the NY chopped salad touted pepperoni, hard-boiled egg, fava beans, other great additions to the basic lettuce mix. On menu it appeared that it would be a filling, complex salad. In reality, all the 'extra' ingredients were part of a dressing on the salad. I had 2 beans, 2 bites of egg. Everything else was miniscule bits mixed in with lettuce. Not the hearty blend I expected. High point was the garlic pull-apart bread served ahead of the entrees. Also delicious was the corn creme brulee side dish.

This was a great meal. Everything was cooked perfectly. The pasta dishes were absolutely wonderful. One of the guests at the table had the branzino and it was fantastic. Tried a few of the crudo's and,while the portions were quite small, they were wonderful. Service is on point. Loved this place.

I was even able to find a wine in my price range with a little help from the waiter...a great evening enjoyed by all!

Had great lunch there on last trip (food and service), so decided to try dinner. Wait staff appeared to be stretched thin and our drinks were empty several times -- and we realize staff was busy with large groups. Food was great -- but service was not -- especially for the cost versus other options available in NYC.

We took our son on a visit to NYC. He and I ordered martinis on the rocks, but they came straight up. When we gently reminded the server we ordered them on the rocks, he said he would take them back and 'put them on the rocks'. That s exactly what was done. Needless t say they were watery and diluted. Shame on you, Quality Italian! Although the lobster pasta and eggplant balls were delicious, this is what I will remember most from my visit.

I'll get the obvious ones out the way - the food and the service were really good. I was a big fan of the grilled octopus, and her filet was delicious as well. We got the tartufo for dessert, also delicious, but don't believe them when they say it's for 2 - unless that's the only thing you get I wouldn't recommend it for less than 4 people. \n\nHowever, the menu and the prices (especially for the wine and cocktails) will make you feel like you are in a steakhouse. If you are looking for old school Italian, this might not be the place to go.

Can only give a restaurant a second chance once. This was if. Waitress with attitude, lack of attentive service. Waited 15 min to have a condiment delivered to table for appetizer and had steak delivered before app was finished! Tomahawk steak not cooked to order and sat at table til app was eaten.

Chicken Parm was a let down. It's inventive that it looks like a pizza, but the taste was fair at best. The chicken seemed like a low grade smooshed up burger in appearance. It kind of looked like a proccesed dark meat chicken patty.\n\nDesert was excellent.

Only issue I had was that I called the restaurant to let them know we'd be a few minutes late for our 8:30 reservation. The hostess told me that she would note that on the reservation, but when we arrived at 8:35, the reservation had been moved to 9:00, and we were forced to spend approximately 25 minutes in the bar.

Quality Italian sounds like a cheap Italian join in a seedy part of the time attempting to dupe weary meal seekers with the endorsement of 'Quality' before Italian.

We make a point of eating here every time we visit NYC and it never fails to deliver an amazing meal -- the house-made ricotta appetizer was to die for, and the wine selection is phenomenal. The bone-in tomahawk rib eye is one of the best steaks I have had in the last decade -- they were hitting home runs from start to finish with every single course that hit our table!

Second time to this restaurant. Came back because of quality of food, location and ambiance. Bit disappointed this time. Seating for two - we may as well have been at a table for 4 - the people sitting next to us were no further away than if we had a table for 4. No privacy. Gnocchi was excellent. Branzino was good but filled with bones. Waiter said I should have been warned about bones and instructed on how to filet the fish on my own before eating. Given the plethora of choices in NY, and having eaten at 2 other Italian restaurants over past 3 days in NY, I likely won't be back.

Found the wait staff to be a little pushy, particularly with the repeated attempts to tack on additional items. One of our three servers also 'misheard' my date's order, something we discovered when they served a pricier special rather than what she ordered. Not a big deal as the food was generally excellent (although I'd skip with wildly overpriced mushroom side that they were pouching for some reason), but the service left something to be desired. Space is large and on the noisy side, but nothing out of the ordinary for the neighborhood. If you're there on an expense account, go for it. If you want intimate Italian and a relatively sedate atmosphere, look elsewhere.

I have had better experiences at TGIF. The service was poor at best. The food was below average at best and as a result overpriced. My veal picatta had no meat in it; my dessert was served in a paper cup and the waiter brought us the bill without asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. You might let this pass in a Diner setting but clearly not what you would expect. I'll think twice before going back to a Quality location.

I have been to Quality Italian four times now for dinner and it offers a fun, comfortable experience at a reasonable price. Most of the food is very high quality, but not exceptional in my opinion. Expect good food and a good experience to meet with friends and/or business dinners with few food items that are for foodies. Recommended dishes are the Eggplant Polpette, Quality Parm Pizza (unique and lots of food, taste is average for chicken parm), Corn crème brule, and sautéed spinach.

This is the second time i've eaten at Quality Italian and both times it was simply amazing! We had made our reservation and upon arriving the table was already ready for us which was great, no waiting around. Since we were there for Christmas Eve it was not overly packed or loud which my group had appreciated but we ordered a ton of appetizers and two people split the chicken parm pizza WHICH IS A MUST IF YOU GO!!!! Everyone else had steak which they all said was delicious. The waiter we had was very attentive and polite and we really valued his suggestions to us regarding the menu or if we were unsure of something. The only thing that was little disappointing is the appetizer selection we all wished there was more of a variety and maybe if they could have offered calamari that would have been good but we were extremely happy with all the food we got that evening.

Trendy place with loud atmosphere! Seating is close together as you would expect in NY. When my plate was presented, the long black hair that encircled my steak was more than enough to make anyone nauseated. Naturally the entrée was removed from my check and I refused to give them another chance. The serving sizes question the value as does the awareness of the chef plating the food. Top quality restaurants would never allow this out of the kitchen! Interesting the name 'Quality Italian' was chosen. A little misleading but seems to be working for the moment. I over heard the server telling another table that business was tough in the neighborhood and the restaurant had only been there 3 1/2 years. Good luck making it to 7. So many choices and somehow I choose this place.

So crowded that the waiters had no time and patience to provide service. And the biggest problem is that they know it themselves and they don't care!

Food and service were excellent. Every employee was professional and polite. The food was delicious. My only complaint is that there were zero traditional pasta options. Zero. When you go out for Italian dining, usually there are a couple guests in the party that are wanting some traditional pasta, tomato sauce based choices. I chose this restaurant because we do have a picky eater in our group. Most of us enjoy gourmet italian and were fine but we specifically picked Italian hoping our picky eater would be able to find some choices. You have to offer at least one or two traditional italian simple options.....pasta with tomato sauce of any sort would have been expected.

Pre-theatre dinner with my husband and a friend. Elegant ambience, delicious food, excellent service. Would definitely recommend and will certainly go back.\n\nMy husband arrived first and was seated. My friend and I were 40 minutes late(!), but the server didn't blink an eye when we said we had to leave in an hour to get to our show. He was friendly and gracious throughout. The food came out quickly after we ordered, but we did not feel rushed in any way. Nor were we made to feel like jerks for showing up late and then saying we were in a hurry! ;-) I'm looking forward to going back when I can spend more time lingering over the meal.

