“A bit pricey, but a fantastic experience for the whole family!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

It's a fantastic experience that the entire family will enjoy! The food is not really worth the price, but you're not paying for the food really at this type of Restaurant. You're paying for the whole dining experience and the surroundings.
The food is always "above average", but not spectacular. The service is always excellent, the food arrives hot.
If the price wasn't so high, it might of received 5 stars

“over priced for quality of the food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

You are paying for the thunderstorms and the giant fish tanks not the food. The quaility was okay at best and the entrees were about 30% more than they should be.

We likely will not bother returning and won't recommend.

“Fun atmosphere over crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

We have been here many times and we do enjoy the atmosphere but this place is packed! I made reservations for my daughters 7th bday I had 2 adults and 5 kids. We still waited a little over 30 minutes to be seated. Once seated it took another 15 minutes to even be acknowledged. We were so close to the other tables chairs kept bumping. Took forever to get check.

The girls did enjoy the experience and I do think the prices were very reasonable. Fun experience but don't expect great service.

“Good family restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Apart from them giving our table away to someone who said they were us, this was a great experience. They quickly rectified the situation and found us a table. Service was quick and food was good, even though they were very busy.

It is very noisy though and you do sit close to your fellow diners. Lucky for us with a 7 month old, our neighbours were very tolerant.

“A fun place to take the kids for a meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

We enjoyed exploring the Rainforest Cafe with our grandchildren while waiting for a table to be available. Our food was tasty and fairly reasonable. We have visited the Rainforest Cafe in Florida and were a little disappointed with the animals and animation in Anaheim, but our little ones enjoyed it.
