About Fifth Season

Local farms and waters are the inspiration for this New American restaurant that focuses on creating menus using ingredients that change with each season. American microbrews and wines are carefully selected to pair with each dish our chef creates. 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. Please note that we require credit card information to reserve parties of 10 more.

Wedding Anniversary dinner for two. Previously, we always dined here for celebrations and were blown away all around with service, food, ambiance. Regarded Fifth Season as an establishment to be proud of the experience. Unfortunately this time we were completely let down. Bus boy spilled enough water on me I douse my left forearm and thigh and menu. With a comment of “oops, well it’s only water, no harm done.” Then rudely came back singing while he cleared plates and interrupting our conversation. Food was cold duck breast and salmon was dry. And going on at other tables, the other waiter was speaking so loud as if there was a 100 people talking at the same time. To top it off the music playing was just irritating. Doubt we’ll be back!

Went for Valentines day. Food was excellent and the waiter was wonderful. Empanada (tiny but awesome), Thai rolls -(a bit spicy but that's what I was hoping for) and filet mignon - all very good. My wife had the Duck and she thought it was great. Pleasantly surprised to find salt and pepper at the table although I didn't need them (it bugs me when restaurants assume I wouldn't want any) . Nice wine list and the markup wasn't too bad. All in all, a real nice evening.

Time between appetizer and entree was much to long. The kitchen was at fault, service was good, food was good. Pre fixed for Valentine’s Day was way over priced.

We were a party of six on a very rainy week night. The restaurant was not full, which was nice because we were able to talk to each other. We have all been here many times before as it's close to home. This restaurant never disappoints. The food is always fresh, the dishes well presented, and the menu is diverse and interesting with enough choices to satisfy basic to adventurous eaters. On this night, most of us took advantage of a prix fixe that included appetizer, entree, and dessert for about $32. A seasonal sweet potato soup was absolutely delicious. Most of the seating is upstairs in a pleasant room that can get a bit noisy on a busy Saturday night but never overwhelmingly so. The service is always pleasant and attentive.

Five friends getting together. . . we enjoyed the ambiance, sitting in front of the fireplace on a cold evening. The menu had lots of choices and everything that we ordered was very good. My husband and I shared the charcuterie platter which was excellent. Our waiter, Mark, was one of the best we've ever had (other than really fine dining experiences in NYC). He was attentive, accommodating, and had a good sense of humor. He overheard me comment that the porkbelly was too fatty and brought us some more without our even asking.

Excellent restaurant for elegant well prepared and tasty food. Menu is relatively limited but specials add to the variety of the every day fare. Appetizer empanadas on fresh lemon sauce was very good. Entrees, duck and scallops were excellent, pared well with mushrooms vegetables. Molten cake was great. Highly recommended place for special or foodie regular dinner.

Warm and welcoming. Cozy and friendly. Professional and attentive staff. There is an elegance about this beautiful restaurant. Started with a "chicken pot pie" empanada, delicate pastry with a fabulous filling. I couldn't resist the kobe beef burger, for I know it well. My guest, fearful of the soy sauce that accompanied the salmon, loved the rich, brothy sauce without a hint of salt. Banana bread pudding for dessert was incredible. I didn't want to leave my comfy seat near the fireplace. Nicole, best cosmos ever. Mark...what can I say. Lucky are the guests that are seated in your section.

We had a very nice, quiet anniversary dinner on a Sunday evening. My wife enjoyed a vegetarian selection and I had roast duck preceded by a potato and leek soup. Both were well prepared and served in a timely manner. We have visited this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed.

This is my third visit and meal wise it was the best one so far. On my first visit I had a so-so roasted chicken dish (kind of dried out though I was happy that the chicken was organic); on my next visit I had a disappointing and not very savory vegetarian special (it had vegetables and cheese in a corn pancake - two other people at my table had it as well and didn't care for it); and my third visit was the best meal (the duck.....SO good) but the bartender didn't know how to make a Robroy or a Saserac (sp? ) or even how to improvise one. The size of the cocktails are a nice surprise but the specialty cocktails appeared to be on the overly sweet/candy-side.
The staff is always friendly and very accommodating. Prices are ok considering how much it seems to cost these days and the wine list provides some good lower end wines. Love the fun "surprise" gift cards.

Everyone in our party ate every morsel on every dish they were served and raved about how delicious it was. Even though I knew exactly what I wanted before sitting down, I decided to change to the lobster tail special. It was fabulous! The gulf shrimp appetizer was an inventive take on boring shrimp cocktail. I loved the addition of jalapeño. And what can I say about the Pecan Pie Sundae (with bacon) for dessert except, Yes Please! And I may be slightly addicted to your Pomegranate Margaritas. New favorites will replace my old favorites when the seasonal menu changes but I can always hope to see them again. We love the Fifth Season!
