We took our youngest grandson to Rainforest Cafe. The staff was friendly and helpful. The manager went out of his way to help us get our Landry's card activated and working. The food was good. The servings were really generous. The hamburger was great! The atmosphere is cool because of the sights and sounds.

We have been to other rain forest café's and decided to go with the kids while in Katy. The other cafés I've been to were nothing special, but for some reason this particular restaurant was fabulous! Everything was extremely clean, the food was surprisingly fresh and delicious. Staff was somewhat slow, but it was a busy time so that's understandable.... More

Service very slow. Food stodgy & unappetising. One of our party of 7 had to wait some time before she could start as the 3 separate components of her meal weren't served together so had to wait until eventually served one at a time. Noisy Rainforest gimmicks soon pall. May be OK venue for children's party but wouldn't eat at... More

I think this is the last sit down restaurant at this mall so decided to eat here for lunch. It was Monday during lunch and it was not very busy where only another party was here eating. The experience here at this location is not as good as the one in Galveston. It's always fun to browse the store before... More

We have taken our grandchildren for their New Year's celebration. Lots of fun for the little kids. Food was good but expensive. Everyone had a good time so it was worth it!

We arrived at about 11am on a weekday so it was nice and quiet. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. The thunder and lightning happened every 20 to 30 minutes and the animatronic animals truly gave it a Rainforest feel.

It's a neat restaurant restaurant for kids. That's the reason you go. My son enjoyed the mechanical animals like elephants, leopards, and monkeys. The service is very slow. The food is okay, but very pricey. I had shrimp tacos for $17. You get two tacos and lots of rice and beans. For that price, I would hope for 3 tacos.... More

We were in town to meet my son and his girl friend for dinner here. We were seated right away and given menus. One of the menus had pictures with the names of the dinners, but there were no prices on the menu. I have never seen anything like that before. I am not poor by any means, but I... More
