The menu was simple and straightforward. Sides were sharable. Entrees were perfectly sized. Food was well-prepared and very flavorful. The restaurant atmosphere was great - loved the open flame cooking. Very good experience overall.

Flat iron steak was undercooked and pretty tough. Chicken was excellent. Brussel sprouts were really too saucy but tasty. Edamame was interesting. Great flavor but greasy if that makes sense considering they were grilled. Dessert was good - some type of cake which was mostly pudding in a glass with some cake at the bottom. It was sold as "cake". We liked it though. Potatoes (side) were great but way too many. Actually the portions of edamame, potatoes and B-sprouts were way too much for two people (not complaining, just sayin). It was over $220 for two including a couple cocktails, two glasses of wine and a coffee. Fun spot for sure. Great valet out front. Super friendly hostess. Not sure if we'll rush back but it was enjoyable.

The mashed potatoes and Brussel sprouts are fantastic. Big enough for two to share. We ordered a porterhouse which was good but not worth the price ($70). The other dish was scallops. Three of the came on the plate and were delicious. Overall neat place but I wouldn't visit often

Love this restaurant - it’s always fun to go to! It’s fantastic watching the open fire cooking. Everything is à la carte. If you order steak, the meal is pricey. Found my ribeye to be a little too lean and not as flavorful as it could have been. The seasoning was great but the meat itself was not marbled enough. My husband got the flat iron which was very good and had a little kick to it! The side dishes were great. Super fun delicious cocktails. Definitely recommend!

All and all it was a good time. Food could have been better. The temperature, and the overall cooked chicken breast was a turn off.

Party of 6 celebrating 2 birthdays. We ordered two pork chops one flat iron one trout one ribeye and one chicken dinner. My ribeye was ordered medium but came rare and needed to be sent back. The steak was tender but very underseasoned. The rest of the entrées were great. The waitress neglected to tell us that the salads and sides were meant to be shared so we had an abundance of food left over at our table.

Prices were high for what you got.
It was our anniversary and I was hoping we'd get at least a complimentary cake jar to share or something similar since we spent well over $100.00. I also did mention it was our anniversary when I made the reservation but I guess that didn't matter.
Also, not in a very good neighborhood. I was relieved to get out of there and back home.
Our waitress and everyone was attentive to our needs.
Due to the high price I would not recommend to a friend.

Food at Ash was unique,sophisticated and delicious. Not at all contrived. We ordered several items, including the marinated chicken, the scallops, the trout, a salad with dried cranberries, pecans and apples, as well as roasted cauliflower. All were wonderful. The only time we didn’t love was the dessert which was kind of baked apple with caramel sauce. Otherwise the dinner was perfect. Would go back.

One of the coolest vibes in the city. Iron Horse is still eclectic. The open flame fire cooking flavors were delicious. Only gripe is seems a bit overpriced with everything ala carte. 3 scallops, $30. No side.

Menu options were limited for brunch but the food was delicious. Service was good but felt they were rushing a bit to get our orders in before the kitchen closed. Appreciated that the staff called and recommended we come in prior to our reservation because otherwise the kitchen would be closed. Need to fix the reservation system on Open table. And it is true from other reviews that certain staff did not comply with wearing face masks. Overall nice brunch.

This was Easter Sunday during the Covid pandemic. We arrived to a virtually empty restaurant which had been set for proper social distancing. Thats all fine. We ordered cocktails. Two bloody marys (uninspired) and two makers mark cocktails with just the slightest hint of liquor. The food was bland. Not much else to say.

I made a reservation a week in advance. I spoke to a live person who took the reservation and the day before my reservation....someone called me to cancel because they decided they were going to close the restaurant for repairs or maintenance. I chose the place due to the fact that I could bring my daughter's puppy.

I get it, things happen. But not even a " an appetizer or a cocktail on us when you do make it in". From a management/marketing point of view, not how I would have handled it.

Everything was delicious! Avocado appetizer was good, but a bit heavy on the sour cream. Avocado half could have been a little bigger.
We ordered all of the vegetable sides and we split the flank steak. The cauliflower definitely could have been a little bit bigger. Not what I would expect for $10.
Brussel sprouts were good although a bit heavy on the sauce.
Broccolini with the Miso sauce was very tasty. I wasn't a fan of the cauliflower sauce so actually dipped the cauliflower in the Miso sauce which made it incredible.
Thanks for a yummy dinner.

We loved the atmosphere! We were seated right by the chef station so we could watch the fire & them prepare the meals. We liked feeling the warmth of the fire. Can't wait to return when the outdoor patio is open. The food was fabulous!

They were taking reservations online when they were closed. Our party showed up along with other parties waiting for the host to basically tell us all to go home and that it “happens frequently”. Very bad experience

The wait staff seemed very confused as we walked in for our 9:45 reservation. Several dirty tables and not a single other party in the restaurant. The overall experience felt awkward and inconveniencing. I would not recommend breakfast/brunch at the Iron Horse based on this experience, which is disappointing as I’ve been here before for brunch outside and the experience was fine.

I was appalled at the complete lack of COVID precautions followed by ASH. Our waitress had her mask down below her mouth (using it as a chin covering) for the entire time she was serving us. Another staff member, who appeared to be a manager, also had his mask down below his nose for our entire time at ASH. We were sat 5 feet from the table next to us. The food was mediocre. The ambiance was dull.
