Rainforest Cafe in MGM Grand             
            
Month Visited: 09/05 - Good Meal - Lunch

Food was pricey but was of good quality. I was seated and served quickly. I like the atmosphere in the restaurant but I am still not sure if it is worth paying extra for the food. Overall it was a good experience - same as it is in other Rainforest Cafes.    16320

Advised by hostess,our party of 4 could sit at bar for faster service.
declined, told them we did not want to sit in bar area. 10 mins later, told table was ready and promptly seated in the BAR AREA, while next party of 4 behind us were directed to very nice table near the waterfall. Is it possible that because our party consisted of 4 african americans & the other party was 4 white americans that this occurred? you be the judge! we declined the bar seating and told to stand back in front of restr, while the next party behind us--also african americans--were promptly seated in the BAR AREA! when asked why we were seated at the bar area and not the nice table near the waterfall,
we were told "well, that's where she planned to sit you all"--i guess customer preference makes no difference here. We were finally seated at a decent table
but then were ignored for 10 mins, told by 1 person they would be our waitress,
and would be with us "shortly"--10 mins later, told by another person he would be our waiter, was very friendly, but disappeared at every turn for 10-15 mins
each time we asked for water, coffee, food, extra dressing for salads,etc. our waiter could be seen laughing, hee-hawing it up with other restr patrons, but ignoring our table. We were finally served by someone else, unknown who she was,never really knowing who exactly was waiting on us. The party of 4 white americans who had been seated at the nice table near the waterfall were LONG GONE, after a good meal & I'm sure prompt service. Our experience here was NOT A GOOD EATING EXPERIENCE. The only thing that kept myself & my sister from making a big fuss was our mother who just wanted to eat & leave ASAP. The Food was good, but because of the Lousy service & apparent favortism for "certain" patrons--WOULD NOT EVER PATRONIZE THIS RESTAURANT AGAIN.

We took our family there, seven of us in total. We waited quite a long time to be seated, at least a half and hour or more. I found that very difficult with a one year old. It was crowded and somewhat disorganized. The food was good, the service was pretty quick. The wait was the worst part. Also, my son saw another customer with a balloon, so I asked our waiter for a balloon, he sent a manager over, she told me that the ballons cost $2.00!!!!!! This is after I just finished paying almost $300.00 for dinner!!!!!!!!!! They can't even give toddlers a FREE balloon after spending almost a few hundred dollars??!!!!!! Unbelievable, needless to say, I think it would have been worth the free balloon (not to mention free advertising for them, us walking through the casino with a rainforest balloon, I am sure other kids would want one) That left a very sour taste in my mouth, I won't remember the decent food or alright service, I will remember how they really grind people for every last dollar!!!!!!!!!! And the balloon was really cheap, it was a small cheap helium one, it was on the ground by the end of the night, it didn't even stay up in the air.    15709

Regarding the comment about poor service from the African American customer below: I am white and had the same problem. I will never eat at this place again because the hosts and waiters act like they are doing you a favor to seat you and then take your order. While having waited for thirty minutes or so for a seat, we finally stood at the end of their LINE and waited for the table. Fifteen minutes seated and no damn waiter?? Then after complaining, were told one would be over. Still nobody. Just lousy attitude.

My only wish is that certain customers would not assume a "race" issue when the problem is obviously just crappy service!

Now that all the hype is gone for this restaurant, the wait to get in is none. On a Saturday night at 9:00 pm, my family of four was seated immediately upon reaching the hostess counter.
Service was fast and friendly. A big improvement over my previous two visits, were service was spotty and inconsistent at best.
Food is still OK, nothing that will win any awards. But when you have two teenage daughters tagging along, a huge selection of items on the menu helps out a lot.
Bottom line, if you're with your family and they are tired of the buffets, take them here, if your a couple or solo, there other restaurants better suited for you.

Good family place that had pretty good food. The food wasnt the best I had but for the low prices I would go back. Just like every other Rainforest Cafe it had the jungle seting which is always fun. Not really much more to say about the place it is worth going to and it was good food.    14689

Ate at the bar and had a very good burger and a good margarita. The food is what you would expect from a restaurant like Ruby Tuesday's or TGIFridays. The rainforest theme is fun and kids seemed to be amazed by all the animated creatures. Even if you don't eat here, check out the bar stools when you walk by, they are very funny.    11688

Very mixed feelings about this one. Atmosphere cannot be beat, gotta love the hanging vines,
trumpeting elephants and of course the rain. There is ALWAYS a line for this place, and the service
is consistently subpar. I think the only word for the food is "meh." Not great, but not terrible
either. Good place to go once.

