Very nice restaurant. The atomsphere is something out of a movie. From the lighting to the way the tables are arranged. Pricey-yes, worth it- yes! Very romantic, nice place to go on a date!

I really liked eating at Island. Great ambiance when you walk in the door, friendly waitstaff. Their menu is very diverse and has lots to choose from. Their pasta is especially good - would love to go back to try out their brunch.

This is a great place to take your spouse or date for dinner. The fish dishes are superb. It is very convenient after touring a museum. We visit here oftern with our friends as this restaurant is quiet enough to have a converstaion without shouting.

Pros: Ambiance

The endearing atmosphere can't make up for the lamest brunch ever served. How can you screw up eggs? Burned coffee and runny eggs hardly warrant a $17 meal. I'd rather pay $2.50 at a bodega and get a much better meal. The service was indifferent, perhaps because they know how lame the food is. Yikes! If you want a decent brunch and can't afford both the price and the wait at Sarabeth's, Jackson Hole will feed you for $6.50 and you'll get a half-way decent meal.

Cons: everything else

Great Food, Staff and Atmosphere. I have eaten at Island many times now. I recommend for any meal. This is a very good neighborhood restaurant. The crowd is a mix- young people, families and older people.

This place is very expensive, so I thought it would be like Bistro du Nord and Pascalou--expensive but mediocre food.

Surprisingly, although we've only eaten brunch here, the food is pretty good. It's very expensive, though, and the portions are kind of small.

The service is acceptable, and the ambience is cheerful.

My brother and I have come here for years. Whenever my parents come to town, we have Sunday Brunch here. The service is impeccable, Erik the bartender is the BEST bartender in town, and the ambiance is like a little Hamptons getaway. And the Food is so Fabulous... very yummy and I think its actually healthy, but who cares! I recommend the CHOP COBB SALAD. Great Deserts. Also, its reasonably priced.

This place is a great nieghborhood joint. It can be crowded, but thats because its popular. I recommend going here to brunch if the overflow from Sarabeths (next door) is overwhelming....besides... pssst...the FOOD/service/attitude IS BETTER!!!

I think this place is one of the BEST kept secrets in NYC. Maybe not after this Review.... =) Make a Rez today.

Editorial from

This is the sort of place where hip-meets-preppy in something like a year-round version of the Hamptons summer scene. But that doesn't take anything away from the food, which may include tuna carpaccio or smoked trout salad to start.…
