Outstanding food. I was visiting from London and went 3 times in 5 days. T
THe staff knew me by the second time round.

The cheese tasted like real cheese and the ambience was elegant but relaxed

My family came to NYC just for the day. Our previous meals at Blossom had been outstanding; this was our first time visiting the Columbus location. The food (brunch) was delicious, and the service was exceptional.

love blossom--frequent both their locations. Columbus is a little bit bigger but still great zen while the 9th ave location has a more homie vibe.

The crispy artichokes were disappointingly soggy

I ordered all things I couldn’t make without hours (days?) of work. & my husband let me order for him. So I was happiest. My son ordered only things with vegan cheese, which he seemed to forget is never as good as the cheeseless things. Both son & husband were happy, but I was happiest.

Very yummy brunch with a lot of options for everyone's palate. Prices are steep, but portions are generous so you can probably get two meals out of one "serving" from the restaurant. Definitely a good option on the UWS for veggies and their non-veggie friends. Not too crowded which was nice, allowing my friends and I to enjoy a quiet Sunday morning. Despite the lack of clientele, however, the service did take a little while (we waited about 20-25 minutes for our food -- two of us got salad/steamed greens, someone else got the French toast... not sure what took so long). Overall, 4/5!

I was with some African American friends and felt like we were being watched the whole time very disappointed since I’ve been here before and been with my White friends totally seen the difference in attitude it’s absolutely disgusting how my friends had been treated both my friends felt very uncomfortable and the watched looked at them like they had no knowledge at all were in 2020 this is sad.

Vegan only cuisine, so healthy and plant based. Rigatoni pasta is creamy and full of taste with cashew pasta. Seitan marsala special similar to traditional type, but blander and milder. Beet tofu "salmon" is sweet outside but bland inside. All veggies are fresh, from kale to potatoes. Chocolate ganache is excellent, while "ice cream" is more sorbet like with soy base. Apple strudel is tasty too. Beer kombucha refreshing. Prices are hefty, so value is moderate.

We were a group of six for a family gathering- mostly from out of town. Taco and nacho appetizers were great. Salmon tofu dinner was good but a bit bland. The pizzas were terrific- we had both regular and gluten free versions. The market plate was also amazing. Service was very friendly but not always attentive or timely. It was 20 degrees outside but they did not have the heat turned on - just cold air blowing on us. They could not adjust it for us. We wore our coats for most of the meal.

The margarita pizza was “like soup on a pizza” as described by my daughter. It was too wet which made it hard to eat, and did not taste good. My son had the lasagna, which tasted good, but for the price we paid, it was a very small portion with no bread or a side salad at all. I have the seitan piccata, which was OK but again, very small portion. I would not go back.

The food was delicious as usual. I got the BLT for the first time which was A1. the char marks on the tofu was a wonderful touch. My only problem was the time it took for the delicious food to come out.

Went for a birthday! Amazing food, especially the mushroom ravioli, jackfruit tacos and Seitan Picatta. Excellent cocktails and great desserts in peach cobbler and Tiramisu made the overall dinner perfect. They service was excellent and they were patient with the kids. I would definitely dine again!

Blossom was wonderful as usual. I celebrated my 50th birthday with some close friends, many of whom are not vegan or vegetarian and they enjoyed their meals tremendously. I ordered the seitan piccata and it was okay. I love their seitan special in a wine reduction and was comparing the two which I shouldn't because they are two different flavor profiles. The artichoke and gnocchi appetizers were delicious and so was the chocolate dessert. I appreciated that we didn't get an attitude because we weren't drinking heavily (and increasing the bill). I am alcohol-free and so are a few of my guests while others only had one glass each. I also appreciated that we were not given an attitude when we ordered only 1 dessert to share (I try to stay very low to no sugar consumption). We each had an appetizer and entree and I ordered an alcohol-free mojito that was DELICIOUS!!!!

Waitress never came to check on us. Food was bland. We didn’t have sugar or salt and pepper on the table. Waitress didn’t inform us that the whipped cream was extra. Disappointing experience :(

This was a lunch visit and, while plenty of customers, the restaurant was quiet and blessedly comfortable for conversation. That is a major plus for it. Even the non-vegetarian friend was impressed with the food.

Service was very knowledgeable and prompt without being intrusive. Restaurant was busy but staff was fully attentive. Food was amazing with a great variety to suit many palettes. Tiramisu was *chefs kiss*. Will definitely recommend to friends and return to dine when we visit nyc.

Support the concept of plant forward menu, ambiance was spacious ..loved the banquettes and pillows.
Appetizers and salads were tasty, but sweet potato main course was a mushy mess .

Overall we had a wonderful experience, the food and atmosphere were great. This was our second time visiting the restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. Our only complain is that the staff seemed to be very overwhelmed, our server had other 10 tables. Despite being overwhelmed he was very pleasant
