Wave Seafood & Steak at Danford's Hotel, Marina & Spa
Dining at Danfords is an experience like no other: one that delights your palate as you soak in the sights of the spectacular Long Island Sound. Perfect for that special celebration or for a treat any day, we're open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day - and on Sundays for our famous brunch. Come see what's here for you.
We came here for brunch to celebrate a late Valentine’s Day! The food and service were both top notch. All of the wait staff were extremely friendly and on their toes with making sure everyone in the restaurant had what they needed. We will definitely be returning for brunch or perhaps another meal in the future!
Thank you so much for the great review! Glad to hear we met all your expectations! Hope to see the Squad soon!
Unfortunately, I did not have a great experience at Wave Seafood. The main course was good/okay really nothing special and for the high prices was not impressed. The appetizers and cocktails were really good. It was my first time dining here and I will probably not eat here again.
Nice decor with water view. Great food.
Valentine’s dinner with my daughter. The room seemed old . The food was nothing special. The device was average.
It was ok. Had Calamari to start, super solid. Really good spicy tomato sauce to go over perfectly cooked and seasoned calamari. Dinner is where is got interesting. My date and I both had steak (this may have been our mistake). Mine was a little overcooked and hers was the same. Both were tougher than you should get for the price we paid and tasted underseasoned. Spinach and potatoes were good, but once again, not worth the price. Solid venue, especially in the summer, but you're paying for the ambiance, not outstanding food.
Wave Restaurant never disappoints!! The service was impeccable! The food was impeccable! And as always even in the rain the view is impeccable!
Thank you so much Linda for the wonderful review! Glad you enjoyed yourself and hopefully the view will be better. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Great service, excellent food and the ambiance was amazing.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review!
Went for dinner during Restaurant Week. The food was OUTSTANDING. The best I have ever had at Wave. We had a reservation, were seated quickly with a window seat as requested. Service was very prompt and attentive. Atmosphere was wonderful. Will be back.
Thank you so much for the fantastic review! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to serving you again soon!
We enjoyed the food, service and view.
Thank You so much for the review!
Good food, excellent service and the fastest bartender on Long Island!
Thank you so much Craig! Hope to see you soon!
We schedule an annual luncheon for a group of four every year. Its been a tradition and the Wave never disappoints or make us consider moving the event to another restaurant. The food is really good and the menu offers something for everyone. The prix fixe menu is a nice alternative. Our servers have also been exceptional, I believe this year we had Frank, he was outstanding and his amiability and professionalism should be commended. Thank you !
Thank you so much George for the awesome review! We truly appreciate your business and the kind words about our staff really mean the most. Frank is one of our stellar servers and I'm glad to hear he took such great care of you and your party.
Food, service great
Second time that the food was mediocre for my group and I. Unfortunately less than impressed and won’t be heading back. We always loved the ambiance here and will probably return for drinks at the bar but not the food.
Excellent service, price & delicious food. Ambiance is very relaxing as well
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We're glad we could make your experience as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to seeing you back here soon!
It was a really lovely meal. We had the good fortune of getting a table near the windows over looking Port Jefferson. Food was fantastic... although the server almost skipped the very excellent specials when she came to take our order... overall, it was a really nice experience. Looking forward to the next time.
We had a lovely dinner for my parents 60th anniversary. Excellent table with a harbor view, uncrowded, unrushed, excellent food, quality choices for vegetarians (yay!) and an attentive, accommodating server. A little pricey but it was well worth it. And I'll keep this on top of my list for the Port Jefferson area.
Thank you Michael for such a wonderful review! We're so happy to hear that everyone in your party had a great time. We look forward to serving you again!
Food presentation nice however hamburger cane out. Old
Everything was excellent!! I’ll go again
Thank you Peadar for your wonderful review.
Great meal and service. Excellent restaurant week option and will come back again.
Thank you Mike for the great review. We look forward to dinning with you again!
We went for restaurant week. My husband got oysters which he loved. I got the price fixe. I enjoyed my salad, the mashed potatoes and my steak, but it was a bit chewy. The bread pudding for dessert was a favorite among myself and my daughters. I would love to visit this place in the summer when they have outdoor seating and you are overlooking the water. Overall it was a very positive experience.
We went during restaurant week. I had only been there for a brunch and I definitely enjoyed dinner there more. It was intimate and quiet. We loved it. Food was good It wasn’t great but it was good.
We had a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed their meals on the LI restaurant week menu. The Gouda mashed potatoes were perfect
Thank you very much for the wonderful review! We're glad you and your party enjoyed themselves. We hope to see you back soon.
Great location great food and service was fantastic
Thank you Luke! We appreciate you taking the time to give us such a terrific and stellar review. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Always excellent, scrumptious, creative, artful food and outstanding service!
Thank you Lisa! We're glad you enjoyed your experience with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great food and service
Thank you Suzanne! We're very happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food needs to be improved upon. We ordered clams when they arrived they were not shucked properly. The clams were dead!
