My appetizer was so small and I was so disappointed at the portion size that I didn’t even care to eat the main course. Spoke to management and he responded as though it didn’t matter to him whether I stayed or left... SO I kindly took my $200 and left. That was my 2nd a last time going. I’ve been there before and wasn’t satisfied to then come back and leave with the same result. SOFRITO! SAZON! DON COQUI can have my money ANYTIME.

Blend on The Water is a great spot if you're with your SO or a group of close friends. Beautiful views of the skyline, yummy crispy arepas, and great coconut mojitos. Can get a bit loud.

Amazing locale with a great view of the city. The food was delicious, but what really blew my mind was the Coconut Margherita. You have to try it if it's your first time here.

I was a little disappointed, after having many family and friends recommend this place for a date night. The view was alright, could possibly be better in the spring and summer months.. very small setting, felt like I could elbow with the couples on either side of me. The menu was NOTHING of what I expected, literally 2 pages no dessert(unless they had a whole other menu for it, we didn’t stick around to see). I did like the fact that they fill up your glass with ice water frequently. It’s definitely too small of a place, no seating to wait for your table to be ready, so you kind of have to just stand around and keep out of the waiters and waitress’s way. The girl at the door upon entering was nice, the guys that open the door were friendly as well, over all the people were great.. the vibe was good.

Went for our Anniversary, Birthday celebration!!! Not sure if it was because the place was super busy. The food wasn’t as tasty and flavorful as it always had been. I will always go back because I love the place. The service is optimal. They just need to work on the food quality.

NEVER has Blend been a disappointment. The food was delicious and the service exceptional. The only negative from my last visit was the people who were seated next to us were very loud and rude. They were not appropriately dressed. So people should follow dress code at all times to keep Blend exquiste as it already is.

Dark overall but it allows you to enjoy the lights for the city skyline. They have menus that light up when you open them. Arepas for appetizer were delicious. Portions are good. Things are priced well. Different takes on classic desserts. Flan is super rich and creamy; not watered down like most restaurants or places tend to do. My parents had a great time since we were celebrating their anniversary.

I came here for dinner for my boyfriend's birthday on a Friday night. We were seated at a table for two closest to the windows...and wow...what view!I'm sure when it's nice outside, the view would be even better. Our waitress was friendly, and checked on us consistently. The music was Latin themed and kept the energy up. I had the churassco (I think thats how you spell it) medium, and the flavors were juicy! He had the crispy chicken, and said it was good. The drinks were strong (tamarind's island, fiery dragonfruit) and tasty. At the end, the waitress brought the dessert sampler with a sparkler for his birthday, which we enjoyed. This is a place for grown friends/couples that want to have a sexy night out on the town. There isn't much room for dancing, but the place is always packed with everyone having a great time. Even through this place is out of the way for us, I would definitely return any time.

Although reservations were in place a month in a half prior, my party and I still had to wait an hour and some change; however blend being professional and considerate offered us appetizers on them. This was by far everything to my party and myself, It’s the simple things that go a long way. Thank you blend.
