Dessert was delicious! That was the best part of the meal. I was disappointed that I had a $70 ribeye that was ordered to be rare plus to medium rare. It was served medium to medium well. The service was good.
your rub eye at MP should win medals any where
your deserts were out of the this world. and
thank you for having Escargot on your menu,
it was good, although I would of preferred a
more traditional serving of it.....

restaurant !!! none .
This is... hands down... the best restaurant in Pensacola. Not a single dish went out of the kitchen with out the Executive chef ' watchful eye and signature. Amazing gastronomic delight from appetizer to dessert. Well done to the entire Iron team!
We had a great time!!
Amazing food. Wish they sold soft drinks. High end restaurant without the high end attitude.
With only 1 couple in the restaurant, the hostess was going to sit the two of us at the worst table in the restaurant. It was right next to the bar on the way to the bathroom/kitchen. A high traffic area to say the least. If I did not have a reservation, I would have accepted the table. When I complained that they were putting us at the worst table when there were at least 25 open tables, one of the hostess said that it depends. I didn’t ask on what as it was not worth asking. They then proceeded to sit us right next to the hostess area (just a thin partition separating the table from he hostess stand). The second worst table in the restaurant. I was bumped multiple times during my meal.
The waitress was the only redeeming item. She was excellent.
Based my experience, the limited menu selections (only 1 steak/chicken), and the poor seating by the hostess, I will not be returning.
I had been there before and ordered the steak and it was so bad that the waiter looked at it and didn’t ask how my meal was going. It was over a year between visits so I took a chance. My mistake.
I’ve been before, but the V Day experience was extra fantastic. I don’t even eat seafood, but it was all amazing! Service was impeccable!
We have few awesome places to eat. This is just one of the few that’s on the list! Absolutely delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant! Take advantage of making reservations. Enjoy!
As always an amazing resturaunt. For Valentine’s Day they delivered on cue another outstanding meal and drinks!
Escargot gnocchi was a popular appetizer and tasted amazing!
Best steak in Pensacola! Give the salmon Rillets a try too. So delicious!
Great service, great food.
IRON in one word EXQUISITE
Before joining the navy, I worked as both a private and a contracted chef. I worked all over the world at some the finest restaurants, such as Numa, The French Laundry, Osteria Francescana. Me being a young chef i was always fueled by the different cultures and the goal that the chase of higher knowledge of all kinds of cuisine is what made a great chef. Once I sat down at the counter of Iron and was served the Amuse, I watched as the chef orchestrated the kitchen, holding a very respectful posture, his skill and attitude reminded me of a lot of the world class chefs I had worked with previously worked with. The food, to keep this review short, was impeccable. I could see the heart and passion behind the food, making a lot of these traditional dishes his own and unique. Me and my fiancé were very pleased, even meeting the chef towards the end of the meal and having another customer buy our dessert I have nothing but great thought of Iron, keep doing Pensacola right, never stop cooking with a passion.
This was the most amazing meal I’ve had in the south! I can’t wait to come back to try more items from the menu!
Great atmosphere, our server was very attentive. Food came out quickly and we didn't feel like we were waiting much. We had reservations for 7:00, go to the restaurant at 6:45, they had our table ready for us and we were seated at 6:50. AMAZING experience as usual!
Thanks for a great Birthday Dinner Iron Staff!
I took my wife to eat at Iron. First time visit...We both loved it. Food, service and drinks are amazing!
Our anniversary dinner turned out to be a fabulous experience.
Anniversary dinner was great! Staff was so nice and courteous of the event ❤️ they even gave us dessert which was a Nutella pie.. delicious! Best steak I have probably ever had cooked perfect!!!! Brussels app was really good. The old fashion and the apricot cocktail were both super tasty drinks!
Restaurant Iron serves delicious food from an inventive menu. We have dined here on many occasions and it's always a wonderful experience. From the starters to the desserts, the food is sublime! The servers are well trained and do an excellent job. We heartily recommend Restaurant Iron.
Food and service were incredible. We will be going back
Great food and excellent staff. A little crowded due to limited seating. If you want privacy definitely not the place to go on a weekend night. Overall great experience. I would recommend it to others.
Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere. Super consistent and so over the top for the birthday dinner. The personalized menus really topped it off!
Food was excellent as always. Music level was a bit on the loud side, little difficult to carry on a quiet conversation. Service was slow, which we have never encountered before at Iron.
We came with friends for my husband’s birthday. The dinner was outstanding! The service was perfect. The waiter served the birthday cake I brought in beforehand. Everything was lovely! Great cocktails as usual!!
Great food and service. Can watch food preparation and talk with Chef Alex at counter seats. Try the Old Fashion!
Great food in an interesting place! Couple things weren’t quite right, but overall a great restaurant and would definitely go back!
Rest. Iron always on point. Even for vegetarians. Cocktails are best in the area.
Great place for a dinner with an old friend. The food was good, the service was better. Pacing of the meal was spot on; from drinks to appetizers through our meal and desert our service was attentive but not pushy. Everything came out fresh from the kitchen and the timing was perfect. My lamb was exceptional. I'll definitely keep coming back to Iron.
Favorite restaurant in Pensacola. While there are several good restaurants, Iron sets the bar as the best. Food quality, creative design, and unique palate pairings, I can’t speak highly enough about this restaurant. Excellent!!!!
Best food in toen
It was our first time here and it was superb. We moved here from Oahu and we were looking for a restaurant that had the same flair and class that we are used to and this place knocked our socks off and we can’t wait to come again. Leah was our server and she was a tremendous help as well. Every bite was an experience and so glad we chose to come there for dinner.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Iron. The service was what really stood out to me. Our server exceeded our expectations and was very attentive while not being overwhelming. Our dishes were great, but a few lacked the spark I felt they should have expressed, which would have put them on the level of the service. I was really looking forward to the foie gras, but was sort of let down. However, the ribeye tartar and brussels were delicious options. The steak of the evening was also delicious and I believe the celery root gratin may have been my favorite part of the meal. It was truly exceptional. Thank you for a great afternoon snack! ;)
Excellent all around! Never disappoints!
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend for a date night
We celebrated my sister and brother in laws birthdays here and the food was amazing as were the drinks. Highly recommend
Extraordinary, well thought-out and prepared food. Every morsel was wonderful. The Smoked Old Fashioned drink, the signature on menu, is spectacular. The only restaurant criticism is that it is packed, loud, much like a NYC bistro. While that may be the idea, it is not the place for a quiet night with plans for a long discussion. Tables too close for that. The food, however, may well be the best in Pensacola.
Salmon dish was excellent; server was sensitive to our time-constraints and made sure to have everything in place so we didn't feel rushed. Portions are appropriate which I appreciate. Iron is a go-to place for any special occasion. Have introduced friends to it and have never been disappointed.
I haven’t been here in a while. I’ve always enjoyed it, but haven’t really had the opportunity to come for a while. Anyway, a friend and I had dinner before the Pensacola Symphony. The service was excellent. To start, we shared the Caesar salad. My friend had the rich and delicious mushroom soup. I went all out on the grilled salmon with various beef preparations. Mine was delicious, and I know my friend liked her soup.Then we fell off the wagon and had a couple of delicious desserts. I had a pear tart that was out of this world. We’ll be back.
