Izzy's Steaks & Chops – San Carlos
Overall, we had a very nice meal. 2nd time going to this Izzy's, and for the 2nd time the food was outstanding. Tonight was a full house. A little noisy and we had a waitress who just happened to be a little soft spoken. Several times I had to ask her to repeat herself because I couldn't hear her. We had to ask for a drink menu instead of it being presented to us and there was no salt or pepper shakers on our table even though the other tables had them. If that's all you have to complain about then I'd say we did alright. Great meal, and we'll definitely be back again.
This was only my second time eating at Izzy's. I had the chicken marsala with garlic mashed potatoes and sautéd green beans. My dinner companion had a 'mega mouthful' hamburger with sautéd onions and broccoli (swapped out for French fries). Our server, Leesa, was professional, upbeat and pleasant, and our food was great. Izzy's is a bit of a drive from Sunnyvale, but one I'm willing to make for a good meal.
Have been there often and love the place!!! Staff is friendly and ready to help in any way if you have a problem Or concern. Food has always been good.
Eric was a fantastic server. Food was served quickly, correctly and hot. Very delicious!
Went with my teen boy. Kinda pricey for the way he eats. Seat was ripped in the booth we sat in. Waitress was very nice.
Thanks so much for coming in to join us! We look forward to having you guys again!
Excellent everything from warm welcome when we walked in, service and attentive staff, and amazing dinner. Will be back! Thank you for making this evening so special.
Thanks so much for coming in Stacey! We are so pleased you enjoyed your evening here. See you again soon!
We have been to Izzy’s in San Carlos multiple times since it has easier access then The SF location. Food remains consistent although honestly I never venture away from the Izzy’s own potatoes and creamed spinach. This time we came on NYE-8pm reservation. When our waiter came to the table -he appeared almost irritated when no one ordered alcohol. It was so obvious that my table mate felt the need to apologize! Support staff was fabulous and attentive.
Hi Anonymous! Thanks so much for the positive feedback! We are pleased you enjoyed the food but I apologize you and your guests were made to feel uncomfortable for not ordering drinks. That is not how I want my guests to feel. Thanks for letting me know.
Just lovely overall, as always!
Thanks so much! We are pleased you enjoyed everything!!
Food and service was very good. Considering it was New Years Eve, service was very good, and the steaks cooked to perfection
Thanks so much wabash21 for the positive feedback! We look forward to having you back again very soon.
It was busy and a little noisy , but it was New Years Eve.
Thanks so much JimB for joining us on New Years Eve! We are pleased you enjoyed yourself!
Lisa, the bartender, was terrific. Made good cocktails & remembered us. Hard working, efficient. You are lucky to have her.
Joy, our waitperson was so nice. Too bad the prime rib entrees we had were tough, but, she replaced them with a better piece that we took home. The scalloped potatoes side dish was very good.
The cheesecake was very good...we ate it the next day, as we were full.
We would recommend Izzy's because everyone in the restaurant was having a good time and the employees were wonderful starting with Monique at the front desk, along with Lisa & Joy.
We are so pleased you came in and we appreciate your positive feedback.
The food wasn’t that great. I had the piccata chicken and the sauce was sour
Hi there! Thanks for coming in and I appreciate the helpful feedback.
Definitely will come back for dinner with family....Foods are delicious and my husband and i enjoyed our quiet time.
Thanks so much for coming in GraceM. We are pleased you enjoyed your time here at Izzy's and we look forward to having you back again very soon.
The worst steaks we have ever had. Asked for medium rare and it arrived well done. My husband ordered the bone in rib eye for 60 something and it was grisly. Even the beloved creamed spinach was a miss. We waited about 30 minutes to be seated even with reservations. It was Christmas Eve so service was rushed and rude. We spent $400 with no drinks for 4 people. I am sad to say the quality of Izzy’s has gone down hill. I am not sure we will be back.
Hi DawnS. Would you mind giving me (Jenny) a call at 650 654 2822. I would really like to make this up to you.
Izzys is our special place to celebrate many occasions. The food is delicious, service remarkable and total experience worth the price. Jenny is an amazing manager taking wonderful care of customers and staff.
Thanks so much for joining us! We appreciate you coming in and we look forward to having you again soon!
Disappointing. Usually a much better experience on Christmas Eve. They have been our go-to restaurant for this occasion in the past. Might have to re-evaluate, going forward!!!
Hi SDvisitor! Thanks so much for coming in. I would love to talk to you in person. Would you please give me (Jenny) a call at 650 654 2822 when you have a chance?
Never received our dinner ordered food came out wrong steaks went back waiter forgot about us never received our dinner left without eating
Hi Sunshine. Would you please give me (Jenny) a call at 650 654 2822? I would love to talk to you about your dining experience.
We are regulars here and today was not so good. Service was a bit slow, I had to wait a long time to request water and cocktails for the table. I had to request multiple drink refills as there was no one around automatically refilling empty glasses. Skirt steak is normally cooked perfect, but today 5 people at the table all had the same problem, way over cooked. Meals took a really long time to get. Even after ordering dessert, it took 30 minutes to get it delivered.
