    Very disappointed! I made reservations for my family to attend the Halloween event weeks in advance only to be charged $150 for my family of 4. Both my son’s attended in costume and my youngest should have been free! We were charged for both children when it was advertised that they were supposed to be free.

    We had a party of 10 for my daughters birthday. I wish the waitress would have been able to recommend some things to us or tell us about the menu before we ordered. We had to waste a lot of time looking over the menu. But my smaller kids loved the restaurant and even the older kids found it cool. The food we did order was very good too.

    We had an 11:30 reservation & we were sat in the middle of the dining area near none of the attractions. The restaurant was nearly empty. This was disappointing.

    We had a 7pm reservation and they had our table ready at 6:45pm - very good! The server took our drink order and it took 30 minutes to bring our order - which was mostly just water and soda. We spoke to the manager and after that, service improved. The food was very good.

    Rainforest Cafe is more than a restaurant, it's an experience. I loved watching my kid's faces light up while seeing the elephants and monkeys eat and shake trees. They get so excited during the thunderstorms and lightning. The decor really makes you feel like you're dining in the rainforest. The good food and service are just a bonus. A fun menu is designed to have options for all. My son has severe dairy allergies and they were able to alter how the meal was prepared so he could have it. Our server was available throughout our meal, accommodating and very friendly. A very fun restaurant and dining experience for the whole family. Highly recommend.

    A very nice ambiance and a nice variety of food just weren't too tasty. 2 kids and 2 adults food came to $130 so not too bad on pricing food just wasn't the most flavorful. Also, my table smelled like a dirty dish rag. Server was nice definitely a one time must visit type of place for kids.

    Great fun for younger adults and children food wise OK I have a gluten allergy so they weren’t too many choices no choices for dessert except ice cream I’m so tired of hearing that it’s not that difficult to have gluten-free items that would be the one main reason why I wouldn’t go back and that the atmosphere is fine service was good and it was very Inexpensive

    Having a meal at RainForest Cafe is always fun! The food is good and is comparatively priced to something like a Hibachi dinner. The real point of going is for the experience of the place itself! If you've never been before then you owe it to yourself to have a birthday, anniversary or some other special meal there with family and/or friends at least one time! Hope you enjoy!!!

    You go for the exeprience not necessarily the food, however, my kids did love it. Our food took forever to come and when it did it was clear it had been sitting for a long time. We went at an off time and it wasnt particularly crowded so I dont know why it was so slow.

    Service was really slow took 20 minutes to get our drinks which was a water and 2 lemonades in souvenir cups. Food took 45 minutes from the time we ordered. The ambiance is alright. Definitely needs some remodeling and updating. Noise level was pretty loud since they had sounds like your in a rainforest ie. Birds, water, wind and music playing over that at the same time. Food was ok. We ordered the large appetizer sampler, lemon grilled chicken sandwich meal that had fries and Dino nuggets kids meal. Nothing great or out of this world. Probably a one and done for us. Sad I had great memories as a kid and it just wasn’t what I remembered.

    We took our children here with friends for a birthday celebration. We did have reservations and not issues being seated, though we would have preferred to be seated further into the restaurant rather than right on the edge to get a better overall experience . Our server was very friendly, but service was extremely slow, taking nearly half an hour just to get our drinks. The food for the price was so not worth it. Even my younger children, who eat very, very little at meals, polished off their food in record time and were not full. For the high, high price of food for what we got I would probably not visit again.

    The atmosphere is cool. The food was bad. The wrong burger came and after telling the server we “couldn’t eat cheese” the same burger came back with the cheese scraped off. This would have been a big issue for a severe allergy. However, the drinks were really good!! We would go back just to the bar.

    They made my son’s 6th birthday dinner celebration extra special! Between the animal noises, the hypnotic blue bubble water feature, and the hit of the night - the “thunderstorm;” a great time was had by all.

    Didn’t really care for the waiter. He was pushy, slightly rude & I didn’t feel he embraced me and my son the way he should’ve for my sons birthday. He rushed to pick up plates, rushed to take our orders when we truly wanted to enjoy our time at the rainforest cafe. He needs to learn better customer service.

    We were celebrating my daughter's birthday, we spoke before with someone about it, and they didn't bring the cake to sing happy birthday, and the service was very bad and the waitress didn't look good and didn't have the be patience to wait us find the food. Unfortunately was bad.

    The food is terrible, if you like food similar to apple bees style this is your spot. There arent many options and there is no seasoning on the food. Then again if you are a child this food is great for you. So If you are going for a child or teenager birthday or just outing this is fine.
