About Iris Restaurant
Iris is a contempary British restaurant located in the heart of Wakefield city centre, close to the cathedral and the Bull Ring fountains. Set up by chef Liam Duffy in 2012 the 50 cover restaurant was refurbished to create a modern dining experience.
We could not fault anything about our visit, the stars reflect our enjoyment, we will certainly visit again. this was the first time that we have dined at lunch time, we have eaten before but it as been on an evening.
The service could always improve here but it doesn't stop me going. Simple things like taking note of each person's order so you don't have to ask when it is served. We did book online, forgetting the special note section, and when I asked for a table downstairs as my husband had an injured foot, I was immediately told no and that I should have put it on the form. I agree in hindsight I should have done however I feel more could have been done to assist, or explain why another table could not be moved. It was also dark in the corner upstairs...difficult to read the menu
Beautiful food but a lot had nuts in, but this was highlighted to me and alterations offered. Definitely will go again
Fantastic value for money on the early bird menu. The food exceeded our expectations. We will definitely book again.
Fantastic night, the food was excellent and the service was great, would recommend Iris to anyone who like good food and good service. Thank you all for a great night.
Have visited many times. Always had great service and lovely food. This was no exception. Friendly young staff. Nice atmosphere.
We had an amazing meal... the food was fantastic especially the belly pork. What made the experience enjoyable was also the way you effortlessly catered gluten free dishes. I had a choice of virtually anything which was so refreshing and unusual... and it wasn’t just fruit salad or chocolate brownie for dessert!! (The trifle was delicious). We love your restaurant and have always had fantastic food. Thank you
Excellent service and lovely food. Restaurant tables and decor starting to look a bit distressed though! Time to redecorate?
Excellent service and the meal was excellent will defiantly be going again.
Plates stone cold meaning starter was cold (and undercooked). Main course was lovely though! The atmoshere was lacking due to our large party being the only one upstairs so it felt like being in someone’s front room. It was also quite cold as there’d not been any heating on.
Beautiful meal as usual just feel let down by the Christmas pudding,looked and tasted shop bought.also not sure about serving a lady with a pint glass for her cider .
Good value meal
Excellent food and a great experience
Lovely meal x nice place x v polite and friendly waiting staff x 👍
A lovely meal,good service and very nice evening
Chose Iris on a whim while spending a night in Wakefield. Could not have been happier. Everything we ordered was a delicious example of great British cooking. The pigs ears snack was amazing! As we dined with two children we booked an early table which meant we could order from the early bird menu. Absolutely fantastic value. Staff were very accommodating with the children and offered half portions from the menu. What the waiting staff lacked in expertise they more than made up for by being warm, welcoming and helpful. My only gripe is that this restaurant is too far from my home... if it was at the end of my road I'd go every week.
I’ve marked you down for atmosphere as there was a very loud group in at the same time which made conversation almost impossible. We were also seated closest to the door and people from the group were often going in and out so there were frequent changes of temperature. Otherwise the food was excellent and we would definitely recommend and come again
The food was delicious. The atmosphere always feels quite bland. The waiting team weren’t particularly attentive
Lovely food and drink, very quiet on a Thursday lunchtime but suited us as we had lots to chat about
Excellent & good quality food
Always enjoy it when we go
Excellent food. Premises are not easy to spot.
Although the food was lovely there was no salt n pepper on the table and we weren’t offered any condiments.
Fabulous food and drink, highly recommended
