Very disappointed. We ordered the "surf and turf", which was described as having a filet, jumbo shrimp, scallops and crab. The filet was just okay. The shrimp was nowhere near "jumbo". The scallops were the size of my little finger tip and the crab meat consisted of very small pieces. All of this was floating in a pool of watery "sauce". It was more like a gumbo with a steak thrown in.

We chose Blacksmith for our anniversary dinner and had a fantastic meal! My husband ordered the Tomahawk steak and I ordered the chicken Marsala. Both were delicious!! Our cocktails were fantastic as well. Somehow we managed to eat dessert so (peanut butter brownie) with two espressos and it was perfect to end our dinner. They did a great job with managing during covid too. Highly recommend!

Oh my where to start? The food was spectacular! Three of us had the filet with potato sauce and the flavor was amazing! Our other diner had the ribeye over mashed potatoes. His steak was slightly over cooked but the flavor was amazing! Must also mention Dawn, our fabulous waitress! Can’t wait to go back!

This was one of the best, if not actually the best, meals of my life. My fiancé and I celebrated our engagement here and the staff pulled out all the stops to be welcoming and congratulatory. I will not return to bend without paying them a visit for at least 1 meal.

One of our favorite Bend restaurants. We come here often. We always get the Tuna Poke and the amazing Brussel Sprouts. On our most recent visit we had the Northwest Ribeye and the Surf Turf. Amazing flavors, great staff, highly recommend.

The hostess got us a table and hour and a half earlier that our assigned time. The Peach Lemon Drop and other drink (something pink with jalapeño) we had were very good. Had the daily soup, butternut squash with Pumpkin seeds. It was very sweet. Daily greens were nicely dressed. I had the Chicken Marsala at our waiters recommendation. I could taste no Marsala wine in the sauce. It was strange because the sauce on my dish was the same as the mushroom sauce on the ribeye. The chicken was also breaded and fried, there really wasn’t much flavor. The restaurant is nice.

The food was exceptional and the service was more than we expected. I ordered their ribeye and my wife ordered a filet. The food was cooked to perfection and thinking about the food days later still makes me salivate. This was our first time eating in a restaurant since Covid-19 and it was nice to see the restaurant adhering to guidelines while still providing the highest quality food & service.

We came out to Bend for a mini honeymoon and had an amazing dinner here. We both went for the NW Ribeye. We can grill a pretty good steak at home but this is without question, the best steak and meal we’ve ever had.

They have phenomenal steak! They can improve on service- at the bar I got a great mixed drink, then had to carry it to my table - I’m paying $150 for dinner, please transfer my drink to my table, I should not have to do that. Table should be set, waiter should pull out my chair and place my napkin in my lap, etc. When you order the steak for two, don’t just bring an extra plate, split it for us if that’s how the chef is serving it- in the kitchen. I should not have to do this myself. Again, paying big bucks for a great steak but also to be SERVED. : ))

I sincerely apologize that you did not receive the level of service you desired. Please understand that restaurants are under a huge amount of pressure right now, this pandemic is difficult for everyone. We have very strict guidelines mandated by our Governor. These are not a choice, we cannot have preset tables, we cannot touch you, we cannot touch your items once they've been served. We want to SERVE you. I hope that when this is over you will give us another opportunity to impress you.

We were celebrating two birthdays and wanted to go somewhere extra special for dinner. None of us had ever gone to the Blacksmith but the reviews were great so we gave it a shot. We were not disappointed at all. The ambiance, staff, drinks and food all were amazing. The only thing I would change was the fact that we stated we were celebrating a birthday when the reservation was made, and our server also said they’d be bringing out something special for the birthdays, but we didn’t end up receiving anything. Definitely not a dealbreaker on going back, just would have added a little bit of extra fun to the occasion.

We were placed in a private area as there were 10 of us and it was perfect! Our server, Dawn, was excellent! She was able to tell us about all the food in great detail. She’s was very friendly and thoughtful! Took a bunch of pictures for us! Everyone lived their food too from salads to desserts. They make one of the best steaks in town!!!

We hadn’t been to the Blacksmith in years. 5 of us celebrating a friend’s birthday and it got off on the right foot with a rose waiting for her at the table. Everyone enjoyed their salads and everyone’s entrees were well prepared and delicious. The steaks were very tender and the scallops were cooked to perfection. We will be visiting the Blacksmith again soon

We were recommended this establishment and were not disappointed. For starters the Bourbon selection is very deep and diverse. They had Pappy Van Winkle in 2 vintages and several other Bourbons. Next was the appetizer menu of which we sampled Beef Carpaccio , Tuna Tartar and the most interesting Crab corn dogs, they were all delicious! The main course of Tomahawk ribeye for 2 with 2 sides was fantastic!
The service and ambiance was great. Our experience was fantastic and we will definitely be back!
