    Food and vibe were excellent, service was friendly but definitely slow. It was crowded for Sunday brunch so I was glad we got reservations, all the seating is counter top. Loved the innovative menu, all my choices were delicious. The parking lot is small and was full at 11am, so I used the Checkers parking lot across the street which had lots of space

    My friend was out of town celebrating a birthday. Honestly the ambience was amazing, with relaxing music. Parking is very limited but there is businesses around for you to park if you would like to take a risk with towing. The drinks was cute appearance wise but very sweet and overly priced. My friend had the crab cake which was delicious, but unfortunately my chicken and waffles was disgusting chicken crunchy but no flavor. Honestly the waffles was soggy I believe they probably was made before my chicken and sat until my chicken was done. The young waitress we had wasn’t attentive to us at all, but we decided to still be generous leaving her a tip. Customer service could have been much better. Not sure if I would return again for two alcohol beverages and two entrees check was at $115 before leaving a tip. I would say we wasn’t to happy with our experience.

    So my experiment was a bit underwhelming. We were greeted immediately upon entering and the hostess was very nice. We got a seat at the counter. It was a bit warm from the fryers but not uncomfortably warm. The waitress was very accommodating. I had the InBlume cocktail and it was not only esthetically pleasing it tasted amazing. The food however was plated beautifully but tasted kind of blah which of course made me question the value. I had the caramel chicken and biscuits. It was nothing spectacular. The chicken has very little flavor and the biscuit was a bit dry. I was excited about going as I drove all the way from Philadelphia to dine there but it in my opinion wasn’t worth the drive at all. More than likely this is my first and last time visiting.

    I usually do not write bad reviews and I hate to give a local business a poor rating however, there is a lot that comes with sustaining a successful good business. There is no valid reason for the 18% service charge. I was told that that was for the “people in the back.” Isn’t the cost of paying them included in your business plan? We ordered two lattes. They took at least twenty minutes to give us our lattes and they were filled with sugar and milk. I felt like I was drinking sugar milk. I ordered the caramel chicken and biscuits. Biscuits were great but unfortunately my chicken was very pink and undercooked. It tasted raw and old. Unfortunately I had to send that dish back. I love good food and I do not mind spending money on great food and would love to give this business a second chance when they figure out the nuances.

I had the Blueberry & Lemon French toast with a side of eggs and cookie butter iced latte. Phenomenal and very filling. The presentation of the drinks and dishes were beautiful too!

    This was my second time dining at Blume. I love the ambiance and the food was amazing again. However, I hope modifications are made to the seating/reservation system. As a patron, I make reservations to avoid waiting. Making a reservation and still having to wait negates the point of reservations. Finally, the 18% service charge per PERSON, not group, is excessive. Our server made it clear the 18% was not a tip, so in addition to the 18%, you’re also expected to tip the waitstaff 15-20%. In total, you’re tipping well over 30%.

    I love Blume, it’s ambience, and the joy that just fills the space. This was my second visit, and I set out to try a whole new variety of food and drink. This is a restaurant to sit back and relax, chat with a friend or partner, and chill out for a while. Everything is prepared fresh, and with a small kitchen, it can take a while. That’s fine; sip on a special coffee drink or cocktail and prepare to be amazed. The food is fantastic. Both visits I tried something I wasn’t entirely sure about… would it be too sweet? Too soggy? Strange combination of flavors? No, no, no. The blueberry and lemon streusel French toast was the perfect combination of sweet and tart and the fruity pebble French toast (yes, coated with fruity pebbles cereal) was delicious. I ate every bite. Reservations are a must, but also be prepared to wait a bit. Because this is a place to linger and enjoy, tables don’t turn over quickly. My friend and I weren’t in a rush, so we hung out in a corner and chatted until a spot for us opened up. Of course, this was also the prime time of Sunday at 12:30. My first visit was on a Friday morning around 9:30 and we were seated immediately. I highly recommend Blume and will be inviting others to join me there!

    Overall the service was good and the food was also good. We got the divined eggs, shrimp and grits, seafood omelette and fruity pebbles french toast and they were all really good. The grits were a little runny but it all had good flavor. The services was a little inconsistent. Our main servers was great and helpful, but the other servers (the younger ones) appeared to not want to be there and made it feel like we were annoying them when we asked for condiments, napkins, etc. Also, the restaurant has "rules" to read before you see the menu and it seemed very unpersonal to have 1) So many rules and 2) To not take the time to review it personally as part of a greeting.

