could improve in the service as we were placed beside a pillar and tend to be overlooked
Hi Doris, Thanks for your feedback, review and comments and for getting in touch about your experience here at Rare. I've spoken with our staff and team at also looked at the camera footage for the night. I know the table you were speaking of and it's not a bad table, the pillar is structural and it's one of our more popular tables. I'm unsure if you said anything to our team, however we'd of been happy to move you if you disliked it so much. In relation to our staff being in attentive, I can see that there were 4 guests who dined and there were a number of food items and drinks ordered, which did mean that our staff were with you regularly. I'm sorry you feel that the level of interaction was not as attentive as you'd have liked. Sometimes we're often told our staff are too over bearing and too attentive, so it's a fine line to find for each individual group and dining. Apologies if this had a negative impact on your experience. If you return or dine in future, please let us know on arrival your requirements or event at booking about the table preference and we'll do our best to accommodate you. Thanks for your comments,

The lunch special is always recommended. The service today unfortunately was not up to the usual standard. It was hard to catch the attention of the servers, or the servers were not in sight at all for an extended period when required. They were however, diligent in refilling our glasses with water.
Hi Jessica, Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a review of your visit and experience here at Rare Steakhouse. We're pleased to hear that there were elements of your visit you did enjoy, and I've raised your comments and feedback with our staff and team. I've chatted to the staff and team on the day, and even looked at the video footage. I can see that we had a reasonable lunch and service yesterday, and that you did mention that the staff were attentive with filling up your water, but it seems that perhaps when you had a request they weren't there. Without knowing the specifics of your requests and what you wanted/ needed what I do know is that our staff are trained to check in when meals are served and consistently during the meal and experience (like when topping up drinks, this is a good time to speak up if you require something). They do have other diners and customers to see to in the restaurant and do run their own meals from the kitchen, which is to ensure that you have a seamless guest experience with one person looking after to you vs having multiple staff to avoid confusion or being over bearing. This is a unique way of doing things, but we pride ourselves on our customer service and experience. Some diners do prefer more contact and interaction, others not so much (and we've had reviews where our eager and attentive staff have been too attentive), so it's a hard one. If dining in future please let us know on arrival if there is anything we can do to make your visit more enjoyable and we'll endevour to provide this. Thanks Chrissy Symeonakis

Great ambience and lively music. Attentive waitstaff. Nice decor. Obviously a steak house but would be nice to include a few more veggie friendly options. Overall great experience though.
Hi Louise, Thanks for taking the time to provide us and others with a review of your visit and experience here Rare Steakhouse. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed dining and that there were a number of elements you enjoyed. I'll be sure to pass on your comments and feedback to the team. We do have a few Vegetarian items on the menu, and largely we do use our chef's specials to add in a few items which regularly change. We are as you mentioned a Steakhouse foremost, but we have identified that we welcome and entertain eaters of all preferences, and our dishes (even the Vego and Vegan) get even the non meat eaters ordering them regularly. I'll certainly pass on your valued comments though, so thank you. We hope we'll welcome you back again soon and appreciate your recommendation. Best Wishes,

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
