Great experience but severely lacking vegetarian options - as I’m not 1. I get that it’s a steakhouse, but being vegetarian friendly is pretty much standard at NYC steakhouses.

The entire experience was absolutely wonderful from the hostess to the entire wait staff. The food was OUTSTANDING and I would definitely recommend Quality Bistro to anybody looking for an upscale yet unstuffy dining experience in midtown. The manager even stopped by the table a few times to greet us, which to me, is always impressive and professional. I will definitely be back again and this may actually be one of my new favourites!

In general the food was good. Sides in particular were tasty. Our party of 5 had 3 steaks, and of those 2 were overdone. The waiter’s response was just, “Sorry.” Also, waiter didn’t know what an Americano cocktail was and insisted that I was wrong about it. He finally said “Ok I will charge you for a Negroni but just leave out the gin,” which seemed like a strange way of dealing with this.

I had the most wonderful summer outdoor dining experience at Quality Bistro. The service was excellent, the wonderful outdoor seating and environment were amazing for a mid-town location, the cocktails were summer pretty and tasty - a bonus for the peacock tiki mug! - and overall it was a touch expensive for me, but worth every penny. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Birthday dinner. Love the Quality restaurants but this was a bust for me. Food was pretty underwhelming. Service was slow and somewhat sedated. Restaurant is beautiful and bar server Carla (sp?) was fantastic.

I would definitely consider Quality Bistro for a business or upscale casual meal. They have outdoor and indoor seating open now. We chose indoor to stay out of the heat. The food is "French bistro" style and generally tasty. I had a hamburger. It was a tad overcooked, the French onion soup was good. I would say the food was not incredible but fine. The decor inside is posh and the staff are very polite.

Cocktails, service, interior, was all great. Food was not very impressive. Our waiter recommended some fancy sounding appetizer- it was literally a 4x2 inch pepperoni pizza. I got the French onion burger which was good. My friends thought their chicken dish was meh. Slightly disappointed as the prices are pretty high for what I expected - also since I really like Quality Meats.

I can’t say enough good things about QB. I’ve gone here probably 15x this year and every time is better than the next. Miguel is the absolute best- and him and all the managers treat us like family every time we come. The food is amazing. The ambiance is stylish and sophisticated. The service is beyond impeccable. Do yourself a favor and go!

We were visiting NY for the week and had tried various restaurants far from our hotel. Upon walking into this one, someone's plate drew my attention. I immediately knew i wanted to eat here. They had great food, ambience and great service.

Phenomenal experience. Service was flawless and the food was delicious. The manager came over and "wanted to make sure everything was absolutely perfect". It absolutely was! Make sure you experience the "butter service". So so good. First NYC meal in a long time and this did not disappoint!!

Atmosphere is really nice and a great addition to the area.

I think that this place is beautiful. Different rooms and all are inviting. Service was great however ….well I have to mention this. While I do like recommendations, I do not respond well to being told that something is the best. Or the server likes this dish more then the others. Typically these were the MOST expensive selections…funny how that happens.
Food was good. Not fantastic although do order the corn brûlée. Fantastic take on the dessert but served as a side dish.
My friend and I don’t eat huge portions. So we choose the “bavette” cut. Translation - flank steak. Small piece but more then enough.
The server also suggested having it rare. This type of meat is chewy when not cooked to atleast medium to slightly well done. Sure enough was difficult to cut let alone chew.

Again. I did like this restaurant a lot. Would I return? Was over 100 a head. Worth it? Well the wine was for sure and the ambience was fantastic. Although we were rushed due to not ordering huge portions. Or so I believe. They do cater to a huge after work type groups.

Service after the meal was a little slow- turn around to bring check could have been improved.
