Aged 8 oz choice filet. Choice of two sides. Choice of sauce: Remo or Horseradish Gorgonzola
Lightly fried calamari tossed with sweet and spicy roasted Spanish chilis with a chili garlic sauce
Organic chicken rolled with prosciutto & mozzarella, breaded and baked. Served over Alfredo rigatoni
The food was very good by Utica standards. The service was poor and perhaps very poor considering there was only three tables of six having dinner. We waited 90 minutes for the food to arrive. Wine list as weak as the service.
The restaurant is beautiful. Nice romantic place. The food was delicious and the hotel, Double tree by Hilton where the restaurant is located in was absolutely stunning. The prettiest hotel I have ever seen.
We waited 30 minutes between drinks, an hour for our actual food and then another 25 minutes for change from our bill. Food was very good but we will not be back because of the wait times.
Hello Michelle, Thank you for visiting Iconic. Our apologies for the slow service you experienced on your visit. Like all restaurants, we are experiencing staffing issues and while we are generally in good shape, we had a couple of key people missing that weekend. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and hope that you will reconsider your decision not to return. If you read through the reviews, you will see that your experience is not the norm for us.
The food was way overpriced for the overall quality. For instance, I ordered the calamari as an appetizer. The "calamari" consisted primarily of fried dough. Very little meat. Also, the salad I ordered was sub-par. Lastly, the service was terrible. I sat at the bar, and the servers and bar tenders all seemed overwhelmed.
Hello Tom, Our apologies for the disappointing dining experience. We are much better than that! Our calamari is one of our most popular dishes - it is not battered or breaded. We were provided a different brand last week that was not as good. It is unfortunate that you were not able to share your dissatisfaction with your server that evening - we would have loved to have offered you a different item. We do hope that you will try us again
The food was very good. Great experience
Delicious meal! Great atmosphere. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Manager is always making rounds and checking in. Our favorite date night spot.
We ate outside on the covered terrace. The service was great. It was warmed with gas heaters. They offered a couple specials at reasonable prices. I would have dinner there again.
Excellent service, great place very clean! Waitress on top of everything love it!
Tried their chicken this time. Much better. The drinks aren’t great. Ok for a average quick dining.
Steak was not good. Don’t suggest it. Could have had better at Texas Roadhouse. I will try again but maybe chicken.
The food and our server were amazing! Maureen was attentive and friendly. Never push but always ready and available when we wanted something from our 1st drink to our dessert order.
the greens and riggies where out of this world will be going back
Went here for my Anniversary, and glad we did. Food was all cooked to perfection and plated beautifully. I’m pretty sure everybody that was working on the floor welcomed us and wished us a Happy Anniversary, they even brought out a complimentary glass of champagne. I will come back again.
First class all the way here! Stunning restaurant with food that matches. Our servers were friendly and attentive,and the food was as good as any high end big city restaurant. If your looking for a great meal in a historic restaurant,here’s your spot.
We sat outside and the motorcycle noise was awful.
But the inside was very, very loud.
The food was good.
Food was delicious and the service was excellent
Had an amazing time here with a couple friends! The service, environment, and food was fantastic! Would definitely recommend the Utica greens and chicken riggies.
My filet was amazing but my husbands chicken although delicious was very heavy, both chicken options were very cheesy & saucy, maybe have one lower calorie chicken dish. Great service, not pushy but didn’t wait long for our food. Oh the calamari was amazing!! We’ll be back
Excellent food. We especially loved the bang bang cauliflower and Chicken Asiago.
This place is a gem in Utica!
WOW! This place was AWESOME!
I enjoyed my birthday dinner at this restaurant and I couldn’t have been more happy with my experience. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with amazing customer service. We also VERY much enjoyed our meals, the chefs were awesome. The sweet/ spicy sauce served with the calamari was OUT of this world. I also enjoyed a fudge-like desert (I’m not really sure of the name) but I’ll tell you that was the best desert I’ve ever had and I’m not even a sweets person!
Overall I HIGHLYYYYYY recommend and will definitely be back when I’m visiting Central NY again.
This place was spectacular! I had Went for my boyfriends 21st birthday this past weekend and everything was amazing. My boyfriend ordered white wine and was not the biggest fan of it and the bartender came and made him a shot and a special mixed drink. He loved the shot and kind of liked the mixed drink but not where he was fully drinking it and they took it off the check because he wasn’t completely satisfied. They sang happy birthday with a fantastic candle as well. Everything was amazing and I can’t wait to go back!
