There was a shortage of menus. We were seated for 10 minutes before a waiter came to our table. It was very loud which made it difficult to hear and understand the waitress who spoke with a thick accent. The veal marsala was too dried out.
All that having been said, it is our favorite for breakfast.

We ate dinner here after seeing good reviews on Yelp, and we were happy with our choice. Our Labor Day dinner was at 7 PM. We arrived about 10 minutes early and were asked if we wanted indoor or outdoor seating. We chose inside because the air was chilly, and we were seated promptly.

Our server was a lovely young lady, her service was attentive and appropriate.

My husband ordered a pineapple and tequila drink that had a jalapeno kick. Uummm, I almost had buyer's remorse except my Tito's blue with a ginger lime simple syrup was yummy too.

We started with a Caeser salad for me and a crab cake for him. The salad had nice croutons but I wish there was an option to add anchovies. The sauce accompanying the crab cake was tasty.

For dinner he had sumac dusted scallops and I had a swoon worthy branzano with zuchini, peppers and bacon having an agrodolce flavoring. We both would have licked our plates if we were home or if nobody was watching.

We were too full for dessert, though we did find the ice cream section and suddenly a small appetite revived. I had a pumpkin pie flavor and he had a peach crunch. Both were good.

Excellent meal and ice cream right next door provided dessert for our crew. Service was unavailable when we needed the check but was prompt thereafter.

The server and the restaurant is amazing I’ve been there many times and the food has been great. Was disappointed with the dish I ordered this particular night but the waitress took care of it and we very much appreciated what she did for us she was great

We live here year round and eat at IK often. One can count on good service, interesting and delicious food which is imaginative and nuanced, fresh ingredients, and pleasant surroundings. The outside patio is especially well done with gorgeous planter boxes providing screening from the parking lot.

My meatballs and butter noodles were tasteless. However, our spicy tequila cocktails were very good and different. I would like to try their breakfast. Cute place and nice location, able to park which is key.
