Top 5 reviews of Rainforest Cafe
This was definitely a disappointing experience as far as it rainforest cafes go. The service was fine and friendly. The food was not very good. It really hardly ever is at any of the rainforest cafes. We basically go for the ambiance but this was what was extremely disappointing. None of the animals moved when it was time to. We heard all of the sounds but no movement or light show going on at... more
If it was to possible to give 1/4 of a star as a review, that would be this case. I cannot believe how rude the staff was.
