So bummed. Terrible service. Even saw someone get up and leave as no one checked on him. I had to get up and go ask the hostess for service. Server never came back after dropping food which is always a big deal. He was way better when we were there in Nov

Outdoor dining setup is one of the best I've seen. It feels like another setting rather than second place since we can't go indoors. The individual table lamps that doubled as heaters was especially nice. There were a lot of tables but plenty of openings for air flow. Great for a special outing!

Friday was a chilly night, yet the staff had brand new blankets for us to use while we dined outside. This was such an amazing detail that they really helped us enjoy our meal. The staff was awesome from the hostess, to the waiters...everyone was just great. The food and the cocktail recommendations were incredible....
Highly recommend this place for a meal!

My disappointment and this has happened more than once. This evening was a celebration. I put it on the reservation and the celebration was ignored. I feel when you pay over $200 for a dinner out the restaurant could acknowledge the celebration.

It's unfortunate that you can't dine inside. Trying to support businesses and we were freezing outside. The heat lamps help a lil, my food was cold after a few minutes. STAND UP AND REOPEN INSIDE! That way we can support in a better atmosphere..

With the limitations of Covid. Izzy’s has done a great job with an outside dining patio. Tables spaced apart, each with an overhead heater. Service was great, nice ambiance, good food.

The asparagus was a bit garlicky for me. Next time I will have mashed potatoes versus the baked potato. The mashed potatoes were fluffy and creamy. The broccoli was great too. I ordered filet mignon forgetting that not too much fat in it. It was tender even though well done ( always like my steaks well done). Next time I will go for the NY steak, loved it more. Service was amazing. Wish I could remember our waitress’s name.
