Our visit for brunch on Sunday was excellent! Three of us ordered omelets which were served with roasted potatoes and I ordered the blueberry pancakes. YUM! Everything was prepared well and was served hot and delicious!

We’ve heard really good things about ID in the past. It lived up to the high. The food was delicious and the ambience was great. The music is a little bit too loud, but the atmosphere was still great.

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.

Heard mixed reviews so we thought we would give ID a try. Always like trying new places. Overall, it was disappointing. Nice looking place and ambience so first impressions were good. Service did not align with the ambience. Young adults with not much experience communicating with customers. Small plate food concept and the only plate we could not complain about is the salad. All the plates sound wonderful in terms of the mixed ingredients but the execution was the issue. The Brussel sprouts with smoked bacon should have been stated as smoked undercooked pork belly. Smoked bacon makes you think of a pancetta style, which would have been lovely. The miso vinaigrette again sounded like a great add but is was excessively applied taking away from the dish. The scallops were nicely cooked and tender but again the compliments in the dish sounded great but it was all excessively applied. It made wonder if the chef was out because execution was lacking.

We ate out on their front patio which was very pleasant. there's also a nice side patio, but we made our reservations late. Our food was absolutely mouth watering. We had a prosciutto and mushroom flat bread, gnocchi with blue cheese sauce and mushrooms and shrimp and grits. One dish was better than the last.

Excellent restaurant. Plenty of seating spaced well apart so that you can relax and enjoy your meal with your loved ones. Excellent service and not pushy or hurrying you through your food which I appreciated. The brunch the next day was equally as wonderful and we will be back soon to enjoy all they have to offer. Would highly recommend

Dishes were excellent - for 2 people we ordered 5 because everything looked so good. The whipped feta and street corn pizza were the highlights, as well as the scallops. Our server was polite, attentive but not intrusive.

I have eaten here once before and it truly is a remarkable place. The ambiance is incredible, service extremely attentive. I went with a group we ordered one of everything off the menu. It was hard to pick the best plate! Tapas style is more expensive dinning experience but the food is fantastic. The server noticed we didn’t care for some of the mixed drinks and asked for a replacement right away. Impeccable service! Highly recommend.

We had the pleasure of dining Saturday evening at ID. The restaurant did a nice job of keeping the tables spaced comfortably for the diners. Once we arrived we waited for a short duration before a less than friendly hostess greeted us; it was if we were bothering her. Once seated we had a wonderful server by the name of Maya. She was extremely attentive and offered a wine sampling to help my wife chose the wine she was going to pair with dinner. The food is small plates and they were served nicely prepared and delivered in a timely order which allowed us to enjoy each plate and savor the flavors. We look forward to going back soon to try other offerings.

We came here to celebrate our nephew's High School graduation and my husband's birthday. Ambience and decor is unique and well thought-out. Service was wonderful. Wide range of choice from the bar, the Summer Garden cocktail is lovely. Dinner was delicious and beautifully presented. A wonderful, comfortable, yet classy atmosphere for a perfectly laid-back summer celebration. Our compliments to the staff and chefs, we look forward to another celebration here soon!

My wife and I ate here for both dinner and breakfast this past weekend (Aug 15-16). As always the service was top notch and the food was incredible. I have to highlight 2 items (Shrimp and Grits for dinner and the fried chicken and biscuits/gravy). Everything was amazing and definitely will return.

This was our first time at a "Flip" dinner after enjoying many wonderful meals at I.D. The food was amazing! It was varied, fresh and everything was delicious. The service was spot on. They accommodated our request to dine on their lovely porch. The sommelier was extremely helpful as always. We will be back, many times.

For our first time dining at I.d. and we couldn’t have been more pleased! Our server was excellent, helpful & efficient (only around as much as needed), and the creative menu flip was full of Amazing food combinations I’ve never tried before. Excellent wine pairings for the event as well. The environment is lovely & comfortable. We will definitely return for a sampling of their standard fare...can’t wait!

Attend brunch at I.D.
No regular coffee only french press, lattes and cappuccinos, etc. While lattes were okay (not worth $5.00) - they got cold very fast as the restaurant itself was freezing. I had blueberry pancakes and they came out with the syrup already on the pancakes (I have never seen this in all my times out for breakfast/brunch) - was never asked if I wanted it directly on the pancakes - if I would have known I would have asked for it on the side. The top pancake was fully saturated with syrup and the other two were dry - not good. My companion had a goat cheese and kale omelette - very skimpy on the ingredients and the only side were three roasted potatoes - so not worth a $14 price tag. The service was okay - I felt like there was no explanation of what was included or side choices etc. Restaurant was not busy at all. Would not go back - at least for brunch. I have eaten dinner and apps there before and it was a much better experience. Very disappointing.

Atmosphere was great, we were able to eat on the patio. Food was amazing although a bit pricey for the portions. My only complaint was the lack of masks worn by staff. While I understand it's difficult for patrons to wear masks while eating, I believe it should be enforced for staff to ensure the safety of patrons. These are weird times we are living in and the courtesy of wearing a mask is greatly appreciated.
