I.D. is a great brunch spot. Food is always great. Service is slow which puzzles me because only a few people were dining on our visit last Sunday afternoon.

Loved everything about our night- All staff were amazing. From the bartenders to the sommelier to the wait staff- Everyone was super friendly and knowledgeable. We gave our waiter carte blanche to choose our courses and he did not disappoint! Highly recommend and we will be back!

My husband and I went out for an early NYE dinner- we chose the counter seating by the kitchen as that seemed like good people watching... and I love cooking so it allowed me to see the preparation. We ordered 6 items to split and it was not only delicious but more than enough. Our favorites were the gnocchi and the whipped feta dip. The salmon was done to perfection ( not dry) and the shrimp and chicken chorizo skillet were so tasty. We drank craft cocktails- which were also very good- this is not our first time here and it won’t be our last!

Everything was awesome as far as flavor, presentation and service! My only comment was the food came out too fast. We ordered small plates and we would get half way through with one and the next plate would arrive. We were in and out within an hour on New Years Eve!

Another fabulous dinner! Enjoyed a bottle of Albarino that was to die for and paired nicely with our choices. The scallops were cooked perfectly, the shrimp and grits were creamy, and the special was mouth-wateringly tender.

I loved the seasonal dark chocolate peppermint ho ho hos too!

The staff was accommodating, the server was knowledgeable enthusiastic and made excellent recommendations. We were seated and served in a timely manner. The food and drinks were delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for our small group Holiday celebration. All the food was good, but the sweet potato gnocchi and the shrimp and grits were outstanding!!

My party rented out the wine room a few weeks or so ago. We worked with Brian before hand to curate a menu and wine pairings. Everything from the moment we sat down until the moment we left was fantastic. The food was top notch along with Brian's wine selections. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking out a memorable dinner. We have been to this restaurant a number of times, and it delivered once again.

Thank you for the great night!

Overall a good experience but not as good as last time and there were a few key aspects of the dining experience that were overlooked. On a positive note, the fall menu items were amazingly tasty and I love how the team members all help each other throughout the restaurant.

Sat outside for most of meal on deck Nice seating better than many makeshift outdoor seating plans. 2 of us sat at long table for 8? Really liked sharing menu Food was very good, Korean short ribs nice Skip Gnocchi, too tough. Asked to move inside for dessert due to demand for outdoor seating (could have been avoided if 2 long tables for 8 were tables for 4). Indoor was pleasant and well spaced. Comfortable and classy setting. Attentive and friendly service, very nice, knowledgeable wait staff. Coffee French press and carrot cake good. Recommend before snow falls to be able to sit outdoor patio.

Went to I.d. for my wife’s birthday. It was Sunday brunch and we were given a table for four in the main dining room. Tables were spaced out nicely and the noise level was fine for conversation. Service was great and we never felt rushed. Our two grown boys, who can eat a lot, both had leftovers and were very happy they came along. My wife had the Eggs Benedict and commented that the meal was prepared perfectly. The coffee was delicious and I had a Bloody Mary that was very good. All in all, a great family meal.

Fabulous food and cocktails once again! The new autumnal menu had seasonal choices that were delicious. We tried the two specials - bison steak and pheasant. Both of these dishes were outstanding - the bison cooked perfectly with a great crust and excellent seasoning, the pheasant had a crispy skin and juicy interior with fabulous sides.

The cocktails were on point and their new cocktail that had a burnt cinnamon stick smelled amazing. Can't wait to go back!

We thoroughly enjoyed I.D.'s special Wild Game Dinner event. I.D. focuses on unique small plates. We started with Elk Carpaccio, followed by Rabbit Agnolotti and finished with Wild Boar Saffron Ragu. Each was fantastic in its own way with flavors and accents that were a pleasant surprise with each dish. Portions were perfect for us to share. Truth be told, we would have tried one more dish (probably the Pheasant) but we needed to save room for our dessert -- the Black Forest Chocolate Creameau. It was, simply, to die for. Congratulations to the culinary staff at I.D. for putting together a memorable dining experience for us that we will long remember.

The Wild Game Dinner theme was amazing! I loved that the dishes were medium sized so that you could pass it around the table and everyone could try each one. Because there was an overflowing amount of people in the dining room, they set up another room within the hotel for others to be seated which was where we were sitting, and didn’t mind it. There were only a handful of tables, but we enjoyed being more secluded and quieter. It was on the pricey side, however my family didn’t mind spending that much because we knew we were going to get quality food. Quality over quantity! Overall, the experience was great. We will definitely be back for another theme night!

We had a variety of dishes, the quality was not at a 4 Diamond level.

Cheese Plate: Three cheeses served ice cold, nothing special about the variety, all could be found in the local Pick and Save. The garnishes were sub-par, raw filberts, oily and hard baguette, a very tart berry sauce. Presentation was poor, randomly scattered on the plate.

Truffle Fries: Very oily and overly salted... too much truffle oil. Smothered in a poor quality pre-shredded Parmesan cheese, US Foodservice sells this plastic stuff in 5 pound bags. Recommend using real Parmesan Regiano and grated just before serving, a little goes a long way. Plate did not have chives. Aioli was ok.

Shrimp and Grits: Best dish we had, the broth was a bit too thin, and the shrimp were overlooked.

Burger: Was cooked med-well vs. med-rare. Onions were nice.

Spicy Pizza, forget the name: Was ok, was covered in same low quality Parmesan.

All the desserts had ice cream, just an observation.

Server was unable to even pronounce the special, but aside from this was attentive.

Excellent tapas style menu. Nice wine selection. Scallops first rate, pork belly tender, salmon perfectly done.

Our server however was less than good, stumbled over the specials, not attentive, brought the check and forgot to come back... we had to flag down a manager to pay.
