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.

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!

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.
