Diner Reviews
  • "We always go to Iron Bridge for special occasions and occasionally for a nice quiet romantic date night. Their food is excellent, we have not been disappointed. The wait staff is friendly and professional and are always able to answer any questions regarding the menu. Size proportions are just right. We haven't gone for lunch yet, but I have heard from others that it is just as wonderful. When you hear someone say "there is nowhere in Warrenton to get a nice meal", send them to Iron Bridge."

  • "The Iron Bridge Wine Company has changed it's name to The Bridge Restaurant, and also changed its menu. While these changes were benign, the changes in service and the ambiance were not. We were seated at approximately 7:15. Our orders were taken fairly quickly, but our appetizers (2 soups of the day and a broccoli dish) didn't appear for over 30 minutes. They were out of the wine we ordered, and the "equivalent" they suggest was just OK. To compound the service felony, our entrees were not served until almost 9:00 p.m. We had may apologies, as did the two tables on either side of us. To the manager's credit, they did comp a second bottle of better tasting wine, and adjusted the bill. The lights flickered annoyingly all evening."

  • "Wine was good. Food overpriced. My husband ordered lobster mac/cheese and was quite disappointed with the portion."

  • "We went for our anniversary and the staff gave us a private table and comp champagne. The bill for two added up but the food was delicious and the wine list extensive. We will go again for special occasions."

  • "We were visiting Northern Virginia, going wine-tasting, & someone at one of the wineries recommended this place; we were delighted to find it on Open Table. We had no idea how long it would take us to get to Warrenton, so we made the reservation for 7:45 -- the staff was VERY kind & accommodating when we showed up at 5:30! Food was very very good indeed, especially the appetizers which were quite interesting & tasty. My "surf & turf" veal loin & Maine lobster tail was lovely; husband's duck confit was exactly as it should be. Service was outstanding throughout the meal. We live in South Florida, but if we ever find ourselves anywhere near Warrenton VA again we will most certainly try to come back (newly renamed "Bridge" by the way)."

  • "Had a great time and really enjoyed lunch despite the smaller menu. Had a couple of flights of wine which were amazing. Sat on the roof and it was beautiful. Service was excellent - we got complimentary champagne when we told them it was our anniversary. "

  • "This was a last minute plan to get together with girls friends. Wonderful choice. The food was fabulous. The service was great, not pressure to hurry. Will pick Iron Bridge again for any future visit."

  • "We love this restaurant. A new menu awaited us. Healthy eating was forgotten as we made our way thru the calamari, fantastic gazpacho soup, lobster mac n cheese (wonderful), crab cake sandwich, and angus burger. Had the California red wine flights -- Whitehall Lane 2010 Cabernet and Force of nature Tempernillo are our new favorites! Great sitting at the owner's table in the window to overlook downtown Warrenton. Wines are available for take out. Service was superb and so was the complimentary prosecco toast for our anniversary."

  • "Another truly outstanding meal and service! We went to dinner here for our 33rd anniversary, card signed from the entire staff on our table waiting for us. The food was soooo very good. On a scale of 10 we had a 12 overall."

  • "If you have a group of 6-9, hit the downstairs, the ambiance is nice, and despite somewhat cramped quarters, it adds something positive to the experience."

  • "Great food and service as always. Was initially disappointed by limited menu for Mother's Day but it got me to try other items that were equally as impressive as our old standby items. "

  • "We eat here all the time at all different times and it is always wonderful! They keep adding new specials to keep things interesting, but try to keep certain favorites. "

  • "Great selection of wines - the Pinot flight was delish! Our main course was served prior to our app and that was a bit weird but our waiter was excellent and made it right. The lobster Mac was great, quiche was good, but the calamari was way to greasy (I know, it's supposed to be fried) and a little rubbery. The most surprising thing was the fried ginger to complement the calamari - a great balance of flavors!"

  • "When they first arrived in town I would describe as a great find and value. Lately in the last year the menu has not changed and the quality has gone down. The lobster Mac and cheese which used to be excellent with a great cheese component and a heavy amount of lobster is now little more than kraft Mac n cheese with 2-3 pieces of lobster. I'll stick to Claire's in the future "

  • "I've been to Iron Bridge a few times now and have enjoyed every visit! The entrees are sometimes hot or miss; I ordered a $60 aged steak once that I wasn't impressed with. Generally, the restaurant, service, and food is very good and fairly-priced. The Creme brûlée with chocolate ganache is my reason for coming back!"

