I always go back to this place! It's great for light dinner, delicious cocktails, and get togethers.
It was magical
The food was fine and the service pleasant, if informal. It's a place for young people, though - very loud music and better suited for large groups than pairs.
Service was great but food was greasy and not flavorful
Good food and ambiance for brunch with old friends on Sunday in NYC. Our third year in a row.
The food was excellent as usual, I'm pretty stingy about pancake temperature so I was happy to see how melty the butter was. Service was a little slow but we weren't in a rush. Will be dining again-great for a Sunday morning brunch with a flight of mimosas!
This was my first time at Whitman and Bloom and will definitely be back! I had a 7pm dinner with a colleague. The service was funny, friendly and just the right amount of space/attention. We ordered from the small plates and sides sections of the menu. We also order from the classic and seasonal cocktail list. The food was very tasty and drinks were well mixed. It was surprisingly not too crowded so we were able to have a conversation at normal volume. First impressions are important and W&B hit the mark.
Service wasn’t great. I don’t think the waiter liked us. Another waiter had to take our order and bring the check.
Should of stuck to bar food that was great but the calimarai was chewy and the cheese meat plate was soo tiny it was hard to share between 3 of us. The waitor was too atentive and kept interrupting us even when we gave signals not too. The ambiance was great as well as the decor. Downstairs had a live band and it was gray to move down there after dinner.
I would go there again but stick to bar food and drinks.
The food was great, but the service was pretty shocking.
- Guy brought the wrong drinks - twice
- Turned out they didn't have any beer on tap... 15 minutes after ordering
- Then billed us for the beer they didn't have
- They brought the wrong kind of tea
- There were kale leaves in the tea, which shouldn't have been there
All round, very underwhelming service. I probably won't go back.
Warm and friendly service by Jason (first night on the job, no less) matched by a cozy/casual atmosphere. The house made fettuccine with wild mushrooms was a winner... perfectly cooked and delicious. Also enjoyed the grass fed burger and house cut fries. Went back later in the evening for desert and were treated to another very nice experience. Nicely done!
What a great find for food, drinks and ambiance in the NoMad area!
We sat at bar, good cocktail
Food ok. Very loud
My wife and I met up with two friends for dinner on a rainy evening. The traffic out was horrible but the service inside was friendly. The food tasted good and portions were sensical. We got a nice semi-private table with a view. I would go again, given the chance.
Saturday Brunch on our way to the theatre district. Great food, great service, and wonderful atmosphere.
The food seemed creative and tasty but the kitchen/server made an accident in not leaving sauce on the side as requested so the dish had to go back. I hate it when I have to eat my food alone while my dining partner watches then have to watch my dining partner eat her food. They should have taken both dishes back and prepared so both were delivered hot at the same time.
Great service. Great food. Well priced.
Went for Sunday brunch and had nice ambiance. Not too loud. Attentive wait staff and food was great!
Food was very good. Waiter helpful, entertaining and attentive. Enjoyed a very private table. Recommend highly.
This was the second time I've come here for brunch. The food is tasty but the kitchen seems to have difficulty coordinating when it's prepared and the service, though friendly and apologetic when they mess up makes enough mistakes to be frustrating. Last time the French toast was cold and dry. This time, my friend said her chicken was delicious and moist, but the waffles completely cold. This time I had ordered avocado toast but was served eggs Benedict. When I pointed out the mistake I was told they'd rush the order, but it still took at least 20 min to come out. They kept apologizing, but still. Once it finally came out it was delicious, but my friend was already done with her meal! It's frustrating because the food is good, the price reasonable, and the service really nice, so I want to recommend it, but because of the glitches, hesitate to do so!
The fettuccini was AMAZING! We also got a delicious roasted cauliflower as an appetizer, it was divine. It was decorated for Halloween in a very tasteful and attractive manner. Every drink we got was unique and yummy!
Visit to NYC.
Casual place, good food for good value. I ate a ton of food for the lunch pre-fix ($11) which was an entree and two sides. Definitely recommend. Nothing fancy but good sit-down lunch spot.
My adult son and I had brunch here recently. I had the vegetable flatbread - a delicious flatbread covered with well-seasoned vegetables and goat cheese, topped with 2 perfectly cooked sunny side up eggs. My son had the lamb sliders, which he said were really good, and he's a critical diner. We also decided to share (we were really hungry!) the french toast with carmelized bananas, the only less successful plate. The toast was cold and hadn't been sufficiently soaked in the eggs, so it was dry. The bananas were delicious, though! The service was also attentive without being intrusive, and for brunch in this town, the price point was really good.
Had a get-together with 7 friend. We had a great time. Easy to hear each other. Nice food and drinks. Great value for money.
We chose the place because it advertised happy hour cocktails, plural. When we got there they said they were not doing one (singular) that day, despite there being a table tent on the table that was also advertising happy hour cocktails (plural).
We LOVED it!!! Great food and service. Felt like we were home, chatting with friends over dinner. Had a lovely conversation with the Owner and waitress and can't wait to go back.
This was my second time at Whitman and Bloom-celebrating my friend's 21st birthday with their delightful flight of mimosas! Service was even better than the last time I went, which included the speed that the food came out of the kitchen with, and the attentiveness of the staff. Will dine again!
Met a friend for brunch and we sat for quite a while talking. The menu has great choices and the food was very tasty. They have a small outdoor area in the back, as well as street side, which was quite lovely and quiet.
Whitman and Bloom has this really cute back patio that's away from the busy street and very well shaded from the summer sun. However, I feel like we might have gotten faster service if we had been sitting inside the restaurant. My mom's eggs benedict was very good but didn't come out very hot, however the salad I ordered was absolutely perfect! I would definitely go back again!
My expectations were exceeded. It was much larger than I originally realized from the outside and the food was outstanding.
Had a late dinner which everyone enjoyed. Salmon was very tasty and well prepared. Others had hamburger and mussels/scallops which they also commented was really good.
The brunch menu is delicious and the service is consistently great. A casual and friendly vibe.
Almost hate to share this review, because this is a fantastic lunch place. So quiet, and excellent food and service. I always wonder why it's not crowded at lunch time during the week -- but I love it that way, so don't know why I'm doing this review LOL!
Very interesting food choices. My favorites are salmon/bacon wrap, kale salad, fabulous french fries with great catsup, and grass fed burger. Plus one more thing that is so special it needs its own sentence: brussel sprouts!!! but not just ordinary boring bitter brussel sprouts. These are roasted with bacon and aged melted gouda cheese, and I could eat the whole order myself!!!
Staff are very friendly and the ambiance is really great!!!! Very comfy, with multi-level little nooks and crannies.
This review is making me want to go back there right now and get more brussel sprouts!!
I was really excited for this, but was very disappointed. $10 for a small margarita on happy hour? The mac n' cheese was super bland. Service was great, but I would not return nor recommend.
What a find! Group of us Irish having a reunion in mid town before a gig, made it in time for happy hour! Lively NYC feel, lovely staff and food was delicious-great tuna tacos and burgers. Had gorgeous cocktails too and although we couldn't stay, the live music downstairs was fantastic. We will be back when in NYC again. Thank you
We had a wonderful dining experience here. My wife and I both have a different sangria which was handcrafted and both were excellent. The menu selection was quite unique. Nothing disappointed us. We did not experience the bar crowd as we had dinner at 6:30 PM plus it is a neighborhood restaurant and most patrons were for the summer weekend. Our waitress Lena was simply wonderful and sweet.
Great dinner at Whitman & Bloom! Happy hour specials last until 8pm. Delicious sangria cocktail special for $8/glass. A great find!
