One of the worst Ysabel experience I ever had, it was taking them 45-50 min to get me one drink. Manager and server were nice but that was not enough, you guys ruined my Sunday night, you made me sit for an hour with no drinks and kept telling me that you guys closing at 10 pm and needed to order everything before the bar and kitchen closes (so I ordered 2 drinks ahead just for myself and one for my fiancé). After 50 min, the manager came with my 2 drinks and said that the two drinks were late will be on the house, EXCUSE ME! If I wanted to save money or get free stuff I could’ve went to a taco truck or some local cheap restaurant. Instead of giving me free drinks, stuff more bartenders/servers, or have limited tables. Avoid letting people book and waste their times with very poor quality of service. What a shame, waste of time, and money. They got me so disappointed. Even 0 star is a-lot.

We had a table for 4, my girlfriend and I arrive on time and my 2 friends are late. They don’t want to give us a table and we had to stay outside in the cold. No heaters.
The lady in the entrance is arrogant. Fortunately my friend who got late insisted to pay, I would not have left any tips.

I came here for the first time to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. We had a wonderful time. The service was slow, I had to ask a buss boy for my server. My drink and food was delicious and definitely worth the price. Great ambiance, would love to come again!

Our reservation was at 7:30 and we didn’t get seated until nearly 8:30. They were seating people that arrived after us first. The valet was not wearing a mask nor were the other guests in the waiting area. When we were seated our waitress continued to rush us and was not attentive to our needs. When our food arrived all our vegetables were cold and soggy. I would not choose this restaurant for a special occasion.

Definitely a new favorite! Everyone was friendly, they sat us for our reservation on time. They followed all COVID procedures. The prices are higher end but not outrageous, considering the portions are a good size. The environment was was gorgeous. I would definitely recommend.

Good out door space but we were on an upper terrace which was very dark, loud and very very cold. They only has one patio heater fir a table of 8.
Take a blanket or thick jacket with you

Ysabel would've gotten a 4-star review, but the host and one of our servers completely ruined our experience. We reserved our reservation at Ysabel two weeks in advance and were told to call back the week of our reservation to accommodate our party size and disability (as one of our guests had a disability). After numerous calls to confirm our party size, individual with a disability, and birthday reservation, to which no one answered, we arrived at Ysabel hoping to square things out with the hostess. Before I could even speak, the hostess cut me off and clearly had an attitude. Still trying to be respectful, I told the host about our accommodations to which she replied "I don't know who told you we could accommodate all of that, but I'll see what I can do". She said this in a curt and frankly rude manner- she continued by rolling her eyes and truly treating us like ants beneath her feet. Fortunately, a lovely server walked us to our table and the night went great. However, due to this server's attitude, I cannot say I will attend Ysabel again.
