Diner Reviews
  • "What a beautiful hidden spot, tucked away in the city."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Brunch/lunch here is pricey but worth it. You're paying for good food and great ambiance. Nothing beats that than enjoying it with great company! Really good lemon ricotta pancakes. It has to be their signature dish - it was that good. I could lick the sauce off the plate! Beautiful indoor dining with an outdoor vibe."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Gorgeous indoor dining that actually looks like almost outdoors because of all the glasses, high ceiling, and windows, and beautiful outside seating. This is a perfect place for a weekend brunch with your friends and to walk around Soho afterward. The food was clean, neat, and simple yet very delicious."

  • "Our apetizer (ham and cheese platter) was great but both mains (pizza and pasta) disapointed and were not finished. The setting is gorgeous but the food lets down the high end ambience"

  • "The one thing about Isola that stands out above everything else is just how magnificent the space is. From the glass roof, to the chandeliers, to the impressive bar, its all breathtaking. And the good doesn't end there. Food is delicious, drinks are great, and while the service might not have been as attentive as it should've been, the server was such a sweetheart, all was forgiven. Terrific brunch spot, and I can only imagine how amazing the space looks at night. I can't wait to go back."

  • "The place is gorgeous.. So low key but glam at the same time.. The service is amazing and good food.. Had a great time!"

  • "Isola is a current favorite, especially when it's nice out in NYC. There's nothing special about a rooftop scene with mediocre food. It's possible to enjoy both the sun and delicious food when dining at Isola. I went on the July 4th weekend for brunch and it was fairly empty. Food was tasty as usual. The current chef has a heavy hand with salt. My porchetta with poached eggs and leek biscuit was overly salty. I was here two weeks ago and the kitchen over salted the pasta as well. Excellent portions, so it's great for hungry men. I can always rely on Isola to impress."

  • "The brunch and the cocktails were stellar. Ambiance; beautiful. The service was maybe the worst I have ever had in my life. The server was unfamiliar with the menu, delivered our drinks to the wrong table, and brought us an already opened bottle of wine, instead of opening it table side. The bottle also came when we were already halfway through our meal. Not sure what the delay was- it was a $40 bottle- nothing extravagant. I would definitely come back for the food and the setting, but be wary of which server next time."

  • "I absolutely love their lemon ricotta pancakes...but they served my two friends meals and forgot mine. Quickly reminded the waitress, she said she would check and then said they would have it right to me. 10 minutes later, nothing....it's like I never spoke to her. My friends food got cold while they waited....until they just had to eat theirs. Then when I tell them again, another 10 minutes and no food....I actually took them 25 minutes to bring out two pancakes. The only good thing was that they comped our first round of drinks...but still there was no excuse for the long wait. It totally ruined the brunch that we came all the way down from 72nd street for!!!"

  • "great food, good service, nice decoration but we couldn't enjoyed at all because it was freezing cold."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Beautiful setup, appetizer was really good. Main dishes took forever and when they arrived one was cold. Waiter never came to check on us and completely aloof"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I really loved the Chittara pasta I had when I went for a late lunch. It wasn't too busy. Service was good but not great. I would go back again for the food."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "I was very excited to go to the Mondrian for breakfast. Sadly when I arrived there, staff wasn't welcoming and did not know their menu. After asking for fruits instead of raisins in my oatmeal, I was told right before my food arrived that it was at an extra charge. The extra charge did not bother me, I just feel that you should mention this as soon as I ask for a modification. Also, when I was done my food, nobody came to see us for 30 minutes and I had to get up and ask for the bill. It is not a big deal, but working myself in the restaurant industry, I was expecting the Mondrian to have higher service standards."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful but the service was awful. Usually things get better during a meal but the service went from bad to worse! The host apologized many times but it still didn't make things move faster. They ran out of selections but waited a bit to tell us and then took forever to make an easy substitution to make things work. I'd like this restaurant to do well since the setting is so nice but they have to get their act together."

  • "Place has a skylight and chandeliers...food is very good but you there for the overall experience"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Sure it's in the Mondrian Soho with a bit of a "are you beautiful enough to eat here?" vibe. But that's part of the fun. Service is actually great, the room itself is stunning and the food is wonderful. We had octopus and a selection of crudo to start, the bronzino for an entree and a bottle of the rose champagne. Great people watching, great fun! Highly recommend it!"

