Loved it. Next table had a toddler with great pair of lungs that screamed so loudly. Felt bad for the parents who had to take him home. Apart from hearing him scram every so often We had a ton of fun. Our waitress was funny and made us all feel special. This is a great place for families to bring their kids. Even the screamers. Lol. The food is great. The volcano desert is a must have. The moving jungle animals are fun to watch snd the gift shop has something for everyone. Spent slot there slow. Can’t wait to travel back to N J and come back to Rainforest cafe

When I made reservations online and I put that it was for a birthday. Nothing was done for it though. That's my one disappointment.

they sat us all the way in the back so our view could have been better.. it was not that crowded so I didnt understand. The waiting liked to chit chat to much and was slow getting out our check. I usually love coming there but this was not my best experience.

Great for kids. Burger and fries were were good. It enough vegetarian options. Staff was very accommodating in moving us to a different table at our request because our 2-year old was afraid of the elephants. Service was slow even though they weren’t busy. We will come again with children. Fun for the little ones.

I took my 9 yr old granddaughter for her birthday and we really enjoyed ourselves. The food was very fresh and delicious. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu, very pleasant and very professional. I can't wait for the next opportunity to drive 60 miles just to visit this lovely Cafe. I will be bringing my friends for a Ladies Night out and the 60 miles will be well worth driving to get to the Rainforest Cafe.

We had a reservation for two people for 8pm and even though there were obvious open tables, we were not seated for at least 15 minutes. The server, although very friendly and polite, was super slow to take even our drink orders. It took at least 30 minutes for our food to come out after we ordered it. At this hour of the night, it seemed like crowd was definitely thinning out so not sure why the long wait for everything. It was obvious that they were really limiting number of people in the restaurant, so I don't think that was the issue. I would definitely not recommend if you are under any kind of time constraints like trying to get to a nearby concert or show.

Prices are really inflated for some items. The tropical Getaway cocktail was very good and came with a glass to take home for $15 so I felt that was a fair price. Shrimp tacos and chicken tenders were both really good as well.

The hostess was great. She was very attentive to everyone trying to get everyone seated for dinner. Waiter was okay, he did his job and served our food but didn't show any care for my family and why we were there (birthday dinner). The atmosphere of the restaurant has changed over the last 3-4 years that we have been coming. Not the same Rain Forest Cafe that my family has enjoyed over the last 15 or so years.

Made reservations because we have been turned away twice on other occasions. Overheard host telling other party that they would be seated even without a reservations so that was annoying in itself. Were seated 10 mins after our reservation time- someone came to get our drink order 20 MIN after that--mediocre food, drinks were strong at least. way too expensive. we had to wait around for someone to come to the register so we could buy at the gift shop- asked 2 different employees who kept playing cash register tag- no one wanted to help us! will not be going back on my own accord unless my kids beg which they wont because the food made their tummies hurt

Our waiter was very accommodating. It took awhile to get our food and with small children, somewhat trying. The atmosphere was not as good as it once was, given the circumstances of this past year and a half along with staff shortages, it's understandable.

Had a reservation for 1:30 but still had to wait about 15 minutes. Hostess and reception area needed some more assistance it seemed.
Waiter made error on our bill and service was kind of slow. Very warm in restaurant. Not sure if ac was fully working.

I went for my girlfriend’s birthday and we made a reservation a couple of weeks in advance. We got there and waited half an hour for our table when walk-ins got seated before us. Then we ordered 2 piña colada’s and they were very watery. We ordered our entrees, my girlfriend got a pasta, chicken and broccoli dish that had the option of Alfredo or pesto and she asked for pesto. It came out with no pesto, uncooked broccoli and cold pasta. I got the beyond burger and which was okay but for the price, I should have gotten a little more french fries for my side. They also forgot the sauce that was supposed to go on the burger so I had to ask for it separately. The waiter was nice and understanding and wound up comping the pasta dish. Overall an okay-ish experience, but very disappointed when it came to food, portion and price.

This was a birthday lunch for our 8 year old daughter. The service from Jonnie was exceptional and he went above and beyond to celebrate her birthday. The manager was helpful in resolving the open table check in email that I received and was attentive and friendly. Great staff, fun atmosphere, amazing drinks for adults and kids.

Had reservations was seated within 5 minutes. Service for food and drinks was super slow. Our server was very nice and apologized for the slow service. They explained servers are pulling multiple duties. We were there 2 hours . Was disappointed after spending 20 minutes with the beverage menu sorting out animal kids cup and beverage each child wanted our server informed us no kids cups were available, they had light up cups but no lids, and ultimately when the kids were served drinks they were out of disposable children’s cups they got adult sized cups with a warning the kids didn’t fit well. The food itself was quite good. But again a long wait after eating to get to go boxes and the check. Overall a fun time for the kids but dissatisfied that so many kid items were not available on the menu.
