Couldn't think of a better place in Pensacola to have our post vaccination party. We dined at Iron 3 -4 times a year since it moved downtown until Covid. A 15 month break was really difficult. Everything was up to their very high standards.
As usual an exemplary visit!!
The food was amazing! I’m so glad I made a reservation, because the restaurant and outdoor seating was packed on a Thursday night. There was a pretty long wait time between dishes, but it was worth it. I would definitely recommend this place for a date night!
Great food and service as always.
My birthday celebration dinner. Always top-notch dining. Service amazing. Comp'd appetizer and dessert were appreciated and delicious!! Loved the added touch of the Happy Birthday, Angela greeting on the menu. Special place that we will continue to enjoy!!
Great speciality cocktails. Well though out plate presentation. Excellent service. 10 out of 10!
Living in Pensacola for a while this is the first time I have been here and let me tell you it was amazing. The prices are a tad pricey but to be honest it was well worth. Spent 185.00 to include tip. Had the salmon with a creole sauce and that was one of the best dishes I have had in a long time. My date had the red snapper and she said it was amazing. We had the Nutella pie I am not a Nutella person but wow it was amazing the sea salt on top was a great addition to the pie. The cocktails were amazing. Last but not least I forgot her name but are server was so knowledgeable on the dishes that she had it feel like a 5 star experience I forgot her name but hopefully management can figured it out we sat down at 4:45 pm on a two top table. Thank you GOD BLESS!!!!!
This was our second time at Restaurant Iron. The first was a memorable experience, this was not so much. We again sat outside on Palafox which at times can be a little noisy, but has the ambiance something like being in New York city.
Food was mixed. My wife had White Truffle fries for an appetizer. I am not a fan of Truffle oil. For her main course she had Gulf Catch & Spanish Chorizo Cioppino, which was much below par. The fish did not taste fresh and the bread they served with the dish was burned and soggy. They offered replacement bread, but that did not offset the overall quality. I had the IRON SmashBurger which included fries. The burger was exceptional, one of the best I've had in a while. Their fries (without Truffle oil) are very good.
Service was attentive. However our food food a while to come out after ordering. They were very attentive in trying to correct for the bread issue.
This is still a very nice place to eat, especially being able to sit outside as the pandemic rages on.
This was great experience . The food was amazing and the staff was great, then the atmosphere was beautiful . I highly recommend IRON....thanks for the great anniversary date experience for me and my wife.
Perfect meal and service as usual!
The food is always excellent at Restaurant Iron
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!!
Can't say it enough. Well done - especially service by Hilary!
Great food, service and drinks. Have outdoor seating with heaters.
This continues to be my favorite restaurant in the Gulf Coast. Can't recommend highly enough!
Menu is always seasonal and fresh. Each cocktail is made to order and bartenders are knowledgeable about both bar and food items. Seriously the best restaurant in Pensacola.
A lady at the bar was speaking on speaker phone which i found annoying at a fine dining restaurant experience and wish the bartender would have intervened - that said I love Iron!
Let me start off by saying that the food was absolutely outstanding. I had the Marsala Braised Duck Roulade for my entree and it was hands down one of the best meals I have ever had. I was blown away.
I was very disappointed in the lack of standard seating available for my reservation. I had to update my reservation due to circumstances so standard seating was no longer available. We were seated at a counter table right by the kitchen so I had to look at dirty dishes for most of the dinner. This was less than ideal when you’re paying over $150 for two. The cocktails we ordered were mediocre and did not taste like we expected them to based off of their descriptions.
Despite the seating and the drinks, I enjoyed my experience and would recommend this place to friends and colleagues.
My absolute favorite restaurant in Pensacola! The food is wonderful; service is outstanding; and the ambience is amazing. We love Nick! Always such a joy!
Great service, great food!!! Special Valentine's Day menu was was perfectly portioned and the wine pairings could not have been better.
They nail it everytime
Everything was fantastic. The cassoulet, the salads and especially the tofu curry entree. It was super great! Nick took really good care of us without being obtrusive.
Food and presentation was exceptional!
Our server, Taylor, was GREAT!!
i had dinner with 2 business associates and everyone couldn't believe the amazing food and service we experienced.
Always outstanding, without a doubt our favorite place to dine in Pensacola.
We had a fantastic time celebrating a friends birthday. Service was outstanding, social distancing strictly adhered to and food was fantastic.
We’ve yet to have a bad experience and we have gone since the month Iron opened. Nick has been one of our favorite waiters- always attentive and top notch for service. Food 10/10 as always.
Fabulous! The staff and the food never disappoint!

Outstanding! Excellent service, incredible food! Danielle was our server and she was wonderful! Best dinner we have had yet!
Almost a year to the date since we last had a meal at Iron due to COVID-19. Not the least bit disappointed...superb service and food. Duck roulades with yogurt sauce and Demi glacé were succulent. Seafood cioppino was fresh, bright, and super delish.
Bailey s cream dessert with hot chocolate pudding was the best ever!!!!
Kudos to the chef and staff...they never disappoint.
During this time I ve had the take out menu several times. Which is excellent as well.
So glad to be able to dine onsite.
A perfect gem for Pensacola.
Always excellent in every way! My favorite place in town!
After a poor experience with reservation issues, we returned and the staff and service were amazing.
Iron never disappoints! They even printed a custom menu for my birthday! We are moving and I will misss coming here for special occasions.
Iron never disappoints. The staff is always fantastic and eager to help with choices. Drinks were perfect and food was on point. Best ribeye in town. First time eating at the bar, but they were great. This is our "go to" date night spot.
Great service! Especially Taylor!!
Fantastic. Most knowledgeable waitress ever!
Celebrated my husband’s birthday there & we loved every minute of it. Our waitress was great and attentive. Food & drinks were amazing (as always).
