Iron Gate Ratings and Reviews
Great spot, excellent food. Old school, a true relic from the 60s, when fine dining meant French food with all the meat, butter and cream one could ever want. Think Mad Men. One of those places where you could actually dress for dinner and not be out of place, although you will see diners there in Bay Area casual as well. Great bar - yes martini glasses should be chilled! Probably the last restaurant in the Bay Area that still makes tableside entrees. All of the meat dishes are excellent; try the Caesar salad and the Grand Marnier souffle. Some may think it is a little pricey, but all in all, it is more than worth it. I'm glad a restaurant like this still manages to attract a following.
1st time dining there. Cocktails were fine.
Wait staff were slow, despite lack of patrons and unfriendly.
Food was unremarkable and in my case, over cooked.
I wanted to like this restaurant as it’s close to work and home, but I won’t be back and I can’t recommend.
The food is outstanding and the staff is tremendous. This is a jewell on the mid peninsula. Great cocktais and wine list that stands with any restaurant. Dessert, includes sofflels that are a 10 out of 10.
Cannot recommend the Iron Gate with more confidence in the entire experience.
Yes, it’s old school but that’s what’s so wonderful about Iron Gate. They make quality food you simply can’t find elsewhere. The Steak Diane is not only a show but is so tasty. The abalone is tender and delicious. And if you leave without trying the Bananas Foster, you’re missing out. Leave the bistros to everybody else and try Iron Gate!
The best Ceaser salad in the San Francisco Bay Area - veal parmigiana was about a C through and the Chicken with Dijon and mushrooms was an absolute A+ - as well as the Veal Scalopini was an A - the waiters pay close attention to you and are jovial -
Definitely going back soon ❤️
The entire experience is very good. It's a bit on the pricey side for certain items but overall holds strong value for both food and wine. Can recommend the meats and fish on the menu, but the pasta primavera was quite bland. I would recommend the table experiences such as the caesar salad and steak Diane which are prepared and served at your table and are both outstanding.
Love the Iron Gate-go there for my birthday the last 3 yrs. Was really looking forward to a big lobster, like last year (2016)! 8 or 9 oz! But it was mushy & only 6 or 7 once’s! Very disappointed! Did mentioned it to our waiter to no avail! And it was very expensive! Did have the soufflé & it was Delish! Will go again, but if any problems , I will be more assertive! 🎉😜
It was a special birthday for my husband. What a throw back to table-side food prep service, deliciously sauced food and even grand marnier soufflé! The Caesar Salad made at your table is out of this world. I will dream about this perfection. My sole almondine and my husband's salmon in dill sauce was so fresh and scrumptious. Top it off with a soufflé and you have the perfect birthday celebration. I am so happy that my birthday is next month because I know where we will be celebrating. Yumm!!!
Iron Gate is a classic Italian Restaurant. Everything about our dining experience was memorable. The waiters were attentive but respectful of our privacy. The Beef Wellington and rack of lamb were prepared perfectly. The 2 hour dining experience was most enjoyable.
The Iron Gate is a terrific and unique restaurant. The servers have been there many years and do a great and professional job. This restaurant is unique with all the table side preparations and flambé. And the food is delicious, fresh, and bacon spinach salad prepared with a flambé is wonderful. But so are the scallops and shrimp appetizers. We loved the petroleum sole, maybe the best I eve head. And the veal piccata is prepared table side with a flambé. But don’t miss out on the osuflets with blueberries or strawberries. That’s something special. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area, and that includes SF. the restaurant is a treasure, a little bit of a throw back to when restaurants did something special for their treasured guests.
Iron Gate is a real old school go to spot! I have been coming here for over 30 years (definitely a special occasion spot!) and it is so nice to relive the "continental" style of dining from the 70-80's. Steak Diane and Veal Oscar were a hit as well as the Iron Gate salad, and the souffles are to die for.
For anyone who wants to experience something special they definitely need to come to Iron Gate.
