Our sandwiches will be served on biscuits & we’ll have chicken & waffles on every menu. Brunch is obviously southern & will be a big part of what we do. The drinks are takes on classics like the Mint Julep but revved up & including a lot of house made ingredients.
The décor has a southern influence with antebellum charm & elegant polish, stated most clearly in our reworked air stream trailer parked in the garden for VIP reservations. The whole restaurant will feel like a quirky southern aristocrat’s home…just not exactly what you might think.

Great menu and my out of town guests loved it! Appetizers were excellent.
We love Ida Claire! The service is always fantastic as are the drinks, food, and ambience!
They lost our food that we asked to be boxed up - had to wait another 30 minutes for another plate to be provided. Plus took more than 15 minutes for waitress to ask for our drink order.
Food was good though.
This was my first trip to Ida Claire. I very much liked the location (easy to access off of Beltline) and the table settings were nice. Especially liked the passport book to add notes to that came with the check. Most of the food was very good. The fried green tomatoes were crispy, tasty and the dipping sauce very good. The biscuits are a must order. We also ordered dessert to go and the key lime pie was delicious. I had steak and my friend short ribs and we both loved our entrees. I also ordered a side of grits to try them but was disappointed in them. Did not ask for a refund but should have...they were tasteless and cold. Literally, zero taste. The only other issue was that while we had a very nice waitress, who could not have been more pleasant when at our table, her table visits were very slow and getting anything we asked for slow. They did seem very short handed. We almost didn't get dessert because of how slow the process was. Overall, would definitely go back but just a few things that I felt needed comment.
Very nice server. Yummy food too! Loved the fried green tomatoes.
Excellent dining experience. Service was great. Food was really delicious. The wait person was attentive and helpful. Food came quickly and was excellent. Fried Green Tomatoes were very good. Also, we had the Kale and Chicken Salad, Fried Chicken and the Pecan Crusted Pork Chop. All fantastic. Nice atmosphere. Fun place to go. We will remember this restaurant next time. Great place.
Great ambience and food. We met the manager on duty who was super attentive, a must go to spot in Dallas!
Our server was outstanding. She was super attentive and quick and had great suggestions. We constantly had water refilled and checked on without being rushed. Everyone was super nice and helpful! Food was delicious and great portions.
Outstanding visit! Loved the salads, crawfish beignet & dry rosé. Ava was a lovely server as well.
Ida Claire was very good with great character and a unique menu. I would've liked to see more healthy options as there is a lot of fried food but it's a great place to eat.
Another great time at Ida Claire! Thanks
Food is amazing!
Food - excellent. Server - friendly & knowledgeable. We'd love it if the server wore a mask next time. Music level - a bit too loud.
Had a reservations and was seated immediately. Very good food, excellent service.
Strongly recommend for any occasion.
Fabulous from beginning to end. Love the cocktail selections. Delicious!!
On vacation and stopped here!! So good!! Amazing service!
Usually a great experience, however, this time service was a little lax; not bad, just not up to their usual standards.
Great customer service food and environment. Clean bathrooms
Food is interesting (recommended is the duck and potato hash and the fried green tomatoes) and normally something you may not make at home. Service is welcoming and efficient with a great attitude every time we have been there. We live in Houston but make a point of going to Ida Claire every visit to Dallas and have had happy remarks from all friends we have sent there.
The vibe is joyous people that are diverse and all respectful of one another with some quirky elements like an Airstream outside in the garden where you can actually eat. There are misters so one can sit outside in the hotter weather. Make reservations and arrive on time or expect to wait. Bon appétit !
We always enjoy ourselves here. Be sure to make a reservation to avoid a long wait. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious as always.
My daughter did her 16th birthday friend celebration here for brunch. The food was amazing and the service perfect! It made for a memorable experience!
I went to Ida Claire because I like the Nashville Hot Chicken. they have changed the chicken since the last time I was there. Instead of boneless breast of chicken it is boned in chicken. the chicken is not the same quality and does not have the same taste. This used to be the best Nashville Hot Chicken in Dallas but no longer and I may not go back for it.
Very good experience for my 1st visit. Hosts and servers were great, food was fresh and delicious.
Our waitress was friendly but anxious & overwhelmed, the food was ok. I guess I had super high expectations based on reviews. Or maybe they are known for certain dishes, obviously not ones we got (braised short rib was good but needed some seasonings, seafood pasta was ok also needed some seasonings, spiced chicken was ok - the seasonings were more outside the chicken). Sweet tea was great, fried green tomatoes were great! The decor was cool, comfortable atmosphere, prices a little high but good quantity of food.
This place is absolutely wonderful. Their food is awesome and very fresh. The Gulf Seafood dip, Seafood pasta, key lime and pecan pie was out of this world. This is my new favorite restaurant
I was so glad I made reservations since this place was so crowded! I was surprised that 300pm on Saturday afternoon was such a busy time. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful, it was our first visit so we had a few questions. I ordered chicken and waffles and it was the best chicken I’ve ever had. Light and crispy and not greasy at all. We will definitely return, even though it’s a little bit pricier than I like to pay for brunch.
Food was great. Service was good. Table selection was just ok as it was by the servers computer stand so a lot of action by our table. I would return.
This is great semi casual place place to come, have some tasty food and drinks. It does get a bit busy, but, staff goes outta their way to make sure you have a good dining experience. This is a good place to celebrate events with family, have a night out with friends or may be a first date😘. Highly recommend, Ida Claire is good food and great service!!
The food is amazing. Every bite was a wow moment. It was great for our date and the playlist music is wonderful.
Great place to meet for a business lunch. Good food and fun building. Could have a conversation because it is not loud. Good service and didn't feel rushed.
Always amazing. Love the menu and the staff.
Excellent food and service!
Chicken and waffles are the best! The Ding Dong Cake is a must have! We will be back to try more dishes!!!
Wonderful service and food was so good
Very nice ambience. The food and drinks were mediocre at best. Overall good time. Would not return
Can't wait to return! The food was truly amazing. The music was a bit too loud though.
All entrees surpassed our expectations. The Blackened Redfish with orzo was savory with a bit of spice and the Salmon with the braised greens was smoky and resplendent with hot red peppers and a yogurt sauce. The Duck Nachos are to die for, a unique interpretation with fried eggs and gravy serving as a sauce for nicely shredded duck on crispy chips. Service was attentive and informative, making great suggestions and timing the flow of our dinner well.
Food was so good! Service was great too!
Service was just ok and the food isn’t as good as it used to be.
We had a great time at Ida Claire on our girls' night out. Our server was kind and accommodating. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and desserts and split them and it was a southern food dream!
