    The owners were so helpful when we needed to tweak a recent reservation. It made our Father's Day dinner as my daughter had a train to catch. The drinks were delicious and creative, and the menu has something for everyone. The outdoor dining under an umbrella on the terrace was pleasant, and the banana cream pie is to die for so be sure to leave room for dessert!

    Food was delicious! We had the coconut shrimp and bacon wrapped scalloped appetizers. Very good! I had the short ribs, the other two in my group had monkfish and a pork/shrimp pasta dish. Ended with crème brûlée cheesecake. It was all great. We ate inside but the outdoor setting also looked lovely. Don’t think you can go wrong with Blooming Grove!

    What a fantastic experience. The food was amazing and the staff was super nice and efficient. We were seated and waited on immediately. We had apps, dinner, dessert and a bottle of wine and we were only there for an hour and 15 minutes. Everything came expeditiously but never overlapped. We will definitely be returning.

    Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or enjoying an intimate evening with your favorite person, Blooming Grove Inn is the place to go. The ambiance of the inn and the soft music of the guitar player combined to create a perfect evening. Everything was delicious from the Ceasar Salad to the Lemon Mascarpone Cake, but especially the Scallops!!

    It was a beautiful night so we dined Al fresco. The service was excellent. We had the meatballs as an appetizer. I had a Caesar salad and my husband had the caprese salad. He had the pasta fra diavlo and I had the scallops. We finished with chocolate mousse cake. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. A lovely date night! We highly recommend!!

    We went to dinner on Mother’s Day, party of 4 with reservation. They took us right away. The food was absolutely delicious!! All 4 were very pleased. I had the scallops with lobster ravioli, to die for, still thinking about it. My mother had the pork chop, thick and tender and flavorful with yummy potatoes. Mixed drinks excellent also. Can’t wait to go back!

    This newly refreshed venue in New Jersey is becoming a favorite of ours. We dined there on this past Easter. They had no Easter brunch and we ordered from the regular menu, starting with Caesar salads that were fresh and came with a generous amount of homemade dressing on the side. One of our party of four ordered the Veal & Ship Orrechiette which came in a spicy and delicious sauce. Another ordered the Sea Scallops and loved them. A third ordered the Charred Half-Duck which was cooked just right, tender and juicy. That was a welcome treat since we have all been disappointed ever since they changed the original duck breast recipe at Rats a few years ago. The fourth member of our party ordered the Leg of Lamb which did not earn high points because it was smothered in a brown gravy that overwhelmed it. Note to Blooming Grove: please don't ruin a nice piece of lamb by adding anything to it except a dash of Crosse & Blackwell's mint sauce - and never mint jelly! We were greeted cordially when we arrived, service was excellent, the dining room was relatively quiet and the surroundings are attractive and comfortable. We will definitely be going back. Recommended.

    Food was delicious. My only quibble was that service was a bit slow (not horribly) and the room was a bit noisy. I noticed some people were eating outside, but it was really a little too chilly for us.

    Disappointed. Menu was limited. Soup of the day was served barely warm. Salads were good though. Main meals: duck served with a cream sauce over it and a half a head of broccoli barely steamed on their plates. Salmon over seasoned and short ribs tasted like pot roast. The one good meal was the shrimp fra diavolo. Banana cream pie was good. Tea mildly warm, never came around to ask if anyone wanted a refill of coffee or tea. Hoping it was a COVID related issue and they are just not back up to normal.

    Overall I had Avery enjoyable experience however once we finished our salad, it took a long time for us to get our main meal, I saw others served and get seconds before we got our dinner. There are other items on the menu we would like to try.

    Thank you for joining us! We’re glad to hear that your overall experience was positive. We did allow some extra time between your salad and entrée only so you could enjoy your appetizer without feeling rushed. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
