This place has some really good plates, and some that fall flat. The highlights were the fried asparagus, the petit filet, and the fried goat cheese. The other plates we had were unremarkable at best, overcooked/heatlamped at worst.
Service was overall good, though the waitress did not seem to know much about the menu.
This restaurant is very crowded, with a long wait on the weekends, and exceptionally noisy. My wife and I had a hard time conversing across our table. The dining room feels very crowded as well - the tables are very close together.
Finally, this place is not cheap - the tapas are small and range from 5-10 dollars each.
If I could enjoy the few good tapas on the menu in a peaceful environment without having to wait forever, perhaps I would return to Isabella's, but as it is, there are pentoy of other places in Frederick I would rather eat.
