“Finest L.I. Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Rare 650 has exellent atmosphere, food and above all service.The restaurant has 4 distinct seating areas which all have great atmospheres. The steak and grilled whole fish are incomparable. The side dishes are well prepared as are the salads. The sushi is better than any "sushi restaurant" I have been to . The wine list is extensive and the drinks are well prepared and the barstaff does not skimp on the alcohol. The waitstaff is knowledgable and professional. The prices are not cheap, but the dining experience is well worth the cost.

“Delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

My husband and I just went to Rare 650 as it is in our neighborhood and pass it all the time. I had heard it was delicious and so wanted to find out for myself!! Just walking in I was very impressed, beautiful decor lots of outdoor seating. An impressive bar. We were given a very friendly welcome and quickly escorted to our booth. Sat down and my husband and I were very impressed thus far. A waitress came over immediately and introduced herself. My husband and I ordered the Surf & Turf Special. We had french onion soup to start and the special came with the fillet mignon and 2 lb lobster. Choice of potatoe and vegetable for two. Ordered the hash browns, they were delicious!! For dessert I had the apple struedel and my husband had the cheesecake. Everyting was absolutely delicious and hot, great portions and great service. Highly recommend this restuarant, the Surf & Turf special is a great deal!!

The food at Rare was Fabulous!!! Decor was stunning! Far exceeded my expectations!! Definetly upscale but well worth it!!!I actually wish our table wasn't ready when we arrived so we would have had a few minutes to hang around the bar area!

“Dress to Impress”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Been here a few times at this people watching steak house on Long Island. Service was excellent, food is very good but a little overpriced. Appetizers are amazing, loved the scallops with figs, oysters, shrimp with watermelon, can't go wrong with any of the sushi special rolls. Bar can get crowded on the weekends. The upstairs seating area is more private, downstairs by the bar can get a little noisy and crowded. Great for a special occasion, Just be prepared to drop about $250.00 if you're having dinner for two with appetizers, drinks, dessert.
