Charred oysters excellent, filet mignon delicious, charred on outside and medium as ordered inside.
We had ordered 2 baked potatoes and think wait staff should have said 1 is big enough for 2. Kurt, a maitre d’ brought over side of spinach which was good and it was nice talking to him.
No warm bread, coffee press was not left, not asked if we wanted anything else. We felt they wanted to get us in and out because we had the special Tuesday dinner. They brought our check before we asked for it.
Sign outside advertising steak special for $59 was really surprising for this restaurant.
Wait staff were apathetic and snotty.
Come to think of it, valets were not very friendly or welcoming either, maybe because we don’t have a fancy car.
Great food! Lots of vegetarian options! Delicious drinks!
Extremely dissatisfied with this steakhouse. First we told them this was our 20 year wedding anniversary. We were very nicely dressed they tried to seat us near the kitchen. We asked to move and they put us near a curtained area with a lot of very loud children who were having a party. We were moved again to a better location. Our waitstaff has zero personality. There were two. Neither one cracked a smile all evening as for our meal $18 for four shrimp cocktail. Come on. I’ve been to many five star restaurants but that was ridiculous. The porterhouse for two at $108 had zero flavor. They do not offer sauces like at many other places to accompany steak. Overall it’s very pretty but that’s where I️t ends. Will not go back. I’ve had better experience from three star steakhouses.
food was excellent, we all had steak and lobster special, not a particularly good value price-wise as it turned out but food was very good.
We went to RARE650 for my daughters birthday. The service and food were excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. I had never been there before that day but I have now recommended it to many people. It was almost an hour trip each way for us but I would gladly go back in a heartbeat.
Although we frequent many high end Steakhouse’s we haven’t been here in a couple of years.
I was extremely please with the quality of the food.
I do however have a couple of issues.
One was with the Valet parking system. Our reservation was at 8:00, and we arrived at 7:45. Unfortunately the line for the Valet was out of the parking lot and down Jericho Tpke. We wound up getting into the restaurant at 8:10. It was snowing, so that might have contributed to the backup.
My second issue was with the service later in the meal.
Upon sitting we were greeted promptly and ordered drinks from the bar.
After a while we ordered apps, and a bottle of wine.
That’s when the service started to become a little lax.
My wife ordered a different salad dressing the listed with the salad. When the salad arrived the listed dressing was included. No problem, she would just tell someone. Well no server came by for a while. Finally we were able to notify the waiter and he brought the right salad dressing out.
We ordered our main courses, and right before they came to the table we ordered another bottle of wine.
Well, the wine didn’t get to the table till we were just about finished with our main courses. Not used to that at a quality steakhouse.
With the excellent quality of the food, the issues with the valet and some of the service would not stop me from dining here again.
Not as good as usual
Menu has changed
Seating promptly at reservation time
The food was pretty good. We both had seafood dishes and the fish was excellent. Our only issue was how many times we were interrupted while we were eating our meals. Once or twice asking how everything was would suffice but after the fifth time we were a little annoyed. Not to far from our home so we would possibly give it another chance and try the steak which smelled really good. But for my money when it comes to steak nothing compares to Bryant & Coopers.
We sat in the glass room it was spectacular.
It was snowing.
Everything was delicious, service was great.
This visit was a bit disappointing.
Awesome awesome awesome
Excellent meal and service is impeccable :) I would definitely recommend this restaurant :)
the restaurant had a few empty tables we still have to wait at least 20 min for our table. the hostess was rude and unpleasant.
Went there on Valentine’s Day and had a great time as usual. Ray & Steve served us well along with comp drinks & dessert. The food took a little while but was well worth the wait. We had a 40oz tomahawk wagyu steak, cooked to perfection. My only concern was the noise level, particularly the party next to us who was extremely loud to the point where I could not hear my girlfriend and we eventually had to move tables. Other than that it was another great night at Rare 650.
Very good restaurant with good servers and the food was extremely good left me speechless on how good the food was
Valentine’s dinner waited almost half hour to get seated despite reservations. Food was delicious and came quickly and waiters were responsive. Overall good experience.
Normally the food is excellent. One of our favorite dishes is the skirt steak which we ordered. However, the steak was not even close to good or of the portion size it has been in the past.
