As always, innovative food, prepared well and beautifully presented;great drinks and wine. Our server,Nick, was outstanding. Enjoyed conversations with Sommelier Hillary and Chef Alex.
The restaurant wasn’t very busy tonight and our food and drinks took forever to get. I love this place but I was a little disappointed tonight for a $300 meal for two people. For that price you should be getting the best service and the best food ASAP.
My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner, our waiter was amazing, the restaurant is beautiful and the food was indulgent and everything was cooked to perfection! They have a beautiful wine and spirits list and the specialty cocktails were perfect. We will be returning!!
The food was creative and outstanding. Our server was very attentive and was well versed in the dishes we inquired about. I also appreciate that the bar was able to make a delicious mocktail for me to go with my dinner. We look forward to returning soon.
We love sitting at the counter and watching the chef and his staff prepare food. Iron is always at the top of our list for an awesome dinner date. Every time we go there and try something different we are so pleased. Excellent restaurant!
Food was fantastic, as always. Old fashioned drinks were amazing. Server was attentive but not over bearing, and she was very friendly. We will definitely be back. One of my favorite restaurants in the area.
Great food, nice modern atmosphere. Pricey but you get what you pay for. A nice, tasty chef prepared meal.
Food is excellent, inspiring and flavorful. Service is attentive and we never had empty glasses or dishes sitting at the table. Love the ever changing menu, based on freshest ingredients.
Alex is an inspired chef.
Very interesting menu for the Florida Panhandle. Enjoyed the downtown setting away from the beaches. Food was quite good and service was exceptional.
Love the staff and beautifully prepared dishes are outstanding! ❤️
Awesome dining experience. Cocktails were incredible. Great atmosphere and vibes.
We went out of our way to come back here while on vacation after eating an amazing meal here last year.
This was inedible. So much salt that both of our main dishes had to be pushed aside. The salads had so much sauce/dressing and with such powerful flavors that they were unpleasant, soupy experiences.
You expect the best, and they never disappoint. From the bar through to dessert, every detail is executed with care and precision. From front of house to the staff in the kitchen, well done and thank you.
Always a treat to visit Restaurant Iron. The food is fantastic and service is impeccable. Such a great experience!
Bday for daughter
Good was great like always. Nick our servers is the best !! 🥃🥃
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Being in the F&B industry my whole career and have eaten at some of the top restaurants in the US. This is Pensacola’s best for Fine Dining, quality and great presentations and seasonal menus , and service.
Hands down our favorite restaurant in Pensacola. The food is beyond amazing, the cocktails are refreshing, the wine selection is perfect, the atmosphere is so comfortable, Restaurant IRON staff/family are incredibly kind and friendly and to finish it off the desserts are to die for. Restaurant IRON is just the best…..we love everything about this place…..just the best!
Excellent experience, great service, awesome food and enjoyable evening.
This was a cool experience overall, however, try to book an inside spot. Outside was hot and bugs kept messing with us during our meal. The dessert's were magnificent!
Iron is our favorite place to celebrate special occasions! We love the atmosphere, drinks, food and service. Nick is a great server!
Limited menu. Excellent food. Ready for some new inspirations from chef. Perhaps a small muse prior or a special chocolate truffle for a complimentary sweet while signing the tab. It’s a quality and well run kitchen. Pensacola is fortunate to have an abundance of fine restaurants.
Delicious!! Great service!! Oyster appetizer was wonderful!
Seeing a friend and visiting Pensacola for the first time
Amazing food and service! Highly recommend! Don’t forget to try the jalapeño cornbread
Amazing food, cool spot, and wonderful server! Can’t recommend enough!
If I am spending that much fir dinner I expect better service, also thought menu was limited.
Everything was delicious. We will return.
Fabulous meal. Never disappoints
We had the best anniversary dinner! Personalized the menu and made it so special!! Started with an amazing strawberry salad and Caesar salad, followed by the gulf catch, which was the perfect combination of southern beans and greens with fish. The shrimp and grits were outstanding, I'm not a big grits fan, but this combination definitely made me love them! We finished out with a butter cake and a Nutella pie which was creamy and finished the meal perfectly! Well done Chef! Best Meal you can get in Pensacola for sure!!
Wonderful cocktails and food! The escargot and gnocchi was excellent, as always, and we tried the 24oz ribeye which was very good also!
The food was good but not as good as we had on the past for the money you pay. A bit disappointed. The service was great.
Excellent as always
The restaurant is very overpriced! Many of the items listed on the Open Table menu were not listed on the actual restaurant menu. The $62 filet mignon came with a side of beets and no other option was available. I got the shrimp and grits and there was way too much going on in the dish. I also got a Caesar salad and there were about 20 cloves of garlic piled on the side of it - way too much! The food was just ok.
Great food, great cocktails, great service! One of the best places in Pensacola. 10/10 would recommend
Food was amazing! Was skeptical about sitting at the counter but we ended up enjoying it!
Absolutely amazing. The food was incredible, the staff attentive and engaging, knowledgeable. There seemed a real sense of ownership among all the staff. Simply phenomenal. My new favorite!
Perfect as always. They exceed our expectations every time.
