My family and friends went out for a dessert one night and have a delightful time at Iguana. We were surprised by the big servings of their beautiful desserts and ended up with take home bags as well. We came back after three days to have lunch with our family friends and we enjoyed the food and atmosphere immensely. The... More

Booked a table to celebrate my wife's graduation. Arrived early but wasn't an issue. All the meals were very good and very tasty and very reasonable. Good service capped off by the staff bringing out a complementary chocolate cake with a candle on the top to congratulate my wife on her special day. Well done to all the staff.

Our wait staff were excellent. The service was great. We had entree, mains and desserts. Every dish had a little surprising twist that was well done. The best Affogatto I have ever had

Very disappointing....my husband was served warm beer. After drinking the first one, my hubby asked for another brand if they couldn't get his first brand cold....after about 10mins they brought out the same brand that looked lovely and cold, but it wasn't much colder then the first....it had most likely been put into a bucket of ice for 10 mins....

good atmosphere, average food, this place gets very busy and the service can be slow. We gave up waiting for desert menus and left.

Service could have been better as we had to ask if some one could take our drinks order. We had been sitting there for quite a while and no one had come near our table of 12. The food was really lovely and no one had any complaints there. It is a noisy place so you wouldn't want to take... More

We have been twice to the Iguana - we went back because the pork dish was so amazing the first time and we just had to have it again. However we were disappointed the second time as the dish was dry and over cooked whereas it was perfect the first time. We got a gourmet pizza as well and that... More
