    Food was excellent. Good choices on the menu. Wait staff very attentive and friendly. We had never been here before. The only confusing part was where to park and the entrance from the parking lot didn’t have a sign for the restaurant. We found our way. The dining area was very comfortable and decorated elegantly. Would definitely go again.

    Iconic by ChesterfieldResponded on June 18, 2022Thank you for choosing to dine with us! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your meals and look forward to seeing you again!

    My wife and I went on a random dinner date on a Saturday at 5pm. The hotel was hopping with a wedding and there was a party in a room off the restaurant. We were greeted by the bartender when we entered and the hostess quickly addressed us. We were then seated in the dining room at a window booth. Very comfortable seating and nice view of the park on the corner, were prom photos were being taken. Our waitress came and we ordered drinks. My wife tried the special of the night, a pineapple mojito, and I had the pomegranate martini. Hat's off to the bartender both for greeting us when we came in and the amazing drinks I should have photographed. We then ordered, when the delicious bread was delivered to the table. Both choosing the filet mignon. Hers with parmesan risotto, and mine with whipped mashed potatoes. Delicious, yummy, melting in your mouth. That is what we can say about the filet mignon. Overall service was good not great.

    I usually do not write reviews, however, this restaurant needs to do better. First of all, the service was unfortunately subpar. Our waitress was pleasant, but she lacked attention to detail. We rarely received waters, utensils, etc. In addition our food was horrific. The food was over cooked, lacked flavor, and the calamari seemed fake (like pig intestines)… Overall, not the best experience.

    Iconic by ChesterfieldResponded on June 18, 2022Thank you for visiting Iconic. A young girl with you told the server that she didn't like the squid and the server (who is excellent) offered to remake it or remove it from the bill. Squid is not for everyone. A gentleman at the table said that all was wonderful & there was no need. He also left a very large tip. I have reached out to you with no response. We are sorry that we could not resolve this differently. We would have preferred that you accepted our offer if you were dissatisfied.

We wish that you had informed your server regarding the food temp. Our policy is always to remake an item that is not satisfactory to the customer. Guest satisfaction is very important to us. Regarding food freshness - we receive 3 food shipments per week and all of our items are made to order. We hope you will try us again.

    We were a party of 11 and highly enjoyed the appetizers, dinner and dessert and fully expected to have a decent bill. What was very disappointing was our bar bill was nearly as much and the drinks were terrible! Highly recommend you upgrade your bartenders as it is equally important to have great cocktails as it is to have good food! We sent our drinks back several times. Very disappointing!

    I love the hotel Utica as a piece of Utica’s finest landmarks. Our friends joined us there for dinner and we had a couple of drinks at the bar prior to dinner. Our server was good but the food was a little less than desired apps (meatballs and greens) were a little off and everyone’s meal was okay except mine. I ordered the special Frutti d’mare with 2 mussels one large scallop and abt 5 smaller pieces and a few tiny rings of calamari in a bowl of wide flat pasta that was mostly stuck together for $40. I was appalled and said to take it off the bill that’s ridiculous. The server contacted the owner and she was not having it. Finally another server came over and talked about it and said she could take half off and even said it was ‘skimpy’ or didn’t ‘look too good’. I can’t fairly quote exact words but it was noticed. The servers managed on their own but really, someone should be there to handle situations similar to this and take responsibility. Sorry, I’ll stick to tavalo.

    Iconic by ChesterfieldResponded on March 11, 2022We are sorry that your meal did not meet your expectations. A positive guest experience is extremely important to us. It is always our policy to remake any dish that a customer is not satisfied with. It is not clear why your dish was not returned to the kitchen to be remade. This policy has been reinforced to the staff. We agree that someone should be there every day to handle these situations and are actively searching for a manager. Please contact me privately at restaurant for follow up.

    The dining room at the old Hotel Utica is beautiful. The Fiddlehead IPA was a nice find. Unfortunately that's where things lost their way. This review is from one experience, an early Saturday night. The room became quite busy. It was obvious the staff was overwhelmed and underprepared. There was no adult there leading them. Our waitress was very professional, but she was trying to direct traffic and do her job as well and simply wasn't able to overcome the odds. She stated there were only 2 waitresses for the entire room. The appetizer was an excellent calamari but covered with some sort of incendairy jalapino sauce, thank goodness for cold beer. My lump of bolognase was rescued by my wife's excellent sea bass. Absent from the entree were any form of accompanyments. A simple plate with some food, unfortunately served almost instantly after the appetizer arrived, despite us telling the waitress we were looking forward to relaxing and enjoying dinner. Again, this is based on one night, one time. Our waitress tried hard to make our meal as pleasant as possible, but the overall experience was mediocre at best. I felt bad for her. It's unfortunate when the best part of your dining experience is the room and the beer. I simply could not recommend this restaurant excepting for the architecture.

    Went there for sons birthday dinner and the restaurant was beautiful but the service wasn’t good. We had to remind them that we’re waiting for our table, took 20 minutes to get a menu and another 15 for drinks and we all ordered sodas. The food was delicious but extremely cold! We didn’t want to wait for it to warm up so we decided to get our meals to go. Maybe it was a busy night and the staff was short but for our first experience it wasn’t great but not horrible. Maybe we’ll try it again in the future hoping for a better experience.

    I was very happy to find this spot in downtown Utica. Usually when you find a hotel restaurant, you have a lot of trepidations about trying them, but with the name Chesterfield in the kitchen, you can't go wrong. Dinner was delicious and the ambiance was lovely.
