Rare Steakhouse in Madison, Wisconsin is the concept of owners Jack and Julie Sosnowski, who believe that elegant, uncommon service combined with the best ingredients in the world, does not have to be a cold, arm-length affair. After an exhaustive tour of the best steakhouses in the United States, they decided that Madison, Wisconsin deserved its own world-class venue for USDA Prime steaks. They proudly serve Allen Brothers steak which is among the top 2% of all beef served in the world. Inside of Rare Steakhouse, you'll find an ambience like none other, a classic setting with a rich mahogany interior, deep red booths, stamped tin ceilings with chandeliers. We invite you to enjoy the Chef's Table or The Library for your private dining or events. Our events coordinator, Sarahjane, will work with you to customize your event just the way you envision it. Please visit our website or call us at (608) 204-9000 to make your reservation and let us know how we can make your visit memorable. www.RareOnTheSquare.com
