Has anyone eaten at the Rainforest Cafe recently? We will be visiting my parents in CT and they have one at Westfarms Mall. Thanks.

We eat at the one in Burlington MA. The manager always comes out with a list of all the ingredients on every item on the kids meals. He has safely eaten hot dogs, chicken nuggets and pizza. The manager told us they have one peanut item on the menu but the peanuts are bagged individually and kept contained.
Just to let you know, it is really loud in there.

PA DD has eaten items from the kids menu at 2 different Rain Forest Cafes (2 different states) and has not had any problems.

We're going to one next week. I called and spoke to a chef who said a chef will come out when we get there to speak to us. He seemed knowledgeable, but he said desserts would be off limits (but we knew that). I'll post & let you know how it goes.
UPDATE: Great experience. We went to the one in Atlantic City. Our server said his son had food allergies (sounded more like gastro issues rather than a true allergy.) The manager and the chef came to our table and the manager came by a few times after our orders were brought out. They said they still have the lettuce wraps with peanuts, but they're kept away & separate. My daughter had a burger, and the chef pan fried the french fries with separate utensils. This is the most attention we've ever gotten at a restaurant, but it was not crowded which may be why. My dd made friends with a fish, and the atmosphere is definitely for kids. The food is okay, your standard fare. My chicken salad was very good, and my other daughter practically inhaled her cheesesteak. But $5.00 for a glass of Coors Light on tap? We'd go there again, but we're not taking the kids to A.C. unless they come up with more kid-friendly things to do.

PA DD ate at the Rainforest Cafe in Las Vegas twice during our visit...both times the server was very understanding & assured us that all her food would be safe...the 2nd time the server even offered to have the chef come out & speak to us about her allergy...i would take her again.

Can others tell me what they have ordered for their PN/TNA kids? Are the grilled cheese and fries safe? It tends to make me feel a little less anxious if others have had success in the past :)

We ate at the Rainforest Cafe in Galveston, TX. It was by far the best, most personal experience we've had allergy wise. My son ate the pizza, I think. He also had the dessert that's the pudding with gummy worms. We will definitely go back!

We went to a Rainforest Cafe in Ontario Calif last summer. My PA/TNA daughter had cheeseburgers and fries and had a taste of my sister's fried fish. We didn't have any dessert.
