I really do not understand the good reviews this restaurant has received.
I am an avid restaurant goer, and this is the first time I have left a table with the food PAID and barely touched.
First they brought a small starter that looked

Tried the Restaurant Week menu.\r

I had the scallops with creamed corn, hanger steak with brandied cherries and coffee and doughnuts ice cream. My friend had the steak tartare, baby back ribs and the mint chocolate chunk ice

At first i think their name is corny. However, after I finally made a visit here, I realized the name says it all. Everything here is quality, really.

Their house bread is very special and it actually looks like a butt! It has 4 halves

this is an excellent modern NYC steakhouse. the portions are fairly big and the food is excellent. it is a fairly priced steakhouse. a bottle of wine, one appetizer (raw oysters), 2 entrees and a dessert for about $200. that's still a pretty good deal for midtown manhattan.

First, I had a reservation and upon arrival, I could not figure out what sins I could have committed in my life to get such a terrible table for 2; they squeezed me between two other tables and my elbows were literally almost scraping those of the people dining next to me. I could not even hold a conversation with my wife.. Nest was a Caesar salad that LITERALLY LOOKED AND TASTED like it was the pre-made bagged salad and dressing that you get at the supermarket!! It was $13 - $14 and I couldn't get past 3 bites! The bone in ribeye has gotten smaller than my last visit here over a year ago! It could be me, but I'm convinced that this restaurant's strategy is to keep or raise prices, but cut quality, portions, etc in attempt to boost margins in these difficult times. My bill w/ tax / tip was $250 and we did not even have a bottle of wine ?? I had a few beers and my wife had a glass of wine. Lastly, our waiter was pushy, cold and rushed us. In conclusion, this place needs to do a better job on its food or else folks like me will never go back; I personally will never. There are way too many choices of high quality steakhouses in NYC ?? for these prices, if you push customers too far, they will vote with their feet and wallets?

Pros: Hard to come up with some

Cons: Recession have this place cutting costs / quality???

I would give this restaurant 1 star if it weren't for their awesome appetizers, side dishes, and ice cream. If they had the steaks to match, that would be easily a 4-5 star restaurant. However, the filet was chewy and poorly prepared. The inside was raw (I ordered medium) but the outside was already so charred and chewy that I didn't dare send it back for further brutality. If you've already been to the other high end steak houses in NYC several times and want to try something new, go to Quality Meats. But if you want something for a special occasion or if you're not yet tired of the other NYC steak houses, skip Quality Meats. You'll find better filets at Outback.
If you do go, skip the Parmesan fries, they're nothing special. The corn creme brulee was great. I cannot recommend the crab cake strongly enough. Best part of the meal.

Cons: Poor quality filet

I found our waitress just short of rude.
She seemed openly annoyed by my questions and impatient.
And I most especially didn??t like them putting their hands on
the top of my glass to make room on the table.
Not only did we get their germy hands on the top of our glasses ?
they mixed up the glasses so that we had to guess which one was which.
I also never saw the wine bottle nor the water bottle to see if we
had drank it all. That is unusual.
My salad was nearly impossible to eat in the bowl that it came in.
The chopped salad was probably fine .. but there was no way to cut
up the lettuce in the bowl and it was much too large to get into
my mouth. I just gave up and quit trying to eat it.
My steak had virtually no flavor. If I didn??t have the au poivre sauce,
I wouldn??t have eaten it.
The bread was excellent and the parmesan fries were good and the
blueberry tart was good, asparagus was okay ? not great.
Even if my filet would have been cooked properly ? it would have still been
the worst filet that I even had a nice restaurant. In fact, the Longhorn
Restaurant chain filet??s are even better than what we ate at Quality Meats.
Definitely not worth what we paid for the dinner.
Didn??t hate it ? but did hate that it cost so much for such an average dinner

Pros: Nice vibe

The good: Cool ambience
The bad: 4 of us just went there last night. 3 of us ordered the veal chop (all medium rare). When we finally got them, all 3 were cooked medium well to well done so we sent them back.
The ugly: 30-40 mins later after we got round 2, they were all "rare", barely edible and had to be the 3 fattiest pieces of meat that they probably carved away for the night and labeled as "not for use". We learnt our lesson and should have stuck with the well done original portions that we received. Abruch!

