    The restaurant was crowded and very loud. The staff overall friendly. The food not bad, but for the price not good and warm enough. The food we ordered was wrong or even got forgotten, so we had to remember the staff several times. We expected more!

    Good service and the quality of the food served (steak particular) was pretty good. Pricing decent, but would be better if portions were slightly bigger. Central location means it’s a good place for business lunches or dinners.

    A nice place to enjoy a good meal in a nice atmosphere. Friendly staff and good food. Go and enjoy. Quality food has its price so the price is fair.

    Rare King St has been my go to for many years when dining with partners, friends, family etc. It is generally fantastic however the last 2 dining experiences havent been great. Service etc on point as always, but i feel the meat quality has dropped... I also think maybe the chefs have changed as in the past the style (med) has been more on the rare/med side. Next time i go, i will need to make my own enquiries with the wait staff

    The steak were very much overcooked for all 5 of us. Really unexpected from a steak house. Also, the steak were close to tasteless.

    Below average food. Calamari was oily and came out alarmingly fast. Steak was tough, dry and overcooked - not ideal for a steakhouse!
