In Bloom at Keg & Case Market
Keg and Case is St. Paul’s most exciting eating and drinking project since beer was first brewed here in 1855! Inside the market you'll find a combination of chef-driven restaurants, craft beer and a uniquely curated market brimming with an eclectic mix of regional goods.
Outside, a bustling park is the backdrop for a diverse calendar of music, pop-up markets and events for all seasons. Revitalized and transformed, these welcoming spaces offer the community access to exceptional fare and new experiences with each visit.
One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while! I will definitely be going back! Sit at the counter if you can because it’s a wonderful experience.
What a wonderful menu! Kudos to the chef for his cuisine! The oysters are to die for, every plate we ordered was grand & the chocolate hazelnut cake, wow!! We sat near the bar & loved interacting & getting recommendations from the bartender. We will be back.
We went there for brunch (biscuits and gravy, and huevos rancheros) and enjoyed our meal. Brunch cocktails were pricey (we'll probably pass the next time we go there).
Everything was fantastic. However, The martinis were quite tiny for the price.
It was a perfect visit with my aunt and uncle, who live nearby on W. 7th and the rave about your place! I was visiting from San Francisco. My aunt Mimi and I shared a burger and Brussel sprouts!
Love the food. Pricing is a bit on the high side. When other customers are making excessive rude noise with inappropriately loud, fake laughter, they should be asked to lower their noise, or move to another booth (in the corner)....very unpleasant for more polite diners!
Lovely interior but very loud on a Friday night. We were in a large circular booth and I couldn’t hear my friends across the table.
Great food but smaller portions and a bit expensive.
The atmosphere is really nice- especially on a cold fall night. We both had the salmon which I thought was delicious. My friend thought it was too vinegry. Our vegetables, grilled romaine and Brussel, sprouts were excellent.
The quality of the food did not justify the high prices.
I have visited In Bloom three times: brunch, lunch and dinner. In January, July and November of this year, Every time the food was outstanding and the service was as well. If someone asked me to dinner I would hope the reservations were there as I love it!
This was our second time at In Bloom. My husband and I liked it so much the first time we went, we decided to bring our 11 year old daughter, who is a fairly adventurous eater. The evening started off not so great, with a longer than usual wait for our table, even though we had a reservation. (it was a Saturday night). We almost left to go eat elsewhere, but eventually we were seated. My husband had the grilled (barbecue?) oysters and we shared the gnocchi and a mushroom dish - all were delicious! The gnocchi was especially different, because it wasn't formed into little "pillows" like I've had elsewhere. It was deconstructed, almost like a shepherd's pie. It was different, but certainly delicious! My daughter had the strip steak, which she heartily enjoyed. The graciousness of the waitstaff and the wonderful meal certainly made up for the extended wait at the beginning. The meal was worth the wait!
This us an outstanding place to eat. The 2 pound porterhouse is a must along with the gnocchi!
This was our first time to In Bloom, and Keg & Case. We'd heard so many good things about it, and it did not disappoint! My husband and I went for lunch and I had the salmon - it was delicious and cooked perfectly! My husband had the dutch baby with apples, which he loved. We shared the brussels sprouts, which were also delicious. Everything was beautifully prepared and the wait staff were knowledgeable and gracious. We will definitely be back!
Great food, service, and environment!
We had a wonderful evening. Each selection was delicious, well presented, perfectly cooked and was unique. The recommended wine fit the bill perfectly.
$ 90.00 for a steak that was inedible, like chewing bubble gum. Described as a 32 O.Z. PorterHouse steak, this was a bone in steak for which one is paying $ 2.8125 per ounce for the bone. and that would have been fine, if the steak was good tasting and tender, it was not, it was very tough and chewy, this was not a steak dinner, just a steak on a plate.
The food was very good but the burger was small. The service was also good. The bloody mary was on of the best I have ever had!
Great food and ambiance
Hard to look past poor service. Our reservation was “lost.” Then when we were finally sat, it was a terrible table next to a drafty door. The hostess said she would send free bubbly to make up for lost reservation...it never came. I love the concept of this restaurant but will never return.
I thought for the price the food was unexceptional and the menu very limited.
It was our anniversary and our first time here. Excellent food, good service- maybe a little different because it was a Sunday night- but over all excellent.
