    Very nice vibe to the place, the staff lovely though the service a bit slow (possibly due to the timing of our meal which was mid-afternoon); the food was great; the wine list very highly priced with no options for cheaper lines or house carafes etc. Overall though a really nice place, a great venue for the area.

    The service was lacking. Long wait, no check-in to see whether I needed anything. Terribly overpriced.

    Food was lovely as were the drinks. My favourite thing about the place was the music - it was different and unique and created a particular vibe.

    A lovely meal, we had no wine, service was good but felt the bill was more than expected, considering we’d had no alcohol.

    I didn’t think the food was that interesting for the price we paid. £100 for a bland chicken breast, a fish fillet and some fries and two bottles of sparkling water seems pretty outlandish. The staff forgot our order of fries and wouldn’t pass the table to see if we needed anything. The restaurant was pretty empty as well, so it’s not as if they were rushed off their feet. I don’t recommend.

    Service was extremely poor. I called an hour before to ask for cocktails in the bar and they assured me the library bar was available. Surprise, surprise when I got there, no seats available. Then got seated in the entrance (nobody should be sat there) and would rather be seated near the kitchen. I asked for a another table, and waiter said no, regardless other tables remained empty until I left. Waiters badly trained. Asked for a bottle of water when I asked for our cocktails. then ordered dinner, and wine. I ask 4 times for the water. I had drunk half bottle of wine by the time it came. My cocktail glass stayed in the table - even if I asked for it to be removed twice. Waiter hits the bottle of wine in the table and in the glasses whilst serving. food almost cold. chicken, really disappointing. Tuna tartar tasty but portion extremely small. I really don't get it. more over because service upstairs is MUCH better. I know Isla is more easy going restaurant. But somethings are just wrong.

    Great food, Quail Mole was amazing. Looking forward to it next visit. P.S. Love the funky lift music.

    We were booked in for a birthday meal for too. Whilst our server was great the food was very disappointing. The oysters were small and watery, the red chicken was extremely tough and chewy and the fish was really salt. The broccoli was ok. Overall a disappointing experience. However the restaurant decor is beautiful!

    We didn't have a good experience at Isla. Drinks upstairs at Sweeties beforehand, were good as was the service. This was not at the case at Isla. The only good thing was the Israeli red wine which was delicious - unfortunately the food was very average and the service was really poor. Before we ordered, the we were approached about 4 times by one of the waiting staff to see if we were ready to order, that would have been fine - had it not been the only time that anyone approached the table without being asked after that point. After we finished our starters, which were very average but fine, we sat with dirty plates until the main courses were served. Rather than pause, clear our plates and then serve the main courses, the mains were put on the table and the starters cleared at the same time. Fine for a cafe, not great for a restaurant of this level / price point. Our main courses came and were pretty disappointing. Chicken with ricotta dish was a hot piece of chicken on some cold crumbled ricotta - so yes, there was chicken and there was ricotta, but it was reasonable to assume that the dish would be more than the ingredients placed separately on a plate. The tomato panzanella salad was by far the best dish we had, but included an optional portion of halloumi that was cold and rubbery. At no point did anyone ask how our food was, despite there being 6 staff members stood in 3 groups chatting, all within 4 metres of our table. When we finished eating our very below par food, we once again sat with dirty plates for about 10 minutes, until we eventually had to stare at one group of staff until someone came over and asked "Can I get you anything", so had to point out that we'd finished some time ago - again there was no question about the food, even though my friend left about 2/3. We could have actively complained and we didn't, because we were hungry and it wasn't inedible - but 100% won't visit again and definitely wouldn't recommend.
