Always nice

I've never had a bad experience here. My kids love the food and smoothies. The food is always fresh, hot and good.

We were greeted by a friendly guy and then escorted to our table. The atmosphere is unique and interesting. Once we were seated it went down hill. We waited for a server and when he finally came he took forever to come back with our drinks. We ordered cheeseburgers and they were absolutely TERRIBLE! Both burgers were inedible. They were...

We waited 40 minutes which made no sense at first because when I looked in the restaurant it was only 1/3 full. That should have been a warning sign but it was my sons birthday and we were starving. We ended up being there over 2 hours for dinner and with little kids that is way too long. The actual... More

This is our 3rd (& last) trip to this restaurant. My daughter loves this place and we have been here for her birthday in the past. What draws us back are the giant aquariums with all of the beautiful fish. How disappointed we were to see empty tanks with a bubbler and a few plastic plants! There were no operating... More

We had a large party with two kids and several adults. Two of us had food allergies. The service was excellent. The chef came right to the table to speak directly with us about our dietary needs and both of our meals were exactly as requested. All of the staff we encountered did a fabulous job and the food was... More

We have only been two Rainforest Cafes in the past (Atlantic City, NJ and downtown Disney) as there are none near our home. The Rainforest Café in the Woodfield Mall didn't disappoint. We were two longtime 50-something friends plus a teenager who met here for lunch, and what a delight it was! While certainly smaller than the Rainforest Café in... More

My co-worker friends and I ate here while driving and found this to be relaxing and fun. We all liked the food we ate and the staff was friendly. I ate a jungle burger and found it juicy and tasty. I really like the slushy drink with yogurt. It was very tasty, you have to try it. We sat under... More

We love Rainforest Cafe, and I have to say that this location was not my favorite. We really like the Mall of America location. The Schaumburg location was very bland. They have no fish anymore. The hostess told us that evidently none of the midwest locations have fish in the tanks anymore. So now there are only bubbles and white... More

In the jungle, the mighty jungle......Very neat restaurant that certainly offers a different dining experience. Neat place although pretty pricey.
