Very good food. But service and staffing is troublesome. Host is less then welcoming. I don’t usually make style statements but wearing a widebrimmed hat as a host sends the message that you want to hide from customers and it’s off putting. Server was friendly but incompetent. Really long waits between courses. He then forgot about our appetizer (luckily the delicious snacks of cauliflower and Brussel sprouts were delicious and hit the spot). Then another inexplicably long wait for our entrees. And a really long wait for our dessert menus by which point, three hours later, we were ready to go home. It was almost like there was a giant room we didn’t see that required constant attention because there wasn’t any being given to our area. Strange way to run a restaurant where the kitchen obviously has skill, talent and ambition. I was glad my guests didn’t seem to notice but as the local host, it was embarrassing.
We had the most wonderful dining experience. Our server, Ahad, was absolutely amazing!! A true gem!! I have dietary restrictions and the chef was so accommodating and created the most delicious meal for me. We will definitely be back!!
I didn't remember this place as a high-noise place but it was quite vibrant with loud music Saturday evening when we revisited the place. Food was great as usual but there was some problems in the kitchen. We waited long time before main dishes come out. Wine list is very bleak that wine lovers will be disappointed. I wonder whether they allow BYOB at a reasonable corkage fee.
Excellent food and waIt staff. Definitely will go back.
Excellent customer centric experience- loved the service
Our dinner was wonderful - great food, super service and nice atmosphere - can't wait to go again!
Our dinner at Bleinheim was excellent as usual. I highly recommend this restaurant for almost any occasion. Food is always healthy, very well made and delicious!
A great New York small restaurant with a talented kitchen.
Wonderful meal. Great service.
Incredible food and service. Great ambiance
Perfect place for a beautiful date. We start a flavorful poached farm egg also accompanied by the crispy fried chicken and for the appetizer we had a very tender seared octopus. After that we were too full for the entree !! We went straight to sweetness with incredible raspberry almond cake and a pear tart. The waiter recommended each part of our dinner, including the wine, which was a great combination with the food (Chardonnay and Sauternes). Also the service was great, nothing to tell about it, friendly, professional. I will definitely be back.
I highly recommend this place.
The food was excellent, I had the calamari and the monk fish. My friend had the risotto. Everything was delicious. The atmosphere was local Intimate and the servers were very kind.
Waited over an hour for our "reserved" table. Manager bumped me, spilled all my wine and didn't say anything to me or seem to care. This restaurant is cute but clearly is mismanaged. Food was ok.
My favorite restaurant so far in restaurant week. Flavors were fantastic. Drinks were interesting. I ate at a few other nice places, but in terms of food, this place is my favorite.
Food was decent. Waiter never came around to ask if we needed a second round of drinks. They got our salad order wrong.
Food was lacking flavor and served COLD probably because the wait in between courses was excessive (maybe it was just sitting in the kitchen?) Noisy and crammed place.
Everything was great minus a mishap with retrieving our coats that they had checked in for us. My friend and I walked out and she checked her pockets to look at her phone and pulled out a passport and wallet that belonged to someone else. Fortunately we linked up with the couple looking for their valuables but that still left my friend’s phone missing. Back at the restaurant, they spent 10 minutes looking for it and found it in the coat of someone else... hope they become more organized after this mistake.
Blenheim was a great dinning experience!!!
The food was delicious. Specially the spicy and sweet chicken thighs. The dessert could be improved if compared to the quality of our diner.
Great ambiance and music. Would return!!!
The food was delicious but the service was subpar. The restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived yet our server was not attentive at all and when we did ask questions his responses were lacking and undesirable. The food made up for it as it was delicious!! But for the service alone I most likely would not go back.
Stylish farm to table, very imaginative cuisine and fresh/seasonal ingredients. Stylish west village setting, romantic setting.
We visited the night prior to New Year's eve, which was very quiet, and probably not typical. Nevertheless this is not a trendy hordes spot but is nevertheless fun and intimate ( although would be busier and louder on a typical night).
Food was great, and staff could nto have been nicer...
Recommend to anybody who cares about food, ambience, and having a civilized but creative night out.
