    My husband and I went for our anniversary. We reserved online and added that information. The waitress was prepared and ready. She gave us free shots. We originally asked for cake and sparkler and we got that too. The drinks were awesome! Try the firey dragonfruit Mojito. It literally comes on fire! The food was good too.

    We came to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. Overall we had a great time, the food was delicious and the services from the waitress was outstanding. The only reason why I don’t give them 5 stars is because the hostess had a nasty attitude when I asked to be moved because I did not like the table we were given at first.

    We were early for our reservation and hostess and the managers were very thoughtful able to get us a table sooner. We also had unexpected additional people with us. Our waitress was amazing she went above and beyond to make sure that all my guest were comfortable and satisfied with everything that came out. Food was excellent! We would definitely be returning

    I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The ambiance was elegant and romantic. I was a bit disappointed with the shrimp pasta because it had no taste. The salmon was good, just need a bigger portion of the mash it came with. The drinks were a 10/10. Overall I would rate my experience a 7/10.

    I’ve been here many times throughout the years and NEVER have a I had the experience I had today. While I understand that there is a dress code, i was surprised to see that exceptions are made for people who are not African American. I myself am Latina, my husband however, an African American man-was approached not once but THREE times about his hat. My husband conceded and took off his hat. Not half an hour later , another patron (also African American) who was also presumably asked to take his hat off , put his hat back on after seeing that another man ( not African American) had simply walked in wearing one. It was observed that the night manager for this evening who i was told is named Diego, walked over the man and asked him to remove his hat. This man removed his hat but his company had also noticed that this manager had not asked the same of the aforementioned man with the hat - despite having walked right by him and in front of him. It was until it was brought to his attention that this was odd did this manager decide to walk over and ask the same man to remove his hat. This manager was rude, abrasive, and obviously prejudiced towards men of color. I am disgusted and disappointed at the caliber of “managers” that Blend on the water has decided to hire. I might add that after this incident , he sat at the bar and seemed to be having a grand time with two young women. Perhaps he was off hat patrol for the rest of the evening. I will continue to pursue this and complain about this until I am satisfied that this man is justly reprimanded for his disgusting behavior.

    We went with a group of 6 to the blend and the reservation confirmation indicated formal dress. We were formal ( no jeans/ no t Shirts no sneakers) everyone else was all dressed down. I think that formal attire note should be removed from the site. The food was amazing

    Came to Blend for my daughters birthday brunch. We were seated all the way in the back in a corner although we had reservations and there were plenty of empty seats. The food was underwhelming and the drinks were terrible. Service and quality have gone down. We Will not be coming back.

    The staff was absolutely rude and terrible. From the hostess to the waitress and the servers. The greeter refused to seat is until the last person arrived. There were 10 of us in total and nine of us were waiting by the bar which is small. The restaurant was not busy and 10 more people were not going to show up so I dont understand why they would not sit us. It was my wedding day and the waitress was extremely rude to my bride . Such rules for a low class place. The greeter was talking very loudly in the bathroom about how she doesn't get enough tips from customers which is extremely low class. My mother in law asked if the gratuity was included and the rude waitress had the nerve to say yes but we have to share our tips. Feel free to leave an additional tip. How rude... Dine at your own risk

    What i ordered was not good at all. The chicken was not seasoned. They called to try cancel my reservation 15 minutes before my arrival. The person on the phone also lied and said they were trying to get in contact with me. We ordered a frozen margarita, it was syrup and ice. The view, and the ambiance is what you are paying for.

    Great brunch experience with the family. Ambiance was one point, great Salsa music and not too loud. We ordered the Churrasco with eggs, Cuban French Toast, and the Arroz con Marisco. All very delicious dishes. The staff was attentive without having hover us asking us if everything was ok. It was nice so we are plan on doing it twice.
