I felt the steak I got did not justify $95. The deep fried oyster was “mushy”.

The filet Mignon was great but the creamed spinach tasted fishy. I asked for a replacement for the spinach and she never brought it. For the amount of money I spent I would think it would have been better. I was there before and the food was outstanding but New Years eve the food was not so good.

Izzy’s is a no frills steak house more suited to everyday dining. The menu is bare bones but the food is very high quality. Everything is lightly seasoned and let’s the ingredients speak for themselves. The filet mignon au poivre is really good with a peppery bite. The roasted mussels were excellent and very fresh. The star of the meal was the homemade desserts, the key lime pie is wonderful. Overall the meal was spendy and the value is fair at best. Izzy’s is a good but not great place for a steak.

Party of three and we started with the mussels and wedge salad, both delicious. We all had the filet mignon medium rare, cooked to perfection. Our favorite side was the creamed spinach. The food was all perfectly seasoned and delicious. What put our experience over the top was the superb wait service! Everyone from our waiter, the gentleman who brought our food, to the woman who brought us more bread— all were very attentive, courteous, and provided exceptional customer service! I’m only sorry I didn’t get their names.

The waiter was excellent. My filet mignon was suppose to be medium rare it was medium well. My son's wife was also cooked medium and should have been medium rare. My wife and son's filet mignon was cooked to their liking.
The creamed spinach was excellent. We will return again.

Izzy’s has always been my favorite. I can always expect a delicious quality meal.
The wedge salad was fresh, prime rib end cut was tasty.
Best thing was the service starting with the hostess which greeted us and accommodated in a table switch to our server who decanted our wine, made recommendations and was engaging to his partnered assistant who kept our water glasses refilled and brought us any condiments.
Thank you all for being attentive.

The waiter was not the problem he was very nice and helpful, It was on 12-11-21 had a reservation for 2 at 830, My wife ordered The lamb, I ordered the New York Strip, my meal was the issue, I was asked how do like it cooked, I said please really well done, please no pink, I also said were in no hurry, and if you half to you can butter fly the steak if Necessary, I was told nope that’s not going to be a problem, I said thank you I really appreciate that, soon as the steak was placed on the table I knew it was pink , I said I can smell and see it’s uncooked, after I cut it in the middle I saw it was bright Red, I ask if you could please take this back a cook it some more, The waiter did and I said thank you, this time a different steak was brought out unfortunately for me it was the same issue so I told the waiter it’s the same issue it’s bright in the middle, the waiter said sorry, and said it’s not your fault, but by now I didn’t want to take a chance and send it back to the kitchen, But my wife enjoyed her meal she said everything for her was great! So the bill comes and I’m being charged for a steak that is still in front of me, I asked why am I being charged for the $45 steak that was under cooked twice? I asked to speak to the manager, our waiter came back to the table and said the Manager wasn’t going to talk with me about this issue!!! So I ask for the managers name again I said thank you to our waiter and just paid the bill and also left a nice tip for our waiter, I kinda said I will be writing a review about this place and hopefully someone will see this!!! In the end My wife enjoyed her meal, and for myself I got back home made myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich

Delicious food with big portions. Drinks were tasty. Recommend starting with cocktails and calamari.

Felt to me like the wait staff was not in any rush which was nice, but felt like it took a while to get our food ordered once we knew what we wanted. It was ok for us because we weren't in a rush and it was like they didn't want to rush us out of the door. I would go again
