Could not believe the sound levels
reached in this new, waterfront hot spot. Thank heaven you can choose to eat outside on a beautiful waterfront deck where you can hear yourself talk. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and even though people were standing in line to get in, no one rushed us at all. Waitress was very friendly and helpful and recommended wonderful entrees. The Mac N Cheese appetizer made with pepper jack cheese was awesome and the lamb shank and skirt skate main courses were big hits. I will be back to sample more of their menu and the prices are really moderate($15-$23 entrees)"

Kayla provided excellent service
and education about Latin American food. She added a lot to our dining experience"

made a reservation but for the
wrong location. Instead of the near the LIC boardwalk like i had wanted, I made a reservation for the other Blend inside LIC. No problem at all. I called and told them my situation and they gladly accommodated me. Great place, young and hip. Lots of groups celebrating various special occasions. Appetizer menu was great. Dinner was great. Try the skirt steak. Mojitos were made a little sweet but still very good. Menus light up and obviously every woman loves taking fun pics at nice restaurants. That was a winner. Nice bar scene. Nothing can compare to the view of course. Great city view from inside and outside the restaurant. Overall 4.5 out of 5."

Blend is my go-to place when I
want to grab a quick bite and a good drink. This time around, we went to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Granted, our visit was on a Monday night. So, we basically had the place to ourselves. The waitress went above and beyond to take care of us. The highlight of our night was when my daughter was surprised with her b'day cake. Thanks for accommodating us and for giving her such a great experience!"

Went here for a birthday dinner
and the staff were very accomodating to my last minute changes. The ambiance was very nice. The food was great however the feedback I got from my guests was that the portions were too small particularly for a Latin restaurant. "

Nice restaurant with a nice menu
at reasonable pricing. Table service was excellent and very helpful. Got the story behind the restaurant as well. The place where the restaurant is situated is not very nice but it was very friendly. Strangely enough my booking through open twble didn't go through to the restaurant but they sorted a tavle very quickly anyway so it was absolutely no problem."

Me & my boyfriend came here to
celebrate Valentine's weekend. It's a small place however it was very cozy & well decorated . Drinks were amazing and the food was very flavorful and well prepared. I had the churrasco with rice & beans, it was delicious I ate everything!!!! My boyfriend had the ropa vieja with rice & beans and it was also delightful. For appetizer we had the chicken mofongo which we shared, it was very good we loved it!!! They had Spanish music playing in the background which was nice. The service was good. The only not so good thing I have to say was there were multiple groups celebrating birthdays which were way too loud... It was hard at times to have a conversation but after they left it was great!!!"

Small and energetic...food was
tasty. Sangria was a little weak but delicious. Nice place for a girls night!"
Dined on 2/1/2014
I came for my birthday, overall
had a good time, the food was good and so were the drinks. The only complaint and others had the same one is that they had a really loud, obnoxious group and no one ever said anything to them, and other patrons were looking at them. So distracting and annoying!!"
Dined on 1/24/2014
THE DRINKS WERE PERFECTLY BLENDED.
THE MENU TEASED YOUR SENSES. THE FOOD MORE THAN SATISFIED YOUR TASTE BUDS. THE COFFEE AND PUDDING WAS AN EXCLAMATION POINT TO THE WHOLE DINNER EXPERIENCE. BY THE WAY, THE SERVICE WAS THEIR WHEN NEEDED."

I have been interested in going to
this restaurant for months now. I finally got the chance to go and I fell in love with it. Everything was great, definitely a place you want to go for like a date, or family time. I am definitely returning, next stop. Blend on the water!"

Food was great , the only upside
down the waitress could of been more pleasant. Her attitude was not very friendly , Otherwise the food was good."

The food was delicious and the
service was really great. I will definitely go back soon."

Empanada sampler was excellent.
Fillings in each of the empanadas were delicious. My boyfriend and I had the pernil and arroz con pollo and both dishes were delicious! Service was great and staff is very friendly. Definitely will go back!"

If you have the chance to try the
Chefs Special go for it! It was probably the best thing i tasted that day.... Drinks were amazing and we even got to meet the chef. Cant wait for the new restaurant to open"

