The Blacksmith consistently delivers an outstanding experience. We come to The Blacksmith every year for our anniversary and several meals in between. Great food, great service (a shout out to Dawn for our most recent experience) and a great location. If you haven't tried The Blacksmith yet, you really should. You won't be disappointed.

Overall decent experience but the food was nothing too special. Got the tomahawk to share and it lacked flavor. There were too many sauces on the plate distracting from the main event. Personal preference: our server was perfectly nice and professional, but appreciate someone who partakes in conversation more, especially for us out of towners. Positive: we made this reservation last minute so didn't have very nice outfits packed with us. No complaints when we showed up in jeans (with collared shirt & nice blouse). It was a good meal but expected more out of a nice steakhouse.

This was very good food in a great atmosphere. Service was prompt and friendly. The thing that was really off was the cocktail: the price, quality and not being informed. Dirty Ketel One is my steakhouse go-to. With blue cheese olives. Real blue cheese is the standard, for a good restaurant. In COVID, I've even had the server bring me regular olives and a side of blue, so I could make mine. Couple things went wrong here: the martini was $18, and a $1 charge for the blue cheese olives - have you ever seen that? A charge for olives? NEVER in my 30 years drinking this martini. The kicker? It was those gross jarred "blue cheese" olives with the hard center, some kind of weird processed stuffing. The server should have said "Olives are an extra charge. And btw, they are jarred blue cheeses olives." And that pricepoint is Vegas and NYC prices. It soured our whole experience to feel ripped off and the server's lack of transparency. Won't go back.

Dawn was the highlight of the whole experience. As two former servers, we may be a little more critical than most and she was beyond fantastic. The food was delish and the espresso martini was the best I’ve ever had!

The poke appetizer and ribeye were amazing! The New York strip was pretty good too. Ounces weren't listed on the menu but both of our steaks were huge. The bread pudding dessert was fine but probably wouldn't get again (maybe we were just stuffed from the huge steaks). Service and ambiance were great.

Bar service is really, really slow. Food is superb. Wait staff is overly pretentious.

Governor Brown has decreed that all bars and restaurants be completely vacated by 10:00 PM, plan accordingly.

I am so grateful that she is watching over us, how would we cope without her?

Blacksmith had some great food, some of the sides were okay but the steak and fried green tomatoes were amazing! Service was fairly slow but may be because of the pandemic. We were sitting a little too close for comfort to another table given the 6 ft distance requirement.