I was a bit disappointed in the menu. I was expecting more 'ITALIAN' fare. It was also more expensive than I thought it would be for what I was getting. It took a while to get seated, but it was within reason as they were busy. It took a while to get someone over to our table. After a slow start, the service improved. Our waiter and his assistant turned out to be very personable and friendly. The service seemed to improve as the night went on. I am guessing we just hit them at a particularly busy time. I asked the waiter about an after dinner drink that seemed odd and he explained what it was. I also asked him for his advice on 2 desserts. We chose one dessert. He brought both desserts and said one was on him because he really wanted me to try it. He also brought me the after dinner drink to try on the house as well. Very unexpected and appreciated. Overall a good night. I thought the menu would be a bit more robust as far as choices, and I thought for what it was, even in New York, it was a bit pricey. But overall we enjoyed the experience.

Cocktails and food -- oysters, grilled broccoli rabe, pasta amatriciana , lamb chops scottaditto-- were simply prepared and delicious, service not so great in a very loud, hard-surfaced room. Arrived on time but waited for at least 20 minutes for our reserved table, only to be shown to a table literally all the way in the back near the servers' stand. I asked to be moved and that was fine. Once we were seated, our young waiter (Jared?) just didn't seem to paying attention. (He forgot part of our order, put plates put down, then removed them, and put them down at a nearby table, etc.) Victor, who assisted him, was great and very attentive. Their roles should be reversed. Still, I'd return, maybe just not at 8pm on a Saturday night!

Unlike other restaurants, they treat you like royalty. When you sit down, you don’t have to wait for a waiter. When they put the food on the table, they let you eat without them saying, “How is everything?” The waiter and all of the other waiters let you eat and talk with your family, not the workers. The food is great there. I haven’t had a piece of chicken that good in a long time. The appetizers are so good, you can have them all day! It’s really hard to find anything bad about that restaurant. If you are looking to eat somewhere in the city, I would definitely recommend Quality Italian.

This restaurant is from the man who practically invented The NYC Steakhouse and food runs in his veins. . The menu is short and to the point. The food is excellent if you don’t take it too seriously. They start you off with complimentary, warm, butter-topped rolls, dusted with herbs and sea salt. Yum! And then it's off to the races. There's a great selection of appetizers, pastas and a lot of influence in their entrees from their sister restaurant Quality meats. There's a lot of variety on the menu but don't come here for red sauce and lasagna that you might be better off eating in Little Italy.

He commented that the Filet he had at Quality Italian was unbelievably good. Amongst the best he's every had.\n\nMy other client ordered the Lobster Diavolo-Vodka, which looked simply decadent. Literally, finger lickin' good (let's be honest, when you're eating lobster, fingers are involved).\n\nI had the Grilled Branzino, which consisted of two fillets, perfectly cooked.\n\nFor appetizers we had - Sausage & Pepper Garlic Toast and Carne Cruda (steak tartare).\n\nSides included - Corn Creme Brulee, White Balsamic Roasted Peppers and Tuscan Fries.\n\nWhat I truly enjoyed about Quality Italian was the diversity of the menu.

I live just down the Street from QI and this is first time I was disappointed in my meal. I think it was mainly do to the waitress. She was awful. Blond, thin I did not get her name. I have been to QI maybe 10+ times and it has always been excellent. This women just blew us off the entire night got everything wrong. To cap it off, I ordered two bottles of wine...a Rose as a starter (it was hot outside) and a Phelps Pinot Noir with the main course.\n\n She had a helper...because she disappeared for what felt like forever, so I ordered the wine through him. She came by confirmed the wine order...she came back again to reconfirm the Pinot (that she called the 'Michael Phelps'....I said.... 'Um, he is a swimmer and not a winery'). She laughed and proceeded to disappear. We are 75% through our meal and a floor manager could see the distress on my face and asked what's wrong. I say we never got our wine with dinner. She comes back in 5 minutes and starts to open the wine. I told her to buzz off and that it was too late. It really put a cloud over the evening.\n\nI will be back but this waitress was awful. I am sure the people at QI know who she is...I did see the manger give her a 'what is your problem look'.

They butterflied my daughters steak without asking assume because she wanted medium well... if they were going to do this she would have asked for medium instead . The waitstaff had trays that kept falling to the floor behind us and making a loud clattering noise. After the third time I asked them to move it... waiter was apologetic and brought us dessert which was nice but just didn't make up for spending 400 and having a dry steak and clattering dishes.

I have NEVER written feedback on any restaurant I have visited, either good or bad. However, I felt this experience warranted my writing something. \n\nWe went to this restaurant upon the recommendation of friends. All day we looked forward to an amazing meal. We ordered the 'special' filet to be cooked at a medium temperature and the 'special' ravioli. We explained to our server that we would be sharing this food (my husband, daughter, and I). A food runner dropped the food and left. The amount of food was minimal. Definitely not enough for 2 people to share, let alone 3. We knew we'd have to order more. \n\nThe steak come cut into pieces, so all you had to do was look to see that it was rare. My husband likes it rare so he tried a piece while the food runner, not the server, passed by our table. We asked to have the steak brought up in temperature. While waiting for our steak to be re-cooked the server finally appeared asking just how wonderful everything was. He had no clue that the steak had been sent back. When the runner brought the steak to the table the entire exterior of the meat was charred. My 7-year old, who I will apprise eats palomilla steaks medium well (palomilla is a steak that's been pounded down to minimal thickness- Cuban), said to me she couldn't eat the steak because it was burned. I had to cut-off the entire edges of the steak before I could feed her. In the meantime, the rare part that my husband had kept was all chewy fat (remember this was supposed to be a filet). When the server finally reappeared and we showed him the condition of the steak he apologized and said he'd get a manager. By that time I'd already figured I'd be having dinner elsewhere, since the server never gave me the opportunity to order more food. The manager NEVER went to our table and the steak remained on our check, which I expected it would. They gave us a cannoli. Steaks can get over cooked anywhere, but service can make the experience better, just not here.

Loved the space; the food was excellent; service was just fair. My only real complaint about Quality Italian is that the wine list is unnecessarily expensive. Entrees were well priced, but very few wines under $100 are on the menu, which seems absurd, especially if one chooses to have a more casual pasta dish. If this were strictly a steakhouse I could understand it, but the menu is wonderfully broad, and the wine list should be equally varied.

We waited over 15 minutes for our waiter to come. We were there for wine week. After our server gave us our 2nd pour (of what was supposed to be 5 pours, 2 wines at a time), we didn't see him for another 40 minutes. When he finally showed up he told us the 3rd pour would be our last pour because the wine week event was over. When I explained to him and to the floor manager that this was unfair and that we hadn't seen him in 40 minutes, he accused us of sitting down too late at the table - as I mentioned before, we waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table, we did not sit down late. The service was poor, the floor manager didn't correct the situation, and we paid $$ for wine that we did not receive.

