One Time Trip

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... read 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...

Fun environment. The kids love the animatronics and fish tanks, and the good is always enjoyable, but, the process ate steep and the portions overwhelming. Rather than taking home good you may our May not get around to reheating, share a plate and then have dessert.

I really wish I had my Grandbabies with me to experience this place! Sophia was my waitress and she made sure I had everything I needed to include helping me figure out something for my MUNCHIE TIME!

We ended our Girls' Shopping Day with a late dinner here. We pretty much closed out the restaurant, but the staff never rushed us or made us feel unwelcome. Had the Cheetah-Rita, which comes with a souvevir glass, and it was yummy. The service was prompt and the food was good. Two of the girls had burgers that were enormous.... More

I been to this Rainforest numerous times for the kids. They are always disorganized. Needs new management. Being seated is horrific if requesting a booth. I'm a Landrys select member and suppose to get privileged treatment but that never seems to happen. Why pay for membership if I get same treatment as the rest. The only thing I get is... More
