“Quality Name, SUB-Quality Meat but Otherwise .....”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Somehow I expected to have a wonderful dining experience, one featuring the kind of steak one can only find in the finest restaurants. The wine list is first rate, the atmosphere excellent, the noise level moderate, and the service very good. Several of us ordered their sirloin and 3 of us were disappointed. The steak came cooked as ordered, rare was rare, but the eating was mediocre at best. It was dry, tasteless, and a bit mealy, something I can easily duplicate at home. I doubt we'll be returning. If you want a good steak try the better steak houses.

“This place is average”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We love trying different steakhouses and QM has some good reviews so we gave it a try. The restaurant decor was nice, the tables are little too close to each other but wasn't too bad. We both got the bone in rib-eyes which tasted good but was way undercooked. We ordered it medium but it was served rare. It kind of ruined the steak for me. I'm not a fan of returning food to the kitchen once it is served so we ate it anyway. The steak was chewy like I was eating gum. We ordered the parmesan waffle fries as a side which was pretty good. After hearing about their ice cream we had to try it. We ordered the mint chocolate chip and it was very good. Overall, the restaurant was nice, the undercooked steak ruined what would have been a great night. I might give it another try to see if they can cook the steak the right way the next time.

“The best restaurants with high quality meat”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

The best restaurant in new york with excellent service and athomsphere. We will come back every time we are in New York.

They have chosen two of New York's oldest and most respected butchers to hand-select and cut the beef. You can really notice that because the meat is excellent. The parmesan waffle fries to the meat was really good.

“The name says it all”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We were greeted friendly and correct. Service throughout dinner was impeccable. The dishes were all great, but all dishes are in the very same style: either you love them all or you cannot find some that really suits you. Wine-list was really impressing, but a bit on the pricy side. When we got the desert menus we realized that there was a possibility to have a assortment of charceturies and local cheeses – we might go back just for those. Atmosphere is great with modern elegant touch.