Quality Italian is a solid option if you're looking for a restaurant in midtown that is a cut above the tourist traps and also not at the price scale of the Modern or a Le Bernadin. Its biggest strength is also perhaps its greatest weakness: the menu is filled with the expected steakhouse staples. At times it feels less like an Italian restaurant and more Quality Meats 2.0. While their options are safe (and well prepared!), there's little sense of adventure with any dish. For a restaurant in midtown, it is MASSIVE and the decor is charming and cozy. It's a great restaurant to bring out of town family members to, but not a destination for a downtown food expert. Still, can't knock how great the steaks are.

We were so over the slower than usual service( I had to wave my arms in the air at one point to get a second glass of wine) that we didn't even want to see the dessert menu.... the food was very good and i would give the restaurant another chance because the food and menu is very good.

A commanding experiences of service, food and drink.\n\nThis was my second full meal (drink, appetizer and entree) at Quality Italian (QI). I first stumbled upon their street-level-open-garage-door bar/entrance and continued to come back for their on-tap-house-made-vermouth Negronis.\n\nSince I'm normally not one to frequent Italian restaurants (the wife's sauce is a serious factor in that) I wasn't in a hurry to move upstairs to the restaurant until, one day, I decided to order some lunch. It was two things that got me that day, brown butter gnocchi and their perfectly sized garlic-parmesan bread.\n\nSo, with that lunch experience in tow, I have made it a point to go to QI for special occasions and for business meetings.

After having the bread (best part of the meal-it was amazing) and the chicken parm, our table was getting full quickly. We decided to spilt a few entrees as well as a salad and sides and it was obvious that the waiter was not only annoyed that we weren't spending more money but that we were taking so long. We were with friends we had not seen in awhile so were chatting. I asked the waiter for a few lighter suggestions and his response was 'well that's up to you'.

Our 2 servers were really enthusiastic and knowledgeable.... Two from our party had the tomahawk steaks which were absolutely delicious. My mother had the filet mignon with Gorgonzola cheese, how can you go wrong? I had a cavatelli lamb special- The only thing I did not like about it was the fact that there were olives in the dish and It did not mention that on the menu. I'm not a huge fan of olives but still ate most of the dish but wish I had known that they were going to have olives so I could get something else. I am looking forward to returning here.

The restaurant is very, very loud so I wouldn't recommend for a dinner with any kind of meaningful conversation.

The bifsteak fiorentina came rare as we asked, and was a fabulous piece of meat. The wine paired poorly with the meat and no suggestion was offered. Noisy.

The restaurant was too loud, filled with people who were either staying in a nearby hotel for the night trying to impress their 'dates' or by bored business people on an expense account. Either way, it seemed like the only people there were basically paying for the opportunity to pay for something. The food was mediocre at best, though i will admit that the steaks were well cooked and what I would have expected. The rest though, laughably bad. Our crapaccio (misspelling on purpose) was two small pieces of meat, pushed into the corner of the plate for presentation and then covered with cheese/herb/goo. The sides we ordered to go with the steaks were also lackluster. Lastly, the do have a grab bag Somm bin wine deal. I'd avoid it if you make the original mistake of coming here. Our surprise selection was a Oregon Cabernet, not Pinot, and it was maybe a bottle that would retail for 9.99. All in, poor execution, disgusting crowd, service that caters to the above which means that any sane individual would find it tacky, and just a waste of dining dollars and time. There are literally 10s of better places to eat within a 5 block radius of this place, don't fall into the trap.

Overall a great experience and I would definitely go back. One of the best steaks I have ever had, if not the best. Only negative thing I could possibly say is that if you are like me and plan on drinking wine, you should pick by the glass because the bottle selection is very weak unless you plan on spending over $70/bottle. I know that isn't too expensive but my group of 5 was planning on getting a few bottles and didn't want to spend much more than $65 a bottles. Otherwise it was a great experience and I look forward to going back.

I have frequented their sister restaurant Quality Meats several times but wanted to give this a try since it was new. I made a reservation only for Saturday night at 8:30pm. I had put in the special requests box that it was my girlfriend's birthday and if available I would like a window table. We arrived about 10 minutes early and were seated right away, at a window table! Off to a good start. The waiter was great, offered good suggestions and checked in with us just the right amount of times. Everything we ordered was amazing! The bone-in dry aged sirloin was the best sirloin I've ever had. When it came time for dessert, we ordered a new chili-mango sorbet they had and split it between the both of us. Without me saying anything they brought out the dessert with a candle and 2 glasses of champagne! It was very nice of them to do that and refreshing that they took the time to actually read my notes and put in the effort to make it a good night! Well done to the whole team at Quality Italian. I will DEFINITELY be back!

I enjoyed dinner at Quality Italian with two of my closest friends from out of town. We were sat immediately upon entering the restaurant and we had an amazing booth. We started with a bottle of Rose Prosecco which was tasty and reasonably priced. We ordered the eggplant appetizer, which I can only describe as an eggplant ball, like a meatball without the meat. It was amazing. I had the black truffle pasta (which is made in house) and my friends had the filet. The filet was tender and cooked to perfection and the pasta was to die for. We also had sauteed spinach and asparagus as sides. I only have great things to say about this restaurant. The service was impeccable. My servers name was Mike, he was so attentive and he really cared that I had an amazing birthday experience. He even sent some drinks to the table on him!! He helped us make educated choices on wine, appetizers, and told us which entrees were his favorite. He also took a million pictures of my friends and I until we had the perfect one. Haha. My friends couldn't stop talking about the meal all night. They will never forget the experience and neither will I. Thank you Quality Italian and Mike!!

Quality Italian is loud, but you don't feel you're on top of the next table. And if you sit by the window on 6th Avenue, you have an appealing city view. Lots of younger, large tables contribute to the noise level. My only disappointment was that the chicken parm 'pizza,'' which is for two, is enormous...another person at my table was considering it as well and the waiter could have suggested that the dish was an adequate amount for all three of us (still with some left over). That said, I understand why he didn't, but YOU can certainly share it three-maybe four-ways. By the way, it's chicken parm, not a pizza, but served on a pizza tray. Ther salads were a great accompaniment and definitely no room for dessert.

Restaurant is overrated. Sliced tomato salad was the highlight. Ribeye steak which was highly recommended by server arrived overcooked (ordered medium arrived well done) and not particularly favorful. So much for the 'rich marbling'. Branzino was also a disappointment. We experienced a significant wait time between 1st course and 2nd ~ manager did come to table to apologize so clearly knew there were issues in the kitchen. With all the really outstanding restaurants (particularly steakhouse) to choose from, we won't be back.

I had high hopes for this place given the reviews but it was a bit disappointing. First, my biggest pet peeve, 90% of the food came out luke-warm. The hottest dishes were the French fries and the sausage-pepper bread (which were both very good). Two other tasty plates were the Eggplant Polpette and Soft-Shell Crab, but again, both came out luke-warm, as did our fish (Halibut & Branzino) and pasta dish We didn't get to try the Chicken Parm pizza which did look very good (and hot) but looked like a meal in itself. I'd go back to Quality Italian to try it but that's it. (BTW, I did hear that the Executive Chef was on vacation the night I went, so maybe that made the difference, but that's not good).\n\nAs for the service, thank goodness we had a wonderful and personable junior waiter named Alex taking care of us as we never saw our waiter after we told him most of the appetizers came out luke-warm. You would think he would have come by to make sure our entrees were ok, but never saw him. Very disappointing.

