The modest, informal interior of the Black Lab Bistro belies the quality of the cuisine coming out of the kitchen at this Phoenixville BYOB. Menu selections are creative and varied, and appeal to a wide variety of tastes. At our recent visit, we enjoyed the...More

This is a date-night favorite of ours! The crab cakes are amazing...and I am very picky about my crab cakes. Salads are wonderful too. Black Lab Bistro has a terrific menu, great ambiance, and great service.

We had dinner with friends. For starters we had the Lobster Bisque. My wife and I both ordered the Halibut. They only had one left and I deferred to my wife. The substitute offered for the Halibut was a Mahi-Mahi. I was not disappointed. Both...More

Yes, every time I have been to Back Bay, there have been children with adults. Often, it seems that they are regulars. I suspect if you call ahead, you could snag a corner table for a bit more space and distance from other... More
