Stopped in without a reservation and was greeted by a smiling hostess and were immediately seated. Our waiter was cordial and took our cocktail order. After going over their menu specials, we ordered salad, porterhouse for two and baked potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly. The entire meal was fantastic.

Food is good- but but not worth it at the prices they charge. I will say the staff that works here are excellent- if this the review was just about the staff , then I would've given this place five stars. Don't waste your money

Waited a long time to be seated even with reservations. It was my first time there. It seem that the manager seated all his regulars and friends and kept on skipping us. When asked what was going on he was nasty about it. Didn't offer an explanation or an apology right away. Towards the end someone else came and apologize.... More

Syosset is a hike from our town and with our love of martinis and scotch, thought we'd spring for a stretch limo where we had our second bottle of Moet Chandon. Good idea. We were nicely seated by the hostess and ordered a lobster cocktail and their sushi special plate. Thinking it was a cup with lobster meat, imagine our... More

Always consistent . Always relaxing. Not the cheapest place in town but definitely one of the most satisfying. We love their Sunday special! Well worth it.

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
