Isabella’s defines Upper West Side dining with reliable market-fresh offerings for the Mediterranean palate. From birthdays to celebratory brunches, many a memories have been made at Isabella’s and continue unfolding at this “oasis for an unrushed, delicious meal,” according to Zagat. When the weather’s pleasant, grab a sidewalk seat in the café for a classic New York Brunch filled with people-watching, benedicts and Bloody Marys. Indulge your sweet tooth in a Chocolate Bag, a dessert staple that’s been on the menu since opening day!

I like the atmosphere and the staffs are well trained. Tried the breakfast burrito and love that they used well selected chorizo that give the right amount of spicy to the dish.

“Mixing with the locals @ Isabella's”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

It was fun to get away from the hustle and bustle to a quieter locale where we did not see other tourists but families and locals. Food was served quickly and very tasty. Great atmosphere.

“Overpriced and overrated”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Had brunch there today out of curiosity after not having been there for many years. Sat a crammed table inside with little wiggle room on either side. $14.00 for a paltry Belgian waffle served with about 3 strawberries? Come on, people! My friend's mushroom omelette, which was very good, was served with ice cold home fries. We didn't even bother to send them back. We just won't ever eat there again. Better brunches can be had at local neighborhood diners on the both the East and West Sides, and that's where I'll be going in the future.
