Diner Reviews
  • "Most of the food was okay. However, the Brussels sprouts, which were supposed to be sauted, were dry, charred/burned and inedible. When it was explained to the waitress why they weren't eaten, she was uncaring about them being burned. Would have liked more concern and the offer of a different side dish (at no additional cost). Had to ask that our table be wiped after a light water spill and crumbs from the bread being all over the table. It was obvious, but we still had to ask that it be wiped up."

  • "The staff is welcoming, polite, friendly, and professional. The food is the best not only in Bend, but anywhere. Their ceasar salad is the best I've ever had with grilled parmesan cheese and the most wonderful home made polenta croutons. Steaks are their specialty, they do it right and the meat is excellent quality. However, the Chicken Marsala was incredible. It was tender in the middle, crispy and spicy on the out, and had an amazing mushroom demiglaze that was flavorful, sweet, spicy and complimented the chicken perfectly. For dessert, a chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. And, home made almond brittle clusters to give it a wonderful crunch. Add some real, thick drizzle of caramel sauce to it and you have a master piece."

  • "With reservations, we got in and seated very quickly at 5:30. The service was pretty good, considering how busy they were. The food was fairly slow - we'll remember that for next time. The staff kept our drinks filled. Kudos for that, considering how busy they were. I had the ribeye; it was fantastic! My sons had the mac & cheese (with bacon) and the pasta entree. They loved the mac&cheese, but weren't impressed by the pasta. For dessert, we had the table-side fostered banana split, which was a great show and delicious (it's VERY rich, we didn't finish it). Overall, we were very impressed (in spite of the "meh" pasta), and would recommend the Blacksmith to all our friends. It's not inexpensive, but you do get what you pay for."

  • "We were somewhat hesitant when we read somewhere that The Blacksmith was under new ownership, but decided to forge ahead. Making online reservations was efficient and hassle free. We don't 'do' GPS., so finding the location was tricky for us. FYI, the door is on 2nd ST, not Greenwood. Plenty of area parking in a safe neighborhood. The staff was friendly and really knew the food and drink menus. Although all of the tables near us were full, the noise level was quiet, and there was plenty of privacy for our party of six. Our group ordered several dinner selections, and we tried bites from each one. Highest marks went to the Atlantic Salmon and Cider Brined Pork Chop. Our Crème Brule was the perfect ending for our wonderful meal."

  • "For the last 6 years my wife and I have spent 3 days in bend during valentines skiing at Mt. Bachelor and enjoying the bend night life. Eating at The Blacksmith has always been part of that tradition.. It was a fantastic restuarant from the beginning.. And last year it changed ownership and did some remodeling.. We were concerned that things would change and we wouldn't like it. Well that was not the case.. It actually got even better.. The food is amazing, the atmosphere Is perfect, and the staff are amazing! Even with my friends rehearsal dinner going on (with a lot of people on valentines day) the staff still did an amazing job taking care of us sitting in another area of the restuarant. Bravo!"

  • "Just moved back to town and getting reacquainted with the bend restaurant scene. The Blacksmith came with mixed reviews, and I can see why. Why nothing glaring stands out thats negative nothing really stands out thats great. Food was fine, service was fine, setting was fine. Of the "higher" end restaurants Id probably put this towards the bottom. If I want a quick meal, bev, or something low key I might go back, although for the price seemed excessive. I know everyone is different but I have ZERO problem spending good money for good food, but when its just bla... different story. Anyways, feel bad writing this but when I was looking for reviews I woulda loved to see something like this, not just a generic review or bad experience."

  • "My husband and I went for Valentines day and we were sat at the edge of the isle. I can only describe this as a fire hazard. My husband isn't comfortable (can u say anxiety attack?) in the middle of the room but the staff refused to let us move. The live music was so loud we couldn't hear each other speak and spent most of dinner in silence. The ONLY great part was the delicious steak for two we ordered but not close to worth the 100 bucks we spent. We will be sharing our experience with friends and family and hope to never return. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was fantastic. The only real complaint I could have is that we went the night before Valentines day for a romantic dinner and there was a baby at the next table over. Not really anything that could have been done by the resturant about this, but I didn't expect that at a place where the menu has a $60+ steak on it. Still very happy with the experience and the best service we had the entire time in Bend."

  • "We went here for my birthday dinner, they treated us like royalty. Our Wait staff was tremendous, checked on us continuously, and made sure we always had what we needed. Now the food...... I had the Tomahawk and it was visually outstanding and the taste event better! My wife had the "surf and turf" also outstanding! We had the Dungeness Crab Corn Dogs, they were as wonderful as we had hoped! We will definitely go back when in town!!"

