Everything was perfect including my Cosmo,the salad, fries, mushrooms and sauce with it, the bread and butter, and the steak and secret sauce. I wish the steak had been more tender but it was good enough that I will return often.
As usual, a great meal!
With one main dish as the menu, mediocre wine and limited bar options I will not return.
Always a great place to go! Service is friendly, food is consistently good.
Medium Rare is a great place for steak and frites. It is basically their signature menu item and it is well worth the trip. Service was excellent as well as the food.
We did not expect so many children dining.
This is a great place!
Double charged my card and my partners.
We were hoping to find our new go to steak house following the closure of Ray's the Steak. Not to be. Medium Rare was good for what it is and quite affordable. Unfortunately, with only 1 steak and no vegetable options, it will not be getting me back as a regular.
Great food and good price. My husband and I always enjoy coming here.
The food at Medium Rare never disappoints! We’ve been to this location twice and the service is always fantastic. Save a bit of room for the carrot cake!
Bad food. Oblivious service. Manger with nasty attitude.
There was nothing about this dining experience that I liked.
Food, service, venue, wine, and value for the fixed menu made for a special evening. Do a first date there. Well worth it!
The food was delicious and we enjoyed trying the brunch since we previously had been there for dinner. Delicious yogurt parfaits.
cheap food for cheap price. has it’s place but don’t expect great food
GREAT value and good food. Loved this place! We had a great server. The food was good and a great value for the price. I loved the simplicity of the menu and the quality of what we got for the price. We will absolutely be back!
A neat fixed menu concept that will have us coming back! We loved having seconds on the steak and frites.
Fixed menu and pricing was interesting and a good value. Food and service was excellent! I'll go there again.
We really enjoyed the food, value and setting. The only negative was that it was way too loud and hard to hear people across the table.
All was good. Really enjoyed our dinner. Delicious.
Just a great stop along the way. First time in and we will definitely be back. Steak was good, portobello good...great server! Very nice!
I’m sure what happened was an unfortunate accident but a fly crawled out of my salad while I was eating it. The salad was quickly replaced with another one but by then I had lost ny appetite for the dalad.
I thought the featured part of the meal, sliced steak was a little tough to chew. Seconds were served promptly and the waiter handled the requested special occasion very nicely. If they worked out the salad issues and the cut of meat I would have rated it a 4.
Fun and unique idea, good for a date, definitely know the deal before dining!
The food was excellent and the secret sauce certainly added to the steak, without overwhelming it. The apple pie was delicious.
I would like to see a better salad! Fresh and crisp is important!
I stopped by on a Sunday brunch... loved the layout and vibes when you first walk in. It wasn't busy due to football games being on so it was the perfect time to go. My server Danielle K. was beyond amazing. I was able to try both Medium Rare's Famous Benedict and Steak Frites but preferred the Steak Frites with eggs. The mimosas were a great touch because she definitely kept them coming and that's what I like. This won't be my last time coming back because the service here is on 10... all for around $30!
SLOW DOWN! I appreciate good service as much as the next person but every time I go to MR I feel like I am
Rushed - I don’t get a chance to enjoy my cocktail before
My salad is thrown down in front of me and then here comes the steak min later. Maybe it’s because the menu is so limited or maybe it’s because I dine at 8:30pm and the server is ready to go home (close at 10) but I am tired of being hurried , so will probably be my last time there, because I have a lot of other choices in the area that will back off and let me enjoy a few min of down time and time to talk with my date.....
I've been to Medium Rare several times and I'm never disappointed. I will continue to go for a tasty steak and fries meal whenever I'm craving it!
I went for my birthday with a group of 14. It was my third time visiting this location. Great food, service and atmosphere! They accommodated one of my guests' vegetarian diet/dietary restrictions as well. The bartender also made fantastic drinks.
Terrific foods. Terrific service. Terrific price.
The steak and grits were awesome and the surprise seconds really made it complete. Excellent bread and grilled mushroom and an absurdly delicious key lime pie top it off. We’ll be back!
Medium Rare was awesome! We celebrated my husband's birthday there and had a great time. The staff were excellent and friendly and the food was DELICIOUS! They know what they are doing. Medium Rare will definitely be one of our regular places from now on. I can't believe I didn't try it sooner!
All good except for Belgian Delirium Tremens draft beer @ $12.00 in a 10 oz. tulip glass that was half beer and half foam. Drink something else and buy DT at your local beverage store.
If all you want is good grilled steak and fries and a very reasonable price - this is the place!!
First time at Medium Rare: steak over cooked and served cold
Delicious! Only have one set menu so if you don't like steak and french fries (not sure who wouldn't!), this isn't for you. Will definitely be returning.
Food was very good and portions were generous. Very relaxing atmosphere.
What I love about Medium Rare is you know exactly what you're getting. The simple menu keeps decisions easy and who can complain when the food is done right? Great place for us meat and potato people.
Great value. Good food. The salad, steak, fries and wine are excellent.
