    Went for our sons 3rd bday, and they sat us in the worst area. Food was bland; ordered soup that was like a thick mousse and cold (corn chowder). Our server rarely checked up on us, and took forever to get our check.

    Waiter was not waiting our table. Waiting 30 minutes to just see waiter then after ordering our drinks waited almost 20 minutes just to receive them simple cokes and tea. Had to flag down waiter just for refills. Simply disappointing service

    They seated too many tables for the number of servers that they had. And the kitchen seemed to be understaffed as well. So service was very slow, and the kitchen messed things up a few times as well. Overall, it just took too long, and the restaurant was a bit dirty because they couldn’t keep up with that either.

    Good for kids. A little pricey and I guess depends on time you go. Might be waiting about 30-45 minutes for your Luke warm food to be brought out to you.

    Andrew our server was very rude. He messed up my order and then proceeded to treat us very badly. My second chicken dinner was inedible. First was prepared wrong. Chicken would not cut with a knife it was that bad. Mashed potatoes were ice cold. No gluten free buns at this location and they made me feel like I was crazy for even asking even though I get them at every other Rainforest. Very bad experience.

    Our waitress was very unsure of herself and we had to ask for things more than once (like utensils, refills, to go box, straws, etc)…one person in our party’s food got cold because she was waiting for utensils for so long..the other 5 members of our group liked their food…the decor is awesome and was the real reason we were there though

    This was our first visit to Rainforest Cafe. We were surprised by the lightning and loud animal sounds. This was very upsetting to those who suffer from PTSD. We will not return.

    Raintree forest was great , the server was outstanding , the The atmosphere was over the top. Here comes the disappointment. The food was a grade C my Stir-fry was too sweet , my daughter ordered fettuccine chicken pasta. The dish had over the amount of watery cheese sauce. My son order a pasta dish that had 10 pieces of pasta. I give it a C because the appetizers were great spinach dip and flatbread. I paid 139.50 for the Rainforest Cafe atmosphere. I was very disappointed. My twins were celebrating their birthday .the Free cupcake they we’re served was so was like eating sweet corn bread. Rainforest cafe you guys are going to have to do better. Thumps down .

    My daughter liked the scenery and the animations. The prices were extremely high for the style of food provided. We had a reservation for 7:00 pm, got there early and checked in and we were forced to wait til 7:00 and once we got in there were a very abundant amount of seating open and could have been taken in early instead of forced to wait in the lobby to be seated. I would recommend going once just to see the restaurant but I wouldn’t go just for the food.

    The greeter was rude. Waitresses incompetent and the food was disgusting not worth the price’s. You’re basically paying for the ambiance. The bathroom was dirty (no toiletries) and my family of four ended up sick afterwards. We couldn’t even finish our shopping at the mall. We will never go back !!!

    The place was not crowded, but it took them about 10mins just for our drink order. There were only 5 people in our party, but it took almost 20 minutes to get our food out and the food was terrible, citing taste, quality and temperature! I ordered the Ribs, Steak & Shrimp Trio ($35.49) and the steak was "very, cool" (whipped butter on top didn't melt) and had a funky taste (spoiling?), the top layer of ribs was okay, but the bottom layer (hidden) was way too, fatty to enjoy while the Coconut Shrimp was okay but, I had to ask for the Plum sauce that comes with it and the Coleslaw was nasty. My dining partners had various & similar complaints about their dishes. A complete waste of my hard earned money!! The only highlight was the "Sparkling Volcano" desert. Never again!!!

    We visit the Rainforest Cafe’ quite a bit, and usually our experience all the way around is stellar. Another reason why we joined the rewards program. However, this past visit was all great except for our waitress. We felt very discriminated against because of our beliefs. I was wearing a Faith t-shirt and there were immediate comments about it. Followed after that were short rude responses. We sat forever with out silverware, even brought our food without it. Our drinks remained empty for over 10-15 minutes. Another waitress came by and noticed and helped us out. Then When it came time to pay, we sat there even longer. Our waitress would walk by each time, look in our direction with the bill ready, and then quickly turn her back. Even when our kids were still eating she asked if we were finished and we replied our kids were still eating and she said “you can put it in a box for them to eat as you go”. I don’t understand the hostility or the rude treatment. We were kind and smiled through it all. As we were traveling through to get home after being on a business trip all week. Generally we don’t even complain, but the more we thought about this, the more we were bothered. We would’ve spoke with a manger yesterday, but our little kids were beyond ready to go. After this experience, it’s really hard to say whether we will return or not.

    Food was not good. I had fajitas and literally could not chew the steak. Another member of our party had their entire palate ruined by the honey mustard dressing. However, the service was great and the kids enjoyed the experience. You definitely go for the atmosphere though, not for a satisfying meal

    Terrible service. Didn’t get drinks until right before food was served. Had to ask another server for refills. Burger bun was so soggy it stuck to the paper in the bottom of the basket.
