Mothers DayThe food was amazing but the service was slow. It is not inexpensive and for the price we felt that the service could've been better. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable but we did wait longer than we should have. Granted it was Mothers Day so maybe that was the reason. We will definately try it again on a non holiday.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDining out with friendsFood was excellent!! My husband and I shared the skirt steak and salad and they portioned it for us when being served which was very nice idea so we had our own plates to start with. The portions were very generous. My only complaint would be the sitting arrangements. We were a group of 4. They first wanted to put us at a table right next to the bar and we said no. Then they moved us upstairs which was too secluded and a huge party of 20 was at the table behind us. Next time, make a special request where u like to be seated.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSweet spotThis was our first time at Rare. It was our anniversary and I wanted to take my wife someplace special. The experience was great! From the time we arrived, our table was ready when we walked in the door. I had requested a table away from the bar and that is what they did. It was much quieter than the bar area, which is pretty loud....especially when the music starts. The waiter service we incredible...so accommodating. Our waiter was very professional and explained the menu and the specials excellently. After dinner, without saying anything, they brought my wife and I an ice cream with candles for our anniversary....a very nice touch. All in all, this was a very nice experience and would recommend Rare to others.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA steak lovers dream!Absolutely great steaks. Friends in my party loved the sushi also. Service was great!! Friendly and on top of things but not in your face. Bone in rib steak is perfect. Been here several times and have never been disappointed.

Great neighborhood steak/seafood place.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMcontinues to deliver!We have been repeat customers at Rare 650 over the past few years and it consistently delivers an very enjoyable meal and dining experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRare650 a perfect scoreI had an excellent time. The service was outstanding the food as well. The quality of service and food I received was worth the price.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMwas an awsome meal with greatwas an awsome meal with great service. A little pricy but looking forward to dining again4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Treat!I enjoyed everything about Rare650! Will definitely be going again. Place was sleek, sexy & gorgeous but still intimate and cozy– management ran like a well oiled machine. Staff was attentive without being pests.The food!OMG- Scallops perfectly prepared, steak was tender & juicy, sweet potato puree was an unexpected treat. My friend had asked for his medium well, it came back a bit too rare, he considered eating it like that but waitress reassured him it would be a quick fix- it was- portions were huge (I had Filet Mignon for breakfast! lol )Coffee was freshly prepared( hate it when the meal is ruined by bitter coffee) the profiteroles were sinful - enough for two. A bit pricey, but food and experience worth it4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe specials can be expandedThe specials can be expanded to more choices.The food was excellent and preparation was excellent also.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, the service andThe food, the service and the decor at Rare650 is absolutely amazing!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic find for special occasionRare650 is an upscale place for a special occassion. The focus is steak, sushi, and fresh seafood. My wife and I enjoyed all 3 categories. The winelist is long and there are many options by the glass including some rare, if not pricey, vintages. The list is given to you on an iPad. We sat in the enclosed outdoor area which was charming but a little loud. It was not a struggle to talk but you did have to combat the noise. It is a romantic option for a special meal for sure, but expect pricey entrees and over-priced appetizers and side dishes costing double what you would expect. Much is a la carte. We would return for a special occasion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNever Disappointed at Rare650Yet another great meal at Rare650. Shared the tuna tartare sushi roll to start, amazing as always. Nice salads (Caesar and house) as a second course. Seared scallops w/risotto entree was fantastic, special stuffed shrimp appetizer (as an entree) was great as well. Cinnamon sugar doughnut dessert was delicious. They didn't have the bottle of wine we picked from the list (glitch in updating the information) so we were offered an even better bottle at the (lower) price of our original choice. Service was attentive and knowledgeable, maybe a little more gregarious than I prefer but still professional. All in all, you can't go wrong w/Rare or Blackstone's, Scotto has nailed the steak house/seafood formula.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a 6:30 reservationWe had a 6:30 reservation and it wasn't too busy when we got there. We were greeted and seated right away. Service started out great but as the room filled up the service dwindled. The food however was phenomenal from the salad straight through to the dessert. Overall it was a good experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to the restaurantI have been to the restaurant several times and am never disappointed. My friends had never been there until Saturday night. They really loved it and will be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner, as always, was perfectlyDinner, as always, was perfectly prepared and delicious. Very good service. We sat in one of the outside enclosed porches, which was nice because it was actually a little quieter there then inside the restaurant. One of my local favorites for steak and lambchops.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful birthdayWe had a wonderful birthday celebration at Rare 650.

