    The food was delicious and the drinks good, although there was no margaritas because of, if I remember correctly, there was no blender that day, but my beer was good. We had 2 kids meals also and the kids enjoyed everything, especially the “ decor” of the restaurant.

    The service wasn’t as good as expected BUT it could have been due to staffing issues but I’m not sure. Lucky for us the food was great!!! How the food came out was odd……. Kids food came roughly 30min after ordering then the app about 10min later and then our entrees again about 10min later. But it was for the kids and they enjoyed it. We def plan on giving it another chance.

    We went as a group of 7 with a reservation. 3 kids, 4 adults. We ordered our drinks, which came nice and quick. Then ordered our food, which then became an issue. The 3 kids meals came out 10 minutes after ordering, the manager delivered and walked off. We noticed no one had utensils to eat with, and there was no one around to ask. We waited a couple minutes at most and then took some from an unseated table. Another 20 minutes passes and the server comes by to tell us our meals would be 5-10 minutes longer. We order another round of drinks and then dessert for the kids About 30/35 minutes after the kids received their meals out meals came out. Except for a salad. We see our drinks up on the service window, but 5 minutes later they haven't been picked up and we still don't have the salad. We ask an employee (host) as he walks by if he can grab our drinks he says he can't. We also ask for the manager so we can get the salad. Manager comes by and we are still waiting for the salad. He apologizes for being the kids food so early. We eventually get the salad, and drinks. The manager did comp two kids meals, but then we saw were were charged for 4 souvenir glasses which we didn't order, and had to have those taken off as well. We were sat at 7:45, kids were finished eating at 8:15, our meals arrived around 8:45 and we weren't able to get out of there until 9:30. The food was good, problems were addressed it just was not a experience I would recommend. This was not any of ours first experiences at Rainforest Cafe, we all lived near one for years and have been to many others. This was hand down the worst experience at any RC location.

    My meal consisted of shrimp and fish. Vegetables were lukewarm, seafood had a bland taste and dish overall was nothing to write home about- I didn't even finish it. Went there for the experience and atmosphere and would not return if it was based solely on the food.

    Dinner was subpar. Nothing special. Service was slow. It was 15 minutes after being seated before we waitress came. I didn’t feel it was over crowded either. We ordered everything at that point. We sent back appetizers, as they weren’t as described.

    Short on wait staff. Our waiter was also bartender so we didn’t get great service. In his defense we tried but can’t expect him to do both. Waited over an hour for our food.

    Disappointing Experience at Rainforest Cafe. My visit to Rainforest Cafe was unfortunately far from impressive. The most appealing aspect of the restaurant was its decor, which successfully creates an interesting and immersive rainforest ambiance. However, the food and drinks were a letdown. Both lacked in flavor and quality, falling short of what one would expect from a themed dining experience like this. While the concept and atmosphere of the restaurant have great potential, the culinary aspect needs significant improvement. Based on my experience, I cannot recommend this restaurant for those seeking a satisfying meal.

    Service was extremely slow. We had to wait 30 minutes for an appetizer to arrive at the table. No plates were given so messes were made as this was a cheese dip. Other than that it was a good experience, and we left happy.

    I made a reservation for 5.45 but came at 5.15 and we were situated right away. The table was next to waterfall as I asked, the service was great and the food very good. We ordered chicken wraps for appetizer and it was delicious. For main course I had pork on the bone. Huge portion with mushed potatoes and carrots. The meat was great and juicy, had to take half home. Overall it was great experience.

    Haven’t been there in many years. Used to go with our kids and now went with grand nephews. Most of the rainforest stuff was either broken or turned off. Mostly just flashing lights, a little thunder sound. Gorilla didn’t move. Elephant moved but no elephant sound. Sad. No fish in the huge fish tanks. A disappointing visit if you know what it once was. Service was awful. Came right away to take drink order and then food order but never saw them again the rest of the night. No water refills, couldn’t get a fork. No clearing the table. Food was decent but worth about 2/3s the price. The $39 items should be $29. Etc. If you’ve never been there you might like it. If you remember the good old days, don’t go back!

    The kids enjoyed the surroundings and the meals were good. We had a child who has severe food allergies and the chef came out to hear about them. Thank you! It is on the expensive side but you get an interesting experience with your meal.

    The Mojo Bones were fall off the bone and packed that BBQ experience that slaps you up side the head good. A 4.5 all day. The Anaconda Pasta with shrimp was okay. Was very heavy on the tomatoes and the zucchini looked like it had randomly been cut by a machete as there wasn’t a single uniform cut. Overall I would give it a 3, but I’ll definitely choose a different item next time. The service was great, but whoever was working the merch counter was not only less than helpful but outright rude. It caused the whole experience to be less than what we have grown to expect from the Rainforest brand.

    I feel Landry’s is neglecting this location. A lot of the animatronic animals were not working, their menu needs an update for the available souvenir glasses, their ICEE machine wasn’t working according to our waiter, and our waiter had a thick international accent which made it difficult to understand (I was sitting right by him too). We come to celebrate two August birthdays and have decided (my friend, her husband, and myself) we will go elsewhere from now on to celebrate. The thrill is no monger there.

    Our group of 6 was seated promptly with a reservation. Our appetizer platter was mediocre and over-priced. One of our party of six did not receive her main course. The server made up an excuse about the kitchen separating a hot entree from cold entrees. Server needed to return to provide silverware and appetizer plates. It took 20 minutes to receive our drink order. Overall, not an enjoyable dining experience.
