I had a reservation for 2 when we got their at 7:45 the time of our reservation I was told I never had a reservation when I showed the hostess my confirmation she then apologized and told us our table was given to another party. We where seated in a timely manner considering the situation. The rest was an ok experience I don't think we will be returning.

Since it was a Tuesday evening in October, we did not experience any crowds so it was delightful to carry on a conversation with our friends. I believe we all ordered from the specials and no one was disappointed! My husband was thrilled with his bowl of tomato bisque soup with a grilled cheese small sandwich that came with it! Overall, everything was wonderful!!

Asian calamari was brought out cold. Not warm, cold.
That didn’t go over well. You should provide a large spoon or some appropriate utensils when it’s a shared appy. Using your one and only fork while passing around is sloppy and leaves everyone with a saucy fork for the next course.
Duck breast was chewy due to rubbery gristle. Not pleasing to have to try and remove uneatable chewed hunts to your plate
Disappointing night in those two items. Will stick the entrees I know are consistently good.

We brought my husband's mother and sister with us to celebrate his birthday. Food was delicious as usual. Service was not rushed. The flatbread is a must- mussels were good but small. The table chose the filet and shared a mashed potato side which is big. I love the scallops, they never disappoint. We will be back !

Though a 50th class reunion made the room quite noisy, it didn’t subtract from the quality of the food, which as always was creative and tasty. The staff were solicitous but the highlight of the evening was a sign that read, “No Wi-Fi. Talk to each other.” That sign engendered laughter but lead to conversation with diners at nearby tables.

Disappointment - Amish chicken was changed - very oily - not the same as previously. Ordered a side of vegetables - steamed but came with oil. Did not enjoy - returned and still on bill. Our waiter was very good however - the food he could not help

Calamari was good but sauce was used a little to liberally.
Lobster empanadas were costly for little lobster meat that was inside.
Entrees were great
Dessert was great - love that sundae.

Food was very good however service was rushed. Salad and main course come out within 10 minutes of each another. We left in less than one hour. Not what we were looking for on a Saturday evening
Although the food was good will NOT return. This is not first time we had issues with the service.

Blend has always been an enjoyable dining experience and continues to be the same. The food was exceptionally prepared, the service by Darron was top shelf, the hostess pleasant and wanting to satisfy, and just an fine dining time. Keep up the excellent performance.

This is truly a great neighborhood restaurant that serves great food. There is a nice pulse of young people too. It is casual and comfortable. The staff is very attentive and the presentation of the food is very nice as well. The menu has a very varied selection of dinner entrees as well as appetizers. The crabcakes were my favorite.

So glad we had the chance to try this restaurant. As many other stated the restaurant is very noisy, however I feel it means that people were talking and having a great time. We started with the special chicken and waffles. They were amazing, with pieces of slab bacon, sauces and pickled jalepenos. We also had the Chicken Rollatini and Delmonico Steak. Both were very good. The standout dessert was the doughnuts. With a slight hint of salt they were delicious. Our server Jean, was excellent. Thanks for making it a wonderful date night!

Very good meal — best we’ve had down the shore for locally sustainable & fresh eats. Its not common with shore restaurants.

Service was fantastic, kind, pleasant & helpful. Look forward to dining at BLEND again.

This place was jumping (as in frantic) on the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend. The crab cake and tuna tacos appetizers were both very good and the grilled tuna special was excellent. The place was very loud. We sat on metal (uncomfortable) patio chairs around small outdoor bistro tables that were placed just inside the door to maximize seating area.