I Have always been a fan of
blend.. But now that Chef Kelvin is apart of there team i can not wait to see what he has in store. I had to try his Crispy Sopes. The flavor was insane. I wanted to order another one thats how good it was! Please open up Blend on the Water asap. So everyone can try his amazing food! Thank you!"
Dined on 10/8/2013
Had a wonderful meal here last
week with my husband. Chef Kelvin came out and said hello to our table and even let us try one of the new menu items they're working on. He's so wonderful. The new Management/Staff is AMAZING. After our first visit we didn't think we'd be coming back, but this visit left a wonderful experience ! Totally love that the empanadas are the only hot buns in the kitchen too!"
Dined on 10/5/2013
Have been to blend several times
and food is was great. The food is even better now that chef Kelvin has joined Blend. Looking forward to the opening of the new location."
Dined on 10/4/2013
The food is consistently fresh and
delicious. The empanadas are "to die for". The empanadas sampler is a great value. The drinks are flavourful & well priced. You really can't go wrong with The Blend. Great neighborhood gem."
Dined on 9/4/2013
I love coming to Blend. It is a
quiet spot which is nice because you can have an intimate dinner, but still big enough to not feel cramped. I love the tacos they make. They are so fresh. I always order the skirt steak which is delicious and the flan is really food too!"
Dined on 8/14/2013
Menu is kind of limited but what
they have is pretty good. The blend of Spanish food and twist on some traditional plates is very welcome. Good food and great flow in restaurant."
Dined on 8/10/2013
Best little Latin Fusion spot in
LIC! Great decorum and vibe. Drinks were good as well."
Dined on 7/27/2013
Walking into Blend - the
atmosphere strikes you. This is a fun and lively place without being deafening. YOu just know the food and the drinks are going to add to that easy going Latin feel. THe wait staff were all genuine and awesome. The mojitos were very good and the food tasted real and was hot (fresh), but just don't think its classic fine dining. It's a casual menu, in a great neighborhood with the major bonus of parking availability. I really recommend this spot as a fun place to hang with friends for drinks and fun foods, or someone special. Would def return."
Dined on 7/19/2013
Had a great meal at Blend. The
calamari with plantains was delicious, also had an empanada, guacamole, pernil and yucca. It was all good, though the pork was not quite as good as I wanted it to be. Drinks were very reasonably priced. All in all a good meal and I definitely will return."
Dined on 6/22/2013
The tapas were a nice blend of
Central American and Caribbean dishes. I only wish there were more green vegetables but unfortunately that is a part of our culture! I'd like to go back and check out the brunch. The mojitos were amazing."

This is my second time going to
Blend. The place is not that big to begin with. Yet, they should have reservations down pat. The girl who was taking care of reservations had us waiting by the bar (w/ no more chairs available) for a good 15 mintues until "our" table cleared when there was more than enough empty tables for us to seat in and have dinner. We had a 8:30 p.m. A party of 13 people got seated before us (3 ppl)- huh? Blend really needs to get it together with the seating arrangements. The first time I went there, there was also a problem with gettig a table. I cannot complain about the food. The food was good but even if the food is good, if the service is bad, you really think twice about going back."
Dined on 4/6/2013
Food was good, service was okay.
Been to Blend twice I suppose you should come to eat early because at 8 pm they had run out of yellow rice and the second time they had no flan or chocolate cake and that was at 7pm. But overall I recommend the restaurant if you want good Latin food and I will be going back."
Dined on 2/15/2013
Neighborhood Gem! Great latin
cuisine with wonderful happy hour specials! Mofongo absolutley delish! This is a restaurant that will pleasantly surprise you."

Food was good. Small desert
selection, I expected more. However, service excellent."

If you love Pernil as much as I do
you must go to Blend!"
Dined on 12/8/2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner
at Blend. The atmosphere was quaint and quiet. The food was authentic Lating Fusion; the ultimate comfort food. Can't wait to go back and try other dishes. The Service was excellent, as well."
Dined on 8/3/2012
Good overall, but very slow bar
and inconsistent cocktails."
Dined on 5/25/2012
We arrived to find that despite
our reservation, there was no table. However, the manager sent us to the bar for a round of free drinks, and by then our table was ready. The food was AMAZING! We had a few appetizers and then shared all of our entrees because we couldn't commit to one dish each. Definitely try the appetizer sampler, the corn, the green plantain mash, for entrees we had paella, arroz con pollo - everything was so good. My dad called the manager over twice to tell him how wonderful the food was. And he is a tough crowd."
Dined on 5/13/2012
The Sangria was warm, the
appitizers were greasy. The cuban sandwich was good but also greasy. The staff was freindly. The food was more like your Midtown all night food joint rather than the quality restaurant that is portrayed. There are some really good restaurants in the area, this one will need to step up. The decor was really nice but everything else did not coordinate with what the restaurant looked like. The bar selection was horrible, I ordered a Makers Mark which they did not have and had to reselect from a shuffle of bottles. The waiters were not uniform, one was wearing baggy jeans and sneakers. I left feeling like I threw my money away...Thank goodness we had only appetizers and drinks."
Dined on 4/13/2012
Served uncook rice, better off
going to your local spanish restaurant for a juice steak & onions for $8 well worth it then to eat blends steak. White sangria was amazing barely any alcohol though."
