Very nice – I think this is really nice place. Food ok and it's a nice atmosphere. Had a nice fun time with friends here.
a touch of European charm in NYC. – Went to Isabella's during the summer for brunch and it was fantastic. Aside from waiting 30 minutes for a seat (which was worth it), my fiance and I had the opportunity to sit outside in the cafe-style seating and enjoyed an incredible brunch special consisting of mimosas, coffee, and the most delicious eggs benedict I've ever had. More importantly, the waitress was incredibly friendly and helpful and the ambience was perfect. Will definitely return soon!
Great spot that has wide versality... great for brunch or dinner:) – Went for brunch yesterday for the first time, though had previously dined at Isabella's for dinner and loved it.
Brunch did not disappoint at all...though this is quite a popular spot, the wait was not too long.
Great food, service, indoor and outdoor dining options (outdoors is great for brunch) and proximity to the park.
Fantastic! – This place is great. My boyfriend and I went there for our first date two years ago and ever since we have been going back, and going back, and going back! The bread basket is really great. The tuna is wonderful! Goat cheese salad with walnuts is very light and a great starter. I personally like to sit by the window when they have it all open - but in the winter I love sitting upstairs because it feels more secluded (my preference). LOVE IT!
Best Brunch in town! – Best value and fabulous food. Every time I go I order the eggs benedict which comes with home fries and an alcoholic beverage. The Bloody Mary is perfect and the basket of breakfast breads is a great starter. This is my favorite brunch spot and the only place worth the wait.
Fav restaurant in the Upper West Side... – This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Upper West Side because of it's great service and wonderful food. The wait staff is great, leaving you feeling attended to but not cloying. The only problem is getting a table, so make sure to make a reservation.
Exceptional service and food!!!!! – My friends and I went to Isabella's during our recent trip to NYC. We usually go there several times a year but this year the food (the bass) and service were exceptional. Our dinner was excellent, the staff was wonderful. Our waitress, I think her name was Megan was very helpful and kept the drinks coming. This was one of our best dining experiences in NYC. We will absolutely come back again.
Terrible Service – My boyfriend and I recently had dinner at Isabella's. We both agreed that the food was decent but that the service was just terrible. We had to wait 30-45mins after we were already seated to get our orders in, waited what felt like an hour to get our food, was not given utensils with our dinner (had to wait for that too), and had the wrong dessert brought to our table and never remedied even after we brought it to the waiter's attention. We're normally 20%+ tippers but that night was the first time we actually gave less than 10%. Outrageous, overrated, and definitely not recommended.
Delicious food, presented beautifully – We made the compulsory Saturday night reservation for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed. The restaurant is an oasis from the hectic life outside. Our choice of a table on the second floor was perfect for a quieter, leisurely dinner. It was available on time, the staff was pleasant and unobtrusively attentive. My gazpacho was light with a perfect blend of spices in a watermelon base, perfect fare to cool down on a hot night. The Chilean sea bass entre was one of the best I've had. Although the restaurant is not recommended for children, the children we encountered near our table were well behaved--kudos to the considerate parents who bring their children here.
The worst service ever – The people that work at this restaurant are plain old rude and not nice. I would not recommend this place to my enemies.
