After reading amazing reviews, we decided to take our guests to Isa. Out guests were in the city for on evening and it was very important for us to have a perfect dining experience. We are so happy that we chose Isa. A small non impressive entrance opens up in a rather dark but romantic den area and a small bar. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly in the large back patio which has a boat like ambiance - rustic look, outdoor, covered, and heated – happening place. It was completely packed on a old week day evening. We felt good, our decision was right. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. And the FOOD – out of this world! Warm baked goat cheese with complementary fresh bread, Truffle risotto, potato crusted seabass, Juicy chicken with herbs and crispy skin and the soufflé type flour less chocolate cake. They recommend sharing of dishes, go with it because this allow you to try all of their amazing dishes. Also, dishes comes out when it gets ready. If you are not sharing, you might have to wait and admire your partner's dishes! Highly , highly recommended.
