The hostess asked me about food allergies before she even took our names so that instantly put me a little more at ease. The chef actually came out to our table to talk to me after I told our sever I have celiac disease, he explained to me how everything is prepared separately and safely and that there’s even a dedicated gluten-free fryer! I ordered the quinoa pasta with vegetables, everything tasted great and I had no illness afterwards. I appreciated how helpful everyone was and I only wish more places were this meticulous.

While there is not a separate GF menu, the chef and waiter came to the table and walked thru the menu noting every available option. In some cases, the substitutes GF items or seasonings in place of the standard menu options. Our family had a great time. Would come again!

Our visit here was FANTASTIC!!! The chef and kitchen manager came out to make sure I knew exactly what I could eat, and the list was extensive. They said that they can make most items on the menu gf. I highly recommend dining here. My husband was so happy that they take gf dining so seriously that he hugged the kitchen manager.

Food was just ok. The manager did come out to take my order though and radioed back to the kitchen to see what would work For me, which was nice. My order went in on a special "pink slip" looking form, so it would stand out in the kitchen, and they brought my food out separately to avoid cross contamination with other food for our table on the tray. View off the balcony was great and my kids loved it.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

A truly great experience! Once alerted to our celiac, the waitress brought out a chef who went through the menu with us and offered to create a dish we would enjoy if we didn’t want what was listed. Our order was on a different colour paper to stand out in the kitchen and cooked by the chef who came to our table (who also checked on us later). Highly recommend!!

I went here not expecting much, probably end up with a salad. Wow, was I surprised! They sent out a point person who mainly handles allergies and talked to me about what my options were. There’s no GF menu but they can tailor it to your needs. They have Udi’s GF buns and a dedicated fryer for fries. So I settled on a Beyond veggie burger with fries and it was delish! They also have GF pasta. I had no ill effects afterward. I’ll definitely be back!

They have two things marked gluten free on the menu but the chef will come to your table and tell you what he can make gluten free for you. I went today and actually was able to eat a chicken burger with french fries. He said they have a dedicated fryer for french fries. I haven't had a burger and fries today at a restaurant in years so I was so happy I did today. I am not sick at all either!

The staff was wonderful about my 4 year old son with Celiacs. He had burgers with cheese off the children’s menu (no bun) but had a dedicated fryer for French fries. They also send a manager to the table to discuss your order. She checked on any item we had a question about. GF ice cream and syrup. Great experience. Everyone is very friendly. No specific gf bread items or menu though.

Cesar Salad arrived with croutons and returned. Other items brought to the table and when asked if GF, the waitress responded “they should be”. Miserable experience. We ended up not having a reaction, but we felt unsafe during the visit. Not recommended.

As everyone mentioned, extra precautions are taken with those who have allergies or an autoimmune disorder, such as Celiac disease. The chef personally reviews options with you and writes on a red ticket! They have a wid variety of options from chicken fajitas with corn tortillas, pasta, burgers and bbq sandwiches with buns. Make sure to let your waitress know you have an allergy prior to ordering the above mentioned items so special precautions can be implemented and cross contamination avoided!

We went here because the ratings were amazing and there were gluten free options. I had ordered the gluten free Mac and cheese and my brother had ordered regular Mac and cheese. First of we had been waiting for about over and hour for our food. Then when our food came my food was first a sever put a plate in front of me and said gluten free Mac and cheese. I was so hungry I just dug in. Then the main waiter brought over another plate of Mac and cheese and put it in-front of my brother and said gluten free Mac and cheese. By that point I had already partially ate the fragility Mac and cheese. The worst part was I knew I was going to be sick the rest of the vacation. I started to spit out the food. They rushed me over to where they gave me a drink to settle my stomach. The manager took 20 minites and finally came out! She started talking to us and I felt really sick. They asked if I needed medical attention. She was saying how this usually never happens. First of all this should never happen. If I had a different alergy and the same thing happened I could have gone into anaphylactic shock! This is why I do not trust this place and I don’t recommend it. The chef should ALWAYS bring out the gf so we can varify. Not only that but every single one of the staff should be educated on allergy’s and auto Amune disorders like celiac.

When I told my server that I have food allergies, he went and got the chef, who came out and went over my allergies and my options with me. I had an extra helping of bbq pulled pork with raw red onions and cole slaw on a gluten free bun and a side of French fries which were fried in a dedicated fryer. They only had two types of cider to choose from but I had one to drink and it was great as well.

Our waitress told us all I could have that was gluten free was a burger with no bun. She said there was nothing else on the menu gluten free. I chose not to pay $14 for a hamburger patty so I did not eat. My kids love it there so I’ll go again, but I think your experience just depends on your server.

We had a wonderful experience here. We inquired about what items are safe for my celiac husband and the waitress said she would send the chef to come talk to us because they take food safety very seriously. The chef told us the fries are made in a dedicated fryer, any hamburger can be made on a gf bun and all but one of the pastas can be made with a gf quinoa pasta which is made separate in its own pots from the gluten containing pasta. The food was delicious and my husband did not get sick. We have eaten here twice now with no issues.

If I could give this place a zero or negative, I would. Waited 20 minutes to speak to the chef, we then waited 40 minutes AFTER the rest of our party FINISHED eating to get our "GF" order. Everything was cold, meaning it sat for a while with who knows touching and/or contaminating our food. Needless to say, after spending over 2 hours at our table, we are now eating at D-LUXE BURGERS. Do NOT waste your time or money at Rainforest!

We only went here because the previous reviews looked like they might actually get it. The only appetizer we could get was a bowl of cheese and potato chips ($10.99? Really?). Disappointing. Our server was clueless about what was safe or not and had to go ask at least 5 times. We were told that a chef would come out and discuss options and that did not happen. Ended up getting what tasted like a microwave lunch (pasta and marinara). It was way over priced for a bowl of very bland GF Quinoa pasta with 2 pieces of chicken (maybe). $70 for lunch that was not worth eating. We actually ended up getting something later elsewhere because husband and son were so disappointed

The staff & manager tried really hard, which is why I'm giving them a 3 instead of 1. But all it takes is one chef who doesn't care. I got a burger with a Udi's bun, but I am fairly certain that the fries were not in a dedicated fryer. Again the manager and server tried super hard and I honestly don't blame them.
