Description: For over 21 years, The Blue Iguana has been a fixture here in Fairfax, Virginia. One of the first of the new school of Chef driven restaurants, The Blue Iguana was finally sold by it's first owners, whom have retired, to veteran Clifton & Nargiza Wilcox in August of 2013. Since 2013 a lot of great changes were made. We strive to give every guest the best experience at Blue Iguana. So come have a drink, come have a bite, enjoy the best SUNDAY BRUNCH, BEST HAPPY HOUR and get to know our family of the great staff in Northen Virginia.

A quirky restaurant - off the beaten paty - good food - if you eat outside it will be smokey - ate here over New Years Eve and the fix price menu was good. Family friendly and the wait staff seems happy to be working there.

We have eaten there for both lunch and dinner. The sandwiches and the entree salads are a better choice than the burgers and it is a tad expensive for lunch, about $13 per person plus drinks and tip. It is much more of a bargain for dinner with very good entrees at reasonable prices. Service is excellent.

This restaurant has great food, and the service is fantastic!! There are weekend specials based on market availability of seafood. They will gladly substitute and adjust any item ordered. It is a little pricey, but the food is definitely worth it!! On Sunday mornings, they have a delicious brunch buffet, which you can add Mimosas and Bloody Marys to for a small charge!
