Atmosphere is very fun, wait staff was very nice and attentive. We dined at 8 pm in February and even then the café was pretty busy. Would surely visit again!

So at 4pm on Saturday there was a long wait for a table. Upon getting seated, we ordered drinks which were a tad pricey, even though they were special drinks, it was a bit expensive. We ordered the chicken chimi-cha-chas for an appetizer. It only came with guacamole and salsa. I had to asked for ranch. After the appetizers, it... More

I love Rainforest Café! The ones in Disney are way better, but that's a different story. We had dinner here during the Winter and there was hardly anybody in there, not that this was a problem. However, the every-30-minute thunderstorm was not the greatest, it needs to be updated. The food and prices were that of what I had remembered... More

This place is visually fun- moving monkeys, butterflies,apes etc-indoor "thunder storm " plus sound effects. The waiter John was excellent as was, surprisingly so,the food. I would recommend the Rasta Pasta .

We had lunch here. The place is a chain so you know what quality you will be getting. The food was good. Nothing spectacular. The atmosphere is different. Nice comfortable lunch here.

Food was delicous, but very overpriced. They were understaffed and it took a while to place our order and have our food brought out. The ambiance is what we came for and our 2 year old daughter really loved it. We were able to walk all around the restaurant and check out every little nook. My daughter still talks about... More

Need an exotic experience, the Rainforest Café is a good option. A jungle atmosphere with high humidity, tropical flora, waterfalls, fish tanks and animated mechanical jungle animals, the Rainforest Café is your perfect destination. It's dark and thunder and lightening go off every 1/2 hour or so to sensualize the moment. There is no outdoor seating, no TVs to offset... More

Exotic surroundings and sounds. The food is tasty and the service is excellent. You can take your beer glass if you drink a 20 oz draft. They will replace your glass with a new one packed in a box.