As a big fan of Quality Steaks, I was really excited to try Quality Italian for the first time. I took my sister out as a congratulations dinner for a job promotion and we were both really looking forward to some great food and to finally getting to try the famous 'Chicken Parm Pizza'.\n\nThe menu looked great and perhaps we just chose the wrong items, but for the prices they charge, I would expect more of a wow factor. We decided to splurge and get the '24' pizza with the prosciutto and aged parmigiano, bringing the price of this 'pizza' to $80.00. The dish itself was nothing special. The chicken was ground and formed into a large pizza pie shaped patty, then breaded and fried. The sauce and cheese were just OK. We found that to make it interesting and have more flavor, we needed to load it up with the extras provided, especially the honey.\n\nWe also ordered the brussels sprouts and baked clams. The brussels sprouts, while flavorful, were fried beyond recognition and doused in balsamic vinegar. At $3 a piece, the clams were boring and uninventive. \n\nAside from the lack-luster food, the service was so overly attentive that it felt stifling. We felt rushed the entire meal by the wine steward, the waiter and even the bussers. Our waiter was pleasant enough, but could use a bit more discretion when it comes to timing. (eg: He cleared one of our cocktails before we were finished, and came by to collect the check twice while we were still enjoying our dessert).\n\nI value feedback in my work, so I hope that you take the time to read this and share it with the management team and servers at QI. I am hoping that our experience was just a one off 'miss', and look forward to trying it again in the near future.\n\nBest Regards,\n\nJud

Really looking forward to this place, as near hotel we regularly visit. Setting somewhat industrial. Loud with business groups. Food good and service excellent. The 'italian' side of the menu very limited, really a steakhouse. The kicker was the value. Well over $300 for three entrees shared with five people, no bottles of wine, a few extra items, and no dessert. How'd that happen?? Clearly a place to go with an expense account.

I purchased a gift card for Quality Italian and made this reservation all through Open Table. The process of buying the gift card in parallel with making the reservation was really great. Open Table made the process really simple and seamless. I purchased the gift card for my parents as a Father's Day gift for a night out in the city. It was July 4th so the restaurant wasn't too crowded which allowed the staff to give my parents an over the top experience. Not only is Quality Italian wonderful all around in terms of service and food, they really go above and beyond when they can. My parents received a couple of complimentary dishes as an appetizer and dessert on top of everything they ordered as well. All the food was amazing and left my parents wanting more although they couldn't fit anything else in their bellies! We have already made another reservation to go back as a family for chicken parm pizza :) see you soon Quality Italian!

At the end we were surprised with a delicious cannoli for dessert with a candle in it. \n\nThe location was great for us as we were staying near the park and it was on our way to the theater.

We were a quiet party of 6 and we were there for only about an hour and a half it was around 7pm on a sunday and the restaurant was half empty. It was completely uncalled for. We were there for my birthday and to spend that much money on a meal and then get treated as we did was really upsetting. The food was good. I enjoyed my pork chop however my mom was not impressed with her seafood bolognese dish which was lacking seafood.

I always enjoy eating at Quality Italian. Great food and preparation. Our food took way too long to arrive this past visit while others around us received their meals after being seated much later. When we arrived the dining room was empty so it didn't make sense for the delay. My guess was a kitchen problem or waitress not putting in our order. We questioned the waitress twice and then was forced to bring it to the managers attention. Once the food arrived the manager said they wouldn't charge us for the sides which seemed like a nice gesture.

I took clients here who were in from out of town. I had heard nothing but great reviews on this restaurant and it was always difficult to get a dinner reservation on short notice but I planned ahead and got a reservation. We were seated promptly at our scheduled time, but immediately we saw that there were large groups and it was a 'loud' environment. The waiter was very courteous and attentive. We got our appetizer no problem and it was very good (shrimp cocktail). Then we were waiting and waiting and waiting for our main course. The waiter came over and said 5 more minutes. Then the manager came over after 10 more minutes and said chef was behind and his apologies. A group of women came and sat down next to our table and left midway into their first drink. My guess is because it was so loud you can't carry a conversation. Lots of intoxicated business men in groups at tables and they got louder with each bottle of wine ordered. Finally when we got our meal an hour and 15 minutes after our reservation it was as delicious as people have raved about. We ordered dessert too and what we expected was carrot cake but what we got a carrot cake pudding type in a bowl instead. We all didn't expect that and were were disappointed. The coconut gelato was good and they gave us a complimentary blood orange gelato which was good too. Overall, the food was very very good, but the atmosphere was not enough to say I'd be back.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Cousins. It was a great place to celebrate with our friends. For NYC standards, it was not outrageously expensive. Although we had incidents with the Restaurant that could have made our dining experience bad, the Restaurant staff stepped up to the plate and made it wonderful. Let me explain in a little more detail. My wife, who doers not like spicy foods, ordered a dish that the server said was not going to be spicy. Unfortunately, that was not the case, but in a matter of minutes, the same dish came out without the spices. My wife enjoyed the new dish immensely.\nWhen it came time for desserts, we did not see anything we wanted, however, our server then brought us a great dessert with pine nuts on top.(One of us was allergic to nuts) Immediately, a second dessert came out for all of us to enjoy. When the bill came, there was no charge for our drinks or the desserts. I told our server that was not necessary, but he insisted that there would not be a charge for these items. That is the sign of a very classy Restaurant. I would highly recommend Quality Italian to anyone who is in the area of 57th St. and 6th Avenue.

LUNCH REVIEW\nOh goodness me, I am already psyched to come back for dinner sometime! Came for lunch/brunch today and had the meal of my life! Every single item we ordered was fab, from bellinis to gelato!\n\nWe started with the Bellini cart, first a grapefruit Bellini, then spiced pear, and back to grapefruit. YUM. Not too sweet, and love the glasswear. For the three of us we shared the chicken parm pizza (a MUST!!) which is served with a light arugula salad with lemon and Parmesan, chile infused honey and shakers each with diced black olives, oregano, and red pepper flake options. We also decided on a side of the corn creme brûlée (creamed corn with a sugar creme brûlée crust), Italian breakfast potatoes, and broccoli rabe. All in all, the chicken parm pizza and the corn creme brûlée won according to our taste buds, but I'd order everything again. The amount of food was perfect, the parm pizza indicates it is for two, but can definitely be shared among more than that! The Italian potatoes came with pickled sautéed onions and peppers, so unique and delicious! And broccoli rabe was garlicky and fresh, not bitter at all. EXTREMELY WELL DONE MEAL, as I would have expected from such an establishment :) \n\nFor dessert we shared a scoop of the ricotta gelato with raspberry infused honey and pine nuts - phenomenal way to round out the meal! It's a hefty scoop so it was perfect for the 3 of us to share. I can't wait to be back!

