    I really liked Icon Grill. Great place to go that's a little more upscale, but not pretentious. The menu has a lot to choose from, mostly focusing on comfort foods. You can go to this restaurant in either full opera attire, or jeans and t-shirt and feel comfortable.

    Dined on 4/5/2008
    We have been to the Icon Grill several times in the past and the food had always been very good and the service was typically good as well. Unfortunately, our last visit was not as enjoyable. My wife's steak was significantly overcooked and tough, and my tuna was also quite tough. Our waitress was friendly, but not very helpful. But given our past experience, we will give Icon another try down the road. It may have just been an off night.

    They called to confirm my dinner reservation within an hour of placing the reservation. I was very impressed. The wine flutes were a fun tasting option I do not see much that my family and I really enjoyed. The staff was very friendly and the food unique. I was not a fan of the spaghetti but my mom's is the best so I might be biased here. Other than that, it was a fun find. Cool decore, cool staff!

    We have been to the Icon before and had an incredible time. The food was excellent and the service was great. We revisited the Icon this weekend and unfortunately had a different experience. The service was extremely slow. We wouldnt see our waiter for over a half an hour sometimes. He was very cordial and humerous but we couldnt overlook the slow service. On top of that My sister and I had the flat iron steak and were not impressed. My brother in law didnt even finish his Fillet steak. I will definitely go back because I feel that this was an off night. At least we hope.

    Icon Grill has been and continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The service was outstanding, and the atmosphere always fun. As usual, my dinner (Cajun Rock Shrimp Penne) was delicious, but my date was not as impressed with his (Pork Chop). I love that Icon Grill celebrates Washington Wine Month with all bottles of Washington Wines at 1/2 price - it's a great way to try some amazing wine that you may not have otherwise been able to afford.

    I have been to Icon Grill several times for lunch and always been very pleased - highest rating for comfort food. However, Easter Brunch was a disappointment. There were only two things on the buffet that were really good - everything else was mediocre. The entree was overpriced for what we received. Will continue to go there for lunch. Will never go there for brunch.

    The food selection was good, tastey and met our dining needs. The March wine special was great. Our waiter Michael was awesome: informative,timely and accomodating to a few changes within our selections - a big plus. Only down-side: We had asked for booth in the reservation and didn't get one. The hostess was a bit off-putting and said that she couldn't hold one. A bit strange as we arrived exactly on time to our reservation.

    The three of us had a most enjoyable dinner. The service was excellent and the food was terrific. Two had the Halibut which was perfect and one was the Mac n Cheese which was also terrific but served a bit too cold (barely warm) as if it had been sitting for a while. Dessert was chocolate cake which was incredibly good served with about a third of a liter of cold milk.. Terrific presentation.

    Despite being very busy before a show at the Moore theater, the staff did a great job of keeping things moving without making us feel rushed. This was a return visit for me, and I've always enjoyed the quality and preparation of the food. The ambiance, however, is the real draw for me - unique is a word that shouldn't be qualified, so that's all I'll say. Unique!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/19/2008
    Everything was good until our waiter messed it all up. He served the Mac and Cheese - didn't ask first and poured the cheese all over it! All other waiters ask first! Then he got the kid's cheese burger wrong - burned and no cheese. Asked in the beginning if we wanted separate checks - which we did because I had to leave early. Then when I was running late (because the food took forever!) I handed him my credit card and he walked around with it and came back 10 minutes later and asked it I was paying for the whole table. I said "no, remember I have to leave early and we are getting separate checks?!". He just fell apart by the end. Didn't listen to anything we asked for. Nightmare. And food was only ok this time there.

    The challenge is the SLOW, terribly slow!, service. This is my third time at ICON in three months. Two lunch, one dinner. If you could improve your speed and attentiveness you'll grow your business. Other Seattle restaurants beat you here but the atmosphere is great; the food is good and reliable. It pleases out of town guests. For a business lunch though I have to budget 2 hours because of slow service. Most people don't have a 2 hour lunch luxury.

I ordered a piece of cake to take home and the waiter crammed the damn thing into a box the size of a peanut. Attention to detail par - food par....ambience - pretty good.
