Job well done

I was at Rare 650 for a rehearsal dinner. Wow, job well done. Everything was tip top, and the service was impeccable. There were probably 75 people, no waiting and everything came out hot . really recommended.

beautiful restaurant inside and out, not cheap but you should know that before you book since its a high end steakhouse. A nice touch is the sushi bar and they sell cigars and have an outdoor area you can smoke them after a nice meal.

Attended a rehearsal dinner at Rare 650 this past weekend. Food was incredible and the glassed in section where we sat made it feel like we eating in an outdoor garden. Wait staff were very nice and accommodating. I would definitely go back again if I am ever in the area again!

We've heard a lot about this restaurant and love their other one, Blackstone Steakhouse in Melville, Long Island. So we jumped on their emailed invite to a champagne pairing experience. The restaurant was a little easy to miss but the inside was beautiful including a great bar and sushi bar. The pairing was served outside in what they call a... More

First time here but not my last - simply delicious!! The food was to die for - the staff was great including out waiter, Christian - his recommendations were perfect but then I don't think any choices would have failed. Even the suggestion of my "Dynamite" drink was right on!! Can't wait to go back!!

Thursday night business meeting, turned into one of the best evenings had in awhile. This place offers the best ambiance for a quick happy hour martini, ladies night out, or even drinks over a negotiations. Foods delicious and Live music on Thursdays. Did I mention the extensive Wine collection - shout out to the Wine Director, he made the night... More

The food was great as well as the ambiance; however, you have to go there prepared to spend lots of money! I went with a friend and it more than $300 for the two us, including drinks. Depending on your budget, this may be a great place for special occasions.

So if you want a great dinner, or just want to meet friends for drinks or maybe do a little dancing this is the place. The food is excellent, especially the stuffed shrimp. Thursday are very poplar night, it an older crowd and it get packed.

We had their signature sushies, they were good, but severely overpriced. The server was very friendly. While the restaurant looks good, decor and all, we were sat next to the bar area and it turned very quickly into a night club which made dinner conversation very difficult. While I don't mind night club, they should not seat dinner guests away... More