The food & service were awesome! The Sunday "surf & turf" special was unbelievable. The portions were huge and we were so full, but the food was so good, it was hard to stop eating.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time on myWe had a great time on my birthday at Rare 650. I had an excellent crab cake, scallops and risotto, my husband enjoyed his steak. Great drinks and dessert too! A wonderful dining experience.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service, but priceyAmbiance,decor,food and service were all outstanding. We all thought it was over priced though. One doesn't goto a high end steak house/sushi bar and expect to get away without spending $200+ a couple, but $300 we thought was over the line. We will try another high end equivalent before running back to Rare 650.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our diningWe really enjoyed our dining experience at Rare650.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Dining ExperienceWe had a family dinner last Saturday and were genuinely impressed with top notch food, attentive and courteous service and the classy ambience. The crab cake and evening’s special roll appetizers were rich and flavorful. The porterhouse steak that I shared with my son was top notch. The food was so good and I ended up taking home the left over steak. Overall, my family had a great meal and wonderful time.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food wereThe service and food were excellent. This restuarant is expensive but you get what you pay for. The noise level is high but has a great energy level.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was unfortunate that weIt was unfortunate that we were seated next to a group of men who were totally unrully and very loud. It would have been nice if the Head Waiter or even our waiter went over there and asked them to tone it down. I was with a group of business associates and we could not hear each other.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBring the kids! (What! the kids??)Always love taking my bride out here for date night but finally chose to take our 2 young children with us. Our kids are not savages but we still had qualms about taking them out to a proper restaurant. Was glad to see there we a kid childrens food options.
We finally came out on a Sunday for the Surf and Turf. Really a great promo special to have on a quiet Sunday and the staff was quite accommodating to our family. We really enjoy a night our at Rare 650.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA little pricey but well worthA little pricey but well worth the expense. We will definately dine there again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treatThis was our fourth visit and we have never been disappointed with the food or staff. We are now planning a family birthday dinner there in June because there is something on the menu for everyone. The food is excellent and we look forward to returning.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent. ServersAlways consistent. Servers are attentive and knowledgeable. Food is always great. The main menu is always good !!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good service withoutVery good service without being too overbearing. The Sushi is the reason to go here as I thought the steak was just average (especially for the price). Great French Fries as well (and I dont usually eat them). The bar scene is certainly busy, and the smoke is thick when you walk outside.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful decor, very energeticBeautiful decor, very energetic crowd/loud. The skirt steak was delicious. The rest of my table was not fond of their steak selections, said they were bland. I remember one being the petite filet mignon. The mashed potatoes, cream of spinach, sauteed spinach and ceasar's salad were delicious. The mojito was horrible!
I would definitely go back. Keep in mind...very pricey.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAt RARE650 Everything is Done WellI was looking for a place to take my wife for her 30th birthday. My criteria were to find an upscale restaurant with an ample wine list and food selection to match. Rare650 far exceeded my already high expectations. The tremendous wine selection was coupled with delicious cuts of steak and lamb chops that melted upon impact. Although we didn't order sushi, this was no reflection on how rich it sounded (and looked, as you pass the sushi bar as you enter the restaurant). The occasion is the only reason we opted for dessert. We were tended to by our waitress, two others on the waitstaff, and no less than two managers checked in as well. The great night we hoped for is exactly what we got.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic and theFood was fantastic and the service was top notch. Server was helpful with each question and really knew her details when it came to steaks. Highly recommend but definitely on the really pricey side.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
