Steak was delicious! Excellent service. Would highly recommend for special occasions.
We've been coming to MtM for years. They treat us like family. They even remember what our drinks of choice are, and have them waiting for us when we get there. The steaks are always impeccable, and their smoked salmon appetizer is a favorite. Thank you, Adnan and staff, for always providing a perfect dining experience.
Excellent food, service, great and memorable meal
Meet the Meat is a family-owned and -operated restaurant, and when you dine here, you feel like part of the family. Part of our party arrived quite early for our reservation, and we were all greeted warmly and seated right away. The service here is impeccable and friendly, and we had a wonderful celebratory dinner (and dessert!). Thank you Adnan and family for celebrating another wonderful occasion with us!
Was amazing they really take care of us drink and food are fabulous, the whole stuff are súper friendly, specially Paco our waiter he’s friendly and concerned to make our experience very happy.
The manager as well come often and check over, food was so fresh and tasty! If you are in Astoria you better stop by here
It was my 2nd time visiting the restaurant & the sirloin was even better than the 1st time. Really good food all around
A little out of the way but we make the trip to experience great food and excellent service. Bone in rib-eye was our choice this time however I recommended any of the streaks at this Astoria steakhouse that belongs in NYC. Check out the menu, the prices are very reasonable for a top steakhouse.
This is one of my go to steakhouses close to home that never disappoints and the service by our server Paco is first rate. I made reservations for 7 and everyone enjoyed themselves and even took leftovers home. You won’t be disappointed!!!
Food and service was great
We had our anniversary dinner here and we couldn't think of a better place than Meet the meat. Everything was outstanding from the moment we got in till the moment we left. Food was amazing we had grilled calamari, tomatoes and onions salad, porterhouse for 2 with hashbrown potatoes and mushrooms in bordelaise sauce. The owner was extremely nice and gave us a round of prosseco
Thank you Meet the Meat for making our date night an extraordinary experience
Great experience overall! The food was delicious and the staff members were friendly and efficient. We will definitely return.
We always have a great time!
Check out the google reviews. All accurate. Would go back.
The place was
nice. The wedge salad was not good. It was just
lettuce and the house dressing had mustard in it. The steaks were dilish and our waiter and waitress were perfect. No corn on the menu
and the servings were enough for 2 even though
and they said they were for one
Service was quick and attentive. Dishes were removed quickly. Our food was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We both enjoyed the food and were pleased with the dessert options. Only concern was that one of the lights above us was flickering intermittently, but it wasn't a big deal.
We enjoyed a lovely Restaurant Week dinner. Three of us had steak which was superior to the mini lamb chops. The sides were generous and tasty. The two cocktails that were ordered were well made.
The food & service were very good. Can’t wait to go again
THE STEAK WAS PERFECTLY DONE AND THE SERVICE WAS TOP NOTCH
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal from the Octopus, Salmon and Filet to the desserts
It was good, the meat was outstanding, everything else was okay
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!

Cant go wrong
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!
