Excellent service and a hearty menu add up to a great overall experience! A bit on the pricey side, but come early for the Happy Hour menu. Nice selection of salads and seafood items are nice alternatives to the delicious steaks...

We return to the Blacksmith Restaurant because of the quality experience. Comfortable, good food, and good service. When we reserve a table and arrive on time, we have always been escorted to our table without delay. Service has always been wonderful. Our preferred dining choice.

Service was efficient and attentive.
Food was well prepared with creative touches. Also made allowances to mix and match to create just the meal you want prepared just the way you want it.
Ambience was casual, comfortable and reasonably quiet.
Very pleasant experience.

This visit was just "ok". Food was a hit and miss among our party of four. Not sure if waitress was new to the business, but seemed to have terrible timing at all courses and on interrupting our conversations repeatedly. Oh well, giving 4 stars because we know better is the norm here.

It was hard to choose an entry since the menu contained so many excellent items. Special notice for the roses and complimentary hors d'oeuvre presented for our anniversary. We were seated in a very comfortable corner booth in a room that was relatively quiet although busy. Attentive wait-staff made for a very pleasant time. Prices were quite reasonable as well.

We were in Bend for my birthday. I chose The Blacksmith for dinner. The service was warm and excellent. They started us with a surprise Amuse Bouche that was very tasty! We had the beef stroganoff and ribeye. Both full of flavor and the ribeye was a perfect medium as was requested.
We were impressed and will return.

A fabulous experience from start to finish. We arrived a little earlier than our reservation, so we were seating in the waiting area (great comfy couches) and offered beverages. Dressed up for a night out, our hostess offer us the option of a ready table for two, or to wait a few extra minutes for a 'better' table for two. We opted to wait, which was absolutely worth it. We were seated in a cozy, romantic booth. Our waitress, Ashley was fantastic. The food was beautiful and perfectly prepared, and the wine selection was lovely.

Great restaurant! Our waitstaff was attentive and friendly but not overly so. She made recommendations to me for what I could eat since I'm allergic to dairy. They made the risotto specially for my dietary needs. The food was superb! Everyone around us was celebrating something whether it was job success, anniversary or birthday. Nice atmosphere, not too bright yet you can see your food. Highly recommended!

My wife and I visit Bend every year since we moved out west three years ago. We found the Blacksmith our first year and we’ll go back there every year for that meal until I’m dead. I’m 35, so let’s hope there’s many more visits.

First a big positive was no corkage fee for a bottle you bring that they don’t carry. This is for one bottle per table but worth and unusual for most restaurants. It is one reason we chose to go here. Their specialty is a “tomahawk steak” which is 24 oz rib eye two people can share. We are not big steak eaters but had this. It was cooked perfectly (we had it rare plus). It came with two baked potatoes and two sides. The service was not rushed which was great. Our server even took our order but waited until we told her we were ready fir it to be cooked which was great as we ordered appetizers and enjoyed our wine for awhile.
Overall it was a good experience but the menu tends toward the steakhouse type menu which is fine but not our first choice for eating out. If someone is though this is a great choice.

From the minute our group of 5 walked in, to the minute we left, our experience at Blacksmith was top notch! As a group of 50-plus-aged women, it was refreshing to have so much care and attention given to us. My experience in bars and restaurants is often disappointing in that I feel “invisible” compared to the youthful customers. I can say with certainty that I did not feel the slightest bit invisible at Blacksmith.

Excellent service, delicious food that was prepared as requested. Our server was delightful and attentive, but not intrusively so. The meal was spaced so as to never feel rushed. Good selection of entrees. Our friends had salmon and halibut which which they were very pleased. My wife loved her steak but would have preferred her fries to be not over the delicious sauce. My pork chop with Brussels sprouts and polenta was superb! An excellent restaurant for a quality dinner with friends or for a special occasion.

3rd time-others very good but this time not very good. I had brined pork chop which was an orange sized ball that was very tough and not flavorful. Cajun medallions was good as were salads. I grill pork chips frequently. I use 1 1/2 to 2 inch bone in pchops which gives better flavor and evenly cooked. This was not good at all-I'm not usually a complainer and have never sent something back, but could have with this. Richard and Vicki Johnston
