We waited 45-60 minutes for our table. Several people were complaining about length of wait and time for food to come out. Our meal was good and the service was also good.

My husband and I took my Parents here as a Thank You on 1/21/18, and it was fantastic!!! Our waiter was excellent-he was friendly, knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. The rest of the wait staff was also very helpful and polite.
The food...it was one of the best steaks I've ever had in my life! I had the Filet Mignon Wellington, which I would absolutely order again, every one else had a different cut of steak which they all loved, and we all shared different sides and appetizers. The thick cut bacon appetizer was surprisingly delicious and we all loved the duck fat fries. The sides that we all shared were the loaded baked potato (which was huge), the tots, brussel sprouts and the scalloped potatoes, of which the tots were probably the favorite with everyone, but it was all very good! We also all ordered dessert, a banana cream pie special, creme brulee (one of my favorites), and Tellers homemade chocolate ice cream with coffees. Nothing disappointed, we will definitely be back when we save up for it again!
There is no dress code, but for the most part, everyone was dressed properly. I would NOT go here in a t-shirt or old jeans, the restaurant commands a nicer dress than that. Lastly, parking can be difficult as they're right on Main St. and have Valet parking behind the building, we bit the bullet and went valet as there was nothing else open.

Food was very good and cooked to perfection. The strip steak however had a line of fat running through it making it a little chewy. Service was great! Very expensive

Tellers has always been a favorite for the crabcakes and the beef. Speaking of which why is "meat lovers paradise" not listed on options to check above? There is a new Prime Rib Special that has lured us in twice now and it does not disappoint. Great place for a wonderful meal... or to elope to and sign a marriage license right at the table as we did on 1/18/18.

Excellent meal as always at @BRG "joint"! Tellers never disappoints!

John N. took exceptional care of me in the lounge. He seems to have quite the fan club, as people kept coming over to bid him goodnight as they made their way out the side exit. And I can see why: He's an attentive, friendly server without hovering and really knows his food and his cocktails. It was a pleasure to chat with him about both.

My first time eating in the bar area and it was a great experience. I told John to tell Chef it was one of the best Wine Wednesday meals I ever had, and the dessert was THE BEST non-chocolate dessert I ever had, so compliments to the Pastry Chef. Tellers should add the Butterscotch Pudding to the regular menu.

ps: I just made reservations for H20 Islip and Verace for Restaurant Week this weekend, two other BRG places. I suggest you do the same at either of those two, Monsoon, Prime, or Tellers of course.

Thank you for reading!

Tables on top of tables. Extremely crowded extremely small tables and the noise level is deafening. On top of bad acoustics due to such high ceilings they play loud bad music which makes dinner conversation impossible. There is literally no room on the table for these large meals steaks with sides. I ordered porter house for 2 medium. It came out medium rare. Should learn if you want great steak there is only 2 choices on Long Island. Bryant and Cooper and Lugers. This was a very unpleasant dining experience

Teller's is our local "special place" and this time did not disappoint. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar before dinner. We wound up having a nice conversation with the Bar Manager, during his trips to the bar. Very Friendly and Helpful! While reviewing the wine list prior to dinner, we asked him what he thought about a couple of choices and he steered us in the direction of a wonderful wine to have with our dinner, and cheaper than what we were looking at! Those are those nice little things that made this an outstanding experience.
As always, the food did not disappoint. Some Tuna Tartar to start and then the porterhouse for two with a side lobster tail. Brussel sprouts and mushrooms. No desert this time. We went back down to the bar to have night cap!

Our server on the second floor was excellent and the food as usual was cooked to perfection and very tasty. Yes its expensive but for special occasions it's worth the extra money.

Always a great experience! Chef Villatoro never disappoints. Brian our server was a true professional and never skipped a beat! The seafood salad was absolutely amazing! The lobster thermidor was to die for and my porterhouse was cooked to absolute perfection! The accompaniments were great. We went with creamed spinach, Parmesan scalloped potatoes, lobster Mac and cheese, and garlic mashed potatoes (we had a lot of leftovers)! Desert was amazing I have the hazelnut cheesecake and my wife had a peanut butter parfait. All said and done we had great night and we can’t wait to come back for our anniversary in February!

Our first time at Tellers however not our first time with the BRG Group Restaurants. This is a lovely restaurant, we sat upstairs which was quite cozy however the tables were a bit cramped. The service was very good and the food was good but not as good as I had expected given the price and our experience at the other BRG Restaurants. I expected that Tellers food would be as good as Primes but unfortunately it did not stand up.

The food here is always delicious however we experienced one of the most rude waiters. In short we left the waiter, who if you aren’t familiar with Tellers, just take your order and then servers bring you your food, dessert, drinks etc, a 15% tip (we tipped the servers separate a little something). The waiter had the audacity to return to the table with the cash tip and tell us “we do really well here, your tip is low.” In hindsight we should have taken his tip and left him nothing. We called the manager the next day who was apologetic and verified that a customer can leave whatever tip they like and that there is no minimum percentage that has to be left.
Embarrassing for a fine restaurant like this
If you are a manager at tellers reading this post I do hope you kept your word and took care of this situation with the waiter who should be appreciative that he got any tip.

It was my birthday and 6 of us. They were going to seat us upstairs, but we had my 87 year old Mother with us and they were fast with a table on the main floor, so she did not have to climb the stairs. The service was wonderful as was the food.
