First time visiting Iron Bridge. The food was great, the staff very attentive without being overbearing. Locally sourced ingredients too. Definitely will be going back.

Supper at The Bridge never disappoints! Excellent service, a delicious Pinot from OR, fabulous grilled oysters (saffron, leeks, oh my...) and the best burger in the region.

We have dined at Wine Bridge several times over the past few years and always love our meal. If anything it seems to be getting better. Our amiable server TJ was quite knowledgeable about wine pairings which enhanced the delicious Arctic Char with skin so crisp I had to eat it!. The restaurant cheerfully substituted asparagus for kale. The crispy Brussels sprouts are always a treat and the pulled meat tacos were outstanding starters.. The kitchen knows what it's doing. This popular restaurant is always crowded but I understand that Mondays are the quietest night. Bottles of wine are 40% off on Thursdays, however, if you are so inclined. Overall 5 stars. 8 for food 10 for service.

The brussel sprout appetizer is amazing, easily could be the entire meal. Both the baked brie and califlower were excellent as well. The plantain gnocchi were quite good, a nice update on a traditional dish. The only issue was that it came with too much meat!

The kitchen needs help! They should learn how to prepare a duck breast before placing it on the menu. My duck was fatty as they failed to render the fat and achieve a crispy skin even while maintaining the appropriate medium rare cook temperature. Big disappointment.

Wines are excellent and almost makeup for the poor performance in the kitchen.

Definitely earned a return visit. Fine selection of wine. Excellent food. The grilled romaine was attractively presented and fun to eat. The fish stew had a rich broth and contained almost too much diverse seafood. One of the best I have ever had.

Overall experience was A+. Met with friends to celebrate birthdays. Stacy, our waitress, was engaging and very attentive. Treated us like we were the only table she was attending to, on a super busy Saturday evening. The food was absolutely tasty - quality ingredients and well seasoned. We had starters, entrees, and dessert. Did not feel rushed as the timing of bringing out the food was well orchestrated. An enjoyable experience by each person in our party.

You'll definitely need a reservation, if you are planning on a weekend dinner there. Well worth it though - the food is elegant and professionally prepared and presented. The wine selection is commendable, and the ability to taste rare wines is excellent. This is the third time we have visited, and are looking forward to our next outing there.

Normally I rave about the food at Iron Bridge, without exception. Have to say that the red velvet cake roll dessert was a huge disappointment. The cake part was incredibly tough and very hard to cut, and had virtually no flavor. Otherwise the meal was excellent. Had the watercress salad and the sacchettoni. Delicious!

Food was delicious. Service was wonderful. We were there a very long time just talking, and our water was constantly filled - even after the bill was paid, but the waiter never was intrusive. Such a pleasant experience.
My one suggestion to the restaurant would be to put a long pad on the seat of the long bench, as well as a long pillow or pad in the back of the bench. My friend did complain of the hardness of the bench.

Usually when I go to these "American" restaurants, their appetizers would be fantastic but their entrees would be lacking. Not this place. In fact, I was blown away by the quality of their foods such as but not limited to their charcuterie, brussel sprouts (who thought they could be THAT tasty?) and their NY strip steak. After going to various steak houses, I have always preferred cooking my own steaks because they're usually considerably better than the steakhouses I would go to. I'm talking about Morton's Steakhouse, Ruth Chris, Long Horn, Outback, Texas Roadhouse, Mastro's Steakhouse (LA) and others. Even though I still prefer to eat my own steaks, the NY Strip steak I had here was none the less fantastic; perfectly cooked (medium rare), juicy, super tender and beefy, the way the strip is supposed to be. I can go on and on about this experience I've had with my wife just a couple nights ago but that would probably bore you. TJ, our waiter was fantastic in every aspect. No complaints. Just happiness.

Enjoyable Saturday evening. This is a tough reservation to get. Window seating is cozy but worked out fine. Service was excellent, very comfortable atmosphere. Food was uneven. Duck wings were a disappointment - was there any flavor on them? Red Velvet dessert was served too cold. Entrees (cioppino, steak) were excellent. Meal, drinks and tip worked out to about $75 per person. I would go back again.

Hello- this was, unfortunately, a visit that does not make wish to visit your restaurant again without better accommodations.

-I asked to bring out a side with our appetizer- this did not happen
-We waited nearly 45 minutes for our food without being given an update
-I was given the wrong dish. The waiter was curt when he replied "You ordered the X" to which I said "I did not; I ordered the Y"
-My kale salad (the right order) was cold when it was supposed to be hot
-The french fries tasted like they came from McDonald's
-The whiskey pour we asked for was minuscule- less than 1 oz

Overall, we were there nearly 2 hours during "lunch" and received miserable service and mediocre food.

I would greatly appreciate any chance to rectify this!

Very nice Valentines Day dinner. Food was excellent and they offered 2 wine flights to go along with the menu. Fixed price menu was $85 and Flight was $40, so a little pricey, but I felt it was worth it. Service was good, very attentive staff.
