We first visited Rain two or three years ago and we raved about the experience. But then we discovered Figaredo's two autumns ago and fell it love with it. Unfortunately, that restaurant has now closed, and so we returned to Rain on our theatre visit this past weekend. We found the décor has improved considerably, but almost everything we loved...

We did not like the menu so we choose items we really did not care for. The ambience was lacking, more like a dinner rather than a upscale restaurant. Service was okay and we were served in a reasonable time. This was our 2nd visit and nothing changed. Not a bad restaurant , just not for us.

We popped in at the recommendation of a friend. They had the fried pickle chips (great with the full dip!), one friend tried the chicken salad sandwich (the salad all fell out of the croissant with each bite but was yummy), and the other had the Plumb Burger (he said is was good). The lunch crowd consisted of four tables.... More

Great farm to table restaurant. The specials are excellent and the entire menu offers great choices. The baked oysters appetizer was a special that really exceeded our expectations. Desserts are also spectacular. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

I have dined here on multiple business outings with my coworkers, and each time I go I find new reasons to not enjoy my visit. There is a sense of high-class about this restaurant that rubs me the wrong way, and it's mostly due to the odor of slight mildew that is always present on hot and cold days. (Maybe... More

I had the filet mignon and it was delicious. Everyone in the party enjoyed their meal. Lot's of variety on the menu. However, restaurant was a bit noisy.

Rain wasn't our first choice for our group of 10 women but we had trouble getting into the restaurant we had planned on when we visited Abingdon so we called Rain and they very graciously accommodated our large party. They had a table ready for us when we arrived even though they don't take reservations. Most of the group very... More
