We got seated pretty quick, but waited to give our order. A table of 6 sat next to us after and get there orders taken before us. Once I spoke with someone he made sure the rest of the night was smooth.

We came in for brunch at 12:45 with a group of 4 and were able to get in right away with our OpenTable reservation. Service was prompt and attentive--never an empty water glass or coffee cup. The chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, and salmon burger were all fantastic!

I’ve celebrated my birthday for years at Blend on the water so I decided to give Blend Astoria a chance. Last time I will go there. You get reservations for a reason but you end up waiting almost an hour to be seated. There is no room what so ever in there for all the people waiting to be seated. Everyone’s on top of each other, complaining and angry. I felt like I was rushed through dinner so they can sit the next angry couple who’s been waiting. Just never again!!!

Lovely place. Walk in and the greeting was not that great from
The Hostess,appetizers and food was good and presentation also. Waitress was ok but somehow at the end of service couldn’t find her so another waitress had to take the bill. After the charge and ready for payment the other waitress upgraded the percentage 22% while charging and luckily I’ve seen before I’ve signed the pad that she tried to grab the pad away after I’ve sign before it’s all complete and as soon I seen what she done. So I gave the waitress money instead. Just seem to sneaky. Management Might have to take a Look about waitress tapping there own tip percentage.

I believe that our waitress name was Gabby. She was super awesome and very attentive. The staff is so good at clearing the table when you’re finished with a glass or plate. Awesome customer service. I would recommend as well as make reservations again.

I went to Blend on Valentines Day with my girlfriend. Great vibes & great service. We love the food there we’ve visited about 5 times in the past. One thing we didn’t like out this experience was that they had pre-fix menus at $70 a person + taxes + 20% tip with very little options not to mention options that’s they already have on on there regular menu. I had Maduro Balls & Pollo A La Plancha normally this only cost about $38 dollars. So how did they decide on the pricing ? Also they failed to mention this special menu when reservations were made so maybe call ahead.

I would recommend it to a friend, but would warn them. The food isn't as good as it used to be.
I ordered the crispy chicken and it was quite dry. My friends ordered the churrasco. They felt it wasn't seasoned enough. The drinks were delicious. Staff was friendly and welcoming.

I would recommend, however my husband and I ordered drinks, the waitress came over, and when she was about to place the drink down, the bottom of the glass just fell out. The drink wasted all over my husband outfit ,shoes and coat. UGHHH, great way to start our dinner huh 🤔. Umm the waitress disappeared and another man and lady came to clean up the mess. However, NO ONE AT ALL CAME OVER TO APOLOGIZE. MANAGEMENT DID NOT EVEN ACKNOWLEDGED ANYTHING. How crazy right. They act like nothing happened. Anyway the waitress came with no acknowledgement of what happened. Because we were hungry, my husband and I still ordered food. Meanwhile we were thinking someone would would apologize or acknowledged this happened but NOPE, NOTHING ( Very disappointing). Oh that was our Thanksgiving Dinner. Not sure if I would go back to Blend, their service and management is unacceptable.

Blend Astoria is one of my favorite restaurants in Queens! The drinks are always on point, and the menu is simple and straightforward, and also delicious! The service is great and they are constantly coming around to remove plates or refill your water.. very attentive. Standouts are the red sangria, and the salmon. The ambience is relaxed yet still an elevated dining experience. Perfect for a special occasion, or just a date night with your girlfriends or a special someone. Will definitely have my birthday there next year!

I decided spur of the moment to take my daughter out on a date this past Saturday night. I arrived about 40 minutes prior to my reservation and they were still able to accommodate us. From the hostess (young Colombian girl, and the manager and his attention (😊) - and of course the food - everything was impeccable. I’m a customer of all 3 Blend’s and truly love them all. Our go to dishes are the crispy arepa app; salmon or tilapia dish; steak; or chicken breast dishes. Don’t forget to order their Sangrita. It’s one of their best and strongest drinks on the menu. Buon Apetit 😉

Unprofessional is the word for this restaurant. The Hostess has no idea what their doing. We had a reservation for two , we got there 5min early and they didn’t sit us till 15 min after. Also we requested a table upstairs but they gave us a table downstairs. Instead of apologizing they said “ I understand you requested a table upstairs but this is all we have.” I asked to speak to The floor Manager and he was not helpful at all. In the hospitality business you have to try to accommodate your guest as much as possible. What’s the point of making reservations? The floor manager could use more training. This restaurant could be better if it in fact it goes under new management. The floor team is just not professional. I’ve had better experience at the Long Island location than here. Waitress only checked on our table once. The drinks and food was good but service is horrible!

Will not recommend this location.

Very pleasant young lady at the front that greeted us. It was a great experience, it’s not a perfect score because our server took a good 10mins after we were seated to come to our table. It was great for my Friday night date night.

Ambiance is great, food was good, but service was not. Our server took a while to greet us, took our order then barely came back to the table. When my boyfriend asked what was in his drink she didn’t know what the spirit was and had to grab a menu to inform him. I also advised to course out our meal because we decided to order a bunch of apps but everything still came at once, we felt rushed.
On top of that when the busser came to the table he took my fork and my plate away then then asked if we had more food coming and we said yes and he put the dirty plate and silverware back in front of me. Also is was our anniversary and they don’t nothing to make it special..

Music was extremely loud when dinning under the live band/dj booth. Gratuity is automatically thus service doesn’t merit the automatic 20%

We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday and when we saw the menu, it only featured brunch items like eggs and we didn’t come for eggs. The waitress told us that there were no other choices to eat when we asked her and didn’t offer any alternatives. The menu was for Saturday and Sunday and ended at 2:00pm, but we were at the restaurant on Monday at 2:30pm. My husband was very upset and we had to go to another restaurant.
