Rainbow Lodge certainly lives up to its reputation, even in the new location. The ambiance is very rustic and reminds of a hunting lodge in the Colorado mountains. Food is exquisite and the menu features creative takes on non-traditional proteins. I went for the buffalo tenderloin special and we split the crab cake appetizer (to die for). Afterwords, we finished with croissant bread pudding - YUM! Highly recommend this place for a special night out with a loved one.

I'm sorry we were so late due to unforeseeable traffic and accidents on 3 major freeways. Our dinner was amazing and my husband LOVED his birthday dinner. Thank you for great food, service and atmosphere!

Went to Rainbow Lodge for the New Year's Eve dinner - a four course meal. For the price, it wasn't anything special. While the service was very good, I felt like we were eating on an assembly line. The restaurant seem to run as many customers through that evening as quickly as possible. Having spent over $250 for 2 people for dinner, I think I'd prefer something better. Will definitely consider another restaurant for New Year's Eve next year.

Having eaten at Rainbow Lodge on numerous occasions, I found this particular night(New Year's Eve) lacking the usual quality I have come to expect from the restaurant. I realize it was a large crowd and the kitchen was hopping, but the quality of the food was certainly below their normal standards. In our party of six, the diners who selected the salad all agreed it was not tasteful and elected not to finish it. Some of the entrees were cold. This experience does not affect my interest in visiting again, however.

Rainbow Lodge is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants so we chose it to celebrate New Year's Eve. While the food was good, there was no celebratory atmosphere. We would have liked to have had the table decorated and more of a festive feel to the place. Our waiter was somewhat attentive, but was not watchful of our empty wine glasses. These are minor items, but for the $85/person charge, we expected a bit more.

Enjoyed New Year’s Eve menu! 4 courses, great portion size so you could still enjoy desert!
