Great skinny Margarita's that
Great skinny Margarita's that didn't even taste low cal. Perfect for an early dinner after a play, easy walk from theatre district. Decent Mexican food and unlimited tasty tortilla chips and salsa.
Our server was very attentive. Would go back.

Fun for Group
This is a fun place for a group. There are 3 levels - club scene, dining, and salsa dancing. The food was good but not extraordinary. The drinks were very good - not watered down and the service was impeccable.

Best night ever!!!
My boyfriend and I went there for his birthday. We were both very pleased with the service, the ambiance was great, romantic, the food was delicious and the mariachi guys were fun!! When I made the reservation at Opentable I asked via the webpage that a dessert be brought to our table after our dinner to sing my boyfriend happy birthday, honestly I didn't think that my request was going to be honored unless I personally said something to the waiter but to my surprise after we finished our dinner, the mariachi guys, the waiter and I believe the manager came out with a dessert and a candle singing happy birthday to my boyfriend! It was great! After dinner we went upstairs for some dancing and we also had a great time there! Amazing night!!

The food was not the best
The food was not the best of Tex-Mex vegetarian, but it was good enough to say that I'll come back, might choose a different plate though.
The 3rd floor for Latin Dance was nice, really worth to visit again for some energetic dancing.

Guacamole & Sangria!!
One of the hidden Gems of Manhattan. Great food and drinks. Plus the night club.

The ambience was nice! The portions were small for the price! A chicken quesadilla cost 14 and could barely feed 1 person! The house margarita was awesome and wasn't watered down! The staff was very friendly and accommodating! Overall was a good experience!

I really enjoyed my experience at Iguana. I booked my reservation for four people for one of my best friend. The food was excellent and our waitress who was 7 months pregnant was so attentive and friendly to our group. After dinner the Mexican guys came around with ice cream and sang Happy birthday to her. They even gave her a sombrero. It was awesome. After dinner we went downstairs for drinks and dancing which was the highlight of the night. I and my friends will definitely go again.

I highly recommend this restaurant. The food, service, and ambience are top notch!

Had a great time
Went here for a graduation lunch. Graduation ran over time as expected thus making us very late for our reservation. Iguana staff was so understanding. We had a fairly large group with several different requests yet the service was outstanding and fast. The food was delicious. The guacamole was made to order (we like spicy and it was definitely perfect). The drinks were great and very strong (not watered down at all). I can't think of one complaint for the place. I was afraid it was going to be very "touristy" being that it's close to Times Square, but it wasn't. It was a great atmosphere and not busy at all.

I wanna go back to Iguana! :-D
Met a friend here for a "catch up" dinner. The restaurant is cute and decorated nicely - tile-topped tables, pretty hanging lights - and is huge! Three floors, with dancing and live music some nights. We were there on a Tuesday night, so it was pretty quiet, but I think there is the potential for it to be really noisy when it's busy. Anyway, we ordered from the prix fixe menu (appi, entree, and dessert for under $30 per person) and the food was really good, particularly the coconut flan. Drinks were good as well. We were just a party of two, but I could see this is a great place to bring a group - lots of space, fun atmosphere, and great food and drink! I'll be back soon!

Great Mexican atmosphere
Love this the first time we went last summer. Found it while just walking around NYC. Came back with friends when we were going to a show on a Sunday afternoon. We were surprised and pleased to see that they had a Brunch menu. Very reasonable. It was quiet so we could hear each other talk and service was the best. Perfect dining experience.

Visited Iguana before a Broadway
Visited Iguana before a Broadway show. Service was very attentive. Table side guacamole was tasty, as were margaritas (there are 26 different flavors). Food was hot and flavorful. With so many restaurants in the Theater District, we really just pulled this name out of the hat, but everything worked out just fine. I would recommend this restaurant. There is a dance club on another floor, but it didn't interfere with our dinner.

Ambiance, food, service all good. Prices in line with food in mid-town manhattan. Decor fun. Lots of music. All in all, very good

Food was fantastic! Great
Food was fantastic! Great service. Virtually empty for brunch, so we had the place to ourselves.

Excellent Food & Attentive Service
We arrived an hour earlier than our reservations, but were accommodated without a fuss. The service and food were excellent. The waitress was even kind enough to remind me after I paid the check that the gratuity was already included in the bill because of the size of our group of 7. I would definitely recommend to others if you're in the Times Sq. area and like Mexican food. We all had a great time.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I enjoyed the restaurant . Staff very attentive and accommodating. Food was good so are the drinks.
Love the dance floors with the different music great . I recommend it on FaceBook and to other friends.

Great food, noisy
The food was excellent: steak fajitas, burritos.. After a while (8pm) the place was full and there was a lot of noise around. The desert was nothing special.

