The ambience was fun, my friend and I were really impressed with all the well thought out details. We noticed how excited the kids at other tables were and we really enjoyed it. The service and food were very good. However, we’re both nature and...animal lovers and felt sorry for the real shark, in the aquarium tank at the front. It seemed to be gasping as if it were sting as well as some of the other fish, they did not look very at ease more like they were barely hanging in there for their lives, one fish was almost on its side which is a bad sign and we felt it was cruel to keep them in such a confined environment and not really cared for properly! I think they should put the shark in a bigger tank somewhere since now it wouldn’t serve it to release it in the wild, but that was a sad shark, and it made us very sad to see it like that, which is too bad, because the rest of the experience was really fun but that put a damper on it!More

Went to Niagara Falls to see the Festival of Lights and my kids wanted to go to Rainforest Cafe for dinner, since our old one at Yorkdale closed years ago. We all have great food and service. Expensive, but not really bad for Niagara. As...I said, the food was great. My sirloin was cooked as well (medium actually) if not better than the Keg or Baton Rouge. Would definitely come back.More

This restaurant was very exciting for my daughter. She loved the opportunity to look around at all of the animals. There is thunder and lightening simulation every 30 minutes which could have been scary, but we just timed it to take her to the washroom....The food was tastey, but it was expensive.More

Quick visit to Niagara with our granddaughters and wanted them to experience the great environment the restaurant offers. They had an awesome time and George made it even better. Great service and made sure we had everything we wanted, we couldn't have asked for more.

Great place to bring your family. Your kids will be intrigued by all the animatronics. Their staff like George who served us were very friendly. Their only attitude was being friendly and professional.

I went to a rainforest cafe a couple of decades ago and have many positive memories of the place. When I noticed that there was one in Clifton Hill I was super excited to share the experience with my wife. The rainforest cafe at Clifton...hill did not let me down. The atmosphere was amazing. The food came out perfect and our server George was phenomenal. He took a great experience and brought it to the next level. His timing was perfect and made dinner very special for me and my wife. We will definitely have to come back!More

When they say RAINFOREST they are not kidding my family went in and we saw 4 mice while in the restaurant my husband finished his food by that time. I lost my appetite they offered to take something off the bill no just a percentage....Then another mouse ran across the floor from the greenery, the third one was on a table I kid you not. I can only imagine how many are in the greenery is, I was waiting for them to drop out of the ceiling!!! Is there no care in the world about food safety! Can’t even imagine the kitchen!! Never will I EVER!! Go in to that establishment again gross SAVE YOUR MONEY!!More

My teen daughter and I only waited 4 minutes for our table at 6:30pm. We were pleasantly seated in the middle of the restaurant. We loved the thunder storms and animal actions. Our server was attentive, and we received our drinks and appetizers within 15...minutes. Our meal, which was shrimp tacos and steak, came 20 minutes after the appetizers. Our food was very very good, served hot and filling. Our server and even a manager came by to check up on us. Food may be a bit more expensive but you don't get to spend every day at an incredible restaurant like this.More

If it were not for the expense (spent about $100 for two people after tip and with no alcohol ordered), loved this place. Was seated very quickly, had a friendly server and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. This place would have gotten 5/5 from...me if it were not for the very high price considering the portions received.More

I forgot how dark it is, but your eyes easily adjust. The meals are big and enjoyable, I had the shrimp tacos and they were nice enough to substitute the jalapeno ranch with just ranch for me. The waiter Josh was very nice and he...told us how we could purchase some souvenir glasses. He was very thorough and everything we ordered was correct. The food was actually quite quick to coming to our table as well.More

We went to Rainforest today, and we had a great time. My children lovedit, and so did my parents in law. Also George was so kind and professional. He took the time to explain, often checked on us, and suggested cocktails, which were all good....Thank you George, you made our time there even more enjoyable!More

Unfortunately not, this is tourist trap 101. No real 'perks' other than the joy of paying :).
