Fantastic staff and delicious food. Really good service. Noise level quite high, so not somewhere for a quiet meal. Money worth the food you get. Would recommend and would go back if I was in the area again.

Simply terrific. All the dishes were outstanding. The Drunken Shrimp was to die for. Dip bread in that sauce and wait for heaven to appear in your mouth. The skirt steak was so tender and tasty, the Creme Brulee amazing. The waiter was fine nothing great but not bad, BUT the guys bringing water and bread were tremendously attentive. LOVED IT!!!!!

THE place to go if you want a decent steak for a reasonable price. Cocktails were OK, but I'm rating the food here. So 5 stars for the New York and 3 stars for the Manhattans.

I like this place but unfortunately the service was terrible and our steaks were dry. Neither was cooked medium rare or medium well like we asked. They were well done on the outside and completely rare and cold in the middle. The potatoes were amazing though!

Our reservation was for 8pm. We were seated once we arrived. The decor very old fashion and uncomfortable. Food wasn’t as great as the first time I visited. The cioppino lack flavor. Very watery and the calamari was very chewy. The chicken entree was enjoyable as well as the roasted mussels. Overall experience was great because of Joeal (hope spelling is correct) was an wonderful host! She’s outstanding!

-side note staff should check cleanness of dishes and silverware before delivery to guest. My bowl and spoon prep dish for cioppino was but noticeable dirty. (Dry/hard food was stuck to bowl and spoon)

Service was great. Tasty steaks. Only downside is the tables are very close together so private conversations are difficult as is getting out of the bench seat side of the tables.

Out for a birthday dinner. Seated upstairs with a young child. Right nearby a Private room party had been over served and were drunk upon arrival as half of the guests stumbled, fell, or were bleary eyed and mouth agape disjointed when reaching the top of the stairs near our table. Drunk and cursing they made their way to the back as the male members of the private party shouted over the general din of the restaurant drunkenly greeting their comrades. The bread was the first thing to arrive at the table. Then the water. When the server did appear we ordered. The table next to us put in their order shortly after. The table next to us had finished their entrees before we got our salads. Raw chicken was served at the table. Drinks asked for repeatedly. I had to finally go downstairs to ask for help because none was available. Bless the young lady serving downstairs on the main floor “Kate” who took a moment to help a customer from another section because everyone else was too busy. Not one employee had their eyes up to scan the room except her. That’s outrageous. Nothing said either about the delay or the raw chicken, or poor service. Yes I still tipped, because that’s what you do. Not outrageously like I usually do however. From eating regularly at the bar to now having this experience on the floor is quite saddening. Poor form.

We have been to Izzy’s a few times and it’s always an awesome experience. We went Valentines Day and the service was terrible! My spouses cocktail order was incorrect. Both of our food orders were wrong. The waitress took our orders and we didn’t see her for over 30mins. We had to have ask one of the food runners to have our order corrected. When the waitress finally showed up we were done eating and my husband’s incorrect drink was completely watered down. She was a terrible waitress and we were very disappointed. We will go back to give them another try when it’s not so busy because the food is good and a great value.

We came here after our wedding ceremony on Valentine's Day. The host was awesome, and a true native of San francisco, which is hard to find. Awesome host, the service we received was great, they made us feel comfortable. The food was awesome and the desserts were to die for. We had a ball. Thanks again Izzy's for making our Wedding dinner a success. We'll be back for our first anniversary, or sooner. :)

Very good steak, we ordered the blackened filet mignonette which was excellent, but was a little surprised when the bill came which showed a $4 charge for bacon and cheese on the baked potato, I guess I didn’t pay enough to what I agreed to on the potato. The service was a little slow (it was crowded) and the busboys seemed a little confused on who ordered what at the tables but all of the waitstaff was very friendly and apologetic for the service issues.

Our server was FANTASTIC! She guided us to the best options based on what we craved,...Great Value.
(I believe her name was Joelle?). I highly recommend Izzys. FYI, the muscles were amazing, and we both soaked up the leftover garlic oil with the sourdough French bread. The chocolate desert, mouse/cake, was the best I've had in years. I'm going back!!

My boyfriend and I were really excited to try this place out because we heard good things from a friend but was pretty disappointed. We went for restaurant week and got the fried oysters and prime rib, medium-rare. Oysters were good, but the prime rib was dry and bland. Not a big fan of Izzy's after this visit, but maybe we'll try something else there if we ever go back.

second time here and i'll definitely be back again. great atmosphere, awesome steaks, and great service. marred somewhat on this occasion by being simply too popular -- although we had a reservation, there was no one to greet us on entry, we had to jostle with the throng of waiting walk-ins and the crowd at the bar, and the noise level was... intense. Also felt the maitre d' was a bit brusque, so the welcome could definitely be better.
That said, noise level in the dining area itself isn't *quite* so bad, service was prompt (perhaps a bit too quick - we were done and out the door in 1h and that was for starter + main).
Quantity and quality cannot be beaten. It's a neighborhood gem.

The worst service ever. We had a reservation at 9 p.m. we get there and the door was locked and we knocked on the window and the employees inside ignored us but finally the owner comes and unlocks the door for us. We were seated and waited 10 minutes to get bread and water my hubby ordered a bottle of wine and the waitress brought us wine glasses but no wine we waited another 15 minutes and no service whatsoever so we got up and left. Never again would I go there and I will not reccomend this restaurant.

It was a bit disappointing. My filet was a bit overcooked and dry. My wife's salmon was very good however. Our server was not very attentive. Might have been because of the Groupon, who knows. Just had higher expectations. Too many other places in the City to go to not have a great meal
