My husband, myself, our 2 teen girls & my in-laws went for my fathers in laws birthday dinner. Everything was absolutely outstanding(even both girls agreed). The staff, food, decor & service were all absolutely terrific. You won’t be disappointed!!
We love that you are happy when you visit. Thank you for the praise
Food is always amazing and portions are large! It was a perfect evening.
We loved the ambience and food. My boyfriend loved the steak too. There was a slight draft and I asked the hostess to close the door a bit, I was delighted when she went straight away and closed it. Very good service overall. Not too loud either, good acoustics.
We are happy you were happy. Thank you for taking the time to write. best.
enjoyed the Blend very much, had a reservation and was seated fast. the waitress was awesome and always came over to check on us.noise level is a bit high,but it was also busy. food was spectacular,i shook the owners hand on the way out the door and said it was great. we are local,so we will be back.
Thanks for the visit. We will be sure to share your review with the staff. See you soon.
My husband and I enjoyed our dining experience and will be back with friends. Service was one great. Our appetizer came out faster then I expected, everything was very tasty (crab cake, calamari and lobster bisque). For our main course we both ordered specials - mushroom/ lobster and short ribs. My husband said was one of the best short rib dishes he has had.
so glad you were pleased. It is why we do what we do. We are blessed to have customers like you. Thank you.
This is our favorite place to eat. We had a family dinner there on Sat night. The place was crowded...our food was on time and delicious! No complaints, only praise.
I still miss the ribeye on the menu!!
I will put that Ribeye on our April menu!! for you! maybe with chimichurri & duck fat fried fingerling potato ??
Amazing difference since Gordon Ramsey was here , great atmosphere and food was awsome
We definitely appreciate the words...we will be sure to tell him.
Service was excellent- food is always good. Enjoyed the re-decorated atmosphere
Will visit again
The food here is always delicious and creative. Highly recommend the Farm Salad! Never had a salad like this one. EXCELLENT
Typical Friday night dining. Get decor, enticing menu, and byob.
Some of the dishes came out with inconsistent temperatures. Appetizers were the highlight with interesting presentations and flavors.
Delicious food. I had the Duck Duck first time it was delicious. This time I had salmon with lentils. Very tasty indeed. Will return.
duck duck = good good! Thanks for the visit...see you soon
Still getting used to the new menu and, while I miss some of my old favorites (shrimp and grits), there are many great choices, beautifully presented and graciously served. Always will be a go to for me.
Excellent meal and service, Highly recommend !
Made a reservation assuming that I would be seated in the restaurant but my table ended up being in the breakfast cafe seating area due to an event that was in the main lounge. I should have been told as I would’ve made other plans. Food was good however.
We enjoyed returning to Blend on Main especially after watching Gordon Ramsey's show on the make over. Did not note much difference. Do not like the smaller menu. Not many options, but over all we enjoyed it.
Blend on Main has been one of our favorites since they opened. On this occaision, there were 5 of us for dinner. All superb meals. The halibut, Tuna special, vegan entre, stuffed Chicken were cooked perfectly. Great place to go, although it is getting more difficult to get reservations since they revised their menu and refreshed the interior.
Went to Blend on mmMain for the first time since it's been revamped. Service was excellent, the place looks beautiful, and the food was good. I was a little disappointed that my halibut came with practically nothing, they said it was Mediterranean vegetables, but it actually was just little pickles and a few cherry tomatoes. The Halibut itself was excellent. My husband's pork chop was good not great a little dry. However, I would absolutely recommend this restaurant . Also, the salads and peach cobbler were great. My husband had the Caesar and I had the special.
Party of 11, good food, ambience and service.
Wonderful food, wonderful ambiance, great service. My favorite restaurant at the shore.
Blend has always had great food. With recent improvements like noise reduction pads and an upgrade to the interior, it’s even better now. Also, recent changes to the menu, which was overdue, were a welcome sight. You can’t go wrong here. The octopus and shrimp small plate appetizer was outstanding. Everyone raved about the food. The entrees we had were salmon, the big chop and NY strip steak. All done to perfection and delicious. And, it’s a BYOB. Don’t miss going to Blend. You’ll love it.
They were having a meeting in dining room so had us sit in lunch room. It was cold and service was slow due to the meeting.
Our portions were very small and definitely expensive for their size. There were 3 shrimp and 2 scallops on risotto for $30. We asked that the salmon be cooked thoroughly and even after it was sent back it came out quite undercooked. This was removed from the bill so they did the right thing. Although the food was tasty I would prefer to go to a restaurant where the portions aren’t so obviously skimpy.
The menu was not as appealing to me as it had been in the summer. Sunday's menu seemed to mirror those of very traditional restaurants. During our summer visit, I thought there was more innovative dishes. We will be back because I think the restaurant is comfortable and welcoming. Anyway, I will come for the pretzel rolls!
