"Our server Amir was amazing, the other servers were equally attentive and they all shared responsibilities. They refilled our bread basket 3x and instantly each time (I love bread lol). So glad I discovered this thanks to SF Restaurant Week. Will definitely go back and would love to try it in the day or for Happy Hour to see what it's like : )"

"I have walked by Isa many times, adding it to my "future dining spots" list. When I saw that they were offering a four course dinner for SF Dining Week, and saw their menu, I HAD to try it. The butter lettuce salad, yellow fin tuna appetizer, scallop entree and creme brulee were excellent and presented nicely. I am a single diner and I felt very comfortable and welcome here. The staff is very friendly. Next time, I will ask to be seated in the garden in the back as I will be back."

"My girlfriend and I came in for the Dine San Francisco Restaurant Week deal. It was a 4-course dinner for $40, which was such an amazing deal. We really liked how the restaurant served dishes family style, so we actually got to try 8 different dishes. Everything was delicious and came out right away. The service was great and would definitely be back in ever in town."

"A friend and I celebrated our January birthdays with 4-course prix fixe dinner (French cuisine). We had an early reservation so enjoyed happy hour $5 cocktails. Food was fabulous, large portions, and friendly, attentive service. Started with salads; 2nd course we shared of mussels & salmon carpaccio; entrees of lamb and duck were exceptional. Finished with creme brulee. A perfect evening!"

"This has to be the best SF Restaurant Week dinner offering. 4 wonderful courses with multiple choices within each course.
Not only was the food delicious , the servings were ample.

"First off, the duck and the lamb tenderloin dishes were AMAZING. The mussels and the grapefruit granite were great runner ups.
However, there were a few things that annoyed me with:
1 - I'm a foodie and I know to show up on time, finish dinner with 1.5-2 hrs and be on our way. I got an email from ISA providing me guidlines about the prefix menu, to show up on time, and that if I wanted to dine leisurly, to make another reservation. Okay, good info for people unfamiliar with such events, but a little annoying at the same time.
2 - We sit promptly at our table for 5:30pm dinner reservation, its HH, someone takes our drink order. Great. Waiter comes by like 5-10 min later and we order. Note we also get the $25 foie gras add on, which we later find out, was not worth $25.
3 - here's the low down on timing:
5:30pm - we sat at our table..and consumed 2 baskets of bread while waiting...
6:07pm - finally, our salad comes out - tasty
6:16pm - potato leek soup arrives - boring and watery
6:19pm - salmon carpacio comes out, not salted properly
6:47pm - mussesl finally arrive after a long...long...break in service, good
6:53pm - foie gras comes out, not too impressed for the price we paid
7:05pm - duck arrives and is amazing and the plate is cleared!
7:07pm - lamb tenderloin arrives and rivals the duck, every morsel is consumed, delicious!
7:32pm - grapefruit granite arrives and my husband loves it, as well as my gelato, which was fine (nothing to be wowed about)
Finally we get the check, in which our HH drinks were charged incorrectly at full price; waited for the updated check (they took off the cost of drinks but we added it back into the tip) and prob left Isa close to 8pm. The kitchen was backed up the entire night. Sorry, but I'm not sure I'll be back any time soon."
