I had never been to a Rain Forest Cafe before, so my best friend said we had to go before we went home. So we did, the waiter was enthusiastic and fun, but the restaurant itself needs some improvement (they are moving when their contract is up) the animals are old and you can tell they haven't been dusted probably...

Ok, so why do they take your starter and main order together?? I'll tell ya for why, if they didn't you wouldn't be ordering a main after the starter. At least that was the case with our nachos. Absolutely lovely but the portion was huge. Luckily we'd only ordered a chicken caesar salad each as a main (which was also... More

Yes, we came for the experience, not just the food, but having been last year to the one in Downtown Disney, this one is lacking. The decor seems a bit dated, our server was one step above awful, not sure why she's choosing food service as a career. Food was average, but about 50% overpriced. Souvenir alcoholic drink in a...

The Rain Forest environment was very cool, as in all of the Rain Forest Cafe locations. The service was just average. The food was fine, but nothing special. The portion was small.

After a 10 min wait for 8 people we were seated (at the elephants), as per usual with rainforest cafe's it's filled with animatronics and aquariums, service was decent but didn't excel very far - scenery is nice.

We traveled to Vegas with a party of 20 for our wedding. This was the most affordable option to cater our wedding. The food was PERFECT. Guest were able to choose from a few selections and the dessert was great too. Service was great. I must say I am not of fan of RFC locally, MGM location tasted perfect.

Awesome atmosphere, especially in Las Vegas dry hot environment. It is little bigger than other rain forest cafes I have been. Very well maintained and good staff. Food is good and reasonably priced. Good dining option in Las Vegas if you have kids with you.
