Entertaining but too noisy for a business supper. Food was decent. At the end of the meal, I was surmised to learn that we had purchased our beer mugs....

We had 15 people in our party. We had reservations, and we were seated very quickly after we arrived. Our waitress was very good and 15 people all left very happy with their meals. A fun place for the kids to visit!

The restaurant lacked a fun and playful culture. There is such an opportunity to make this a destination place for customers. We were seated quickly - which was great - and the server took our beverage order shortly after being seated. This was good. Once we placed our order, we didn't see our waiter again. He didn't check on our... More

RFC is one of those places we go to for the kids. In this case, they were also offering a points incentive for Landry's Select members, so we decided to plan a trip to cash in on the extra points. We've never been to the Galleria location before, so we weren't sure what to expect. It felt older/grimier than the... More

I spent part of my Birthday at the Rainforest Cafe with my son. I knew he'd love all the excitement, which would be the best bday I could have. A wonderful atmosphere for keeping the little ones engaged, great selection for food. Gift shop attached to the dining area. Lifelike animals throughout, wonderfully themed Rainforest, educational environment.... friendly staff, knowledgeable... More

Please do not go to any of these restaurants. Food is not eatable and the service is terrible, they take forever to bring your food plus my dish was cold. It is not worth it not even for the kids, the ambiance is to old dated.

We had dinner there and a large party of about 30 people and they were very accommodating. The food was very good, we all had separate checks, and the food came out pretty quickly considering the size of our group. They also were super friendly and eager to help us with our group. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and it's... More

Don't go to RFC for amazing food.... It is always just ok... But the atmosphere is wonderful for families, friends and especially children. The food is edible, but nothing to write home about :-)
