Food is great. A bit too noisy because of a few groups.

By accident one of the waitress spilled on me a drink. No compensation was offered for dry cleaning. Apart from that, very good atmosphere and food

I had the Eye Fillet, which I felt was chewy and tasted as though it had just been heated up on the grill.
Hi Scott, we can't tell you how sorry we are that you didn't enjoy your steak and while we genuinely appreciate you bringing it to our attention now, we really wish you had let us know on the night so we could have fixed the issue immediately. As you can imagine we take an enormous amount of pride in our steaks and are constantly checking the quality and standard of both the product we receive from our suppliers and the way they are handled and prepared by our team in the kitchen. We make it a point to check on our customers to ensure they are happy when they receive their steak. If for any reason they are not, restaurant policy is to offer a replacement cut or to give guests the option of trying a different cut. We are constantly working to improve our service and would love to know if a staff member did check in with you? We hope that you will visit us again and give us the chance to demonstrate to you how very seriously we take our steak! Please contact us at midtown@raresteakhouse.com.au to discuss and we'd like to welcome you back to enjoy a steak as we should have on us. Thanks,

I have been Rare uptown and midtown both but I prefer midtown personally. This time I had dinner with my old friend from Korea. The food was absolutely perfect but service was a bit slow to compare with usual. took long to order food and pretty hard to find a floor staff to ask something extra but definitely coming back

Just disappointed with how the steaks were cooked, both asked for medium well. One came out well done and the other medium.
