Amazing selection of tapas with a staff who is willing to recommend and guide you through the extensive menu. Additionally, if you
go on a Wednesday, select bottles of wine are deeply discounted to between $14-23, almost half off. Food, service, and ambiance were
excellent and we will be returning soon.

The lunch was excellent and cheap, $10.99 for any 3 tapas. Sizzling scallops (menu says shrimp but you can substitute) was crazy
good, a must! Rivals Jaleo's in DC. Paella was very tasty w/ lots of shrimp. Baked Brie was fantastic w/ just a little honey for
sweetness - good as dessert too. So much food I had to take some paella home. Best lunch deal in town!

Had a group of six for my husband's birthday, the table was great, food wonderful as always and our server Jenny was awesome,
very attentive and that is sometimes hard to do since the place was packed! He even received a special dessert for his birthday!

We sought out Isabella's based on online reviews and a recommendation from friends who lived in Frederick. I called to see if we
could come earlier than our reservation time and the staff was very accommodating. The atmosphere on Friday night was boisterous
and loud but not offensive, and our table was in a slightly quieter room. Our waiter made good food suggestions and brought our
wine quickly. The fried asparagus stalks with a roasted tomato aioli were delicious. We ordered another four tapas plates and a
chocolate torte dessert, all delicious. We liked it so much that we came back for breakfast the next morning and that was good,
too, and a much quieter atmosphere. Great place! We'll be back next time we're in Frederick.
