Description: Rare is one of Melbourne's Premium steakhouses, with two restaurants located at either end of the CBD. The menu features 15 different cuts of quality pasture and grain fed beef, all brushed with Rare's unique basting sauce and char-grilled to perfection. Complementing its menu of beef cuts, is a mouth-watering selection of sauces and a wide variety of delicious sides. For those who prefer something other than steak, Rare offers delicious alternatives such as pork spare ribs, lamb, chicken, seafood and vegetarian dishes. Perfectly matched to the fine food is a vast selection of premium Australian red wines, boutique beers and an equally impressive cocktail menu. Knowledgeable and attentive staff create an ambience of comfort and warmth, in stylish surroundings of white clothed tables and subtle lighting, with a bustling yet unhurried feel.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Everything ou read about the steaks is true, they're amazing! The service was great too. The restaurant is hidden down a lane way in venal Melbourne. All in all a lovely dining experience.

“Best steak I've had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I've eaten here and the King st restaurant 3 or 4 times and I can honestly say its my favourite steak in Australia. Always delicious and for the quality it's reasonably priced. My dad had the rack of ribs and they were also outstanding.

“Great Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We went for a early dinner and picked up their $35 for 2 course + glass of wine special. The steak for main was rather good considering the price - yes not the most tender piece of beef but I am sure if you bought a better cut off the main menu you could expect so. Cooked well, maybe very slightly overcooked. All in all a great value restaurant with load of potential. The staff were extremely attentive but unobtrusive.

“Good steak, bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We booked online which was nice and easy to do with instant confirmation.

We had some nice lamb cutlets and a chicken kebab to start. My main of T bone steak was cooked well and tasted very good. So far, so good.

Next came dessert or so we thought. After 30 minutes of waiting, including being told that we would be seen next, we gave up staring at the dessert menu and got out of our seats to pay the bill. When you are paying $45 for a main you would expect better.

The restaurant wasn't full at the time, plenty of empty tables whilst we were leaving, so I cannot think of a reason for this.
