The food of the breakfast was very bad. In the restaurant there were a few other people, it was quiet empty, but we still had to wait 25 min for our coffee. It did not meet our expectations, it was very disappointing.

Thought the quality of the food was very good liked the style of the restaurant and the decor staff where polite and friendly. The food was expensive and small portions but very good quality. First champagne glass was a bit flat but I would definitely go back and try it again

Not impressed with the service. Went for dinner with a friend. After our starter, we were served the mains. My friend got her pasta and only my side dish came. The waiter mumbled something and walked away so we assumed that my chicken was coming. After waiting for about 2 mins, we checked again and the waiter said it was coming. I told my friend to start before the food gets cold. My friend had eaten half of her pasta and my chicken was still not served. Then the manager came and said something happened in the kitchen and they needed another 7 mins. Wasn't impressed as I have waited for about 10 mins since my friend's pasta was served so I just told the manager to cancel my order. Definitely not going back there anytime soon. The only consolation is that we were not charged for the pasta and the side dish.

Excellent from word go. Booked a table for an anniversary and was not disappointed. From superb food to wonderful wine. The service was quick without being rushed. The scallops cooked to perfection. A lovely atmosphere and would recommend to anyone who is looking for somewhere a little bit nicer than your average restaurant.

We order beet salad, roasted chicken and doughnuts. All were not available and we were forced to order other undesired items from
Menu. Why? Friday night at 9:30. Someone must order the grocieries a bit more
Efficiently !!! Otherwise , food was decent.

Organization ZERO. 0. MINUS 10. DISGRACE!

Food great 10/10. Service OK.
We made a reservation 3 weeks in advance. It was my boyfriends bday and we were planinning to go down for 1 drink more.
1- they told us u can go at 00h. And we went.
Then the lady downstairs said -u can't be here. 2- Maybe u can come down around 01h.
3- Manager came and said u cant go down at all tonight.
And as for my special request-bday cake or cookie for bday- we got nothing.

It was our first time trying isabel. It was for a casual dinner.
We loved the food and the service!
We had the pepper fed chicken and the ravioli which were yummy.
The side dishes were amazing ( sweet potato, broccoli , and the corn) .
The waiter was so nice and helpful. He recommended a really nice white wine (pouilly fume )
Would like to go again.

The restaurant has a very elegant and nice ambience. The service looks quite good and they are very kind and nice to customers. However, my friend and I heard the staff at the entrance fighting over some problems and this was in front of more clients and us. Also, one of the waiters was too intimate and a bit too intense, they should be more professional and less chatty, I think. Especially when the client is not willing to chat.
