It is difficult to find "old world" dining and serivce in today's world. But, if that is what you are looking for, this is the place! The waiters are very "continental", professional and really know food and wine. The Steak Diane is prepared tableside and is delicious! The souffles are wonderful.....make sure you save room. They even have live music on the weekends. But, the music is not heard in the dining room....it is very quiet....except for conversation. Dining as it used to be. Dining as it is meant to be!

My wife and I are always looking for places where 40-somethings and up can dance, without feeling old and unwelcome. I'm pleased to report that the Iron Gate's bar offers a live band Thursday through Saturday nights! The bands are great, the dance floor is adequate if not large, the bar itself is spacious, and the crowd is fun -- with a good mix of couples and singles. The drinks were inexpensive, and I noticed more than one group ordering food from the well thought of attached restaurant.

This place is no longer the smoke-filled dive it once was. It's fun, the dancing is good, the food is good, the staff is friendly, and you will have a good time!

I haven't dined at the Iron Gate for a few years....as usual, the experience was incredible! We were welcomed back over and over. The food is fantastic - I love the Steak Diane...I don't use the menu - combination salad....steak diane....souffle! The experience was awesome and I won't wait so long to return!

Kaveh and Dimitrios may be the "odd couple" of restaurateurs, in personality, in spirit, in appearance -- but together they have made this one of the top restaurants on the Peninsula. Year after year it stays consistent, and offers perhaps the widest-ranging veal menu anywhere. Service is impeccable, the atmosphere oozes class, and yes, the prices are a tad high, but usually well worth it.
