Fabulous food, friendly and attentive staff, a family favorite.
As always, excellent employees were professional, kind, humorous. Nice outdoor seating at this Cleveland Park location. Hopefully this expanded area can stay post-pandemic.
I love Medium Rare. It's easy, delicious, the service is great, and they have lots of comfortable outdoor seating. Only downside is the cost. For two people, it's easily $100.
We had reservations for Mother’s Day brunch. It was busy but the staff did a great job in the chaos and managed a lack of coffee cups well. The food was smaller portions for something called a “brunch” but everyone seems satisfied enough. Learning French phrases over the speaker while in the restroom was fun.
Great customer service. Really good steaks.
Great service! Great food! Great atmosphere! Most definitely 10/10
Had an awesome brunch!
The food and service was great, but I wish the music was not as loud especially with the restaurant being as small and cramped as it was (Cleveland Park location).
Had a fantastic dinner. Weather was perfect, so a great opportunity for outside dining. Had a great server who was friendly and helpful. Nice selection of wine. Didn’t expect a second round of steak and fries - but it’s always welcome!
We went to Medium rare for brunch and ate inside. The service was a bit flawed (they brought the wrong steak dish for my wife). It is still a good formula for brunch, with bottomless drinks, but it has also become more expensive.
Service and food was incredible. The GM introduced himself and the wait staff was on it!
Very nice place, good value, good food.
My only minus is the background canned music which is totally unnecessary.
Good food, drinks and the service was excellent and
All of your staff were friendly, attentive, and gracious. Your salad, steak frites, and bread really superb. We are passing the word, and you are now on our list of regulars. Thank you very much.
ps. We were a party of four: grandfather, grandmother, daughter, and granddaughter and you were extremely accomodating.
Maybe the best fries I’ve ever had. Steak was good, especially with the sauce.
Medium Rare has the best steak. Tender and really well-seasoned. The special sauce is excellent. But the bread, salad and fries are also top notch. Service is great. Truly a neighborhood gem.
Excellent food, fantastic service and lots of fun for brunch!
Love it for meat and no need to think too much as a result of set menu.
Birthday celebration at Medium Rare is even more special during Covid.
Great service, delicious food... and a secret second serving! I’d definitely recommend it!
Tasty steak served in two flights, so it didn't get cold!
Perfect spot for Easter dinner, and loved by all ages (grade school, high school, college kids and adults). Delicious food, great cocktails, and outstanding service. Menu perfect - instead of spending time looking at menu we could all catch up and enjoy a great dinner. It was also my husband’s birthday and the whole restaurant seemed to celebrate. We loved our servers - Armelle and Gabi! Highly recommend at any time.
sooo good. you gotta go. especially for brunch.
Great food, great atmosphere!
Birthday great food great place for a family meal
The staff is very friendly, and I would recommend sitting inside. The majority of the tables outside are on a sidewalk grate and the tables will topple over and spill everything. It happened to my table and two other tables while we were there. The food is good for it to be a 27$ Inclusive meal but again the table knocked mimosa over on my steak.... so...
It may be simple -- no choice except how you want your steak cooked -- but it is delicious. From the warm bread and the tangy vinaigrette salad dressing to the perfectly done French fries and sliced beef with its great sauce all is as you would wish. It's a favorite for us, and we don't even have room for the (included) seconds they bring around!
Everything was great. However the music was too loud.
I was there for brunch, my food came out cold. There was also a table arguing next to us it just made the whole first experience kind of eh. Might try again.
Medium Rare is a great spot and they are very accommodating to your specific needs! The one thing I wish was that our tables were ready upon arrival rather than having to wait outside, but overall an amazing time!
I always love Medium Rare! Brought our friends here for the first time and they loved the concept! We brought two bottles of our own wine (corkage is only $16). Our waitress was super attentive, she was extremely welcoming, and took great care of us. If she wasn’t around, a manager stopped by twice to make sure we had everything (BTW, thanks for the extra butter and sauce). There music playlist is always fun too! We had a great table in the bay window toward the back of the restaurant. We were by a door and I also saw a fancy air purifier at their wait station, which was an added peace of mind during Covid. Restaurant was clean as well as their bathrooms. Consistent and delicious as always, great carrot cake and espresso too!
My husbands Favorite place to eat! Pleased all 4 of us, we will be back!!!
Best Medium rare location I’ve ever been to. The service and food were incredible!
