Staff are welcoming and very professional. The ambiance is just right and that adds a lot to the experience. We started the night off with a delightful, eye catching menu item, the Signature Crispy Meyer Lemon & Honey Duck Wings (oh my goodness where have you been all my life!) Jared's creation tossed in chili and chives. I had the first taste just be looking at my plate! Think dining al Frescö in Thailand (Peking duck) and take your first bite, you can thank me later. The texture was on point and I have never tried anything like this before. Highly recommend. Why you may ask? Well crispy, tender and juicy. It's an infusion of chili mild citrus while astringent taste is dry and light. We Blue crab croquettes with saffron aioli, granny smith apple & fennel salad, toasted hazelnuts, tobiko caviar, also very delicious. Total hit at our table. Can't go wrong with that. We had mire items will love to share our experience on another review. Love this place :)))) Kahrlly Patricia J.
The service and food was excellent and we had a toddler with us! We are returning for our wedding anniversary next week.
I've never seen a larger chicken breast!! This "beast of a breast" covers the entire plate! The roasted apple and thyme emulsion sets it apart from any other schnitzel. Love the seasonal veggies being fresh from the farm.
Probably the best rib eye on any menu. Juicy, succulent and seasoned to perfection. I highly recommend this menu item.
Our dinner guests asked me what do I recommend for entree. My retort to them was simply, I have and continue to return to what is now my most favorite restaurant in this area near Laguna Woods and possibly all of Orange County. One of the basic draws to this 5 star and eventual Michelin to be rated is the fact that I want to try every entree offered but I cant stop ordering Lamb Shank. The taste is beyond comprehension. I have dabbled on my spouses plate to try other offerings and they are incredible ..... but while I survey the offerings before coming to Ironwood Craft Grille ..... I get there and with all good intention order Lamb Shank. OMG
Food and atmosphere was amazing. Came with my parents and girlfriend and it was a very pleasant experience. I am very happy that they were pleased with the decor and service. Food was awesome and just an overall good experience!
I had heard about the crispy Jidori Chicken Schintzal from a friend. It is so delicious! My daughter had a taste of mine and she ended up getting that dish for her birthday dinner. I highly recommend it! Winner winner crispy Jidori Chicken Schintzal dinner!
Rainbow Trout with Herb butter and seasonal veggies. I live in NorCal but I want to come back! Delicious and cooked perfectly! Took about 5 bites past being full purely for the taste. Lol #sorrynotsorry
Came for my birthday with family. Lots of different preferences. I had the fresh fish Chefs dish. Our waitress went and checked on a question I had, came back saying it was the Chef's favorite fish dish. Well, it was excellent. As was all the meals at our table. Very Hightly recommend this place - service was very good, and a wonderful vibe.
Absolutely the best! My wife and I love Ironwood. The food is always cooked to perfection and along with the fantastic service it makes the best Friday or Saturday night dinners to relax after a long week. The restaurant itself has a nice ambiance with low to mid noise level so we can enjoy our meal and have nice conversation. I feel the meals are priced very good especially since the food and service is so good. I would recommend Ironwood for any occasion. I promise you won't be disappointed!!
I celebrated my birthday there was looking for a steak The best I ever had and the service and the staff were the best will always eat there and tell all my friends thank you for the wonderful birthday Ironwood had that drink Scott and my name is Scott it was great to everything I got was over the top and out of this world thank you Ironwood Scott
This meatball is a solo act and no sneeze would ever cause it to roll on the floor and out the door. It's the perfect blend of seasonings and baked just right. Yummy!
I can't rave enough about this restaurant. My fiancé and I have been to this restaurant about 7 times. We have had a handful of items on the menu and they are all AMAZING. As of last night, my absolute favorite item on the menu is the waygu burger. I'm still drooling over it. The flavors are just to die for & the quality of food is just out of this world. Juicy patty with bacon jam in every bite!
This is always prepared to perfection. Along with other wonderful dishes (love the giant meatball!), Ironwood is a terrific restaurant that never disappoints.
No matter what you order ,its over the top. What ever the chief has as a special you should try it. Also have a mixtolajust cocktail and dessert cocktail. All i can say is it's special starting at the front door to finish. 10 stars
The branzino was absolute perfection! Prepared expertly along.with amazing fingerling potatoes and perfectly cooked Mediterranean vegetables. Fresh fish at its best! Our service was superb as well!
I don't care for duck, but these were absolutely delicious! I have to order them each time I visit!
