Overall, great experience but you have to prepare yourself ahead of time for the menu price. At 5pm the restaurant was empty but filled up over the next hour. However, the tables are adequately spaced to provide a semblance of private conversation despite the increasingly busy atmosphere. Wait staff was exceptionally friendly without becoming over zealous, as well as accommodating to requests, and very knowledgable of the menu / wine list. Apps, entree and dessert were all excellent across the board, including delivery time, temperature, taste, etc. We even added a side item immediately before the entree was served, and they rushed the order flawlessly and had it on the table only a few minutes after the entree was served. The only criticism may be the portion sizes are a notch smaller than "American" sizes, and the prices may be a bit over-inflated. This restaurant may best be for "special occasions" but absolutely willing to return in the future.

The food and service is normally great at this restaurant this visit they get 1 star and that is even too much as they screwed everything up from steaks to appetizers and service was just very bad over all

I hope that if we visit again they will do better

The host said they would find us at the bar for our reservation and never did, which ended us sitting down 35 minutes after our reservation. The wait staff was busiest tearing down tables and wheeling them through the restaurant / setting them up vs. attending current customers. Having us ask for a wine menu and later for water and the check. Which when it came had an additional item added. Not to mention the filet steak was charred for crunchy mouthful.

Quality Italian is just that...Quality! The food is excellent, service is great! Try the Chicken Parm , the Guac appetizer and the brussel sprouts. Salads were delicious too! Drink and wine selections were nice. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

For a Saturday night reservation I was surprised at how many families with young children there were, so I would say this is a more kid friendly space. I hated our table position (it was freezing and there were gusts of wind coming up the stairs all night). The server was great, extremely attentive and patient. The only negative on service was that they didn't crumb our table after appetizers. The bread left a lot of crumbs around, it looked messy and it didn't seem that anyone of the servers or bussers even noticed it.

Went to QI before the theater and to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Our meal was delicious, though expensive. This isn’t unusual in nyc but overall the options are all pricey. We shared a kale salad which was light and fresh. Hubby had a raw tuna app which he’s still raving about. Then he had the Dover sole which was light and fluffy. I had the gnocchi and have to say it was the best I’ve ever had...light airy pillows in a leek sauce, though the portion was a bit small. Would have liked more non-seafood and non-steak options. While the final tally was high, we enjoyed our yummy meal and efficient, friendly service. QI would be really great for a group or family meal...more fun to share!

Went to QI for New Years Eve dinner with friends. Service was fantastic as always but the rest of the evening was a bit disappointing considering we have been there for previous NYE dinners. Music was overbearing and not at all appropriate for the clientele at the time. Wines were overpriced and the meal itself was just so-so. Portions were tiny. Not at all up to the standard that we have been accustomed to in the past. Not sure if I'll go back. Also almost no recognition that it was NYE. They did give us a horn but no Champagne toast (as they have previously), no countdown etc.. They missed the boat this year.

New Year's Eve was the occasion and it was spectacular. The food was amazing! Everything that we ordered was packed with flavor. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a friendly get together, romantic date-night, or for one of those evenings when you want to treat yourself. We ordered the chicken parm(try the honey!!!), corn creme brulee, and fingerling potatoes. 5 stars across the board.

QI is good, not great. I enjoyed the apps more than the pasta entrees or burger. If you’re looking for good ilalian, this isn’t the place. If you’re stuck in midtown and need a decent, slightly expensive meal, it’s fine. Overall my husband, son and I have this place a B (Rounding up).
