I have been to this restaurant probably a minimum 50 times and it seems to be going downhill with time. When the restaurant was Sagamore it was very friendly personal and the staff was great. Food was amazing and I was always excited to go there. When it converted to rare650 it was wonderful. The same staff the same great... More

High quality steaks or Veal dishes and others cooked to perfection, with a good assortment of side dishes, with only ok service, but expensive and a bit noisy/glitzy.

First time at RARE650. I took clients there for Christmas Dinner. The Steaks were abundant tasty and done to perfection. I had the Chilean sea Bass, which was perfect, as were the Apps and sides. prices (for a Steak House ) were not unreasonable. I'd definitely take clients there. The atmosphere was Great.

Nothing but good to say about this place perhaps other than the steep prices. Wine list could use a few more reasonable bottles.

Went to Rare 650 on NYE for dinner. The place was packed. We were seated in the Garden Room at a wonderful table. Even though the restaurant was very crowded the service was terrific. I had a wonderful veal chop and my wife had fish. We started the meal with some sushi that was first rate. Suffice to say we... More

We babysat so our son and daughter in law could join friends for dinner. This is the night they had. Party of 12 for dinner on Friday night. 20 minutes before they could place drink orders, 1 hour and 45 minutes before appetizers were placed in front of them. No one removed the empty plates from the table. After a... More

Wow, what a disappointing end to a great family dinner. After getting the 2 boys and the ex together for a holiday dinner we were treated to some good wine, awesome steak, seafood and these incredible doughnuts. Nice! After paying the check we went to leave and the stink at the entrance while waiting for our car from the people... More

This is one of the finest restaurants you"ll ever go to. If you don't like the food here then you must be dead. I and my wife have eaten here over 20 times.
