Top Notch

This place has excellent service and great food. Everything we had from the sushi to the steak was insanely delicious. This place is pricey but worth every dollar.

I went to this restaurant while on business trip. I had the New York striploin. The texture of the beef was somewhat tough. The seasoning was average. All in all, a reasonable, if not exceptional, experience.

Dined 4/10/15 - Upon walking into the establishment, it was lovely. The host asked where we would like to sit, we stated we had never been here before. He said the conservatory was the best seats in the house. I disagree! It was loud and we could hear conversations from tables across the room. It was far from a romantic... More

Had a wonderful piece of salmon and petite filet for my daughter. Joe made delicious wine suggestions. We then enjoyed a fabulous beet salad and the entrees were great. Prices are hefty. They usually have an amazing sushi roll to share as an app or your entree. That's outstanding. So crowded it took a while to get or check. 2... More

Went back to this restaurant for our anniversary last night, had the Porterhouse steak for two, mashed potatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, and an oyster appetizer and this was probably the best meal we have had in the last year at any place. The steak was order medium and was served a little on the rare side but was absolutely perfect. I... More

A native of Syosset, had always driven by Rare 650 and never gave it a second look. Several restaurants have been in this spot and all have failed. My husband's secretary gave him a gift certificate here for Xmas and we decided to give it a try- for Valentine's Day. An early reservation allowed us a beautiful seating in the... More

I know its Valentines day but dont overbook the house by 500% An 830pm reservation doesn't mean we want to wait until 1015pm to sit down. Service sucked. Servers disappear and forget items and make a late effort to makeup for it. Food was decent. Blackstone still their best steakhouse. Disappointing carnivorous experience

We took advantage of the Sunday special and had the combination filet mignon/lobster for 2. The service was excellent. The waiter was attentive, but not intrusive. The food is delicious. Definitely worth the money.

This place is very good. The ambiance is outstanding, a very nice place to come for happy hour, a great bar scene, just phenomenal drinks too. It is VERY EXPENSIVE for what you get. And I am not someone who minds spending generously on food - I am known for going to places that cost over $1000 per person for... More
