I live in MD but rarely have eaten in Columbia and never heard of Iron Bridge before. But my husband found it and made a reservation there so we went on a weeknight for dinner. Totally worth it! I was surprised how full it was on a Tuesday but now I see why. The staff handled the crowds expertly. There did not seem to be a hostess, the guy who became our server was also the one who greeted and seated us. He had a low key style while still being very attentive and knowledgeable. Other staff we encountered were equally competent. It's basically two modest-sized rooms, but very nice decor. You could be comfortable there in shorts or business attire, and we saw both. We enjoyed the "couch table" which was different than we have ever had at a restaurant! The menu is midsized but we were satisfied with the range of options. For dinner it's mainly salad, steak, seafood. And of course, the wine! My husband ordered a flight with dinner and ended up buying a case to go! I had the daily sangria. There were a few service problems despite my previous comments on the quality of staff. We both asked for our meat better done and neither request was honored. This is a common problem at fine-dining places, but unfortunately I literally cannot eat anything rare. We were clear in our request and I wish it had been honored, probably I should have sent mine back accordingly but I did not this time. Next time I would. Also we had to ask for bread - this is the 2nd time in a week this has happened to me at an otherwise good place. Is that the new thing?? Finally when I ordered the sangria the server didn't point out it would be white wine. I should have asked, but, I think of sangria as defaulting to red so it would have been helpful to be warned on this point. Total with wine, tax, tip was just over $100 so it was reasonable but certainly not "cheap" to my standards. I do hope to return some day soon!
