A word from Isalita
Our menu of Mexican small plates is inspired by the market culture of Mexico. Comida de calle - street food is integral to the social fabric and cultural rhythms of Mexico.
Isalita is 100% Pure Mexico: generosity, hospitality, and enjoyment of life. We take great care to authentically showcase the culinary traditions of Mexico, with our own unique style of flavors.

We take advance reservations for parties of 6 or more. Please note that not all of our large tables are displayed online.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was delicious. They recommended 2 tapas/person, but we were full on even less than that. The hostesses were incredibly friendly, the waitstaff was helpful and engaging. A fun, vibrant atmosphere to take my family when they came to visit."

  • "I had hoped for a special birthday dinner but that was ruined when we were seated in the basement next to the loudest group of college students in Ann Arbor. The food was good but we couldn't wait to get out of there and spare our eardrums."

  • "The food is wonderful in both flavor and presentation. If you are a big eater it could get expensive. We there for restaurant week, $28 a person was the deal meal. Think it's a great place for groups. It's very noisy. We had a group with a baby sitting next to us. Not a place for quiet conversation."

  • "Went for restaurant week for my first visit. Everything was great, from the service to the food. Great dinner choice in Ann Arbor. Interesting menu items, we dined family style and I can honestly say I liked everything we ordered. Host, server, bartender were all accommodating and friendly."

  • "The course combinations offered during restaurant week were great as always. The goat barbacoa tacos were exceptional - perfectly done and succulent. As was one of my favorites - the chorizo queso fundido. The fun addition for RW was a bananas foster inspired plantain dessert which was heavenly. I hope they consider adding it to the regular menu."

  • "Food was fantastic and everybody enjoyed everything they ordered. Only issue was that my main entree order was wrong. By the time I got my correct order, I had to leave to go back to work and didn't have time to enjoy it at the restaurant."

  • "We were a family group of 10 including 4 children. We enjoyed the shared small plates of 'gourmet' Mexican food, all interesting & delicious. Children's menu choices are good. We were seated at a long table in a quiet lower level room with excellent service."

  • "Went for our office Christmas lunch. The server was so helpful in suggesting small plates and drinks. The duck confit was off the chain delicious. Forest mushroom quesadilla was exceptional. Great atmosphere. Interesting decor elements. Will be back. And bring friends. :)"

  • "Good food, decent service. Everything was a tad too salty for my taste, but both the corn soup and carnitas tacos were delicious."

  • "Love tapas and sharing dishes with others, and Isalita provides an interesting twist on tapas with their Mexican style rather than Spanish. There were 6 of us and we all enjoyed the various dishes and the sangria!"
