Celebrated my grandson’s 2nd birthday there, just a few weeks ago, and we couldn’t have had more fun! Great atmosphere for the kids, tasty food and drink for the adults, and topped off with the volcano cake, it couldn’t have been better.

Food is expensive, service was horrible and overall the food wasn’t that good for the price. $80 for our family of 6. The atmosphere was amazing and kids loved that, which made for a relaxing meal. Just wish it was better.

I have been here a few times and yes it’s really a cool restaurant; however I have never been really impressed with the food and on top of it it’s rather spendy I think. I had a barbecue wrap, 3 kids meals, and mozzarella sticks...More

It's a clever themed chain restaurant that delivered food slowly in a space with ear painful background noise. My young daughter enjoy the meal but also found the decor and thematic soundtracks disturbing.

I went here with a group of friends! It was a great atmosphere, but this place is more for younger kids and families! But I enjoyed the avocado burger, it was delicious and the waiter was fast to get our food!

Sometimes experience type restaurants or themed places don't have good food but that was not the case with Rainforest Cafe. We were very pleased with our food.

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!
