A word from Fifth Season
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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We had a excellent meal and a beautiful view of the bay while enjoying it. Victoria from Pennsylvania."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "It's a great place to go for a drink and small plates if you are in Port Jefferson. There are harbor views as it's located on Main St. The food was delicious but the dinner portions were not sized to fill you up -- just kind of take the edge off your appetite."

  • "Not often you see tile fish on the menu so i always order it. Fish was cooked just right and the service was excellent. Waited just a few minutes for out reserved table of 6."

  • "The Spring menu was good. Good quality food and tasty. The service from our waiter was a little lapse. he was full of smiles and positive energy but his attention to detail wa seriously lacking, e.g. no bread until asked. Soup arrived but no spoons and then teaspoons were offered!!! by this time the soup is getting cold!! Coffee order to completed until nudged again! This is not the Fifth Season's normal service. Certainly the waiter needs to be more refined to their usual standard. The owner was very helpful and attentive."

  • "Have been here many times; love the lobster roll on the terrace in summer, love the coziness of winter dinners. Each time we come have been pleasantly surprised by menu innovation and deliciousness!!!!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This was our third time there, and it was great as always. We appreciate the attention they give to choosing quality ingredients. You can't go wrong with the ravioli or the Parmesan truffle fries. The waiter was very accommodating of our vegetarian preferences too. I have no complaints about our experience there-- it was great!"

  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants! The food is always outstanding and the service as well. With such a beautiful view, you cannot go wrong with Fifth Season. We love the seasonal menus that keep us wanting more. I have never been disappointed and always look forward to what I know will be a great meal."

  • "Great location with excellent food and service. Great attention to detail."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Food was ok but with small portions. The half chicken was more like two small chicken legs. The veal shank on the menu was unavailable and replaced by beef but with the same upgraded $8.00 PRICE FIX increase. Overall nothing to cheer about."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "We don't dine out much, but have been here three times so far this year, because we think it is wonderful! We're impressed with the fine food, and perhaps even more by the caring service. We are older, so don't love a lot of background music or chatter while we're having a conversation. On our most recent evening there, they remembered this and found us a table in a quiet corner. Super! The place is so attractive, and I might add that the bar scene (off in a room to the side) is truly attractive, lively, and has live music. It's a treat to dine here."

  • "Once again a terrific experience. I recommend to everyone, it's always consistently excellent."

  • "We were four for brunch. The food was, as always, wonderful, the servers knowledgeable and friendly. This is our spot for 90% of npur celebrations."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "This is a place I've visited a few times and have never been disappointed. Seating by the front window provides a great view of the harbor and Port Jefferson downtown in2 directions. We had a perfect window view and were early enough to see the harbor. The appetizer we ordered, shrimp with a pineapple, cilantro, touch of mint, touch of jalapeño chutney and a touch of bacon was a true delight of flavors. One of the party had duck done perfectly, flavors of 1 side was excellent the other had a burnt component in it. The kobe beef dinner was very good and the swordfish was very nicely cooked and presented but lack any subtle flavoring, it was very good but not special. The only drawback is the relatively limited choices of entrees on the menu"

  • "Dinner at Fifth Season is always a treat. The food is delicious and the ambiance upbeat and energetic. Recommend!"

  • "Tables were tight and the noise level was uncomfortable. I hadn't been to Fifth Season in a while but the annoyance of noise brings back a similar noise problem years ago."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The salads were all pretty predictable. The fish entre was well cooked but it could have used a bit more seasoning. The roast chicken was ok. (Nothing special) the apple crisp was outstanding. The lemon cheesecake was ok. Great server. Great cocktails. We usually go to pasta pasta but wanted to try something different. We weren't disappointed but we weren't impressed either"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We successfully stretched our meal (five people) to three hours, like I wanted. Champagne waited at the table, as I had asked. My mom got her "happy birthday" wish and candle on her dessert, as I was promised. I was comfortable and relaxed here, thanks to the calm service. Nice big cocktails. Truffle fries planted a memory deep in my senses that I couldn't stop thinking about. Duck could have been pinker, but was fine. My nine year old gladly ate the crab dumplings and the burger. Filling, satisfying. The gas-burning "fireplace" was the cutest and the live piano and bass at the other side of the room was great. I was honestly surprised at how the tables filled up at this place by the time we left. Saturday night in Port Jeff in March? Wow."

  • "If you want to have a few drinks before dinner, they have a beautiful bar with elegance! I dont recommend the cheese platter appetizer! 3 liitle pieces of cheese and served with bread! Crackers would be better! I do have to say the swordfish was cooked to perfection! Delicious! My husband ordered the crab cakes which was served with some kind of lomain! Very cold! Loved the ambience but I definitely will try something else on the menu if we order appetizers! The service was also exceptional, very attentive staff!"

