We went for lunch on a Saturday around 1, only had a 1/2 hour wait, and they were right about the wait, wasn't much more than a 1/2 hour. Got seated and waitress was out right away.

It's a great place to go with your kids altho I did enjoy the atmosphere. The food was not impressive. A bit on the expensive side for the quality but I guess I could have made 3 meals out of it so quantity is big. I had something like an Alfredo pasta and just did not cut it for me.

We had 3 little ones and always wanted to check this place out. Since we were in town, we decided to take them here. I was expecting overpriced sub-par food, but while the prices were close to what I expected, the food was a lot better than I expected. One of my kids was a little scared of the noises... More

We took our son here for lunch so he could experience the "rainforest" setting. We enjoyed the scenery and atmosphere, but the food was really not that great. It was very, very bland and way overpriced. Go to the restaurant early and get your name in then shop in the mall. We waited almost an hour and a half to... More

It is quite lovely, the atmosphere, the total immersion into a "Rainforest".... All you need is patience and lots of money. This is a "Special" outing for the family or friends. Food is good if you get it completely right with the first serving, and that took some time to get. So if you wanna drop some dough and sit... More

I'm not sure that this is where I would go without kids, but the food is consistently good. My whole family loves it when the thunder starts and the storm begins in the restaurant. On my most recent visit, I had the Macadamia Crusted Tilapia and Caribbean Coconut Shrimp. Yum, yum, yum! I have also had the pot roast and... More

20 people with a reservation! Excellent food and service. Great fun for the younger kids. Pricey but worth a trip. There's a cute gift shop and lots of decorative scenes.

Food was delicious, staff was awesome and the balloon guy was phenomenal!! This one was much more spacious than the other Rainforests we have been to in the past.

What we liked: The decor (our 3 year old loves it) and the atmosphere. As well, one of the managers made it a point to go "Find" Cha Cha even though he doesn't "work" on Friday nights that late. And that made our Son MEGA happy!! The Bad: It was easily an hour from our order to getting our meal.... More

No doubt, the Rainforest Café offers a unique environment that is fun for the whole family. The quality and value of the food is questionable. If you are wanting to go simply for a interesting experience - this is a great option. If you are wanting good food that is worth the cost, this restaurant is questionable. You are definitely...
