We went there with friends and sat in bar and just had appetizers and drinks and everything we had was terrific. we had calamari , brioche, salads. we recommend to everyone and espically in the spring and summer to sit on the patio where you are right in heart of town .

Great food and beverages. Very accommodating with dietary needs, and the ambiance was quite pleasant. So glad I did my homework & read the reviews here.

Great place to eat right before going to the Barter. We had the 6oz filet and the 10 oz ribeye - both were done as requested and were delicious! Sides complimented well and presentation was nice. Our server Jonathan was very pleasant and perfectly attentive - great timing on everything! Wine was good and blueberry cheesecake my wife had was... More

I have eaten at a lot of over priced restaurants, and sometimes I don't mind forking over some big bucks, butt this time the result from my investment was not worth it. The food (Tennessee prosciutto), was okay, and the ambience was very cosmopolitan, but it was somewhat dark and the staff pretentious.

I've eaten there twice and each time it was supreme! I am a vegetarian , trust me it is hard to find a good place to eat. Rain caters to both vegetarians & those who are carnivorous (which all my dining partners usually are). The last time I had the stuffed egg plant. It was fabulous. My daughter had the... More

Imagine feeling like you're dining in downtown LA right in the heart of a historic town in Virginia. Rain is a fantastic dining experience. The food and service are excellent. I had an incredible stuffed chicken with fig and brie cheese, apples, and apple cider jus. It was served with a unique combination of Anson Mills grits and broccolini. $20... More

Yum! Cool atmosphere. The older male bartender is kind of rude but the female is so attentive and friendly. Seriously, get the soup. The salads are aces, too.

My date and I arrived in historic Abingdon Virginia for a romantic Valentine's Day celebration, just as the first few flakes of what would turn out to be over a foot of snow arrived on Wednesday February 12, 2014. We had reservations at Rain for Thursday, before our show at The Barter Theater, and it was the perfect prelude to... More

I have almost never travelled to a new area, or dined at a new place, without at least reading a few reviews first; but alas, that is what I did, when we tried Rain this past November. My husband was travelling to the area on business, I liked the look of several menu items, and I decided to be adventurous.... More
