Steakhouse
Quality Meats is a contemporary restaurant that serves a rustic New American menu.
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.

初めてのステーキハウスでした。
あんなに美味しいステーキを食べたのは初めてです!今度はディナーでタルタルステーキも食べてみたいです。
open tableで誕生日を設定していたら最後にバースデープレートを出してくれました。お腹がいっぱいでデザートを諦めていたのでちょうどいい量のデザートで嬉しかったです。

Food is always great. Service too. If it’s a business dinner you ha e to make sure you get a quiet section which can be difficult. Upstairs is good.

This used to be our go-to steakhouse, but no longer after this experience. Not a great choice for after-theater/performance dinner as the service is sorely lacking at that late hour. From the greeter at the door who tried to turn us away with a rude “Kitchen is closed” announcement - yet we called to advise we were running late due to the ballet’s later end; to the not-so-great service we received (we had to ask for everything - water, steak sauce, etc.); to the waiter wrapping only portions of my meal (why would he choose which items I wish to take home? Was I not paying for everything I ordered?!). The overall experience left a disappointing feeling in the pit of my stomach after a marvelous performance at Lincoln Center. Needless to say, I no longer will recommend QM to anyone for fear of sullying my reputation if someone should have the same dismal encounter as we did.

Overall this is a really nice steakhouse, mostly because it’s a little different than most, the setting, the crowd, the music, makes it all very comfortable yet trendy… And I must say the staff from the bartenders to the hostesses to the waiters were all exceptionally nice and accommodating…
The drinks were delicious, the wine list is very nice, and the bread that comes to the table is delicious!
as an appetizer we got the shrimp cocktail, beautiful shrimp, with three remarkably good yet different dipping sauces, I recommend this highly… We split the green goddess salad… Which I have to say was the only thing I did not like, it’s basically a conglomeration of common ingredients, and very bland, this I would not order again..
Porterhouse for two was one of the best I’ve had in a long time… Super juicy, slightly salty, slightly charred and full of flavor…, Very worth it! … We opted for just one simple dessert because we were full, so we got the cookie monster, which really was delicious, simple, and did the trick to satisfy our chocolate craving… And like I said earlier, the waiters were on point, friendly, and attentive.

Good overall but the main server could have been warmer. Also, I appreciated being tucked away into a cozy nook part of the restaurant but we were seated one table over from a screaming child. She eventually calmed down but it wasn’t the romantic evening I had anticipated

While the food is very good prices are on the high side, even by New York City standards. Table was not ready/available at the time of our reservation. Service was fair to poor. This was my fourth time dining at Quality Meats, first in several years...will not return.

First steak was not prepared as ordered. A second steak was requested. Half an hour later we had to ask where the replacement steak was and waiter had to go back and request again. The replacement steak, because they forgot to do it, was brought to our table completely charred on the outside and raw on the inside. I requested it BE cooked medium. Alas we just asked for the check and neither of us actually ate anything but the salad. The part that kills us most is the experience still cost $151.00. We were robbed and just wanted to get out and go someplace else to eat. We were starving.

Came in this past Saturday for an 8pm reservation for 4 and we were sat almost immediately which was great. We had a few different apps; both the Crab Avo & Burrata - which were good, but the crab cake was average at best. The waiter recommended both the Tomahawk & Porterhouse - which is usually my go-to at any steakhouse. Both steaks really underwhelmed. While certainly nice-portions, both steaks were fatty and not so tender. Sides & cocktails were fine, but we really came for the steak and it simply did not deliver. With so many different options - esp at this price point, we were a but disappointed. Great set-up with awesome service, but we came for the steak.

It was just ok. I have to leave more than 50 words to say “it’s just ok”. I had high expectations after hearing how amazing this place is and I left thinking I just blew $300 on dinner for two with no drinks and it was again “just ok”.

Valentine’s Day. Food and service was great. Ordered the lobster and lump crab cocktail and for entree we ordered the porterhouse for two with potatoes. Eveything was excellent. The desert menu wasn’t impressive. They need to put s chochlate cake and simple deserts. The bathroom sink and faucet is horrible they need to re do those bathrooms ! Water was very hot or very cold handles are ancient.

I went on Valentine’s Day so it was pretty crowded. They got me to my table a little later than my reservation, not too much later (10-15 min). Everything about this place was on the money. The crowd was an upscale mixed scene, the restaurant is hip & modern, and the food was excellent. I had the double boned 64 oz rib steak, amazing!!!!! You get what pay for, this place is def a place I want to return to... soon.

Sorry but this is not the Quality Meats of a year ago. Unsure what to attribute the colossal slip in food and service - but I have dined here regularly for 8 years and will not return. The experience was nothing short of terrible...from the snarky hostess, to the abrupt, overwhelmed server, to the average meal. It’s a shame, it was excellent for many years.

Quality Meats has been and will always be our "Go To" Restaurant in NYC. We have never had a bad meal. However, the noise level from where we sat (at the top of the stairs) made it impossible to have a conversation with anyone. The noise traveled up the staircase and right into our ears making any conversation challenging. With this being said, Quality Meats remains one of my faves but next time, I'll ask for another table if offered seating there again or to be moved if we experience the same level of noise.
