Corn Crème Brûlée
I must say, I love everything about this place except that they didn't deliver the food as requested or promised. I asked for a healthy (no butter) fish and veggie and the waiter said it would not be a problem. Yet both were smothered in butter and the response was, "there is a reason we don't put calories on the menu"
Quality Meats used to be our favorite place for steak, but we were really disappointed by our latest visit. It was the first time we had been back since we moved downtown, and we went with friends as a last hurrah before they move out of the city.
The service was very odd. It was unclear who our server was, because two men kept checking in on us but never seemed to communicate with each other. And, rather than feeling like we were getting extra attention, it felt like we were getting the bare minimum. When I explained that our friends hadn’t been before and asked if we could get some recommendations since we hadn’t visited in a while, the response was totally unhelpful. Rather than walking us through the menu with suggestions, the waiter highlighted two sides and suggested that the four of us share a porterhouse and a ribeye. A few minutes later, the second man approached the table as if he was completely unaware someone else had just checked in with us, and his explanation consisted of just reading through each category. For the rest of the meal, there seemed to be no communication between them; it felt like deja vu whenever they switched.
The food was good, but overall not as good as usual. Gone was the monkey pull-apart bread to start, which was just sad. The crab cake was average, although the bacon was great as always. Our friends split the porterhouse, which was sloppily plated, I had the filet with truffle butter service, and my husband got the ribeye. The truffle butter took so long to arrive that I flagged down one of our waiters, who said he “believed” his associate was following with it. I continued to wait. By the time it arrived, the steak had cooled enough that the butter didn’t really melt through as it should have. The corn brûlée was a little off the usual texture and the crispy potatoes weren’t quite hot. Similarly, all the desserts just seemed a little off-not bad, but not worth getting excited about.
I hope things turn back around.
Essen war wirklich sehr gut. Restaurant voll. Lautstärke unerträglich.
It was my sons 10th Birthday, everyone made him feel very special. The service, food & ambiance was fantastic. I would highly recommend for a memorable night out in the city.
Glad to hear you all had a great time & he was very handsome in his suit! We hope to see you all agin soon!
Dinner was amazing and fantastic service by Mike. Had a table upstairs. Restaurant was happily busy. Steaks were perfectly cooked. Great menu, nice specials. Very attentive service. Wonderful experience. Every bit as good as pre-pandemic if not better. Kudos and thank you!
Get together with good friends
Justin and Jairo were superb! Sat in a nice booth on the first floor, had the best time. QM is definitely the way to go for a great meal. The lobster toast was the star of the show, we ordered seconds! Everything was done to perfection and with lots of love.
Great meal at Quality Meats for my mom’s 69th birthday. Very happy with the service and food quality. Absolutely delicious! Thank you, Quality Meats.
That is amazing to hear you all had a fun time for your mothers birthday! We hope to see you all again soon!

Top Class Service, great food, superb evening out
The food and service are unquestionably exceptional, but the prices are way out there, too.
Awesome! I will come back soon!
Waters at the bar were servicing us.
My wife and I were out celebrating 15 years. So I reviewed a bunch of steak houses and came across this and after reading the reviews rsvp. Very happy with the choice. No wait time, excellent service, food on point. Highly recommend this place!!!
Highest quality ingredients from steak to salads and vegetables. Everything cooked to perfection with complementary sauces and spices.
My bf and I went there to celebrate his birthday! The drinks tasted great. I got a glass of Malbec and my bf got an old fashion. The ambiance was romantic and everyone who served us was respectful and friendly. Our food was delicious and we enjoyed our time there! Would definitely visit again.
Our experience at Quality Meats was outstanding. From the cocktails, to the steak, to the sides (Cream Corn Brûlée and Cheese Gnocchi) and dessert (marshmallow ice cream) - it all came together wonderfully! The private outdoor heated seating added that extra special touch for us. Staff was attentive and helpful!
Thank you so much for the kind words! We are glad to hear that even as the temperatures plummet our cabins are still very cozy. Looking forward to see you all again soon!
Be prepared to spend, but everything is very tasty and there are some unique gems in a chic space.
One of the Best dinners we have had. The steaks were fantastic and service was impeccable
Food was delicious but what made it was the perfect service, loved it! Thank you
This place went all out on every aspect. Service was top-notch from the hostess to the sommelier to the serving staff. This place is serious about their food and service. Highly recommend for date night, business dinner, special occasion, etc.
Had a delicious dry aged bone in sirloin, yorkshire creamed spinach and crispy potatoes. Service was excellent. Would definitely return.
One of the best meals I’ve had. It wasn’t just the steak. The service, the drinks, the sides, and the dessert were all top notch. 10/10
Great steak place atmosphere, one of our favorites for the NY Strip!
Excellent food. Excellent service. Don’t pass on this place.
I’ve been dining at Quality Meats regularly for years and it has been my favorite steak place but last night’s dinner was a big disappointment. All four orders of rib steaks were charred to a burnt crisp and our server was very curt. The only good thing was the sommelier was very nice and we loved the new wine he recommended. He was the only reason we didn’t leave upset.
I am so sorry to hear about your experience but I do appreciate the feedback and will absolutely share with our Culinary Team.

This is a neighborhood favorite. The food is consistently amazing. The back back ribs appetizer the meat just falls off the bone its delicious. The hanger steak with brandied cherries is tasty with the spicy Brussel sprouts!
Incredible food. Best butternut squash soup I’ve ever had. Steak tartare and porterhouse steak were phenomenal. Cool, hip vibe. Highly recommend.
Took my friends here for the first time and they loved every second. Baron was very attentive and provided excellent service for us. The Corn Cremé Brûlée is to DIE for. Can’t go wrong with it.
Great new year eve party.
Everything was wonderful, from start to finish. I highly recommend it. Not only the steaks were amazing, the fish was too.
Thank you so much for the kind words, Michelle! Glad to hear that we were able to make your birthday a special one! We hope to see you again soon!
