Fare Blend reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Quite a Surprise!

    Dined on 11/13/2013
    Did some research and was disappointed to see that they only rated a 69% at one site. Decided to try it and was floored!!! I was greeted by name at the door and shown to my table. Chef Dapo came out and introduced himself and we had a lovely conversation. We didn't order anything off the menu, rather we allowed Dapo to choose what we had. After some specific questions regarding spiciness levels, our 5 course meal was delivered to the table over the next 2 hours and it was heaven! I can't rave about this place enough. I have been telling all my friends about this restaurant!

    We went for our 18th anniversary dinner. The food was amazing and the owners were very nice and the service was excellent. We would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a different dining experience.

    For my husband's 60th birthday I researched online and found the Fare Blend for the jazz music.The owner/host initially went to turn us away, telling us we needed a reservation. I explained that I had made it online through Open Table and the man apologized and let us in. We later found that the restaurant is always locked to create the feeling of exclusivity. We discovered there are 2 food price options of either $79.00 or $89.00. I was absolutely shocked because the prices I reviewed online were around $35/head. There was an additional option of a "Jazz Sampler" at $45. For a couple you will pay over $200 for dinner, get the most ridiculously small meal and have almost no live jazz time. We were so very, very disappointed.

    Went on a Friday night with my wife and were pleased with the overall experience. The owners are always there and are the ones doing the impeccable service and cooking. The food was truly delicious and the chef/owner will accommodate most specific requests. The restaurant is located in a beautifully renovated house. I was sad to see only 4 other dinners while we were there from 1945 to 2300. We'll definitely visit again.

  • A unique gem

    This is a restaurant you must go to. They have transformed a tired old building into a chic and sophisticated restaurant with a lovely ambience. The food is an unusual blend of african influences which makes for great food with subtle flavours. My advice - forget the menu and go with what the maitre d' recommends - you will have a wonderful time experiencing things you might not have ordered, but will end up loving.

    We all loved our experience, the food, the service and the entertainment of this place were beyond our expectations. The West African food was so tasty and different, I would definitely return to try more dishes and listen to the lovely jazz that was playing all night. It wasn't too loud that we couldn't talk at the same time but very enjoyable background sounds (hats off to the players). First time I've tried plantains and it wouldn't be the last. The seafood dish was delish. The staff bent over backwards and offered upscale service. The newly opened this past Christmas restaurant, was a beautiful renovated house. Your friends and family will thank you for recommending this special place - enjoy!

    Overall we enjoyed our experience at Fare Blend because the owner and GM are remarkable and hospitable people. As we were the only guests on a Friday evening (!), the service was outstanding. Although the menus only contained table d'hotes, there was some flexibility to our preferences. The African spices made some dishes too spicy but they were quickly replaced with another option. One downfall about the concept of table d'hotes is that one is more or less forced to have a three-course meal and pay $80-$90 per person for the food alone. This leaves those with smaller appetites either on the sidelines or with a large take-out container at te end of the meal.

    Could not have had a better evening- the staff were so VERY warm and friendly; they bent over backwards to ensure our absolutely satisfaction. Say hello to Dapo for me when you go, he will not disappoint!
