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.

We partner with The Infatuation to bring you their smart, helpful, trustworthy reviews of restaurants on OpenTable.

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!

Great steakhouse recommended to us by friends and it didn’t disappoint - exceptionally good steak, we shared a porterhouse between 3 as 2 of is aren’t big eaters and it was absolutely delicious, lovely atmosphere. We went with the kids early evening and had amazing service.

Food was delicious. Our waiter was David and he was great. Very attentive and perfect with his suggestions. We really had a great night. We were so full from dinner and we had tickets to a show. After the show we went back to the restaurant for dessert. The sticky toffee pudding was outstanding!!!

Left very disappointed with the service on what was out first night in New York. A real shame as we had been very much looking forward to dining here.

Our steaks arrived a full 45 minutes after our starters, and mine was far, far beyond medium rare. When I complained, the waiter tried to explain that because my wife had opted for hers medium/well that our steaks had taken longer to come. In what world a medium/well cooked steak takes that long, I'm not sure.

My steak was replaced, and a complimentary side given. However, by the time this had arrived, my wife was almost finished. A manager did then bring another complimentary dish (the same one!) and said that my steak would be on the house. It turned out that both steaks were removed, which I thought was very decent of them.

However, the service effectively spoiled our first night in this amazing city

The servers were overbearing in trying to take our order quickly after our arrival despite the fact that it was only 5:30 pm and the restaurant was far from busy. When they finally caught on that we wanted to enjoy our cocktail a moment or two before ordering, they then ghosted us the rest of the evening. Food was fine but completely unremarkable and terribly overpriced even for NYC.

We waited 45mins for our reservation, and 30mins to order a drink at the bar while waiting. Upon getting seated, our server told us that we needed to order everything at once because the kitchen was backed up. Food was subpar and lukewarm upon arrival. Overall very unsatisfactory meal, food and service, especially for the price point. Will never go back.

I am from Texas and it is hard to beat our steaks - but Quality Meats makes the best bone in filet I have ever had.

Foie gras to die for and the steak tartar is off the chain. The best side dish? They are ALL amazing - but I will be back for the creamed corn brûlée. Hats off to QM - every time I am in NYC this is a must!

This has been my favorite restaurant for the last 6 years until last eve when Ender was my waiter.He was the most inexperienced disingenuous and nasty server. I'm so grateful we had Billy as the assistant server. I was embarrassed as I come here at least 10 times a year with clients over the last 6 years
Also with the wine list 50% of the wines are not even in stock which is terrible for an upscale restaurant. There was no wine Sommelier nor wine informed manager on the premises on a Thursday night in NYC!
I have loved this restaurant every time but this time was an absolute debacle and I would probably never come back again. The experience wasdissappointing for an extremely costly dinner for three people. I could tell you all the things that were not right ,however it was mainly because of Ender we felt we were in a used car dealership. Ender needs to be retrained or let go .Frankly it was such a bad experience I'm just not sure if I will return anymore.I'm sure there are better places to eat at this point. There certainly are way better waiters that appreciate providing good service.

Worst service ever. We arrived before the lunch hour had officially started (11:20). We had a reservation 10 minutes later. We were the first and only party (of 5) sitting in the dining room for the first half hour that we were there. However, our original waiter was too busy to continue to help us, so another waitress helped us during the majority of our lunch. We had to wait 20 minutes for water and to order drinks. Then when we were done with our meal, another 20 minutes to get the check. Our temporary waitress was not nice.

I had heard good things about Quality Meats, but will not go again. I am also steering friends away.

I appreciate being accommodated for a last minute reservation. The staff was excellent! The restaurant itself was very chilly, I kept warm with my coat on my lap. Also, to enjoy my meal while it was still warm I had to eat it fairly quickly. Which rushed the experience. I would have liked to take my time to enjoy the meal/experience with my husband. It was our 21st wedding anniversary. I would still return or recommend.

Came here to celebrate my friend's birthday after we went to see a Broadway show. We got there 20 mins prior to reservation time. After checking my reservation, the hostess asked that we wait a little bit for the table to be ready. Thought it was a little strange considering there were a lot of empty tables. That didn't matter because the group wanted drinks anyway. We sat at the bar, ordered our drinks and then our hostess came up to tell us the table is ready (coincidence?) Not a big deal. Took our drinks to the table.

The waiter and staff who helped us were fantastic. Told us recommendations. We got the Double Rib for two and the Porter House for two, along with 2 apps and 2 sides, thinking that would be enough for a party of 4. Boy, did we over ordered! The Double Rib was huge! The 4 of us could've eaten that and still be full. Both cuts were delicious & cooked to perfection. I like my steak medium rare and it was done perfectly. I've been to other steakhouses and they overcook it. It was seasoned perfectly and the steak sauce was good too (I normally don't like sauce on my steak).

We didn't finish both steaks, so we asked the waiter to wrap up the leftovers (including the bones, still a lot of meat on it). My friend took it home and later told me the steaks were still good.

The bill came out to a bit under $500 for 4 people (including drinks, dessert and tips). Obviously not a place we would come for a regular dinner. But for a special occasion, definitely. Great atmosphere, food is good and service is fantastic.
