I had a party of 4 booked for 9pm. I arrived at 9:45pm which was extremely late. I walked in and still was able to be seated and served. The waiter was extremely nice and sociable. I really enjoyed my experience and food. I definitely would come back and recommend friends.

We ate outside. Very nice staff. Relaxing lunch experience. Look forward to returning in the summer. I'm assuming that they open up the back more in warm weather.

The food was okay . The waitress got the preparation of steak mixed up with my friends order , so that was a bummer . The waitress was not as attentive as I’m used to. I would go back because of the ambiance but the service from the waitress wasn’t good so I would prefer not to sit in the area of tables . Other than that, I can not complain.

Went for a birthday dinner. Vibe of Blend has definitely gotten more relaxed and not as upscale since Covid. Had the lobster and crab tequenos as an appetizer. They were just okay. Had the churrasco for dinner. It was really good. Drinks were just ok. May be the last time I visit Blend. Not too impressed.

I wish they utilize the front seating space in the morning. I would have liked to sit separate from other people. But I love this spot!!

I would of like a lil bit more lighting I did fine the place to be too dark. Also there was no music playing at all. I believe there should be some time of music playing in the background

My experience at Blend on the Water was okay. I have heard so many good things about this restaurant and wanted to try it out. When we came in we didn’t wait at all, we were seated immediately which was awesome. We order appetizers with drinks and it came out less than 5 mins which was another great point. Our entrees also came out pretty quick as well.

This is a very fast pace restaurant, everything came out almost immediately. My husband and I felt a bit rushed even though I know that was not the intent of our server.

I was expecting the food to have more seasoning and flavor given that it is a Latin restaurant. The ambience was really nice and I think that’s Blend on the Water’s main attraction.

Also another point which has nothing to do with the restaurant. Parking is horrible in this area. We had to park at a near by garage and spent $18 for one hour.

Overall, if I was in the area I would visit Blend on the Water.
The staff is super friendly and the bathrooms are very clean and fully stocked.

Food was ok. The one in Astoria is way better. We were rushed the moment we were seated. The waiter kept reminding us that there was a 90 minute seating limit.

We went for our anniversary and I was surprise on the service we were provided this time. Made a reservation and had to wait because they were confused on where to seat us. Our waitress was ok didn't checkin on us until she realized our food came out way before our appetizers. When they realized we got our food first they said they will give us the appetizer and not charge us. We told them we didn’t want it and still bought it out. Problem was the table was so small they just shoved everything on it. Let’s not get started on the bathroom attendant. My wife went to the restroom and asked for toilet paper, when I told the attendant paper was needed she told me “just pull it down “ and went back to her phone conversation. My wife had to yell from the stall to get paper. It would also be nice not to assume people don’t speak Spanish before making insults about us to the person on the phone. Super disappointed. I like this place the first time we came but they for sure dropped the ball this time.

The food was great but had to alert server several times for assistance. I would have preferred her just check on us periodically. Everyone was super friendly.

We never got served. Sat at our table for 30 minutes. Just in utter shock how horrible we were treated. And didn’t even notice when we just got up and left.

When I booked the reservation, it noted that only outside reservations were being given so we expected a table on the patio, which is what we wanted. Upon arrival, we were given an inside location which is not what we wanted. The host offered to seat us outside on the sidewalk. We declined and left.

Blend sets the standard for pre-COVID feel of properly distanced COVID dining. As of the first week of April 2021, Blend has it down pat.
