We had the pleasure of being seated where we could observe the food preparation close up, and the gorgeous ingredients made moments of eager anticipation for the arrival of each course. This is English food at its finest since the food is all locally-sourced. Delicately...More

A group of 4 who are used to dining out. Food was nice, although very small portions, but the atmosphere and service was somewhat lacking. We felt we were there to listen only to the sommelier who certainly liked his own voice, but after that...More

This review is a bit late. We visited about a year ago and have since got into TripAdvisor. Since we have been to a number of similar restaurants in Brighton but this still stands out as one of the better ones. The experience was brilliant....More

Fantastic food in a contemporary setting and great wine and juice pairing. Pricey but that wouldn't stop me returning!

High expectations for this place, yet they failed to deliver. On the positive, the food is very tasty, well presented and well sourced. Our starter of carbonated strawberry, lettuce and sheeps cheese however was tiny and felt ungenerous. The next course of lamb ragout was...More

You can fit a wheelchair in the restaurant, and you would have a lovely meal. However I don’t think the toilet would be big enough.

On both occasions that I visited I left hungry as did my husband. One course of the 6+ courses was a single carrot! I think they have taken tasting menu to a ludicrous level here. Plus we had three sweet dishes and as a... More

Afraid not. With Isaacs you need to book and pay online for the date you want. It's a small restaurant and they put so much effort in, they can't afford empty seats. Matt

We serve contemporary English fine dining food sourced locally. However, we take this to the next level by actually visiting the local producers so we can tell the stories behind the food, where it comes from and how it is grown. These visits are the base for building the menu, which is inspired by individual seasonal ingredients seen on these trips. We are now starting to grow some of our own herbs, fruits and vegetables. We also aim to break down the traditional barrier that usually exists in fine dining between the diners and the chefs. We believe that by putting the chefs in the centre of it all, preparing the food in front of diners, interacting with them and introducing dishes, a more interactive environment is created for the diners. The pace set by the chefs creates a more lively, vibrant and casual atmosphere, but with no compromise to the quality of the food. These food events at ‘Isaac At’ offer so much more than a standard restaurant experience; they are an event lasting all evening and something that will be remembered even longer.