Had a blast here! All the fixings of a top-notch NYC steakhouse, a butcher who knows what he's doing, but a relaxing laid-back attitude that makes you feel right at home ie: PBR tall cans on the drinks menu. Met up here with a bunch of old college friends and we were back to our old shenanagins in no time. Ample seating and good spacing gives you the comfort to speak freely without thinking that half of manhattan is listening in to your conversation.

Quality meats is simply fantastic, from the bone in rib-eye to the milk chocolate torte with homemade vanilla ice cream there is nothing bad about this restaurant. the General Manager Mauriceo is the perfect manager for any restaurant to have and the staff is great. they make a homemade steak sauce right at your table that you can't stop eating, it is good on everything including the steaks but the steaks are perfectly cooked and seasoned so you might just want to dip your rolls into it. our suggestion is not to waste your money on any other restaurant this have everything you could possibly want.

Came here for son's 17th birthday since he's a steak lover. Food was very good and good atmosphere for conversation. Were told that ingredients for salad came from Chef's garden.

I was a bit nervous eating here, given the recent bad reviews, but my friend was treating me for my bday so what did i have to lose? Anyways, so glad I picked it cuz I loved it! I thought everything was great! Decor was fine, service was nice, and food was great.

I had the crab & avocado for appetizer, they give you 3 and it was good. My friend had the bone marrow and liked it too. For entree I had the filet mignon, medium rare, and thought it was tender and flavorful (more so with the sauce, gives it a lil spicy peppery kick). We also had corn creme brulee and edamame as sides, both also very good. I've been to other steak places where the meat is either too dry or its not cooked to the right way you ask for it, etc. I had no problems here. I would def come back to have steak again, or try other things on the menu.

Totally recommend it !!

I spent a week trying to find a restaurant for a special occasion. After asking around, a few friends suggested Quality Meats. While none of them had actually eaten at the restaurant, they had all heard good things. After showing up for an 8:00pm seating, the waitress immediately began to try and turn us over, trying to take our wine, appetizer and main dish orders simultaneously. Apparently she didn't recognize the restaurant was half empty (on a Friday night at 8:00pm this should have immediately tipped us off as to the experience we were about to have). When the waitress brought the wine to the table she did not ask the person who ordered to taste the wine, instead just picked someon at random from the table (this was repeated with the next bottle as well). We then had to either flag down someone to fill our glasses or just take care of our own glasses. The oysters and appetizers were good, especially the gnocchi and cheese. Of the four diners, we all ordered a different steak, but the result was the same. We were all disappointed. The steaks were mis-cooked and the flavor was non-existent. Leaving half-eaten steaks must be normal here though, because even though we were seated immediately in front of the kitchen entrance in a high traffic area (unclear why they would place us here because as I mentioned the restaurant was half-empty), not one employee seemed to take notice and ask if anything was wrong. We have all had a bad steak, or poor service, at other NYC steakhouses, but what is unique about Quality Meats and noteworthy was the ability to combine BOTH bad food AND poor service.

First time I've posted a restaurant review, but had to comment on a generally negative experience I had here. It was especially disappointing because the dinner was to commemorate an important occassion and I'd spent some time thinking about where to go.

Though no aspect of the meal was outright awful, the food was mediocre (despite the name, the steak was decidedly low-quality; at a table of four guys, no one finished their meat) and the service was weak, as our waitress was disorganized and forgetful. The ambiance had the potential to be great, but the restaurant's lack of a clear dress code found well-dressed diners seated next to tables wearing cargo shorts and birkenstocks. I hate to be a snob, but for the cost of this meal ($700 for a party of four), I think diners definitely deserve more.

If you're up for a pricey steak, I'd recommend BLT Steak or Wolfgang's - Quality Meats has a long way to go before it can compete - or justify its price tag.

This was the most disappointing NYC steakhouse experience that I have had in my 15+ years living in Manhattan. I got the bone in sirloin prepared medium which was delivered to our table medium rare. The steak was bland tasting with no flavor and no crispiness on the outside. One of our other dining companions got the 3 mini filets each with a different sauce preparation. These were ordered medium as well and arrived at the table medium well and looked like they had been sitting under a heat lamp for 15+ minutes -- a grayish tint to the filets. The other problem we had was that we ordered an $80 bottle of wine and had to pour all but the first glass ourselves while at least 4 wait staff members lingered in our dining section. I expected at least good steaks from this place as it is part of the Smith & Wollensky family (you can never tell about side dishes - they were ok here - especially the Gnocchi & Cheese and edamame) but they weren't in the same class as Sparks, Luger's, Keens, Capital Grille, Ben Benson's or Striphouse. The homemade ice creams were excellent.

