The food and service was fabulous! We had the lumpia and calamari apps, and both were excellent. Our entrees were the mixed adobo and chop suey guisado. Both were excellent, with beautiful fresh veggies and authentic flavors. Had the halo halo and ube ice cream. Left more than satisfied and can't wait til the next time.

The food are expensive and portion of food are little.Like eggplant and eggs which is call the torta should be a side dish and should not cost that much.

Isla Pilipina is the best filipino restaurant in Chicago. We always wanted to try filipino food so we found this restaurant on Google. Our first visit was last year and since then , we never miss a week or two dining in or ordering for take out. Because of Isla Pilipina, i started to fall inlove with filipino food. The place is clean and very inviting. And the servers are very attentive. Even the owner is so friendly. You can see her talking to customers and making sure everyone is happy with the food and the service. Isla is just superb in everything. EXCELLENT FOOD , ATMOSPHERE, PRICING and SERVICE.

Isla is my favorite Filipino restaurant, that says a lot since I never had a favorite. I usually just like to have a Halo-Halo when I go to a Filipino restaurant. It's unfair to compare Isla's Halo-halo condiment-wise to Halo-halo which I discovered at a popular Filipino restaurant in the West coast which originates from Manila, but Isla does have by far the most beautiful Halo-Halo I've ever hada work of art! Isla's Halo-Halo wont disappoint when you have a craving for it in the Midwest! All the dishes I've tried were good but my all-time favorite meal at Isla is the Daing na Bangus (sun-dried boneless milkfish)again great presentation. I also recently had something I could not find on this site menu, it was some curry seafood dish which I thought was unique, which would probably be my 2nd favorite dish. Enjoy the beautiful art work by local artist on the walls. Pleasant atmosphere, service, and personnel. Shared Parking lot. Don't eat the paper inside the unique fortune-type cookie roll surprise served at the end of your meal (like my friend did)...well I guess it's not a surprise anymore :)
