The varied menu focuses on modern interpretations of classic dishes such as Traditional Steak Tartare, Caesar Salad and Roasted Bone Marrow, in addition to several cuts of beef from legendary New York butchers Milton Abeles and Strassburger Meats.
The restaurant's side dishes alone merit a trip with innovative house specialties, including Corn Crème Brulee, Gnocchi and Cheese and Edamame with Mint Salt. The Quality Meats chefs are Craig Koketsu (Lespinasse, Stars) as executive chef and Cory Colton (Lespinasse, St.Regis) on pastry. The restaurant has a warm industrial atmosphere, created by award-winning AvroKO and features intimate dining areas, a comfortable bar area with well-stocked charcuterie bar.

One of our steaks was not warm, little to no flavor or seasoning. The server did not ever check on our table during or after the entree was served. When he did return, he only asked about dessert, did not once inquire how our meal was. For $200+ dinner, I would expect more service and better food than we received. But really the service was what disappointed us the most.

If you would be willing to email me at joliver@qualitybranded, it would be great to connect further and learn more about your time with us and how we can make it better. Thank you for you time & hope to hear from you soon!
The place came highly recommended. The steak was cold and we sent it back.It was placed on the grill again and tasted OK. The Creme Brûlée Corn was fantastic as was the Ceasar Salad. Meal was disappointing since it was my daughter’s birthday. Service was ok
Food was excellent. This was my second time at QM and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. My martini was ok, definitely not the best I’ve had. Overall experience was excellent.
Food good. Annoying to have to wait 25 mins after the reservation time to be seated.
Thank you for your feedback. You’re right, that doesn’t sound very appealing to me either. I’m so sorry that happened. If you would be willing to email me at joliver@qualitybranded, I would be happy to connect further and learn more about your experience. Thank you for your time and hope to be in touch soon.
This place sat us 50 minutes past our reservation time, what a joke. When we kept checking In, instead of being transparent, the hostess got defensive - bush league status.
Thanks for the pathetic experience - we will continue with quality italian going forward.
Locale rumorosissimo. Nonostante la qualita’ eccezionale della materia prima, come raramente ho trovato, l’ambiente e’ rumoroso all’inverosimile. Impossibile parlare. Questo ha rovinato la cena.
Infine 30 minuti di attesa per ol tavolo. NOnostante avessi prenotato.
Non lo consiglio purtroppo. E’ necessario piu’ tispetto per ol cliente
This was a return visit having had a great experience 5 or more years ago. Sadly it’s busier, louder and the food wasn’t as good. Last time they made a great steak sauce at the table whereas this time just dumped a ready made sauce on the table.
Good food but terrible freezing inside
The food was good, but it the seating is too close to Each other. You can hear people conversation next to you. I felt the service was too rush in the beginning. Trying to clean plates right away. But overall the food was great. The Filet was cooked right, the gnocchi n cheese was amazing
Ran late for reservations
Dined at bar
Hostess was very gracious and accommodating
The bar servers Rebecca and Natasha excellent service and personable
That’s fantastic! We are grateful for your kind words and we can’t wait to share this with Rebecca & Natasha! Looking forward to your next visit.
Excellent food, very nice atmosphere, impeccable service
Best steak I’ve ever had, can’t wait to go back. The waitstaff were super attentive.
Thanks John! Can't wait to pass this compliment on to our staff!
Excellent time except for the table next to us unhappy with their seats and had to make a stink of it.
Wonderful dinner with my 10 year old daughter before seeing a show! Excellent service and great food. Truly a wonderful experience!
Thanks Erin! Glad to hear that you & your daughter had a fun evening!
Visiting my daughter in New York City
Great food and service. I wish it was a little less loud.
Jessica was our waitress for lunch! She was awesome and gave us nice suggestions. Super attentive. Oh and by the way....the food was great. New England Clam Chowder...amazing!
Thank you for your kind words! We hope to see you & your guest soon!
Everything was lukewarm like it had been sitting around. Nice waiter but very slow service. Probably because the food sat for 20 minutes

Great place, food is fantastic! Be prepared it is loud, but worth it!!
We were disappointed!!
We waited for our table for almost 20 mins even though we had a reservation. Table was tiny and tight for 4 people. We did not get the service we expected. Waiter had an attitude. Noise was horrific, we had to scream to be heard. Sorry to be so negative, but when I invite my 3 adult children for a festive steak dinner at Quality Meats I expect the best of everything, especially when the meal is expensive!!
Service was excellent
Waiters were on top of it
Terrible! Steak was tough, service rushed, uncaring, unstylish menu, Burnt and hard creamed spinach
Great place to celebrate the NYC marathon 2019!
That's awesome to hear! ...and CONGRATULATIONS!
Everything was just great
Service was rushed, bernaise sauce was cold.....overall, just ok this time
Really good! The corn brûlée was so good
One of the best filets ever! Crabcake 'appetizer' was 4 oz. of almost 100% lump crab. Delectable. Sides are enough for 2-3 people. Overall, for an outstanding dinner in NY on a Saturday night, well worth every penny!
Wow, Patti, thank you for such amazing feedback. Come visit us anytime!
We had an amazing evening celebrating my boyfriends 28th birthday! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend to any of our friends. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality!
Thank you for the amazing feedback; we look forward to having you back.
Dinner was outstanding. We had the ribeye steak which was excellent, but the surprise was the baby back ribs which were awesome, so glad I ordered them. Corn creme brûlée was terrific and so was the bread pudding. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough. Will absolutely go back the next time we are in the area.
Thank you! Please do, come and visit us next time you're in town!
Amazing experience! My anniversary dinner was perfect because of Quality Meats and their wonderful staff.
Thank you, Lily. Happy Anniversary!
Yes, you can leave well satiated without a steak. While that is my usual order, on the last visit we just went with some appetizers: bone marrow and a lobster pasta on special and the bacon/peanut butter/jalapeño jelly. We were full, fat and happy. EVERYTHING on their menu is well prepared and delicious. It is a great fall space - cozy but not confining. Quality Meats is a winner any way you look at it.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We'll definitely pass this on to our Culinary Team!
Food and service exceeded our expectations. Food presentation could use some improvement—our porterhouse for two was smushed onto a small serving dish. Ambience was impressive, except for the creepy guy handing out across from our table.
The food and the service was stunning. This could a new regular place for lunch or dinner. Stunning.
Amazing service and Chef Aaron Bashy is the best in New York City. My steak was off the charts excellent and I would definitely go back during my next visit to NYC.
That's amazing to hear! We'll definitely pass on the compliments to our Chef & our team!
Great dinner to celebrate a special occasion. Charcuterie board was outstanding. Oysters were fresh and sweet. Tomahawks were out of this world. Dry aging does magic to the steak experience. Sides were also great. Special mention for the gnocchi mac/cheese. Ordered a magnum of a fine Napa Cab to complement the great food. Service also great. The old (Mexican or American Indian looking) woman standing outside the toilet area was a little odd, but overall a five star experience.
We really appreciate your detailed feedback. Looking forward to seeing you back soon!
the meat was excellent and also the various starters and side orders.
I think it is a bit overpriced but it looks like New York is expensive everywhere!
Glad to hear you had a great time with us, Simona! Hope to see you again soon!
