But just like any Vegas restaurant, the prices are much higher than other Rainforest Cafes. It's a cool atmosphere with the mechanical animals, rainforest sounds, and storms. It's actually great for kids too. Food is good and drinks are good, but the price just doesn't match. BUT the chocolate lava cake is AMAZING!
Too much junk and slow service. there were about 12-14 people altogether in our party and we had to spend two hours, 1,5 out of it - waiting for food. And it is too much junk. Not very good quality. All I liked was the scene
This cartoon jungle is a child's wonderland, with waterfalls, swinging monkeys and a canopy of faux flora and fauna..
While waiting for a table, hungry diners prowl the retail village, where cash-register ka-chings compete with chirping birds, roaring lions and chest-thumping gorillas. When the lights start to flicker, never fear--thunderstorms are part of the show. The menu is American comfort food--pastas, burgers, pizzas and salads--served with a tropical flair. There are plenty options that the kids will recognize, but enough novelty to keep the parents happy.
fun atmosphere. This restaurnant is simlair to Red Robin in terms of noisiness, kids, and food options, but not as tasty. I've eaten here twice and the food is ok. It's not super flavorful and not well priced for what you get. However, the atmsophere is pretty fun with the cheesy animal decor,and the thunderstorms are fun to watch. If you're looking to redeem MGMfood credit, don't use it here though. Mgm will only credit for restuarnts they own, which apparenly doesn't include this one. Overall, it ok.
Great food, good variety..
The food was great! We had a shrimp pasta dish, paella (OMG!), and bananas Foster. The service was good and friendly, maybe a bit rushed. The food was fresh and plentiful....the entrees were a bit too much for one person to eat and we didn't even have an appetizer, plus, we can both eat! Because the entrees were delicious, we forced ourselves to have dessert, predicting that it would be great, besides, we deserved a treat. Good thing we shared the dessert.
Aquariums are a nice feature.
About the only possible con is that this is not the place for those who are looking for a quiet relaxing place to eat............there were a lot of kids there and making a lot of noise, on top of the jungle noises and rain/thunderstorm.
I would definitely dine here again.
novelty. This place is a novelty inside the MGM Grand. We ate there before seeing Ka. The service was good, and the environment stole the show. It's easy to watch the fish tanks, or the little animations that certain animals make throughout the dining area, but the food was just ok. I probably got my fill the first time I went and will not go back.
Cute place. Despite the fact that we have a Rainforest at home, we decided to go here for dinner in Vegas. Overall a cute place with fun ambiance. We liked the thunderstorms every half hour or so. Service was slightly sketchy, though, and the food all seemed to come out at once. It didn't help that the table was super mini when all that food came out. Not sure if I would go back anytime soon, but it was fun nonetheless. Good frozen drinks.
The restaurant certainly looked and sounded like a rainforest complete with lightning, thunder, and animal sounds. Unfortunately, the sounds were so loud that we could hardly carry on a conversation at our table. The noise was too intense for my easy going 4 year old.
The food was average comparable to other family-oriented menus. We ordered calamari and were disappointed when it arrived looking very crumbled on the plate. The flavor was good but the pieces were so tiny it looked like we were served other diners' crumbs. The rest of the food we ordered was okay but slightly over-priced.
Our server was very inattentive and seemed to disappear for long periods of time. We waited over 25 minutes to be served our drinks. It was disappointing.
FAR from great!. The food here was pretty good, the BBQ chicken pizza really hit the spot. The atmosphere is a little overwhelming, but I suppose it achieved what they were going for. The service I received, however, was horrible. The waiter was inattentive and spent most of his time watching the basketball game at the bar instead of serving us. They never brought the salad my girlfriend ordered but they made sure it got on the bill. The management did apologize, but I doubt I'll ever return! The worst service I've ever had in Vegas!
Make a reservation!. I had a party of 13 and decided to call ahead, when we go there I was glad I did because there was a long line waiting to get in. We we're seated immediately and they made extra room for my extra guest. The waiters were friendly and efficient, the drinks large and the food good. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the portions were huge. I didn't find the prices that execissive compared to the rest of Vegas. The decor is a bit tacky though kids will love it and it's fun for a one off thing. There are animatronic jungle animals and every half hour a simulated thunderstorm. It's a bit loud and chilly inside the restaurant but we still had a good time.
