Ate lunch here after aquarium. Just like all the rest of these restaurants. Grandson was scared of gorillas which looked somewhat demonic. Prices are somewhat high but food was good. Service was poor and waiter obviously was out smoking and smelled like it and was...More

The food was so blah!!! For a family of 4, we paid $90.86. I had a chicken wrap and fries for $14; tasted pretty good. Hubby had shrimp tacos. He got TWO for $17. Seriously? The coleslaw had no flavor. The appetizer platter was $17,...More

Our waitress was amazing, our kids loved the atmosphere. However, if you are building your trip around the cuisine, don’t. The food is good at best but not worth the cost or the wait

Went for my birthday, although turning 28, I felt like a kid. I loved it. The food, the atmosphere, everything. Cannot wait to go back again.

We had a very nice dinner here during a visit to Metro Detroit for Thanksgiving with family! The staff seated us very close to the animatronic elephants because I told them we needed kids' menus. The service was excellent, and the food was very good.

We really like the Rainforest Cafe mostly because we love the scenery and ambiance. The food is usually good but sometimes its hit or miss with the service and food. The prices are a little high on some items but some items are also large.

Love the atmosphere but their food gave me the impression it was warmed up in the microwave. Used to come on a regular basis but haven't been for like 3 years. The food was not as good as I remember. It was good, but not...More

Yes, they do! Or at least the one we visited (in July) in Auburn Hills, MI does. Not only did they have a Gluten-Free menu, they had a senior member of their kitchen staff come to our table and discuss each dish with my... More
