Our first trip to Delafield and first time trying I.d. We loved it so much that we went back a second night in a row in order to try other things on the menu that we’d eyed the first night. In our two nights dining...there, nothing disappointed us; we loved the textures, flavors, balance, and creativity. Servings are generous, even though it’s touted as a shared-plates restaurant. We ordered tons of food because between the three of us we wanted to try a variety of things. Already planning what we’ll order on the next visit! Our excellent server both nights was Luke B.More

Very nice surroundings and very clean. But not worth the money. Service below average. Food above average but not exceptional.

This is a tapas type restaurant. The food was amazing. We had the ribeye for two and the meat was tender and flavorful. The side was two types of potato and onion. We had the chorizo Verde meatballs. They have a great variety and we...will return!!More

We absolutely love ID. The staff is the best, there’s never a long wait, service is off the charts and the food is always, always amazing. Recommend you sit at the bar in front of the open kitchen and watch the kitchen staff work their...tails off making amazing tapas style meals and deserts. The head chef will come talk to you and tell you what’s on his mind for menu changes and seek feedback. It’s just a 5 star big city outstanding dining experience in the lake country!More

We had a great dinner here with family and enjoyed the experience! We ordered the truffle fries, scallops, steak and burger. Two of us also enjoyed the Nashville Hot Chicken wedge salad. Although having actually eaten the original Prince's Hot Chicken in Nashville on more...than one occasion, I can say this chicken was not nearly as spicy, but it still had a great flavor. We also shared a couple of desserts which should not be missed!More

Great small plates locale. On the pricey side, but worth every penny. Casual easy going atmosphere. Our server was so knowledgeable...follow their suggestions! Highly recommend.

Locally sourced ingredients, amazing hospitality, a passion for food, and a knowledgeable staff make this hidden gem one of a kind. Located inside The Delafield Hotel, I.D. is worth the trip from Milwaukee or Madison when you're serious about food, drinks, and hospitality.

What I like about I.d. Is the unique selection of menu items. The items are seasonal and locally sourced. The flavors, quality ingredients as well as presentation of the dishes is outstanding. Prices are on the more expensive side but are worth it. Come here...willing to try something new and share with a friend or date.More

Small plates are the thing here, coming out in whatever order the kitchen dictates. Three of us dined here and were fine with 6 plates total. Ones that stood out were the grilled octopus, bang bang shrimp, salmon and pan seared foie gras. The atmosphere...is "rustic-chic" like their website claims, and the restaurant is located in the elegant (but also "rustic-chic") Delafield Hotel. Everyone working at both places were friendly and knowledgeable. The wine list and selections are not why you go to this place, so we "made do" with craft cocktails, which were great. A very nice dining experience without being at all pretentious.More

It was a beautiful summer evening so decided to head west from the Milwaukee area to enjoy a drink--and maybe dinner--somewhere outside. We could not have done better than I.D. , located in the Delafield Hotel! Good wine and craft cocktails. Interesting and appealing menu....Kelly, our server, the best. The icing on the cake: we timed it perfectly for a lovely sunset.More
