Let's be honest, if you have kids, you should eat here....but if it's just the two of you, it's loud, staff is just OK, and the food is just average...like a typical chain. So, you might want to avoid this place. If you have to eat here, it's like any chillis, Applebee's, etc.... Nothing special at all. Sad!

Typical rainforest cafe. Can get very busy at times - located right inside the MGM Grand hotel - convenient location.

We loved the atmosphere of the Rainforest Café, and didn't mind waiting in line, as we had gotten a couple of drinks at the bar as we waited in line, and the fish tanks you walk around as you are in line keep you mesmerized. I should mention that the bar has quick service, and our virgin Pina Coladas were... More

We made a reservation ahead of time but got there to find we had to wait in a que with those that had not reserved their seats. Then eventually we got to a secondary que for those with reservations but the line for no reservation seemed to move faster. Eventually we were told that the reason for the wait despite... More

We went quite late for dinner so didn't have a queue. Food served fairly quickly. Meals and wine reasonably priced

At first glance this cafe looked fun, but the longer you sat there the creepier it became, didn't enjoy this experience. Service and food were fine.

We waited almost an hour to be seated and then had to take seating at the bar. We have been to several rainforest cafes before and never have the prices been this high (oh the joy of eating on the strip) the drinks were watered down and $13 each and the food was just ok. Small portion sizes and nothing... More

Perfect to walk through especially with kids. Look up and around and you will see lots of things. A great distraction from the casino and Vegas life. Just sit and enjoy

There was a rather long line to get into the Rainforest this time. On other trips, we just walked right in. We were asked if we wanted to sit at the bar. Well, I didn't but I was hungry so we agreed to it. First problem: I am short and had difficulty climbing onto the odd bar stools. (Been to... More

I have been to the Rainforest Cafe many times before but not for a long time. My friend had never been there before so on our first night in Vegas we decided to go here. When I saw the menu I thought it was very overpriced with all main meals being about $20 each. The food was good but I'm... More
