To expensive. Service was excellent and the food good but the cost is over the line. 40 dollars for a meal and no salad ?

Went for our 30th anniversary dinner. Outstanding service—roses on the table as we sat. Great ceasar salad and awesome manhattan flight with a great choice of bitters. Food was great, although i would not get the scallops the way they were prepared again. Great time and great food.

Overall not a bad experience but the food selection was not very good. I had been told the steaks were very good but I found them to be average quality but over priced for what I received.
This establishment appears to be set up for tourists who don't mind paying top dollar for a medium quality dinner. The dessert selection was uninspiring.

Service here is always exceptional. The multiple servers were attentive and thoughtful. We enjoy the food, but not all steaks are above par. I had the NW ribeye and found it to be a bit tough/gristley — not what I’d expect from Blacksmith. My wife had the tenderloin which was excellent. Everything else was great as always.

Molly was outstanding, very attentive and not too overbearing. She handled our special needs for our elderly guests and special diet requirements with ease and empathy. As for the food, I am sure you're aware of the quality of your menu, but I must restate...outstanding. The steaks where to die for. Flavor and cooked to a true medium. Could be cut with a butter knife. We have been raving about dinner to all our friends.

I enjoyed our food and time here. Last time we were there it was dark out and I enjoyed the ambiance much more. We brought our own bottle of wine and the gal at the bar broke the cork in the half. The sommelier came out and was unable to get the rest out, and so had to push the cork in and then filter the wine out into a decanter. There were still bits of cork in the wine. It was a $400/ bottle of wine. :/ We heard the couple tables behind us had the same problem. Maybe more education on how to cork bottles. Not sure. Overall our particular server once we sat down was very good, the food was excellent and we will return!

Long-time Bend residents, we hadn’t been to the Blacksmith in years and years, and the experience went far beyond our expectations! First, the ambiance and environment felt special and unique. I had requested a table by the windows and it was spacious with perfect evening light. The server was gracious, knowledgeable and attentive. The food? Amazing! I ordered Chicen Marsala with some hesitation as I had a favorite from a shuttered restaurant that no other has lived up to. This one surpassed my recollection! The sauce was rich, full of mushroom and flavor. My husband, son and his girlfriend all had different steaks and were equally pleased with their choices. (The horseradish mashed potatoes, oh my!) We shared a delicious poke appetizer (my husband is still raving about it) and split Caesar and Smoky BLT salads, also delicious. (The tomato caviar on the BLT salad was just the right touch.) the dessert menu was also tempting, but we passed because we had plans with friends afterward. Next time we’ll have to decide between many of our favorites on the menu. And there will be a next time. The Blacksmith will be our new favorite go-to spot and a recommendation I can’t wait to tell friends about!

Four of us had a great meal. The restaurant had been recommended to us and we are glad we came. Calamari as an appetizer. Was delicious, although for $16 we felt was quite a small portion. We all had various steaks and they were perfectly cooked. Had a great time!

Jordan helped get our group set, even with all of the extra accommodation our group required.

Lindsay took attentive care of our group with poise and grace. She was accurate and checked in to ensure everyone was taken care of promptly. I greatly appreciated the restaurant staying open just for us for an hour post scheduled closing time; it did not go unnoticed 😁.

Blacksmith is one of our favorite restaurants in Bend. The steaks are always prepared the way you asked for them. Overall, you can never go wrong by reserving a table at Blacksmith.

The Blacksmith never fails to deliver. I will say again (I think I've reviewed before?), the polenta croutons are TO. DIE. FOR.

We watched the table next to us get the Fosters banana split, and I think that's a "next time" goal. Scallops were amazing, shrimp and grits excellent, surf and turf very good, steak was great but hard to cut? Maybe it was a not-so-sharp knife.

We are a chatty group (in-laws in from out of state) and so the entree plates were quite warm from - I assume - waiting for us to stop talking and finish our salads, but nothing was overcooked.

Will order the Chicken Marsala next time and see if it lives up to the hype!

Tami, our server, was amazing - as usual, and took possibly the best photo of our group that has ever been taken :D

The 24 oz bone in rib eye let me down, not as high a grade of beef as I was expecting. The tenderloin was good and the sides very good. Service was OK but nothing more than average. One of the three of us had to request a steak knife, a little strange for a steak house.

This is one of the top two or three restaurants in Bend. Consistently great food and service, the ambience is great as well, quiet enough to have a conversation. For sure it is the best Rib-eye steak in Bend. Enjoy your experience, you won't be disappointed.
