Wonder wine selection, very flavorable and amazing presentation of the meal. The ability to split the steak selection was incredible to share the dining experience. The location was a bit noisy and dark in some spots in the restaurant.

We love Quality Italian, but QMeats was a disappointment.

Eliminate the two-top on the top of the landing by the kitchen. The traffic is distracting to the dining experience and the attentiveness of staff is focused on the rest of the dining room.

Appetizers:
Baked oysters (sort of like clams oreganata) – wrong choice of oyster and nothing special.
Shrimp cocktail – if your “modern take” on cilantro crema for dipping is better than your cocktail sauce, we have a problem. Also, cocktail sauce requires horseradish. There was not even a hint of a rub.

Mains:
Hanger steak with sour cherry reduction (my dish) – tasty but again, nothing special (and lukewarm). To their credit, cooked perfectly and tender. But you’re better off getting the pork chops (in similar cherry reduction) at QI.
Lemon chicken confit (his dish) – the definition of entrée envy tonight. Even the white meat was moist, and the lemon was super fresh. Best part of the meal by far.

Sides:
Corn crème brulee – same as Quality Italian, where you are better off going. It was the wrong consistency, too dry.
“Charred” broccoli – buy the steam-in-bag kind for $4.99 in the grocery store, skip the steaming, drop it on the grill for 30 seconds, and sprinkle it with liquid smoke, and you’ll know what we ate.

Service: woefully lackluster. server was uninterested in being helpful or in the brand he represents. Asked for Sancerre, he pointed at a Chardonnay and said it was “basically the same.” They are not. Asked for recommendations, he read off the menu that they have “a lot of steak.” Asked whether the chicken dish is popular, he actually said “I don’t like chicken.” I don’t remember asking him for his likes and dislikes in food.

Again, huge fan of QI and always have a great experience there, culinary and otherwise. Strongly suggest dining there, because this was far from “Quality.”

The food was delicious as always. The service was great, very attentive. The food is pricey but it’s perfectly prepared. The peanut butter bacon appetizer is weird but really tasty.
The staff was so nice. We felt welcomed and really taken care of.

Outdoor dining at it’s finest.

Waiters were knowledgeable, attentive and ALWAYS had their masks on correctly.

The private cabins are a true delight to dine in! No shared air-space with other parties, music to drown out the street noise, temperature controlled, and beautifully designed!

And as always the food was spectacular!

We’ll definitely be back soon!

Luis A. And the team made our dining experience exceptional. Luis’ service, personality, attention, and dessert recommendations were on point! You cannot go wrong with any of the choices on the menu. Service can make or break an experience and Luis did not disappoint in any way. The staff even brought out an additional happy birthday dessert with candles because I simply put it in the note on the reservation. Thank you for a memorable experience!

Don’t bother with the bacon appetizer as it was chewy/tough. Steaks were delicious, sides were predictable, dessert yummy. Server was rough around the edges considering the high end atmosphere and prices. Wouldn’t need to go back or recommend it to anyone as much better places are available everywhere in NYC.

Took my husband out for a date night. He absolutely loved his tomahawk steak. Said it was the best he's had! I am a vegetarian but had alot of sides to enjoy. Loved the gnocchi and the corn creme brulee was to die for! Sooo good. We had such a great time. The servers were attentive, knowledgeable, and just so fun! The ambiance inside was preferred over the outside cabins. All the customers were spaced out inside and as someone who is very careful with Covid, I was happy that the restaurant had these precautions. All servers wore masks as well. Loved the place, thank you so much for having us. We will definitely be back.

They brought me the wrong appetizer, then brought me the right appetizer no charge. They then forgot to bring us the gnocchi, but then charged us for it. When it came time for the bill I used their payment system. I wasn't sure if it went through or how to use it properly or if she received a tip because she was no where to be found. I understand she was very busy but not an overall great experience.
