    Luckily they were not busy for Thanksgiving dinner because they did not have my reservation on file. Open Table and Ironwood should work together to resolve this issue.

    I had the Thanksgiving special, my husband had the filet and my son had the lamb. It was all amazing! The Hangar appetizer was super delicious and the drinks, oh my goodness. The bartender was phenomenal, came to the table to talk about our preferences and then made custom cocktails :) Our server was great and the host is a delight and a super personality. All in all a wonderful experience.

    So the Thanksgiving Plate included the usual fare - bird, sweet potatoes, dressing - but the veggies were not so great - uncooked green beans and not so sure what the others were. The food was almost at room temperature when it arrived. I enjoyed the environment.

    Everything is on point! From the ambience to the cocktails to the food to the service. Everyone was gracious, knowledgeable and thoughtful. Hayley was our server and she’s phenomenal!!! She guided us through our menu and her suggestions were spot on! Our family met the the night before Thanksgiving…and our meal there outshined Thanksgiving dinner! Can’t wait to go back!

    Sunday brunch with our mom was amazing. All the staff and servers are very warm and outgoing. Our food was amazing and the prices are very reasonable. The restaurant has a perfect sized dining area with booths, tables and bar seating. The managers are very visible and accommodating. Wonderful place 😍‼️ We will definitely go back.

    Maybe it was an off day for the restaurant but I’m not sure that I’d return. The ambiance was nice but the service was beyond slow and lackluster. The food came out cold as if it had been forgotten in the window for a while before making it to our table.

    Not sure why some people review this establishment with their biggest complaint is the price. We had drinks, 2 apps, dinner and dessert and was glad to see the bill wasn’t near what I thought it would be. Will definitely go back again. Great location, service and food!

    My family and friends gathered for brunch. I booked 3 days prior to the reservation and got there the hostess could not find the reservation. I showed her my open table confirmation and then we were seated . Our waitress took 10-15 minutes to greet us . We had to ask for water several times. Our appetizer came out wrong . The manager made it right by bringing another . After ordering our meals we never saw our waitress again. When we finally asked someone else for our bill we were given the wrong bill by our waitress. After another 10 minutes we asked the manager for the right bill for our table . I’m guessing I won’t get my open table points??? It’s nice to see new restaurants in Birmingham. I hope things get better sooner than later at this restaurant. I’m going to give it one more try at a later time. Thank you

    Had a salad and wine at bar first evening; neat atmosphere, friendly and talented bar tender. Caesar salad was excellent (right flavor and amount of dressing, tasty croutons, and added shrimp were tasty and cooked just right) and nice size. Next day had lunch outside. My Bloody Mary wasn’t very flavorful—almost like it only contained tomato juice. I got the hanger steak frites and it was great. Steak tender and cooked to right temp. Yummy fries and a nice arugula side. My friend’s steak bruschetta had entirely too much fresh spinach piled on top, making it awkward to get to the actual bruschetta. However, our great server anticipated this and brought an extra empty plate to help move off some of the spinach. The actual bruschetta was great. I love the atmosphere there, and would go again.

    The server was sweet but forgot about us by the end of the night and had to be hunted down for checks and to go boxes. The food was ok, nothing to write home about and definitely not worth the price tag. You could get comparable food at a chain restaurant it was just plated nicer. We didn’t complain but we wouldn’t go back.

    The food was excellent. Went on a quiet Sunday night. We were seated promptly and put in our drink order - didn’t order apps, just dinner. Food arrived from another server and that was the last we saw of anyone. No one checked on our meal or if we needed anything. I would have loved another glass of wine. Even when the server came by she never asked about the meal, just if we were ready for the bill. I cannot imagine what it would be like on a busy night!
