Great food, great service.

A very well-rounded, enjoyable experience. The hostess was friendly, the wait staff attentive, and the food delicious. And of course, AvroKO doesn't let you down with the decor/ambiance either. I'll definitely return.

Very expensive for what you get. Ordered the bass for 34$, which comes alone with no sides. It was the tiniest piece of fish i've ever seen and left me so hungry. My friend ordered a veal chop, for 40$, which she couldn't even cut thru because there was a large tendon running thru the center. when she sent it back to the kitchen, they told her that it was just how the piece of meat was but they could remove the tendon for her! when the removed it, there was hardly any meat remaining and she, too, was left hungry. We paid 12$ for each side dish, which were all so overly salty that we couldn't even eat them. Such a huge waste of money. Would never go back.
Quality Meats Indeed

I went here after I had an allergic reaction to too much salt so the Doctor told me, no added sodium in my diet. I told the wait staff of my condition and they were very helpful: offering changes to dishes, making sure I got what I wanted and avoiding a potentially disappointed patron. I ordered the fillet milgnon and with absolutely no sauce or garnish, it was on of the best pieces of meat I've in a long time. That is a testament to a restaurant ringing true to it's name. My friend got the side of corn pudding and it looked (and apparently tasted) amazing.
Elegant athmosphere, hearty food.

Traditional steakhouse meets uptown class. One cannot go wrong at Quality Meats; the service is seamless and attentive, without crossing into overbearing territory, the decor is lovely (I want a meat hook chandler!) and the food is on point. Nothing too fancy, but nothing too boring. Brought a friend from Kentucky who knows her steakhouses; she approved. They do my favorite steak, hanger, more than justice, served with a fresh cherry sauce in the summer. Unlike some meat-focused eateries, the chef does not ignore the salads or vegetable sides - while the list of options may be limited, they are all tasty. Keep in mind that most steakhouses cater to men when it comes to portion sizes, Quality Meats is no exception. Ladies, one steak easily feeds two, as done one salad, and the a la carte sides could serve 3 or 4 - unless a doggie bag matches your dress, order accordingly.
Get the RIBS!

We had a great experience overall but there were a few issues. When we ordered our cocktails I ordered an old fashioned which the bartender said they could make, what I received was cheap whiskey and fruit juice, it was odd. I changed my order to a vodka martini and that was great. Dinner was amazing, steak cooked perfect, the baby back ribs are unreal. They fall of the bone and the table side sauce is crazy good. Side dishes were good nothing amazing but a good representation of classic steakhouse dishes. It was refreshing to see that they have a wine list that ranges from $10-28 a glass with a choice of 10 whites and 10 reds give or take. They do a very generous pour so you don't need more than a glass for the latter portion of dinner. Check it out, good value for what you get. The decor is nice too, not stuffy like a typical steakhouse.
Great Food & Service, A Must Try for All New Yorkers

I've been to this restaurant several times now in the last two years, and each time I've been so pleased. I love the bust of the bull in the front and the grand mirror, and they have a cool bar staff, BUt above all, the food is what keeps me coming back. Their steaks are of course excellent, and their specials are always just that. I love their side dishes and appetizers too, and my friends and I always order too much. It's not all steaks, so if you haven't tried Quality Meats, I'd definitely recommend it.
Average food for premium bill...
By jmroman on 11/13/2007
I went to the restaurant on the recommendation of the concierge at Le Parker Meridien. The food was average, specially the Filet Mignon which lacked flavor, and the side potatoes which were undercooked. It almost seems as the Chef was lazy that sunday night as we were one of the last to leave the restaurant. Wine list is extensive , yet way too expensive.
