NY Strip Steak
Ny Prime Sirloin cut served with onions, bell peppers and bordelaise sauce
We had a very good experience from start to finish. The host was very welcoming and the food was definitely delicious. We’ll definitely be coming back here for sure.
Food was excellent modestly priced
My guest and I were able to conduct out business without any interruptions
Wonderful. The people were amazing. The steak was amazing. Worth the price
If you're in the mood for a good steak, Meet the Meat is the place to go! The desserts are also really good -Tartufo & Chocolate Mousse Cake. Great quiet date night spot. Definitely a hidden gem
Never disappoints. Adnan and his staff make you feel like family. Have been with my wife and children and with friends, and the experience is always tremendous.
The food was amazing. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The service was spot on. Very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back!

Finding Parking may be an issue
Excellent porterhouse! Drinks not watered down. Excellent service.
I had eaten here years ago. I was not thrilled then either. I read the reviews and they were stellar. I figured they fixed their game. Boy, was I wrong. The service was slow even with only 2 tables occupied counting mine. They are noted for steak yet they are not skilled at delivering a sizzling hot steak cooked to exacting temperatures. My wife had to send her steak back twice; yes, twice to get it right. Go figure. The sides were horrendous and the ice cream was not creamy. They charged top dollar but provided terrible value for the cost. I will NEVER go back and I recommend that others considering the place that they should seriously reconsider. There are other better known, reliable steakhouses in NYC that will satisfy you. Meet the Meat should change their name to, Beat the Customer.
Took my family here for Mother's Day. Everything about this place exceeded our expectations. Steak was excellent, wine, appetizers, excellent. I personally appreciate that this place is off the "beaten path", which was perfect for Mother's Day. Even though it was a busy day service was perfect.
Took my husband here for his birthday with our children and we Loved it here ! Paco, our waiter was super attentive, the gentleman who I think owns the place was also very nice even made nice with my kids (plus), the food was delicious and the ambiance was great. The portions are huge, I’d suggest to be mindful when ordering. we had three apps and the porterhouse steak for two w three sides it was entirely too much food but nevertheless delicious. Totally recommend
Really excellent steakhouse, don't let the location and casual name fool you! The owner Adnan makes everyone feel like a VIP, especially on special occasions, and our waiter Paco and the rest of the team were splendid as well.
Had the amazing Porterhouse for 2, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts for sides, jumbo shrimp cocktail appetizer, a bottle of Prisoner cabernet, and split the tiramisu...which was probably the best I can remember having.
It's right up there or better than the bigger name steakhouses in Manhattan or Brooklyn, certainly worth the visit.
I have enjoyed dining with friends at Meet the Meat several times, and each time it has been a delightful experience! The food, drinks, service and cleanliness are all consistently very good! The Owner and his family are very friendly and accommodating! We've tried almost everything on the menu, and it's all delicious! Favorite apps are oysters, octopus and meatballs, and for dinner the Medallion of Beef! And you must have the Mushroom Mac & Cheese (we always take one home too!). The Tiramisu is homemade, and the best I've ever had! Happy dining! We'll be back again soon!
Great place for a Steak dinner in Astoria. Porter house for three is excellent & that's coming from a Ribeye lover.
Every time we bring a new guest to MtM, they are struck by just how much better it is when compared to the more well-known, touristy steakhouses of metro NY. Adnan and his team never disappoint with impeccable service, and the steaks are the best you will find anywhere. Thank you!
Absolutely perfect , when we first walked in we were pleasantly greeted , service was amazing ; and food was to die for , very few places understand what medium rare is but they hit the nail on the head. Would highly recommend this place!!!
We have been coming to MtM for years, and it was comforting to see the restaurant back to 50% capacity. This time we brought a guest, who is no stranger to the more "well-known" steakhouses in Manhattan and Brooklyn. He was emphatic that the porterhouse at MtM was better than any he has had, and that the impeccable service and low key atmosphere made for a far better experience. Thank you, as always, to Adnan and his team, for a wonderful dining experience.
Very accommodating and provided great service! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very pleasing.
Excellent service, only complaint is that the mac n cheese is trash. Don't order it
Service is incredible, great ambiance and great food. Steakhouse quality without being old school and stuffy
Awesome experience. Great service and food.
Great food. Great service. We love coming here for our special occasion.
Came here for my husband’s birthday with his group of friends. The outdoor seating was very spacious and made us feel really comfortable. The waiter was nice and recommended some great dishes. Food was great. Would definitely come back again.
Elevates your hospitality and culinary staycation to the stars. This team, the food and drink offerings and patio is five star all the way.
Adnan took very good care of us and the whole staff was amazing! Cant wait to revisit!
Even during these Covid times, dining outside in their courtyard was very comfortable and inviting. Drinks, appetizers and food were delicious. Service and staff were spot on. Always an enjoyable family evening.
Never ever disappoints. Always a great night out. Thank you!
My favorite place!
Amazing food very friendly service we had dinner there on the 7th. We left happy and full and still wanting more
What a wonderful meal and evening!!!
Service (especially during this crazy COVID time) was exceptional!
We loved the food and deserts
The team here wrote the book on five star hospitality. Very happy to be a frequent guest for years. It’s always great.
Wonderful steak, attentive service, and great value.
For a pandemic dining experience MTM did a very nice job. The food was great & the service was attentive. Of course we'd rather have dined inside and there were little things that were a little off but overall very good.
Will definitely go back.
Will preface that this is a couple of weeks after COVID outdoor dining was allowed. Came here for my wedding anniversary. Got the bacon appetizer which was uneven in thickness causing some parts to be burnt, had the skin which was inedibly tough, and not anything special flavorwise. Got the caprisi salad, which had mealy mozzarella, ok tomatoes, and dressing to pour on yourself. Ordered the ribeyes medium rare, came medium well, steak was a little salty, and asked the waiter about the doneness but he told me to check the middle which i showed wasn't med rare either. Creamed spinach was really good, mac and cheese with mushroom so-so. Definitely not worth the prices. This is an imitator compared to Christos which is also in the neighborhood.