  • "Our server was outstanding. He is partially responsible for the great review. The food and drinks were very good albeit pricey. We had a great time and will be returning."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "We've dined at Fifth Season for many special occasions & they never disappoint. The wait staff are very accommodating...the chef accommodates for food allergies. Case in point...I ordered the fresh sea scallops not noticing on the menu that it was accompanied by lobster. I am have a food allergy to lobster. When the plate was presented in front of me...it became apparent that pieces of lobster were in the risotto. I mentioned this to my server who immediately removed the plate & came back a few minutes later with a fresh order of sea scallops with a multi grain risotto sans the lobster!"

    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's day and she absolutely loved it. The menu was fixed price, so I cannot comment on their usual selection of food, but the food we had was amazing!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Our night started when my wife and I arrived and went to the bar. We were served cocktails by the amazing duo of Beth and Colleen (best bartenders in Port Jeff) before we were sat. After cocktails and listening to the amazing guitarist in the bar (Eric McCormack), we were sat right at the time of our reservation. Every course of the meal was better than the last. We had an AMAZING cold seafood platter as an appetizer. Our entrees of Filet Mignon and Braised short ribs were unbelievable and we both got the Flourless Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake which was amazing as well. Our server, Yao was engaging, attentive and gave us service we had never experienced at any restaurant ever before. Kudos to Debroah (owner) for a wonderful staff and place"

  • "We were delightfully surprised after having our four course dinner. The highlights were the friendliness of staff and interesting interpretation of dishes. We ordered beef wellington, although they took a different approach on traditional method, it was definitely good. Portion sizes were average, but first course was only 2 bites. The restaurant offers a "local", seasonal menu- which did have some flaws (e.g. tomato soup in winter) and could have offered additional information, such as what farms the food was from. However, the duck was noted to be from Crescent farms, and was certainly delicious. Overall, I would recommend to give this restaurant a try. Oh, and if you bring along your kids, they are accommodating to kid's likings!"

  • "My husband surprised me with a dinner at Fifth Season on February 14th and it was one of the most romantic nights. All of the food was excellent with playful sensations for our mouth. Great time."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "They had a great price fixed menu for valentines days. Great value for what was offered. Food was delicious, high quality. Had a seafood platter which included lobster, shrimp, crab, and oysters. Also had a delicious ahi tuna. For dinner we got a fliet mignon and sea scallops, both incredible. Dessert was scrumptious, cheescake and apple crumb. Service was just as good. Very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I ate here on the Saturday night before Valentine's Day in an effort to celebrate early and avoid the crowds. We were seated immediately upon arrival in the upstairs dining room. I was surprised at the amount of young children in the room. The 2 yr old child at the table next to us was annoying, but we made the best of it. Our server was very accommodating, the wine was very good and the food was delicious. The one thing I would criticize is the fact that the tables for two are very small and very close together. This kills any chance of having a romantic dinner when total strangers are sitting so close to you, you feel like you are at the same table. We would return if we had a larger group of people."

  • "Overall me and my girlfriend had a great time. Right on the water so you can walk around town after dinner. Food was good and so were the drinks."

  • "My husband and I ordered the fish of the day which was fluke. It was amazing, cooked to perfection! But the desert was the show stopper, pineapple upside down cake/mango Sunday. Soooooo good!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "There's something special about Fifth Season .. we are limited on our dining budget so we have only visited this restaurant twice after being given Gift Cards (dinner & cocktails extend our budget). Although the menu is limited, it has enough to please each member of our group (we usually dine with another couple) and we have never been disappointed with our choices. The wait staff is attentive and if they seem to be busy, someone else from the staff stops by to see if everything is going well. The restaurant seems busy, yet the tables are nicely spaced and we are never rushed to complete our meal or evening out. The only thing I wish were different is that the room noise level is a little high, thinking of trying bar menu next visit."

  • "Our dinner was delicious. And it's a good thing because that is the only thing that brings me back here. I find the wait staff snotty at best. Maybe because we were all a few 10-20 minutes late for our reservation (although I had called to let the hostess know during that afternoon), we just didn't get off to a good start. She wasn't pleased that we ordered tap water and was very slow to refill our water glasses--we had to ask twice. When ordering, we weren't even picky. Although I did find it odd on a Saturday night to be out of a few things--namely the brie appetizer and there were only 2 Ahi Tuna specials left--so only 2 of the three of us at the table received that. Luckily everything arrived hot and was delicious."

  • "I have been to the Fifth Season many times and I have always had an enjoyable experience. This was my second New Year's Eve dinner at the Fifth Season and I would say that this years dinner was even better than the last. The food was delicious and the service warm, energetic, and efficient. I would definitely do this again."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We love Fifth Season and it is almost always our choice for a special night out. This time things were just "off." We were at a cramped table in a corner, food was weak and service was terrible. (A low point - perhaps short on bread plates, someone reached through my arms as I was eating my entree to clear the plate - it was almost funny.) A $100+ meal for two is a splurge for us -- and was just a pity this time."
    Dined on 12/12/2013
  • "We've been to Fifth Season four times now and they never disappoint. The "farm to table" concept puts fresh, local foods on the table and the chef's creativity puts combinations together that are surprising, unusual and always delicious. Our server was Connor and he was attentive without hovering. He was very knowledgable about the menu and made recommendations that were a hit with our out of town guests. We'll be back for sure!"
