Lunch with friends. Service was very good. Eclectic menu, nicely prepared and presented food. Great place to watch music. The only thing I'd complain about is that the din of the patrons tends to drown out the sound coming from the performers. Noticed this both on visits. I'd like to see an upgraded sound system but That's my only complaint.

The food here is awesome - I've been for breakfast and dinner and it hasn't disappointed. The only reason why I knocked down the rating was due to average service and ambiance. If you don't care too much about those things, I would actually rate the food on the 5-star end, driven by the tasting menu at the chef's table... More

This was a return trip and it lived up to expectations. Great country western singers/steel guitar, lovely cider and all types of good food. the inside and outside seating is great in this preserved old building. I always remember the red curtain from some old movie theatre on the stage. everything about this place is impressive, and beware you may... More

We have dined at Icehouse a number of times, including for birthday celebrations with a 10 course chef's table menu. Chef Matt prepares unusual combinations of fresh food, presented artistically and with an international flair. Tonight I had the soft shell crab Caesar and a tuna/soba dish while my husband also had a rare (!) burger and among the best... More

I had a business lunch at Icehouse recently and I can't think of one thing I though was above average during my meal. There were very few people there on a beautiful day. After a brief discussion with the chef, our waiter was unable to accommodate a pretty simple menu request. And our dishes were small and only moderately interesting... More

Unusual menu, some unfamiliar words but waiter explained well. Every drink, main and side was interesting. Wife has short ribs which were more like steak tips, not usual fatty slabs -- which was good. This is a music venue at night. We went early weekday evening so was quiet. No street parking available but off streets lot with valet parking... More

The servers and staff at this restaurant, bar, music venue went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. It was a busy night as there was live music and we didn't have reservations. They found a place for us and even though we had tow wait quite awhile for one in our party to arrive there was no... More

Our first time at Icehouse and we couldn't have been more pleased! Nissa was an excellent server in every way. She was friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the menu. She was attentive without being obtrusive and never made us feel rushed so we could enjoy a relaxed meal. The food was beautifully presented and delicious! The pastries on the assorted... More
