Blacksmiths Bistro

We ventured here for my birthday dinner on a Sunday night, and found it relatively quiet. The interior is rather dark but the decor is cozy and comfortable, and I really liked the different levels and layout of the restaurant.

We ordered a soup ($7) and the spicy salmon tartar ($14) to start. The salmon tartar was placed atop a bed of avocados, and was delicious and fresh, though I did not find it in the least spicy. The crusts of bread it was served with were as crunchy as croutons, and while I enjoyed that, it did not make eating it a very tidy endeavor.

For mains, I ordered the marinated flat iron steak ($27), which came in a sizzling cast iron pan. It came pre-sliced with roasted potatoes, jalapenos, bacon, carrots and string beans. While I did think being sliced and on a hot pan made the medium rare steak a little overdone in parts, it was still delicious. The dish was a bit heavy handed and after awhile, I found myself constantly reaching for my water glass.

The chicken fusilli ($22) was also delicious, but the linguine pesto ($20) was a bit of a disappointment. While the fusilli was creamy and flavourful, the linguine lacked seasoning and was rather watery.

As it was my birthday dinner, the waiter brought me a piece of their tiramisu. While not being one of the biggest fans of tiramisu due to my non-love of coffee, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it comprised of moist cake and cream and was probably one of the best ones I’ve had.

Overall, I had a lovely dinner at Blacksmiths Bistro and I would recommend for any special occasion dinner.
