A word from Rare Steakhouse
Rare Steakhouse is a unique space that fuses contemporary dining in a non-traditional kosher restaurant setting. It crosses the lines to create a singular synergy, bringing kosher fine dining to a new level. From interiors to cuisine, Rare Steakhouse permeates trend. "In a city littered with "classic American steakhouses,' you have to cook and present yourself with a little chutzpah to stand out," says owner Baruch Sandhaus. The goal, to redefine the cookie-cutter approach to fine dining for its respective clientele; while introducing a new way of dining for Floridians and travelers alike – removing the association that kosher cuisine is exclusively about religion. At Rare Steakhouse you can find some of the most prestigious cuts of meats available on the market. Rare Steakhouse is the one of the newest and coolest restaurant in town. It is a RARE find in a HOT location, but well done on prices and food. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Shame they made it kid friendly. Was better before."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "This is a kosher restaurant which working with its limitation, presented dishes artfully. The dishes were served hot. The wait staff was well trained. Water glasses were filled and with a napkin wrapped around the pitcher so there were no drips. The 3 bean soup was hearty and had a bit of a bite which is rare for a three bean soup. The iceberg wedge was served in three sections with one served on a slice of red onion, one on a slice of red tomato and one on a slice of yellow tomato all garnished with crisp onion noodles. Had a hamburger on a moist, grilled bun, cooked as ordered and too big to finish most important was that the burger was almost without filler. Forget the religious context, food is good and portions can be shared."

  • "Rare is an excellent kosher restaurant for a special dinner. In fact, it's an excellent restaurant all around. I've been here multiple times and the food never fails to be delicious and well-presented. The steaks are delicious and expertly cooked. The staff is generally very helpful and attentive. My only wish is that they still had the ropa vieja appetizer on the menu. It was outstanding."

  • "The Rare Steakhouse is a restaurant on the cusp of being great, but the food is just not quite there yet. The chef makes the mistake of assuming that every palate likes super sweet sides or excessively dressed and loads everything with sugar and covers everything with a gooey sauce. That sweetness and goo overwhelms the savory and simple elements of the food making it less than an ideal meal."

  • "We had terrific service at Rare, although the meal ended up going rather quickly. Our hamburger slider appetizers were so delicious that we would come back just for those. Our waiter suggested a particularly large rib-eye, which indeed was quite good. But the sweet potato and truffle fries we ordered with it were bad - completely unacceptable at any restaurant, but at these prices and at this type of restaurant, their sogginess wasn't excusable. Also, the room left a lot to be desired; it was simply too big and the lobby/entry way were a little off-putting."

  • "we had a lovely meal meat was cooked to perfection the starter selection was ok the waiters it seemed a bit disorganised besides being a little pricey the all and all i would recommend this restaurant and i would come again"

  • "I have been visiting the Miami Beach area for close to 35 years, Rare steakhouse is by far the best kosher food/dining I have ever had there, the management and all employees are extremely courteous and helpful, with a very hands on approach with customer service. During my stay last week I dined at the Rare twice, it was outstanding, from the food to the ambiance including the extensive wine selection, I had a special request which was handled in perfect manor, I would recommend Rare Steakhouse to anyone."

  • "Food was delicious, the Steak was really good but it took very long from start to finish, almost 2 hours"
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "The server was very friendly and accommodating but the food was just ok. We ordered burgers and they took over an hour to be served. When they did come out, they gave us the wrong burger order; the manager was called to "fix" our order. This new order took another 20 minutes to be served. It was a negative experience."

  • "Nice kosher meat restaurant in 41st Tower, Miami. I live in England, so glad to find a restaurant that is a proper restaurant and not just a kosher cafe. Good food and staff friendly.,"

  • "After editing over 30 minutes, got a busboy to take our order. Waiter never came by to say anything. Wonderful food. Very poor management. Great restaurants have managers who stop by and see if things are ok. A shame because food is great."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "I have never in my entire life had a longer wait for a more mediocre meal in my entire life. Not only was the sushi tasteless, but it took an insane amount of time to receive the stingy tea cup of sauce that could have tried to save the meal. We, the Jews walked through the desert for forty years but once we were out it took another forty to get our spicy mayo."