Overall good dinner and atmoshpere. We ate there before seeing David Copperfield at the MGM and enjoyed our expeience. We had eaten at the Rainforest Cafe in Cancun before and it was about equal to the one at MGM. Good casual dinner with good atmoshpere. Service was good and price was very reasonable. The pizza was very good here, as well as the grilled chicken sandwich.    9195

The food was edible, but the service was slow to non-existant.
What really incensed me was a big bottle of FRENCH water in the
middle of the table, with a little sign that said we could have
some for $2.50. You would think that they could find AMERICAN
water to serve us.

My recommendation is that you skip this place entirely. Walk by and enjoy the scenery, which is enjoyable, but everything else is very poorly done. Seating ticket said 20 minutes but in reality was 1 1/2 hour. I didn't appreciate that because our costly vacation time could have been used better elsewhere instead of just standing there. They know how long it takes to get a seat, and they're misleading customers in the hopes they stand around and shop instead of leaving. Also didn't appreciate ordering very expensive food and having it served cold. "vegetables" turned out to be a spoonful of some mysterious rinds. Unattentive, inexperienced servers. Add all this together and this place gets a big fat F.    5885

I was so excited to go here on recommendation of a few friends. I cannot
believe my experience. It was dreadful-- It was SOOOOOOOO noisy and
packed in there. We were seated after waiting 10 minutes, which was fine.
But then it took the waitress 10 minutes to come to our table and take our
orders. After taking our orders, we waited for our food for
TWENTYFIVEMINUTES! I wanted to scream. Everyone else in the
resteraunt was in the same state as we were. Kids were crying all over
the place, the workers seemed totally confused and out of it.. On top of
it, it was the most expensive place in the entire damn city. I'll pay whatever
it takes for a NICE meal, but this just didn't exactly fit the scale. I cannot
believe how much i blew on the cheapest thing on the menu. The food
turned out to be delicious, but totally not worth what we had to go through
to get it.

We visited this cafe on our last evening of our honeymoon and we loved it. I thought the decorations were beautiful and fun, they made me feel young and hopeful. The place was full of families and groups and couples, everyone looked happy. Our server, Jenny, was very fast and efficient. She had our drinks to us in minutes after we ordered. She set us up with and appetizer that arrived promptly and took the time to make suggestions for our meals. The post roast is incredible!!! My husband had the Jambalyia sub linguini (as suggested by our server), huge portion and very flavorful. We were not able to finish either of our meals. I'd skip the appetizerzs as dinner portions are more than enough. Try the rainforest soup, it is delicious.    3563

We had to shoot off a flare to get a waitress to wait on us! The food was average. The waterfall wasn't working and the globe of the world looked like it suffered the ill effects of an alien invasion. The Rainforest Cafe theme of save the rainforest should not take precedence over a good meal with good service for a good value.    3779

Good food, terrible service. Seating was very, very, very slow and the restaurant was half empty. Salads and orders came out wrong every time - at least waiter was quick to fix. Staff and management looks confused and befuddled. My wife will want to go back for the food and atmosphere - I'll make sure I have much wine first to mellow out about the service and maybe sleep through the wait.    2527

Be prepared to waste your money. We could have gotten better service and food at McDonalds. The restraunt is expensive the food was sick. We ordered the hamburger it comes with chips and for $1.00 more you can upgrade to fries. WOW.
The waitress was rude and was nowear to be seen. She did not even ask us if we were doing ok or if we needed any thing our whole visit. The only cool thing was the MGM Grand Lion Habitat across the way. The lion helpers were more friendler then anyone in the Rainforest Cafe.

WE had a great meal - 3 times. service was a bit slow as indicated before, but the atmosphere was outstanding and the food we ordered was very, very good. If one can avoid the long lines by coming early (11:45 AM) for lunch, the wait shouldn't be long.    1158

Great atmosphere and good food screwed up by really lousy service. We've given them two chances and will only be back if friends or family insist. If you do go, keep in mind that they accept reservations. We didn't know this the first time and had to stand in line for around 30 minutes before reaching the point where they take you name to be assigned a table. From that point it was proabably another 15 minutes. The second time we made reservations and things went much smoother.

Both times the service turned out bad. It started out fine but then drinks didn't get refilled, they brought out the wrong meals, and once a meal was completely ommited. They first time they appologized and paid for our dinner, which was greatly appreciated and why we went a second time. The second time we barely got an appology out of them.

Great atomosphere for the whole family. Being from the humid/Southern part of the US, I like to go there for lunch out of the dry desert heat. It has a slight "humidity", but well air-conditioned feel to it. The food is good also and I rarely hear kids whine due to there are so many things to look at around them. I have been there 2x and had good food and good service.    1973
