Food was great as always. The only thing was that we asked for a quiet table and we were seated upstairs near a party of 6 that were so obnoxious. Young blonde Chad looking guy yelling swearing telling pointless stories. I don’t want to eat in a church but there’s a tolerable amount of noise I can take. When someone is obnoxious swearing and being loud a manager should step in. If I’m paying 250 dollars for a meal I expect not to have to deal with loud drunk frat boys. I’ll be back but I wish someone on staff noticed.

Food and service was fabulous. Overall a great dining experience. However the place can get very loud at times and you may find yourself raising your voice significantly to be heard.

We were so pleased to find this restaurant gem on Open Table. Our family dined here to celebrate our daughter’s move into the city. It’s very expensive ($70pp for prime rib) but it was a special occasion so we didn’t mind spending more for a truly memorable dining experience. The service was excellent as was the food. The ambiance is exceptional.

Jeff's (our waiter) recommendations were great. Food was served at a perfect temperature. Portions were larger than expected. I really enjoyed the combination of flavors from their different dishes. We had the slab bacon with peanut butter, Short Rib hash, Porterhouse for 2, and crispy potatoes. Along with a nice Malbec that Jeff also recommended. All was amazing!

I did not enjoy this restaurant. The arrival experience was great. Very dark but I guess that’s their design . Our waiter started off great , but forgot about us after we placed our order, never came back to check on us. A second waiter offered us dessert and was very courteous and kind to my daughter. I ordered a medium well porterhouse for 2, it was burnt and it was well done, so more than half was uneaten, $120 down the drain. I didn’t complain about it. The sides were ok, the salmon was ok. Their dinner menu has very little options.

Oysters weren't chucked. 2 dozen!. We had to scrape them out ourselves and got little pieces of the inside shell in or mouths. When we complained, the waitress just said she'll tell the chef. No compensation or

We came here to celebrate a friends birthday dinner and luckily we were with a group that wanted to share all the sides and appetizers so we got to try soooooo many different things. Everything we ate was incredible. The corn creme brûlée was standout and so was my short rib dish. But all the things were amazing. Will be dreaming of this meal for years to come!

Outstanding, fun, cool vibe steak house. This is my third time dining here and always come when in the city looking for a great steak. Very cool restaurant and outstanding service. Menu is limited especially if you don't eat steak but there is chicken and fish.
The bacon appetizer was delicious and an interesting combination of flavors. Restaurant was very busy but the with multiple levels and imaginative dining "rooms" you don't feel like you are on top of each other.

The steak was delicious. I expected a larger tomahawk (go big or go home! I don't eat at steakhouses often) but honestly, it was plenty. Avoid the crispy potato side and enjoy one of the others instead. Excellent dessert (the strawberry shortcake ice cream) and the draft mule cocktail was super.

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.
