In Pensacola from New Orleans.
Exemplary as usual!
Great food, service and delightful staff. Will recommend and return in the future.
OpenTable decided that $300 a meal is not worth giving me and my points when I use their so-called service. Sad days when I’ve been using them for over six years!!!!
Every single thing was DELICIOUS! The jalapeño cornbread, the oysters & bacon, the bbq shrimp grits… YUM!
Best meal. Loved my birthday!! This is the 4th year in a row plus we go during the year. Best restaurant in Pensacola
Iron has a fairly limited menu, not from lack of imagination, but I think from a desire to specialize and do a few things exceptionally well. It works. Four of the entrees on the menu are steak. It's a steak place, after all. There was something for everyone else though; a vegetarian tofu bowl, fish and "rice grits" an airline chicken offering and an off-the-menu pork dish. Salads were huge, and appetizers were very creative. We were there on "wine night" when a large selection of wines were on sale, and it was happy hour when drinks were discounted. Their bar staff is very talented and the drink offerings are varied and imaginative (try the "Gen and Tonic"). Entries run from the low $30's to near $100 for the Wagyu offering, so it might not be an every week place, but we go there for special occasions, and it is always special. Service was perfect.
Great food and fantastic service!!
Always an amazing experience.
Fantastic experience at Iron for our wedding anniversary! We’ve heard raving reviews but never made it here until today and we know now what we’ve been missing. Service was prompt as they had a quiet table for two set aside for us which allowed for conversation away from the other patrons. Fresh and inventive menu including the cocktails. We went with the Smoked Old Fashioned and cheese plate to start, and for dinner Filet and (for something I’d never make for myself at home) the Tofu Buddha Bowl. We topped this off with the Nutella Ice Box pie that was to-die-for. Our entire evening was perfect including the attentive service of Danielle. This place is certainly not overrated…worthy of all the praise we’ve heard.
The food was almost too delicious to describe… We are definite foodies and have traveled all over the world tasting and trying food of many varieties… This had to be one of the top five meals we’ve ever experienced! The grouper with the lima beans was outrageous… The truffle fries were through the roof… And the bartenders were some of the best I’ve seen making craft cocktails that were off the charts… I would highly recommend the old-fashioned with the Benton‘s bacon! I would also make reservations early as they fill up quickly… And often don’t have anything Available for days! Fantastic experience all the way around.
In my view, there is no better fine dining experience to be had in Pensacola.
The food is incomparable to any other restaurant. Everything my family ordered, from the cocktails to the starters and the entrees was perfectly seasoned, prepared and served. If you haven been wanting to go, have no hesitation. it is superb!
Restaurant Iron is always our first choice for special occasions. The food, staff, and atmosphere are second to none. Pensacola is lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber.
The food is fabulous. Wonderful atmosphere where you can actually have a conversation with people at your table without yelling. Our waitress Danielle P was probably one of the best waitresses we’ve ever encountered. Wonderful experience will go back for sure!
Last minute anniversary dinner was great!
Very little to fault. A great restaurant that delivers consistently great food and cocktails. Will always make time to eat there when in town.
Food is very good , but cocktails are a little pricey
Simply the BEST
The food was excellent and our server Danielle was so cool and helpful!
Went with my wife to celebrate a milestone after an extremely long day. We had the escargot gnocchi (seriously a must), truffle fries (babe loves fries), Jalapeno Cornbred with sorghum butter, and the Hitatchi Wagyu (the fancy MP steak). For dessert we had the nutella icebox pie and banana pudding (okay, but it's constructed like a pastry) & coffee. We don't drink alcohol. so I can't speak to that, but the drinks looked great. Everything was absolutely delicious, the charming manager, Michael, came by and checked in on us. Our server, John and his colleagues took very good care of us: I assume tips are pooled, so it seemed like the teamwork was strong and competition was zero among the staff. Also, for great food it was an unpretentious atmosphere. We just moved here from LA (I'm from here og) in December, have been looking forward to dining with Iron for months, and were absolutely pleased. I worked in and managed Michelin level restaurants in LA, so I feel like I can speak to finding a great place from a number of perspectives! Every dish was beautiful a delicious, service was great, 10/10 will be back on the reg. It's nice Pensacola is changing and growing in food and culture.
We drove an hour to have a special birthday dinner for my husband. They did not disappoint!!!
BEST meal, service and experience we have had in a long time. Our server AJ was wonderful and the food was perfect!! No complaints. Thank you RESTAURANT IRON for making my husband's birthday wonderful.
Alex is beyond an amazing chef. We are foodies and travel all over to eat. Best steak I’ve ever had. As a matter fo fact, in our party of 5, everyone said it was the best meal they’d ever had.
Highly recommend for any occasion.
Excellent food in a fun energetic atmosphere
Delicious food, creative cocktails, extensive wine list, all paired with excellent service by Taylor!
Food and atmosphere plus service is a 10 out of 10. This is a must have. What every dining experience should feel like.
I recommend that you order the oysters. They were delicious.
Very nice. Great food.
Not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but I love it so much that it's my go-to for date night. the waitstaff is delightful, the escargot is the absolute BEST, and every entree I've ever ordered is my new favorite! BTW: if an entree has Parsnip Puree, order that; their parsnip puree will change your life!
Good food and great service. We went for our anniversary and had a great time.
Pretentious Caesar salad and street side dining is not roped off, so it’s always nice to enjoy a 70$ steak while someone is smoking cigarettes riding a skateboard 2 inches from your table. Not my cup of tea, the Oysters were inventive - did enjoy those.
Never disappoints!! Outstanding service and always delicious no matter what we order! We have never had a bad meal at Iron and service is the best. Ask for Nick!
Great food & service
Good food. Terribly over-priced.
This is our favorite restaurants in Pensacola they never seemed to disappoint with the level of service and the quality of the dishes they prepare. Cannot recommend them highly enough!
Food and service were both excellent. The atmosphere was what you would expect out of fine dining. Would definitely recommend!
We love this restaurant. Always ha
We came to Pensacola just to have dinner at Iron. Our server was great and the food was memorable. We are a bit picky and would’ve preferred no sauce with the Wagyu, but all was devoured. The fried oyster hors d’oeuvre was delicate and the pork belly—melt-in-your-mouth. I am not a vegan but the Almond Joy dessert was the bomb. Many thanks for a delightful evening.
Great restaurant amazing food , excellent service
Dinner was fabulous! It's always a treat. Thank you Iron.
Outstanding as always!
