One major issue, I would think the manager would know that leaving a door open in the middle of winter does not make for an enjoyable meal. Cold air blowing on my table did not make the evening pleasant. To add to the issue other costumers were using what looked to be a service entrance to go out the main restaurant, by holding the door open for long periods of time with no concerns of other diners

We sat outside in a tent, but saw the inside dining room is gorgeous. They made the tent special and cozy. The food was good, service was attentive and top-notch. We really enjoyed the experience.

We were told when we called during the day that they could make a hamburger from the lunch menu for our 8 year old. When we arrived to an empty restaurant they then told us they could not make a hamburger. We left and had a fine dinner at The Smith

Just a couple of vegan options, not many vegetarian ones either. The vegan entree was a bit overpriced considering the portion size, and vs. the price for a steak, for example. The ambiance would have been much more appreciated, if we wouldn’t be seated right by the door that was used by staff non-stop to serve outdoor tables. It was freezing. The Manager recognized it and offered the round of drinks just for one table, and we were ignored. Also, the restaurant wasn’t fully packed, i.e. there were other tables available to be seated somewhere else.

I've had two perfect steaks in my life, this was one of them. Our server told us the filets were amazing... and they were. Wine recommendations were also spot on.

This was our first time at Quality Bistro and it did not disappoint! The ambiance was beautiful and romantic, while still lively and fun. We had a reservation, but as they prepared our table we were able to sit at the bar and order the Bistro Spritz which was delicious. Then after being served our food we could not stop raving about how good it was. The portion sizes were just the right amount and the QUALITY was undeniable. Would definitely recommend & will definitely be coming back!

We absolutely love Quality Bistro! What a beautiful restaurant with warm and friendly service and delicious food. Bar far, the best French Onion Soup anywhere!!!!
If you aren’t ready to dine indoors yet definitely check
out their outdoor “cabins” they are truly lovely.

Our server was lovely and took great care of us. The food was amazing - the french onion soup was delicious! I did feel bad for our server as he had a wretched couple next to us and wanted to give him props for how he handled it because the surrounding tables could not believe it. We told him he was a great server and hoped that they did not ruin his day. He was very gracious and thanked us again. So, I guess I wanted to use this review to highlight the restaurant and as a reminder to guests that servers are trying their best during all this change, be kind to them especially during the holiday season! I truly cannot wait to return!

All the food LOOKED amazing.

Crab cake was diminished as it arrived at table barely warm, and I’m someone who likes my food less hot.

Was as if the crab cake had been cooked, and then cooled to room temp before being served.

Branzino and fries were delicious, as was pistachio creme brûlée!

Wait staff was attentive and friendly.

For prices charged, you expect all to be excellent and on point every time.

I rarely write reviews. I am so offended by the restaurant's wine list that I would urge anyone who expects to be enjoy a reasonably priced bottle of wine with dinner not to go. The lowest cost bottle of wine was $90. The food was good but nothing to rave about. The service was excellent and the ambience lovely.

We went to celebrate my fiancés birthday. We reserved one of the outside booths which were quaint and heated. Edmar and the rest of the staff did a great job, from making us feel welcome, knowledge of the menu, and providing great suggestions as to what to eat. The food was delicious. We look forward to going back, definitely with the experience!

The food was wonderful. We enjoyed the steak tartare, escargot, and tuna carpaccio. The escargot was nice and the other two items were outstanding. We even ordered a second steak tartare. The service was perfect. Our gentleman was attentive but not overbearing.
