    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Wonderful restaurant that's all about the North Shore of L.I. We just did Thanksgiving and everything was special and memorable from the hostess's warm greetings, to the pleasant demeanor and knowledge of the serve staff, to the picture window Fall-season view, to each course (I went off holiday tradition with a wonderful, delicate sea bass and a light, fluffy yet creamy lemon souffle for dessert), to the local wines, ending with a north shore ice wine for dessert #2. My suggestion to folks who think of "the Island" as a trip to the Hamptons, think Rt 58 or 25 and a stop at this gem.

The atmosphere was great for a romantic night out, but there were also many tables full of couples dining out together and groups of friends. The food was really great- the crawfish mac and cheese was outstanding. Service was also great. All in all I highly recommend it.

    This was our third and final visit (very disappointing)! We arrived on time for our reservation and were waiting for 20 minutes when a trio (who arrived 10 minutes later) were seated before us. When I asked the maitre d' why we were not seated first he responded that this was a table for 4 and if they weren't seated there, they would have to wait an hour before another table was available. He said our table would be available in a few minutes. We were quickly ushered upstairs to a private dining (party) room where 2 other tables were occupied. The room was lovely but if we wanted this kind of ambiance, we would have eaten at home. The food was good but not great. The service was good. The maitre d' was less than gracious. Not worth $!

    Can honestly say this wonderful restaurant had the best food I have had to date on the north fork of Long Island. The Veal Chop was cooked perfectly, as was the food for the entire table. My only minor suggestion is that the bar needs to be more exact when mixing drinks to achieve authentic and consistent results. Now that I have discovered this fine dining establishment I will not be dining on the south fork again anytime in the near future.

    Maybe because this was restaurant week, this place was a big disappointment. If the purpose of restaurant week is to have your try a new place that you would normally do not go to to get you to come back the effort at the Jamesport Manor did not succeed. The entrees were only average and the Apple Crisp dessert was horrible. Doubt I will go there again

    Overall excellent dining experience. Went there for our wedding anniversary; we had requested a quiet table - which we were shown to immediately (corner window table) despite being early for our reservation. Service was smooth & efficient without being overbearing. Food was delicious and menu choices were imaginative & pricey - but very good. Wine selection was high-end, though - would have preferred some bottles priced under $40. Very good house wines by the glass, however. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a delightful evening out.

    My date and I had a very nice experience at this restaurant. The setting is a beautiful inn with lovely wood work everywhere. It's a cozy place for winter dining, too. The food was all very well prepared with attention to local ingredients. Delicious local oysters, scallops, striped bass, vegetables. The service was friendly and attentive. My only bad mark was in the dessert. It was a chocolate torte with a molten center. The outer cake portion was very firm and very dry(almost stale tasting). Lots of liquid needed to swallow it. Coffee was just average. A nice French roast would have hit the spot.

    We went during LI Restaurant Week & were looking forward to a good experience, as we had heard many good things, but were disappointed in the food - beef bourgignon was too smoky & "mushy," chocolate torte was extremely dry. Best thing was the salad. Service was also lacking, as we felt we were rushed through dinner & never offered any bread after the initial roll & never asked if we wanted coffee - dessert was simply brought to the table. We are 4 who will not be returning.

    Selected the Jamesport Manor Inn based upon web info., feedback from customers, etc. We were just in wine country - NorthFork for 2 nights. Chose the Inn because of on-line menu and web photos. Although we had a later reservation (It was during Restaurant Week) we called and they were kind enough to find a spot for us. Everyone was outstanding, and with just the right amount of teamwork 9 drinks, orders, plate presentation & removals..... All the food was timely and perfectly done... from veal chop to salmon..... Would recommend it to others - but reserve a time as walk in may be difficult, esp. on weekends.

    Jamesport Manor Inn was a charming restaurant and the food was sophisticated and delicious. The only complaint I had was that the restaurant week choices were very limited - at least if you wanted to stick to the $24.95 price that was featured. Yes, there were many additional choices on that menu, but they all were extra charges. If I wanted to pay more, I would have requested the regular menu!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Appetizers and dinner were excellent. We were a group of four and I had a small taste of everyones main course and they were all excellent. Well balanced and interesting. The desserts were not even close to the level of the first courses. The apple crisp had a sandy oatmeal topping that was difficult to eat. The chocolate torte was overcooked on the outside ring; hard and chewy with a boxed cake taste and the fruit torte (peach? pear?) tasted overwhelmingly of citrus zest. I know this was restaurant week but the dessert will almost keep me from coming back. I would have preferred something small but delicious. I have to reiterate that the first two courses were outstanding. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was excellent.

    Jamesport Manor Inn is charming very romantic. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and were surprised with complementary chanpagne for the occasion. The dinners were treats both to the eye and palate. The hangar steak was done to perfection and the veal chop was absolutely delicious. Adequate portions and an elegant setting made the experience quite memorable. The only negative was the pricing on the wine list, especially for the local Long Island wines. We would most definitely return.

    We had a very enjoyable time and the server was helpful and friendly. I was a bit disappointed in the ambiance -- I was expecting a more elegant room. The appetizer (crawfish mac & cheese) was delicious & I would definitely order it again. However, my scallops were nothing special. We shared an apple crisp for dessert & again it was good but not "to die for".

    Overall the dining experience was very good to excellent. I found no flaws with the food, and some aspects of what we had were extraordinary. The wine suggested by the staff was exceptional; we were looking for a local wine, and I can honestly say the white offered was one of the more flavorful ones we've had in some time. The service was very good, and the staff was very attentive. The interior, while newish and somewhat spare, had many period details and was very appealing.

    I was slightly disappointed. The room was very pretty. The wine list was interesting but pricey. There were very few low cost options. The menu was extremely pretentious. I pride myself on my knowledge of food and there were at least 10 things on the menu that I'd never heard of. I don't have a problem with new things, but the actual quality of the food didn't live up to the menu. It was good, not great. I think the chef would be better served if he concentrated on making the dishes taste good and worried less about wowing us with his knowledge of obscure ingredients.

    For the money I spent (and I am used to spending 150 - 200 for a good meal form my wife and I) I was disapointed. The food was for the most part was so so. My main course (duck breast) was lacking a cripsy skin. The sides were lacking in flavor. My wife had three sea scalops for $30.00 and again everything on the plate was lacking in flavor. The presentation was wonderful, but the chef needs to realize that taste is the main factor. The wine list featured Long island wines and was over priced for the quality of the wines produced. I had a glass of cabernet Franc and it as 12.00 and the quality was not there. I have had many Cab Fancs in the past and this was one of the worst. The abiance was wonderful as was the service.
