Our food was good, good kid choices, large servings. fun atmosphere don't go here in a hurry, make sure you allow plenty of time, as it can take awhile for the whole experience. At least if there is wait time inbetween ordering, food arriving, there is plenty to walk around & explore.

This restaurant is truly unique, and so is the location. The food is delish. Portions are huge, on the pasta dishes.

Food is overpriced and only average quality. The good thing is the dining experience. Lots of fun especially for the little ones Would I go again ....probably not but worth going at least once.

We went there with our family. We had a diner's card so we did not have to wait in the line. We loved that there were so many things to look at. The animals made noise and moved a bit. We didn't have high hopes for the food as this is a theme restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised. All... More

I had been to the rainforest cafe a few times when I was younger, so I thought it would be a good idea to have dinner there with my girlfriend. I was wrong. Be prepared to wait if you don't already have a reservation. The atmosphere is cool and all but if you are a couple and get seated next... More

Having been in other Rainforest locations in the U.S., Mexico and Canada, I expected this one to be similar if not better than the others. I was wrong, very wrong actually. We found most of the dishes to be tasteless, not up to what one would expect of a Rainforest Cafe. Our waiter was always rude and unhelpful, never a... More

We went on a Saturday night, and placed our table request at approximately 5:00 pm. We had about a 45 min wait from the time we signed in and we sat down. When we arrived at the hostess stand (the purple elephant), the people signing in had a three hour wait. The staff was wonderful. Our server was Nick and... More
