Diner Reviews
  • "Everything from the start to the finish was delightful. Dave the manager was gracious and informative. Staff could not do enough."

  • "We had the pleasure of dining at RARE650 the other evening. This is the only second time I have been there. The ambiance when you enter the restaurant / bar is stunning. The staff is friendly, attentive and are able to recall certain facts about their customers. I was amazed when one of the bartenders (can't recall her name) asked me a question about my job that only a few people would know. She said she remembered my face and what I drank from the last time I came in... which was over 2-years ago, which was my first and only visit since. That among many other things I've enjoyed at RARE650 have made my experiences outstanding."

  • "WHE I AM IN NEED OF A REALLY GOOD MEAL, WITH SOME REALLY GOOD SERVICE and a warm and professional environment. THIS IS WHERE I GO!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "What can I say, it was a total dinning pleasure and my wife of 29 years couldn't have been happy. Our booth was roomy and comfortable, the service was friendly, knowledgeable and their recommendations were on point. The food was fantastic with a twist that pleased a picky meat and potato guy like myself. The waitress recommendation on the red wine was superb; what else can I say? Valet Parking? Thanks for making me look good on my anniversary, warm regards."

  • "We usually rate this restaurant above 5 stars, but our experience this Saturday was extremely disappointing. We had dinner reservations at 9:30, were seated next to the loudest party in the place, our sparkling water was tap water, my drink came out wrong, and then my $100 surf and turf was surf and dirt. The steak was so overcooked, I needed some water to swallow it. Then after asking the server to please give me it medium well, it came out burnt and raw inside. I gave up, didn't eat it and threw it out on the way home. TERRIBLE for a restaurant that is usually so up to par. I don't think I'll be coming back for a very long time, if ever. And we frequented this restaurant at least once a month.....so upsetting. I hope they read this"

  • "Been here several times..........it just keeps getting better! From the minute you get out of your car til the minute you get back into it, you are swept away into a visual, atmospheric, culinary fantasy where perfection is only option. Go there for a special occasion, or no occasion..............but make sure you go!!"

  • "Service was excellent we asked for a quiet table and got a perfect one. Food was excellent we each ordered an appetizer but only needed one portion was big enough to share. Very pricey but a great place for a special occasion"

  • "I go to Rare often on a Thursday night with friends to have drinks and dance. Last night we decided to reserve a table and have dinner. Both the food and service was impeccable! I would not recommend dinner here if you are looking for a quite dinner date. Conversations were hard to have over the pumping DJ. I am not sure if there is a DJ every night. I would go back to have dinner there just not on a Thursay. I will stick to drinks and dancing on Thursday. The staff was friendly and eager to please as always!"

  • "I would not recommend this restaurant on a Thursday night. After 8:00 it was club like. We couldn't hear each other speak over the loud music."

  • "Both the food and service were excellent. Great wine selection."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I am a BIG Morton's fan but Rare650 did not disappoint. Morton's still gets the edge on Apps, Sides and Desserts but the Steak at Rare650 was fantastic and cooked to perfection. Had the NY Strip and it was right on par with the other top Steakhouses. And we also took advantage of the Wine Down Mondays. Perfect evening. Thank you."

  • "the place is beautiful but food and drinks were lousy and way overpriced. Started with lousy drinks from the bar. Of our appetizers- the sushi was fair and we ordered an app of kobe beef sliders medium rare which came out well done and tasteless. we informed the waitress who simply said sorry. My husband ordered the petite filet mignon which was 42 dollars and came with nothing. H asked for that medium rare and also came out extremely well done. We did tell the waitress who called over the manager and they cooked him another steak and took the appetizer we didnt like off the bill. Overall though not at all worth the prices they charged."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Excellent food and service in a nicely done space. The colossal shrimp were, well....colossally delicious and the drinks were as good as they were pricey. Tables were set rather close and hearing your neighbor's conversation was inevitable, if not unfortunate. I will definitely go back and ask to be seated somewhere different and I will order the calamari and shrimp appetizer."

  • "I thought the whole experience was great. My kids truely enjoy a good steak. As always, price is not cheap but worth it once in a while."

  • "This is some of the best sushi I've ever had outside of Nobu. The steaks were outstanding as was the service. Expect to spend a nice chunk of change for a fantastic meal."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Even back to the days of Sagamore this location has never disappointed us. Relaxing with a cigar and drinks on the patio after dinner is always the highlight of the evening. Hats off to the management that keeps this continuity of excellence ongoing. We will be back soon."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Returning for a few special occasions and had another great meal. The service was once again top notch and the food excellent as expected. We ate out on the outside terrace. It is a very nice spot just off the bar. And while at the start of dinner, all was quiet, a bit later, the bar and the DJ kicked in and it became very loud when the doors opened. I applaud the staff for trying to keep the doors closed as staff came in and out, but it did become distracting so keep that in mind if you are dining late and seated on the terrace. Upstairs is still the best place."

  • "great services but we sat by the entrance of the kitchen and our chairs constantly got hit by people. porter house and ribeye were not tastie and they were chewy"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Sorry but for the price I'd rather go to Rothmans....the outdoor smoking section was the best part. The ambiance is very nice & the hostess was very polite - the 'special' Rib eye was NOT worth $98."

  • "Father's Day eve dinner was horrific. Out of the four of us 1 dinner was not brought one was the wrong dish and the other 2 were inedible."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "too loud... too much smoking in the enclosed space by the entrance. Could not get from my car to the entrance door without smelling of cigarette smoke. The only places to wait to meet someone were either too noisy, too crowded or too smokey."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Nice environment. its so hard to find a restaurant where you can carry on a conversation with another person without having to shout. Rare650 was not overly loud which is "rare" these days. Thought that the sides were overpriced- I mean $12 for french fries? C'mon, thats nuts! Overall, I would eat there again"

  • "I booked RARE650 as a surprise to my wife on our anniversary. We both enjoy quality dining and premium steak. Everything was perfect. The ambiance, food, drink and service could not have been better. As an added bonus, its affiliation with the The Hollow Inn (where we stayed that night) qualified us for a discount. From the bread to the desert and everything in between, a great experience all around."

  • "Absolutely the best steak and veal chops. Prepared to perfection. The volume of conversation was extremely high and very uncomfortable. If you are looking for great steaks this is the place to be."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "At Rare, I expected perfection. We got very good. We arrived early on a quiet weekday for a birthday dinner & the wait-staff was 4 per table. Here, dinner should be perfect, yet the flaws were evident. The Mozzarella Buratta Salad w/ Bacon was excellent, but the Buratta wasn't quite creamy inside & the bacon underdone. The Uni, presented beautifully, rich & creamy, but so cold the ice crystals had to melt in my mouth before I could taste them. My Stuffed Shrimp were a bit overdone, but the Scampi & stuffing were outstanding, & the Truffle Mac/Cheese was delicious, but lacked Truffle. The Scallops w Truffle Risotto were very good. Dessert was perfect, & appropriately served with a discreet candle and happy birthday chocolate, no singing! "
