Delicious food, awesome serviceWe went here over Mothers Day weekend and had Domingo as our waiter. He was great! The food portions are not too big and not too small. We shared the steak, risotto and potato wrapped fish. Flavorful and delicious. I would definitely come back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightWe were running late for our reservation but they were still very accommodating. The service was excellent and it was a perfect place for date night. We will definitely be back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBig party last minute reservationWe had a large group of 13 and Isa was able to accommodate us at the last minute. The waiter was amazing and recommended items that were restaurant favorites without us even having to ask. The menu lists that they have small plates and entrees. We were a little nervous at first because of the pricing but in the end we all shared a few of the small plates as appetizers (which one plate was shareable by 4 people) and then each ordered an entree and the amount of food was perfect. The wine was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu says all dishes areThe menu says all dishes are meant to share but entree portions can be enough for one diner, appetizers are ok for two depending on dish.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMService and Food are wonderful.Service and Food are wonderful. I brought out-of-towners here and they were still talking about the experience the next day!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIsa is outstanding. We hadIsa is outstanding. We had a group of 8 girls for a fun night out. Excellent wait staff. Patio tables are crammed together a bit but the food was amazing. We shared several plates and that is the way to go!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very well taken careWe were very well taken care of on what appeared to be a very busy night. The food was terrific and the portion sizes were perfect. The restaurant has a funny policy of serving food as it's ready, which means that your first course may not arrive at the same time as your companion's first course. They say that this is because the dishes are meant to be shared, but the portion sizes are really just right for one.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great cocktails,Great service, great cocktails, and the food was perfect.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIsa was phenomenal. The pricesIsa was phenomenal. The prices were amazingly resonable, on par with chain restaurants, but the quality and sourced ingredients were leaps and bounds beyond what you get for the same money else where. You will be hard pressed to find a restaurant with the same character, unique menu items, and wonderful staff. A wonderful experience, and we will surely return, all 8 of us.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIsa Restaurant - "The place to go"Isa has never disappointed. It's always one of our favorite "go to" places for special occassions, get togethers, and/or just somewhere to go for a delicious meal with excellent service. The servers are always friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and always accommodating! Will definitely return!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIsa!!Isa is a very charming place. We loved the feel of the enclosed back patio. And the food was really incredible. Everyone loved the Sea Bass wrapped in crispy thinly sliced potatoes, the sweetbreads, the crab salad, and of course the brioche specials;) The service was great and considering our overall experience, the bill was very reasonable.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIsa never disappoints....Never fails to disappoint. Service and food are always spot on! The ingredients are always fresh and tasty. The menu is value priced.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMhappy ^__^food was great .. service was great
definitely would come back4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Marina ResturantI've been here twice and I can't express enough at how great the food is. The scallops, mussels and seabass are cooked perfect4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took friends from FranceWe took friends from France to Isa and had a very nice dinner. Everyone ordered from the tasting menu and we shared everything, so got lots of tastes. We agreed that the spaghetti with truffles, tomatoes and olives was perfectly prepared and delicious. The halibut was excellent, as were the flat iron steak and the chicken. We were less enthusiastic about the squid - the sweetness just didnt work - and the mussels, which is a tough dish to share. Since the restaurant bills itself as family style, I think a better way to share that dish needs to be found.
The patio out back is popular but we thought too noises, so we opted for the front and it was good v4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. HostedGreat food and service. Hosted my family from out of town and they loved it. I'll be back soon.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI went here with my boyfriendI went here with my boyfriend for dinner last week. We had a LOVELY time, even though the patio was a bit noisy. We had the prix fixe menu and loved all of our selections. (We also thought it was a great price for all of the food that we received!) I have several food allergies and they were able to make special accommodations to ensure that I had a healthy yet delicious meal. We will definitely be back!!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHaven't had a meal as goodHaven't had a meal as good as our dinner at Isa's in a LONG time. Fit for a foodie. Everything from the awesome bread to the dessert was sooo amazing, and I'm a picky one.

They were very communicative and patient. People in my party kept cancelling so at the last minute when we got there I had to tell them we were 2 less than they were expecting. They quickly rearranged the table. Our waiter Dean was SO kind and very helpful. We had a party of 9 and they were constantly checking on us, taking away empty dishes, giving us clean plates. It was a WONDERFUL experience!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest sevice I have ever experiencedBest sevice I have ever experienced at Isa.
