We had been to Spain twice in the last few years and were excited to enjoy authentic Tapas here at home. Food was good. Croquettes were good although the potatoes should have been a bit "stiffer". The individual Paella was great as were the stuffed figs w cheese. I would suggest that the wine list have a few more $20-$30... More

Great atmosphere and yummy food. We always get 4 Tapas a meal to share and desserts. The best meal is the paella for two which has mussels sausage chicken and clams.

Isabella's is one of my favorite places to go in downtown Frederick. Specially when I have friends and family in town. It's fun to all get different tapas and share them. Everything is always so yummy!

We have eaten there often. This time was for a birthday dinner. Upon seating we were informed we couldn't bring in our birthday cake, So we left. But we will go back on other occasions, not for birthdays. Food is great.

Nice environment, good food and lovely service. Authentic-style PAELLA both flavorful and enormous ergo a definite must "share" dish. Tapas are most likened to individual appetizer-type portions so generally order a few as one will not be enough for a party of even 2. Overall good eatery in an excellent location.

Party of 5, great table by window, wonderful service. We had 15 different tapas between us, all 3 sangria flavors plus beer, coffee and dessert sampler. Everything was not only tasty, filling, fresh but so unique.Would highly recommend this restaurant! Great Market St location to walk around before and after. Beautifully decorated & charming for the holidays.

Visiting from the UK it is sometimes a bit of a challenge to accommodate my wife's gluten allergy, no worries here at Isabella's! Food was excellent and service just as good, thanks Isabella's.

Ate here celebrating friends' birthdays. Ate outside on a gorgeous Fall afternoon. All ordered the lunch tapas special. Delish. Service was great. Food was tasty. I ordered the asparagus fries, goat cheese fritters and the ceviche. Filling and fun.
