    The Icon Grill is a real gem. What a find. We had never been there before but are sure glad we made the discovery. The squash soup was superb and the roasted pear salad was a real treat. Great pizza, meatloaf, and mac and cheese. You can tell only fresh ingredients are used. Atmosphere is whimsical and delightful and the service is gracious. Definitely a place to go when you want a home cooked meal with a twist.

    We took my parents to Icon Grill for dinner when they were visiting Seattle. It's always a great place for out-of-town visitors - the food is wonderful and the restaurant itself is classy but not too formal. If you can, save room for dessert and order the ice cream sundae - people at the surrounding tables were envious.

    Though it's always a pleasure to visit the ICON, food this time was not as good as in the past. The asparagras appetizer was overly smoked, as if it was soaked in liquid smoke, and over-cooked. The top-serloin steak was not available. All else was good.

    Icon Grill has great food, sophisticated choices for the adults and simple ones for the kids. Everything was perfectly prepared with delicious takes on familiar dishes and the wines by the glass were fantastic. It isn't easy to find a restaurant where everyone in the family is happy with the food, the Icon Grill pulls it off in a beautifully artistic atmosphere. The service was attentive and quick, they helped us get to the theater on time.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 2/14/2009
    While the Icon Grill offered familiar comfort food, I challenged myself to eat something that I normally don't eat. I selected the Valentine's weekend only special crab risotto. It was delicious and flavorful. For someone who likes white wine but can't ever decided, they offered a tier of three small wine glasses called wine flights. I chose the white wine flight. It gave me a chance to sample three great wines. Finally, the desserts were way over the top, maybe to match the quirky decor. My apple pie was delicious, but the portion was huge so I took it to go.

We had a great cheesecake for dessert. We shared it and even then it was more than enough. Would definitely go back again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/12/2009
    our dining experience overall was pretty good. Our server was very laid-back, yet attentative. When asked about his opinion or suggestions, he offered them quickly and sincerely, we ended up going with what he thought (which is where we were leaning anyways) and it was money! My steak was perfect (bloody), the butternut squash soup was amazing, and the grilled pear salad was to die for. I did think the salad and soup were over-priced for the quantity....bigger salad and bigger bowl-gripe solved. I wasn't too big of a fan of the decor....the glass and art was cool, but the poster looking pieces and a lot of nick nacks need to go....it's a great space and if it weren't overdone it would be much more aesthetically pleasing~

I would recommend the Icon to anyone who has well behaved children that can respect that the majority of the restaurant patrons are adults. It is family friendly, with a welcoming atmosphere and menu selections for everyone. And need I mention the yummy and fun desserts! Kids were able to decorate their own cookies to finish off the night. We will definitely choose Icon for our family when eating out in Seattle

Great variety of menu, lots to chose from and lots of variety of options. The food took over an hour to get to our table, which put us very close to being late to a show we had tickets for, and we had allowed for two hours. When twe expressed concern about it becoming late, our waitress was less than concerned herself. Would probably go back, but might chose another place when we have plans that follow dinner.
