Contemporary Southern
Ida Claire is a funky, southern influenced restaurant & bar open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is notched up southern but has influences from different regions. You’ll most likely see dishes you’ve heard of before but with little twists here and there.

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.

Victoria was our server - she was outstanding.

I've been to Ida Claire Addison a number of times, usually for business lunches. Never been disappointed. It's a little loud at times, in terms of business conversation but I think that's a very minor complaint, if even a complaint at all - call it an observation.

I love this place.

It was just okay. Went for anniversary brunch. Felt like hostesses were meh, little engagement. Waiter was nice enough, but through the meal hostess walked by multiple times with a tablet seeing who was still seating. All very mechanical. Not a memorable positive experience. I can get the same attention anywhere.

Food and service are both top notch. However, the background music is too loud, making it hard for us to talk without raising our voices. Hope they will lower the volume to make it easier for the customers.

Yes the menu is diverse however it fails to show or explain happy hour apps and this is not explained to the customer if there is a short time between happy hour and dinner. The service is slow because it looked like several servers handle the duties. Not impressed with the cost or quantity of the food.

The appetizers that we had were great.

We go quite a lot for lunch due to work. This is the third time that the pork has been undercooked, one of the party is now saying she will not eat there again. The pork was taken off of the bill as we were there at lunch time and in a hurry. She was offer a dessert to take home, we took home the coconut pie. It was dry and not at all good, she threw that away.

So overall not a good experience today.

The atmosphere was kind and inviting. We went for the first time for my sister’s birthday and they even gave her a card with signatures. Beyond that the food was delicious! Definitely would recommend for a fun brunch, lunch, or even dinner !

Reasons I didn’t give 5 stars is because the person who sat us was very rude, and it took over 10 minutes for a server to greet us (it was very busy, so we were understanding of the second part) Simon was the server who noticed that we had not been greeted, he came right over and apologized, and he took our whole order, then Antoinette came and took over. Everything was amazing after that, food timing was perfect, and our server was really nice.

Thankfully we had reservations as the wait was 20+ minutes. Highly recommend getting reservations on Friday & Saturday nights to avoid extended wait periods. Fantastic food and service despite how busy they were.

Duck Nachos were very tasty. Shrimp and ancient grains was okay. The shrimp were great on their own. Ancient grain salad was good on it's own. They just did not go together.
