    We celebrated my B'day at The Blacksmith. The food was excellent (but too much as we were over full....totally our fault!!!). The restaurant was super busy, but the noise level was great...we could talk!! The service was #1 and my Steak (ribeye) and fries was wonderful. The prices are above average....but so is everything else about The Blacksmith. Mahalo for a nice evening!

    The waiter we’ve had before. He is always attentive without being overly annoying. Food is alway wonderful. We were sat in an out of the way nook that I didn’t like. More like a walk way for staff o get to the back of the restaurant to wait on other guests.

    Everyone was wonderful and told us Happy Anniversary as soon as we walked in. Our waiter, Derrick, was fantastic as well. Attentive but polite and very respectful to everything we could have needed. This is our second year celebrating here and will definitely continue the tradition.

    Excellent cocktail ("Thai one ON", I think!). Very good service. The Osso Buco was 'fall off the bone' and very good, but I've had more tender (the meat, I suspect, not the chef). OH, the 'dip' for the bread was a bit too vinegary for my taste. Very nice ambiance not too loud, comfortable, relaxing, intimate. Expensive!

    Pro's: Dawn is a wonderful server, knowledgeable and skilled, fun and professional. Food is delicious, drinks are great too! Overall prices are high. Con's: The whipped mashed potato's have the taste & consistency of boxed potato's, not the real thing. Surprising for a restaurant of this caliber and the dollars we spend. This was our second time sitting in the dinning room to the left as you enter the restaurant and on both occasions, that room is VERY loud. However, we certainly will be back, we like this place.

    This was our first time at this restaurant and it certainly did not disappoint! From the moment we stepped in the door, everything was perfect. The hostess was polite and professional, the waitress was attentive without being hovering and the other wait staff could not have been any nicer! This is in addition to the food, which came quickly and was delicious. Not a single person in our party of 8 was dissatisfied with their meal. This may have been our first time at “ The Blacksmith”, but it certainly will not be our last!

    One cannot go wrong with the Blacksmith in Bend. The menu has great variety. The food is always fresh and beautifully plated. The ambience is warm and friendly. There is a good selection of wine, beer and cocktails. The service is always friendly and professional. Our server, Katie, was delightful and very efficient. This is our go to restaurant.

    Great food and great service. We wish the private party/group seating area was a little more private and quieter like the rest of the dining as it is difficult for the entire group to be a part of the table conversations.

    Our server was amazing. Super friendly and warm. Just the right amount of attentiveness. Food was ok. We just had HH starters so not a great test. Mac and Cheese was a bit dry. Next time we will order real entrees and see if they do better. Drinks were awesome albeit a tad overpriced. We will definitely return.

    We appreciated the variety of inventive choices on the menu, gluten free offerings, and an impressive array of meat, sauces and side dish options, especially appreciated for people with food sensitivities. Our server was a true professional, who patiently answered our dietary questions and had an exemplary tableside manner overall. And, best of all, the food was absolutely delicious!

    Our food was amazing! Our table was awful. It was a high 2 top table that was wobbling so bad that every time my guy cut his steak, our drinking would almost spill and I would have to hold it steady. Our server was awesome but she couldn’t make it any more steady. So great food but the uncomfortable table was a disappointment.

    UNhappy New Year! We just moved to Bend and thought the Blacksmith would be great to try based on the photos and menu...but...we were seated in a small room to the left of entering with no personality, too quiet and next to the bathrooms [nothing like the photos online]. That would almost be tolerable, but very disappointed with the food. My husband ordered the Halibut cheeks which were overcooked, I ordered Ossobuco with a great presentation, but probably cooked several days before and just microwaved too much....dry and tasteless. Luke warm soup but good salads and bread and wine. So disappointing. We won't be back....which is a shame since we go out often. The only saving grace was that our server, Ivy, was super nice! PS: It was also our anniversary and not even a token scoop of ice cream...oh well.

    Our server was not attentive and did not engage with us during the meal. When we had finished our main course, he walked past and literally threw the dessert menus at us without saying anything. When it came time to pay the bill, he ran a different check, initially charging us almost double. The error was corrected but little was said in the way of an apology. The food was fine, but after that experience, we would not recommend The Blacksmith.

    We celebrated New Year’s tonight and were so looking forward to a lovely dinner. The ambience was as expected, the service was as expected, but the food was average. 2 of us ordered the Kobe filet and 1 of us ordered the bacon filet. The Kobe beef had no marbling and wasn’t as tender as the regular filet. $80 for one filet isn’t small change. We expected great food, as we’ve had in the past here, but tonight wasn’t worth $450 at all. Will rethink next year’s celebration

    We ordered a variety of items one being the Tomahawk for 2. They had a mushroom side that was pretty great but a broccolini side that was extremely bland. It was just steamed with zero seasoning or flavor so we didn’t eat that-I’d go with the Brussel sprouts next time. Our Marsala was delicious as usual-I think they have the best Marsala in town. The wedge is always a favorite. The room we were in was the side (south end)room that’s a little more private and it is COLD in there. We left on our coats and I noticed the table next to us also had a couple people wearing their coats. The air feels like it blows down the side walls. That room is also very quiet and echoey - there was one person a few tables away talking pretty loud and it echoed everywhere-fine for us but if you want a more intimate setting ask to sit in the main part on the north side. Our service was fantastic and always has been.

    Wonderful evening. There was no rush as our server made us feel as the table was ours for as long as we wanted. Haven't had such a relaxing evening in quite awhile. The food was excellent, steaks so tender they melted in your mouth. Will definitely. go back

    Food is always fantastic! Unfortunately, our service was poor during this visit. Celebrated a birthday and was not pleased. However, would return as normally we have an outstanding time. Baked potato brought out 15 minutes prior the the meal and was then cold. The waiters “solution” was melted butter to “warm it” rather than offering a replacement or simply just reheating. No birthday dessert offered as always has been in the past (4 years in a row). Waiter seemed unhappy to be there and did not provide the level of service we normally receive at this great restaurant.
