    Food and Ambience great. The servers where a little too aggressive. I had not even my coat off when he wanted to know my order. I had just finished my meal whe he came with the dessert menu. I would prefer a little time gap. Then they came with the bill and said they needed the table back in 30 minutes. 30 minutes that loads of time, no need to create such a sense of rush.

    Exceptional service, food and atmosphere. I booked a reservation here for my birthday, and as a vegetarian I wasn’t sure what main to pick so I asked our server if he could recommend a dish (absolutely lovely man with a moustache, didn’t catch his name). He offered to ask the kitchen to make me my own pasta dish, which they did, and it did not disappoint! They also lit a candle in my dessert and sang happy birthday to me which was a nice touch. I really enjoyed my experience here and will definitely be going again.

    Service was slow ( waited 30 minutes before our order was taken) but they explained there was a delay and that they were busy, so I didn’t mind too much. Food came quickly though once it was ordered and it was really really good! Would come again but maybe at a quieter time.

    Our specific server was absolutely shocking and we relied on grabbing other servers to ask for things like water when it wasn’t their job. Couldn’t relax. Disappointing especially considering paying the guts of €100 for 2 mains and 2 drinks. Expect more. Front of house was nice.

    Did not enjoy our time here. The tables are squashed in beside each other they are way too close to each other it’s hard to get in and out from your table if you are the couch side. There was a large and noisy group in. I know that can’t be helped but it did ruin the atmosphere completely. The staff looked frustrated and stressed and it was very hard to get anyone’s attention as they were just flying around. My mother was feeling poorly earlier in the day and didn’t want anything that would upset her stomach so I ordered a pizza and she just ordered a side of chips. When we told our waiter our order he was less than impressed and with one eyebrow raised he replied ‘is that it, chips’. Maybe we interpreted it wrong but I don’t think both of us did. He then never checked on our table for the remainder of our time there but checked on the two tables to the left of us continuously.We wanted some condiments and extra napkins and was unable to get his attention for any of these requests (we weren’t there long possibly 40 minutes, and our food came out very timely which was great). When we arrived there was an employee at the arrival desk. We entered and were left there for about 2 minutes while he was on the tablet. I’m not expecting an immediate jump to attention. But a glance up from the screen and acknowledgement of hello I’ll be with you in just a second’ - is basic hospitality. We were asked to sit at the bar, which was no problem as we had arrived early. While sitting at the bar not once did a bar staff ask us if we’d like to order a drink. Bar staff were hard found to order a drink off. We ended up not getting a drink as we were brought to our table quickly enough. I was really looking forward to dining here as I have a lot of time for the press up group and have stayed in the hotels around the country within the group and have always had a great time. The Dean in Galway, Cork and also Glasson lake house. However, this place was not on par

    I dined with my sister and nieces. We very much enjoyed our cocktails; I had a gin based Lady Lavender. The pizzas were good. The desserts were less so. We had caramel sundaes and a dark chocolate hazelnut delice. They were too big and the delice was too coconuty. My glass of Rioja was excellent. Our waiter was quietly attentive. Overall, an enjoyable dining experience; the temperature felt a little on the low side.

    For a lunch time sitting, to wait for food for over 45 minutes was disappointing, especially as the restaurant seemed to be fairly quiet (post Christmas / New Year). However, we agreed that the food was so fantastic that it made up for the wait.

    I had lunch here today at 2.30 with my sister. I ordered a coke which I pored into the glass I was given. After taking one sip the glass exploded in my hand the glass was all over the table and myself while the coke pored all over my jumper and trousers. I was shocked and a little taken back. The waiter came down and laughed and said “I don’t know how that happened” I got no help as he begin to clean the table. The two parties at both side of our tables handed me tissues and asked was I ok. My sister had to ask could we move table as the table was soaked with glass and coke. We were moved table with no apology, no tissues, no assistance. We were handed our food and I had to ask for another drink which I was handed by a man in a shirt who I assume may be the manager he said this is a stronger glass with no apology or care to ask was I ok. My jumper is destroyed with stains but the atmosphere and lack of empathy was the worst part of my experience here in Isabelle’s. The manager walked by us on the way out looking beyond us with no communication on what had happened. I am disgusted with how we were treated today. Terrible customer service. No discount or apology was given which was a complete shock.

    We were there for New Years Eve Lunch and it was expectantly busy. We were seated quickly and the service was quite good and efficient. We had the avocado toast and chicken and waffle from the brunch menu. The avocado toast was pretty good, the bread wasn't really my style, but still pretty good. The chicken and waffle were a bit of surprise as we'd expected a more American or Belgian style waffle (a puffy thick one) but they were thinner like the Nordic style waffles (just no heart shapes). It was still pretty good, but the sauce was a bit overwhelming and we'd have enjoyed the dish more with it on the side or just less of it so that it didn't overshadow all the other flavours.
