    Very nice meal and service was prompt and attentive. Two of our party had the salmon, which was cooked to perfection. We sat outside … weather was just perfect. After dinner we did have an after dinner drink at the bar. Cole, the bartender, was very personable and pleasant.

    Food was great as it always is. The only slight negative was the big hunk of “al dente “ broccoli we got. Two of us just didn’t like it. Everything else was quite good. Service was excellent.

    Service was good, the outside was cute, but the food was way overpriced. The food was not bad, but nothing stood out. We had penne vodka, cheese steak sandwiches, and a steak. Everything was average at best and not at all worth the price.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to try somewhere new! They were so accommodating with our reservation, as we wanted to eat under the tent, but we were somewhat concerned about the weather. We ended up having a delicious, cozy meal on the patio! Great service, good food, fun evening all around!

    We enjoyed our meal under their outdoor tent. The food is unparalled for value and for flavor and taste in the area. This is complex and flavorful food. Thought the meatballs were the best outside of my homemade meatballs, accompanied by an ample portion of spinach. All of the mains and desserts were excellent. Unique cocktails that I haven't seen many other places, with a tropical flair that I welcomed. Because it was a special occassion, I indulged in a pina colada that didn't disappoint. The only thing that I'd adjust is their famous banana cream pie, certainly delicious, but not very banana forward; I had two small bananas in the entire custard pie. Even though we were the only ones outside, the service was attentive. We were pleased to be here for an anniversary meal and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

    Food was terrible. Ordered flank steak medium. Got a murdered steak with black potatoes. I couldn’t tell the difference between the black steak and the black potatoes. My bad for not sending it back for what I paid! But I skipped lunch and was starving. The server said she would tell the kitchen. No one came out and looked at my meal or gave me a discount for a plate of charcoal. First and last time there! With dessert and tea and tip $55.00 for that atrocity!

    Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention. Your dinner should have been replaced immediately and you should not have been charged for something you did not enjoy. I am sorry this matter was not handled appropriately and assure you that I will be addressing this with my staff. Please consider returning my call at 609-882-1150 so that I may properly address this with you.

    Food was just okay. We were three people and they brought out three pieces of tasteless bread, which we tried one piece. Food was not bad but nothing special. We had several items, stuffed portobello, pot stickers, Brussels sprouts, Caesar salad with chicken. The best item was the pot stickers. Chicken on salad dry and tasteless, probably cooked earlier in the day. Actually dipped the chicken in the potsticker soy sauce to give it some flavor. Was disappointed.

    Blooming Grove InnResponded on July 17, 2021

    John I appreciate your feedback but may I ask why you didn't mention any of this while still at the restaurant? Your server informs me that good feedback was given when she asked about the food. Anything unsatisfactory would have been taken off the bill and replaced with something delicious had we received this feedback at the proper time. Please consider contacting me at 609-882-1150 so we may discuss a resolution. -Steve
