I've seen this restaurantI've seen this restaurant forever, but never stopped in. It's got an old San Francisco vibe. Food surprisingly good. Gentlemanly waiters. Will definitely return.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood diningWe are here not a first time and hope not last. There are best and varied food in our neighborhood area, attentive service and friendly atmosphere. Thanks for evening.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the Mid-PeninsulaThis has been my favorite restaurant since about 1990. Anniversaries, birthdays, fun occasions of all sorts are spent here. We had 4 tables for 6 (24 total) and they did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome. Professional waiters make all the difference in a good restaurant. Everything I had was superb: Spinache Flambe, French onion soup (the best), Steak au poive, and Tiramasu for dessert. I NEVER order tiramasu at restaurants except at Iron Gate. They make their own and it is like a piece of heaven. Thank you Iron Gate for a wonderful birthday evening. Until next time! Pamela5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice, Quiet with good foodThe "Gate" is one of the area's better places to eat. Mostly the crowd is older - I don't know why this is because the food is typical CA with a little Med influence. Great place to go!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent RestaurantI love this restaurant.

The food was absolutely delicious & the service was impeccable. It is romantic, with soft lighting, although clearly fun for groups of all ages. Old fashioned, formal & delightful servers.
We started with the escargot, the best I have ever had. I followed that up with the onion soup, which was fanastic. My companion had the lamb loin, which he loved & I had the petrale sole, based on the waiter's recommendation..delicious! The only disappointment at all was the berry souffle. It tasted okay, but didn't seem quite done & didn't look at all like a souffle. Otherwise, perfection! They had live music in the bar, too!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood drinks at the bar. CaesarGood drinks at the bar. Caesar Salad prepared table side was good.

This was our 20th wedding anniversary celebration........and we enjoyed all 3 hours of our dining.

Complete with tuxedo'd waiters and mattre'd4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe opportunity to enjoy FrenchThe opportunity to enjoy French cuisine in a traditional setting with flawless service is rare. Iron Gate is one place where that opportunity still exists. A classic and well thought-out menu, genteel surroundings, perfect service, and wonderful table-side preparation creates a wonderful experience for special times.
Steak Diane, Cesear Salad, the Souffle, Bananas Foster, Veal Saltimboca are all standouts, but it is hard to go wrong. The specials are usually standouts.
