I ordered the Huevos Rancheros and asked for the egg to be fried hard. They brought out the dish 3 times and each time the egg was over easy. I could not find my server and had to ask several different staff members and waitresses to help me. Service was very poor and my meal was never made correctly.

Upon arrival we were told there was no reservation under my name. And after a long wait, we decided to dine at the bar. Other than that, food and drinks were good and of great value.

Food was not the best. Appetizers were great. Calamari and arepas. Drinks were wonderful. Entrees which were seafood rice, Talapia fish and baked chicken weren’t the best. Not much flavor. Prices were good.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t a welcoming environment. I made reservations over the phone and was told I didn’t have one . Even though I received a text on the reservation time . No menus were available and was told to look on the website. ( if the reason for no limited menus is due to COVID , get a scan bar for the tables ). Food was okay , drinks were water down .

Customer Service sucks👎. From arrival I was dissatisfied. Yes I was running a late from my reservation @ 7:00 pm so I called in as courtesy, due to traffic I was running late but almost arriving. The front desk girl said ok and it wouldn’t be an issue. I was celebrating Mother’s Day and traveling with my mom and sister. Once I arrived we’re standing there as the staff continues talking among each other I’m waiting for acknowledgment but nothing then I said excuse me I have reservations for 7 but I called in saying I was running late. I’m telling the front desk female when another member/waitress with glasses and curly hair about 5’ to 5’3 in height I didn’t see her name tag involved herself into my question. She replied your table is canceled in a very unprofessional manner. At that point I’m upset and embarrassed I even brought my family there. Plz look into your staff members & there very unprofessional behavior.

The food, the drinks and the great
Timing the service staff took to ask if everything was okay or if we needed anything was what we were looking for. Also The waitress recommendation. Everything she recommended was delicious. Everyone was so happy that they were already planning to return for every special occasion. Overall, excellent everything.

The atmosphere was very nice which matched perfectly with the decor. The inside looks amazing for photo-ops and very nice for a dressed-up date night. The outside seating is comfy, pretty, and for families.

The food: bland; very pretty—but bland. Neither my party nor the two guests sitting next to us could eat more than ¼ of our plates. We ended up going elsewhere. The drinks were also pretty (me and my guest had the frose): it was weak and unappetizing. It was a “slushy” that was delivered to us mostly melted and tasting of pink-colored water with a hint of watermelon. Neither name nor my guest finished the drink as well. Two-three sips and that was all.

We had reservations for 2:30. We were seated outside and were told they had no menus and we should look it up on our cell phones. There were two other tables occupied when we were seated, they paid and left. We were given a glass of water and continued to wait for a waitress. Another party was seated and given menus, apparently the waitress knew one of the gentleman because my party listened to her complain about why he didn't call her. The waitress never acknowledged us. After waiting over 30 minutes with no menus, no waitress we walked out. I will never go to this restaurant again and will tell my friends to it as well.

the food here is very bland in comparison to blend on the water. the menu is also very limited. servers take a long time and rarely check up on customers. took forever to even get a menu... it’s ridiculous. Our server was okay once she finally got to us though

I would probably return for appetizers and the drinks only. The Citrus salmon was overcooked and the food was served room temperature. Nice ambiance and aesthetically pleasing just not what I was hoping for.

This was my 2nd time coming back to blend . My first time I totally love it the food and services the drinks everything was amazing. but my 2nd time OH NO !! Our waitres only came to my table twice she was not attentive she forgot our drinks twice and we had order sides but she never bough them. We had to get up twice to look for her it was insane !!!!. But the food was amazing and drinks the people who clean the tables and pick dishes were better than the waitres.

Blend is not relatively close to the Exceptional service it used to be. They’re forgetting orders, I have had to stand up to give my own bill pay in the last two times I’ve visited. No longer excited as I used to be.

Made a reservation for 9:00pm and arrived a few minutes early. Was asked to wait outside while the table was prepared but they didn’t come get us until past 9:30pm and we were seated OUTSIDE - not inside. After being seated we waited 20 minutes to be seen by wait staff. A busboy brought us water then said he would get our waitress and she arrived shortly after. We ordered EVERYTHING upfront because we noticed all the tables were waiting too. Food came out quickly and was great. We finished everything before being seen again and we just ordered dessert to go. Food and ambience were great. Our waitress was kind when we interacted with her and our order was right. It was really disappointing that wait times persisted throughout our entire experience. We probably would have stayed longer and spent more money but it was like pulling teeth to be attended to. I hope they address this because I would like to come back but the long waits and outdoor dining despite reservation for inside put a real damper on the experience. Highly recommend the calamari and pernil pork buns.

The waitress had no care. She didn’t even welcome us. Never asked what we wanted to drink. We had to call her over for everything we needed. When I finally asked her for my drink she served the cup half full and just threw it on the table. Lastly, ordered a medium steak that came completely burnt! Check your bill because they add gratuity without telling you. They just show you the computer with a total.

No persona when approached by servers. Had dishes placed on table for quiet some time and even when the server approached the table and we told her we were done, she still didn’t take away the dishes as if she was waiting for the bidders to do it for her. Server just focused on upselling. Still left her a 20% tip because I am in the industry and know the hard times they’re going thru.
