Go for happy hour, enjoy the setting and the free baked ziti. Don't stay for dinner. The food is outrageously overpriced based on the quality, and even the pleasant service won't make up for the disappointing dining experience. And the noise levels in the dining room on the second floor will prevent you from carrying on a conversation without shouting.

Fifth Season continues to be a first-class dining experience, and Greenport's loss and Port Jeff's gain. Always a good selection of fresh seafood, as one would expect, but the ribeye didn't disappoint either. And the service is among the best on Long Island. As another reviewer mentioned, the quality of the desserts doesn't quite measure up.

This is as good as it gets on the North Fork. The setting is understated, sophisticated, country elegance that begins with a warm greeting upon arrival. There's a lovely, warm bar area for a cocktail. The menu is diverse with local selections, including Peconic oysters, and the wine list extensive. Every dish was perfectly done, from the organic chicken to the rack of lamb. Wonderful gelati and sorbets to conclude the meal.
