    The food was pretty good, but the service was inadequate. The worst we’ve ever had and we have eaten in HRCs all over the world. We asked for silverware at least 3 times. My mother got the brownie Sundae as her meal. We told the server and had to ask 3 different employees before the Sundae was brought out to her with no spoon. We asked twice for a spoon and her ice cream was completely melted before my mother got a spoon. Another server who was not assigned to us helped us more than our server. We all felt like our server was high on drugs. The Rock shop in the hotel was sold out of many products and I was told we’ve been sold out of items for over 5 months and don’t know when we will get them back in stock.

    The Cuban sliders and Mushroom/Swiss burger were delicious. French fries should be included with all burger meals instead of being an add on. The add on fries were not enough for the price.

    The wait to get our food was over an hour. When the food came out there were no utensils given to the table. Drinks were not refilled. One order was wrong and it took another 25 minutes to come out.

    We had reservations for breakfast and we were seated promptly. Our server however was very abrupt and not very friendly. This is not the type of service we are accustomed to at Hard Rock Cafe. We waited quite a long time for our food and it was the wrong order so he came back and took it away without an explanation or apology. Finally the manager came over but still no apology. We were happy with our orders when we did receive them. It was a disappointing visit but we will try again.

    Hard Rock Cafe said they could not find my reservation. I was able to show my email confirmation… thank goodness. When we first approached the hostess stand they told us that they didn’t take reservations. When I was able to show my email confirmation number, the hostess seated us without wait. This makes me nervous using OpenTable going forward.

    Took over an hour to get apps then food came 3 minutes after apps were served. NOT your typical hard rock experience. No memorabilia or anything you would see in a traditional hard rock. Very disappointed. Never even got drink refills till after dinner was over.

    Was told there was Not enough cooks in kitchen couldn’t get a fajita it would take over 40 minutes to make so I changed my order amd it still tool close to an hour for our table to receive our order. I was charged an extra $5.00 for a half scoop of cold mashed potatoes, another dinner had a hand full of fries just thrown on plate. My husband was asked if he wanted fries or onion rings with his burger he chose onion rings not knowing he would be charged an extra 8.00. The manager was going to tables trying to explain why he pulled certain things from menu at last minute and said we could have free desserts but not for the five people only order two. I wont be recommending this establishment !

    The kitchen was having massive issues. Over cooked burger, barely cooked shrimp, a kale garden salad? But the server and manager were fantastic and ended up comping our meal, and we're grateful I spoke up.

    The food is over priced, and it isn’t that great. Our bill came to $75 for two shrimp appetizers, an order of fries and two beers. Ridiculous price and we didn’t even have an entree.

    The women at the front desk refused to seat us. Four parties of two went ahead of us (2 of them did not have reservations). She kept looking at me and my partner in disgust. She lied to us and told us we have to wait 15-45 mins and that there were no seats available. Our reservation was for 6pm. We arrived at 5:55pm. We spoke with the manager Robert and were seated immediately. He was confused and mentioned how there were plenty of seats available. It wasnt that crowded either (it was a Tuesday evening). Besides that it was wonderful. Our server, Regina, was attentive, kind and swift. The portions were huge! It aligns with the value though. The drinks are strong and sweet. Yum :) The fajitas were delicious. The ribs were yummy and the fries were crispy.mmmm :)

    The Strip Steak I ordered was so tough! I could hardly cut it with the knife provided. The staff had pointed out that there were complaints from others. Why did they sell the steaks if they were sub par? The mojito was way too sweet. Too much sugar. The rest of the table said their dinners werevgood.
