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.

Mediocre service.
Seated in a corner as requested but adjacent to a large (16+ person table) loud private party.
No acknowledgement for birthday

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

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.

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.

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

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!!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
