Rain Tree Restaurant, Chagrin Falls

Authentic is the first word that comes to mind when describing Rain Tree. An expensive local gem, the Rain Tree has been in Chagrin Falls for what feels like an eternity; it was a favorite of my late grandmother's. She passed away in 1987.

Entering the restaurant you are first greeted with by the great double doors with their brass handles; it is worth checking out the restaurant for its decor alone. It is beautiful; with English collectible glass and ceramics adorning cabinets inside; oil paintings on the wall; curious lamps and marble tables.

The atmosphere is dark and rich, much like the food. The signature menu item is the Dublin Lawyer, a thick soup of cream and whiskey with large chunks of lobster served over rice pilaf. Also good is the grilled salmon.

In my opinion, this is the most romantic restaurant in Cleveland.
