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.

My wife and I went to Quality Meats for our anniversary and before we went to see Wicked. I travel 50% for work and have eateng at a lot of restaurants worldwide. We both found QM to be one of the best meals we have ever had. Everything was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was highly knowledgeable and made great suggestions on appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts.

A few comments on what we ate as a reference:
Tuna Tartare - This was one of the best I have ever had
Green Goddess Chopped Salad - Was very good and huge portion
Filet Mignon - Best piece of meat I have ever eaten and I eat it red meat all the time.
Corn Creme Brulee - Yum!!!!! Wish I had the receipe
Home made ice cream (Vanilla Bean w/butterscotch)

Everything was quite high standard, food, drinks, service, atmosphere, crowd, etc. I found the lady sommelier a tad snobbish/officious, maybe because I was not spending a lot/or very sophisticated on wine. I could be wrong, or she maybe just having a bad night. If she had been a bit warmer, it would have been a '10' experience.

Quality Meats is a great steakhouse. First of all - we have been to all the big steakhouses in NY and this was the best steak I have ever had. Secondly, the atmosphere was very cool and not all steakhouse stuffy with suits taking up all the tables. Last but not least, the staff was awesome - service was prompt and super friendly. So glad we went.

Asparagus was the only negative other than that we enjoyed the porterhouse for two which came with a filet mignon side and a bone in side great for lady and myself respectively. Soft tender and cooked perfectly. Definitely. Come when they just start dinner service at 5 on Fridays if you are looking for a romantic dinner it is a lot quieter during that time. Star was very attentive and took care me and my new fiancée. This restaraunt is pricey but very much worth the price. QUALITY FOOD AT QUALITY MEATS.

Even though it was a quite Friday afternoon I ordered Filet Mignon Medium rare came out medium well,burnt on the outside and on one side so burnt it was tough as leather. I was in a rush to the Airport so had no time to re-order. The $12 white tasted like vinegar so the waiter offered an alternative which turned out to be $25 a glass. I had high hopes based on the write ups and was seriously disapointed.

I dined here for Valentine's Day on 02/14/2013. Each course was better than the next. We had ordered the lobster cocktail, the oysters, the porterhouse steak for 2, gnocchi and cheese, and creamed spinach. For dessert, we had ordered the chocolate banana bread pudding and mint oreo chunk ice cream. While it was on the more expensive side, it was worth that and so much more. The decor was beautiful. The service is impeccable. I will most definitely be returning!!! Please visit, you will not be disappointed.

My company has Quality Meats as a go to for dinner with our top clients and I've been wanting to get there myself for so long and when I finally did it was FANTASTIC!. The food was excellent and the service was topnotch. We really enjoyed having a few drinks at the bar prior to dinner as well. My only disappointment was where we sat, the very first table down the stairs from the bar and right next to the server station. Would have really loved to be inside a bit more but overall an absolutely fantastic evening. We will definitely make it a go to from now on!

QM is my favorite steak restaurant in NY. However, I had a very medicore lunch there. Service was particularly poor. Maybe the lunch waitstaff is the B team, but it did not live up to expectations or past performance. Food was slow to arrive, orders were mixed up between diners at the table and steaks were not cooked to the requested preparation. Very subpar expierience relative to past visits.

We are from New Orleans and always try to explore new restaurants every time we come to NYC, however, one restaurant that is always on our repeat list is Quality Meats. This is the third time our family has eaten there and it always exceeds expectations. The food is consistently outstanding as is the service. If I were to have a complaint it is that the restaurant can get noisy. A strong go to if you are a good food and steak lover.

New York just has a different definition for quality meats then us Southern folks. Next time I will stick with the Italian foods, or maybe Burger Joint a few blocks over.

I've been to Quality Meats a few times now. I've tried a couple of different steaks, but the aged rib steak is my absolute favorite. The sides are as good as you might expect from a top tier steak house. The servers know the menu well and can make good recommendations, so I would say they are better than average. If you enjoy a good steak and haven't tried Quality Meats, I would highly recommend it.

My Mom and I went to Quality Meats after a long, cold morning of running around the city. I had been wanting to go there for a few years and it lived up to all of my anticipated expectations!! The steak tartare was the BEST that I've ever had. The portions were extremely ample and satisfying, especially for restaurant week. Dessert was a delicious surprise at the end of the meal! Also, the interior is really cool and interesting. LOVED it!

You can't go wrong with this place. It's a solid performer time in and time out. I can't ever remember anyone complaining about dining here, and I've been a repeat customer on more than a few occasions. If you need a place that's sure to impress and don't want to take a chance on bombing, this is the place to go.

A friend suggested this restaurant when I told them I was looking for an amzing new steakhouse. The thing about Steak houses in NY is most of the wonderful famous ones are old style. This place is eclectic and vibrant. The food was unbelievable... between them making the steak sauce at your table to every other aspect I loved the experience.

I encourage people all of the time to have the expierence.

First time back in awhile and on a quiet Super Bowl Sunday. Food was quite good, although still think $40+ entrees should have a side included in the price. The filet mignon looked lonely on the plate until we added our sides.

Was very surprised to say the least. The steak was one of the best I have EVER had - and I am a steak connoisseur. I have been to all of the great steak house in NYC and this place ranks right up there with the very best and will become a regular on my circuit :-)

The side dishes were out of this world and the deserts were outstanding.

Thanks for a great time this past Saturday night
