Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed our Seattle Restaurant week experience. The squash soup was really delicious, as were the fried chicken (boneless!) and lamb chops. Would have liked to see more veggies on the plate (3 broccoli florets can hardly be called a serving) though. Desserts were yummy too - hot fudge sundae, with a variety of toppings offered and strawberry rhubarb crisp was just-right sweet. Very cool environment, with lots to look at! "

  • "This was my third visit to Icon Grill and it continues to get better each time I go. First (for lunch) and second (for dinner) times I struggled to choose something from the menu I forget what I eventually ordered by I remember it was good, not fantastic. The ambiance is subdued, but I much prefer that over something noisy. We sat at a 4 top for dinner and it was very easy to converse and stay focused on the company and share the TOTALLY AWESOME ICE CREAM SUNDAE. The last time was the best by far. Ordered off the SEattle Restaurant Week menu - prix fix asparagus appetizer, flank steak dinner, and choc cake for dessert. Delicious! The interior is also dark so keep that in mind on a sunny day."

  • "Have always wanted to try this restaurant. Went few weeks back thinking it was Restaurant Week, but discovered we were a week early. Even still we of course decided to stay with an excuse to come back very soon ... Which we did second week of promo. Both times the atmosphere was pleasant, ambiance here is wonderful giving the place a great old-time feel. Food was fantastic, everything we tried was delicious and presented in a striking fashion. Would love to reserve their upstairs banquet room for a group. Highly Recommend!!!"

  • "Went there for restaurant week but found out they did not start until that evening. So settled on a crabcake benedict. The potatoes were good and crisp however the benedict was not so good. it was way too wet so it became mushy. Not sure how their evening dinner would fare but would think twice about going back due to so many other options in Seattle."

  • "We had an enjoyable evening out in downtown Seattle. The food was good, the server was friendly, and it was a relaxing evening. The only problem was that one person in our little party ordered one of the off menu special items. When it came it was not the same as had been described to us. They had changed from a red potato flat mix (or something like that) to just plai mashed potatoes. But the waiter did not come back to the table and say that or did he make mention of it until it was pointed out to him. Then he said he would check. He came back and said he would take the meal back but we said no. It took about ten minutes before he actually brought the correct potatoes to the table."

  • "I have been eating at Icon Grill for about 15 years, mostly for special occasions because it has the feel of being special. The glass hanging in nets, the fun art on the walls, the wonderful service... It's all about the little things and they add up here. The food is a tradition for me, with the butternut squash soup, scallop dinner, and hot fudge sundae is out of control. Love them"

  • "We had a lovely and tasty lunch. The Restaurant Week lunch menu was wonderful. I reserved online, which was so nice to be able to do from work. It was my boyfriend's birthday and they brought out a candle on his dessert. I loved how understated and tactful the birthday part was."

  • "My husband and I have had many a meal and/or happy hour at the Icon Grill - and have always been happy with the service. The night of the 5th we are very unhappy with the service. The waiter was a quite chatty and a poor listener. When asked if the Grilled Pear Salad was considered an entree, he was flippant and vaguely answered the question. I repeated the question - and received the same response. We have a Passport Dining card - and I wanted to verify if the salad was considered an entree. When our bill was presented to us - while two of us were still eating dinner - we were informed that the salad was an entree. Not happy!! The manager, Chris, made the situation better; the waiter apologized for this behavior and miscommunication."

  • "The ambience here is wonderful the place has a great feel and the bottle cap artwork was awesome. The food however was not worth the price. I was there for dine around seattle so the cost may have been different than normal. I would try again on a normal night before giving up on Icon as overpriced."

  • "The food was good, but the service was so bad that at one point another server stopped by our table and asked if we had been helped yet. For a romantic night out with my wife, this was not a good choice of restaurants. It also was so loud that it was difficult to hear one another without talking at the top of our voices."

  • "I have been eating at Icon for years. Before this visit, my boyfriend and I had less than satisfactory service during 'dessert happy hour.' Drinks were bad, service was poor. But I have to say - this visit re-affirmed by love of the Icon. Service was accommodating to our time constraints, food tasted great, and everything went as planned! Thanks for another amazing meal!"

  • "Icon has been a staple in the Seattle food scene for many years. I started going here in the late 90's and have always loved their Mac n' Cheese. The menu has changed some over the years but what remains constant is the abundance of comfort foods on the menu like the Mac n' Cheese (several varieties), bacon wrapped meatloaf, homemade tater-tots, crab risotto...okay maybe that last one isn't what most people would classify as comfort food but they mix Northwest cuisine with simply tasty preparations and combine for fun meals, in a colorful and lively space. Their bar has more dining spaces that stools at the bar but their drink menu is outstanding. It isn't on the menu but order a Greek Lost in Paris."

