“Great place and very close to everything”
Reviewed June 11, 2014 via mobile

Went to this place as it was close to where we were staying. Went inside. Greeted warmly by maître de shown to table. Served quickly. Good wine selection and menu was good. We had the Lamp rump which was a great choice. Certainly we priced. Good food and efficient service. Would be more than happy to come here again

“Rare Steakhouse Superb Again”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Visited Melbourne and the first restaurant on the list is Rare Steakhouse on Kings Street.
Visited on a Monday night (note closed on a Sunday as we found out when we walked to the restaurant and it was closed - no problem visited Monday night). Both my partner and I had eye fillet steaks - again one of the best steaks I have had in a restaurant.
Yes this restaurant is fine dining and yes it is expensive, but treat yourself !!
We will be back again on the next visit to Melbourne and remains top of the list for when you are looking for a great steak meal.

“Great atmosphere and steak selection was fantastic”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Really enjoy the Rare brand. they did a marvellous job with the other place and the King St restaurant didn't disappoint either. The wine list was amazing and so were the steaks. The side selections as well as the sauces are even better then their descriptions! dont hesitate to book, remember you pay for what you get and they deliver excellent quality steaks. Cant wait to go back.

“It's a Steakhouse Alright”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Went there for a meal and ordered a steak for dinner.
The steak was cooked just the way that I wanted and really hit the spot.

The service was very good and prompt.

“Great Steak and Great Staff”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Shani and her crew put on for my old friend and I a fantastic meal. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place.

The atmosphere is top notch and the service first class.

The steaks have to be way up in the best in Melbourne.

Thanks Shani - we'll see you again soon.
