The experience was fantastic, I booked as it was prior to a show and wanted to catch up with my friends in a quiet location. The service was great and food was delicious. Would definitely recommend this location to friends and family and come back soon.

The service was great but the steak a bit dry.
Hi Thy, Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a review of your visit and experience here at Rare. We're pleased to hear that there were elements of your visit you enjoyed, and we're sorry to hear that the steak you ordered wasn't as it should have been. I'm unsure if you mentioned anything at the time, to our staff and team when they checked in but we would have been more than happy to have provided a replacement or remedied the issue. If you can let us know the cut that you ordered, and how it was cooked that would be great and I'll then be able to follow up with our chef and team, and we'd like to have you back. Our staff are generally pretty good at getting the steaks pretty perfect but from time to time we do miss it (human error). Please send me an email to chrissy@creativelittlesoul.com.au Thanks, Chrissy

We ordered Wagyu steak and Pork ribs. We like the main meal as expected. The entree was calamari which was so delicious and succulent . It also good size for two. The other entree was garlic bread which was also good. The service manager allow us to seat earlier than the booking time. The staff was very friendly and nice. We will comeback again to celebrate special occasion.

I was quite disappointed. I asked for a my steak to be cooked medium, It came out mostly rare with the fat white. The steak itself had quite a lot of connective tissue and was less than flavoursome. I sent the steak back to be cooked and it was passable once recooked.
Hi Robert, Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a review of your visit and experience here with us at Rare Steakhouse. We're sorry to hear that experience you had with us, was not the one we pride ourselves on, nor was it up to either of our standards. I've spoken to out staff and team about this, and we have spoken to our suppliers about the cuts of beef. Given that they are beastly animals, often it's not until they're cut into/ eaten that we can identify if there are any structural issues (like the cut of the steak/ tissue or fat). We do endevour to ensure we serve on the best steaks possible so your feedback and comments are integral. We'd like to invite you in to dine with us, and to provide you with a voucher to return. Please contact me directly - chrissy@creativelittlesoul.com.au and I'll make those necessary arrangements for you. Hopefully we can welcome you back to enjoy the experience you should have had in the first place.

About Rare Uptown (Lt Collins St)

Real good steak at Rare... Well cooked, good quality steak is a rarity. Right? Wrong. Not in Melbourne, and not at Rare Steakhouse who offers meat lovers fifteen different cuts of quality pasture and grain fed beef, brushed with Rare’s own basting sauce and chargrilled to perfection. White linen tables and intimate subtle lighting creates a silky smooth and sophisticated ambience and there’s always a bustling, fast paced but unhurried vibe. Match your meat selection with a a drink from the extensive range of premium Australian red wines, or order a boutique beer or cocktail from the drinks menu. Whatever bevie you choose, it will go down swimmingly well with your top quality steak. And no, you don’t have to have it rare as the name would suggest. Best dish: any of of the fifteen steaks
