Ate here a few times in the past and thought the food was really great and the service was good also. It is probably the best restaurant on main street, Unionville. However, my last experience was not as good. The food was still good and service ok, just not as good as I remembered. I would have given them a... More

Had not visited this bistro since the summer when it was busy and packed with clients. Over the years, we have made this bistro, one of the destinations we told folks to join us at, we were never deceived. I was wondering when we arrived at 7pm why the place was empty. As expected, food was great, all of us... More

chose Blacksmiths because it was 1/2 way between Newmarket and Whitby for a sisters lunch. Couldn't have made a better choice. The food was beyond amazing with flavour, flavour, flavour! The chef is truly creative with his food pairings, brie, cheddar, house made fig jam and baby spinach ... beyond average grilled cheese sandwich - spectacular, I just can't say... More

I have been here many times for lunch and dinner. A bit pricey but to me it is well worth it. Have tried many pasta dishes and The Blacksmith's Patter,Delicious.

Our "go to" restaurant for the past 8 years. The food has been consistently delicious and we've always been made to feel welcome. Great for couples, double dates, ladies night out or a nice afternoon lunch.

I attended Blacksmith's on 2 successive nights. The first with my colleagues and the second with my wife. Both times the service was exceptional and the food delicious... I am embarrassed to say I over ate both times! Calamari grilled to perfection. Salmon tartar is full on taste!

We had an afternoon drink, and reserved a table for dinner. The manager said he would put the afternoon drinks on the dinner bill. We returned at 6.00 pm and ordered our dinner. The service was friendly, and our memories of a nice meal proved correct. We ordered smoked salmon and wild boar sliders as starters. The sliders were really... More

Can't say how much we love this restaurant and the staff. Very casual and comfortable atmosphere. The food is absolutely delicious and the staff are very accommodating and will make any change/suggestions to suit your needs. I loved the trout with a beautiful arugula/beet salad and my husband loved his short rib dinner. The mussels and bread are absolutely the... More

The Blacksmith Bistro in Unionville got to be one of the best restaurant in the GTA. We were there a couple of weeks ago for a friend going away dinner and received a royal treatment from all staff from our server Chelsey, Arturo the Chef and even the Bus person Parveen. After sampling the Blacksmith platter, the beef Carpaccio (it... More
