Our food was great, the ambient of the place was good but our sever was more busy on her cellphone than paying attention to us. We had to ask for our check multiple times and thank God one of the busboy came to clean the table and we ask him to please ask the server to bring it to us.

My Mother in law’s birthday brunch was spectacular. Not only was the food great, we got to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. She was blown away as was I.

I have been to blend a handful of times and I can only say good things about this place! Jasmin was great from start to end! I wanted to do to a bridesmaid/maid of honor proposal and the staff was great in assisting me.
Starting off with their drinks. Their pink lemonades are so good it is hard to say no more. Their rose Bellinis are great as well. Jasmin, our waitress provided great service and kept on checking up on us to make sure we had the pink lemonades on deck.
Their food is so good. We went for brunch and every time I have been here, I have tried something new and they have not disappoint. I have had the pasta aztec with chicken - great flavor with a nice spicy kick, chicken chilaquiles - a good size portion, great sauce and spicy and the huevos rancheros was great as well. Their side order of tostones was so good.
The music on Sundays is a live DJ playing and it's really a good mix of music. What a great place for brunch and have a good time especially is Jasmin is your waitress!

The empanadas were not good. The server tried to give us the wrong food. The chicken was not cooked properly and the ropa vieja portion was small. The regular frozen sangria was not available when I tried to order it. The waitress was not good and the servers were dropping utensils all over the place. It was complete chaos and I will never go back to this restaurant again.

Everything about Blend Astoria was great, with one exception. I ordered the Pan Seared Tilapia Filet figuring it was safe being that I’m gluten free. It turned out that the fish was covered in a light flour coating without that description being provided on the menu. Apparently the waitress was unaware of this as well since I held a conversation with her about being gluten free. That was disappointing, the menu needs more specifics as far as all ingredients used to prepare the whole meal. Other than that, the music was great, the sangria was tasty and the outdoor seating was wonderful. I will be returning but will be more careful about ordering food.

I've been a fan of this place since it opened, but this is the 3rd time that my tostones were greasy or extra small and crumbly. I'm Puerto Rican, so I know my tostones and Blend's used to be great, but something is slipping. Also, the music on Sunday night way insanely loud, we each had to shout at each other. Was more like a club than a restaurant.

It was my birthday. Waited 20 minuets for my drink. My husband food came out 30 minuets before mine. We had to ask what happened... then it was give us 5 minuets. Clearly my food was never ordered. Then I ordered another drink... they bought the wrong one. My husband asked for some extra sauce for his food the waitress forgot about that. He actually stopped eating his food so we could eat together. The food was dry. The service was horrible. The drinks were good once they got them right

I really liked this place, the drinks were to die for and the atmosphere was great. However I took my mother here for a Mother's Day brunch, and the brunch menu is very limited. It was my first time here but my mom had been here before, all of her favorite items on the menu weren't included during brunch hours (11am-3pm). My food was good, but not anything to write home about.

Get the Margarita's on the rocks!

We had a wonderful time celebrating a friends birthday. The food, ambiance and service were great. We have visited Blend LIC and felt the ambiance is definitely much nicer here. Although we did miss a wonderful appetizer that consisted of empanadas, fried chicken chunks, calamari, shrimp that LIC had. You should consider adding it to the menu. Pina coladas and Mixed berry drink were awesome. The Live band was great. Plan to visit again soon!

I have to been to Blend Astoria so many times but I must say this time was by far the worse experience. We were unable to sit for our 9pm reservation until 9:40 pm. The hostess and the servers were very unprofessional and rude and when it was time to sing happy birthday the birthday girl was asked about the cake when they were notified the whole night was a surprise. It was just a disaster and I’m very disappointed in the service.

I met up with some friends here for dinner and drinks on a Late Sunday afternoon. Having reservations was a plus because they turned quite a few customers away while we were waiting for a few to arrive (they wouldn’t sit us unless at least half the part was present). There is also a 2 hour seating for folks with reservations. Food was delicious and ambiance was great. We were sat downstairs not near the live music upstairs but by the door and it was freezing cold every time the door opened. I wished we had better seats so that we could fully enjoy the place.

I enjoyed the fact that I made a reservation and they texted me to confirm and also communicated with me when I told them I was stuck in a little traffic.

Savannah our server was great - sweet and very present.

Live music was nice

Food was delicious.

I have been to all the BLEND Restaurants and I am glad that this one is just as good.
