First time here for brunch. Lovely, quiet patio could only have been better if music was turned down a bit. Perfect pot of French press coffee all to myself. Corned beef hash was enough for 2 so it may be breakfast again tomorrow. Knowledgeable friendly server, good food, cool breeze on patio, all add up to A+

Fabulous food and amazing service. We loved the small plates concept but wished the pricing was slightly less in comparison to the portions. Very good!!!!!!

We have dined here multiple times and this time did not disappoint. Our service was fantastic and every item we ordered was delicious. The pea risotto was surprisingly more savory than expected and loved that about it. Would re order every dish again. Kimchi cakes with duck egg, scallops & short rib, whitefish & the ribeye all wonderful. They definitely do small dish dining the right way!

This was our first time eating at I.D. and it was a cool experience. My husband is a bit of a picky eater so it was hard to find things on the menu he would like, but he ended up trying everything we ordered. Their truffle fries are delicious and the pea & parmesan risotto was our favorite. We will definitely be back again to try other dishes! The only thing we really didn't care for was the close proximity to the other tables, as their wasnt much privacy. We will still be back!

I.d. seems very self impressed. The menu items are offbeat but in general not very appealing. We struggled to choose something that even looked appealing. The ladies had a salad that included strawberries. The man had a Wisconsin flatbread. Neither one was very good but both were overpriced.

All in all, I would say there are a lot of better dining choices out there. This one missed on just about all counts.

We ate outside on a lovely evening. Our server was great and was happy to offer suggestions. Food was excellent. Only complaint is we over-ordered .... there were six ladies and we ordered 12 small plates. We would have been fine with 9. Especially wish there would have been longer gaps in delivering food. Food came pretty quickly so we ate pretty quickly. It would have been nice to savor the food a bit more slowly. Also. $12 for a glass of wine is ridiculous. A few of us Chardonnay drinkers ordered beer because it was cheaper.

Service was sub par. We told the server it was a special celebration and 52nd wedding anniversary, nothing was said nor was there anything celebratory about the meal. We went for lunch the same day at a different venue and they gave a free dessert and the server wished the couple a happy anniversary.

The menu is quite pricey which would be ok considering the quality of the food. From the start of the experience the wait staff tells you that it's a small plate restaurant so for two people you should expect at least 6 plates but possibly more. That's the initial shock factor. And if you're ordering a steak or anything that needs to be cut into smaller pieces you might want to bring your own steak knife. Their steak knives aren't fit to cut air. They are more like a butter knife that dreams of being a steak knife. The other thing was seating, there were plenty of tables available and I asked if my husband and I could be seated in the corner and the hostess stated "that section is busy right now. You'll have to wait a half hour to get that (very much empty with three vacant tables surrounding it) table"

Great place to celebrate or dine out with friends. Food is always delicious and well played. No disappoints with drinks either. Just not sure how you run out of a dish on a Wednesday evening when only 1/3 of the restaurant is full.

5th visit. Always outstanding. Only 4 stars for service because the hostess didn’t alert our server that her table service had started ( we were there around 5:30) so we had to wait to be recognized quite a long time at the beginning . Server was great, though.will definitely return!

We have been to I.D. a few times and each time enjoyed the food, and tonight was no exception. We tried the Tempura green beans and Truffle fries as a starter, and had Octopus, Mushroom, Rissotto, Shrimp special, Salmon, Bolognese. All of our food was hot and delicious. The small plates come from the kitchen when they are done, not all together so you get a nicely paced meal and can enjoy each plate at it's height of preparedness. The only issue was the kitchen kept on forgetting our Bolognese. Our waitress checked twice and after I am sure being extra forceful with the kitchen we received it. She immediately told us it would not be on the bill and we would be getting 2 desserts for our inconvenience. Very well handled on her/their part and as you would expect to be treated. It was all delicious and we will go back.

The vibe at I.D. is very nice. Modern, but not overly hipster. Energetic but not too loud, so you can enjoy a nice conversation with your dinning mates.

What a fun, new experience for my husband and I! The decor was eclectic and dramatic. Our server, Richard, was fun and very knowledgeable. He made great drink recommendations that we happily went with. For our plates, we chose the bang bang shrimp, sweet potato gnocchi, and coppa margherita flatbread. All were fantastic! I especially enjoyed the gnocchi. For dessert, we went with the black forest, and I am still raving about it! This was enough food as neither of us had been completely famished. For most couples, I'd expect that 4-5 total plates would be the right amount. I.D. would be the perfect place for a group of 2-4, in my opinion. It is a little loud in the main dining room, so a small table is just right. Sharing the plates adds a dimension of adventure and fun to your dinner. We will be returning!
