Room for improvement. Service was really struggling - 3 hostesses having difficulty with triage, no attention for the first 20m we were seated, very uneven wine pour, and a server who added his own tip for only a 3 top. The appetisers were excellent but the risotto was soupy and the pasta was greasy.

This was our first time at Isabelle's Osteria and we were very pleased with the experience. The front was all open to the street which contributed to the noise level but we were still able to carry on a conversation. And we were all overwhelmed at the excellent food. My two friends had the Mushroom Lasagna and I had the Tagliatelle Bolognese. Everyone should be able to find something pleasing in the wine selection selection. We look forward to another opportunity to dine at Isabelle's.

Very few place are willing to offer brunello by the glass. Well done! I really enjoyed being able to have a glass of the top drawer wines. Thank you!

Had a lovely evening. Food was delicious. Had a very very noisy table sit next to us so ruined the experience a bit. Otherwise would recommend to friends and family.

The food was delicious but by the end of our meal (7: 30 ) or so the room was too noisy and warm. to be fair it was a very hot day in NYC so I would not hold the temperature against them.

What a pleasant surprise. We chose this restaurant because my wife's name is Isabelle. Food was fantastic. Pastas freshly made and cooked perfectly. Jocelyn, our server, was terrific. This is a high energy restaurant worthy of a visit. I know we will be returning very soon.

Food was overpriced and bland. Service was slow and sloppy. The server spilled our wine and didn’t offer to get us more. Seemed like a tourist trap and not a place I’d visit again. The only good thing was the guy who filled our water was on top of it. Otherwise not a great experience.

This was one of the best Italian meals we have ever had! The burrata appetizer was to die for and the Lumache pork ragu was BEYOND delicious. Our waiter was lovely - absolutely delighted he could offer us such an amazing meal. Loved every bite. There are 1,000 places to eat in NYC, so I hate to ever repeat...but I would put this on my "go again" list for sure.

Great food, cocktails and vibe! Great set-up with the mix of indoor and outdoor dining options. Very lively but not too loud - a great mix. Would definitely add this spot to my list to come back even after Restaurant Week.

Restaurant week was a great deal! $39 for a three course meal!

Had the arugala salad, lumache (pork ragu) and olive oil cake. Very delicious!

The cocktails were also good! Would recommend!

My friends and I came here for Restaurant week. They did NOT honor the menu. Unlike other restaurants that indicated they didn’t offer the promotion on Saturday and Sunday (e.g. The Smith, Bar Boulud) this one did not. When we brought this to their attention, the manager said they would instead give us some appetizers at a reduced cost and told us to pick a few out. We picked out the cauliflower, meatballs, and calamari. They gave us those three plus an extra cauliflower. When the bill came, they charged us for all three at regular price and gave us the extra cauliflower for “free.”
We weren’t planning on ordering any appetizers after finding out the Restaurant week menu wasn’t being offered and unfortunately were deceived into ordering some when the manager found out we were only going to order entrees. To top it off, they also didn’t bring our table any bread and service was very slow.

Great bartenders and drinks. Waiter at table was fine. Didn’t like that we were starving and wanted to put in our appetizer order before dinner. His Overall attitude not great. You could see the restaurant manager berating several employees so that was a bit annoying. The food was great - we had mushroom lasagna which was my favorite. The arugula salad, burrata and chicken were good in that order. I would go back.

Restaurant was jammed and not enough servers or bartenders as it took forever to get drinks and food…..bus boys were awesome though. Also, they had a problem with the rest rooms so they were closed - not great when the restaurant is jammed…had to use a small restroom in the kitchen area which was really dirty…have eaten here several times and this was a disappointment …
