    The second time I have had the pleasure of dining at Rare Uptown and it certainly won’t be the last! On our table, we ordered mains, desserts and drinks. A friend of mine had the barramundi which she said was excellent - plate cleaned! My partner had the pasture fed Eye Fillet, again plate cleaned! I had the on-the-bone Rib Eye, cooked to perfection, with mash and a side of broccolini and beans - plates cleaned again! All mains of exceptional quality and the service here is second to none! Desserts - best sticky date pudding this writer has had ever! Lots of butterscotch sauce and honeycomb shards accompanied a beautiful pudding and ice cream. Awesome! All washed down with a Philip Shaw Pinot Noir from Orange NSW and a cheeky little Arran single malt scotch whisky to finish. When I’m back in Melbourne again soon, Rare Uptown most definitely gets another visit from me!

    As soon as we arrived to Rare we received pleasant and attentive service. The food was very nice - from the oysters entree, to the mains (we both had steak with chips and shared the beans and broccolini), and the desserts - cheesecake and affogato - it all added up to a very pleasant evening. (One slight drawback - we wanted the chateaubriand and we missed out by one order, as they ran out Luckily they had a huge menu of other steak options to choose from). We had a number of servers and they were all friendly, efficient and professional. We also ended up getting some complimentary macarons and a few chocolates to celebrate our anniversary as well. We were so full though we had to take them home! Would recommend this to locals and visitors alike. It's not too casual, and not too fancy; but still intimate. Thanks for a lovely experience!

    Outstanding service and atmosphere. The assortment of steak options was fantastic. Scotch filet superb, dry aged porterhouse was a bad cut with gristle throughout. Will definitely try again!

    If you love steak, this place should be on your "must try" list. Everyone was happy with their meal, especially the 2 that had the chateaubriand - magnificent! Great wine list, great service too. Room is a bit noisy but it was a good atmosphere.

    Never dissapoints, very helpful and professional staff, enough space between tables so it doesn't fell too overcrowded. The food itself is just perfect, do yourself a favor and get the arancini! Steak was amazing.

    Found this resturant close to our Hotel. Service was great , food was excellent but the service was to rushed. no sooner had we finished our entree , when the main course was placed in front of us . We had a 7pm booking - had 2 courses and gone by 8pm !

    Food was not bad, a bit of a wait and on the pricey side. 2 people in the party ordered the 200g steak and they look like a pretty small portion. Without the fries you probably would not be full enough.

    Rare Uptown (Lt Collins St)

    Thanks for your review, Vivian. Glad to hear that you enjoyed most elements of your time with us. We are on the premium side, but pride ourselves on quality over quantity. If ever you weren't happy with our food, please let us know during your visit. Hope to see you again soon.

    Thank you James for your attention - the food was really great I has scallops to start (amazing) and my wife had chicken wings (really crispy and the spice was perfect). My Scotch Fillet steak was a little overcooked, but sill tasty and the rack of ribs was fantastic value for money. There was no need for dessert but we had one anyway and both were really a surprise. Vanilla ice-cream with Mars Bar sauce (yum) and the New York Cheesecake was big enough to share A very easy restaurant to recommend

    Rare Uptown (Lt Collins St)

    Thanks for your lovely feedback and comments Colin. We're pleased to hear that you had a lovely evening and that James took great care of you. We'll be sure to pass your feedback onto him and our management team. We're sorry to hear that the steak was a little more done than it should have been. I'm unsure if you mentioned this to James on the day, but we'd have only been too happy to replace this. No one ever really "needs" dessert lol, but we're glad you gave in and went for the one you did. The Mars Bar sauce is quite next level. We appreciate your feedback and recommendation, and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

About the restaurant

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
