    Tried something new last weekend for our Anniversary and was not disappointed. Had a good wine list. Our server, Chris (female), was awesome. She has a super personality and really made the experience a happy one. As a matter of fact, the hostess was really great as well. She greeted us with excitement - and considering our reservation was well into the shift, I was impressed. The food was very good and the presentation was good as well. The hits of the meal were the mushroom risotto and the crab bisque. I ventured and had the lamb shank. It was hard to rank, but that and the pork chop were recommended. It was just a great experience, and I typically do not give 5 stars for a review of anything. It would be best to reserve a table near the wine rack near the rear of the restaurant or the windows. Some of the table are too close to the kitchen and the kitchen runners.

    Have heard about this places for a couple years and finally was able to have dinner there. First, service was good and not too overwhelming and not too little, just right. My appetizer was wonderful; Crab Dressing with Shrimp; very nice. But that's really all that was "special", the Caesar Salad was VERY dry and uneventful, the pizza was good, just not anything special. Others at the table had the Pork Chop; not very flavorful and somewhat boring; Lamb was decent, again, just nothing special; and for the price, . . . really nothing special. Good wine list that we enjoyed. Very noisy place, couldn't hold a conversation without almost yelling across the table. "Paper" menus stapled together?, C'mon guys.

    Terrific food and presentation- my favorite, with easy access from downtown. Always a good experience with excellent service. Ahi tuna and crab bisque are exceptional. Outside seating is nice when the weather is cool. Across the street from Specs. Very nice private room (large) is available.

    Our evening started off great. We had reservations for 6:30 and were seated right away. Our waiter was attentive...at first. Once our food arrived, we did not see him again. He spent a large majority of his time with the table next to our table. They were drinking a lot of wine, we weren't. I ordered a bottle of Pellegrino. The waiter put it in a wine bucket to keep it cool, which I thought was a kind gesture; however, he only refilled my glass once which was before the main course was served. The bottle was not close to the table so I could not refill it myself. When he brought our check, I had to ask him to refill my glass. I do not think that we will return. There are too many other places with excellent service.

    We were very disappointed by the lackluster service we received during our most recent visit. It took over 10 minutes to receive acknowkedgement from our server, we had to get menus from another server, we had to remind our server that he had forgotten the bread service that we had requested, it took 40 minutes from the arrival of our appetizers to receive our main courses, despite us ordering both courses up front, and we received no acknowledgement from anyone in power despite the sommelier telling us that he would look into things when we aired our complaints to him and our server. We are longtime patrons of Clark Cooper Concepts restaurants, and this was by far the worst experience we have had.

    This is a must see to believe place. I made a reservation for two at 8:15 on a Friday evening. Drove up to the valet, walked in and the hostess met us there. We were immediately seated. The service was stellar. My date had a wine and I had their martini, she loved the wine and I had to have another martini. We had the grilled shrimp with crabmeat cornbread and Tasso cream appetizer. I had the Colorado red ruby trout with salsa verde and she had the Moroccan grilled shrimp. For dessert we shared a Madagascar vanilla bean crime brûlée. These were all generous portions and they were all at the level of perfection. I can truly say that I love this restaurant.

    This restaurant is among the very best, simply because the staff and management make the effort to deliver exceptional food (both menu and taste!), considerate and efficient service. At the conclusion of each dining experience I've had there, my realization is that this is really nice. And, I believe the value that is delivered to the customers is very rare. There is no other restaurant that delivers this combination of food, service and value as well as Ibiza.

The food was awesome (sea bass special for dinner and seared Foie Gras appetizer--YUM!) The atmosphere was lively and happy. Easy to get to with valet parking. Highly recommend.

    I was on a business trip with someone from my company and we were well taken care of at IBIZA. The wine guru, Marcus, was well informed and steered us to a couple of great bottles of wine. The octopus app was some of the best I've ever eaten and the warm beet salad with goat cheese was truly amazing. Also I could recommend the halibut and the lamb shank. Bravo to the kitchen and wait staff.

    The food and service were delightful, but the disrespect with which we were treated for making a reservation will keep us from returning. The shrimp appetizer was delicious! The crab bisque was unique and flavorful :) The lamb shank was so tender and delightful! My boyfriend had the grilled shrimp and pasta, and he enjoyed the shrimp but didnt care for the pasta very much. We arrived when there were only 2 other tables of diners in the restaurant. The hostesss was headed to seat us in the front dining area when I mentioned that we had a reservation. Once the manager heard that he asked her to seat us at table number xx (dont remeber number). Next to the swinging door to the kitchen! Two thumbs down regarding the ambience that provided us!

    Recent dining at Ibizia with an out of town guest from California who stated "Not to mention the great food available! The restaurant you chose had really delicious food (wasn't that risotto amazing)" . I thought the pasta dishes, seafood and lamb were a culinary delight. The wine list is extensive and fairly priced. A favorite restaurant to revisit often.

    Ibiiza remains unsurpassed in their approach to wine. The service, the list, the variety, the food compatibility and most importantly the value pricing all contribute to a well earned and continued expertise that is not matched by any restaurant in the city. My experience here continues to be excellent. My business guest and I each ordered an appetizer (blood sausage and cheese plate and a shellfish special), split a salad (unique caprese approach) and enjoyed an enjoyed an entre (the sea bass and the cod) as well as two different wines. The wine and the food made for another great evening and so I can comfortably guarantee that I will return again and again.
