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.

We came here to celebrate my father's birthday, and he couldn't be happier with the food, wine, service, and the place in general. Benjamin took care of us and his attention was remarkable.

Very good menu with a nice variety of fine meats to choose from. For appetizer, try the thick bacon with jalapeño and peanut butter… excellent. All food was prepared well. My only complaint: it's an unwritten rule of good restaurants not to bring the main course until the appetizer has been finished and dishes cleared, and this did not happen. Steak came when I was still enjoying my appetizer, a "no-no" for a restaurant of this caliber. But... it's not a perfect world. I will be back- food and drinks were excellent.

Fourth visit. Steak wasn't cooked right. Was taken back, but still rare in the middle the second time. Asked for medium. They took it back, and gave me a new one, cooked perfectly. Did not charge me for it. That wasn't necessary, but I was grateful.

Still my favorite steakhouse in NYC.

My family’s last night in NYC, and I had read about this steakhouse while building up high expectations. We shared a tomahawk and a porterhouse for two with a few sides. Meat was very good and cooked perfectly. Sides were quite yummy, esp the broc/cheese bites and creamy spinach. Wood love to go back.

Sometimes even on a big, bustling holiday where half of New York does anything but stay in, cook, and eat turkey (and that even includes the tourists who come to town during Thanksgiving), you want nothing more than someone to do the preparing, the cooking and the cleaning-up....leaving you to just enjoy an incredible steak, even better sides, terrific appetizers and outstanding desserts. Quality Meats right off Sixth Avenue and 58th Street, a hop, skip and jump from Quality Italian provided us a very memorable Thanksgiving with extraordinary steaks along with the famous Quality Potato, corn creme brulee (died and went to heaven eating this dish!), and gnocchi and cheese that quite literally melts in your mouth. And there is no way to even describe how delicious and decadent Sticky Toffee Pudding was and always is. A great night and a great steakhouse on a great holiday with wait staff like JC making it a night to remember for many Thanksgivings to come! Bravo to everyone at QM for a job exceedingly well done.

Love coming to quality meats, it almost never disappoints. But this time it did :( my husband and I came to celebrate thanksgiving here and were seated right outside the kitchen door, which was really busy. Also, our waiter didn’t really give us anytime to ask questions. We waited maybe 20 min for someone to come to the table. Our server seemed to have two 6 top tables he was more helpful with. When he came to finally take our food order after 20 minutes. As we tried to ask him questions he didn’t really care to hear what we had to say and abruptly cut us off, we were trying to get mashed potatoes instead of sweet potatoes. As my husband was asking for the Option to switch he cut him off and said “all the sides come with the meal So you don’t really need to add anything” as he proceeds to collect the menus. Before he walked if we asked if we could order 2 quality mules, he nodded and walked off. A couple of moments later our turkey and steak meals arrived (2 thin slices of turkey, a couple of over cooked carrots and runny sweet potatoes for $42? Steak was delicious though) never to see him again. Never asked if we wanted another drink or if everything was ok. Finally after we finished the meal we sat with stacked empty plates in front of us for 20 minutes before a different server came over to refill our waters , remove the plates and dropped our check off. We felt rushed and ignore. He was more worried about his bigger tables that he neglected is. I usually love this place but this was a terrible place to celebrate a holiday with my loved one.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Kris. This definitely doesn’t sound like a good evening. On behalf of our team, I apologize for dropping the ball in this manner. This is not within our standards of service nor a good reflection of our brand. I would like to get in contact with you to learn more about your experience as well as how we can make it better. If you would, please reach out to me directly at joliver@qualitybranded. I look forward to hearing from you.

We came to Quality Meats today for Thanksgiving. We were seated at a nice table upstairs in a corner which we discovered was freezing. We asked to have the A/C redirected or warmed up but it was never adjusted. Imagine paying these prices and freezing through the entire meal. The food was subpar at best. My son who has dairy allergies had a very limited choice as almost everything contained butter. The sides the said they were grilled or roasted come dripping in oil. Roasted mushrooms came dripping in oil and some type of sauce and our waiter never said a word. Roasted potatoes came smothered in bacon but we were again never told. We sent the sirloin steak back twice as it was not the quality you would expect. The ridge wine came at almost room temperature. Overall very very disappointing except for the deserts which were excellent. We will not be back as there are many other high quality steak houses in the city which won’t disappoint us.

We ordered MANY items and then shared them around the table. The Green Goddess Salad was delicious.
The Foie Gras was sumptuous. The bacon appetizer as salty and peanutty. And the ribs were crunchy and perfectly cooked. We started with Oysters. It was a great meal!

Food and service were great! Celebrated an anniversary there on Sunday and our servers were excellent. The food are priced reasonably. The only thing that could be improved was the bartending service.

It was all of our first time at the resto and the bartender that we had was a little cold. We had asked about the “smoked” cocktails and the bartender did not seem too interested in giving us details about it. We still ordered the “smoked gimlets” and it was great drinks, it just would be nice to be to have a warmer service considering the cocktails are a little pricier.

Very disappointed. Appetizers - scallops and crab cake were very good. Service was fine but not outstanding. Cool vibe overall. Shocking that a New York City Steakhouse runs out on a Friday and does not restock for Saturday, Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Such a basic thing. Liquor stores are nearby. Sides were nothing special but fine. Filet ordered medium rare came out cooked fine but had clearly been sitting as it was cold. The 18oz ribeye was seasoned, and over seasoned after cooking. I crunched salt grains multiple times. It reminded me of a lesser quality cut I would expect to find at a truck stop. House made steak sauce was more akin to a sweet red gravey served at some Italian restaurants. Buyer beware!

I ordered the rib steak which was very small compared to prior experiences. My wife's veal chop was ordered medium well and came out completely rare. They brought it back out and the sides it came with were completely cold 15 minutes later. Service was slow at best. A real disappointment overall. Could not even find the server to ask for the bill Manager had to bring it to us. Fortunately he was readily available as the table next to us was complaining about the steak as well.

There was a large party of 12 near us, and as a result, the service was sub standard. It took 20 minutes to get a waiter to take our order, and it was impossible to get a refill of our drinks. The whole meal was slow. This was not a typical experience at Quality Meats, so it will not prevent me from going back. However, I do think the derive needs to be addressed.

Always a reliable spot. Speedy service. Wine by the glass list is not very inspired and pretty disappointing although the wine bottle list is good. Service always seems to be observant and responsive.
