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.

The staff and meal were excellent. The animatronics and thunderstorm were a suprise. Call ahead if you don't want a long wait.

Typical chain restaurant, but they are able to accommodate my sons severe peanut/tree nut allergies. Food was decent, service was slow.

We had a great experience here, but- you are definitely paying for the moving animals and storms that come through by the prices of the food. The food that we had was good, nothing to write home about. The service was excellent. But man, the...More

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.
