Great meal! Highly recommend.
Besides being the best steak frites in the area, Miki, our server, was beyond excellent. We had a large party - 11 - and she took care of us instantly. Everything was done in a classic French cafe style with fresh crusty bread at the table when we arrived and wine at the ready. Salad, dressed just right, followed once Miki had our steak preferences jotted down. The steak frites were spot on. And second helpings arrived for our hungrier guests. To top the dinner off, desserts - chocolate cake, hot fudge sundae, and carrot cake - were enjoyed and quickly devoured.
It is a simple menu, but it is really good to have a great steak and frites. Good service and nice ambiance.
great value for the price...and the bottomless mimosas :) were awesome!!!
Saw a RAT! And fries were cold.
Our favorite restaurant in DC. We always come here when we are visiting.
Delicious. Second serving was a nice surprise. Definitely recommend
The meal was simple but amazing! I especially enjoyed the diversity of its patrons enjoying a meal.
They deliver on their promise. If you want steak and fries, great. Anything else, pick someplace else. Steak is tender and was perfectly prepared. Fries were crispy. Sauce is outstanding. Had carrot cake for desert - very tasty although expensive compared to the rest of the meal. But steak dinner for 2, with a drink and desert for under $100 including tip? Great value and delicious food.
My children love this restaurant-they’re both home from college.
Just awesome. That steak sauce was amazing. Highly recommend!
Michelle was the best, she is so sweet we had a great time food was great, our table was really nice :) definitely coming back soon. Definitely telling everyone about it. Wanna try the brunch too I heard good things
Food was 3/10. Not the best
Price for brunch is great. Good food. However, the noise level is awful. The acoustics don’t allow for any sound dampening.
The food and service were both excellent.
The food was good, the staff overall was very good. It started out very well but after we were overlooked a couple of times for our meal, that was very off putting. It’s not like we ordered anything differently other perhaps temperature requirements for the meal. Watching others being served that arrived after us did make me question things a bit. It will not keep us from coming back however and overall we had a good experience
Great experience at Medium Rare! We celebrated my son's acceptance into the Culinary Institute of America.
Appreciate the outdoor dining space w heater
Our first experience with Medium Rare. Decided to sit outside since it seemed very loud inside. The service was prompt and friendly. Loved everything from the bread to the steak. Appreciated that they came around to offer seconds on the meat and fries. We will be back.
What a great experience at Medium Rare! The service was great as was the food.
Great meal. Was interested if in trying the restaurant when I read about their meal sharing at Thanksgiving. It did not disappoint.
It was me and girlfriend and my mom first time there and we loved it the service was excellent and me and my Girlfriend plan on coming back for a dinner date together!
A very pleasant experience in a moderately priced restaurant. Be sure you understand the extremely limited menu before you go. You will then enjoy the visit.
Food was delicious. The concept of having one set menu without other options is still so puzzling to me but hey, it works!
The start of the meal was great. The waiter asked what we wanted to drink and we received our bottle of wine promptly. That’s when the service went down. We were asked how we wanted our steaks and then that was the last we saw the waitress. The food came which was ok, my steak came rare which was great. I was also disappointed because it was my girlfriend birthday and I specifically wanted them to bring some sort of cake. After waiting forever I decided to go to the host and ask for the check which I still left a 25% tip because I work the industry and know we depend on them.
We were forgotten about. Had to ask for our dinner and waited very long time for 2nd portions that are normally routine
Great food, very busy and noisy.
Service not as it usually is due to business.
Great steak and good value
We were very pleased with our meal and the service. If you like Steak, this is the place!
The service was awful. My server would go to the other tables in her area and skip mines. Everyone else was getting great service. My server only came to check on the table 2 to 3 times over a 2.5 hour period. Didn’t ask if we needed anything, left used cups on the table. The thing that really got me was she would go to the table next to me, put her head up as she walk past like I’m in there and go to the next table. Very disappointing.
The food was good, but the service turned me off.
Perfect space for brunch after the holidays to catch up with friends and family. Never disappointed when we go to Medium Rare in Bethesda.
It was very frustrating because I called to makes sure we were set for 12 people for a bday party and he had no idea what I was talking about and told me it goes to a call
Center! Well the woman I spoke to from
The number to bethesda medium rare said no problem. We got there and it was total confusion. I would be very nervous to plan something like that again. I called many times and no calls back to then be told it goes to a call
Center. Should be much better customer service then that. The. We had to wait with 11 people for a table.
Once we sat down the waitress and busboy were wonderful and it all worked out because the boys were 19 and 20 yes old and capable of waiting but not ok to expect a table to no apologies and be told I spoke to a call center.
Fantastic staff, accommodated all our needs with a smile on a very busy night with full reservations. Food was great.
This is one of our college boys’ favorite places so we wanted to kick off Thanksgiving with a fam meal there. We were late and the maitre d could not have been more gracious despite that. Our waiter was also very attentive. And food was delicious as always. Thanks for another great evening.
Food was good, respec for price. Bread was crusty. Salad had a nice dressing. Portbello entree was nicely flavored. Steak, too.
There are MUCH better steaks and better values out there
Miki was AMAZING! We have been coming here for several years now and we had the pleasure to experience her customer service on more than one occasion. The food is consistently good and plentiful.
Steak and steak sauce were both too salty. Server was inattentive.
Medium Rare is Large in our books. If you love steak this is the place for you! Great ambiance, friendly staff and good service.
Brunch was good. French toast was crispy outside and soft inside..delicious! Steak and eggs was good..nothing special.
