The food is good, but the service was slow. I am disappointed that we have to wait at least 25 minutes for a table and then always end up in some corner. With two young kids it would be nice to be a bit more center of things. There were tables open, but when I asked if we could move... read more

We came here for dinner ad this place is located in Downtown Disney. We checked in for a party of 6 and they told us about 25 minutes wait so we wondered around their store and after 5 minutes they called us. Sweet! We sat upstairs and they took our order. Service was a bit slow as they were pretty... More

I would really like to give my visit to Rain Forest Cafe a higher rating, but I just can't justify it. The food was mediocre at best - we split a cobb salad and the natchos. Both meals were flat, and really gave the impression that they were produced in some central RFC factory, then shipped and only plated at... More

Is a popular destination in Downtown Disney, so expect it to be crowded most of the time, specially for lunch or dinner. If you're inside Disneyland and want to reach there fast, there's no best way of doing it, and fun also!, than to ride the monorail and exit on the Disney Hotel station. You'll be stamped on your way... More

This place is a great combination of food, atmosphere, and service! We sat upstairs, outside, where we were able to listen to the amazing band that was playing in downtown Disney. The food is excellent, pricey, but very much worth it. The staff was amazing, and it was a birthday weekend and they were so kind about singing happy birthday... More

I cashed out a rebate program to get a Rainforest Cafe gift certificate for $50 thinking that would be plenty for lunch on one of our days in Disney for a family of 4 (two adults, two toddlers.) Wrong. We arrived around 2:00 pm and were told it was about a 20 minute wait. Okay fine. The wait felt interminable... More

This is your standard theme restaurant where the food is okay but you're really paying for the ambiance. It's definitely fun for the kids to see the jungle like decor and giant fish tanks. They do have "thunder and lightning" inside every 40 minutes I believe, so be aware of this if you have small children. I was pleasantly surprised... More

Rainforest Café should be standard everywhere. Obviously, this is not true and most DEFINITELY not true at the Downtown Disney location in Anaheim. The atmosphere and décor is, again, standard - nothing special or different with this being the Disneyland location. The food we ordered (burger plate, kids meals, nachos) we lukewarm and average. The service was REALLY slow, even... More

Didn't have reservations but got in with little wait. Service was great and food was very good. Beverages were cold and not that highly priced. It is a chain, offers good atmosphere for kids but always have a good meal.

We arrived at 5:30 on a Friday night and was happy to find it was only a 20 minute wait. All the staff we encountered was very nice. They were very accommodating of my allergies. Everyone in my party enjoyed the meal. My son loved his frog headband/hat and we got some pretty funny pictures of him! The thunderstorm was... More
