Beautiful space. Waiter often went missing. Food (steak frites) came 3 mins after ordering (and thus wasn’t cooked to order - a crime when it cost $49). Steak was over cooked (ordered rare, came medium).

One major issue, I would think the manager would know that leaving a door open in the middle of winter does not make for an enjoyable meal. Cold air blowing on my table did not make the evening pleasant. To add to the issue other costumers were using what looked to be a service entrance to go out the main restaurant, by holding the door open for long periods of time with no concerns of other diners

Food and drinks were served at vastly different times. Although we told waiter we need to be out by 7:30 for theater our food was not out on time. We left all the sides untouched and a welldone steak that went back because it was supposed to be medium rare. Convinced he brought the same steak back, just more charbroiled.

Wonderful location with smart decor and open feel. The bar is smallish, but the seats are comfortable and the staff is magnificent. To start, crab cakes, oh yeah. Delish.
We went for Thanksgiving dinner and we had the traditional plate with turkey, gravy and stuffing. Wonderful. Our sons had steaks that were very appetizing and delicious. If you like chocolate, save room for the Opera cake, OMG. Karla and Jasmine were wonderful. They were on point, caring and made you feel like if you were home for the holidays. Thank you everyone for a wonderful family experience. We cannot wait to go back.

We sat outside in a tent, but saw the inside dining room is gorgeous. They made the tent special and cozy. The food was good, service was attentive and top-notch. We really enjoyed the experience.

We were told when we called during the day that they could make a hamburger from the lunch menu for our 8 year old. When we arrived to an empty restaurant they then told us they could not make a hamburger. We left and had a fine dinner at The Smith

Just a couple of vegan options, not many vegetarian ones either. The vegan entree was a bit overpriced considering the portion size, and vs. the price for a steak, for example. The ambiance would have been much more appreciated, if we wouldn’t be seated right by the door that was used by staff non-stop to serve outdoor tables. It was freezing. The Manager recognized it and offered the round of drinks just for one table, and we were ignored. Also, the restaurant wasn’t fully packed, i.e. there were other tables available to be seated somewhere else.

I've had two perfect steaks in my life, this was one of them. Our server told us the filets were amazing... and they were. Wine recommendations were also spot on.

This was our first time at Quality Bistro and it did not disappoint! The ambiance was beautiful and romantic, while still lively and fun. We had a reservation, but as they prepared our table we were able to sit at the bar and order the Bistro Spritz which was delicious. Then after being served our food we could not stop raving about how good it was. The portion sizes were just the right amount and the QUALITY was undeniable. Would definitely recommend & will definitely be coming back!

We absolutely love Quality Bistro! What a beautiful restaurant with warm and friendly service and delicious food. Bar far, the best French Onion Soup anywhere!!!!
If you aren’t ready to dine indoors yet definitely check
out their outdoor “cabins” they are truly lovely.
