    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!

    I took my girlfriend here for a special occasion and it couldn't be any better. I had the rib eye steak and it was more than i could ask for. Our waiter (forgot his name) was outstanding. Friendly, and extremely informative about every single item on the menu. I will be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    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.

    One of the best dining experiences I've had in my life. From the architecture of the restaurant to the interior design to the host's attitude to the waiter's attentiveness to the delicious food to the swift service even though the restaurant was busy. If you are looking for an incredible restaurant experience and you're in the mood for some excellent steak or seafood, and maybe some wine, look no further. Check out #thevault

    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.

    Loved the ambiance of the place. Sat in a room upstairs that only had 4 tables. Quiet enough to speak in normal voices. Our waiter couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The food was delicious and again the waiter was very helpful in explaining the menu and how things were prepared. Would recommend in the drop of a hat. Is pricey but great for a special occasion.

    We have been here MANY times, but never with our daughter. She just turned 5 years old and we thought we'd treat her to a FANCY place for dinner. She LOVED it! The service was great, as they treated her like a little princess. Catered to HER every need even though it was a busy SAturday night. When we left that evening, she told us it was the best birthday ever! Thank you so much for making her feel so special. It was truly appreciated!

    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.

    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.
