I made reservations for 8pm , and they didn’t sit my group down until 8:25pm.. pretty long wait time. The service was a little ... all over the place . Place is super dark . So I wouldn’t recommended for a night out unless you’re ok with that.

Love this restaurant. Beautiful location. Service was slightly off for it to be so empty, but, overall, the food and atmosphere and music are always good. It was my birthday brunch.

Upon early arrival I was told my guest arrived but weren’t allowed in the restaurant until everyone else got there. After a few calls I found out my guest were inside at a bar waiting. Now the server took us to the table and it was disgusting! There was food on the chairs and under the table looked as if a food fight took place. Now this was a special occasion, and a reservation for 6. I looked for the bust boy who wasn’t far and I showed him the condition of the area and he was shocked. After a good 10-15 minutes of standing by the table we finally got to sit down. The server then took an additional 15 to take our drink order. So no, I would not recommend this place for special occasions.

Good location right by the river with a great view across to Manhattan. Lively bar/restaurant. Margaritas were excellent, wine less so. Food ok, but quite a lot of cheese across the menu and meat was too salty.

I loved my dinner. My table was ready on time. Since we were there a little early, we were able to enjoy a couple of drinks by the bar. All parts of our dinner was delicious. The crispy Arepas were so good! also the salmon cake. Def recommend the skirt steak and the filet mignon. The dessert platter was yum. My fave was the pineapple cake. Ill be back for sure. Our waitor was also very attentive.

Customer service is phenomenal!!! I had a 10pm reservation and although they made us wait 15-20 for a table it was worth the wait. They gave us a great table, by the window with plenty of space. We didn’t feel crowded. They also gave us a complimentary appetizer. Melanie was a very nice waitress, she took care of us right away and made sure we were ok. I absolutely love the drink options and food was awesome.

Went in on Saturday night with a 7:15 reservation for my boyfriends birthday dinner. The food was good, the ambiance was excellent. We ordered three pitches of sangria for the table, the sangria was amazing. Our waitress was really attentive and prompt. The liveusic was fenomenal. I myself had the pernil, it wasn’t so great but I had a taste of the churrasco and that was divine. I would recommend the churrasco if you want some good meat.

This was my second time at Blend on the Water. This time I booked a birthday dinner for my husband and requested a nice table with a view. We were seated within 15 mins of our reservation, however the hostess put us in a separate back area- away from the window. It seemed as if we were forgotten over there because it took 20 mins for our waitress to come to our table. Thankfully we already had drinks from our 15 min wait at the bar. I wish I could say that service got better but after everyone else around us got their meals, my hubby and I sat their waiting for 40 mins. When my churrasco came out it was well done, not medium. The mgr stopped by our table to offer us a second round of drinks on the house. He also put a rush on my medium steak. It came in about 10 mins and was tasty. No mention of my hubby’s birthday (though it was in the reservation details).

First time at Blend. Food was very tasty. Loved it. A bit on the noisy side. Good serving staff. Don't go for the view. Can't see Manhattan due to a lot of trees close to the windows. A nice walk on the esplanade is what you need if you want to see the NYC skyline!

Our food took almost an hour to come out. Table of two and it seemed our server forgot about us. We saw other tables that got waited on before us and they got there after we did. We also had a reservation, food was great it’s just the service that was distasteful.
