We went with 4 kids (ages 6-14). They enjoyed the experience part of the restaurant but everyone in our party of seven was disappointed in their food. It can be best classified as "meh." If your kids will LOVE it, pay the high prices for subpar food and know you're doing it for the experience. However, there are so many... More

Went with colleagues after a meeting. I ordered the natural burger which is a vegetarian choice. It was really great and I recommend to anyone trying to be healthy but wanting that sandwich

Went to Rain Forest Cafe with my son and friends. The food was bland and definitely not worth the high prices. Good atmosphere and family friendly, though. The restaurant was not busy or rushed but yet the food took ages to come out and our waitress seemed to disappear. I had to request more water and then the bill myself... More

Terrible customer service, food was cold and after complaining I had to wait another 20 minutes for my meal which came on a hot plate but still only warm. Waitress disappeared, no one checked on our meals and we had to ask for new drinks. The Waitress offered juice for my friends son, but never brought it. The atmosphere is... More

I've been hear a couple of times, the food is fine, not really a "wow" factor. The storms and lighting are kinda fun, can be really busy at times, but I guess that;s a good thing. If you get a chance give it a try definitely interesting. Service is good, I'd give the restaurant a 7 out of 10, if... More

We're always a little skeptical when we here someplace has a Gluten Free menu, but nothing is marked on the menu; especially chain restaurants. But we received fantastic service at the Rainforest Cafe' in the Mall of America! My wife mentioned, right away when we sat down, that she has Celiac disease, and asked if the server if he could...

We came here as a treat to take my toddler too. She absolutely loved it from start to finish. She loved the animals, the storm and just the environment in general. We ordered a kids meal and she loved it. We also ordered the elephant bottle and she loved it, it will be a great memento to take home. The... More

Took my 7 yr old grandson to Rainforest Cafe at MOA. He loved the storm and thunder and lightning. All the animals caught his attention. Didn't the rainforest supposed to have rain? I thought I remembered rain in my previous cafe in Orlando. Food was good but a bit pricey for the amount you receive. $10 for a souvenir frog... More

Had not been for a while, so was surprised to see it's been relocated upstairs at MOA. Same crazy creature fun for kids, but stop by well before you want to eat to get your name on the list or you'll be waiting a while to get in.

My daughter likes the animals and it is a really fun place for kids. That being said, the food was real average- I had a wrap sandwich and she had a kids meal that was truly just a school lunch (pic attached). You pay for the atmosphere, which kids will enjoy, but I would not come here on my own... More
