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

The food was amazing. But because it is tapas and small portions, I felt it was a bit overpriced. The pork sliders and stuffed dates were AMAZING. They have a nice brunch with basics like pancakes as well (if you have finicky eaters with you).

Dining on a budget? Oh my, this lunch may be the highest quality for the best price in the entire area. The tapas plates are hearty and meticulously designed to really create a big meal for your lunch. Basically, it is 3 tapas for 10.99. That is a great price for a quality dining experience that always makes this a... More

Isabella's is a Tapas/Small Plates restaurant. They feature regular entrees as well. The food is just delicious. NEVER had a bad meal. I highly recommend this restaurant. Service has always been excellent. Friendly and helpful staff.

Happy hour at the bar consisted of a list of $3.75 beers & drinks (including red & white sangria) , $5 appetizers, free wings with each drink, and a small free buffet (salad, cole slaw, chips & salsa, a hot pasta, crackers & cheese). Two of the specials that night were paella and empanadillas, and both were delicious. Staff were... More

We went with friends who are friends of the owner, but I don't think that had anything to do with the great service we received. I believe "great service" is a given. While we had never been to a Tapas Bar we enjoyed trying small amounts of some very tasty, and interesting, dishes. The atmosphere was a bit noisy but... More
