Medium Rare - Arlington
Great Service, Great Price, Great Vibe. Amazing time!
The service and food were delicious. We will definitely come again.
Excellent meal with attentive (but not overly attentive) wait staff. Thank you.
The service was amazing. Everyone that came to the table had a smile and met our needs. The carrot cake was delicious!!
Best place in Arlington/ Ballston area, just go you won’t be disappointed
The outdoor tables were well spaced and since the menu is fixed there's no need to handle one. Our drink server was excellent but our food server seemed a little too busy to give us 5 star service. The steak with the sauce is the best!
Compared to pre pandemic the portions were smaller. We were put by the bar. Just raise the price if you need to or offer an option
We enjoyed having our meal at Medium Rare for our anniversary.
We asked for the menu couple of times, we didn’t wanna eat brunch, they served sirloin or New York strip sliced , people were drunk left and right swearing it kind of felt like a Friday night bar. Not a good place to enjoy food.
Had a great night (10.3.2020) at Medium Rare. The patio is spacious, heaters are deployed throughout to keep you warm, and people are seated reasonably far apart given COVID. Everyone was masked up and gloved up, and the staff were clearly well-trained.
We love Medium Rare. Always great service and good food.
Never a dull moment when visiting Medium Rare. Absolutely love the environment, staff, & food!
Our server was incredible and the food was amazing!
We have been there many times and have never been disappointed...
Great concept, very unique! The most delicious Steak Frites, generous portions, nice dining room with good service, and incredible value!
The waitress Nicole was really helpful and nice!!!
I wish I didn’t have to write a negative review because the staff was really nice... however, $120 for what was basically French fries and chewy steak was disappointing. For a place that has a single main dish (steak), we expected better quality.
We sat outside and had a great meal. Server was terrific, food was great. Lots of protocols and hand sanitizer. Our server wore gloves and mask. Great evening!
ONE Thing wasn't good the salad wasn't fresh. Although, other dishes were good.
Cofounder & Manager were wonderful to deal with & helped arrange a special surprise from a distance. Manager Chris is a great guy & very accommodating. Everyone was pleasant fun & professional. Outstanding place!
Great value for money. Nice venue, courteous staff. A fixed menu with salad, an OK steak with a worthy special sauce, very tasty fries, and optional mushroom, probably my favorite dish.
Chocolate cake is a massive piece of delight.
Very good social distancing practices, all staff wearing masks and gloves, no menu. Could have contactless payment options.
Our waitress was amazing - the service all around was very friendly which made this birthday celebration very special!
Warm, welcoming service. Ample sheltered outdoor dining.
Second time in two weeks. Delicious food. Love the simplicity of the dining experience... and, of course, the seconds. Terrific service too.
Pricing was unclear, even with the benefit of the doubt I think we were significantly overcharged when we did the math after the fact. Tip may have been included in the single item "BASE" price that was listed (we were not splitting the check). It felt like we paid 20-25% too much, I would have been worth it at the original price but at an average of $50/pp it was not.
The meal and service were great!!
Great meal, set menu but steak never disappoints.
I had brunch at Medium Rare to celebrate my partner’s birthday and had such a great experience. We sat outside which was a completely open patio that had a tent for inclement weather. We split a bottle of champagne with mimosas and the food was excellent. This is definitely one of the best brunch deals in town for a high quality dining experience for a special occasion!
Medium Rare never disappoints! Good COVID protocols with distancing and seating outside under a large tent. Quality of food was great.
All was great!
The food was delicious. No complaints and the Bloody Mary was marvelous
Outdoor dining was nice. Maybe an additional fan for a gentle breeze as it was humid. Mentioned birthday occasion but did not receive any other recognition from restaurant.
Menu could be extended a bit more for brunch to include baked items?
They have plenty of space for outdoor seating and do a good job of taking all the necessary COVID precautions. Even though it was hot outside (over 90 at 7pm), it actually felt very pleasant outside because they're in a shady area and have covered the outdoor seating area.
Food was excellent and waiter delivered a special treat for our birthday guest!
My Medium Rare steak was overcooked.....twice.
Everyone at our table ordered their steaks Medium rare with the exception of my son who ordered his rare, and the steaks were all inconsistently cooked. My husband had a few medium rare pieces, while my steak and my daughter's stead were almost well done.
We were so disappointed because we really wanted to like the place we didn't even consider having dessert.
Celebrated a friend’s bday for brunch. The service was excellent! Even the Manager stopped over and greeted us. Superb service and the BDay girl had a great time! The only two issues I have is that I emailed ahead and confirmed upon arrival that I have a Gluten allergy, however, I received my Benedict dish on top of a slice of bread. I had to send it back unfortunately. I then ordered the steak and eggs (steak medium rare) but the steak came slightly overcooked, but still tender so I ate it. Because I had to reorder after everyone else received their dish, I didn’t feel like sending it back. Overall good experience.
Server was great. Host was not welcoming at all. That is a shame because the host is your first contact.
The food was delicious, especially the bread!
I had the steak frites and fruit salad. The fruit salad wasn’t very good but the rest of the food was great!
