Both trips to the Mall of America we have eaten at the Rainforest and we will be back. My kids are basically grown, but we still enjoy the fun atmosphere. The salad with the mango is my favorite.

This place is nice and I am glad that we experienced it. This is located right next to the Crayola Experience so once the kids see this place..they will want to eat here. You can expect to pay at least $17-$25 for each entrée. The...More

My kids love the atmosphere. The waiter was very friendly. We did not have a long wait for our seats. The food was delicious and filling. My 13 year old couldn't finish his meal and he can eat everything! Everyone walked away happy!

We visited Rainforest Cafe today, and for several reasons, probably will not ever be back. The biggest issues are the quality of service and the amount of time it took to get our food. We sat down at 6:00pm, and while it was busy, it...More

Good food, good atmosphere, great service. Waitress understood that since we had 3 little kids we couldn't wait long for things - made frequent drink fill ups and kept us informed on how long till our food would be out.

The Rainforest Cafe is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. It is set up as an actual Rainforest with animatronic animals and thunderstorms going every few minutes, so the kids really enjoy the experience. The food is great and there is a good variety,...More

Absolutely awesome experience! Very cool and entertaining atmosphere. Surprisingly the food was very good! My husband can be such a critic at times regarding "tourist" traps. But he was very impressed with the quality of our food. Priced as expected for being a tourist attraction,...More

We went here knowing that it was more for our kids to have the "experience" than to have great food. The food was ok and over priced but that is at every rainforest cafe. It did take a while to find someone to seat us...More

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

I don't believe they take reservations, but we only had about a 15 minute wait on a Friday at noon. The searing capacity was bigger than I thought it would be.

Considering this is a novelty restaurant in the Mall of America, we did not consider it to be expensive. The three adults ate for about $38 and we were full!
