Very nice ambience, great friendly service & great wine. Entrées of lamb cutlets and garlic prawns were delicious. The steaks were cooked perfectly (medium). The sides of peas, mint & bacon were so tasty - perfect again! The food service was very quick, too quick, not enough time left between entrées & mains but overall, an excellent experience. Would definitely dine here again next time we're in Melbourne.

It was a rare occasion to find myself in that part of Melbourne, nonetheless, it was a delight to discover Rare Steakhouse and enjoy some of its many delights. First impressions were; the ambience is warm and inviting, the staff are friendly and attentive without being intrusive and the menu is interesting and varied. With white table cloths and comfortable furniture, Rare has a sense of class without being ostentatious. The wine list has been given a lot of thought and the recommendations were spot on. My friend and I ordered steaks of course, being in steakhouse, both of which were cooked to perfection. Steak is not the only fare on offer at Rare, and all the meals, including the devilish desserts, are prepared with great ingredients and lots of care. For your taste buds, the essence of Rare is their selection of mouth-watering sauces to accompany your meal - which, I understand are a particular passion of the management. Overall, an outstanding experience, a memorable evening and a restaurant that is now on my all time favourites list of things to do in Melbourne.

This gem of a restaurant is not to be missed. Both my guest and I selected the steaks on the recommendation of the manager: the portions were generous and mouth-wateringly good. The selection of wines was excellent and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. I have resolved to return as many times as it takes to try everything on the menu. With its grilled boerewors, or farmer's sausage (a South African specialty) this restaurant is a refreshing example of the quality and diversity of food available in a city spoiled for choice.

Rare Steakhouse Downtown Overview

Residing in King Street in downtown Melbourne City, sits Rare Steakhousw - the third sister establishment to the brand, now also offering locations on Little Collins Street and Goldie Place. Not just your average steakhouse, Rare provides a modern atmosphere with exposed brick walls, timber tables, ambient lighting and an open wine cellar, setting a relaxed scene to enjoy a meal shared over a bottle of Merlot, with your own Rare wine glasses and steak knives available for purchase to take home as a memento. Start with an entrée of thyme gnocchi with truffled asparagus, before delving into a main of succulent grilled kangaroo back-strap; be sure to save room for desserts like baked New York cheesecake. There are also plenty of vegetarian options for those who like it a little lighter.
