“No review can do justice”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

I have lived in Pensacola for 27 years. In my time here I have tried almost every establishment at least once. There are a few places in town that have come and gone and some that have been here forever. Some poor and some amazing. Yet, there are few to none that have left the impression Iron left on me.

From the moment I walked in with my fiancé, we felt extremely comfortable. We sat at the bar and watched the kitchen staff power through the dinner rush. Not only did they handle it with a calm and exciting attitude, but executed every meal with perfection.

I ordered the maple old fashioned first to start the evening and it was perfect. A slight maple note and a piece of crispy bacon in the glass. Perfection.

I ordered a New York strip and it was the best meal I have ever had. Hands down. I cannot compare this meal to anything I have ever had . The meal and staff were on point and made it worth every penny. If you live here or visit, please do yourself a favor and give it a try.

For desert we had a sample of their house made ice creams made by Peyton, incredible!! You will not be disappointed. Lastly, Our waitress was Carrie and she was phenomenal. She took great care of us without being intrusive and made sure we were accommodated properly from the moment we sat down.

Thanks again to the staff and chef Alex. We will be back.

“Satisfying to the eye, as well as the palate.”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

I have been wanting to try this place for a while after seeing photo posts and reviews of the delicious looking food. I was not disappointed, at all! A group of us ladies went on a Wednesday night. Each of us enjoyed EVERYTHING we ordered. Every dish was a work of art. I love presentation, as well as taste, and this place delivered both!! I have already told all my friends and plan to return myself. This restaurant is a great addition to our fine dining establishments in our community.

“Wow, wow, WOW!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

So good we came back for the New Year's Eve special they had. First visit one week ago, I had the Kobe beef lamb burger... HEAVEN in my mouth! Cooked to perfection and so huge I only are half... My husband had the other half for lunch the next day! Tonight, the five course menu for NYE ... A pancake delight, pork belly, tender scallop, tasty veal, chocolate amazingness... Absolutely delightful meal TWICE in one week.

The appetizers and the fish are Wonderful! This is my favorite restaurant - they are inventive and the service is lovely - ask the team to bing back the beef cheeks!
