    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.

    Butter service was delicious as were most of the apps. The steaks however were overcooked. Sent back one meant to be MR that arrived Well only to receive a MW as a replacement. Too dry for companion to eat but felt back sending back again since everyone else had finished.

    Fantastic food, including but not limited to the bread service garni, which could have been a meal in itself. Nice large and delicious cocktails too. Would return for a pre-theater meal of bread service and cocktails alone!

    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.

    We used one of the heated outdoor booths, which was a nice experience. Initially they were all booked, but they told me they would let me know if there was availability, and Anna followed through. The food and service were good, the menu interesting, and the setting was perfect

    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.

    Beautiful location but really crowded. We had to send the chicken back twice as it was raw. Seems like they weren't prepared in the front of house or the back of house for such a large crowd on MD.

    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!!

    From the beginning of our meal the hostess made it clear that she did not care about our experience. She was rude and treated us like an inconvenience. Our waiter did the best he could to provide service, but the food arrived cold after waiting literally in the rain to be served to us.

    Delicious food, though, pricey. You get what you pay for. Great for special occasions and for group dinners. They have a nice outdoor seating area, large enough to accommodate large groups and everything we ordered from appetizers to desserts was outstanding. The butter service was an experience in itself and the lobster toast, shrimp cocktail, escargots and crab cakes were all on point. The steaks and brqnzino were beautifully done and the chocolate mousse simply melts in your mouth! My whole group was thoroughly impressed.
