Very good food. Great service. The acoustics in the place allows you to hear any conversation at tables 20 feet away.

It was very loud inside. Also no servers showed up for long time to take any drinks order. Appetizers were served before drinks. No cutlery was provided until asked for. Food was OK.

We were sat down and it took over 20 minutes and we finally had to wave down a server. Once we did he was attentive. But that was ridiculous l. My salad had grit in it. So that was a bummer. The chicken was delicious.

Love the duck starter. Ordered the pork special which was good but my pork was somewhat overbooked! My husband’s was fine though.

The food at Ironwood is amazing. The service hasn't been the best last couple of times I've gone there. I'm assuming it's due to COVID

A very nice experience. The food was fantastic. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The only downside was the proximity to street noise on the patio. But this was only a minor annoyance

Ordered the oysters, duck wings and share the bone-in ribeye and everything was delicious.

In addition to the food being great, the cocktails were also delicious.

Limited, but very interesting menu. Lamb shank is my to-die-for dish. Outstanding Butter Lettuce and Goat Cheese Salad. Noise level high, we had a very loud speaking party at thenext table.

The food was very good, and service was courteous and efficient. I was surprised at the portions; they’re larger than you think, and you get a good value for your money, at least with the dishes we ordered. We’ll definitely eat here again.

Had fantastic food and service. Glad they had outdoor seating. Felt more comfortable there as the indoor was packed and everyone without masks. Also doors and windows closed. So decided on outdoors. Not as much atmosphere but felt safe and food made up as it was great!!!

Food and ambiance were amazing. You can tell that the chef puts a lot of thought and work into everything he makes. I had the lamb and my husband had the chef special which was an Asian sea bass. We shared the Brussels sprouts and my husband also had the potato soup. All were cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is that our waiter started off great but once we asked for desert menus, he never came back. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and mentioned so on our reservation. Nobody acknowledged that. We were planning on ordering desert but left and had desert elsewhere. I highly recommend this place though.

It was nice. But I was disappointed that the birthday was never acknowledged. Also we asked for a box and it didn’t come for a long time. We had to ask again. The person sat there with their plate in front of them for a while.

Fantastic food. We enjoyed everything we ordered. I will say to make a note to sit inside instead of sitting in the tent, slightly chilly even with heaters.

Great NYE spot to taste through the appetizers from the oysters and insalata to the duck wings and pork belly all the while sipping bubbly and enjoying a bottle of wine in the outdoor tent which has candles lit, heating lamps, and helpful service.

A wonderful atmosphere. Cozy yet not cramped. Alex our server was so helpful. We followed his suggestions on everything: Wine, starters, entree & dessert.

Best lamb shanks I’ve ever had. My two companions were equally impressed & satisfied.

We went on a Thursday night. It was not crowded.

We were at Ironwood with friends from out of town. The pumpkin ravioli apetizer was AMAZING witht eh goat cheese making it perfect. 2 of us has the chicken schnitzel and 2 had the giant meatballs. Both were great and the meatballs are not boring. They have 4 meats and great taste.
Overall for the money it was a great evening out.

Good food but patio doors continually opening let freezing cold air in all through dinner. Couldn’t feel comfortable because of the continual cold drafts. They need a divider of some kind between the inside and outside!

Pros: duck wing s and Mac and cheese.
Cons: fish was over cooked. Steak was dry and flavorless.

Pay for Ruth Chris steak price but you get a sizzler steak instead.

Service was mediocre. Weak drinks. Didn’t refill our waters.
