Great evening. Enjoyed the food. Service was prompt and friendly. Good value.
Took my wife out for date night. The place was amazing. It’s now in our top 3 places to go. Food and drinks were yummy and reasonably priced. Had our waiter who has been there 19 years order for us, was the best idea as we were not disappointed.
Very impressed. Our server was friendly and very helpful. The food was delicious. They were great about modifying dishes to make them vegetarian. I look forward to my next visit.
The service and food were amazing. We arrived shortly before our reservation time and were seated promptly. I'm a big fan of the tapas/small plate concept because you can try a bunch of different items if you wish. Nothing we ordered disappointed. Everything was delicious. They have a variety of meat, seafood and vegetable options so there seemed to be choices for most people.
If you are a fan of chorizo then be sure to try all the chorizo dishes (I had 3 different ones). You won't regret it.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tapas and the restaurant was relaxed and enjoyable for my husband and I to have a great dinner date!!
We enjoyed everything. Food, beverage, dessert, ambience, and service were great. Everything that open table told us it would be. We plan on going back in the spring pr summer so we can stroll around downtown after dinner.
We had so much fun eating at Isabella’s. Our server was delightful. The food was wonderful, and the ambiance was great. Isabella’s is one of my favorite places to go to for lunch, dinner or happy hour. I am always happy when I chose to go to Isabella’s for any occasion!
We thought that the paella was the best we had had in this country, which is saying a lot! The service was quite good, and the whole evening was fun. We will go back, for sure!
Relaxed atmosphere, great tapas and excellent service!
Went to Isabella's to celebrate our engagement. Food was incredibly delicious, wait staff were fantastic. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, everything was amazing.
Great food in a friendly environment. We will definitely visit again!!
We came for my wife’s birthday and had her family visiting from Puerto Rico waiting in surprise in the back of the restaurant. The host staff did an amazing job of keeping the surprise as well as filming with one of our cameras. Overall, this was above and beyond what we could’ve expected and it set the stage for a great dining experience.
As usual, food was top notch, if a little pricey. Service was very poor - we were essentially ignored, and it wasn’t because they were understaffed. We also weren’t the only ones, and at least one couple walked out. I recommend sitting at the bar instead of a table - service was great the last time we did that.
Love Isabella’s! The food is excellent, the choices are varied and the service was excellent! We were there on a very busy Saturday. We were seated immediately despite being early for our reservation. Over 2 hours later we were still there. Never did we feel rushed or hurried. We ate and drank at our own pace, the food was delivered at perfect intervals. A must if you’re in Frederick!
Trip from Baltimore to enjoy First Saturday and a great dinner with friends. It’s fun to try lots of different dishes, sip some homemade sangria and laugh, a lot!
Love to come back.
Love the atmosphere and variety of great food.
We went to Isabellas for our 11 year dating anniversary. The hostess seated us at a small cramped table against the wall. I requested a booth, she said they were all taken. several booths appeared empty the whole time. I have been to this restaurant several times. Both visits they served the tapas after the entree. The service lacks. The food is great. I just wish the service was more organized. I was also told my omlet came with an english muffin or toast, then I was charged separately for the english muffin. I was very disappointed that
I informed them when the reservation was made that this was my anniversary, but nothing was complimentary no discounts were applied to the check, AND I WAS OVER CHARGED!!!! I was embarassed that Id choosen so poorly for an anniversary meal. I might dine here again, but I will not recommend this place for a special occasion or an anniversary. Choose a different restaurant!!!!!
Great brunch at Isabella's...as always. The specialty Mimosa with blood orange liqueur was superb and staff there so professional, yet friendly!
This was our second visit to Isabellas. We have found our new favorite place! We were there for brunch on Sunday and totally enjoyed the great service and food.
Excellent Tapas and Server. Delicious, creative cuisine
We had the spinach, mushroom, and mahi mahi tapas and the Dorado special. All were very good, especially the Dorado.
It was a bit loud were we sat and there was a bit of a draft but the other side of the same table was fine. We were seated in the outer corner of the room behind the bar area.
The service was good and the dishes came out hit and fairly quickly.
Overall, we enjoyed the experience and the options for healthy and tasty food.
Haven't been there in a few years & wondered why since the food is fabulous. Will be back much sooner now.
For this particular visit, our Waiter was quite surly. Hovered and seemed annoyed in general. Quite noisy inside — hard to converse at regular volume level. Food was good, though fried asparagus was over cooked and batter very dark. Went on a Sunday for brunch and everything was great
There is something for everyone at this tapas restaurant. Paella is always a hit but note there is about a 25 minute lead time for this. Must try the asparagus spears at a minimum. There is enough variation to order multiple small plates to share with the table. Small plates are large enough to share with one or two. One surprise with desert when ordering ice cream - this came out as 6 almost 'normal' sized scoops of different (wonderful) flavored ice creams. It was a lot to finish after having a few small plates for entrees. High class problem to have...the three of us managed to finish most of it :-D
Great food great atmosphere
Another lovely meal! We took out of town guests to Isabella's and we all really enjoyed the variety of food selections available. Even though the building is older, wheelchair access was easy and the staff had prepared a table that was easily reachable.
Excellent food!! Service was awesome as well. We were a group of 12 and Joe treated us great!
Great. Seated immediately when there would have been a 90 minute wait without a reservation.
Our waitress recommended wonderful tapas and we loved everything we ordered! The service was top notch. The paella is good. We were seated a little close to the tables next to us, but otherwise it was awesome. We’ll be going to Isabella’s again!
