“Cool Experience”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

This was my second visit to Rainforest Cafe. The atmosphere is worth the trip alone especially when a thunderstorm rolls through the diningroom. I will say that I was disappointed by the service on this visit. We waited to be seated and then waited for our server several times, with no explanation. When we did receive our order it was good food, but we were there a long time for lunch (1.5 hours). Not how you want to spend your time in downtown Disney.

“Cut down this Rainforest”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Why did we even bother?? Shouldn't have listened to the kids..what do they know anyhow?! There were hardly that many people in this place believe it or not, yet we waited 1 hour to get our food and when it finally did come,2 orders were wrong. The kids mac and cheese was disgusting with hard pieces of pasta..really..the Caesar salad looked like someone or some-thing threw it in the dish with their eyes closed and forgot the dressing,,tasteless and very small, pizza was small,salmon was salty and had freezer taste..all around it was not good...Don't waste your money in this place its very expensive and not worth it at all...really.

“Going downhill”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Have been to this one before and it was exccellent not this time. Had a Disney reservation still had to wait about 20 minutes then got seated near kitchen so had a constant breeze going by, which we did not enjoy and the place was not filled. Food was very expensive and not that good. Atmosphere was ok have been to a lot nicer Rain Forests in CT.

“Typical Chain”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The Rainforest Cafe at Downtown Disney is no different than other Rainforest Cafes at a mall. Skip the chain and go for a Disney exclusive.

“The service was great!!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

They used to be in Vienna, VA and I wish they never left so I knew the place would be packed and it was, so I sat at the bar.
The person behind the bar was very attentive and he gave such great service not only to me, but to a family sitting at the bar who was from out of this country....very patient, repeating the order so they understood what was ordered...everything. You want that here where the lightning and thunderstorms can create some missed words......so, great service!!!!! Great food!!!!
