We went for brunch and I got the $13 frittata. It didn't come with anything else. Everything on the menu was severely overpriced. My husband got a pulled pork sandwich that was the size of a slider. And again came with nothing and was at least $14. There are too many places in the hood that are better and priced more reasonably

So so good! Came with my brother for brunch - had the baked eggs and polenta and breakfast pizza. Dont bother w the pancetta - def not worth the $6. When we asked the waitress if that was their 'bacon,' she didnt bother to tell us they had it, it just wasnt on the menu. BUT other than that SUPER NOMS! And that guy Jio (Gio?) is awesome. On his game and made us feel like regulars. Get more servers like him! We will definitely be back.

Small pretentious portions. Nice room, and good service. However, as I said before the portions are ridiculously small and there is very little choice on the menu. Suggestion... Add some more choices to your menu, and add some more food to the plates.

We decided to go to New York for 3 days, we had a list of places to eat. We visited 3 to 4 establishments per day. On our last day we had Restaurant Isa as our second stop. The food was very good, you can feel the chef's passion in the dishes. Small portions but perfectly balanced. Unfortunately it takes two to tango and the service was not up to Brooklyn or New York standards. We sat at the counter/bar and our server/barman never made us feel welcomed. During the 2 hours we were there, never once did he smile, he never looked at us and never once did he do his job and make us enjoy our evening. So I have to say poor chef, your food was very good too bad the bar man screwed it up.

Finally got to ISA for an early evening Sunday dinner and the jury is out. I was not incredibly hungry, therefore the smallish portions were okay. The dishes are well constructed and provide an amazing spark to the senses. The service was professional and knowledgable. The atmosphere was ideal for a cold and rainy evening, but might be too heavy in August. The place is somewhat contradictory because the feel doesn't match the menu. My wife had the strip. It was perfectly prepared, yet three slices of steak, with some foam and radish slices was overpriced at $32. Had I been hungry I may have been disappointed.

Some friends were raving about this place (best in Bburg...), while others complained about the small portions and high prices. Ultimately i have to agree with the admirers - quality over quantity, which alas many times comes at a higher price... What you're getting though is smart, and very well executed food, served by a first rate staff. The flavors are very clean and subtle, and show a great variety, which compensates for the limited menu. The deserts are outstanding.

It has been a very much anticipated visit, but a table of four left very upset and disappointed. Even if some dishes were great, the little choices given , the small portion ,the mismanagement made the overall experience a total disaster.
