    First trip to Frederick. Wanted to eat somewhere local, and was recommended Isabella’s by a friend. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. Great tapas options. I really wanted to try the paella, but didn’t have the time to wait for its preparation (menu states up to 25 mins). The food came out quickly and the server let us know that it would come out as it was ready, which was more than OK. I recommend the short rib and fried asparagus

    Isabella's capped off a great afternoon in downtown Frederick. Started at a local brewery on the Creek, walked down to Market Street for some shopping and stopped at Isabella's for lunch. One of my favorite spots for a meal downtown 😋 😍 👌. We picked 3 tapas to split and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. That and an Oktoberfest craft beer made for a great lunch stop. There was a table or two out front but we sat inside at a booth and had great table service.

    What wonderful place for a girls lunch! Especially when we both love cheese so much. Lol We started with the fried goat cheese. I actually appreciated that this goat cheese wasn’t quite as pungent as most. It was on the mild side. And the Panko exterior was extra crunchy. Next, the waiter brought out a complimentary dish from the kitchen! Panko fried asparagus. It’s served in a champagne glass filled with tomato aioli at the bottom. I love asparagus so much just in its own, that I would never have thought of ordering this. But I have to say that it totally changed my mind. Again, the Panko was extra crispy, which was a perfect balance to the soft vegetable inside. And the tomato aioli was so completely delicious!! I would definitely order this again!! Next, our fried manchego arrived. It had the same Panko crust and a dallop of jam on top. This sat on top of a slice of baguette and slice of green apple. The salty manchego was very yummy with the sweet jam! Then came our dates - they are stuffed with chorizo, wrapped in bacon, drizzled with balsamic and sitting in a creamy bed of goat cheese. Oh my lord they are so yummy!! Bacon wrapped dates are always a go-to for me and this place certainly didn’t disappoint. Lastly, we ordered the short rib. This was probably the largest serving size. It consists of four, slider-sized sandwiches absolutely stuffed with meat and served on perfectly toasted brioche. The meat is also topped with sweet sautéed purple onion and goat cheese. Honestly, I didn’t taste much goat cheese. But the bread was magical and the meat was juicy and sweetened perfectly with the onion. I loved this place so much that I can’t wait to return sometime with my hubby!

    Ordered the new York strip with broccoli. The steak tasted like water. Had false sear marks and seemed precooked. A buffets cheap steak had more flavor. And the broccoli was not cooked... My wife had the breakfast wrap. It was good, but lacking almost any kind of flavor. The coffee taste like a cheap Maxwell's coffee. The waitress was a sweet heart though. I do not recommend this place to eat.

    Wonderful restaurant featuring authentic Spanish tapas and paella. They also offer Sunday brunch until 3pm. We opted for tapas and a late lunch over the brunch. Seated immediately and the food started coming out fast. Everything was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend the papas bravas, fried asparagus, albondigas (meatballs) and empanadas.
