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.

For the price, I expected more. Tables were very close together, so no privacy. I also felt rushed by the server. We noted a special occasion and asked for a cozy table and neither requests were recognized.

Absolutely one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in New York City. The food was amazing, every course, and the service from the hostess, to the bar and servers was first class. Thank you especially to Michael, David and Natasha, and the hostess (didn’t get her name) for the quiet and special table for two. Can’t wait to come back to NYC at the end of January and return to Quality Meats. A must dining experience in NYC! Great wine list and drink menu too. Loved the oyster selection, bacon peanut butter spice appetizer is a must, the filet flavor was outstanding and the salmon was perfect. We were too full for dessert so we didn’t get to try that. Everything we had was perfect and unique. Thank you!! ❤️

We made a dinner reservation for two for 5:15 because we were going to play. We were running late, so we called to let them know we would be there, but late, and needed to be out by 6:40. When we showed up they had given away our table because they said their policy was that they only hold a table for 15 minutes. When we said we had called, that did not matter. They found us another side table by the bar to eat at, so everything turned out o.k. But that beginning was not a positive. We had a nice meal--food quality was very good and service was very good, and we easily made our play. But just be forewarned that if you are running late, you might want to go to a different restaurant.

Excellent quality and good service. Went there with an office team for lunch. Only thing I did not like was the waiter was constantly trying upsell us. Other than that, everyone enjoyed their meal.

Jediglich der Geräuschpegel war bei uns sehr laut. Auch noch um 22h30. New York halt.

Service was amazing! Richard and Mike took great care of us. They were very attentive and quick to responded to every request. They even offered to keep my son’s steak warm in the oven while he had to step out for a phone call. They pretty much anticipated our every need. Will definitely return next time I’m in NYC.

The food was great but they were running really behind on reservations and we had to wait. Wouldn’t have been as bad but wife is pregnant and there was limited seating in waiting area, so we had to stand the whole time. We were crammed at a table really close to other couples. We actually had to move the table in and out just to get up and down. Absolutely cannot complain about the food, it was delicious!

Quality Meats is an aesthetically beautiful restaurant with table cloths, napkins, and wine glasses embroidered with QM- all nice touches. It's beautifully decorated, but so incredibly loud that I had a hard time hearing the person speaking across from me. As far as the food, the Caesar salad was a huge disappointment. I would have expected more that boxed croutons and oily dressing. The butternut squash soup was good. My steak was undercooked, which I didn't expect out of a high quality steakhouse, but what was more surprising was when the waiter placed a large bowl of steak sauce on the table in front of me. What!! I've never been in a high priced restaurant in my life that wanted me to drown the meat in sauce. I think I laughed out loud. The Yorkshire cream spinach was all bread and not much spinach, and we ordered potatoes and crispy potatoes came out, which were good. I thought I was going to get the Quality potato, which the table next to me had...I was disappointed. Overall, they don't begin to compare to Ruth's Chris.

Right from the jump the service was great. We had a wobbly table that the server noticed himself. Fixed it immediately. Also was quick to notice I hadn't gotten my first round of drinks. Food was incredible. Steaks cooked perfect. My girl went with the Hangar steak and I went with the Tomahawk that had been highly recommended. Both cooked perfect, full of flavor. The sweet corn creme brulee side left my taste buds full of so many mixed emotions that all I could I could do was laugh at how good it was. Now I feel like I have to try "Quality Italian" next.

The ambiance was very lively and upbeat and the restaurant decor very nice. However, my $54 filet (supposedly "medium rare") was more like "medium" and the steak was over-salted. Although it's clearly a matter of taste, we didn't care for the sides (mushrooms tasted very strange and the asparagus had some weird taste as well although not as bad). The wine was good (loved the wineglasses!) and the cappuccino was very well prepared. I've been to other pricey steakhouses in NYC and thought this one was overpriced for what you get. But it was a nice evening.

Very good menu with a nice variety of fine meats to choose from. For appetizer, try the thick bacon with jalapeño and peanut butter… excellent. All food was prepared well. My only complaint: it's an unwritten rule of good restaurants not to bring the main course until the appetizer has been finished and dishes cleared, and this did not happen. Steak came when I was still enjoying my appetizer, a "no-no" for a restaurant of this caliber. But... it's not a perfect world. I will be back- food and drinks were excellent.

Fourth visit. Steak wasn't cooked right. Was taken back, but still rare in the middle the second time. Asked for medium. They took it back, and gave me a new one, cooked perfectly. Did not charge me for it. That wasn't necessary, but I was grateful.

Still my favorite steakhouse in NYC.

My family’s last night in NYC, and I had read about this steakhouse while building up high expectations. We shared a tomahawk and a porterhouse for two with a few sides. Meat was very good and cooked perfectly. Sides were quite yummy, esp the broc/cheese bites and creamy spinach. Wood love to go back.
