Blend on Main is a wonderful dining experience and certainly worth going to and returning to. This was my second visit there in a couple of months and it did not disappoint. The service was amazing and attentive without being overbearing. We started with the California flatbread .. delicious for sharing and the crispy mozzarella also pretty good. The star of the night was the "big chop" two perfectly cooked chops served with a sauce, amazing. The halibut was equally delicious served with broccoli rabe and crispy potato croquette. To round off the meal there was creme brulee smooth and delicate. Everything was wonderfully presented and prepared. Manhattan high end quality in Manasquan. Thank you crew

A terrific experience from app thru dinner. Shared the calamari app, enjoyed the butternut squash ravioli complimented with grilled shrimp. Our server was spot on and Blend provided a great overall experience.

Ate outdoors today, which reflects my comments on noise and ambience. Menu has been simplified and the kitchen was off today. I had the duck which was overly dry. My companion had the sample which was supposed to have a maple sauce and tasted like it came out of the salamander without any sauce and maple flavor. Chef Lou’s got to do better at supervising his kitchen.

It was my wife’s birthday and everything was perfect. We have been there before and this was my wife’s choose to celebrate her 65th with family. From the hostess, to our waitress and servers and the musician, they were all fantastic. We are looking forward to trying their brunch soon.

Our experience at Blend was very half-and-half. Certain aspects were great but there was a “but” to each dish.

The shrimp + longhots were delicious, but we only had two pieces of shrimp. When it’s named in the $15 starter, I’d expect more.

My main (2 crab cakes) was enjoyable (I would have been extremely disappointed with only 1 at $34), but my partner didn’t enjoy his pork chops at all. The meat wasn’t cooked to his requested temperature, and it was overall extremely sweet (some sort of apple glaze?). He had two bites.

There are other dishes I’d like to try, but I’d go back wary. The dining area is beautiful, and our waiter was lovely and understanding.

V good food service and accommodations. A first pick when we want to dine out. I’d get rid of the guitar player tho- while he’s a great musician, it’s too much nose in an already very loud room.

Waiter Noah excellent. He definitely add a nice touch to our dinner experience. Aden our bus boy was a charming young fellow.
In times of restaurants having limited help, we were much appreciated with the service we got.
The food is always excellent.
One would be hard pressed to find a “better”restaurant in the area. There are a few in the area that may be as equally as good, but better not so sure.
Everyone to their on opinion.
I would highly recommend.

The food at this place is extra great, but plan on spending your entire evening there because of the service ….the seating is very uncomfortable outside and when I asked to be moved inside I was put in the peach pit with a different kind of super uncomfortable chair, so it’s bring your own cushion, bring your own straw, but I would go back making sure these issues were addressed because the food is worth it

Great meal. Had a special tuna tower appetizer that was delicious. Ordered the strip steak special with blue cheese and wife orders the halibut. Both meals were great. My steak was a little under cooked for my liking but that may have been my mistake. Overall it’s a great restaurant. Steaks are a little pricey and al a cart so have to mindful of that
