One of Our Go To Places

We'll probably go here again for my birthday dinner. We're especially fond of the asparagus. If we were rich, we'd go here at least monthly.

Went here with a friend for lunch, the food was delicious. It was a little pricey but the quality was great. Try the asparagus fries, they are a signature dish at the restaurant and totally worth it.

Isabellas had great food and a good variety of choices. It was our fist time trying tapas and was a great dining experience. The only downside is that my credit card # was stolen and a few days later I had $1K + in fraud charges. Thankfully my bank caught it right away.

My wife and I have been on a couple of date nights at Isabella's. Isabella's is in the center of downtown Frederick. There is a relatively cheap public parking garage right around the corner. The food has always been good and because the plates are small, you can experience several tapas dishes. My wife and I order several selections and... More

We typically eat at Isabella's several times a year, however, this is our first visit this year. They have great food and their base tapas are great. A typical meal for us runs around $60 without drinks. It's worth having lunch if you never had tapas before or Sangria. Enjoy!

Isabella's has been a go-to place for my boyfriend and me for several years now. The food is delicious and consistent. The specials are fresh and creative. The wait staff has always been very helpful when trying to make decisions for which dish to try next. The bacon-wrapped chorizo-stuffed dates are a MUST!! :-)

Read an ad about it as having a happy hour - what a find. Had a small set -up but the appetizers/tapas were first rate. The fried asparagus has got to be one of a kind. Also enjoyed the bacon wrapped salmon. Bartenders Jason and Rick were cordial and helpful. This will be a regular stop when in Frederick

Once again we enjoyed our meal and the amazing service we received at Isabella's. My sister and I shared a tapas special (10.99, three tapas choices). The highlight of course being the Asparagus Fries. But loved the other two as well. My sister was so pleased when the waiter brought simple syrup for her ice tea sweeter. Brilliant!
