Nice location in Mall of America. . More for younger kids with animals on wall. Very pricey. My teen and I had a burger and chicken sandwich and it came to $50. Food was fair---not worth price.

We visited the Rainforest Café at the Mall of America. It was busy with a waiting list allowing us to walk around and explore. Love the alligator out front! The food was OK and the service was good. You're paying a premium for the atmosphere.

We were told the wait would be 16 minutes, but it actually took at least twice that much time. Then, after we were seated, no one spoke to us for at least 10 minutes. Our drink order was wrong (one of us ordered iced tea...More

The atmosphere is nice for kids especially if you sit near the salt water fish tank. The food is decent, but not good enough to go back if kids aren't in your group. The staff is nice, but the gift shop is overrated and cause...More

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

Considering this is a novelty restaurant in the Mall of America, we did not consider it to be expensive. The three adults ate for about $38 and we were full!
