We came here for one of our friends' birthday dinners. We had great experiences at steak restaurants in Australia and we wanted to have one last one before we left Australia. We are glad we picked Rare for that experience.
Our waitress was lovely and the steaks were AMAZING. One recommendation would be for the bar/bartender. We were brought an alcoholic tea when a non-alcoholic iced tea was requested. Also, I don't think the bartender knows how to make a Manhattan because what I received was not a Manhattan. The drink was fine, but not what we requested (the low "bar scene" score is due to this). We kept it and didn't mention it to our waitress since we had already asked for them to take back the tea and we didn't want to come off as the finicky American table. Altogether, excellent meal. Also, we told them before ordering our desserts that it was a member of our party's birthday and they came with a candle in one of our desserts, which was not expected/requested so that was a nice touch.
