We love the ambiance at Ysabl and even though the brunch is more expensive than it should be we've come back a few times. This was the second time we had to wait for our food (45min), about 30min in the waitress came up with a terrible excuse why it was running late and gave us a plate of pastries that had obviously been sitting (the butter on the plate was half melted). It was obvious she forgot to put the order in, had she been honest and given us something we actually wanted instead of a bunch of refined sugar from another table that didn't want it, we would not have batted an eye.

The worse customer service I’ve ever experienced. Table was late and when we finally got our table they sat us at 4 person table and we were 5. When we asked for a bigger table the manager said “ we don’t need your business you can leave or take this table”.

Ysabel is such a treasure. The ambiance is so inviting, with the trees and the lights and the al fresco feel. Everything we ordered was delicious! The specialty drinks, the artichoke tortellini, the sashimi and the steak were exactly what we hoped for! Our waitress was so friendly and professional. We will definitely return and recommend Ysabel to friends.

Loved everything about this place - a little pricey but honestly worth it! The food was amazing (flatbread, heirloom tomato salad, black truffle risotto, and amazing artichoke (or asparagus?) tortellini), the cocktails were fun and the space is really phenomenal. Will definitely go again!

Lovely decor. Feels like you’re at someone’s house. Food is too greasy. Service needs improvement. Our server used one of our napkins to wipe off the table, then left it there...

It took 45 minutes to get our first drink. That was only after flagging the waiter down, and waiting an additional 10 minutes for him to come to our table. Worst service ever

The service was awful!! We could never find our waitress... we waited an hour before they took our order and then the food entrees came out piecemeal!! Half my family (if 4) got there food 25 min before the other half of us did... Also the fish portions were tiny! And when the day it comes with veges— you need a microscope to find them.... Ordering desert and coffee took another hour and then another on top of that just waiting for the bill!! The whole process took 3 hours...

Love the space, the food is good, but I can always do without the attitude from the hostess. Just sets a negative vibe. One was mice the other could use a long vacation.

I've been dining at Ysabel for years and it is a favorite. Usually the food, service, and ambiance are all top notch. This last time the ambiance, service, and even valet were all excellent. In regards to the food, 4 dishes were ordered, 2 were excellent and 2 were ok. Maybe it was because we strayed from our usual dishes or their menu changed a bit.
