About Quality Meats

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.

Quality Meats Ratings and Reviews
The beginning of the end started at this restaurant. Bartender was more interested in the ladies at the bar then serving paying customers drinks. Took 45 minutes for the salad to come and then it was incorrect. They said will you made it customized salad so it came out wrong. Ordered a medium rare steak and it came out medium well. Manager came out grab the steak came back drop the new one and walked away never said a word about the quality. This is probably the worst restaurant I've ever eaten at because when I brought it to their attention they really didn't care. They don't care because tourists come and eat over and over again and they really don't need our business
My wife & I were looking forward to this experience but ended being severely disappointed. The trend of high end expensive restaurants with uncomfortable wood or metal chairs has got to stop! We don't expect to pay $250.00 for dinner & drinks and sit in a fast food type comfort. Did you ever hear of putting a cushion on a chair? Its not a novel concept!
As to the food which all gets impacted by the comfort aspect. If we remove how uncomfortable it is to dine here, here is the review:
Bone in Sirloin steak for $53.00 was good & worth it. Shrimp cocktail was on the expensive side @ $23 for 4 huge shrimp with dipping sauces-Really good & worth it! Caesar salad for $16 was good but way too small. Its romaine lettuce, croutons and dressing. Not a good value!
Service was spotty but servers were very nice & professional when they did focus on us. I can imagine its probably excellent most of the time.
Having moved back to the city after a long hiatus, we have noticed the trend in NYC that many restaurants are onto with regard to comfort. We don't subscribe to it and will be very discriminate about how our money is spent.
If you need a template for how a high end steak house should be comfort wise and are ever out in Melville, Long Island: try Scotto Brothers "Blackstones". Every restauranteur who doesn't believe a high end meal doesn't have to be comfortable in the city should have to take a continuing education course by having to eat dinner here once a year!
Came here for Valentine's Day and it was super packed! However, the staff here greeted us very warmly and took care of us until we sat at our table. The person who handed us our menus was so incredibly kind and made us the BEST steak sauce I ever had later on. Our waitress was very friendly and fast (I never had an empty glass of wine). The kitchen got our order mixed up which was disappointing but we got fresh new sides along with a new side our waitress recommended for free. Overall, the steak was ok which is what we were there for, the sides were amazing along with the appetizers and drinks. I'd definitely recommend going and I will definitely be back for a normal date night versus on a special occasion like Valentine's Day.
My wife and I have been going to QMs for 8 years and it use to be our favorite steakhouse in NY. Current management seems to be focused on short-term profits over good customer experience; for example, they no longer provide an amuse bouche; steak quality down (2 trips in a row); and they added marks on their glasses to make sure waiters don't provide the previous generous wine pours. Unfortunately, QM is no longer on our list of restaurants to splurge on when we get a date night.
We waited 70 minutes for our salads and appetizers to come out, and had to order the same glass of wine 4 times before it came out. They totally forgot one desert, and no one ever checked to see if we needed anything.
One person in or party needed an elevator to go up the 3 sets of steps to our table, but alas, even tough the restaurant is on 4 levels, there is no help for those who can't climb stairs.
And all through it, our server made us feel like he was doing us a favor to bring the late food.
Definitely would never recommend to anyone!
We went initially because it was Restaurant Week. We were informed upon arrival that they were not participating even though the reservation was made on Open Table on Restaurant Week links. Anyway, the place was crowded and very noisy. The service was very good. The food was tasty and the drinks were amazing. While the food was not the best, it was far from the worst and I would likely dine there again.
QM jammed our table of 3 next to a table of 20 in a secluded corner. It was difficult to talk to the guys at our table unless you yelled. The servers kept apologizing but that didn’t prevent them from focusing their attention on the bigger table. Definitely not worth the price and an overall poor experience. We won’t be going back.
From the moment stepping into Quality Meats the service was impeccable. The bar is a great place for a group to gather in then we were shown to our table upstairs when the group was all there. Food selection is amazing and the bacon/peanut butter was outstanding.
The wine chosen for us matched the meal perfectly and everyone had a great time.
Quality Meats' interior is amazing. The hostess was very friendly and greeted us upon entry and made us feel very welcome. We were seated upstairs which is very cozy. Our server "Burdi" was very attentive and available every time we looked up he was there. He also made sure our food was right and that the wine was appropriate. Burdi had the perfect balance and took great care of being friendly without being too familiar. Management take note of that because it is a truly an asset in the restaurant industry! Overall great experience, great wine, great food and amazing desserts try the burnt marshmallow! Only downside is bathroom is way downstairs. Definitely recommend for enjoyable dining experience lunch or dinner.
We love Quality Meats, the food, service, ambiance is PERFECT! We usually go there for special occasions, date news and when we have friends and family in town. We have never had a bad meal here. Once they even forget to give us our leftovers, but by the time we reminded them they had tossed them away - so the offered to offered to make a new one for - and it was one of their higher priced items. The staff - especially waiters are super attentive and nice! We went for my husbands birthday and they gave us the dessert on the house. Can't say enough good thing about this gem. Thank you Qaulity Meats for always making our nights special.
