I've read a few reviews before I went with a friend to their Fall Harvest lunch. I must say that we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of food they served.
We like to go for quality rather than quantity and the lunch portion was just perfect for the price we'd paid.
I personally like my food without a lot of salt, to many it may be bland but then you get to have the real taste of the food. The whole grain bread was dense and low in salt and chef's special appetizer, duck confit was well done and nicely presented. The ground roasted hemp was a great addition to the presentation. The melon crush pallet cleanser was refreshing and hit just the right spot and my citrus-glazed halibut was silky and cooked to perfection!
The waiters are still learning their trade, or tricks, they are eager to serve and eager to please. I've gotten better service at Bloom than in a 4 star restaurant with supposedly well trained servers. I think we should support our local culinary students as much as we can, be kind as after all, Bloom is a student based culinary school!

This restaurant is a hidden gem. My husband and I have been a few times and found the food to be very good. Service is great and always friendly. Check out this restaurant online for what the upcoming menus are and book and enjoy.

There were 4 of us at the restaurant. I don't know if the staff were new but they weren't great. The food which is usually very good was okay. The lamb was under cooked and a very small serving. The salad was good and the dessert was okay. I was surprised that the price had gone up. I was disappointed because I had suggested the place to my friends. I don't think I will be going back.
