Love to come to the bay area (not for the traffice) but for dinner at the Iron Gate. The food is amazing and the service is amazing as well. This place never disappoints

This is a wonderful up scale restaurant. The food is always good. The ingredients are fresh and seasonal. I love the way they combine the ingredients in their salads. The dressings are always good. If you have room get one of their souffl'es at the end. The service is good. They have some table side service, which is always fun... More

The Iron Gate is a welcome retreat to an early time offering Cesar Salads prepared at your table complete with egg and anchovies. They offer a wide variety of traditional meals including the flaming dishes of yesterday - Steak Diane, Bananas Foster, and Cherries Jubilee - all for a very reasonable price.

If you have ever driven by the Iron Gate in Belmont, you would never know what an outstanding restaurant this is. The outside of the building, with a brick exterior is not at all indicative of the interior. The Iron Gate is a classy place, serves excellent food and the service is experienced and dedicated. The menu ranges from Italian... More

The Iron Gate has been a mainstay in Belmont for decades. It is a throwback to the 1950s in its atmosphere, servers and high quality menu and choices.

The menu had wonderful selections and it was hard to choose. The gnocchi with gorgonzola was excellent as were other pastas we had. The flame grilled steak was delicious (I... More

We were there on a weeknight for a birthday dinner with friends and service and food were excellent. The seafood special was salmon with a piccata sauce and it was delicious. Some flamb'e items are prepared table side on a cart. Iron Gate has always been a go to place for an upscale meal.

When was the last time you dined in a restaurant where the waiters wore white glove, didn't introduce themselves or call you by your first name-if these are pluses, then the Irongate is the restaurant for you. In addition the food is excellent. The roast beef is served perfectly and the side dishes enough for the entire table. The noise... More
