Love their happy hour. But this time went later and had the burger, and sushi and pot stickers for the first time. The burger was very good.

Poor selection of sakes by the glass (out of everything on the list) and the house sake was watered down and undrinkable. Tried to order appetizers but they were out of the ones we wanted. Fruit flies at the table. Sushi was edible, at best. Won't be going or recommending this place to anyone. Not a huge mystery as to... More

I dined here with a business associate as he was staying at The Grand Hotel. While the service was good, the quality of the food and coffee was poor. The place was empty at 7:00 am. There are much better breakfast venues in Downtown Minneapolis.

When we first walked in, it didn't look as nice as I expected (especially compared to the rest of the hotel, which is gorgeous.) The decor was a little run down and it just didn't look right. The staff was friendly, however, and the food was absolutely amazing. I got the salmon and it was the best I've ever had.... More

We decided to try Rare Steak & Sushi during our stay in Minneapolis. Wrong decision. we expected (based on the prices and the hotel experience so far) that we would be at a steakhouse environment like we are used to at home in Chicago. We should have known better from the "grab your own menu and seat yourself at 7pm... More

We had the blackened turkey burger, beef burger, Chicken pesto sand which, fried plantain chips, calamari bites, fries and a side salad. Everything was wonderful. The atmosphere was great. I plan to go again.

Nice menu including sushi and some other favorites. Service is "lumpy" -- sometimes great, sometimes challenging as is often the case in hotel restaurants.

We used Groupon to explore... Have had some great experiences. Located on the second floor of the GRAND Hotel Minneapolis - not to be confused with the Hotel Minneapolis. (which we did... Also a great property.) Start off with a phenom Villa Antinori Toscana 2011... Be still my heart! Then some carpaccio. Omg... Amazingly delicious - garnished with capers and... More

I bought a Groupon to Rare while visiting Minneapolis. It was the best money I spent while I was there. I started with a perfect patron margarita and let me just say that's it's the best margarita I've ever had. I ordered the beef tataki room, 9.5 roll and Mexican roll. I had never heard of sushi made with raw... More
