I can't say anything bad about the food since I loved it so much. However, I was not given the window table I requested for even though I've seen empty tables by the window. I've let that know we were celebrating a birthday but nothing was presented to us. What a bummer.

Great experience, seafood paella was a bit salty which overpowered the flavor.

The portion of food they serve you does not justify their prices. The other locations prices such as Blend Astoria are less than Blend on the water.
Not worth going to Blend on the Water

The food was absolutely delicious. The waitress was kind and friendly. The decor and generally atmosphere was nice. The only issue we had was with the confusion about our reservation, which was at 3:30 pm. We arrived 10 minutes early and were asked if our entire party was present because the kitchen closes at 3:45 pm. I’m not sure why a 3:30 reservation is available if the kitchen closes so soon. Apparently there is a break between brunch and dinner from 3:45-5:00 pm. We ordered a pitcher of sangria and towards the end of our meal we ordered another round. The waitress asked if would like to move to the bar because there was a 5 pm reservation for a large group. Again, if all this is known why offer a reservation prior that would interfere.

Aside from this incident, we truly enjoyed outselves and the food. The other location in Astoria, I believe, is also great.

The worst Thanksgiving dinner ever. DRY, TASTELESS, SUBSTITUTIONS. They should stick to Latino food only. Service, location, ambiance was good.

You can't lose with this as your destination. In post covid dimmer time is 90 minutes but should have always been a thing. Parking is tough as this is NYC

I had dinner with my wife for her birthday. It was our first time at Blend but it definitely won't be our last. The service we received was top notch. I've worked in food service before and this staff was on point all night. The food was excellent. Try the pionono!! Live salsa music and really good drinks. All in all this was a 10/10 for me.

Staff was very accommodating and attentive. The food was a little above average. Music was loud ... Lighting was uneven-- dark in some areas, very bright in others, like the area where we eventually chose to sit because we wanted to enjoy the skyline view beyond the window -- alas we couldn't see enough of it because of the light inside reflecting on the glass ... perhaps we can try brunch. The menu and bill holder lit up when opened -- very innovative!

The hostess needs some classes in working with the public. She was rough and u inviting. The rest was fabulous. The food was delicious, and the server was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The music got too loud to have a chat after awhile surrounding my brunch.

Do not recommend. Waited 15 minutes after being seated for anyone to come to our table. Waitress did not come to check on us. Then had to wait 20 minutes for a check. Rather go to the original Blend on Vernon Blvd.
