Gourmet Restaurant

Isabella is a small quaint gourmet restaurant. Well decorated with great service. Servers in black and white with ties. Good drinks ok wine list. For the most part the food is excellent. I have had a meal or two that were just ok. I would give it 5 stars except I think it can be a bit pricy. I... read more

On a recommendation from a friend, I brought a long time friend that was visiting to Isabella's. The drinks were delicious, one of the best Cesar Salads, our main course was a pasta dish with a delicious red spicy sauce with peas. I got the full size pasta dish while my friend had the small size. After eating the bread... More

I try to get here at least once or twice a month to treat myself to something special for lunch. I have been here at least twice since my last review. Everything here is top notch. I scored big points last month when recommending a lunch spot with my VP and Director. Ate vegetarian most recently. Excellent food, service and... More

Our experience dining here blows our experience anywhere else in the area out of the water. Truely a step above the rest. Every bite was wonderful.

we were there this weekend for a birthday party. We were in the back room and had a really large group. I had the Ahi tuna which was outstanding. It was so delicious I am still thinking about it. Everyone I spoke to loved their dinners. I recommend this restaurant for a dinner for two and also for a big... More

I asked the hotel for the best food around... They sent me here. Mind you, I travel to a lot of small places and don't always get great recommendations, so I take these with a grain of salt. I or to Isabella's and aside from 1 other couple, I was alone in the place. 8:30 on a Wednesday not all... More

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.
