  • Not What I Expected

    I read the good review in the NYT and other places and I expected a fine dining experience and service. The waiter was arrogant and didn't really listen. The food was good but not great and the decor was way over the top. I'm not sure that I would return.

  • A very beautiful restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 11/15/2014
    Dining at The Graceful Rose was a pleasant experience. The restaurant is in a good location with beautiful views of the harbor. The dining room is very pretty. We went on a Saturday night at prime time. Our table was ready on time and the staff was courteous. As the evening went on I felt the wait staff was a little stressed, it was a full house. The support staff stepped up and helped to make sure you could get what you needed without a long wait. The food was good, and portions were more than adequate. I would not rate this as a great place for food, but overall, it is a nice place to go on a Saturday night. Prices are average for a place of this caliber. If you want a nice dinner in a beautiful dining room, with a great view, and your not counting your pennies, I recommend this restaurant.

    This is the first time I have been to this restaurant. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the food. I had scallops in a creamy lobster sauce with bits of lobster. My first bite I said to my friend, omg, this is delicious. She ordered the same and we both totally enjoyed our meal. The only downside, This restaurant is not for handicapped people. You have to climb stairs and there is no elevator. We had a window overlooking Long Island Sound. We saw the ferry come in and go out. I'm sure in the summer the view is outstanding. I will definitely go back.

    Very beautiful place. Great food and drinks, great atmosphere and great service. Will be dining here again. Only downfall was that it was very loud and too noisy. Not good for a quiet romantic evening with the boyfriend. I went for a nice girls night dinner and drinks and it was still just too loud. (And I'm young. I don't mind being at a loud place). I'm sure it's not always like that. Like I said I will be returning.

    Right in my own backyard sits this lovely restaurant with wonderful views of the Long Island Sound. The service, food and atmosphere were excellent. The a la carte menu is a bit on the expensive side but a new price fixe menu was just instituted. Absolutely worth a visit!

    To enter the restaurant one must climb a full flight of stairs. There is no elevator. Management said it's the Town or Village zoning that is preventing them from installing one. That's ridiculous and unacceptable. It makes this fine restaurant off limits to many diners, which is really a shame.

    Beautiful interior, spacious seating, and large windows overlooking the LI Sound, make it a great setting for an enjoyable dinner. The menu wasn't incredibly exciting, but my date & I both had delicious steaks, cooked perfectly, and the service was very good. The valet parking came in very handy in Pt. Jeff, where space is quite limited- especially on a Saturday night. I definitely plan to go back.

    As soon as we gave our name we were wished a Happy Anniversary and throughout the evening every staff member made a point to come to our table and wish us the same. The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. At the end of the meal I was given a bouquet of three roses (one for each decade). My husband and I felt so special and the entire experience made our celebration magical.

    The ambiance was lovely, an open space and big windows over-looking Port Jefferson, but with an intimate feel nonetheless. The service, from the manager and our very attentive/friendly waiter could not have been better. The food was outstanding. The menu had a variety of selections to please almost any palate, and gluten-free options are clearly noted (important for me). My one criticism is the gluten-free options on the prix fixe menu were very limited (one app, one entree), and both required an up-charge. It is also a tad pricey in general, so a bit expensive to be a regular dining spot. But for a special occasion, we will definitely be back.

    We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The main room is lovely with high ceilings and large windows. The service is friendly and very attentive. The waiter went out of his way to find the Campari for the drink I ordered. The food was excellent. My husband declared his "The best swordfish he ever had". The only reason for one less star is that we found the dessert menu limited. Three chocolate choices, two with peanut butter, berries, or cheesecake. Nothing that made us say, "we must try that". The service was capped off with roses for me from the waiter! He had asked if it was a special occasion!

    What a nice find!!! Cozy romantic atmosphere. Food was delicious with beautiful presentation. Service was excellent. We didn't feel rushed. It was so nice to revisit this location. This site used to be called Port O'Wind many years ago. We held our daughter's christening party here 28 years ago!!! Jerry DiCecco was the chef. We are so happy that it has been finally turned back into a great quality restaurant that we will certainly revisit and recommend.

    Unimpressed - Had the surf & turf; crab appetizer. Lobster was bland.Steak was very good, but not medium rare as ordered. The crab was ok; my husband thought it was canned. The atmosphere was loud I could not hear across the table. Everyone was shouting above the music. It was a fancy bar scene. For $250 for a meal I was not impressed. No I won't return nor will I recommend. I expect more for the $$$.

    We took friends here for their anniversary, neither of us had been to this restaurant previously. It was one of the best evenings we've had in a long time! Food was excellent (I was craving steak, but the scallops sounded good too. Upon waiter's recommendation, i chose the scallops which were amazing.) Service was very attentive and friendly and the view is great. Only wish we could have sat by the windows. Will definitely return soon.

    Our dinner was superb. The ambiance is elegant, but a bit noisy. Some area rugs might help. The food was outstanding and innovative. The wait staff was excellent, there when you wanted, entertaining, and humorous. Nice features included ordering a glass of champagne and getting a split! Ordering glass of wine p, given a taste first and then getting a small carafe to pour as one liked. The overall experience was so good that we highly recommend it.

    We had a great time at Graceful Rose. The food and service were excellent. We dined outdoors and it was very nice. The only downside was the walk to the powder room required us to walk around the entire building and upstairs. We hear they are working on an easier route. If I were them I'd make it priority #1. The food and service made it worth the hassle but it could be a detractor for many.

    Met our Connecticut friends here for dinner. All agreed, it was a wonderful experience. Beautifully done. I had salmon, delicious A few people had a linguine with seafood and another had seared tuna. Not a good place for someone who is handicapped, as there is a flight of stairs, and no elevator. We stayed until we saw the ferry coming into dock and then took our friends back for their return trip

    After reading other reviews my husband and I were skeptical but wanted to try it for ourselves. We are so glad we did! The ambiance everyone agrees was great..so pretty inside. The service was wonderful. .I even received a bouquet of roses! I ordered a filet mignon that was cooked to perfection and so tender! My husband had scallops and lobster bisque. .both he thoroughly enjoyed. Would definitely go back and recommend!!
