    The chef comes to the table for any food allergy and is very knowledgable of dos and don'ts. They offer baked fries and can accommodate many of there dishes.

    We ask the waitress about GF options. She was nice but not knowledgable. She suggested the chicken. She went back a couple times to the kitchen. One chef on duty so manager came over. Both of them had asked if we were celiac. I responded no but we do not eat anything that has gluten in it. The manager mentioned his daughter was celiac. He was helpful but the menu was light with options for our kids. We ordered hotdogs-no buns, steamed veggies, french fries using a dedicated GF fryer and two of the china chopped chicken salad. We were assured this was a GF option. Even the dressing and rice noodles. They delivered our salads with a huge piece of bread on the top of the salad and the hot dogs came snuggled in their buns. We sent the hotdogs back. Partly out of principal. The manager returned with new plates-no buns. We ate and paid...the bill was 70+ dollars! Btw just waters..no drinks. 30 minutes later soar thoughts and headaches. Normally if we have a small amount of hidden Gluten or trace amount we are ok. Not this time-We got glutenized. I cant help think of what a disaster it would have been if we were celiac. Sad that perhaps it wasn't as important to avoid cc because we weren't. The feedback from manager was they are working in GF menu and GF noodle sub for thinks like pasta and mac n cheese. Lets hope a higher level of GF training for staff and kitchen come with it.

    My kids always want to eat here for their birthdays, and the food is pretty lame, but I have survived on some plain chicken that they grill up for me every time. It's not terrible, but it's not worth the price we pay. But, I go because my kids have a ball and I end up taking the pictures while everyone else eats their huge volcano cake without me. I think they are lame for not having a gluten free menu because it makes me feel like a dork for having the chef come out and talk to me, but at least that ensures I'm not going to get sick.

    The manager came the table to ensure the order was done correctly . If you go look at the menu and decide what you want l, then tell the manager what you exactly want on your plate. Like I ordered the Journey combo. I asked for grilled chicken, lettuce and avacado. No bread... The chef came out to insured the quality of his skills. That was wonderful

    They need to have a GF menu! Yes, the chef will come to your table but that is time consuming. The server was not very knowledgable at all, recommending the tomato basil wrap. Bread came on my salad anyway. Not impressed.

    The Rainforest Cafe doesn't have a dedicated gluten free menu, but the chef comes to your table to tell you what is gluten free. After explaining to me what dishes I could eat, the chef personally took my order on a special "allergy alert" notepad. I ordered steak, rotisserie chicken, wild rice, and French fries. It was such a luxury to eat French fries as they are fried in a separate fryer. I have Celiac Disease, and I did not get sick after eating at the Rainforest Cafe.

    They don't actually have a gluten free menu but they have the chef come to the table. He and I discussed options and we settled on a flat iron steak, grilled shrimp and mashed potatoes. They offered me a flourless chocolate cake and a GF cheesecake for dessert but I was full so I didn't try them. The food & service was really good.

    They do not have a dedicated gluten free menu but if you mention it to the server they accommodate you. The kitchen manager himself will come out and personally tell you what is safe to eat and he even brings out the food to you. My boyfriend and I shared the spinach artichoke dip which itself is gluten free but the chips are not so the chef said he could bring me potato chips which tasted just fine! Then we shared the rotisserie chicken with mashed potatoes and coleslaw, all gf and delish! The chef was super nice and accommodating. Only reason I went 4 stars is because after I told the waitress of my sensitivity she didn't spend much time at the table since the chef served us.

    Food was good, portions were generous. We had the nachos for our appetizer and my wife had grilled shrimp and mashed potatoes for her entree. There are two different gluten free desserts, however we were too full to try them.

    Your GF choices in downtown disney, aside from some red meat choices are Tuscan chicken with mashed potatoes, shrimp skewers without butter sauce or rice (mashed potatoes instead) or salmon on top of potatoes with veggie side. French fries can be baked to be gluten free as well.

    Chef came out and spoke to me himself. He told me everything I can have and made me feel very comfortable with his knowledge. They also have a designated fryer! Yay! I ordered the bacon cheeseburger (it came to me as a burger without a bun but that's okay!) and French fries. It was huge and delicious. I was too full for dessert but they have three options. The chef said the creme brûlée is the best. Anyways. Definitely recommend. Great experience

    What a disappointment! We went here 6 yrs ago, & had the most amazing experience! This time, not so much. They didn't hv half the GF menu they did 6 yrs ago. Almost everything we asked for, they said they couldn't make GF? Tortilla chips? Can't be made GF at Disney? My daughter got a burger on a GF bun, only ate 2 bites. I got a turkey sandwich on GF bread w/ potato chips. It was sub par, & pricey.

    The wait-staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free, celiac and cross contamination. They don't have a separate menu but they can tell you exactly what on their menu is gluten free or what things they can easily change to accommodate you. They are also very patient when they have to go verify an item is gluten free for you. I had the guacamole burger (no bun) and it was fantastic!

    We have eaten here with our daughter who is gluten intolerant. They do NOT have a gluten menu, however the chef is very accommodating and each time has made her a very good meal. You must be extra careful and specifically mention the allergy, in order to have the chef come and take your order personally.

    Very disappointed! We have ate at the Seattle rain forest cafe with no problems and exceptional service. Vegas rainforest disappointed big time last night. When the chef came out he didn't help at all, he just kept saying what do u want and then shot down anything I did want. The kids were given hamburgers wrapped in lettuce and very few fries and charged 10.00 for a kids plate that my kids did not like. When we tasted the kids burgers they had no seasoning, dry hockey pucks and one was raw! The server never came around at all. All in all very disappointed.

    The server and chef were excellent. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. The bar manager was another story. He tried to tell us my 10 year old couldn't have an icee because it contained gluten. I pulled up the Icee website to show him it was gluten free. My daughter gets these all the time and she has Celiac disease. He was very rude and acted as if he knew more about my child's disease than I do. Not only did he sat she couldn't have it, but offered no other options. She was to watch her two sisters drink their icees in their souvenir cups, while she drank diet coke from a regular glass. Needless to say, she got her icee AND the glass. I have absolutely no complaints about the food or server. In that area, 5 stars.

    After reading some reviews of other folks, we decided to check out the Rainforest Cafe when we arrived to the hotel. It was a long trip and we just wanted to get something in our belly that wasn't a fortune. I've eaten here previously prior to my celiac diagnosis and had decent food so I was confident they would be able to provide me with a meal to suit my needs. We ate at the bar because there was a 20 minute wait for a table in the dining room. The manager was behind the bar and said the chef would come out and make me whatever I wanted after I explained to him about celiac disease and gluten. 25 minutes later, the manager was gone and the chef never came out to check on me. So I just decided to order a salad and tell them the obvious, no croutons and no bread. The salad came out with bread on the side of the plate so my sister just took it and ended up eating it. I picked the lettuce off of the salad where the bread had been just in case. The salad was just okay. Nothing to write home about. I didn't end up sick afterwards or feeling sick so I guess that's all that really matters. It is getting tiring of always settling for something just to stay safe. I don't think I could recommend this restaurant for my Pretty Little Celiacs.

    The chef came over after I talked to the waiter- they don't have a gf menu but he assured me that many items were safe or could be made safe- I had the fish tacos - obviously you don't come here for great food- it's for the kids - who, if they're gf may not have many choices- just an ok option
