    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.

    Food was good, not outstanding, but marred by the noise that surrounded us. The (pricey) Dover sole isn’t as fresh or good as it is at competing neighborhood restaurants. A bread basket with crudités is startlingly expensive, even in 2022. The restaurant has a corporate feel, from the menu and service, to its clientele. There are better places for this price in midtown.

    I would have loved to have given QB an outstanding review across the board but I can't. 8 months ago, my wife and I dined at QB and we both had an outstanding meal. Our respective steak frites and large strip were perfectly prepared, delicious and really the best tasting grilled steaks we had ever eaten at a restaurant. We were literally chomping at the bit to get back for encore servings of those two steaks. We brought our children and grandchildren to New York to join us and share in the QB experience. I booked a table in one of the 8 or 9 "cabins" that have been fabricated and sit apart from the restaurant curbside dining area in the lane of traffic on East 55th Street closest to the restaurant. We were celebrating a 52nd wedding anniversary and it seemed fitting that we have a more private dining venue. That turned out to be an impediment to getting attentive service from our very professional server. It seems that the servers are assigned one cabin along with their regular tables that are across the street on the sidewalk. The server rarely got back to us-sort of out of sight out of mind. That goes for the assistant responsible for keeping our water glasses full. Management should either assign one waiter to the cabins so that is the focus of his/her attention, rather than the cabin being less of a priority. The 2 children ordered escargot and branzino respectively and both were superb according to the 14 and 11 year olds. The adults all ordered steaks. The ladies enjoyed perfectly cooked steak frites. I and my son-in-law ordered the more expensive dry-aged strip steaks. My son-in-law reported that his was perfectly prepared. Sadly my medium rare order arrived over cooked. It was returned after too long of a wait for our waiter who arrived only after I left the table to seek help in getting him to come over. The replacement arrived after everyone else had completely finished their meals. It was barely cooked, actually raw. Two strikes and I was out.
