The steaks were not that good and the price was high, especially for drinks. $13 for a glass of house wine? The fries were the tastiest part of the meal.

Hubby and I wanted to try this place after hearing good things. We went to the one near the Capitol. There were tables up front that were nearly full and very loud, but nice quiet tables in the back. We asked to be seated where...More

Medium Rare is a great concept if you like really tasty steak and fries. You really need to only decide how you want your steak cooked so perfect for groups. The meal comes with a very nice salad, and great Tuscan style bread. Your steak...More

Was not sure what to expect. Thin pieces of steak, french fries, and gravy? It didn't sound very good.... but boy was I wrong! It was delicious! Medium Rare has become a go to for dinner, especially with friends or family.

Medium Rare is definitely a winner! They provide a very simple, delicious approach to the French steak and frites. You start with a delicious salad coupled with a crusty bread. The server asks you how you like your steak and they cook it to perfection....More

So sad. Food was good but I used to come here every time I visited DC. Today, we were a party of ten, all business associates and they wouldn't separate the checks saying it was a new policy. What a major inconvenience to loyal customers....More

Stopped in for dinner here. Did not realize it is a fixed menu. Steak and fries. Boom! Salad was lovely, nicely dressed. Steak was flavorful and fries were crispy. The energy level is very high here. Music was load and fast paced. Not a romantic...More
