Everything was lovely and the food was outstanding, the service impeccable. I only wish that I lived closer - it would be my “go to” restaurant.
Noise level was very low -.
Overall very positive
Staff friendly and efficient
Our server Becky was great! Thanks for having us
Cheerful, well-paced service
Charming, spacious room
Service was great. Staff gave great recos and checked in with us the appropriate number of times.
Sole was excellent
Very comfortable seating outdoors and nice brunch selections. Added bonus was a popover and jam that was served gratis.
Carb cake sliders would have been better with a little less onion, but the sweet potato fries were great!!!
We are never disappointed at Island.
It’s always wonderful to spend an evening in the neighborhood at Island!
Another delicious meal!
I was glad to know to make a reservation even for 6pm due to popularity!!!
The food was excellent and atmosphere delightful. Perfect place for lunch after a museum visit.
A gem. Consistently my go to that never disappoints.
An unpleasant smell of damp mop was only negative to our experience
Varied and interesting menu selections, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. The pace for dining was leisurely.
The staff was gregarious and helpful, in particular the bartender, Steve, who made us feel very welcome while waiting for our table (we were early, they were not late in seating us). Food was excellent and waitress attentive even though extremely busy. Best place in our neighborhood by a long shot!
Hostess was snippy and not gracious. She refused to seat our threesome at a banquette (despite our having indicated a preference in the reservation because one of our party has back issues), saying that the available banquette was reserved by a larger party coming in shortly. No larger party came in and she gave the banquette to another threesome. There were also two people seated at a different table with a banquette and she permitted the grandson of one of them to pull up an extra chair to join them.
Food good, though not special. The waiter brought the wrong omelet to one of our party, but told him he could start eating it until the correct replacement arrived, which was nice. Restaurant is pleasant and lunch/brunch menu is varied enough to provide a range of choices. Reliable if not exciting neighborhood place.
It was a cozy friendly happy environment. Outstanding service. Loved it!!
A fantastic meal at Island! Lovely space, attentive service, and I’m so glad we got dessert. Get dessert.
It was a solid lunch choice for post Met. I loved my tuna burger and the delish warm chocolate brownie.
Love the good and service
Wonderful and cozy for girls' lunches and friends' dinners.
Highly recommend. kk
My friend and I had a very good brunch. The frittata was very tasty, their bread is excellent and hard to resist. We come often
Delicious! Fun! Great ambiance!
Great dinner with friends. Love the Christmas decorations! Very festive and delicious food.
Really enjoyed! GREAT tuna burgers!!
Great Bloody Mary’s
Great menu, friendly staff and good ambience
This place is wonderful! My fiancé and I live around the corner and we just found our local restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was so friendly and helpful! I would recommend everyone to try it out
Cozy snd quiet atmosphere. They know how to cook fish of all types. We would definitely return.
Service is usually a 5, we had our finished (empty) first course plate on our table throughout the entire entree course. Wait staff and bus busboys walked by the empty plates that I had pushed to the side at least 20x.
Very nice, comfortable atmosphere. Well done.
Everything was perfect. We asked for a club soda that came in a short whiskey glass for full price. That was the only problem.
Service was prompt, food was very good. I would recommend for lunch
I was disappointed that they didn't check vaccination status at the door for inside dining. Other than that our visit was great, we stayed 2-1/2 hours and no one tried to get us out the door.
Thank you for your feedback. Our normal protocol would be to check for vaccination cards at the door. We do not check vaccination cards of people who come regularly since we have them as vaccinated on our records. We will make sure our hosts continue to check vaccination cards when our guests arrive. Hope to see you again soon.
High-quality yuppie fare in a pleasant room decorated with handsome prints of yachts. Outdoor seating too, of course. A neighborhood favorite, so it's full of Upper East Siders.
Go to Island on Madison Avenue. Good food. Good service. Good price
The burger m was overcooked and made me sick a few hours later. The tuna was also overcooked.
Fantastic stop for lunch prior to heading to Museum Mile. Their tomato soup is delicious. The lobster quesadilla was as well. Great afternoon/lunch time cocktails for a day off.
Loved weekday lunch with my kids at Island. Very kid-friendly with special menus and crayons. Delicious food and great service. Outdoor heat lamps kept us so warm. Will definitely be back!
Wonderful place to meet close to Mount Sinai. Fish entrees were all excellent.
Food and service were excellent.
