Wild lions, tigers, and bears! Thunder and lightning! It's arguably the most realistic indoor rain forest ever created outside a Hollywood sound stage, and it comes alive while you eat. We're talking about roaring elephants and screeching life-size gorillas that, at carefully timed intervals, come to life out of the lush surroundings, which include cascading waterfalls and giant saltwater aquariums. Definitely not the place for quiet dinner conversation, but as a place for kids -- of all ages -- this Fisherman's Wharf staple is a sure pleaser.
145 Jefferson (at Taylor), Fisherman's Wharf, 440-5610
