Final night in Long Island,Treating the family to a special meal on the last day of our holiday before going back to the UK. Great food all round, everyone very happy with the food. The only thing we found that the space between us and the next chairs was tight. Service excellent.

Had a baby shower here and could not have been any happier! The service went above and beyond our expectations. Debbie who is the event planner was so wonderful and added extra touches to things. Many of the guests reached out to us after the event and raved about the service and the food. What a wonderful time we had... More

We had heard of the Fifth Season from friends and went for a meal. The duck rolls with a black currant chili dipping sauce were perfect. The Caesar salad was crisp and fresh and very good. The pan fried chicken was a flavorful although a bit dry, it was accompanied by a warm salad of field greens with roasted tomatoes.... More

We had several meals in Port Jefferson with some great water views but we always had to contend with a certain amount of noise. We saw this restaurant while walking one day and found ourselves making a reservation. This restaurant has two floors and on the second floor is a nice intimate bar which serves the regular menu as well... More

Stopped by on "Date Night" for supper. We found the staff to be very friendly and provided excellent service. We had the Swordfish and Braised Short Ribs. Both meals were cooked to perfection. We will be stopping again when we are in the area.

Food was delicious and service was very good. It was our first time here and we didn't know their exact location, but were looking forward to a sunset dinner. Unfortunately, with Danfords directly across the street on the harbor, the building blocked any view we had of a sunset. Other than that, no complaints really. Would dine here again.

I dined at the Fifth Season recently, for the first time in a few years, and came away with a mixed experience. Though my wife and I were seated on the veranda right away, it took a while to be waited on. Though our food came out pretty quickly once we ordered, the drinks and dessert were all delayed (cocktails... More

We had excellent small plates and salads. One of our group had the salmon which she said was good. It was nice to be greeted by Jennifer, the owner/operator.

The food was great, as was the selection and variety. Love the ambiance especially in the summer. They had a great musician playing a nice eclectic set. Service was where they could use some improvement. Very linear (ask for water, get water). It was hard to catch our server to ask for anything and waited for the check a bit... 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.
