This was our first visit to this establishment. It was comfortable and very quiet. I could whisper and hold a conversation. The service was exceptional. The food was out of this world. Why did I wait so long to try it? I don’t know but We are going back and bringing our friends!

Simply amazing. Iris is my favorite restaurant in Memphis. They're remaking themselves for modern times in the coming months, so I'm hopeful that the remodeled Iris will be just as good if not better than what's there now!

Excellent as always. Bone marrow and surf-n-turf are a must have. Broccoli Caesar salad was unique and wonderful. Service always top notch.
