consistently exceptional, very professional - kudos to Eduardo
Too crowded...Too loud....ordered medium rare steak which came out almost well done..a very stressful dinner overall
The waitstaff was terrible. They delivered coffee but we had to ask twice for sugar; they delivered dessert but we had to ask twice for spoons. They did not make us feel welcome or comfortable, instead had an attitude almost mocking us when we asked them to turn down the air that was blowing directly on us. The filet was not very good (everything else was). Usually love the food and service at Rare but was incredibly disappointed this time. A shame to spend so much money on a meal and feel this way.
Sushi or steak fills the menu, pricey, party of three enjoyed our meal - Thursday night after 8 is party time
I have been to all steak houses even your other places at RARE650 my steak had to be sent back way over cooked and the second steak was way undercooked the waiter did nothing to help was very very disappointed it was a special occasion which was ruined,
I've only been to Rare on Thursday night single scene. I've often wondered how the food was, cannot believe I waited so long. The food was outstanding, the Porterhouse steak for 2, melted in your mouth, cooked to perfection, great wine selections, the service was attentive and the atomosphere was cozy and romantic, overall, great steakhouse.
Food was great and assistant waiter wa great but main waiter had a major attitude. Definitely put a negative vibe on the experience. Would change tables if I saw he was my waiter again.
We went for the Tuesday Special menu and were pleasantly surprised how nice everything was. Our server Michele was excellent , a very warm and friendly person with excellent suggestions about the menu. The portions were large and very tasty and we felt like it was a great value for the money. We will definitely return to this restaurant.
As always we find dining at Rare650 to be a lovely experience. The service is excellent and everyone is very attentive. I love celebrating our special occasions in the Garden room.
It has been better. Bad service. Cold food. Very disappointed. I’m a regular there and never had a bed meal or service . Guess this was an exception.
You can't go wrong with a great meal and fantastic service at Rare 650.
The food is good, as are the drinks, and it's a lot of fun. However, prepare to spend A LOT of money here!
Food and service was great! Very pricey but it was my Bday! Great for special occasions or a splurge on dinner. It was worth it.
The food was outstanding with a great Service. The wait staff was wonderful, very attentive and knowable of the menu items and the very comprehensive wine list.
Overall an outstanding experience.
I have celiac disease and need to adhere to a gluten free diet. The menu stated that their crab cakes were gluten free, which I was also told the last time I dined here. I ordered them, but then asked the waiter, just to make sure, if they were gluten free. He checked with the kitchen and cane back and told me they were NOT gluten free, and in fact, had crackers in them. If I had simply ordered according to the menu, I could have become very sick! I asked to speak to the manager, to tell him about this mistake on the menu. He was apologetic, but did nothing to compensate me, which I felt was poor business. The waiters also, didn’t take my gluten free needs seriously, until I made a stink about it. This is not a dietary choice, but a Medical necessity! This should never be taken lightly. I am furious at how I was treated tonight at this restaurant!!!
Very good food, very good service, very good ambiance, very expensive.
Kurt is the best Mgr on LI
We had a mixed age group, and everyone enjoyer their meal. It was awesome!
Always a great choice for family dinner. Great food and ambience, with very good service.
Great food and great steaks. Appetizers are a meal in itself.
My husband and I were celebrating my birthday. Rare650 is outstanding for the quality of their food and service. It didn't disappoint. Even my wine, Chadinay, was great. The portions are big so I took home a goody bag which I almost forgot but our waiter ran out the restaurant and gave it to us while we were waiting for the valet to get our car. I was impressed.
Went for my husband’s birthday. He had to send his $65 steak back twice, ended up settling for a filet. The first time it was overdone and second time the meat was grizzly. Very disappointed because I finished my meal before he started his. Was really looking forward to a nice birthday celebration.
Service was good. Restaurant decor was nice.
