First off I would like to say that this is by far the best steak place we've ever been too. It beats Meat & Wine Co for sure. Chips were crispy and delicious and steak was well cooked according to choices (medium rare) and the...More

Porterhouse medium was relatively dry, I expected more given the name of the restaurant. AC/DC, U2, The Police & Queen set a pub environment with a 5 star price. I won't dine here againMore

Description
Rare Steakhouse is one of Melbourne's finest steakhouses, now offering three locations in Melbourne's CBD. The Rare Steakhouse brand was conceived eight years ago by the crew at Squires Loft City Steakhouse(Goldie Place) - The owners recognised a need to provide the same "Squires Loft" experience to a more city-centric audience, offering an expanded menu, an intimate setting and with more attention to detail, all with the same great service and steaks already expected by Squires' guests. The idea behind Rare was to focus on offering premium quality Australian produce in the most welcoming environment and, of course,"to feed Melbourne amazing steaks". The concept was tested with the first Rare at Little Collins(Uptown) and grew to King Street(Downtown). Squires Loft Goldie Place have recently adopted the same expanded menu and atmosphere as Rare, however it was still branded under the Squires Loft name. Until now. Eight years on, Rare has now opened two locations in the city and Squires City Loft Goldie Place are having such success with the Rare offerings and atmosphere, felt it was time to bring the location into the Rare family as their Midtown location.
