The staff were warm and friendly. The waitress and kitchen staff were kind and considerate around some dairy and gluten allergies we had. It seemed the wait staff was always there at the perfect time to refresh our waters or to touch base. One of our favorite stops.

We went to the Blacksmith for our anniversary dinner and they did an outstanding job of making it special, from the special appetizer to the two red roses- will definitely recommend this great place for special occasions or just a casual night out.

I made this reservation for my Sister and Brother-in-law's one year anniversary. They absolutely loved your restaurant! From the food to their server Selby. Everything was amazing and it made their night.

It was our 55th anniversary and the service staff had 2 Red Roses waiting at our table. Our server was very well informed about the menu and wine list. Service was prompt but not pushy. This was our 4th visit this year and the restaurant has become one of our favorites.

Amazing dining experience! Staff was attentive and the food was absolutely delicious. Cider-brined pork chops with glazed brussell sprouts, along with the perfect filet were mouth-watering. The quiet ambience and well-appointed furnishings in the old smithy added a nice touch to our dining experience. Plenty of parking for mid-evening, and would highly recommend reservations. It was our anniversary, so when we arrived they had pre-placed roses at our table. Highly recommend this restaurant-well done!

Although the location and ambiance are great, the food is overpriced. The food also seemed overcooked on this occasion. It was our first visit to this restaurant, but with the other great options in Bend it would not be our choice for a repeat visit.

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 😁.
