What a selection of steaks. A bit tough for a New Zealander when we are used to excellent beef regardless, so to be presented with choices like “grain fed”, “pasture fed”, GFO, no one knows what the “O” stands for anyway. Very nice staff, restaurant...More

We ate here based on its TA reviews. It was superb. My eye fillet was perfectly cooked, perfectly flavoured, perfect. I'm glad I don't live closer as I would spend a fortune eating here. I cannot recommend the Rare Steakhouse Uptown highly enoughMore

For whatever reason, Melbourne lacks good steak restaurants and steakhouses. Rare on King is good on all levels, but it misses out on being special. So no faults but no fireworks.More
