Iron Bridge Wine Company - Columbia Ratings and Reviews
Have not been here own a long time but was very pleased with the dinner and the service.They have a unique well thought out wine list and the prices are not out of line with other places we have dined. Server was well versed in the menu and very helpful. You could tell she was very experienced in that she was always there when you needed r wanted something but only there at that time.
Our first time at IBWC & definitely not our last. Only thing that would have made the experience better was for it to be closer to Forest Hill. The food was exceptional (charcuterie, mussels & pork belly, & bread pudding to end. The whiskey flight was well presented along with several wonderful wines. IBWC has a great and varied wine store. Love this place.
My girlfriend and I went to Iron Bridge on Monday night. We have been going there off and on for a few years and the experience has always been delightful but this time was beyond delightful! Thanks to our server Christina who made our evening one to never forget!! As two people who have been in the service industry for over 15 years and know the ups and downs and to get the service we got was above and beyond. I typically don't write this much about service but Christina needs to be recognized for her amazing service! She was attentive but not over bearing and it seemed like every time we were wanting something she was there with a smile on her face! Everything from the cheese and charcuterie plate to the fries and brussels were fantastic and we finished with mussels which were the best combination of flavors I have had in a long time and the bits of pork belly were a perfect addition!! To top off the evening we were going back and forth on weather to get another order and Christina heard us going back and forth and we told her we were going to step out for a minute and when we came back we were surprised to see another order on the table and found out Christina ordered them on the house and that $14 dish goes far beyond the minimal charge for how great it was! Thanks Christina you are awesome and we will be back soon and will definitely be requesting you!!
Back again it's Monday Steak Night. I've always tried something new and the meal never fails to impress me. Tonight went with Chipotle Black Eyed Pea Soup as first course and the Pan Seared Bravette Steak with bacon braised Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potato Hash for second course. Both were excellent and the steak was cooked to perfection Medium Rare. The 2 course special is only $22.17 and,you get to choose from specially prepared soup or Salad and a selection of 3 types of steak. Loved my meal. Service excellent too! Paired with a nice Bordeaux!
The biggest disappointment was that none of the items on the online menu were
available the night we dined there. We ended up ordering an $18 hamburger which
was ok, nothing special, and way overpriced. In addition we ordered desserts that
were mediocre at best, and one bar drink that was not good. I know this is a popular
dining destination but don't know why.
My husband and I booked a reservation for our post valentine's dinner at iron bridge. The place was quite busy same as our first visit mid of last year. Though our table given to us was pretty tight and because it was a long couch, tables are almost near to each other. Service was good. Got the pork belly mussels for appetizer which was incredibly addictive and delicious! We both got the signature strip steak. For some reason, I wasn't impressed. It was fatty & feels like I'm cutting a rubber. I would still probably go back and try other selections.
the waiter was unbelievably rude. Would not go back. Have been their several times with fair service, but waiter had an "attitude".
At one point he said something I didn't catch and ask him to repeat he daid, "I wasn't talking to you, I was talking to her".
Once we were seated it was fantastic, but had to wait about 10 mins after our reservation. It was definitely hectic being Valentine's day, but wasn't exp3cting to wait so much. The food and wine could not have been better. The waitress and chef did a fantastic job. Also was compted a glass of champagne that made up for the wait
Iron Bridge is truly a local favorite. The atmosphere is always serene and cozy, and we love coming here on special occasions. Most recently we ordered fancy cocktails, a charcuterie board (which was incredible and came with lots of extras), and dessert. Everything is always delicious and the service is so amazing and friendly!
This restaurant is conveniently located right on Route 108 in Columbia. It is a very quaint home style building with limited seating. The menu is unusual, but everything we ordered was very good including appetizers, main courses and desserts. A little pricey, but not crazy. Our waitress was great and her service could not have been better.
Before I start, I would say I would be willing to try this restaurant again on any normal weekend or evening. Maybe our mistake was coming during Restaurant Week here? The brunch Restaurant Week menu had several entree options that were just appetizers on the regular menu. Dinner was being served at 2pm, even though brunch normally goes until 3:30pm. Our brunch menus were switched to the dinner Restaurant Week menu, and maybe 1 option was $40, all the other entrees on the list were priced well above that. Now we had to pay $40++ pp for dinner at 2pm. We ended up just ordering brunch items off the regular menu, and the food itself was good. The atmosphere is cute, cozy with its walls of wine. If we had come during a regular week, I think we would have had a fine or good experience, but our experience during Restaurant Week was a little weird.
I am a repeat customer at this restaurant as the chef is awesome. As usual my meal was delicious. Sadly my visit on 2/5 was very disappointing. I arrived promptly for my 2pm reservation. My roommate and I were seated in the newest area of the restaurant and unfortunately right next to the main door. The only thing that separates guest from the outside temperatures is a curtain. My roommate and I quickly realized that this table would not make for a comfortable dining experience. We asked what seemed like the shift manager if she could move us because we were cold at our table...she said no (though she was setting up a 2.top). She explained that there was nothing else available. Rather than leave....We ate lunch in our coats. Our waiter was okay.....at first he seemed hurried and distracted, then seemed to warm up to us (in his defense, it truly was busy in his area). Hostess was upbeat, and very pleasant. I think a swinging door might be a great investment for guest that are forced to sit at tables near main doors.
This visit to the Iron Bridge was one of many. We keep returning because the service is excellent and the food choices eclectic and tasty. This time one of the people in our group was a vegetarian and accidently ordered a meat meal. The food desrcirption was not too clear. The staff immediately took the meat meal away and brought another order. No questions asked. And my special order was accomodated too. This place is a hidden gem.
Although we have dined here on several occasions in the past and adore the Chef's creativity, spot on technique, and farm to table point of view, this experience was horrific. Our server, Casey, was snide and offensive from the start. His surprisingly snarky attitude was inappropriate and uncalled for and made what should have been a celebration into an awkward experience that so did not represent what our past experiences lead us to expect. Everyone has bad days but Casey had no business substituting his bad day for our celebration. He scolded us for our ordering, scoffed at our attempt to select a cheese platter, avoided our table. He was inept in handling the checks and credit cards at the conclusion of a meal we were all too eager to put behind us. One of our party was actually overcharged by a substantial amount which she discovered when she reviewed her online transaction record later that evening. Its is amazing how someone like Casey can so thoroughly erase a hard earned reputation for fine dining, superb customer service, and spot on dining experience in one visit. I was deeply embarassed and ashamed that I had recommended this venue and the result was so completely negative.
Our server had an interesting personality that ultimately became quite fun, but.... he was absent = out of sight for long periods of time between "events"; for example, bringing us tastings of 2 wines (his idea) and then not returning so that we could order one, replacing my dropped napkin (his choice) - I was almost finished with my dessert when he brought me a fresh napkin, etc. It was very bizarre; seemed as if they didn't have enough waitstaff on.
Iron Bridge has been a favorite for some time, but our recent brunch was the best meal we've ever had there. Perhaps the new kitchen has inspired the chefs. We feasted on perfect breakfast potatoes, poached eggs with serrano ham and kale. For a starter, the Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts were a revelation. And my cocktail, called an Elementary, made me wish I could lick the glass. A wonderful meal.
