    The food was amazing for brunch. The service was spectacular. It was a small kitchen so I wasn't sure what to expect but it overachieved any expectations I had. I would definitely come back and recommend to friends. The atmosphere was fun and music made for a great Sunday!

    I had the best time! From the minute we walked in the door, the staff was so accommodating (we showed up with two suitcases as we had a flight out later in the day!) The drinks were quick, the food was delicious, the queens were amazing (and even stayed after to chat with us!). The manager checked on us, and everyone was so nice. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    Outstanding experience always! The food and drinks are awesome, a real feat! The wait staff is always on top of things… and very helpful! You will feel right at home in this gay friendly paradise! Look for drag brunch on the weekends! Dinner is only available Thursdays to Saturday’s and everything we tried was perfectly cooked.

    The food here is really supreme - we had the tempura broccoli as an app and it was perfectly crisp with a fantastic sauce. The drinks are all delicious (we tried about half the menu!) so you cannot go wrong. The staff is super friendly and goes over the top. We went for dinner on a Friday earlier in the evening before the club really got started, so it was perfect to be able to sit and hear across the table. Definitely recommend!

    I will have to say this is the worst brunch experience that I have had in quite some time. There was lack of communication from our server regarding food wait times and general communication as our experience went on. Our food took over an hour and a half to arrive and we received an update only after we had to go ask for one. Our server had changed due to or original server needing to work the bar (not communicated), and the owner kept pushing the blame when we spoke to other issues happening at the establishment. Look, I get it… there are staffing challenges across several industries right now. If you are unable to staff, be proactive, take less reservations in order to improve your guests experience. Please don’t try and shift the blame and not take ownership tho because that is simply not acceptable and a poor practice. I will NOT be back again for brunch.

    My husband sent myself and my sister here for Sunday brunch on Mother's day. We had never been here before and had no idea what was about to happen. as it turn's out Sunday is a Drag Disco brunch. The place was hopping and the Drag Queen was fantastic. The brunch itself was delicious and the service was excellent. I can't wait to eat here again.

    As expected, Blend did not disappoint. The brunch menu is top-notch and the food was fantastic. The service was fast and friendly and the disco tunes playing in the background kept the energy high. And the brunch drinks hit the spot - the cereal-themed iced coffees (with cold brew provided by Reign down the street) were delicious without being overly sweet and their bloody mary hit the mark.
