A fine dining place with a great athmosphere and a friendly staff plus excellent food. Mike Gladnick, the Manager, insures a great visit. He greets you at the door, escorts you to your table, checks on service and bids you good-bye. The pastrami (The Rachel) equals New York.

Good food, good service, but a couple of glaring deficiencies. First impression upon entering is that it's elegant, and it is, sort of. Everybody's nice too. Now the downside: small portions, limited menu, & overpriced. We were served one thin slice of bread, not a basket. I ordered pumpkin soup, they delivered lobster bisque, in spite of me telling them... More

Very pleasant, charming atmosphere, delightful staff. Truly Creative Fresh Food for a light dinner - from fresh oysters to fabulous Italian dishes, great steaks, or vegan/vegetarian offerings and more. If you read their website reviews they are spot on. Truly the best meal we have had anywhere! Isabella will be our go to every time we are in the area.

The hostess met us at the door and greeted us byname. Yes, we made a reservation. The server was pleasant and helpful. We ordered a glass of wine and an IPA. The menu was adequate, the food delicious. My wife had a small plate of scallops and I had the hanger steak with signature potatoes. One of the best meals... More

This restaurant isn't large, but the atmosphere is quite and calm and the food is absolutely delicious. My husband had the peach gazpacho and I had the lobster tacos--both great. My husband ordered the tuna with the coconut rice--absolutely fantastic. I wanted to steal it. We would definitely come back.

Modern, upscale atmosphere combined with great food and excellent service. Wait staff was friendly and prompt, very accommodating to menu substitutions. Reservations may be advisable on weekends or for special events as the restaurant is not large.

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.
