Iron Bridge Wine Company - Columbia Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I had dinner here to celebrate a special occasion. The flatbread goat cheese pizza appetizer was delicious. The dough was perfection. The rest of the meal was very good, too. We had the creme brulee and chocolate dessert. It was phenomenal. The waitress provided truly outstanding service. She made excellent suggestions for wines. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
This is one of my favorite local restaurants. It's very popular, so it helps to make a reservation in advance, especially if you want to dine between, say, 6:30 and 7:30. The restaurant is not very big, and there may be a wait even if you made a reservation. Unfortunately, the bar area isn't large either, so you may be cramped for space as you wait for your table. But the menu is inventive and changes often, and the creme brulee is amazing, so I keep coming back.
We recently moved to the area and had driven past many times, always saying we needed to try it out. We finally went with a friend who was visiting and it was terrific. It feels like you walked into a restaurant in Napa. Dark wood and walls of wine. The cocktails were good and a nice wine selection. The octopus and the brussel sprout appetizers were delicious as was the crab stuffed squash blossom. My steak was cooked perfectly and the asparagus, which I normally don't like, was tender and mild. There are several items on the menu that sound delicious. Will definitely be back.
As always, The Iron Bridge excelled in the quality and innovation of the food and wine, as well as the service. The menu is always changing, and they had a number of specials just for Mother's Day. Everyone in our party had an excellent dining experience. My only complaint on the entire dinner was the table was a little tight for five adults, but that is an odd number to seat.
Mothers Day was a great day and the restaurant was very accommodating of our party of 4 plus baby. I love good wines and was happy to get a nice French white, then wonderfully surprised to receive a small pour of an older vintage. Very patient and attentive serving staff and management, answered a lot of our questions regarding wine.
This was a birthday/ Mother's day gathering. Staff was very gracious in accommodating a late addition to the reservation for 4 and then the late arrival of 2 guests. I had the pork chop, which was cooked perfectly and seasoned beautifully. Every morsel was scrumptious. Of course the creme brulee was heavenly and just delicious. Everyone had the wine flights, and that always makes the evening fun. Our server was patient and had everything come out timely. Only criticism: the chicken tortilla soup was luke warm-and on a chilly damp night, this was sadly noticeable. Thank you for the signed birthday and Mother's day cards that were on the table when we arrived!
Food is great and waiter was terrific.....birthday celebration and without asking waiting game brought dessert with candle and sang happy birthday as well as a birthday card with all staff's signature of birthday wishes.....very very nice personal touch. I believe it enhanced the celebration for my birthday girl.
This is a very nice restaurant. It has a nice atmosphere and all of the staff is polite and inviting. The staff made us feel right at home for our anniversary. The food was excellent. I had the ribeye steak was cooked perfectly to medium rare. The Maryland crab stuffed squash was also very good, it was creamy but felt light because of the tempura coating. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Our server was outstanding! Had a pregnant lady in the group & he couldn't be more attentive to her needs- special non alcoholic drink. Food was delicious. Waiter was helpful w/decisions on the menu. Between 3 of us we had Brussels sprouts as an app. , soft shell crab sandwich, house burger and the mussels and all three of us enjoyed the entrees. Shared a strawberry rhubarb shortcake that was wonderful. Had peach Bellini alcohol & non alcohol that was perfect! Even bought a few bottles of wine to go. Highly recommend for any accasion . Such a cozy warm restaurant ( there on a damp rainy Saturday)
Since they opened, I have eaten at the Iron Bridge many times (and will continue to do so). However, this was the worst experience that I have had. The service was slow; and they were out of the beef short ribs and the quail. I would have left, but it was late and I was hungry. They can do much better; I hope that this was a learning experience and they will take the steps to improve!
I live within 5 miles of Iron Bridge but don;t go often enough! It has wonderful food and wine and I have never been disappointed! it's a little pricy fo a senior but well worth it for a special occasion. On this recent trip we had brussell sprouts for a starter that were amazing! I can never make them at home again!
