    Great spot to hang out with your friends, eat, drink and dance. Friday & Saturday night are the best, where you can burn the calories dancing after eating. The food is great and the drinks too.

    We had a fun time celebrating our birthdays here! Waiters were polite and all staff in general were nice, great Latin music to dance, a bit expensive cocktails but there's always happy hour

    a beautiful space and BIG (3floors) and everyone dances! Few wall flowers- only to wait their turns or taking a break. Beginners, dont fret. Everyone is so nice and just wants to dance the night away!

    Iguana's was truly an experience. The music was amazing, the drinks were fairly priced, and the crowd was enjoyable. I would recommend this place for dancing, having fun and relaxing.

    A bit more attentiveness would be nice but otherwise food is good (like it that not every dish is drenched in cheese) and price is reasonable considering the location. Very happening in the evening.

    come during happy hour for half priced drinks. The food was good but definitely not worth the price for just apps and drinks. Very small quesadilla for $16!

    Good food but the service is HORRIBLE. Waiters never come by. Often they don't have thugs on the menu (like black beans?!?) or they forget to make one of your entrees.

    It's your own damn fault for coming to a "Mexican" restaurant in midtown. Did you really expect the bouncer to not classless-ly and tastelessly judge you on what you were wearing?
