The food was incredible! We started with the caprese salad which was the best my wife and I have ever had. We split the ribeye, truffle fries and brussels sprouts, all which were amazing! A delicious eating experience!

Timing of small plates was a little too fast and it took a while to get one drink but the food was fantastic and service was very friendly. We live ID and will return.

Our server was great! My order came out wrong but it was fixed quickly. Restaurant was well spaced for social distancing. Overall it was good, just felt a little overpriced for essentially eggs and bacon.

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.

Great experience. Having dined at Id several months ago, I was not sure what to expect. Overall excellent food, efficient and friendly service, and comfortable environment. Also had a "mock tail" which was excellent, and happy to have the non-alcoholic option.

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.

The food was amazing, as always, but for the first time our service was terrible. The waiter was very kind, but hardly came to the table. Expos delivered both rounds of food we ordered, a manager brought us a second round of drinks, and we had to ask for our check from the manager and pay at the host stand. It was out of the ordinary for them, but we still had a great time!

Outstanding food , multiple smaller shareable plates which in general had more in them than on prior visit , easily shared among 4 people . The prime rib plate, scallops , seafood risotto and truffle fries all great . Delicious desserts . Excellent service . Some live music a bit later in the evening also . This was our 5th time there , Definitely will go again .

I was excited to try this place for my birthday. We haven’t been out to restaurants due to COVID but thought I would try this out. First of all, I will start with the food was awesome but did have quite a bit of anxiety since we walked in and the workers were not wearing masks. The tables were a good distance apart but I couldn’t understand why the waitress wouldn’t have a mask on. My husband went to use the bathroom before we left and the soap was out. Just an over sight, I’m sure, but we used hand sanitizer and hurried out of there. I will go back when things return to a new normal.

We joined another couple for dinner on Friday night at ID. We enjoyed the experience overall, the wine choices were excellent and the food was excellent as well. We have been at I.D. in the past and won’t hesitate to recommend to others. The food is always consistently done well with creative flair.

Food was great as usual, but Covid-19 dining will take some getting used to and the service was very disjointed. Not the usual experience at this restaurant. Coffee was served without sugar or cream, or the offer of either. When asked for both, only sugar came. Had to ask again for cream. No salt and pepper was brought. Totally understand why salt and pepper shakers aren't on the table, but offer an alternative. Maybe bring packets or have wait staff grind some on to your food. Water glasses were brought with water in them, but no refills. We noticed other tables were given a bottle of water so you could refill your own glass. We had to ask for one. Last, multiple wait staff visited our table to deliver our food, sugar, creamer, water, drinks, and to clear. We had visits from at least 5 people. Maybe cutting that down to 2 would be prudent with covid-19, especially since wait staff at this restaurant wasn't wearing masks.
