This place is awesome. And the service is absolutely amazing. The manager chose to give us a free appetizer for no reason whatsoever. The wine recommendation was EXCELLENT.

The ambiance is fantastic, I would dim the lights just a little bit. Food was great!

Highly recommend this place. Will be coming here and brining and people.

Cheers.

This is not a review. I just wanted to mention that one of us ordered soup and one of us ordered salad before our entrees. Salad came about 5 minutes after the soup and since he waited for my salad, his soup had cooled off. Everything else was great.

The food was excellent, perfectly prepared using fresh ingredients. The menu was a great wide selection of delicious food offerings from fish, chicken, meats. Really a great meal at a fair price. The restaurant decor is nice, relaxing, modern. Compliments to the chef and staff. Our server was friendly and helpful. The only negative is the location is a minor turn off, the view is a bit odd and the parking around the restaurant is a little challenging. These are very minor, as the food selection and preparation are outstanding, cocktails and wine list are great and the price is reasonable. It's a winner, I'm definitely going back. It would be perfect if located in a different spot with a view of the ocean or local mountains.

Moderate level noise is GREAT for me. It is a difficult trait to measure, due to different definitions of noise level, and what it means to me/them. I don't like a place that is "stuffy" and there is NO noise. Nor a place like a bar at midnight with the band playing . SO great job, we'll be back.

I was very happy with our food, but $25.00 dollars for kids chicken strips. Please, I thought that was way overpriced.

We needed a quiet place to dine and talk with friends. We went kind of early (6 p.m. on a Thursday night) and sat on the patio. It was ideal. Everyone's food was good. Our guests shared the giant meatball; one of them liked it and the other thought it was just O.K. I had the salmon and it was good, not great. My husband had a salad and the macaroni and cheese and he was pleased. All in all, it was a good evening.

We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at Ironwood. We sat on the patio and found it to be charming and cozy! We were comfortable and could hear each other talk. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful when we asked about wine recommendations. My husband and I both had rib eye and it was the best steak we ever had! We had mashed potatoes with blue cheese, and a variety of vegetables all excellent and cooked perfectly! The lemon lavender creme brûlée was delish!! Plenty of food too! We both had leftovers. We will be going back for our 34th next year (but plan to go back before then as well!)😊

Still my favorite restaurant in our area.....but still the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars is just because they don’t ever change the menu. Everything at this restaurant is excellent, atmosphere, food, drinks and service.....but for a restaurant of this caliber, there should be periodic updates to the menu....add a new dish every now and then to give repeat customers something new to try.

First visit, 5 of us for dinner. Every dish was a large portion, creatively prepared, and delicious. The waiter was attentive and engaged in our experience. Particularly like places that allow guests to bring bottles of wine for a reasonable corkage fee.
Will definatly go back...

This is a small bistro style restaurant. The menu is not very extensive - there were 2 specials. I got one, the duck, but it was far more gamey then duck I’ve eaten other place. My husband got the sea bass, which was average at best. They did have a very nice assortment of veggies on the plate, which was really the only part I enjoyed. I have to say, I would not likely go here again. Not that is was bad, just average. The veggies were fresh and tasty, but the meats just were not the quality we look for in a restaurant. Sorry Ironwood.
