Good food and a very nice environment my kids love that place. You buy a card for rewards points to earn free food just pay $25 and get back the $25 back into your card within 24hrs.

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...

I took my daughter here, it was our 1st time eating here. It was very exciting the restaurant has an interactive experience. The prices weren't bad either.

Good family atmosphere. Went for a late lunch and the food was good. Long wait but it's in the Mall of America so that is to be expected. A little pricey but you are paying for the experience.

My family was excited to experience the Rainforest Cafe while on vacation in Minnesota. We were quickly disappointed.... :( The very young unorganized staff spent time gossiping and complaining infront of guests. No one greeted us nor made us feel welcomed. I never saw a manager or anyone over 20 years old for that matter. The food was inedible. My... More

Nice place to stop at the MOA however, the prices are high for what you get. For a family of 4-5 plan to spend around $90. I think that's high for lunch. Granted, you are paying for all the animation of animals and its great for the kids. Food is decent -- nothing spectacular.

My girlfriend had never been to a Rainforest Cafe before so we tried it out. We sat at the bar and the hickory chicken was amazing!!! The cheeseburger was also great! Theo, our bartender/waiter was awesome!

We haven't been to Rainforest Cafe since before they moved. And I'm sad to say the food has gone down hill. We order a range of items. From burgers to steak and shrimp. And not one of the meals had much for flavor. Everything tasted the same, bland... Getting the waitresses attention was hard as she rarely appeared at our... More
