We went to Iguanas on a Saturday night just before a show. We had reservations so there was no wait time and the restaurant looked busy. The ambiance is very intimate, low lighting and Latin style decor. The service was good during dinner, again keeping in mind that they were busy. During dinner the wait time for drinks, appetizers and entree was reasonable. the complimentary chips and salsa are not special, kinda like Applebees, but they are free (I think). Service was friendly. My wife had the steak stacked enchilada and I had the shrimp scampi. Both were tasty, and the steak enchilada was nice and cheesy. Good size portion. They have 3 course fixed menus that you can choose from or do al a carte. We made it to our show and then returned to Iguana for drinks, this is where service lost some stars. Bartenders did not seem experienced and were inattentive. That can't happen in a midtown Manhattan bar. The mixed drinks were prepared with an unbalanced ratio. The crowd is very nice. Mostly happy hour crowd or folks grabbing dinner and drinks before a show like us.
Food, service, music everything was perfect! We had a blast.
Fair prices. Enough food to leave you statisfied, and it was BANGIN too!
My friends and I had a wonderful dinner at Iguana on a Monday. night, upstairs where the Nighthawks perform. I ordered fish tacos and a delicious house salad. The service was attentive but not intrusive throughout the dinner.
we went there to see vince giordano and the night hawks,,,but ate dinner first. the food was very ho-hum, but the serv9ce was good and the band was great!
Love Iguana! Always have a great time! I've been for dinner with friends, a night out with the girls, brunch before a show and every time they've never disappointed.
Iguana is very over-rated. It's noisy, food was lukewarm and bland, and we were very disappointed. Service was mediocre - we had to keep asking for water, drinks. Most surprising was the dessert menu - it had no prices! When we asked the waitress what things cost, she seemed uncertain and had to get someone else to assist. The next person said all desserts cost the same thing - $10. Perhaps they tell another table something else? We will not go back.
Amazing! Authentic and beautiful atmosphere with lights. It was a big place and had a lot of large tables great for big groups. Margs had 28 flavors and only 6 during happy hour. Really fast service.
I thought it was a bit pricey but great overall. I don’t have fir 50 characters or more
