An excellent lunch once again at Bloom. The cauliflower veloute was silky smooth and delicious, served in a heated bowl. The beef tenderloin was cooked to a perfect medium-rare. I ended the meal with a lovely gateau St. Honore. Great service and excellent quality and value.

Food was very good and really enjoy the variety offered. A great opportunity to try new things. Servers were very nice but very shy and soft spoken without a lot of interaction and conversation. ( also realize it is new and they will do great once a comfort level is reached) they were all very attentive keeping a watchful eye on the tables and clearing empty plates. I look forward to your dinners beginning in January and will certainly return. Are gift certificates available?

I have been to Bloom about 6 or 7 times, each time was enjoyable, it is sweet to observe and provide positive feedback to the aspiring students. But this Oct 2017 visit we were very delighted that the late session students were preparing our lunch. The food taste and presentation was second to none. IT WAS DELICIOUS, beyond expectations.

The food was fantastic. The potato and leek soup is still a fond memory for me. The only complaint was that it took a bit longer than I expected. For a lunch you really need to allow 2 hours.

I did leave a comment form after dining so won't repeat here other than to say the time between placing our orders and receiving our meals was inordinately lengthy. It was delicious and hot when served though.

My boyfriend and I are both Conestoga alumni and have wanted to try Bloom for some time. We like that it was inside of the school. Service was friendly, though we did have to wait a bit long for the entrees. Any issues we had with the food were minor. Tart shells could have been flakier. The soup bowl was a bit large for the serving size. Overall a fantastic experience. The price is beyond reasonable for the quality of food and service. We have recommended Bloom to our friends and we will definitely be back!

Food was great but it was a little unappetizing to be served cheese and nuts with the server's fingers. The buffet was a bit confusing as they put the appetizers and main dishes out all at once so we weren't sure if we were supposed to take both courses at the same time. Would have been nice if our server had let us know.
