Always a great place to dine anytime during the week. Great quality meat and fish and well prepared.
I thought the food quality was not as good as in the past. My dish was overcooked. The waiter missed the entree for one person and he ended up getting his dish later. The service was off somewhat..not what I expected. The waiter was pleasant in any event. Thank you,
This is the place to go for good steaks! Cooked to perfection! On a Saturday night it's very noisy and crowded. Good food and good wine!
The wait staff was very attentive. The food was delicious and the entire table left very full and happy!
Its a great to eat. The staff are excellent. Always enjoyable.
Always a perfect go to for steak. Warm and friend Matre d. He always finds a place for you.
What a great hidden gem! Excellent food and service!
Dinner was absolutely delicious. Service was excellent and we could not have asked for a better dinner. Highly recommend!!
Great Food ,Great Service, Worth The price !!! Highly recommended
This is the first time we’ve eaten at Rare. One of the things that drew us there was it’s “Best Steakhouse in NJ” accolade. From the outside, it’s nicely appointed and in a good location with valet parking. Once inside, the bar area is quite nice but the dining area is a bit like a refurbished pizzeria with uncomfortable, lightweight wood chairs. The atmosphere ok but very loud.
Our waiter showed us the different steaks being offered and we all chose the rib eye. The rib eye steak displayed and the ribeye steak presented for consumption were 2 very different steaks. The steaks displayed were truly steakhouse quality but the steaks we were given were much lesser quality, much thinner and over cooked. I had asked for medium rare and got well as did most of the table. I wished I had taken pictures of the display cart versus what I received.
With this said, they were quick to take my steak and provide me a new one that was cooked more to my liking but still, the steak was less than an inch thick and still not medium rare (more medium).
Apart from the steaks, the service was good, the drinks were fantastic, the appetizers were solid, and the sides were good. As a restaurant, Rare is good but as a steakhouse, not so much. The cost does not match the quality.
I was surprised that the servers were not wearing masks and the tables were close to each other. The restaurant was packed. I was personally conflicted with the servers leaning in to hear us because the noise level. The food was very good. I was surprised that when I looked at the menu online on open table it said 10 oz filet mignon was $38 but on the menu at the restaurant it was $50. That was substantial. Maybe it was because it was Saturday night or maybe the prices went up. The meat was amazing, my friend had swordfish and said it was also delicious. It was my husbands second time there and second time had a great meal.
Had a really good meal here. Steaks were all done perfectly and had a great taste. A little costly with all the add ons but still a pretty good value. I had a 16oz prime sirloin that was very tasty and done right. Crawfish mac and cheese appetizer was really good. Party of 6 and everyone was happy with their food. Service was attentive and friendly. Will recommend and return. Only issue is the parking lot is valet only. Some street parking available.
They always get it right!
The food is excellent. Oysters were over the top and steaks are great... service is friendly and excellent. Always a great meal
Beautiful steakhouse with great food low noise and a wonderful overall environment.
Food and service was fantastic. Not my first time there, but definitely a treat. The vodka sauce is very yummy. Chocolate chip cookie skillet delicious also!
Great food and atmosphere
Dinner was delicious! Steaks cooked perfect. Haven’t been in awhile and it did not disappoint!
Everyone was polite…
Went here for our anniversary and was seated immediately. Our table however was very close to another table where I literally bumped elbows with the person next/behind us. I asked to be moved and we were accommodated.
Food was very good. Steak was cooked perfectly. The server de-boned our fish table side which was great.
As always food was delicious and service attentive and impeccable.,
Food was fantastic and service was very good as well. I feel like the prices have gone up dramatically but at least you know you are getting a great meal.
The food is top quality, the service is the best, and the ambiance is understated elegance.
This is the best place to dine! I took my team here and they all loved the experience.
Best steak house in town will recommend to you and visit
Wonderful experience except for the noise level! Couldn’t hear each other at the table!

We had a family birthday celebration last night at rare? First time we were there everything was excellent we had an eight-month-old with us and we were treated with the best service and food!
Great for any occasion. Been coming for years and always a great meal. Steve always makes you feel as though a long time friend is welcoming you. Cheers as the drinks are a great pour.
Delicious food. Highly recommend
Always a great experience as well as splendid service and amazing food.
Sides need to come out with dinner....but very good
My steak was tough
We were at the restaurant for an occasional weekend date. We were seated at a table on the 2nd floor. Service was decent but the waiting service forgot to refill the waters and to ask how our meal was. When the manager passed by asking how our meal was (we were almost finished with our meals) he looked disappointed that we were not satisfied. I ordered a veal chop medium rare but it arrived medium well and VERY dry. No sauce would help it, plus the sauces provided no flavor. My husband ordered a steak which was not very good. The sides and drinks were great. The space seemed newly renovated but with no ambiance. Just bare walls with small curtained windows. Sadly, for the price, food and service. We will not visit again.
My first time at Rare was a good experience. The wait staff was excellent and the steaks were very good. The restaurant was too noisy for my taste . If you are looking for a quiet dining experience this is not your spot.
The steaks were seasoned well thus no need for salt or pepper. They were cooked as ordered and very tender. The whipped potatoes were tasty but a little to rich . The Caesar salad was excellent. Over all a pleasant experience.
The steaks were amazing! Not a big meat eater, but this my have converted me.
