We went to Isabella’s for a late lunch. They have a great special on Tapas. We shared tapas as paella. The Tapas were very different, interesting, tasty, and presented well. Everything was delicious and the service was great.

We went here on a weekend during mid-day and there were throngs of people having brunch. We don't do brunch, and were thankful that they offered a regular tapas meal alongside the brunch menu. We probably would have dined elsewhere if our only options were...More
