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.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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!

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!!!

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.