I was disappointed with the service tonight.
I am so sorry to hear that the service was not top notch as it should have been. I do appreciate you letting me know. Would you mind giving me (Jenny) a call at 650 654 2822. I would really like to make this up to you.
The service was outstanding the food was delicious the drinks were great overall had a fantastic time really nice steakhouse definitely will be back
Thanks so much JayW! We are pleased you enjoyed everything and we will see you again very soon!
Last night we had a birthday celebration. We've always celebrated birthday dinners at Izzy's. Our waitress Lisa was exceptional and the food was perfect! I've been going to Izzy's since it opened many years back. Sometimes, it was a hit or a miss, but last night, everything was a *! I highly recommend!
Hi DKaihani! We are so pleased you enjoyed everything and I will definitely let your server Lisa know that you think she is great! Thanks so much for the positive feedback and thanks for coming in! We look forward to having you back very soon!
Really disappointed in the service for the price. It took 45 minutes for our food - a salad and pasta - and we didn't have utensils or napkins. When we asked for utensils we were given one set, and we could not get our waiter's attention. We'll never go back.
Hi SarahV, I would really love to make this up to you. Would you please call me (Jenny) at 650 654 2822? I look forward to hearing from you soon.
We love Izzy’s and will continue to go, but this time around was a little off. I’m sure it was partially because we were at peak dinner with a larger group that didn’t all get there at the same time, but the service wasn’t quite up to par, and several other little things just didn’t make it the good experience that we usually have. My steak was overcooked (ordered medium rare, came out medium-well) but it felt way too busy to send it back without ruining the rest of the meal (i guess that’s on me), so I just ate it but was disappointed.
Our server was very good! So attentive, accommodating, not too pushy. Our food was delicious and everything was great!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your dining experience! Thanks so much for coming in! See you soon!
Worst dining experience ever. Caesar Salad - horrible. Baked potato - luke warm. Skirt steak - not good. Creamed Spinach - not good. Service - mediocre. Not worth the price. I have been eating here for years and each time I give it another chance, the food is worse and I end up regretting it. I'm pretty sure we will not be dining here again.
Kath, I am very disappointed that you had such a bad experience and I definitely would like to speak with you about this in more detail. Would you mind giving me (Jenny) a call at 650 654 2822. I would really like to make this up to you. I hope to hear from you soon.
Food great, cold service. Not too attentive, took to long to attend to us, lots of waiting, no smiles, not very friendly or jovial. Perfect situation of great food, but dining experience minus stars for her non-stellar service. We tipped her more than she deserved. Which made us feel bad because we are giving what is expected, not earned.
Hi eater! Would you mind giving me (Jenny) a call at 650 654 2822. I want to make this up to you. We pride ourselves here for giving amazing service and I am disappointed you did not receive the service you deserve. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Always consistent. Friendly nice service, good classic environment, and cozy dinner.
Excellent food. The service is efficient and very friendly.
Thanks so much for the positive feedback! See you again soon!
Ordered the same thing, medium rare filet mignon,
Great service and great food

I have yet to be disappointed with Izzy's. As with any restaurant, sometimes are better than others.

Won't be coming back. Food was just soso. I've had better prime rib elsewhere.
Hi SMFoodie! I am so sorry your dining experience was just so-so. Would you mind calling me (Jenny) at 650 654 2822 so we can talk about your visit in more detail. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Our meal was great service was not very attentive .
Hi Cindy, I am pleased you enjoyed the food but I am disappointed to hear that the service wasn't as good as it should have been. I appreciate you coming in!
Service was excellent from our server. We were there very early. When it got more busy and we were finishing up, others were helping out it seems and clearing our plates mid-bite. I thought that was bit rude and impersonal. They were just grabbing things so quickly like trying to clear the table for other people and we weren’t even done yet. Food was good but not so incredible I would rave about it. It was a nice birthday dinner for my Mom and she enjoyed it so that’s what matters most!
I am so happy your Mom enjoyed her birthday dinner. I am so sorry that the server assistants came to clear your plates to early. I would like to invite you back so we can make things up to you. You are welcome to call me at 650 654 2822 to discuss things person to person.
we asked for a table in a quiet area - for the first course, we got that but then a table of like 20 people were put next to us. that's not exactly giving us a quiet table, esp. since there were obnoxious kids at the table. The food was fabulous and the waitress was wonderful .
Hi meee! We are pleased that you enjoyed the food and service at Izzy's. I apologize that it was not as quiet as you would have hoped! We do look forward to having you again soon (and we will make sure to do everything we can to accommodate a quieter area!)
Mike is the reason we came back for the second night in a row!
BTW...the lamb chops are as good as the pepper filets! Great food!
Thanks so much gabruce! I think Mike is awesome too! I will share this review with him! We appreciate you coming in and we will see you next time!
Outstanding neighborhood gem!
Thanks so much gabruce! We look forward to having you again soon!
Nice restaurant, good food and friendly staff. The service was very good and our food was delicious.
