Valentines Day dinner with fiancé, he loves steak and pommes frites and that is their specialty. Prix fixe dinner and a glass of wine was very reasonably priced, until the value got even better when the severs brought second and third helpings!! We looked at each other like, Is this for real? Super convenient to metro. We will definitely be coming back!
Music was blaring and ruined the ambience.
Excellent service! Immediately had our drink orders taken and appetizer and bread brought out immediately. Food was very filling. We did the $25 deal with unlimited mimosas, a starter, and entree. Would have enjoyed more steak, but can't complain with the $25 deal. Would have been too good to be true. Such great serve. Waiter was super, super, friendly! Steak cooked to perfection. Drinks always filled. Enjoyed the special sauce.
This is an easy place to go! As long as you like a bistro style steak, you’re all set to stop worrying about whether you ordered the right thing or not - and just concentrate on a good conversation with your dining companion(s). Bliss!
Unlimited drinks and great service. Awesome sunday brunch deal.
This was an absolutely lovely experience. The food was plenty, and delicious, and I had some of the best steak and apple pie I have ever had!
This place is great! It's unique approach to its menu allows for quick service and gourmet food at surprisingly reasonable prices. It felt like I was doing restaurant week and getting a steal! It's a place that values the customer at every turn, with everything from two servings at the same price to a massive complimentary birthday ice cream thing. Highly recommend.
Perfect spot for brunch if you want to get bougie on a budget. Our mimosa carafe was literally always full!
The server was attentive and very helpful. Entries were very good, wine was what we were looking for. Desert was excellent (carrot cake and key lime pie). Overall good experience.
Very, very disappointing. It's hard to imagine how a place can go wrong serving exactly one thing: salad, bread, steak, fries. Yet all but the salad were bad--and the service, while eager to please, was poor, too.
The bread was so crusty I feared for my teeth, the fries were so crispy I could have been eating twigs, and the steak was oversalted and meh.
I asked for the sauce (they have one kind) on the side, but my meal arrived with the steak and frites drenched in sauce. The server felt bad and brought me another plate with sauce on the side (they serve seconds of steak and frites on request, so this wasn't as big a deal as it sounds). I tried the sauce, and was glad I'd gotten it on the side--it added nothing, and was also too salty.
Great concept for a restaurant--but a poor execution!
The Conn. Avenue location of Medium Rare did not disappoint our group of four hungry meat-eaters. The price fixed menu of steak, fries, and salad, was just what this budget-minded group needed for a casual Sunday night Birthday and we were totally satisfied. Highly recommended.
Food was good. Good steak. You wanted the seconds. Could be slightly more tender but still flavorful. Fries were nice and crisp and hot. Nice. Perfect sized portions with the built-in seconds. Good model.
The food was pretty yummy and the carrot cake was fantastic. Only think that leaves you wanting more is having a couple extra options in terms of food. Cool experience though.
My boyfriend and I went to Medium Rare to celebrate his birthday, and we had a great time. The service was, the staff was extremely friendly, and the food was amazing. Also, it was great value! We definitely plan to come back soon.
We had a great brunch on Sunday. Great steak as usual. Enjoyed the bottomless mimosas. Loved the salad and bread. It was very busy and noisy but we enjoyed it just the same. The only complaint is that the poached eggs were under cooked and the whites were runny. Didn't need the carrot cake but it was well worth it. Gum was a fun touch as you can see from the picture.
We were searching for a bottomless brunch spot. Medium Rare has a price you can't beat. Their menu is very limited. My husband and I ordered the steak and eggs Benedict. It was covered in gravy. It was tasty, but way too rich for me. I would visit again, but I would definitely specify that I want my steak plain. It was a very heavy meal!
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here. My best friend and I were celebrating our birthdays and can't wait to come back.
My younger son told me it was a great place. He and his Georgetown Prep friends have been there on many occasions. My older son and his friends took me to medium rare for my birthday. I had a great time! Thanks
After a disastrous visit a couple weeks ago with family, pleasantly surprised to have the service we have been used to. Great service - enjoyable evening.
Everything was perfect. Favorite restaurant to visit when in town. Loved the hot cider bourbon!
