Food was not good whatsoever, the dessert was okay but not worth it. The staff was really nice and ambiance was beautiful but the food is just not good.

I believed that since on the waterfront, my outdoor seating would offer a view of the Manhattan Skyline like all the other restaurants on that section of Center Drive ( Blend on the water no less) would offer a view. No view at all because not even on the side facing the water! Totally misleading to someone not from the area. The food was great though!

We were celebrating a Birthday. We decided to try the outdoor seating as today’s weather was cooler than usual. Blend always delivers good service and good food.

The service was fast and friendly. The food was good and the price is reasonable. We weren't seated outside, but the inside dining was cozy.

The food was some of the best I ever had and I had the best drink I ever tasted here. They have a Remy Martin VSOP and Tamarindo mixed drink and it's out of this world. I would go back just for the drinks.

I had seen a few negative reviews about Blend and was hoping we would not have any problems and it was the exact opposite! Our table was ready exactly when we reserved it and our server Mariela was delightful, knowledgable and efficient. Our party of 4 each ordered a different cocktail and everyone seemed pleased. Mine was a classic mojito... done right! Mariela helped us pick out a few sharable appetizers which again received unanimous approval. My entree was Arroz con Mariscos and all the ingredients were cooked to perfection and served hot which is critical. A sample tray of 4 desserts didn't last long enough for me to tell you what we devoured:) It seemed there were many birthday celebrations going on but we were just there to get together with family after a long year+ of being apart.

The food was great, service was slow. Drinks were watered down. Ambiance is beautiful it’s just a bit too dark. I would definitely recommend the restaurant for their food.

Birthday late lunch. Made a reservation for 3:30 because that’s All they had online. So I get there and they tell me that I have to wait till 5pm because I’m 5 mins the kitchen closes. So what’s the point of accepting a reservation or putting it available when you can serve at that time! Otherwise good and drinks was good.

The waitress was either new or she figured since the tip would be automatically included so there was no need to work hard.. We arrived prior to our reservation time we were seated right away!! However the waitress took about 20 min to come by to take our drinks and appetizers order… we got the appetizers way before getting our drinks (beer, carpirina, wine and mimosa) we noticed she keep given more attention to the smaller table (we had a party of 5, 4 adults 1 child) overall the experience for my father wasn’t the best .. which is terrible b/c we when to celebrate his B-Day!!

It was everything we sat out back and honestly I loved it they had music playing not too loud we could still talk laugh and hear each other I really loved the food it was good everything had flavor bc trust me I’ve been to other places where it looks nice and food has no flavor, def will be returning Blend will be our new regular spot to get good food. If you are on a date take her there she won’t forget it.

I made a reservation for my friend and I did her bday. We still had to wait 30 minutes to get inside amd another 15 to order. It was a Saturday and it was busy so I won’t hold It against them. They food was great. My friend doesn’t eat meat and she ordered the chorizo Mac, she wasn’t aware that chorizo is a type Of meat. I think there should be English language in the descriptions of food and drinks. The lighting was VERY minimal. I had to put the flashlight on my phone so we could read the menu. I get the lighting goes with the ambiance but I would actually like to see my food without using a flash.She said the salmon was a little dry but she enjoyed the drinks. They did sing happy birthday here with cake and ice Cream.overall it was a really
Nice experience and would go back. It’s very intimate, would be a great date night place. Great Spanish music as well
