We ate at Ironwood last night for dinner- we were avoiding the RUSH of Valentine's Day and celebrating our engagement one year ago. My husband had eaten dinner at Ironwood before, but I had only ever been to a brunch party out on the patio. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Started with the steam buns and I also got... More

The ambiance here was amazing but I found the food to be very average. The taquitos (sp?) that we had for an app were bland. The burger was good-but not great. The cheesecake was good.

We visited on New Years even when they had a fixed price 3-course meal. There were 10 entree choices plus soup/salad and dessert. This was our first visit. I had the Chilean Sea Bass, my wife had a roasted chicken, and my son the filet mignon. The lobster bisque was good, but not the best we have had. I had... More

Our recent dinner was somewhat disappointing. The service was pleasant but the quality of the food was lacking. The menu did not have any interesting starters. As a main dish, I ordered the "goat cheese chicken"; it was pretty dry, and did not have the flavor of a real free range chicken; the romesco sauce that came with it tasted... More

The food was good, portions on the smaller side and pricey. It's a pretty place. Service adequate but value for dollar not there. I won't rush back. Left hungry.

The food at this restaurant was good but the steak I got was not prime beef as advertised. I would say it was maybe choice. When I questioned the server she said it was black angus beef and prime. I told her that being black angus does not make it prime beef. Maybe I got a bad cut but the... More

We've lived in this area for over 10 years, and over that span have eaten at this restaurant probably a dozen times. It gets good ratings, granted, but recently, they have jacked up the price of their food so that dinner salads start at $21 and entrees go for $30-40. Nothing else has changed. Just the price. I enjoy quality... More
