We took advantage of the Sunday special and had the combination filet mignon/lobster for 2. The service was excellent. The waiter was attentive, but not intrusive.
The food is delicious.
Definitely worth the money.

This place is very good. The ambiance is outstanding, a very nice place to come for happy hour, a great bar scene, just phenomenal drinks too. It is VERY EXPENSIVE for what you get. And I am not someone who minds spending generously on food - I am known for going to places that cost over $1000 per person for a meal - but in order to spend the money the food has to be impeccable and although the food here is very good, it is not incredible or memorable as the price is. It is very good for business diners and even a couple's night out. The sushi is good, but very filling (the rice seems to expand in your stomach). It is very similar to Insignia, though for some reason the dishes I have had at Insignia are actually better than at Rare 650. The one really annoying pet peeve I have is bathroom attendants. I do not like places that have bathroom attendants, and the most upscale places in NY, like EMP and Le Bernardin, etc, don't have that. It is a new rich mentality to have a person standing there to hand you towels, and with a face that begs for a tip. If you have to pee as often as most women you will be broke by the end of the night on tips to the bathroom lady. And if you happen to be the only one in the bathroom then now you get to have someone listening to you go...how lovely. They really should get rid of that. It is very uncomfortable.

The food was great as well as the ambiance; however, you have to go there prepared to spend lots of money! I went with a friend and it more than $300 for the two us, including drinks. Depending on your budget, this may be a great place for special occasions.

no two ways about it, great steaks, sushi and presentation, but, be prepared to pay for the privilege. Have the donuts for dessert!
