The food was very good as usual, but my son’s filet was a little over cooked. It took a while to get our drinks, and then was told the draft beer my son wanted wasn’t available because it wasn’t working. He had to settle for a bottled beer which was okay.
Overall, the experience was good and we enjoyed our meal.

Based on our past experience of about two months ago and a great time we had with good service and good food we went here again last night to celebrate our friend’s special birthday. It was a major disappointment. We waited an inordinate amount of time for our cocktails. We were almost finished with our appetizers when the drinks finally arrived. We ordered a second round of cocktails and again we had to wait a very long time.

My friend is a chef and he had skirt steak which he said had way too much barbecue sauce. Also the Izzy’s potatoes he thought tasted like instant Betty Crocker potatoes au gratin. The brussels sprouts were overcooked and many even burnt. My baked sweet potato you could tell was sitting around for a while before they served it. Two of our friends ordered Prime Rib requesting that it was prepared rare. The server informed us that the restaurant was only able to make it medium rare. What kind of steakhouse can’t prepare the meat to our request? The meat came out dry.

Throughout the evening, we had to turn our heads several times to find someone for water refills and asked for our cocktail glasses to be removed before the second round came. Our server said her busser was nowhere to be found. 😌 After reminding the server about our friend’s birthday, we felt she made no attempt to make it special. We ordered a birthday dessert at the end of our meal, which was placed in front our friend next to empty plates and glasses still on the table.

The server was pleasant when she served us, but we felt the overall table service and food was underwhelming.

We had a lovely dinner at Izzys however it wasn’t without issue. The starters came out perfectly and were delicious. We got the prawns (highly recommended), fried oysters and calamari.

I requested the bottle of red wine that was ordered at the start of the meal to be brought at the same time as the main courses however this was delayed until roughly 10 minutes after they were served. The steaks were all served at the same time which was ideal.

Once we got to the mains however one of the steaks was over cooked(5 out of 6 were correctly cooked and feedback from the group was very positive). We alerted our waitress and received pushback and were met with the suggestion to cut into the middle and disregard the initial inch or so of the steak. This would have been a huge amount of the steak cooked incorrectly if we were to agree, (8oz filet) which we didn’t. We had to stand our ground in order to get a new steak cooked (it wasn’t confrontational however I felt any form of pushback was unusual for an establishment of this stature).

Unfortunately we had to ask our waitress to check on the replacement steak after 25 minutes or so. This resulted in our entire group being finished with their main course by the time it arrived. The person who ordered the steak had also filled up on the sides given with the steak at this point( Brussel sprouts and carrots if I remember correctly which were very good).

For dessert we shared the creme brûlée which was delicious and was comped due to the issue with the steak.

Overall we had a delicious dinner however I feel we were unfortunate with the kitchen/wait staff being overwhelmed with a packed restaurant which resulted in minor issues becoming bigger than they needed to be.

Food was great and service was amazing. We were just unlucky to sit next to a very loud table and staff did not do anything about it. But overall a good steakhouse . The wine was simply amazing. Note that one wine our first choice was not available, and this one was Sonoma, not Napa. So the wine menu needs an uplift!

The food and outdoor seating was outstanding. Best prime rib I’ve had in years. Perfectly cooked to order. The Caesar salad came with real fresh marinated anchovies, not those tinned ones, and a terrific dressing. Pricing is substantial but more than fair. It was Christmas Eve so they were stretched thin and forgot my wife’s birthday candles which was difficult but they comped the dessert (didn’t help but was a proper gesture). It’s a fine establishment.

Apparently, Izzys has new ownership-and the changes do not seem to be for the better. Service disorganized, and very leisurely. Front of house managers standing by the door doing not much of anything, while confused/inexperienced servers spend more time apologizing than doing anything else. Latino bussers/backwaiters are the only people on the floor showing hustle. Bar took forever to make cocktails, food is so-so at this point and I was up-charged $5 for requesting an end cut of prime rib. Been going to Izzy's for 25+ years, and this was a really mediocre experience. Won't be back...

I’ve worked in the restaurant biz for over 20yrs and this was one odd experience. There were 4 of us and 2 of us are fairly regular at Izzy’s. When I approached the man ‘host’ outside the restaurant and said ‘my name and party size checking in’ he literally looked at me like I was from Mars. A long pause, no greeting just a stare as if, ‘so what’. No checking his screen for the resy, nothing. Finally, as if he doing us a favor, he pulled out some menus and pointed to a table on the sidewalk that was kind of breezy but we tried it. It was not comfortable for a couple of us. A nice woman mgr/host who was the only one who had a sense of the ‘hospitality’ biz told us we could have certain table in the covered outdoor area when it opened, however, when it did another mgr/host said we couldn’t as it was for another party. OK, stuff happens. We went inside. There seemed be a lack of communication and ‘edgy’ attitude from some of the people running the front of the house. Sad, that’s a guests first contact with a restaurant and sets a tone for the evening.
I kind of get it. Covid restrictions, being out of items due to ‘supply’ chain stuff then factoring in large holiday parties takes its toll on staff.
Izzy’s menu and food has really stepped up the last couple years. I was happy a spot in my hood could be welcoming place to dine. I have another resy next Saturday night. We requested outdoor seating as one of the guests has to be outside due to covid. We booked Izzy’s due to its nice covered outdoor seating. Hoping we get seated in the covered area and regain our trust.

Had a great meal food wise. The restaurant was super busy so service was slow but I accept that will happen over the holidays.
Unfortunately while sitting at my table I was approached by an old lady in an adjacent table who told me that I was speaking far too loud and was extremely rude to me (the other people dining at my table confirmed that I was not loud) But she seemed irritated by the loud noise in the restaurant.
I don’t know why I was targeted but it was actually quite upsetting so despite the good food I don’t think I’ll be returning to the restaurant. Credit to one of the staff Ivan/Ivor Who tried to usher away as he could see how upset I was but the damage was done. I could not enjoy myself after that.

A memorable evening was had by my son, his fiancée, my husband and I at Izzy’s. We were in San Francisco visiting from Boston and needed a reservation for a Monday night dinner. We chose Izzy’s for that reason, but ended up being treated to an exceptional dining experience. The “holiday mixed grille” which I understand to be a new option for four was very special offering something for everyone. My particular favorite were the grilled prawns, while my husband especially liked the prime rib. Son got to experience duck sausage with a cranberry sauce and the pork was a particular favorite of my future daughter-in-law. We were moved to a booth in the back which made a big difference because it was important to carry on conversation. The service was absolutely top notch and all of the staff really made us feel special. A highlight was when the chef came to our table to greet us and this was followed up by flaming baked Alaska! Went home with leftovers.

I’m not saying it will always be bad, because it’s sometimes good.
Last night the waitress was very nice but the food was poor.
Rack of lamb - unbelievably greasy.
Sherry mushrooms - tasteless
Caesar salad - absolutely terrible, bland and bad tasting
Wonderful was the martini, the zinfindel, and the deserts.
