Second time at Isabelle's and they did not fail! Fantastic service, great vibe and the food was incredible. I had the same starter and main as I did during my first visit (I couldn't resist), but this time I added an addition by having the chocolate brownie for desert and it was sensational!

It was our 1st year wedding anniversary so we decided to go out midweek and celebrate the actual day. We choose issabels and upon arriving were very impressed with the venue. The staff from start to finish were super friendly and helpful, however we were there to eat and the food was a complete let down. I got decided on garlic butter prawns for starters and it arrived and there were about 5 tiny sized prawns in some sort of cream sauce that did not have a garlic taste at all...tasted more milky than anything and overall they were flavourless. At 13 euro I would have expected 4-5 large prawns for that price. I then had pepperoni pizza for main and I'm a huge lover of pizza However the dough was super tough to eat and I found it difficult to eat. I was super disappointed as I was expecting it to be a great experience. Food was a let down, however the venue and staff were great. Unfortunately I wont be going back.

Hi Jonathan, Thank you for taking your time to review us. We were very saddened to read of your recent disappointing experience in Isabelle's. Obviously we set ourselves higher standard that this and we have fallen short of those standards on this occasion. Obviously this is not an experience we wish to occur to guests dining with us. We hope you will change your mind and give us another chance. Kindest Regards, Isabelle's Team

We were a group of 7 friends. The food was very good. The service was attentive and friendly. One of the mains was served about 5 mins after the rest. When the plate was brought the waiter said it wouldn’t be charged. This was way over what you would expect from most Dublin restaurants. Only issue was we were beside a very noisy table, not the fault of the restaurant. We will definitely go back.

Great city ambiance - very chic - food was ok however...we did send one side back (we rarely do this) as it was horribly salty... they were most gracious about taking it back and said their normal chef was out... so we would give it another chance. Beautiful place, will give it another try. 😘

When I met my friend in Isabelle's for mid-week lunch I was surprised at how very quiet the restaurant was. Apart from one table of 8, there were just two other couples (who were just finishing their meal). Yet it was a full hour before we were served. I eventually asked for some bread (why is this not served upon seating?) and of course as soon as it (ciabatta, which I don't like but ate as I was ravenous) was placed on the table the food arrived. A senior waiter did at least have the decency to tell us that the steak was served with chips - the waiter who took our order suggested that we might need potatoes with it! The warm salmon salad was served with just greens, tomatoes and cashews, but it was utterly doused in dressing - the plate was still covered with it by the time I'd finished the food). So of course the salmon was tasteless and the greens were soggy. I'd looked forward to eating here but it was a real disappointment and I certainly won't be back.

The decor was nice but unimpressed with the menu. I felt the menu was limited. The prawn starter was nice but unfortunately my main of chicken was riddled in salt. We told our waiter all he said that he would relay it back to the chef! Too many nicer restaurants in the area with better choices on the menu. Won’t be in rush back

Service was great, nice ambience and loved the decor. The food was unfortunately very disappointing and the reason I would not come back. I ordered the arrabiata pasta dish which was bland and uninteresting - the sauce had no kick to it and by definition arrabiata is a spicy tomato sauce. It was basic incredible bland tomato sauce - no hint of garlic or chilli. The pasta shells were too large, undercooked in the middle and the sauce does not combine well with this sort of shape. Penne, rigatoni are better options. The bravas potatoes were extremely oily and therefore only ate the first layer. I would return for drinks and enjoyed the ambience & service but the food was very poor I’m sorry to say so I could not recommend on that front.
