First time at BLOOM, and we were quite impressed. Even the inexperience of the server was delightful - as he had a good sense of humor. Will return.

I know the serving staff is all cuisine students. So it's hard to be tough on them. But some should know some basics of the process before their turn in the dining room. When to clear things off the table, warning of very hot plates when they come out...

Otherwise the food was incredible and we'll very happily be back next month.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful Valentine's lunch. The food and ambience was good. Although this was a college restaurant the students serving were very nervous and lacked personality. It was very difficult to understand what they were saying, quiet with a heavy accent.
I would definitely recommend eating there and we look forward to our return.

I have dined at Bloom a number of times. Lunch at Bloom with a friend on January 30th was a very pleasant way to celebrate a milestone birthday. The caesar salad was second to none according to my companion and was certainly excellent. The butternut squash and goat cheese ravioli with brown butter and sage sauce was really good, if a tad salty for those of us on reduced sodium diets. Service was both friendly and attentive. I will be dining with other friends at Bloom in a few weeks and will certainly recommend the restaurant to others as a place to try new dishes at very reasonable prices, with the expectation that service will be friendly and attentive.

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.
