It's a neat restaurant restaurant for kids. That's the reason you go. My son enjoyed the mechanical animals like elephants, leopards, and monkeys. The service is very slow. The food is okay, but very pricey. I had shrimp tacos for $17. You get two tacos and lots of rice and beans. For that price, I would hope for 3 tacos.... More

Good food, it's a little pricey but the kids enjoy all the sights and sounds. Went there for our Grandson's birthday and he loved it

We were in town to meet my son and his girl friend for dinner here. We were seated right away and given menus. One of the menus had pictures with the names of the dinners, but there were no prices on the menu. I have never seen anything like that before. I am not poor by any means, but I... More

We went as your daughter wanted to....should have taken her tablet away as you hardly looked up from it. The food has improved, but still can think of many better places to go. They need to update the entertainment as most is outdated. Our server did a good job...which was nice as I hadn't expected that.

This is a fun place for the kiddies to go and see the movable and noise making animal statues (elephants, apes, etc). It is not a place to go if you are looking for good food, good prices, or anything like that. It's in the Katy Mills Mall so you can figure that out for yourself. Be prepared for a... More

Rainforest Café is a fun-filled, imaginative place where the animals come to life every 10 minutes or so. Children will enjoy the all encompassing interactive experience while dining on classic kid favorites. Word of caution: Be careful with youngsters under the age of 3 or 4, I've seen some have complete breakdowns when the elephants and gorillas start roaring -... More

We celebrated a friend's birthday with dinner on a Saturday night. The wait was about 10 minutes. We sat at a 4 top under the large pink butterfly. We had a new server, who was understandably deliberate, and very kind. The manager checked on us regularly. We tried assorted appetizers and entrees, which all met our expectations. Very large Texas... More

I have eaten at several Rain Forest Cafe's in Florida, which I enjoyed, so while visiting Texas and out shopping we stopped for lunch. We had my twin 5 year old grandchildren who love animals with us. We went on a Sunday. Not too busy. We were seated promptly but that was the last prompt anything. Service was very slow.... More
