    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.

    My family went based on reviews, and despite there only being 2 items indicated as "allergy -sensitive". Big mistake! We were optimistic as the hostess said she'd have the chef talk with us personally (great! right? wrong...). The "chef" tells us we can have a gf pasta or gf sandwich bread. I ask, what about other ingredients? sauce? meats? spices? He shrugs and says marinara and pesto "should be ok". My 13yo celiac daughter was willing to take the risk, and fortunately did not get sick. But the lack of options, knowledge and consideration was beyond infuriating. And the total bill was outrageous. $75 for 2 dinners, a kids dinner and 4 drinks. We'll never visit any location again.

    Update. Went back a second time today and even after speaking with the manager, and confirming twice, they served my 5 year old regular pasta. 2.5 hours later my daughter was bent over in pain throwing up with a stomach ache. I called to speak with a manager who confirmed she was served the wrong noodles (spiral are not gf). This place makes an effort, but failed majorly today. Old Review: Amazing! Let them know about your celiac, and the manager comes to the table to explain the many options that are not even on the menu. Great for my daughter and I! They even promised no cross contamination.

    They have one "Allergy friendly" item on their menu, and many others can be adapted, especially for gf. The manager comes out to confirm all allergies, and brings the dish out personally. They adapted one of their recipes for me and it was delicious, no reaction either. Service was a bit slow, but five stars for the dish I had.

    I wasn't expecting much, but the food was pretty good. My five star rating, though, is based on the service. I told my waiter I had Celiac and he said he'd bring the chef right out. Chef came out and told me to ignore the GF menu and instead tell him what was on the normal menu that looked good to me and he'd tell me how he'd adjust to make it GF. Totally went above and beyond to hook me up. Highly recommend.

    I came here after reading all of the reviews about how well they handled celiac customers. A manager did come to my table to talk to me about how food was prepared and to help me order safely. He also said they had a dedicated fryer for French fries. My meal came out on a GF bun and it was delicious. However, my Nima sensor found gluten when I tested the French fries. Such a disappointment! Good thing I didn't eat them before the test result popped up. The manager apologized and our server even came over to ask if I was feeling ok. That was a first! Anyway, eat here, but with caution.

    It says on the menu to make server aware of any food allergies before ordering. The manager then came out, and was actually excited to go through the menu and options there were with me! They have a dedicated fryer for fries. She gave me some time to decide and then came back and said she had to be the one to take my order, so she did on special pink paper and delivered it to the kitchen, then delivered the food to me and kept checking on me. All the while the restaurant was really busy! Great experience, didn't feel like a burden at all. Good fries and bunless burger.

    I was completely impressed by the level of service here. The moment I told our waitress I had a gluten allergy she sent the chef to our table. The chef walked through the menu on everything that he was able to make safe which was 75% of the menu. He took my order on a red allergy card. The same chef brought out my dinner and assured me, he was the only one who prepared my dish to keep it from cross contamination.

He took sons order (he has CD) and brought it out with our server. There aren't many GF options but gluten-free buns for burgers, a quinoa spaghetti and kale salad. Son had grilled chicken from kids menu. He ordered mashed potatoes (no gravy) but chef brought out rice and orange slices, too.

I had the anaconda pasta with quinoa spaghetti noodles and it was absolutely delicious. Impeccable services, the manager repeatedly came to our table to make sure all of our dishes were gluten free and promptly answered any questions. Overall, I am unbelievably impressed.

I got the queso dip with ground beef added and it was delicious! They use a shared fryer for tortilla chips, so they brought me kettle chips to go with it. It sounds odd, but it was really good. Honestly the dip was so good I could've eaten it off tree bark and it would've been fine! Definitely recommend.

Update: Just had a bite of the chicken sandwich that I ordered on an udi's bun, they didn't remove the tendon in the chicken breast so I bit into this enormous hard disgusting thing.
