Diner Reviews
  • "If your travels take you to the North Shore, then definitely go to The Brass Rail or its sibling Heirloom Tavern. Both serve better than expected fare in a bistro setting. Never disappointed or disappointing."

  • "This was our first time there, chose this from Zagat, no wonder it's listed. We had a 7pm res and the noise level was moderate but by the time 830 rolled around, the level really picked up. Food was different from most menus, which is what we were looking for. From apps and drinks to main course and dessert, all was SPOT ON! Service was outstanding, will def go back!!"

  • "Went for lunch on a recent Saturday. Full dinner menu offered (no separate breakfast/brunch menu). Included sandwiches, salads, and "light bite" small plate items, as well as full dinner entrees. We were the only ones in the place and got great service. Food was FANTASTIC! Not a bad dish on the table (and we're picky). Highly recommended: short-rib quesadilla, rock shrimp, lamp chops, green beans, asparagus, ceasar salad, shoestring fries. My son had the reasonably-priced filet mignon ($33) and ate it all before I could try it. I wouldn't believe this review if I hadn't been there myself. To be honest, we have been there on previous occasions when it was more busy and it wasn't as consistently great but this time it was PERFECT!"

  • "Came here with my husband he had a hard time narrowing down his choices! He loved the tuna tartar and the lobster filet Mignon sliders. French onion soup was excellent too! Will definitely be back!"

  • "This is a great place to dine for four people but if you are only two having dinner it's like eating with strangers. We had the same problem at the sister restaurant Heirloom Tavern which is why we've tried this one, it's a bit roomier than heirloom but it's an uncomfortable experience. We're really sorry because we really like the food choices the drinks and the service"

  • "Once again they hit it out of the park! Each time we go we bring friends and they always rave and thank us. Specials are great... don't miss small plate lamb chops, mac and cheese, ACTUALLY it's all great."

  • "We enjoyed our meal at the Brass Rail. We would have also enjoyed some lighter, more vegetarian fare. While they offer salads, they have candied nuts and fruits in them, so they really are not very healthy. (The Caesar salad is terrific, but it has cheese and ham which are part of its wonderful taste. If you are looking for a good, meaty meal, this is an excellent venue. The service is perfect."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Everytime I've come here I've had nothing but a great experience. A place where every bite you take makes you wish the meal wouldn't end. And they make an excellent dirty vodka martini! Keep up the good work!"

  • "My wife and I have been to the Brass Rail many times and each time we truly enjoy our meal. The food is terrific, the service friendly and professional and the prices are reasonable. The menu is eclective without being weird or intimidating and everything from salads, the wide assortment of appetizers and "small plates" to complete dinners are outstanding."

  • "The food was good. My wife and I had the chateau Briande) not sure of the spelling. A lot of potatoes but little meat. The asparagus were very good but could have eaten a few more. Some vegetable appetizers would be nice on the list. I do enjoy the choice of tap beer but feel riped off on the small size on the glass but being charged full price. My wife and I left to go to another local place to have a few more beers and Wines. There prices were 1/2 your, drinks were just as good and the beer glass was a full pint"

  • "My wife and I went for Valentines Day. They had their usual menu with great specials. We were seated immediately then greeted by our waiter. The food was excellent as it always is. The service friendly attentive but not intrusive. For a small neighborhood restaurant, this place is run on the highest level. The only drawback is that you have to book reservations far in advance."

  • "Two of us arrived and we were seated at our table(none of this you must wait for yr party to be complete before being seated) Nice patient waiter as the others drifted in slowly. We had some appetizers that were very good (salads). Main course varied (which I liked because you didn't need "all that food". I had solicitous fish tacos,others had jagervurst ( loved) grilled chicken sandwhich and some repeats. All were delicious and well served. The ambiance is warm and cozy. Overall a great experience."

  • "This is an excellent restaurant for Locust Valley. I love coming here with my family because the food is outstanding. I love the way they marinate their meat. It's so juicy and succulent each time. Compliments to the chef. I also love the ambiance and coziness this place has to offer."

  • "This is the best of the best in my book. The food is overwhelmingly good. Our favorites are the short rib quesadillas, the fried oysters, the parmesan crisp on the Caesar salad (ask for extra) and the chateaubriand. I have brought everyone I know to this restaurant and will keep doing it."

  • "Very nice place with great food....portions smaller....but very loud if seated in the bar, where everyone seems to know each other!"

  • "We visited the Brass Rail because its burger was rated one of the best on Long Island, and were delighted that everything on the menu was delicious. (The shoestring french fries, which were too thin to have any potato favor at all, were the only exception. Order the truffle Parmesan fingerling potatoes, instead.)"

  • "We loved it here so much when we went, we ate there two days later...and we were not disappointed the second time! Can't say enough good things about this place. Food is delicious and elegantly presented. The staff is knowledgable and experienced. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic - but it doesn't seem stuffy at all, more like someone's nicely appointed living room. Can't wait to go back! Try both the caesar and the duck - neither will disappoint!!!"

  • "The restaurant always is terrific. It is great for dinner and small meals , if you are not to hungry. Being it was New years Eve, there were 6 people, and everyone enjoyed their meal. The Sea Bass special was perfect, and the appetizers never disappoint. They also Great as Usual!!!"

  • "Slow service did not deter from excellent small plates, wonderful wine list. a bit noisy for a weekday night."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "The classics all have a twist of something special. The Appetizers (Bar Menu) you can do TAPAS with. I can't pick a favorite, but first timer suggestions would be to start with chicken wings and ribs (they fall off the bone). Quesedilla is awsome too. All bar menu apps are amazing! Really. You can go to small plates or entrees depending on how hungry you are. They have haute cuisine daily specials...Fish, exotic meats, pork... Certainly is something for everyone. Don't miss the lobster mac n cheese. I can go on and on, but this place always ROCKS!"

  • "The food was very good but service wasnt that great. the waiter and servers made mistakes with orders. my 2 friends ordered dishes only to be told 10 minutes later" out of those. Then when food came to the table, that 1 original order was on table and my friend said, thats not his. that was for a different table. next different order was on my other friend's, . that friend said i didnt order this. we were all what' s happening here? the waiter apologized ."

The food is very, very good with a range of menu selections to suit all appetites and tastes, and is beautifully presented. We shared and salad and an appetizer which were divided in the kitchen and served individually to each of us. We look forward to our next visit. Highly recommend."

  • "I've been to the Brass Rail many times. It was a favorite but my experience on Oct. 10 left me feeling I won't be back anytime soon, if at all. We sat for at least 10 min. before anyone came over to our table & then was asked if it was okay if he could take another order before our drinks. He finally returned, took our drink & food order, we had to ask for bread, only 3 drinks came, food came before the 4th drink finally arrived, with his apologies, which became the theme of the evening. How many times does your server say 'I'm sorry' during the course of a meal. The tables in the restaurant are so crowded together that we were constantly bumped throughout our meal by people and servers trying to pass. There are plenty of other eateries"

  • "We picked this restaurant because it had a diversified menu, with reasonable prices for todays day and age. The reservation was at 8:00. Our table was ready a nod waiting for us at 8:00. The appetizer salads were all fresh and delicious, and my husbands soup came nice and hot. I ordered salmon, prepared differently then the menu suggested. They honored all my requests, and it was delicious. Everyone at the table ordered something different, from pasta with lobster and shrimp to halibut, and everyone enjoyed their dishes. We would definitely go back, and definitely recommend trying it."
