    As usual, Iron does not disappoint. The duck, scallops and ribeye were all exceptional. The escargot remains a favorite, and the service was impecable.

    Service was good. Restaurant was crowded but not too noisy. The fried oysters, foie gras pb & j j, seafood stew and Cajun redfish were very good.

    Nick & all servers are amazing! Professional, knowledgeable, helpful, competent, & friendly. Alex runs a tight ship & it shows, with all coordinating like a loving family. Innovative, delicious, seasonal & inspired menu. Brian was chef-in-training & was on top of his game. We cannot say enough about how much we love this place, eat here every chance, and send friends. We live in KC Missouri!

    We love this restaurant for the food quality, fresh menu on a regular basis, the attentive servers, creative and personable bar tenders, and overall ambiance. They are firing on all cylinders! We have sat at a table or the bar on different occasions. Most recently, we sat at the bar for dinner. The bartender was creative in the drinks, knowledgeable about tequila (our current area of experimentation) and have great guidance on the recently added food menu items. Try the gnocchi and escargot! Delicious! The creole gulf catch on the menu currently has just the right spice level and crispy skin on the snapper. Yum! But know it will be gone soon. They are keeping the menu updated recently, which is fun but you can miss out on an awesome dish if you don't get in soon! I recommend reservations any night if the week. They can be busy every day and the venu has very limited capacity.

    We love Restaurant IRON! Danielle took excellent care of us. Spot on with the wine recommendation. We always enjoy sitting at the Chef’s Table. Superb teamwork! The food was incredible and creative. Always a “go to” for us.

    From start to finish, an excellent meal. Waiter was top notch...on top of everything from drinks, explanation of the various menu items, meal selections, to serving our selected dinners. He was exceptionally pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was perfectly prepared. The pork was tender, well seasoned and prepared. The seafood in the Cioppino was perfectly cooked and was in a sauce that was delicious! We'll be back soon for another enjoyable experience!
