    It was my first time at Isabella's, and I will most definitely be going back. When we first arrived, the manager, Victor, came over and introduced himself. He was extremely friendly and welcoming and has an amazing sense of humor. The food quality was spectacular, and everything was fresh and tasted delicious. The service was great, our glasses never went empty, and the food came out promptly even though the restaurant was busy. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and will absolutely be visiting again in the future.

    Issabella's was a great place to celebrate a birthday! The ambience was very nice, the food was delicious, and the service (our server was Cynthia) was fantastic! I do wish there were a few more vegetarian entre options but otherwise would highly recommend others to give this place a shot!

    Definitely the best bet on Lincoln Rd. Food was delicious and the service was almost TOO enthusiastic (hard to believe in Miami). I also really appreciated their having a nonalcoholic wine option. The inside room is really lovely (note to owners - the banquet seats are too low for the tables unless you are tall and the music is a bit too loud.) I’m happy to support this local gem.

    We found out first-hand why it hasn’t been busy since it opened When looking over the menu, we decided to try out the Seafood Paella. At $65, we assumed that it’s high price meant that it was their signature dish. We were warned that it would take 25 minutes. We had the time so why not? Less the 15 minutes later (sooner, I believe) came an 8” shallow ceramic bowl with very oily saffron rice, four clams, two mussels, maybe five pieces of squid, and one langoustine tail This dish was miserable- nothing remotely close to what anyone would expect - it was poorly prepared and, at most, should have been a $27 dish. It was edible, but barely. The tuna crisp was good. The iberico ham looked like leftovers- although the bread that came with was delicious The pleasant waiter and diligent floor manager can only do so much to give the diner a good experience. The kitchen has to deliver. We asked the waiter if he had heard any complaints about the paella. His response was that he was new and we were only the third table to order it and the second to complain. I never like to write bad reviews, but I hope management pursues these reviews to confirm that the food is killing this restaurant. It will not survive without a serious menu overhaul. I’d wait until that time to try this oaken out

    Normally I don’t recommend people eat at restaurants along Lincoln road as they tend to be tourist traps which offer subpar food to travelers who will never become regulars. Issabella’s however is the real deal. I don’t know who designed the interior but it’s simplistic elegance makes it great for both dates or for a group of friends. The service is consistently wonderful and you can tell that whoever is preparing the food takes pride in their creations. Try the swordfish!!

He made us feel very important and had that magic touch that made the evening one that we will not forget. Thank you!!

The food and drinks were delicious, we had the paella for two people and it was one of the best ones I’ve ever had, the service was outstanding and the manager Victor came to the table to make sure everything was perfect and made sure we were having a great time. I would 100% come back!!!

    The food quality, service, and ambiance at Isabella’s are a step above most of the Lincoln road restaurants. I have been there, probably ten times and have never been disappointed. The beef carpaccio and calamari are excellent and they have a solid wine list. While we love to sit outside and people watch, the inside is beautiful as well.

    My wife and I enjoyed our 2nd anniversary dinner Saturday night. Sat outside and watched the world go by. Excellent food and wine. Ricky our waiter is a rookie, very eager to learn, converse and made the evening fun. Recommend the swordfish, lambchops and tuna crudo. Enjoy y'all and Happy Holidays.

    Me and my husband celebrated our 3yr anniversary. With our schedule it’s been so difficult to find a perfect place and time to have a romantic dinner, however, we decided to drive 45min because of this incredible restaurant. Issabella’s gave us not just a great experience with their awesome staff, delicious food and beautiful place but left us with a bunch of great memories that we are going to remember forever. The manager Victor is one of the most knowledgeable, friendly and helpful person that I’ve ever met, unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the waitress but she definitely exceeded our expectations as well. Thank you Issabella’s you have a wonderful team and we look forward to coming back soon!!

    Our meatballs were raw. The filet mignon was not the greatest quality. The calamari was rubbery. The branding was good. The mushroom salad was tasty but overdressed. We sat outside but the ambiance was not great. The service was ok. The waiter tried to reconcile the situation but given how many issues we had they should have comped some of the meal. We would not go back. Sad as I remember this place being very good at one time.

    I’ve been to Issabella’s several times now and the food never disappoints. Victor, the Manager, is always wonderful and helpful. This has become one of my fav restaurants in Miami. The meatballs as an appetizer and swordfish as a main are a perfect combo. Look forward to my next visit.

    We have just returned from several weeks in Spain and Portugal and we could not wait to return to Issabella's. It feels like a home away from home for us. The service continues to be unmatched on South Beach and comparable to the wonderful experiences we have overseas at the best of the best restaurants. The food at Issabella's continues to evolve and we so appreciate the managers and owners welcoming our feedback. The place gets better and better each and every time. Tonight we had the paella and were quite thrilled to see it on the menus. It was delicious! We also were treated to a lovely cava, a wonderful crema Catalana and several aperitivos to end the meal. Victor, the host and manager, was lovely, warm and welcoming as always. Cynthia was a dream of a server as she always is. Francisco was charming, affable and attentive, and VK was an elegant new addition to the team. We on South Beach continually complain about the restaurants that are too cheap and those that are too pricey but this one is just what we need. Please go. Make it your second home as we have. And just sit back and enjoy the experience. It is a first class establishment that gets better each time and we have been at least 10 times. May it last forever 💙

    We were so excited to find an excellent new neighborhood restaurant. Our first time at Isabelle was great but then the second time the fish was dry and the food not that great. Hoping that this little gem can turn itself around so that the food is consistent. Service on the other hand is excellent.

    I and a wonderful time the restaurant is beautiful. The atmosphere is very warm, friendly and inviting. The drinks are very creative and elegant. The food is amazing. I had the eggplant very delicious and authentic with a twist of modern flavors. The filet was cooked to perfection and it was mouth watering. My fiance had the paella he said it reminded him of our trip to spain where we went for our wedding. We had that lava cake for desert with a sweet glass of wine. I'm very happy with our server and the manager Victor was friendly, polite and attentive. I'm so glad I went there for dinner. Will be coming back to try more Mediterranean dishes.

    This was cute but definitely designed for tourists. Food was fine but nothing outstanding. Same with wine list. Service interactions were nice but it was hard to get their attention, even though it was practically empty for our 8pm reservation. Music was loud but not crazy. FYI there is outdoor seating, even though I hadn’t seen it in the pics.

    Issabella’s was great! We got several tapas: the calamari (fantastic), bruschetta (good, nothing special), gambas (very good). Next, we got a Greek salad. This was probably our least favorite dish. Finally, we split the chicken for our main. This was overall good, but the lime mayo made the dish. We each got a gin and tonic to drink, which were very good. Overall, I’d recommend if you’re stopping over in South Beach!
