Food was good. Got dessert to go. The banana cream pie was not as good as it used to be. I was a little disappointed.

Great job on Valentine's day. Our server Hope was very prompt and professional. My date and I both very much enjoyed everything we had from wine to entrees.

Always have had a great meal in my 5 visits, However, this past Tue. 2/13, I ordered a Steak and it was not up to par with other menu items. I was very disappointed in the quality of the meat. My wife's scallops were excellent. All other aspects of the meal were good.

Of all my visits here, this was the worst! I noted in my reservation that I was vegan, which was not transmitted to the chef, yet the server came back twice to ask what I wanted to have for dinner. Since they do not have any vegan friendly items on the menu, it was expected that they could indicate what the chef could prepare on 'short notice' as it were. Unfortunately, they could not and sent over the dining room manager to take my order.

Training appeared to be lacking with this order taker... then billed for items not delivered at all, this I can forgive, but not knowing or asking what the chef can prepare, I cannot.

I will try B's again in the spring to see if there have been any improvements, if not then we will go up or across the river to eateries which are just as good in terms of food prep but better in terms of staff understanding of dietary preferences.

This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the dinner was. The service was great as well. It was very crowded and we had to wait a bit after we ordered so we received two free glasses of wine to compensate for the wait. All in all we were very impressed so we will definitely be back.

The food was excellent- servers very pleasant- but we waited 30 minutes for our drinks ( wine) and an hour and a half for our meals to be served.

Ordered Seafood Fettucini it was terrible nothing wss fresh
Crabmeat was imitation the rest was obviously frozen
We were highly disappointed but it explained why we were the only ones having dinner there on Friday night
Also I ordered a popular drink from.the bar and was told we do.not have a blender
Very expensive for seafood that was not fresh

My wife and I had a great meal. The Carmelized Apple Goat Cheese Bruschetta was unique and wonderful. I enjoyed the Mocha Merlin Coffee Stout that was on tap. We will be back.

Our visit on this occasion was to celebrate the birthdays of dear friends. We ALWAYS enjoy the food, loved the live performer who added to the ambiance but the service on this occasion was both lacking and shocking. Our initial waitress was polite, and not pushy, waited while took time to order and chat. BUT sadly the young serving staff were lacking in both experience and manners. Plates were taken whilst members of our group were still eating, including being swept out from under our friend as he took his last bite. They cleared the table as we ate, interrupting our meal, our flow of conversation and enjoyment. We met other friends who had been eating on the other side of the room and the same had happened to them. As we talked to this group of friends, who are very regular patrons of the restaurant, SOMEONE flicked the lights on and off, I can only assume to advise patrons that they should be leaving. How rude, inappropriate and frankly giving me reason to ever consider returning to the Blooming Grove Inn or recommending to friends.

Absolutely incredible service, as always! My friends and I usually enjoy a happy hour about once a month during the summer when you can sit outside at this beautiful setting. This past week, of course, we were inside with the fire lit, the excellent service and super food. The ONLY thing I would like to see improve is more vegan and vegetarian menu choices.

This was our second time at Blooming Grove Inn. Everyone was completely satisfied with their food. The couple we came with had never been and they said they would definitely come back. The menu has a good variety without being overwhelming. I had the scallops which were amazing and my boyfriend had the short ribs which he loved. They have an extensive wine and drink list as well. It is perfect for date night.

This was my second visit to Blooming Grove. While the food was good, I didn’t think it was anything special. I got the sea bass, and my husband got the lobster ravioli.
