“A thrill for our 2 year old”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

I was concerned that it might be scary for our 2 year old, but she couldn't get enough. She loved it when the gorrillas came to life! The food is always good here and they managed to serve it in record time-also delivering the baby's food first which really helped.

“I wanna go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Wanted to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday weekend with a fun restaurant and this dinner was fantastic! We had a couple of fancy drinks in souvenir glasses (took 4 home) that were delicious. I ordered the flat iron steak with garlic mashed potatoes and it was cooked perfectly. Had the volcano sundae dessert to finish the meal off. It ended up being a very pricey meal ($150 for 3 people) but totally worth it on special occasions. Love the atmosphere.

“What a unique experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We were tired and hungry after our first early morning entry into Disneyland. We wandered around Downtown Disney looking for somewhere to eat when we spotted the RFC. We decided to go in, it looked very inviting...the minute my youngest, 11, saw the giant fishtanks, we were hooked! We were lucky enough to get a table upstairs with the elephants. We soaked up the atmosphere with the sounds and smells and were greeted very cheerily by Carly. The menu was huge and catered for my fussy eaters, 11 and 13. We marvelled at the thunderstorms and lighting while we waited for our meals. They were delicious. What an experience, we had never seen anything like this before back in West. Aust. Of course we returned another 4 times after that. Twice JUST to have the VOL CAN OH! We loved how it was delivered to our table!
We loved RFC so much we even went to one in Las Vegas just to relive the experience.

“A Great Family Memory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

After trooping through Disneyland for 3 days we were in need of a break so headed for dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. It was easy to get to thanks to the Monorail. There was a lot to see inside to keep the kids entertained until the meals arrived, and it was a nice break from Disney-mania. Our server even encouraged the kids to stroll around and check out all the animals in other parts of the restaurant which was fun. The food was good and the service fast and friendly. The highlight of the meal was the volcano cake we ordered for dessert - a family sized serving of ooey gooey chocolate goodness served by the staff with flair! (Next time we might just take an afternoon tea break there and share a volcano!) The meal was not cheap but the visit was an entertaining experience in and of itself so was worth splurging for one evening out. A great memory.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Fun atmosphere-loud and lively, kid friendly. Waiter was terrific, food was yummy and fast, photographer walking around to take photos (for a price of course and well worth the memories!), souvenir glasses to take home. Would eat here again if ever in California again. Loved the experience.
