The experience, decor and food was worth the money. We really enjoyed this dinner.
You might want to arrive early so as not to stand in line. We arrived about 5:30 and by the time we left, there was a line waiting for tables. Valet parking is available for $9 per hour and parking is scarce.

Atmosphere of this place is to put mildly... strange, but bizzare would be a more fitting description. Fake palms, elephants, gorillas and various wildcats inhabit the area (they're all stuffed robots, capable of movement and making sounds so don't be surprised). Restaurant is filled with rainbow colored lights, and tables are covered with rather weird looking tablecloths. Every few minutes the restaurant puts on sounds of a tropical storm, waterfalls or some other jungle event. It's all rather amazing, although it takes you away from your food a bit.
The food itself is really rather good. Being a steak man myself, I devoured a piece of meat the size of a cow itself (it's my slick way of pointing out the huge portion size in this place), which was absolutely fantastic (maybe they carved up one their famous Cows on Parade). Menu is very varied: from asian-fusion dishes like Thai burritos, to seafood, steak and all the chicken dishes. I wish I had something sensible add about the desserts, but we simply didn't have any room left for it.
If you're looking for something quiet and romantic, stay FAR away. This place is more like Disneyland, and I suppose it is a big draw with kids and teens, and... crazy adults willing to be amused.
