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!

Very much enjoyed the dinner at the Blacksmith. The food was outstanding. The service was a little slow and the noise level was a little high. Otherwise, everyone was very nice and we will likely return for another dinner.

My wife and I both had scallops with The risotto. Added caesar salad and a brownie w/ ice cream for desert. Also enjoyed a bottle of wine. All excellent. Service was great and at no time felt rushed. Plan to come back soon!

Was at The Blacksmith for Anniversary Dinner. Reservation at 7:30. By 8:30 we were asked if we could move to the bar as the the table was reserved again at 8:30. Steaks were alright, not great.

We were there on a Sunday at 7:00 and they were out of tenderloin so no filets. They said it was because of Valentines Day. But if you’re running a steak house that is just bad management.

Waitress was very welcoming. Took a while to get bread and water to the table. A quite large group of 10 blocked the pathway to the table and had to be asked to move. Same group was very loud and obnoxious. Food was okay, personally my steak was over half fat. My date ordered the surf and turf, her steak was great but the surf portion was lackluster. We couldnt find the Dungeness crab and the description of the meal said 2 jumbo shrimp, we received 3 normal shrimp and one shrimp tail which had us puzzled. Not a great value, good was lacking, service was decent. Wouldn't recommend to a friend and not likely to return.

Did not particularly care for having a view of a black curtain 2 feet in front of me. Our waitress was good but the servers I felt were just in a hurry to put the food on the table. Also did not care for being served my appetizer while my wife’s salad was 10-15 later. Main course was stingy for $37. Wont be rushing back there anytime soon

Very lovely Valentine’s Day dinner. They put red roses on the table which was a nice touch. All the food we ordered was fantastic from the playful crab dogs, tasty beet salad and the absolutely fantastic surf and turf dish. We had cocktails with dinner and they were expertly crafted. Wait staff very friendly as well.

As a local, I haven't been here in years and I won't go back. I had the salmon and it was quite salty and a very small portion for $30. I brought two bottles of wine with us and the tab for 5 people was still $300 which is totally ridiculous for the amount of food we had. I was a special occasion and that's the only reason we went here; however, I really feel that the food is way overpriced. There are a lot of other restaurants in Bend that I feel are much better and don't hit the pocketbook so hard.

Started with the cheese plate and enjoyed every bite. Ordered steak and fries with a side of brussel sprouts. Far and away the best meal I have had in many years. The steak was perfect. The fries had a chimichurri sauce on them that was amazing. The brussel sprouts with bacon was dropped quickly into a fryer for a nice crisp outside texture. Loved them. My new favorite restaurant in Bend.

If I were just rating the food, I would give it 5 stars. My steak was cooked PERFECTLY! It wasn't over seasoned or under dressed. My problem was with our server. We sat down at the table and it took at least 10 minutes for our server to come greet us/give us water, etc. I think our server might have been new because when we ordered our meal (appetizer and entree) it really seemed to confuse him. We also did not get offered any bread before or with our appetizer or entree--I had to specifically ask our waiter for it and he had an excuse like "I was under the impression you already got some". When the entree finally came out, it came out one by one, with my husband's steak coming out first, followed by 3 sides and finally my steak. We were missing another side (which was brought out quite fast). After all of that, my husband's wine glass sat empty after multiple passings from our waiter and finally we had to flag him down and ask for another glass. Overall, you come to a place like the Blacksmith for outstanding service and you expect great food to come along with that. While we got AMAZING food, the service was absolutely terrible. It makes us think twice about going back.

As always, The Blacksmith provided us with excellent food and outstanding service. In all the years that we have been celebrating our birthdays and anniversaries at The Blacksmith, we have never had a bad experience. If you haven't been yet, you should go. You won't be disappointed.
