    Poor service, extremely slow even though there appeared to be lots of staff. The decor needs refurbished. All props/decor in need of dusting and updating. Tears in some of the animals fur, some animals not functioning properly. The food was mediocre at best especially for the price. Unfortunate! Used to be a favorite destination.

    Our server Kayla was amazing! She anticipated everything, and was ready as soon as I asked for it. The food fit exactly what my kids wanted, and they are very picky. My food was stellar, and I couldn’t have asked for better. The whole staff did an excellent job making me and my kids feel welcome, and also made my youngest birthday the best she had. We didn’t even leave before I was asked when can we come back. Thank You Rainforest Cafe!

    We waited an extremely long time for silver ware. Everyone was done beating before a kids meal arrived. Items were missing. It was slow and painful. We also made reservations weeks ago and had a horrible table not near any animals.

    I would like to place a complaint against our hostess at Rainforest Cafe, Opry Mills. For context, our reservation was for Saturday September 10, at 6:30 The hostess’s name was Cynthia. We have been to Rainforest Cafe several times and of course to many other restaurants from upscale to fast food, never have we encountered such rudeness. From the moment she took our first drink order, we felt that we either needed to leave or ask for another server, but we did not want to make a scene, especially not with her as she was confrontational and aggressive every time she approached the table. For example, if we did not hear what she said due to the loud noises in the restaurant, she answered by “you’re not listening to I just said” with an angry face as if we were disciplined or that we were burdening her with our order or questions. We asked for extra napkins that come 15 minutes later, she placed them at the table with her back turned to us, with no words uttered. Same with the drinks that came late, she placed them in the middle of the table without looking at us or saying a word. The finale came when she was explaining how to bring the receipt to the front desk to get the signature drink glasses. My husband was looking at the receipt as she was explaining, she addressed him very rudely: “look at me, I’m talking to you, are you listening”. Additionally, she never said thank you, my pleasure, how is the food, apologize for the late drinks, not a single word of hospitality was ushered nor a smile given. As others, we dine out to have a good time not to be reprimanded by an angry waitress, not sure if her problem was with us or with being unhappy at her job, but she is one who definitely should not be put in contact with customers. We did not enjoy our stay, nor the food, and left very disappointment and almost humiliated by her. Unfortunately, this was the worst dining out experience we’ve ever had.

    I find rainforest to be very nostalgic. I used to come when I was younger. The food isn’t amazing for the price but the experience is usually always fun. It was clean and the staff was great.

    It was okay. The server dumped our chips on the table and never brought us any fresh ones. No refills provided. We were there to celebrate a birthday and they forgot to help us celebrate. It was odd and it spoiled our visit. They could have done much better.

    Our waitress was really nice and food was good. I was upset because I had reserved online and put we had two birthday boys on the ticket. I had to remind them about it before we left. They only brought one cupcake out and sang to my youngest. It was an honest mistake but could tell it hurt my 9 year olds feelings. I was a waitress for years and realize stuff happens. It’s always busy in there but hoping it’s a lesson learn to always check ticket twice.

    My daughter went to celebrate her 18th birthday. The food came out cold and the service was terrible. They were very rude. The manager was very nice and tried his best to make things right, but it was not a fun birthday experience for her and her teenage friends. Money would have been better spent elsewhere!

    Our waitress was great but she forgot to fill up our drinks and she felt like she was in a rush most of the time. We felt a little rushed and passed over. The food was mediocre for the price for sure. My kid turned nine and enjoyed herself there. I just wish the food was better for the price.

    The food was good but the service was some of the worst We’ve ever had. It was extremely frustrating. Never got checked on. Had to ask other servers for things we were missing and got one drink refill as we got our checks that had to be changed as well because they were wrong.

    Overall a nice experience. We had to wait a while ( about 40 minutes) last our reservation time to be seated even though we booked online and checked in on time. When we were seated, our table was in an undesirable location but we were switched to a booth without any issues when we asked for one. The food came out in a timely manner and tasted good. The waitress was polite and we weren’t rushed at all. The prices are reasonable and the portions were big. Everyone in our party was happy with the food and left full. Would definitely recommend. Just be warned it can get crowded so even with a reservation you may have to wait.

    We celebrated our grandson’s third birthday here. Great choice for an energetic little boy. Four adults and two children under 5 should be able to dine for less! It was quite costly…the food was good, yet nothing we could not have purchased elsewhere for less.

    It was ok. It would be nice if the servers or bus people knew how to clear the table before a birthday dessert comes out or at all ever. Also would have been nice if they wrapped the glass souvenir glasses so they don’t break. Salmon undercooked, nice decorated ambiance though.

    A money trap that never delivers. This was a painful experience. Poor service with a server who was very disinterested in her job; a $19 hamburger plate (outrageous prices); "Complimentary photo" was a sham and a waste of our time. The photo was an extremely low grade 1.5" print. Facial recognition wasn't even possible in this complimentary photo. An actual 4x6 print that they were trying to sell us was $20. It was such a joke that left us all shaking our head at the gesture. My kids love the animals and decor, but that's where the love ends on this restaurant.
