I recently went to Isabels as part of a group of 8 celebrating a birthday. This is the third time I have visited Isabels and the experience has always been good.
It is the service of the staff that really sets off the restaurant. The waitress explained that we could mix and match any of the items off each menu, even the discounted ones, but we all decided to order off the A La Carte. When some of the party had queries about the sauces that accompanied some of the dishes, it was explained that we could change any sauce, ie red wine for mushroom etc if we wanted to, it seemed nothing was too much trouble.
The food when it arrived was good, it is not the best food I have eaten, but tasty. One of our party had the fillet steak ordered rare, but when it arrived it was well done. Once pointed out, it was immediately removed with an apology and a completely new dish was quickly made up and bought out.
The one thing I would mention is that Isabels do not seem to have changed their menu in years! Obviously they do not want to mess with a winning formula, but it would be nice to see something different on the A La Carte menu every so often. Also the menu is the largest I have ever seen in a restaurant. I would have thought they must have difficult carrying so much stock to enable them to serve every dish.
Overall I would be very happy to return to Isabels, It was full of customers when we went on a Wednesday night, obviously they are doing a lot right to get such loyal customers.
