    Tellers provides excellent food with presentation and service to match. I haven't been disappointed in any visit. Our last found the sides done as well as the aged signature rib eye, strip steak and filet which were perfectly prepared. The scalloped potatoes, 5 cheese mac and cheese are both crusted and flavorful. The duck fat fries used to be gratis and a token surprise. It was odd to add them added to the menu at a trivial 3$ for the table; still worth ordering. There are things on the menu that can make this a modestly priced meal. My wife and daughter split an entree which more than satisfied them. Creme brûlée and Guiness ice-cream great. Once again thoroughly pleased with the special meal provided.

    This is our go-to place for birthdays...consistently good! Ask for a table downstairs...the high ceilings of this former bank make it a wonderful space. Upstairs, while nice, is just not that special...but this in no way takes away from the great steaks!

    We love Tellers. We decided to eat in the bar/lounge area this time. It was a very lovely experience.. ....very intimate and quiet. The food was outstanding, as usual. We had the baked clams and shrimp cocktail as an appetizer, followed by the porterhouse for two with two orders of the truffle fries with our steak. The steak was done to perfection. We also ordered a lovely bottle of wine to go with our dinner. Great place to go!!!!

    First time a tellers. Greatly enjoyed the experience. Service was outstanding. Not overly burdensome but my wife realized our waiting watching from a far to make sure we did not want for anything. Probably the best service I have experienced at a LI restaurant. Food was very good, lobster mac and cheese was outstanding. I had the teller rib eye, which was very fatty even for a rib eye. Overall would recommend.

    We have visited Tellers a lot over the years and it has always been a great dining experience. They have monthly wine events that let you taste great wines from their collection. The prices went up recently for their food, so expect to spend a decent amount for dinner. Overall, a great dining experience.

    Teller's never fails to offer up a wonderful experience. Our family thoroughly loved our dishes and happily shared in small tastes! The wait staff is always attentive without being overbearing. The atmosphere is wonderful. This is certainly a great spot for special occasions or a casual lunch.

    I made our reservation with Open Table and requested that the occasion was for a 75th birthday and would like a quite table. The restaurant was pretty empty but we were given a table on the second floor, didn't even know they had a second floor, up a spiral staircase and table in the middle of dining room with a birthday party of 12 next to us. Not very quite, our food order was wrong and who gives a 75 year old a table on the second floor without an elevator or bathrooms? I complained about the location and was told I should have called in the reservation and not used Open Table if I wanted something better. Not the best recommendation for Open Table. I guess I expected more from a expensive steakhouse, will find another.

    We brought Mom there for her 89th birthday. Staff was attentive (except when we really wanted the check to leave), dinner was exceptional for Mom and I. The home made tater tots were like mashed potato puffs, and rather inventive except it didn't mention cheese in them... A big no-no for my hubby! (We should have sent them back, because he wouldn't eat them, but Mom and I did!). Mom had lamb, I had the filet, husband had the NY strip which he found very underwhelming. A pretty place. We will go again ,

    This is our third time dining at Tellers. We travel from San Diego every summer and we go here to celebrate our family being together and summer birthdays. The food was superb. The atmosphere is always lively and the service is right on. This time our our server was slower coming to check on us than usual, which may have been that he busier as the night wore on.

    If you are looking for a good steak dinner, you can't go wrong with Tellers. They are always on the money with their food. The steaks always come out as you ordered them with absolutely no surprises. The starters and sides were all excellent. You have to order the duck fat french fries while you are looking over the menu. They are surprisingly good. The wait staff is friendly and attentive without being cloting or intrusive. This can be a tough balance to strike.

    Appetizers and Steaks were awesome! We weren't thrilled with the duck fries or the mushrooms. We had the raw clams and baked clams to start. They were good, fresh and no sand! I had the filet Mignon wellington and that was so delicious! It was prepared to perfection! And the presentation was perfect! My husband had the steak and it was also perfect. Cooked to his liking! My husband and I both had drinks. The wine was excellent. I just thought the prices were very high! We've been to many steak houses and prices are always high but Tellers is even higher! We will go back just not as quickly.

    I love this restaurant, but I made a huge mistake accepting to be seated at the bar because the main dining room was full -not my fault, I booked in advance!!- the blonde lady attending that area (3 tables and the bar) was just not caring, too busy. The A/C was terribly high that I was almost shivering wishing so hard to leave. This kind of restaurant can't afford having a one lady with a waiter to cover a dining area, just can't. I had the usual surf & turf and I paid the same as usual (around $160 for dinner for two including drinks) without the fancy, classy and great service you get at the main dining room.
