Iron Gate, located near Dupont Circle, stands as one of the district’s oldest continuously operating restaurants and is split between a sumptuous dining room, a wisteria covered patio and a handsomely enclosed carriageway that houses the bar.

Chef Anthony Chittum, a native of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and his team have revitalized the space with a menu that takes inspiration for the cuisines of Greece, Sicily, Sardinian and Southern Italy, interpreting those traditions and techniques using the finest products and seasonal ingredients of the Mid-Atlantic.

Iron Gate also serves as an idyllic oasis for fine private events both large and small, so please consider us when planning your next fête, we'd love to have you as our guests.

    Love this place. Sought it years ago and was so happy to go again. Great food, ambience, everything. I wish they were brought our options for people who are lactose intolerant, but other than that everything awesome!

    Wonderful Anniversary Dinner at Iron Gate. Hadn't been in years and it's as pretty as we remembered. We did the Family tasting with some of the wines that were on the wine pairing menu and everything was delicious, well presented, plentiful and healthy. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wines. We will definitely be back!

    We celebrated a graduation at Iron Gate Restaurant, and thought it was excellent! Our server, Natalie, was really friendly, attentive, and efficient! We also appreciated that the chef sent over some complimentary hummus to the table and that Natalie brought an extra dessert of delicious sorbet in honor of our daughter's graduation celebration!

    The bison flank steak was prepared perfectly, but that was second to the service
