Way too expensive for what it is. Have been disappointed at the price a number of time now and won't be back. Adding large service charges and inviting you to remove them is a disgusting way to take more money and pretend you agreed it because of their amazing (which it isn't service).

Really enjoyed it. Lovely food. Lovely wine. Not cheap but not extortionate and a gorgeous environment.

Overall deserved 5-star although service a little slow probably because we arrived at 3.45pm. One reason for being slow initially was that the white wine we ordered was not cool so they hunted out a substitute - good. I would like a wider selection of more affordable wines. We were near a loud table of long launchers - not bad enough to ask to be moved, but hence the noise level. The Tapa was excellent; London prices, but you know that when you book.

food was just ok and patatas bravas were raw (literally). I made an especial request for quiet table and they put me on the middle of the aisle so I had to ask for another table, it is annoying when you request this in advance cause you are bringing an important client.

Terrible food. Lamb chops inedible. Managers excuse was they were supposed to be like that. Raw fat ? Really? Avoid.

I would definitely recommend Iberica. The staff was very kind, and the service ran smooth.
I took a vegetarian person, and she was surprised to taste food she never tried before. The menu is tidy and concise. The desserts are original and unique. The wine list is extensive.
Definitely a fun and satisfying dinner experience. Do not visit on a budget.

Unfortunately the food was cold when it arrived. One of my colleagues also didn’t receive his order until the rest of us had finished. To be fair, the waitress was apologetic but if you’re going to spend over £200 on a meal you expect better.

Great food - octopus was excellent - and ambience, service was (unusually for this place) relatively abrupt and less friendly than usual. Still a great reliable place though

Great food and attentive staff. Excellent drinks selection and nice explanation of dishes. We ordered tapas and everything was tasty and authentic. Second drink was little slow coming but the manager instantly made it complimentary which shows they really care about their levels of service. Would go again

Great food, but a little pricey for Tapas.
Lovely setting.
Slightly impatient serving staff, but meet and greet was wonderful.
The staff are clearly working hard, and doing their best.
6 of us attended, 5 said they wouldn't return (although I would!)

Great food, especially the asparagus toast. Booked restaurant but too noisy to hear other speak so ended up in bar. Great Portland St one much better for environment and service.

I have lunch here three or four times a month. The staff are fantastic and the food is great, although occasionally there are items listed on the menu that are not available. Also I wish they would bring back their ham and eggs ...

Food felt overpriced for the quality and taste. Service took forever (they were quite full, but still). Drink orders took over 30 mins to arrive. Very loud, difficult to hear each other. Love Iberica usually so this was a surprise.

The restaurant came recommended, but I probably wouldn't recommend it myself.
Left waiting at the door on arrival, once seated the waiter was helpful to suggest tapas items to order (all off the 'specials menu' that was the most expensive) also said the wine to order (turns out it was £55 and the most expensive on the menu).
Food was good, but the waitress always just brought out plates and never took the empty ones away, I had to pile them myself on a different table to make way for the new ones once they were shoved onto the table. Also never had our wine glasses topped up.

It was a client lunch for 4 people that was nice, but for £230 I definitely don't think i got value for money.
