Great first visit – We recently went to eat at The Yellow Porch but didn't have a reservation and they were full, they ask if we would like for them to call Wild Iris and see if they had room. The only room at Wild Iris was at the bar so they saved us two seats.
We had been wanting to eat at Wild Iris for sometime but don't get to Brentwood very often but we had a great time! From the first course thru dessert was fantastic!! Will definately be back and will probably sit at the bar, very cozy and a great bartender!
Okay, for Brentwood – If you find yourself in Brentwood and crave something fresh and healthy, this place is pretty good.
Jeckyll & Hyde – I've been several times during lunch—sometimes the restaurant was packed and we sat at the bar, other times it was strangely empty in the middle of the typical lunch. Almost every time (with the exception of the bar experiences)—we've been relatively ignored by our server. Food has come out at different times, or things were forgotten, drinks ignored, etc.
Good service should come standard with any restaurant experience—pricey or not. We finally just quit going and began choosing other options in the Brentwood area. If you do want to support the owners—try Yellow Porch in 100 Oaks. It's far superior.
great for business lunch – We eat lunch at Wild Iris at least once a month for business. The lunch menu is well-priced (around $10) and the food is excellent. We've always had good service. The dinner menu is more expensive.
To refer to the other reviews in this thread - it's not Applebee's. You won't enjoy dining at Wild Iris if you prefer large chain restaurants. There are no booths. It's a small independent restaurant. That said, the portions are not tiny. We generally have take-home boxes in our hands when we leave.
If you've heard of aoili or chutney, or if you like to try new foods, you'll like Wild Iris. Try the smoked turkey sandwich with mango chutney as a wrap.
Very nice! – In town on business and hotel recommended this restaurant last night Wow! Every course was delicious, especially the shark, definately fresh! Server was very helpful in wine selection and pairing with food. Will be back! Thanks
Over-rated, over-priced and over-hyped – Took our son to the Wild Iris at his request for his birthday, I won't be back...birthday or no birthday. Not impressed with the wine list so we did not partake. Food was O-K...thats all, portions were small
("pretty-food") and prices were high. I think people go there so they can say they went, or they go there to be seen because of its "trendy" social status.
Not impressed, won't be back
I'm Confused.. – At all the positive ratings this place has received. Nice wine list and local microbrews on tap, but the food and service would get an Applebees manager fired. The only thing I can possibly come up with is that there are few local eateries to compare it to.
Took my family there last weekend: The service was poor and inattentive, the appetizers and entrees were either cold and undercooked or dry and overcooked. The manager/owner was rude.
Enough said. We won?t be back.
over rated, under served and over charged – The issue and salvation of this place is one in the same. There are only 1 or 2 good restaurants in Brentwood, so Wild Iris has been able to make it because of the lack of competetion. The food is okay nothing to write about, the wine selction is plentiful. The issue is the prices are out of range for where they should be. The sevice is pretty decent, but the menu is not exciting, nor is the food anything you can't create at home. With fuel pricing rising and the economy slowing how long can an okay restaurant stay in business??
I would rather see Wid Iris bump the effort than bump off the restaurant scene.
Dissapointed as well as dissatisfied – I work nearby this establishment and often drive by. I always wanted to visit but, now that I have, I wished I had just kept on "driving by". It's too conjested for starters. My wife and I either felt like we were on display or we were in the way of everyone. Our service was mediocre. The gentleman serving us was a little to interested in "visiting" one of his other tables than taking quality care of us as well. The wine list was commendable, though. It was quite a nice selection. The prices were a little out of the range they should have been and, I have no dilemma paying for quality. My wife had a linguini dish that was tasty and she enjoyed it. I ordered the special however, and it was bland and not quite "special". Basically, I would not endorse this place.
Disappointing – I too thought I would give this restaurant a try after reading some great reviews. I will not be going back. Our service was TERRIBLE and the food was just ok and took a really long time. It was a Tuesday night, not crowded at all. It may have been just an off night, but nothing I saw there even remotely makes me want to give it a second chance.
