    This was our first time there. It was to celebrate our anniversary. The service was impeccable! The venue was quite unique and very romantic. We were slightly disappointed in the food, Not that it wasn't delicious, but we had heard so much about it over the years that I think we both expected to feel like it was the best meal we ever had in our lives. Not so..........we felt we certainly enjoyed our steaks from Peter Luger's to be better as well as a few others. I had a 12 oz NY Strip, and she had a nice skirt steak. We've also ordered from 2 on line beef sites like Omaha Steaks & Shaul's, and we'd rate both above this night. However, we will be back and quite and hopeful that the management will have done something by then. Thanks, Bill

    My daughter and boyfriend came to visit and since I very much like that to happen, I "bribe" them with as outstanding an experience as I can think of. Taking them to Tellers is an absolute winner! If they think that whenever they visit mom and dad, they'll get a meal at Tellers, I will be getting visits much more often. Food is absolutely outstanding. I always get the Tellers special bone-in ribeye and it's worth every dollar!

    Disappointed. $300 for an average meal. Nothing memorable. Best thing was the glass of wine and clams. But the clams were of diff sizes and 2 were too large to enjoy. Bread was not warm or tasty. Bacon appetizer inedible. Just overall disappointing. Steak was average - Better off at The Outback.

    Hi. We arrived at 715 for a 715 reservation and were seated right away. Luis was our waiter. He was fantastic. We were a party of four. Two choose the restaurant week menu and 2 ordered a la carte. I had the Filet Wellington, Wedge salad and Cheesecake. My Wellington was cooked exactly how I like it. The cheesecake was perfection. Wine pairings were included with the meal at a fifteen dollar upcharge. (restaurant week) 3 glasses for 15 dollars. Outstanding. I truly love this restaurant. Thanks for another great dining experience.

    Tellers is a restaurant housed in a actual bank, circa, 1923. There is the historic element here with the high ceilings and top to bottom narrow windows with the vault where the wines are stored actually intact and visible, makes for great atmosphere and ambiance. We dined for lunch. I had as an appetizer lobster and shrimp wontons with a miso glaze and a touch of hoisin sauce. Excellent. My wife had a Mediterrean salad with asparagus. The salad was set off to one side of the plate to accent the three asparagus which lay underneath. Excellent.for entrees we both has crispy skinned salmon in a mustard sauce with potato and Applewood smoked bacon hash. Excellent presentation taste and service. Extraordinary!.

    I've been to every upscale steakhouse on Long Island and excluding The Palm Tellers is by far the best. The bone-in ribeye is unbeatable. Have never had anything but a perfect meal there. Expensive but worth every penny. Will definitely be back.

    We went to Tellers on November 1, 2014. The food was outstanding and the service exceptional. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. The bill came to just over $200 for two people, but it was worth it. We ate crab cakes for appetisers, Filet Mignon and sorbet for dessert and coffee. Drank Glasses of Prosecco with our meal.

    We were in the area on business and took a recommendation to check it out for steaks. The host was super attentive and polite. The bar tenders were very nice and attentive. The drinks were well over priced though. When we sat down for dinner we were all impressed with the building. The place is pretty cool. Wicked tall ceilings. Our waiter was awesome. Answered all our questions. Food was cooked perfectly. Tasted awesome. Only other gripe would be the salads were way over priced. All else was reasonable. The aged steaks were fabulous. Would definitely go back.

My wife and I don't splurge a lot on a fancy meal but when we come here we don't care about the cost of the check. Go all out and you won't regret it.

    We waited over an hour for our table (we had reservations) in an overcrowded bar area. We were then seated upstairs in a small, crowded and extremely noisy room. It did not get better from there. We did not get bread... Had to ask for it twice ... Waited forever for our meal and drinks. When dinner did arrive they forgot our side dishes.

    This restaurant used to be our go-to place to bring guests and to celebrate occasions. About a year ago, I wrote directly to your managing group to inform it that my wife & I had been displeased one evening; the group graciously gave us a gift card which we used a few months later, only to note a consistent decline. We returned two nights ago, only to find that everything - from breadbasket to Porterhouse to side dishes - were unremarkable, although the prices ($4 for a cup of coffee, $4 for club soda) took their toll. What's going on???

    Teller's was an awesome experience, the appetizers were delectable, the entrées were perfectly cooked and seasoned, the service was attentive and chock full of tips and recommendations. The whole establishment has a great ambience and the high ceiling in the dining room projects a sense of grandeur. We went for a birthday and were treated like royalty. Remember to save room for dessert as they were scrumptious as well. As good or better than any steakhouse on Long Island or Manhattan. I look forward to going back soon!

    We went to Tellers for my husbands birthday. The food was delicious. However, my husband had to send his filet mignon back twice for it to be cooked properly. He ordered it medium well and it came back rare both times. Once it was done correctly, the food was incredible and they were kind enough to throw in dessert for us. The service was a bit slow and I felt our table was a bit neglected. The roasted brussel sprouts with pancetta were incredible. We will definitely come back again.

    Good food, unquestionable. But for high priced food comes higher expectations. My $14 cocktail was severely subpar. Oysters were fantastic. My steak, (boneless ny strip), definately did not meet my expectations for a $55 steak. Too much fat, very little flavor for an aged steak. It had been a few years since we dined at tellers befor this last outing, and I have to say it's gone a bit downhill.

    Tellers, in a former bank building, is a stunning venue. Service is top notch and the food is spectacular (you can't miss with the steaks, and I particularly love the filet mignonette Wellington.) Sides are generously portioned to share. The rich whipped potatoes and the Brussels sprouts with pancetta are stand outs. Cocktails are served with style. The wine list is impressive. I've never gotten to dessert...maybe some day.

    BEST STEAKHOUSE ON L.I...building is a former bank and quite nice. They kept the bank vault which is a nice touch to house the wines. Service, food, ambiance great. Server brought our drinks immediately. $19 price fix luncheon menu the best. Choice of appetizer and/or salad and entree. Shrimp appetizer the size of lobster tails..delicious! Hamburger cooked to perfection..steak diane wonderful. Birthday gal had filet said it melted in her mouth...side of mac n cheese big enough for table of 3 with plenty left over. By far Tellers is #1 in our book.

    The art of customer service is alive and well at Tellers! Our dining experience was what we were hoping for - a quiet, delicious and well served meal - thanks to our professional server Lisa. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and Tellers made it one to remember. The lobster bisque was light and creamy at the same time, the filet Oscar and Ribeye were cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. Tellers hits the mark on all counts.

    The steakhouse in an old bank. Beautiful restaurant and bar. Wine celler is in the old vault. Excellent service. Nothing unexpected on the menu, mostly steakhouse standards. The oysters were superb. The steakhouse tater tots were quite good and the lobster Mac and cheese had a ton of lobster in it and was also very good, the porterhouse for two was perfectly cooked. The black pepper bacon appetizer wasn't very good. (next time I'll double up on the oysters!). Drink menu was varied and delicious if rather weakly poured. A must go, Long Island needs more restaurants that are on this level. Hard to find good steakhouses around here.
