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!
