Nice menu choices. Food was very good. Service a little slow, but believe that was because they were busy and only had two servers working. Would definitely go again.
I have been to Island many times and I am sure it is because of Covid but the food was mediocre at best. My curry chicken salad sandwich could not have been more bland and it had more apple then chicken. Meh!
Excellent food, gracious service, and a pleasant ambience. The maple-glazed salmon with brussels sprouts is terrific. And it would be very hard to say no to that brownie with vanilla gelato!
Excellent service. Staff did everything to make outdoor dining experience as comfortable as possible
Ambiance was nice enough, and servers were nice, albeit slow. Food itself was horrendous and way over priced for what was served. We will not be going back.
This is a neighborhood bright spot. Great ambiance inside and out.
Great food with pleasant outdoor atmosphere. Delicious food. Great service.
Chef, Abad always prepares to your specifications, plus his exquisite handling! I miss Adrianna, for special waitstaff understanding...She'll be back soon.
They're all great and I'm pleased to join them again, after a bit of a Pandemic sabbatical.
Jake was a most efficient and attentive waitstaff. Was nice to see the GREAT Kitchen staff again. Thank you!!! Arthur GI
I was disappointed, during the past few months I've dined Island and have had very good meals. Brunch this time was unfortunately not good. Burger was overdone, bun hard, fries were ok. Service was exceptionally slow.
They are doing such an amazing job with the pandemic. Lovely outdoor eating setting with comfortable chairs and heat lamps - feels Parisian. Service is very good. And food is amazing as usual. So grateful to have this lovely spot in our neighborhood
Wonderful brunch, great staff! Perfect way to spent a lovely afternoon!
Great date night! The meal was delicious. The service was excellent. The outdoor seating arrangement was best it can be. We felt very respected and safe with COVID-19 protocols and other diners were very considerate of the staff with mask wearing as well. This was a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience.
It is wonderful to be back at this neighborhood classic! The attentive and friendly staff made dining outside as friendly as it used to be inside. Special attention was given to my elderly mother, and we were accommodated at a table that was suitable for her. The food was as delicious as ever! Highly recommend!
Nice cozy restaurant, ate indoors for brunch/lunch. Food was well prepared and tasty, the staff was friendly and accommodating. Nice nautical themed decor.
Wonderful service. A lovely young blond woman who could not have been nicer
Food is very good - my salmon entree was very moist and flavorful. The outdoor sidewalk ambience is very nice and the service is good but a bit slow.
Eating outdoors the service was uneven (sometimes there was a long wait to get a waiter's attention). The food selection is very good!
I love Island and go there often as I live a couple of blocks away. The waitstaff is always so friendly and attentive and the food is very good. However, the service is sometimes a bit slow which doesn’t really bother me in general. The prices are a bit high but the food is great and good quality.
We had a great time at Island for Sunday brunch with friends. The sidewalk dining was nice. It was quiet and the block is gorgeous. Food and service were wonderful. Will definitely be back.
Islands is always dependable. Good food and good service. Nice cheery atmosphere.
Food and service always great at this locals fave.
I enjoyed the food.
Service was horrible. Never had a proper waiter. Hostess was confused. Food took forever. We’ve been eating here for years and many tables around us were frustrated
excellent food in a pleasant outdoor setting, with very nice service
Great neighborhood place.
Variety of food to suit any palate.
Good price point.
Very pleased. Tables well-spaced. Food excellent. Attentive service.
Delicious flavors, special outdoor ambience. Feels like you’re in Europe.
The staff were warm and friendly. Very attentive. The cobb salad was delicious and the shrimp cocktail was excellent
Granted, it was all outdoors, so I know that's a logistical challenge. The food was good, but the service and food arrival were very slow. Definitely need more waitstaff and dedicate waiters to specific tables.
The food was below average. We ordered the hummus as appetizer it was bland . My husband ordered the lobster quesadillas and for the price we were expecting something more tasty . I ordered the red snapper that came with guacamole on top and a side of vegetables, I was expecting better food based on the good reviews. For the price the food was below average. The service was good though, but because of the food and the prices I give this place 2 stars.
Still love island after so many years. They manage beautifully despite construction next door—so pleasant!
Servers were friendly and attentive. Beautiful atmosphere, safe social distancing, amazingn food.
Only drawback compared to Island’s usual good quality and ambience is the passing bus noise because of the temporary tables on the sidewalk. When indoor dining returns, all will be good again.
For 2 people paid 220ish plus tips for almost 10 drinks, shared app, two main courses, and shared desert. I don'r go to the city much so i splurged and i feel like it was a good deal and food was excellent. We accidentally spilled a glass of wine and they replaced for free. Its the time of COVID so it was outdoor dining and for the city very quiet with so much less traffic. Plenty of room to spread out and we had a nice time.
The appetizers were dreadful. Soggy warm Caesar salad, gazpacho like tomato juice with a few chunks of fruit and vegetables. The island margarita was second rate, stick with a regular margarita. Main dishes and dessert were okay. Service passable, not great. Maybe it was an off night.
Enjoyed the new outdoor dining situation, though sitting right on Madison Ave is a bit noisy from the buses.
Restaurant needs to put more outdoor umbrellas for tables. Tables are unstable due to sidewalk cracks. More thought needed on use of space.
Considering Covid regulations...it was outstanding. The food and staff couldn't of been better.
