Not sure if it was just a busy day, but I’ve never had to wait for my table with a reservation, sorry for coming 15 mins early
Took 2 hours to get seated, when my reservation was at 6:00pm. Valet took 30 minutes to get my car when I was leaving. Never going back.
This has been one of many times I have pleasure to socialize with my friends and family, we all had a great time!
Love the atmosphere.
The food is great! Dessert was awesome! Drinks spot on!!
Overall loved it! Will return
I am always impressed with Blend on the Water. To be sure, I only go there for Saturday/Sunday brunch. But the overall experience has been satisfying each and every time.
The service was so fast and the food was so tasty! And of course the view is amazing! Very remarkable overall! I highly recommend!
Great place. Awesome service and view of the city. Food great!! Hot spot.
Had an excellent time. Went for my birthday. The hospitality was great. The food and drinks was good.
Took my parents for their 42nd anniversary and it was wonderful the food the vibe the people were all great
I feel the service needs to be better , from the reception area. Bartender wasn't friendly at all. Our waiter was amazing but employees need to be trained on customer service. Overall it was ok, nothing about the experience was wow.
Blend on the Water is one of the few restaurants where I can indulge in their entire menu. Selection is amazing and as well as the drinks. With the incredible view I strongly recommend to anyone.
Went here for my friend's birthday the other day and oh my god! The service was amazing and the food was divine. I loved the atmosphere and it was simply amazing. I can't wait to come back here! It's perfect for big groups as well as just for couples. Mmm still dreaming about that shrimp fettuccine!
Very nice waitress- Charlene.
Absolute enjoyed this place. It’s truly amazing I would go there again. Waterfronts views is amazing.
The food was amazing. Ambience was great. Perfect for special occassions. Drinks were great. Service was great. Location is great.
Went on a date night with my wife something that we both deserved make your reservation ahead of time online like I did great customer service we were seated as soon as we entered the restaurant. The food was good. I’m a big guy I didn’t think the Food portion size was going to fill me up but it did after a couple of beers and Dessert. I will come back again total experience was really good
Everything was great, they need to work on the birthday celebration , all they do is give you a candle and say happy birthday. No singing or anything what so ever.
It was my girlfriend’s birthday so I decided to take her to a place a friend reccomended. We arrived to the restaurant around 10 minutes early for our 9PM reservation, but we were not seated until 9:20PM. A larger party ahead of us also had a wait time they were not happy about. The host explained to us that the table they planned for us had guests that had paid but didn’t leave, but that isn’t an acceptable response. When you make a reservation, you simply shouldn’t have to wait 20 minutes for your table. Then the server did not speak to us until 9:35PM; we were 5 minutes away from walking out of the door. She came over and was polite, but seemed like she didn’t understand that we were in her section for 15 minutes before she said a word to us. We placed our orders from drink to entree and then the food and drink service was prompt enough, but our entrees (the filet mignon and the salmon) were less than desirable. The salmon had a hair in it and the filet mignon flat out didn’t taste good (I ordered it medium). We alerted the server to the issues and they took the entrees back. We didn’t order anything else because we were turned off from the entire experience. We asked for the check and they brought us a birthday platter, which was a sweet gesture but not what we asked for. This was the worst dining experience I have ever had, and I will not be returning. I was very disappointed in how unaware the server was, the food simply wasn’t good, and the restaurant, on a Tuesday night, couldn’t honor a reservation for 2 people for 20 minutes. It’s a pretty place and the drinks are good, but running a restaurant seems over their head.
My husband and I went to Blend on the Water to celebrate my birthday this past Tuesday. I selected the restaurant for the location, knowing it had a great waterfront view. The service was hospitable and efficient - friendly staff and quick turnaround times for both food and drinks. We were also delighted to learn it was "2 for 1 Mojito Tuesday." A great value, if you enjoy mojitos. My husband and I both ordered steak entrees and were pleased with the quality of the meat, temperature, and seasoning. We also had the arepa appetizer (with short rib) which was decadent. We will return to Blend on the Water, especially if we have friends in town and want to "show off" the beautiful waterfront in LIC.
