    Llegue después del teatro antes de mi reserva pero las hoostes al ver que venía solo me recibieron de mala gana mi chamarra y me dieron una mesa terrible junto a las escaleras pero no le di importancia ya que .solo quería cenar rico y con buen. ServicioPERO ya cuando me sirvieron mi entretiempo me di cuenta que estaba la puerta de servicio que se abrió unas 14 veces y si me queje para que tomaran nota de la mala actitud de las hoostes. Me ofrecieron un postre que no acepte, solo mencione que prestaran atención a la recepcion pero me hicieron favor de quitar cubiertos cargos de la cuenta lo que agradecí. Es un lugar que va a funcionar muy bien.

    There were plenty of hostesses but they couldn’t seem to seat people. If I am spending $450 for two to eat in an hour before a show I shouldn’t have to wait for 20 minutes to be seated. My table was empty. The hostess also was double masked, walked right past me barely audible who she is looking for. I had to stop her and ask her if it was me. Unnecessarily difficult.

    We were uncomfortable at our first table: too close to the next table. Our waiter did not flinch when we asked to be moved and sat us at a very roomy and comfy table immediately. The best French Onion Soup I have ever had, and I have had a lot! My guest's burger and frites were also delicious. We are definitely going back!

    We were seated promptly which was nice since we were making an 8:00 show. We split the crab cake which was crispy and delicious. Our entrees were the steak and frites and onion soup. The steak was cooked well and fries crispy like we like them. The onion soup looked better than it tasted. It wasn't bad - it just wasn't great. The service was wonderful, but the volume was SO loud we could hardly talk to each other. With so many wonderful restaurants in NYC we probably won't return to the Bistro.

    My reservation for 5 was for 8:00 we arrived at 7:45 and had to wait until 8:50 to be seated for dinner. The hostess staff was very curt and unwilling to offer any assistance, we were told that’s the way it is tonight. We did not did not have any food until 9:15 which was well past time where any in my party was able to enjoy it at quite a significant cost. What a disappointment and a ruined night.

    I’ve been to QB no less than 6 times in the last year and a half and its always been AMAZING. butter service is usually to die for, but everything was off last night. -Hair in the food- not just once, but twice!!! Said something the first time, didn’t mention it the second time, but it’s clear someone in the kitchen with blonde hair isn’t following health guidelines and it’s really gross. -Ordered the caviar dip - asked what was in it and was told it was a caviar with traditional layers of onion, chopped egg and a “creamy mousse layer- it was guacamole! Who ruins caviar with guacamole? That would have been a perfect dish if not for that. -Both steaks were completely over cooked, guest ordered medium (which I agree is wrong) but nonetheless it came very well done, outside of the fillet was hard and inedible. - we didn’t stick around for dessert - too grossed out by the hair. Halibut was the best dish of the night. **we usually come with more people and/or heavily drinking and run up a crazy tab, we had a light night and we think they were just annoyed because it wasn’t a big spend eve (don’t get it twisted the check was over 600 for four of us on a “light” night”) - we have always had a wonderful experience and have always been very excited to come back… but last night was way off and left us feeling like we won’t return. Super bummed.

    Disappointing overall dining experience. Dover Sole came out dry and appeared to have been frozen. Service was apathetic. Sole savior was the solid ambiance of the restaurant. It is all fixable but there are much better options out there. Given the usually very reliable experience of the Quality franchise of restaurants, I was surprised this came up so short.

    Overall a good experience - great location and good service , however could be improved in some points: -Had a reservation for 7:45 pm but only able to seat at 8:15 pm. Had to wait at a very crowded bar with limited seating. They can’t text when the table is ready so everyone has to wait inside to be called. It would be better to wait outside if that was an option. -Food was decent but definitely not worth the price. Ordered filet mignon (medium well) au poivre - very charred past medium well and poivre sauce no taste at all. Wife ordered the salmon which was undercooked - waiter said it could not be well done otherwise would result in a “too small” fillet. Fries were good. -Drinks a bit on the expensive side - $20 for a Moscow Mule.

    Great restaurant in the heart of NY, excellent food and service, prices are a bit higher on some dishes, although quality is awesome. Be sure you arrive on time and be ready to wait until your table is ready, usually crowded which forces staff to ask you wait till be called.

    Thanksgiving dinner was spectacular and our service was even better. We originally had a reservation for the outside pods, but after sitting there for 10 minutes, asked if we could move inside. They were very accommodating and sat us immediately inside. Butter service was great, Stone crab was expensive, but delicious. Branzino was perfectly cooked and the desserts were the perfect ending.
