Icon Grill - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
The quality of the food has gone down pretty dramatically since I was last there - about 18 months. I was very excited to be going because I knew things would be awesome, and then they just weren't. I'll give the Icon Grill one more shot and hope it was an off night. But if I have the same experience again I'll have to cross the Icon off my list.
Icon Grill is decorated so beautifully for Christmas, they have a piano player playing Christmas songs, and a fun Christmas menu. Our family had delicious food, great service, and a lovely night. We love Icon Grill. The Crab Risotto was delicious! The decorate your own cookie dessert was fun for our kids, but the cookies were a little stale.
The best: from the Pear Salad to the Seared Tuna to the Crab cakes and the ambiance. We have had all 3 other places but ICON's preparation set a new bench mark. In 1 word: WOW.
And the surroundings were very whimsical and helped keep the noise level down. We will definitely return.
The room was very warm and inviting and we loved the decor. I had the Blu Cheese Tenderloin Medallions, two pieces were overcooked, they did offer to redo but half was cooked correctly so just ate that portion. My companion had the halibut wrapped in potato, they serve a nice sized portion and the outside with the potato was very nice, but after that it was very bland. They did offer a dessert to make up for the steak and the Green Apple pie was wonderful. I would warrant a second try
The reservations worked out great. Our table was ready and the hostess was very pleasant. Unfortunately, the table we were sat at was located on the edge of the stairs leading to the bar, sandwiched between the waitstaff station and another table. This provided a very unpleasant seating arrangement, when my husband mentioned this to the waiter, he said it was the best seat in the house. We waited for drinks, and actually got up and took one of the bread baskets off the counter, since we had been waiting for the waiter to return. We did appreciate the fact that when my husband ordered the spicy penne dish, the chef did take that off our bill since it was too hot for anyone to eat. We will probably decide to go somewhere else next time.
This was our second time at Icon Grill. Again, the food was excellent, the service was great and the atmosphere uniquely pleasing. We dropped them a note via OpenTable advising that we had one vegan in the group and not only did they properly communicate this to the server, they ensured that she was well taken care of. Well done. Thank you. We will definitely return.
Absolutely Fabulous dining experience. The ambiance was warm, inviting and the walls were adorn with the work of local artists. the food was thoughtfully presented and delicious. The wait staff was friendly and accomodating. We thoroughly enjoyed this culinary adventure.
meatloaf with a molasses sauce. The sauce was overpowering, tasted like barbecue sauce out of a bottle. No hint of the bitter edge of molasses, so sugary and thick my lips stuck together from the sauce.
Pear salad was excellent.
Brocoli was cooked just right - a little past al dente, but ruined by swimming in the meatloaf sauce
I went in to support restaurant week, but ended up ordering a shrimp & avocado salad. The salad was fresh, unique and very tasty. The restaurant week menu looked fabulous, just too much food for me to eat. I would recommend a menu option without dessert-possibly offer a coffee with a small sweet bite instead. Right now the only draw back is the building repair which is outside Icon's control.
This is the third time I've been here. The first two were average, but the ambiance is amazing so I keep hoping it'll get better. This time, we had slow service until we complained. The "famous" mac & cheese, was dry if their signature dish, not worth ordering. My beef tenderloins were good. Everything else, salads, etc. were average. That said, I'm telling my friends to go there for drinks for the atmosphere, but not to bother having dinner.
Disappointing experience given the reviews. The room has a tired moldy feel to it and the menu can best be described as boring. The specials were tried by two members of our party and was lamb shank. It was found to bee overly salty and a weak dish with bland sides. Being in Seattle one of our party had the king salmon which was over cooked. All in all there are far better choices in the Seattle area for a meal in this area and price range
I must have gone to a different Icon Grill based on these other reviews.
First I must say I understand people work hard in this industry and it is hard to criticize them for this. With that said, I too work hard and don't like having buyer's remorse when the bill arrives.
The food is a step above Applebees. $14 for a bowl of their Mac'n Cheese that is supposed to be amazing is amazingly not worth it. Perhaps we got a bad bowl but it was nothing to write home about. (Go to Beecher's, it is much better).
The place is knicknacky and outdated. Service was ehh, nothing special.
Basically it was a disappointment in the fact the food just wasn't worth the time or money we spent there.
Perhaps this place was Iconic back 93?!
This was my first time eating at Icon Grill and I would highly recommend it. I was looking for a trendy but casual downtown restaurant, not too pricey, to have lunch with my hubby and his parents while we were doing some sightseeing on a rainy day. The decor, food and service were all excellent. We were in and out in less than an hour - and we enjoyed a leisurely pace. We ordered from the lunch special menu, 9 choices for $9.99 and the waiter allowed us to make a few substitutions. I had the Smoked Chicken and Brie sandwich with a small Grill Pear Salad. So delicious and beautiful presentation! They honor the PassPort Dining card which is what lead me there. We'll be back!
We were there for Sunday lunch. The place was not crowded, so it was very quiet. The Icon Grill has a very good and welcoming ambiance. I love the glass works found everywhere. It makes for interesting conversation. Our food was very delicious with generous portions. Our waiter was quite a character and gave us a few good laughs. Great value for your dollar.
My wife and I love going to the Icon every time we visit Seattle. While the menu features many items that are standard fare in a typical northwest restaurant, I particularly enjoy the "hearty fare" section of the dinner menu--the "molasses glazed meatloaf" is one of my personal favorites. Also, the "fried macaroni and cheese" appetizer is something you should try at least once.
The decor is funky and chic, but very comfortable. The wait staff is professional and courteous, and always seem to anticipate our needs. That being said, I would recommend allocating at least 90 minutes for dinner on busy weekend evenings.
We really enjoy this restaurant, and recommend it to all our friends.
I took one of my good friends here for his birthday dinner. We started in the bar, to take advantage of their happy hour selection, then moved into the restaurant. The food was fresh and well seasoned. Portions were ample. Service was attentive and friendly. A very nice night out.