I'm a big fan of seafood offerings which in addition to the beautiful salmon preparation has also included an awesome Arctic char ( I hope to see it again on the menu soon) and a spectacular Chilean sea bass!... The seasonal vegetable / grain Accompaniments are always delicious.... overall fabulous!
Tender, flavorful, and beautiful.
Me, my wife and mom, came here for my cousin's company Christmas party. The food was amazing. We had the burger, steak, fries, veggies, dessert everything was great. I highly recommend this place.
You haven't had a meatball until you've had an Ironwood Giant meatball. Italian flavors and ribbon spinach pasta along with the seasonal vegetables makes this one of my "go to" menu items. This is the only dinner item my grandson will order because he loves it so much.
We came here for a family get together. The Food and service was Amazing! Their House Fries were not the only item we tried which by the way were the best fries I've ever eaten they were addictive!!, their Crispy Brussel sprouts, Wagyu Burger, Heirloom Vegetables, Steak, and Organic Butter lettuce were all outstanding in flavour, presentation and cooked to perfection. Topped off with the Oatmeal raisin Cookie Crumble for dessert and this was the perfect family get together I will cherish, because of great food and wonderful service that makes you feel welcome and want to come back again and again.
We lovingly call this "the Huge chicken nugget" in our house. We order with a side of fries for the Kids Meal out of your dreams! Best chicken you will ever taste and always prepared perfectly. You won't regret this decision.
The steak was amazing, great flavor and so tender. Better than Ruths Chris. The service was great and everyone was so friendly, will definitely be back!
Ironwood is one of our favorite restaurants in Orange County! The food, ambiance, service, menu selections, location and cocktails are superb!
My husband and I recently had our anniversary dinner there and I was lucky enough to try the delicious Chef's daily market fresh fish. It was the mahi mahi and it was cooked to perfection! The flavors were robust and savory. The fish melted in my mouth. Every bite was a taste of heaven! My husband had the chefs daily meat and the steak was mouth watering! We absolutely loved the food and the ambiance. We were admiring the layout of the restaurant. It was spacious and clean. The energy of the restaurant and the people working there were incredible! Definitely made our dining experience enjoyable!
It was outstanding as well as the macaroni, season fries and brownie dish. Posting a link to your site on my FB page today. Met Kyle Simpson last weekend while I was working and he recommended that I drop by for dinner with my wife. Great idea we both loved the food and the service was outstanding.
One of the meals we ever had! Food and service are excellent!
Ahhhhhmazing! The meat falls off the bone.
This is truly and amazing appetizer. We have enjoyed it on every visit!
The most moist and flavorful steak I've had in quite awhile!! My husband and I are big meat eaters and we genuinely are a bit snobby when it comes to good steak especially Rib eye because marbling is everything. The first bite we took into all the juices just swirled into our mouth with bursts of flavor! Red mash potatoes are always the best because the consistency is smoother then regular potatoes, also it's a perfect dish because they give you an ample amount of seasonal vegetables to pair with a meaty bite and let me tel you the only thing I regret asking for is more sauce on my steak because I am a sauce feen!
What a wonderful pre-concert dinner at Ironwood our party of four enjoyed this evening. From the consistently excellent service to the accommodating waitstaff-- so much added to our positive and memorable experience. Ironwood: You've gained patrons for life. With fresh, tasty ingredients in every dish and drink artistically presented, I can now confirm that Ironwood will be a destination for life's many celebrations in this family!
Wow! What an amazing appetizer! The light lemon sauce was a superb balance to the crispness of the duck. Absolutely delicious, and enough for two to share.
Incredible value for an exceptional steak. This is a must try restaurant, so conveniently located. Great ambiance, fantastic service staff. You can't miss with this one, but make a reservation as they have gotten busy as word has spread about what a fantastic place this is.
I usually don't like fish but I'm gluten free and dairy free so I couldn't eat the delicious Jidori Chicken!! I ordered the special fish of the day, a grilled sea bass, and omg it tasted amazing! I trusted the chef would prepare it so good I would like it and he did. No butter or dairy. Service was exquisite as always!
If you are looking for a great rib eye steak you don't have to go to a fancy steak house to get one. Not only is the steak the best I have had but the overall experience at this restaurant is fantastic. The wait staff are amazing the manager is extremely professional and personal and the ambiance is really cool. The entire menu is outstanding. I am a steak guy but my wife loves their salmon and the Chilian sea bass when it is available. You won't have to go to the bank before you go here, unlike the fancy steak houses we use to go to. Do yourself a favor and try the rib eye and see if I know what I am talking about
