    We were here for a birthday celebration. The outside is certainly unassuming; it almost looks like a family home, certainly not like an upscale restaurant. The interior is simply decorated as well, but that's where the simplicity stops. The food was absolutely excellent, and the wine selection was more than ample. Our waitress offered a number of selections based upon our preferences, and the selected wine was just what we were looking for. Definitely will be coming back.

    I have not found better mussels in MD or DC. They are plump and moist, and the broth has the right balance of garlic and other ingredients. As Iron Bridge is a wine store as well as a restaurant, the wine selection is very good, but $32 for a bottle of 2012 Achaval Ferrer Malbec before a $15 corkage is added (except on Thursdays when corkage is waived) is unreasonable. I can purchase this wine for less than $20 a bottle at another wine store. If I purchase a case, the price is discounted 20 percent.

    Iron Bridge continues to be a great place for a fine dinner or lunch. If you don't go nuts, you can have several glasses of wine and very nice dining experience for about 100 bucks apiece, including a 20% tip. I wasn't bowled over by the wine, but it was all interesting and thoughtfully varied, including an nice white from Gascony (I was warned it was a little sweet, and it was) and a good red Rhone. The menu is still sensibly modest. My wife and I agreed everything we had was really excellent, including roasted octopus, cunning little duck croquettes, and a lovely bit of roast pork. One does need to make a reservation. We were at the restaurant from 6:30-8:30 on a Thursday night, and the joint was hopping the whole time.

    This was a girls night out and we had an amazing time. The food was out of this world good. The service is always top notch. I love this place! I recommend checking out what is going on with the restaurant prior to making your reservations. We decided on the Tuesday because of the featured Winery that evening. Would have missed that if we stuck to the original plan of Monday. Also, spice things up. I have often given the server a price point and asked them to surprise me with a wine selection for the evening. I have never been disappointed!

    We went to Iron Bridge the other night with friends and well, everything was perfect. The food was wonderful. My wife had the octopus special and she loved it. I tried some too and wow. Please tell the chef and the rest of the kitchen staff that they are at least 5 stars. The service was wonderful. We have been to many restaurants over many years and it is the service that makes or breaks a restaurant. Iron Bridge knows how to please their diners!!!! We will be back!!!

    Ordered shrimp w/grits. 5 shrimp served w/ about 1/2 cup of thinly spread grits for $24 was a bit pricey. I wouldn't order that again. The key lime dessert w/ pineapple chutney was delicious; it was served in something which looked like an empty jam jar. The squash soup was nothing special. My friend had a delicious salad and pizza/.flatbread and received a complimentary dessert for her birthday. Her meal was quite good compared to mine. More "generous" portions should be considered.

    The $18 lunch special featuring several appetizer and several entree options is a very good value. While my favorite is the mussels appetizer, the mezze plate is a close second. The entrees include a large vegetable sandwich with a choice of several sides. As the restaurant is also a wine store, the selection is excellent. For after the meal, there is a strong espresso.

    Iron Bridge has been a favorite of ours since it opened. The food is always great. Jeanine is a fabulous server. On a recent visit had a pork tenderloin dish that was flavorful & tender. The Duck confit with beans & kale was also exceptional. There are new things on the menu to check. Highly recommend!

    A friend and I had a delightful quiet lunch here in the middle of the week. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. a distinct contrast to the bustling dinnertime activity. We shared the always scrumptious crunchy brussel sprouts. I had the tasty black bean soup and an asparagus salad that was quite good. My friend had a very filling and delicious hamburger. I haven't dined here for lunch in over six years and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I definitely recommend it.

    This restaurant was cozy and warm when you come in. Large dining table in the middle of the main dining area for large parties, which I would like to come back for. The food was reasonably priced for delicious dishes and a fabulous wine selection. My wife had ordered her dessert with the paired wine, and it matched perfectly - I'd like to see how the other pairings matched up. I will be coming back to the restaurant with friends in tow.

    The wine was ok, nothing special and reds served a little warmer then they probably should be. The food was fantastic though! The burrata was a newly discovered dish I will not soon forget, highly recommend! The main dishes and desserts were also very well made and tasted delicious. I will be back, but next time will probably select a wine for the table as opposed to the flight as it was just not up to the quality of the rest of the meal.

    Unfortunately the menu is small with limited choices, so you have to get lucky. The menu does change very often so many of the same items. Also the prices are expensive; a glass of Chalone Chardonnay was $15 and dinners ran $24 per person, so it was an expensive night out for dinner and a couple glasses of wine. However that being said, we love the Iron Bridge for the ambience, wine list and special occasions. Looking forward to the wine tasting.