I had a terrible experience at this location. As a frequent restaurant goer I must say this is probably the worst I've had in the last two years. The service was pathetic I've been to quality meats and raved about the attention however quality Italian is a complete opposite. Our waiter never came by the table to verify if everything was ok, only after 50 mins did he notice he forgot to fire our order and ran into the kitchen. After coming out and apologizing he figured we would be fine however I already had informed the busboy to cancel our order. After another about 10 minutes our waiter shows up with the food. I told him I had canceled and am no longer hungry after all it was almost 11:00pm my reservation was at 9:30pm. Then comes the manager only to tell me he is sorry that our food took a little extra time. I had to stop him and told him we aren't impressed with this service nor the attention especially being that he is he Floor manager never once did he go to any table to ask how's it going. He then tried to offer me the food on the house I told him I'm not here to ask for a free meal. I already lost my appetite so did my wife so I asked for the check for the two glasses of wine so we can leave. After five minutes of a reunion in the kitchen out comes my waiter to inform me the check had been cleared. I left and will not go back ever. It's a shame I have an office space in the same building. I will not recommend this restaurant until they don't really revise their service policy.

Ambiance is lovely, service terrific, and food absolutely delicious. \nWe also love the midtown location as we have a place at The Manhattan Club and this could not be more convenient. It's one of the few restaurants we can get our 'downtown daughter' to make the trip uptown for!

We were with a party of 7. We were seated promptly and greeted immediately. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I was expecting a few more pasta choices for an Italian restaurant, but overall, everyone really loved their meals. We allowed about 2 hours for the meal before seeing a show and that left us plenty of time without feeling rushed. I personally had the filet mignon with the Gorgonzola little pillow of heaven (it was basically a ravioli stuffed with a melted Gorgonzola). Extremely tasty. I would gladly eat there again.

Overall good. The food and drinks were delicious, and our servers were very good. \n\nHowever, I asked our server to put two after-dinner drinks on my tab and send them to another table, at which I saw a friend eating. I was subsequently billed for the drinks, but I caught up with that friend after dinner at the bar and he told me he never received the drinks. Yikes. I asked our server what happened and he said my friends server did not make it happen like he/she was supposed to and did not deliver the drinks. Very disappointing. \n\nThe manager apologized and ended up covering two drinks we got at the bar after, which was very appreciated (even proposed by me as a solution). Although, in retrospect, if they had top notch service - which one may come to expect with such prices - they should have been a bit more proactive and not only covered the after-dinner drinks that were purchased but not delivered, and something else as a sign of good faith. Personally, I think the true customer-centric approach would have been to cover the two drinks at the bar after dinner, and at the least, certainly refund the drinks that were paid for and not delivered. Plus, even though it's besides the point, the drinks at the bar were much cheaper than the drinks purchased for my friend....\n\nUltimately I'm sure it was an honest miscommunication, which could happen to anyone. Again, good food, good drinks, and our server was solid, but they as a team and as a company did not quite nail the 'customer experience.'

The menu is very small and Quality Italian is known for their giant chicken parmigiana. It's a 'per person' size. When it comes out they slice it like a pizza, it's very impressive at first sight. What they DONT tell you is that it's a CHICKEN PATTY! It's not a chicken breast! It's like a giant chicken burger and that's gross to me! Especially for the '$22 per person price!' No thank you. Plus when I asked for some extra sauce, because it was a bit dry, the waiter told me he's never had that request before. The next time someone suggests Quality Italian, try Patsy's.

The name of this restaurant 'quality' should be challenged and it meets the challenge. \nFour of us visited on a Friday night. Noise level was high and ambience is nothing special but food is excellent . You would not expect an Italian steak house emphasizing Italian and steaks would have creative delicious fish-yet the bronzino was outstanding with very nice portion and creativity. The rest of the table enjoyed excellent pasta dishes and a steak tare tare . Service was efficient and satisfactory. A little pricey but worth the value. We would return without hesitation

Upon receiving a recommendation, I tried this restaurant not being from the NYC area. Drink menu was limited as was the food menu. Server was nice but did not relate well to us when we asked for certain things. ie. I asked for a lighter beer and I was served a very heavy red ale. When I asked again, he gave me another beer that tasted like Bud Light and Windex combined.

Not what I would expect from a $50 steak... The waiter clearly just wanted to be done with his shift and go home. Did not take time to greet us or explain anything. Service was rushed.

The chicken parm dish is amazing and worth coming to this restaurant for. Somehow the steak was not as good as Quality Meats though. My main problem was the service was terrible. The waiter smashed a wine glass into a thousand pieces on our table, hitting my mom with wine and staining her dress. No offer of anything was made after this with barely a sorry. Moreover, they kept forgetting our wine orders and took forever in getting our check so that this needlessly turned into a 3 hour dinner. The wine order miscues kept us from getting our proper beverage before we were almost done with our main course. Overall, the service was very bad, not what you would expect for spending this much money.

Food is delicious as always. Service on the other hand, very sub par. We had to wait about 20 minutes before a server bothered to introduce us the specials for the evening or should I say to even introduce himself with his presence. We were given the wine menu but afterwards there was no follow up if we wanted wine or not. Our wine glasses stayed at the table even after our entrees were served which cluttered the table. Luckily there was a stand where I could move the wine glasses myself over to. Worst of all I felt like I was played the racism card when your server picked up the tip before we even left the table. Average restaurants of caliber 'lower' than Quality Italian know better than to take tip from the table before patrons exit. Let me play the card that I graduated from the School of Hotel Administration of Cornell University so I absolutely know what level of service should be expected. Let's not forget that tip is discretionary at the end of the day and it's not obligated. To break the stereotype, I still tipped just above average. I hope this never happens again. Sad thing is that I've been here several times and this has never happened before and I was here to celebrate a friend's engagement.\n\nService is a huge factor in the hospitality industry. Negligence shouldn't be tolerated.

Unfortunately my experience was not what I expected. I've dined at Quality Meats before and had an excellent experience. I was at Quality Italian for lunch with a friend. Server took our order and then disappeared. He came back once when the food was served and that was it. We had to flag down a busboy/backwaiter to remove our dishes and request a dessert menu. He then sent another server over and that server continued waiting on our table. We ordered coffee and paid the bill with the new server. After that, the original server came back to our table to see if we needed anything. Strange. \n\nI ordered a lobster roll. I asked server 1 if it was a traditional lobster roll. He said yes. It was not. The lobster was finely chopped and there was very little lobster in the sandwich. Definitely not worth $25. I looked on the website prior to dining and saw a dessert that I wanted.

I was happy to get a last minute reservation in NYC. I chose the restaurant for the location and the ability to please a carnivore and also a vegetarian. I worried a bit after I made the reservations because of their name, 'Quality Italian Restaurant.' I felt responsible, in case our friends did not like it. \n\nIt's definitely not a place to go on a first date as it is very busy, bustling full of people and loud. Being a foodie I think there are three things that are important in a culinary experience: great food, nice atmosphere and an attentive server. Our waiter was in a hurry and we were not. After I told him we were from Pa and we are not in a hurry his service improved. I didn't want to feel hurried and stressed. Thank goodness he slowed down. \n\nThe food was superb. The two who had the steaks said that they could compete with any of the well known steak restaurants in Ny. The octopus was delicious as well as the chopped salads. The gnocchi was to die for, as it melted in your mouth. The other entree was ok, it had eggplant in it. \n\nDessert we had to try and they were all great, cannolis, Samores and superb gelato. \n\nWe will definitely go again! By the way, I think they should rename the restaurant. The name doesn't do them justice.

