For all the hype and considering how expensive the meals were, we didn't feel it was a big deal at all. I would consider Morton's in Great Neck and Rothmanns a definite notch above these places.
We have eaten here many times over many years. It is our favorite steak house on Long Island. All the steaks we've ever had were cooked perfectly! One of the couples we go with likes their steaks 'black and blue'...only once in all the years has it been a bit overcooked, and they fixed it at once. The drinks are perfectly made and a very good size.
Love the steakhouse feel of this restaurant.
The waiters are very professional, and we've always found them to be very efficient and accommodating, never over friendly. We always make a reservation, and have never had to wait; however, we always eat fairly early 7 - 7:30.
Expensive, and in today's economy we are watching our money more carefully. However, Bryant and Cooper is a restaurant we will always keep for special occasions.
This is the ONLY place we allow our car to be valet parked. The men are older and very careful with the cars.
(I left a pair of reading glasses on the table one night and completely forgot where I had lost them, three months later I realized it must have been at Bryant and Cooper, I stopped by just on the chance they had found them, and sure enough the maitre'd opened his desk drawer and said, "are these yours?" Amazing!)
Food would have been OK if prepared the way we asked. Rare came back medium and medium rare came back almost well done. When we complained we were basically told that's the way it is with "thick" meat servings. All in all not a good experience.
Started out OK, but the couple (with child) across from us asked to move to another table which was done BUT...then they NEVER CLEANED UP the table they just left. All they did was wipe off a few crumbs...never even replaced the silverware that was originally on the table. When we mentioned this to our waiter we were told that was not his "station."
Waiter did not really listen or maybe he did not hear what we were saying.
For an expensive steakhouse, this was very low value.
