Isabella's is our go-to dinner spot prior to the Community Theater a block or so away. The tapas selection is varied, but not so large as to make it too hard to choose. We like to share around the table and split the check. The staff are very helpful with recommendations and explanations, and very attentive.
Wonderful Sunday lunch with friends in a Frederick gem! Tapas were excellent. Service was pleasant and professional. We sat by the fireplace which was perfect for a cold winter's day.
We went to Isabella's for my birthday. It was bitterly cold so we arrived early and sat at the bar until close to our reservation time. The bartenders were friendly and attentive and they had a nice selection of specialty cocktails to choose from. We had very tasty dinner of tapas and entrees. The waiter Brian was young but served us well and he could take some kidding around. When Isabella's found out it was my birthday the chef put together a beautiful assortment of Isabella desserts' small bites on a platter for the table. Delightful! We would happily return there.
Phenomenal restaurant, excellent service, not to mention the excellent quality of food.
We go here for every special occasion. We love the food and atmosphere. The customer service is top notch. If I had to find anything wrong I would say their mixed drinks are too strong. If you go plan on spending a pretty penny but worth every cent.
Came for an early NYE dinner with out of town guests. Other than being seated unnecessarily just inside the door, the experience was very good. We were not rushed, and the food was delicious. I will say, I ordered a bottle of wine which on the menu was a 2013, but when it arrived it was a 2014. Wine was still good, but worth noting the discrepancy.
Excellent variety of tapas. Desserts were to die for.
We sat near the fireplace. Great food choices. Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. Gluten free options. Food is delicious and comes out fast. We highly recommend Isabellas.
We went to Isabella’s for a late lunch. They have a great special on Tapas. We shared tapas as paella. The Tapas were very different, interesting, tasty, and presented well. Everything was delicious and the service was great.
Very good tapas menu overall. Comfortable and cozy. Service is fine. This is an older, historic building in downtown Frederick. However, the wood floors sound like they're going to give in. The service personnel walk up and down the wood floor aisle but no matter how light and thin they are they sound like dinosaurs thredging back and forth and the food and drinks on your table in the booth jump and shake with each booming footstep. That's the drawback to dining here. Try sitting in a booth closer to the front entrance or better at the window side tables.
