The environment was very noisy
The wait was very long, it was not that crowdy, the waitress was not pleasant
I would recommend to a teenager not an adult
It was my anniversary I did indicate on the reservation I thought we were going to highlighted but we weren’t

Hello This was my second time at your establishment. My pernil was not thoroughly heated. Some parts were cold. Also, the food portion could have been a little big bigger. Otherwise, it was a nice place to celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary Cheers!!

Insoportable el bullicio de lugar, imposible mantener una conversación sin tener que elevar el volumen de la voz.
Servicio entre malo y regular, tardaron casi 1 hora en servir los platos
No recomendable

Everything was good, but if you are going to have people outside a mosquito repellent is needed

I was a bit offended that the waitress added a 20 % tip to the bill and we were a party of two. I planned to tip her 25% but got so upset by that especially since the menu stated that party of 6 or more - 20% will be added. I felt like she judged us as if we wouldn’t tip her. Everything else went well other than that

Not the place to go to for a quiet evening out. Ridiculously loud between the music, and children running around. Food was ok but service was slow and there was a fly in my drink!

Place is very nice with good views and great food. It’s busy and staff is hustling getting it done. But they should consider adding a few more personnel to lighten the load and give a bit more relaxed environment. After all customers don’t go to restaurants to eat, they can do that at home. They go out for the experience.

Loved the ambiance. Sat outside, thought it was too loud indoors Food was bland, no taste. Short ribs was not made correctly. My husband didn't like his food at all. Parking is horrible

The food was overall good.

Here's the qualms I had:

- table was sticky and wobbly (ok for regular restaurants but not for the price level of Blend)

- for the love of god MOSQUITOES AND FLIES!!! Purchase insect repellant and spray it before/after you open even in small amounts for non-odor ones. Every 5 seconds I had to swat away a mosquito.

- server was polite but inattentive

The service was OK I can’t complain. I don’t feel the food was worth the cost we spent four hundred dollars and the food was not worth that.

The waitress and staff were very kind. The prices are reasonable and the food punches above its weight. Drinks were great too. (Lots of frozen drinks for the summer). Will definitely be coming back. We were celebrating my sister's graduation and an early Father's Day.

Went to celebrate my gf birthday. Made reservations for 6:45 pm and got there around 6:55, within the 15 minute grace period. We had to wait maybe 10 minutes and our seats were available with no problem. There were people who tried to walk in and ask for a seat and were told it would be an hour and a half wait…so reservations is encouraged I would say. It was packed but we weren’t cluttered next to anyone when we sat. They had large groups as well as people on dates, background music was nice, but low enough to have a dinner convo. Our waitress Vanessa was attentive and on point. Appetizer was great, had the mushroom flatbread. For dinner we had the salmon and steak which was good. My gf ordered dessert and like it. After dinner there’s a little boardwalk where you can see the city across the river and take pics. I would definitely recommend this place and go again

There was no AC when we went which made for a pretty bad experience. It was my fiancé’s birthday and we couldn’t stay for dessert because it was so uncomfortable. When I asked if the AC wasn’t working they said that it was on but there were just too many people. I wish they would have told us, it was much cooler outside. Not sure I would spend a special occasion here again.

I’ve been here quite a few times and it’s been really good my only issue this time was there’s a heat wave in NYC and yet the aircon was off, we were already fanning our selves but they didn’t even notice. Also why put a dress code when it’s not being followed it says no gym attire and no plain white t-shirts and it was exactly what some diners are wearing so don’t put a dress code anymore.

Please accept our sincerest apologies about the air conditioning. The unit is not working as well as it used too but we are working as fast as possible to resolve the problem by adding an additional unit. As far as the dress code, we had suspended it during the beginning of Covid so we have been trying to slowly enforce it again as to not cause inconvenience to those that may not be aware of the change.

Food , drinks and atmosphere was great. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The only thing wrong was the air conditioning was broken and it was very uncomfortable, the temperature was 92 degrees that day. The manager should have informed us of this situation.
