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. We hope that you will be able to visit us in the future

Food was decent, but not great. For the price, I was expecting it to be fantastic. The atmosphere was very cool, but the pricy drink special ($14), underwhelming crab and (mostly) rice balls, and lukewarm lobster ravioli were disappointing. If you’re looking to spend good money for good food, look elsewhere.

Terrific time! Kind friendly service, outstanding food! Combine those with a very beautiful building and decor and you have a unique experience which one cannot duplicate anywhere near by. The historic and beautiful hotel is worth seeing just by itself!

Our friend saw that perogie were featured with one of the entrees and she asked for a special preparation of that dish. The chef gladly accommodated her request and went above and beyond making us all very happy!

This place is the gem of Utica, the Mohawk Valley and All of central New York.

I had initially booked a table early in the morning, celebrating my wife’s birthday. I had checked the birthday box and put us down as being a party of 2, as typically our 8 month old eats off of our plates and doesn’t typically take up much room. I called the restaurant and spoke with the manager and had mentioned bringing our 8 month old who could stay in her car seat or sit in a high chair. We arrived for our 5:30 reservation and were greeted with a smile and brought promptly to our table.

Sitting on the table was a card from the staff, thanking us for dining with them and on the other side it said happy birthday. Our server was fantastic and very attentive to us. Drinks never went without a refill. Speaking of drinks- the apple cinnamon mule was TO DIE FOR!

I ordered a bowl of French onion soup and the filet with glazed carrots and loaded fries. My wife had ordered the salmon with a side salad, and we decided to order a meal for the baby. She had Mac and cheese.

The staff was frequently checking in on us and making friendly conversation about the baby. The manager had stopped several times to inquire about our experience. We told her that everything was lovely and we would definitely be back. She had asked if we had been before and we shared that we used to meet there prior to being “Iconic” and that we also had taken some pictures after our wedding reception upstairs.

Folks, do NOT sleep on this one. This is hands down the best meal my wife and I have had in a long time. We will definitely be back and hope that you all find this review to be helpful and patronize this awesome restaurant.

Food was excellent. Sweet chili garlic wings were excellent, crispy skins, juicy meat, director sauce. Bbq burger was huge, too big for 1 and waffle fries were great. Tuscan chicken was to sure for. Creme brue lee was very good and well presented. Nose from the bar was prominent but bearable.

We went on Valentine's Day, fantastic decor and seating arrangements!

It was VERY BUSY, and it took a while for service to kick in. It seemed as if they were understaffed?

Anyway, the staff was very friendly, and we did not care about the wait. I could see some people getting annoyed by the wait time.

Would recommend!

Thank you for the kind words- we are pleased that you enjoyed your meal and the overall experience. We appreciate your understanding on the slower that normal service. We were understaffed as a server did not show. Going forward we will definitely overstaff on the holidays to ensure timely delivery of meals.

All I can say is run fast and as far away from this place as possible. The service was slow and the waitress actually seemed bothered with anything we asked. Now let’s get to the food we ordered the lobster ravioli save yourself $27.00 and buy a can chef boyardee much better. The sea bass tasted like a Burger King fish sandwich that sat under a heat lamp for a week

We are sorry to hear that your dining experience did not meet your expectations or ours. We typically receive excellent reviews on our food; it seems there was a problem with the preparation of your meals. Our chefs use excellent products & each meal is prepared to order. I visited nearly every table last night - unfortunately, I must have missed yours. Your guest check has been located and the service issue was addressed.
