Three of us ordered the filets and order them Med Rare all came out well done. Not what I expected from Quality Meats, been to Quality Meats several times and always great. Service was great, kitchen was off.
Shame on manager for not coming by to check with us.

Liked the eclectic menu a lot. The tuna tartare was excellent! I had the Franksgiving, Turkey hot dogs and all the fixings. I don’t live in NYC, but I’d come here anytime.

Absolutely amazing meat, and a wine list with very good pricing on more "prestige" wines. Noisy and cramped, but the food experience is worth rubbing shoulders with the next table. Loving it!

The food was excellent- I had the hanger steak and the carrots, which were very unusual and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient and the noise level was not too bad. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Service was slow, and server pressured us to order sides, being vague about what’s included with our entrees. Menu itself wasn’t clear about accompaniments either. My friend ordered fries because the server said the lemon chicken wouldn’t be enough on its own. When the chicken arrived, it was sitting on top of a couple roasted smashed Yukon gold potatoes.

Waiter was absolutely terrible. Seemed like he was high or didn’t care about giving us good service. Was annoyed one of our party didn’t show up because of an automatic gratuity. Friend had a tree nut allergy and she has to have an epi pen when she goes out to eat. He wasn’t familiar with menu items and was guessing about dishes that he “believed” to have nuts or no nuts. Waiter disappeared throughout shift and we didn’t see him for a good 40 minutes. The guy who served us food seemed super great. Wish we would have had him. Just because restaurant week doesn’t mean you should treat people differently. Wish I could say I still like this restaurant.

This is a good place. Not cheep but not bad for the neighborhood. They do a bit of an emphasis on steak, and are the best and most reasonable in the area. The side dishes are original and tasty. It gets crowded at the end of the week

Service was inattentive and slow/intermittent. They brought me the wrong drink twice and the server who brought it was rude, curt, and argumentative. In fact, rolled his eyes the second time. When I used the restroom, I overheard the servers at the service station making rude and insulting comments about the restaurant patrons. I chose this restaurant because I frequent the Upper Easy Side location on 2nd Avenue and have had nothing but exceptional food and service. Honestly, it was an extremely disappointing evening all around.

The food was excellent. Both the Caesar salad and deconstructed wedge were exceptional. The New York strip and frites was great. The service was excellent. We were in the front room, and it was incredibly loud. Probably quieter in the back room. But if you don't mind the noise, the food can't be faulted.

We had a wonderful experience. The dining room in the back is artsy, creatively decorated and trendy. The food was delicious. We shared a hamburger which came with curly fries and a Caesar salad. Drank a total of 2 glasses of wine and 1 beer. We had a nice leisurely lunch. Service was attentive and accommodating. The price just under $90. We will definitely return.

The food is delicious and creative. Every meal at Quality Eats is memorable but we felt VERY pressured to wrap up our meal and not linger. This pressure began at the 80 min mark... and we know full well that tables in most restaurants are the patron’s for a minimum of 2 hours. The service was very forced and bot the natirally welcoming attitude that we have experienced in the past. The sticky toffee cake is in a class of its own and the steak continues to be some of the most flavorful in the city. Yum!

The bavette steak was excellent as were the french fries. However I was disappointed by the smores dessert served with a nearly tasteless ice cream in its carton pot making the dessert difficult to eat..
Service was great. Place was quite noisy

We liked our appetizers but not our entrees and would not go back. Had crab dish and bacon as starters; both very good but especially the bacon. Had octopus and branzino as entrees. I eat octopus all of the time. This was not good. Way over cooked almost like it was fried. Tough and hard to cut with a knife. Two of us had this dish and both felt same. Also it comes with Farro which is not gluten free but if you have a gluten intolerance they will not replace it with anything but a cold salad. Disappointing. Branzino was fine but nothing special. Too many great restaurants in NYC to go back here. They were sold out of the roasted carrots at 6 pm on a Monday (only 2 other customers besides our group of 3). Server was nice enough but really tried to push bottles of wine. Especially the “sale”wines , most of which were $100 or more and still 2 x markup vs the 3 x markup they were normally priced at.

We waited for our lunch for about an hour and a half. I noticed it happened to another table as well. The staff updated us at the end of our wait and were kind to comp our entrees. They could have kept us more in the loop in my opinion but it was a busy day. I wouldn't return - just isn't worth it for the experience and the food was okay.