Maria was simply the best! Food was fantastic!
We were there to celebrate my stepdaughter’s college graduation and the girl of seated us asked if we wanted a kid’s menu for her!
We had the fried calamari for appetizer. It tasted good but was a little rubbery. The bread with the marinara dip was delicious!
My husband had the filet mignon with risotto and spinach, I had the haddock stuffed with crabmeat with risotto and my stepdaughter had the lobster ravioli. The filet was good but the risotto was bland. I think for an Italian restaurant, risotto should be impeccable. The haddock with crabmeat must have been frozen for a while because it didn’t taste fresh. You couldn’t tell if you were eating the haddock or the crabmeat if you had your eyes closed. Lobster ravioli was reportedly good. Will give them another try and choose something different from the menu. Or maybe the specials.
Good location in the hotel, and very accommodating since I needed to add people to the reservation at last minute. Food was well prepared and well portioned. Server was attentive. Only issue was the music was very loud. I asked that it be turned down so that we could have a conversation without having to talk loudly to each other.
Ambience, cocktails, service was great, food not so much.
Nice place in a Hilton Hotel. Great lobby and friendly staff. Awesome bar area and had derby night themed drinks offered the day we stopped by.
Very friendly staff food was great and very reasonable I will definitely go back
Rachel and the rest of the evening staff there are friendly, attentive, and great front of the house staff.
Quality has deteriorated since reopening.
Enjoyed our meal and experience. Chicken, pasta and vegetables were well-prepared. Ocean scallops special were fresh day boat, not over or undercooked, and creatively composed. Special instructions for kitchen were followed. We are NYC visitors taking our local college student out for a good meal. Iconic did not disappoint. Excellent service, cool bar room and dining area in historic hotel. High ceilings, spacious seating plan, and seriousness about sanitizing, all provide peace of mind for the Covid-concerned. Keep up the good work!
Thank you for choosing to dine at Iconic and for taking the time to share your perspective. We appreciate your patronage and your recognition of our efforts to provide an excellent (and safe) dining experience for our guests. We hope to see you again on future visits to Utica!
The food was spectacular!!!! The staff was welcoming, friendly and outgoing. It was a birthday dinner, and the staff signed a card and also sent a complimentary dessert with candles at the end of the meal. We had fantastic cutting edge cocktails in a gorgeous space. The vibe is old school elegance mixed with minimalism and black and white pictures. We had appetizers to dessert and everything was delicious. The dinner entree choices are varied and enticing. The food was hot, the presentation was beautiful and the portions were generous. We've recommended it to at least ten couples this week. We'll be back soon!!!
Thank you for choosing to dine at Iconic - we appreciate your patronage! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your dining experience with us. Thank you for recommending us to your friends! We look forward to your next visit

Chesterfields has always provided good food at a reasonable price and this location does not disappoint. The food and service was great and the atmosphere relaxed.
Food and service was amazing, my only complaint was we were by the window and were cold. But other than that highly recommend
Excellent food, good service, and nice atmosphere
Hosts are excellent. Food was very good.
Upstairs gym was a little noisy when they drop weights.
Well I’m not sure how it was, they were closed when we got there. Took the reservation but weren’t open. Sure would have been helpful to know that ahead of time...
Hello, our apologies for the misunderstanding. We were open for our regular hours on Dec 23, 2020 - it was our last night of operation due to the COVID surge that occurred after the holidays. We closed on 12/24/2020 out of concern for the safety of our staff and guests. We hope you can visit us again in the future, we will be reopening soon.
Restaurant was closed. We struggled getting same day reservations elsewhere. If manager called, must have been on a personal phone because I had no calls from the restaurant and my reservation was not cancelled on the app.
Thank you for considering Iconic for your NYE dinner. Our apologies on the Open Table error. A call was made from a private phone to cancel the reservations that were inadvertently available on Open Table. Messages were left wherever possible. Changes were made to Open Table but we forget to publish the changes - a second step in the change process. We closed on Christmas Eve for the safety of our staff and guests. We hope that you will be able to visit us in the future
Second time we made an open table reso and it was CLOSED.🤔
