We've been to Rainforest Cafe in Chicago. Our kids wanted to go here but I did not enjoy it. Of course, it's loud enough on its own with thunderstorms and animal noises but add to it the CONSTANT calling of names in the bar area where we were seated of parties they were ready to seat. It was beyond obnoxious.... More

I have been going to Rainforest Cafe at various locations since I was a little girl. Coming back to the one in Disney as an adult was a real treat. Great place for cocktails and appetizers. Staff are very friendly and helpful. A little pricey but what isn't in Disney Springs ;)

I'm a fan of the Rainforest Cafe, it's a fun place to eat. Like the Rainforest Cafe back home you had a long wait to eat in the mechanical animal section of the restaurant. We had a bit of wait when getting our appetizer, mozzarella sticks, and not everyone's dinner arrived at the same time. What made the experience there... More

The food isn't exceptional, but it's tasty. My date and I were able to get a table in the Lava Lounge area overlooking the lagoon. It was nice, quiet, and more low-key than inside the actual restaurant. The service was good. The wait time was apx 20 min on a Saturday evening. Ok for vegetarians - I was able to... More

We ate here and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The sounds and the surroundings make you feel like you are in the middle of the Jungle which our kids absolutely loved. The staff are very friendly, helpful and the prices are reasonable.

We've eaten here several times over the years. Over all its a decent place. My steak was good and cooked to my liking. The coconut shrimp was tasty but could have used the usual tropical dipping space. I would have given it 5 stars but the limited menu seemed to be slightly lacking. It could just be that the newness... More

Always have a good time when we visit Rain Forest Cafe. We were checking out Disney Springs and decided to eat here. The atmosphere is always fun for kids. The wait staff was great here and the food came out quickly. The food was good.

For many people who do not necessarily want to be in the jungle inside, there is the Lava Lounge just outside to the left of the main entrance. Overlooking the Disney Springs lagoon it is a perfect place to enjoy a peaceful cocktail(s) and some great food. My wife and I go there often and order drinks and split the... More

This is a cool place. Almost like sleeping in a hammock with the insects, birds chirping and a light rain for back ground noise. There is the fact that the human element can get loud as it goes but the scenery and sounds make up for it. The prices are moderate to expensive but I feel it is worth the... More
