We love ironwood. The food is amazing the service is always good and it is such a great value for what you get. The butter lettuce salad, hamburger and rib eye are just a few of our families favorites. The fries alone are a reason to visit again.

The lamb and flatiron steak are both exceptional, as are the other entrees we've had here before.

This is a neighborhood gem!! From the moment we arrived until departure everything was perfect. Martini and craft cocktail was bar none! Appetizers were incredible! Sea Bass and Scallops were perfection. Even with COVID lurking around the experience made us feel removed from these scary times.

Once again, Ironwood impressed us with spot on service, and food. I was very impressed with their handling of the new state guidelines for table spacing and cleanliness. Our party of four had Salmon, Flat Iron steak , and chicken. All food was ample and delicious. The manager, Patrick , and of the staff , did an exceptional job.

We had dinner at Ironwood for the first time on Saturday evening. The hostess was very nice and seated us in a corner booth on the patio. The patio was busy and everyone seemed to be having a good time. The menu is pretty limited and a number of items sounded pretty exotic and not the mainstream type of food we prefer. Many of the appetizers did not sound good but we wanted to try something new. We started with a tomato and watermelon appetizer and it was very good. We ordered cocktails and one = tasted off - probably used flat tonic water - so the flavor was not good. The raspberry lemon drop martini looked nice but was so tart we could not drink it. They took care of the drnks for us when they saw that we did not touch them. We ordered some cab wine by the glass and it was good. The wine list was pretty limited and mostly everyday wines, not a lot to choose from. And they were out of Far Niente Chardonnay, the one bottle that looked good to us. The jandori chicken that looked so good on the website was somewhat thin and did not have much flavor. and it was served atop a mound of veggies that made it look unattractive. Just too many veggies for a single serving. We had the salmon which was better but very very salty. It was also served atop another mountain of veggies, which again distracted from the meal. The service was good. But I had to ask for silverware for both of us when our entrees were served . The creme brûlée was very dense and not the creamy, flavorful dessert we've had elsewhere. Last, the bench back on the booth we were seated in was very uncomfortable. It's too upright which makes it impossible to lean back and relax. We had high hopes for Ironwood but don't plan to return based on the limited selection of foods and wine.

It was chilly in the dining room as both front doors were open. The waiters were very good. The actual meal I gave a 4. The Sea Bass and the Halibut were excellent but the Rib-Eye was tough and fatty. The chicken schnitzel was a bit overcooked and somewhat dry. Mixed drinks were innovative and tasteful. I would go back but more than likely would not choose the steak.

Sea Bass was cooked perfectly, buttery, flaky, and melted in your mouth. My husband and son had the Midori Chicken Schnitzel which is why we came here for my husband’s birthday. He gets it all the time and loves it! Great place to go for special occasions.

Very attentive service. Johnny was an excellent server! Excellent meal. We had the salmon & halibut special. Delicious & healthy portions.
We were celebrating Fathers Day late & our server, Johnny gave my husband a desert at the end of our meal. Very nice touch! I was impressed by it all! We will be back .

Excellent food; great job keeping customers at bay with social distancing measures. The service was great; with a waiter always keeping an eye out for us to make sure we were missing absolutely nothing. The wine list was also great! We were lucky enough to be seating in the patio so the noise level was great; I'm not sure about the inside. Keep up the great work and totally recommend to anyone looking for fresh ingredients, excellent food and wine as well as the service to go with it!

The food and service is consistently excellent at Ironwood. We were thrilled to go out for a nice meal when restaurants started opening again and Ironwood did not disappoint. Servers wearing masks and gloves and spacing of tables made us very comfortable.
The only reason I didn't give "outstanding" for service is because the bus person asked us if we were finished when we still had a lot of food on our plates and still drinking our wine and beer (we may have put our forks down for a moment...but....) They know what they're doing in the kitchen! I would like to see more variety/rotating dishes, though- a shrimp/seafood dish would be welcome as well as a NY strip steak for a change.

- We asked for butter four times- nothing
- water service was the best
- grits and shrimp were ridiculous. Grits were hidden in medley of vegetables. Same medley as sea bass with faro. The fish was good but the sides seemed chef didn’t know what he was doing. We have been there several times and were very surprised
- we asked for desert and didn’t get served the crime brûlée he just gave us the bill
We have loved coming here for date nights and now we are reconsidering never coming back

Excellent experience for our first OC covid guidelines dining. All the staff wore masks and the patio tables were far enough part we felt very comfortable. Pork chop special was delicious. Chicken schnitzel was very good nd the cocktails were the best we have had in Orange County.

We always enjoyed this restaurant in the past and it was nice to have it open again. The work they put into protecting the staff and customers helped to make the evening very enjoyable. The food was as usual, very good. We had the Giant Meatball and a special, a double bone-in pork chop that was also excellent. The service was also very well done. Thank you for a very nice social distanced evening.

Excellant job of working within the constraints of covid 19. My giant meatball was superb and the "hot wing style" cauliflower was to die for. My wife said her salmon was top notch as well. And then the lemon vanilla creme brulee...