I have been to Quality Italian three times now and its has delivered above my expectations on all three visits. The first time I went on a date with my girlfriend and the menu had a great variety of options and prices (generally on the more pricey side, but worth it). The second time I went with NYC clients and they had all heard of QI, but had never been. The restaurant was not too loud to have business conversations and everyone left full talking about their meals. On the most recent visit, I went with friends who all were impressed with the service. We sat down at 8 PM for dinner and had to be at a show 10 minutes away at 8:50 PM. We told the server and he put a rush on the food for us, was very attentive to the table, and made sure we had a good time. \n\nMy only complaint is that the pasta portions are a little small. They are probably very popular because of the price and that they are homemade in house. Most of the entrees are about $29 - $39.

Come here often because you can literally close your eyes let your finger fall on the menu and you're guaranteed to love it. You really can't go wrong here: house-made ricotta app is worth noting as well as their sausage and pepper toast. Main course go-to would be the pork chop or their chicken parm, for steak I'd go around the corner to their steakhouse Quality Meats. Cocktails are always great, great wine list also. JUST GO! :-)

Gigantic space in midtown west. Had the special chicken parm pizza -- interesting toppings and gigantic. They say it's for 2 but it could easily feed 4 people if they had appetizers.

I have been to Quality Steak and enjoyed it much more. I really did not care for my eggplant appetizer nor the swordfish cioppino. It was too salty and strong flavored , maybe due to the speck in the broth. About half our party liked their meals and the other half said it 'was okay' . I expect better odds than that at with an average check of $100.

After being to Quality Meats several times and having amazing experiences, we decided to try Quality Italian. It was HORRIBLE! Every meat item that came out was so overly salted it could not be eaten. The vegetables were over salted as well. The corn brûlée which is one of my favorite sides was extremely runny. The Branzino portion appeared to be half a portion (one side of the fish), served in a huge bowl with nothing else - definitely not enough to be considered an adult meal. The manager even commented it looked smaller than usual.\n\nNot only was the meat over seasoned but none of it was cooked properly either. While their meat is typically slightly under cooked, on this night things ordered medium were either rare or well-done. The manager graciously took 2 of the meals off the bill and gave us free desserts as an apology. The desserts other than the ferrero-rocher ice cream (including s'mores, and the large apple tart) were mediocre at best. Do not waste your money here! Go to Quality Meats for an excellent dining experience.

We had a 5 pm reservation for a party of eight. It took 1 1/2 hours to be served appetizers and 1 3/4 hour to be served our meals. I believe the problem was too many tables were seated at 5 pm and the kitchen was overwhelmed. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly but we did have to ask to place our order.\nThe lights are so dim that patrons at most tables were using cell phone lights to read the menu. The appetizers of oysters, baked clams and kale salads were all very tasty. The fusilla alla norma lacked flavor and was served barely warm. Dry-Aged Porterhouse Agnolotti was quite good as was the lamb chops. The Parm-Pizza for two is a hearty dish and was enjoyed but wasn't exceptional. We didn't have dessert.

The food was great and the service excellent. Our only gripe was the frustrating pricing on silly things like salad.

The $64 chicken parm was well worth the hefty cost because not only did it feed a bunch, but it was tender and very delicious! Put the arugala and honey on top and it is even more phenomenal. The ambiance is great and the wait staff very attentive. Be sure to order pasta with eggplant too and the ricotta appetizers. We loved Quality, but would never get a salad again.

My filet was excellent but my wife's pork chop (recommended by our server) was not. We asked if the salad was big enough to share and was told 'not really'. It would have been more than big enough.

The short version: NOISY, SALTY and very LIMITED. Not very ITALIAN. NOT RECOMMENDED\n\n As I read reviews I try to include a grain of salt - knowing that opinions are very personal and are sometimes exaggerated. The average review is the hardest to be objective with. The bad (and good) are generally pretty easy. This one - REAL easy. The downstairs bar area was nicely appointed, quiet and pretty inviting. Upstairs we were met by the hostess and asked for a quiet table - please. From there on it went down hill. There was NO quieter table. No such thing. \nOrdered drinks - the Manhattan was missing its cherry - the gin & tonic was nice. The waiter brought olive oil and bread, which was warm and fresh - yummy. The menu was VERY limited and didn't appear to be very Italian. With help from our waiter we ordered a dish that included pasta and clams and an order of meat lasagna. Both dishes were presented well but fell short when tasted. The lasagna was soft and mushy (overcooked?) spicy with a lot of salt and otherwise tasteless. The clam dish was spicy, pasta good but the clams needed tweezers to be eaten......if you could find them. \n\nThis review (as with some of the others for the 'Quality Italian' restaurant) should be read without the grain of salt.

Seriously one of the most creative, delicious menus I've experienced in a long time. Everything was so good and so exciting to look at! From the brunch parm pizza with the fried egg to the gourmet gelato flavors and toppings. Can't wait to come back for more. The only complaint would be the menu not being updated with the right prices, so there was a little confrontation at the end so that's why I knocked one star off for service. We spent over $500 here and the server didn't take off $18 from our total for the price mistake on the menu (not our fault). But she took it off eventually, and was a great, knowledgable waitress overall. But wont stop me from coming back because it was absolutely decadent. Neighborhood favorite for sure!!

We Ordered Tomahawk, medium plus, got it almost raw. Server never came back to the table, not even to pour us more wine from our 115 USD WARM bottle of wine. We ordered a sprite for one of our kids, and it was brought after we reminded another server passing by that we had ordered the sprite 15 min. ago. The graciously named 'Tuscan Fries', were just plain fat tasteless french fries. Our server did not even offer dessert, which we were waiting for. We decided to leave without ordering it because we were so angry at the whole experience. We've been to a lot of steakhouses, and this is the worst one ! We don't mind high prices, but in this place the price by far does NOT match the quality of the food, and add on top of that a completely Careless Waiter...!!

This was my second attempt at eating at Quality Italian. The first time I made a reservation on a Thursday night and arrived 10 minutes early. My table was not read yet, which was understandable; however, 20 minutes past my reservation time, and still nothing!!! The hostess did not do much to make the situation better so I ended up leaving. To be honest I was completely turned off my the restaurant at this point and disappointed, considering I had such a pleasant experience at Quality Meats. This weekend was my friend's birthday and she really wanted to go to Quality Italian for her birthday, so I went and the food and service were great! They still have a long ways to go as far as honoring reservation times, but over all this experience was better.

The Parmesan Chicken Pizza was a big disappointment. The price was $29 per person for pizza for 2. The waiter said it would only feed 2 people. Since there were 3 of us, we ordered another dish. We had so much food left. And only 3 pieces of the pizza were eaten. The pizza was NOT good. It was like frozen preformed chicken patties that had been breaded and molded into a pizza size.

