    If your looking for a Great Steak House look no further than IZZY's. I have nothing but great things to say from Making the reservations to the parking. The Steaks and Lamb chops were cooked to perfection. The Mussles had that extra something when the waitress poured on the White Wine at the table. Now as for the desserts they were great as well we had the Cream Brule and a few scoops of Gelato with Chocolate sauce. I was and still am very Impressed with this Steak house. I only wished they were open for lunch and drinks @ 1pm that would be great. Could you picture it Mussles and french bread with a glass of Vino. I give them 5 stars out of 5. You would think I had been before nope this was a random pick from the internet site Yelp.

    Izzy's is right across the parking lot from the Marriot I stayed at. The food was great and the service was very good. Francisco was my waiter and did a great job. The Filet Au Poivre was very good. I will be returning.

    We are regulars that are generally impressed how we can get in and out in less than 45 minutes. I'm glad our recent visit wasn't the first, otherwise we may not have returned. Our waiter was really bad, and it's happened before with the same waiter (I don't know his name). He took our orders right away, but it was more than 20 minutes until we got our drinks...with no sign of him between. When our food came it, 2 out of 3 meals were stone cold. It took us another 5 minutes to flag someone down to let him know. Didn't even get an apology. He took the food back, returned it, then was a little more attentive, but it was too late. He clearly lost track of our food, just like our drinks and just let it sit too long.

    Rib eye was a special, 4 in our party of 6 chose that and every steak was tough. Their version of Cesar salad is lettuce with bottled dressing. I had the kid's sundae for dessert and it was the best part of the meal. For $500. this restaurant leaves a lot to be desired!

    Our waiter was new but very attentive. I ordered the French Onion soup starter and was asked if I wanted a cup or bowl. The cup of soup came in an actual tea cup. My husband had the fillet with shoestring potatoes and steamed asparagus. The potatoes were cold and the asparagus was raw and inedible. Our waiter took the potatoes and brought us back hot potatoes very quickly. We didn’t bother to mention the asparagus. The steaks were fine. Overall, we were disappointed in our meal but appreciated the service given by our waiter.

    Izzy's provides an old-style dining experience. Good food and service. We shared a Ceasar Salad, it was tasty and crunchy. The 14 oz prime rib was very tasty and cooked exactly to order, but next time I'll get the smaller one. Pepper steak was good, but the sauce was very rich. If you like creamed spinach, theirs is excellent. Their au-gratin potatoes are tasty, but very rich. Wines by-the-glass were reasonable. Service was OK, but the waitress was very busy, so we had to get olive oil from the busboy.

  • The espresso was very good.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/24/2012
    The espresso was very good. The New York Strip had flavor, but was medium - not rare as I had requested. We did not order alcohol and the two tables next to us, who arrived after we did, were served before us. It took 40 minutes for our main course to arrive,and we had to ask about it. The house salads arrived quickly and were tasty. The creamed spinach was OK, though far from inspired. The asparagus was good. The fruit crisp that I had for dessert was very average - something that I could have gotten at Denny's. Not what I was expecting. My wife said that the cheesecake was good. We were charged about $98.00 for what was ,at best, a $65.00 meal. Couple this with what I consider poor service and we will not be returning.

    I went to the San Carlos location. The food was absolutely delicious (filet mignon, Izzy's potatoes, creamed spinach). The waiter and the rest of the staff were excellent--just the right amount of attention. Even though the restaurant was filling up, my friend and I did not feel pressured to finish up our wine and leave. I'd love to come back soon, but it is a little pricey.

    A very good traditional steak, prime rib chops place. Meals come with choice of two sides which are very nice offerings. The dessert we shared was excellent. Portions are very generous, we all took some of our dinners home. They are supposed to start lunch service in mid-September. We'll definitely be going back. Wine list is (of course) heavily slanted to the reds.

  • Steak Not Great
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/11/2012
    For a Steak house they don't seem to know how to cook steaks. My filet was very tough. I really had to saw at it with my knife. Another filet at our table was over cooked. The prime ribs at our table looked good to me but didn't get any remarks from their eaters. The side dishes were very tasty but also very heavy handed. The specialty scalloped potatoes were super salty - I guess that's what people like... but I prefer more subtle flavors. I had the salmon on my first visit and it was overcooked. I guess I would classify this as "chain restaurant" food. Go if your primary goal is tons of food.

    Izzy's is awesome. For the area, if you don't want to go all out and go to Flemnings Izzy's is a great spot. Their steaks are great, it's the one place I'd prefer a bone in ribeye to a filet. The sides are great, best creamed spinach I've had. The seasoned mussels as an appetizer is another can't miss dish.

Though the wait staff was friendly they didnt seem to have a great grasp of the menu. Are salads were good but our entrees arrived minutes after the salads to we felt rushed. We both had prime rib and to was a bit tough and way under seasoned and the the vegetables that accompanied the prime rib were barely blanched and were served plain. We were hoping for much more.
