We went for the steaks this week. They have smelled so good as servers went by the other times I’ve been there, I had steak lovers with me so we had us a steak night. My friend declared her filet the best she’s ever eaten and I think the bite I had of my son’s huge ribeye was probably the best I’ve ever tasted. My filet was wonderful but that ribeye was just insanely great!

Our service was awesome and overall we enjoyed everything.

Both the airline chicken and the filet mignon were superb. The steak was a perfect medium and the vegetables were crisp.
The service is both attentive and friendly.
Happy to note that Iron had several additions to the menu for spring,

First time to IRON for a 37th anniversary dinner. Most of excellent in every way. We were seated at a private two seater, perfect cocktails and appetizers. Our entrees (elk perfectly prepared, blacked red snapper!) were spot on. Nutella pie and French press coffee for dessert. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend!

One of the most pleasurable dining experiences I have ever had! The black garlic escargot is phenomenal! Also got to try food I never would have had the chance to, such as Elk and Escargot. Do yourself a favor go and definitely get the Nutella icebox pie!

Our reservation was for 645, it didn't start getting loud until around 8pm. It was absolutely perfect until then! We will go back and we recommend it.

Our first fine dining experience since the pandemic was a big event, and was very uplifting for our spirits. Everything about IRON from the food to attentive service was as fantastic as we could ever want. IRON is still a Gulf Coast favorite.

We went to Iron for our Anniversary. Food and service were great! Iron is a great special occasion dinner venue. Bottled wine prices are high but they have some good options by the glass. Ambiance was ok but we were off in one corner so we weren’t able to get the full vibe.

Best restaurant in Pensacola hands down. We get the snail gnocchi every single time we go. Perfect dish. We tried the Elk and it was prepared better than most NYC high end restaurants (I worked at a lot of them). Absolutely amazing staff as well! Can’t complain about a single thing :)

The service was amazing. The staff is very attentive and checks in at just the right intervals. They were very accommodating and helpful with whatever questions we had. The menu, although limited, a very good selection that night. I can't recommend the Creole salmon enough. I'll be coming back.

Great service and dinner was out of this world great. My wife had the Foie Gras and I had the Pistachio Crusted Grouper. Amazing meal and lived up to the hype foe the entrees. Nick was the server and very professional and just on top of it. Only complaint was desert. If you have that great of a meal you have got or conclude with a dinner that has the same high standards. The key lime and the deconstructed apple tart did not meet that expectation though.
