    Seafood tower was amazing, same with the cacio Pepe & drinks. Steak was very chewy unfortunately and service was mediocre but the atmosphere was stunning.

    Good and service were excellent. However we were 5 people and were seated at a round table which was extremely tight. The hostess was very rude when we voiced our concerns about the table.

    We came for my mother's birthday right before heading to City Center for a show. From the time we stepped in, the hospitality was top tier making us all feel welcomed. Our server Jesus was THE BEST! He recommended his favorites and was spot on. He knew it was my mother's birthday and time was moving so quick, we were able to enjoy our 3 course meal and had enough time to have dessert, sing happy birthday, pay the bill and make it to our show across the street on time. It was the perfect! I will always make time to do food and drinks at QB before a show at City Center.

    During our check in with the hostess, she didn’t even raise her head to look at us when we spoke with her. After we sit down at our table, the waitress did a full run of the menu then we got left there without water until the sommelier came to take our wine orders. After three butter service, some server came to ask if we would like clean plates and our waitress shouted to him not change change plates for us. We did ask them to give us clean plates. However this triggers the waitress’ frustration as she nearly threw the clean plates to each one of us (we were table of 5). The food in general was good but the services were not inline with the price or the reputation.

    First time at QB and wow. Service was outstanding, its clearly a focus area of the restaurant and it showed from the moment we arrived. We were taken care of throughout the dinner with the highest level of detail. Overall the food was spectacular, from the escargot to the French onion soup and the Nutella cake to top it all off. Perfect for pre-theater or a night out.

    Although the ambience and restaurant itself os very nice looking (especially for the outside), the overall experience I would say was super average. The wait was 20 minutes past reservation time, despite us making the reservation early. The food was seasonless and very bland. The fries were good at least. Overall will not be coming back, the tiktoks were not worth the trip.

    There was precious little negative to say. A little loud, and getting to the washrooms was a little bit of a labyrinth, but we intend to go back. Prices make it more of a special occqasion place, but there you have it. Go. Food, wine cocktails, all first rate.

    One of the best meals in a very long time. Our service was impeccable - everything from the food to the atmosphere created by the staff was top-notch. A short wait past our reservation time yielded the cutest little coupes of champagne one has ever seen being presented complimentary. This restaurant really knows how to take care of you! Everyone from the host staff to the waiters and their assistants work so well together.

    Its a beautiful space and service was friendly and attentive. Food was average though. We had a lobster toast special that was nice, but our French Onion Soup was middle of the road, needing a bit of sherry perhaps for a little more depth of flavor. Solid but not wow. The real let down was the spicy Caesar that had no kick at all, no umami. I could taste absolutely no anchovy, or garlic or egg. It was basically lettuce, cheese and a squeeze of lemon with a cream base. How it was being marketed as spicy was beyond me, unless the chef is a 90 year old midwesterner who trained on Carnival Cruise lines. While dining I kept looking at the illuminated signs in the restaurant that say 'Comme ci, comme ca' and thinking. "Well, there at least is some truth in advertising."

    We arrived at QB, and got seated right away, there was a wait on taking the order or being greeted at the table. (maybe the server (O) was confused if we were assigned to his section, or busy). However, great recovery, we got our food, and we were treated great, the rest of our experience was friendly and great! Ed, gets hospitality and took care of the situation and guided a great service with the server, we were surprised at such generosity in the end (Leaving a generous token of appreciation as well), I appreciate the intention and kindness, being industry the amount of work we put out there is a lot, so that was wholesome, they set a great standard, hospitality is meaningful, I was very thankful, Ed gets it, the details were great! We are thankful for the meal and experience! Highly recommend it for a nice lunch in the city, quiet and intimate for Sunday. Thank You!

    Quality Bistro is an amazing experience. The quality of the food is top of the line. It is expensive but the food quality and service do not disappoint. I made reservations for 7 pm. They could not seat us for almost 20 minutes but the hostess provided us with a glass of champagne due to our wait. Overall is was a wonderful experience.

    My first experience at quality bistro was very good. We started with the Caesar salad…It had no croutons, but other than that, flavor was good. Scallop dish. Scallops were seared perfectly cooked perfectly nice fresh garden peas. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly..good sear, the nine dollar au poivre presentation is a must with any steak, sides, or exceptional. The brussel sprouts were a little too chard and a great experience…thoroughly enjoyed it.
