“The cow boy ribeye steak !”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

I stay at the hilton fashion district. It is a rainy Saturday and I want to dine in a place close to my hotel. I tried this restaurant after reviewing the comments in the tripadvisor. It is a delight. The 22oz cowboy steak is wonderful. The spinach risotto (sides) is so so good. The cheese is very rich. The mushroom sauce is lovely. I ordered medium but it turned out to be rather raw; fortunately the iron plate is hot and I seared it immediately. I ordered a Greek salad as well. With the 22oz steak, it is enough for two people. The cocktail is strong. It KO my wife! The server, Mary, is nice. She is very good. A good evening here in the Rare. I will come again.

“Good Modern Burger Place”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

There is something for everyone here. Good quality food, and awesome fries. Good for kids (downstairs) or for a date (upstairs/bar area). Management and staff went above and beyond.

“Great drinks and even better burgers.”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

There are two Rare burger restaurants in NYC...both are excellent. Try the tower of fries...comes with three types of fries and lots of sauces. This place isn't the cheapest but you get what you pay for.

Although the food took awhile to come out, it was incredibly good. Their drinks are also excellent (unique!). I was in a hurry, regrettably, but would have liked to stay longer.

“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We came here for lunch. The service was great everyone was very attentive and pleasant.
We enjoyed talking to our waiter and the manager on duty while we were waiting for our food. They were both very nice.
The food was very good. We ordered a few apps and drinks and they were all great. I would definitely go back again
