It has become one of my favorite brunch spots in NYC. The wait staff is super attentive and the food is delicious. When the bill came I couldn’t believe how cheap it was. Long Island prices in NYC.

I’m disappointed that the “specials” have been eliminated from the menu on weekends I’ve always liked Blooms but will not eat there as often due to the elimination of specials

Just happened to be in New York on Super Bowl Sunday and the hotel concierge recommended Blooms to watch the game. We had a great time, the food was good and the service was excellent.

Had a reservation. Hostess couldn't find it. When I showed my OpenTable email from an hour before she said she didn't have anything, Ultimately high top in the bar.

Neither the waitress who took my order nor the food deliverer noticed I had no silverware. Asked after food came & I eventually got it. Then noticed no salt & pepper. These are basics I expect of any eatery.

Much less troubling but 4 TVs; 2 games; same game on left 2 screens; right screens both had a second game. Weird; wouldn't logic be G1, G2, G1, G2?

Our server was attentive, informed, thoughtful, competent....and the food was quite good. We have been to Bloom's Tavern before and will be again. Upstairs (our first time) will be our requested seating in the future.

They rushed us out after one hour.
They told us there was a private party, after we we half done eating.
They should not of accepted our reservation.
We are members of 59e59 and were entitled to a 15%
discount. They gave us a 10% discount, a three dollar difference.

Will not be going back there ever.

If you are in search of a causal pub atmosphere in the northern reaches of Midtown within steps of Bloomingdales and the design district you cannot go wrong with Bloom's. Casual, laid-back pub fare with a menu oriented towards comfort food. Excellent craft beer selection, nice wines and cocktails all affordable. Of note when busy the restaurant can be noisy i.e. ow ceilings, enclosed thus if in search of quiet conversation, not the best choice. However for comfort food at a reasonable price point a good option. The chicken pot pie is old-school and recommended as are the burgers.

Was there for a boozy brunch; restaurant was out of mimosas as of 1pm (bewildering, as that takes two easily acquired ingredients ). Server was not familiar with the menu.

Blooms is one of the few moderately-priced places within easy reach of the 59359 theatre complex. Happy to have the choice of something cheaper. My meal was solid and the price reasonable. The place was boisterous and isn't where I would go for a deep discussion.

Blooms Tavern is my second home. They ALWAYS cook my food the way my diet dictates. Over the past almost 5 years they have been open I have eaten here hundreds of times with almost all my friends (from NYC and out-of-town). EVERY person has praised their meal and their drinks. Make a reservation on busy nights because they are usually packed then. Noel Donovan, the proprietor, has become a personal friend. If he can't make you feel at home no one can. The staff are friendly and will take the time to be sure you are pleased with your meal. Unlike many Busy places, they never rush you to vacate the table. They also will deliver your meal to your home in record time and as requested. Blooms Tavern is Real Irish hospitality and a sports bar at the same time.

My friend and I had brunch at Bloom's Tavern on an early Sunday afternoon. The omelette and home fries were good, as was the service, but the TVs were too loud. Also, the seats were too high. I would recommend lowering the volume on the TVs and incorporating some lower tables and chairs into the restaurant.

We were looking for brunch before a show on the east side, but many places were very pricey. Gave Bloom's Tavern a try based on reviews online, menu and price, and we were not disappointed. It's cheerful and cozy, with friendly service and a good menu. A free brunch drink comes with each meal. The Eggs Benedict were delicious (although a crunchier English Muffin would be better) - some of the best I've ever had. Highly recommend.

The service was amazing even on New Years Eve when they were planning for an influx of people a little later on.
We went in as tourists and left feeling like regulars. Amazing food, ambiance and service.

Typical Irish pub. Food and service decent. Friendly enough staff. However all the tables are bar stool height so not very comfortable for anyone over, well, maybe 40. Chicken pot pie was good with big chunks of white meat chicken, nice puff pastry.

Great pub for a good lunch. The hostess did not offer to take our coats, we had to ask. The waitress was great. Lunch was good although broccoli soup was on the thin side and not very tasty. Would go back for drinks, ambiance lends itself to that.

I've been to Bloom three times in the past year and a half. The first two times were in the evening and it was a last-minute decision to stop in with a friend. Recently, I made a reservation for brunch with a friend. It's always been a nice experience -- good food, reasonable prices, and very nice servers. At brunch, it was the first time I had ordered an Irish coffee and it was great. I'll definitely be going back for another one. In the evenings, the televisions are on with sports, but I've found that it's not overly loud so I can still talk with my friends.
