Though this restaurant is far from inexpensive I believe every child should get to experience this place. The animatronic animals are amazing and superb to watch. Watching the kids respond to them is also a great time. The company has created a terrific artificial forest....More

Went to Rainforest Cafe with the family this weekend and had a good time. The service was a little slow and thougg the food was good, it was expensive. The kids really enjoyed the animals and the jungle feel though.

$19.99 for Chicken Parmesan that tasted like it was reheated leftovers. It clearly just came from the microwave and was not made fresh...all the noodles that came with it were stuck together. And to compound my displeasure, I found either a piece of glass or...More

The drinks and the food were both delicious. The atmosphere was fun. It isn't inexpensive, but you will leave with a full stomach.

The food was so blah!!! For a family of 4, we paid $90.86. I had a chicken wrap and fries for $14; tasted pretty good. Hubby had shrimp tacos. He got TWO for $17. Seriously? The coleslaw had no flavor. The appetizer platter was $17,...More

Our waitress was amazing, our kids loved the atmosphere. However, if you are building your trip around the cuisine, don’t. The food is good at best but not worth the cost or the wait

Went for my birthday, although turning 28, I felt like a kid. I loved it. The food, the atmosphere, everything. Cannot wait to go back again.

We had a very nice dinner here during a visit to Metro Detroit for Thanksgiving with family! The staff seated us very close to the animatronic elephants because I told them we needed kids' menus. The service was excellent, and the food was very good.

We brought my 4yr old for lunch. Staff was ok. Took a while to get our order and we waited at least 20 min for our food. Restaurant wasn't busy so don't know why it took that long. Food was ok. Was better last time...More

Yes, they do! Or at least the one we visited (in July) in Auburn Hills, MI does. Not only did they have a Gluten-Free menu, they had a senior member of their kitchen staff come to our table and discuss each dish with my... More
