Rare Grill House
Overall an excellent experience; and once the planned update happens, it will be outstanding.
The service was perfect and much of our dinner was delicious. The only disappointments were the garlic mashed potatoes, which were soggy, and the double baked potato, which was overdone so the shell was inedible. Otherwise, a fine meal.
It was very good! Best steak and the mushrooms were to die for! Such friendly staff too. We will be back!
We have been a number of times and always had an excellent experience
Please do not decide for yourselves how much tip you deserve. You may also want to tell people that your 'special' is a 1/2" thick piece of grisseled meat that you intent to charge double the price of your regular menu meals. Was not impressed.
It was a wonderful meal. The wine that you can’t buy at the LCBO was incredible. The salad and steak was cooked to perfect. It was a great night.
By far, one of the worst dining experiences. We waited over an hour just for salads; this was after waiting 15 minutes for someone to take out order. My $42 filet mignon was cold. It was re-heated and came back still cold with the chunk of blue cheese slapped on the top. The garlic mashed potatoes had the consistency of instant potatoes. For $140, we won’t be back. Very disappointing.
Best restaurant and steaks in Peterborough, bar none
Amazing! The staff made the evening very special for our 12 year old great nephew.
The salad had many ingredients and the special lettuce, as a consequence, seemed a bit wilted. It was probably overdone with items. The trout was good but not excellent. I know that this is primarily a beef and pork restaurant so that might have been the issue.
The service was great. The food was amazing. The specials were actually special and unique. A fantastic dining experience.
The food was amazing, best ceasar salad ever!!!
My husband and I were very impressed with the food. He had steak and I had the pork, we both loved our meats and everything else on our plates. Great dish presentation and very nice atmosphere.
Will definitely come back and recommend to friends and family.
We would highly recommend Rare! Everything was absolutely amazing! Chef Tyler nailed it! The food was out of this world!
I had the red leaf salad to start. It was very good. I ordered the 12 oz ribeye. It was so tough I had a hard time cutting it. I brought the rest home and tried it the next day hoping it would be better but it wasn't. This is the second let down at this restaurant, and it will be the last. We had no issues with the service. I found it very cold in the restaurant. I didn't address my issues with the steak, I don't like to complain. I prefer to write honest reviews of my experience.
Best first dinner date ever. Wonderful service, food was fantastic, lovely wine selection, highly recommended.
Food was very good - bit of a problem with dessert...but it was rectified. We enjoyed ourselves
Best cut of steak I’ve had in years, cooked to perfection. Nice side dishes and dessert as well. Air conditioning was set a bit too cold.
Love Rare. Always our choice for special days and celebrations. Have recommended Rare to friends and family.
We had a very nice dinner for our anniversary. We were able to order a custom cut steak (a larger cut than the special offered) and were very pleased, the staff were so accommodating.
I had a fantastic dinner, the food was amazing, I think there might be a slight lack of lighting but that didn’t affect my experience in the slightest. It was a great outing! Thank you!
Excellent service, food was amazing as always. We are never disappointed when we go here!
Very attentive and overall a lovely experience. We’ll be back!
Highly recommended! The food is always spectacular here, as is the service, and the ambiance is almost perfect (they just need to dim the lights a bit). Try the bone marrow. Seriously. It's incredible.
Rare is our favourite restaurant. Every time we dine there we receive excellent service and eat the most amazing meal! I always get the same thing every time but always try the app or new side because the chef is a genius and comes up with delicious and creative recipes. We dream about our dinner for like a week after we eat there ☺️
The best steal have ever had. Side dishes are great as well and very creative. Truly the best restaurant in Peterborough
The food was good and beautifully presented, however, the service was slow although quite professionally done. Overall an acceptable evening.
We went for our Anniversary dinner and once again just like every time before, they did not disappoint! Every aspect was excellent! From my cocktail to start, to the delicious and rich appetizer, to the main course and wonderful dessert...truly amazing! Attentive service, explained the menu and amazing dinner again!
It was nice having daily specials to choose from also. We loved our rabbit foie gras appetizer.
Chef Tyler Scott is an absolute gem. He used us as guinea pigs for a vegan chocolate mousse that was so delicious it almost led to fisticuffs and bloodshed at our table. And none of us are vegan.
Easily the best restaurant in Peterborough. (not just for steaks)
The food was and is always amazing, the service wonderful. My steak was cooked to perfection and the braised beef cheek was delicious. The chicken liver mousse appetizer was so yummy we could have licked the jar clean - they should add this to their regular appetizer list! Would also love if Rare can add their grilled liver to the regular menu and if they can bring back their special offal day.
Lovely restaurant to enjoy a quiet meal with family. The service was great. The birthday candles on the desserts were a nice touch.
Great food with professional and knowledgeable service. They always have a new flavour or dish to try...and it’s always delicious.
Restaurant was good. Enjoyed being able to hear each other speak. Service was excellant. Food was only ok. The duck special was good but the sweet paste and truffle smoked cheddar competed with each other and took away from the duck. The asparagus soup was way to salty. I got the filet which was really good. The au gratin potatoes were almost black though. My husband got the pork chop and it was way too fatty, almost couldnt find the meat.
I would try it again but hope the food improves for price you pay.
Great server, great food! Can’t wait to see what they have on the menu next visit.
Need to stock some popular domestic beer not just micro brewery
Katie was fantastic! Food was amazing, very nice first impression
Great food and friendly staff. Was a great Valentine's dinner date.
We went for Valentine's Day. The restaurant was amazing!
