I always find Rainforest Café over priced for what they offer. However, if you are a fan this location is convenient if you are visiting the mall.

Service is slow from the hostess, to server, to the cooks. This is based on a Thursday with the restaurant 1/4 full of people. Prices may be $2-4 higher than other places but you're paying for the atmosphere. Not the food type. The food here is similar to chains like Chilis, or basic places similar to that. The hostess was... More

My friend, my kids and I went to Rainforest Cafe on a Friday afternoon. When we went to check in, it took a long time (at least 3 minutes) for the hostess stationed at the front of the restaurant to find us a table. We thought maybe that it was busy, but upon entering the restaurant, we saw that it... More

My family has never been to a RFC and had bad service and Schamburg is no exception. We had a party of 9 and they quickly accommodated our group. We always like the food and at this location they incouraged the kids to walk around a see everything while doing a scavenger hunt!

We had a large group and they were able to accommodate us. The staff was quick and friendly. The food which is usually the case at Rainforest Cafes was outstanding.

This is a cool place to eat, especially if traveling with Children. The animals and the thunderstorm are a neat experience and create a great atmosphere. The Fish are dead, and the empty aquariums just bubble. The food is still plentiful, but not on par as to what it once was. Most of our dishes were over cooked, or deep... More

Absolutely horrible restaurant. More than 3/4 of the place was closed off and we still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. We then waited 45 minutes for our now cold food and 50 minutes for a round of 2 drinks. The waiter checked on us twice in all that time. Absolutely terrible service and the food was cold.... More

What a nice place to visit, and enjoy their food. As the name of this place said, it is "exotic" cafe. Good food, nice, friendly employees, make your day. It is little noisy, but, other than that 5 stars.

Had a bad experience at Rain Forest (this is not the first time) but the grandchildren always ask to go there. This time the wait was ridiculous -- for a table and then for our food. We were told three different times that our food would be up in "a couple of minutes." After waiting about 40-50 minutes, the food... More

As always we love our visit to Rainforest Cafe, the food is always great although abut pricey but we were a bit disappointed to learn that the fish in the tanks are no longer apart of the attraction. My family still loves this place and will continue to come back.
