A head’s up for families-This place is Anti-kids! No highchairs for the little ones. Absurd! Who does that? I asked the hostess why and her reply was “I don’t know, we haven’t had them all Summer”. That’s a crock because we are locals and were...just there in June and they had them. Berlin is a family friendly town, but the Blacksmith certainly is not!More

I felt safe and comfortable dining here serval times during COVID from curbside car delivery to outdoor dining and getting our temperature checked before entering. Love the food, love the service, love the fact that they added more outside seating this year..

My brother and I normally enjoy coming here for dinner, as the food is excellent and service is usually great. However, yesterday we came with family and gave our names for a table. The hostess did not seem willing to give us a wait time...and merely said there were several tables ahead of us (she seemed a little dismissive when I asked). We waited over 45 minutes and still nothing; I went back to ask the hostess how much longer the wait was and still no wait time was given, just that the only two that could fit us were still occupied. We eventually left because nothing was done. I am disappointed in how this was handled. Please consider doing reservations in the future, as this may help cut down on wait times (and given how popular the restaurant is, it would help with scheduling and turning tables). I would also consider putting two smaller tables together to accommodate a larger party - there seemed to be smaller tables available outside that would have worked well. Not trying to blast anyone here; just make a few suggestions.More

Good service and friendly helpful staff. Nice atmosphere on the outside deck. Food was good but somewhat pricey. Ordered the seabass special. Was very good but a very small portion size for the price.

Amazing service and food. Everything we ordered was delicious and fresh. We had ceviche that was incredible. Love the focus on local ingredients. Really appreciate the server taking time to make recommendations especially for our kids since there isn’t a kids dedicated portion of the...menu, as well as highlighting menu specialties for myself and my husband to order.More

We stopped by for lunch while visiting Berlin. We heard others talking about the restaurant and decided to give it a try. They have an extensive drink menu, including many non-alcoholic spritzers. The Organic curried chicken salad and vegetable cheesesteak were delicious. Moderately priced. We...dined on the porch because it was a lovely summer day, but the inside seating area looked very nice. Signs indicate this restaurant is chef owned.More

Charming place, Outstanding quality , fresh ingredients! The menu is perfectly balanced with just enough variety to be exciting for any foodie! I must say, best chivechi and bread pudding I’ve ever had! We stumbled on this place serendipitously on our way from Pennsylvania to...Virginia…I’d come to Berlin again just for this restaurant! Kudos to the chef and waitstaff!More

Vegan paradise!!!! We just returned from Ocean City Maryland and stopped for lunch on the way to the beach. Blacksmith, a quaint restaurant downtown Berlin, AMAZING all around! The restaurant opens at 11:30 and when we pulled in at 11:20 there were two parties of...10 & 6 in line :) Now I know why, the food was gourmet incredible! We couldn’t decide if we want to eat outside or inside because both are cool environments. Outside had plants & ceiling fans and rattan furniture with cushions on a breezy covered deck. The inside had a really cool BoHo style with cushions, pillows and large round paper lanterns hanging all over the restaurant, it was hard to decide. The food & drinks were amazing!!! Our waiter Jason was wonderful and the owner came to our table and saw we ordered mostly vegan, and surprised us by making us a special baked tofu dish with tandoori. Love this place!!!! Highly recommend this amazing restaurant.More

We went, as many do, for their fabulous crabcakes. But when we arrived, we were told that because crab is so expensive now, they have discontinued serving them. We had shrimp tacos, which were good

The quality of the ingredients were outstanding. The preparation was very good with a few very minor misteps that would not discourage me from returning. We visited at a time when crab was hard to source. I appreciated the chef's decision to remove dishes instead...of substituting lesser quality crab. The menu is varied offering a nice range of dishes from shirt ribs to chicken, crab to burgers. The mac and cheese would satisfy the younger diner and the vegetarian and vegan options, beyond the standard salads and a soup, were nice to see. We thought the portions were generous for the richness of the flavors. In fact, the cevice could have been halved and I would have been fine with both the portion and price. The favorite deviled eggs were more filling than you would imagine and the cold artichoke soup was a refreshing dish enjoyed on a warm day. The lemonades (one jalepeno and one mojito) were crisp and cool with a fine balance of flavors. The service was friendly and prompt although I suspect they are a bit short-staffed for front of house -- a fate shared by many restaurants these days. The restaurant was a bit stuffy that day and too hot on the patio for us. I thought the cevice was a tad too sweet and the soup was a bit on the salty side for me but not for my wife. All in all, a lovely meal in a welcoming space.More
