Came with friends. Ordered heaps and tried it all. The asparagus sticks were my fave. Expensive but we ate well and it was worth it. Interesting restaurant layout.

Good food. Good prices. Nice atmosphere. Go! You'll like it. I was there catching up with friends for about 3 hours, and no one tried to get us to leave.

Panko-covered asparagus with tomato aioli; Catalan bread with tomatoes and Sarrano ham, and bacon-wrapped dates in got cheese... sign me up!! And don't forget the sangria! Ask for the table by the fireplace.... great ambiance!

Order 2 or 3 tapas dishes because they are small. The food is fresh, uniquely prepared, and incredibly delicious. It's one of my favorite places in Frederick to eat. Can't wait to go back!

Isabella's is a Frederick tradition. The delicious cuisine is artfully designed and is not just a pretty plate, but delicious. Order several appetizers for the full experience.

We met some friends there one evening and had a delightful time. The food was delicious. Very happy for the most part, but some portions seemed a bit small. Would try it again.

We got the window seat so we could people watch on Market Street, which was a bonus. I had not been before so when I met friends there I let them order. We had a wide variety of tapas items. All were good! Red sangria was very good too!!

Hadn't been to Isabella's in quite some time. Whether at the bar or one of the two dining rooms, the atmosphere is nice. The service was very good. We (4 people) had a number of dishes, all good, some a bit smaller than they should have been (hey, its tapas!). The salmon was outstanding as were the meatballs. The braised... More
