Visited with a group of 8 – great Cesar Salad, Ribeye with Creamed Spinach and Mushrooms, which was delicious, and thoroughly enjoyed the S’mores dessert!

Prices were on the high side, but food was great, so while it won’t be a regular stop for us, we would definitely recommend it to others, and hope to visit again in the future.

The rib eye and strip loin steaks were tender, flavor full and cooked to perfection. The service was attentive and well paced. It would be difficlult to find a better tasting and presented meal at any higher end restauant in any major city.

Rare has always been in my Top 3 category when it comes to Peterborough dining. Our last visit there didn't disappoint with regards to food, but we were let down terribly by the service. The dining room was a quarter full when we arrived, yet our server did not take the time to provide us with the evening's features. He failed to give us proper wine service by allowing us to fill our own glasses, and did not quality check our food. Luckily, the appetizers, entrees and desserts were delicious! We felt that our server's presence was devoid of personality, very much in contrast with the service we have received there in the past.
We are not ready to give up on Rare just yet, but the next time we visit we will request a different server.

I have visited Rare twice in the last month and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. It's the perfect location for a romantic dinner with my husband. We both love their perfectly prepared steaks and their amazing desserts. We also enjoy trying their wine recommendations, we haven't been disappointed yet! It's a good idea to make a reservation. We normally visit on a weeknight, when it is less busy. It's not a place that we take our children (they wouldn't appreciate it!) but we would definitely go their for a nice dinner with friends.
