Starter option were quite poor, and price range is a tad on the expensive side, but the rest of the food was delicious!! Service was exceptional!!! Staff very friendly and not overbearing. They knew exactly when to top up the glasses or wine/water and be subtle and not interrupt. The peanut butter ice cream and brownie was divine!! I would definitely recommend! ❤❤❤

I really like Isabelle’s... good service, lovely ambience, decent food, great location. There is just one problem.... please please add more lunch/dinner dishes to the brunch menu!! Personally, I hate brunch menus past 12pm. At 2 or 3pm on a Saturday or Sunday, I want a proper lunch, not french toast, eggs or avocado. When I was there most people seemed to be having the burger or pizza. Why not throw in a couple of pasta dishes? Maybe I’m a lone voice I the wilderness about the brunch thing... but it really puts me off going to several Press Up restaurants at the weekend for lunch...

A lovely restaurant with lots of atmosphere. Staff were friendly but professional at the same time. I ordered a starter of Garlic Prawns which was outstanding followed by a Penne Verde. It was more verde than penne sadly which was a pity as flavours were fabulous & the added pasta would have been perfect, what pasta that was offered was miniscule. That really was the only fault in the dinner in my personal opinion. Otherwise a lovely restaurant & one I'd be happy to recommend.

The food was the most disappointing food I’ve had in quite some time.

Brunch in Isabelle’s was lovely. The food was very good and the interior of the restaurant is very impressive. The only negative is the fact that we were asked to vacate our table on three occasions and within a very short space of time by different people. I completely understand that restaurants need to turn tables for brunch service, however, the frustrating part was that the restaurant was not busy and we were surrounded by empty tables. We couldn’t understand why it was necessary for us to leave and the number of people and the way we were asked to leave wasn’t very customer service orientated. We felt like a problem.
