    Ate 2 bites of the peruvian Chicken which was extremely chewy and had zero flavor. The chicken skin was rubbery, nothing spectacular and the rice and beans were plain. Also had a red sangria, very diluted. Service was good but the food was absolutely disgusting. My hubby had tacos and said they were just ok, again nothing spectacular to write about. 100 spent that was just wasted such a shame.

    My sister chose this restaurant for her special milestone birthday dinner on Saturday evening. It was my first time eating at this restaurant and we were greeted immediately with a smile. He sat us at the first booth with a window view and while it was a great location, it was not quite comfortable for five people so our waitress was nice enough to bring a chair for our 5th person in our party. Our waitress was great & the food was tasty. We had the Guacamole dip & chips, Steak tacos, the Cochinita Pibil, Brussels sprouts, the Peruvian Steak Bowl no egg, Baja Fish Taco, Achiote Chicken Taco, Chicken Pibil Bowl, Black Beans & Cilantro rice and a complimentary Birthday Churro for my sister. My only very small feedback is If you don’t like jalapeño peppers, ask them to leave them off the Steak tacos. I will definitely dine there again. .

    The food is phenomenal. They struggle a bit with service but management is super attentive and the food outweighs it all. The pork belly taco is heavenly! Make sure you order at least one. You won’t regret it!

    #1 best thing about this restaurant is the food! Everything we ordered was wonderful (table side guac; potato empanadas; steak taco; Brussels sprouts; churros)! The cocktail i ordered was a disappointment. The Paloma tasted like it had 0 tequila in it and about a drop of grapefruit juice. Our waiter was great - when we finally got one. A couple who came in A few minutes after us had chips and drinks before we even had a hello and menus. So - very tasty food- meh experience overall though.

    Server was great, recommended and awesome, spicy, prickly pear fauxrita and I had two, they were so good. Food was good overall and our server was kind enough to move us inside because it was a little chilly on the patio. The food was good. Salsas were yummy and fresh, and I absolutely loved my steak taco. the only thing I didn’t love love was the breakfast taco. The pork belly was kind of dry, and it was drowned in shredded cheese, which normally isn’t a bad thing, but it just wasn’t for me. overall 9/10 would and plan to go again.

    Iguana on Park is a fine restaurant. We had a reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. All the personnel were very pleasant, especially our waiter Christian. We had the ceviche for an appetizer and it was excellent. We also opted for the pulled pork and it was wonderful. We were headed to the symphony after dinner, so were on a tight schedule. We let our waiter know that upfront and he made sure we got our food promptly so that we could eat at leisure. Really a good experience. The only criticism is the noise level made it difficult to carry on a conversation, but I am sure that we will return in the future.

    Food and service were awesome. However, the drink situation was a little odd. 1130 on a Sunday for brunch and they were out of bloody mary/maria mix. Definitely would have ordered more than one drink if they were not out of their mix shortly after opening the restaurant.

    Today was my first experience and we will not be returning! The service was horrendous! There were 2 girls in the front that told us it’s going to be a long wait at least 40 minutes but if you looked around there was 75% of the tables opened. 1 couple was waiting. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated. Our waited messed up on our order 2 times. He kept coming over to apologize. I was thinking okay maybe they are short staff but after watching there were so many employees there. Food was good, but service not so good. Not worth it!

    We had such a nice dinner last night and Iguana on Park. Despite arriving past our reservation, the team immediately got us in after cleaning a table. The food was delicious, particularly the rotisserie chicken with aji sauces and the steak bowl. The steak frites price was well more than expected at $40 while everything else covers around $20 to $25 for full entree but the dish was good. We enjoy Iguana on Park and will be back again soon.

    The service was mediocre, very low energy. The food had very little flavor. The queso dip had a gritty texture like it was overcooked and it had no flavor. The scallop taco was good but the scallop was mushy. There has been a lot of hype about this place on social media but I didn’t see any reason for that. I won’t go back unless it’s for something social and I don’t get to pick.

    Our initial experience was great. Our waitress was on top of everything. I ended up ordering the ceviche as my dinner (it’s on the appetizer menu). My husband steak rice bowl. My husband loved his meal. I was surprised at the size of my meal/appetizer. Granted it is an appetizer, but it was a tiny amount overall either way very few shrimp (served in a huge bowl with lots of liquid). Once our dinner was served, our waitress was no where to be seen for thirty minutes. By the time she came back, we had our credit card out & paid without seeing the bill. We were so ready to go.

    We were a party of 5 and decided since the temperature was chilly, I selected to sit inside. Our server was very attentive and made our NYE celebration a great experience. When you go to a Tex Mex restaurant, you order margaritas. We had a variety of frozen and on-the-rocks. We also ordered the table-side made guacamole. For our entrees we ordered the Peruvian Chicken, Salmon Special, Quesadilla with a side of Plantains, Chimichurri Steak Special, and 3 Tacos (Dirty South, Farm-to-table, and Flying Fish). Everyone commented how much they enjoyed their entrees. Flying Iguana is a go to restaurant for higher end Tex Mex.

    We were hoping for a fun evening for my husband's bday. Server was not pleasant and didn't know the menu. Asked for no salt on margaritas, but got salt. The food was mediocre at best. The queso Blanco had a weird consistency, like to much flour??? Tacos were bland and steak bowl was very salty. The hostess saw our note on OT about his birthday, but server never mentioned it and offered no dessert. Very disappointing experience.
