This restaurant has been in existence for many years and has always been our choice for a delightful dinner, locally. (We usually ask for table 33 and settle for table 3...they're both tucked in a corner, nice and quiet.) The flaming goodies are amazing, served tableside (possibly the place doesn't have sprinklers??) Service has always been perfect and even the... More

My wife has an end of the year birthday, so after spending the Christmas holidays with family among the redwoods near Santa Cruz, it was an easy decision to celebrate in San Francisco before catching a flight back to Atlanta. But where to eat? San Fran has so many great restaurants from which to choose. TripAdvisor came to the rescue.... More

The Iron Gate is very classy in terms of ambience and the staff. Traditional French-Continential. And some of the food was good with lots of flambes and souflees. However, we mistakely all order different varieties of steaks, all in the $$$ range. They were horrible. So for all the pomp and circumstances, the entrees were so disappointing. Very sad experience.

The ceasers salad is very good too. Try the souffle for desert, very delicious. Overall, I think the food at Iron... More

The Iron gate is traditional old style white table cloth and waiters in a tux. A dependable menu and large wine list. Table side service for... More