Need to fix valet issue. To long wait to park. Loved my steak and sushi
Impossibly loud, chaotic service and much more expensive than we anticipated or is warranted for a local place on Jericho Tpke. Our first and last visit
The noise level was awful. We were at a small table for four and we couldn't hear each other talk. The porterhouse steaks were grizzly. The service was awful. I would call it organized chaos.
Rare 650 never disappoints!
we too busy waiter forget to bring the wine on time
FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND THE SERVICE WAS GREAT. EVERYTHING ABOUT THE RESTAURANT WAS GREATER THEN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. WOULD PUT IT ON ONE OF MY PLACES TO RETURN.
We went to Rare 650 for a special anniversary dinner. We were seated in the back, near the bar, but it was early in the evening, so that was fine (don't sit there later on - it will get crowded and loud). Our servers were very good and attentive. They made excellent recommendations. We had an appetizer special (soft shelled crab) which was very good. My husband had a Kansas City strip steak with truffle butter that he said was delicious. I had the shrimp over vegetables, which was also good. Several people (not sure who they were, they didn't identify themselves) stopped by the table to see how our meal was. This is a pricey price - but it is very nice for a special occasion. There was Valet parking only.
Very accommodating. Delicious meal. They even packed up dessert for us. It was our anniversary.
Always a pleasure to dine there!! Food and wine and servers are first rate!!!
So we went for our anniversary. I got a NY Strip, cooked medium. It came out black & blue. So I sent it back, and two minutes later it came out, and it was still rare. Between rare and black & blue. So I sent it back again, asking for a completely new steak. At this point the manager came over to talk to me. I explained the situation. They brought me out a brand new steak, but again, rare. They said "this is our medium". Now, I'm sorry, but Medium is the most popular way to order a steak, and it has a defined look. It's not bordering on black & blue. I sent it back, again, and it came out close to medium. So as a warning, if you want a medium steak, you may need to order it medium well, in order for it to come out medium.
NOW...to be fair and complementary. The manager not only brought me out a new steak, not only brought me out a new baked potato so it would be hot with the steak, but he comped my steak, comped my baked potato, brought out a shrimp cocktail for me to eat while I waited (also comped) and because it was our anniversary, also comped me two desserts and coffee. So while it took some time to get a steak the way I wanted it, I give full credit to the manager and his staff for rectifying the situation and leaving me a more than satisfied customer. And the steak I finally got, was delicious. So there's that, too.
Yes, I would go back again.
Was not happy with where our party was seated
Hostess brought us to a secluded area behind bar when there were many seats in dining room. Which I would have preferred
Waiter suggested doughnut special dessert. Came out with different sauce than was presented in conversation
Lobster tails n filet migon on the bone was to die for. Attentive and friendly waitstaff. A tad loud and a little warm in temperature but not overbearingly so. Long wait to get car back from valet. The food was worth any negatives.
Excellent as always best steak best sushi anywhere
Birthday dinner for my son
Service was good, Sommelier Shawn was outstanding
We go to Rare often. Mostly sit at the bar for dinner and drinks (Natalie makes great drinks :) )
The food is mostly outstanding. Highly recommend the crab cocktail, sushi, salads and although I have never had their steak, everyone I've ever gone with has said it's always cooked perfectly.
It's a little bit of a pricey place, but the food and drinks are always worth it.
Food is always excellent and keeps us coming back. If it wasn't my wife's birthday, would have walked out. Why would you sit a regular customer in the bar when the main dining room was nearly empty. Then, no waiter for 20 minutes. Complained to manager who said, I'll take care of you, but couldn't even acknowledge wife's birthday with desert when I notified restaurant through open table that it was a special occasion. As I said, food was excellent and service good after complaint
We were seated in the atrium which was so beautiful. The good was sooo good. We ordered the octopus app and the Kobe sliders. Delish!! I ordered the sea bass. Unreal. Hubby ordered skirt Stesk. Yummy. Service was great as well.
Went for a birthday dinner. Micheal and Nathaniel are an amazing team. Their suggestions and service was outstanding.