The crab crustini was bad the crab was off. The shrimp cocktail had no taste.
The fish and chips were delicious.
I apologize for your experience here and I can assure you we only use the best and freshest seafood around. I sincerely hope you are willing to give us another chance to make it up to you. If there's anything I can do for you, please give me a call at 631-928-5200. -Clayton. Restaurant Manager.
The food was okay at best. Definitely not worth what we spent. There are better restaurants in Port Jefferson for the money.
Hello Nicolas, I'm very sorry we didn't meet your expectations, but I assure you we only use the highest quality products and we aim to please all our guests. I sincerely hope you give us another chance to prove ourselves to you.
One other couple at 11am in the restaurant off the hotel lobby. Facility is adjacent to Port Jefferson ferry landing and is part of a high dollar marina. Guessing it can get busy. Sights from our window table of the landing and marina were excellent. Quiet dinning appreciated. Food was perfect. Service was courteous and timely.
Thank you for the review! Glad you enjoyed your meal with us. We look forward to you dining with us again soon.
Food Great, Service great, but if it wasn't for a gift card, i couldn't afford to go. Maybe a little lower price or put on Groupon.
Great food and service !
It was not busy and our server was terrible. Took 20 minutes from seating to get a drink, 25 minutes to get some cold bread, and 30 minutes to get unimpressive appetizers. Thankfully, the main course came out very well. After the lackluster experience, we skipped dessert and got some treats and coffee across the street.
Just a great place overall. We have been coming to danfords and wave since our wedding night 17 years ago. The food is incredible, the staff friendly and professional and the ambience and scenery are everything you would expect from an upper class establishment.
Terrible service waitress did not give us any attention forgot our salad I had a broken glass my soda was in it and when I told them they poured the soda from the broken glass into the new glass what if there was glass still in my soda? Cheep move!!! Food was not good fish salty and fishy steak under cooked also they opened windows and bugs were flying around! We asked for a burger and they would not serve us one because we had to be outside eating? Really? We might as well eaten outside with all the bugs flying around !! I will not be returning! Upsetting because we were celebrating my sisters birthday. They didn’t even make her feel special by singing with us! Expensive for just mediocre food and terrible service! Finally the bathrooms were disgusting!! Before I left I was sure to tell the management. They said they would call house cleaning! Gross!! Shame on this restaurant!!
steak overcooked. desert-very small portion. fish sandy
Server was not warm, almost argumentative. Asked for chicken dish without lettuce of any kind, asked for cooked spinach on side, instead got raw spinach on top, but eventually got the cooked spinach. Just wasn't thrilled with this experience. In times past it was wonderful. Took our boat over with friends who had not eaten there yet. :(
Brunch was amazing. Anthony the food runner did an outstanding job when he restocked everything at brunch.
This was my second time dinning here and this visit was entirely different than the first. My granddaughter, who is from Colorado and doesn't see to many fresh lobsters, and I both ordered two pound lobsters. I'm not sure how close to two pounds one of the lobsters was, while the other was probably in the neighborhood of three pounds. When there are two people at the table, and they both order the same size lobster, there should not be such disparity when they are brought to the table. I hardly think these were the only two they had left. My granddaughter ordered a side of garlic mashed potatoes, hers came with corn on the cob and red potatoes. I ordered my with no sides and mine also came with red potatoes and corn. There where no seafood forks available and one of the crackers broke on first us, and it was sometime until our waitress was around so that we could get another one. This all could have been overlooked if the lobsters were good. Unfortunately, they were so over cooked and chewy that we left half of them.
We took the ferry over from Bridgeport just to have lunch at the Wave restaurant and it proved to be a big let down.
We have dined at this restaurant many times but on this particular occasion (which was my birthday), it took 2 hours to get our entrees - and then they weren’t even hot.
We were all very disappointed. Up until this time, we have always enjoyed the food & service at Wave Seafood & Steak but after this experience, we may go elsewhere.
Usually I can't say enough good things about Danford's, and I'm sure that this was just a one time episode; however, my fillet mignon was dry and cold, and the mash potatoes were like glue. The two guests that I was with shared the lobster pot, which probably took at least a half hour to cook. They must have prepared my meal quickly, and it laid around in the kitchen until the other was ready. The ambiance and the service was excellent. As I said I have been there before, and the food was superb. Also, Saturday night in the summer, and the place was crowded. Sorry to complain.
This the LAST time we will dine here. We live close by and each time we hope the service will get better but no. For the price we expect good service (this isn’t NYC after all). The service has always been consistently BAD. Had reservations at 6:15 for 4 people. Our waitress had 2 tables. Two. Took 40 minutes to get our drinks. They arrived after our appetizers. I could go on but our bill was &270 plus tip - 3 appetizers, 4 dinners, 4 drinks. No coffee or dessert. Please. I’m willing to pay but it was a memorable meal for the wrong reason. We’re done with Wave.
