This places is very basic and good. If you are looking for steak and fries this is the place for you. They make a good bloody mary and on the weekend during brunch there is a fixed cost on bottomless bloody marys. The staff are great.

There's nothing like the smell of steak! Even better, the smell of steak wafting from the sidewalk as you walk toward the restaurant. I have visited the Conn Ave location previously, but caught wind of the Eastern Market location. We had already eaten dinner, but a friend told us to venture to MR for a delicious dessert. Who doesn't love warm apple pie and ice cream on a Sunday? That's exactly what my party ordered. Delicious and flaky apple pie with vanilla bean ice cream, accompanied by a MASSIVE sundae that was chock full of fudge, sprinkles, chocolate rice krispies, and vanilla bean ice cream. We opted for no walnuts. We sat at the bar, where the staff was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely return to this location!

If you're near Capitol Hill or in Cleveland Park craving steak frites, but would rather not go to Le Diplomate or Bistro Au Coin, give Medium Rare a try. This place is great! Chill, low-key, casual, but delicious and a great deal! The menu is simple: delicious bread, salad, steak, frites, and sauce. That's it. All executed perfectly at prix fixe. I can't wait to try their brunch with bottomless Bloody Marys and Mimosas! I'm sure it'll be just as good as their dinner offering.

If you have been meandering around all day sightseeing or just want to ensure a spectacular and low key dinner - this is the spot. Food and service are superb. As long as you are in the mood for steak - then you don’t have to think further. Have been here two years in a row and everything was fabulous both time.
