    We made reservations to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from Pratt Institute and it did not disappoint! Everything was wonderful from cocktails to entrees and dessert. The cinnamon brioche toast is not to be missed! We sat outside in one of the covered cabanas and it was a beautiful so that was lovely. I would love to go back and dine inside because the decor inside is so beautiful. The service was attentive but allowed us to have a slow, leisurely lunch to celebrate our graduate!

    We arrived an hour early for our reservation - our table was for 1:15. We asked if we could be seated early but was told that it would “be a moment.” We asked if that would take long and the hostess said “no, just a moment” and asked us to wait at the bar. That term may have been deliberately vague, but we did not think that meant an hour because it was a beautiful day and we could have waited outside or walked around while we waited. At 1:05, I told them we had been waiting a while and asked if we were going to be seated soon since we were told it would take “a moment” but were told by another host that they were “aiming for 1:15 because your reservation was for 1:15.” If we had known this earlier, we probably wouldn’t have waited that long or we would have at least had the expectation that we would be seated much longer than (what I think constitutes as) “a moment” by the way the other hostess implied. Of course, if it was very busy and we needed to wait our turn, we would have, since we showed up before our reservation. However it seemed like they were taking walk-ins before us and we would have much preferred if they were honest with us from the beginning that we would most likely have to wait for an hour before we got seated. Waiting at the bar and expecting to be seated “in a moment” when in fact it took an hour is very different and did affect our dining experience. I am a repeat customer, and ate there less than a week ago. I was disappointed with this service. We got lobster salads, crab cake, and rouge & blue. Lobster salad was good and filling and the crab cake was nice, I liked the rouge & blue but wish they had included that there was goat cheese in the dish on the menu. Didn’t take any pictures since we were starving due to the hour-long wait.

    Food was so so. Service from waiter was awful. Wine sommelier got my wine. Party of 3. The 2 ordered salads but were saving to eat with meal. I didn’t order salad but no food or follow for an hour and half. Finally got wine sommelier to refill our drinks and get our server. Finally ordered our food. Acted like it was our fault because the other 2 ordered salads. I have never say that long in a restaurant without at least an update or check in after ordering. My party was not important to the server at all. Would not go back or recommend. Too many better choices.

    The food was God awful. I have eaten at top restaurants around the world and this was not good esp at this price. Pork chop was tough and tasteless. Crab cake was described by my fellow diner as “a McDonald’s fish filet with crab inside.” Server was great but man was the food bad. And I have an awful stomach ache today so I rather suspect the pork was bad.

    I was there with a very an eater that is incredibly sensitive to food texture (a teenager). There is a burger on their lunch menu but it’s up to the discretion of the chef whether or not they will make a burger during dinner. They refused to make a burger, even though it was the only thing the teenager could eat. She ended up having the chicken and it was alright but the service left a lot to be desired. I ordered French onion soup as an appetizer and it never showed up. They never asked if we wanted dessert. Overall the foot was yummy but the service left a lot to be desired. I won’t be going back. And this gives me great pause about trying Quality Meats and Quality Italian, which is a shame.

    There were 4 us and everyone thought the food and wine was outstanding. I had the filet mignon au poivre which was absolutely delicious . My wife and I shared the Bibb lettuce with avocado salad and we both were impressed. The dessert was apple tart with cinnamon and quite tasty. My wife had a chicken dish and our friends, lobster, both of which I was told were prepared perfectly. The portions were generous. We ate in the “Shed” outside which was surprisingly comfortable and quiet and intimate. The restaurant has a great location in the Theater District near Carnegie Hall and is on the opposite side of street from City Center. Two thumbs up !!!

    Lovely setting . Definitely giving the French brasserie feel. Bar area is underwhelming, should be upgraded. Extensive wine list with great selection . Pricing is however very high potentially too high. Food menu is totally fitting, however I found the execution of food to not exactly at the expected level, some shortcuts here and there . Service was to the point, well done there.

    A dear friend and I went for a pre theater meal and it was perfect. Such a gorgeous space. Atmosphere. And service. The crab cake I had was one of the best I’ve ever had. And this is coming from someone who grew up on crab cakes from the eastern shore. The tables can be a bit tight for two tops. But over all it was really wonderful.

    The place is gorgeous. And very vibrant. The menu is decidedly French, and leans toward steak over fish. Some of the dishes - like the lobster toast and the French onion soup - were delicious. But some of the dishes - like the spicy Caesar or the Moroccan Chicken - were completely underwhelming. And no matter what you ordered - everything is entirely too rich and drenched in butter. We did not leave the restaurant feeling well. The service was attentive but clumsy. It was not a refined experience. If you are looking for heavy food, a vibrant and new environment and extremely pricy underwhelming food (expense accounts only) then QB may be for you.

    The steaks and first courses are superb, the main dining room is spacious and high-ceilinged, the smaller room looked nice too, the service is professional and the hostesses are charming and efficient. The prices are high, certainly, but not ridiculously so. For a festive evening, this is a steak house with a difference -- the French effects (a perfect and surprising foie gras spread with the beef tartare, for example) really work, and the escargots were good too. (Avoid the crab cake, however--it isn't French, it isn't American, and it isn't good.). We were delighted with the (complimentary) sample, a very large sample, of their delicious chocolate mousse. It's a rich yet light treat.

    While all the food was superb, we were very disappointed with the experience. The curtains to the cabin blew around through the meal making the temperature uncomfortable (variable) and very distracting. We requested a solution several times and responses were dismissive and no solution was provided. Separate from the cabin issue, the accessible restroom is next to the very busy kitchen entrance and staff was inconsiderate regarding elderly patron in our party needing access telling her she should watch where she’s going. Lastly while our waiters were pleasant, having three waiters between being seated and ordering entrees was confusing and resulted in a delayed ordering. Thank goodness the food shines because otherwise this would have been a very poor experience.

    This was my second visit and it was fantastic. Service started off a little shaky (one of the servers helping us) but they absolutely redeemed themselves. Sadly, my favorite dish was removed from the menu (lobster and frites). The server suggested the lobster toast which was delicious!!
