We haven't been to Rainforest Cafe since before they moved. And I'm sad to say the food has gone down hill. We order a range of items. From burgers to steak and shrimp. And not one of the meals had much for flavor. Everything tasted the same, bland... Getting the waitresses attention was hard as she rarely appeared at our... More

One of my favorite places to go to in the MOA. I love going for my Birthday. The drinks are great and so is the food. Along with the fun atmosphere. A great place for kids and adults.

My family and friends and I have been going to this restaurant for years, usually around Christmas time as a special treat for the kids when we go to the Mall of America. I continue to be very unimpressed with the food and the service at this restaurant; you are truly paying for the experience. It was my intention yesterday... More

Went there early on a Friday night very short line. Got a nice and it is like eating in a jungle very different. Had local beers was nice live in the west so I like to try local beers when I can. Had a Grain Belt beer it was outstanding. The food was also fine as well.

It was fun to try once, but nothing special will bring us back. The Landry Club is a must to avoid the long lines.

The first impression was not a very good one. My wife and I thought my daughter would love this restaurant. So you are instructed to wait in line to have them take your name, to then have to wait in line again when they are ready to start taking tables. We looked in and saw at least 15-20 empty tables....

What an amazing adventure for children with life size animals moving and calling to each other throughout the meal! The food was good, just a bit pricey!

Very busy on Saturday evening, Rainforest had the shortest wait. Food was fine, but the youngest in our party of 13 was almost 15, so the noises from the Rain Forrest were kind of lost on our group. Service was good.

I grew up having my parents take me to Rainforest Cafe on trips to MOA, and I always enjoyed the experience, so I was happy to bring my 2.5 year old for his first time. It was a fun experience and worth the trip. The food is good, and I would rate a 4, but it's simply just overpriced. I... More

Pasta pretty good, nothing over the top. However, steak/rib/shrimp platter was fair at best. Steak and ribs tough and no flavor. We're not picky eaters. Awesome atmosphere though! For the price, coupled with meh food and many other choices of where to eat, will not eat here again.
