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!
Great choices for appetizers as well as main dishes. Different seafood or steak or chicken or vegetarian dishes available. The desert menu is nice as well. Enjoyed the tiramisu
Always good food and pleasant staff
The food was done to perfection. Highly recommend the tuna tartare!! I also had the filet which was cooked perfectly! Delicious!
Food was good not great. Happy to support local BYOB. Will continue to frequent for this reason.
We love going to Black Lab. There is always a nice variety of food on the menu, the service is good, the people are very friendly and professional and they adhere to all the safety protocols that are necessary these days.
Fantastic meal. Best restaurant experience since the craziness began last year.
Lobster bisque to start and sea scallop entree is the way to go.
Reasonable pricing and BYOB is a plus.
Great service and food!
Love, love, love Black Lab Bistro. The food is always fabulous, the atmosphere is charming and always have a good time. Can't go wrong having a meal at Black Lab Bistro and love supporting local restaurants.
Very friendly staff. Phenomenal food!
Dinner date at black lab bistro was what I have come to expect. It was outstanding. The server was attentive but gave us our space for our conversation. The noise level was minimal. We felt safe in this dinning environment. The meal - my date had the scallops and I had the crab cakes, was perfectly seasoned and cooked. We shared the duck confit which was a great starter.
First time trying this location, never been to the area before. On a first date and we thought to try here. Overall, I enjoyed my experience here. Food was great, inside of the building was nice. Seating was spaced out and had a nice time with my date. Only thing I can say negative is they probably shouldn't offer large groups to eat there in such a small space. About the size of a living room and a half. Got a bit noisy when the group came in but tried to ignore it. Only one restroom is a bit inconvenient with a large group there as well.
Food and service was great.
Best dining out experience since Covid. They do a really good job. Great local place. BYOB. High end food and service.
Great, as usual
Service was great and the food was very good. Had a very enjoyable evening!
Food and service were both fantastic! It looked like there was only one cook and one waitress but we didn’t feel the service was slow in any way. We will be back for sure!
First time here. Food was delicious. Friendly staff and good vibe.
Always wonderful. Food and service was outstanding. Glad to see they are hanging in there during this pandemic.
We have eaten here several times and have always had outstanding meals. Some restaurants are "hit-or-miss", but the Black Lab is great every time.
Our first anniversary dinner was spent here. And the food was incredible. It’s a small space so it felt cozy.
Wonderful food wonderful service
The Black Lab is always a great Phoenixville BYOB spot to eat, and it was a sunny and warm day (for December), so my sister and I made reservations for brunch. Due to COVID-19 rules, only outside tables were permitted and it became kind of windy....and chilly. An outside heater would have made things much more pleasant, and at this point in the winter, I don't see how they are going to continue to stay open for the outdoor-dining-only rules without some sort of heat for patrons.
That being said, the server was friendly and service was prompt. The food was delicious....Crab Eggs Benedict are YUM!
Once this $@$#!!! COVID crisis has passed and/or indoor dining is allowed/the weather improves, we'll be back again, and I recommend that you all try it....you'll love the Black Lab!
Asked for burger medium-well. Burger was overcooked on one side and rare on the other side. Owner was very nice. Waiter was having a bad day and was a bit rude.
Excellent food. Food took a while, but our server was excellent as was the food.
