The staff were superb all trying to be of assistance. The only thing which out-did the staff was the food.
My best friend had the best birthday brunch ever! Thank you to the staff for making it special
The team at Medium Rare was extremely accommodating and worked to make our evening very special. Shout out to Enrique our waiter.
Birthday dinner. Can always count on Medium Rare for great quality food.
For what you pay you get a lot. A great bottomless brunch! However, despite having a reservation it took 30 minutes + to get seated and we were definitely forgotten about. Probably could’ve used another host for the busy weekend shift
The food was very good. The restaurant was very busy and there wasn’t enough staff. The staff that was there was nice but they were not very good. I saw a couple walk out. A woman who was working as a hostess/bartender was wonderful. She really knew what she was doing but the rest of the staff were not very good.
The server had her mask below her nose. That’s not a great thing these days.
Great time eating with my family. Good service overall.
The value for their brunch is incredible, the waiters were friendly and engaging
We always enjoy ate experience when we visit Medium Rate. Food is always great and service is top notch.
Went here for brunch and tried the bottomless option with steak frites. Even though the steak was cooked past medium, the sauce and flavor were still there. Bread with homemade butter was really good. Service was good.
Would have expected better quality since they are mainly focused in one plate (entrecote and french fries). It feels like they are rushing to serve you and rotate the table. Would have liked a more pleasant ambiance.
But in comparison to other meat/steak places in DC its affordable and fun
The table service we very good. Our main issue is with the front of house and the restaurant policy. They don't let anyone sit down until a whole party has arrived despite our having a booking and arriving on time. Two of our guests were 5mins late. Anyway this means you have to stand around while there are empty tables everywhere. Pretty dumb since we would have bought a drink while we were waiting if it weren't for this policy and for the rude manner that the front of house dealt with our request (and the same from pretty much everyone else that arrived) to be seated since we had arrived. Seems to have the customer and the service idea the wrong way around. Will go somewhere else another time if the same person is there. Shame because the food is great!
Great food and service, we love that Medium Rare has helped so many people during the pandemic. Thank you!
Medium Rare has become high quality fast food.
As always a great meal and great service. One of our favorite places in DC
The staff, the atmosphere and the food were perfect.
We had a great time. Simple menu but that was the point, wasn’t it? The service was seamless and we were shocked when our server brought around another helping of steak and frites. Definitely a place to remember.
We dine here often and always have a great meal
Went for brunch and it was good just not great. It’s clearly a very popular place.
It’s not great sitting on a sewer grate, or feeling like you’re being rushed through dinner. The food was very good though, and so was the service.
The brunch deal is great and the food was amazing. Our server was awesome and so was the rest of the staff. Will absolutely be back all the time.
Mostly fine: pretty loud though for outside seating, decided to blast music halfway through our meal and I could not hear my partner. 25 dollar fixed price for steak of that quality is a bit much
Never not amazing. Smelled pretty bad outside because of trash on street but they can’t help that.
Way too noisy. Mediocre food at best; inattentive service.
We went for brunch, had a nice time and enjoyed our experience. There are plenty of great brunch places in DC and Medium Rare is a decent choice.
Excellent food. Good service. Nice outdoor dining.
Not sure if my server was new, but was not very attentive. Forgot to bring menus. Forgot our bread.
Forgot our eggs.
Our steak was cooked well done when asked for medium well.
I didn’t know it was a pre-set menu. It is insane to be that it was so limited and there were no options. I did not have the kind of meal I was hoping for. Not only did I not want to order the only food on the menu, I left still feeling hungry. It wasn’t nearly enough food. The whole set up with the pre-set menu and the writing on the table paper was all just very odd. I won’t be back.
Great environment and staff, The service was fast and quick. Good place for a brunch.
Steak and frites and the bloody Mary’s were amazing.
Medium Rare is my go-to in Cleveland Park. Amazing vibe, great food - every detail is well thought out. Salad dressing is perfect, bread just the right crust to soft, steak sauce delicious. Highly recommend!
Medium Rare never disappoints! So much fun, great food, and great service!
Really amazing food.
The restaurant is just way too loud. It’s honestly crazy how loud it was. We couldn’t hear the waitstaff.
Really enjoyed myself, food was great, energy was amazing.
Love this neighborhood gem. Always reliably good steak, frites, salad and artisan break for a great price. Spacious outdoor seating (covered and uncovered) and great playlist of music playing.
Great service - steak was fabulous- we will be back
Honestly, just not my place. I love steak frites, but the quality of beef was weak at best.
The food, as always, was delicious - from the bread to the salad to the main course and to dessert. Service was excellent! Always fun and delicious to go to Medium Rare!
New server and no one listen to the food Allergy. Very disappointed and the fries were over cooked. It seems that the quality of food is not were it used to be. We used to love Medium Rare.
