Icon Grill is the epitome of Seattle Cuisine, presenting comfort foods (pasta, meatloaf, mac & cheese) with new variations. Frequently, the Icon twist works amazingly well, bringing new flavor and interest to old favorites. On occasion, the Icon formula fails to wow, but those occasions are few and far between. My personal favorite is the cajun rock shrimp penne, a very spicy take on modern pasta. Other favorites include the mac and cheese and tiger prawns with brie (special). Service is generally better than average for the area, attentive, but not intrusive. The decor is modern Seattle eclectic with beautiful glass sculpture and velvet upholstery throughout. Although the dining room tends to have a noisy buzz, it's not obstrusive; you can definitely have a conversation. The biggest knock on Icon may be value; although generally in the range for downtown Seattle, I always feel a tad cheated paying 10.95 for mac and cheese.