  • "Heading from NoVa, we thought stopping in Warrenton for a bite was a good idea before continuing on to Little Washington and Sperryville. We enjoyed a rooftop lunch with a wine flight, the oyster chowder, and fried calamari - all were excellent. The shrimp and grits were perfectly seasoned with very large prawns. My local rueben sandwich was amazing. Excellent find in a small town."

  • "My girlfriend and I shared a birthday lunch at The Bridge restaurant on a recent Saturday. The weather was so lovely that we asked and were seated on their roof top patio complete with an umbrella. We had such a lovely time that we were there from noon to at least 3 pm. The food and wine were great, and the service impeccable. A very attentive and generous wait staff. I can't wait to take my husband there for lunch to try the crab cake sandwich (his favorite)."

  • "We meet friends from Falls Church area for dinner since we live way out in the country. The upstairs is best for talking, downstairs is a bit louder. The wine selections are great and our food selections were excellent. The three course meal is a great bargain. Our service was excellent and professional. Great neighborhood gathering place."

  • "We had a great time and the service was great. The food is a little overpriced for what you get but the wine and beer selection was extensive. Good atmosphere."

  • "Beautiful restaurant. Attentive but not intrusive service and that is rare! The Mahi Mahi was delicious and the chocolate cake truly scrumptious. I had the mystery white wine and that was excellent also. Will definitely be back."

  • "Food was absolutely delicious. It was different with fresh ingredients. Hands down one of the best meals I have ever had. Our server was polite, friendly and knowledgable about the food. Our only complaint...not a fan of the rail seating downstairs. Uncomfortable and takes away from the intimacy of your seating. Not sure how it's set up upstairs but we will go back. Will probably call for a reservation so we can request better seTing or try the outside when it's warmer."

  • "I was with m parents who are a bit older. With the noise level it was difficult to have a conversation. The menu was small, but the food was good. Seem like a pick up place, but not in a bad way."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The food and wine is always superb at Iron Bridge Restaurant!!! The service has been an experience of excellent to simply fair. This was a simply fair experience as at the beginning of the night we waited at least 10 mintues for a greeting from the waiter, or anyone in the lower bar area as we were tucked away in the corner next to a stone wall on the back side of the bar. As the night progressed, the service seemed to be improving."

  • "This is a destination restaurant in Warrenton and worth the drive to get there. We had a small group and everyone was pleased with the food."

  • "From the Hostess to the Servers, the service was friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and the staff most personable. The food was excellent. My partner ordered the Rock Fish which was superb and I ordered the locally grown beef, also superb. I ordered a very dry vodka martini with cocktail onions and was served exactly that.! The evening was enjoyable, thanks to the ambiance and staff."

  • "We ate here after much anticipation and we all left slightly disappointed. The atmosphere was great. It was very hot and we asked to turn the heat down numerous times, which if you know me, you'd know that never happens. The service was very slow. The waitress knew nothing about the drink menu at all. The food was good but not over the top. This place gets so much hype in our local area and I'm not sure why. I don't think we'd ever go back honestly. It was a mediocre experience for a high price. There's many other places locally that offer great service and better food for the same price."

  • "Whether you are in the mood for a red or white, you will find a great collection of wines to choose from here. Don't just go for the wine though because their food is 5 star quality and taste. My girlfriend and I love this place for a special occasion or just to get out of the city for good food and wine."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food and wine offered solid choices without being pretentious or a poor value. My sea bass was very good, fresh and cooked well. My dining partner got a cheese burger that was clearly premium, size, preparation, cheese and roll, with very good sweet potato fries. There was a good selection of wines by the glass, and all were good values."

  • "Another wonderful dining experience at Ion Bridge. The special Butternut Squash soup and their signature Caesar salad were very good starters. The Rockfish special served with mashed polenta and the Crab Crusted Mahi Mahi off the regular menu were well prepared and presented. Service, as always, was top notch. About the only thing that detracted from the experience was how tight the upstairs level was. Since they removed the self-service wine bar, they crowded as many tables and chairs as possible in a relatively small space. We were seated at the middle of three tables neat the windows. Getting in and out of your oversized chair required you to be a bit of a contortionist."
