Quiet and clean restaurant with food which is good but not excellent. Although they do serve sandwiches and wraps,they serve a good variety including steaks,seafood and pasta. I have visited a number of times mostly for lunches with occasional dinner. The service is satisfactory but somewhat slow.

Felt the quantity and quality of the food you got was not worth the price. Not a very good selection. Ended up with hangar steak, which was tough and not very tasty. A pasta and crab dish was pretty good, but still not worth the price. May be worth another try in the future.

This is such a nice place for a great dinner. My husband surprised me with a nice dinner for a weekend away in Wilkes Barre. I like fine dining and was pleasantly impressed. The pasta was great as was the service. I would definitely go back.

We visited the restaurant for an early dinner, the decor is very nice. We tried the calamari for appetizer and NY Strip, and Filet mignon for dinner. The restaurant charges $2 extra for sharing appetizers? I don't remember going to a place where I had to pay extra to share food; the quantity of the food they serve is a... More

So I have to start off by saying this place was our third choice for dinner, the Rustic Kitchen at the casino had a 2 hour wait time we got cold feet about Oyster because of its location within a Best Western. I wish we had gone with our second choice. This was the most bland overpriced food I ever... More

Beautiful restaurant with great service and food. There were four of us and all ordered different appetizers and entrees and everything was fantastic. I had the lollipop lamb chop appetizer and Mahi Mahi and both were great. House salad comes with the entrees and they were also very good and just the right size. A little pricey but nice night...

We had a reunion of friends at Isabella and found it to be a truly exceptional restaurant with great food, great service and a fine bar. The quality of food was every bit as good as what one might find in a large city restaurant.

The dinner was prepared excellently from appetizers thru entrees. Has a bifid dining room with bar in center. Seating at bar available. Waitress helpful in recommendations. Pasta portions were large. Steaks prepared as ordered. Only drawback was an aroma of old cooking oil when you first walk through the door. Despite this, the dinner was very good.

This is by far our favorite restaurant when we stay in the Poconos. Its on the pricey side but worth every penny. The calamari is delicious (not chewy), the salad that comes with the meal is perfect and our entrées no matter what we choose is always delicious. My personal favorite is the Hawaiian Tuna with coconut rice. I also... More
