First time at Rare and it did not disappoint. We had a reservation that we had to push back (quite easily, thanks OpenTable) and we’re seated quickly upon arrival. Ambience was delightful, tables seem to be pretty close to the booths but didn’t cause lots of noise. Our server was terrific and knowledgeable of each selection which was helpful for us. We both had the wet aged New York Strip, best steak I have had in the Milwaukee area! The side dishes (asparagus) left a bit to be desired, which is why 4/5 stars was given. Regardless, it was a phenomenal experience and will go again.
Justin the bartender that took care of my girlfriend and I was absolutely outstanding! He made my girlfriend's birthday so enjoyable! Thank you for the outstanding service! Will definitely be back!
Classic high end steakhouse with very good food, cooked the way you requested. The thing that made this experience stand out was the service. Our waiter, Justin, was outstanding. His supporting cast was also amazing. Every time someone walked by, they would tend to your table. Will return for a special occasion!
It was very nice
Bartender not friendly. Other customer carrying on speaker phone conversation, which carried throughout restaurant, without management addressing!
Waiter—amazing, perfect, lots of good information, and great personality. He had a good sense of humor and needs to be an actor. Kinda reminded me of Steve Buscemi.
Food—oysters Rockefeller not huge but who cares when they taste that great?! Bees Knees cocktail was so good. Wedge salad, baked mushrooms, Brussels sprouts, pork belly, pistachio creme brûlée all perfection. The bread is this lovely cloud bread, and it’s served with citrus-infused butter that knocked me over.
Steaks—I didn’t have one, but my husband did and said it was perfectly cooked and tasted great.
Absolutely delicious and a nice Taste throughout the whole meal
Not nearly the best steak I have ever eaten, but the definitely the most expensive.
My experience at this restaraunt was incredible the food was amazing and our server tanner was fantastic would 100% recommend for anyone that is thinking about dining here
The NY strip was salty. For $66 it should be perfect! The previous times I went it was great! Not this time though. It is one of the best steakhouse in the city but they missed on this one. I still do recommend going it’s a nice experience
Rare was pretty good. I think they are trying to be reminiscent of a fancy supper club. The food was good albeit overpriced and the same could be said about the wine list. The meals were prepared exactly to order, which is a huge plus! Contrary to a different reviewer, I thought the sides were much better than the steaks. The staff was great and very welcoming and even with the crowd (pretty much a full house), it wasn't that loud. The seating, since we had a "sweetheart" booth, was horribly uncomfortable. One nice benefit was touchless pay - I have found in these recent months to much prefer it over other payment options. No waiting... Would I recommend the restaurant to a friend - yes. Would I eat there again - yes. YMMV
The steaks were excellent. Salad and Sides okay. Put that it was special occasion on the reservation but it was not acknowledged. Otherwise, the service was great.
Favorite steak joint in Milwaukee. Love this place.
This is a wonderful restaurant, great craft cocktails served in a terrific ambience looks like an old English club,With subdued intimate lighting, and plush burgundy chairs and booths, the create a wonderful. Setting for a romantic dinner
The wagyu steak was very well prepared and served, blow torched at the edges for the right amount of minimal carbonization, desserts were excellent and the latte ended the night on a terrific notes
We’ve been to many great steakhouses and this one will be added to our list! The service was especially awesome!
I have been to Rare Several times but was disappointed with our last visit. Our service was really slow and it took a long time for the food. The Valet was also very back up and it caused another really long wait. We ended up getting our own car. This will not stop us from going to Rare again. We always treat ourselves to the Waygu and it was especially great on Saturday night.
Unexpectedly great meal - lot of rare cuts that are prepared very well. Not expected in a smaller city like Milwaukee. Service was great and has the feel of an old-school traditional steakhouse. Highly recommended!
I have seen this restaurant for a long long time and decided to give a shot; food was really really good, I had the best Oyster Rockefeller and ordered the Japanese Wagyu Beef, it was $40 per oz. we ordered 8 oz, just that was $400.00 steak that I ever had, since I only live once, just try once. It was just like butter in your mouth. It is worth it. It was an exceptional meal.
