Outstanding. Great food. Steak was so tender I think you could eat if you had no teeth. Our server Dawn was attentive but not overbearing, very polite. Great food, great service! It is spendy but well worth it. I look forward to returning.

Went to The Blacksmith with my wife for a date night. We shared a Cesar salad which was pretty good. Never had soft croutons before but now I can't see myself enjoying those little rocks they consider croutons you get in the bags anymore. Both of our meals were brought out surprisingly quick. We had barely finished our salad and bread when the entries came out. She had the Surf and Turf which was incredible! The steak was unbelievably tender and the seafood and sauce were an awesome compliment to it. I ordered the Tomahawk. 24 oz of mouth-watering deliciousness that was devoured in its entirety. We will hands down be coming back here again for another date night.

The ambiance at The Blacksmith is cool and welcoming. When we want a special night out, it’s our go-to and hasn’t disappointed yet. The drinks are great 🍸 and the staff/service is excellent!
The food... the best. I had a New York cooked just the way I like it. My husband had the chicken Marsala- I may have to get that next time! Don’t miss the brussels sprouts as an appetizer or with the meal! 👍🏼
Chef sent a nice little bite of salmon mousse on a radish. Yes, it was delicious, but this demonstrates the extra attention you’ll enjoy at The Blacksmith.
Thank you - we’ll be back again and again!

This was our third time at the Blacksmith but our first outing since Covid restrictions. We were not disappointed. From the front room hostess to our server everyone was friendly. The food was excellent as always. We shared the filet mignon and it was divine...cooked perfectly. We will definitley be back.

Very odd that they won’t slice the Tomahawk Ribeye for two. It made it very difficult to share properly. Likely will not order that again.

Overall we have had a lovely evening. We had to send back my husband’s steak so ended up eating dinner before him by the time he got a replacement meal. But, it was still a nice meal.

We reserved a table for our anniversary and we were very impressed! Fantastic service and phenomenal food! Highly recommend the northwest ribeye and brined pork chop. The brussel sprouts with the pork dish almost melt in your mouth, so good!

The wine list was great! Our salads delicious. Our steaks were terrible, very fatty and not cooked to our requested temperature. The waiter did not return to our table to inquire if we were enjoying our meals and if everything was to our satisfaction. Expected way more from this steakhouse in Bend! Disappointing birthday celebration.

Absolutely a great place and experience. Foods were A grade to A+. Cocktails were delicious. House made ice cream was over the top perfect. Service was CasualPlus; a real treat to feel at ease in a 'fine dining' environment. I don't recal our servers name but truly, she made the experience feel completely relaxed and comfortable. Very knowledgeable too!

I feel it's important to also note any opportunity for growth. Pricing seemed to be just a touch high, but not at all out of line... just the high end of what we'd expect.

Great job to all!

We had a short dated dinner experience on our way through Bend and were absolutely happy with our pick. Great atmosphere, cozy dimmed lights, beautiful brick building. We had an a la carte salmon and surf and turf which were both excellent. The cheese plate starter was excellent as well. Only criticism would be that there is no vegetable at all with the salmon which is a little disappointing in that price range. Other than that- delicious flavors. Great chef!
