The littles loved it and the food was good. Best to make reservations and appreciative for them honoring our request to be near elephants.

Took my grandsons, we haven’t been to Rainforest Cafe for 11 years, since Disneyland. It brought back so many wonderful memories of our trip. I live in California, and there isn’t one near Rocklin.I wish we had one.

The food and experience was amazing. We went for my daughters first birthday. She loved it and had a good time. I was super happy to take her somewhere due to Covid parties are not a good idea so this was a good replacement

We had a reservation for 5:15 and received a text at 5:00 that our table was ready. We were seated and then it took almost 15 minutes for our waitress to come over and even ask if we wanted drinks. After we got our drinks she took our order. We didn’t see her again until we were finished and ready to get our checks. She asked if we wanted to order anything else and we said no. As she brought our check she brought 2 drink refills which were the first refills we received during our entire time there. Throughout our dinner we had kids constantly running around and two were even next to our table and in our personal space while we tried to eat. We tried to be understanding but the kids were like that throughout the entire dinner. In addition to that, the service overall was just very poor. We will not be returning and we were not happy with our experience. I would not recommend it to anyone who is considering. We paid what we usually pay at a nicer restaurant to get subpar food. We weren’t expecting anything fancy but it wasn’t even standard for what they usually offer. I have been before and this experience has made me decide to stop returning for good.

Received text that our reservation had been moved up 15 minutes (30-minutes prior to reservation) without our permission. Fortunately, we were nearby and could head that way. Service was poor and the restaurant was not full. The quality of the food did not match the price we paid. We only saw our waitress 3 or 4 times in 90-minutes. Our food was not brought out at the same time and my son’s food arrived long after everyone had finished eating. Neat atmosphere with animatronics and “thunder storms”, but probably at the bottom of our “return” list.

Very cool place to eat. But the food is not very good. (Could have been just a bad experience) But You are paying a high price for the cool scenery. It’s one of those done it once…cool…won’t do it again.

We were seated quickly. The restaurant was showing its wear. The server was polite and friendly but seemed rushed and hectic. Place could use a thorough scrubbing. Decor could use an overhaul. The food was over cooked, dry and unappetizing (fajitas and kids pasta and Dino nuggets. My youngest (8) thought the place looked cool, but spent the entire evening on the toilet forgetting about the anamatronic (sp?) elephants. Meal was cheap, in comparison to the Gaylord hotel prices. I would have happily paid three times as much for something delicious.

They appear to be having some staffing issues. There was about a 15 minute wait to be seated past our reservation time and another 15-20 minutes until a server came to our table for a drink order. There were also many empty tables. The server was very nice but the service was very slow and the food was really disappointing. It really wasn’t good and so far it’s been the most expensive meal we have had in Nashville (and definitely the worst tasting.) ,This used to be such a fun experience for the kids and while the food has never been super gourmet, I don’t ever remember it being so bleck.

A little noisy at times when the wildlife (animatronics) get stirred up, or a thunderstorm rolls through, but otherwise normal restaurant atmosphere. The food was very good for both adults and children. A little more expensive than an average steakhouse, but well worth the extra $$!

Overall a great experience. Our waitress/bartender was great. She was slammed with her own section and the bar area but still covered all her tables and was honest about time. Only negative is they would not let us move up our reservation. So we chose to sit at the bar tables. We canceled our later reservation and the gentleman behind us asked for a table for 4 and they refused to give him our reservation. I guess this is their policy but it seems petty and unnecessary.
