Our first time at Rainforest. The service was very slow, waited about 10 minutes to get a waitress after being seated. Wiated for a long time to get the food, which came out at room temperature. The food was horrible. Everyone's meal was very disappointing. The atmosphere was great especially for the kids, but that was the only thing worth... More

My wife and I always wanted to go to Rainforest Café, but decided that to wait until we had kids. Well, our time came this past weekend when we took our 2 year old daughter. We absolutely love this place. The atmosphere was exciting, and the food was excellent. The wait was 45 minutes, but that was expected for a... More

We had asked for a quiet table after traveling with no sleep for over 36 hours, and they pleasantly accommodated! They were friendly, and the food was truly delicious as usual!

After waiting 10 minutes to be seated in thr nearly dead restaurant,(there was only 3 other tables occupied) they put us by the dolphins (which don't do anything...) and were quick to take our...

I thought the food was much better than I'd expected. And our waitress did a great job. On the other hand, the fake animals get tiring after a few roars and once you've heard the false thunderclap a few times you'll wish you'd brought earplugs. Not to be a cynic, though. These things have a certain appeal with kids, and... More

PROS: very good fake forest environment with moving animals, decent food CONS: faint smell of reused water everywhere, kids (10yrs) weren't engaged, disinterested waiters DETAILS: Kids asked to go for their 10th b-day. They had heard a lot of positive things about the one in San Francisco. Waiting for our ORD flight, we stopped for dinner. I was surprised that... More

We took our (3) small grandchildren and I was very surprised how good the food was. Unfortunately the service was very slow. Restaurant was not very busy but yet they were making people wait so perhaps they were short on Servers. We arrived a half hour early for our reservation and they wouldn't seat us. I pointed out to the... More

The place was pretty empty. We asked to sit by one of the animatronic animals. Was led to a tree where we could not see anything without getting up. Been to many rfcafe... Not much in this one really. We just ordered water & appetizers & still had a crazy bill. Tons of stuff in the gift shop to choose... More

Visited with my daughter and grand-daughter. It took 15 minutes to find us a seat even though the restaurant was more that half empty. Server was nice but inattentive. Food cost about twice its value. Was underwhelmed by our food and server.
