I met some old friends at Isabella for dinner. It was my first time there and I was very impressed. The ambience was warm and relaxing, the service was great,and our meals were delicious! The atmosphere was quiet and my friends and I were able to talk and catch up. Overall a wonderful experience.
This is a great restaurant, I’ve never had a bad meal.
Very nice experience. Food and service exceptional. Relaxing ambiance. Tracy and Nadine are the A team! Thank you both for a great evening at Isabella.
Will return for sure.
Tables along the front windows were too close together
Always a nice experience
One of my favorite places to eat in Wilkes Barre,,,,,,,,,, never disappoints!
Everything was Excellent. Choices beyond turkey for thanksgiving on the
Relaxing atmosphere for lunch with quite a variety to choose from on the menu. Delicious, fresh food in a quality restaurant.
Great food selection and excellent quality. Service was top notch.
Very good all around
The scallops appetizer is my favorite! I always order it and my fiancé always gets the Cesar salad. I love the pasta with meat sauce and their fish dishes are always delicious. I opted for skirt steak that was tender and delicious!
We've dined here a few times, tonight we were disappointed. I ordered a grey goose dirty martini,the olives were old. For an appetizer we had fried calamari,it had a dirty oil taste & a few pieces had a strong "fishy" taste. 1 of our dinner entrees came out cool/Luke warm, who likes cold mashed potatoes, not me,& they use the same gravy as the dive diner down the street. The quality of food isn't what it used to be. It's to bad 👎 4/10 don't recommend
Brussels sprouts and chicken were delicious!
Top choice for fine dining in NEPA. Isabella always impresses.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Wilkes-Barre area. Always consistent!
Definitely recommended by us! Service is amazing. Food is great.
Owner is a wonderful man who is hands on with his staff and his customers.
Excellent food, quality individual service. Food was good but the pasta was very spicy without warning. Beware!
We celebrated a birthday with family and had a great experience. From the service, the food and the ambiance was very special.
Wonderful time,great food and excellent service from Holly! Loved it.
Two dirty glasses, servers kept forgetting to fill our waters, and the calamari only tasted like salt. Like a lot of just salt.
They were out of all Chardonnay on the list and then offered a Rodney Strong generic. No location listed showing run of the mill for $38. Portions were poor for the salmon which they only cooked to pink inside. They should tell guests that’s how it is cooked. Steak frites only the fries were good. Meat again small portion and poor quality. I couldn’t chew it. Seafood Fra Diablo Blanco had no flavor and skimpy on the seafood. $38 entree way over priced. We won’t be back. Carrot cake was more like a spice cake undercooked and no cream cheese frosting. Portion small. $216 dinner without tip. Not worth the $. I don’t mind spending the $ for top food, service, but I expect more. Coming out of COVID is tough but they need to do better to get clientele back.
Food was decent at best. There are many other places in the area with better food for much less. The service though was horrible and I won't be returning.
I loved Isabella and we had the best waitress (Nadine). I only ate here once before and I believe I had the same waitress and she was just as wonderful. The food was excellent and the restaurant is beautiful. It was a perfect spot to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday.
My wife and I made a first visit yesterday. Our server Michelle was excellent and made our experience very enjoyable. The food was very good as well. We recommend Isabella and will be returning for sure in the future.
Really small portions. Not a fan of getting a pound of pasta, and don’t “require” leftovers, but meals were small. Salmon entree was, very generously measured, maybe 1 1/4” x 5.” Great flavor, though. A few fun cocktails available; wondered if ones we got had much alcohol, but they were good. Service was excellent.
Not the dining experience we expected. No attention to our table at all. Had to request bread which other tables were give. Never poured our bottled water for us-simply threw them on the table. My salmon was extremely undercooked. We wanted a special graduation dinner for our son and unfortunately were very disappointed.
Food and service were excellent. Have been here many times and will return.
It was great and the food was delicious
Everything was excellent!
Service, food, atmosphere were excellent for Easter dinner.
My friend passed an important test. We were able to get right in and add another person to our table without issue!
The food portions were good but there is not much flavor to the food. We were disappointed by the lack of taste in everything we ate. The bread that they serve seems to be a store-bought baguette that is not even toasted. We asked for olives and were even disappointed by these. The service was better than the food but not outstanding.
Staff is great. Food was delicious and I loved the blood orange margarita.
Food is good as always love this place but service was a little slow as there was only 2 servers and it took them awhile to get around
Fabulous food and great service.
First time there definitely will go back. Food and service were outstanding. Nice menu lots of choices. Very clean!
This lovely restaurant has become one of my favorites in Wilkes-Barre. Great food, good wine and terrific service. I was treated as an old friend. I will go there every time I am in WB.
The charcuterie board was delicious; however, the main courses arrived cold when served. We sent the seafood fra diavolo back because all of the seafood was cold. The steak entree we ordered was on the cold side when it arrived at the table as well...Overall, we were very disappointed.
Great for a special occasion at lunch well balanced menu Waiters are superb
