Love it here! Great place for kids

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.

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.

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

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.
