    This location is struggling with a lack of servers. they seem to cater to large parties, but appear to do the bare minimum when serving small tables. Took almost an hour to receive our meal. Server offered no since of concern about how long we waited. She advised us she was the bartender and would try to get to us when she could. Unacceptable.

    This was our first visit and could not have been more pleased. We had the salmon and the chicken and waffles-which were all delicious. The server was attentive and knowledgeable. The only thing I would change is the ambient music, but that is just a matter of personal preference. We will be back!

    First time at this restaurant and we will definitely return! Food was fantastic - portion sizes were generous! Our group tried the fried chicken, beef short rib, blackened red snapper, and seafood pasta. Everyone loved their choices - the Sausage & Pimento Mac N' Chees was a big hit too. The service was top notch!

    Service was attentive and detailed. Food had a nice appearance, but redfish with orzo was bland and overly creamy. Fried chicken was even blander (not a fan of high salt, but this tasted like no salt) and broccolini side dish was burned. Short rib dinner was best, in fact excellent. Overall disappointing. Hope it turns around.

    Traveling on vacation, found this gem. Wow. I had a manmosa, sooooooo delicious. Short ribs hash, chicken and waffles, dolce banana pancakes. Wow. Freshly made each dish from scratch, we can’t wait to come back to Jacksonville for another vacation, just to come here. Thank you for your hospitality Edit. My daughter forgot her Invisalign case and the restaurant tracked us down. That is beyond customer service. Thank YOU so much.

    We chose to sit on the outdoor deck with a reservation at 5:30. There are fans, and it was very comfortable until the sun moved and then we were in direct sunlight. It was not a busy time from what we could tell (only one other table being served outside), but the service was very slow, taking at least 15 minutes to bring my drink. Also, practically had to find the waiter to ask for more water or anything extra. The server was very nice and friendly, but did not seem to care about the wait times.

    Lovely brunch with my brother and sister-in-law today. First, the coffee was excellent and for me, that set things off in a good way right away. I had the avocado toast and my husband had the quiche. My brother had a chicken sandwich and my sister-in-law had the French toast . The food was all fresh, hot and good. The service friendly, polite and attentive. IdaClaire we will be back!

    We had a reservation for Mother's Day at 7 pm. We sat at 7:15. The waitress greeted us at the table and announced they were out of fried chicken, grilled chicken, catfish, mashed potatoes, etc. so the selection of food was VERY limited. The service was slow. I won't be going back for dinner or big occasions.

    My kids took me to celebrate Mother’s Day. We had a reservation, we arrived slightly early and were sat 25 mins after our reservation time despite having open tables. We ordered drinks and appetizers and then were told they were out of about half of the dinner menu items. Our dinner arrived about an hour and a half later. The food was good and they credited apps but horrible planning and organization and super slow service.

    There were six people in our party. The server was very attentive and pleasant. Everyone at our table commented that their food was bland and lacked flavor. My meal, although ordered "medium" was overcooked and very dry. I brought this to the server's attention and he agreed with my assessment. We did not withhold gratuity from the server because he did a good job, but I was disappointed that my meal was not discounted. We've been to Ida Claire's before and were very pleased, so this negative experience surprised all of us. With all the options in Jacksonville we probably will not return for a while but I think we will eventually return in a year or so and give them another opportunity.

    We dined here on Mothers Day and have been a good handful of times beforehand. Always had a great experience! This time they were not prepared for the holiday rush. When we arrived and seated we were told they had no high chairs for our 18 month old twins and offered no solution until I asked what they suggested we do. Our food took 1.5 hours. They forgot one of our apps. The server was overwhelmed which we understood. But the overall attitude was annoyance and not accommodation. The server did comp our drinks and apps. We will be back! But not on a holiday. Ha!

    Mother’s Day dinner out. Three in our party. Check-in went fine. Hostess said she would text us when our table was ready. About 35 minutes later I noticed OpenTable changed our status from “checked in” to “dining” but we had not received a text saying our table was ready. I talked to the hostess, she couldn’t explain it but had us seated immediately. Drinks and apps came out quickly. Waitress very nice. An hour later waitress came and let my wife know they were out of mashed potatoes and would she like to choose a different side dish. About 15 minutes later our entrees arrived. My plate of fried chicken was lukewarm, wife’s grilled chicken was charred black and over cooked, sin’s burger was fine. Mine and our son’s Mac & cheese side dish didn’t arrive for another 15 minutes. When it came out it was under cooked Al dente and bland. Waitress was wonderful, apologetic, and did what she could to make our dining experience as pleasant as possible.

    We reserved for a Mother’s Day brunch. Upon being seated our table was not clean (sticky). Our server mentioned that “someone didn’t clean the table last night.” Not cool to make a statement like that in front of a customer. The cocktails were pricey and very weak. My son’s meal came out cold (it was eggs, ham etc.). All others in our party like their food. Our server was very helpful.

    Had 815 reservation, was about 15 minutes earlier. Told the Host we would be at the bar. At 830pm everyone had been seated. I went up to a hostess and she said she didn't know where we went. They then sat us and the meal took 1 hour do to wait for food, restaurant was only about 50% full. The apps were great, the entrees were not. For the value, I would only go for drinks and apps.