Party of four - sat near the fireplace it was very cozy. Two of us had chicken rollatini which was crispy and delicious, another salmon (very good) and finally shrimp over grits. Server (Jocelyn?) was very friendly and attentive. Will come back to try lunch.
Food was excellent. service (and not necessarily wait staff) was poor. The entire experience was not fine
We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Food was outstanding. The server gave us a lot of attention. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The team and Darren our server was amazing as always, Chef Lou came out to make sure all our meals met our satisfaction and really took pride in knowing the night was a great experience. We have been coming to Blend for many years and have never been disappointed.
Our waitress was amazing. Great suggestions, readily available, extremely courteous. I wish I remembered her name. ( Tall, dark hair.}
Appetizers were amazing...burata salad, crab cake. Loved the pretzel rolls.
1st time dining here & it was wonderful! I felt very relaxed and comfortable and able to enjoy my meal and not feel rushed. Me and my husband had a date night and we had the Caesar salad, scallop appetizer, filet mignon & the creme brûlée. Everything was outstanding! I will definitely be back!
Celebrated my wives birthday with family, sat next to the fireplace nice and cozy, the waiter was helpful and attentive with good knowledge of the menu items. The food was excellent, delivered together, warm and looking nicely styled. We will be back, it's now my local go to place especially during the week.
This was our first visit to Blend on Main. The food was outstanding although a bit pricey. Nice atmosphere although when the restaurant filled up it was quite loud.
We will definitely consider going back again.
Such a wonderful experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the food service and ambiance!
Blend has always been my favorite restaurant. So this time did not disappoint. We love the changes to the decor and as always, the food was top notch- from the spicy calamari to the halibut to the delicious donuts. All of the staff was very friendly and our waitress was attentive.
We can’t wait to go back :)
We didn't know when we made the reservation that the restaurant was recently featured on To Hell and Back with Gordan Ramsey but we were happy to learn soon after when I googled for reviews. We then watched the episode before we went. :) I was happy to see a hostess stand in a vestibule just outside the dining area...really is a nice feature and they're lucky to have that space! We were seated at a granite table w/really comfy velour chairs right next to the fireplace...a surprise and really appreciated b/c it was a bitter cold night. I love a restaurant with a fireplace. Our waiter came over and opened our bottle of wine and poured the glass for us. He went over the specials and left us along for the perfect amount of time. I hate to be rushed...it happens a lot in restaurants that do not have a bar or liquor license (common in NJ) The bread was a take on pretzels and it was served w/a raspberry mustard sauce on the side..pretty good! I ordered the scallop appetizer and halibut for a main dish. The scallops were cooked perfeclty, they could have been served a little hotter. (I love my food served HOT!) but they were very warm and obviously just cooked. The Halibut was cooked perfectly and served hot...I LOVE that it wasn't over seasoned w/salt or any other spices..just really nice. My partner ordered the calimari and filet mignon for a main dish. Both were cooked perfectly...especially the filet. The only suggestion I'd like to make is to ease up on the salt for both...please! We ordered the donut w/chocolate sauce. The outside of the donut had a crispy texture which I enjoyed, I thought the inside could have been cooked 30 seconds longer. I asked for a small bowl of ice cream b/c that's what made it all work together imo. Our waiter was attentive and other staff were helpful when he was with other tables. I would say to stay on top of training and keep it a priority b/c the restaurant is beautiful. Best of luck!
We love this place! We live within blocks of it and feel so lucky to have a wonderful restaurant in our town. Everyone we bring here loves it! We have been averaging 2 weekends a month and we have never had a meal that disappoints us.
The duck is divine, as are the crab cakes. I do miss the 18 oz ribeye since chef Ramsey changed the menu. Hope at some point they bring it back!
The added bonus is the extreme cleanliness of the entire restaurant.
This place is upscale and at the same time very homey and comfortable.
You have to try the desserts they are awesome.
Delicious food as usual! New decor is gorgeous!!!
Crab cakes were outstanding. Looking forward to going back.
We were put in the side room which I knew only as a breakfast/lunch place. We had no problem waiting 45 min for a 6 top in main restaurant. Great experience and service and appreciated the accommodation...... we were leaving if had to be in the side room which has zero atmosphere and should not even be considered part of Blend when you reserve.
We have been to the blend many times and tonight we were disappointed. We were placed in a small room with a private party of 20. We should have been informed at the time of the reservation. Instead 3 tables were placed in the room. It was unfair for the private party and the other guests in the room. It felt like a money grab. It was a very bad business decision on the part of management
Overall Excellent! great atmosphere, service was outstanding. We had the Calamari appetizer, Duck, Duck and Victorious Halibut for entrees, all were very good, I think the halibut was a better dish that the Duck though. We'll definitely return to enjoy the other entrees!
