  • One disapointed night
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/29/2014
    My husband and I had great experience last time we were there so we go back again. The hostess seated us at the room with a crowd that was so loud so it was hard for us to have conversation. They only "allow" us to switch seats to the bar if we would like to do that. However, when we just walked into the restaurant not long ago, the main dining room was half empty. The starters that we ordered were great. The wine was great. The main courses were just okay. The bread pudding was not what we expected. It was just like a dense pound cake and on top of that, the size of the bread pudding was only ½ size of what we had last time we were here. I am not sure if I want to go back.

    Enjoy the food here so much, my friend and I ate two nights in a row. Steak night included fantastic sweet potato soup (or salad) and very well prepared steak (3 choices) all for about $20. Great wine selection too. Service once again was fantastic. Also the atmosphere is very nice!

    Unbelievable deal on Sundays. 3 course meal for $38 and its right from the menu (no limitations). You pick any starter, entrée and dessert all for $38. Food was fantastic. I had the mussels which were the best and my friend had the grilled octopus which was also very good. Out entrees were great too. I had the special monk fish. And then all desserts included for you to chose one. Yum! Service was also great!

    Great food. Beautifully prepared and presented, what there was of it. Had the Stuffed Anaheim Bell Pepper because it was a wonderful vegan option. However, only received 1/2 of a pepper with a small portion of stuffing. Delicious, but left hungry. Recommend purchasing each course, as the entree alone is not enough. Entire group laughed when a "scoop" of ice cream arrived in a 1x1" square dish. Hilarious! Did not like seating in a booth where one side was a low bench and the other side were chairs sitting higher. Awkward to have the guests sitting at different heights. Very knowledgeable server, especially with information about the wine selection. Did not feel rushed. Would recommend, just be advised.

    I love the fact that this restaurant sources from Maryland farms. I got the beef shoulder and it was excellent! I've come here three times and every time the food was delicious. The two times we came for dinner, the service was fantastic. However, when we came for lunch last year, the server forgot to put in our appetizer order.

    Great atmosphere and wine list. A must visit for true foodies, but not the place to take a large group. We sampled three entrees that included fish and the steak, and they were cooked to perfection. The salad portions were very small, but equally good. The cheese selection was divine, and my favorite part of any meal. The bread pudding was dry, but the warm apple tart was perfect. The flights of wine were a fun way to sample different wines from around the world. Great place for a date or a 'girls night out'.

    We had been here for dinner and were very impressed, but found that they also have a great lunch menu. The veggie sandwich and the quiche both amply portioned, and even though the accompanying salad was small it provided a perfect complement to the other food. For dessert the apple crisp and pumpkin panna cotta were both five star. Atmosphere was just as nice in daylight, even though it's on busy MD 108. There are some strategic plantings in front of the windows and the view beyond is of Clark's Elioak Farm. An awesome fall setting for lunch. Difficullt to remember the days when this was a biker bar!

    Excellent place to get some great wine and delicious food. The menu even offers pairings, which is nice for novices such as myself. The seating on the bar side was a little cramped. It seemed weird that a fancy place would have bench seating, but hey, that's just me. Make sure you call to make sure your reservation was confirmed, as ours was not. They did however, have a confirmation from a reservation I made two years ago.

    As always, the food and service was excellent. Our reservation was for 4:30 on Sunday, and we arrived on time. The dinner specials were not available till 5:00 PM, so we ordered some appetizers for the three of us to share and a glass of wine for each. The Chorizo Braised Calamari was superb, along with the Three Cheese Plate. We were just getting thrugh our appitezers when it was 5:00 PM and we ordered dinner. My wife and I got the New York Strip Steak, and my daughter wanted the Shrimp & Grits. Both steaks were outstanding, very tender, juicy, and flavorfull without being bloody (which my wife doesn't like). We hardly needed the steak knives they gave us to cut them. My daughter said the shrimp had a great flavor,mwhich just the right amount of spicyness. For our dinner wine we ordered the recommended pairing for the steak, and it was so good I bought a case to take home with us. Overall a memorable meal!

    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.
