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!

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.

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 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...

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.

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)

We had a lovely table by the window which I had requested when I made the reservation. i really appreciate them fulfilling our request. We each had something different and all of the food was great. We look forward to dining with them again.
