Food at Rainforest Cafe is good, but a little pricey. Portions not always generous. But it is a fun restaurant and kids of all ages enjoy it. My teen picked it for a 16th birthday dinner. They did bring a skimpy cupcake and sing a...More

Took the kids for lunch and was disappointed with quality of food. Prices were very high. Service was good but kitchen staff needs some work. I suggest skipping and head to one of the many better restaurants at MOA.

We have made it a tradition to stop here when traveling thru Minneapolis since our kids were toddlers. Always a fun stop. I had heard they removed the mister and aquariums since we last visited, which was a bummer. However, there is still thunder and...More

The restaurant is very cool and fun for kids. The food was alright and pricey! I have been to several rainforest cafes and this is the worst food out of all of them.

Yeah I admit, I visited because I wanted to show my 6 year old daughter the Rainforest Cafe. The restaurant was very busy (we weren't around 4pm) but we got a table right away. The workers have a very smooth system when it comes to...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!
