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).
food is very good, service is polite and sometimes slow.
ambience very nice and comfortable.
Food was very good, service was slow, outside area is not well heated. If you go when it is cold, sit inside.
From the hostesses to the bartender to the server- everyone was phenomenal. Very friendly and accommodating. The food was absolutely to die for!
Fantastic atmosphere and fantastic food. Great first night in New York.
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
Everything was excellent!
Great experience prior to going to Wicked. Asked us our schedule and got us out on time. Really nice environment, outstanding food and service. French onion, amazing
Do not recommend
A new beautiful Quality restaurant.. great food and service, good cocktails, and nice French Bistro vibe in midtown.
We had burgers, salads and chicken… all good.
The French onion soup was also outstanding!! A welcome addition to lunching in midtown Manhattan.
Seriously, Some of the best pomme frites in NYC! The food and service were a cut above. Will definitely dine there again when in Midtown Manhattan.
Great experience and will be back. Everything was perfect. Thanks!
We sat in an outside booth so we could have our Yorkie with us. As always, the food was perfect, the staff was wonderful and fun, the ambiance was magical. We love this restaurant.
Wonderful meal. Try the grilled Branzino.
We sat in an outdoor booth, which I was concerned would be cold. But was perfect and well heated. The food was delicious and the service was equally wonderful. We had a great evening
Very good food and service.
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.
The food as well as the cocktails were delicious. We went on Thanksgiving and the service was impeccable!
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.
Thanksgiving meal with our exchange student from Spain and her friend who is also from Spain! Food was good and we loved our own little area outside to eat.
Just fantastic all around.
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.
It was a good choice for celebrating my partner’s birthday. The service was great and the food as well…
Thanks giving lunch. It was busy and the service was slow.
Spectacular evening! Dinner was delicious...every single course!! Service was perfection. The atmosphere was festive and fun. A+ all-around!
Good was delicious, services was great and loved their outdoor dining 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
Short rib was all fat
Sat in an outside booth. Was 49 degrees outside and still had a cozy meal inside one of the outside booths.
Waiter was a delight, food was great
It was a little too cold for the cabin but great food and excellent service
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.
This is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan. We found it by accident and went back in the same week.
Juan miguel wins the Best Waiter Ever award!! He kept is entertained and made my niece’s 10th bday a memory that will last a lifetime. Thank you!
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!
Would give it more Stars if I could. Fantastic start to finish.
Service was great. The food was just ok for how much it costs. The chicken dish I had was overly greasy.
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.
