We've been the other Rainforest in Menlo Park and this one is much better. The animals actually work.

I was on my own the night I dined and just wanted some pasta to take out. When I mentioned what I wanted to the bartender (order takeout at the bar) he suggested I get the children's menu item, because it was half the price. It was plenty of food, and nice to know that they allow adults to order... More

We have been to other Rain Forest Cafes before and this one lacked a bit. The food was okay, but the problem was the service. We had a large party, but had 3 different servers. Our server seemed to have something happen with our table's ticket. It took 45 min to get our food! Our other party members were completely... More

The food was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly. Wait time went fast for how many people were there. Prices are a bit high.

My husband was celebrating his birthday and they gave us a giant lava cake for free which was very nice. My only complaint are the wait times. If you don't have a reservation be prepared to wait...

I went to the rain forest with a few people-we found the service very poor-and the prices very high for the amount of food. It is just a tourist attraction-that maybe the kids in your group would like. They have some moving stuff and fake rain- It is very dark-cant see what your eating-and after waiting on line would NOT... More

I have numerous food allergies & was able to have a delicious dinner. The chef comes to your table & will give you multiple options based on your food allergies. Plus the interior is awesome for people of all ages. The waitress was very accommodating as well 5 stars!

Great place for kids. Food was good. Had a short wait to be seated but overall it was a great experience. Located right on the boardwalk.
