Long-time Bend residents, we hadn’t been to the Blacksmith in years and years, and the experience went far beyond our expectations! First, the ambiance and environment felt special and unique. I had requested a table by the windows and it was spacious with perfect evening light. The server was gracious, knowledgeable and attentive. The food? Amazing! I ordered Chicen Marsala with some hesitation as I had a favorite from a shuttered restaurant that no other has lived up to. This one surpassed my recollection! The sauce was rich, full of mushroom and flavor. My husband, son and his girlfriend all had different steaks and were equally pleased with their choices. (The horseradish mashed potatoes, oh my!) We shared a delicious poke appetizer (my husband is still raving about it) and split Caesar and Smoky BLT salads, also delicious. (The tomato caviar on the BLT salad was just the right touch.) the dessert menu was also tempting, but we passed because we had plans with friends afterward. Next time we’ll have to decide between many of our favorites on the menu. And there will be a next time. The Blacksmith will be our new favorite go-to spot and a recommendation I can’t wait to tell friends about!

Four of us had a great meal. The restaurant had been recommended to us and we are glad we came. Calamari as an appetizer. Was delicious, although for $16 we felt was quite a small portion. We all had various steaks and they were perfectly cooked. Had a great time!

Jordan helped get our group set, even with all of the extra accommodation our group required.

Lindsay took attentive care of our group with poise and grace. She was accurate and checked in to ensure everyone was taken care of promptly. I greatly appreciated the restaurant staying open just for us for an hour post scheduled closing time; it did not go unnoticed 😁.

The service was superb. The atmosphere was great, noise level really good. Hidden in my risotto, under the 3 large scallops was a pancake scallop, tasted fine, just weird. Food was fine otherwise.

Blacksmith is one of our favorite restaurants in Bend. The steaks are always prepared the way you asked for them. Overall, you can never go wrong by reserving a table at Blacksmith.

The Blacksmith never fails to deliver. I will say again (I think I've reviewed before?), the polenta croutons are TO. DIE. FOR.

We watched the table next to us get the Fosters banana split, and I think that's a "next time" goal. Scallops were amazing, shrimp and grits excellent, surf and turf very good, steak was great but hard to cut? Maybe it was a not-so-sharp knife.

We are a chatty group (in-laws in from out of state) and so the entree plates were quite warm from - I assume - waiting for us to stop talking and finish our salads, but nothing was overcooked.

Will order the Chicken Marsala next time and see if it lives up to the hype!

Tami, our server, was amazing - as usual, and took possibly the best photo of our group that has ever been taken :D

The 24 oz bone in rib eye let me down, not as high a grade of beef as I was expecting. The tenderloin was good and the sides very good. Service was OK but nothing more than average. One of the three of us had to request a steak knife, a little strange for a steak house.

This is one of the top two or three restaurants in Bend. Consistently great food and service, the ambience is great as well, quiet enough to have a conversation. For sure it is the best Rib-eye steak in Bend. Enjoy your experience, you won't be disappointed.

As always, everything about our dining experience was outstanding. The steak was perfectly prepared with a green peppercorn sauce and garlic mashed potatoes. The brussels sprouts are always delicious (might have something to do with the bacon :) ). Our server, Shelby, was wonderful. If you haven't been to The Blacksmith, you should definitely try it. It is consistently dining perfection.

I’ve lived in town for about 10 years and I have been to pretty much every place except the Blacksmith. I can say I’ll definitely be back. I didn’t know the place was so popular so I’m glad I made a reservation. The service we received was excellent. It’s a nice establishment that I would feel comfortable going to casually or for a dressed up special occasion.

The service is spectacular! The wine and beer we had was perfect. Our dessert we each choose was the best we each ever had. But our dinner was a bit of a disappointment. My boyfriends steak and fries he said was ok. He wasn’t excited about it. And I ordered the scallops. The scallops were cooked to perfection but the risotto they were sitting on was nothing short of awful. If it had been just a cheesy risotto or I can think or at the top of my head 12 other ingredients that would have been better than the crab they add that makes it watery and fishy. And doesn’t go well with the delicious pea emulsion. Just dump the crab and it’s could be perfect. But considering it’s one of the most expensive items on the menu I excepted better

We had a marvelous experience. It started (and finished) with our server, Lindsey. She was knowledgeable, accommodating, very professional, and thoroughly pleasant. The food lived up to expectations as well. My salmon was cooked perfectly - medium rare, my wife’s steak was prepared just the way she likes them. Dessert and drinks were equally fine. Ambiance was nice as well. We were seated at a round table in the rear corner - just enough privacy and quiet to screen us from a large group around the corner. This is the second or third visit over the last eight years and, perhaps, the most enjoyable. We shall return.

Don't order the Ribeye. Mine was extremely fatty............had to spit out every third bite......all fat. Unbelievable. But everything else was great. Nice to have our cocktails served in chilled glasses. Emily is a great server.
