RARE Bar & Grill (Chelsea) Ratings and Reviews
Restored our faith in the American hospitality from service to departure, what makes
good food even better is the service and Rayner (apologise) if not spelt correct is excellent
a few other places we visited could of done with a Rayner on board.
P and G
I reserved a table for 6. An adult family dinner. They sat us in the large group section or large dining area. The Yankees were playing and they were so accommodating. We were able to get the table for 6 right in front of a tv with no problem. Unfortunately we weren't able to get our waitress. However our waiter was just as awesome ! The vibe is nice and the food was fab! The drinks were on point. Thanks RARE!
To kick off our first date night in several years, we started with an appetizer, calamari and sirloin nachos - Amazing! We then had the special of the night burgers and the toppings were fresh and the meat was done perfectly! The side of string beans with almonds were excellent (my husband hates nuts in cooking) and he ate all of his as well. The price was not bad for less than $100 including the tip and beverages, I would call it a win for sure! The wait staff was great, not overbearing, and attentive when needed. I appreciate that, We do not like when staff hover around constantly asking about getting something more and how things were, the questions were asked and answered and the table was cleared as needed, again not hovering around, instead giving us the privacy to enjoy our meal in a clean and comfortable environment.
Went here with a couple of girlfriends for my 23rd birthday. Ambience is beautiful in the dining room as well as up at the rooftop bar. Cocktails were delicious and used quality liquor and fresh ingredients. However, wine list was way too short. Food was absolutely AMAZING. Big portions and fair pricing. Only problem was the waiting staff was very slow and forgot to get us utensils. Nevertheless, would definitely recommend!
We were visiting the city and this was right near our hotel. We both love burgers and Rare offers an upscale twist on the typical burger. My husband had the chef's special and it was so juicy and tasty. I wish I had sampled more than one bite! We also went to Rare's rooftop bar for a quick drink. It had wonderful views and lots of places to sit. The only complaint for me was the music was a little loud.
Food was good and service was very good with the exception that our waiter did not alert us that the option for truffle butter on our burgers would cost $5.00 and that the "special cocktail" - a margarita I could have made at home with simple ingredients - was costing an additioanl $4 ($18 total for that drink).
Besides ill communication on this, the food was fine and service great.
Had dinner at RARE on Saturday night and it was good... Nothing amazing, but definitely very good. The service on the other hand was fantastic! Our waiter was a gem, and everyone was very attentive. It is a great spot to hit with a group, and we'd definitely go again.
Service has gone down hill. Seems to always be a high turnover of management and waitstaff. Everyone was nice but they brought us appetizers with our main dishes and forgot our dips and dressings which we didn't get until part-way through our meal. Overall it was the Rare experience we have come to enjoy over the years.
We had burgers and sandwich with friends there, burgers were OK but the sandwich included ... fried slices of bread ! This with the excess brie made it too greasy and hand cuts fries were way too thin. That being said the venue is very nice and staff efficient and friendly
My friends and I were in the City for a night of fun, and we chose Rare based on the reviews and the location in Chelsea. All three of us had burgers, and they were delicious! The sweet potato fries were yummy too! Our waiter was good- very helpful with the menu. I highly recommend!
A quick visit to The city on a very hot day sent us back to our hotel to cool down. We found RARE and made a last minute reservation with Open Table. We order the chicken lollipops and were pleasantly surprised. Burgers were cooked perfectly as requested. I had the M & M burger (Makers Mark flambé) which was excellent. My family also enjoyed their burgers. The truffle fries were very good. The Honey Maple sauce brought after the fact seamed out of place but it was delicious on everything including sweet potato chips and bacon. We enjoyed our meal.
We had been upstairs at the outdoor bar and thought it would be easy and convenient to come downstairs. No ambiance, kind of shabby apppearnce and very poor service. While the burgers were fine, we couldn't even get the staff to bring ketchup .Had asked for small plates to split the appetizer and no one brought; so I just got them myself. Dessert wasn't worth the carolines ( fried oreos sundae). Wished we had gone elsewhere.
