I went because the TripAdviser reviews were so good. The decor has a diner theme; clearly no expense spared on table cloths or ambience. The food was also bizarre; I started with the mushroom tart: a smear of red pepper and basil/pesto oil (?) though fancy plating, did not add, complement or agree with the tart. Fingerprints on the plate... More

Excellant food and nice entertainment both on the outside patio and up at the bar. Daily special are usually great.

Excellent dinner, service was up to par. I had the salmon which was delicious and cooked perfectly. My fiance had the steak and it was perfect too. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because the parking is atrocious in Port Jeff. I highly recommend giving yourself at least 30-45min to find parking before your reservation. We... More

We had a delicious dinner looking out the window onto the colorful streets of Port Jefferson. Food, service and ambience were all wonderful.

We went with friends for their anniversary on a Sunday summer evening. We all ordered from the Prix Fixe menu, & it was delicious. The spring roll appetizer was very tasty. The salmon was beautifully done & delicious. Desserts were great, as was the beautiful "Happy Anniversary" message written in chocolate on the couple's dessert plates + candles. We shared... More

If you have reservations leave extra time to find a place to park. Located in the heart of town across from the ferry terminal, it's either street parking or a public lot. The lot requires using a fee kiosk which took several tries to pay by a dollar bill. There is outdoor porch dining but there is no guarantee for... More

Every meal at the fifth season is absolutely delicious and never a let down. The menu changes seasonal which is always nice to discover new tastes. My husband and I had our wedding and celebrated our first anniversary there. The staff is wonderful and very cater to your needs. It's beautiful to sit outside as well.

Our favorite "Special Occasion" place is in downtown Port Jefferson, NY and overlooks the Long Island Sound. It's not the location, though. It's "The Fifth Season." As the name implies, their menu changes throughout the year with seasonal choices. Dining is an adventure with interesting combinations, whether appetizer, main dish or dessert. They have a practice of writing messages for... More

Local farms and waters are the inspiration for this New American restaurant that focuses on preparing menus using ingredients that change with each season. American microbrews and wines are carefully selected to pair with each dish our chefs create. Enjoy our House-Infused Artisanal Cocktails made with seasonal purees and fresh squeezed juices while overlooking the Long Island Sound on either the outdoor patio, upstairs seating or cozy lounge. Established in 2004 in Greenport, this Zagat top-rated restaurant for both food and service moved in Spring 2008 to Port Jefferson harbor.
