    My husand and I went there late Sunday night. The restaurant was quiet and we were the last table of the evening but they were very accommodating and did not rush us out. The food was excellent and the restaurant was delightful.

  • Fell flat.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    We chose Jamesport Inn for a bday dinner while in Riverhead, and were disappointed. To begin with, when we arrived, the hostess took us upstairs and seated us in the art gallery. We requested seating downstairs (cozier, warmer environment), she insisted that the gallery would fill up. It didn't. There was 1 other table the whole evening and there were people walking through and checking out the paintings around our table. The waitress was busy and made us feel like we were her last priority. She forgot utensils, we got someone else's appetizers, and she rushed to & away from us. We were seated & waiting for almost 30 mins before she took our food order. The food was nothing special. The flavor combinations fell flat. Needlessly expensive.

  • Tasty Lunch in Pretty Inn
    BrooklynGal
    Dined on 9/19/2014
    I and guest had a pleasant, tasty lunch in a nicely restored Inn. There is an extensive wine list of local North Fork Long Island wines that you can order by the glass. We ordered their signature lobster BLT sandwich. The desserts were also winners. The restaurant was not crowded so we could easily have a nice conversation. I'm sure it's livelier at dinner and on weekends. The servers are young and friendly, but this is the one area where I'd suggest a bit more professionalism in a restaurant with Manhattan prices. If you use GPS for directions, enter Riverhead as the town address, not Jamesport.

    This was our 5th annual dinner at the inn but it didn't live up to previous experiences . The sauce on my sea bass was too vinegary and unedible. The lemon sorbet on the oysters was delicious , but the oysters were too cold almost frozen. I tasted some of the dishes others ordered and they were fine .

    The service and food were good. When we arrived, we were seated at a table for two in front of a window. In an alcove on my left was a table for six and to my right a table for four. We were the only ones seated at this time. After our drinks were served, the table of six were seated. After our appetizers, the table of four were seated. The rest of the dinning room was empty! I don't know why they thought to close us in like that. It was a little uncomfortable. Also, there was a wedding, which I presume was upstairs, and it was a little noisy.

    We loved our dining experience at this charming restaurant. My lifetime friend was in from out of town, and our two families wanted to celebrate our many years of friendship. The seven of us were in an alcove which gave us the feeling of being served in our own formal dining room. The service was outstanding, and the food superb. We were not rushed, and the quiet, beautiful atmosphere lent itself to an evening of warm conversation of times gone by, both in our own lives, and the early times of Long Island. We recommend it highly!

    We had an excellent lunch in a lovely outdoor garden. At the next table, a woman (part of a couple) was being extremely obnoxious and demanding. The servers did an excellent job of handling her and (unnecessarily) apologized for the the disruption. We were there with out of state guests and would go back in a minute.

    We were married at The Jamesport Manor in 2011. We moved to the south fork and haven't been to the restaurant in about two years. Saturday evening we brought another couple who are "foodies," and we are all still raving over the wonderful service and fabulous food. We will indeed make the trip more often. It was truly a wonderful evening!

    We have been here before and found the food excellent. The other night , the food was good but not great. The tomato and mozzarella salad was very good. My husband had the crab salad ( we shared) and it was missing something. It was lacking a strong acidic or spice flavor. Hubby had the duck, he enjoyed it, very favorfull . I had the organic chicken with goat cheese. The chicken was excellent. Crispy and very moist. The goat cheese was just a schmear on the breast. Nothing on the thigh . This was served with an acorn squash purée . It was cloyingly sweet. There was another sauce but I couldn't even taste it because of the purée. Too much, too sweet. Very good wine list !

    We went here Saturday night for dinner with 2 other couples. We came from out east on the North Fork and one couple came from Westhampton, so it was a perfectly situated location for all! We got seated almost immediately. Our server was pleasant and efficient, and very attentive to our needs. All 6 of us loved all our dishes, and stayed chatting until we finally left so they could close up! We all said it was a great find and would definitely come back again.

    My husband and I, and family and friends, have dined here several times. Jamesport Manor is a lovely place and the food is wonderful. Maybe we hit it on a bad night recently? The wait staff was off. Wrong food delivered, courses missing, long wait. We'll probably give it another chance someday...but not anytime too soon.

    The Jamesport Manor Inn is a beautiful inn on lush grounds situated with a view across horse pastures and stunning sunsets. The building itself was rebuilt in 2005 with period detail from it's original state. It has warm woodwork and a lovely fireplace. The small wooden bar is cozy and begs one to snuggle up to it. All the tables are in comfortable spots with views or interior architecture to keep one happy. The good was presented beautifully and very delicious! The menu has a good range if taste for every palette. My husband and I will go back again!

    Delicious local fresh ingredients. Excellent flavors. The chicken with goat cheese was very good. The acorn squash puree was a bit too sweet, but the other flavors on the plate were complimentary. My husband enjoyed the crab cake. The mushroom toast appetizer was very good. We enjoyed wine outside at the tables before going in to the dining room. This is a great place to sit close to end of day. The wine selection included local wines, but I would have liked additional other options also for the reds.

    Wife and I went to JMI for an early dinner. We had a 6:15 reservation. It was our first time visit. I was a little nervous when we saw only two other tables with people dinning. But by the time we were finished there were tables filling up. The food was very good the menu is small. Eveything we ordered was fresh and cooked perfectly. My wife ordered the prix fix. Beet salad w goat cheese, I had the same for app. for meals she got the chicken over puree potato with asparagus and vanilla creme burlee for desert . I had the same app as wife and I really wanted to try the pan seared scallops over pollenate with small carrots. Everything was awesome. We just drink water. The bill was 86.00 Will definitely be going back.

    Jamesport Manor Inn feels, as it should, like a dining room in an upscale (though not luxury) country inn. The decor is old-fashioned but not fussy, and the servers are young and friendly. The food? I have no complaints, but I would guess that the chef graduated from the Culinary Institute of America with a B average. All in all, the Inn offers a pleasant dining experience, but nothing worth driving far to have.

    Food was very good - crab salad, ravioli, salmon were excellent. The wine list is not extensive, but the local wine selection is good. The ambience is very comfortable, fits in well with the bucolic North Fork feeling. It would be nice if they had some outdoor tables during the summer, perhaps even opening up the views to the sound or at least the adjacent land.

    Picked this place based on convenience to visiting vineyards and on comments from other open table members. Truly excellent food... Lobster club for lunch was terrific . Wife's salmon was sent back but that was her preference being at odds with how the kitchen likes to do the dish...no arguments... Just a few minutes wait...and because of that..they "comped" desert and coffee..totally unnecessary . Setting is beautiful and restoration of this old house makes it all that was much pleasant. Highly recommend.

Started at bar for drinks & rcvd friendly, generous information of restaurant history and permission to view photos & rooms upstairs. This started our evening on such a positive fun note that was just the beginning of a wonderful dining experience. Reasonably priced, I would definitely recommend!
