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.

Waited 30 minutes after our reservation. Table was right in front of a cold air vent, and whilst I am NEVER cold, I was there. Crab appetizer was AMAZING, but the steak was cold. Based on other reviews a common occurrence. Considering the choices, I don’t plan to come back.

We had three dishes. Porterhouse for two; surf and turf; and salmon. The meal was complimented by mushrooms, creamed corn, farmer's green salad, and an unbelievable dish made of bacon with jalapeño peppers and peanut butter! The dessert was a strawberry sorbet. All of the food was outstanding, and unique. The sorbet was incredible (it had things in it like candied currants and Kir liquor, or something.) The crust on the salmon was heavenly. Service was friendly, helpful, timely, and efficient. I tried to think of something negative to put in the review, but nothing came up. My only complaint is the bill. This is an expensive restaurant. However, checking the menus of other NYC steakhouses, it is not out of line with its peers such as Smith Wolensky and Keens or Lugar. By the way, they custom make the steak sauce at your table. Great wine list. The guests we were entertaining loved it. Who knows, perhaps I'll get that contract. . . .

In NYC for business but had the chance to take our son to dinner while we were there. Quality Meats was our choice and it paid off! Started with cocktails at the bar while we waited for our table which took a little time even with a reservation. That was the only downside but gave us a chance to catch up on our son’s Brooklyn life. Started with our waiters recommendation of the house salad. Shrimp cocktail and scallops were also on the menu ... all were delicious. The filet and two sirloin steaks were all cooked perfectly! The only thing negative was the cheese and broccoli. It was wonderful but hardly any broccoli, mostly cheese. Overall, it was a great meal and will go back next time when visiting NYC. Walked passed Quality Italian so that’s on our list too!

Felt very rushed. Had a reservation for a Thursday evening. They brought out our salads and appetizers at the same time and then brought out our entrees before we’d had a chance to finish the first two courses. Even with the rush the steaks were barely warm. Had to ask for things multiple times (a butter knife and the extra lime I had ordered originally for my cocktail). Pretty disappointing for the money we spent.

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.

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

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.

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!!
