You can usually tell when a restaurant is good by the wait to get in! Our party arrived at 6 p.m. and was told there would be a 45-1 hour wait! As we had planned to dine there and they don't take reservations (except for a party of 6 or more), so we decided to take our chances and wait... More

Great guacamole, fish tacos and the orange blood margarita is a must! The mushroom quesadilla was a little salty but the chicken enchilada was delicious.

I find Isalita expensive for my budget but when I do pay the $ for their food I am always satisfied. I love the lamb! Mmmmm

Isalita is hands down my favorite A2 eatery. The food is always exciting, and the margaritas are the best in town for the $ ... don't believe Tio's claim!! Frozen blood orange or just house is the greatest. And the decor is neat :D

I always enjoy Isalita but this time everything we ordered was just way too salty. We ordered the Mushroom Quesadillas, Chicken Enchiladas and the Guacamole/Chips for the Appetizer (that was the best). Unfortunately, this will make me less likely to want to go back.

Isalita is busy. The food is tasty, fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is cozy. Key Lime was divine

I'm a long time Ann Arbor native and haven seen many restaurants come and go. This one is truly my favorite. Must eats are the candied pineapple goat cheese pixto, patatos bravos, Brussels sprouts with pistachios. Sit at the bar and ask for the bar drink menu. Earth wind and fire will amaze with its taste and Pyrotechnics.

My friend and I love coming here for happy hour because of their great margaritas! I haven't had a dish at Isalita that wasn't good either! If you are looking for Mexican in Ann Arbor, Isalita is a must!

This is a fun place to go, the food is great, the margaritas amazing and the bartenders are personable; what else could you ask for?