I love this restaurant. The steaks are great, fun appetizers, attentive staff... I've had a better time when it was a group of people, rather than just two, as the tables for two are a bit cramped. Last time we went it was a birthday celebration, I told them in advance and they served us generous glasses of a very good sparkling Italian wine, gratis, as soon as we were seated. Very nice touch. I'm not sure I can wholeheartedly recommend the marrow, though. I was excited to try them but after a few tastes it just seemed overwhelmingly greasy and I actually felt a little sick to my stomach. But aside from that, great restaurant. Really fun place to take visitors to NYC!

Our server started us off with some complimentary Proseco. We then followed it up with great (very generous) gin martinis. The oysters were presented beautifully and were fresh and delicious. Our steaks (filet & rib steak) were cooked perfectly! All along the service could not have been better! I would highly, highly recommend this steakhouse.

First time to this restaurant and certainly my last. Was with a group of 4, 2 ordered the rib eye--described as the house specialty--one sent his back, the other told me afterwards he would have done the same but didn't want to add to the waiter's grief....my bone-in sirloin was good, not great, and the other ordered the seared three filets, which was good. Seafood appetizer was decent, but no one liked the oysters or clams, and at a $150 (including 2 large stone crab claws) we felt a bit short changed. Service wasn't like others have described, we were seated at 7:30 and didn't get a check until almost 11:00 (had to flag down someone to clear our table and get the check). Wine list was pretty much either top shelf or garbage. Total bill for 4 with 2 bottles of wine at $100 each, seafood platter, 3 sides, 2 bottles of water ($9.50 a bottle?) and coffee for 4 was $650 before tip. Forget it, try BLT Prime, Dylan Prime, Sparks, Craftsteak, even Del Friscos for a much better meal and maybe even save a few bucks.

Was fortunate enough to experience Quality Meats last Thursday. I have been to quite a few restaurants for client dinners, and I have to say this was one of my favorites. We even spotted Jennie Garth dining with her family the table across from us. The servers were top notch and knew everything about the menu and wine list. The servers are very attentive and we did not have to ask them to come over even once. They were always there ready to assist. The apps and sides are to die for, as well as the desserts. Of course the steak was great too. I ordered the In-Bone Sirloin and it was very tasty and cooked to my specs. We had a 6pm reservation and it was pretty empty then, but by 8pm the place was buzzin. You have to order the corn creme brule and the gnocchi with cheese. We were there with 8 people and everyone loved their dishes. You will love this place!!

I had an amazing time at Quality Meats. The best part of the place wasn't even the steaks, it was the server who was nothing but sweet from start to finish. Mary smiled and knew about every item on the food and wine list. From someone who has been dining in New York since the early 90's Mary was the best server I've ever had. Bar none. Thank you so much Mary. See you soon

Really superior food in a funky, romantic atmosphere. The design elements of the restaurant are innovative conversation starters. Guys--this is the place to take a date if you want a fantastic steak in a setting she'll be impressed with. The crab and avocado was luscious, filet mignon perfect and crispy potatoes out of this world. Coconut cream dessert was also luscious. The only thing that missed were the asparagus. We are on a NYC steak quest and this is by far the best in food and atmosphere we've found. It's expensive, but so special it's worth it.

If you are tired of the same mundane steakhouse feel and look, you can change it up and go to New York City's best steakhouse. Quality Meats is an amazing dining experience. The Neuvo Chic setting and a good looking crowd only adds to the fun. The appetizers and side dishes are amazing, and of course the steak is cooked to perfection. No one will walk out with an empty stomach for the portions are huge. Highly recommend for those looking for a new kind of steakhouse experience with the best steaks in the city. Additionally, the service is top notch. Make sure to get a reservation, for tables are hard to come by. Enjoy

