The service is starting to slip .. this should be rectified ASAP otherwise Rare Uptown will continue to lose business market share - needs to be sharp, timely and courteous but had none of that yday
Hi Shane, Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a review of your visit and experience with us at Rare. We're sorry to hear that the experience you had with us on this occassion, nor the previous was up to the great standard you've come to expect from us at Rare. I've raised with our management team, and we're committed to ensuring that all of our team members are brought up to speed and par. We're currently training some team members too, and it seems that this might have been when you dined. Not an excuse but likely an explanation and we've immediately reviewed the way in which we manage this. I have made a note on your file, so that when you return, we'll ensure to look care of you. We hope to have the opportunity to do so again, and appreciate you reaching out. Thanks

The ambience was great for lunch with a friend from overseas. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. The salt & pepper calamari with chilli sauce was amazing!!!

An interesting place, menu is quiet pricey however decor and vibe of the restaurant is a little more casual, feels like a bit of an identify crisis happening here. Food was great, but at the more expensive end of the scale.
Thanks for your lovely feedback and review Tracey. We're happy to hear that you had a lovely experience with us. We are on the premium side, but that is because we pride ourselves on the quality of food and service. We'll let our team know your feedback and we look forward to seeing you again soon

Food was awesome and the service was great. Expensive but well worth it.

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
