    We loved our experience and Quality Bistro. The service was awesome. They were very attentive to us. All of our meals were great. Oddly enough, the “wow” of the evening was the bread platter we ordered. It wasn’t the lobster one. They way they present it is pretty cool. Our meals were French onion soup, steak, salmon and branzino. We also had the gratin side and the pistachio crème brûlée. Everything was very good. The one thing I would say to anyone going here is, our directions said it was on 44th street. But it actually faces (and in fact uses a portion of) 45th street. All in all, a great experience.

    Quality Bistro is a great place to dine if you find yourself in midtown looking for a nice meal after work or when in the area on the weekend. Their outdoor seating is delightful when the weather is warm, but not too hot and their cabanas are great! Food-wise There seemed to be something for everyone on the menu, although vegans may have to make a meal out of starters and sides. We were pleased to find several natural wines available.

    It was a pleasant surprise to find a place like this. It is much more than what I expected. The food is amazing and excellent presentation. The service on point and quality was incredible. It is on the $$$ side but for a special occasion or if you wallet can take it, it is wonderful.

    Was frankly disappointed at the noise level as well as the seating (where we were placed) - - even though the place was not packed - - wanted to sit in one of those empty green cubicles but was told they were ‘taken’. So, dissatisfied, we cut our stay short, just having an appetizer and glass of wine. And yes, we told our waitress early on how we felt - - nothing - - - no one came to see if we might prefer sitting elsewhere- - place was NOT crowded either - - that’s Ok, plenty of places to dine in nyc & I guess the management was either never informed or didn’t have the time to care. Oh, we both had the Prawn Shrimp cocktail that we both enjoyed - - what turned us off could have been fixed too- - our 1st time there - - and our last. Happy you asked?

    I think the service can be improved, the waitress wasn't attentive enough. She forgot the drink but didn't charge us which was good. They were too quick to bring the check and take the food away.

    I wanted to like it. Made a reservation pre-theatre and was very much looking forward to dining, and meh. The server was lovely, but had way too many tables it took 20+ mins to get a drink. Total bummer that the food was mediocre at best. Too expensive to just be mediocre, side note great stemware and napkins. The attention to detail doesn't extend to the food.

    Gorgeous restaurant, mostly great food. Prices are off the wall, and for what they charge and the fact that their steaks are what they’re “known for”, it was appalling that a steak ordered medium rare first came out medium well (grey nearly all the way through, slight trace of pink if you squinted really hard), then a second attempt came out rare (red all the way through, no pink, cool in the center). We did not have time for a third attempt, so ate it undercooked; they apologized and took the steak off the bill, but there’s no excuse to miss the mark so dramatically *twice* when steaks are your specialty. I’m especially baffled by this since the waiter swore to the table next to us that the chef measures every steak for temperature, which seems impossible unless the chef isn’t pulling them before they reach final temp.

    My friend and I were late to our reservation and the staff at Quality Bistro were very kind and accommodating. Our server, Able was amazing and took great care of us. He got us in and out in time for our show on Broadway (even though we were limited on time). The food was fresh, flavorful and delicious! I got the steak frites and my friend got the braziano (fish) we shared the charred Brussels sprouts. Sooooo gooood highly recommend!!

    The experience felt grand which was wonderful. The food flavors were too strong, not enough nuance, subtly, balance. The spreads with the bread and butter course were too strong, not delicious enough. The tuna appetizer tasted strange. The Caesar salad was too sharp. The steak, fries, sunchoke gratin and chocolate mousse were all good. The booth cushion needs new stuffing and/or needs to be raised to meet the table height. We all felt we couldn’t reach the table and had to reach up to eat. Lovely evening, loved the design of the restaurant but wouldn’t rave about the food. The cost seemed much higher than the value but this would be a secondary issue. Thank you for the terrific service and making our evening special.

    Food was prepared well. French onion soup had some real depth of flavor and nice cheese and bread. Crab cake had lots of crab with almost no filler with a nice crunch crust. Spicy Caesar salad was fresh. Pork chop had a nice sauce although a tad too sweet. One of the things you will hear is almost none of the mains comes with a side. Now was the food good enough to command such prices? Not sure. If you want a side of frites they charge $16! Go for a special occasion or if you’re well off enough not to care about prices and want a nice location.
