“Gorgeous view, great food”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This place has a great view of the city from Mt Washington. The food is wonderful. Portions are small. I would suggest getting the tasting menu. It is $75 but then you don't miss out on some fabulous choices. I had the chocolate dessert. Not to be missed!

“Sublime”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

This one word, sublime, sums up this destination eatery.
The owner went out of his way to return us to our vehicles after we used the wrong incline and parked or whole group at Station Square. The next year we visited, with our large group, we made sure to use the correct incline!
Isabella has the view and the tastiest menu.
Thank you, George and staff!

“Nice view but overpriced”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The view from this restaurant is very nice, the Pittsburgh skyline especially lovely at night. The food, however, was not worth the high price. I'd give this one a miss.

“Great view...food just ok”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

The view is the main attraction. We only had a la carte, so can't comment on the menu. Had ribeye and soup. Both were ok but nothing more. Reception was nice and welcoming, service good. As others I do not see what should make this an especially romantic place.

“Great food in addition to great views”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

We visited our families in Pittsburgh, and went to Isabela to celebrate our quadruple birthday, including two big ones. And we are really happy with our choice. We dined in Isabela two years before, and views of course are as good now as then. But food significantly improved with the new chef Alan Peat. His multi-course dinner was creative and perfectly balanced at the same time. Great evening all around!
