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.

Have been here many times it’s our standard go to place. Tonight it was disappointing. Meat was very salty and my wife’s medium was only half medium the other half was well done. Waiter was nice but they were not as friendly and welcoming as in the past. Will think twice before trying again.

Hostess was awful, party of 8 with 2 tables and expected to have half of the party seat first and then when available then seat the other half of the party. Another front employee was able to seat us at the same time and even found to tables next to each other.

This was our second time visiting Quality Meats and I think it may have been even better than the first time. The front staff was so accommodating, the ambiance was lively and fun, and the food was superb. Everyone in our party can once again say that “this is the best steak you’ll ever have!” Thanks again for a wonderful experience. We can’t wait to return!

Would never have tried the bacon and peanut butter appetizer but our server recommended it and I can’t stop thinking about it. So unique and delicious. Also loved the gnocchi and cheese and creamed spinach. The steaks were “quality meat”. Expect to spend some money but it’s absolutely worth it.

Overall, the food was great however the service was subpar for a NYC restaurant given the numerous options there are for a good steak. Food took over an hour to arrive at the table even though dining at 5:00pm.

From the time we arrived and were seated, we were treated like royalty. It started with a complementary bottle of fine Italian champagne to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The food entre’s were prepared exquisitely and served magnificently. While the food was served in a timely manner, but we never felt rushed in any way. Couldn’t have asked for more delightful evening.

Went for my birthday, loved the fod and ambiance ! the spinach , porterhouse steak, and ghonni and cheese was beyond good. They gave me a lemon meringue pie to celebrate which was also good! And even my cocktail was good. Service great! This is definitely a date spot, girls night, birthday and even business friendly establishment. If it is on your to do list please go!

Both filets we ordered were tough and overcooked. We returned them to the kitchen. When we asked the waiter why they were still on the bill, he said he would tell his manager. The manager came to the table, apologized but would only take one filet off the bill. For a restaurant that calls itself “Quality Meats,”they should stand by their brand promise.

 (San Francisco)·Dined 5 days ago

Highly overrated! Filet was not particularly tender. Halibut was small and served on cold potatoes in a bowl shaped dish that did not allow for placing asparagus on the plate. Asparagus was old n not particularly tender. Service was nonexistent. Server couldn’t even wait to take the complete order and had to be called back to the table, never asked how our meal was, had to be reminded to bring the asparagus, never refilled water glasses, and generally didn’t seem to care if we lived or died. Only the coat check girl showed interest in our experience and referred us to the manager who was apologetic and wanted to give us some credit for next time but there will be no next time.

We were planning a trip to NY over my husband's birthday so I did a quick search for steak places in Midtown, and this one came up. He's a big fan of Pat LaFrieda (if you can be a fan of a butcher?) so I knew this was the place. We met some friends and had a table for four within a few minutes of our reserved time. Was glad we booked early because it was packed! It has a lively atmosphere, a bit loud as other reviewers suggested. But the steak was delicious, as were the sides. Furnishings and decor are amazing; the place is quite a bit larger than it looks when you enter. The staff was very friendly and helpful across the board. Would definitely go back!

The meal was great and the chocolate cake was to die for. The options for sides on the lunch menu was limited and we were looking for potatoes either hash or mash and the fries were underwhelming. The appetizers had two crab dishes perhaps a tuna poke or bacon slab would have been nice to have a variety.

Lovely dinner with friends . Our second visit to this restaurant and were very much looking forward to returning , however, this time my filet mignon lacked taste and for the first time I had to ask for a salt shaker. My husband had the aged rib eye and had the same comment. The steaks were just barely warm. Otherwise, we had a good time with our friends. Staff very friendly and attentive.

 (Chicago)·Dined on December 3, 2017

Food and drinks were great, our waitress was a "ghost", no where to be found until we needed the check and that was a mess of it's own.

2 issues:

1st issue - We ordered the dry aged for two at medium plus, one side was cooked well and melted in your mouth, the other side was hard to chew and almost to the point of not a good cut of meat. Too bad we couldn't tell anyone since the before-mentioned waitress was nowhere to be found.

2nd issue - I had a $150 gift card to use before final processing, somehow they ran the gift card, but still charged my card for the full $350+ bill and never accounted for the gift card. Waitress was not "all there" and her explanation was BS.

Probably won't go back to this place, a shame because the food was overall good.

Seated 30 minutes late and did not take our order until an hour after our original rezzie time. Wine list does not have enough lower-priced options. Waiter forgot our order (apologized for losing his papers), then delivered a fried potatoes we did not order and told us it was on the House. It wasn’t - it was on the bill. Great food, but not worth the wait, money, or frustration. Paid the tab and left. Will not return.

Had a b-day lunch w/ some of my favorite colleagues. We had oysters, bubbles & I had a steakburger while others had steak or fish. Food & service were excellent. Def one of the best burgers I had in NYC (same is true for both of Quality's other NYC outposts Quality Italian & Quality Eats). Not another stuffy NYC steakhouse--great spot w/ great food.

 (Jacksonville)·Dined on November 30, 2017

Enjoyed as always until it was time for the check. We were 3 couples, wanted separate checks, and our waiter was not happy about that. Said he didn’t know what each couple ordered, which was ridiculous, and we were willing to assist him. He was not interested in our help and shortly returned with 3 checks, none of which were correct.
We finally had to go with one check split 3 ways as we had Theatre tickets and had to leave.
This was not fair to everyone in our party because of the difference in our orders.
As I said , we all enjoyed our meal very much, have been there many times, but our waiter had a real attitude!!!

Back to Quality Meats and it didn't disappoint. So glad we chose this place to celebrate two birthdays (his 50th, my 46th). Waiter was on point, helpful but not overwhelming. It was a fun evening with great food and wine. He had the filet special with mushrooms. I kicked myself for not ordering it myself. Dessert was brought out for both of us with candles. Nice touch. The sticky toffee pudding was one of the best I have ever had. Thanks for making our night.

The overall experience was zero: too many tables per foot square, no intimacy, the service was poor and way too fast- we did not have time to finish our first plate as the meat was waiting on the a side table getting cold, waiters were feeding us more than they were helping us enjoying our evening. The menu was not respected: a green salad without any of the ingredients on the menu (the green godess) for $17. I had to send it twice as I have asked for the dressin on the side, which was not respected. The overall price was outrageous given the lack of professionalism in the service. We paid less at the gastronomic restaurant “Les Nomades” in Chicago for the same number/type of plates and the experience was incomparable: we were taken care of, not just fed and billed.
