By far the best brunch I have ever had. Every single dish was amazing.
If this review was just about food, I'd give it a 3.5. Food was pretty good, no complaints,  but nothing to rave about. The service was as absolutely horrible. The servers were rude. They had originally put us in the back of the restaurant. When I asked if we could sit in the seats in the front, which were totally empty, our server said sarcastically "I guess". I won't assume why they didn't place us there to begin with, but suffice to say I definitely won't return.
Came here for my boyfriends 30th birthday aka very special occasion. The ambience is so beautiful, an escape from the business of the city, tucked behind a historic building. There are indeed iron gates which make it all the more romantic . The back area is covered with ivy in a trellis and globe lights. The offer blankets for a chilly  evening. The menu was  balanced and the hardest part was deciding. Luckily our server helped us a lot and gave options. We settled on the Iron gate mixed grill which on our evening was 4 different cooks of lamb and a perfectly pink hanger steak. We loved this main dish for 2. We also started with the gnocchi and harissa carrots, upon recommendation of our sever. Wow exciting carrots do exist! We finished the gnocchi and resisted licking the plate. Best I've ever had! Though we were too stuffed to order desert (those yeast donuts were calling our names though), and also had birthday cake at home, our server heard us toast, and brought out a comped birthday desert with a candle! There was evening a chocolate plate that said "happy birthday". This is truly a gem and priced right to boot. Hope to return soon!
