Medium Rare - Bethesda
Took my girlfriend here for a birthday brunch. Everything was superb! Highly recommend the French toast!
Every part of the meal was delicious and came out quickly. They surprise you with a second serving of steak and fries with their special sauce. Will definitely be back for another great meal
We like the steak/fries/salad combo. Waiter didn't tell us they bring seconds! Steak is tasty. A good place to go when you have a desire for a simple but well made steak dinner and good ambiance.
Came here for brunch! They have a great deal for unlimited drinks with a decent amount of food. The food was very flavorful. They added a lot of OJ to the drinks so if you like stronger drinks then you should ask for less juice. Great experience! The outdoor seating was fantastic.
Had the beat brunch and the lady at the door smelled so good. She was super helpful and let me change my mind about sitting outside on the patio. Would recommend 100 times. The food was the best!!!
Great location! Amazing brunch deal! Only place I know that is local that has bottomless mimosas! Food options are pretty good. Overall great ambiance and good steaks!
They did a good job on outdoor seating. Will be back!
Great concept! My wife and I wanted to have a steak dinner, but we had shied away from Medium Rare as we thought the menu to be a bit too sparse. I can happily report that this works! We booked an inside table for 6PM. Pretty empty at that time although there was an obvious thriving take-out business happening. Service was impeccable - attentive but keeping a safe distance. The bread is fantastic - nice crispy crust, served with butter. The wine list is limited, but this also works. While the recommended Californian cab was indeed quite full-bodied, I preferred the more muted Bordeaux. Several reds and whites, as well as beers are available.
The steak itself, we had medium rare of course. It comes with an au poivre sauce that is mild and flavorful. And the fries are the thin and crispy type, incroyable. But first is a nice leafy green salad with sliced grape tomatoes and dressing, also quite nice.
Perhaps the best part - once you have consumed the portion of steak, they bring another with fries.
Bravo! This is one of our favorites now.
It's just one of my FAV places to go! Food is excellent. Service is fabulous. Sitting outside on a nice day is just such a bonus during the past year of being closed in.
This was our second time eating at Medium Rare during the pandemic and it was a terrible experience. It started with seating us at a table. We asked to be moved to spread our a bit from other patrons. The hostess rudely went we are at 50% capacity so we can seat you where you were. The restaurant was empty except for 2 other tables so it seemed rediculous to be sat directly next to one. Even during the time we were there there was only one other table that came in. The worst part of the dining experience involved alcohol. We both had one beer each and told our server we were done for the night. We got asked another two times by the server and also by the hostess. It appeared that only one beer was not the answer. It was just a bad experience overall. I don't think I will ever be back. Bethesda has a lot better dining options.
Delicious food and outstanding, quick service. Very spaced out seating with indoor and outdoor options.
Birthday celebration was fantastic
This was our first time visiting Medium Rare and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was! The service was friendly and fast. We were very happy to be able to sit outside though it’s obviously not as nice of an ambience as indoors would have been. There was a noisy group of teens near us celebrating a birthday but nothing about that could be controlled. Once they left the noise level was fine. We live nearby and will definitely be back!
I really loved the service. It was mainly where we sat that at times when the door open we kept getting the gold breeze. But regardless of that small thing everything was great
Very few options, but the food was good. I don’t think I’ll go back, but I must say the fries and steak meal (seems like everyone in the restaurant ordered this) was pretty good. I also liked the carrot cake and would definitely recommend it.
Good food and atmosphere. We had a good time.
The food and service were great; however, we were very disheartened with their COVID precautions. As of writing this review, Montgomery County is directed to seat up to 25% capacity indoors. Every single table was being sat at this restaurant. We were also maybe 3 feet from the table next to us. So they were not adhering to guidelines to locate tables at least 6 feet apart. We were very excited to dine out comfortably for the first time in about a year and unfortunately this was not a good choice. We were very disappointed to find a restaurant was not respecting and adhering to the COVID guidelines that were issued by the county. It's important for restaurants to respect these guidelines so that we can get things back to normal more quickly.
Especially during the pandemic, this restaurant has managed to adapt and continue to serve high quality steaks with generous portions while accommodating patron needs
Great as always. Thx
Service was meh - I had indicated we were celebrating a birthday and that was completely ignored. They were very eager to give us the bill and send us on our way.
Food was excellent as always.
Perfect COVID setup outdoors with heaters but open tents
It was pleasant. Nice and quiet. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Thanks
The food tasted very good, but the portion was very disappointing. It was all about the bottomless drinks.
Always a great meal. The staff is great, especially Vanessa the manager.
Just excellent in every category! Marina , the manager, was just as lovely as she could be and the spectacular service offered by Nick will long be remembered !
But the highlight is the well planned and well executed dinner. Salad, steak ( two rounds), pommes frites, and fresh bread are totally enjoyable. Don’t miss out on this memorable dining experience in the heart of Bethesda.
We went for Valentine’s Day. We love this place. It’s easy because you know what you are getting and the food is really good! The service is always great too.
Eaten At this location several times before unfortunately the restaurant has been closed due to Covid and the direction by Montgomery County. It re-opened on Valentine’s Day and we made reservations for indoor dining on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately when we arrive they over booked the entire restaurant we’re on able to give us an indoor table and we were forced to sit outside and 35° weather with a heat lamp above us that provided absolutely zero heat. Being the first day restaurants have been reopened in Montgomery county Maryland and every place being booked we had no choice but to sit there and to freeze while we ate. The manager was very uncooperativeAnd rude.
When asked why we didn’t get the table that we booked the answer was everyone booked indoors and there isn’t enough seating. I didn’t spend over $100 just sit in 35° weather and freeze miserably while eating food that instantly froze while being brought to our outdoor table.
While I understand their desire to recoup lost revenue during the Covid events this is not the way to do it. I will never eat at this restaurant again.
The food is very good and plentiful. It’s a set menu so you know what to expect.
Horrible customer service, we were sat down and brought the check within 35 minutes. With no time to enjoy our good, let alone get a second round of drinks or dessert.
Great experience as always. Still the best deal and best steak. That sauce is gold! Another great evening at Medium Rare!
Cutlery and napkins weren’t very clean. One of our salads had a hair.
Being seated outside during winter was a new adventure for both of us. The food was delicious even though we could not shake the chill from our bones. COVID created something new for us and it did not ruin our experience.
It was great!!!
We ate outside on a cold evening. They had tents, but our table was not in the tent. It was a bit breezy, but we brought a blanket so it turned out fine. The heaters at each table helped too. The staff was super friendly and the food stayed hot, even though it was in the low 30's when we ate.
I’ve been here many times and chose this spot for my birthday because I’ve loved it in the past. Yesterday however, I was nothing but dissatisfied. I understand Covid restricts parties to 6 people to a table, but I spoke with somebody on the phone who told me they could make a reservation for 7! When I showed up, I didn’t even have a reservation! I tried to explain my situation and the hostess was nothing but rude to me and my party; she was especially in my face in particular. When we finally got seated, the servers were all inattentive to our two tables. Even though my friends reminded our servers throughout the brunch that it was my birthday, I never received the ice cream with the fun candle brought out to sing happy birthday to. I know medium rare does better than this and I’m not happy with my experience, especially considering my birthday was not even acknowledged.
Incredible brunch! One of my all time favorite restaurants in the DMV.
Great place! The service is excellent and the steak tastes delicious, especially the sauce. The only thing would be to have fancier fries or sides options.
great service as always! delicious food and always easy to make an outdoor reservation
love love love Medium Rare. I would drink the sauce out of a wine glass.
