Getting a bit tired...

Came here on a Saturday night. Third visit in a year. Charm's wearing off a bit. Specials were not mentioned to us. "Team of waiters" hovered over us, checking if we needed another drink. Having the waitstaff computer kiosk near our booth was intrusive. Felt like I was at a high-end fast food... read more

What a terrible time. I went there last night. I have been there many times before with no issues. I sat at the bar, ask for a menu and a soda the bartenders were so busy talking among themselves, they completely ignored me. After waiting 15 minutes I got up and left.

This was our 2nd x here and I still don't think it's worth the money. It's a "happening" Long Island kind of place...not worth the money. The food is very good not fantastic...not worth the money.

This is a place that people want to be seen at. It attracts a lot of business people and therefore has become a very social hotspot. Not a great kids restaurant. The sushi is awesome. The wine is plentiful. The steaks are very good. The staff is attentive. But it is expensive. Not Il Molino expensive but just a shade... More

My husband and I have been going to Rare 650 for years, back when it had the old name. The seafood plateau is the best deal around. It's too bad you couldn't get this deal at an outdoor restaurant. The smaller size is filling as an appetizer for two. It has mussels, clams, oysters, crab legs, crab meat salad, seaweed... More

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

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.

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
