We celebrated our 5th anniversary; my husband called and requested reservations. They sat us at a private corner table with a beautiful view out 2 windows. We enjoyed spectacular steaks and scrumptious desserts. Thank you for giving us such great memories on our special night!

Excellent food and service. They have a varied menu and I have never gotten anything I did not like. It is near the Barter Theater and a very good place to eat before a performance,

We were looking for a place after 10p (the rest of the town had pretty much closed down) and we found Rain. Sat at a high top, ordered a couple of well made mixed drinks and had a very tasty appetizer. Very friendly staff and...More
