It's an experience if you have never been. It is very expensive. The food is good. They really try to sell you on the ride and other products they have. I would say you need to try it at least once.

The food was great and the staff was so friendly and prompt with our order and other needs while we ate there.

At the request of our youngest daughter, we had supper at the rainforest cafe. We anticipated the regular... burgers and fries, however, We were amazed at the diverse menu. We each tried a different entree and were extremely pleased. Our meals were cooked to perfection and the taste was spot on! The staff was very entergetic and friendly. Even though the atmosphere is geared to the younger generation, the meals make it a must for the adults! Two thumbs up from this family.

Huge portions, good food - the spinach dip starter is a shared meal-comes with 4 portions of each item! Fun, interesting place. Only downside is that it is incredibly noisy. Background noise coupled with number of people in restaurant, you cannot easily have dinner conversation. Exercise patience with waiting staff :)

Ate here on a Tuesday night at around 8 pm. It was still extremely crowded with a 45 minute wait time. Decided to sit on the patio with no wait. Did not see inside the restaurant, but the bar area was cute with animal bar stools. There was loud music coming from near the street. Seemed too loud. Waited about 10 minutes for a waiter after seated. Then waited about 30 minutes for food to arrive. Food was hot when it arrived. Silverware was placed in a pile on napkins in the middle of the table. I had a burger and it was a huge piece of meat, 1/2 pound I would guess. It was a good burger, but way to much. Waiter was inattentive and had to be flagged down for refills and the check. This seems to be a great place for kids, but I would not go back. Parking was limited. It was right next to the Hilton and their signs said for their guests only and towing was enforced. Don't know if anyone ever checked, but I did not want to take the chance. I'm not an old fuddy duddy, but my kids are grown and I would have preferred a nice restaurant without all the fluff.