Matt was fantastic. I arrived around 4pm after having an awful day. I couldn't decide what I wanted for the longest time and finally settled on a hazelnut latte and a chocolate-bottom creme brulee. It made everything better. Thanks, Iron Bridge, you're all lifesavers!
Fantastic restaurant in Columbia, M.D.. Monday is Steak night including souip or salad and choice of 3 different prepared steaks. Tonight's cream of Tomato Soup was wonderful as was the Pan seared coulotte strakvwith parmesan grits, baby spinach, forest mushrooms, smoked pearls onions, and zesty steak sauce! Service was outstanding as usual. Waitress very pleasant and appropriately checking in. Love everything about this place!
One of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Love this place! I make a point to visit st least twice a year when I come up from Fla. Interesting menu with a great selection of wine that is available along the wall. Pick a bottle and bring it over to the table. Do not miss the Iron Bridge.
We have always loved Iron Bridge and have had some amazing meals over the years. This past weekend we were with a group of 6 which I am sure is a challenge given the size of the restaurant. We were seated promptly at 8:15, the time of our reservation, and our server was quick to begin the ordering process. We felt rushed to order appetizers, which came out at record speed (which is awesome, but I wasn't sure how it was prepared so fast!) Once the appetizers were served, our server was immediately upon us to order. We asked for him to come back, which he did, 2 times before we were ready to order. The food unfortunately, was not up to Iron Bridge standards, and we were disappointed. The most disappointing feature was we felt rushed-spending an average of $28 to $32 on an entrée, with bottles of wine, should warrant the whole experience of food, friends and wine.
I rarely write reviews, but we were pretty bummed by our experience. A real shame. Iron Bridge you can do so much better.
Lovely wine bar-restaurant in an exurban setting. We were early, so seating was excellent and not too noisy, but may get a bit noisy later. Wine is expensive--they know their stuff, but you pay for that. A nice list of local bottled or canned beers helps out. The food is imaginative and generally quite good. Most portions are modest but sufficient, although the hamburger is gigantic with plenty of fries (at $18 it should be). All in all, a fine place for a special meal, if you don't mind paying for it.
Loved this place. Coworker and I went to celebrate administrative assistants week. Our server was excellent..wish I remembered his name. Very helpful choosing wine and food. We had ladies lunch food...quiche, shrimp salad sandwich...both with salads. Really very good! The Albarino was even better. Quaint, quiet, comfortable but classy and upgraded nice. I'll be back for a dinner!!
Iron Bridge has fantastic food and wines (which you can also pick from their wines racks)...but the service is what sets this place apart. Jonathan, our server, was beyond exceptional. Knew his wines and every recommendation was fantastic. The food (steaks all around) were made perfectly and served with taste/style. Always a fantastic experience @ Iron Bridge.
We finally tried this restaurant after driving past it for some time. We gambled on a Monday night, intimate Wedding Anniversary dinner for two. Boy.......we are so glad we did. The service was outstanding - our waitress Stacey(?) was attentive and charming / the service young man was very quick to ensure water was always filled, plates removed promptly, etc.; the meals were scrumptious and reasonably priced; coffee was superb (hot & fresh) AND.......the best creme brulee we have ever had!!! We will definitely be back......and soon. Well done, Iron Bridge.
We ate off the lunch menu special, very limited selection but portions are more size appropriate and a bit better dollar value. The wedge-type salad had an excellent stilton cheese-based vinigrette dressing. The crispy brussels sprouts were very good without the burned taste I've gotten at other places, although just a huge serving on a white plate; no garnish, sauce or anything else to make them more interesting. A little more attention to the art of presentation would have made a lot of points. We skipped this place for a while because the mussels were so tiny and tasteless they weren't worth the effort (supplier issues?). This time the mussels were wonderful, medium-sized and tender in a lovely sauce. I usually ignore the toasted bread crisps but put mine to good use getting every last bit of sauce. We enjoyed the "daily" wine flight. They've enlarged/improved the kitchen, repainted this side of the dining room, added a little art, removed the art deco table in the room with the fireplace. Lunch was at a later hour so it was quiet but I imagine it could be quite noisy when filled. Their version of creme brulee is a guilty pleasure I look forward to splitting with a friend.
