It looks they have revised some of their dishes in comparison to my previous visits . The food was absolutely amazing . And portion sizes were sufficient if you wanted a starter , main and dessert . Starters and Desserts arrived fairly quickly but mains took abit longer . They offered free drinks to compensate for the longer lead time on the main. Ambience amazing . Lovely night , lovely experience , good service and excellent food .

Thank you Isabelles :)

Nice food but had no oatmilk for coffee and also had no waffle for brunch. Couldn’t swap one item for another on brunch menu. Disappointing

Apologies for the lack of Oatmilk Orls, we have made sure there will always be oat/soy/almond milk in stock from now one. Just in regards to not swapping items - I understand your frustration however its difficult to do almost 300 covers for Brunch when tables make their own alterations to dishes it really does slow down cooking time for everyone Thanks again for the feedback Isabelle's

Came for dinner Friday night, food was absolutely amazing :) within a couple of minutes of being seated & given menu, Danny had our drinks order taken and brought down to us. Our food was excellent, didn't have to wait long between courses but not rushed either, the goats cheese Panna cotta starter was certainly different but really good, my fiance got the arrancini and pepperoni pizza and they were amazing! :) dessert took a little longer to come out but honestly we didn't even notice, Danny came over & apologised for the wait but they were worth it! Excellent service, excellent food can't wait to come back!

Isabelle’s is the gift the keeps on giving. Everything from start to finish was 10/10. I ate a delicious pasta dish, each bite was a delight. Wonderful ambiance. Sleek wine. Top class service. A true treat for a Wednesday evening girly catch up. Cannot wait to return!

We ate on the outdoor terrace. It is a lovely environment - private and cosy (great heaters) and feels a safe space in context of Covid.
We had lovely service, very good food, and a very enjoyable evening.

I remember this restaurant to be good food and good ambience but this time, while the ambiance was still good, the food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Kudos to the chef, probably used the looong lockdown to up the game but was seriously shocked by how good the food had become.

Food was really good! Staff were lovely. The only slight issue is that both doors were open and it left the restaurant very cold but we asked to move tables and we were without any hassle, and our food needed to be “delayed” due to the busy kitchen but the manager told us so we were aware and we were happy to wait. Always good to tell customers around those issues

Service was very slow, we got our dessert menu but had to chase down the waitress but ended up getting someone else to take the order but then we're rushed to finish our drinks because they needed the table.

Flexibility with the menu is really needed. Swapping of items should not be so difficult.
Overall expensive for what we got but the food was good

Generally the food was as good as always. But the pepperoni pizza was a bit bland and very short on jalapeños.

We got my daughter the ice cream and caramel sauce off the kids menu. The sauce was awful and I was surprised.

Very friendly waiter.

Lovely lunch with my darling daughter on the terrace at Isabelle's, and pleasantly surprised by the delicious starters I had - one was cabbage with pesto (doesn't sound promising, but was very good) and one was arancini with ... um .... I'd have to check the menu, but it was yummy too and well presented. Good service, I like the ambience. Not overdone or fussy. Get new menus my only quibble! Shabby menus always look bad, and these days you wonder who handled them. Oh, and a good fizz by the glass would be appreciated.

Ask for the back area - we were seating in the front and there's no atmosphere as its like a waiting area and should really be only used for guests awaiting a table. Service slow but friendly. Food really good.