  • "Our server had roses set out on our table waiting for us. I made a request for a bottle of champagne to be there waiting for us and it was set up beautifully. Our server also did a great job of making us feel important but also gave us our space to enjoy the experience. Restaurant was beautiful. No more club. No more disruption. Great time!"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I specifically asked the waitress about the surf and turf and she checked with the kitchen prior to answering; The baseball cut is square so when cooked almost rounds and newburg is a cream sauce. I received home plate with a greasy brown sauce and for $33 dollars and there was no vegetable to go with it."

  • "We waited almost an hour for our food to be delivered. We had a party of 7 our food was brought out by 1 person 2 plates at a time. My cell phone had fallen out of my pocket at the restaurant. I returned home to find the gps on my phone finding app putting it at the restaurant. I called there and they said no one has found it. I drove back with my iPad in hand to show them my phone is located in the restaurant. I sent a locator message to the phone, coincidentally the phone in the hands of the man sitting with the hostess went off. The vibe was super weird. The phone was not recovered. GPS doesn't lie. The phone was in the restaurant"

  • "We joined friends at the Blacksmith and had a wonderful time. The service was excellent. We were in the bar and enjoyed the "happy hour". Drinks and food. We each selected something different - sliders were the best we have had, cheese platter, mac and cheese, polenta fries, and steak fries were tasty and excellent presentation. Drinks were great too! Our server was very friendly and provided excellent service. We all we come back soon."

  • "My husband and I were in the area for an unrelated event that happened to coincide with his 30th birthday. I wanted to take him to a special spot that would be delicious and memorable. A friend who lives in Bend recommended the Blacksmith, and I made reservations through Open Table. The restaurant contacted me before the event to confirm any special requests. We showed up a bit early, and they were ready to see us. The service was attentive, helpful and cheerfully chill. The food was delicious- and we had a variety of dishes. Hard to say whether I liked the crab corn dogs or Chef's pasta more. The drink selection was broad, making it easy for all to find something they liked. I highly recommend the Blacksmith."

  • "Food was excellent, we had the Cesar salad, best in Bend, and the ahi tuna entree, which was also excellent. We also had the steak and fries, which was probably on the better steaks in town, perfectly cook and a good size. Overall, we had an amazing meal and would definitely recommend this place."

Everyone hugely enjoyed their food! The service was very good and they brought the dessert with a candle for our birthday girl. All in all a very nice dinner. We all said we would certainly return again!"

  • "Read the #1 reviews & decided to try. Everything was great at first; hostess, bar. Fell apart in the dining room. Wait person seemed disengaged, bordering on rude. Then, like day and night, the attitude and smiles came out (after the area we were in filled up). Too little too late. We've already nixed going back, ever."

  • "Everything there was spectacular. From the bloody mary that started off the meal, to the carpaccio appetizer and the steak entree. We enjoyed a nice bottle of Caymus with dinner that made for a perfect paring with the steaks. It was a Monday night so the restaurant was a little quiet, but the ambience was nice and the decor felt very comfortable. The service was perfect. The waitress checked on us just the right amount and kept everything flowing very nicely. Would highly recommend The Blacksmith to anyone."

  • "My girlfriend and I tried to eat here during dinner time and the wait was over an hour. We decided to go back on a different night. We showed up after 10 PM on a Saturday night, and the place was virtually empty. We sat at the bar and received very good service from an attractive blonde woman who I think was one of the owners. We met another patron at the bar and the three of us had a dining experience filled with great conversation and very good food. I was pleased with my ribeye steak and my girlfriend enjoyed her grilled albacore tuna. There were ample drink selections and the bartender/owner was very attentive. I can't speak for the dinner service, but if you show up after 10 PM on a Saturday night you will not be disappointed."

  • "Nice little place, the bar looks fantastic. Came one in June, and we enjoyed happy hour with a group of new friends. We moved here from Maui and this was the first place we wanted to go. When I booked, I did put we were celebrating our move here from Maui and our Anniversary. Plus our daughter drove up to meet us and we were celebrating her Birthday. No mention was made of this..it would have been nice to have a Little cake or desert for her. So was disapointed in that aspect. My pork was too rare for me, would have liked to be consulted on that, not that it wasn't good, it was. The rest of the food was presented well and very good. But it did not turn into a special night, as we had hoped. Will try again..."

  • "Our group had not been to Blacksmith in quite a while. Six of us arrived for our 7:00 reservation, and we were seated right away. There was live music, but we were seated in the next room (which we preferred) and had a lovely meal. The food was very good, and the portions generous. The ambiance was lovely, and we were all impressed and satisfied, and plan on going back soon."