Had an amazing dining experience here. Our server, Chase I believe was his name, was outstanding and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was very delicious and the cocktails were too. I had the dry aged tomahawk which was cooked perfect to medium rare, and served sliced in a board. Bananas foster was served table side with some awesome presentation as well.I do wish they had a dress code though, when out dining at such a fine restaurant you don’t expect to see people in camouflage crocs and shorts.
Dining experience was phenomenal!
We had a very wonderful experience at Rare as we celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary. Great steaks, great service. All good!!!
Just a real treat, A+ from beginning to end. Spot on service, and all food was outstanding from the seasonal salad and appetizers to the main courses and on thru Cherries Jubilee.
Everything was Great! Definite will be returning!!!!
Excellent food and service. Our server Raj was outstanding in his explanations of the menu, and attentive to all our needs. A place you want to give you service to!
The food was outstanding and the service top notch! Justin took excellent care of us. I highly recommend the Bottleneck cut.
Only negative was the coffee, didn't care for it.
The food perfectly prepared.
Super overpriced for what little you get. Steaks were bland. The bread puff things were an awesome suprise.
Great food and amazing service.
Food was absolutely outstanding. Oysters rockefeller were suberb, the little bits of bacon just sent it over the top. Watermelon/arugula salad was so light and fresh, small bits of goat cheese were a fine addition. The steak was by far the best I've ever had: so tender, flavorful and juicy. Added truffle butter as well, so delicious. Service was excellent; overall well worth the money spent, will definitely visit again.
When we recently visited, we ordered the tomahawk steak 'medium. It was served very rare and extremely fatty without the fat being rendered. It was gross. As far as the value, the steak was $110 for 36 oz but it did not seem like much meat for the price - I think the bone was a huge part of the 36 ounces. The pop ups were fabulous and the service (Joshua(?) or Jason (?)) was very good! But we would not come back because of the very poor quality of the steak.
A night to remember!
Loved the atmosphere and the food was excellent--steak, oysters, lobster bisque. Highly recommend for dinner!
Service was top notch, lobster great ,oysters super fresh. The steak was awful. $66 for a New York strip I could have gotten better from Walmart. Don't think we will return.
First visit. Valet parking. Began with excellent drinks at the bar. (Ginger pear martini.). Highly recommend the lobster bisque! One steak and one salmon dish - both excellent and nicely seasoned. Nice bottle of wine (under $50). Also a complimentary birthday creme brûlée. Very delicate, crunchy topping. Attentive, friendly service. Back to the bar for coffee. A new favorite place for special occasions!
Buns are soooo good!!!
While the steaks were prepared to perfect temperature, I don’t know that we would order three accompaniments next time. Way too much food and no way to have room for dessert!
We suffered through the Door County Cherry Cheesecake.
It was my 5 year wedding anniversary. Took my wife Laura there used open table which I use all the time and when we got there our reservation wasn’t in the system ? When RARE called us at 2 confirmation I called back and confirmed so the open table app must have not relay the message back to RaRE etc other then tht hiccup the service from Quinn our waitress was 10-10 she was amazing it was one of the first times me and my wife have had dinner and been down town since the epidemic hit and we have always wanted to try but never got a chance! We were so happy with the the steaks we orders and the wine she recommended me a wine hater I loved the bottle and had some. Don’t let Quinn leave she ask for a raise give it to her she will one day be a manager or own a restaurant she was the most attentive most knowledgeable person to have ever served us we eat all over the world Mexico Dominican etc thank you make sure you tell her show her how happy we were thank you
We were greeted in the bar area where we had a private table for two. It was beautiful - had never been there. The professional, warm, kind bartender let us take time to acquaint ourselves with the menu. We got our drinks and shortly thereafter, and appetizer - excellent calamari! It might be a steak house, but it is hard to get great fish all over, so we chose the Chilean Sea Bass, a phenomenal choice. I will surely try a steak next run, but I've never had Sea Bass as perfect as this was, served in a delicious bed of spinach. I will be back, and hopefully OFTEN!
I spent $160 on the worst steak I’ve ever had. The wagyu was cold and slimy. We ordered our ribeye medium and it came out neon red and cold. We would never go back. I never write reviews I just can’t get over this one
The food was wonderful. The staff was very pleasant. Great ambiance.
