    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!

    Tried brunch and really enjoyed it. The fresh Guacamole and the Sangria were delicious. Also had the Pork Chicharron and the Torrijas/Spanish French Toast. Everything was so good. Will definitely be back!

    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.

    Great place, the tacos were wonderful, only complaint was the bowls didn’t have enough rice. Hosts were great with 6 people the booth was a bit tight and they were kind enough to move us to a different table. Awesome experience, would go again!

    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.

    I had the pleasure of dining at this new restaurant for the first time, and it was an outstanding experience from start to finish. Our server, Christian, went above and beyond to make our evening memorable. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely friendly. The food was amazing, full of flavor and beautifully presented. From the appetizers to drinks to the desserts, very pleased. What truly set this place apart was the manager's personal touch. He came to our table to ensure our experience was exceptional and even offered us a complimentary shot to celebrate our first visit. This gesture made us feel like valued guests. Without a doubt, we'll be returning to this restaurant.

    Margaritas were excellent and came quickly. Table side guacamole was excellent as was the guac-guy and our server. She recommended some tacos which were all very good. Ambiance was ok, nothing spectacular. Noise level was good and restaurant is kid friendly. First time there but will go again for sure.
