The only complaints I have were, a few pieces of the wagyu were too tough and fatty to be edible, and there was nothing special or superior done for the birthday boy. Not even a dessert on the house for a $400 tab at the end of the night for 2 diners. So why bother to ask if we are celebrating anything special? Otherwise, everything was fine.

We were celebrating my graduation from GW and she brought out a small glass of champagne to celebrate. We were also sitting next to a couple who were fairly drunk and rowdy and she handled it eloquently while also taking care of our table. We can’t say enough good things about Grace! Now to start on our food experience, to start, the wine list was well curated. We each had something different but all were delicious. The fresh baked rolls that come at the beginning are heaven in a bun! We each ordered the filet mignon with a sauce and then shared the lobster Mac and cheese and mashed potatoes, all to die for!!! The filet just melted in your mouth and was exceptional. Finally we finished off with some ice cream and a crème brûlée, which was topped with fresh berries. Absolutely delicious and a great way to cap off our celebration. If you’re looking for a class steakhouse, with excellent cuts, great wine, delicious sides and incredible service, RARE is the place for you!

We had a large party that was seated in the lovely and less noisy upstairs dining room. Everyone enjoyed the cocktail and wine selections and the special-ordered cheese curd starters that are not to be missed! Rare was able to accommodate one diner’s vegetarian needs nicely and everyone enjoyed their entrees. I recommend the lobster bisque and chopped Caesar salad (delish anchovy-infused dressing). Also, the service staff were so nice and treated us all like family, which was awesome. Would def recommend Rare to anyone looking for a delicious meal in a posh and inviting setting!

The prices are on the lower end of expensive steakhouses ~60-75 for a dry aged cut, the portions are generous, the cocktails are amazing if not a little overprice and the service is extremely attentive and anticipates your needs without being overbearing. Food came out at reasonable times. My only complaint would be my steak was marginally over salted, but the dry aged flavor was strong and they do a proper steakhouse cook that’s not afraid to give you rare/medium rare when you ask for it.

Never seen a ribeye so hard to cut , no on the other hand both have good mouth flavor meaning the kitchen is just not doing a good job fallowing the chef and they are buying cheap meat ... hope they improve , Not trying to kill the place

The steaks and seafood are always cooked to perfection and the service is top-top notch. This visit we had Patrisia and she and the support staff were amazing. Everyone was so attentive and helpful. Ernesto and Martin at the front of the house were wonderful and welcoming as always. Their assistance with our wine choices was greatly appreciated. After a hard week at work I couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing amazing way to start our weekend. Thank you all!

Upon arrival, the place looked and felt expensive. I loved the ambiance. I ordered the filet mignon medium well with the chipotle aioli sauce and creamed spinach. I definitely enjoyed the steak and creamed spinach. Both came out hot and were delicious and cooked to perfection. Prices are a little steep but I enjoyed the food. I also ordered the Tropical Fizz drink and Riesling to drink. Both were good. It's a nice restaurant for a date night or special occasion.

The ambience, decor, attention to detail and delicious food were a pure delight. My son had the steak which melted in your mouth. The appetizers were served family style and our meals were delicious. Allison our and server was wonderful, accommodating and well versed on the menu and recommendations. Thank you for providing a birthday cupcake to commemorate my son's day! We had such a great time, we virtually closed the restaurant being one of the last groups to depart. Thank you for a memorable evening. I can't wait to dine at your wonderful establishment again!

The service was also very attentive and the atmosphere is great for either business meal, date night, or special occasions.

They do not regularly offer beef dry aged past 45 days. I was expecting to have the option of beef 65-75 days dry aged. We did not find that out until we were seated. Otherwise the dining experience was great. We also ordered the A5 Japanese Waygu that was offered at 30/ounce.
