Ordered online and tried the curbside to go last night and it worked out well. Runner was pleasant. Restaurant was very busy but the food was still done pretty close to scheduled time. The packaging could be better. Styrofoam container doesn't keep juices in when bag is tilted in thru a window. Had steak juice in bottom of bag and... More

I'm not one to write a negative restaurant review but everything about this visit added up to a poor experience. I believe they may have been short staffed for the tables in the bar area. We grabbed a booth when one became available but then waited 10 mins to locate someone who could clean it off for us. We watched... More

Went there twice in one week to order take out for lunch. The first day had the Chicken Quesadillas which were absolutely awful. They were cooked on a flattop to a char. That's okay if you like charcoal. It was too far to take it back so I threw it out. The second day I ordered the Ahi Seared Tuna... More

We stopped here for lunch and were seated immediately. I had the unlimited loaded potato soup and the house salad which was a good choice. The soup was really good and the salad was fresh and crisp. Outback consistently has the best salad of any restaurant where I've eaten. Our waitress, Sarah, was very polite and professional.

My wife and I visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had the Blooming Onion, I had a Ribeye, while my wife had Prime Rib. The service was excellent, and the Steak and Prime Rib were done just right. Would definitely return!

Usually this chain gets it right, not so much this time. Staff friendly and attentive, food came out quickly. My burger was dry and bland. Once I added onions, mayo and mustard it was eatable. Beer was nice and cold.

My family and I chose this Outback for my dad's 49th birthday. As a general, one-sentence synopsis, the experience was average. I had expected everything to be a little better—service especially—than it was, considering we were celebrating someone's big day; however, we made due with reality (and ate a lot of cake afterwards!). One positive to the experience was that... More

Met friends for lunch at the Outback on East 86th Street. The food was good. The service was great. The restaurant was clean. We were there for lunch. The potato soup was very good. The table brought to the bed was very delicious. The bloomin onion was quite delicious. .

Haven't been here in years, and they've revamped the interior quite nicely. The bloomin' onion was just as fatty and delicious as I remembered. Steaks came out at the right temperature, if it hadn't been for the young server calling all of us "Hun" after everything she said it would've been 5 stars. Overall great casual dining experience!

We had a really good time with our friends, and the food was good. Not 5 star good, but you know what I mean. I love that they have so many healthy options. I had the fish tacos, which weren't on the healthy menu, but I changed out the fries for veggies so it felt really healthy. The tacos were... More
