Isabel's Cantina

At Isabel's Cantina, Chef Isabel Cruz fuses Latin and Asian cuisine

into sensual and creative concoctions that are both remarkably addictive and surprisingly healthy. By incorporating ingredients from spicy pork carnitas to tofu, Chef Cruz creates a vegetarian's haven as well as a meat-lover's paradise. The exotic dining space is at once dramatic and hip, with accents such as an enormous 15-foot Buddha statue staring down at the dining room. Casual booths, stark lines, and warm colors create an atmosphere not found elsewhere in Pacific Beach, attracting crowds for brunch, lunch, and dinner.

"Service and food a little uneven tonight. My entree needed heating, and then was very good, and others in our party happy with their choices. We were overcharged on bill and that was taken care of. Pleasant server, maybe new, or just an off night. Will be back for breakfast."

"The ambience of Isabel's Cantina is unique, yet somehow feels unfinished. Service was good, but once we ordered water to drink our server definitely "flattened" his service. Food descriptions sounded better than they were in reality. Mango salsa on salmon tacos - a favorite combination - was one of the "specials" but left much to be desired. Salsa had no flavor (unripe mangoes) and salmon was dry, overcooked and unseasoned. The regular menu fish tacos were much better, due to the avocado sauce which was quite good. Chocolate cake is good. Coconut flan had only the barest hint of coconut, so that was disappointing. Overall it was ok, but not great."

"I think the food was average...had the Brazil bowl and it was just ok, like an expensive Chipotle bowl with less flavor. I also am against dogs being at the tables indoor at a restaurant. Outside fine, inside is not ok. Please consider your non dog owner clientele."

"We had a horrible experience here. We arrived with 10 people (had an OpenTable reservation obviously), 4 kids and 6 adults. We ordered drinks, and everything was going fine at first. After a while, the waitress took the kids orders, and about 20-30 minutes later, she finally took our order (we had to ask her). the kids' food finally arrived about 45 minutes after they had ordered, but with no silverware or napkins. the wait staff that was around seemed to be avoiding our eyes, so we finally got up and got some spoons from the bar so the kids could eat. We waited I think an hour from when we finally ordered till we got our food. Once again , we had no silverware. My husband asked for silverware, and the waitress brought him a fork and knife but no napkin. By this time we were all starving and annoyed. Many people who had come after us had already eaten and gone, so I'm not sure if we were the only ones who had such a bad experience, although we did hear someone snap at their waitperson "can we PLEASE get our check??". All in all we waited TWO HOURS from the time we arrived to the time we got our food. I finally had to leave because my daughter was melting down and our food still hadn't arrived. My husband and I took turns eating and going out to the car with her. It was extremely frustrating, and I would NEVER go back. I don't even know if the food was good because it was cold by the time I got to eat, and I was so hungry and in a hurry because of our daughter, that I just shoved it down."

"Excellent! Will be back very soon. Food was delicious and drinks were spectacular. I went with a staff pick for both drink and food and left so full, happy, and wanting to come back for more! Plus they are dog friendly!"

"We used to eat here more and really forget to go in, my wife was craving a bowl and ended up having the salmon and I had the seabass, both were great. Our waitress was excellent, just enough service and lots of smiles"
