The expectations were not too high for this restaurant. It is a chain that is getting tired and needs some updating. It might appeal to the youngsters but adults have to be tolerant with the tacky process. On this visit our service was awful and the food was just what we expected. Sorry but this will be our last visit... More

While I have eaten at the Rainforest Cafe in Chicago and Schaumburg, Illinois I decided to take my husband because he had never eaten there. The service with Ryan was exceptional. He was absolutely great! The atmosphere was exceptional. My husband was both impressed and amazed at the actual rainforest, the moving stuffed animals and the aquariums. The place was... More

If you have kids this is a fun place for lunch or dinner. Call ahead reservations are a great option as this place gets busy on the weekends. Ask to sit by the gorilla or elephants if possible. Every 15 mins or so the animals come alive. Service is good and so are the mixed fajitas.

What a fun way to eat lunch !! Once the animal started moving and making noises it felt like I was in an actual jungle. Amazing !! The waitress was great she kept checking in on us - I had the fish and chips.

We stopped into the Rainforest Cafe to get lunch with our children. We were seated promptly and in a nice spot to see the animatronic animals. The atmosphere is very nice and perfect for restless children. My kids were busy coloring their menus and watching the animals move. The only disappointment was the thunderstorm never occurred and that's usually my... More

You don't really go for the food, it is about the atmosphere and experience. The kids love it and there is a lot to see and hear. May be overwhelming for some kids but the worst thing is the wait. Bring your patience and try to avoid peak hours. they will give you a buzzer to let you know when... More

The setting is great, the fishes swimming by you while you are eating, the jungle sounds and the surprise appearance of animals all adds to this one of a kind experience. A comfortable place to eat their great food and with the excellent staff makes this a "must go to place". Have fun while you fill up on good food... More

This is one of those places that creates a theme and feeling from its decor to their staff. They have it half right on our visit. The atmosphere is what is to be expected at a Rainforest Cafe. The server we had was not suited for this position. He was a bit off the wall in his behavior and a... More
