The Blacksmith Restaurant
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.
Amazing food as always. Great service. Our favorite place to splurge when in Bend.
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.
Amazing food and drink selection. Service was great. Loved the fact that it's a place for a nice date dinner and/or family with kids too.
Always awesome food and service!!!!
Great steak and great service, it was our anniversary and Blacksmith made it something special.
Best dining experience I’ve had in many years. Great creativity, presentation and quality. Wish we lived closer
Dawn was our waitress and she was phenomenal.
The food was interesting and creative. I loved the tomato caviar and the shrimp and grits. The bananas foster split was delicious. An old blacksmith shop in the center of Bend.
Always a great all around experience!!!!!
We had a lovely group dinner and the staff was patient as we talked and kept forgetting to look at the menu
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!
This is the third year in a row that we have celebrated our wedding anniversary at Blacksmith. Our server, Brooke, was awesome!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant any time, but especially for a special occasion!
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.
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.
Great food and service. Would recommend going to anyone.
The scallops with the risotto were the best I've ever eaten. Compliments to the chef.
The drinks were excellent; waitress very nice and we enjoyed the food. We will go back.
avoid the surf and turf, Wait staff was very good,
We loved the food! The atmosphere was nice and the staff was very friendly and on top of it. We will definitely be back.
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.
If the chef was available for a hug, he would've got one. The bread pudding was on point. Great place to eat.
It's an absolute pleasure eating at this restaurant...
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.
Cool atmosphere and amazing food!! The service was quick, food was steaming hot and drinks were tasty!! Can’t wait to go back!
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.
Treated a friend from out of town, happened to be his bday.. great spot! My first time as well! Would highly recommend
this is a superior restaurant... the flavors were exquisite, awesome presentation, hot and fresh ingredients. The service was outstanding, friendly and attentive but not intrusive, the place was clean, beautiful with great accoustics for enjoyable conversations. Love this place!
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!
Enjoyed our evening at the Blacksmith. Food was good and the staff very friendly.
Absolutely amazing food and great atmosphere! Food was prompt after ordering and was exactly how we wanted it prepared.
Every time I go there the food is amazing. Plus the have a great wine list.
This is a great place for food lovers with a unique atmosphere.
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 😁.
I was very impressed with the service. The food was AMAZING! Will definitely be coming back when we come visit Bend again.
