Really had a great Korean spicy BBQ dinner tonight. Pretty packed house but the service was quick and very welcoming. I will come back try this again.

We were very disappointed with the service. It took 2 hours to receive our food, we still had to ask the server for utensils and the table was not wiped off when we sat down. There were empty tables despite long line ups even with a reservation.

This restaurant is all about atmosphere. You will pay a lot to dine here but it is a fun experience with kids. It is loud, especially when the thunder and animal sounds erupt. Our waiter, Darren, was very friendly and helpful. I had the Korean Stir Fry. It was quite spicy, as Darren warned me. I think the food for... More

Went with family. Had looked at menu on website but was disappointed when i got there and they did not have the same items. On top of that, service was slow; it was not even peak time. Waitress seemed annoyed when i asked it they had other items other that the ones listed on the menu ( like a lot... More

Really good non alcoholic drinks, refreshing on a hot Florida day! They make you wait to be seated, in order to increase sales in gift shop, annoying when empty tables are clearly seen Atmosphere, is fun, but loud! A little dark which makes it difficult to read the menu. Pricey in the end.

I've been to the Rainforest Cafe a few times and it's just super blah. With some many options in Disney Springs, you can do better. That being said, the ambiance and the decor are outrageous. It truly is a sensory experience more than anything. Your kids will probably find it incredible so maybe one night of not-very-good-food is worth it.... More

As a single person you would have thought I would get in rather fast but I waited 45 minutes to get in for lunch. I eat here in 2015 and the food was rather good but its sliding in my opinion. The only thing is the tee shirts you can buy in their store.

I just went and ate here a few days ago. I enjoy these types of places. Although T-Rex is much cooler. Its a beautiful atmosphere with the jungle theme and aquariums. The food is what you would expect. It wasnt great, but I wasnt expecting a 5 star place. Its fun to bring kids here or big parties. Overall I... More

Not a great experience and definitely don't recommend eating here. Long wait that culminated with a very average meal (variety of entrees, none of which were great), disappointing Service (our Server apparently left halfway through our meal and multiple people covered for him), and all at very high prices. They did have a separate Gluten free menu that was helpful.... More
