    Celebrated my Granddaughter’s 7th Birthday tonight at Rainforest Cafe. So Bittersweet because we celebrated her Dad’s Birthday at Rainforest also. Our service was great, food was good and our Granddaughters smile was from ear to ear. My only complaint was the restrooms. They were dirty and in need of attention.

    Our server was completely unreachable almost the entire time. Over the entire hour we waited between ordering to actually receiving our food, we saw him 2 times, and managed to catch his attention one of those times. The kiddos were getting extremely impatient as they were so hungry. He said he would go check on our food…only to come back about 10 minutes later to tell me that our food would probably be another 10-15 minutes, I asked him if he had fruit or anything already ready that could be brought to the kids..so he went and got grapes and oranges. The littles(who LOVE) grapes spewed them out after eagerly going after them, and said they burned their tongues. We tried them and sure enough-there was a bizarre chemical taste to their grapes. I assume some sort of preservative but it genuinely was nasty. Once our food finally came, it was by far sub par. Fish was lukewarm, fries were gross, steak was over done. This was such a sad experience for such a “destination” or “exciting” outing.

    Steak was horrible, asked for a medium got well done extremely tuff and horrible cut of steak. Waiters were nowhere to be found. Condiments were not on the table and you had to ask for ketchup salt and pepper. Waitress was trying to talk to one of the managers on shift and he walked away from her as she was talking and she asked him not to walk way from her. Manger seemed like he is a very toxic person on the way he walked around. Prices were way over priced for this food. Very disappointed.

    With reservation made in advance we had to wait for 25 min to get our sits. Our server (a lady) forgot about us completely after we ordered drinks. We had to wait for 25 min again until a manager saw us sitting at the empty table

    We went for my granddaughter's 4th birthday. Our server was very attentive. The food was better than anticipated but overpriced. You're paying for the ambiance and experiencing the rain forest/ jungle theme that surrounds you. Was glad we did it!

    Really really bad. Our kids got their food 30 minutes before they brought out the adult food (both 10 minutes apart). The food was terrible. The service was really poor. We were there for our daughter's birthday (which I indicated) and heard them singing to everyone else but they acted unwilling to sing to her. Overall really disappointing experience for her birthday.

    Our server was fantastic. The check in process is awful. The staff there I suppose is used to patrons angry with them because they were just not friendly. There should be signs to tell you where to go to check in. ALWAYS make a reservation. The kids loved it! I mean, loved it! The food is okay. Applebees level of quality. Nothing to write home about. Good amount of option. I heard the club sandwich was good from another person there

    We went on a Thursday evening. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Our order was taken quickly. But we waited an hour to have our food arrive. There were plenty of things to keep the kids entertained while we waited and the kids, ages 6 and 9 loved the animals and thunderstorms along with the menu activity sheets. The women’s restroom needed to be cleaned. The food was very good. Too expensive for us for more than a once a year occurrence.

    Rainforest Cafe is a great place to take your kids or grandkids to. My granddaughters love watching the different animals when they "come alive". Also, the children's menu is a good value when compared to other restaurants, especially fast food places!

    We were a party of 9 and got a reservation no problem. Our server was not that attentive and it took a long time to get drinks refilled. Most food was ok but the fish tasted old. The Korean lettuce wraps were amazing and I would order that again.

    This was a really friendly and fun restaurant! They found our reservation and had a table for us right away. Everyone working there was approachable, and while we had a slight wait for our food we were well taken care of. A few things slipped on a busy Saturday night but anything that got missed was easily fixable. Our waiter handled a table of 6 like a pro. Bonus: The fish all seemed really happy and that made them fun to watch!

    It was our son’s 12th birthday. We made reservations for 10, an our table had 8 chairs. The hostess was rude, and stacked our menus on the middle of the table, dragged one chair over, and left. We had to rearrange and add another chair, but really the table wasn’t big enough for all of us. It wasn’t busy, either! There were many open tables. The server was nice, and pretty attentive, but it too almost an hour to get our food, and then he brought my son’s cake out while he was in the restroom (when I had asked him to wait until he came back) and they didn’t even sing happy birthday. It was a pretty terrible experience.

    Made reservations on a Tuesday evening for 10 people at 7:30 for my daughters 8th birthday celebration. Automatically our server Julio seemed very annoyed by us because we changed the horrible seating arrangement they gave us, he seemed to rush everything and by the time our food was brought to us it was room temp/cold not to mention the food there is THE WORST, my sisters food was cold so she sent it back and Julio did not like that also my daughter did not like how the pasta tasted so we asked if we could get the burgers right away julio was even more annoyed. Also I put on the reservation it was a birthday celebration and they never asked or mentioned if I wanted them to sing to my daughter I almost feel like I forced them on top of that the lava cake was $30 which when they sang to her the staff seemed so annoyed I wasn't even there due to the fact that they brought it out while I was talking to the manager a few ft away, after that I almost threw hands with every one in that facility because I feel like they ruined my daughters birthday expect for the manger George he was great. But definitely the worst place to have a birthday celebration I highly do not recommend. If you like dirty restrooms crappy service and below average overly priced food this is your place!

    My made a reservation for 1pm. Honestly, we got there super early at 12pm but we knew we still probably needed to wait until 1. They had a 45 minute wait for walk in’s. We waited and waited and walked the gift shop. People were walking in and getting seated with no wait. At 1:10 I asked about our table. We’re pretty patient people. She pulled up our reservation and took us to the table. There were TONS of open tables at this point. I don’t know if they just forgot about us or if we got lost in the rush but it was a little exhausting waiting with 3 kids. And I know we were early, that’s our fault but we just kept getting skipped. Would’ve been faster if we hadn’t of made the reservation. Food was awesome. Our server was awesome. It was just the check in process that sucked.

    It was fairly dead in the restaurant yet it took a while to get service and food. The server never came to check once we got our food which was slightly chilly. Something I would expect possibly from a chain like this at busy hours not when it was completely dead.

    They hit the nail on the head creating a rainforest, and it was a neat experience. However, the positives end there. We were sat at a table that backed up to the mist from the bar, and the seat was wet. Our table only had a place setting for 1, and I ended up having to get more off another table. We sat for 10 minutes before someone asked if we were being taken care of. It was another 5 minutes for someone to come over and take our drink order. The food is on par with something you would expect from an Applebee’s, but with a price tag that makes the Cheesecake Factory look inexpensive. With that being said, this might be a good place to spend a dessert portion of a progressive dinner, just for the rainforest experience.

    Very different experience than what I remembered. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Server was excellent—super friendly, accommodating, and attentive. The atmosphere is excellent for kids of all ages. We took my 3yo grandson who got a big kick out of all of it. No tablet or entertainment was required for a happy child. He colored the menu, watched the animals, and waited for the storm. My only wish was to catch a picture of his face when the (synthetic) storms would start. Kids menu had great variety and well balanced. Food was surprisingly tasty—not what I recalled from years past. Portions were large too. We will definitely be back.

    It is a theme restaurant. Nothing wrong with that, but don’t expect the food to be anything more than average at best. Service was just slightly better. Nice guy, just didn’t have much to work with. Beverage choice was less than comparable to other $300 meals. Hard to figure when kids drinks Key Wester, etc was as much as my vodka soda. One and done for the next 20 years. Sorry RFC!

    We booked a reservation at 7 which is apparently when they close so they shouldn’t be taking reservations starting at 7 anyway and they gave us a really hard time for being there 7 minutes late. Even though when you book it says you have a 15 min grace period. Also, we wanted to add a few people on to our reservation and the restaurant was nearly empty and they gave us a hard time about that too. Our waiter and food were great though.
