About La Isla Restaurant


After nearly 20 years of local cult status and high critical acclaim at a tiny location in downtown Hoboken, La Isla expanded into a brand new 100 seat space near the city’s uptown waterfront at the Maxwell Project in 2015.

With acclaimed Chef Owner Omar Giner at the helm in a state-of- the-art facility, La Isla Uptown aims to capture the character and charm of the original with the same sense of authenticity and high value in a setting that would be at home in South Beach.

The new restaurant also features a premium only full bar with over forty wines by the glass, a large selection of fine rums, original tropical cocktails and a dynamic offering of craft beers and spirits.
