For you to have the menu you choose was sooo disappointing. We have been to Rate about 8 times and brought a couple with us. They will not be back.b should of stayed with regular menu. So upset after driving an hour for something special. Could of went to McDonald's. That's rating you
Lovely evening topped off by great music in the Bar area after. Loved it!
Highly recommend RARE Chop House if you are in the Southern Illinois area. Great menu & atmosphere for lunch or dinner.
Excellent food, drink and service for an upscale meal out.
Great service. Tasty and well presented food/drink. Nice atmosphere. Well maintained.
Whenever we are in Mt. Vernon we make a point to go to Rare! Never disappoints. Always delicious truly a great restaurant!! Service was great! Good wine list!!
Rare is a restaurant with great food, ambience, & service. Becca was our waitress & absolutely delightful! She was attentive to drink refills & also had a warm smile & sense of humor.
Took FOREVER to get fed.
Excellent choice! Our party drove from Chicago, Atlanta and St Louis to dine together. The restaurant accommodations were fabulous. We asked for a quiet room and they delivered.
We’ll be back next year.
Absolutely fantastic steaks! Love the ambiance of this place, definitely great for eating with friends and for an anniversary. Will be back and highly recommend!
We often drive from Chicago to Memphis, staying the night in Mt. Vernon. RARE has become a habit! Great steaks, nice wine list, delicious sides and wonderful service. Truly a gem!
We love this restaurat. It can be pricey, but well worth it. Everything is made in house and perfect. Even the bar drinks are wonderful.
Enjoyed our evening out celebrating my husband's birthday. Food was amazing. Thanks to the waiter I was able to taste the grits even though I ordered the risotto.
Rachael was our server and is our server most of the time we go. She is outstanding! The food is good, environment is good, service is great!
Really enjoyed the total experience. Atmosphere was great, food was outstanding and our waitress Jada was very polite and helpful.
Love coming here. I am from out of town and still come here often. The staff is very friendly and helpful! Food is also very good! Thanks for a nice NYE!
Service is impeccable. Food is delicious. Our favorite go to restaurant!!!
An incredible fine in a small community. Upon returning from 5 days enjoying the fabulous restaurants of New York City, we were amazed at the great atmosphere, divine food and excellent service. The prices were very favorable and the portions were large enough to split. You will NOT regret your dining experience!!
Rare has been a favorite since it opened and, I don't live in Mt. Vernon
We were given a gift certificate by our children to celebrate our anniverary. The atmosphere was nice, quiet but not where you felt like you couldn't talk. Service was excellent and server very knowledgeable about specials and such...
