Wow, the portions have gotten much smaller and the prices have gone up. Not worth the money. I've gone here a number of times and the quality keeps getting worse. Won't be going back!

The only reason to go here is good value for domestic beer and free bread. The food is disappointing. If you've ever had a good steak, this place abuses your intelligence. Just not good, and in my 1 hour there they messed up 4 other orders including mine. Get a few large beers, chat with the beautiful bartender and leave. Let the tourists keep this place alive

A little about me...I live in midtown NYC and eat at all types of restuarants from the 0 to the 5 stars and have eaten at outback well over a dozen times. Outback is my favorite chain restaurant in the city. This place provides excellent value given the reasonable prices. No the steaks you get here are not Peter Lugers or Mortons but for $25 with two large sides- you really can't complain. That brings me to the next topic- the menu is diverse and has something for everyone. There of course is steaks and then they have seafood, pasta, salads etc. Most entrees come with two side which run the spectrum from healthy (veggies and salads) to unhealthy (fries and loaded baked potatoe). My recomendation is get the 9 oz victoria steak with say veggies and fries or veggies & salad. Drinks- They also have some interesting drink concoctions and a good selection of beers. A big plus for me is that the soda you can have free refill. The desserts are very reasonable as well - the carrot cake is above average. What I love most about this place as a NYC eater is the spaciousness of the accomomodations- even if you are just two people you still can get a both that sits 6 people without any hassle whatsoever. For anyone who regularly eats out, you know you can sometimes practically sitting on someone's lap. The place is usually not crowded so the wait's are minimal if any. Service- I have never had any problem with service- water is filled up in a timely fashion, the free bread is replenished very quickly if requested and the staff is usually very pleasant and does periodic checkins. My only complaint about this place is that I think that some of the foods have way too much salt and if that is a concern this may not be the restuarant for you. So if you are really hungry, want spacious seating arrangements and don't want to break the bank- this is the place for you.

Went there for lunch today, surprisingly quiet for lunchtime. The food was mediocre at best. I got the Honey-Lime Chicken wrap, one side of the wrap had barely any sauce at all and the other had so much so that it was dripping out of the end, making it soggy and messy to eat. The veggies on the side were very tasty. A friend ordered the buffalo strips appetizer as a meal, be warned, the portion is very small. The drinks are good, I would recommend the Strawberry Passion margarita. The waitress took quite a while to come back to take our order, and our food took pretty long to come out, consider how empty the place was. I found everything on the menu (with the exception of sandwiches and appetizers) to be too overpriced. Not bad, but definitely nothing special.

Had out-of-town friends who were insistent on finding out whether anything special or different about a NYC Outback. Answer: no. Bloomin' Onion still a mega-caloric fry-fest, steaks still mediocre, staff still cheerful (probably more aspiring actors/actresses in this crew than Outback Dubuque, though). With about a thousand terrific NYC-bred steakhouses, why eat exactly the same food you can get back home?

Ordered through Seamless web at 11:30am and food was delivered 12:10pm. Ordered the Sliced Prime Rib Sandwich with a side Caesar Salad and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Portions were ample, food was hot and everything was prepared great!
