Great service and the food was excellent! We shared several small plates starting with the Crispy Brussel Sprouts which are out of this world! Then a selection of cheeses paired with truffle honey and Marconi almonds. Finished up with mussels, soup and a salad. Can’t wait to go back!

Iron Bridge is one of my favorite restaurants. I may have stated it in a previous review. I just had to repeat it if so... The wine list is exceptional as they carry a wine for every palate. It rotates frequently so there is always a chance to have something new from different regions. We sat at the bar and the bartender was great as always. Had the grilled octopus which is on the main menu and perfectly executed. They also had a white fish on their rotating menu that was well prepared. Great establishment.

Food was excellent and the server, though very busy was attentive to our table. The grilled octopus and crispy Brussel sprouts were delicious. They gave us free champagne and chocolate cake for our anniversary. I’ve been here before and continue to recommend it. Good service and excellent food. The only downside is the space is limited. You could call it intimate, but reality is it’s a small building and the tables are close together. Still I would highly recommend for a special night out.

Service was REALLY off. Served men before women. Took forever to get server attention to order a second round of drinks. Dessert order took 20 minutes and we had to flag two servers down to get a status. Mahi mahi was good, not great. Pasta was excellent. Wine pours are LIGHT and PRICEY as a result. We expect better. They had to know it because they comp'd the desserts and gave us a $20 gift card for next time. Next time, I'd rather have great food, great service and a decent wine pour, instead of what was barely 4.5 oz.

The lunch was delicious, however we were not informed that flavored ice tea was not refill free. There was an additional charge and at one point it was topped off at a charge of $15 for 2 of us. We should have been told there is an additional beverage charge for a refill. No other restaurant that I have been to, charges for a refill. The waiter should have informed us.

Manager came and said our table was reserved at7:15 so we would not be able to stay. Rude and snobby and did it because we were a table of 3 women

Responded on April 9, 2019

This is Steve, one of the owners. I am sorry that your perception of the visit was that our manager was being inconsiderate of your desire to have a nice evening. As you can see, we run a small Establishment, which is popular and we have reservations booked based on what we perceive to be generous turn times. When you were told that we had a table behind you, we were trying to allow you enough time with the late arriving guest. 75% of our guests are women; it had no bearing on that.

Our waitress was excellent. She was very helpful, attentive and charming. It was our Anniversary and she brought us our 5 star creme brulee, free, because of the an e-mail we received from Iron Bridge. The Brussel sprouts were ourstanding as usual. We received a good discount on our bottle of wine and the whole meal was fabulous. Unfortunatly, Iron Bridge is a little too expensive to come as often as we would like .

This was our 2nd visit to Iron Bridge. While I enjoyed my meal, it wasn't quite what I expected. Probably me trying something different. My guest loved her meal. While I understand the low lighting for better ambiance, there probably should be more lighting at table level to better view the menu. I felt that the tables where we were seated were rather close so that the couple we were seated next to seemed loud in their conversations. We were seated in a different area in our previous visit. My dessert was excellent. The wine matched our entrees very nicely, as recommended by our server, whose service was excellent! I was pleasantly surprised at the quick turn around of our courses. Overall all we were pleased with our visit to Iron Bridge, and would continue to recommend you. Thanks,
Jeff

The server warned me about the "Chicken Pot Pie." I didn't heed his advice. It was like a half bowl of Campbell's Soup with a pastry on top of it. It should be taken off the menu post haste.
