    Dined on 9/27/2014
    This was I first time eating at Blond and definitely will return . The calamari was not overly coated and were very tender . Three of us had the Chilean Sea Bass over white beans,broccoli and garlic cream sauce ( which was not overly done).Our other dinner guest had the Almond crusted Mahi Mahi over spinach which he said was very good . Our server Michelle was pleasant and very attentive . The only negative, was we all thought our wines were a short pour.

    Recently went to Blonde to celebrate my husband's birthday. Sunday thru Thursday they offer a deal that when you order an entree you get soup, salad and dessert. The food was delicious! The soup was a corn chowder that was excellent and had some heat. You were able to choose from one of three salads on the menu and didn't just get a standard salad for the deal. It too was excellent. I had the grilled shrimp with risotto and would definitely recommend it. My husband had the duck and found it a little salty. My son loved his organic chicken dish. The desserts were delicious but small, but after all that food we were hardly able to eat it anyway. We have always enjoyed Blonde and have never had a bad meal there. Be back for my bday shortly.

    Had a fabulous dinner with friends recently. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their appetizers, entrees, and wow, what terrific desserts. The service was very good, the food was outstanding, but we really enjoyed being able to converse and hear what others were saying. All of us decided this is our new favorite restaurant!

    You don't expect a good restaurant to be in a strip mall. This place will surprise you. Excellent service, meals were perfect, with the exception of desert, which was a fondue, not served hot enough. We sent it back, and they returned it the same way. We told them, but nothing was done. That was the 5th star. Very nice dining room, good atmosphere, easy to have a conversation. We will go back, but no fondue.

    I came to Blond to take my Mother out for her Birthday it was a special occasion, I have eaten at this restaurant about two years ago and have been raving about it since. The first time I ate here I had 5 hr braised short ribs, was looking forward to it again, viewed the menu on the website prior to returning. Online braised short ribs are still on the menu at the restaurant on the menu it has been taken off. The service was great but the food was horrible. No flavor, I expected more. The salmon was bland, and I ordered a well done steak, that came out med-rare. I would have enjoyed salmon from Fridays instead. I thought everyone would have enjoyed themselves from my last experience instead everyone was disappointed. Worst experience ever.

    It's cliche to say, but The food is a feast for the era as well as the palette. We had the gnocchi appetizer and shrimp with hummus appetizer, and the specials and regular menu items were fantastic! Plated beautifully and simply, not skimpy portions, delectable desserts (creme brule trio!!!!). Such a great dinner and we will definitely be back!

    I moved from Long Island two years ago, and one of the places I missed most was Blond. I had the opportunity to dine there again on a recent trip, and Blond was as good as ever. The menu is excellent, and the dinners came with soup, salad, and dessert, making Blond an even better value. The service is the best of any restaurant on Long Island.

    This is really not much more than a nice bar with restaurant - perhaps a notch above but not quite what up to what other reviewers raved about. The decor was nice but the noise level was a bit overwhelming with the dining room at near capacity and the wait staff stretched thin. My appetizer was excellent - grilled shrimp over hummus on pita triangles. The main course, herb crusted tilapia, was dry and overcooked though flavorful - perhpas it sat a bit too long waiting for the servers to pick it up from the kitchen. And frankly, the cheesecake just missed though the presentation was nice. Maybe this was just an off night

    We were two people interested in a place we could have good dining and still converse so we stated up front to staff that we wanted leisurely pace which they respected. Calamari appetizer was not overly breaded, tender, tangy sweet with mild asian seasoning. Grouper mounted on mushroom risotto was outstanding with nuances of truffle oil. It was a generous potion and well presented.

WE DO LIKE THE RESTAURANT, BUT WE FEEL THAT WE WANT EVERYONE WE ARE WITH TO BE SATISFIED. WE EAT OUT OFTEN AND IT IS UNUSAL FOR PEOPLE TO COMPLAIN THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH TO EAT.

    No matter when we dine here we always leave feeling like we have gotten our money's worth and had a wonderful meal to boot. If this restaurant were located in the Village of Port Jefferson, instead of in a strip mall in Miller Place, it would be jam packed all the time. You can't beat the price fix options nor the wine selection. The chef serves absolutely delicious food! It is one of our favorite LI restaurants.

    The meal started with excellent appetizers. I had the pork belly, it was seriously great. The entree was a wonderfully grilled skirt steak with seriously tasty horseradish whipped potatoes and string beans. All delicious. We made room for dessert and enjoyed the entire meal. Make time and visit this great gem in Miller Place.

    After all these years, Blond is still an amazing food experience. I had not visited in some time and was unsure it would still be as good as I recalled. The frisee salad was as great as I remember. My date and I split the oysters on half shell and the frisee salad. Our server divided up the salad for us on two plates without us asking. Our drinks were made very well and we received them at our table in a very reasonable time, especially for a busy Saturday night. My date and I both had the Mahi Mahi with spinach - very good, but the fish was just slightly overcooked. Their menu was substantial and had a great variety of dishes. The only negative I could really point out is that our bus boy was a little too eager; but can't wait to go back.

    Good food and nice atmosphere. Was there on a Thursday in March and it seemed like they didn't think it would be busy so they sent a server home. Our waitress was overwhelmed. 20 min for drinks is a bit much. I would still go back because it is a great spot. Please don't let my review dissuade you. If you haven't been, GO.

    The chef is truly amazing, we asked for the chefs tasting menu and we were both pleasantly surprised. The presentation of the food was beautiful and I dine out at least once a month at upscale restaurants but can honestly say the food was hands down the best at Blond. the tuna tartar to the lamb chop to the other amazing creations, everything was cooked spot on. Bravo!!! The chef is amazing and everything was delicious, we will be back there for sure.

    Have been coming here since the restaurant opened. It is hard to hear across the table when the place is full. They definitely need sound buffers. Menu has recently changed somewhat with nice additional choices. The food though, was surprisingly not up to the standards that we have come to know from Blond and it took a very long time for our food to arrive. We are hoping this was just an overly crowded and 'off' nite for a routinely excellent restaurant.

    Me and my boyfriend went here for the second time and it was just as wonderful as the first. They make the best chicken florentine soup ever! I mean ever! Although it was not available this time( the soup of the day changes ) we had creamy tomato. The chef makes some killer soups and this one was amazing . The menu has a mix of chicken, beef, seafood and lamb. They have various specials during the week which is great to save money. The ambience is relaxed. Dimly lit and small dining area. The music is a an Afro- jazz/ lounge mix which creates a soothing evening with a slight pop. The food seriously though is amazing. This is a hidden gem and the chef picked the right field.hats off to him and the staff at blond. They have not failed us yet!

    My fiance and I tried out Blonde on Valentines day weekend Saturday. The service was very good as well as the look of the restaurant. It was a nice date night without that stuffy feeling, very relaxed and friendly. The bread was great as well as the cocktails and my dinner choice of veal. My only negatives would be the size of the menus compared to the table size. The menu was very large and heavy and heard to place on the table. Also the dessert we had of the trio of creme brulee while very good was cold. Overall we will reurn to the restaurant and would recomend to friends.
