What a special Valentine's Day!

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... read 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

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.

no two ways about it, great steaks, sushi and presentation, but, be prepared to pay for the privilege. Have the donuts for dessert!

Very nice restaurant with top notch food and service. We came on a Thursday night and it became a bit noisy later in the evening, but apart from that, it could not have been better. The prices are steep.

This restaurant is very cute and inviting. It is also very big and seems like fun just to hang out at the bar. There is enough space so the diners and the people at the bar aren't on top of one another. My boyfriend and I decided to eat the crab cake which was delicious, we also ate California rolls....
