The fish tanks are awesome and the other forest noises are mostly kid-oriented. The menu is overpriced and the food was average at best. It's a big production to charge the meal to your room...lots of back and forth and wasted time. Despite us telling the server we needed to get to a show over at another casino, we were... More

Be picky where you sit. There are beautiful waterfalls, try to avoid the main walkway. Otherwise you concentrate on everyone coming in instead of the surroundings. This is the first time in our many visits that we had just an OK meal. Not too bad of odds. Restrooms are on second floor. Lots of stairs, but, there is a small... More

We have eaten at many Rain Forest Cafes. The service, food and value are always very good. They offer a wide range of dishes for all tastes.

This was one of the first restaurants I visited while in Vegas for 10 days, and it was alright. We were sat next to a rather large fish tank with some exotic fish in it, which was nice to watch, and was far more entertaining than the loud animal noises and thunderstorms which periodically go off, but alas, this is...

We found this cafe right at the entrance of the MGM casino one evening, before hitting the slots, and decided to try it. The place is a bit kitsch for sure (but so almost all Vegas), yet the fact is, despite we don´t have kids, we really enjoyed the colourful ambiance and all the 'animals' and 'plants' and the rainstorm...

Really great concept educating us while we eat, it was great fun with the rain storm part way through and the animals coming to life as well as the beautiful tropical fish. The food was lovely, good value the portions are so big and the service was excellent too. A must when you go to vegas

We have been to Rainforest Cafe's before, one in Chicago and one in Dallas, so this one was pretty standard compared to the others. They had the roar of the lions, and tigers as well as the elephants. The atmosphere is kinda dim, so I had to breakout my handy flashlight to see the menu. We tried a couple of... More

With 2 hours to order, eat and get to a show, this was not a good choice. We walked in before 5pm, with very few customers there. We were seated, ordered drinks and meals. Over an hour later we still did not have our food and was told it was because the turkey club sandwich we ordered was new on... More

The food was excellent but way over-priced like everything at MGM. The noise is maddening. I recognize the need for some noise given the theme of the place but an elephant braying in my face every few minutes is annoying. It's hard to carry on a conversation. I saw more little kids afraid of the loud noises than I did... More
