    We chose this location because of the ratings and with a view of the City and East River. Our experience was excellent. We were greeted by a friendly and accommodating team; the wait crew was on top of things; the drinks were delicious; the meal and desert were delightful; and the “Happy Anniversary” on the desert plate was a beautiful touch, overall an memorable experience. We will be back! A special thanks to our server Melanie V. - outstanding example of hospitality and patient, attentive service.

    Food amazing but long wait for it. It seemed they was short staff like the rest of the world. So I didn’t care to much. I just wish the waitress would have acknowledged she was our waitress instead of us asking other people who walked by.

    Food had no taste, service was horrible, hot and humid almost passed out, no light to see to eat, menu showed 18% gratuity added for 4 or less people and 20% for 5 or more people but our party was only 2 and they still charged 20%.

    We were placed in a corner and our waitress barely showed up. She also charged us an automatic 20% tip and did not allow us to see an itemize receipt until we paid first. I tipped on the total provided which ended up being a double tip. When I received the receipt via email. I realized the double top. We had to complain to management that we were never told or shown tip was included. When I was there for previous years for Father’s Day we received free dessert with a sparkling firework candle. This year we did not receive that.

    Very nice view, and nice inside - but that was about the extent of the pros. They portray themselves to be a fine dining establishment, with a dress code, but it was anything but that. Food was dry, we waited 2 hours for it, the music was extremely loud, and overall it just seemed like they were trying to be something they weren't.

    Came here on Father’s Day and was a little disappointed because they only served brunch since it’s a Sunday. I totally forgot to check if they will have an exception on that day like what other restaurants do on Mother’s Day. Anyway, at least they still have the steak which my husband ordered, and the taste is ok. I ordered the pernil, it wasn’t bad and wasn’t great either. Both portions are on the smaller side compared to The Cuban restaurant in Bayside. My daughter enjoyed her burger, she said it was really good. The ambience inside is nice with the high ceiling, but don’t expect to see any water view while dining inside because you won’t see it. Service is ok, they seem to be short staffed because the place was not even full but we had to look for somebody to ask for our check. The only great thing about this restaurant is the location because you can enjoy a nice at Gantry Plaza.

    Food was just ok. Hostess was terribly rude and argumentative. Waitress was ok. Busboy cleaned the table with my husband’s cloth napkin before we were finished. Never saw that happen anywhere. The advertised views of Manhattan were only visible from outdoor tables, and they wouldn’t seat us at one. Very noisy. Won’t return or recommend it to anyone.

    I loved the ambiance, the atmosphere and the service. The drinks was terrific especially the guava margaritas. I had the crispy chicken which was okay and the reason I said okay because it wasn’t crispy at all and I think they should give it another name. I would definitely recommend Blend on the water. Nice restaurant, nice atmosphere and great drinks.

    As I am sitting, eating my meal. The manager asks me to remove my hat that I had on when I walked in and was sitting for 45 minutes because someone asked a gentleman to remove his hat. Childishness that I am now being singled out in front of other people after sitting here for 45 minutes. Say it at the door, do better.

    The food, the music, the service, and the atmosphere were all great. My only complaint is that I got an email telling me to dress nice, but when I got there, no one else seemed to care and I felt over dressed. I guess my advise is to ignore the email and be comfortable.

    Had a great time! I do feel the amount you pay vs portion size was a let down, compared to other restaurants and price point, you just didn’t get enough for the price. Food taste was great, we were seated outside near the water. Waiter was very attentive. The only thing that I didn’t like personally was the photography aspect. They had a photographer come to take photos and try to upsell you with photos that are insanely expensive (this coming from a photographer). That aspect did ruin part of the experience, but overall it was great!

    Although we got to the door and there was a short line we were seated right away according to our reservation. Waitress recommended short rib appetizer and it was delicious. Had a pitcher of the watermelon sangria and best sangria I've ever had coupled with my skirt steak that was cooked perfectly and the flavors just popped. The only thing I would say is if you don't like loud music while dining it's not the place for you as there was live music. Highly recommend and will definitely go back and sit outside next time
