    Had reservations for 6:45pm, waited 10 minutes before being greeted by the hostess. Then sat down in a booth, waited another 10 minutes without ever seeing anyone or getting a water / drink order. Full dining room being serviced by 2 waitresses doesn’t work. We left and ate across the street.

    We had two fish fries which were good, but more on the greasy side. Also, we ordered calamari as Iconic was our favorite place for it, but it was completely different. Not as tasty and seemed they be ordering something completely different. We were disappointed as it lacked taste and quality. Hopefully they go back to the way it was!

    We had the Tuscan Chicken and the Chicken Riggies and both were excellent. The Tuscan Chicken dish was well balanced and the chicken was cooked perfectly and was still very moist. The Chicken Riggies were so flavorful and the sauce was on the thicker and creamier side in the best way for this dish. Service was amazing! Make sure to try the desserts! The crème brulée and lemon berry mascarpone were exceptional! 10/10 would recommend.

    It wasn’t like it used to be- we go to celebrate our anniversary and take a picture in front of the Christmas tree in the lobby as we had wedding photos taken at the Hotel. We always make reservations and leave a note that reflects that we are celebrating our anniversary. Historically the restaurant did something small to mark the occasion- a signed card thanking us for celebrating our anniversary with them, offering to take our picture in front of the Christmas tree in the lobby while we waited for our meal. Unfortunately that was not the case this time and there were some guests in the hotel lobby that took a picture for us. The meal was okay- the service was alright. I don’t know that we will come back. There used to be a little something extra that the restaurant did to ensure it was an iconic experience.. but that was not the case this time.

    We went to Iconic before seeing a show at the Stanley -after our meal we decided it would be the place to go to before every show of the season! Service was prompt-house wine was upgraded-fig pizza was able to be adapted to vegetarian-and to top it off free dessert for theater goers!!

    Have been many times. Service was good and restaurant is beautiful but unfortunately the food took a major nose dive. Chicken riggies were mediocre at best and very expensive. The pork chop was over cooked and over priced. I don’t mind spending the money on good food, but this was poor in comparison to prior visits.

    My wife and I had our 1-year anniversary dinner and the food/service was great! There was a wedding being held in the lobby outside of the restaurant, so the noise was louder than usual. Otherwise no complaints. The quality of the service and the food was not compromised with the wedding crowd.

    In response to Iconic reaching out to me regarding my review the reason for the 3 stars is as follows. My son & I ordered the rib-eye special, I specifically asked the server if the kitchen was accurate with cooking steaks to my preference which she assured me they were. We both ordered our steaks medium and they both came out well done. My son was very hungry so he ate his, I mentioned it to my server and she put in another order. Unfortunately the new order came out well done also. At this time my family was done eating so she took the meal off of my bill. Everything else very good, unfortunately very few places can cook a steak properly. I was optimistic that Iconic would be able to or I would have ordered something else. I would be very interested in returning for another meal however after 3 steaks were well done I probably would not try the steak option again.
    IconicResponded on August 2, 2023
    Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. This situation is certainly unacceptable and we have taken corrective action to ensure that this does not happen again. Clearly, the cook at the grill station that evening needed additional training. We are pleased to hear that the rest of your meals were satisfactory. Please contact me at 315-724-7829 x3 to discuss your next visit to Iconic.

    I was in town and decided to catch up with an old friend over dinner and am so glad we chose Iconic. Jackie took great care of us and recommended the greens for appetizer - delicious and very generous quantity. Pre-dinner cocktails were perfect - a Hendricks gin and tonic and a Bourbon old fashioned. We both ordered the grilled sea bass special and it did not disappoint - just fabulous. The setting was very elegant and bright, we did eat early (about 5:30) so it was a bit quiet, but folks at the bar were having a good time and there was a nice vibe. I would definitely go back and recommend to check it out whether you're a local or just passing thru.

    Upon entering, the decor is impressive. Our waitress was professional. There’s not a lot of tables and it took a long time to receive our food. Seated at a nearby table was a friend who was waiting 45 minutes and still didn’t have a drink. Three people at my table ordered Tuscan chicken since it was recommended by the host. Disgusting! The alfredo sauce was so think that it didn’t spread to other noodles. The salmon and filet were both good. Not once were we asked how our meal was Dessert on the other hand was very good. It took a while to get it but not bad. We won’t be going back.
    IconicResponded on May 13, 2023
    Hello Stacey, we are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the Tuscan chicken - it really is a house favorite. Your server did tell me that when asked, one person in your group said that he did not like it. She offered to replace the meal with another but the offer was declined. The other two Tuscan chickens were finished or leftovers taken home. I have refunded the Tuscan chicken that wasn't eaten to your card. Happy to hear that the filet & salmon were good! We do hope you try us again!

    Understaffed due to Gala causing the regular 40 customers to deal with only 1 server and no bartender.Waiyress was trying to serve and mix drinks unsuccessfully.
    IconicResponded on May 8, 2023
    Hello Jerald, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the food and ambience. Our apologies for the staffing situation. We had a bartender call off and a senior service team member went home ill. While we plan to be fully staffed each day, sometimes things happen that are beyond our control. Your waitress should not have been mixing drinks and I have addressed this with the staff already. Thank you for pointing that out. We hope that you will try us again! We appreciate your business.

    Hello Nancy, Happy to hear that you enjoyed the brunch. Our apologies for the website miss. We did advertise the brunch buffet heavily on Facebook, IG and Google, but the website was missed (we cannot update the website ourselves). We did have the webmaster post the Mother's Day brunch that is upcoming. Thank you for the feedback!
