I found Iron online for “best restaurants in Pensacola”. Was visiting my mom and wanted to take her out for a fabulous meal and an early birthday treat to myself. The reviews and write ups were good. The experience lived up to the reviews. And my steak was cooked perfectly! Thank you. I will recommend.

We had a wonder meal! Everything was amazing! The steaks melted in our mouths! The cocktails and appetizers were delicious. We had the fries, escargot and gnocchi, Caesar and peach salads. We celebrated a birthday and the GM Michael made my son feel ready special with a personalized menu.

This was my second trip to Iron. I reserved a seat a the bar. Told them it was my anniversary, and what a great experience with the number of peopl who offered Happy Anniversary to my wife and I. Probably the best part of the night was the menu saying Happy Anniversary. That was awesome. The down side is the prices for the Pensacola area. Filet was around 70$ a bit pricey. Shrimp and Grit in the 30 $ range. Come on. The food was tasty the drink were overpriced but good. To some it up 3.5 stars in my mind. Will I go back? Yes but, at those prices only for special occasions. Thanks,

Never disappointed with Iron. Amazing, friendly top-notch service from our favorite waiter Nick. Always treats us special. And the food.... we've never had a bad meal here and we go quite often. Chef Alex is one of the best around! Pensacola is lucky to have Restaurant Iron!!

Absolutely just a great evening. Nick, our server, was very attentive and knowledgeable. Since we sat at the Chef's Counter, some of the cooks came over to talk about particular menu items in depth. Just an overall great experience that i would highly recommend to locals and out-of-towners.

Loved the energy but I wish there was more quality control with the food- ie the truffle fries- amazing flavor but I don’t like when half the plate is a bunch tiny, over fried stubs of potato. I wish there was more non beef/pork options for the main course, but that aside my guest really enjoyed the wagyu. The staff were chill and knowledgeable, also responsive to small queues and had good pacing.

Poor service aside from the reservation. No drink refills, the food was wrong but we could not find a server to tell. Dishes never cleared even as I waited to speak to the manager. Came to find out on a busy saturday night there was no management present at all. Probably explains the crap service.

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.
