Love the quiet upscale atmosphere. Service was excellent. Food was very good. A little rich tasting and a bit salty however overall delicious. Looking forward to visiting again.

Went for the restaurant flip, and I won’t judge them on it because it was probably outside of their comfort zone. However, its a nice place, the service was great but the food lacked flavor execution and flavor. German food is peasant food and shouldn’t be over thought or over dressed. Proper execution and simple flavors would of made a bigger impact but like I said this was their flip and not something they are accustomed to doing food wise. The apple strudel was cold when it got to our table and that was probably the biggest let down of the evening.

The food and ambience were great as always. Was a little disappointed with the service. The waiter pressured us to order all of our food right away, stating how busy the restaurant was that evening. He continued to make us feel that we had to keep things moving along throughout our meal. It was a bit annoying, but the food was very good.

Great dinner with excellent service. Hard to choose on dishes because they all sounded so good. Also very tasty cocktails at the bar before dinner. We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Would definitely recommend.

Nice place and great environment for groups of friends to get together. Food was well prepared and the desert was 1 of the best we've ever had. I wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a romantic atmosphere...its loud and busy. Thought it was odd they didnt have cocktail napkins or stir sticks for the drinks. Overall, we'll be back for another try.

This was my first experience with this type of serving. When the waiter suggested we needed to order five selections for the two of us if we were hungry I was confused. We went along with it. The food was awesome the waiter was very helpful. We were even seated next to a large group that was somewhat loud. The waiter came over and suggested we move to a more private table. That was very nice. I will come again

I did not know what to expect in regard to the small plate menu and if I would like it. But I was pleasantly surprised. Each of our choices was delicious, they arrived at a good pace, and the presentation was wonderful. The crepe cake was amazing.

Great experience - arrived on time, diverted myself and colleague to the bar. We were treated as special guests, despite this making us horribly late to our table. Numerous team members checked on us, made sure we were trying their best selections, and all of the recommendations were spot on. Will be back.

The food was delicious and presented well. Our server was very good, prompt, polite and helpful. The atmosphere was very nice. We arrived at 6:45 PM on a Saturday night and the noise level increased as the night went on but it certainly was manageable. It is a casual dining experience with the small plates generally coming out individually. Our plates came out at a nice pace and we did not feel we had to wait too long between plates. In general any small plate can be shared by two diners but not three or four diners. We felt a couple of the plates were too small even for two diners. We will likely go back again to try some other items we did not order on our first visit. Understand you are not likely to leave with any leftovers to enjoy at home.

Food was fantastic as usual. Only critique, don’t slice scallops and sear both sides. Very over done. The new budino was to die for.

Brunch at I.d. was excellent! Brunch options included gluten free, vegan and locally sourced items. Mimosas, tea, smoothies, coffees. The beignets were delicious, as were the manchego biscuits and chorizo gravy. We have been for dinner, which was also amazing. We love i.d.!

First time there on 8/11/19 at approximately 4:46pm. The bartender, he was very pleasant and great conversation!

The menu and restaurant was great and enjoyed the outdoor space for dining.

We had a few items by recommendation, spare ribs/scallops were delish!!

I always enjoy a good truffle fry!... this order took some time to arrive at our table-it had delicious flavor but, much too greasy to thoroughly enjoy and mostly left behind.. big disappointment!!

This is the second time I've dined at I.d. with two of my childhood friends. Both times we had the same server (I think his name is Richard), and he took exceptional care of us. We appreciated his guidance on the number of items to order and which items to order, and we were not disappointed. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious. We shared each dish so that we could enjoy as many dishes as possible. I don't remember everything we had, but the Mexican chocolate dessert was especially memorable. We dined outside on the deck with a view of the sunset and, later, lightning in the distance.
It was a great setting. I can't wait to return to Wisconsin for another wonderful meal at I.d. with my friends!

My, oh my! Talk about good fortune, good food, and a great setting. We caught the best time on the best date with the best weather and the experience was absolutely delightful. Imagine being on the veranda of a luxurious hotel with a screen blocking the setting sun as it descends over the verdant hills of the surrounding countryside. Add beautiful weather, a seemingly endless series of scrumptious small plates to share, with fine wines and other liquid refreshment and that's what we shared with good friends. We have traveled the world and eaten in many fine restaurants. The ambiance of i.d. on the screened in porch as the sun set was one of our best dining experiences anywhere. We will definitely be back.

Food continues to be well constructed and presented. I could use an alternative brewed coffee than the $7 French press (of value if you want to share or drink the entire press container). High quality ingredients, creative pairings, large inviting spaces, I.d. is a great choice for us in Lake Country.
