Quality Meats is a contemporary restaurant that serves a rustic New American menu.
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. The Quality Meats chefs are Craig Koketsu (Lespinasse, Stars) as executive chef and Cory Colton (Lespinasse, St.Regis) on pastry. The restaurant has a warm industrial atmosphere, created by award-winning AvroKO and features intimate dining areas, a comfortable bar area with well-stocked charcuterie bar.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

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.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

From start to finish, Quality Meats provided a perfect business lunch! I was greeted immediately as I waked in by the friendly hostess. I had a soda at the bar while I waited for my guests to arrive. The bartender was also friendly, attentive and professional. Then the wait staff was perfect as was the food. The lunch filet and grasshopper dessert were both perfect! Excellent meal and experience.

My family had dinner here on Tuesday evening, 4/18/18, to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday.

We had reservations at 5pm and it is important to know that is the first seating so if you arrive before 5pm, the restaurant is not open but you can sit in the bar area and enjoy a cocktail. They did seat us promptly at 5pm.

We sat on the second floor and had an excellent server. The dining room was larger and beautiful but the lighting was pretty low and made reading the menu a bit of a challenge.

The wine list is extensive as well as expensive (even for wine by the glass). They did offer a pretty cool option of ordering a half carafe or bottle from a huge bottle which did offer a better value (I thought) and an experience.

For dinner, we ordered steaks, a variety of them, and all were awesome, cooked exactly as ordered: medium was medium, medium rare was medium rare, etc. You would expect that to be the case for the prices being paid but I have eaten at some very high-end restaurants throughout NYC and this is not always the case and it is disappointing when it happens. NOT the case here, just perfect. We also ordered the Waffle fries, the crispy fries and the gnocchi's, no greens. They were delicious as well and portions were fine for the 5 of us.

For dessert, we ordered the mint chocolate chip cake and they surprised my daughter with a Happy Birthday plate with marshmallow ice cream. That was also amazing and very generous of the staff.

Overall, this is one of the finest dinners I have ever been to. If you are looking for a high-end NYC steakhouse experience, I would highly suggest Quality Meats. Just make sure to bring your wallet b/c it is not cheap but with that said, it is awesome.

We had an exceptional meal at Quality Meats. The bacon peanut butter jalapeno appetizer was amazing. The steak was flavorful and Incredibly tender, we highly recommend the parmesan waffle fries and grilled asparagus. The wine list is extensive and Cocktails were delicious. This is a loud, high energy restaurant which is not what we usually enjoy, but we will definitely go back.

Though expensive for every day dining, when you want a steak that won’t disappoint this is the place to go. Everything would be perfect except the hostesses need more customer service training. They are your first point of contact when you arrive at the restaurant and therefore can set the tone of the dining experience. This is about the 3 rd time I have come within the past year and not happy with the hostess nor their greeting. The attitude can be left outside on the curb.

Lovely welcome, all steaks high quality and cooked to perfection - exactly as requested. Sauces a bit uninspiring, steak sauce ok, poivre sauce pretty gloopy and reduced too much but only minimal used as an accompaniment so it didn’t impact on the steak which was the star of the show. Sides of roasted potatoes and broccoli and cheese bites were ok. Quality meats indeed.... but perhaps need bit more attention to accompaniments. In Scotland, perhaps we are too used to steaks, sauces, sides, including high quality fresh vegetables, all being equally exceptional.....not just the steak. Would recommend though if in NYC.

It was a disaster from the beginning with the hostess you just decided to walk way ahead without evening letting us know to follow her. Totally rude!
Then the server we were assigned was completely unhelpful with the food, wine and clearing the table properly.
The most basic and fool proof thing to get at a steak house, especially one called “Quality Meats” is the filet minon but boy did they get it wrong! It had a very strange flavor and it had these tough parts and fat??!!! You’re supposed to be rewarded with a lovely tender cut of the tenderloin and it’s supposed to be tender!
Extremely disappointing meal! We will never go back here again.

We had high expectations for this restaurant - we went for our anniversary. However, the server was terrible. We had to ask for every little thing multiple times (menu, bread, water), and only saw our waiter twice the entire night. We felt like he wanted nothing to do with us and it set a bad tone for the night.

We were disappointed this, our third time at quality meats. We are adventurous and like to try house specials. The flavors were not palatable on a few of our choices to all three of us eating. We shared a Rib Steak, Bone in Filet and Tuna. The White asparagus special, none of us liked and we all really weren't crazy about the Tuna which is so unlike us. It wasn't busy but the service was lacking towards the end of our meal. After dinner drinks came after coffee and desserts were finished. Last two times were better could have just been an off night.

Great meal. Filets mignon (x2) were delicious. Ordered medium rare and served slightly more on the rare side (just an FYI for those of you who are particular). Service was very good, attentive but not overbearing. Our server topped off my wife with an “extra” pour of wine as opposed to having us order another glass-nice touch on his part. Would definitely go back.

Great steaks and special sauce like their sister restaurant, Quality Italian. Cool layout and nice wine list. Try the corn crem brûlée.
Knowledgeable and friendly servers who understood how you like your steaks prepared. No room for desert. Definitely one of the best steakhouses in NY.
