    We ordered porterhouse for two, hash browns and onion rings. It was all delicious and too much steak for both of us. The steak tasted just as good the next day.

    It was a good experience however we waited and waited and waited and waited some more. The food took so long to come out and the waiters ignored us a lot. But the food is undeniably delicious.

    Meet the Meat never disappoints. The personal service, the comforting atmosphere and the steaks! They are right up there with the more well known Manhattan steak houses except the prices are more reasonable.

    Even though I haven't been back for a few years, the food, cocktails and service haven't diminished at Meet the Meat. It's easy to get to by car and if you go early there's no trouble finding street parking. Great choice in Astoria!

    Imagine: steaks that are comparable to those served by the finest steakhouses in Manhattan, but with service so warm and personal you feel that you are dining in someone's home, and at less cost. We have been going to MtM for years, and Adnan and his staff never disappoint. Try the smoked salmon appetizer, too. Delish.

    We visited during Restaurant Week and dined on meatballs, grilled calamari & buffalo mozzarella appetizers; lamb chops and filet mignon; and cheesecake & tiramisu for dessert. Everything was delicious especially the lamb chops (a generous 4 piece portion for RW). Comparatively speaking though, I thought the calamari dish was a little sparse for a $20 dish.

    I've reviewed MtM many times before, and commented about the value and how the experience rivals that of the many, more-well known New York steakhouses. This time, I want to speak about the main attraction, which is the food. The porterhouse is the best I have had, and I am a dedicated carnivore. Also, many of the sides are noteworthy too. The smoked salmon appetizer comes with the largest and freshest capers I have ever had anywhere. The oysters are fresh and delicious. The creamed spinach done to perfection. Definitely worth the trip.

    We were greated with smiles and made to feel very welcome. My family of 5 all had different items from the MEATY menu. We were all very happy with our choices. I ordered the ribeye on the bone and it was amazing.. needless to say all plates were pretty empty at the end of our meals.

    Our waiter was great, very attentive. Overall I was expecting more of the food but was disappointed. I don’t think we’ll be giving it another try. Everything lacked taste. We ordered the bacon which was dry, and so overcooked it was hard to cut and even chew it lacked any kind of flavor. The crab cakes, and wedge salad were delicious. Although it’s not served as a wedge just drenched sloppily in a dish with a ton of bleu cheese. I ordered the steak medallions, they were smothered in sauce and lacked flavor. It was a very chewy to eat, I had one and left the rest. My husband ordered the sirloin and it was fine. Nothing to rave about. We skipped dessert.

    The food was fantastic, although the appetizers were hit or miss. The grilled calamari was great. The mussels were good too. Unfortunately, the oysters had very sharp shell shards hiding in them that are easy to miss until you accidentally slurp one up and chew it or cut up your mouth. Thank god nobody swallowed one. Beware. The drinks were good too, and the steak was outstanding. We got the porterhouse for 2 and the filet mignon was perfection. The service was okay. Restaurant was fairly empty when we were seated and then ramped up as the dinner rush started coming in so I can understand if the servers got busier and less attentive. They were quite slow to bring bread to the table, slow to bring the dessert menu, and they didn’t honor our request to sing happy birthday to our friend when his dessert came — which is no issue on its own, but we asked if they can do it and they said yes! Then they just didn’t. All in all a great meal, great atmosphere, and o.k. service. Hopefully there is more bread the next time we dine here.
