We had a wonderful and delicious steak dinner at RAre 650. However the service was quite slow. So…we complained. The staff was most attentive and cooperative after the complaint and even brought over complimentary dessert. Don't miss those donuts!!!

My husband & I met our adult son from the city for dinner....we arrived for dinner, early, so we asked for a drink in the bar, then returned to the host & hostess to be seated. We were completely circled back through the main dining area - to be seated in the bar....hmm. Our Junior (I hope?) waiter took our... More

Usually the service at Rare650 is top notch, very professional. Unfortunately, last night was an exception. It was my daughter's 25th birthday and we were surprising her with another family joining us. The other family arrived before us and they told the hostess that they wanted to surprise us. When we arrived they said "oh, the other family has arrived... More

There were four of us dining...2 steaks, a salad, a chicken entree, and a shrimp entree. Steaks were mediocre, chicken was dry, shrimp had to be sent back because one was NOT DEVEINED and the salad was horrid. The side dish of macaroni and cheese with lobster was good. I will not return to this restaurant. I read a review... More

Went to a private party this past weekend and everything we had was delicious. The hosts and wait staff were very attentive and friendly. It was a big party and everyone got what they needed. There was a cocktail brunch hour with delicious passings of all sorts and very different than your normal..baby tacos, a tiny tiny potato topped with... More

I seldom write a review indicating that a restaurant is over-priced since with the higher pricing, you expect a professional wait staff and a calming ambience set by the maitre'd. Unfortunately, both were lacking, with the food being only above average. I had dinner on a Monday evening. The restaurant was not crowded as there were available tables and no... More

We dined here on Saturday evening, as we were waiting for one member of party of four, we stopped at the bar for a cocktail. Drinks were steeply priced at $14 each and when the time came to be seated, we were expected to carry our drinks upstairs to the table. The menu was overpriced to say the least with... More

My friend invited us to Rare 650 to have a dinner tonight. We started with taco salad and two other salads, then the surf and turf ( including two two lbs lobster and a huge T bone steak. The waiter was friendly and quite diligently to serve us. The steak was cooked medium and rare. Tasted just right and delicious.... More
