    Second time going to Iguana and realized home much we really like the food, service and atmosphere. We sat in the bar area and found it not to be loud at all at 6:30 on a Friday night. Mackenzie (not sure I spelt that right) was on point and made our dinner experience awesome. As a heads up, if you get the guacamole made at your table, have some cash for a tip.

    For our usual NYE dinner we go for Chinese. This year we changed it up with a visit to Iguana On Park. Tonight we ordered varying margaritas. Two on the rocks and one frozen. They definitely did not skimp on the tequila. When you dine here you have to get the Guacamole made table side. Its great to watch, but even more when you dig into the fresh avocado and all the veggies mix in. Next up, we ordered various tacos and the Peruvian Chicken. Everything was fantastic as usual. Highly recommended…

    I dined here with 5 friends for my birthday. I was looking for a cool, fun spot. It was a great pick. I made a reservation for 6 and received a booth that comfortably seats 4. I returned to the hostess stand and they were reluctant to reseat us. I was persistent as I had made a reservation for 6. They wanted to put us outside. It was cold, so I said no. Finally, someone decided to help out. The amount of persuading it took was disappointing. Customer service, people. Other than that, we had a great night. I would return. The menu is not extensive, but the food was good. On site parking, though small, is a plus.

    The food was delicious and generous. The guacamole made at the table was fresh and tasted fantastic. Our table had a wide variety of foods, the skirt steak was cooked perfectly and enough for 2 meals, the tacos we had were the kids chicken, pulled pork, blackened shrimp and beef. We all said our meals were great. Our waitress, Deja was excellent, friendly and attentive. We will be coming back.

    We had a reservation and it still took 30 min to get seated at brunch, they weren’t busy just short staffed. 2 of us had tacos, that was a mistake, it’s just not authentic and they tried to hard to make something that is good when simple be elegant, they failed. 1 person got a quesadilla with chicken (appetizer menu) it was ok, something you could feed your picky kid, chicken and cheese. Queso fundido was good, please note it is small and not like regular queso, it is baked and gets hard rather quick, could have used more chorizo. I should give them a 5 for price as all of ours was comped but after eating the food it is not worth the price at all. I would suggest finding somewhere else to eat.

    My friends and I decided to have a girls' night out. We had a great time at Iguana on Park. The food was delish, and the atmosphere and vibe were just what we were going for. We reserve the outside pit. Our waiter was awesome and attentive. This is my go-to restaurant for good food, great drinks, and a nice grown-up vibe!

    We had a great server, and I feel bad that I didn't get his name because I appreciate his hard work. Same can be said for the food runners and the other staff. I could leave a longer food review but will summarize it with this instead: If you charge $7 per taco that f'er better come on a homemade tortilla and not whatever pre-made crap they are serving, and the ingredients on said tortilla better be AMAZING, neither felt true. Maybe that was on us for buying tacos and not a Brazilian Churrasco dish? Or better yet, if you can't handle the basics of a dish, don't serve it, simply put. Summary, over priced and WAY overrated.

    Table side guacamole is absolutely delicious!! Veggie taco is so tasty. My husband loves the fresh catch, salmon, and the quinoa hash is to die for. Some of the best salmon! Ryan, our bar tender, is absolutely incredible. We have returned several times just because of him. We loved sitting at the bar. He made incredible drinks and we loved learning a lot of different types of tequilas! Thank you, Ryan. We will be back!!!
