    Unfortunately, not the experience/evening we were looking forward to. We were celebrating our anniversary and requested a table by the window with lake view, instead we were seated in the middle of the restaurant. It was very busy, with noise level quite loud, making it difficult to have a conversation. It took some time before a sever came to our table. We ordered martinis to start which arrived in a small cocktail /wine glass. Appetizers arrived , looked great, very tasty but over priced. They were out of the bottle of wine that we originally requested, in which the Sommelier offered us other options. Main dishes , looked great , but were over cooked and for portion size, over priced. Overall, not a pleasant experience and certainly not the evening we had expected for our anniversary.

    We had a dinner party of four for a birthday. The food was excellent. We had an appetizer that we shared, mains and the churros for dessert. The focaccia bread app was delicious and the dessert was outstanding. A couple is us had the tenderloin which was delicious while the others had octopus and a shrimp risotto dish. Everyone was very happy with their choices. When the server brought our desserts he had a candle and happy birthday written on the dish for the birthday boy. Overall loved our food and dinner experience. .

    Came here for a date night with the Hubby. Overall we love the atmosphere and vibe. Server was friendly. The tables were pretty close to one another so if you had a big group of people beside you that are loud talkers, it’s hard to converse with one another. Food presentation was amazing but taste was just ok,nothing to rave about. Menu options wasn’t that large. Experience it Atleast once and see for yourself

    Quite nice, coming here a few times a week now. Showed up on the patio launch by surprise but a nice surprise. The patio tables were receiving complimentary drinks and hor dourves but for an odd reason, our table was skipped quite often. We were only offered 1 item while the tables around us were tended to each round. Other than this, the food was fantastic as always.

    Unpleasantly surprised with the service today. It’s been typically good but this evening, one minute after we paid, the waiter tapped our table and said he needed the table soon. When hosting events they shouldn’t rush people out this way. Very disappointed

    We always love dining at Isabell's. The patio is gorgeous and cozy, with heaters and fire pits. They even have blankets for your lap should you need it on a cooler evening. The view feels like you're on vacation! A must try. We hope to see more DJ events there as it is definitely a vibe. Inside, very cool vibe as well, can be a bit loud on a busy night - but so good to have a place to go out to in Beautiful Downtown Burlington.

    Went for Mother’s Day brunch. Food was good, waitress was super friendly and attentive and beautiful location. However it took us over an hour to get our food so we were absolutely starving when it finally came. This was a frustrating as they sent out a note prior asking we respect their time and stating that we should not be late for our reservation, and we only have the table for 2 hours - but clearly they did not have respect for other people. Don’t think i will be returning.

    Took myself here for an early Mother’s Day getaway. Sat at the bar. Loved the ambiance, service was great, noise level was low. I had the oysters and focaccia to start, followed up with a steak. Ended the night with dessert and espresso martini. Everything was delicious and I can’t wait to come back.

    Lovely brunch. Very lively inside. Excellent service. Wish it was less loud though. Difficult to talk over the noise. Surfaces too hard and cafeteria like. Need something to absorb some sound like carpeting or wall paneling of some sort.

    We very much enjoyed the food - but service was very poor - over 1 hour and 20 minutes to get our food ordered for Sunday brunch and poorly trained servers. We were often left with half cup refills on small coffees and reached over us several times to get things which is not expected at this type of nicer restaurant. When food was served, lots of confusion on which was vegan potatoes and which one was potatoes with a duck fat side sauce - with one of our guest being vegan, this was embarrassing and already had waited so long for our food, hard not to be terribly annoyed by the many mishaps. It almost seemed it was opening day. We booked our reservation two weeks in advance, so not like they didn’t have the opportunity to take good care of our table of only 6. Won’t be going back.

    To be quite honest really disappointed with the service even though it was rectified. We requested specific seating for a birthday dinner and was told yes over the phone but once we got there it was not guaranteed. We had reserved for 8pm then was told to wait 10-15 mins for our seats, it took them 30mins plus. We ordered the tenderloin steak and asked for no jus (contained alcohol) they brought it out with the jus. They returned it and brought it back but this time both steaks were cold. They took it back and it took about another 20mins for it to come out. They apologized but for a birthday dinner it was still pretty sucky service. The Restaurant itself was beautiful though, that was the only PLUS.

    Excellent place for a romantic date. Service was performed in an attentive and timely manner. Food was good. The view is out of this world. I would recommend to make the reservation in the early hours as the restaurant can get busy
