Reviews for Isa

This restaurant is special. We sat inside and enjoyed the tile floors and Tim roof which gave it a classic feel. There is outdoor dining available. The ingredients were selected with care as was the service. Available but not oppressive. We had a salad and chose the ribs and linguine dish. Bother we’re flavorful and well presented. If you have the opportunity, dinner here is quite wonderful.

The menu is short, but the flavor in the dishes offered is big. A robust by-the-glass wine list allowed us to sample and savor, too. Smoked mushrooms with arugula and manchego made my eyes roll back in delight. My Brooklyn-born boyfriend, a true snob when it comes to cheesecake, gave a big thumbs-up to the Isa Bistro version, which was laden with rhubarb and strawberries, a bit heavier on the latter to take advantage of seasonability: a theme to relish here! The entire evening, full review

I had been to Isa for lunch but never dinner. After looking at the menu, we decided to try it. The food was delicious, the service gracious and friendly, the wine list fair and interesting. My partner had a greed salad with a fantastic dressing, then halibut cooked perfectly. I had octopus and then tagliatelle bolognese. Ample portions, great presentation, and delicious. Yet another great restaurant in Portland with a young couple as owners and chef who clearly are dedicated.
