Welcome to Island. We have proudly been the neighborhood favorite in Carnegie Hill since we opened our doors in 1986. We take pride to offer the freshest seafood (think Jumbo Lump Crabcakes, Lobster Roll, Maple Glazed Salmon or Ahi Tuna Poke Bowl to name a few), a great variety of fresh salads, a burger that people die for and much more. We have a bar where you can dine or simply enjoy a cocktail or a glass of of wine (our entire wine list is served by the glass). Our warm and thoughtful service is hard to find in New York and is what continues to keep our customers coming back. We hope that you will come give Island a try and become one of our new regulars!

Please note that we cannot take reservations for specific tables or specific sections though we will do our best to accommodate a request.

    Our party of five needed to move our reservation on short notice and were accommodated graciously by the staff. The service was friendly, energetic and efficient, and the food was superb. We had a wonderful Sunday evening.

    Portions were a bit small for the beginner stir fry. For an inexpensive meal to prepare, I would not have expected skimpy portions.
