A Beautiful Birthday Dinner
New to the city ( I have been here for a little more than three weeks) I wanted to go to a Vegan Restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I looked on line at the menu and reviews and was more than pleasantly delighted by my experience. The wait staff was friendly and kind , the food was AMAZING ( Get the phyllo veggie dish for appetizers ....yum) great wine selection, and dessert!!! ( I had the carrot cake and my girl friend has the key lime cheesecake, both were lovely) The only thing that was less than 5 stars was the hostess that night...she seemed "in the weeds" and sort of ignored me when I first came in...luckily a waitress saw me and immediately helped me!

Great vegan food
Love all the Blossom related restaurants. Had a delicious seitan marsala. Loved the sauteed kale, mashed potato and sauce combo. Had the mushroom pizza bites for an appetizer, and they were a great flavor mix as well - nice blend of mushroom with pesto.

The drink list (wine, juices, etc) is great. We enjoyed both appetizers (mushroom pizza bites and root veggie phyllo pastries). My boyfriend loved the seitan Marsala but my BBQ tempeh was just ok. Dessert was
good. Service was good but A/C needed to be turned up a couple notches on a 90 degree summer

Food was so good and tasty. No wonder we come back time and time again.

I love this restaurant. The menu is inventive, delicious, and appropriate for just about any combination of health-consious and/or kashrut-observant diners, i.e., the world of people with whom I tend to dine. The service is friendly, helpful and professional, the space is lovely and -- best of all -- quiet enough that one can count on being able to hear one another easily and so conduct real conversations. All this -- and still it's reasonably priced. A special place.

Great vegan food!
Blossom has wonderful choices and the service is great!

Excellent Vegan Fare
I've been to Blossom 3x now and had excellent food and service every time. Everything on the brunch menu is great (I recommend the black-eyed pea cakes particularly!).

Great healthy food
This restaurant has the best vegan food in NYC. The bacon cheese burger was the best I have ever had, even before becoming vegan!
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was delicious and unusual and the service was outstanding.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is great! Delicious food, lots of choices, and the service is excellent. Make sure you save room for dessert!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
delicious vegan for Everyone
The food was so tasty, and the ingredients so fresh and interesting, that I'm sure non-vegans would find it Delicious.
Also, the staff was friendly and patient in explaining the choices. Great experience!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Surprisingly delicious! No desire to be a vegan, but I'd go back!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not a regular at a veggie or vegan restaurant, it was a pleasant surprise to be treated to good food, tasty and reasonably priced.

Great food for vegans and everyone!
Great food. Prepared with care. Non-vegan friends love it too.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Healthful and delicious!
The food here is wonderful and the ambience and service is very nice. I highly recommend it!
8/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Blossom is a great place for kosher vegans, and everyone else. We had dinner with friends there and all our various dietary needs were met. Service was excellent from the friendly, patient staff. We definitely will be going to Blossom again.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The entire family enjoyed a delicious, healthy dinner with good selection and service. Creative vegan dishes beautifully presented. Every one was pleased with their food and eager to return again.

Amazing kosher vegan food
My group really enjoyed our meal at Cafe Blossom. We made a reservation for 4:00, which was unnecessary since the restaurant was empty. Great selection of food, a little pricey though. The sandwiches were delicious. Overall great experience.

Vegan for non-vegans
I'm not very familiar with vegan cuisine, but I found everything flavorful and beautifully presented.

Haven for Veggies
Lovely spot in a nice upper west side neighborhood. The food was really creative, delicious proof that eating meat is so unnecessary. I've already recommended to several herbivores as well as carnivores who need to taste the error of their ways.