I came to eat here with a couple of friends, and it was fantastic. The ambience is great, with dim lighting and the place is beautifully decorated with wine bottles everywhere, and the food is absolutely amazing. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly and the sides were amazing, I particularly enjoyed the spicy fries with parmesan cheese sprinkled on them. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

I'm generally not a fan of the latest trend of over-hyped steakhouses, but there's no denying that the meat here is great. Nicely charred and thick, just like a Smith and Wollensky or Luger's. Sides were good, though nothing really stood out. A nice touch is that they mix the steak sauce tableside. Downsides are the bizarre touches like putting tall boys of PBR on the menu. Yes, I get that they're trying to be ironic, but seriously, when a place charges $42 per steak a la carte and $16 for a single crab cake appetizer, is anyone going to order a PBR in a can? Mark-ups on wines are criminal. $180 for a Jordan Cabernet? This wine sells for $60. All in all though, it's a good place to go for a special occasion or if you're a steak aficionado and it's an even better place to go if it's on company dime.

Pros: Great steak, nice atmosphere

Cons: Prices

This place came recommended to me by someone who writes for Gourmet Magazine, so I had to check it out. I was not disappointed. The atmosphere is different than other steakhouses and had a warm feel to it. There were a lot of women here, which is out of the ordinary for high-end steakhouses. The hostess and wait staff were all helpful and friendly, and it wasn?t overcrowded, which made it easy to walk around. The Charcuterie Bar was phenomenal for appetizers, especially the cheddar and beef. The bar prices are a lot more reasonable than other steakhouses, and the wine list had good choices. Plus, they serve PBRs! The steak was amazing here? the T-Bone had tremendous flavor and the Rib Eye was perfectly cut. The steak here was definitely up there with the best of them. The side dishes were really good as well, especially the mashed potatoes. Dessert here was excellent as well, with in house ice cream. I recommend the ?coffee and donut? flavor. I will definitely come back to this place again? better overall than any other establishment.

I went here with VERY high expectations, looking to pick apart a new addition to the coveted ny steak scene. Upon arrival, we were greeted so warmly by the down-to-earth host and maitre'd, Ryan. We were originally going to be seated upstairs, but as I noticed that the first (best) table in the house was not taken I asked if we could grab it-- no attitude, just great service with a smile. The appetizers were great, as were the Oysters with the "special" sauces. The steak came and didn't even need their made-at-the-table sauce as it was cooked to utter perfection. Overall, I LOVED Quality Meats, more so than any other steakhouse, including BLT, its obvious competitor. I will be back soon, and I must add that the ambiance was PERFECT, not overly or underly "done", just perfect. BRAVO!

***********
Since writing the above review, I feel compeled to edit it after being back to QM about ten times since. I don't know how to put it any simpler, so I'll say it as it is: Quality Meats is the best steakhouse in New York and my new favorite restaurant. Bravo Stillman! More must try's: Pearl Onions in Balsamic, Three Filets, Ceasar Salad (best I've ever had), Ice cream, apple tart (org*smic), etc. etc. etc.

The bartenders are the best! And I can't wait for them to bring back the Key Lime Martini from last summer. I had dinner there again last night, and decided to write a review because it was very good. Had the rib steak, cooked perfectly and no grissle. Love the made-at-the-table steak sauce. I am officially in love with the gnocchi in cheese sauce and the cippolini onions. On previous visits, we've ordered food at the bar - great selections of cheeses to go with the great wine list. And although no room for dessert last night, based on previous visits - the pastry chef is awesome - especially the homemade ice creams. Excellent place, will definitely go back.

I have NO idea how people could say the service was poor here. I felt like I was being waited on hand and foot! The wine was delicious, the appetizer of meat and cheese was fantastic, my filet was cooked to perfection, and the sides were delicious. Now I'm not a big gnocchi fan; in fact, I hate it. My dining companion had ordered it as a side. I decided to try it after he said how amazing it was. It was delicious! I couldn't believe it. I highly recommend getting the Corn Creme Brulee as a side as well. I also was surprised at the cost. For two people to dine it was only $180 including two glasses of wine, 3 sides, 2 filets, and 2 desserts. The appetizer and 3 glasses of wine at the bar came to around $50. Much cheaper than I had expected! This was such a lovely dining experience and I cannot wait to return!

