What a wonderful experience celebrating my daughter's birthday and upcoming wedding in 3 weeks. Food was delicious, abundant and a good deal. We all ordered from the summer special menu with no regrets. The birthday surprise dessert topped it off!! I will definitely return!!

Something has changed. As opposed to prior experiences the food was very bland and unremarkable. It makes me sad to say that because our last dinner at Ironwood was amazing. When you are paying the prices charged by Ironwood, the experience should be something you talk about the next day. All we talked about the next day was how disappointed we were for the price we paid.

Food and service we’re fine. We had requested a booth for our party of 4, however all booths were taken by parties of 2.

Booths are limited which is why we requested in advance.

We have eaten at Ironwood multiple times over the last 6 years and always find that the service and the food are excellent. However, this instance (which happened to be the 4th of July) was pretty uncharacteristic. Evidentially management had made the decision to run all food service thru the Ironwood kitchen (Ironwood, IBar and room service) which caused a log jam. We were fortunate in that it only took 1 1/2 hrs for our starter and entree. However our server said desert would take at least another 1/2 hour so we opted for the fireworks instead. A table of 5 nearby who were seated at the same time weren't so lucky and managed only to get maybe to starters before opting out totally.
We will be back and hopefully management will have enough negative feedback to re-evaluate their decision.

The dinning room is beautiful. Food was great. My only problem was with the server when I ordered a bottle of wine and he tried to suggest a wine that was double the price I was ordering. I may not be a wine expert but I know what I like. I would still return

We thoroughly enjoyed the 3-course Summer Special Menu! The French Onion soup was the best I have ever had! And the Delmonico steak was absolutely perfect in every way! A great evening overall!

My wife and I stayed at the resort to celebrate a special occasion, and WOW, did Ironwood make us feel special! Outstanding, exemplary service from Adrian our friendly and attentive waiter. Our hostess greeted us with a big smile and had us laughing before we even made it to our seat. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and everything was delicious and reasonably priced. We live 40 minutes away but would definitely make the trip to come eat here again...

From the hostess stand to the last plate served this was an amazing experience. The entire staff - hostess, waiter, food runner were all extremely friendly while professional. The food was beyond delicious. I had the coriander crusted tuna ordered rare. It was perfectly cooked. The wine list is extensive. The dessert menu is way to tempting. The list of after dinner drinks made my head spin. We will definitely be back.

Ironwood was the perfect place for my husband's birthday dinner!! It started with Jolin, the hostess, who is so kind and so friendly and made sure we sat at our normal booth that we love so much. Our waiter Adrian was wonderful. He attended to us and made us feel very special. We started with the jumbo shrimp cocktail and they were jumbo!! :) The chef even came to visit our table. What a nice touch!! Our dinner entrees included the New Zealand Dijon Pistachio Crusted rack of lamb and the seafood tower for two. Fresh bread brought to the table is also served. Everything was so fresh and made with the finest ingredients. The dessert we chose was the chocolate bomb and that did not disappoint!!!
The restaurant offers really a great atmosphere for any event. Finally, the executive chef, chef Jeff, has a first class crew that works for him and resort. He has such a well-run restaurant and everyone is so wanting to please............with so much great food to choose from and such great service, I wanted to go back the next day!!!! :)

First off, we dined here 2 nights in a row. We had wait person extraordinaire, Tony, for both nights. Lobster tails and filet were phenominal on night one; filet cooked to perfection; lobster tails were firm and so fresh. Last night we had the fall-off-the-bone short ribs....outstanding. Had a great bottle of zSilverado Cab both nights. Huge wine selection. The surprise chocolate bomb for dessert (thanks Tony) was a work of art to the eyes and palette!

Over our 4-day stay at PGA National, we dined at Ironwood Steak & Seafood twice. First, just Carol and I, had dinner on Friday night, which was very nice and romantic. Then on Sunday night we had a larger party of six people – and had a wonderful time. Our waiter, Nicolas, was extremely helpful and we all highly recommend him. Splendid food and service!

Our reservation was honored on time. Our dining experience was leisurely and attended by a nice server. Our food, generally, was good, but our birthday boy was served a grizzly porterhouse for which we were compensated. A nice touch and surprise was the sparkler dessert that was big enough for four to share and was gratis. I would recommend this venue for a special occasion.

The ambiance and service were impeccable. My husband ordered the fish special, for $45...the piece of fish measured about 2 1/2 inches...maximum, maybe less. I had the surf and turf...the filet was delicious, the lobster tail undercooked...almost translucent. A lot of money for mediocre food.

Had a reservation but no hostess at the desk to check us in. The food was good but the waitress was unusual in demeanor. The attitude wasnt that pleasant. Had to ask for bread and butter. Boxing the food was questionable. It was an ok experience.

Ironwood is the place to go for a special occasion. The food is creative, well prepared and the portions are ample. Every time we come to Ironwood, the manager welcomes us during the meals and asks if we are satisfied. The servers fill the water glasses without being prompted and are always checking back to make sure the service and the food is perfect.