  • "tried to make a reservation 3 times and left voice messages . After being spilled on we moved.There was a lack of printed menus to the point that while ordering, the head waiter was gently pulling them from our hands.The spinach appetizer was bland, though the chicken poppers were good.Overpriced Angus steak was overly fatty and tasteless ($55!!!) and my daughter's "well done" steak was burnt on the outside and raw inside. We were not given steak knives until I asked 3 times. Someone ordered the salmon on a plank which was bland.When we were asked by the head waiter about our meal and were politely candid , we were told that it'll be better "next time" we come. Ha! By the way, they returned my phone call 2 days later.."

  • "A quality Kosher presentation as good as any other good restaurant. A for presentation A for quality A for taste A for price not cheap but which good restaurants are cheap Get what you pay for Would defiantly go again"

  • "Returned to Rare on our frist trip to South Beach in 3 years. The new location is much larger but the drapery gives each room the same intimate feel. The Food was better than we remembered. Our guests do not keep Kosher and thought the food was as good as any non-kosher steakhouse. We were there Christmas Eve and I'm guessing some of the regular staff was out as the waiters were not up to the same quality as the food. Entrees were delivered to the wrong table, steak knives were not brought out with the Steaks (the meat was so tender. 2 members of our party ordered the Rare Classic steak and each was delivered with different sides and sauces (again the sides and sauces were so good that it did not matter). Great Food, Great Evening."

  • "We ate here on Sunday night 11/10/13. The appetizers and entrees were very small portions, and after a meal that cost 104.00, we were still hungry although the little food we received was delicious. The waiters were excellent."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "Found this restaurant on open table. We were unaware this was a Kosher Restaurant prior to arrival. The food and service is excellent, the wine list is Kosher and we found them to be very good."
    Dined on 6/13/2013
  • "The reviews we read before dining totally overstated the quality of the place, ambience of the restaurant felt like you were in a large gym in grade school eating hot lunch and steaks were way overcooked They should have taken the meal off the bill. Enough said."
    Dined on 6/11/2013
  • "To begin, Julie, our waitress was superb. Her timing was perfect and respectful of our privacy and speed at which the food was served. Overall, very nice evening...will be back!"

  • "My Wife and I were staying at a hotel nearby and chose this restaurant as we noticed it had good ratings but our experience was very disappointing. The wine list is very poor, the decoration is at it's minimum and very cheap, and the food was terrible. The tuna appetizer was fresh but flavorless, it got better after pouring a lot of salt and lime on it. My wife ordere a bone in Rib Eye whis was definitely not worth it's price and I had the chicken marsalla which I've had better ones at some regular diners. The only good experience was the service, very friendly."

  • "Service was Excellent and Food was excellent and promptly served. Great for special occaisions. Very Expensive, on the top end of kosher restaurant food pricing in the Miami area."
    Dined on 4/21/2013
  • "The restaurant had good food and the waiter's attention. Over the atmosphere was terrible, too much noise, to our super small table, a cold by the door faces the months you are eating, horrible. The girls who work the front desk are not good at answering. Plus the food is excellent. I do not know if I would recommend this restaurant. Depending on each hit or not. 'll Come back or not, I think this has much restaurant as well or better than this, and the price $ 300.00 with two people of that money to go to a better restaurant. They still have to improve a lot."

  • "My husband and I were in South Beach for a few days. Although there are good restaurants, Rare gave us an opportunity for a quiet, delicious , Kosher meal. The food was attractively presented and well- prepared, and the steak was fabulous. We are Kosher and never eat meat in a restaurant--what a treat! The service was great. Damon, the server was funny and attentive. I would highly recommend Rare to everyone--you don't have to be Kosher to eat in a good restaurant!"

  • "This was our 1st time dining at their new location at Tower 41. We had gone to the other location last January & loved it. They are still admittedly working out the kinks at their new diggs but the food was very good. The place was packed but we were seated immediately with our Open table reservation. When the food was taking quite a bit of time to come out of the kitchen, the waiter offered apologies, more bread, free wine for us and soda for the kids. Yeshiva break is always packed wherever you go so I will definitely come back on an " off" week again. Expensive but highly recommended."

  • "If you balance it against other kosher steakhouses, I would recommend. We went on a Saturday night and they did not have a bartender on staff and some of the food was not available. Frustrating."
    Dined on 10/27/2012
  • "Worst steakhouse at which I've ever dined. Salad was soupy, steak thin and fatty and overcooked. Creamed spinich was creamless. Avoid. The OpenTable description of the restaurant is very misleading."
