Went to Isaac's for lunch. During sunny day better ask waiter for a table with a sea view to look at the bay while waiting for your order. Isaac's has good choice of sea food and we chose broiled scallops and Isaac's medley (special plate of scallops, shrimps etc). While waiting waitress served table with glasses of water and freshly...

We have been dining at this restaurant for 8 years always celebrating our annual Anniversary. The food is comparable to any Boston venue and the staff has always been atentative , polite and cheerful. The wine selection is extensive and the cocktails, especially my dry martini was suburb. The view of the inner harbor , the interior decor and lighting... More

Boyfriend and I went there last night. We got a window table which was after a snowstorm, but during the Snow Moon. The food was great! Chinese Chicken Wings, Seafood Platter for him and Hot Open Faced Turkey for me. Waiter was wonderful.

During my most recent visit I started with the clam chowder, thicker than usual but still pretty good. Then I had the Swordfish and it was the perfect cut! Issac's ambiance offers a level of class with lots of black, gold, mirrors, and great views of the ocean. I usually sit at the bar so I can't speak for service... More

I'm seriously concerned with the reviews I've read, where visitors indicated this was a great meal. When you are seated and it takes you 15 minutes to even place your cocktail order, that's an indication of how the rest of the evening is going to go. I asked for a cocktail menu and they do not have one. There is... More

Now I travel for work and I eat in a ton of restaurants. I have been here before, about a year or so ago and it was stellar. The difference I see is that was a Wednesday evening and this trip was a Saturday at 7pm. We arrived a bit early and we were seated in a too on the... More

Cloudy day and busy day. Good food, lots of it. View would have been perfect if not for clouds. Lovely water view. I'd give them a definite thumbs up!

Too bad because that is the best thing about this restaurant . The place is nice and the atmosphere and view are terrific. The food was average at best. That make this place an underachiever in my book. You would think you would be getting the freshest seafood that is well prepared. NOT the case. My broiled seafopd medley was... More
