Ok Food, Great Show...Pricey

Just remember you are here for the show, not the food. The food was ok but way overpriced. It was a fun place to eat, though, for the kids.

My husband and I took our grandchildren to Rainforest about one week ago. All of us were very disappointed to see that all the beautiful fish had been removed from this restaurant and according to the staff would not be there in the future because they cost too much to maintain. The fish were the most beautiful part of this... More

Getting seated at this restaurant is terrible. We gave our names to the hostess at the front of the restaurant and were told it would be twenty minutes. She took other names, called a few people, then suddenly shut down the hostess station and went to seat people, completely forgetting people had reservations. The manager seemed to care less about...

The atmosphere is spectacular. It's name fits perfectly how it is designed. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Loved the fish tank with all the different fish. The food was perfect. They even gave me a free lemonade. Thanks so much. Highly recommend.

This was our 3rd Rainforest Café visit. Each time we were with larger groups of people with kids and the each time the staff was polite and friendly and patient. Great food and so much to see around you. Kids love it. Definitely will come back. A favorite of our family for vacation meals.

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. We have never been to a rainforest cafe before so we wanted some souvenir, ended up getting drinks with take home cups and... More

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
