Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

The Icebox is a curious mix of industrial space (exposed ducting, hard metallic surfaces), matronly tearoom (creamy chocolate cakes on frilly stands) and gay bar (beefcake waiters serve a campy crowd). But it’s quite pleasant, especially for a quick cuppa while shopping on nearby Lincoln Road. However, lingering over coffee and cake earns you scowls around lunchtime, when hungry shoppers queue for the Med-style cuisine from a surprisingly ambitious daily changing menu. Don’t forget to save room for dessert; the restaurant’s Chocolate Delight was named one of the "best cakes in America" by Oprah Winfrey.
