It’s really expensive (even for NYC), but the quality of the steaks and other dishes here is second to none.

Quality Meats is awesome. I was dining solo and sat outside. Taking in the City while having an amazing green goddess salad and delicious salmon was perfect. The service was professional and warm. Lovely summer evening. Thank you!

LOVED the Steak Tartar, the Filet and the corn creme brûlée was amazing. The Hanger Steak was borderline awful. The service was okay, but they were far from attentive.

For a higher end dining establishment, it was just okay. Probably wouldn’t go back with a lot of options for better service.

What a wonderful surprise! My biggest compliment is in a city full of restaurants and choices, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. Sommelier Robert was a great help and the two bottles he picked out were excellent. Great ambiance, great staff, great food! Everything I’m looking for in a restaurant.

The quality of service and food is worthy of its name. They are very sensitive to the needs of the customers. They are very thoughtful. When they learned it was our wedding anniversary, they gave us a very delectable dessert. The presentation was nicely done. As always, the experience is amazing.

We shared everything: special short rib and special cauliflower for appetizers, the porterhouse for 2, and the corn creme brûlée as a side.

The special short rib was a bit chewy. I enjoyed more than my friend, who had 3 bites and stopped eating it. Ended up taking most of it as leftovers.

We both devoured the special cauliflower.

The porterhouse for 2 was massive, delicious, flavorful, juicy and cooked medium per my friend’s request. (Personally, I prefer medium rare, so the meat was a bit more chewy than I am used to.) Overall it was excellent, especially once the waiter brought special barbecue sauce for the steak. I had asked for it to be sliced and it came more in large square chunks than slices. Took a couple of chunks back as leftovers — excited to continue eating that.

The corn creme brûlée came highly recommended as the “signature side” and I can see why! It was their version of creamed corn, made creme brûlée style with flambéed sugar on top. Absolutely delicious.

Maybe it was because we made a reservation at 9pm on a Saturday night, the restaurant was packed and LOUD. It was electric for a steakhouse. It took them 15 minutes to seat us so we were seated at 9:15pm. There isn’t really a waiting area, and the darkness made it a bit club-like by the bar. I think if you’re waiting it should be a bit lighter and maybe add some stools as well so people aren’t standing around blocking the main area. When we ended up getting seated on the second floor, it was so loud that neither of us could hear each other; the sound reverberating around the restaurant. So, we asked to move and the hostess was able to move us outside to a more private covered wooden booth with a fan — which was ideal on a warm and rainy summer evening. Appreciated their ability to move us.

The servers were attentive and descriptive, helping guide us and recommend us food for our meal. Overall the food was a bit pricey for steak & worth it!

Quality Meats was a fabulous experience. We tried to dine there in July 2019, but a large part of NYC lost power right after we ordered our meal. They gave us the bottle of wine for free and got us over to a sister restaurant that night for a great dinner. This was our return trip, and we couldn't have been happier. The service was perfect (got a number of recommendations along the way), the steaks were cooked exactly how we ordered them, the ambiance was lovely, and they gave us a free dessert for our wedding anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a nicer evening!

It was the worst filet mignon i’ve ever had. It wasn’t tender, it wasn’t easy to cut. I was expecting a better quality for a $55!! filet mignon. They take a lot of time to bring you a simple beer and the place is soooo noisy you can’t barely talk. they have too many tables in a small space, the tables for 2 people are so close each other that it looks like everyone is sitting together. it’s a shame because it’s well decorated, good luck

I think the meat was great! A little pricey to be fair but great. The wine however was shocking. I have been a lot of these wineries and the mark up on the bottles were insane. A normally 60-70 dollar bottle was going for average 200 - that to me is too much.

This was our second time dining at Quality Meats. We had fantastic service from Jeff and his team and great food. Filet was grilled to perfection and my wife's salmon was done perfectly. Very interesting side dishes. Try the cream corn brulee. We will return again when we are back in NYC.

From the moment you step in you know you’re in for an amazing dining experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations. We had the prosciutto appetizer, filet mignon cooked to perfection, crispy potatoes and corn creme brûlée which sounds weird, but, I promise, was fabulous! You will not be disappointed!

Food is excellent! Very busy but overall service was still good. Both the tuna and steak tartare are out of this world! It was my husband’s birthday and they brought us an AMAZING desert on the house. We were so full but could not resist!

Let’s start with our waiter. Very friendly and informed on the menu. Give us great guidance and recommendations.

We had the Stark tartare which was very nice, the thick cut bacon with peanut butter and jalapeño jelly this was outstanding.

For our main course bone in sirloin, tasty and perfectly cooked. The corn brûlée is perhaps the best side I have ever had.

Great place with a very cool atmosphere and decor.

I was disappointed. When we walked in the bartender refused to make eye contact and pour us a drink. We walked in at 7. The staff refused to seat us until 7:15 despite the fact that the restaurant was empty. I don't recommend Quality Meats

Historically, I've traveled to NY frequently for business and had dinner at QM at least 2X month for 10 years. It is a great restaurant and this was my first time back since the Pandemic. The food and service was always great and on that score QM was 100% as great as Pre-COVID. The room was still only 50%, so the ambience was still a bit lacking, but I'm hopeful it will be there soon.
Recognition of past frequent guests was not what I had hoped for; but that is completely understandable and I'll have to re-earn that familiarity; while at the same time, this is a great opportunity for new guests to earn their stripes at one of NY's best restaurants.
Hands down; this is the best steakhouse in Manhattan, with a staff that is every bit as good as the food.
