    I had not been to Rainforest Cafe in many years. I was very excited to take my young daughter for the experience. I as disappointed to see how much it had changed. The thunderstorm part was not like it used to be. It was short and unclimactic. The food was mediocre are best. I was quite disappointed overall. Our server was really nice though.

    Rain forest cafe is always one of our favourite places to go with the kids. I find the options for kids are really good but the options for adults are limited. However, what we did order was very good. The restaurant is also very pricey. Overall kids had fun their bellies were full it was a great experience

    Server was very nice. Food delivery from kitchen was slow. Food was lacking flavour. Seasonal fruit from kids menu was not fresh. For a salad, some tacos and two kids meals the bill came to over $140. Way way overpriced

    Food was terrible and extremely overpriced. A side Caesar salad was $10, the dressing tasted like mayonnaise and it was mostly iceberg lettuce. The kids pizza looked and tasted like it was a frozen pizza. The ambiance was the only thing that kept my kids entertained (they didn’t supply colouring sheets or anything); however the thunderstorm sound scared my 4 year old.

    I understand the appeal of this place when it comes to kids however as an adult this place is awful We had a great server who made the experience tolerably but I can safely say I will not return The food along with the adult beverage selection was terrible and the prices, forget about it, ridiculous…..and yes I’m aware they jack up the prices as Niagara is a tourist trap. Just not a fan

    We were celebrating a birthday and tried to get in touch so many times about certain details including whether we could bring a cake or not and ended up carrying it a km for no reason. We finally made a reso on open table at 11:00 am because there were several indications that’s when it opened. We were contacted by the restaurant to let us know it was 12:00 pm which changed our whole itinerary. There is also a line up at the door to get in. The menu online doesn’t post prices so we were surprised to find out how expensive it was, our bill for 7 kids and 7 adults was $700. That was 6 kids meals, 3 adult meals, an appetizer platter and some beers, cocktails and kids frosties. The service was good for the most part, he could have come around more and he forgot one or two things. I had never been to rainforest cafe and was expecting a huge show of some sort but it’s a very dull rainstorm every so often. For the amount of money for what you get I would not recommend.

    Food was ok, but the children's meal was too small a portion, even for my small 5 year old. It cost us $70 for myself and a 5 year old, with only 1 drink and no dessert.

    Understaffed! 100% the one employee serving tables is running Around like a chicken with its head cut off! His service was good but we showered up at 5:55 for our 6pm reservation, didn’t get seats till 6:10 then no one came to our table till 620! Food came out at 6:50. Food was mediocre at best! Very bland! Extremely overpriced… we had to stop and get fast food right away after leaving as we were still hungry! The ambiance was cool but otherwise…. Not impressed

    Loved the atmosphere! Food was good and drinks were great! However the prices were absolutely outrageous. They don’t list the prices on the website or the menu at the front of the restaurant and $36 for a burger is unacceptable. Anyhow it’s an experience to do once and never again.

    Understaffed?? Ordered drinks and didn't get them. Overheard host say into her mic "there actually here on time"..not a nice way to start off. SOME of the food items were not made the way we ordered them. No kids bday dessert ever arrived even though we pre-ordered it. Server had to be asked to take the undelivered drinks off the bill. She was apologetic but clearly overwhelmed .

    We were in a booth and couldn’t see any of the animatronics i get that my kids are teens and maybe that’s why we were sat there but that’s why we went to NF that day. One of my kids had wings. He did not like them, I tried one and it was so overcooked/dry I had to spit it into my napkin. My taco salad was very very dry also. I could eat it. The fingers and fries were good. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. I did not mention any of this to her bc my kids would have disowned me.

    Awful, to be fair I had read the reviews and wasn’t expecting a lot. But I was still thoroughly disappointed. We only ordered one food item queso and chips. It was the worst food I’ve ever eaten at a restaurant. The chips were stale and the queso tasted like dried out cheese whiz. My kids both had special smoothies. The commemorative cups were not available so at a price tag of $11.99 and $12.99 they were far from worth it. The animatronics were incredibly unkept and dusty. I’m surprised the people sitting next to them when they moved were not getting dust and debris on their meals. We went for nostalgic reasons, but we will never go back. One queso and chips, two kids smoothies and one Pepsi $73 + If you do go despite this review be prepared for the worst dining experience ever.

    Our server was very friendly, but it was very busy. At one point we had to wait at least 5 minutes for our silverware when our food was already served. The food for everyone was terrible, not seasoned at all and very cold. And then charged $200. Wouldn’t go back again.

    The ambiance was great and perfect for a bday or celebration. Service was great. I was surprised to see the bill however, the food was average, I had high expectations and the tables were sticky. Washrooms could have used a bit more cleaning and it would be great to have some air fresheners in there. All that said, I would go back!

    The food was good and the portions were a good size. We didn’t know that dessert was not included with the kids meal, so we weren’t prepared for that. The total cost of the meal was crazy. I know this is on par with Niagara Falls, but it gets to be unaffordable for a family of 4 to go out and eat - we paid $175 for a burger, a sandwich, 2 kids meals, and pop/juice. The restaurant caters to kids, so I loved that there was a lot of things to keep them entertained and the restrooms included stools and accessible hand driers.

    We've been to several rainforest cafe locations, this was by far the worst experience. The animatronics were all broken or just didn't turn on and there wasn't a storm like there's suppose to be, the booths all had torn and duck taped seats. It was overall, very disappointing for the price you pay for food for the "experience". We definitely wouldn't go back to this location.

    My husband and I took our daughter here for her 10th birthday. We were extremely disappointed. The place was packed, and there was only one server working. He did a fantastic job, but to no fault of his own our food was horrific. My husband had fish tacos, I had the chicken parm and my daughter had pasta with mased potatoes. Our noodles were freezing and my chicken was burnt. My husband squeezed his lime to drizzle on top of his tacos and it was so dry not a drop came out. Some of the animatronics weren't working and it just seemed run down. For the price we paid for our meal, we left feeling completely ripped off.

    I made a reservation but was told they don’t participate in OpenTable. They would not accept Rain Forest Cafe gift cards because site is independent of Rain Forest Cafe. Total Scam. $30 cheeseburger is abusive. Stay away from here.
