We are locals but wanted a quiet place for lunch so popped in Isa's Bistro. Service was very good and food was good....not outstanding. Also pretty pricy. $15 for a sandwich with basic side option. That said it is a pretty room and would be great for serious conversation. Nice change from bustling brew pubs!

Duck breast at the recommendation of the server was excellent. Husband had chicken which was cooked perfectly. Great atmosphere and attentive service.

Super food, beautifully presented. We had our dog with us and it was cold sitting on the patio- but the manager came out and welcomed us and talked to the dog! Waitress brought our dog a bowl of water too! Inside was lovely as I took a peek-

We saw the reviews and decided to give this restaurant a try. We came with our two children, one an infant and the staff was attentive and helpful in accommodating us with high chairs and a bigger table. When we entered we were impressed with the decor of the dining room and its fresh and open feel. The large windows... More

I have eaten here a few times and it is always very good! I absolutely love the Duane's burger and the Bang Bang Cauliflower. I love how there is a variety of offerings and that the staff is helpful when I have questions. And, the valet parking is pretty convenient on a busy night out!

The restaurant atmosphere is great and the service was excellent. My mother and I got small plates, and were full off of just 3. All of the food was delicious but the Bang Bang Cauliflower was the most memorable! One complaint: We both ordered an expensive, fancy cocktail, both were very small and we could barely taste the alcohol in... More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with a great cocktail suggested by our server. Appetizer of flavored French fries covered in eggs - addicting!! Dinner of duck breast and truffle risotto - cook cooked perfectly, the way I like and the accompanying sauce was phenomenal. The chocolate truffles for dessert were the perfect little bit - not too filling but a little... More
