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%

Everything was great except the server kept going mia. That was annoying, it took so long for her to great us that the girl at the door had to great us and take our order.

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.

Beautiful experience they do come to clean up tables fast. Almost making you feel like enjoy eat your food and hurry up. However if you are buying drinks looks like no rush. Overall everything else was awesome. Dessert menu didn’t have much of a variety if your lactose intolerant. Just an FYI . Food was excellent would definitely go again.

The food the ambiance was just perfect. Gaby is ultimately what made our anniversary the best ever. She recommended awesome drinks (sangrarita and passion fruit capirinaha) and the most delicious food choices (camarones a la diabla). We will definitely be going back!

From the customer service to the food, I truly enjoyed eating at Blend Astoria. This was my first time eating at this restaurant and I must say this WILL NOT be my last. The food had so much flavor, and the drinks were made nice and strong(try the lychee mojito). Great restaurant in the heart of Astoria.

I do not like disorganized places! My server Alexis was awesome!
I made a reservation on Opentable. When I arrived I stated my name and told them of my reservation i thought since the woman standing there looked on her screen to verify my reservation actually checked me off as arrived! But it appears she marked me as a no show! With Tip i spent upwards of $200 for a party of two and BLEND ASTORIA decided to mark me as a no show. perhaps Opentable charges a fee and thats why? I have no clue! - Will not be returning - Thank you

It was an amazing time! Love coming here! The waitress was so sweet and attentive! I was there with a friend and they brought out the wrong dish he ordered and because of that waitress felt so bad that she gave us a round of drinks on her! That was so sweet of her! I will definitely continue to come back here! Keep up the good work! :-)

We were in town from Chicago and Memphis, and chose this place based on what we saw on the internet. Let me tell you WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED. Hidden gem in Astoria

We will be back for sure. Keep up the great work
