This cafe is an out of the ordinary place to eat. Great for kids! Our three little ones 1, 3 and 5) loved all the moving animals and the rainstorm. Caution - the pretend rainstorm could scare some children, but it doesn't last long. The food was terrific and reasonably priced for lunch. Dinner is more expensive, but worth the... More

Let me begin by saying they are very accurate with your approximate wait time. Lunch is a busy time, no ones fault that we had to wait. Make sure you download the free appetizer coupon...it's like a free $12 app...and so tasty. Our server was fantastic and very friendly. Wonderful time as a family, great food, fabulous atmosphere!

Wandering around the mall, a bit hungry and looking for something to jump out at us, we settled on Rainforest Cafe as I had never been. We approached the hostess and although there was no line, there seemed to be an obvious wait time with the strollers stacked up around. It was a minute or two before the hostess addressed... More

I would be okay paying extra for the experience and the environment if the service was top notch. However on a week day in the middle of winter when you are not busy I should not have to wait 15 minutes for a server to finally ask me if I would like something to drink. Goodness by then I had...

Our family of 5 had a late lunch here on a Saturday. Had to wait 45 minutes for a table but guess it's to be expected for a Saturday. After we were call we had to wait in another line but it only took a few minutes. It was a good 10 later when our server came over to take... More

We eat there every year when there except for last year since they moved in MOA. First off, we phoned in reservations the day before. When we arrived the line was so long, people who HAD reservations had to stand in line with the people who wanted to MAKE reservations, was ridiculous. People frustrated along with us since we HAD...
