Was surprised to find Mexican
Was surprised to find Mexican food so unique. The perfect amount of flavor and spice. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about preparation of the food. The three of us had the Chile Rellenos and we moaned with every bite. The building had great character and loved being able to walk on the beach after dinner. Can't wait to bring my husband!

We usually go for breakfast, but this time we had dinner. Boyfriend loved the Double Happiness Lettuce Wraps, and I enjoyed the seared ahi special of the day...very fresh & tasty! Our server was great, although food took a while.

Food was tasty. Great options for the vegans and gluten free folks in our group. Only wish the service had been a bit more prompt.

Our server, Bri, was very friendly, attentive and had great suggestions. This was our second time for dinner (we're ususally for breakfast) and really enjoyed the midweek scene. We'll be back for sure!

Great neighborhood food
My wife loves the combination of flavor s and ingredients and while I find relatively few things of culinary interest to me, we invariably enjoy the evenings and are well satisfied. The wines by the glass are excellent choices and reasonably priced and the Latina style roasted half chicken is always more that I can eat. The flat iron steak done Isabel Yale is excellent. Their double chocolate cake dessert is a must have at least once. The staff are very friendly and remember returning guest s. All in all a good meal at reasonable prices and quite convenient to our neighborhood.

Great experience food disappointing
Love the minimalist, Zen-like atmosphere. Our waiter, Anthony, was excellent with a great sense of humor that really added to the evening. The food, however, was not up to our usual expectations at Isabel's restaurants. Guess everyone has an off-night. We'll be back, though.

Great Every Time!
This has quickly become one of my favorite spots in Pacific Beach. The food is always amazing and service is impecable and cordial. The raspberry jalepeno margarita was sensational and the honey cucumber mimosas are to die for! I had the lettuce wraps which were cooked perfectly.

I made reservations for a group of 20+ for my birthday dinner and the staff at Isabel Catina's made it so easy to plan. As the numbers of attendants grew for my group dinner, Isabel Catina accommodated and made it possible. The staff was so great! Everyone was friendly and provided great service for all of us. I loved the laid back ambiance of the restaurant. The food was also delicious and healthy!!! I'd recommend this place to anyone interested in giving this hidden PB gem a try!!

This is very consistent and
This is very consistent and never disappoints: you always know you will get very good, reasonably priced food in pretty big orations and everything can be shared. Their brunches are great, though the dinner we had was exactly what we were looking for. It has been around a long time and for good reason. Go early to a ok'd. Roads!!

Just Good Food!
Out of the ordinary menu - this is our first time back in 3-4 years and nothing has changed! Menu is eclectic and delicious. Wine menu is good - and the wait staff quick and friendly. The only drawback is the noise level - which can be "energizing". We will definitely be returning soon..............

SD Restaurant Week Special
I enjoyed the San Diego Restaurant special for only $20. The food was very tasty and the service was even better.

Spent a fun evening with friends I hadn't seen in a long time. We all participated in their restaurant week menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal, especially the flourless chocolate cake. It was a bit too noisy to talk to the friends across the table.

Dinner at Isabel's
We have eaten here many times, typically for breakfast, and like it very much. Lots of good choices for vegetarians, and the tofu is particularly delicious. Our out-of-town guest enjoyed his seafood tacos. Lovely atmosphere with the lit candles.