  • "Fairly stuck up attitude with most of the staff and patrons. Started with the host telling my reservation was 30 mins before and then making me feel stupid til he found it. We were seated(shoved in a crowded corner) next to a party of 4. We asked the server about the lounge menu and we were frowned upon for it. He still accommodated the request. Once our food came the group next to us were fairly stuck up towards what we ordered. They made a few snide remarks....yet proceeded to talk about the human centipede. I can almost guarantee that I work harder for my money and decided to spend it there....to get looked down on."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The service was a little slow but we did get there just before the lunchtime rush do that is a little understandable. The Mac and Cheese was a bit bland but the dipping sauce was good and so was the texture. I would have skipped right over the Tater Tots on the menu but was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and texture. They were great and so was the dipping sauce. The flavor of the sole was good but there was a tad to many lemon wedges on top and the panko was a bit thick. The mashed potatoes were not hot either. The Tagliatelle was pretty bland and uninspiring. Both the cream puff and the mango sorbet were delicious. The blood orange sauce with the sorbet was a good touch. I was a little disappointed that they didn't address the"

  • "We went here for brunch after a run downtown. There we eight people in our party and they accommodated us well. We were excited about the $5 Mary's and the food options were great. The service was VERY slow! I assume they were understaffed because the restaurant was not that busy (there were many empty tables). I will go back!"

  • "The food was delicious. The crab cakes and the prawns were amazing! The server was pleasant but slow. Not sure what was taking so long to get our food, but it felt like a long time."

  • "We thought the meatloaf sauce too spicy and too much for meal, the penne was too spicy and the salad with oil too slimmy. Actually the meal was good but not the best I have had. Mac and Cheese wonderful, salmon was wonderful. Service was 10 star. EXCELLENT."

There was really neat blown glass all over the restaurant as well as artwork all over the walls. It was recommended to us and we will definitely be recommending it to our friends."

  • "Icon Grill is one of my favorite downtown restaurants. It's special, but funky at the same time. The decor is a mix between various decades. The lighting is dim, but not too dim, but the best part is the menu and the food. One of us had a ribeye steak, done to perfection, and the other had the sole which was delicious, but a tad too buttery. The mashed potatos were so fresh, it was like they mashed them just for us. Oh, the house salad of mixed greens with pears and walnuts was also tasty. Last, but not least, the service was impeccable. The waiter was attentive, but not annoying. We'll be back for sure."

Everyone, from my mother to my young daughter enjoyed their food. And the ambiance was wonderful. The artwork is very unique and I understand it changes monthly. I would definitely go back for lunch or dinner. But all in all, we were very happy with our experience there."

  • "Gorgeous eclectic hodgepodge of beautiful scenery. FriedMacaroni&Cheese-tasted frozen boxy,CrabCakePotatoSkins - potatoes seemed very old, too much breading on the crab cakes, was any crab there?Crispy Fish Sliders-too much bread, very little pieces of fish and should have had maybe a lemon aioli rather than tartar sauce. None of it was tasty at all. BloodyMary was awful,weird flavor??? maybe too much horseradish or worchestershire, sent it back for more tomato juice but still wasn't good. Margarita tasted like made with the rinds of the lime, very bitter, sent back requesting more triple sec and was a bit better when returned. TexasFuneralFudgeCake-a bit dry, would have been better if served slightly warm with vanilla ice cream. Very sad!"

  • "This was our second time at the Icon Grill. The service was excellent and the decor lots of fun. We started our evening in the lounge. Cocktails were very good and a generous pour. Dinner in the dining room was 50/50. My husband had the Halibut which was very good, although a little dry. I had the roasted Prime Rib which was not very good. For one thing, I think it wasn't fresh. In fact, I was so suspicious that I turned the steak over and sure enough it had been put on the hot top before it was served. I should have sent it back, but we were having so much fun with our waiter I let it go. Our first experience at the Icon was great and everybody can have an off night, but the food needs to be better for us to be regulars."

  • "We had a party of 4 for dinner. We arrived a little early but were seated with no problem. Our waitress was not overly chatty which we appreciated. I had the sole, which was served at a perfect tempreture and was prepared beautifully. Each of the 4 entrees were great on presentation and flavor. We could easily talk as the noise level was reasonable. All in all a very nice dinning expereince."
