                This omnivore urges all non-vegans to waste no time in making a reservation at Bloom! Food was creative and delicious and my only criticism is the small size of the cheese plate.

                Mushroom and waffles are the best. Pancakes were a little rough. Really hard to get that right when you're subbing in most ingredients.

                Don't miss out on the Baja tacos. In fact, they are so good you might just want to stick with those. But the other dishes are to die for as well. My only critique is that the benches are very uncomfortable. Please provide pads!

                Absolutely awesome. We are vegetarians, but not vegans as we have a belief that real butter and real cheese are much better than alternatives. However, our Bloom experience has me researching Vegan recipes.

                I've been wanting to try Bloom for a while... I'm vegetarian, and my friend is not. We both LOVED the food... so many great things to try! I'll definitely be going back. Service (Kelly) was outstanding.

                While the idea is nice, the GF and Vegan menu requires a more delicate touch than the kitchen at Bloom applies. It seems more like an enthusiastic but unseasoned helmsman has steered the menu; turning interesting sides or garnishes into a main course, strongly overpowering the dish itself. An example is the "Saffron Risotto." A dish that overpowers and would be better suited as a garnish atop a more mild meatless concoction. It is also not clear from the menu that you will receive, instead of risotto, sunflower seeds swimming in an intensely over flavored red sauce. There was no indication of any beurre monte, or Saffron for that matter as one would expect if the dish is named Saffron Risotto. The potatoes (Kennebec Potatoes) chosen for "fries" in the poutine are prized for their excellence in making potato chips, which is where they should stay. The fries for the poutine are too firm to enjoy and bite more like a too-al-dente pasta rather then a French fry. The mushroom ragu forming the base of the poutine is, like the Safron Risotto, very overly flavored, disallowing the diner from tasting any recollection of Mushroom at all. The best part of dining here was the interesting décor, the lovely service from our server, and the CBD drinks which are not made by the restaurant.

                This was one of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time. The chick pea fritatta was so light and flavorful; I'm still craving it. We enjoyed the avocado huarache, the buffalo cauliflower, and the truffel brussel sprouts flatbread. Can't wait to go back and try more, especially when it's warmer and the windows are open!

                For the price, we thought the food quality varied wildly between dishes, and the portions were tiny. One dish was almost inedible and we gave it back. The server was hard to find after placing our initial order of appetizers throughout the rest of the meal.

                Vegan fine dining at its best!!! The menu is wildly creative, we had a hard time deciding and we’re very happy with our choices. The portions are small for the price, but I know a lot goes into each and every dish so we didn’t mind paying. One of our dishes was a bit on the salty side, but otherwise very happy with our meal. Service and ambiance more than made up for a heavy hand with the salt.

                Bloom was fantastic! The food was to die for, the service was great, and the atmosphere was laid back and stress free. I love that the portions are sharable size and larger than most tapas restaurants. My partner and I were able to have several courses for a very reasonable price. The Baja Taco was my absolute favorite. That banana blossom was TO DIE FOR. There wasn't a dish that we didn't enjoy and it felt like a really special meal.

                Wonderful food!! Each plate that came out was really more fantastic than the next! The creativity in the food and drink menu was awesome!! The music became too loud over the course of the evening—was challenging to hear my parter talk from across the table. Would have loved an aural level setting that matches the otherwise upscale and enjoyable evening.

                Bloom is always 10/10! My fiancé and I went for an early Valentine's Day brunch and truly loved everything we had. We tried the fried "chicken" and waffles, the kimchi pancake, and the tamale. All were perfectly prepared and packed with flavor. The service was great and it's always such a beautiful atmosphere for a date!

                Compliments to the chef for so much creativity and innovation with every dish and ingredients. Everything that we ordered not only looked appetizing but also was flavorful and tasty. Even dishes from neighboring tables were looking great and we have to go back to try them all. Proves that so much could be done with plants and veggies beyond traditional Indian, Caribbean, and Asian food. Spices in correct ratio can compliment each other add so much flavor and taste without too much oil and fat. Overall ambiance was inviting and atmosphere active. Alex was very attentive despite serving many tables and never rushed us.

                Bloom was fantastic overall! We did the kitchen table experience and enjoyed every course we had. Each course was balanced and delicious. On top of fantastic food, the wait staff was incredible. They were knowledgeable on the dishes and each dish’s component and just lovely to talk to all around. We even got to chat with the head chef/owner who took the time to answer our questions and was SO welcoming. I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. We can’t wait to go back.

                Been here a couple times now and everything has been amazing. The Yuca gnocchi, saffron risotto, and shroom n chorizo flatbread highlighted my recent visit. I normally think jackfruit dishes are overrated but their braised jackfruit dish was also delicious
