Great Atmosphere and Food – I have been here about half a dozen times since it opened a little more than a year ago. Mostly I have ordered sushi. I am not very adventurous with sushi, but their rolls are unique and fresh. Their lobster and crab rolls are the best I have had in Atlanta. The menu of other items is extensive.
The atmosphere is hip. Snappy casual comes to mind. Mostly under 40 crowd. It's gets a fair amount of the after movie crowd from the Tara theater, which is just next door. It's in the former South of France space, but the atmosphere is nothing like that old tired place. It has a space for large groups as well.
The service is good and the prices very competitive.
Great Asian/Thai Food! – My guests and I really enjoyed the food at Rain. The staff was very friendly and overall a very pleasant experience.
Editorial Review by Jonathan Baker – An elegant little spot next to the Tara serving up sushi and Thai fusion--a prime place and menu for after-movie eats.
Green Tea Creme Brulee. What else can i say!!?? – The chicken and shrimp dumplings were a delightful must try appetizer. The restaurant has a trendy and modern style with eclectic lighting. The staff was superb as they helped me pick a delicious line up from the spicy seafood platter to the sushi. The food display was refreshing to the eye. Unique shaped plates and tasty sauces added appeal. You always appreciate the hot towels before dinner, the food arrived promptly and the table was cleared nicely after each dish. Keep in mind, after viewing a show at the theater next door you must stop here! You won?t have to hunt for parking in this shopping center.
Long-standing Cheshire Bridge restaurant offers comfortable French favorites. – In Short
Classic French cafe decor mixes with grandmotherly dowdiness behind an aluminum strip mall facade. Known as much for its romantic fireplace as its comparative bargains, this popular cafe draws both doe-eyed couples and regulars. An excellent starter of mussels--sauteed with garlic, white wine and cream--is fresh and savory. Trout Francese is flaky and lightly breaded with a lemony, buttery sauce.
Très bien! – I went with a large group of people for lunch. My main course was very good. I ordered the Chicken Chasseur. I was able to try many different French Appetizers.. but a lady who was with us said that she did not like the house soup, it just tasted very bland. My dessert although was nothing to brag about.
Avoid the kids' table. – My wife and I reserved a table to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Despite our early arrival, we were seated in a room behind the main dining room (the host indicated that a table wasn't available in the main room). In my opinion, this small back-room had the ambiance of an unfinished basement. I sat facing a sterile, colorless wall and my wife faced a table set for a large party. The room lighting seemed incadescent, and the hideous lineoleum-like flooring stood out. From our table, we could peer into the candle-lit dining room with live music and a fireplace; the romantic atmosphere we heard so much about and came to enjoy. Instead, we felt as if we'd been seated at the kids' table and half expected to be given a menu with a choice of hamburger or chicken fingers. Humiliated, we didn't stick around to find out.
Very Disappointed, Will never go back – Went there for Valentine's Day Dinner. The atmosphere was ok, the serving staff was not too friendly. Full menu was not offered, only a reduced version. The Escorgat appetizer was probably the only thing we enjoyed. My wife ordered the lamb rack, it was way over cooked and very tough. Crowded and very uncomfortable. Certainly not romantic and not worth the $100+ we spent. Would have got better food at Ruby Tuesday. Will never go back.
Romantic French restaurant – Went with my gf...got a table right by the fireplace...best seat in the house. I just got house red, I forgot to get the name of the wine, but it was excellent...velvety and smooth. We had the filet mignon and a chicken dish, which were good. The fireplace and the ambience were the highlights.
Quaint and Cozy – Loved the ambience of this cozy and quaint restaurant. Had a very comfortable feel to it, at the same time giving you the atmosphere that's perfect for that romantic dinner. My husband had the jumbo shrimp cocktail appetizer, duck with orange sauce and ice cream (he just wanted something sweet after the meal). I had the puff pastry with ground veal and pork, chicken stuffed with goat cheese and spinach and vanilla creme brulee. Liked the puff pastry, hubby thought shrimp cocktail was tasteless, we both enjoyed our entrees but were equally disappointed with the dessert. I was expecting so much more from a French restaurant! The ice cream was probably something bought from the grocery store and my creme brulee was very bland. The service wasn't anything exceptional. I'd rate the restaurant better if I'd never tried the dessert but being a sweet tooth, I left feeling very cheated.
