Great food. Very small, loud, crowded space. Service was very slow. We sat with no menus for a while until we asked, then had to take utensils off another table. Overall good food and ambiance. I would recommend going during the week when it is less crowded.

Took my family here 2 days in a row- party of 6-7
Love the ambience, very clean, spacious enough, clean restrooms, but service is very slow - they only had 1 waitress going around for everybody so of course , we had to wait like 10 - 15 min before anybody came to get our orders then we waited to get our coffee and had to ask them several times for my husband's beer, I had to ask for extra napkins and sugar for the coffee and by then it was really getting annoying but I give kudos to the waitress Katlyn who was very nice and professional and apologetic even when you see she was working her butt off . I saw her even having to ask another employee to put sugar in the sugar bowl.
Needless to say, in spite of this, the food was good and delicious, and of course the prices are great. We had the Churassca, majorca, the maduros with cheese, the huevos rancheros, cuban sandwiches, black bean hummus with chips, the Palomillo plate, the chicken with rice and beans plate, everything was good !!! Sangria was yummy and strong !!!
Will def recommend this place and come back again but hopefully they hire enough ppl and or spread out the jobs so the waitress won't be loaded and then service will be hopefully better .

Food was dry, waiter didn't bring second beer as requested. Gf stated her food lacked salt. The steak was very dry and a bit tough. Looked good but didn't taste as good. Mojito lacked punch, tasted good but alcohol was minute.

I wouldn't recommend Blend LIC for Brunch. The service was good. The waitress was very attentive. The brunch menu is very limited menu, so there's no excuse for poor quality food. It was my husband birthday. We usually go to Blend on the water, but I wanted more of a family style restaurant even though it's the same name or chain restaurant. Blend on the water is the place to go for good consistent quality food, service and ambiance.

It was fourth of July and the place was packed with one server and one or two support staff. The restaurant could have used more waiters for sure. I got the pollo al la plancha which was tasty but very salty and an empanadas which was extremely small. I wasn't impressed with the food and it was extremely loud inside the restaurant.

Service was very slow, it took almost 20 minutes for a waiter to come and greet us and take our drink order. Then took another 30 min to get our drinks from the bar after forgetting to input the drink order. Food came out fairly quickly, very tasty and good portions for the price. I would probably go back if it wasn't as crowded as it was the day I went

My wife and I went to the Blend website and after looking at their menu mad a reservation for 730 on Saturday Night. When we arrived we were told that we were at the wrong Blend Restaurant. I said I made the reservation from the website and I was told when they are full the reservations carry over to their sister restaurant on Vernon Blvd. My wife and I walked to their other location and were seated promptly by their staff with an apology for the misunderstanding. We were given menus and discovered the sister restaurant did not have the same menu and in fact was quite sub par to their primary location. We decided to leave and found an excellent Latin Fusion restaurant a short distance away on Vernon Blvd. I do not think my wife and I will give Blend another shot.

The food wasn't as good as it usually is. It was regular. The hostess was not very friendly. We had a baby with us and she made us wait for a table when there were several tables open, as well as us having a reservation. Being in the hospitality business I watched her swap tables around for no reason at all leaving us to wait to sit for longer than needed. I'll be back hopefully service will be better
