It was my husband's birthday and we wanted to celebrate it somewhere nice. We thought of somewhere near and that we haven't tried. We thought Rain 903 would be the perfect place, unfortunately, we were dismayed. I thought the place was great though, I love the ambiance, perfect for dates!
Wherever there's calamari, we try it. The one you'll see in the photo looks crispy, but don't be fooled. It doesn't have the crispiness I expected from something that was fried. Also, according to the menu, it's "Tender Calamari & Zesty Banana Peppers served with Cocktail Sauce", maybe it's the banana peppers I didn't like. I also thought it was salty, rather extra salty.
My husband ordered Filet Mignon and the presentation was really nice but I'd say our home-cooked style is better. The meat was blunt according to my husband and I tried it too to confirm. I am not sure whether they marinate it or not but I hope they do something about it because filet minon's are supposed to be tasty, right? He finished it though because it was a bit pricey. He didn't finish the mashed potato so I did it for him so as not to waste anything. I normally like food with sauces but that thing that looked like gravy, I am not a fan of it.
Crispy Calamari and Soup, Salad and Sandwich
It was great, I didn't have to use a hand sanitizer to wipe dirt off the table. It was carpeted and I saw no crumbs on the floor. Didn't see smudges on the utensils too, which was great.
They have a wide selection from the kid's menu but there's no mac and cheese. Good thing they have pizza. At least my little one can share it with me to make me feel full. If you look at their kid's menu online, I think it hasn't been updated yet,because I didn't see any pizza in there.
They have high chairs ready and they provide kid's menu with the usual activities on it but they don't have crayons.
We were treated nicely by our server and the other personnel there but I thought the food preparation was slow.
Bread. I am not sure if they're strict about it but a personnel there asked us if we wanted to have some. I thought we'll be given a loaf that was sliced, instead, we were given a basket with two pieces bread, my little one was not even included in the count. I'd say it was good and they serve it warm. I wish they gave us six.
So, having tried and tested it, are we going back? Even if I gave them a 2.5 rating, maybe, because Sheraton Hotel, where this restaurant is, is connected to the mall. Also, only if I'm not with my husband, maybe with a girlfriend if I wanted to drink. In case I'm going to order a food, I'll request that they do not make it salty and I'll ask for at least two breads per person! Maybe that will make things better.
