    Don't let the strip mall location put you off this great spot. They make some great specialty martinis and great food. My date and I had a great meal, everything was just right from start to finish. Also the live music was fantastic and really helped make it a special experience. I'm looking forward to coming again soon.

    We arrived during a snowstorm to a sparse crowd. It was very cozy with the swirling snow outside. I started with the Frise Salad and my partner the shrimp on pita with hummus. Both are spectacular. I'm not a salad eater, but the Frise is the best I've ever had. She had the branzini special, which she loved, and I tried the short ribs. Melt-in-your -mouth flavorful and so comforting on a blizzard night! Dessert was a shared chocolate bombshell of mousse and cookie crust under a dark chocolate sauce. Again, delicious! This night was a warm and luscious private experience. Other nights it is highly energetic and crowded with appreciative patrons. We love it, and can't wait to go back!

    Took my daughter there last minute as Mirabelle was booked for a private party got a quick reservation using open table when we got to Blonde we were seated immediately tables are a little too close together for my taste and the restaurant is a little noisy however I think that was due to it being full happily that was our biggest complaint service was excellent and the food was delicious we elected to have various appetizers in lieu of a main course and out of the 6 we ordered 5 were great the crab cakes were just ok overall it was a wonderful experience I will definitely return and I recommend it to anyone

    Went to Blond for the first time during restaurant week. Waitress was great, when I was undecided about which wine to order, she brought me a taste. There was a rather large group with lots of kids next to us, celebrating a birthday, singing and walking around. They should have been at Applebee's :) Potato soup and pork loin were great. I had a pear tart for dessert that was good, not great. I would definitely go back.

    It was a special occasion and I had invited close friends and family. We don't go out to eat that much anymore due to the high prices and low quality of most restaurants. I had heard good things about Blond, however, and thought we would give it a try. Although there were those in the party that enjoyed their entrees, there were many of us who were not impressed. I thought the soup and salad was really good. My entree left much to be desired. The desserts were only fair, so on the whole, not impressed.

    Blond has been my favorite restaurant since my first visit! I have never been let down here. The food is nothing short of perfection and the service is always top notch. You won't be disappointed with the menu or the service. The tilapia over risotto is to die for!!!! Overall it is not a huge restaurant, so I recommend making a reservation.

    I've been to Blond several times over the past years and I was surprised to see how noisy it was this past Friday. We could not even hear the live music. I would recommend going on a weeknight or at 9pm or later on weekends if you want to be able to hold a conversation with your company. The food was good, especially the fried calamari, but I would stay away from the duck tacos. A better wine selection would be appreciated.

  • Anniversary Dinner

    Dined on 8/15/2013
    We dined here at a local favorite for our 48th wedding anniversary, and were delighted to discover that a singer/guitarist was providing entertainment on a Thursday evening; the music was a pleasant backdrop for our special occasion, and we enjoyed Renee's beautiful voice and repertoire of music. The prix-fixe menu had been enlarged from our previous visits, and we had difficulty choosing from the wonderful selections. My husband had mah-mahi, and I had tilapia; both were beautifully prepared and delicious. We declined the soup, but enjoyed the salads and dessert immensely. Our server, Michelle, was excellent, as was the busgirl, Jessica. They both were professional and amazingly efficient despite the number of diners they serviced. Superb!

    We dined here many years ago and found alot to be desired then we decided to give it another try due to new reviews we read. Night and day the menu has so many more choices and the food is very well prepared. It was a pleasant surprise now at least we have another choice in Mt. Sinai which is a "good" restaurant starved town. The only problem we have is the wine prices are too high. We buy alot of wine and expect to pay more at a restaurant but if you know your prices these are way too highfor the brands.

    We enjoyed our night at Blond. Fresh crab cakes started our meal plus my strawberry martini was perfect! My risotto was a litte on the cheesy side but delicious nonetheless, paired with shrimp that were cooked perfectly! My husband had veal which was cooked nicely although it did lack some flavor. Service was great & ambiance was relaxing! Would definitely recommend to a friend!!

    Loved the food and the chocolate martini I had. The problem was that it took 3 full hours from starters to dessert. It was very crowded and very noisy. Not sure why it took so long. They should have more staff or not book so many at the same time.

    Went for my birthday with 3 others in the party. The food was so delicious. Service was excellent. all the food ordered was excellent. Notables were the pear martinis..which hit the spot, pork belly appetizer, and fried calamari with a sweet and spicy Thai chili sauce. We also ordered duck breast risotto, diver scallops with a delicious risotto, double stuffed pork chops and a pasta dish with beef shortrib bolongese sauce. All excellent. For dessert share the chocolate peanut butter fondue. All in all a really enjoyable night.

    Blond is a wonderful restaurant with outstanding food, wine, and excellent and friendly service - one of the the best places around and highly recommended by everyone I know - its a true gem, its one the very few restaurants around that truly has amazing food and its weekday pre-fix 3 course deal is a bargain.

    We went to Blond for the first time during restaurant week, the food good and the service was excellent. The place is a rip off, a 3 course pre-fixe for 27.99 (only 3 choices at that price, everything else has a supplement), they typically have a 3 course pre-fixe for 36.99 outside of restaurant week. We ordered our 3 courses with a $14 supplement each. When leaving, they have their typical 3 course menu posted outside, it was the same appetizers and entrees we just had for $6 less. So much for "Restaurant Week", we won't be back, to many excellent restaurants to spend my money in.

    This is my favorite place to dine. The chef makes a great effort to present really good food in appropriate portions. I am not a fan of the enormous portions usually found in most Long Island restaurants. It was nice to see some California wines on the wine list and the cocktails are great! The dining room is very pleasant with a sophisticated urban feel. Service moves smoothly and I had no complaints about that. Prices may be a bit high for some but, considering the whole experience, it is well worth it.

    can't say enough about the food. The appetizers were amazing from the calamari to the scallops and the tuna tar-tar. We all had the beef which was outstanding--seasoned to perfection and tender. For dessert we all had the chocolate mousse cake which was to die for. To top it off the service was wonderful -- they tried to accommodate all our requests.

    Food is very good, however wine selections resulted in making several choices because they did not have selections from their wine list. All things considered, it is a bit overpriced for the experience. $165 per couple with 1 drink, 1 moderately priced bottle of wine. Two of the dinners came from the Prix Fix menu which is $36.
