    I was with a large group (6 people) so I understand that food might take a bit longer. But it took forever for someone to get us water or take our order (on a pretty slow night). Food took over an hour to come, which seems unreasonable even with a large party. With so many other great sushi restaurants in the area, I would not go back.

    Our favorite family Sushi restaurant was unexpectedly closed for the evening. We decided to be adventurous and try a "new" one (for us) in the neighborhood. The family agreed after reading reviews and ventures out. Restaurant was quiet - and we entered a little nervously. The cheerful waitress sat us and promptly took our order. Appetizers were delicious and the salmon sashimi was fresh and delicious. We liked several of the Sushi rolls and decided to eat family style. We chose 6 interesting-sounding rolls. We were pleased when the meal was served. Everyone approved - the rolls were fresh, plump and tasty. All-in-all a great experience. We will return.

    Iron Sushi is great for a quick but tasty Japanese dinner...a quiet refuge around the corner from the bustle of First Avenue. Definitely recommended!

    Service was so bad I would not recommend for anyone that has to eat and go. Over 1 hour before they even took our order. To order and eat 2 miso soups 1 order or edamame and three rolls, took 2 hours and 20 minutes. We were only eating for 30 of this. Ordering drinks was never offered to us. I would never recommend this place - ironically the food wasn't bad - maybe that's because we were so hungry we didn't care.

    Iron Sushi is always fantastic - the food is always great and a great value also. Service is excellent - ambiance is pleasant. I always get the bento box dinner with a hot sake. It it never disappoints. I have also been there for lunch and that too is very good. A reasonably priced Japanese restaurant with consistently delicious food. What's not to like?

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    We went here for dinner early on a Saturday evening. We were seated and greeted promptly, but it was about 15 minutes until we were able to order our food, and another 30 until our food came. When it did, one dish was cold (close to room-temperature) and the other was the wrong dish, so we had to flag down our server and send both back. About 15 minutes after that, we finally had the (hot and correct) dishes. In total it was over an hour from when we sat down until we ate. To be fair, the food was good. I did see that people who ordered sushi got their food right away. It seems they just don't have their act together in the kitchen. If you go here, stick with the sushi or make sure you're not in a hurry. We'll try somewhere else next tim