I took out of town guests to Quality Italian because on my first visit to the restaurant - just after it first opened - I had a delicious meal and excellent service. On this occasion, the service was so bad that I will never return - and I work three blocks away. In addition, the food was just mediocre - with half of the dishes hot and the other half cold. I didn't eat my entree because it was cold and I could never get the waiter's attention to take it back to the kitchen. The staff was more concerned with setting up the tables for a few large parties than attending to the diners that were already there. We gave up on the food and just got our check as we needed to get to a show.

Quality Italian (QI) is a more obnoxious version of Quality Meats (QM). \n\nFirst off, the menus are very similar and represent common steakhouse fare, done with a modern flare. The difference is that QI has pasta and a ginormous chicken parmesan that is very popular. Otherwise, there is little difference between the menus. The font and design of the menus are the same, contributing to the feeling that you are ordering from the same restaurant. \n\nThe service at QI is far below QM. We had a 8 pm reservation and waited until 8:30 for our table. A half hour wait for hungry people who had a reservation is a long time. The hostess kept telling us that our 'table was being set,' which was an obvious lie. I think the issue was that Conan O'Brian walked into the restaurant with a friend and was seated right away at a two top ahead of us. It was irritating. The table service was done by an all male waitstaff which was adequate.\n\nThe atmosphere is LOUD! It was hard to carry a conversation due to the noise. QM is far quieter. The decor at QI is very minimal an similar to QM, but lacks the interesting multilevel topography that QM has. \n\nBottom line is that the hostess ruined our initial impression of QI. The service was fine. The food was very good, and very similar to QM. The atmosphere was overwhelmingly loud. I would rather eat at QM than QI any day.

Without a doubt Quality Italian serves the best chicken parmigiana I've ever had and being from Australia, I've had a lot! It is 100% worth going purely for the parma! They're designed to be shared between two but we made sure everyone at the table had a bite so they could share in the deliciousness and within 5 minutes we'd already booked to come back so that those who hadn't ordered the parma could come and have one! \nThe service was fantastic and we really enjoyed our waiter, he loved the energy at our table and gave us a free cannoli when he brought out dessert! \nThe ONLY downfall was that somewhere along the line one of our sides was missed and never arrived but with all that parma we were better off!! \nDessert was also amazing! The fererro rocher ice cream was incredible and the waiter was fantastic at recommending dishes and drinks and was very honest which is always appreciated. \n10/10 would do again. (Already am!)

I had a reservation on a Friday at 9PM at Quality Italian. When I arrived, it was pleasant to learn that my table was ready, and that we would be seated right away. However, they wanted to stick us (party of 2) in a depressing room in the way back (about a football field's distance from the hostess podium) right next to an alternate kitchen. I had been to the restaurant before numerous times and had good experiences, but for a Friday night and having secured a reservation, they could have been more accommodating. After I asked, politely, to be moved because of the ambiance and location of that highly uneventful and dull area, we waited for another 15 minutes only to be led to the first table in the dining room (where you can still have one foot touching the hostess podium), which had been vacant since I first arrived. I was extremely insulted, because I had seen other unoccupied open tables scattered around, but yet they chose to mock my request. They give me the two extremities of the restaurant. They claimed that I did not want to be seated next to a server's station. If you have been to Quality Italian, they have many of these and that is pretty much unavoidable. I don't mind that at all; I just didn't want to be placed in that bleak back room, which was for tourists who just want to eat and not care about ambiance, and next to a kitchen entrance. The manager Dan came out and tried to make it right by seeing that I get 'table of my choice.' He was nice, offered me free drinks (I refused), and acted much more professional than the hostess, who was not helpful and continued to argue semantics with me over my request. After waiting another 15 minutes, we are finally seated at a nice table. The waiter ignored us for 1st 10 minutes or so; the only thing he accomplished was bringing out two glasses of tap water from the back, which in a fine restaurant, I have never seen this...ever. Water is always poured at the table. HO- The food ended up being pretty good.

As with most steak restaurants, cocktails are great and the wine-by-the-glass list is extensive. We began with a shared octopus appetizer, tasty but cooler than room temperature and when asked if we liked it, we did mention the temp. We shared the chicken parmesan which is served in a unique style and was tasty but again not warm enough, but we did not mention this to the server who was attentive and cheerful but not obtrusive. The portion of chicken was too much for us; what a shame to leave it which we did. Much to our surprise and completely unnecessary was a complimentary dessert in response to our appetizer 'complaint.' We will certainly return.

I am not a big fan of restaurants that insist on credit cards to hold reservations, and even less of a fan of measured drinks at the bar. That being said- we arrived early, had drinks at the bar and were seated right on time. We didn't like our table and were quickly and happily moved.\nGarlic Bread brought to the table was delicious and we started with the Chicken Parm Pizza and Sausage Toast as appetizers; not only were both tasty, but it would have been enough for a meal (and we were 4 ). Our waiter explained the dinner menu and we ordered filet mignon, veal chop, pork chop and cavatelli, as well as truffle fries and spinach as sides. It was way too much food. Every thing was great, except for the pork chop, which was a little overcooked and dry, but was better as you got closer to the bone. We were told it was prepared to medium well and it was. The issue was addressed and we were asked if it could be taken back, but it really was OK\nNo room for dessert but we were brought ice cream to make up for the pork chop issue. Nice touch of hospitality.\nThe check came and we found we were charged for a bottle rather than a glass of Pinot Noir. It was taken off the check , but kind of makes one wonder....We never really go over our checks that carefully, but will certainly start to- It was a $44 error.\nI wish the location was somewhere else in the city- not really a fan on dining in Midtown.

SHell fish tower was excellent. Steak was good but not near the best I have had. the chicken parm was interesting and tasty. But it was ground up chicken not cutlets..

The food was OK but not memorable, and given the cost, memorable was anticipated. Three requested menu items were not available, and our waiter did not advise us until after we asked for the item.

Took my wife there for her birthday dinner with the family. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We had the chicken parm pizza and the pork chop with cherries and crispy sage. Food service was prompt with many people to attend to the tables. We were going to a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center - it was just a short walk after a fine dinner. Would highly recommend.

We of course tried the chicken parmesan which was delicious but extremely filling - but the good news is that we have leftovers for a week. The honey was a nice, subtle touch. Since we only went as a table for 2, we only had enough room for the chicken parm and 2 appetizers - the beefsteak tomato straciatella (very good - the pistachio added really nice flavor) and the carne cruda (not bad, but not my favorite). The bread was delightful but as everyone warns, don't fill up on it too much since you want to save room for everything else. Service was the only area of improvement as we did have to wait quite a while and the staff neglected a birthday request despite my note in my OpenTable reservation as well as a conversation with the reservationist.\n\nWe'd love to go back one day to actually try the steak and pork chop.

We were lucky to get a last-minute reservation (albeit on a frigid Tuesday night, which seemed to have no effect on the obnoxious noise level!) and weren't disappointed. The bar was lively and served up a nice version of the standard Old Fashioned (The Midtown), the food was delicious and we really loved the corn brulee side dish...it easily could've been on the dessert list!

