Food was absolutely fantastic. We loved everything we ate and would come back for the food. We had the buratta and the pesto it came with was so flavorful. The zucchini salad was fresh and bright. My favorite was the mushroom and spinach lasagna and my husband really enjoyed the lamb pappardelle. The restaurant was very loud and it was very hard to hear the people at our table.

Every aspect of the dining experience at Isabell’s osteria was great but the noise level and the loud music was not, that is my only criticism. Great new spot.

We had an amazing dinner. The food is really good.
The bar was overloaded with orders so we got our drinks very late. The music was extremely high in the outdoor cabines. So between cars, high music volume and people screening, I was happy to leave, and give my ears some rest. The service (waiters) and food were outstanding. Pasta dishes are super good. A place where I would like to come, especially if they lower the music.

Beverages and appetizers on a sweltering Manhattan evening -- what else can you ask for!

We had the burrata, meatballs & beet salad. All delicious!

My boyfriend and I cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant. The food is fantastic, the service is top-notch and Myles, the manager, is the sweetest, most accommodating person I've ever met in the service industry. We will continue to visit this restaurant and recommend it to anyone and everyone looking for a five star experience.

For our friends first birthday brunch since the pandemic began, isabelle’s could not have been a better choice for us. Our waitress was super attentive and friendly. Whenever we were low on our brunch drinks, she would always come by for a quick refill or ask us if we wanted to switch things up. The food was absolutely phenomenal. It was just such a great place and experience all around and we couldn’t have asked for a better restaurant for a birthday brunch.

This was the perfect antidote to a rainy Sunday of a holiday weekend ! The service was great, from the smiling hostess to our wonderful waitress. The food is delicious, and tons of selections. Highly recommend!

There's a new LOBSTER FRA DIAVOLO on the menu and I went for that specifically! But I couldn't not get the new salmon crudo, the spring Casarecce Primavera and of course, the Pork Chop Milanese! The music was so fun, I wanted to sing along and bop to all of it. AND the wine list!!! So many great options at fair prices that I had trouble choosing, and thankfully the General Manager helped me narrow it down. I had a great time sitting at the bar with a friend sharing a bunch of things. Delicious! And all of the servers are so attractive & friendly! Just saying 😉

Everything we ordered tasted great potions were good. The service was fair at best hostess was very nice our waiter for the most part ignored us the music was too loud it should be in the background not like a club where you could hardly hear the people at your table. Overall I would give it another go

Service was very slow and inconsistent. Tables around us were served bread, our table was not, even after requesting. Food was reminiscent of something served at a diner, but at upscale price. Salad was smothered in extra cheese which made it unappetizing. Brazino was over cooked and very spicy. Pasta was poorly made. When bill was presented on tablet device, the server had selected a 20% gratuity instead of leaving that decision to us. This was very annoying, especially concerning the poor service provided. We will not return to this establishment and recommend others skip them as well.

Food was amazing. I think the restaurant was a bit understaffed so we waited awhile before we got our water. Overall though, I would come back again in a heartbeat.

One other thing - several parties were seated at this one table and both left to move somewhere else. No one came to sanitize the table.

Food was fine but over-priced for what it was. We were seated outside and, even outdoors, the background noise level was insane. Between speakers right above our heads, the noise of the interior of the restaurant, and the traffic, it was not very pleasant. Server was gruff and abrupt also. Overall not worth it

Beautiful day in NYC, felt the vibe coming back! The atmosphere, service & food at Isabelle's were all fabulous! I sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender about this momentous occasion! Sat outside and had a fabulous brunch with an old friend. A perfect NYC day!

Food was excellent and beautifully presented. Service was spotty. We had to call for a waiter and the waiters were uncertain as to which were their tables. However, when the coffee was served cold, the wait staff remedied the situation immediately.

Menus is diverse and interesting. Why is no bread served? It would work well with salads

It’s a beautiful restaurant, the food is great. It was a little too loud in there, the service was a bit slow, we had to keep looking for our waiter. It’s different because usually Manhattan waiters check on you very frequently. Maybe they were short staffed. As an Italian restaurant I expected some bread, olive oil or olives to be brought to the table, but we got nothing other than our dinner plates we ordered.