My dining partner and I arrived 15 minutes early to a welcoming group of hostesses and maitre d'. Although we were early, we were seated right away. Unfortunately, the pleasantries ended there. To be fair, the food on its own was good, except for the gnocchi & cheese which was so salty it put hair on my chest.
Though we had 3 different servers, we could never find any of them to take our drink or food orders. It took over 20 minutes to get our drinks and we continuously found ourselves with empty glasses - not the festive Christmas meal I had envisioned! We were finally served drinks and had to try and grab the waiter's attention to place an order for appetizers. We got the oysters - accompanied by 3 lovely and interesting sauces - a mint and cilantro "aioli-like" sauce, cocktail sauce and a yuzu mignonette- all gorgeous! and the charcuterie platter was great.
Nobody bothered to check in on us or remove empty glasses and when we finally were able to flag someone down, we ordered the filet mignon and bone-in ribeye along with the gnocchi and cheese and corn creme brulee sides. The corn was sweet, crunchy, creamy and delicious and the meat really was terrific.
Dessert was pecan bourbon chocolate pie and a scoop of gingerbread ice cream that came with the most adorable gingerbread man atop the scoop! Fantastic.
When the bill came, we had been charged for a drink that we did not order and when we explained to the waiter that we hadn't ordered it, he in turn said, " let me explain something to YOU." Up until that point, we had just laughed about the lack of service. After being rubbed the wrong way, I decided I wouldn't recommend it to friends.
Bottom line- if you like bad service and paying $300 for it, enjoy. There are plenty of other places in town with great food and good service!

My original review stands below (in case CS decides to remove it when I post my update).
Bottom line: I went to QM recently and made the horrific mistake of grabbing a potato chip from a large open contained by the bar. I thought it was a bar item! Dumb mistake. But my waiter acted like I'd dishonored his family. Cold service from then on. This place is very expensive. Bad service is simply intolerable. Shape up, QM. The cute lightbulbs only go so far. - JF

I'm not always the most positive gourmand (just see some of my other reviews), but this place deserves raves. Having eaten half the menu there this week, I found nothing lacking. The decor is fabulous, with ubiquitous dimly lit bare light bulbs ensconced in artful iron couplings hanging from the high ceilings. The bar serves an excellent martini. Service is tops. The wine list is extensive without being overwhelming, and includes several price points for the cost conscious. We were not, thank god, and I must agree with the menu that the Highlands 2002 Cabernet was ?exquisite.? We began with a mix of meats and cheeses from the Charcuterie Bar, which were divine. The colossal crabmeat was good, but my dining companion informs me it was not up to Joe's Stone Crab standards. The Seared Diver Scallops were incredible, garnished with softened Grape Nuts (the cereal!) which tasted much much better than it sounds. The Crab cakes were perfect. We split the Three Filets and each was amazing. Crispy friend potatoes arrived as described, but were hard to finish (we ate a LOT for two people), and the cheddar grits were an incredible invention...by far the item most likely to drag me back. We went with ice cream scoops for desert. Mine was cookies and cream and it did not disappoint. My friend was wise enough to bring a Raspberry Passion Fruit Tart back to his wife, and I am told she found it to be superb. This is the new place; go while it's still amazing. In New York dining, as in war, all glory is fleeting.

Overall the serice was excellent, food was good, but nothing to RAVE about, not disapointed but also not impressed either. The only thing this place differeniates itself with in the DECOR. And watch out for the $$$$$.....A two person dinner with a $60 bottle of wine, came out to $360 with tip.

Awful steaks, "lobster" is two small lobster tales for the price of over $40. Food at it's best luke warm, luck or very poor service, very noise, little or no vegetables. Very expensive with no reason. Steak house with no knowledge how to make a good steak. For your meat lovers -Avoid at all cost.

