Loved the food, but sorry it moved out of the other building. I think I remember a view to the outside. The woven branch wall art almost made up for it though!

Had a business lunch there. Service was attentive, atmosphere very pleasant, decor excellent. Food was ok only. My "Thai" salad with beef was well done. The burgers were overcooked and not too tasty. Excellent scones/bread. Coffee standard. Often eat in museum restaurants which are uniformly charming with good atmosphere and attentive service. Food is often excellent though not always. I... More

I would highly recommend Iris for couples, friends or family for a weekend brunch destination. I especially enjoyed the modern venue that was well lit and pretty. The food was surprisingly wonderful, as was the service. I had the Eggs Benedict which included a fried green tomato and sweet potato biscuit. They have an okay wine list and make a... More

The atmosphere was fantastic. The burger I ordered was delicious and I love that it was good beef too. The waitstaff was wonderful and very nice. I would definitely go there again.

The Iris is a really nice place to eat. The luncheon menu includes everything from light salads to entrees. Much of the food is locally sourced. The chicken salad is particularly nice; the recipe changes every day and is available as a salad or sandwich. The portions are nice. And, the prices are good as well. The place looks as... More

Today, my wife and I had a Terrific Lunch at Iris. It was my first visit and my wife's second one. First, the décor.... wonderful!. Monochromatic white (of course everyone will not like this, but we DID). The art on the walls is very nice. The service was prompt and professional. The restaurant employees were properly dressed (no shorts. nor... More

We ate brunch/lunch here while touring the museum. The food was fresh and the chef tries to buy from local farmers. It's a great place to take a break during your visit to the museum.

We had lunch at Iris recently while on a trip to Raleigh. The restaurant was in a wing of the Art Museum (a wonderful museum representing some important artists) near the gift shop. The entire building is not to our taste, architecture-wise (it's modern, with white walls and expansive spaces and ceiling heights), and the Iris Cafe is open and... More

Great well lit restaurant, Food was outstanding and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. On our first trip, we were welcomed as if we were regular customers. My wife had the "Cubana on Ciabatta." I had a spinich wrapped Talipa sandwich which was very good. Try these two meals.

We usually enjoy eating here, but disappointed this time with the service and my husband's steak was fatty and not tender. My scallops were delicious. I wonder since we were a party of 6 and the waiter knew he was going to get 18% that he did not give us the attention we should have received. The music is nice... More
