    Like most restaurants nowadays, it was factory-like, rushed and not a relaxing environment. It was all about efficiency and they did their best to get us out the door as quickly as possible. Nothing surprising, just a typical experience of restaurants on this app.

    Well we found both our entrees, two totally different dishes had the exact same vegetables prepared the exact same way on two totally different dish. That was a big let down because we shared each. Uncreative at best. Pesto sause on parpadelle was non-existent and weak. Unfortunately dout think with the cost we go back...

    We hadn't been to Ironwood in some time, but we had enjoyed our previous meals there. I decided on Ironwood for my birthday dinner last night. Unfortunately, there were many mistakes made by the kitchen in all three dishes that we ordered: the duck wings came lukewarm with one of the four wings looking like it had been partially eaten; my chicken schnitzel was delivered to the table without any spaetzle at all on the plate; and my wife had asked for vegetables instead of potatoes with her sea bass, and yet there were still potatoes on her plate with very few vegetables. These were pretty basic errors made by the kitchen and there's really no excuse that these should happen in a high-end restaurant like Ironwood. Three out of three is not a good record! The servers did get all three issues corrected, and comped our dessert, but it delayed our meal and made this birthday dinner far less enjoyable.

    Always a great meal, always great service. The duck wings are delicious, the Mac and cheese with fried chicken skin is awesome. The chicken schnitzel is plenty for dinner and lunch the next day. And if you have room try the oatmeal raisin cookie crumble with apple strudel ice cream. A great place to dine.

    We have been here before and the last time we went the food was delicious. This time I felt like the menu was limited in what was being offered and really lacked flavor . Honestly I was very disappointed especially for the price. The service was great though. The way the menu stands now I would not recommend going and in the future I will be scanning the menu before I decide to return.

    I brought my fiancé here for her birthday. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. She got the ribeye steak, and I got the wagyu burger. Both were very delicious and the cook on the steak was perfect. I would also recommend the Mac and cheese with bacon! Delicious!

    Although we initially weren't satisfied with the quality of our food, Coty, one of the managers, reached out to us and invited us back another day. She was incredibly welcoming, and this time, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We'd like to extend our gratitude to our waitress for providing excellent service. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.

    AMBIANCE: Been here several times and the full booths are only comfortable for 2 people. If sitting deep inside the booth you are crammed against the wall and the elbow of the guest outside. Not great when my husband is 6’4”. Requested a half booth/half chairs as Im disabled and need to bring pillows. They stuck our party of 4 in the worst spot. It transitions from the front to back of the restaurant and jammed up against a divider so its a table and 1/4. My husband was on the outside was bumped constantly, so we slid one over. Note the chais are very small and sit shallow front to back. The decor and ambiance are lovely but seating can be uncomfortable. WINE AND COCKTAILS: Some of our party opted for wine by the glass which was a very small selection. I asked about 2 house vodka cocktails because they are usually too sweet at most places. Server recommended a totally different cocktail which had ingredients I dont like so went with his next recommendation. It was full of lime pulp and undrinkable. They were unable to make a type of martini I like so went basic. Everyone had almost finished with drinks when mine arrived. FOOD MENU: They expanded the menu. Friends had Schnitzel and Giant Meatball. My husband and I chose Osobuco special. Delicious with meat was falling off the bone and lovely El Dente vegetables. Needed more polenta than a tablespoon. SERVICE: Waiter was ok but a zombie. Like lwe were putting him out, asking about drinks and specials. Come on…specials usually cost more. Server never came back to check on us. More drinks? Hows the food? Etc. DESSERT: Only 3 choices so we chose the “Brownie with Ice Cream”. Server didn’t describe the dessert which was Nutella ice cream. Brownie was very good not too sweet but should have been served with Vanilla Bean or Mint as the Nutella was too rich.
