The food is out of this world!! Best steak and dining experience I’ve had in Queens. It really is a hidden gem!!
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!
It was very awkward, quiet and the staff could have been friendlier.
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.
My favorite place!!!
Delicious steak and wonderful service.
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.
Quality Service, the best steak in the area, great wine-selection and bartender makes a perfect martini. Who could ask for anymore? Thank you.
This place is always solid! Food is outstanding, workers are aleays pleasant and you dont have to wait for a great steak!
Fun time out with great food and drinks.
I really enjoyed the food. I thought the steak was tender and delicious. I would go back. However, it is a pricey dinner!!
Amazing food & atmosphere. We were served by the owner who went out of his way to take care of us and ensure we had a great experience. We will be back!
All the steaks are great, but you're missing out if you skip tje grilled octopus appetizer.
Absolutely incredible experience! Food was delicious, service was outstanding. Been there twice and same exact experience both times. Highly recommend, 10/10!
Food was delish, the meat was cooked to perfection and very tasty. Great atmosphere and very nice service.
Everything was Immaculate. The NY Strip was superb. The decor was simple but still very nice. The staff was very friendly. Would definitely go back.
The food and service was excellent. We will absolutely be going back.
Had to come back for the amazing service and food - still the best out there!
The service and food were excellent. I would definitely recommend going again.
Food was DELICIOUS; drinks were on point. The steaks were so good that my brother ordered a second one! Everyone made sure we had everything we needed and was in general the best!
Delicious medallions !
We had the porterhouse for 2. Wonderful. The asparagus could of had a little bit more salt. We had the strip of bacon and seared scallops. Delicious. The walnut pecan pie...omg. The service was great. Attentive and friendly. We are adding this to our go to restaurants.
Excellent service, staff was great! Food was amazing, we had a party of 8, and everyone ordered something different, everyone loved their food!
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.
Great food, great staff, a cozy and enjoyable experience all around ;)
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!
Great food, service and location. Worth every penny!
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.
As always Meet the Meat was fantastic. We brought friends for their first time and they loved it. Everyone will definitely be 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.
Wonderful dining experience as always at Meet The Meat
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.
Best porterhouse for 2 that I have eaten in a very long time. HIghly recommended.
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.
After Googling "Best Steakhouses in Astoria", Meet the Meat came up. My husband and I were in Astoria watching a sporting event, and weren't exactly dressed to impress. However, we were welcomed with open arms. The staff was so nice and accommodating. And the food?? OMG, the food. Large portions, for a terrific price. I got the Petit Filet, my husband, the bone-in porterhouse. Grilled to perfection. So delicious. Oh, and I am STILL raving about the creamed spinach. SO smooth, it was like eating yogurt! We will def be back ASAP, and we have already told anyone who would listen how great this restaurant was! Do yourself a favor, and EAT THERE NOW!
The owner was very nice and greeted us immediately. I mentioned we had a stroller and baby so he gave us a perfect table. The food was excellent, the wait staff service was mediocre. I had to question the waiter if there was a tomahawk available because I saw it online. He said of course, it is excellent. If I did not questioned, he would not have told us about it. Lastly, to my disappointment. I informed them about my husband's birthday during the reservation. There was no birthday dessert or mention of his birthday. I just left it and decided to go elsewhere for dessert.
