Food and service was fine. Wish the bar staff would have waited until we were done with a mealtime prayer instead of, rather loudly, announcing he had our drinks. That was an important time for my friends and I. I would ask the powers that be to educate the staff by trying a different way to announce service.

Everything was absolutely wonderful. From the table location I requested, to the magnificent wine, the beautifully crafted small plates and the amazing dessert. Been there dozens of time and will continue to go there. Thank you Michael.

Food was great. Service was a little slow. Took
A good 7 minutes for initial greeting and he was ready to walk through menu until I said “ we’d like to order drinks.” To be fair, it looked like he also had the private room to serve which is bad staff management and maybe not his fault. Timing of food was fine. And food was terrific. Richard (our waiter) was friendly-enough just not focused on us.

Amazing restaurant! Excellent service, waiter knew menu very well and explained items before we even had questions. Food was fantastic and came to the table quickly! Atmosphere was very fun and classy. Our waiter even did two card tricks after our meal. It was obvious he really likes his job! Would definitely recommend and will be going back!

Went out for my wife’s birthday. We started with the Truffle fries and My wife is a big fan of Foie Gras which she enjoyed. Then we moved onto the Tapa style small plates. The duck which was excellent. We also enjoyed the Short rib / Scallops which was amazing along with the smash burger and the Pork Belly Confit. My wife and daughter enjoyed everything. Dessert was outstanding as well. We loved the French press coffee along with the Caramel Praline Crunch and the Crème Brûlée. All in all excellent meal. Very refreshing5 star experience.

We had a wonderful New Years Eve dinner. The pork belly and flatbread were so different and delicious and the whipped feta is a favorite that I hope stays on the menu for good. The highlight to any meal I have at ID is the Meet Me in the Garden cocktail.

Truffle fries - Stoopid tasty, loved em

Brussel sprouts - Too Sweet for me, nice chunks of bacon.

Cauliflower Gratin - okay, but would pass on them next time.

Duck Breast - really enjoyed, especially the blueberry sauce, was there a dijon as well? Idk. Don’t think I need to have sweet potato Spätzle again

Ribeye - love a ribeye, this didn’t stand out. Potatoes were good.

Service was exceptional, cocktails were on point. Atmosphere in general was spot on, music at a good volume, could still hear it just above the crowd.

Will I go back? Potentially. Lots of places to try still.

Wonderful evening. We sat at the counter overlooking the kitchen- it was fun to watch the chefs prepare the meals! We had a wonderful bottle of Oberon and the staff was so accommodating for our kids- offering fun drinks for them not on the menu. If you eat one thing- you must try the Parmesan truffle fries!

We ordered a short rib and scallop dish. When the dish was brought to us, the waitress explained that the kitchen told her that they were out of short ribs so just gave us more scallops instead. We were never asked if this was ok, and/or if there was something else on the menu that we would have preferred. We would never had ordered this dish if it was scallop only. We did not ask but the restaurant made no attempt to compensate us in any way and just assumed we were ok with the change of the dish. This is our only gripe. The food is outstanding otherwise.

We went for brunch on a Sunday. Excellent menu and some nice drinks, too. I got the Pico de Vodka, infused with cucumber and jalapeño and hibiscus - really refreshing and an excellent compliment to the southwest spare rib bowl that was delicious. My wife got the corned beef hash and it was fantastic. Service excellent and the ambiance was too. We will return to try dinner.

We decided to try a new place for dinner. The restaurant was beautiful from the moment we walked in. Had a wonderful table by the window. Richard was a great waiter. He recommended the pork belly. It did not disappoint. The honey cake was scrumptious. Liked the small plates menu. Bailey stopped by to check on us. She was a delight. Not only will we be going back for dinner but will bring friends. Also told our children to try it for their next date night.

The food dish was either bland or had way too many flavors going on.
the only tasty dish had 2 short ribs the size of a small meatball.
fries tasted only of grease.
squash salad tasted of hard shells with mush on inside
scallops tasted frozen and rubbery.

This is time and again a winner for date night. You know that conversation you have that goes something like “we should try something new, but what?” Then you and your partner go back and forth for hours or days deciding where to go? Then you choose and old favorite and you’re so happy you did… that’s I.D. Always delicious, excellent wine selection, service staff that is trained and knows what they are doing, beautiful ambiance and a chef that keeps things interesting. I always recommend this place and will continue to!
