I will start with the positives. The service and attention to our table was outstanding. The decor was upscale and our waiter was excellent. Now the not so good. I ate here a number of times, many years ago. I thought it was an excellent high end Chinese Restaurant. We had high hopes,b ut they were dashed rather quickly. The... More

Excellent service from Freddy. The crispy steak is wonderful. The shrimp Szechuan was very good but next time we'll ask for it hot, not medium spiced! There will be a next time. The venue is immaculate though traditional. A Fort Lauderdale institution that must be experienced.

My wife & I ate there this evening, first time we have eaten at the Rainbow Palace, great first Time experience, will definitely go back. Upscale restaurant, table service service excellent, staff had attention to detail, pricey for Chinese food, but not your regular Chinese type of restaurant, extensive wine menu. It's a dining experience.

The menu is small and pricy. We can't afford anything on the wine list. But I have to admit it is worth it to go here at least once every 6 months for special occasions. If you are looking to be taken care of by professional waiters in tuxedos, this is your place. And I doubt the rent their outfits... More

Loved everything about Rainbow Palace--the greeting at the door, the service, the drinks and, of course, the food! Wonderfully prepared and professionally served. I cannot wait to go back the next time I am in the area. Thanks for a great time!

This restaurant has consistently delicious food prepared to perfection. BUT the lunch we recently had there was a disaster. Over-sauced, over-salted. Can't believe it's the same kitchen.

One of the best dinners I have had in a long time. Very elegant, service was excellent. Very quiet and easy to to carry on a conversation. Well worth the price, which was not that expensive considering the scrumptious meal.

The food was by far the best Chinese I have ever had. It is expensive but worth the value. Service was great. I will be back next time I am in town.

The place is very fancy and service is very good, the waiters are well dressed and seems to be an upscale Chinese restaurante. Food is very good, albeit a bit expensive, but still good, we had a good dinner, but wish it was not so expensive.

Delicious, elegant, unusual, finest ingredients (tapioca flour?)-- a go-to restaurant for a special occasion. Be prepared for sticker shock. Baby lamb chops coated in water chestnut flour $62. Standard dinner for two with no appetizer, drinks, or dessert easily $100. Fabulous side veggies or fried rice are all $19 extra. But so delicious, it's worth saving up. Most delicious food... More
