Will never go back there. The service was arrogant and inattentive. It took my party of 7 over 45 minutes to receive what we had ordered. When the food arrived it was undercooked and cold. We couldn't even tell our waiter or the manager until they tried to clear our uneaten dishes because no one came to check on us. VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING. Will not recommend again to anyone.

I had a small get together for my birthday and heard from a few people that Iguana was a cool place. I will never go there again. We waited an hour for a quesadilla at the bar, and when we moved to a table in hopes that they would be more on top of things, I had to wave at the waiters to get a drink, after having been at the table for about 15 minutes! It also did not occur to the waiter to ask the four other people that were with me if they wanted a drink as well. Finally, when we were all done, I had to wave someone down again, because after they brought our food out, they never came to check on us again. I have been a server, and for the first time I didn't even want to leave a tip! The service was terrible! and the food could have been better. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!

After watching Color Purple, dining at Iguana's made for an excellent evening. The food was great, atmosphere nice due to not being very busy, value was great, but most of all the service was top notch. We had a waiter named "Jose", who was great. He made sure the food and drinks arrive with little delay and he was very attentive. It was a pleasure to eat at Iguana's and I will diffinitely dine there again, and hope Jose is the waiter.

Wanted to check the place out since the atmosphere was lively, big mistake. The only thing prompt was that they seated us immediately and got our drink orders. After that, it was downhill. Waiter disappeared and we were left to munch on dry chips and blah salsa. After an hour (no one bothered to check if we wanted to order more drinks) we had to hunt our waitress down...the manager was never even apologetic and we ended up leaving. Will never come back

i've watched and subsequently consumed a ton of table-side-prepared-guacamole in my day, but i swear to god this was the cream of the crop. the staff was SO sweet and helpful (i can be a total pain in the ass) and the restaurant itself was absolutely beautiful. i never knew that i could feel like i was on vacation while in midtown manhattan!

I eat here every time I come to NY and always look forward to it. The food and service have always been great. I have always been seated immediately. The staff is very attentive and the atmosphere is so relaxing. Seems more like a local place which makes it nice in a city filled with "tourist" restaurants. The guacamole prepared tableside is made to your taste and I absolutely have to have the pomegranate margarita when I go - I love the frozen one - my friend had hers on the rocks - both were dynamite! Our dinners were wonderful - make sure you try the cilantro mashed potatoes. We enjoyed a relaxing evening after a busy day in the city. What a treat!!

Iguana has a great selection of various flavors for margaritas and mojitos and the ambiance is very nice as well. However, the food was very very bland. It wasn't that it wasn't "hot" or spicy, it just had no flavor whatsoever, as though the food had been prepared without any seasonings at all. Go for the drinks and nothing else. The service was very good, waitstaff attentive, just bad food...