The veal, the steak, the kale carbonara, the spaghetti squash aglio olio, the ricotta ice cream, the ferry ice cream, the lemon tart and the freshly filled canolli are delicious!!!! Do not go past the carne crudo (aka steak tazte) or the veal for two or you will have severe food envy!

The meals of our group of four were delightful but my overall dining experience was mixed. The online dinner menu was somewhat different from the restaurant menu...and much more expensive . The steaks and seafood dishes were excellent;so too were the appetizers and vegetable side dishes. But several of the waitstaff repeatedly banged into my chair. One of the waiters graciously apologized. We were seated near the back of the restaurant, a delightful spot. But, perhaps they added one table too many .

Incredible time at Quality Italian. Their staff just exceeds expectations with their professionalism and attention to detail. The food is amazing and leaves you satiated without being overstuffed. Things to not miss: scallops crudo, eggplant polpettine, porterhouse agnolotti, and chickem parm for 2. So many signature dishes that I love... it's often hard to make a decision, as my stomach is only so big! The decor is beautiful and the seating includes cozy options and more business-like tables, so it's suitable for a date or a business meal. \nCame for dinner before a concert on New Years Eve. The place was buzzing with holiday cheer, but nothing too chaotic or crazy, just good energy. It's always great to have a location that doesn't force you into a prix-fixe menu, so we were able to order all the favorites right off the menu. It was a great decision to kickoff the night of madness. Great choice and would recommend to anyone!

Went to QI a few nights ago with 7 friends and family and had a great time. The Chicken Parm Pizza was a crowd pleaser as always. If you go you must get it and try all of the accoutrements. Food was awesome, wine was fantastic and all at reasonable NYC prices. I would have given this review 5 stars all around but our waiter was a bit over the top, loud and a bit obnoxious. But all in all we had a blast and QI still remains one of my favorites in all of Manhattan.

This was by far one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in NYC. Everything about it was just amazing. The bread, the wine and of course the food. You must order the corn brulee as a side, it's just outstanding! I am definitely coming back here for dinner as their menu is different.

Went for brunch just after Christmas and the food was outstanding! Everyone in my group really \nenjoyed it. The only negative comment I would make is the bloody mary I had was a bit on the sweet side....the mix was non-traditional....it wasn't bad just was not like a bloody mary. The eggplant brunch special was excellent and I would highly recommend it.

I went here for my girlfriend's birthday and had a great time. We both loved the food, the meat was well seasoned and tender. The service was attentive but not interruptive. The only thing I didn't like was the s'more dessert we had, it was executed poorly. However I highly recommend this restaurant as everything else was right on point.

Our experience dining here for my husband's birthday exceeded our expectations. The service was top notch. The food was outstanding. We had the chicken parm, which is served appearing as a pizza...but is absolutely delicious chicken parm. They have a side dish of corn creme brûlée that is sweet yet savory to compliment the dinner and ridiculously good. If you opt for cannoli's for dessert they are filled table side by the waiters. Dinner here was a fine dining experience, enjoyable from beginning to end!!

We had an early reservation and assumed we would be able to get lunch or dinner since it was a Saturday. The menu was extremely limited and brunch was the only meal being served. The food was excellent (some of the best shrimp cocktail!), just not exactly the options we were hoping for since we were considering this meal and 'early dinner.'

I will just jump in...\n\nWe tried the chicken parm-pizza. It was not as satisfying as a pizza because there was no crust. Along the edges it was a bit fried, which was good; but that needed to be all the way to the middle of the pie for us to like it more. However, if you missing eggplant parmigiana, like my girlfriend was, then this will not disappoint you. It really tastes like it even though it's just chicken, cheese and sauce.\n\nWe also tried their sambucca tea. It was thick like honey, but also too sweet, like honey in coffee.\n\nThe ice cream is not to be missed. The flavors are rich and delicious.\n\nWe've been here several times, so we are working our way through the menu. So far, my favorite was the corn gnudi; hers was the octopus appetizer. \n\nThe restaurant is so well run and kept. The service is efficient and attentive. The piped in music has always been good, but our last night it was a totally inappropriate--death metal or something like it. The crowd is largely old and money. Metal is not appropriate for hearing aids and an expensive, elegant evening.\n\nPs. Don't get me wrong, there was also plenty of other demographics there; but the plurality is the older crowd.

We had a very nice time at Quality Italian. This was our second visit. Don't miss the Bloody Marys! Outstanding! Brunch is good with a nice twist on some traditional favorites. However, the service could have been better. Our servicer took a very long time to get to us (to the point that we had thought they had forgotten us) which was annoying since they bring the menus. We couldn't even use the time to weight our meal choices. The food was wonderful but our servicer would disappear for long periods and not check back with us.. This marred an otherwise outstanding experience.

Kate was a great server. The chicken parm is really for 3-4 people. Lobster dish yummy, fish is really nice and simple. The spaghetti squash.... Off the chart! Salads are not necessary!The ricotta spread appetizer was really good, So light and refreshing was the mixed fruit and champagne zabaglione sauce. We had great martinis. This restaurant is upscale casual italian not gourmet foodie italian. Cool decor. Definitly a good choice for our group of 8; Our 23-26 year old kids/ friends and the 'tag along' 50 something mom and dad had a great time at a nice round table!!

This place feels less Italian and more like American contemporary with a few pasta dishes (note: I didn't know the official name of the restaurant was Quality Italian Steakhouse so I guess I should not have expected a true Italian restaurant). That said, the food is very good with a great wine list. My party started with the grilled octopus and eggplant polpette. Both were excellent, with the polpette being the larger of the two. We then ordered the branzino, the seared diver scallops, and corn gnudi. Of the three, get the corn gnudi. It's a really excellent gnocchi variant that is stuffed with ricotta cheese. \n\nService is really attentive and accommodating, spending the time to tell you what you are getting into. Staff is knowledgeable with the wine list as well. Ambiance is warm and open. Noise level is pretty reasonable for as large a space as it is.

I have been to Quality Italian several times. The food and service never disappoint. We had a delicious meal. The only thing I could say that was missing was that the restaurant had no holiday decorations - it was not festive at all. A little disappointing but the food, staff and service certainly made up for that.

Brought five of my friends here to celebrate my birthday. From the first negroni to the last glass of Montenegro and everything in between was perfection. The service was fantastic. The octopus and steak tartare were my favorite appetizers. Dry-aged porterhouse angulotti and corn gnudi were the crowd pleasing pastas. My boy and I shared the 24oz tomahawk steak as an entre and it was to die for. Finished off the meal with my favorite Ferraro Roche gelato. Can't wait till next time.

This resturant was one of the most outstanding place to eat, with attentive service the food was \nWonderful. My friend and I went into the city for a play , we were going somewhere but heard about Quality Italian Steakhouse, as we were going to another steakhouse. We had the Porterhouse for Two. It was the most delicious steak I have had in along time. Our server Ernesto \nWas very professional, the gentlemen that were sitting next to us spilled some wine on my friends coat, Ernesto saw it and went to get the hostess she came over and gave my friend a ticket to have her send the bill to Qual
