“Don't get it”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We were in the area to see a concert on 10/22 (The show was awesome at the Kirby). We had checked on line for a nice restaurant and found the Isabella. It looked more like a bistro on their web site. It's with a athletic club in a building along the busy road. Greeting was fine, service was fine, food was lack luster. Nicely dressed young men at the bar telling dirty tales to our server. Guess they were regulars and this was ok. We started with wine, good, should be for $9 a glass in Wilkes Barre. Caesar salad was just limp and bland. Not sure how you can do bland with anchovy, lemon, egg and parm but they managed. The salmon was boring and without flavor. My companion had the pasta with crab meat that he liked but I thought it was rather pre-made tasting. 2 wines, 2 entrees and two small salads with tip were over $100. Sorry but this was not worth the effort or the money.

“once again, cant wait to go back”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Yeah, I need to find a better job to support my eating habits. If I could afford it, I would have lunch here every day. Went in to try some of the new fall menu. Amazing, I love it. I will find a reason to splurge and have lunch here again sooner than later.

“fabulous all around”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

we have been here several times and wonderful food, service, atmosphere. Whenever in town, we will eat here again. But why are they always half full at the most on weekends?

“Wasn't Impressed”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Restaurant conveniently located along a business road. We were traveling and spent a few days in the area and found this restaurant on trip advisor. Went in to celebrate an anniversary, but were not impressed with the menu or the service. It is pricy here, so we expected more. The appetizers were definitely better than the entrees, so my advice is to stick to the appetizers. The salads were very small portions for the price. We did like the wines we had.
