Arrived at 10pm for our reservation and were seated with the next 5-8 minutes , after over looking the menu, 10-15 minutes pass by and not one waitress/waiter passed by at all only the water servers ( they were more attentive than anyone ) then i finally stop a bus boy and ask for our server . The manager had to come take our order and told him we’ve been ready for a while . After doing so the drinks didn’t come to our table for another 20-30 min we had to go to the sever and complain about our drinks . After the drinks came my drink was wrong and my girlfriend drink was watered down and explained to the manager but he responded “ i don’t think it’s been sitting there for the long” . We asked for a new drink they finally brought ours over but this time the jack punch was just sweet so we order an extra shot and the managers is give us one each on the house and apologized , i had the bulldog and let’s just say i couldn’t finish it but did enjoy it a bit just a little too sweet with the passion fruit syrup . When the food finally arrived they were cold we ordered empanadas that look like mofongo. They were good just chilled. We also order the churasco medium it wasn’t bad but just rough to cut . The green mash potatoes were great . A shout out to Jeremiah that attended us even though he was not a server he did a great job getting to us more than anyone else there. When leaving a young lady that we’ve never seen came over rudely to take our payment , the fasted anyone has ever attended us . We payed and left and awarded Jeremiah with the cash tip because he did more than anyone there good was alright service definitely not where they shine and drinks could be better.

I was so excited about bringing my boyfriend to this spot. I was so disappointed. We sat for over 15min before anyone came to take our drink order. From there on out, it was the same. The beers he wanted weren’t available. Food was ok.

Service was trash, my server came up to me and just said “do you know what you want” she didn’t even introduce herself. I presented the salmon, she never asked what temperature i wanted it cook so she just put medium. The salmon of course came out under cooked the inside was very rare. I couldn’t even find my waitress so i had to go to the host stand. The hostess had to re ring my meal for me and it came out 10-15 mins later. During this time i never saw my waitress she never checked in on me to see if i neeeded anything else or to even APOLOGIZE !!! What’s worse is that they gave me back the same piece of salmon. So the piece i bit into they put back on the grill and gave right back to me. So disgusting and unsanitary. Thennnn we wanted another round of drinks and my waitress was no where to be found so the hostess rung in the drinks for us. Service is beyond trash.

I think they need to be a little more professional at the door . I think it’s rude that when you sit the party down you tell them a time limit to eat . Now you feel rushed . As a restaurant you want business you don’t rush paying customers out of the restaurant

As soon as we sat down and ordered our food we saw a huge water bug running on the floor. As soon as we got our appetizer, mushroom flatbed, the huge water bug was on my chair behind me, I jumped out of my seat and was not so hungry. Our server said, oh yeah, it's the summer. I understand they keep both doors open, but if this is an issue, doors can be kept close and some poison can be placed. We are frequent visitors at their On the water location and never had such experience.
For the food, the flatbread was my favorite. I always order the salmon which was a little dry and didn't have enough reduction. My friends pernil was off the bone and he wasnt a fan of it. The waitresses did rush us out. They kept asking if we were done with our food. At what point my friend said, just take it, without even finishing it. The place wasn't that crowded and was unnecessary.
Would not come back to this location.

I have been to the blend Astoria twice now. However, when I went there again for the second time the first table that the hostess wanted to seat us was wobbling. Then she moved us to another table and it was the same situation. She told us she would get someone to come fix the table. A guy came after a few minutes to put some stoppers but after awhile the table was moving again. I am not quite sure what was going on with the tables that day but it must be fixed ASAP. Overall our server was nice and she came periodically to check on us.

Great brunch spot! The music was not the best but the food and drinks made up for it. The decor was so cute kinda gave Miami vibes. The 2 waiters we had were sooo pleasant the staff seems really Happy working there which results in amazing customer service. We will definitely be back!

Blend experience for my lady & myself was more than a date. It felt more like a staycation. We loved every moment even as we waited for our uber it seemed like we was in Miami or something. 5 stars def.

A friend decided to join us last minute and we asked when we got there if it was okay if a fourth person joined us to which the hostess was visibly annoyed with us and said we weren’t allowed to just come in and change our reservation and that they would now need to wait for a table for four to open up and that it would be an extra 15-20 minutes. We waited an extra hour and a half to be seated after watching parties come and go. We even noticed the hostess laughing with the other hostess at one point when we went to check on the wait time. In the end when we walked to our table upstairs, we noticed every single table was a table for either 2 or for 4. I understand that inviting someone last second is not great on my part but also my friend could have fit at the original table meant for 3 people?