Celebrate Good Times
Iguana has a celebration feel to it where you can be "loud" in any of the dance areas or have a romantic dinner by one of the corners in the restaurant.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing. Would recommend for any occasion.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice little spanish restaurant
I went to this restaurant once before, with my family. I came back because we enjoyed it so much the last time. They have a great selection of margaritas, most made of fresh fruit puree. The tableside gauc was also really great.

Great fixed price dinner
After watching a terrific Broadway matinee show it was a real treat to have the very moderate priced fixed price dinner, with good choices. Portions were large and food excellent. Drinks a little expensive. Waiter was very friendly.

Food and Music
Went on a Monday night to listen to Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks ('20s-'30s jazz). They were playing on the second floor, which contains stage and dining area, bar, then the dance floor (not ideal layout). Atmosphere was good. Food was very well prepared for this not-run-of-the-mill Mexican eatery, good quantity, and reasonable for NYC (we all went for the price fixed menu): black bean soup, salad, enchiladas, fajitas, roast chicken, and an amazing fried ice cream for dessert. Enjoying great music and food in a relaxed atmosphere...what could be better!

Great food and free entrance into the latin and/or top 40's club.

Not Your Average Lizard
Great food, a fun atmosphere and out of this world made fresh at your table guacamole!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This spot has always been one of my favorites in Manhattan. I love the ambiance and the food is excellent! Particularly the Atlantic Grilled Salmon - very tasty! The atmosphere is energetic and can be a little loud at times but it makes for a spirited night out. I have and will always recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
The servers are very professional and friendly as well. You won't be disappointed.

Great night at Iguana
I have nothing but high praise for Iguana. I made a party of 6 reservation, we were seated right away. Wait staff was wonderful, our waiter was patient, knowledgeable & gave great recommendations. The decor and ambiance were lovely. The drink menu offered quite the variety: margaritas, mojitos & sangria with a choice of flavors were a highlight for me. Our meals were great, no complaints and most of us are picky eaters. I highly recommend the guacamole, it is made fresh at your table and totally yummy! I made the reservation online and mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, around dessert time the staff showed up with a dessert with a candle in it, mariachi players and a large sombrero for the birthday girl. It was perfect.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had tickets for a 7:00 show so we arrived early and there weren't many people there yet. Service was prompt and the freshly made guacomole was very tasty. We've dined there before but hadn't been there for awhile.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great atmosphere,
Great food, great atmosphere, great service and an all around great experience...! Guacamole made to order at your table! Butterscotch and many other flavors of margaritas! Even a Mariaci band! THANKS IGUANA

Went for the Jazz
The food did not disappoint even thogh first choices were no longer available at 945. Music was excellent, service impeccable, atmosphere downstairs where I ate was very pleasant. Good value!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun and good
We have been here before and will go again. The food is good and plentiful. The wine list is extensive and priced reasonably. Music downstairs. This is a good place for a fun evening
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Music of the Night
If you love music from the 20's and 30's played by an eleven piece band you will love Iguana on Monday and Tuesday nights. Vince Giordano and his NightHawks are an absolute treat. The show starts at eight and there are three sets until 11. The food starts at 7 and getting there early, with reservations, gets you a better seat. We have always gone with 4 to 6 people. It works very well. And if you need to talk with old friends, do that before the music starts or during the two breaks.
The food is really very good and not very expensive. The wine is good as well for a proper price.
Altogether, a wonderful evening.

NYC Dinner & Dancing Combo
My bridal party took me out to dinner at Iguana for a cozy early party, then invited more friends to join us in the upstairs Salsa lounge at the latter part of the evening. Over all service was great; and food & drink are excellent. The decor and structure in the restaurant is beautiful and the upstairs lounge perfect for a party.

Good Mexican Cuisine-hard to find
Being a transplants from Texas, I am always in search of authentic Mexican food. Even though the chips were not special, other things were done quite well, very fresh and tasty.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was fast and friendly, and we had no problem making our curtain time at 8:00 on a Saturday night, when we sat down to eat at 6. The bar menu us extensive, and all the food and desserts that we ate were delicious! Highly recommended.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Tasty Mexican and Amazing Music
We went to hear Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, a phenomenal band that plays historic charts of 20's and 30's music with a verve and tightness that just creates joy. They are there every Monday and Tuesday night from 8PM to 11PM. They spent years at Sophia's in the Hotel Edison and recently moved to Iguana.
So the food was not this issue. Until we tasted it. Some of the best Mexican cuisine I've had in the Northeast. And the staff are friendly, fast, and even entertaining at times.
A wonderful evening.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was Super
Sunshine and Luis where so nice with us.
We are coming back

Great spot for after work hook ups
Iguana is one of my fav. On last visit appetizers were a little saltie.
12/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great find
On a one night stay over in NYC and we found Iguana. A great meal, exceptional service, and a great value!
