    Have been coming to here since it opened and something was off or has changed. The oyster appetizer was overcooked, and preparation wasn't well executed. Tiny oysters are not separated from the shell and overcook before the breadcrumbs are browned. They are destroyed when eaten. The bacon wrapped steak was overcooked to nearly medium well (ordered medium rare), and the bacon was still floppy and not very cooked. The halibut was very dry and underwhelming. The server was very good and comped my meal, but when the cook dropped off my re-cooked steak some time later, he said I would get a free dessert, I didn't. This was my 41st birthday celebration dinner and I was fairly disappointed.

    The Blacksmith has been my go-to steakhouse in Bend for many years. I think the Northwest Ribeye, even with the 10% price increase over the past two years, is a great value for a quality steak in Central Oregon. In my 15+ visits, once was I not thrilled. The sauce, mushrooms, and horseradish mashed potatoes are fantastic together. The service is always solid, the wine selection is varied (so a lot of fun), and the ambience is great. I’ve been telling myself I need to stop by just for the burger but I never have.

    Atmosphere is very nice, not too bright, mellow feeling, people aren't packed in tight, etc. Food is, as always, excellent. They added a cheese plate since we were there last and on that plate, they had 4 bacon wrapped dates, that I believe had goat cheese in them as well. Oh. My. God. To die for! Seriously, they're probably a pain to make, but if they offered a plate of those alone, even if they had to jack up the price, we'd be all over that!! I would probably eat myself to death if someone responsible weren't with me to stop me! Also, our waitress (Kira, sp?) was a total sweetheart!

    The Blacksmith has ambience and character, making it perfect for special occasions. The wedge salad and duck cassoulet were excellent. Our server was kept busy with a large party, so we could have used a little more attention, but she was doing the best she could.

    We usually get steaks when we come to the Blacksmith. Last night we both tried something different. My husband had Chicken Marsala and I had Pumpkin Ravioli w/Chicken. In both cases the meals were very salty. The salads and bread were delivered quickly, but our meal took over an hour to reach the table. Our server was attentive and kind. We usually love the Blacksmith and chalk this experience up to New Year's Eve. Unfortunately, special occasions are when you hope things are special. We will be back and hope for the experience we have had in the past.

    This was our 2nd time at the Blacksmith and it was just as fantastic as our first time. Our parents were in from out of state and we took them here because we lived the food so much the first time. It did not disappoint. My mom is vegetarian and our server worked with her to put together a meal for her small appetite. My husband and I enjoyed our perfectly cooked and seasoned steaks. Excellent all around!

    With the new chef we were excited for the handful of new additions to the menu but also happy they have the items they’re known for. We ordered the Tomahawk, chicken Marsala, and prime rib. All 3 were cooked to perfection. The sides were harvest vegetables, mushroom medley, fries, and a baked potato. Each side was flavorful and complimented the dish it came with. The wait staff was attentive but not bothersome, the food came out in a timely manner, the parties around us were having a good time but weren’t obnoxiously loud. You can always ask for a table in back around the bend if you want it pretty quiet. Blacksmith is a top 3 favorite for our family. It never disappoints.

    We dined at Blacksmith for the first time to celebrate my husband's birthday. My husband was greeted with "happy birthday" when we arrived which I considered very thoughtful. We ordered dirty martinis to start and my husband ordered an espresso martini to end the meal. Blacksmith has a very talented bartender! Both drinks were exceptional. The food didn't disappoint either. The wedge salad with tomato caviar was very good and our steak and fries entrees perfectly cooked. We will be back.

    We haven’t had a restaurant experience this good since before Covid. Most places are severely understaffed, which I understand, but for whatever reason the Blacksmith was on point. Even had two hostesses, which is unheard of nowadays. Steaks were cooked to perfection, cocktails were superb. Only thing I would have changed is a little better preparation on the Ahi Poke appetizer. No soy or ginger or onions. Server was excellent.

    Overpriced for the low standard of service and quality of food. Noisy back room with a table of rowdy guests that cursed constantly while we were trying to celebrate a family birthday with younger children. Service by server Katie was poor and her sassy rude attitude was unbecoming of a high end steakhouse. I don't know whether they were understaffed or what, but our food arrived luke-warm at best, with cold fries served with the burger... The skewer of shrimp was overpriced for tiny salad shrimp on a stick. Our Thursday evening celebration for our daughters 17th birthday was a big disappointment. Will never return to this restaurant again.

    My wife and I have spent every anniversary dinner with the Blacksmith (minus COVID 2021) for the past seven years. We moved to Florence 7.5 years ago and visited Bend that first year. Every year we have been blown away with your quality of service, professionalism and amazing food. Honestly this is our favorite restaurant in the U.S. Keep up the exquisite dining experience.

    Our anniversary dinner started off great with delicious appetizers, but took a rough turn multiple times. Our drinks were brought out wrong, our appetizers were taken from our table when we asked to keep them to finish them, then we ordered our entrees of two steaks. One came out delicious, but the other was absolutely terrible. Chewy, 99% pure fat, and otherwise not enjoyable or even edible for a $56 steak. We politely brought up the issue with our waiter who started arguing with us about how steaks were cooked. After a while she said she would take it off the bill and removed our uneaten “steak” from the table. We were grateful and finished our other meal. The bill came and we saw she had charged us for the steak she said she would remove that we didn’t eat. We asked her about it and she started arguing with us about how “other restaurants would not oblige for removing items from the bill simply because of our ‘preferences’”. We brought up the issue of the steak being inedible and 99% pure fat and how she had told us originally she would remove the $56 item from the bill. She continued to argue with us in front of multiple other clients and was rather degrading and not suitable to be working in a customer-oriented business where the client should always be first. We asked to speak with the manager and she refused to let us speak with her manager. Overall I was very disappointed with the service and would not recommend the restaurant to anyone else.
