Steakhouse
Bryant & Cooper opened in 1986 with big ambitions: to bring the top tier New York City "steak house experience" to Long Island. Not only would the very finest quality, hand picked prime aged steaks be served, but an ambiance would be created that makes everyone feel like they are part of a special private club. For membership...just make a reservation. Founded by the three Poll brothers with two generations of restaurant ownership experience, Gillis, Dean and George learned at an early age that the secret of a great restaurant was to start with serving the very best. That is why the steaks, chops and jumbo lobsters are selected on a daily basis, and only the freshest side dishes find their way to a plate served at Bryant & Cooper. Over the years Bryant & Cooper has received superlative reviews for its entire menu. The New York Times has proclaimed it the "best steak house on Long Island."

The worst place ever it was my first time and my last time there, the waiter was rude beyond belief! We ask what was the best steak on the menu he said he didn’t know for me to look so we did then I said we will take the porter house for 2 he said you know that’s 120.00 I said yes I know I don’t care about the price then processed to say well you can’t get it well done everyone at my tables order he messed up nonetheless I was still upset about the price reference my daughter said maybe he just has to be clear with ppl ok then a young couple around 20 if that sits down right next to us and they order the porter house never once does he say ya know its 120.00 so I definitely had to approach him about that and his answer was because you looked at the menu!!! Wait didn’t you tell me you didn’t know what the best steak was and to look at the menu ??? Are you serious and the menu clearly stated a price that couple didn’t look at the menu maybe you should have said the price to them just despicable!!! I asked for the check and paid with my BLACK American Express card . Very rude and disrespectful I will never be back there again!

Lovely upscale establishment. As it is a steakhouse, you can expect higher prices, but well worth it if you love a good cut of meat. Avid fans of soft-shell crabs, we were pleased that they were available and made a terrific start as appetizers before we moved onto the Porterhouse for two. Absolutely delicious. The staff are pleasant, accommodating and knowledgeable.

We had our anniversary dinner here and it is now our favorite local steakhouse. We hop around to a lot of different steakhouses because it’s our favorite splurge food for special occasions. The Cajun Colorado Rib Rye steak and sides blew us out of the water with freshness and taste cooked to perfection. I’m not a fan of Cajun spices because they tend to be too spicy for me. However, this was the tastiest rub I’ve ever had on a steak. We can’t wait to go back!

When it comes to a Porterhouse for Two Bryant and Cooper are in a league of their own.
My Wife and have dined here a minimum of Four times a Year for more than 30 Years.
Usually the noise level is too high in order to enjoy a conversation. We were delighted this time as the noise level was moderate due to 75% capacity. Our waiter was very good and his support staff was superb. The maitre' d Was nicely dressed and most personable. He walked past each table to be sure all was up to par.

Food and service were excellent. I rated food a 3 because I specifically asked if the salmon was wild or farmed, and was told it was wild, but when I got the meal it was clearly farmed.

With a reservation they had no seats inside the dining room
Had to eat in bar area
Drinks are loaded with mostly ice and little vodka for $15
Steak - sirloin and filet mignon were just ok
Hash browns were raw
Creamed spinach was ok
Waiter did not dole out the potatoes and spinach to us.
Will not go back
They obviously have favorite customers that they dote on
There are other steak houses to go to
Had to wait 20 minutes for check

This restaurant is good I imagine if you have a steak which is pretty up there. However, to go for fish is crazy. They give you a piece of Salmon without a single thing on the dish and charge $35.00, filet of sole $36.00 without a dab of anything to make it look nice. I would go to a seafood restaurant before there in the future. I don't know how steak is, but, it seems even more expensive than Peter Luga's and I would rather spend the money at Peter Luga before there. The waiter never even came back to ask how anything was and was not so interested in giving explanations on the food they have to offer. We eat in all the expensive restaurants around Long Island and the Borough's including New Jersey. I would not say this was anything that special.

Not my first time and despite the following negatives, I'd probably go back because the food is good.
Nice clubby steakhouse feel, very efficient though not cordial service.
Cool greeting by host, waiter slapped the paper receipt down at the end.
Yes, they are doing you a favor by waiting on you.

I think if you were perhaps a regular or with a large group it might be a better experience.
To some degree the nonchalant demeanor is part of the steakhouse experience.
So, if impersonal treatment is not an issue add a star.

I haven’t been to this establishment in a number of years but my memories were good and I wanted to see if it was as good as I remember. The food was good but my porterhouse was to rare. I asked for medium and it was med rare. I would have sent it back but my friend refused even though he agreed. The waiter didn’t tell us the specials, it was a very tall heavyset man. He seemed mildly interested in serving us and that was a little annoying . Otherwise the experience was decent. Typical steak house ambiance and the rest of the food was very good.