  • "My reservation was listed as no show, even though I checked in with the maître de stating it is an opentable reservation. The place was dead: a few old fogies like myself reminiscing the old hip days. The food is mediocre. Then the music got loud and we had to yell as we were in the 'hood. Very low class. Not bring respectable company there."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I had meaning to go there for a while and I finally did with two friends, one of them was running late so we were asked to wait in this weird hotel lobby which was great but it felt like you were send to the corner by your teacher. After my friend showed up we were told that we will have to leave by 9 since we were running late...umm okay. The restaurant is beautiful,everything about it is mesmerizing. The appetizers were great but the main entree wasn't the best. I think its one of those place you go to once for the experience and that's it."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Food was excellent, but out server left us asking everyone we could get to the table for the opportunity to order our food and even beverages. His service timing was noticeable off. Fortunately, we loved the food, and we enjoyed one another's company as this was a special occassion."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "In a few simple words...the lemon ricotta pancakes are to die for!!!!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "A very pretty restaurant. The lunch menu is limited but adequate. My only complaint is finding it. It's attached to the Mondrian Hotel, and it would have been helpful to mention that in the directions. We walked all the way around only to be told that the actual entrance was on another block. Weird."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • " Good- stunning restaurant, great interior design. Everyone liked the food. Fun atmosphere "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We went for brunch and this is just the cutest spot. I got the ricotta pancakes and they were so light and fluffy, I'd be back just for those but the ambiance in the space is worth the trip even if the food had been awful, and it wasn't."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "I was at Isola for brunch over the weekend and I must say the decor is very nice and the food was amazing but where they lack is service. My friend and I were seat right away and at first the waiter was pleasant and friendly. Shortly after placing our order only half of the food came out. After bringing this to the waiters attention he questioned who we had placed the order with and once realizing his mistake failed to apologize. After the remainder of our food arrived we were completely ignored and practically had to beg for our check. At the end there was a poor attempt to rectify the situation but truthfully it was too little too late. It's a shame the service ruined our experience. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Beautiful ambiance, from the moment we walked in I fell in love with the decor, which made up for the mediocre food. Great place to take a date to impress."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This is a beautiful, light and airy restaurant with a great ambiance. The lemon ricotta pancakes with fresh berries were absolutely delicious. Although our waiter was pleasant and polite, he was forgetful and seemed very scatter-brained. That being said, the restaurant is beautiful and we had a wonderful time."

  • "We were in NYC for 4 days and this was by far the most beautiful place we dinned. Not to mention our service was awesome. Both of our servers (we had two bc we stayed for so long) were so friendly, helpful and polite. They let us change our order and were extremley accomadating. Ive already recommended this place to several NYC locals as a must go to place. Great granola as well! and the truffle pizza was gone in minutes."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "There was confusion when I said I had made "brunch" reservations at 10:30. They apparently only serve "breakfast" until 11:30 and I was asked if I would wait in the lobby until then...are you joking? After I explained that I didn't care what you called it, I wanted to be seated for when I made the reservation it took another 15 minutes for them to clean a table. 3/4 of the tables were open but every one was dirty. Food was good- the frittata was more of an open faced omelette but the pancakes were delicious. A lot of people were working on their laptops and phones as they were hotel guests so it was a little noisy & not in the pleasant, vibrant dining scene way. Overall, the beauty of the room was the only thing that saved the experience. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "there is not much to recommend it...its gorgeous and probably fun for a loud clubby-like birthday party, but the food is mediocre and the service even worse....That said, it also probably is a great place to come for a fun drink... as a restaurant, its simply lacking in the most important ways ( food and service!)"

  • "Very unhelpful and unfriendly staff. Food was lovely in the end, but poor choice."

  • "didnt expect to find such an amazing place near china town. Food was decent, the ambience is amazing. Only downside was that the server wasnt very attentive, and food was late. Good thing we had lots of time. "

  • "I took a client to Isola for lunch today. The Maître d's podium was unmanned and I had to ask 3 people before someone who could seat me was found. The room was very pretty -- and pretty empty -- and yet I was led to a table right next to one of the only occupied tables in the dining room. When I asked for a more private table they found me one right away. After waiting for 10 minutes I asked a waiter for some water. After a long wait for our food, my order was incorrect. I asked the waiter to fix it and he got it half right on the next round. He tried to take it away to fix it again I had to pull it back and tell him I didn't want my guest to have to wait to start her meal any longer. The people watching was good."

  • "My clients enjoyed this elegant room and Italianate lunch menu; the roof is entirely a skylight, so it feels a bit like you're inside a Victorian terrarium. :) The decor is ornate but restful to the eye. I'd bring back friends for a special occasion."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Lazy waiter kept going back to the corner to chat with his buddies. Food is definitely not matched up to the level of place itself. I expected a better food and service. Atmosphere and drinks were awesome though."

  • "This restaurant was gorgeous, but the food was no where near what I thought it would be. For such a nice restaurant, I expected the food to be top notch, and it was good, but just good enough for a restaurant you would go to on any random night."

  • "Service was a bit slow, but very friendly. The food was amazing! The freshness, taste and presentation was quite impressive, definitely will be back."
