It’s wild when the lightning starts, the animal howling, birds are calling. For the family with children, this restaurant is fun place to eat, lots of delicious food to choose from, for adults and the kids.

Great place for a family to eat with a lot of attractions and great food. My kids love this place every time we go to one out of town.

The atmosphere at the Rainforest Cafe is always the best. If you have small children who scare easily or want a restaurant well lit, this isn't for you. The food is always good and there is a large selection. A wonderful experience.

This is the second Rainforest Cafe I’ve eaten at in the past year. Both experiences left me feeling like I paid a large amount of money for mediocre food. I had the chicken Parmesan sandwich which was very tasteless. My husband had the taco salad...More

I am not sure, we didn't have reservations for the 3 of us and waited maybe 5 minutes to be seated. Go to their website and try, especially if you have a big group! Good Luck and Enjoy

I don't believe they take reservations, but we only had about a 15 minute wait on a Friday at noon. The searing capacity was bigger than I thought it would be.

Considering this is a novelty restaurant in the Mall of America, we did not consider it to be expensive. The three adults ate for about $38 and we were full!
