I give 3 stars this time(we were there few times prior) because we did not like the way Hostess treated us when we "checked in". It was a Valentine weekend and she was NOT pleasant, kept talking on the phone and had no happy personality at all. :(
My husband and I went to Iron Gate on a belated Valentine's Day celebration and had a great evening. We really enjoyed the food and the service was fantastic, but were surprised by the pricing of the menu items - we are the type to do our research before making reservations for restaurants, and it seemed that prices had gone up at least 20% from the prices we saw online. Otherwise, a great experience overall!
Delayed valentine day dinner with my husband. The food was great, as we expected. But the service was much less than we experienced in the past. We had to ask for menus to be provided, asked 3 times for a water refill before we got it, and our glasses were filled with wine only once, we took care of the rest. The nice sorbet palate cleansers after the salad course were forgotten by our waiter. We love this restaurant and have come to expect a certain level of service, but it seemed that the standards have been lowered since our last visit. For a meal that cost over $200, the service was not adequate.
It was a lovely experience and great value for a romantic dinner. The server explained us the specials and his service was high rated.
Outstanding food and service. This is our go to spot for fine dining and special occasions. Expensive but worth every penny.
The Iron Gate always delivers. The food is fantastic, the service is excellent.
Valentine’s Day lunch with my wife. Food was delicious, as always, and our favorite waiter Guiseppe was exceptional.
We love the Iron Gate for special occasion dinners when you want a truly fine dining experience and are willing to pay for it.
Another excellent special occasion meal at the Iron Gate. Try the spinach flambe salad and the strawberry flambe dessert-outstanding.
Old-school dining with a classic menu. The food was delicious and each course can be paired with a specific wine. The wait staff was very experienced and knowledgable about the menu. It was somewhat noisier than usual due to Valentine's Day celebrations. A delightful evening out!
Always a great experience in food and service! The most recent was a Birthday Dinner for my significant other with a couple who own an upscale restaurant in San Francisco who multiple times would not let us pay for our meal. We wanted to take them to a special place to reciprocate and they loved the Iron Gate!
