Went during restaurant wee! Every course was delicious, the service was great and such a beautiful ambiance while remaining safe as well.
Jimmy is an excellent server, who recommended the best pinot I’ve had in awhile... Bonneau.
Their restaurant week menu was amazing! Highly recommend
I haven’t been back to Isa in a long long time. I found that eat drink sf has made a connection for me. It triggers all my lovely memories with this restaurant. The food is still outstanding, the staff were beyond amazing. It’s just a cute restaurant with good ambience as always. I’m so so happy that this restaurant is still around despite the pandemic. We will be back for more!
Food was great! Our initial main waiter/server was great! However, saw that one of the server other gave one of our 2nd course to another table and ended up waiting a long time. It just totally mismatched the timing of the dishes coming out so instead of getting our courses together, we had to wait or not wait for the other person eat. I think they need to be more organized as I noticed when food was coming out, many didn’t know which tables they belonged too.
Please note this restaurant DOES NOT have 6 ft between tables and CRAMMS customers together.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ For food & service
ZERO for terrible management, specifically Sam & Pete.
Five course SF Restaurant Week menu for $65 each
Started with lobster broth, followed by Dungeness crab salad that was perfectly dressed. Next we had hamachi and prawns for third course both delicious! Entrees were halibut and lamb chops and both superb. Dessert wrapped up the evening with a perfect amaretto semifreddo!
Andrew, our server was amazing! Portions are generous.
Too bad that Sam (
EPIC FAILURE on behalf of Sam & Pete. We know that this pandemic is challenging for everyone, however to sacrifice customer service to maximize profits AND not practice 6ft distance between tables is WRONG!
They were simply too busy. For restaurant week they had a tasting menu at a fixed price , but had too many choices and the kitchen could not keep up. Food came at different times and after 2.5 hours we left without dessert.
Jimmy Hazard was the best server ever! Appreciate the dining outside and COVID safety precautions.
This was possibly the best 5 course meal for the price, that I have EVER experienced! Everything was delicious, with larger than expected serving sizes for all the courses, multiple choices for each course, and creative combinations. The patio was darling, and we felt the safety measures were appropriate.
We'll be back on a more regular basis!
Great taste and very friendly restaurant
Restaurant messed up our order. Took over an hour to get to course 2 of 5. Eventually we were served dessert before two other courses. Instead of fixing our order, the confused manager or owner came over to help, but quickly became very argumentative.
This our second visit and first visit after Covid19.
We sat out door front of the restaurant.
We ordered prefix menu. All dishes was so delicious!
Friendly service with great recommendations! Everything was delicious!
Great food. Dishes were creative and delicious. Serving size perfect for sharing. The server, host, and bussers were all friendly attentive and helpful. Definitely coming back!
Delicious food and excellent service. Specialty cocktails are average. Wine list is good. Mandatory service charge plus suggested tips equate to a 25%+ tip.
Always wonderful eating here. Love the outdoor dining.
Wonderful service. Thank you.
I've been going to Isa since it first opened. Great food, service was good enough considering Covid restrictions, and a cool place to hang...
What an amazing experience! The mussels were well seasoned, foie gras with figs were to die for! Scallops with mashed potatoes, duck with arugula salad, and the hanger steak were all superb! Our desserts vanilla affogato and vanilla creme brûlée didn’t disappoint too! Andrew was also great and such an entertainer! We will definitely come back again!
3 of our 4 food orders were incredible: The salad, the baked goat cheese, the hanger beef. On the other hand the "Rocky Chicken" was a seasoned breast with little juiciness or flavor.
Service was Covid typical: we were seated promptly (semi-indoor) , brought a carafe of water, and drink orders taken. But then, other workers deliver everything. We couldn't get our server's attention to refill a soda.
Masks (on patrons) came off as soon as drinks arrived, and stayed off as long as people were seated. SF is a party city, and we walked by numerous outdoor restaurants with people just drinking. Not very safe.
Food was excellent - we got the duck and scallops as main dishes. Waiter service was not good but overall we liked the experience!
Food was great, waiter Pete too was great.
Good service, amazing food, but a bit pricey.
Great service and great food
one of my fave restaurants in my hood - the all the seafood - Jim the waiter is terrific - the owner too - been there 2 times in 3 weeks - fabulous experience!
Highly recommend for a consistently
Isa is our neighborhood favorite. We only struggle ordering because we have so many favorites to choose from: the duck, chicken, risotto, crab salad and sashimi are just a few favorites. It’s always an amazing dinner with warm and friendly service. Thank you Isa !
Everything i eat here i.womder why i don't come more often... great value and delicious food!
Lovely outdoor space, cozy and very safe for covid. Heat lamps, open area, and spread out tables. Food is delicious, as always and service is excellent
Can never go wrong at this favorite restaurant. Love everything about it, and have for years.
Been a long time since my last visit. Brought friends from out of town. We chose variations of the prix fixe selections. From the fish, steak, and risotto they were all delicious and satisfying portions.. Sevice was outstanding and attentive. They rearranged tables for our party of six for social distancing. Even turned the house music down so we could hear each other talking. Merci
Waited for an hour with reservation. Waited for the food for 45 min between each course. Seemed like they were forgotten to be ordered.
Overall good but they were way too busy and we had to keep calling for help. Ended up leaving without ordering desserts.
Although they had plexiglass separating tables, we felt the tables were less than 6’ apart and more crowded than we would have liked.
Also, they gave us a cramped table for 6 - it was more for 4 people so that wasn’t very pleasant!
The service was great. Our reservation was at 800. It was a very busy night and we had to wait another 10 minutes past. They brought us a glass of Prosecco and said sorry for the wait. The meal itself was delicious! Everything was fresh and well executed. I will return.
the service & all of the food were excellent- Jim our waiter suggested a bottle of Chabis & we thoroughly enjoyed it too!
The restaurant has been open for 20 years and we can’t believe that we just now discover this gem in our backyard. Love the back patio and dinner was excellent!
Everything was very good as always, however, I was hoping to see better Covid precautions taken.
For example, both dirty dishes and glasses were taken away by those who also brought out food, drinks and clean silverware. Only the first set of silverware were wrapped in napkins. A system that would make us feel more comfortable would be where the servers, bussers, etc wore gloves. Blue to serve, black to remove, etc. I’ve seen other restaurants use a similar system and it felt safer and we felt more relaxed.
Also...although the menu online clearly says Happy Hour drink prices every day before 6:45, the new Maitre d seemed to think otherwise and told us “not on weekends”. I think he was incorrect and happen to like truth in advertising. The price difference is almost double. Decided not to order a second drink.
Food & service consistently great!
We had family visiting from Texas. We all enjoyed our time there. From the host to the busses to the server all was a very enjoyable experience. Even parking wasn’t a big issue.
