We had such an excellent experience at Isabelle’s for brunch. The pasta was fabulous, the egg dishes were wonderful. Our party raved about the experience. Highly recommend.

The food an service were very nice.
The only complaint was the type and volume of the music.
It was way too loud and not the type of music to enjoy while eating.
At one point the volume was turned down and 1/2 the restaurant let out a sigh of relief.
Within minutes the volume was turned up again.

Chose Isabelle’s for a double date dinner and so glad I did.. everyone was so happy with their meals! We each had a pasta dish and shared apps. In terms of the food, you can’t really go wrong. Highly recommend any of the pastas, homemade and cooked al-dente to perfection.

The service was subpar for Manhattan but probably had something to do with how busy they were, being a Saturday night and coming out of Covid restrictions. We sat outside where there’s a good number of tables. If you want to sit inside, it’s open to air. It took at least 20 mins for anyone to come over to our table once we were seated but the food very much made up for the service.

I thought the food was good and even great but the service is not there yet as it was slow and inattentive. I suggest the mushroom lasagna, the salmon and especially the cauliflower. Good drinks as well. Try the Negroni or margarita.

The outdoor seating was generous but the music was WAY too loud and smothered any ambience to be had. The food was a little too rich, but that is just a personal preference and not indicative of the restaurant itself. The service was outstanding, the employees were all kind, attentive, and a pleasure to talk with.

What drove me to leave this negative review happened when my family of five was leaving. A gentleman barged into the restaurant with no mask on, walked straight into the kitchen and returned with another gentleman also with his mask lowered to his chin. The two began having an intense and sometimes aggressive conversation in the front windows (street view) of the restaurant. Come to find out from one of the very embarrassed employees that the two unmasked men were one of the owners and the manager. My wife and I own service based businesses, I can’t tell you how mortified I would be to act like that around our employees. It’s COVID guys, come on.

Sat outside, heaters available if you get cold.
Good choices for all tastes.
I had a delicious Burrata appetizer. Prices a bit on the high side.

The ambience and service were outstanding. We sat outside and it felt like we were in Paris. The outdoor dining and lighting is romantic and the street was lively. The service was attentive especially given how busy they were. I wish I could say the food was as outstanding, my little gem Caesar was drenched with dressing and quite soggy. My lumache was good, but a bit on the bland side. It needed more of a punch of flavor. The wine the waiter suggested didn’t pair very well with either of our dishes. My friend had the shrimp, which she enjoyed but the country bread underneath was drenched in butter and she could not eat it. I would definitely try again, but would order different menu items.

They have excellent out door dining! Food was very good, roasted beets, cauliflower appies were a great way to start the meal. The entrees were delish, salmon, shrimp and short ribs. We will come back! Please note there is a 90 min Mx time you can dine - and they stick to it!

My dinner was perfection! I think I’ll rate this place a SCRUMPTIOUS 10! The quality and the freshness of the food was ever apparent in everyone’s dishes at our table. The service was impeccable as well. I’m just afraid they might get sick of seeing me there because it dances circles around everything else in the neighborhood and I’m not settling for anything less.

Excellent service and delicious food. Must visit when you’re in NYC, and if you live here ready, it should be your go-to for dinner out.
