Pizza and Pasta Palaces are easy to find. What is hard to find are restaurants serving gourmet ravioli and risotto. Isabella Restaurant on 315 Wilkes-Barre has the menu for sophisticated tastes and the decor for elegant dining. My starter was an unusual Nettles Ravioli, filled with a sweet sheep cheese and a surprise whole egg yolk on a bed of... More

We went here for lunch yesterday after seeing the commercial on TV where they claim the food is wonderful!!! TERRIBLE!!! We had the Kobe burger and fries. NO Flavor at all. You are better off going to McDonalds or Burger King. The bun was burned, and the fries were like shoe laces!!! It didn't even taste like real meat. I... More

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your lunch at Isabella. Certainly not the experience we are known for. Regarding the Kobe Burger. We do not offer a Kobe Burger at lunch. We do offer Kobe Sliders on our Happy Hour Bar Menu. We did run a commercial regarding our Happy Hour. I'm sorry for the confusion. More

This place was hands down one of the best, if not THE BEST, restaurants I've been to as far as the food. Everything from start to finish was perfect including the wine and coffee. We got the scallops appetizer the prime rib, the snapper special, and creme brûlée as well as a Sauvignon Blanc and chianti. It's a little expensive... More

I live on the NJ coast in close proximity to both NY City and Philadelphia. I have access to some of the best restaurants in the world and have become quite spoiled when it comes to good food. I recently hosted my niece's baby shower in their private room. I would start with the negatives, but there were none. Everything... More

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...
