Mediterranean
From croissants at breakfast to cocktails at night, Isabel is an all-day restaurant and bar in the heart of Mayfair that radiates glamour and life. An imaginative food and drink menu derives from the essence and traditions of various South American-meets-Mediterranean cuisines. A friendly, fun and lively Latin vibe makes Isabel a memorable backdrop for all occasions.

In addition, hidden beneath the restaurant, is The Dragon Room, a discreet late-night lounge bar that surprises. Unexpected, eclectic, vibrant and beautiful, The Dragon Room is all about discovery with an exceptional and creative cocktail list of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Isabel is the sister restaurant to Casa Cruz in Notting Hill.

We dined for a late lunch and the service was very good. One of our party had gnocchi alla romana which was a very small portion, and was more like a side dish rather than a pasta dish. It was tasty, but not enough to constitute a main - I believe there were 8 pieces of gnocchi in it. We ate again shortly afterwards as we were still hungry.

I've had a wonderful birthday dinner thanks to the very kind attention of the team. Nabil, the Dragon room maitre, is very considerate.

Espresso and cappuccino same price which is a bit strange. Food was good but portions very small. Yoghurt with fruit was a small plate rather than a bowl

The place is amazing, very nicely decorated and warm. It is definitely overpriced, the food is good but not outstanding (the fish didn't taste wow and the roasted vegetables were half burnt). We were two at the table and the waiter served each one's other choice and we didn't really realised because we were talking and the dishes were similar, however it shouldn't happen when you pay such price.

Ambiance is great so is the cocktails. I had the best martini in the last few years. However food quality is very poor in my and my friends opinion. I had the penne bolognese. It was like a pasta served at hospitals. Very low salt and olive oil and standard barilla pasta. Burrata wasn't tasty either.

I’ve visited before for drinks and loved it, so figured I’d give a go for food.
Ambience and service was great but food - very disappointing! Especially given the price...
would recommend for drinks, but defo not for dining.

Food fine, ambiance fine, but the service was absolutely dismal. So, so slow; servers act surprised when after 20 minutes of waiting you ask them for a menu and confused when after another 20 minutes you finally flag them over again to order. It’s comical to watch because the ratio of staff to customers is about 1:2, yet a one-armed monkey could probably run the place more efficiently. On multiple occasions staff were standing around talking while are party or in cases the tables around us were awkwardly waiting to be attended to. London “luxury” in a nutshell - empty box with nice packaging.

Isabel Mayfair is a stunning restaurant -it has a french brasserie feel but a beautiful version with amazing attention to detail. I went for breakfast which was well priced and a good way to get a feel for the place, I'm now booked to go back for lunch as I was intrigued what the all day menu would offer.

Fantastic food and drink, service and atmosphere. Unfortunately a noisy table to two beside us became a noisy table of three and slightly ruined the evening- would have been nice if they were asked to move to the bar.

Average food, nice atmosphere if you can ignore some of the loud people taking videos with their flash on. Cannot seem to decide whether it wants to be a serious restaurant with competent food or a food stop before hitting the club for people who are willing to pay 30 pounds for a not so special plate of 4 raviolis but wants to post a story against the beautiful and busy backdrop. Might come again for a cocktail but not for the food.

Mediocre food and poor service. Service staff were vague about vegetarian options. My starter was not available, and my replacement soup came without the sour cream. I was recommended the roasted pumpkin salad - this was an almost raw, hollowed-out shell which appeared to be some sort of squash, not pumpkin. I honestly don't think anyone would eat it. I left the restaurant hungry - not a good sign.

The service was not the standard of the high price charged. The cocktail order was wrong, the steaks were not cooked to request, and the bill contained items that we did not order. Most restaurants do not hesitate to remove items from the bill under such circumstances, but not Isabel. Not great for c.£100 a head.

The interior is very nice, but everything else is a disappointment.

Service and atmosphere is wonderful but the food is very disappointing. Very small portions and some dishes are tasteless and uninventive. Beets with horseradish - not a good combination. Mozzarella with fig ... very amateurish for a place of this supposed level and fine dining cuisine. The potatoes are dry, bland and unimpressive! Overall not somewhere that I would return to given the blandness/ presentation of the food and price level

The environment and place was very cool.
Cool atmosphere. But the service was so bad ... actually there was no service. Our table was 35 minutes late and we could not get through the bar. The waiters had no overview and we should ask for menu, drinks, food and the bill. I would recommend it to a friend as a cocktail bar but not for anything else.

Excellent service and breakfast here. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. A good place to have a relaxing breakfast , it’s elegant, classy, and refined. I’m very happy with the wait staff who served us and also the receptionist who welcomed us. It was worth coming all the way here and having a good start of the day. We will definitely recommend it to our friends just as my friend recommended it to me. Thank you
