Blend on Main...a wonderful dining experience in Manasquan. Cozy and relaxed atmosphere, not too crowded and very knowledgeable staff, especially our server Tina. Do not pass up on the Asian calamari and its fun presentation. All our meals were amazing, and we just about managed to save room for the crack waffle and creme brulee.
Love this restaurant.
Food and service were both great.
Everything was wonderful as always!! Amazing food & service & a completely enjoyable evening as Blend never disappoints!!
Great meal and super service. The “big chop” couldn’t be better. Looking forward to going back for the steak. Salads were delicious. Lived in the area for most of my life and never stopped in until last night with my wife. We were both happy to have discovered The Blend.
Food was outstanding as well as the wait staff! Highly recommend
Perfect lighting, soothing music at the right volume.
Excellent service & GREAT food.
BYO makes Blend a five star value!
Chef Lou and staff continue to wow us.
Thank you for an overall fantastic experience.
Oh, by the way, the short ribs were great!
Always a great place staff is awesome.
Excellent dining room, food was terrific, service was very good. If you haven’t been, you should.Great local venue.
The food was outstanding and our server was very efficient and helpful. The guitar player was a nice surprise that added to the ambiance of the evening.
Great food and service
As always, the food is excellent. Our waiter Kyle was awesome. We went this time specifically to try the tasting menu. You will not be disappointed! Thank you again !
We dined on a Tuesday evening at 7 pm for my husbands birthday. It was quite being November . The fried calamari and fried mozzarella were delicious as were the entrees . No complaints and a lot of “this is delicious’ could be heard . Brussel sprouts are amazing with maple syrup and a touch of spicy .. our waitress was welcoming and attentive which helped make our evening a complete success .
I have been to Blend many times. The restaurant, staff, chef never never disappoint Always a special experience!
Service and food was great. Would recommend to friends.
We had a very nice waitress who wasn’t rushing us out to door. Food is always so delicious and we tried a new appetizer from her recommendation. Yummy. Also love that it’s a BYOB.
Good service and atmosphere, food was good except the pork chop which was fatty.
Our first dining experience at Blend on Main to celebrate our anniversary exceeded our expectations. We had a great table in the smaller dining room. Jean, our waitress, was exceptional. Kudos to her professionalism. We started off with the caesar salad. For our main courses we opted for Chef Lou Smith's Fall Specials. The venison and the braised short ribs were prepared to perfection. A real treasure on the dessert menu were the Nutella filled beignets. We look forward to returning to Blend on Main, an "epicurean gem" on Main Street Manasquan.
Best crab cakes ever!!!
Outstanding from the moment we sat down. Food was excellent…. Service was fantastic and the ambiance was great. Will be back!!!
Always a great meal! Italian chopped salad, mashed potatoes and NY strip steak outstanding and don’t forget to have a “Ring Ding” for dessert!!
Always a great experience..food and service the best!
The food was superior and our waitress was very attentive. Definitely a culinary notch above the other restaurants in the area.
The food and the service were outstanding!
i love this restaurant but nothing on the fall menu was speaking to me and i made a mistake with what i ordered… but definitely will still be returning!!
one of the best meals I've had in a very long time! The place was beautiful and service great, I will definitely be going back very soon!!
Excellent meal and service. We ate outside on the sidewalk.
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
Food was in point as always.
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.
The service and food is fantastic here. A very very fair fine dining experience price wise. Slowly becoming regulars
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.
Great restaurant in a cute shore town with outside seating and a great ambiance inside as well
Consistently high quality experience
Hadn’t been to Blend in a while. Glad we made it back
Everything was excellent from start to finish! Food, service
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.
Great French Onion soup to start. Had the butternut squash ravioli- amazing. The guy playing the guitar was a great treat and background. BYOB too, new favorite. GET THERE!
The food was good, there were long gaps in between initial service greeting, ordering, service of appetizers, service of entre and receiving the check.
