I loved this place the first time I ate there and have recommended to friends...
this time, they were out of everything we asked for.....maybe cuz it was sunday but this was a big disappointment as my guests were from out of town!!
Probably will not return!!!
service also fair!!
Superb service and exceptional food… looking forward to returning with friends to enjoy again!
Neat ambiance and decor. Food was good but overpriced. Server was not very friendly.
Loved the decor and the cocktails... The truffle macaroni/cheese/bacon & brussel salad appetizers were delicious...
Loved everything about our dinner!
Tutto buono , ma attenzione alle patatine fritte con aglio, praticamente aglio con patatine fritte , per il resto tutto ok.
Dinner before theatre. The staff was attentive and efficient. Food was very good. Our party lingered at the table since we had time, and restaurant was very accommodating and nice continuing to offer water and checking to see if we needed anything else. Would go back here again.
Pasta meals good but steak was ok. Crab cakes were good too, lumps of crab not very breadie! And the flourless chocalate cake was very yummy!
The server never smiles.. pork chop was so dry
The food was excellent and the service was superb!! Matt our server and the hostess were genuinely awesome, incredibly sweet and charming!
Love the decor.
Service can kick up a notch.
Good menu but most dishes were low in salt.
Pork belly app was the best. Short ribs good as well. Pasta dishes need more flavor.
Can be very loud and with music background hard to converse. I would try patio seating for quiet.
There was a great table in the corner that my friend and I wanted to sit at. We had a reservation for dinner but they said we couldn't sit at our table of choice in the corner because it was reserved. There was a reserve sign on the table. Turns out it was just a prop they put there in case someone better comes in? They actually lied and said 4 people were coming in. Never happened. This practice of putting fake "reserve" signs on a good tables has always been a turn-off for me.
Love the ambiance of this place! So romantic and trendy! The drinks were very tasty although a little pricey. Food was great and good sized portions.
Great food, nice vibe the truffle mac and cheese as so good also the clams excellent.
Took my 11 year old grand daughter out for her first ‘fancy’ dinner and she loved it! My daughter in laws did as well!! It was a great choice and I’ll definitely be back!!
Great food and setting. Waiter was nice but kept forgetting our drinks. Manager was great and comp’d a drink and checked in on us. Overall we’d go again.
The service was excellent but the food, was meh. The pasta was hard and the pork was like little hard sausages thrown in. Food was 3-1/2 stars at most.
USC UCLA football game. Our experience was outstanding. Service was great food was great.
Once you're inside the restaurant, all is good. Driving there is probably a much better experience. We walked there, and it was a little sketchy. Nothing we couldn't handle, and well worth it once we got inside and enjoyed the delicious food we ordered. Love the room. Great service. Thanks!
A little pricey, but overall would give it another go. Food was excellent as was dessert!
Our server was amazing. She recommended the short rib gnocchi, the house favorite, and hands down it was the best meal. We ordered the peach salad as a starter and that was delicious as well. Loved the ambience and there was a parking lot right across the street from the restaurant. $10 before 7pm. Easy to get to, excellent service, knowledgable server, great experience. I'll be back!
Everyone was so attentive and everything we ordered was so good!
Delightful evening and a lovely general manager!
Needed to grab a quick bite before an event at The Los Angeles Theater Center. This was perfect. Great and filling salads. Service was very friendly and efficient; stopped back after for dessert and coffee. Service couldn't have been nicer. Will definitely be back.
Perfect DTLA restaurant for no frills casual deliciousness. Try the pasta, it was so so good. As a matter fact, just try everything. It was all great.
Food was great. Not sure why the need to guarantee reservations 72 hours in advance for $25 a head. Was not that busy. But food was excellent.
The food was delicious, however the fettuccini dish was a tad too salty. The drinks were inventive, creative and tasty!
The service was impeccable, I would say almost too quick to bring out our dishes. Overall, I would recommend Blacksmiths.
Food, drinks, service, everything was great! I can’t remember my waiter’s name at the moment, but he was great and added to the experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and would come again!
Nice ambiance, very overpriced in a very sketchy part of DTLA.
Very disappointing. I had visited Blacksmith's a year ago and loved it. Now it's a trendy, overpriced restaurant with mediocre food and nice servers who don't know anything about food or wine. The actual dinner menu is very different from what is reflected online. They no longer offer octopus or squid and should update their online site to reflect this. The Mussels & Clams was a dish with mostly tomatoes (campari and regular sized) and a few clams an mussels. It should more appropriately be called a tomato salad. The Braised Short Rib was tender, but not flavorful and also a very small portion- looked smaller than a year ago. I ordered a glass of wine and left a small, tasting amount for my friend because he was getting a cold so shouldn't sip from my glass. We called our server to fix a wobbly table, and before we could say anything he grabbed the carafe that had only a drop of wine in it and poured that drop into my full glass, so that I could no longer drink my wine because he inadvertently spread the cold germs into my glass. I know this was an accident, and the servers were nice. But when we asked about food or drink suggestions he didn't know much at all. The restaurant is too expensive for mediocre servers with smiles but zero knowledge about food. At the end, we were still very hungry and ended up having street tacos later that night. The restaurant is posh and trendy, but the food is so so and too expensive for the miniscule and bland tasting portions.
Don't let the neighborhood or the exterior of the building get in the way of experiencing this hidden gem of a restaurant. Food, drinks, service all exceptional. Parking lot right next store. We went early before a performance at the Ahmanson and it is only a few blacks away--too far to walk comfortably but an easy drive. They open at exactly 5:00 p.m. which leaves plenty of time to enjoy your meal and still make a 7:30 p.m. showtime. It's been around for over 2 years but they aren't actively promoting the restaurant so you can easily book a table. We were pleasantly surprised to fine a place with this high quality food and drink that isn't crazy busy. Enjoy!
I made reservations here for my best friend's birthday dinner because I love their food and have had a great experience every time. This time exceeded all my other amazing experiences by far! The waitress, Rachel, was incredibly sweet and the chef spoiled us with the most amazing surprise dishes. All the staff was so friendly. Love this place!
Staff was friendly and food well prepared, delivered in a timely manner
Asked for a medium well steak got a rare steak. Asked them can the cook it a little longer they brought me back a steak that was smaller then my first one. $45 plate and they get it wrong and bring me back a smaller steak. Very disappointed. Brought the peppers $14 plate and only came with 3 peppers. The pasta was good but that was it.
Service was great. Food was delicious. Drinks were tasty and loaded.
Great menu, and the food is good. However, the ambiance was a bit off - some lights were not working, air conditioning wasn't on, and they had us in a pretty dark corner due to the light issue.
The food is good. Service is great. Only complaint is...don't come here when it's hot out. They leave the doors open to the patio so the hot air comes into the restaurant. Trying to enjoy your hot meal while it's hot in the restaurant makes it a very uncomfortable experience. Unless you like to be sweating while on a date or with friends while eating, don't come here when it's HOT in downtown la.
The gnocchi was incredible and I’m still thinking about the jalapeños. Place was amazing inside and the service was great. Can’t wait to go back.
