April 14, 2018 Giuseppe Pratt

Stony Brook is a hamlet and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County, New York, on the North Shore of Long Island. Begun in the colonial era as an agricultural enclave, the hamlet experienced growth first as a resort town and then to its current state as one of Long Island's major tourist towns and centers of education. Despite being referred to as a village by residents and tourists alike, Stony Brook has never been legally incorporated by the state. The population was 13,740 at the 2010 census.

The Fifth Season

Local farms and waters are the inspiration for this New American restaurant that focuses on preparing menus using ingredients that change with each season. American microbrews and wines are carefully selected to pair with each dish our chefs create. Enjoy our House-Infused Artisanal Cocktails made with seasonal purees and fresh squeezed juices while overlooking the Long Island Sound on either the outdoor patio, upstairs seating or cozy lounge. Established in 2004 in Greenport, this Zagat top-rated restaurant for both food and service moved in Spring 2008 to Port Jefferson harbor.

Reviewed By funtimefamily12 - Long Island

Came for my son's birthday. We were seated promptly. Waiter greeted us and took drink order. We placed our order and waiter brought bread. He brought more bread and more bread. It took so long to get our food we were so full of bread. The hamburgers where good as was the 2 Chicken Rieslings. My daughter's spicy chicken sandwich was awful. Chicken was rubbery and chewy, they waiter took it off the bill, but my daughter only had fries for dinner. She didn't want to order anything figuring we would all be done eating. The original wait was long enough. We were in the area behind the bar, mood lighting is fine, but when people have to use the flashlight on their phone to read the menu is a bit much.

Reviewed By Kira D - Stony Brook, New York

Se Port Deli is a 5 star food establishment. There is something for everyone! All of the food is the freshest and they use the best ingredients. From sandwiches, wraps, burgers, salads, chicken fingers, side salads and desserts there is nothing that isn’t delicious. They also have the best fountain ice tea around!!! The biggest problem is deciding what to get each time!!! Se Port Deli is by far the best deli on Long Island!!!

There is something for everyone with sizes from tiny tastes to enormous. We enjoyed a Pecan Coffee Cake and a Chocolate Log. Both were excellent and very fresh. Note that they are open late even on Sunday which can allow you to pick up an evening treat.

Completely unexpected based on location, but friends have been multiple times and could NOT stop raving about it. Had a FABULOUS birthday dinner for my mother here - everything was super fresh, delicious and we can't wait to go back. The only downside is having to limit your meal choice!

O Sole Mio

Reviewed By Mark C - Scottsdale, Arizona

With dozens of Italian restaurants selecting ‘the one’ is a game of skill with some luck thrown in. Fellow TA reviewers make the task easier.

The portions are latter almost family style. We shared the Calamari and Brócoli Eabe for appetizer. Good choices, additional seasoning on B Rabe would have made it better. Linguini Pescatore, Fettuccini Alfredo, Rigatoni Mama Mia and Pollo Paesano were all cooked and properly cooked. Sides included pasta or veggies that were fresh. Chianti was well priced and good complement to the food. We were too full for desert. Will be back next time in the area.

Reviewed By Justmemat - Selden, New York

Service mediocre, food not special. What hair for my girl's birthday in the morning and order the eggs benedict which were very very runny. Tasted okay except English muffin underneath was not toasted. I don't know how you screw up an English muffin and forget to toast it but they did. Potatoes that came with the eggs benedict for Bland at best. You could tell they are using a high-quality potato but all you can taste is paprika and blandness. Cousin had french toast which she said was very good and fiance had pancakes which also were very good she said. No one came over during breakfast to ask us how everything was except for in the very beginning when only two out of three of us had gotten our food. They never came back to ask us if we needed a napkin or anything else which I definitely did because eggs Benedict is messy. They only came back at the end to ask if we wanted to check or anything else. Very mediocre experience at best will probably not be back

Reviewed By Ian T

FIrST: it has moved to Medford NY, w-a-y out in Long Island. Absolute must for people within a reasonable travel time.
Long list of appetizers, each better than the other. I have had some of these e.g. Baba Ghanoush, a mashed eggplant concoction, but never so delicious. It seemed that every item was prepared with great care. Same goes for the entrees, which cover the gamut of food categories. We were a group of ten, all raving about the food.
Warning: very slow service, although it was exceedingly friendly and helpful. Don’t come if you are in a rush!
