Great service, reasonably priced wines, great steaks... We had the Tomahawk Steak and Porterhouse for two, cooked perfectly... The host did tell one of my friend to take off his cap before we can get seated, understandable.. I did feel a bit underdressed.. Overall, great experience

The food was great but the service was bad. After we were seated, took forever for the waiter to come. We had a small table by the corner tight spot no room for our food.

My children flew in from Chicago during a nor'easter, and wanted to dine near the airport, on their way into the city. I did a little investigating and chose Meet the Meat. FANTASTIC! The kids were late (Uber trouble) but there was no pressure, only understanding! The steaks were juicy, flavorful and tender. Branzino wiped from the plate, pronounced yummy by the kids, and they are traveling foodies! Service unobtrusive as we all caught up, but attentive and I will return!

Adnan (the owner) and his attentive staff provide just the right balance between affording you privacy to dine at your own pace, and at the same time staying close enough by to ensure that every request is immediately addressed. In addition to the perfect steaks and other staples on their main menu, this time MtM offered some new and creative specials to mix things up. Thank you again, Adnan.

A great family owned steak restaurant like the ones we used to have before they all went corporate. They treat you like family and will be sure to prepare your meal the way you want. I’ll make this a regular stop for me - both business and family dining.

Had dinner at Meet the Meat during NYC restaurant week and overall was a good experience. The location is in Astoria and a bit out of the way, but bus Q69 will take you right in front via the N/W subway station. Our appetizers, the meatballs with marinara and ricotta cheese and mussels in red sauce, were outstanding. The mains were ok - filet mignon was on the dry side, seems like it was kept on a warmer for awhile, and the NY Strip steak was very tough around the edges and too red in the middle. The tiramisu dessert was so so, while the chocolate mousse dessert was great. The maitre D was very nice and so was the dinner staff in general, but there was this one staff member who was very inpatient - I got my check before I even finished dessert, and he basically just throw my leftovers in a box so the mousse cake was pretty much smashed. Overall a decent first time experience but unless I am in the area not sure I will return any time soon.

Didn’t receive mash potatoes with meal. The side of vegetables was only three green beans. Steak was delicious but a little over cooked to what was asked. Service was excellent. Steaks were good size. Ambiance was great!

Went to meet the meats to celebrate my mother’s birthday. The place was amazing. Service was outstanding and the waiter was very friendly. All the staff was attentive and superb. The food and ambiance was phenomenal. It was not noisy, and could have a conversation with my family. I definitely recommend this place and would go back.

Adnan and his attentive staff always go the extra distance to make our meal enjoyable. There is no reason to go to one of the better known (and more expensive) steakhouses in Manhattan, when Meet the Meat is right on a par with all of them.

Service was spectacular. Ordered a medium rare, got it right! My son ordered medium, it was more on a medium well. Grilled calamari was very good. Definitely I will be coming back here. Thanks.

I have been here a few times and each time I really think it's the best steak I have ever had. I STRONGLY recommend the scallops as well. Perfectly cooked.

I brought my family here for Father's Day. We like to try new steakhouses and the food here was delicious. We ordered oysters, shrimp cocktail, caesar salad, the burger and fries for my son (he loved it), beef medallions with mashed potatoes and mushrooms in bordelaise sauce, and the rib eye with a side of sauteed spinach and mushroom mac and cheese. I loved it all and we even had dessert (tiramisu) though we could barely move. It's not Del Frisco's (which is more upscale) or other steakhouses that are more creative about their menu, but we didn't need that. We needed a nice restaurant with good food and good service and we definitely got that. It's also a nice trip to Astoria vs. the city. I have already recommended it to people I know and can't wait to have a reason to go back!

The steaks melt in your mouth.....this is a real steakhouse. I ate off my husband plate because I ordered the chicken parmigiana and it was ok but I couldn't stop cutting piece after piece of his steak.

It’s like going home! The staff always gives us a warm welcome. The steak was simply outstanding. The sides are the right portions and are delicious. My favorite restaurant in Queens.
