Love this place...They have still got it

I lived in this town 20 years ago and loved this restaurant then .... And they still deserve it! It is an upscale (waiters in tux, clientele dressy casual) Chinese restaurant. Full bar and very good wine list. Everything is al a cart, and not cheap, but What Flavors! My wife and I believe that... read more

Our meal was excellent, but as other reviewers have said, the prices are upscale too. The service was friendly and the waiter respectful, but expect it to take the better part of the evening - although when I'm paying more, I expect not to be rushed. We shared our whole meal among the 4 of us, ordering 4 different entrees... More

Service, ambience, quality of food , and sheer dining pleasure creates a delightful place to enjoy a remarkable dining experience. Grouper was their chef's special ( as well as a rack of lamb). The grouper was superbly cooked, and, it was really grouper!! I... More

Do not expect to pay the usual Chinese Restaurant menu prices, this is at the top of the list in cost however well worth the cost. Always a pleasant dinning experience. A special occasion type to...

We found this restaurant on trip advisor. The reviews were so good we had to come. It certainly did not disappoint. The food quality is exceptional. Yes it may be expensive but there is a huge difference between expensive and over priced and this is certainly not the latter. It is a fine dining experience that if you don't get,... More

I think your pretty much paying for the ambiance of the place, as the food wasn't all that for the price they charged you. I've been to a few restaurant in New York that was food was much, much better than here and not as expensive. Maybe this place has such great review because there's not a lot of other... More

It is very hard to find a good Chinese Restaurant in this area. After vacationing in the area for the last three years, we decided to try Rainbow Palace. It's the best decision we made. Very nice inside, so dress up a little, service is excellent, and food was some of the best Chinese I have ever had! Not an... More
