You can enjoy Izzy's steak restaurant and if joined by non meat eaters they have many non beef choices that are also very good. They have a lively bar and yet you can dine and hear each other talk. I do enjoy the one in the city more, however this is really quite enjoyable and saves the drive and parking is easy and free at this San Carlos location.

Walking distance from the Fairfield Inn & Suites. No hours posted. Went at 3 pm and they were closed. Open for dinner and cocktails only it appears.

Went for dinner with some friends on the spur of the moment. We have been there before but at least a year or more ago.

We decided on the prime rib and it was tender and juicy and done as we asked. We split a warm goat cheese salad, deep fried goat cheese, walnuts, sliced apple and greens with a vinaigrette dressing which was very refreshing.

The main dish comes with two sides and they specialize in cream spinach and au gratin potatoes but there are other choices like carrots & onions, baked potato etc.

Key lime pie for dessert was very good.

Cost is above average but not steep for a good steak place. Mains are $25-35 plus apps and dessert so figure $40 plus.

Though Izzy's has been in our neighborhood for more than a year, we are not frequent steak eaters -- and we heard from friends that it was expensive -- so had never gone there. We received a dining coupon that would reduce the price and needed to get more iron in our blood for our next day's blood donation, so we decided, Why not steak at Izzy's?

We were not disappointed.

We went on a Wednesday night. It was very busy but since we had reservations we were seated right away. The dining area our booth was in was very nice -- clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The service was fast, friendly and efficient. The menu was very nice -- not too small and also not overwhelming. We chose the specials of the night -- a rib eye steak and a filet mignon. Both came with our choice of sides. Our coupon included two starters and a dessert. We also had a Manhatten and a two glasses of red wine,

The meal was all served in a friendly and timely manor. The Manhatten was wonderful; the wine was appropriately tasty; the starters and dessert were all very good; and both steaks were cooked to a perfect medium rare as requested. Best of all, both steaks were really tender and tasty!

Be aware of the price, though. With the starters, the steaks and the dessert covered by the coupon, we still had a bill of over $50.

Went to this place couple of times for dinner and the taste and quality of food never disappointed me.
Their chicken picatta and drunken shrimps are my favorite. Good selection of wines too.
