We went there last night with 4 adults and an infant and an 8 year old. Waitress was very patient and accommodating. Food was good, everyone was very patient for our lengthy time to place and order and 2 food allergies. I was very happy with our experience. I haven't been her since 2013 and it's holding up so please visit and enjoy. Menu was varied and good for a diverse group.d
the only drawback to Sunday's Brunch was the over crowded dinning room. We constnatl y had to shift to let other guests pass.
Service was very very good. I think our server''s name was Sean and he was efficient and attentive. No complaints. The restaurant was packed and a few of the stations ran out of food and were not replenished. Thought I could get eggs at a Sunday Brunch but it was not happening. Desserts were wiped out and my friend and I had to split the last piece of cheesecake. The experience was good, but I've been to better brunches with more food and more variety.
A friend and I went for brunch. It was not our first time there. We have always enjoyed the food, service and view. My only complaint was that the restaurant was very crowded. We had a lovely window table with a fabulous view. However it was very difficult to get back and forth to the buffet. I feel they overbooked the room which didn't leave an aisle. Every time I got up, I felt I was inconveniencing those who sat in the only path to the buffet. They were very gracious guests, but I felt a better path should have been planned. That being said, we will definitely be back and recommend it to others.
Awesome Dinner Excellent service.
The best Bloody Mary's Around
Wonderful Atmosphere. I highly Recommend Danfords when you visit Port Jeff
The service was impeccable. The food was exceptional. My experience was great. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.
Enjoyed it immensely! Take a trip to Port Jefferson and enjoy this gen
This restaurant has a great location overlooking the Port Jefferson ferries. It is elegant yet cozy and warm The food and the service are outstanding! We look forward to our next visit.
It was absolutely wonderful experience and delicious food . Great ambience and friendly staff
Food was Great
Wanted to try Restaurant week here and it was great. Had a great view from our window table, great service from Tara, our server - and the food was great as well. The warm bread pudding dessert is not to be missed - just fantastic!
This was not the first time I dined at Wave and it won't be the last. You have a stunning view of the marina and Long Island Sound. The decor is soft and comfortable, and the bar is long and immaculate. I have never seen a time where the bartender isn't having pleasant chats with patrons. I'm nuts about the wait staff, and they have always been quick to recommend favorite dishes. I'm an appetizer eater...meaning I enjoy several appetizers to make my entree. Wave never fails me with good proteins, great vegetables and all delicious. Their ravioli selections are great! I try a different one each time. Their dessert selection is good, and my current favorite is cappuccino creme brûlée. Book your reservation!
Had lunch with my nieces~ was perfect !! Food, service, view, all worth returning to!!
Nice atmosphere and excellent food. Overhead heater was overbearing and uncomfortable. Tables too close together so wait staff had to reach across table to serve you; tres gauche. Not worthy of a $100 per plate restaurant. Would think twice about a return visit.
Our server was GREAT. He was very patient Out chairs were comfortable and table was a good size but 1/2 way through dinner a woman started singing and it was so loud! We couldn’t really hear one another and one of the reasons we went to a restaurant instead of a club was so we could sit and talk. So next year we will prob choose a different more quite place.
Danford’s has had a reputation in Port Jefferson for upscale dining, hotel, etc. Unfortunately, other than the space, beverage selections/service and cuisine are on par with quality diner fare. Cocktails were served in incorrect glasses and bar ware was cheap. Hard liquor selection was surprisingly limited. Appetizers and main dishes were, again, pedestrian and/or simply not executed as one would expect for fine dining. Example: Atlantic cod served with fennel - the fish was almost cooked properly but arrived cold and was tasteless, served on a surprisingly dense potato-hash bed and surrounded by two small and tough bits of fennel necks. No sauce to speak of. Overall: Very disappointing. The view is lovely but if you’re looking for a quality meal, look for a better alternative.
Very pretty for the holidays,....very good food,....those in my party traveled from the city,...they took booklets,...they plan to return.
The room was freezing the food mediocre and the drinks were very overpriced.
The Wave is our go to place for a business holiday lunch for the last five years. We have always experienced very good service and great food in a festive waterfront atmosphere. We look forward to coming back for many more years to keep the tradition alive but to visit at other times of the year also. Always worth the trip!
I felt the meal was over priced. $8 for a plain baked potato! The steak was ok however, not worth the cost.
Our food was truly outstanding. We especially loved the red wine, the cheesecake dessert (the bet we have ever had), the trout, and the potato leek soup. Our waiter, Austin, was the best we have ever head in our lives. He was so professional, polite, and knowledgeable.
First Visit to Danford's for dinner during Restaurant Week with friends. Everything was exceptional; the food as well as the service. Kudos to our waiter, Austin, who was more than accommodating. He went well above and beyond to make our dinner enjoyable. The new chef prepared a delicious menu with wonderful presentation.
The food was absolutely delicious. The views are exceptional and the waitress was one of the best I’ve ever had. I would definetly recommend the Wave at Danfords.
The food quality this visit (during restaurant week) was very disappointing. Four people in our party of nine had the pork chop, and all found it extremely dry; no one finished their dish! One person had the chicken, which was also overcooked and excessively salty. Those who ordered the short ribs (an $8 surcharge on the price-fix menu) or the salmon were happy with their meals. The service was prompt and efficient. During our last visit the service was extremely slow (also a kitchen problem), and this time it was the food quality. Two strikes...
My wife experienced the resturant week menu. Food was excellent!! Service friendly and proper. I can't wait to return and enjoy the food.
Food was great, service great, will return again!
Food was good and having dinner on the water was a nice touch. Our server Phil was excellent very professional and checked in with us throughout our dinner. We will be returning.
Thought we'd have a nice night out on the water. While the decor was nice the food was mediocre at best. Steaks way, way overdone, as was the salmon. Appetizers came out lukewarm. Bread came with dinner. AND to top it off the bill was $170 per couple. You can do better at a nice steakhouse.
Went for my anniversary and we were very happy with service, food, and pricing.
Atmosphere is awesome...would definitely recommend!
Beautiful view of the water from out outdoor table. The weather was perfect, the food even better. It was our first time dining here and we will definitely be coming back. Outstanding!
I was only disappointed that there weren't more egg choices at brunch. There was only the omlette station which had a very long line.
Loved it food was delicious and so many choices!Loved the experience!
Disappointed. I have dined there before and had good experience This left me wanting (a lot) more. Overpriced for what we received in quality ...:.underseasoned, slow service. I am a New Yorker so expensive dining is what I am used too. But I also expect service and food quality. Sorry folks at wave - you missed the mark. Big. About the only thing positive was the location. Other than being on the water, not much else was memorable. Let's just say my next visit to Port Jeff will skip dining at Wave Seafood. I will happily return to the Fifth Season to eat again though (Right up the street)
My family lives in CT and comes by Ferry. We eat here frequently traveling back and forth. Great views food and service.
Very unhappy with the quality of the food. This is our second time going and being disappointed. I will not be returning.
It took 45 minutes to get our apps. They were cold and inedible. My entree was cold as well. Bathroom was filthy
Of our four meals, three were absolutely atrocious. The pork chop was dry and hard as a rock. Third and last bad experience there.
