    Incredible experience dining with Isabelle. Our waitress was kind and helpful, allowing us to try a few wines before we selected the perfect bottle to accompany our anniversary meal. The food was exceptional - we shared the hummus, olives, squash donut and ribeye. While everything was very tasty, the squash donut was star of the show! The restaurant was bright and beautifully decorated, very new and clean. Will not hesitate to return for a meal for a special occasion, and would be suitable for business meals as well.

    We shared the hummus appetizer with beautiful warm pita bread. I had the seafood pesto pasta and my friend had the king salmon. Food was delish and we washed it down with a gorgeous Cabernet (Lotus) from Paso Robles, Ca. The server was very knowledgeable of the menu and was very solicitous. Overall a lovely evening at a beautiful restaurant by the Lake.

    We had Reserved for 8:00 pm but we had to wait for 1 hour and 10 minutes to have our table ready, we sat by 9:10pm ! We were offered free desserts and drinks but that’s not the point. They should create time slots and give customers 1:30 or 2:00 hours dinning time so others that have reserved don’t wait for That long.

    Isabelle Restaurant + LoungeResponded on January 25, 2023Thank you Anonymous, We appreciate you taking the time to share your constructive feedback with us. The team did tried to avoid a longer than usual wait but a couple large tables mixed up the usual flow. We do have pre-set time slots within booking tables and it normally works very well and is fair to all our guests. I understand that our efforts did not made the longer wait go away, we are truly sorry that it happen to your group. Thank you for your interest in our restaurant. The Isabelle Team

    Absolutely the worst restaurant experience! We took my sister for her birthday dinner here and we reserved a table for 7:45pm. They proceeded to take us to the bar area and it seemed like a lot of people were waiting for their table. We waited AN HOUR for our table.. how is it possible to reserve a table and then wait a whole hour????? That’s ridiculous. Once we were seated we ordered our food immediately bc we were starving..the waiter was so inattentive my mom felt she was ‘abandoned’ bc the waiter approached us only twice the entire time . We waited about 45 minutes for our food and we were so excited to just eat something bc we were starving!! When it arrived the portions were so small we left even hungrier than we came. 250 dollars and 3 hours later…. not a good experience. Since we were staying in the hotel we immediately went back up to our rooms and ordered a ton of McDonald’s and that was 100x better than the crud service and meal we got from this place.

    Isabelle Restaurant + LoungeResponded on January 25, 2023Hi JessicaT Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are very sorry again for the wait on Saturday night, unfortunately, the team tried hard to avoid this to happen but the flow of the evening became challenging due to multiple large tables. I know the team apologized and try to rectify the situation but if feels like we lost the chance to do well. We came across all the other reviews from your family on the other platforms. Please accept our sincere apologies The Isabelle Team

    My wife and I both had pasta, she had the seafood and pesto I have the mushroom gnocchi. Both were brilliant. Dessert was the olive oil cake and was delightful and we shared the whipped feta and olives as an app. Really interesting flavours in every dish, very attentive staff, especially the sommelier Brie who paired some lovely wines with our meals, including a Non alcoholic cocktail for my pregnant wife and a Non alcoholic sparkling wine which was really good too

    The burrata with pistachios and grilled foccacia was delicious but the burrata was too cold. The salmon melted in your mouth but the bok choy was dry - it needed more olive oil. Julia was amazing. The servers would have been more congruent with the surroundings if the fabric for their uniforms was more upscale (silk, linen); the colours themselves are beautiful.

    The food and service were excellent, however the noise level was quite high and tables were fairly close together for parties of 2, so if looking for a quiet or private chat with someone, this may be difficult. Overall, it was a fun evening with great entertainment on New Year’s Eve.

    We had high hopes for this place. The feature was a surf and turf with a 16oz bone in strip loin and a giant prawn for $80. 3 of us ordered the feature all medium rare. All 3 steaks came completely over cooked and well done with a not so giant prawn. At that price we sent them back for new steaks. The second round was cooked properly but the meal was ruined for the 4th person who basically ate alone while waiting for our steaks. Over cooking a good steak is a rookie move for a place like this with these prices. The service was great and everyone very accommodating. Not sure we’ll be back. So many other good places to eat in this area.

    Isabelle Restaurant + LoungeResponded on January 2, 2023Hello anonymous, Thank you for your constructive review and for taking the time to share with us. I did tried to recover our mistake and work with our kitchen to prepare the 3 new steaks, We did offer to replace the short ribs of the lady that was waiting for the 3 of you to get the new steaks Please accept our sincere apologies on mis-cooking the steaks. We added some notes into our database and will be well prepare for your next visit if you ever chose to join us again. The Isabelle Team

    Typically this is one of our favourite spots and the food is excellent but this time it was not. We arrived at 715 and they were already out of 2 of the drinks on their cocktail menu. When asked if they could make a regular whiskey sour the server complained that they were down bartenders so it would be difficult. When asked for recommendations about the best items on the menu she was evasive and seemed like she wasn’t familiar with the items and which ones were good. The food was not nearly as good as it normally is. The best thing we ordered would have been the apple pecan salad. We also had the burrata, king salmon and short rib. The short rib beef was good but the accompaniments were strange and everything seemed like it could have used a bit more salt. We will be back but that was the worst meal I’ve ever eaten there.
