Food and service were excellent! Little pricey but food was definitely worth it. Will go again for special occasion!!
Nice dinner outside. Food was great! Service a little slow.
Honestly I want to start by saying I totally understand that there is an employment shortage and most places don’t have enough staff. When you go out to eat most places you expect to have to wait and that is understood. That being said- the service was awful and the food was equally disappointing. Most entrees are served with mashed potatoes and a sparse portion of undercooked broccoli. Our meal was luke warm and seemed like it was either pre cooked and reheated or sitting under a heat lamp for hours. Not sure what happened to this place it used to be an incredible little byob.
My go to restaurant for special occasions. The food is always spectacular, the atmosphere is great. Highly recommend the filet and the tuna tartare.
Good food and service, can always count on black lab for a delicious dinner.
Excellent meal and lovely service! Our serve was very helpful and pleasant. We ordered four vety different entrees and everyone was very pleased. Food this good deserves a more elegant ambience.
A WONDERFUL TIME - WILL GO THERE AGAIN
- MADE A SUNDAY SPECIAL
Great meal, excellent service
The food was great! It's a BYOB and we didn't know it so I walked a few blocks to buy a bottle of wine - no big deal. Just remember to bring your own drinks. The first course was wonderful, the main courses great (Chicken piccata, squash raviolis and short rib and the dessert were great (cinnamon roll with ice cream and crème brulee). We will be back.
Food was really delicious. Took a while for service to begin and meal to come out. However, it was worth the wait. Entrees were hot and delicious.
Another good dinner at Black Lab Bistro. My wife had the crab cakes and I had the filet.
Food was very good, service staff very attentive. Tiramisu was outstanding!
It's still descent. Probably not as good as you remember it, because there's different owners now. But our dinner was good, especially the tuna appetizer. And still a BYOB. Enjoy.
I’m ashamed I haven’t been here before after living in Phoenixville for 8 years. The service was amazing, we didn’t have to ask for anything - they were so proactive! The food was also delicious and so well priced, it’s definitely our new brunch spot.
Great server Jim!
Always incredible food and service!!!
Consistently fantastic food and service!
I have Celisc disease and they were very informed about the food allergy. I had shrimp & grits that were excellent. My wife & son enjoyed their meals. The service was slow but EVERY restaurant has the same issue. We will be going back
We enjoyed the food for the most part. My hubby had the pasta with crab and seemed to enjoy it. I had the duck with shrimp - kind of an odd combination. The duck was done perfectly and was delicious with the sauce it was drizzled with. The shrimp however, was overcooked, tasteless and seemed to be an afterthought. I’m not sure why they are adding it to this dish.
Sadly, service was quite slow due to the lack of workers. The staff honestly did their best but it was a busy Saturday night and it was tough for them to keep up. We didn’t stick around for dessert since we watched others order and then wait 20 minutes or more for it to arrive.
Great food but service was very slow. It took about 20 mins to get our order in and 30 for food. Longer than previous visit. I’m sure this was due to low staff and COVID.
Food was delicious but it took a long time for entrees to come out
Nice place for brunch, delicious food and EXCELLENT zucchini bread with the meal. We come here often to meet friends and it's never been disappointing. I'd recommend this place - a great spot for brunch!!
Great variety of food choices; everything was excellent. Service was great, fast and friendly
I’ve never had a bad meal or poor service there. Always a good choice!
The only problem with Black Lab is finding parking. The food is inviting and well prepared. Recommend going during the week.
We've been coming here for years, but our last visit service was really bad. We literally had to ask for everything we needed and catch Fei everytime she kept obliviously walking past our table.
Always delicious and consistent. Jim is the best waiter!
It was our first time there and we both enjoyed it very much
Have been here many times. The food quality is very good and the staff are very attentive. We will be back again.
Overall we had a good experience although the service was spotty and limited. I believe the shortage of help in this current market is to blame. Calamari was not as crispy as I remember it being but was edible. The rest of the meals were very good!
A little bit crowded of a place. Not a lot of atmosphere. Food was good. Service was good. Not a place I'd rush to try again.
Menu selection was very good and varied. Great summer selections. Love this BYOB in Phoenixville.
Food was incredible, all dishes best top quality. Highly recommend.
Chicken piccata and butternut squash ravioli were excellent; leave room for tiramisu
Met another couple for dinner and had a great time. All the food was delicious and the service was great.
Always a good time. The food is great, employees are friendly and attentive. Nice place for dinner with friends.
Consistently good service and cuisine with good ambiance. Very enjoyable.

Our waiter was outstanding, the staff was friendly my wife and I love this place…it is AWESOME
The value is terrific because the food is unique and exceptional. Never had a bad meal at Black Lab.
Chose Black Lab Bistro to spend some Father’s Day time with my 18 yo daughter.
She and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals (AND dessert!). Our waiter was great as well. The setting is ideal for having a nice conversation.
My sister and I dined there and love the Black Lab because the food is yummy and reasonably priced for the quality. The staff makes you feel welcome and love the ambience. The menu does need some updating
