We ate at ISA for dinner after attending a concert at The Golden Gate Yacht Club and Just wanted to dine at a restaurant close by in the Marina. We found ISA restaurant on line and we were really pleased with how well the food was prepared, the energy of the place and the excellent service!

Food was excellent, and service attentive. We sat in the window set back from the street and really enjoyed the environment, too. The risotto and grilled calamari were particularly well cooked and delicious.

Absolutely fabulous evening. I'm incredibly difficult to please and I had a smile on my face throughout the entire meal. Our server, Dean, was completely delightful and the food was delicious. The only challenge was picking what to eat as the entire menu looked incredible! HIGHLY recommend.

Terrible service. We got there at 8:45 and by 10:45 we still hadn’t received our entree. The waiter rudely told us he forgot to put in our entree then asked “do you even want it?” Totally rude and ruined our Valentine’s Day. We ended up just leaving and not having our dessert. Will never return

Really nice staff and delicious food. The mushroom risotto is great. On the pricey side for food, but not overwhelming. A little slow with coming to our big group of 8 with taking orders, drinks, etc in the beginning. Otherwise, a staple restaurant and one that I'll come back to frequently.

Hey find meal with our son who is visiting from Tokyo. Among other things we had crab salad, Muscles, fish of the day, Lamb and tuna tartare. All were excellent. Our server was great. My only complaint is that the ambience was nothing special and the tables were too close together. That aside we are Shirley to go back because of the quality Of the cuisine.

Isa is amazing. I have been twice now: once with a group of 5 other people and we sat in the lovely outdoor space in the back of the restaurant, and once for a date. Between the 2 visits, since this is a share plates kind of place, I have had almost everything on their menu and every single item was delicious. Definitely a gem in the Marina/Cow Hollow area.

Loved it! This is my second visit to Isa in the past two weeks. It is that good and the service is that great! Jonathan was our server on both occasions. His ability to make you feel welcome and knowledge of the food and wine list is a bonus to the entire experience. What a delight! You can’t go wrong with any of the menu choices. Each one is different and every bite is delicious.

I have been twice before and was impressed, but this time it was a disappointment. We visited during restaurant week and the entire place was packed. The food options were good, but everything felt rushed and mass produced. The dishes came out at different times, but they weren't designed to be family style or tapas so it left one person just watching the other eat. The bread and butter was good and I loved the creme brûlée. For the high price tag I would expect much better service and food quality.
