We're new to the area and had been looking for a place to find a great burger, and Ironwood has become our go to restaurant for that. Consistently prepared and always delicious. Also love how they vary the style by the season.
An excellent bourbon drink for warm weather. It's got flavors of citrus that aren't subtle (which is a good thing!) and ends with a cool, fizzy bite from the ginger beer. It's on the sweet side, which is good to me, and is an experience of interesting flavors that combine wonderfully.
Best Bone -In you will ever have!!!!
This dish is what made me come to this restaurant in the first place! The lamb melts in your mouth, the sauces are so flavorful! I believe I had this with asparagus, it paired so well with a side of greens! The outdoor seating was so nice for a quick date night, can't wait to go back!
I have eat here many time and I cannot say enough good things about it. Almost anything eat here is fresh, healthy, and amazingly tasty. I highly recommend anyone to come here at least once. Who would've thought that such a quality restaurant would be tucked away in Laguna Hills.

A great restaurant coupled with first class service and a always smiling staff. If you want to experience gourmet dining with local price points then get up and support a fabulous local eatery. . .
These duck wings are life changing. The most amazing flavors and textures in one dish...unreal. You're doing yourself a disservice if you do not start with these.
Such a refreshing delicious beverage I added vodka to this and it was amazing!
This is my go-to dish at Ironwood, perfection every time. The burger is massive, loaded with delicious toppings to round out what is one of OC's top burgers. Call me boring, I get this dish every time for a good reason. Very generous side of fries. The fries have a nice crispy exterior and pillow-like on the inside. Pairs very well with a nice bold glass of cabernet or merlot.
This has been my favorite dish since I started eating at ironwood. the salmon is always cooked perfectly and I enjoy sharing the vegetables with my friends. It also tastes great with a glass of Riesling.
The most delicious chicken!!! This is my favorite meal and is always cooked perfectly!
My husband and I haven't been on a date in over a year, but are hoping to go out this weekend or next. I am choosing Ironwood as our long awaited date spot. I've been told how amazing ironwood is. by 3 separate couples on my street have been there and raves about the quality of their food and great cocktails!! I can't wait to try you Ironwood!
It's hard to write about just one thing here since everything I've had is absolutely superb. I've come here quite often and the customer service and food are great every time. Fried green tomatoes, duck wings, the brownie dessert.. and now I'm salivating. The steak is juicy and tender, full flavor and the prices are set so reasonable for the quality you get. I've done takeaway several times now since Covid, I am happy to support this amazing restaurant.
My favorite salad!
Excellent Cocktail - Spicy (sort of) Manhattan!
An excellent cocktail! I ordered it for delivery and it was incredible!
It's been so long since we had a good nice meal and I didn't have to cook....We did support Local...But felt we needed a Treat..So we got DoorDash and ordered from Ironwood Grill...yes we got the Ribeye dinners..and OMG...if you haven't tried them?? and you like an Awesome Aged steak? Both of us could have ate off of one, and still had leftovers..The mixture of Grilled veggies yum..and the Blue Cheese red potatoes..omgosh..The Black pepper steak gravy was a bonus...It's prolly the Best Steak we have had in Years...Well worth it!!
My wife and I have been to the restaurant a few times over the years but recently we have not been since we have been focusing on trying out some new places. Ironwood has always been one of our staple restaurants that always serves consistently good food and the staff there is wonderful. The best way to describe this place is that you get the quality of food that you would normally get with a 5 star restaurant but without all the pretension. Some of favorite dishes str the Crispy Jidori Chicken Schnitzel, the giant meatball, the burger, and the ribeye. The mac and cheese is pretty bomb too. I dont think we have ever had a bad meal here. Portion sizes are generous and I would consider it to be a good value based on the menu prices. You will definitely leave satisfied.
This is my favorite cocktail on the planet. So fresh, not too sweet and has a fun kick! I love everything at Ironwood but this is what brings me in.
