We had a great experience here! My celiac 8 year old daughter ordered the noodles and fries. Very tasty and no cross contamination. Our server and the kitchen were very knowledgeable and considerate of her allergies

Awesome experience. A separate manager came out to take our order and helped our daughters find something they enjoyed. They typically have a dedicated fryer for the fries but it was down. Great service and effort on their part.

Safe. My celiac kiddo got a $10 kids meal with rice pasta spaghetti, French fries, fruit and a icee to drink. The chef handled her order all the way to the table. Staff had great knowledge of celiac & GF contaminant issue. They had a dedicated fryer for the fries and a GF pot for the rice pasta. Really fun place to eat out and we felt very comfortable eating there. Did not get sick. I would 100% recommend for both GF kids & adults.

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.

This is a place where I feel save eating, special treatment for gf food. Although I realy enjoyed my lettuce wrapped burger with fries, the rest of the group was not at all impressed by their food and found it a bot overpriced. Very nice atmosphere though.

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.

This is the first time within the US that this has ever happened… I HIGHLY recommend going here!!! The waiter took everyone’s food order and then stated to our gluten intolerant member that the lead chef would come out to verify/discuss the gluten free options for his chosen meal.

Here are some of the options that they offer… penne pasta, corn chips, queso, non-marinated beef and chicken, soft corn tortilla tacos, and a variety of salads with chicken or shrimp…

This being the day after… there were zero after effects!!
