    This steak house is clearly at the bottom of the barrel. Way overpriced, and service that would embarrass Denny's . This is easily one of the biggest rip-offs in town. The bottom of the barrel as far as steak houses go.

    My wife and I first went to Shula's steakhouse in Orlando, in the Dolphin hotel, and loved it. Being from New York, it's not easy to get to Orlando so we looked up and found that there is a Shula's steakhouse on 43rd street and 8th avenue and weren't disappointed. It is now the place where we will go for our special occasions. Steak cooked perfectly with a appealing appetizer and side dish menu. the drink/wine menu was very good.

    We arrived 10min early and were immediately taken to be seated. But although they let us choose where we wanted to sit, they gave us the choice between 2 tables by the service entrance (only 1 table was taken at that time!). We could hear the staff talking and laughing loudly. We had the pre-theater menu. The food itself was just average. I was expecting more, especially for the steaks. For dessert, we wanted to change up for a molten chocolate cake and pay extra if required, but it wasn't an option so we ended up having 2 slices of cheesecake that barely have any cream cheese in it and something that looked like a failed-to-rise chocolate muffin with 1 teaspoon of really thick "lava" for $17 extra. Will not be coming here again.

    Service was absolutely terrible. The steaks were surprisingly good considering I wasn't expecting much for that area. Don't expect they'll know any kind of cocktail, event classics like an old fashioned or Manhattan, and their wine list is boring at best.

    I've been to a lot of steak houses - it's one of my favorite foods. So, yesterday I was celebrating a special day and decided to try Shula's for a special meal. The service was fine - attentive but nothing special. But, the food was very disappointing. I ordered a 24 oz. T-bone and couldn't wait to sink in. It was prepared as I like it - medium rare, with some great looking sides. But, the steak was not tender at all - chewy I would call it. Sides were just as disappointing. Au Gratin potatoes were terrible and asparagus were just ok. The price was on par with the most expensive steak houses around so it should have been a great experience. I would not go back and I would never recommend this place to a friend.

    Wanting a great steak my 23yo son and I chose Shula's based on my previous experience at other locations. We arrived at our reservation time (Thanks OpenTable!) and were promptly greeted and seated. All three courses were exceptional - we ordered the Chocolate Souffle - and cooked to perfection. The Martini's were outstanding and the selection of wines-by-the-glass is adequate. The full wine list is extensive.

    Shulas was a few minutes walking distance from where I was when I check Opentable. Even with the "football" theme, this is a gorgeous restaurant with the dark finish carpentry, really a step up in your average steakhouse decor. The Service was excellent, the cowboy rib eye was recommended and we liked it. The cream spinach could have been a bit more tender/creamier and the steak fries were just right. My son loved the Crab Mac & Cheese and I really enjoyed the seafood trio and the filet Oscar. We will return and try our luck with what looks like a yummy wine list and the porterhouse. I ordered the Decoy Merlot "Sonoma" and I think it was one of the better Merlot's I had by the glass in a restaurant in a long time.

    I have eaten at several Shula's establisthments and they are consistently excellent. If you visit this location, take time to visit the small bar adjacent to the dining room and and you may be lucky enough to find Jodi, a superior bartender and fun conversationalist. Our servers were on point through dinner and the food was amazing as always. Tried the twice baked potatoe this time as a side it was the best ever!!!

    We made reservations for restaurant week on a Thursday afternoon at 3:30. Although the restaurant was absolutely beautiful and romantic, I would have preferred to come for dinner. The lunch menu was great but the setting was just too dim for lunch and way too empty that it almost felt awkward, especially since they were setting up for dinner (candles, plates, forks). It felt like we were almost in the way. Other than that, the food was delicious and the service was amazing and I would totally come back for dinner!

    We very much enjoyed the quality of the food, the service and ambience were excellent. My husband ordered the sirloin steak and I ordered the salmon. Everything was very flavorful! We enjoyed the scrumptious carrot cake for dessert. I highly recommend Shula's for a wonderful meal prior to a show or just as a special treat.

    We ate at Shula's as part of a Restaurant Week deal after a play. Although we only had the $38 special menu, the wait staff treated us as if we were top-of-the-line customers. We came earlier than our reservation was for, and were able to be seated immediately. The decor was very classy and elegant. The food was delicious and well presented.

    Shula's has a football theme but it is in no way a sports bar - it is a warm and friendly steak house with classically well trained servers and excellent food. There was no scrimping on the restaurant week meal and while I've had slightly more tender steak the grilling was done to perfection and they waited until we cut into it to make sure it was cooked to our pleasure. The appetizers and desserts were excellent - a wonderful evening overall!

    There are lots and lots of steakhouses, Shula's is not a bad choice, and in the Times Square/Theater District area probably the best choice, food-wise. But I wasn't all that thrilled with service--first, two different bottles of wine I ordered were out of stock (and the waiter tried to have me purchase the wine the restaurant was clearly pushing--which was seriously overpriced), but they did at least comp us a glass of Malbec (but not the type of red I had wanted to drink)--then the prix fixe included dessert, but we had to leave for the theater and they were seriously slow about having a piece wrapped to go, so we left.

    If Restaurant Week is supposed to make you want to come back, it doesn't work. The Lobster bisque (very small serving) was just OK (Costco's is better!). The steak was just average -- I thought it would be amazing -- and the sherry sauce with it was really just plain watery. Fries were pedestrian. Cheesecake was GREAT! Service was stern and smile-less, but efficient. My drink was way too heavy with vermouth. Why would I go back to spend twice as much if this is what it is like?

Not only did they work as an outstanding team but the food is just perfect! I had a filet mignon and believe me, I have never eaten such a delicious and tender filet mignon and what can I say about the delectable cheese cake!!!!

    On Wednesday 7/23 I took a coworker out to lunch for restaurant week and we decided to try Shula's Steak House. It was conveniently located in time square near our office and its nicely placed a block away from the madness that can stir from the broadway shows. The ambiance was classic, a hint of minimalism and overall very clean. The decor looked new and spotless but similar to a traditional steak house it was elegant gave you warming feel. I enjoyed the wedge salad and the filet, it was cooked perfectly and properly seasoned. I look forward to my next visit. (9.5/10 - Would recommend to friends)

    went to Shula's during NY Rest week and ordered from the 3 course menu. the "8-oz sirloin" was a half an inch thick, maybe 5oz, tasteless piece of meat, which one might expect to get at a "poor man's BBQ". appetizer and dessert were ok, but we had to ask the waiter for whipped creme, even so it was part of the dish. during RRW i expect a restaurant to "wow" me to make me a regular client, not to cut corners to be profitable. i went to Shula's in CHI and MIA and was pleased. here in Manhattan, only 5 minutes walking distance from work, i will NEVER come back. PS: we still paid $140 for a "lousy steak" experience

    We've dined at Shula's Steakhouse in the WDW Dolphin in Orlando about 10 times in the past several years. We love it, and when we discovered that there was a Steakhouse in Manhattan we were so excited! To have one of those Shula's fillets...and the fantastic service...we could hardly wait! But, we were so disappointed. Yes, the fillets were good. But my rare was closer to medium rare, and my husband's medium rare was closer to medium. The mashed potatos were dry and the red wine demi-glace tasted more like a brown gravy from a diner. The server's never told us about any specials, nor did they describe any of the menu items, which is standard practice at the Dolphin. And, they were resetting the dining room for breakfast while we were eating
