Great atmosphere for all kinds of occasions. We just came in for a dinner and it turned into a celebration. My kids said it was the best meal of their lives! Lol
Great food and great service. Want to come back for the brunch soon
A simple concept executed extremely well. Great food and the expanded outdoor seating is great!
Never a disappointment!!
Asked for salt twice. Finally got up and went inside to ask and instead of oh I’m sorry here it is I was told how one of the people we’d asked had asked someone else… then there was no sugar with the coffee so we asked. When it came we then had to point out we also needed spoons to stir the coffee …
The server was nice
The food wasn’t what I expected.
It lacked flavor and the pouched egg looked for like soup to me. Looked a little under cooked
The bartender was awesome
Medium rare is my favorite place in DC and I had dinner there at least 15 times. However the quality was meh last night. They used to serve more french fries and we asked for a medium rare steak, it came as rare
Food and service were exceptional. We particularly appreciated the attention of the servers, who were always observant and on the spot, without being obtrusive.
This was our first restaurant meal in a year and a half. We could not have been more impressed.
Our only suggestion would be to keep the background music slightly less loud.
We had such a great birthday dinner here. Perfect restaurant to celebrate a fun occasion. The service was especially attentive and professional.
We loved the vibe! Everyone was happy and the food was excellent! The team worked well together and their timing was perfect. It was my daughter’s birthday and they made it so special. I really appreciate it!
Birthday with a party of four. The wine and steak was excellent
The first batch of potatoes were soggy
Otherwise, all was great
Fantastic food, fabulous service, as usual.
The food was great, service was awesome and price very reasonable. I will definitely be returning.
The food is really good and the place is cool. Is a good experience
Food was decent, brunch is made worth it by bottomless drinks of your choice
Our server was very kind but the overall ambiance of the restaurant left something to desire as it felt a little too dark / cramped with the music being a little too loud to really hear the person a couple seats down from you
Great food for the price, nice simple menu. Portions are pretty good for the main courses, not too heavy and not too light. The deserts are gigantic, definitely meant to be shared. Quick and efficient service. Drinks were pretty strong too. Definitely a nice place for a date night or occasional outing
The food and service could not have been better. Everything was perfect - and with free second helpings! The only problem was the noise level of the music; it was difficult to carry on a conversation. So I recommend eating outdoors.
Rude waitress, loud music
Never disappoints! We love this place!
Wow! This spot is amazing. The service is the friendliest and most thorough. Everything comes out delicious and in a jiffy! My bottomless screwdriver really was bottomless. I would have a new drink before my other one was even finished! Now that’s what I call service. Lovely outdoor spot. The steak & eggs are to die for (and the secret sauce!!) Highly recommend!!
Awesome outdoor seating, great waiter, food was delightful!
Server was not very attentive and we had to ask several times to remind her. Music was loud and difficult to talk over.
Absolutely horrible. We had to beg for a glass of water, only got one mimosa despite being “bottomless” and the food was cold from having sit out too long (took 45 mins between courses and that’s a long time without any drinks!). Plus, they didn’t let us order dessert even though we told them it was a birthday celebration. They were severely understaffed but also overbooked - DC is only supposed to be at 50% but every table was taken.
Great food & breakfast deal but service was exceptionally slow & we didn’t get seated until 25 minutes after our reservation time
Great place for “get away” dinner alone, and the best place to celebrate birthday with friends!
When we sat down here, having been away from DC for nearly a year, we felt like we’d come back home to a friendly face. Never a bad meal at Medium Rare. It was a perfect day to enjoy their outdoor seating, and our waitperson Kasey was a delight. I look forward to returning when we get back to town next; after all, I still have some French pickup lines to learn from the recordings in the rest rooms.
I enjoyed sitting on the added outdoor seating area. However my latest experience made me feel the restaurant was not staffed to support the added outdoor and indoor tables.
Fabulous food, friendly and attentive staff, a family favorite.
As always, excellent employees were professional, kind, humorous. Nice outdoor seating at this Cleveland Park location. Hopefully this expanded area can stay post-pandemic.
I love Medium Rare. It's easy, delicious, the service is great, and they have lots of comfortable outdoor seating. Only downside is the cost. For two people, it's easily $100.
Amazing, delicious food!
We had reservations for Mother’s Day brunch. It was busy but the staff did a great job in the chaos and managed a lack of coffee cups well. The food was smaller portions for something called a “brunch” but everyone seems satisfied enough. Learning French phrases over the speaker while in the restroom was fun.
Great customer service. Really good steaks.
Great service! Great food! Great atmosphere! Most definitely 10/10
Had an awesome brunch!
The food and service was great, but I wish the music was not as loud especially with the restaurant being as small and cramped as it was (Cleveland Park location).
