The food isn't the best, the wait for the ambience is often ridiculous and I have not found the staff super friendly.

It is a interesting cafe. The atmosphere is a African rainforest, with thunderstorms. With animated wild animals. The service is very good. It is in the same reward point system as Landry's BBQ. It is a fun place to take young children.

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.
