Very quiet, the employees we were in contact were awesome. Never have I been to a quiet hard rock, but it was a great time

Server forgot our appetizers. Hair was found in one plate of food. Condiments were asked for and never received. Server never checked back in at table at all. Had to speak to a manager.

Been to many different Hard Rock cafes around the world and this is our least favorite. Made a reservation for 530 before a show and were seated quickly upon arrival. We were seated in front of the door- not ideal but at first glance the restaurant was smaller than others I’ve been to. After sitting a few minutes we noticed an additional room that had a few people sitting with many open tables... should have asked at this point to be moved because it was cold and overly crowded right next to our table. Server was just ok- no personality which is not what we’ve experienced in other Hard Rock Cafes. Orders chicken fajitas- came out quickly but didn’t get the accompaniments until a few minutes later which meant cold chicken and peppers... after looking again there was a long hair that was definitely from the server who ran the food out. At this point we were just calling this experience a complete wash. Very disappointing. Maybe would be better to sit in bar next time- bartender seemed full of energy and personality!

Server was new, however with party of 12 food was very delayed, not busy at all. 2 party members got food 20 min before others. Very unorganized with timing of food delivered.

The menu has really shrunk since I last went to a Hard Rock Cafe, and I used to go very often. The food was OK, not that great. The food came a bit cold, I asked for them to warm it up, an it was still cold. It's crazy that they don't validate parking either.

Hi I went there yesterday and I forgot to leave a review on my 15th birthday there the last time and it was amazing. They had balloons and decorations on the table. Our experience was really really good. We received a beautiful card with a chocolate and dessert. They made everyone in the restaurant tell me happy birthday, Thank you so very much

The best experience today. We found out about the restaurant because we came here for the boxing match they showed a few nights before in their private room which was great! The service was good and place was energetic

They sats us down quickly but I think that’s because it was way less busy than what I thought it would be on Valentine’s Day on a Friday...the food was super expensive but I guess that’s what you get from a world wide brand. The food was pretty good but the fries were stale and cold. I ordered a burger with no cheese and they gave me a burger with cheese. The burger I ordered was a BBQ bacon burger or whatever and it comes with fried unions and then it didn’t come with onions the second time I ordered it...and no bbq sauce on it and they gave me both things on the side. I thought I was paying for them to make my food if I wanted to make my food I would’ve stayed home (especially since it was so expensive)!!!!!!! The service was also terrible like we got one refill after flagging a manager down. I work at a fine dining restaurant and we have to constantly fill everyone’s drinks even if it’s not even close to empty. So yeah the food was good tasting but I wouldn’t go again unless I get reimbursed 😂😂😂😂 it costed $40 and wasn’t worth the money.

My husband & I came to the Hard Rock after a play at the Emerson Colonial Theater. We had been given a BOGO entree offer, so we thought we'd take advantage of it and we were very glad we did! I ordered the fajitas--the Best I've had anywhere! I even took the leftovers home. My husband had the dry rub ribs--superb and plentiful! The bar drinks were also very good and our server, Kelsey, was INCREDIBLE! Catherine, the Kitchen Manager and Wanddy, the General Manager both contributed to making our meal experience complete as they each took the time to ensure that we had everything we needed. After dinner, we walked around, looking/marveling at all the wonderful pictures and memorabilia. The location of the HR is ideal as it's adjacent to Faneuil Hall and around the corner from the Boston Market. And, if you're lucky and patient, you might find street parking. If not, there's a parking garage close by. All in all, we had a great meal and a good time and we look forward to returning.
