The food was excellent, the restaurant is very nice and right on the water.
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.
Did not honor our 12 pm reservation and never called to notify us that they decided to have some construction work done thereby closing the kitchen until 1:30 PM. Need I say more?
At the very least a call would be expected, and better making arrangements with a nearby restaurant to absorb their disappointed diners. Never again.
Very sorry for your experience. We actually had no power that day due to a transformer exploding in the village. We tried to call everyone as soon as we could. I hope you can understand it was beyond our control and we hope you are able to give us another chance.
Great view, food was just okay. Chips on the tuna poke were stale. Rice on the chicken kebab was hard and the drinks weren’t what they said they were. The Georgia peach had no peach ring and presentation wasn’t what we expected. The band outside was terrible, worse then karaoke.
Expected more from them
Great food, great service. Dined indoors but felt like it was outside with open windows to a great view
Great place and view great will definitely revisit
One word: AWEFUL
Went for Restaurant Week. Seated by a window with a view. Limited menu. Appetizers were good with clams, shrimp, and a salad. Fish and chips were the best bet for entree. Overall an ok lunch in a nice setting.
The food was great. The place is right on the water and was very nice. Although the docks are not open yet to outside dining, it was very nice inside.
I got a card from the staff for my birthday that was really sweet. The service was great and the food delicious. Happy to see such attention to detail and the customer
My experience was wonderful and service was great. My only feedback is for the chef - my salmon burger was heavily breaded, I didn’t quite taste much of the salmon. I’m hoping this is not usual. I will certainly return for al fresco dining in the summer.
Everything was delicious! Can’t wait to go back!!
We were seated right away. Service was very good. Always available to provide you with anything you needed before and during dinner. I do have one suggestion. Knowing we are still confronted by the COVID19 virus, it might make sense to put wrapped squares of butter on the table with the bread. We pasted both the bread and the cup of butter around the table thus allowing six people to handle both. Just a suggestion.
Great food and atmosphere in a perfect location! At the dock in Port Jefferson relax with food or drinks.
Each member of the party barely ate any of their appetizers or entrees. The food was terrible.
It was date night for me so i had a nice quiet and intimate setting with a table overlooking the water
It was lovely to sit there and eat looking out at the marina. The COVID precautions were very good and we felt safe - this was our first time dining out in a year! My only suggestion would be to give a heads up on some of the market prices...we both ordered specials (soft shell crabs and lobster) but my husband’s dinner was twice the price of mine and half the bill. It seemed excessive and was a surprise when we got the bill. Other than that, everyone was lovely.
I am prefacing with that I understand it’s COVID and staff is limited & the manager was nice enough to reduce our bill, but I am providing feedback so the restaurant can see it & learn from it. They apologized and said they were understaffed & I usually have a wonderful experience here.
- Made reservations, but they don’t apply to outside dining. Regardless it’s COVID & reservations should apply t every area during this crisis.
- Seated right away, but took a while to grab drink orders
- Service was scarce. Long time to check back and refill drinks
- Appetizers were missing but never saw anyone to tell them
- We stacked our own plates and had them waiting to be taken, including our silverware from appetizers
- Meals came out cold & missing 3 side dishes
- No silverware given for the meals, including steak knives. - We were given regular silverware and ate Filet Mignon & flank steak with butter knife
- waitress could not answer the difference between the filet mignon & flank steak
Hoping to share the feedback in detail so the restaurant is aware of this experience. Luckily we live close by and will visit again.
Great food great service and great atmosphere
Thank you for sharing your great experience, we cant wait to see you again!!
Maxwell, the server, was awesome. The food and drinks were greet, and the view was very nice.
Thank you so much for sharing your great experience, we cant wait to see you again!! We will also share with Max your comments.
It was a sunny Sunday that we hope to enjoy our brunch in this restaurant close to the Port Jefferson Harbor. There was a fixed price lunch under $40 for the choice of one appetizer and one entree together with a tower set of donuts, muffins etc .
First of all, the tower set of donuts etc were stale and not fresh. I ordered the crab cake for appetizer and found the Costco crab cake would be much superior than these two floury cake with no taste. Most of the customers chose the lobster and shrimp roll for entree but the roll was just made with some tasteless popcorn shrimp and tidy lobster pieces stuffed between two piece of burned bread. The complimentary cocktail Bloody Mary come from the bottle mix with no alcohol.
This was a horrible brunch that spoiled our mood for the beautiful Sunday.
We understood the pandemic affected the restaurant but without putting any heart or efforts on the food and drinks, you don’t deserve any positive feedback or support.
My friend and I had a great time at brunch! We will definitely be returning.
Thank you so much for sharing your great experience, we cant wait to see you again!!
Great seafood and beautiful view from our table on the second floor. We will definitely be back.
Went to Wave for a lunch with a very old friend. She wasn't terribly hungry, but I was. And she missed out! My appetizer (tuna tartare) was incredible and the cocktails were wonderful. The view is from the dining room is always amazing too. And our waiter was attentive, but also patient with us. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and delicious place!
Food not worth the money, location great but ambiance and energy was low
Our server, Frank, was attentive and excellent! The manager came out several times to check on how everything was going. It was an overall great experience and I felt well taken care of during our dining experience. The food was fantastic as well.
Eating upstairs, we had a beautiful view of Port Jeff Harbor and the sun setting! Everything was perfect!
Thank you Susan for the wonderful review. We're glad you enjoyed everything. Hope to see you back soon!
First time eating here. And honestly I was very disappointed. It’s a beautiful boutique hotel but the restaurant experience really killed everything. Or main dish tooo about 45 minutes after we were done with our apps to be brought to the table and after waiting all that time to eat, the entrees were brought to our table cold. Very upsetting. The only plus about this experience was that they had live entertainment.
Dinning room can use an upgrade. Looked very dated. Food was good but served “warm” not “hot” that is always a turn off.
Very limited menu with no specials on a Saturday night!
Delicious and beautiful evening view of the water
Thank you so much for the great review! we look forward to dinning with you again!!!
Really nice brunch. And a great view
Loved the cover band. Made the evening. Happy they were able to play if only for two hours.
Great food and service. Beautiful view and ambiance.
Food was bland and expensive. We had high hopes for great seafood but this place fell short.
Was my first visit & I was pleasantly surprised- the ambiance was fun & festive- Katie & DJ our bartenders were attentive & fun! Food & drinks quite nice too.
Looking forward to my next visit.
dinner was horrible and overpriced....could have gotten better at frozen section from the dollar store
