    Ive been in several HRC all over the world, but this one is the worst. The service is poor, it looked like "well it's a paid job" The energetic, friendly waitres(ses) ive experienced in all other are way better. The waiting at the waitingdesk, was more then 10 min. Eventually we were escorted to a table untill our reservated table was ready, so we copuld have some drinks. None came to our table untill we called for a waitress. Thats not what ive been used in other HRC. Usually waitresses come on your table and introduce themselves etc. The noise, was terrible because they had a live band playing downstairs and onm the second floor they played the videos, so all was mixed up in a terrible mix of all kinda music. Never come here again, and ive brought my daughter and her husband to here because the delicious food and to show them that HRC is a cool place which they never have seen one. I felt a bit embarressed because the service and the noise , but the service was the worst...very very pitty.

    I've visited other hard rock cafes world wide. The restaurant was completely full and music was a bit too loud. The person tasked with the reservations at the entrance asked for the reservation name, I tend to speak too quickly due to my working field and he made the remark that "Just your name was all I needed, you speak way too quickly" with an almost mocking tone, after explaining that it's a personality trait due to my working field, he just said "ok, ok come" normally the personal tend to be way more polite and educated I can understand that they can be under some stress due to the work flow but I still took it as rude and unpolite. Besides this the food was pretty good as allways and the waitress was also very polite and help ready.

    The tables were pushed far too close together, so people hit you and the table as they walked through. The food was bland and overpriced. The venue feels dated. There was dirt in my beer which I had to remove. All in all it felt like a waste of money. The Hardrock Menu and restaurant design hasn’t moved on from atleast a decade ago.

    I asked a call refill and I didn’t get it the first time. Normally in hrc the waiter is asking, everything ok. But nobody see. A second time I asked the refill I get it when my dish was empty. And too much ice in the cola. I didn’t have any tip for this service

    Food is really ok - what one can expect from Hard Rock Cafés. The "HRC-Feeling" though did not reach me as it is mostly just a noisy restaurant qith a rather poor service. For the bucket list ok. For all other reasons not my first choice.

    Hard Rock Cafe ist normalerweise immer eine sichere Nummer wenn's um gutes Essen geht. Mein Country Burger fiel diesmal etwas kleiner als normal aus und die Pommes waren auch schon Mal knuspriger. Der Kellner war eher unmotiviert und unaufmerksam und wirkte genervt, weil ein anderer Tisch ständig seine Getränke zurückgehen lassen hat, wofür der Rest der Gäste aber nix kann. Würde künftig eher zu den neuen Burger Restaurants (Peter Pane usw.) gehen, anstatt wieder hierher.

    I collect HRC memorabilia. And since I hadn't been to the one on Köln yet, I was excited to go. Afer going to the HRC's in Bucharest and Prague, the HRC in Köln felt like a closet. It was small, the tables were very close together and the ambience was not very good. I am glad I went, but it was a bit disappointing. On top of that, none of the memorabilia I collect was in stock.

    Since we had a reservation we was able to get seated immediately, which was AMAZING! Unfortunately the food did not live up to my expectations. My husband got the Diablo burger and it was the complete opposite. I also order the new work strip and have cooked a better steak at home, it was cooked perfect in the middle. Unfortunately it was mid at best.

    Es lief alles problemlos ab. Wir waren zu 4 und haben direkt unseren Tisch zu gewiesen bekommen. Die Preise sind extrem hoch aber es war wirklich lecker . Die Mini Burger sind leider ohne Sauce und dadurch ziemlich trocken. Für mich der leider nicht gut Englisch spricht ist es schwierig das fast alle Kellner nur Englisch ziemlich schwierig mich zu verständigen.

    Booked for 4.45 pm and the table was ready... no waiting around. English waiter was really helpful and gave great advice! We ordered the bigger cocktails with the free glass as a result of his recommendation... food was slow in coming but worth the wait. Have been in the Hard Rock NYC on a number of occasions and would much prefer the atmosphere of the one in Cologne.
