Food. Service. Atmosphere. All excellent. This is one of the best restaurants in NE Pennsylvania. Lunch as well as dinner. Try the roast turkey at lunch, its not the usual deli slices most places sell. Its real, roasted turkey.

Went to Isabella Restaurant and Bar twice for business dinners. Atmosphere was better than average. Menu was high end with very high prices. Service was extremely slow and several people had to wait a long time for food to be served. Won't go back.

Let me start by saying my visit was part of a private dinner function, with a guest speaker for work. The dinner was paid for by the company who sent the speaker. There were approximately 30 people in attendance, so perhaps that affected our experience. This is a very attractive restaurant, both inside and out. The wait staff did a... More

We were in the area to see a concert on 10/22 (The show was awesome at the Kirby). We had checked on line for a nice restaurant and found the Isabella. It looked more like a bistro on their web site. It's with a athletic club in a building along the busy road. Greeting was fine, service was fine, food... More

Yeah, I need to find a better job to support my eating habits. If I could afford it, I would have lunch here every day. Went in to try some of the new fall menu. Amazing, I love it. I will find a reason to splurge and have lunch here again sooner than later.

we have been here several times and wonderful food, service, atmosphere. Whenever in town, we will eat here again. But why are they always half full at the most on weekends?

Restaurant conveniently located along a business road. We were traveling and spent a few days in the area and found this restaurant on trip advisor. Went in to celebrate an anniversary, but were not impressed with the menu or the service. It is pricy here, so we expected more. The appetizers were definitely better than the entrees, so my advice... More

This is a restaurant on a corner plot by two roads, but the food is surprisingly good. Frankly, way too much of it (huge main courses, enough to feed two people), but tasty, and good quality etc. Decor a bit basic, but nice staff.
