A very nice restuarant in downtown Milford. The food was different and very good. The atmosphere was great. We sat in the bar area and the ambiance was light and airy. Our server was pleasant and cheery. This was the first time we have been in this restaurant. It is a lot bigger on the inside than it appears from... More

We have never been disappointed with anything at the Rainbow Garden. The service is attentive, the surroundings, clean and well cared for. The food fresh, beautiful and delicious as you can see my salad and my husband's was a shrimp Asian salad. The raspberry ice tea refreshing and the turtle cheesecake scrupulous. The serving are always large. Always a treat!

Absolutely love going to Rainbow Gardens for their delicious salads. I have tried other sandwiches and meals from here and they have all been delicious. I always love stopping in for a healthy option. Definitely a must try.

Lunch at Rainbow gardens was a pleasant affair. The restaurant has some really nice views of the Milford Green. The waitstaff were friendly and efficient. The interior reminds you of the seventies. It's definately starting to show its age. Probably could use some updating. The food. We had three different salads and one wrap. The salads were plentiful but not... More

Great place to hold a small gathering or group lunch. I had the meatloaf at it was delicious. Definitely not like most meatloaf as it seemed to be grilled and had some unique flavors. Solid showing though.

We went for dinner early on a Saturday night. The place was about half full. We were seated almost immediately and then waited for a waitress. After about 15 minutes one appeared, took our drink order and disappeared. Another 15 minutes went by,we got our drinks and she disappeared again. She returned in about 10 minutes, took our dinner order... More

Came in to eat on a busy holiday. Found a seat at the bar and ordered my food without delay. Most of the other local bar/restaurants nearby had lines to the door, there was no problem getting in here and getting a seat. This is more of a restaurant than bar and that was why it had more availability on... More
