This place had great food, but we waited almost 3 hours to eat, so by the time we got there we were STARVING. It was my daughters birthday, so once we were finished, it also came with a hefty price tag of $150 before tip....More

2 1/2 hours of waiting time for a table! That pretty much says it all. People was leaving this place being frustrated... Avoid!

The food is good and what's expected from the franchise. The service was also good. The wait times can be a bit much if you attempt to dine without a reservation. We arrived 10 mins before the reservation and still waited about 15-20 mins.

Food and server were great, once we finally got seated. I had a 7:15 pm reservation and it was beyond a hot mess to get seated and finally we got seated by almost 8pm. We wont be going back but happy we did it once.

My kids wanted to go back. It's a fun place to go to because of the cool interior decor. Kids went on a scavenger hunt. The food is decent but nothing to write home about. We used our Disney Dining Plan.

We went here for our kid because yes, the atmosphere is cool. She enjoyed all the sights and sounds of the rainforest. Like other RF cafes, the food is mediocre at best and expensive. Service was friendly, but slow. I did not get the glass...More
