I am not really a fan of places in strip malls but it is convenient and has developed a good reputation. Food is pretty good but service and atmosphere are just average.

Very hard to get reservations, now I know why. The food was superb, place is small, but nicely decorated. Seems like there are a lot of regulars. I started with the lobster bisque. It's different, not creamy white, more salt watery brown. Still very good with chunks of lobster. My wife had the grilled octopus, fantastic! Tasty and tender. Entrees were Plank cooked Artic Char with escarole and the fillet mignon with creamed spinach and fries. Both perfectly done. Finished dinner with the creme brulee, mocha pot de creme and cappuccino. Meals are a bit pricey, but you pay for what you get, a very good meal. Service was very good. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. I will definitely be coming back.

What a great little restaurant with excellent food and a super atmosphere AND great service! After reading several reviews for the Brass Rail, we decided to head out in a new direction and check out the nice little town of Locust Valley. We were so glad we did! The grilled octopus was out of this world as was the tuna tartar ( pics posted). Also had the lobster bisque and the calamari- both really very good... My personal favorite was the lamb which was recommended and did not fall short. We got reservations on "open table" and as the dinner hour got closer, we were glad we did. Coffee and a dried cherry cobbler for desert - overall, a great place to eat and they can accommodate even larger groups.... Well done!

Will remember this dinner - Chateaubriand & asparagus to die for...
Almost gave up because resevations via Open Table said nothing was available but when we called the restaurant a table was open. I am so glad because our trip from FL would have been lacking without this dinner. Service was great but the food was fabulous. Three people; wine; appetizers (stuffed artichoke); entrees (chateaubriands & NYStrip); desert (cremated brule) & coffee - $140 with tip. Great deal
