Even though it's in Midtown, this multi-level meat market serves up one of our favorite steaks in town, and it's not what you might expect from a steakhouse in the area.

 (Kansas City)·Dined 2 days ago

This is my second time to host a business dinner at Quality Meats, and once again, we were very pleased with the meal, the service, and the atmosphere. The food overall was great, with the exception of one of the steaks being slightly over cooked, and my veal chop being overcooked slightly, there were no complaints about the food at all. The bone marrow, the salads, and the sides were outstanding.

From the moment we arrived we were rushed through our meal. It was apparent their goal was to turn over the table as soon as possible. For a place that is supposed to be about "quality meat" this was the worst rib eye I can remember having out. Our cut arrived to the table so cold I felt like I was eating left over steak out of my refrigerator . As someone who dines out several nights a week in NYC this was the worst dining experience of the year for me.

After an hour and a half wait for the main course, an overdone cold steak which was tough and tasteless arrived. After complaining to the waiter, he said he would talk to the manager. After trying to enjoy this special evening, the manager appeared and offered a bottle of wine on the house at a time when we were ready to leave. After the hype of Quality Meat, I will never return after all.

This was our second visit and it was just as good as the first. LOVE LOVE LOVE the ribs. The service is always top notch and the cocktails, delicious. Barron our server this trip was fantastic. It's going to be a staple visit whenever we're in NYC.

This was a GREAT experience all around. The food was AWESOME. As a vegetarian, it was odd that I picked the place, but the Crab meat appetizers intrigued me, as well as the sides. And, they DID NOT disappoint. We got the crabcake and the other crab appetizer in a spicy tomato puree and both were GREAT! The goddess salad was incredibly fresh, and amazing dressing.
Our waiter so wonderful and answered all of our questions without rushing us. We also enjoyed the rustic decor. I would definitely go back!!

Been to every steak house in the city, including quality meats in the past and I have to say the over all experience was lack luster. The food itself was subpar, the waiter was less than attentive(that's being generous).
Wait time for the food was abnormally extensive and when asked our waiter pointed to a server and said that's yours right there and ran away as that server began to place plates at the table across the room. In short long wait for bad service and food that's well below anything else available.

THE FOOD IS SUPERBLY PREPARED AND PRESENTED. IT IS THE BEST STEAK THAT I HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME. BUT THATS IT. THE ROOM IS EXCESSIVELY NOISY; THE RESERVATION WAS 40 MINUTES LATE; THE SERVER WAS CONFUSED; AND THE LAYOUT IS NOT FOR ANYONE WHO HAS THJE SLIGHTEST DISABILITY.

I'm here for celebrating New York City Marathon by myself and have great dinner. The staff suggest glass wine is well suited to my rib steak. But for solo female customer, like me, I won't suggest to order addition side dish. It will be too much to eat it. Finally, I packed my side dish to go. If possible, I hope the staff could suggest to have moderate dinner, not extra dishes.

I love this restaurant. It is my go-to-first when in the City. I know exactly what I want to eat and drink. It is always perfect. But tonight was different. The meal was great. QM’s veal chop is the best chop anywhere! Due to a wine distributor strike a large number of the wines were not available. Unfortunate for QM and very disappointing to those of us expecting quality wine options. The usual stellar service was off, but even that happens. The issue tonight was not food, wine or table service, but the total disregard for all guests trying to enjoy a meal and conversation - not to mention - no let me mention it - spending $$$ - while listening to an infant scream and shrill while the parents act as if nothing is happening. This is not a child friendly restaurant (unless parents and children have good dining out manners). Parents should be held accountable for their children’s behavior at any age and be respectful of adults around them trying to enjoy our night out. QM should manage all disruptions equally. If parents don’t have the common sense to take the child out, the Manager or staff should ask them to leave the main dining area. Most tables on the main level were visibly annoyed and irritated by the constant interruptions coming from this table. For those of us closer it was just time to leave. The waitstaff worked around it. The hostess at the front desk gave a weak ‘I’m sorry’ when it was brought to her attention. It was a disappointing ending to what is typically an outstanding dining experience.

I’ve dined at Quality Meats in New York several times a year since stumbling across it during a blizzard in 2011. Usually for large business meals, but other times for special occasions, like today. It’s been impeccable, until now. Today was solidly mediocre. Poor service. Just OK food. I had a better steak last week at Sullivan’s in Raleigh, which is, no disrespect to the good people in Raleigh, not a compliment to QM’s record when it comes to a bone-in filet. Not sure if they got new management or if it was just a bad server on their first night, but the whole thing was like an overpriced Applebee’s. Sorry. Will take a break and have to find quality meats elsewhere for a while.

After hearing good reviews, our expectations were set relatively high... and the actual experience surpassed those expectations with ease.

My friend and I enjoyed a glass of red wine as we split the Grilled Bacon appetizer and the Dry Aged Porterhouse for two from The Butcher's Cut menu with a side of Grilled Asparagus. For dessert, we ordered the Stucky Toffee Pudding and the Warm Apple & Plum Tart to go with our port. If you were to order what we did, you would certainly not be disappointed.

Problem with wine service. We brought a champagne and a red. Champagne was served room temperature in an “all purpose” glass. The red was decanted long after we finished the champagne. Steak was excellent (although it took a full 1.5 hours), but is QM a truly high-end, sophisticated New York steakhouse? Questionable.

I usually don't feel compelled to write a full review but feel so to do this time. It was probably the worst I have ever been treated at a restaurant. I presume Quality Meats has forgotten it is in the Service business, that the Customer matters and what "Quality" actually means. I left a note on the bill and I have yet to hear from Rodrigo, the General Manager, more than a week later.

They did not seat us when we arrived even though I had called and confirmed my reservation. To make matters worse, the hostess continued to blame us for the fiasco (she said she assumed we were not coming as we were a few minutes late) and lied to my face multiple times including stating she was the manager when I politely asked to speak to one. She also marked me as a "No-Show" -- I couldn't submit this review until I wrote to Open Table.

I did speak to the manager,Kevin, on the floor more than an hour later (we were seated 45 minutes late, no menus or drinks for another 20 minutes) but all he did was state that he had not witnessed the situation and hadn't been privy to the conversation. Defeats the purpose of talking to a manager.

The server (the 2nd one, the 1st one did not show up after drinks were late) did the best he could. He even tried to take the dessert off the bill since the kitchen was out of the dessert we ordered upon his recommendation. I asked him to put it back on the bill and paid (I tipped him 20% since it was not his fault) and left.

Needless to say, I am not going back to any of their restaurants again (I used to fairly often for business dinners) and wouldn't recommend it to any Open Table users. NYC has far too many options for a customer to feel like a restaurant is doing them a favor and that they should be thankful to be eating there. Goodbye......we won't miss you, Quality Meats!
