visited with friends in the evening. Our waiter was most attentive and we felt relaxed, not rushed at all. Wine and drinks were good. The food was well presented and flavours very good. A very enjoyable evening all round.

This place is very cosy. Whether you are coming on your own, with family or with a significant other, the atmosphere is wonderful. The food is freshly prepared so be prepared to wait for it but you will get bread and butter to keep your mouth busy. The desert is delicious and the owner makes it himself. The steaks are... More

I eat here a number of times a week and have never been disappointed. Consistent excellent meals each and every time. I have had most of the meals on the menu. Rarely that you find a place where you can eat beef, pork, fish, chicken or even vegetarian and all dishes are excellent. The following are my favorites. Starters -... More

I came to Bloem with very low expectations with regard to food, but must admit I had one of my best steaks in a long time at this restaurant. The Jack Daniels sauce is recommended. Efficient Service - probably the best we received in Bloem (admittedly it does operate off a low base. ;)).

The restaurant decor is stylish and features several posters and murals of well known New York landmarks. It is also divided into a number of sections where large groups could probably be accommodated separately from other patrons. The service, both in getting us to our table and from our waitress, was very efficient. The wine list includes sufficient variety and... More

Great food, great atmosphere, great service and friendly staff. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Bloemfontein! It does get slightly noisy during peak times. Pricing seems high, until you get your huge plate of top quality food. Well worth it!

Lovely setting and easy access to the restaurant. The starters were great and the mains continued that flow. However the most disappointing part of the meal were the desserts. We had the Creme Brulê with the sugar that was still soft on the surface. The custard was powdery and the bottom had an arb layer that was not edible at... More

We recently were privileged to share a group meal at New York with about 40 other group members. The menu had been prebooked. The food was tasty - I had a 300g rump after a seafood starter and the pudding rounded the evening off very pleasantly. We enjoyed our annual visit to the restaurant. My Calamari starters were particularly tasty.

I love this place. Can almost call it New York - New York. Takes you to the USA with all the landmark murials on the walls. Best value for money. Food is awesome and the service is world class. Why do I call it sexy dining ? Although the restaurant caters for all like parties, family get-to-gethers and so on,... More