What happened to this lovely farm to table restaurant? The food was pathetic (i got the mushy ribs) and the wine (Nebbiolo) was hardly drinkable
It was a fantastic venue with remarkable and creative food that has now -as so often in NY- gone downhill
Really sad but I won’t return
I dined at Blenheim with my husband and his business partner. While the food was quite tasty, I have never received such poor service in a restaurant before. It took forever for the server to come over and take our order and she was incredibly unknowledgeable about the menu. This was even more difficult because I have dietary restrictions, so knowing if unpasteurized cheeses or raw egg is included in a dish is essential. Additionally, we received the wrong squash appetizer and had to ask four times for our broccoli appetizer, which finally came out over two hours later with our entrees. The restaurant was practically empty, so this poor service was even more surprising. My guests ended up going to the bar to order more drinks because the server also did not frequently visit our table. While I love the farm-to-table concept, and loved some of the dishes, the service was so terrible and I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Had a wonderful brunch here with a friend! Everything from the friendly, efficient service, to the food - we had Gravlack Benedict and Soft Scramble - ambience, music level, etc., was just spot on. Bloody Marys were delicious, we could hear our conversation over the music, it's a really lovely place in the neighborhood. I shall be back for dinner!
Good food but ridiculously overpriced. My squid ink pasta with lobster was white, so i guess that didn't happen. And it was supposed to have bottarga on it but didn't. My companion had their $24 burger. Besides the burger all the portions were tiny. Won't be back.
i've been to Blenheim a few times and every time it's an amazing food experience. They are also very attentive and welcoming, making every guest feel special. Definitely my go-to place. Great for a date or a small group get-together. It's a refined place to enjoy a well-crafted meal in a sophisticated setting without feeling uptight.
We got a Gilt City voucher for a 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings, and it was incredible. The pairings were thoughtful, the portions were reasonable, the service was great, and the food was absolutely delicious.
One word...lovely. My daughter and I were on a girls getaway and was overjoyed to find such a beauty a few doors away from our apartment. We brunched and savored the beautiful, fresh food. Loved it.
As usual the food at Blenheim was delicious. Ambiance is sophisticated West Village and fun but the real draw is their wonderful food.
Lovely evening. Took my great nephew to celebrate his 24th birthday & it was a perfect
restaurant to take him
Blenheim came highly recommended, so our expectations were high. A total disappointment as the food was for the most part, tasteless. Other than the deliciously roasted cauliflower and yummy fried chicken appetizer that set our mouths ablaze in a delicious sort of way- everything else was BLAH. From the tiny polenta amuse bouch to the Pork entree and on to the highly recommended pumpkin cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake... nothing had much flavor.
Maybe it was an off night but with the many NY restaurants to enjoy, sadly, this is one to pass.
My scallops came out very cold and then only moderately reheated and over-peppered after I asked them to heat up. Everything else was great but this was very disappointing.
The Michelin star is enticing, but the restaurant has changed drastically since. The "B" rating from NY Sanitation is the first red flag. My friends who ordered drinks were not satisfied with the flavor or quality. The breakfast sandwich was tasty, but nothing more than that.
Blenheim is a little jewel in the village. Outstanding and creative menu. The staff was
extremely professional and friendly. The manager was outstanding as was the bartender.
The wait staff very professional. It was our first visit to Blenheim, but we are already
looking forward to returning! All in all a wonderful evening!!
Some friends and I went to Blenhiem for Christmas Eve and had a 5 course special meal that was put on for th occasion. The food was incredible - tasty, rich and seasonal. We had a lovely evening and the staff were very friendly too, wearing Christmas hats! The only downside was they couldn't necessarily accommodate dietary requirement such as non-dairy and vegan so if you have a dietary requirements, I'd recommend checking whether they have those options first. But aside from that, it was a gem of a place!
Christmas dinner. Main course was great, but the desserts of the fixed price menu did not seem be made in house or did not taste up to par with the rest of the menu. We definitely want to come back for the regular menu.
Interesting menu and nice space.
Service was a bit underwhelming given the price point. Found ourselves frequently looking around for him to fill our empty drinks and he did not start the night off with a welcoming greeting or an overview of his favorite items - simply "Hi, do you know what you want?" Sorry buddy, if you're going to give me the same level of service as a waiter at Denny's, your tip will not breach the cost of a Grand Slam Breakfast.
Unlikely to return. If I do, it's just for the fried chicken.
Great menu items done with creativity. Small and intimate ambience.
Fantastic good, fantastic service. Love that they have a full menu of delicious food made with healthy alternatives (sweet potato gnocci is to die for!)
