Rainbow Gardens overlooks the Milford Green and in the summer there is seating on the Victorian porch which is pleasant. In the winter, you can sit by the front window and overlook the Christmas lights on the Green, if you do not mind being in the same area as the bar. The larger dining area is in the back. The...

I was in town for the night and the desk clerk told me this was her favorite restaurant in Milford. I sat at the bar and Eron the bartender was handling the food as well as the drinks for the whole bar. She did a great job. The ceasar salad was served cold, which is the way I liked it.... More

This is a cute little restaurant in the downtown area which is very beautiful in itself, with a very original menu and great food.

As this was not my first visit to Rainbow Gardens, I can say whether it is a visit for dinner or just appetizers and wine with a good friend in the bar, the food, atmosphere and staff are always wonderful. With so many great restaurants in Milford, Rainbow Gardens is tops on my list.

My sister's and I (seven out of ten)went out to dinner to celebrate one of my sister's selling of her home and moving to Maine for her retirement. I had never heard of it before and thought it was a Chinese restaurant by the name. One of my sister's told me I was crazy, I thought no I think it's... More

I brought my Mother-in-law to Rainbow Gardens for lunch because I had heard good things about it, I was not disappointed. The food was delicious and the place was lovely. So many interesting decorations. The Zucchini Bread was wonderful. We will go there again, what a nice place.

Great restaurant and bar in old Milford. Plenty of parking in back and nearby. Call ahead for reservation. I had the "Heaven and Earth" which is a grilled chicken and angel hair pasta with a stroganoff sauce. Make sure you order a " dark and stormy" at the bar.

Had dinner there for the first time tonight. My girlfriend and I were very disappointed. I ordered a New York strip steak and French Onion soup for an appetizer. The steak was tasteless and the French Onion soup tasted like someone poured some beef bouillon over some bread and onions. Sprinkle some cheese on top and pass it off as... More

My mother and I had a very enjoyable dinner at Rainbow Gardens two weeks ago for the first time. The restaurant has a front room (with a bar) and a back room. Tables are spaced nicely apart, and the noise level was quite manageable. Dress is somewhat casual. The menu featured a number of very interesting cocktails that were also... More
