    They were definitely short staffed. Had a reservation at 6:30 didn’t order our food until 7:10. Had to wait 40 min to get our food. My husband and brother in law notice that there were no waiters on the floor for 30 min. Then all of sudden we and other tables got our food but it was not hot. Our food tasted like it was sitting on the line for 5 min before coming to the table. And our poor waiter looked like they were working a double shift because he was the only one running around to tables asking if everything was ok. It looked like he was also waiting on 7 tables all at once. We had another waiter bring the food to our table but she had to ask the hostess where table 23 was witch was our table. We are from oc and made the drive there because the downtown Disney restaurant closed. My husband and brother/ sister in law were very disappointed by the experience.

    Usually when we come here it's a pretty quick service, but this visit was absurdly slow. It wasn't our server's fault, I think it was the kitchen but OMG EVERYTHING took forever. This was not a great visit.

    Our server Lindsey was super nice and accommodating she even took the kids on a little tour around the restaurant because they were so excited to see everything. She connected with us and checked in on us right on time. They had a photographer there , a balloon maker which the kids loved. A show every 15 minutes, and thunderstorm every 30 min. My kids and niece enjoyed and said that’s the best time they’ve had.

    Expensive for no reason. Food is mediocre, the staff is nice. Didn't get our food was told there was a fire in the kitchen but in actuality they were just closing. They brought our appetizers and nothing else. The cocktails were good. That's about it

    While we went there for the two 3 year olds, we were hoping the food would be at least halfway decent for the adults. We were sadly disappointed on that front. There were 13 people in our party, and the only two happy with their food were the three year olds.

    Had reservations and still took a good 30 min to get sat down. The waitress had a great personality but kept forgetting things. The drinks took a while to get to the table and the food took about a good 45 min. I understand it was a Saturday night but i still don’t think it should have taken that long. The food was amazing tho.

    Make sure you tell your server how you want your steak at least twice, I ended up getting mine very well done when I asked for medium. Very disappointed.

    Ambiance, menu are as expected.. consistent with the Rainforest Cafe chain. If you've been to a Rainforest Cafe elsewhere, you've been to this one. Food quality for the dishes we ordered was good. Service was friendly, but only ok. Water and other beverages were not regularly refilled as we waited nearly an hour for food to arrive after ordering.

    When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess was allegedly unable to find my Open Table Reservation, I immediately showed her and at that point she found it. We were then rushed to a table as I was explaining it was my 2 year old granddaughters first visit. Needless to say, the servicer Kat at our table 110/1 was horrible. She never offered drink refills, water etc. the sad part was my granddaughters pizza and fries were forgotten and Kat with no sense of urgency, even after seeing that all the group had food already, said she would check on the pizza. Sometime later the cold pizza and fries arrived. I asked to speak with the manager about about 10 to 15 min later a blond hair female with an attitude showed up asking what questions I had. I explained that I had no “questions” and at that point figured it was a waste of my time to even explain the situation, since she already displayed attitude. My question to the establishment, how do you allow negative reviews to be posted without making some adjustments. People dine out and expect quality food and service. Well I can tell you from my experience, RainForest offers none of the above. My donation of $135.00 will be my first and last, unless I see a change in management and service. I am really surprised that Landry’s Inc. allows this type of service as it is not displayed at their other owned establishments I dine at frequently.

    Rainforest is our favorite place for the kids. It’s nostalgic when we go. We have so many memories. However, a lot has changed. The prices are extraordinarily high, and the service is incredibly slow; although the kids menu is still reasonable. The lava cake isn’t the same, there were no sparkles as advertised and popularly known it was just a dry brownie cake like dessert. My biggest complaint is the service was slow and we never saw our waitress and had to flag down multiple waiters about 4 -5 diff times to go find her, and the restaurant was almost empty so there was no excuse for slow service.

    Service is always pretty good but the food was terrible and what a horrible table we got even with a reservation they stuck us with little children behind a huge tree they couldn’t even see the jungle. The food took forever and was cooked to death but also ice cold somehow? They ran out of mashed potatoes and my daughter received what looked like moldy chicken tenders. For what we paid it really was a joke. The server was nice and accommodating but u can’t make up for a slow kitchen and overpriced bad food.

    Read the reviews before I went there, and from the start it was a bad experience. Got there and they didn’t even have my reservation ready, after that it room them 30 minutes to order our food, then they got our order writing twice. I had coffee and it was bitter and cold. They were supposed to sing Happy Birthday to my son and they didn’t. Thought it would’ve been a better experience done there aren’t a lot of them open anymore. Maybe they were just having a bad day, idk.

    Server completely forgot about us so another person brought us our food and then he brought our drinks after. I’d completely be understanding if it was busy but it there was 5 other tables in the restaurant with 2 other servers that we could see on the floor, and asked one if we could close out with them. Honestly was looking really forward but turned out very dissapointing

    Service was almost non existent we had to flag down someone to get our server multiple times and when she came would fill a water with her head turned and before we could ask for our other needs she left. The restaurant is loud as to be expected but trying to get service, sauce, napkins exc is very difficult if your server isn’t attentive. The restaurant was also not crowded so not sure where the service went.

    Atmosphere and food was good, only problem was some items did not have price and I asked the sever, she told me the price but the check came out with a different, much more expensive price, they should just print the price on the menu instead of the sever giving the wrong price.

    Amazing place! The food is as good as the ambiance if not better. A little expensive but very memorable and well worth it.