Large enough for sharing. One of the best steaks we have had and we got fries instead of the mashed potatoes and couldn't be happier. The vegetables were to die for ! We love everything abjure ironwood ! Great portion sizes, great craft cocktails and a fun vibe !
Absolutely the best burger I have ever had! I cannot stop thinking about it. Thank you

EXTREMELY DELICIOUS! I am a picky eater with meat not seasoned correctly, but boy oh by this blew my socks and earrings off! Great job Chef!
My FAV drink!! The problem is its so refreshing I drink it too quickly!!
the bomb.com im ready for more
This ribeye is perhaps the best I've had in my life, cooked to perfection and so juicy. I also loved the blue cheese mashed potatoes!
Anything from double r ranch is exceptional, but the preparation at ironwood is outstanding. Perfectly cooked, sear les outside, beautiful red on the inside. Excellent
My husband and I go to Ironwood atleast every other week. We love sitting in the out door space over looking Saddleback Mountain during sunset. I'ts magical! Hands down my favorite plate is the Jidori Chicken Schnitzel. You get a huge crispy chicken breast with the most amazing creamy and buttery sauce drizzled all over it. Underneath you have perfectly cooked bed of vegetables. I've tries other plates but i always come back to the Jidori chicken. And pairs perfectly with a Lazy Dayz! Yuummmmm!
I've had this entree, it's fabulous. With the seasonal fresh vegetables, spaetzle - delicious. Its a huge portion but oh so good. It's as great as the Schnitzel I had in Austria. A must try; you won't be disappointed.
I was especially concerned that arriving for an early dinner (first hour of first day after re-opening) might mean the Napa Lamb Shank — which I'd never tried but succumbed to all of its great reviews during the epidemic — might not be so tender. Wow was I wrong. It truly was about the best lamb shank ever...and I've eaten my share over 72 years! Tender to absolute perfection, but even more surprisingly...a whole meal to itself. Not just generous in size and quality, but layered with but layered with thoughtful and perfectly prepared variety of ingredients that made it more like a 4-course meal. . My wife and I had been to the Ironwoods couple of times previously, always a great experience. Looking forward to making the lamb shank my default order...remembering to come hungry!
Excellent meal, have ordered it many times, and will continue to do so
My wife and I get these every time we come here. The contrast of the juicy duck and the tangy lemon makes this the best way I know to start a meal. They do a great job getting it crispy too, and the bone on the wing makes it feel fancy.
The lamb is one of my favorites, very good flavor and the meat is very tender. I've also been ordering this during COVID and I suggest that the topping of frisée and cherry tomatoes be placed in separate container or skipped altogehter. They get semi-cook in the togo container. My feedback is the same for the wagyu burger too if it's for a curbside pick up order.
To die for!
It was epic bro!!!! Smooth and sensual. Yum yum yum
Definitely my favorite cocktail on the menu .. Served in a glass full of shaved ice; it's kind of like having an adult beverage and dessert in one! .. can't wait for the restaurant to be open for dine-in .. in the meant I'll order them for takeout :)
My son Danny is one of the cooks. Great food, cooked just right. Try the Duck too. DELICIOUS!
Ironwood has really stepped up to provide great food AND a great customer experience during this COVID-19 crisis. The food is still fresh and excellent and the service is fantastic. Supporting this neighborhood gem during this period will allow us all to continue to enjoy their typical fresh menu, ambiance, great cocktails and wine when they can open up to serve inside again!
So delish, fresh but crispy and and the creamy burrata takes it to the next level. My favorite app.
I have never had anything I did not love. I love to look at the board to see the specials as there have been some really great entrees there. The service and quality it the best. But I really love that the quality stayed the same during this crazy coronavirus time as we have tried to support our favorite places and so pleased to report the quality has always been superb. Can't wait to you are back in full swing again.
If you like lamb, this dish needs to be on your short list. Absolutely outstanding and the portion is just right...huge! It's a real treat to have such a terrific neighborhood restaurant and so glad they are able to maintain their takeout business.
