Brought my sister and niece here for a special reunion dinner. Delicious and varied menu. Great atmosphere, if not a little noisy! Very friendly wait-staff.

We are never disappointed at the Black Lab Bistro. Consistently it is one of the absolute best restaurants in growing and very popular Phoenixville, PA. The service is always extremely good and the wait staff could not be more pleasurable.

The Black Lab has survived the growth in Phoenixville pretty well. It’s a BYOB with above average food and the prices are decent. If you’re looking for something nicer than Ironhill but not as pricey as Majolica.

Good food and good service. We had rib eye steak and scallops for dinner along with calamari (which was just okay) and asparagus soup. The vegetables were cooked perfectly

There is NOT a gluten-free menu. We specifically asked for no sauce on the steak and told them we needed gluten-free, but the communication gap between us and the wait staff/chef resulted in probably consuming gluten at some... More
