Food really disappointing no flavor obviously no freshly made not sure if due to Covid
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.
The lobster roll and catch of the day were excellent, the presentation was great. Service was quick an professional.
time between appetizer and main course very long and when main course arrived it was incorrect
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!
Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend it!
Nice place for a first date!
Always a great meal. Staff very attentive to my needs and special requests.
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!
The air conditioner was broken so it was extremely hot and the service was not good.
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.
No a/c in restaurant, food mediocre
Terrible would not go again. Food served cold or raw.
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.
Beautiful view of the Port Jefferson harbor with wonderful food and great service.
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
Little warm , maybe they were having problems with ac
Great food, great service. Nothing else to say.
Thank you for the excellent review!
Slow service, noisy environment, uncomfortable temperature in the restaurant. Overall will not be returning
Had the lobster roll. Nice and filling. Server was excellent he made some great suggestions. They had a DJ in the lounge, set a nice mood for the dinning room. Kept it upbeat and lively.
Thank you for your excellent review!
The food doesn’t worth the money value, and the service is bad.
When you reserve through OpenTable, know that they do not take outdoor reservations. The food was ok, nothing exceptional. Service was spectacular.
Thank you for your review!
Danfords is a nautical restaurant/bar located on the water. The food is good, not great. The service is unprofessional. Bread was a long time coming. Used dishes were not cleared away.
Sorry to hear about your experience. If you would like to talk about it, please call me at 631-928-5200 ext 112 and I would like to discuss how we can make this experience much better.- Clayton Goroway Director of Outlets.
Checked in but wound up staying at the bar. Bartenders were very friendly and helpful. Great personalities and genuinely happy to be there. Food was great- try the street corn shrimp, nice selection of cocktails and spirits. Dessert was excellent-the cafe gelato was heavenly.
Thank you for your excellent review!
Restaurant was very busy but the staff was very accommodating and the food was top notch. The manager even came and checked on our table a few times, greatly appreciated. I look forward to dinning again and trying more of the menu. The view was top notch. A gem of a location.
Thank you for the excellent review! Hope to see you again soon!
Danford’s location is beautiful. The restaurant is gorgeous and very inviting. We were seated right away. The food was meh... it wasn’t bad but was not great. The portions were not spectacular and the presentation was similar to what you would get at a conference banquet. The stuffed fluke was accompanied by a half cup of white rice thrown on a plate next to an even smaller serving of mass produced vegetables. The worst part about our whole experience was that we were not served our food until 1 hour and 50 minutes after we were seated. Our poor waitress was beside herself, apologizing about the backlog in the kitchen. I asked about a basket of bread or something and was told that was only done with dinner, I guess not for our $180 lunch (pre-tip) which included 4 entrees, 1 kids meal, 2 apps and no alcohol. But we did get beautiful photos.
We were told there was a power outage. The food came out in stages. 5 people. 2 got served. Then 2 minutes later, 1 more got served, then 20 minutes later, 2 more got served. Drinks were delayed. Wait staff was overwhelmed by kitchen mistakes.
Very sorry for your experience. Please contact me @ 631-928-5200 ext 112 so we can discuss how we can rectify this situation.
Excellent service delicious drinks
Thank you for your great review!
Service was poor. Waited hour and a half for our meal. They claimed kitchen was backed up. But table next to us that sat down much later got their food way before us. Waiter didn’t even keep the water glasses filled, had to ask repeatedly. All this on a Wednesday that was only moderately busy.
Birthday and Father’s Day. Very slow service. Some tables got up and left. We stayed and food was great.
Thank you for your review!
The food was excellent, the restaurant is very nice and right on the water.
Thank you for your great review!
As a frequent customer of the Wave we were very disappointed with the food. Two dishes were cold and had to be sent back.
All was very nice but the drinks were small for the price.
We had a table inside, the windows were open so we enjoyed the band. We had the breeze, the air conditioning and fans so it was comfortable. The food was good. It had a great vibe and service was outstanding. The only downfall were the fries that came with the fish and chips. We were expecting fresh cut steak fries or homemade chips, instead we definitely got thin cut frozen fries. They tasted ok, but for the price and the reputation of the restaurant, it would have made the dish so much better. Other than that, it a great experience.
