Our waiter was awesome! He took time to talk to all of us and provided his own recommendations as well as interacted with the kids making us feel welcomed. Great experience overall!

Rainforest is always a fun experience and our waiter went above and beyond.
I mentioned I was Landry’s member 2 times. When we arrived and at register when buying a toy .... manager told me he’d have to get number from me later .... and then of course didn’t .... thought that was odd ....

The Cafe is very nice to see and admire and extremely family oriented. The food tastes ok but the prices are the biggest downfall in my opinion. Three fish tacos for $18 is quite overpriced. And $10 for a small frozen lime margarita is outrageous. I recommend to visit once but not an affordable place for families on a regular basis.

We had a great experience at RFC. Went to celebrate our son's 5th bday. He loves this resto. Food tastes great! Service is awesome! And we felt safe during this covid time. Restrooms are clean and whole place seems clean. There were only three tables occupied when we came and we are spaced far apart.

Had a great time here, was a little nervous about it being inside a mall - but the experience was just as good as going to a stand alone Rainforest Cafe location. The staff were all absolutely remarkable and were excellent in all ways.

Slow service. Took about 45 minutes to get our food even though there were lots of empty tables. The server was inattentive. Had to track him down to get drink refills. They reduced their menu selection considerably, probably due to Covid. No desire to return to this place anytime soon.

Our waiter did a great job, but there was a different server that brought out our food. This server was very rude. They brought out 4 extra kids plates that we did not order. I tried to explain it to him and he was very rude about it. We visit this Rainforest Cafe often due to my family living in Katy, but I have a feeling we will start going to the Galveston Cafe.

We took our daughter here while back to school shopping. With a restaurant virtually empty, not one but two tables on the sides of our booth were seated (with people less than six feet from us). Apparently social distancing during a pandemic doesn’t matter here.

The food is average and honestly, overpriced. We won’t be back for a long time (she likes it here, but over $60 for a family lunch is excessive).

It was a great first time experience... unfortunately we were trying to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and the person that walked us to our table when asked she said they no longer did the volcano cake and when we were walking out we witnessed it happening to another family. I was very upset I knew that would have made it a greater time but we had already paid for the check unfortunately. But other than that everyone there was nice and great food!

Look closely at the menu, with which accompaniment your food comes. I ordered a salmon with shrimp, and they brought it to me with fries. I was surprised that he came with french fries and asked the waitress to confirm if that dish came with french fries and he said yes. When leaving the restaurant, check the menu and say with vegetables. I asked to speak to the manager and they just say sorry. If you go to the Rain forest café in Katy Mill, be sure which companion your dish comes with. Don't trust what the waiter says. They put what suits them and not what the menu says. And if you complain, they say "Sorry" and goodbye.

Rainforest Café is my son's favorite restaurant. We usually go to the one in Galveston. But for some reason we couldn't get any reservations or even anyone to answer the phone. We were visiting friends in the Katy area, so we chose to go to that location. Our waiter was very nice, very helpful and very attendant. I apologize for not remembering his name, but he was a delight. The food was good, everyone enjoyed themselves and we will be back for another visit.

There were 4 of us and we each order a different entre. All four entrees looked delicious and according to each diner, they tasted delicious. Three of us were unable to finish our meals, so the entrees contain a significant amount of food. The host at the front desk could not have been nicer or more attentive - and, our waitress was terrific. She was polite and efficient - and kept refilling our beverages when she noticed them almost empty. I wish we lived closer, but this will be an excellent place to meet friends who live west of Houston!

It’s hard to write a review after the pandemic but the food was good and well presented. Price point was a little high so a family of 5 ate lunch for about $22 each

Not sure if they were short staff but we waited awhile to put drink order in. Once they took that I needed napkins for my 8 yr old after getting food never got them. Put in for another drink didn't get it tell after we ate. I would still try this place again cause we had a good time there.

Food was lackluster and bland, gravy had no taste, fruit was served after being placed under a heat lamp, kid's pizza was just average at best. Too many unruly children allowed to run about without parental supervision!

Overall great time. I have a 4 year old granddaughter her first time to Rainforest Cafe and she just loved it. Waiter was great the only problem we encountered is that it took over 45 minutes to get our food. There were people who were seated way after we were and we even ordered before them. But for some reason they go their food before ours. It was't like we ordered anything difficult. But we got our food and it was good. Otherwise we enjoyed the place. A little pricey I thought.

This was my first time at Rainforest Cafe. I went with my friend and our kids. The ambiance was nice for the kids but every time the thunder began I had to hide in the restroom bc my daughter was scared of it. We were sat at a table with no utensils. Our waitress Jocelyn I think was her name took a while to approach us but it’s Valentine’s Day I get it. Even though I work at a restaurant where our guests are not to be at their table for longer than a minute before being greeted. Anyway. She brings us our drinks then takes our order. The food took forever to come out and she never told us there was a long food wait until we asked how much longer for the food. She told us that the kitchen was slammed and it’d probably be another 15 minutes. Our reservation was at 7:30 and it was 8:50 when I asked my friend if she just wanted to leave then my entree arrives. I didn’t want to eat until my friend and her kids got their food. At this point everyone is in a bad mood and just wants to leave. I had to ask her 3 times for utensils. My friend got the trio and was not asked how she wanted her steak and it came out practically alive. It was so rare I couldn’t believe. My friend let our server know and a manager never came by the table which in my restaurant if a guest complains a manager is to ask the table how is everything. We had to ask her 4 times to bring Capri suns for the kids. She was nice, had no attitude but was not attentive what so ever. I work in the restaurant business and I know when a server is busy. There were barely any tables at the time while we were there. I was very disappointed at my experience and will not be back again.
