We waited an hour and a half to get in. Then we waited 30 minutes after we ordered. The price was around $20 per entree and the portions were small! 6 small shrimp and a tiny side of rice. NOT worth the $.

The atmosphere is great, especially for kids. However the food is average and not worth the price in my opinion. The staff is polite, but they are often very busy so it can be hard to get their attention. If you plan to eat here...More

Rainforest Cafe is always a highlight as there are so few locations in the U.S. It is really a treat when we come to Mall of America. It is far better to have a reservation in advance than to sit waiting for a table (any...More

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

I don't believe they take reservations, but we only had about a 15 minute wait on a Friday at noon. The searing capacity was bigger than I thought it would be.