I <3 Cafe Blossom
This is a great restaurant for vegetarian/vegan AND carnivores. The soy-bacon "cheeseburger" and chocolate vegan chocolate cake are worth the trip alone. The service varies based on who is working and how busy the place is. My server for this particular meal seemed extremely busy and was very slow getting to the table (we sat for about 15 minutes before our drink orders were taken). However, in spite of being assigned tables all over the restaurant he was always smiling and friendly in his brief encounters with myself and my guest. In general the wait staff seemed under-staffed on this particular evening. Great place to eat, but make sure to let the staff know if you've got to be somewhere.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been looking forward to going to Cafe Blossom for a long time, and I guess my expectations were set too high. Please understand, the food was delicious, but it did not "exceed" my expectations. I have been a Vegan for almost 2 years now and have eaten at many Vegan restaurants in this time. I live in the Philadelphia area and have also eaten at Vedge. With Blossom being in NYC I thought it would be on the Vedge level, or above. Well, it was below; but just a little below. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this restaurant to my non-Vegan friends also.

Delicious vegan brunch
We had a wonderful vegan brunch on a lazy Sunday. My husband, not vegan, thoroughly enjoyed his stuffed chickpea crepe, and my vegan grilled cheese was phenomenal. Drinks (pomegranate mimosa and mint iced tea) were also first rate. The restaurant is located on a beautiful block of the Upper West Side, with a relaxed, casual vibe. No stuffiness or holier-than-thou vegan police. Any vegan restaurant that can satisfy its carnivore customers too is a win!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Group Dining at its best
My small group of 4 had a wonderful experience at Blossom. Serious meat eaters enjoyed every dish they ordered and didn't miss the fact that there was no meat. Food was absolutely delicious. The black-eye pea cake was so yummy. Two guests ordered it to go. The smoothies and juice combinations were perfect with our brunch selections. We all left completely satisfied and will return to try more dishes. Mind you we ordered tons of food to sample and it was sooooooo good. I may have converted my friends to being a vegan after this.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am never disappointed with the food here. Really delicious vegan food that even meat eaters enjoy! I can't come here without ordering the caesar salad with tempeh bacon--it's addictive.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good vegan food at a fair price
The food here was excellent. I have been before but this was my best experience. The service was really good. The soups here are always good so have one. So is the cake. Overall our whole meal was very delicious.

1st time vegan experience
this is my first expereince to vegan food so to any puriest out there I am not an expert but overall thought the food was delicious we had the mushroom calamari, vegetatarian phyllo as appetizers and the vegetarian lasagna and fetachini alfedo as entrees both were good but I would go for the lasagna.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
surprisngly good food!
Who knew vegan food could be so delicious and served up in a warm and professional atmosphere. The wines by the glass are quite nice as well. Mangia!

