I went to take my boyfriend out for his birthday, and it was our first time at the restaurant. We both loved it! The ambiance, service and food were all excellent. We were consistently checked on, which I appreciated. They also brought him a treat for his bday, and sung to him. Would definitely recommend!!!

Gorgeous location on the water. No parking but the valet was very reasonable at $7. Great service, young salsa vibe. We sat outside and the noise level was greatly reduced. Fine choices...good quality food. We will be back😍

My meal was excellent. We went on a Thursday night, It was Grey Goose Martini night. I added some type of berries & enjoyed my drink. The Waiter was very polite but moving a little to slow for me. The tables and seating outside are a little too close. Overall good experience, a little pricey for me.

I cancelled my initial 7:15pm and changed it to the next available 9:15pm. We arrived around 8pm, the host stated the wait was an hour. I then requested that we be seated if something became available and was told that we had to wait regardless, so he would not put our name on the general list to be seated. He told us we could wait by the bar. We ended up getting a seat at the bar immeditely, we ordered drinks and food from the attentive bartender. I noticed about 40 minutes later people who came in after us were being seated. We did not complain and simply continued to eat and drink at the bar. PLEASE COME UP WITH A BETTER SYSTEM. The restaurant has an amazing view, great service, delicious food and pollo piononos that are not your abuelas(((YUMMY)))!

It is a great spot because of its ambiance. The food is good but expected better. The service is really good though and it also has valet parking, which is great in that era. I feel its over priced for the food but if you include the service ambiance and location then its understandable.

Nice place. Smaller than I expected. The food was good but pricey for the amount they serve. I had the crispy chicken, a guava mojito and the Tres Leche flan.
I made reservations and got sat as soon as we arrived.

Other than the awkward moment with the hostess( we arrived a little early),there were empty tables, but she informed us.. we’d be seated “closer “ to our scheduled seating
( huh?...)..the bar service a bit scattered.
And it wasn’t their busiest time.
Once seated , our hostess “melanie” was cheerful, accommodating, efficient.
The food , including desserts were delicious

Food was great, loved the ambiance , portions were perfect the only con I have was the service. I sat waiting for my waitress for 20 min, and then when she finally came she automatically assumed we wanted something free because of the wait, when I really wasn’t in the mood for a free drink to begin with I just wanted my order taken so I could eat! Luckily the food came out quick and it was delicious so I guess it balanced out?

Literally waited 15 mins for the server to touch our table. Ordered apps and a taste of wine guess which one came first? Apps. There was literally drops of water coming down from one of the vents directly above me and i told one of the waiters, manager came over and said “its very humid which cause the vent to condense” he pretty much game me and explanation and in other words to deal with it lol. Literally had to put my napkin over my shoulder so i wouldnt get wet.

Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves food. The food there is amazing, I always leave from there satisfied. The servers and hostess have great service, making everyone feel welcomed. My favorite thing from Blend is that it makes me feel like I’m at the Caribbean having a meal, the vibe there is so unique from every restaurant I’ve been to in NYC.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We went in the afternoon. I was disappointed because they only serve the mofongo dish during brunch. I ordered something else and it was okay. My husband's dish was really good and he enjoyed it. It was a little too warm for me in the restaurant at the time. Overall, the experience was excellent and we had a great time. Our server was very pleasant and willing to make our afternoon comfortable and memorable.

Our food arrived before our drinks. Cups of water were very small and only refilled once. The music was extremely loud like a boozy brunch type of feel but there were two large parties with children in the middle of the restaurant so the vibe was very strange and loud. The valet ‘service’ out front was extremely rude- they refused to talk to me when I dropped off my car and instead only handed me a ticket. When I can to pick up my car, I handed over my ticket and the guy handed it to someone else and then walked inside. I then asked another attendant if I could pay with card and he said ‘cash’. I asked how much and all he said was ‘$7’. I think maybe talking was painful for them. For all of the buzz and hype around this place- I was very unimpressed. There were no views of the river from inside which is where we were forced to sit because our party was larger than 4 (max amount per table for outdoor seating). Our waitress was nice and the food was just ok. Definitely won’t be back.

I came here for the first time friday night and I absolutely loved the atmosphere, it was pouring and the doorman held an umbrella over my friends and I’s head from the moment we got out of the lyft until we got to the front door. We went to use the bathroom and there was a lady giving us soap and towels to wash our hands... loved the waitress her name was Yaniri.. she was amazing!

I wish I could say it was a good experience. The food is good at a good value, drinks are strong but the service was lacking, dinner ended up becoming a 3+hr long due to the waiting to get service. At one moment I felt like they completely forgot about us. Noise level inside got louder as the night progressed. I will not be going back.
