler. I would recommend a visit.
Although I've eaten dinner many times at the Black Lab, this was my first time meeting a friend for brunch and it was delicious! I had the crab cake benedict and she had the blue berry pancakes. Both entrees were well-portioned and nicely presented. We sat outside on a beautiful, quiet Sunday and the tables were appropriately spaced apart. Service is always friendly and efficient. Recommend always.
Average at best. Brussel sprouts appetizer was bland and lacked much thought. Duck confit spring rolls were mushy. I had the duck breast and scallops for an entree...the scallops were perfect but the duck was chewy and were flavor less.
Outdoor dining on a beautiful evening. Great server, he was busy but very attentive!
Great food and desserts!!
Always a great dining experience at Black Lab, but their brunch is definitely my favorite. The zucchini bread alone keeps me coming back every time.
Loved our meals! Great service! Highly recommend.
Food was amazing and service was timely. Staff was very friendly and attentive.
Always a good experience; and we can count on having a delicious meal from start to finish at The Black Lab.
I never expected to see Duck Breast and Scallops on the same plate, but they were both delicious.
great food. service was good. The waitress could have used some help
Nice place to have dinner with friends. Recently I had the salmon with wasabi and it was excellent. BYOB is nice as you can bring your favorite wine.
I love BYOBs. The food was very good and a very nice presentation.
Still very very poor acoustics even with social distancing. Could easily be solved with proper placement of acoustic panels. They need to talk to CertainTeed Ceilings Division
Adorable cafe with delicious food. Staff were wonderful and accommodating. Highly recommend!
Food was excellent and the service was great. Overall we were very happy with o experience
Our favorite restaurant ever!
Good BYOB in Phoenixville. We had the fried brussells sprouts (nice and crispy with little bits of pancetta in the mix) and duck confit spring rolls (very tasty) for apps, followed by Chicken Piccata and Butternut squash Ravioli. Both entrees were quite good, served hot. Service here was decent (the place was crowded so didn't expect miracles). I liked that they sat us within 5 mins of arrival. This restaurant is a nice venue, but can get a little noisy, the exposed brick walls and other hard surfaces don't absorb noise much. Nice place though, I will definitely be back here again.
Fairly priced, delicious food and a great ambiance.
Food was great! Everything came out timely. We didn't have to wait long. Definitely recommend if you haven't been here. You won't be disappointed.
Crab cakes were excellent.
Very pleasant dining experience with friendly staff and delicious food. The beef short ribs are amazing, and they are happy to accommodate for kids even though there is no official kids menu. Will definitely come back again.
Excellent food and service
Was there for several hours and there
Was a no rush feeling
It’s always a pleasure to eat here.
The food and service are always excellent, and this time was no exception!
Food was excellent. We will return and reccomend to others
Live the food and the owners.. always good!
