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.

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.

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.
