About Blenheim

Blenheim is an enticing new restaurant in the West Village highlighting ingredients sourced from owners Morten Sohlberg and Min Ye’s proprietary 150-acre farm in the Catskill Mountains. The restaurant is a canvas for the property’s vegetables, fruits, meats, dairy, and even maple syrup. A curated wine list showcases organic, biodynamic, and natural wines and artisanal cocktails will utilize farm ingredients to pair with the flavor profiles of the menu. Inspired by a world away from the bustle of New York City, this 45 seat eatery with modern lines give a departure from the traditional farm-to-table look, juxtaposed against vintage and antique décor. We look forward to welcoming you to Blenheim.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

We had dinner there last weekend (second time). Food was well prepared, service was very nice, all well. Only criticism to note is that the menu is on the limited side (it is a small place!) and, perhaps, the prices are a teensy bit high (nothing crazy by any means, just on the higher end for a nice Village resto. Very nice experience!

The space was cramped and the food was only OK. I tried to ask for a dry wine and the waiter pointed out the most expensive bottle of wine. I ended up going with my original pick but he didn't seem to care. We didn't like two of the dishes and the hostess said she would email me a 15% coupon to use to come back again but I haven't received it yet. This was now close to a month ago. For the price, I wouldn't recommend people going back here.

Went for brunch on Sunday.

Good: availability (just in time); food is yummy.

Cons: they didn't have the smoked salmon I wanted (this is my second visit. On my first visit they were out of two things I had planned to order - from a small menu this ruined the whole experience for me); coffee is super bitter and unpleasant; service was slow, waited for five minutes at the door before someone came to greet us; portions are small - they need a bun that is in better proportion to the size of the fried chicken otherwise it looks like they are skimping on the chicken. My husband asked for no salad on his plate and it came with salad. Seven dollars for a cappuccino is ridiculous, I don't care who you are.

Overall: food is good but service needs to crank it up a big notch and I would call ahead to check if they have everything on the menu otherwise it isn't worth the money. This could be a great local brunch spot (as well as fab dinner) but right now it is messing up on the basics. Never choose this over the Cluny.

I have now been to Blenheim three times, and each time the food was terrific and the service, while friendly and well-meaning, strikingly amateurish. The waitstaff is nice and pleasant, but you just get the feeling they were just hired yesterday and have never worked in a restaurant before.

Sunday brunch. Waited about 10 minutes for someone to appear at the hostess stand. And quite a few items were not available because they had run out. I understand one or two items, but it was much more than that. Food and ambiance were enjoyable, but didn't make up for the experience or warrant the relatively high prices. Too many other great options in the neighborhood.