My family and I have been coming to this restaurant since it first opened and before that we went to regular blend on Vernon blvd. When I made the reservations I put the accommodations that would be needed and requested to be seated outside if the weather was nice. Upon arrival I give my name and they see I had children with me and asked if I wanted a high chair I told them I wrote all the accommodations in the booking. The lady goes and gives out a huff then reads what I wrote there and looks annoyed and tells the other girl I don’t know just put them at the table right there. So I then asked why weren’t we be being seated outside as requested she told us the outside is closed because there aren’t enough waiters. I honestly don’t get why I bothered wasting time writing what I needed if the request weren’t going to be met and nobody was going to inform me that outside was unavailable, it’s beyond unprofessional and that’s not even mentioning the lousy service we received and the waiters trying to take things off our table that weren’t finished yet and being seated right in the front where they have people waiting to be seated who just stare at your food and one of the groups were so loud and arguing with each other not caring I had two kids with me. This experience was so horrible and it ruined the whole celebration we went there for.
It was recommended to me.
I was so impressed I'm not only coming back but i'm recommending it to my closest friends.
The best food in Long Island city! Our waitress was the best
This is my second meal at Blend. Both times have been great food, and a fun atmosphere. This is a great place to celebrate a birthday. Happy hour drinks were nice, and there are plenty of specialty drinks. Both seafood and steaks were very good. We love the taco appetizers. The only thing that was just okay was the guacamole. And of course, the view of Manhattan is to die for!
I love the place and the food. One of my favorite place unfortunately is not a place to go and have a nice talk over dinner with special someone, its too loud and last Sunday the music was extremely loud.
Blend was a disappointment. The ambiance was beautiful, settings were immaculate. The service was less than optimal. The staff seemed very unorganized and often times confused. The food was less than lengendary and certainly not worth its price. I would not recommend dining to anyone.
Food was good. Service wasn’t great. I had steak and was never brought a steak knife, asked for ketchup for home fries and never received it. Waitress also never came back after our food was served to ask if all was ok.
Overall everything was good except was very hungry and have to wait to long to order
I was expecting more the chicken was so bland🤦🏾♂️. The drinks were the best part of the meal!!!! The manager was cute though 😭😭😭. Next time tell the chef to add more seasoning please and thank you
The service was excellent and food was delicious reasonable prices The view was full of excitement and elegant.the only thing I didn’t like because I was late to my own dinner party I had to wait hour and a half to be seated
Cool area to eat and overal fun. I highly recommend all couples or friends to go there and parking is convenient because they provide parking for only $7.
My girls and I went to Blend on the Water and had a Fab time! Will certainly go again!
This restaurant is really nice. Good food and good quick service. All the employees that served us were super nice. Plus nice view and definitely would go back again.
We had a very Nice time and great food with beautiful views . Would definitely recommend . Although it was a bit pricey
The Valet Parking was great. Music too loud for general conversation, waitstaff was slow and not very attentive. Food was okay and the restrooms very clean. Location was very good to show customer the NYC skyline.
Had an Amazing time!! Food was really good, our waiter Viviana V. was super friendly and amazing . Thanks! :)
My experience at Blend on the Water was sensational. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. There is a great view of the city skyline and you can go for a nice walk in the park after your meal. Great restaurant overall.
The vegan chicken was delicious. Our server was really good. I had two issues: we were seated near the band which made it hard to have a conversation. Luckily they finished their set before our meal came. The other issue was that the manager was a little rude. He said that because we were arrived 2 minutes after the 15 minute grace period they will have a 1 hour and 15 minute wait but they may call sooner. After waiting an hour we went to follow-up on the wait time and he said well you’ve only waited about 55 minutes and I told you it would be an hour and 15 minutes.
My husband and I had our first date as a married couple at Bland and it was perfect. They provided us with glasses of Champaign on the house and candle lit dinner. The food and drinks were amazing! We will definitely be returning soon.
This was my first time at Blend on the Water. I attended in celebration of 2 friend's birthdays. We made a reservation and once the entire group arrived, we were seated promptly. It took a while for the waitress to come to our table. We were given menus for our food but not for our drinks. I asked the bus boy if we could have drink menus and he did not seem thrilled to honor this request. He actually never came back with menus. We ended up having to wait to ask the waitress who then brought the menus. We then had to rush to look it over to place our drink order with her. Beside this initial occurrence, the remainder of the visit was enjoyable. The drinks and food were all good. Bread should be standard for the table, however. The tres leche coconut dessert is very good -a must try! I will more than likely eat here again.
We really wanted to enjoy the view however with the TVs on Over the Bar it reflects on the glass and you are not able to see out and look at the Manhattan skyline. Service was not that good had to wait when we first sat down to order anything and then upon leaving the hostesses upfront could care less that you spent the night in the restaurant and didn't even say goodnight it's the little things in customer service that are important to me and I do not feel like this restaurant delivered on those fronts.
