When we came into the restaurant this evening, it was semi-crowded. Half an hour later, the restaurant was in full swing. The interior is very nice, modern very homey kind of feel.

Pros: We we’re greeted at the door by a charming young lady named Megan, she was just a sweetheart! For dinner, I had the lemucha. It was very good. The rigatoni was cooked Al dente and the ricotta with the hint of lemon with the pork ragu was great. My husband had the mushroom lasagna which was also noteworthy.

Cons: Our waiter seemed to haves been stretched thin. We were left to our own devices a little too long. No bread service. We were starving by the time the waiter got to us. Some bread to help stave off the hunger would have been nice!

All in all a good experience!

Food was delicious as were our drinks. Drinks took awhile to come to the table and it was hard to get the waitress’s attention.

Tucked in here for an impromptu lunch on a cold winter day. The host and servers were friendly and helpful… the mushroom lasagna memorable! Adding to restaurant to my NYC gold list.

We made a reservation for a late lunch on my birthday. I wanted to avoid crowds due to the Covid surge & figured a 3:00 pm lunch would be safe. It was perfect, no one else was there other than staff. Service was obviously excellent, and the atmosphere was perfect - they were playing upbeat music that put me in a great mood. I had the Pompelmo cocktail to start - delicious! We shared the calamari appetizer, it was perfectly cooked. My husband had the hanger steak which was also cooked perfectly & the butterball potatoes were so tasty. I had the mushroom lasagna which was so flavorful, it was a very decent portion. Our lunch was such an enjoyable experience and I can’t wait to visit again soon! 100% recommend Isabelle’s!

Came here for NYE, so definitely different than a normal night because they had a DJ. Food was delicious, and you can tell the pasta is made fresh. So good. Service was average. Host staff was very friendly. Would come here again

The Mushroom Lasagne was nothing like the picture. It was very dry with little mushrooms and spinach and no cheese taste at all. The hostess was very polite but didn’t even knew that they accepted Apple Pay. Main course plus espresso was 38$. Very poor experience, would not recommend.

Second time here and the food and drink quality is still 💯
Ordered the lumache, spaghetti and meatballs, and pork chop milanese and all three dishes were phenomenal. For dessert we got the olive oil cake and gelato parfait; imo the olive oil cake was not as moist as it couldve been but the parfait tower was perfectly decadent!

We went for a very late lunch (after 3) on a Sunday. Only the brunch menu was available. Food is average at beat but the cauliflower was ok. All the food seem to be drowning in some type of dressing or oil.

The music was way too loud inside, also they seemed to play EDM music, which did not fit the overall environment we expected. They also didn’t let you add a protein to any plates (i.e. a salad), which made it very hard for someone with a restricted diet to have a full meal. Wish these two issues didn’t impact the entire experience we had here.

The food was very good but the service could be improved. Several mistakes compounded one on top of the other: our order got mistaken, the waitress never brought the wine list we asked for, and she swiped a card without asking if the full amount was to be charged to that one card. Moreover, enclosed places, whether the original or new structures on the sidewalk, should not be called outdoor spaces. As long as there is no air flowing, that should not be allowed to be advertised as outdoor. The "outdoor area" of this restaurant, as it becomes colder, is completely enclosed.

Food was good, but we had a reservation at 7:30pm and were not seated until 8:15pm. We waited outside in the cold and no one came to check in on us or be apologetic about the long wait past our reservation. We kept taking the initiative to ask how much longer and all they told us was the other table is finishing up and we would be seated once they left. 40min wait time past your reservation is not a new york minute. In addition, they sat us at one of the few tables in the bar area (not the restaurant side), which happened to be right in front of the door. It was freezing and loud they whole time at dinner. The only good thing about this place was the food.

Service was attentive and efficient, and everything we ordered was delicious! Started with a Park Ave Passion cocktail and Margarita Verde, and had the fluke crudo and calamari as apps. Ordered the pumpkin pappardelle, lumache, and lamb for our entrées. Cannot wait to come back and try more items on the menu!