    Blume was definitely a unique experience for those that are seeking to celebrate a special occasion! I went for my birthday with my family and enjoyed a delicious meal in a beautiful atmosphere. The drinks were amazing, the presentation was on point and the food was out of this world!!! I wasn’t a fan of the type of bar seating offered, but that Is due to the nature of the size of the restaurant. It is an old diner so there are a few smaller tables for two on the outskirts. The food was ordered and came out very quickly, the wait wasn’t long at all. The food was OUTSTANDING and the presentation was beautiful. You can tell that the prices are justified due to the portion of what they give you and the quality of the food. We ordered the strawberry shortcake French toast, the short ribs and grits, and the chicken and waffles, the Blume cakes and the shrimp and grits. All of it was fantastic and there wasn’t one thing that I did not like. The service was okay, you can tell that the staff is young and that they may still need some hospitality training. They worked hard to meet all of our needs. The rules are a bit strict, but due to the area is most likely necessary. As an example, there is an automatic service charge added and a dress code. Other than that, I had the BEST time! The food and drinks were good, the music was a vibe, the staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was great! They did a cute celebration for birthdays which I absolutely LOVED! I felt like family there. I will definitely be back!

    The space is very modern and nice. The chicken and waffles was nothing special. It truly needed seasoning. The server was nice, she needs more training. She would walk a way for long periods of time after a request. The coffee was too milky and not hot enough. My little sister had the seafood omelet and short ribs and grits. Both were very tasty. The alcohol beverages are really good. The gratuity was already added into the bill and the server was not good enough for the calculated gratuity. It was very pricey for both the food and drinks for brunch. We wouldn’t choose to drive from MD for this again.

    The food was amazing! Even down to the presentation. From pictures of the restaurant we saw online, we didn’t understand that the majority of the seating is countertop dining. We were meeting a family who is attending the same college as our son for the first time. The seating arrangements made it challenging for us to converse. Also once our time was up, we were asked to leave so they could sit other parties. They have timed seating due to the limited space. We would definitely go back, but more for a casual dining experience.

    Went for a second time this weekend, wasn’t as busy as my first time. The food is great! The service is mediocre and the policies are exhausting. When you go out to eat you want things to be easy breezy, reservations need a credit card to reserve, $25 fee is applied if you downsize your party or forget to cancel 48 hours before…there is a service charge of 18% the first time I went the server advised that that was the tip the second time around I was advised that it was for the back of the house and it was not their tip which had me flustered so I just paid 18% on top of my bill and another 15% on top of that for a tip? The “service charge” should be worked in to the menu, as we’re already paying $20+ per dish for breakfast and another $20+ for cocktails so there should be more than enough in the price to cover the back of the house. Also, this is not black owned, they made sure to make me aware when I was advising my friend that it was….the owner is Cuban…but if she got stopped by the police I’m sure she’d be categorized as black. I hope that with the feedback that they are receiving they’ll improve because again the food is great and the ambiance is a vibe but it’s not worth the headache that the restaurants policies and procedures bring.

    Made a reservation. Drove from out of State to sit at a lunch counter and eat grease fried challah and drink an absurdly sweet latte. They served us disposable plastic forks, spoons, and knives--wrapped in plastic like from a take-out spot. Sat next to some lovely ladies who waited FOREVER for their food. My companion got shrimp and grits. Well seasoned but runny. Spent more than $60 to sit at a lunch counter and leave unsatisfied. Lovely young ladies serving food. Seemed timid but I would too under the circumstances. Won't go back.

    Small restaurant located right in Wilmington. The restaurant has a small area for tables, the rest of the seating is counter tables. Reservations are strongly recommended. Our server was not very personable, but was still pleasant. We ordered some lattes and they were just okay. I wanted a hot drink, but the server/waitress was not sure if the drink was made hot. I ordered the caramel chicken and biscuits and a side of cheese grits. The menu said served with eggs, but I definitely did not get any eggs served with my meal. The chicken was cooked perfectly and even had a bit of gold dusting to enhance the appearance. I just wish the chicken and the grits had tad bit more salt. Once we got our food, our waitress disappeared and never asked if everything was okay or if we needed anything else. The ambience is definitely there with the decor and the fresh flowers.

    The restaurant has a nice vibe. The esthetic was quaint and fresh. We made reservations and were seated immediately. It took about 15 minutes for the server to come and take our drink order. The food prices were reasonable and selection was good. The food came in about 20 minutes. The waffles were great. The chicken was ok. My lemonade was good. Some items that we ordered were forgotten and came out a little later. Something to note, Blume has table time limits. Apparently regardless of how long it takes them to serve you. Shortly after we received all of our food, the server came out and asked if we wanted boxes. She also brought our checks before we were even close to finishing our meal. We felt extremely rushed, especially for a party of just 2. Also, they add an 18% service charge to your bill. When I asked the server what the service charge was for he quite frankly said “oh it’s our tip!” My companion had unknowingly added an additional $10 to her bill because she wasn’t aware of the self imposed service charge. Overall it’s a 7/10 for me.
