We actually never even sat down to eat. The morning of our reservation the restaurant called to change our time. They were not serving brunch at the time we originally had. When we arrived the host informed us that they were not serving brunch at all. He stated that our choice of breakfast was French toast. I asked “only French toast” he replied yes. Sorry but that is not a choice. My biggest issue was that someone took the time to call and change our reservation but didn’t feel the need to inform us that they were not serving a brunch at all. I have had brunch at this restaurant before and it was great. My party was very disappointed

Booked based on the brunch menu listed on Open Tables app. Very disappointed arriving at restaurant only to find no such menu was being offered.

Vegan options were sparse. They did not have the items posted on the menu. Chef was inflexible about making something off menu.

Everything was delicious and service was outstanding at the bar. My only disappointment was the Charcuterie "board" came on a plate and was not what we were expecting for the price. Otherwise, always a pleasure.

Entree (filet mignon and lobster tail) took over an hour to come out. We waited so long and no one was coming to let us know what the issue was until they admitted they didn’t have the dish and had to thaw out the lobster which took an unacceptable amount of time with no explanation. The manager came out to apologize after we asked for him, and only offered us one complimentary dessert…for TWO people. That left a terrible impression on us and we will not be returning…we paid too much for babysitting to have a ruined dinner!

The food was meh for the price. There was a wedding literally a curtain behind our table and the children were running through our dining room our entire dinner. It was okay, but not for the price. The catered event should have been in a different part of the restaurant.

Great place with a great view and top-notch food. Expensive for what you get but that is balanced out with the views of Port Jefferson harbor so all in all a great place.

We were staying at Danfords and decided to have lunch here. Way too overpriced and food was average. I must say the sweet potato fries were delicious. But everything else so so.

We came here for the outside view and ambiance, unfortunately it was raining but that didn’t ruin our experience. We walked in and the bar was nice and crowded, always a good sign, they had a musician playing in the corner who was excellent. The hostess greeted us with a smile and showed us to our table promptly. We had Edgar as our server. He was so funny and knowledgeable. He recommended the tuna and catch of the day. Both were so fresh and cooked to perfection. I’m very picky how I like my tuna and the chef nailed it perfectly. Topped the night off with a night cap at the bar. Both girl bartenders, Megan and Shayna were very friendly and you could tell they enjoyed working there. Definitely will be back soon. I love this place!

We ordered the octopus and it was over cooked . My husband ordered the Tuna medium Rare it came medium well. I ordered a specialty cocktail The lets get smashed which consists of a organic gin , simple syrup, tonic, mottled blackberries and mint with a lime garnish.I normally would never order more then one but this particular cocktail was delicious. I ordered a second the second one came with 4 limes thrown in the bottom with blackberries no mint I took a sip It was awful. I waited for the waitress to let her know but it was not going to happen so I went to the bar myself and the bartender graciously said I’ll make you a fresh one and brought it over to the table put it down and said not everyone makes it the same. Okay but the ingredients are on the menu. The second one still sucked not the same gin no care was taken to make a special cocktail. The spinach berry salad was okay but I will say the Burrata was excellent but as for heirloom tomato I don’t think so. Also it was my husband’s birthday that was mentioned in the reservation .

My husband and I visited Wave on a weekday last week. We decided to eat inside as it was too humid on the outside patio. The room is nicely decorated and was cool. The waiter came over with cold water and gave us menus. We ordered the cheese board and shrimp. food was delicious and came out quickly. We enjoyed our appetizers with two specialty drinks... We ended by sharing a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. Service was excellent as well as the food. We will definitely be back.

They had a problem with the A/C, but they open the two big windows and it was perfect. We could hear the band in the back deck. Very enjoyable!

Food was excellent. Had a reservation for inside but asked to sit outside and they were more than accommodating. My server Max was very knowledgeable and helpful. View was beautiful. Staff was very helpful and energetic despite it feeling like it was 100 degrees out. Love this place! Highly recommended.

Booked outside table through open table for our visit from FL. When I arrived I was first informed there was a thirty minute wait for outside tables and that they don’t accept outside reservations though open table. They acknowledged that they don’t tell anyone that Open Table doesn’t let you reserve outside tables but “sorry”. Bad business. By the way, half of the outside tables were open. Frustrating to say the least. Poorly run restaurant. Go somewhere else.

Lovely dinner on a summer night. We opted to eat indoors by a row of open windows rather than outdoors in the sun (the angle of the setting sun made the umbrellas useless at that hour). The food was great, if somewhat expensive. Great people watching. Will enthusiastically eat here again.

Staff was excellent, but food was a disappointment. Overall, pretty flavorless, both the appetizer and entree. The calamari is apparently “famous”, but was not good. Overly rubbery and flavorless.

My food was not cooked, the waiter made me wail for a manager to take it back. My guests were finished eating by the time they took my plate away. I feel they shouldn’t have charged me since they weren’t very accommodating
