If you usually go to NYC for your steak, try this place in Astoria. The steaks, along with the service are outstanding and at very reasonable prices. My ribeye was cooked as ordered and equaled any previous ribeye I had in Manhattan. Great dinner and great people.

as my friend mentioned, probably one of the top 3 restaurants in queens and I totally agree. great food and great service. Manager and staff were so nice and so accommodating. We had brought our dog and wanted to sit outside, but there was no empty tables. What do they do, they bring one out. And it started to rain, what do they do, they bring out a huge umbrella. All this with a smile on their faces. The drinks were nice and favorable. The food was delicious and plentiful. Naturally, we needed to take some back home since we couldn't finish it. Not skimpy on the side dishes as well. Huge portions. Can't complain at all. We finished the night with a delicious tiramisu and smile. we will be back. the only downside was the drag racers which kept going back and forth but I was told it was very unusual.

We had a great diner I had the Bone in Ribeye and my wife had the Petite Filet Migone and both were cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. We had a great bottle of Red Wine and finished it with a pecan pie.

I took my husband here for his birthday. He loves meat so I thought it was apropo. I had the filet mignon and creamed spinach. My husband had the ribeye and mac and cheese with mushroom. The filet mignon and mac and cheese were the stars of the table, however, the creamed spinach and ribeye were very good.

Everything for the evening was perfect. Meet the Meat had the best variety and selection of any restaurant that I have visited for restaurant week over the last 15 years or so. And, they do not skimp on the portions. We are already planning a return trip with friends, even though we have a long commute from Brooklyn.

Decently crusted meat gave a nice flavor. Desserts were very enjoyable. A bit pricy.

My dining experience was just OK. The food took a long time to arrive. The scallops were well-seasoned, but a bit overcooked. The Porthouse for Two was cooked just right (medium rare) and well-seasoned, but the tenderloin side was much, much better than the loin. My side of hash browns was well-cooked and buttery. The service was friendly and attentive, but again, slow in terms of the actual meal delivery. I really wasn't a fan of the food being wheeled out on an industrial plastic cart like it was the overhead projector from my seventh-grade geography class. My date liked the whiskey selections.

Generally very good. Manager/owner was very friendly. Greeted us on arriving and leaving, and settled us off nicely with drinks. No need to ask for restaurant week menus, we were given the choice.
As we left we were encouraged to come back.

Only downer was a longish wait for our main course because of a large table ahead of us.

When I have a long layover in NY, I must dine at MtM. Each time I have been greeted warmly and with attention. The staff knows I love my ice water—-it is never empty. Though that may sound like a little thing, it’s the little things that make for a wonderful night at MtM.

Every meal (ribeye, filet, etc.) has been prepared with mouth-watering delight. Hard-earned dollars spent well.

Needless to say: “I’ll be back!!!”

Excellent service yet again and great quality food. I highly recommend the French onion soup and the roasted Brussels sprouts.

Their home made sauce is quite good as well, and the only steakhouse I have been to in the city where it is heated.

The service and the food was better than one would expect. This place is like a diamond in the ruff. Grating from the owner and staff was so warm and then to cocktails and apps followed by one of the best bone in rib steak and by far the biggest. Others had the porter house steak for 3 that was fantastic as well
