The restaurant is phenomenal! The food, staff, atmosphere — all amazing. Can’t wait to come back!
A very nice experience with good food and service. I congratulated the manager.
Food was excellent, portion size is generous for the price. Only issue we had was waiting time to be seated, even though we had a reservation and arrived on time, we still waited about 20mins to be seated. Once seated, service was good and organized.
We had a reservation for 7:30 but were not seated until 8. They were very overbooked!,
As always! Good food, good service!
What else could one ask for?!
Great place to come when you want an excellent steak dinner with quality and flavor you can count on and you don't want to make any decisions other than what you want to drink or if you'll have a dessert. There's only one meal on the menu and you are going to want it all! Recommend going with the medium rare temp at Medium Rare. Food melts in your mouth with that delicious sauce that you want to dip everything in... Bonus tip: if you eat your first round of steak and fries, you get a second serving (if you want one). Don't say no to the bread -- it is to die for and you'll want to scrape up any remaining salad dressing with any crusts you have left. If you want a sturdy red wine, recommend the Malbec. Bon Appetit!
We had a great time and everyone involved enjoyed it!
Dinner with daughter and husband
Food was exactly as expected
Very good fries were just out of oil
Servers were especially friendly and professional
Delicious, tender steak and frites. Meal comes with salad and bread. Generous portions, took half home. Service was timely and friendly.
Reservation was at 7:15 pm for a party of 4. Ended up getting seated at 7:50 pm. Food and waiter service was great. A bit of a long wait to be seated.
We had to wait 45 minutes from the time of our reservation to being seated. They were running wayyyy behind and everyone was waiting that had reservations
Always find exceptional service here. Staff are friendly and address special needs if required. Great value too.
Great place! Energetic vibe and friendly service. Was there for my birthday and had a great time. Thanks!
Great food and service!
This was the first visit for my husband and me. I wish I could remember the name of our server because he was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our seat by the window, the fries, the secret sauce and our wine. The steak was okay. Our one big recommendation is do not heat apple pie to the point that the crust becomes mush.
First time there. Steak was delicious. But I thought portions would be bigger. When they said 2 servings of steak, I didn't realize the 2 portions would basically equal one regular portion. But it was very yummy food.
Great spot, but not many options for brunch. You order from 4 entrees and that's it. Unlimited mimosas though!
The service was fast, and our waiter did an excellent job accommodating us. The food was okay, not great not horrible—I’d give it a solid 3/5 but I expected more from a restaurant with such a limited menu. Glad I went and tried it, but probably won’t be returning.
Everything was fine until the manager kept walking by/looking at our table as soon we we put our spoons in our dessert. We weren’t overstaying the two hour mark and we ordered more food that we were in the middle of eating. It just made the end of the experience uncomfortable.
Our waiter was wonderful and had nothing to do with the manager rushing us.
I would probably go back but maybe to a different location with another manager... I would still recommend Clearlake park Medium rare to friends as maybe they would have A different experience.
I only meant to rate the overall experience, not the food as I didn’t get to eat there. We had reservations for 4 people at 8pm, we arrived at 7.53pm and they said we were early and that it would be about a 20 minute wait starting at 8pm. The number of people waiting ahead of us was large, we could tell the estimated 20 min was not true. I asked why didn’t they text us to alert they were running behind, the hostess didn’t care to give a proper answer or even apologize for the wait. I found it quite rude that arriving 7 minutes ahead of my reservation would be too early and that my wait time would only start running at 8pm. We decided to leave. At 8.35 pm I got a message saying the table was ready. I would have waited 40 minutes for a table I had booked in advance.
I've gone here 2 times in the past couple of months. Both times have been absolutely packed. So much so that a table for 5 people places the 5th person into the walking lane for wait staff and other guests.
The second round of steak was forgotten during this visit, and the server who helped us noticed it before we made mention of it and got right on it. The assistant who brought out the second round didn't have the steak done the way each guest asked, and we didn't make mention of it but just kept eating. The place was so loud we couldn't really hear each other.
Love the restaurant, and will absolutely come back for celebrations. It just seems that they're packing people in here to the walls or taking too many reservations beyond capacity.
Quality food but very rushed service.
Steak as usual was good and the portobello mushroom option great for our vegetarian guests.
The food and the waiter's service were outstanding, but the downside was the wait. Ee had reservations and still had to wait almost an hour to be seated.
Even with a reservation it took 30 minutes to be seated on 2/15/20. Once seated, the loud blaring music was too much - I finally had to say something to management. Included that it was our wedding anniversary in the resi but was not acknowledged or celebrated by staff as birthdays and other celebrations were around us. We really love this place, but this time.....
Great steak and a fun atmosphere!!
Great food, service, and experience. The place was crowded
Had to wait an hour to be seated with a reservation
My husband and I always eat here 2 days in row every time we are in the area, about twice a year. We love it’s great Neighborhood feel and the food is the best!
All though we had an 8:45pm reservation we weren’t seated until 9:42pm. Our server was great and accommodating
I have been to this Medium Rare at least a dozen times since it opened. The food is consistently delicious and the wait staff has always been attentive and courteous. These parts of the meal were no different this time around. Unfortunately, on this Valentine's Day occasion, my girlfriend and I had to wait more than 30 minutes to be seated despite arriving and checking in 5 minutes before our 7:45pm reservation. The restaurant had obviously over-booked for the evening but tried to blame the delay on their own customers for having finished their meals but not leaving the table. That started the evening off on a sour note. Other than the wait, everything was great and I'll probably go again because I do like the food, but only on nights when it is not expected to be busy.
I made a reservation for Valentine’s Day at 7:30pm. We arrived at the restaurant 5-10 minutes before our reservation and found the entire entrance area packed with others waiting to be seated. We crowded in with the rest of the people because it was chilly outside and we were seated around 8pm. Our food and server were both lovely, but it would have been nice to have gotten a complimentary glass of wine or dessert or even an apology for the extended wait time and lack of space to wait in (especially on a day like Valentine’s Day). Overall, we did enjoy the meal and I would most likely return, but not on a holiday.
The streak was so good and you get a refill! I will definitely be returning
Valentines Day. We expected the restaurant to be super crowded which was fine. The food was great as always and the servers are really very nice. The main problem was they just brought out the dishes much too quickly. Before I finished my salad the first plate of steak arrived and before I was even halfway done with that the second plate arrived. I asked that it be brought back when I was closer to finishing my first plate which they did. If we had eaten according to their schedule we would have been in and out within 35 minutes or so. We will go back when it’s not a special occasion as we really enjoy the food and ambience on a “normal” day.
The menu is simple, the food is Delicious, and the staff is great. Without a doubt recommend.
If you want a tasty steak this is the place to go.
The waiters at Medium are excellent. They can't control the noise level but they can control the music level.
But there is a theory among management that the music provides privacy to conversations at close together tables.
That's not the solution if the tables are too close together--I don't know that they are.
It simply means that everyone is yelling to be heard.
I'm not the only one with this opinion. It is widely discussed. Management should respond.
It was a nice experience. The food was tasty, but my steak was a bit gristly.
Great food but loud music makes it difficult to hear conversations. Front dining room is worse than second room.