Weekdays seem to be the busiest for this restaurant. Weekends are the best time to go. The food is more than impressive. The charcuterie meat/cheese plates come from some divine salumeria in NYC. The prosciutto is ethereal and the accompanying meats are just as delectable. The Cheeses are fun too. i think there is a real shortage of 'quality' cheese plates in the city and QM rates high on the upper eschelon. If you go for fish the crabcake and seared scallop apps are the way to go. the oysters are sub-par. The wine-list is wonderfully put together and the sommelier will guide you in the right direction if you need it. The 'Three Filets', the massive Ribeye and Bone in Sirloin can't be beat and are everything you would expect from a Smith & Wollensky venture. The fire stoked lamb for 2 is probably underrated at this uber-steakhouse but shouldn't be overlooked. Its one of the best tasting lambs i've eaten (and i'm damn important) and accompanied with the clandestine sides of cheese grits and an artichoke/olive/tomato ragout that pair all too well. Other knock-your-socks off sides are the gnocchi and cheese, edamame and potato pancakes.
Since you will be overstuffed by the time you finish your meal, get the chamomile tea to aid in digestion and make room for dessert. Simply put, the ice creams are handmade and addictive. I'm dying to take a pint home and devour it watching a movie on a rainy night. The staff was doting on the 2 nights I was there, both Saturday evenings.

I went to this place couple days ago, and really dissappointed, we been set to the table which was very tiny, food was very awful, ribsteak had a big chunk of FAT, instead of meat, and bit cold, couldn't eat it, Big FAT so disgusting, Halibut was so so, drinks was good, servise was annoing, we just came and they want to move us , in order to turn the table, such bad experience. We don't know what for we paid for?
Not recommended there better choises in the city

We tried this new restaurant for the first time last night, and found it to be excellent.
The steak was the best I've had in about six months, and that compares to Ben Benson's, Del Friscos, Smith & Wollensky, AND Peter Lugers.
"Charcuterie Bar," is a decadent pleasure, good sides and starters, and Love the steak sauce freshly prepared table side.

BRAVO!

QULAITY MEATS IS BY FAR THE WORST OF THE SMITH AND WOLLESKY RESTURANT GROUP. WE HAD A RESERVATION FOR 5 AT 8, WE WERE SEATED AT 845. THE STEAKS WERE ALL OVER COOOKED, THE SERVICE WAS BAD. WE LEFT THERE LAST NIGHT AND ALL SHARED A PIZZA........... SO MANY BETTER CHOICES HERE IN NY.

Overall, cool interior design, very solid steaks (try the "three filets"), and the corn creme brulee and cheesy gnocchi were terrific sides you don't find at any other steakhouses. Service was a bit leisurely, but would definitely would go back.

Didn't know what to expect from this place when my friend suggested it. In general, I think steak is good but all the steakhouses kind of blend together in my experience. Not this place!!! Not only was the steak possibly the best I've *ever* had, but the sides and appetizers were absurdly good (try the gnocchi, marrow, or crab cake). The atmosphere is incredibly cool and different, not stodgy or testosterone-laden like other steak joints, and my non-steak-eating friends were just as enthusiastic about their meals. It's pricy for sure, but definitely worth it for special occasions. I've caught myself thinking about the corn creme brulee at least three times since I was there. Can't wait for an excuse to go back.

While I may have trouble remembering the odd name, Quality Meats was a wonderful experience last night. The salads were a stand out as were the top rate steaks. Order as many sides as you can muster. Corn creme brulee, fries, asparagus and creamed spinach souffle are musts. Try as many desserts as humanly possible. The service was great, the decor was great, the food was great. What more can a diner possibly ask for?

The industrial design for this place was amazing! Very different from anything else uptown. I thought the food was excellent and the desserts were incredible. This place was sexy enough for a date, but laid back enough to go with a bunch of guys. A real winner!

I would not recommend going to this place if you are looking for a good steak. It has a good ambience but that's about it. The service was average. Do not order the three fillets, one steak has a not very tasty sauce, and the other two are barely eatable.

I rarely venture uptown for dinner, but from the moment I stepped in to Quality Meats, it was certainly worth the trip!! The restaurant is beautiful - every detail attended to. The people working there could not be friendlier and more accomodating from the host, to the bartender to every server. And the food - I am still dreaming of my dinner - a steak prepared three different ways. I could have ordered it all over again! I loved my dining experience at Quality Meats and will certainly be back. Perfecto!!!

Ate at Quality Meats and had an overall fantastic experience. The setting is very cool and seductive (same design team as Public and Stanton Social). And the food is refined and delicious. Steaks are expertly prepared and the raw bar was fresh and excellent. The sides are wild and amazing - corn creme brulee, creamed spinach souffle, gnocchi and cheese...you get the point. It's a really fun night out (great beer list, too!). Well worth it, I'm excited to have this one around.
