Visited here twice this week, virtually the same experience both times. 20 minutes at the table without getting a drink. And if you want a refill forget it. Might as well shoot a flare off to try and get someone's attention. I ordered the filet I asked for it to be medium well and it came medium rare. Waitress took... More

Hi Jon I'm very sorry to hear of your experience at my restaurant last week and I appreciate you bringing the issues to my attention. That is not the norm at Irises, our servers and hosts are usually very attentive, friendly and timely. Obviously something went very wrong, and for that, I apologize. I plan on showing this review to... More

Irises was one of the few places serving meals on Thanksgiving Day. We were traveling from PA to NY for a mini vacation. The place was hopping but under control. Friendly people prepared our table, which was a romantic, nook in the front of the dining room, with a great view of the town. Our server was wonderful! Wish I... More

I had only my own Moules Frites and a glass of Champagne and i could have been in Cassis or Juan-lesPin! perfection. There might have been a splash of Pastis(?). Our hosts had seafood risotto and another had a chicken dish. They chose a bottle of red. Everyone was happy! The Music could have been a touch softer. but then... More

Awesome eats. Extensive martini list. I had the warm goat cheese salad and sesame encrusted Tuna....it was so good. Also the Risotto Balls and everything else we had on the table was excellent. Great place to bring your lady ...kinda dim lighting and quiet place. Great place we will be back. #BuddhaReview

We visited on a Thursday night and the restaurant seemed to be very busy with locals. We were visiting from out of town. My husband ordered the Hanger Steak, $22.00 and I ordered a pasta dish with artichokes, mushrooms and tomatoes to which I added shrimp for an extra $6, bringing my meal total to $21.99. We ordered the risotto... More

This was a tough call between rating a 3 or a 4. We explained to the server that we were in a rush, but a business party that arrived after us were served before us and the overall wait time was average at best. To be fair, the other table was ready with their order more quickly than we were.... More

We went to dinner recently with friends who love Iris's. We have eaten there before, and have had consistently good food. Last night I chose a dish that I thought would be delicious, but it was just OK. The vegetables were undercooked and had little taste and my meat was overcooked. I hope it was an off night for the...

Having special dietary needs is sometimes a challenge when dining out. Not at Irises. We had a large party for a family birthday and the staff was wonderful, food was excellent. Definitely will done at Irises again.

We have gone to Irises Cafe a few times and find that the dinner menu is much better than lunch. We were not happy with our lunch. Pricey and did not taste good. The dinners are great! Nice quaint restaurant. Great atmosphere
