Diverse appetizer spread and unique cocktails
Great food... Great atmosphere!
Best drinks. Best paella. Flatbreads are to die for! Definitely great for before a show or a cute lil date night. Always fast and attentive
Went for a paint night. Nice environment! Didnt try the food though.
Ellie was a very sweet waitress and Seamus was great at carrying out our waters!! Great food and great experience
We love the Icon. Come here every time we attend a show at Overture. Ellie was an awesome server! And Seamus was very nice.
Kaitlin was amazing bartender and she will give you an awesome Lemon Drop
Service was amazing, food was good. Chicken was a little dry. But drinks were great.
The drinks are great and you can't beat Happy Hour pricing. I had fish tacos and they were also really good.
Great food. Ellie was excellent!
Ellie was great, amazing food as well
Ellie was amazing and attentive, the atmosphere and vibe was divine and the food? Delicious. Highly recommend!
Amazing food for brunch....drinks made with extra love, attentive and fun staff (shout out to Antonio) and a great Motown soundtrack!!! Always worth the visit!!!
The Icon is an eclectic restaurant with a comfortable environment and appealing menu. The food is great, and the staff are friendly and attentive. It's a great choice for a meal before a show at the Overture Center. More...
We went to a mid day Paint Nite. The breakfast burrito was great! I also had a refreshing glass of moscato.
I have been here several times. I love the food, and the staff are always so great and helpful! We also love the wine dinners they host. I definitely recommend checking it out. A great way to sample the amazing menu items and delicious wine choices. We will return! More...
Great Food, great drinks & great service! Will definately go back again!
The fish tacos are amazing. Try them.Great atmosphere. Decent prices. Fantastic food. This is an awesome place for a date.
We had the Garlic Shrimp and Cocas and they were delicious. Our Bartender very friendly and offered to make us some special drinks with elderflower and it was amazing. Our waitress was also very attentive and look forward to our next trip there! More...
Went during a business trip, great food and service.
Marcus has the best drink options. We had a great time. Best late night bar with a low key atmosphere.
Classy and fun, not to mention reasonably priced and delicious! Great location on State Street and nice staff.
Large and diverse menu. Nice bar with good selection. Hard working staff. Clean and good atmosphere
Really loud and like the idea of small plated foods.
A great place for a glass of wine or for a group of friends. I haven't had a bad meal here yet!
Very good brunch and service. Was not rushed. Unique dishes.
The Dr. Strangelove cocktail was worth every penny and refreshing on a hot summer night. However, it took awhile without a large crowd. Old-school movie was a nice touch.
This is our go to spot in Madison. It is a little more pricy than some places around so be prepared for easily a $65-$75 bill for two people but the food is outstanding. We love the potato croquettes and I’m a fan of the white sardines. More...
I love Icon - particularly the Tuesday happy hour when a grouping of appetizers and a decent selection of drinks are offered at reduced prices. It's also a great place to have a drink before and/or after a performance at the Overture. We did recently check out their brunch, and were somewhat disappointed in the food. It was good, just not as tasty or, perhaps not prepared as well, as that which is offered on their evening menu. Had brunch been as good as all of my previous visits, this rating would have been 5 stars instead of 4. More...

The new bar manager, Marcus, is amazing! He made up drinks for us based on flavors we enjoy. His tropical long islands are the best! Everyone should check out this bar on State St. More...
Bacon wrapped dates are the best thing ever!
the Food was amazing. Baked goat cheese and stuffed flatbread highly recommended. Paella was also incredible. Ellen, our server was helpful and informative and downright nice.
Creative atmosphere blends well with the creative spirit of the mixologist. Think well outside the box when here and you won't be disappointed.
So my friends and I came to The Icon tonight and had a PHENOMENAL experience. Lemme tell you about it: so we didn’t know what to get and the Bartender made a Jalepeño/pineapple shot and it ROCKED MY WORLD (totally recommend). We had a couple more infused shots and just an overall amazing experience here. I recommend you all come and get the infused shots and listen to the good music!! More...
If you want wine, cocktails, and some yummy tapas, this is the place. I love small plates, because you can try lots of different things. Excellent wine selection, but the last time I went I had a cocktail and watched the world go by out the window. They have outdoor seating on the sidewalk as well, but it was far too hot when we went, and we were glad to get into the AC. Right in the heart of downtown, across from the Overture Center, and on the same block as the Orpheum, so it can get quite crowded, especially if there is a show at either theater. But on other nights it can be quiet and a great place to actually have a conversation with a friend, especially for happy hour. Even when it is crowded, it's not loud and hard to talk, a nice change from many restaurants and bars. More...
This is a great Madison restaurant. Just had an amazing dinner served by an excellent server named Marcus. Highly recommended!
Great place! Marcus makes some amazing infused liquors! Great times!
If you're ok with spending a little bit, I had no problems here. It was a very nice atmosphere and the food was brought out in a timely and logical way. Would go back again.
We loved this place for their tapas and sangria. Always pleasant. The food quality is good. Would recommend for dinner visits or cocktails.
Tapas to die 4
The food was very good, authentic tapas. We ordered a variety of dishes including the vegetarian paella. The restaurant was clean, service was very good.
Love the feel of this Old Hollywood themed tapas bar. They have a great selection of martinis with unique names. My favorite is the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory martini.
We were in Madison for the first time ever and saw this place. We decided to give it a try. Overall experience was good. Service was excellent. Most of the food was good. Atmosphere was great. Prices seemed high compared to what I'm used to with our local tapas. And only a couple of the 5 dishes we tried were great. That said, I recommend going. More...
The asparagus was surprisingly good.
Great food and wine
So tasty!!! Great selection.
Beautiful upscale restaurant. The staff was very attentive. The meats were incredibly moist. The fried foods were very crisp. Lastly, the wine selection was accommodating. It's a great 'try a little bit of everything' restaurant to go to with a large group. Normally, you don't think of such a classy place when you think of tapas! More...
Awesome food and drinks
Above average tapas with a good atmosphere. The food was tasty, but a touch overpriced unless you make it for happy hour.
Excellent and tasty food. Salmon in potato crust was great, cheese play was wonderful too with tasty olives.
Tapas and Drinks close to the square .
Great specials on Wednesday and Thursday nights. Variety of great tapas and a great ambiance to catch up with one or two friends
Friendly service! I thought the prices were decent, and two items we got were good. We will be going back for sure.
Went with some friends before a show, great cocktails! Lots of variety on the menu, loved the seafood!
I really like the buff Greek bar tender
The bartenders were great. Drinks were made perfectly. Great place to socialize very friendly atmosphere & a great variety of specialty drinks & wine.
My family and I have long searched for a good place for Tapas in Madison - The Icon exceeded all of our expectations. The menu was large, the food was delicious, and the service was wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like to have a delectable meal in a comfortable, cool atmosphere. More...
