Had dinner with my wife on Friday night. What can I say !? Two bottles of borolo were excellent, stake was very grisly. I don't think we will be coming back for a while.
Ps
Service was good and we got 10% discount from the bill.
But the whole experience spoiled our night out which we don't get very often.

Chose this restaurant via Trip Advisor to take my brother for a birthday meal. Had a really enjoyable evening. The service was so friendly and relaxed, the choice of food excellent and the food perfect. They had a special on cocktails and brother had both as I had to drive home; he lives just a few 100 yes away; but my glass of wine was very pleasant. To make a very enjoyable evening even better out waitress bought him a special glass of fizz on a birthday platter . Lovely evening, five stars across the board, thank you.

I'm a veggie and somehow always find fault when I eat out, but all three courses (and that of my friends) were incredible. Bit pricey for a Sunday lunch considering we didn't drink alcohol at £125 - but still - inspired, well thought out, well built, well presented food.

We enjoyed our meal at Blooms but there were several niggles which detracted from the excellent food. We were among the first to arrive for lunch but already they'd run out of bacon and the cherry tart was also 'off'. Things do run out but it's not a long menu so it was disappointing to have choice restricted like this. The drinks menu was stained and dog eared, the doors to the toilets and washroom floors could do with a thorough clean and the roses in the vase on our table were dying. The antipasto starter was delicious as was the fish pie.

First visit to Blooms and not disappointed. Certainly not the cheapest restaurant in town but high-quality food and worth the price. Cocktails were superb and reasonably priced. Food couldn't be faulted.

Trying hard to think of any niggles and the best I can come up with are:
No harbour/sea view.
Very brightly lit inside.
Fairly loud 'buzzy' atmosphere.

But very minor points and didn't detract from an excellent evening. Will definitely return.

The food was well presented and very good. I would prefer more choice for vegetarian diners. The only criticism I have is that the service was slow although the waiting staff were extremely busy. We came on a Saturday evening and definitely the restaurant needed more staff. We had to ask for a dessert menu and the coffee showed up before the dessert, which is always a problem.

Restaurant was good overall. We were seated next to a large party celebrating a Birthday and so that always means you get a slightly skewed view of things as you deal with the impact of the larger party"s behaviour. Food was good, well presented. My son ordered a salad that Included watermelon but was disappointed that it had been chargrilled and was slightly warm! My only negative point about my food was that the lemon posset I had for pudding was very well set, making it quite cloying; I had hoped for a softer textured version. Otherwise we had a lovely meal.

A lovely evening for my daughters 16th. Although there were only 2 waiting staff - at one point they were behind the bar too- service was excellent. Thank you for a lovely evening. Oh and compliments to the chef!

This is a Great Restaurant, and this is the Third Time I have been here to eat.
the menu has changed a little and there is only one chicken dish that is marinated in Chile and
No Fish Opt for Main meal other than a Fish Pie, the staff were a bit slow with the orders and on bringing our drinks after taking the order, had to ask for our drinks.
its a shame that I have to write this negative feedback, we booked our table for 08:45 and last orders for food was 21:30, seemed a bit rushed towards the end where we declined the Desert or Coffee as it seemed they were in a rush to get everything cleared.

Don't let the good work that you have prided yourselves on start to slip.
Hope that this a one off.

Arrived and were welcomed with a smile, they accommodated our push chair fine.
The waitress didn’t ask us for drinks, we had to mention them to her.
We choose our food and it came in good time.
Then it went downhill, my wife’s food was ok, but my food was bland and tasteless, we didn’t stay for dessert or coffee, shame as we have liked it there before.

Booked a table for 8 at 2.30pm for my mum's 50th Birthday. It was between blooms and rock salt. Decided on blooms as a couple of the ladies are vegetarian. All I can say is I was totally disappointed. There was very limited food. For example only one risotto, no gnocc (was then told that the kitchen could do two gnocc but with peas instead but no sauce which made it very dry) only one cheesecake. The table service was shocking so we all ended up having to go to the bar to get our drinks as we wasn't asked. They done absolutely nothing to make this occasion special for my mum. I was utterly disappointed.

I wrote a review about a year ago that was not entirely flattering due to service. This time around there is 100% improvement on the service, to the point that they went out of their way to make our evening special. Lovely smiling waitresses, who were attentive and friendly. The food, as last time, was fantastic! A major addition to the foodie scene in Folkestone and fully deserves 5 stars....

The only thing we didn't enjoy was rock hard veg, and a cocktail that would work well as paint stripper, although staff were very understanding and brought my husband another one, this wasn't taken off the bill so we did have to query it and it was taken off.

It was lovely last time i came but Wasn't to impressed this time with the food was okay a bit blaned and the chef didn't want to make some onion rings up for me as I got told the was only two chef but when I look there was more, just being lazy. I hinted to the waitress it was my birthday and all i got was a happy birthday , I didn't get anything until my mum said something when we were leaving , as it was a treat as never come back to Folkestone just a disappointing meal.