Throughout our meal, whenever the waiter was interacting with the extremely close two-top adjacent to us, he stood with his posterior inches from my face. While it was somewhat amusing, it was also gross to eat an entire meal with a stranger's backside in such intimate proximity. Beyond that, the food was mediocre and insipid, with the exception of the mussels appetizer, which was tasty and well prepared. We will not be returning nor would we recommend this restaurant.
The chef accommodated my request for salmon cooked through as opposed to being barely cooked, which is what the menu recommends. I appreciated that, and it was served in a delicious, tangy sauce.
We had a great experience at In Bloom! The food was completely excellent. One of my table mates tried mine, then had another bite. Then had another bite (of mine). Generously offered to share the last bite of my potatoes confit with me (grateful!). Ha ha. But it was all so good. The space was lovely, and all really appreciated the quiet sound level - too rare these days. We'll be back!
Celebrated a friends birthday there Saturday evening. Our reservation ran about 20 minutes late but the market was a great place to kill time. The market made the restaurant location more unique and was a great addition to dining out. Our booth was great for a group of 5 to easily see and visit with each other. The server was “all business” meaning she knew her menu but wasn’t overly warm. We waited longer than normal to be greeted and everything felt rushed with selecting drinks, apps and food when she would return. The chicken and salmon were outstanding and flavorful. Overall, would give it a solid 4-5 but nothing truly wowed us.
Love finding a restaurant the moves right into your top tier of favorites. We sat at the counter (which I recommend if it's just 2 of you), had a great time watching and chatting with staff. Everything was terrific until we tasted the next dish, which upstaged the last. Can't wait to go back to try more.
Wonderful meal! Great service and food in a beautiful space.
The food was great, the service was great, but the noise level was above the 'quiet conversation' level. All and all it was a good experience.
I have had dinner here before and it was outstanding. We just went for brunch for the first time and it didn't quite live up to our dinner experience. The biggest issue was how long it took to get our food. The restaurant was full when we got there, so I think the kitchen got backed up, perhaps. The food was really good, though. Another small issue was that, while they serve coffee, they don't serve tea, which would have been nice with brunch on a chilly day. I don't know if I've ever been to a restaurant where I couldn't get tea. But that's a minor issue.
Friends were in from Seattle and we thought this would be a fun place to take them. My request for a booth was honored, which I appreciated, food and drinks were delicious, I had a Rob Roy made with Japanese whiskey! We loved the barbecued oysters! The grilled salad was yummy!! I tried the hamburger, which came with a side of onion soup dipping sauce!! All so good and everyone really enjoyed the whole experience here!
In Bloom lived up to its reputation, which is wonderful. The atmosphere is beautiful and intimate, tucked in the corner of the Keg and Case building. Lively enough to feel fun, but not so loud or crazy as to interrupt conversation with good friends. We got numerous recommendations from the servers, and chose to try a variety of share plates, sides and even the main courses. Shared it all - totally divine. The mushrooms were a surprise, the Brussel sprouts heavenly, but the main courses of the steak and pork chop were a highlight, given the attention to meat here. Nice wine selection, and the charred pineapple daiquiri cocktail was quite a highlight, and unexpected in taste. Bravo - excellent evening.
In Bloom is a cute restaurant. It is a good place to take a date or quietly celebrate a birthday, anniversary or whatever brings you out. I think having a list of good wine pairings with the meals would be helpful but our server did a fantastic job at helping us navigate the process. All in all, nice restaurant.
Great spot for a fancy date night. We were celebrating both our anniversary and a career development of my spouse, and we do not regret our choice. Food was scrumptious and the ambiance romantic. The crushed velvet booths were a lot of fun.
Menu was too limited and nothing really green on the menu
Exceptional meal and service at In Bloom. We loved every dish (Roasted Things, mushrooms, brussel sprouts, pork belly) and the Amari and sticky toffee dessert. Great ambiance, wonderful staff. We will be back!
Were able to get reservations fairly easily. We were seated upstairs which was okay, pretty noisy and hard to hear. Food and wine were good- a little on the pricey side though.
I made a reservation early on because I had guests in town. Was very excited to go hear given all the good things I've heard. Unfortunately, my table of 6 got placed in a loft area and it was restaurant week so they did not allow us to order off the main menu. Instead we had to each pick from a very scaled back prix fixe menu. Portions were small, food was just ok. For all the hype, we were disappointed and it was still very expensive given the prix fixe was only $35/person.
I would like to try it again but I wish they would have alerted me that the menu was going to be cut way back. We would have gone somewhere else. Unfortunately my first outing here is a miss.
Delicious Restaurant Week menu.
