No social distancing is disturbing , vaccine cards don’t prove you don’t have Covid, bartenders and most servers not wearing masks. I would of enjoyed my experience better if I wasn’t so distracted at the level of irresponsibility.

I enjoyed my meal at Blend Astoria ! The restaurant was beautifully decorated, lots of space and a nice atmosphere. My partner and I were seated within a few moments and the hostess even went an extra step to make sure we were comfortable. All the food was delicious including the apps. We got guacamole and chips, an assortment of empanadas and the arepa cups which were my personal favorite. I got the Peruvian chicken and my partner got the pernil. The food was fresh and came out quick ! The drinks were great as well and the server was super friendly ! All in all it was a nice experience.

The service was horrible. We waited a while for the server to come once seated. The waitress never came by to check to see if everything was okay once we were finally able to order.

Everyone was seated in close proximity. Definitely wasn't following co-vid guidelines.

Was not presented with a bill until after it was paid, the waitress flash a tablet really quickly and then after the bill was paid she said she could text a receipt. Also she seen as she was in a rush to leave.

Blunch is over at 4pm but bottleless option is over at 2pm which makes no sense.

Sangria was horrible btw.

If 0 stars was an option that is what I’d choose. We made a 10 pm reservation for NYE which, according to multiple social media posts and the open table reservation description, was $95 a person for a 2 course meal and open bar. When we arrived we were told our table wasn’t ready and we could sit at the bar to wait. We each got a drink to start enjoying our open bar experience. At 10:30pm, 30 minutes after we were supposed to be seated, we were told the table was ready and we could “close out” at the bar. Once seated the bartender handed us a bill for our “open bar” drinks. We asked the waitress why we were being charged and she said that the drinks were separate from dinner. The table next to us was having a similar problem and the manager ended up being called. He was rude and dismissive and smirked when we showed him the social media ad that according to him “only applied to the other Blend location”. This business does not care about their customers. Don’t go.

The food here never disappoints. Delicious! It’s expensive so keep that in mind. Service was great, ambience is welcoming, and the music is always pumping (not too loud). The only reason I couldn’t give 5 stars is because I don’t think it was safe enough for these covid times. So just a heads up for folks, like us, that take this virus seriously. We were indoors, but not all the employees were wearing masks. The seats did not separate folks from each other so everyone was close to each other. The employee out front wasn’t always there to check vaccine cards. Some of my relatives arrived later and there was no check of their vaccine cards (ours was checked). We didn’t stay longer (for dessert) due to this reason. It’s just too risky in these times.

amazing food, great environment, however we were seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. The manager gave us a round of drinks on the house but i think reservations should be prioritized a bit more. Still would come back again though!
