Steakhouse
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.

I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. If you are going to celebrate an event, this is a good place to do it. They brought out a beautiful dessert for my husband's birthday and we were both very happy. The meat was seasoned well but a bit chewy. Again, great atmosphere for an event, plus the staff was very professional. I had a nice time.

Staff wasn’t very attentive for that price point.

We ordered three filets - black and blue, rare and medium rare. All were cooked to same temperature. Maybe medium rare but closer to medium.

It was a lovely evening. Sat close to our reservation time. All wait staff was professional and dining room staff quite helpful. Loved it all. We ordered the short ribs for two which while tasty wouldn’t get again. Too much work! Extensive wine list and drinks were well made. Definitely would recommend. If you want privacy though ask for table not in a row of diners.

I'm torn about Quality Meats. My review is a mixed bag. Food was excellent. Value is OK. It's high-end with high-end prices but is a bit overpriced relative to other similar fine dining. Service was good, but with an odd experience. Restaurant was notified that this was a milestone birthday celebration. There was no acknowledgement at all until after all dessert and coffee was consumed, which was oddly late in the process and wasteful since there was no point in bringing out a second round of dessert when the diners were already full.

Went for my boyfriends birthday and was disappointed that they didn’t have what we wanted (the short rib) they said they were sold out and it was only 7pm. The food that we did eat was amazing as always but I was disappointed. I had made reservations with specifics this was for a birthday and when we arrived we had to wait about 20 mins to be seated on a small person table in between a lot of other parties. I wanted and expected something more intimate since it was a special occasion. We couldn’t even hear each other talk. Once we tired ordering, they informed us they were “sold out” of the item we wanted on the menu. It was the reason we came so he was disappointed. Lastly, they did nothing at all special for his birthday. Meanwhile the table beside was getting compliments after compliments and they didn’t even offer a dessert.

Place was really cool
Inside. We where in and out in one hour, kind of quick. Ordered a medium porterhouse for two. Told waiter not medium rare. It came medium rare and precut . Not sure why chefs at steak houses like the steak rare, I want it medium, if they want it rare then they can buy the high price and eat it. Overall everything else was very good.

This was our third visit to Quality Meats - (all for a special occasion). The food is excellent however EXTREMELY expensive (dinner for four was $600.00)!

Our only other issue this time around was that we were seated in a corner which was extremely dark. Should we have the occasion to dine there again I would request that we not be seated there.

Excellent food and service - I had the diver sea scallops for an appetizer and followed with the bone in aged sirloin steak with the “twice baked potato” side - all were outstanding and cooked to perfection. The Old Fashioned cocktail with Whistle Pig Rye was great as well.... so good that I ordered two of them! However - bring your bank as this is an expensive meal for just one ..... total cost for the above was about $150.00 not including the 20% tip I left. Great food and experience at Quality Meats! A new favorite for my NYC visits.

Very underwhelmed. The food quantity is extremely lacking for the prices (I got the tomahawk chop) and and service was spotty at best. It was good but not anything you couldn’t find at any other steak house in New York. Will not be returning.

Steak was good. Sides were unimpressive. We wanted a Cabernet to go with our $67 steaks. The opening price point was in the $90s per bottle. Never heard of the producers, and I’m very familiar with California Cabs. Our server was not familiar with the wines. Not wanting to spend $300 to $500 for familiar names, we decided on a bottle for $100 and change. You would think in a NYC upscale restaurant a bottle of wine for $100 and change would be at least decent. It was a 2015 or 16. Loaded with tannin and not balanced. We complained but got no consideration. Had a tannin and bitter aftertaste well after the meal. Very disappointing

Don't let the name dissuade you, quality applies to more than the meat. Starting with the special bay scallops and crab with avocados, it was clear that freshness and taste are key. Our bone rib steak and filet were seasoned perfectly and full of flavor. We accompanied our steak with a beautiful red and the corn creme brulee and potato chips fried in duck confit. To end the meal, the pie for 2 and the toffee pudding was so good we had to have too much. All through the night AJ made it a great dining experience. Lastly, the restaurant is just classy.

Love Quality Meats. Dined early and service was great. However the ambiant music was way too loud and the music selected did not suit the high quality of food and service. Music should be in background not way out front. Difficult to hold conversation. And staff could be more professional in how they carry themselves, not dancing and joking once patrons arrive. This aspect was most disappointing for a restaurant at this price point.
