Chicken was very dry and all shriveled up but then again it is lemon "charred" chicken. Didn't know what charred meant unfortunately. The waiter asked how everything was. I was honest and said chicken was dry. He comped us a drink and dessert. That is nice and all, it's just I hated my meal. We were even questioning if I got the leftover lunch chicken. Just because I thought it was dry, is that reason to go around giving me free dessert and drink?...I guess he was trying to be nice but that's very nice for someone who simply said it was dry! It's as if he knew they served me the lunch chicken as my date pointed out. Our reservation was st 6:45 PM. So I will always remember this place for a terrible meal unfortunately. The waiter was generous in the end but at the beginning of the meal, he was rushing us to order for whatever reason and I didn't like that either. He finally went away because we stood our ground! We ordered about 20 minutes after sitting. I am sure this place is excellent, it's just I had a bad experience.

Good for a large group. Food was good enough but nothing amazing. Service could've been more attentive for a group of 10 people. They've GOT to get that winter shield door for outside of entrance. It's freezing, and every time the door was opened (we were seated directly in front of it), we were overwhelmed with an Arctic blast! Unacceptable when ever little bodega has this already installed!

I reserved a table at Quality Eats Nomad for my boyfriend's birthday and we couldn't have been happier with the experience. The decor seemed very feminine with the pink neon lights and many sketch drawings and I was apprehensive of reserving a table, afraid that my boyfriend would not fit the targeted clientele. But I am so glad I did! The restaurant is not girly at all. It does well by balancing the feminine decor with robust and more "manly" types of foods, such as the Porterhouse Steak for two, which was accompanied by curly fries and a side salad. We also ordered the Grilled Octopus and everything tasted delicious. My boyfriend paired his meal with a glass of riesling, while I had the Crowd Pleaser, which was a nice light cocktail with Grapefruit.
The staff is very attentive and will clean your table and refill your glass regularly. Our waiter was the best! He was very nice and gave us a complimentary Monkey Bread with Bacon Butter, which I highly recommend. The bread was soft and paired very well with the butter. We also received a complimentary Birthday Cake, which consisted of layers of Pound cake cubes, Vanilla Ice cream, Cheesecake frosting and sprinkles with a candle on top. The dessert was pretty, fun and delicious and really gave the dinner a Birthday vibe.
We enjoyed our meal at Quality Eats Nomad and are happy to have found a new favorite restaurant. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to have a casual birthday dinner with good food and ambiance. I can't wait to go back for another meal ! Thank you for a great experience!

Was asked to wait for my entire party to show before being seated (2 partial parties were seated ahead of me while I waited).

I put in the reservation notes to be seated at a table in the back and was brought to a booth in the front instead, then when I asked to move, we were put in the worst back corner booth next to the kitchen door while there were ample tables available.

I live around the corner and go here out of convenience pretty regularly, but, every time I get treated like a tourist they don’t expect to see again.

I cannot understand the 5 star reviews this place gets. It is slightly elevated comfort food. For the price there are far better places. It is not a steak restaurant by any stretch. The special bread was mediocre, the salads average. Not worth the trip.

Sound was a little loud but they quickly turned the music down when we requested it.
Everything was delicious and an excellent value, especially for Manhattan dining.
There were fancier steak places around, but Quality Eats delivered an excellent Porterhouse for Two at a more reasonable price.
Lemon chicken was very good (a little rich with butter), veggie side dishes excellent

The waiter was good, but a little over eager and then trailed off the level of service. But he was very friendly and helpful. The food was good, but I think that I might have chosen the wrong dish. I had the Don Marche steak, which was slightly too rich for my taste. My friends did enjoy their food as well, and even mentioned that the restaurant was nice and not too noisy, which helps when trying to make conversation, although not sure if this was because we were there earlier (7.45pm).
Overall , it was a great evening and would definitely be back!

Having dined at Smith & Wollensky and Quality Italian, my wife and I decided to give Quality Eats a try. Glad we did, it's a really nice steakhouse with a much more modern and casual atmosphere. And my steak was absolutely perfect. My wife also loved the creamed spinach hushpuppies.

Definitely recommend and will return again soon!

After eating at the bar twice before, we returned for a table reservation with a guest. Aside from an excruciatingly loud noise level, the food wasn't up to previous experience, and the drinks fell short of our and our guest's expectation. This isn't a restaurant for people who want good food, but is great for an ambiance-loving crowd that likes a live room. We won't be back.

Excellent restaurant. Cool vibe and music. Interesting food. My sons had the porterhouse which they said was delicious bit not as large as a typical steakhouse steak. Our apps of the grilled boucheron cheese and the spicy tuna were DELISH! Could have used some bread, however. Ridiculous to have to pay for bread. I had the chicken salad with salmon instead and that was great as well. The chess pie for dessert was totally intense. The 4 of us couldn't even finish. Excellent crackly sauce. Kinda pricey, but its NY with a cool vibe. All in all, I'd def recommend.

This location seems great for groups larger than 4. There lots of suitable tables and not too crowded for brunch. Food was great but service from Mike C was even better. All his recommendations were spot on and he helped to liven up our (already rowdy) table. The morning bun and chilaquiles in particular were very tasty.
