We LOVED Rare. We decided to come here to celebrate a special occasion and were very impressed. My boyfriend had been here once before and had raved about it, so we were really looking forward to it. I, personally, am not a steak-lover......until Rare. It was the best steak I have ever had. So much flavour, so juicy, and cooked just right. The sides were also exceptional. We ordered a bottle of red and the staff were very helpful in finding us a suitable wine and the presentation was nice.
Negatives: the restaurant is just too crowded. Too many tables and chairs jammed together, and it really ruins the ambience of the place to constantly be backing into someone else's chair. It is a shame, because the place is nicely decorated and suitably-lit but they either need a bigger dining room or less tables!
Also, the dessert was sub-par. I ordered the s'mores and my boyfriend some fruit dessert (I can't remember what now) and they were not that great.
But we will definitely be back, it is the best steak in town.
