The service was great, the peach sangria delicious, the baked brie was yummy, the scallop and sausage paella was delicious and enought for 2 to share and the flourless chocolate cake with hazelnut ice cream superb. We had a marvelous food/service experience!

Hubby and I did a weekend in Frederick, MD to celebrate our anniversary. We showed up around 8:45 (they close at 10 on Sat). We've been to a similar restaurant and it was not as enjoyable. Isabella's has a wide variety of small plate choices....More

Excellent tapas, the paella was good but the home made Sangaria made the meal. Good service, outstanding dessert! We would definitely come back on our next trip to Frederick. A must if you like Spanish food!

Stopped for a quick lunch at Isabella's. Menu has something for everyone. Sangria specials were particularly great on a warm afternoon. Staff were courteous and very helpful with suggestions. Outdoor seating and pet friendly (outdoors). Reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Why only 4 stars?.....The price. The food is pretty darn good and the desserts are to kill for, but the price is on the rather high end. This seems to be an issue with Tapas-like restaurants. Many of them price the small tapas style plates...More

I love, love this place. Been twice, tried their 3 for $10 lunch special on both occasions. Their food plating is to die for. They make Asparagus look sexy! Gotta take pictures on my next visit.
