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.

    My wife and I went during restaurant week, which is usually not a great week. We found there menu had good choices with good options for al lacart choices. The food was very good, service was very good. My only complaint was the atmosphere upstairs is a little cold, but during the day time probably has a nice view of the water.

    Bread and spread on table was tasteless; calamari in merlot with kale sounded tasty but was only fair. Gnocchi was overcooked, but filet mignon was excellent and the highlight of the three courses. Server promised to have us out in time for a 7 PM show at Staller Center but brought the check over AT 7.

    I was looking for a restaurant that was in a nice area and would be romantic. Man did I hit the jack pot! Fifth season had some of the most delicious food I've ever had! The portions were more than generous, there were plenty of choice for each course. There was even a restaurant week alcohol list. I would go back in a heart beat.

    I eat here so often it's almost like a second home. but despite the familiarity, the chef always has some surprises. And this winter it's a tomato soup like no other you've tasted (mixed in are fennel, prosciutto chips and chive oil and I know not what else, but it's beautiful). Definitely worth a detour to come here.

    Truly outstanding food in a pleasant room with good service. The chef introduces creative spicing and pairing without losing those aspects which make comfort food so beloved. Two examples from our latest visit were strudel stuffed with duck confit and butternut squash, and short ribs with pastrami spicing served with mustard spaetzle. The upstairs dining room is quieter and the downstairs more lively. You will not be disappointed.

    We enjoyed an anniversary meal here on a Saturday night. The prix-fix were not available due to it being a Saturday night, however the menu was full of variety and choice. We enjoyed the local wine selections too. A relaxed and warm atmosphere with great local cuisines. Very tasty! We look forward to returning!

    After our usual enjoyment and satisfaction of being at Fifth Season over the years, my wife and I was never so dissatisfied with the food!! Thinking we were going to sit down and have just a nice birthday dinner which turned out to be so disappointing. We were so shocked to have to send my food back twice. Once it wasn't cooked enought and second time they forgot part of the order. We had to ask to fill our water glasses since they only filled them once when we sat down. The noise level was rediculous. It was so loud we couldn't a descent conversation... W e were just so dissappointed that evening!! I would like to convey this complaint to the manager...Thank you....

    I have been here a number of times. This past Friday, my family and I really enjoyed the fish. One was the striped bass special and the other was the salmon which was on the printed menu. Each of us commented separately and unsolicited on how fresh and uniquely prepared each was. Would totally recommend!!!

    Staff was slightly indifferent, food that I ordered was very average and we were there entirely too long. Not by choice.. Even while we were waiting for our table at the bar I had to practically beg for a second round of drinks. Mind you there were only a handful of people there at the time so it wasn't because the were super busy. The bartender was chatting with one of his coworkers for much of the time. I think they live on recommendations circulating from a dining experience in the past. Disappointed..

    I found Fifth Season way overrated. Its decor is very tired -- acoustical ceiling tiles, shabby dated vertical blinds that sectioned off the front room for a private party. The main dining room on the second floor doesn't have a bathroom, so you have to go downstairs to use the only one this restaurant has. The ginger cocktail I had was all sugar and syrup and practically no vodka. The duck was limp, the pancake it was served with was very unappetizing. I would not return.

    Atmosphere is awesome! My husband and I sat outside on a 70 degree evening watching the sunset... It was a perfect location. The food was great. My salmon was slightly over cooked. My husband didn't like the fact that they served fries with a NY Strip. He thought it would have been better paired with potatoes and veggies (especially for the price!!). The staff and service were wonderful!

    The food is fantastic here and the servers are very attentive. I had the pork belly and homemade gnocchi and it was absolutely fantastic. The gnocchi was exactly what you desire - melts in your mouth and not too doughy or tough. Waiter was knowledgeable about all of the dishes and was able to answer all of my questions and even made wine suggestions. This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and I am even more satisfied the second time around.

    From the description, I thought this was a restaurant on the water but it was across the street without even a water view. Food was very good and fresh. Upon arriving, the young man who first checked us in was very helpful because the parking meter system in Port Jefferson will prevent us from ever returning to the area for dinner.

    Four of us went to the Fifth Season for dinner on a Saturday night by the harbor and we loved it. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and professional. The music on the porch was top notch and we had an excellent time. Was pricey but that is Port Jefferson in the summer.. recommend reserving a table.. saw a long line of people that didn't.

    I went with a friend and my newborn baby. They were so nice to accommodate us and our stroller at a four top in the corner. The food was delicious and the server, Jen, was so nice. There was no pressure to eat fast so that we could free up the table. I had the seafood cob salad and it was so yummy. We also split the Mediterranean plate as an appetizer and it was perfect. I would absolutely return again.
