Sounds nice, but CLOSED OVER TWO YEARS AGO – The restaurant may sound nice. But realize that it has been CLOSED for over TWO YEARS. Way to stay current, citysearch. Don't plan on eating here tonight before going to the concert.
beautiful place, great food, great service – i highly recommend this place! The food, service, atmosphere, EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT! The menu wasnt very extensive but the food was amazing. They made us a special desert plate for our anniversary... we are definately going to go back!
good food – Manpower has several subsidiaries including Elan Group Ltd, Jefferson Wells and Right Management.
Manpower supplies staff to multinational corporations such as IBM, Monsanto, ntl and Danaher subsidiaries.
They Don't Know What There Missing. – My wife and I had heard about Rainwater from a few are our friends, but my wife was skeptical given what she read on the recent review. WELL LET ME TELL YOU, we have found our new favorite place. From the minute we arrived you could telll that the staff, from the valet, the host to our server, right down the the managers, that they were there to make sure we had the best time. The service by our waiter was perhaps the best we have had in atlanta since we moved here from Chicago, and the food was absolutely out of the world. Great flavors, wonderful presentations, as good as any of the best restaurants we have visted in Buckhead. And to go along with the food a wine list for anyone from price to type of wine. It was a tremendous suprise to find a place with the type of experience that most of our friends think you can only have in Midtown or Buckhead right in our backyard. If you haven't given Rainwater a try, do not wait any longer. It is our new favorite restaurant.
What a Disappointment! – We made a dinner reservation one month ahead at this restaurant for our Valentine's Day celebration. We picked this place because of the reviews listed on this website. The valet service offered by the restaurant is great. We were taken to a room that was plain and had no decoration on the wall. We sat by the window and it was freezing. Despite we told the waitress to turn up the heat, there was not much help. We ordered one pre-fix dinner and two additional dishes. Thruough out the entire meal, the scallop and the crabcake were the best. However, the lobster was barely warm and very dry (there is no gravy/sauce for the lobster). In addition, the sauce on the beef was too sweet. At the end, we ordered chocolate cake w/ vanilla ice cream and the cake tasted like it had been refrigerated for days. The bill came up to $150. My husband and I did not complaint about the food to the waitress because they were super busy that night plus our waitress was very nice. Although the service was very good, we were not impressed with the food at all. We had better steak at Stoney River.
Refined restaurant elevates the Alpharetta dining scene with fine food and polished service. – The Scene
Expensively built from the ground up, the decor of this upscale restaurant is Tuscan villa with a few Cirque du Soleil flourishes. Sophisticated earth tones evoke the interiors of a tasteful, well-appointed home and strains of Sinatra waft through the dining areas. The team service is smoothly attentive.
While the menu doesn't break new ground, everything is tasty and well-executed. The cheese course includes five Sweet Grass Dairy offerings beautifully presented on marble and the plump crab cake is all lump meat with slivers of green apple and celery for texture and zing. The New York strip with blue-cheese macaroni is flavorful, but could be more tender. The monkfish served with spicy chorizo ravioli lives up to its moniker, "the poor man's lobster." Try not to topple the luscious signature raspberry staircase dessert with white and chocolate mousse or the fluffy coconut-pecan cake.
Took My Breath Away once... – ...only to have me gasp my second time back. My wife and I had one great experience here. So the owner of my company and I decided to invite some key clients for a holiday gathering. Well, I couldn't feel more disappointed. The private room was poorly appointed...no paintings, no decorations, no plants. The wait staff was excellent, the food was adequate, but the management was horrendous at customer service. When faced with a billing discrepancy, instead of trying to reach resolution, management chose to be completely unaccomodating. While they "hoped this didn't leave a bad impression," they did nothing to improve the impression, instead treating us rudely. I feel duped and embarassed since we went there on my recommendation.
Needless to say, my boss is picking the next restaurant and it won't be Rainwater. And my wife and I are left wondering about what was and might have been - but will never be - since we won't be returning either.
Best Service in Metro-Atlanta – I LOVE this place. I have been 6x's in a two year period and I have always had a delighful time. Attentive staff, great romantic ambience and good food. We are always seated by the fireplace (they track your seating), the chef made a special appetizer for me and the hubby's anniversary and surprised us with a nice desert on the house. They did the same for our b-days as well.
Great service goes a looonnnngggg way!
Buckhead without the drive – We have driven by Rainwater many times over the past few years. Most times on our way to Buckhead for a nice night out. We have always heard that it is a nice place for dinner. This past weekend we decided to give Rainwater a try. All we can say is nice is an understatement. Let's just say BRILLIANT. The food was spectacular, the wine list extraordinary, the service was the best, and an atmosphere to rival any of the restaurants in Buckhead. We used to think that the only place to go for this kind of experience was Buckhead or Midtown. Not any more! What a brilliant night!
Was very disappointed in the 9-11 Chocolate Bar. Very small and not a lot to pick from. Half of items weren't even chocolate. "fondue" chocolate was very runny and would not stick to strawberries. Hard store bought vanilla looking cookies??? Icing on cake wasn't even chocolate. Cool whip mix with a swirl of chocolate and put in small cups had hardly any taste. Would not reccommend this part of restaurant event.
