Always a great meal. Service was attentive. Would recommend to anyone
The service by Tina was exceptional!
All of our meals were superb & beautifully plated. I can't wait to come back!!
This is the whole package; lovely setting, attentive and gracious service, and delicious food. Food presentation was definitely a cut above the ordinary, with unique twists, especially on the calamari and the salad.
Impeccable service, outstanding food, very nice decor.
Such a nice atmosphere!! Sat by the fireplace on a cold winter night. The food, ambience and service was perfection. The waitress gave us enough attention to let us know we were being well taken care of but gave us plenty of time to enjoy our meal and conversation . The food was delicious and presentation very aesthetically pleasing. One of the best meals out I have had in a long time! Excellent all around.
This was my first time at this restaurant. Mostly all positive. The food was delicious. Service was mostly very good. Nice atmosphere. Did not feel rushed. The only negative (and I will give them a pass in my "stars" rating) was that 2 dinners arrived luke warm at best. There was a bit of a wait, and I believe they either sat waiting for the server, or more likely the main meals were waiting for some reason for my daughters kids mac and cheese (which was piping hot). The other 2 meals were luke warm. It is a shame because the food was excellent. We will come again and hope this was an anomoly/one off mistake. We will see what happens next time!
great place to have a date night I have had the fish and the turf both are great
As always, the food was great. All six of us had different entrees and everyone was happy. The ring ding tower dessert was enough for all of us to share.
Food was excellent. Server was good but took a while to get him to engage on discussion of food. Noise was way too loud. First time we have been seated in big room. Would recommend parties of two in smaller room.
A favorite for when I’m in this part of town. Food is always great and innovative. Service usually great but this tome was super rushed.
Great restaurant . Food taste fabulous
Highly recommend to all
Second time at Blend, great food and ambiance. Great fish selections very nicely presented plates and byob! I had a mussel appetizer that was a meal in itself, most restaurants give a very small portion. My wife had the Mediterranean salad which was fantastic! On my first visit I had the shrimp and grits which were fabulous and this time I had the zuppa de peace which was awesome. Highly recommend this gem !
Wonderful place, great atmosphere and outrageously delicious food. Service was top notch as well. Left stuffed and completely pleased.
They had a private cocktail party of about 40 people in the same dining room, standing with the full house of Sat. evening diners, as well as two large tables in the middle of the room with rowdy birthday revelers. It was like New Years eve. We had to huddle together at our table to speak. Just awful. We should have left. We spent alot of money on tomahawk steak dinners. Tasty but fatty. I barely got any meat. We split them at 2 orders of $125, for 2 people each. Really a splurge to be disappointed. The noise finally subsided after two hours and the young staff started the vacuum, with us still there and finally relaxing. We were very disappointed as in the past found it quiet there. We left saying we should have made steaks at home!
First time here. Food was better than expected, and was prepared and presented well. Great service from Tyler. One drawback, the whole restaurant was very loud. Also, the items were pretty pricy, more on par with NYC prices. The tab for our party of 4 was $300 , and that does not include Alcohol because it's a BYOB .
My husband went to the Blend for the first time for a date night and we loved it. The food was absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it and we are looking forward to coming back. We had the Pre-fixe menu through the Groupon and the choices were delicious and creative. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meals. The service was ok, there were a few mix-ups with our meal and it took a very long time for us to order and then after we ordered, they brought us a desert menu and someone else's deserts before we received our entree. Not a big deal. It took a very long time to get our meals but we would definitely buy the groupon again and go back !!
Everything was absolutely amazing as always!!! Thank you Chef Lou for everything! We will be back hopefully sooner than later!
Food was great but service mediocre. Our server couldn't answer basic questions about the menu, border line unfriendly, and seemed disinterested in general. I will try again in hopes we just got a server having a bad day. The food was that good!
Excellent food, both in quality and taste. You really can’t go wrong. Locally sourced and expertly prepared. Really among the best at the Jersey shore
Great service, love that it is a BYOB and the food was incredible, we had the Asian calamari which was amazing, and for our entrees we had the shrimp and grits and the tuna filet, very good, and the flourless chocolate cake was great.
