Overall excellent but but the only negative is that we prefer to bring our own wine but there’s no corkage.

After reading so many five star reviews we really looked forward to our visit. Boy we’re we disappointed. First we were seated in the main dining room and the noise level was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Thankfully the host was able to move us to another room which was better than the first. So we started with the Wan Ton soup. Two large bowls came out with about 1/4 filled. The two rubber won tons were barely covered with broth. . Really ridiculous not to add a little broth so as not to look like a rip off. Next one small spring roll came out ridiculously priced at $7. Next the two entrees came out. The orange beef was COLD. We wouldn’t have said anything because we don’t like to send things back, but the waiter asked… and so I let him know one entree was hot and the other cold. He graciously offered to bring out another. The second was HOT, but so tough we couldn’t eat it. Rice portion was so small. Boy, what a disappointment. We quickly cancelled our reservation we had made for Christmas. As if we threw our money out the window. Even the flowers at each table were brown and dying. Maybe it was an off night, but we will never step foot in there again. We work too hard for our money. Over $118 wasted.

Love Rainbow Palace - the food is reliably delicious and the service exceptional. This was my first visit post-Covid and we were not disappointed. We celebrated my niece’s past two birthdays. We did have a very loud table next to us, so conversation at our table was difficult this time. That can happen anyplace. I did notice their second room was completely empty. Perhaps they can’t staff the other room currently.? It would have been nice if the large noisy group had been seated in there. Will definitely return.

The menu was very interesting. The service was excellent. Very experienced service as a matter of fact. You can tell everyone has been there quite a long time. With that consider the decor was reasonably fresh and the table was relatively private. We had a large group we were nine people but everybody’s food was excellent. The only uniform complaints we heard were about the prices. For the size portions the pricing felt very high. The wine I had by the glass was excellent and not particularly expensive. The only thing that seemed off about the food was the dessert tray. They all looked very good but none of them seemed like the right desserts to follow a Chinese banquet style meal.

This is not a real Chinese restaurant. It uses some Chinese dishes but cooks and embellishes them with non Chinese cuisine. An example is the dish I had : crispy duck in Grand Marnier suace.

Delicious! Food served professionally. Good portion size and nice selections. Carry out available at a lower price but then you will be missing the white table cloth ambiance. This is not what you should cut out of your budget.
