Isola Trattoria & Crudo Bar
SuperbThe food is extraordinarily rich and savory, and the service was terrific. Highly recommended!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!I would like to start by telling you how beautiful the room is - loved the ambience! The service, from our waitress to the bus boys and the person who filled our water glasses, was very attentive and friendly - pretty amazing. The food was also excellent. High marks to our plate of cheese, nuts, and meats antipasta; the beets salad; cod cheeks; tuna crudo; and the veal raviolis. The entrees of steak and chicken were very good, although we all preferred the shared appetizers more.
I had read the reviews about the poor service and the loud music, but my party did not experience any of that. We did go on a Tuesday evening and it was fairly early for a New York dinner - 6PM to 8PM.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my boyfriend to IsolaI took my boyfriend to Isola to celebrate his 30th birthday. The space is gorgeous and the food was delicious, but the music was so loud it was impossible to carry on a conversation. What would would have been a great meal was ruined by the DJ spinning so loud that we walked out with sore throats from screaming at each other.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMReally do not have any complaints.Really do not have any complaints. Beautiful space. Service was good not great. Waiters were polite and attentive. Food was good brunch food. Drinks were small. Without drinks good value. With drinks, as we all know in NYC, value worse.

The food was also excellent had the lamb for apetizer, pasta for entreè4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, romantic setting yet well lit giving the aura and ability to carry on conversation. Waiter was informative and recommended a nice wine to suit our requests.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best pasta dishesOne of the best pasta dishes I have had in a long time. Cauliflower Agnolotti with truffle butter, mushrooms and parmesan. Yum. The waitress made a great wine recco as well. I was expecting the scene to be intimidating, even on a Tuesday night, but I guess because it was a Tuesday, it actually felt very relaxed and chill. Nice to have a surprisingly low-key moment at this hot spot. There were no shortage of celebs, though, we saw Emma Watson and Jonah Hill (who must have been staying at the Mondrian since they just walked through the restaurant together) and Ashley Tisdale, who was having a drink at the bar.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIsola was buzzing on a ThursdayIsola was buzzing on a Thursday night.

Lovely experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an incredible restaurantThis is an incredible restaurant with a visual impact second to none. That said, the food is not to be believed: really authentic Italian cuisine. The service people were very helpful and professional, something that is hard to find today.
