Overall the steaks were delicious, atmosphere was lively and energetic while remaining classy. We sat away from the bar which was near all the energy and towards the back it was more of a calm dining experience.

Sometimes the cuts of meat are hard to visualize reading off a menu so they bring out a tray of raw cuts for you to chose from which was both interesting and very nice to see.

Service was impressive.

Extremely busy Saturday night; our 8:30 reservation for four - we did not get seated until 9pm.
We have been regulars at Rare for the past 8 yrs or so - the food is always consistent but the wait time was not good and we seem to have not been the only patrons having to wait for their reservation. It as if they just accepted or Opentable did without updating the seating and times.

Love this place!! Quality of food is phenomenal, service is great. Only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is just because it is pretty noisy. But still, great place of which I would and have been recommending to everyone!

Let’s start by saying I never write reviews, good bad or indifferent, but I must say our dinner at Rare was excellent.
Appetizers of burrata and peppers and the Sicilian eggplant Parm were very good. We then had the porterhouse for 2 that was amazing! Probably the best piece of meat we’ve had in NJ in a while. Sides of cream spinach and whipped potatoes didn’t disappoint. Dessert was coconut cake that also was very good. Service was also very attentive. We will definitely be back!

Seafood platter was over cooked and not worth the money. The blue cheese and portabello “crust” wasn’t a crust, it was a sauce and overpowered the steak. However, the steak itself was cooked to perfection and was outrageous.

I had the sirloin steak medium rare and it was cooked to perfection, juicy and delicious.
My friend had fish and he said it was very good.
the only criticism I have is the noise level.. It is extremely noisy there and you have to shout to hear everyone. I wish they would do something about that.

My husband really enjoyed his ribeye both Saturday night and (cold) on Sunday. My Shrimp was OK - however, the service had an annoying attitude quality; and, the hostess gave us an inferior table (we had a reservation.)

Our server gave us a generous portion of the Oreo cheesecake, my daughter was being dramatic and wanted 2 slices. That made my day, plus it was my birthday and so he gave me a candle and a scoop of ice cream :) oh the little things! I’ve been going to Rare for years, I’m always happy. Food is delicious and portions are great . Service is always top notch !

This was our first time at rare the steak House ...The food and service was excellent but found it to be very pricey... We were two couples and the bill came to over $200 per couple . Not a place that I would frequent very often but definitely would go back on special occasions.. I would recommend this restaurant

I have enjoyed a good steak many times at Rare, and you have never let me down. Your staff is wonderful and your food is great. I think Rare has the best steak for the best value of any restaurant around.
