I would not recommend this restaurant. The table we sat at had a huge pole in the middle of it by the bar. We sat down at 8 and at 8:40 we still hadn’t seen our waitress. My husband stopped another waiter for a drink and asked for our waitress. She comes at about 8:50 and says, “Do you know what you want?” She didn’t introduce herself or tell us the specials. We place our drink order and appetizer order. While waiting for the appetizers we had to stop a different waiter that passed by for drinks because our waitress didn’t come back. The appetizers come but our waitress doesn’t so we couldn’t place our dinner order. It is now well after 9:15. We give our order to yet a different waiter. It is almost 10 and still no food. The manager has now been spoken to twice by us. He explained the wait is because of a spill that occurred in the kitchen however one of the waiters told us it was because of the wedding taking place upstairs. When we were finished with our dinner the original waitress comes and asks if we wanted dessert or drinks! Unbelievable considering that was the second time we had seen her all night!!! This is not the first time service has been terrible there! Not worth our money or time.

Some portions, like the crab legs appetizer, was tiny and not worth the amount charged. Expensive place. Good people watching. Good music on Thursday night.

8:30 reservation, seated 9:10 not a good start for a highly anticipated dinner. The reception staff seem to greet replete customers opposed to an Open Table reservation as we were first timers Service was confusing! Started with one waiter gave drink order, 15 mins later another waiter wanted to tell us about specials we wanted to know where’s our drinks. Another 10 mins we had them.

By the time we ate our main course it was after 10.

Unfortunately that was not all of our issues as the food was just mediocre.
They did comp those drinks and were very apologetic, I’d Prefer on time orders, reception staff happy that we chose their restaurant to post any other in the area and food which matches a very expensive menu

My family took me here for my birthday. IT WAS HORRIBLE. The manager walking around in a light pink flared arm dress on Sept. 29, 2018 went around to check on every table except my table. We were the only table that had colored people. Our bill was nearly 600$ and she didn't bother to ask how we were. SO RUDE. My 13 year old brother also ordered a lemonade and they gave him an alcoholic drink!!!!! When the server realized it wasn't lemonade he came back for it and gave it to the man sitting behind us!!! what if my brother took a sip from it!!! ARE YOU INSANE. Also, the servers were so confused they gave us all the wrong plates and the entire restaurant smelled so bad (probably what they spray the plants with). OVERALL, terrible experience for 600$ with rude inconsiderate managers and a very confused staff.

We were seated in a booth so noise level perfect. Service a little slow but it was crowded and Fri nite. The chopped salad was salty. I love this salad usually. I think it was the olives. Bronzino was hand filleted but had a few bones, still delicious. Shared steak at table......perfectly prepared. Artichokes, mushrooms and baked potato were great sides.

We went to RARE650 for their Tuesday night specials. They are a particularly good value when compared to the regular menu. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our meals especially the muscles appetizer with chorizo, the marinated skirt steak, the King Crab Legs, and the entree crab cake. The desserts were just ok but we were pretty satisfied by that time. My one issue is with their wine prices. Compared to other restaurants and similar lists I think they are very high. For example we ended up spending $225 for a Shafer Relentless Syrah. We can buy that wine directly from the winery for $95. There are many others on the list that I noticed I believe are over priced as well. I just don't think it is necessary to do that. This is an expensive place to begin with. Would like to see them do a better job with wine pricing.

We had a very disappointing experience. The filet was ordered rare and came out medium. It was sent back and was overcooked again. The manager came over and instead of appologizing said that it was rare in the kitchen and the hot serving dish caused further cooking! Seriously, this is a high end steak house and they can’t cook a steak correctly! They got the temperature right the 3rd try but the filet was tasteless.
Lobsters were ok but smaller than ordered. Deserts not worth the calories except for the donuts which were delicious.

Sushi we ordered was not good at all., Tuna was very fishy tasting. The steak was fine. Our waitress was unfriendly and was clearly trying to upsell the menu which was tacky.

Not worth the expensive bill. Would go back for drinks at the Bar, not dinner.
