Ate dinner @ 8:00 pm on a Wednesday night, so not crowded. That's good for Omicron, but entire staff was not masked. Waitress was friendly and attentive, but upsold us a baguette that was a total waste. Food was good, but not over the top. Blend is BYOB, but this is nowhere mentioned on their website. Space is beautiful and ambience relaxed and comfortable. We'll be back, but it doesn't rise to 5-stars.

My husband and I went here for my birthday, it was so delicious. My dinner was the most tasty dish I have ever tasted. Salmon teriyaki, YUM!!I will definitely be back for that dish again and some dessert, the flourless chocolate cake was awesome, took that home with leftovers because we were so stuffed. Definitely recommend this delicious dinner spot!

Starting with the host the waitress the service crew. Outstanding. The restaurant was beautifully decorated. The food was fabulous and more then enough. The guitarist played great and asked if we had any special requests.Thanks again for a special night for my wife’s birthday. And also honoring the military. Thanks to the chef/ owner you have the perfect Blend

Food was out of this world. Best dining experience I've ever had. Staff was incredible and went out of their way to make our night special. 100% recommend, and we definitely will return here. We ate the 7-course chefs special, and eat bite was better than the last. Worth every penny and more. I really don't have the words to describe how incredible this food was.

We sat in low, uncomfortable metal chairs while the rest of the diners in the restaurant sat on cushioned, comfortable looking chairs.

Our waiter acted as if he could care less about us, and ignored us most of the evening with a little bit of a superior attitude.

Caesar salad did not taste like Caesar salad, and was soggy.

Would not recommend this restaurant.

Food and service were very good. Absolutely worth the trip.
Starting salads were terrific.
Mains were also very good - crab cakes and filet.
Surely worth many return visits.
Our server was very attentive and took great care of us.
Being a BYO is also a big positive.
Will be back soon
Thx again for a terrific dining experience

hmm?....not pleased with your statement. As it is just false. You won't get fresher anywhere. noisy? yes. as we are a full restaurant. you could have reached out to ownership to convey your experience. you didn't. you did this instead. take care.

IN THE END GO TO BLEND!!😃

We have always wanted to go to Blend but had never made the trip. I can honestly say it will be revisited many times in the future! From the hot Baguette and French onion soup, to the glazed Salmon to the Butter nut squash ravioli, it was all great!
The ambiance was beautiful with an almost upscale Manhattan feel. Our waitress Tina, one of the best we had in all of 2021. We are constant diners from Asbury’s Brando’s to Brielle’s Shipwreck to the five stars of Hilton Head Island, and BLEND killed it!
Reasonably priced and a BYOB can’t wait to go back!!

This restaurant never fails to disappoint. I ordered the Asian calamari which is always unique and delicious. For dinner I had the festival salad and my husband had the pork chop. You MUST get the Cracked Waffle for dessert. Nothing like it anywhere!!!!

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.

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.

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 .

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.
