Arrived late Friday night. Staff visibly tired. Service was acceptable though infrequent. Food was acceptable. Ordered rare steak with coconut shrimp. The shrimp was good - though a bit over-breaded. The steak was O.K. but a bit over done. Partner ordered a Porterhouse and it frankly looked boiled more than grilled. Almost no grill marks - very unappetizing. He ended... More

Great service and large meals. Good value for money. Ordered a chicken salad and it was huge and extremely filling!

Since I stopped eating beef awhile ago, every now and then my wife and daughter drag me to a steak house. They report that the prime rib remains excellent. Of interest to me were an increasing number of non-beef choices. I had the Parmesan chicken, a new entree that was quite good. Even better was the blackberry sangria, which might... More

We went to the Outback steak house in Cupertino on a Sunday night at 5pm. The parking lot was almost full in front of the restaurant, despite the bar being completely empty at that time. This Outback is located adjacent to the Apple campus in Cupertino, so the place is totally packed for happy hour on weekdays. In fact you... More

This is our local place for dinner when we crave a Blooming Onion, an excellent salad or a steak. This is the first time we actually made it for happy hour, which gave us a chance to get smaller sizes of appetizers, which is great for the 2 of us. We enjoyed both the Coconut Shrimp and a small serving... More

I am familiar with Outback Steakhouse from my trips to Dallas where I went several times, therefore I had no doubts I'll visit in Cupertino branch as well. The onion soup is especially fun dish and so I make sure to always take it for starter. I'm not a big fan of the seafood served there, as they are far... More

The service and food are good. This is not a five star restaurant; but, it surely serves a purpose in that the menu is diverse and the place is always clean. Virtually across the street from Apple Computer's headquarters. Outdoor seating is good from May through October. We like the wedge salad and a small steak once in while and... More

The booths are a bit on the small side for four people. The food is ok, the usual menu from this chain.

Our family has come to this restaurant for several years and we have always enjoyed the limited number of items we have sampled. The chicken on the barbie is tasty and comes with steamed veggies that you can make even healthier by asking for them to be served without butter. If you go at a popular time, you will probably...
