Wonderful, cozy, romantic restaurant that is a definite DC fave! The prix fixe menu is a great bargain and is always delicious, plus I love their wine offerings. A little slice of French country fare in our area. You won't be disappointed!

I have been to Medium Rare numerous times - it was great when they first opened - then it became popular and then the quality went down hill!

First time I have been here in about a year - got seated outside which was a mistake - traffic noise was terrible - and they have tables sitting over subway grates!

The food was mediocre on this visit. Not sure if it is because they have a skeleton crew? Not busy enough? Beer and wine options were very limited!

Step it up guys!

I love medium rare! We’ve come here many years for brunch and dinner. This was my first time dining out in DC since the onset of the pandemic, and we enjoyed our outdoor brunch experience. We felt safe and comfortable and enjoyed delicious steak & eggs.

The steak and fries concept is a bit weird.
The steak came out with a awful tasting brown gravy had to request steak without the gravy.

I was in DC for the weekend and decided to do a DC infamous bottomless brunch. The steak and eggs and bottomless mimosas at Medium Rare were delicious! And everything was under $30!! What a great deal!

Okay, this team at Medium Rare Cleveland Park went ABOVE and beyond this week when I was dining there. I am a generally friendly person and the entire staff from the hostess, to the manager to our server (and others) met my friendliness and raised the bar. We honestly had an amazing dinner. Food is always great but the people were exceptional. Thank you Medium Rare.

Medium Rare has been a family tradition for over 10 years. Now that my kids are grown, they take their own families there. The food is simple and great, the ambiance is terrific, and we love it.