We have been going to Blend since it’s opening and it has never disappointed us. The Chef and his staff do an excellent job in preparing and cooking the food then having it served in an eye appealing presentation. On this eve the lobster tails and steak were cooked to perfection and were delicious. Our server, Steve, was on point and made sure everything was to our liking.
Have eaten here several times for different occasions, the food is always fantastic and the wait staff is excellent.
We have gone to Blend on many occasions. This time we had a Groupon. They now have a special menu just for Groupons. Entree choices not great, although salad and appetizers were very good. You do get a dessert but only specific ones. If you want to choose something from the regular menu you pay extra. We were not told that COFFEE (of all things) was not included (although it might have been indicated on the Groupon but not sure); this may seem petty but it was annoying especially at $3.50 plus the tax so when you look at what the Groupon cost you, it wasn't a great deal.
In addition, the lighting in the dining room was very dim - you could not see the menu choices without having to put your flashlight on from your phone. Not sure what's happening at Blend but it didn't live up to all of the other times we visited.
Thank goodness the waitstaff was great!
Creative menu, lovely decor, very attentive staff. Excellent restaurant!
Bad would never return
Wonderful dinner tonight the tomahawk steak dinner was delish. All the sides were yummy and the donuts were so yummy .
My husband travels half the year so we got away for the night for a "date' before his next travel run. (We actually drove 2 hours for an overnight getaway) The restaurant was full which made it quite loud, but the food was very good and the wait staff was absolutely wonderful. Blend completed our experience and we're already looking forward to coming back.
Blend simply does it right. From salads to main course to desert..exceptional food. Scallops are the best I’ve ever had. The crab cakes and halibut a table favorite. We will frequent this restaurant often in the future.
First time visiting Blend on Main. Both the food and service were outstanding! Will be making many return visits.
Came on a Friday night and oh boy Prime Rib night! Started with Blend's house salad, delish, cold fresh and it's made with my favorite lettuce Arugula, shaved fennel, blood orange slices, cheese yummy. The prime rib is served to order, medium rare for me and it was perfection and oh so scrumptious. The "skinny fries" were very good, the vegetables served were fresh and cooked aldente, green beans, colorful baby carrots a wonderful mix, added a side of the char asparagus white and green mix my favorite vegetable. Dessert was the warm cinnamon sugar donuts with warm jam, whipped cream and a strawberry and a double espresso! Our server, Jean, is the best, friendly, professional and attentive.l, wonderful staff. Nice ambiance, a BYO. Great date night eatery!
There were 4 in our group. We were seated on time. We were disappointed that there was not a fixed price menu (that was listed on the website). Waiter told us it has not been on the menu for about a year. He told us the crab cakes were also available as an entre and were very good. We all decided to order them and it was the perfect choice. They were delicious--probably the best I have ever had! The asparagus served with the crab cakes was cooked perfectly. My husband ordered creamed spinach--also very good. For dessert, we ordered peach cobblers and sundaes. Delicious. The only complaint is the noise level. Very hard to carry on a conversation. But would definitely return.
LOVE this restaurant! Food is always excellent and so is the service. The chef and the people who work at this restaurant are always so kind. We go for breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch...always great!
Love it!!! Amazing meal, every time!!! <3 everyone is always so attentive, and they go above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience :) This time we tried all of the specials, short rib flatbread, tomato bisque, chickpea ravioli, and lamb terrine... Flavors were to die for!!! Thank you blend for another delectable dining adventure :) xoxoxo
Our dining experience was less than favorable. The restaurant's noise level was very loud, it was nearly impossible to enjoy a conversation with the person sitting right next to you. The food was mediocre at best, the "Berkshire" pork chop, which was sent back, was full of fat and of poor quality. We are always looking for a quaint neighborhood BYOB, sadly this one did not qualify. We will not be returning.
Great menu, executed brilliantly. Great small plays on classic dishes. Great value all around.
Found it to be very relaxing and food enjoyable. Server was knowledgeable and attentive.
Ala Carte so remember to order your salad. would go back again
Wonderful food, server seemed in a hurry. Great spot if seeing a show at the Algonquin.
Had the filet mignon and creamed spinach. Both were great. Great deal when using Groupon. Otherwise, would have been a little pricey.
Food was good. The restaurant was out of a few menu items. Used a Groupon but was still very expensive meal for two.
Was there on a Saturday night. Much too loud. Hard to have a conversation at our table
