We came up from Washington, DC to catch up with my siblings and their spouses in NY area now that we’ve all been vaccinated. We have been to Quality Eats before (and loved it) and decided to give Quality Bistro a try. It exceeded our expectations! Setting is beautiful and extended outdoor seating for COVID is fantastic. Everyone raved about their meal and the wine list and service were exceptional.

We will definitely be back!

In these early days of COVID recovery in midtown, it was just nice to be able to enjoy a nice lunch at a restaurant. The fact that the food at QBistro is excellent was a wonderful addition. And, given staff shortages, our waitress went way beyond the call of hospitality duty. The crab cake is delicious and we tried both the creme brulee and chocolate mousse - well worth saving room for.

First of all, this may be the most beautiful dining room in NYC. Nothing short of stunning. My salad, branzino with mashed potatoes and opera cake were all outstanding. The service was also excellent. Should be called High Quality Bistro. I can't wait to go back.

We love the space and the entire Quality Branded family of restaurants. We went to Quality Bistro for Mother’s Day and it was fabulous (as expected)- lively and delish. We love the staff and our server. They made the evening truly special and memorable.

Food was excellent, service was a little slow towards the end. Little disappointed that their popular dessert (Ile Flottante) was sold out by 3pm which sounds a bit early to me. I would come back again :)

This is our second time dining here in the past week and a half. We tried the filet mignon chicken and the pork. The Cesar salad and bib salad were also winners. In addition the corn brûlée. Everything was delicious including the desserts.

I celebrated Mother's day with my wife and two older children. We sat in one of the outdoor cabins which has lighting, heat, and music. Besides the awesome ambiance, the service and food was even better. We have been to both Quality Italian and Quality Meats and we like all of them, but I have to say Quality Bistro might be our favorite

We had a great meal at Quality Bistro. The food was great and the service was outstanding. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We were especially impressed by how well organized they considering it was Mother’s Day which if often a tough and busy day for restaurants.
The food was great. The oyster crudités bouquet was a fabulous presentation. We also enjoyed the Moroccan fried chicken and the French onion soup.
We plan to return to this restaurant.

The manager at Bistro I believe it’s Ahmed ( worked for Daniel ) note years ago I worked for the Stillmans . Everything was great then when my main came instead of MR it came WD. He spotted as he said my quizzical look from across the dining room . Came over and asked what was wrong ? I was impressed he had observed. Looked at steak and said let me get another. I as a restaurant guy probably would have eaten it and said nothing. Spas not to be one of those. Instead I met a manager so rare today who keeps his eyes open. Well done on the hire gents. We will be back. If I could I would hire him in a heartbeat.

Edmar was FANTASTIC. VERY HOSPITABLE, very considerate and friendly. Busy day on a Saturday night but he handled everything well and he was courteous while being attentive and understanding. Def recommend coming here and if possible work with Edmar. Food was great and although it was busy a great time overall.

Another Quality experience at this newest addition to the Quality lineup. From the cocktails to the ambiance and the food…all fantastic! Best steaks + frites. Delicious crab cake and super tasty tuna carpaccio. Superb branzino and great sides. We had a truly Quality time and already booked a repeat performance!

I never write reviews. This experience here was so bad I feel compelled to leave one. From the moment we arrived to the rude receptionist we were put off. We asked how long the wait would be for our reservation. He told me he had no idea of the time and to go to the bar.

Then we finally sit down and the waitress was not interested in our table at all. We sat for close to an hour before any food arrived. We had to beg for bread form at lest two other waiters.

The food was one of the biggest disappointments ever from any Quality Restaurant. I ordered the aged fillet medium rare. It came to me like an old rubber shoe.

Just a pathetic evening by an establishment that is not ready to be open.

Good food. High prices. Great ambience. It feels really good to be in there. Good for dates. The corn brûlée is really good. The Moroccan chicken tasty, well cooked, but I expected A little more intensity on the seasoning. A really good piece of meat for the strip in the steak frites. Onion soup is great, but filling. I’ll definitely return.

Beautiful place, excellent service. Nice wines. The only problem is the wrong charge - we ordered fixed price 3 curse dinner, eventually have been charged all separately with total amount much higher than if as we requested, were charged the 85$ per person 3 course dinner. Since it was the anniversary and i didn't want to get into arguments with the personnel, i just paid what they charged. But it was not nice.

This meal was so good that I ate it at a glacial pace because I didn’t want it to end. Filet mignon that was served with onions and blue cheese filled croissants, was divine!! Also had the corn creme brûlée and green beans. The restaurant and outdoor space are very elegant and the staff is amazing! I will definitely be back!!

Our waiter was outstanding. This "playful" take on French bistro food left us with several questions about the menu. He helped us through all of the,. His recommendations were excellent. The sommelier was stretched pretty thin because it was busy.

Awesome outdoor cabins! So charming. The butter appetizer is amazing. The staff were very flexible with our disorganized group. The only thing I would have appreciated would have been more active refilling of our water.