I am a vegan and my partner
I am a vegan and my partner has learned to appreciate vegetarian. we live in the DC metro area where we have a range of restaurants. But, we have NOTHING like the creative, wide-ranging, flavourful and superbly presented as the Blossom array! It's such a joy to have something where I don't have to explain that I do NOT want cheese (nor do I even want to hear about it). the wine and beer selection is interesting and top notch. but, it's the range of vegetarian and vegan options that are tasty, delicious, and filling. no, i don't work for Blossom, either!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
to vegan or not to vegan
i eat meat fish raw anything else how its supposed to be cooked - I went to Blossom cafe because a vegetarian was joining me to eat before going to metallica at the apollo theatre historic event anyway - he said we didnt have to go vegan= said im a trained chef i worked at chanterelle , chez panisse and bond street to name a few so i take my eats seriously - I can be extreme at times - anyway we ordered tofu seitan and the usual meat substitutes and we werre all wowed it was delish and friendly clean and awesome! bummer though their juicer was on the fritz- and in my opinion they shoud have RUN out to buy one at chelsea market or bowery pan handler - a vegan restaurant without a juicer is like a bbq joint with a broiken grill - just saying!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good selection for a
Very good selection for a vegetarian restaurant. Preparation was excellent, portions were good. I consider myself a carnivore and was still very happy with my dinner, and we didn't even order dessert.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to celebrate a special occasion.Great food;just a bit too noisy.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Blossom many times and I always enjoy the food very much. On this particular night my husband and I made a reservation in advance for our anniversary. I had requested something quiet if possible... We were seated at a small table in the back near several other diners. A few moments later the host came over to us and apologized for missing my special quiet table request and she offered a better table for us in the front near the window. We gladly took it and thanked her.
Of course, the food was amazing as always. The service was great. Overall, we had a lovely dinner.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Creative veggie food
First vist and found good value for great food and it's a neigbhorhood place. Recommend it.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Vegans and vegan-curious folk will both be delighted by the food and service at this restaurant! My only complaint is that the dining room was uncomfortably hot during our meal. Also, due to the size of the restaurant, the noise level can get unpleasant. Do not go to Blossom for an intimate meal. Take friends and treat your tastebuds to some fantastic veg cuisine!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a delicious meal with low noise and fabulous service. Wonderful vegan options, delicious juices and drinks and large portions. I would recommend it and return to Cafe Blossom, It was great.
10/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
a comfy vegan nook
Arrived @ cafe blossom 30 mins before our reservation and was seated no problem. Diverse menu- prompt and polite service - very nice wine and beer selection. Try the wolaver's Oatmeal stout.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
I love this restaurant. I make it a must every time I'm in NYC. Had the seitan Marsala and my date had the veggie lasagna. Both were delicious and my date(a non vegan) loved the food and the atmosphere.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Amazing vegan food
One of the best vegan places in the city. Food selections here are cozy and hearty.
You will not leave this place hungry (like some other vegan restaurants).
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Cafe blossom west village
We had a great meal. I made the mistake of showing up at the west village location. They accommodated my reservation and I called the UWS location and apologized.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
healthy and tasty
We enjoyed the food so much that we are going to try the restaurant in the west village as well. The quinoa salad was a wonderful combination of textures and flavors, and very filling. The seitan was crunchy and good - one doesn't miss meat etc here, with food this interesting. The server was consistently helpful in explaining the dishes (nice for someone who has never tried much vegetarian/organic). Although we were at a table for 2 next to the bar, it was quiet enough because it was mid-week and not too busy.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food magic! Right up to the indescribably delicious Tiramisu!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Blossom is a favorite of ours, and we always try to go there on special occasions because it's one of the few restaurants in NYC where you feel like you're indulging because they make vegan taste so good. This week it was an opportunity to treat my husband on his birthday. We always finish with Butterfinger shakes - the best! We love the ambiance, including the candles on the tables - gives the place a nice, warm glow.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had the pleasure of experiencing blossom for their special Thanksgiving menu and the Tiramasu was exceptional.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
we go to the city about three times yearly but never miss Blossom. The creativity of the cooking, the savory flavors, and the attention to detail cannot be beat. I am the vegan but this time decided to have only an appetizer and a couple of sides instead of too much food right after Thanksgiving. NO PROBLEM. The black pea cakes are just out of this world, along with the brussel sprouts and a salad. Lovely wine and beer list. NOT TO BE MISSED!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Vegan Friendly deliciousness
We were 30 min late for our reservation but the super friendly staff was accommodating. We sat at the bar for wine and my ten yr d had a smoothie. It was worth the short wait. Food was fabulous even the non-vegan in our party was pleased. From guac to quinoa salad to veggie lasagna to the chocolate cake everything was delicious fresh and healthy. Enjoyed the vegan wine list as well. Staff was kind enough to recommend other local vegan favorites in NYC. Would definitely return here.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not just for vegans
Our family has been going to Blossom since it opened (we live down the block). Our family (3 kids, 2 adults) has some vegans, some non, and we all enjoy the food. The service is good, and the food ranges from the fancy (seitan au poivre) to the comfort level (the soy bacon cheeseburger is a huge favorite, and the kids get soy chicken sticks and fries that are great).
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best for Birthday Brunch
Cafe Blossom made the birthday brunch special. We came later for brunch so they encouraged us to get all of our orders in fast, but said we could stay as late as we wanted. We stayed all the way through to dinner service and they were STILL nice to us.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delish food - took my non-veg brother on a trip to NYC and he had the bacon cheeseburger and cleaned his plate. The BLT was off the hook! Will def hit it up again when I venture back to the city
