Es war Mal wieder sehr gut hier, wir könnten auch früher rein als wir reserviert hatten, nach der nötigen Corona-Kontrolle. Zügige Bedienung und sehr freundliches Personal.
Im Shop war ein wirklich mega guter Mitarbeiter, der sich für uns Zeit genommen hat und uns super beraten hat!

This was my fifth time visiting the Hardrock Cafe, but my first time visiting the post in cologne.

The food was, as always, quite okay. The taste was good and everything is made really well, but I’d like to see a more diverse menu. I wish they would have some more vegan options.
Right now their vegetarian option is the „Moving Mountains burger“ which comes with cheese, and I think even bacon, but I can’t recall.
You could order it without cheese, but I would wish they would have a designated vegan option.

My family enjoyed their dishes, the Steak Salad and the Cesar Salad, though the Cesar was quite boring. Lettuce with mayo, some Parmesan flakes and chicken. I know that there are ways to make it look and taste more appealing.

The restaurant was very full, which is normal.
I‘d recommend making a reservation beforehand.

The mixed drinks are extremely expensive. They cost between 11 to 16€ I believe.

I think visiting the Hardrock Cafe is an experience, though not everyone will like it.

We were on the first floor at in a nice corner, but it felt a bit open. Not that bad though. Service was great, two very friendly girls, one from Spain, the other from Canada. Food was as expected, time flew by and we - a company of four - had a great time.

Ich finde es schade das nicht jeder Angestellte der mit Kunden zu tun hat auch deutsch spricht. Auch wenn es ein nicht deutsches Unternehmen ist, so ist Köln noch immer in Deutschland.
Trotzdem ist jeder Bemüht mit einem deutsch zu reden und jeder ist sehr nett.

Service was horrible. There was no service. Our “waiter” didn’t talk to us all evening and we were a forgotten table. I had to get my own glass because our waiter didn’t botter to bring one with my water glass bottle. We sat there with empty plates for 30 minutes and the waiters didn’t ask us if everything was allright or if we wanted another drink. I would never ever go back there ever again.

Sehr schöner Besuch gewesen, hatte den Besuch als Geburtstagsessen vorgemerkt. Wir hatten einen netten gedeckten Tisch bekommen. Essen Top, Lautstärke auch ruhig, und der typische Hard Rock Cafe Style. Zum krönenden Abschluss gab es sogar für mich zum Geburtstag ein Eis mit Kerze umsonst sehr netter Service aufjedenfall!. Kann ich jedem nur empfehlen.

Hostess was friendly and our table was ready upon arrival. Server was friendly as well, though getting drinks/ refills took sometime and a friendly reminder to the server. Otherwise a great experience overall.

Die Burger hatten keine Sause, daher war das gesamt essen sehr trocken. Die Pommes war im Gegenteil sehr gut, doch insgesamt war es eine Geldverschwendung und hat den Anforderungen nicht entsprochen. Nicht zu empfehlen!

If you like to eat A LOT it is the perfect place. Enjoyed the ambience but it's a little loud if you like to eat in peace (was not a problem for me).

The service was bad, waiter had little insight in our needs at the right moment. The hamburger was a bit blend (meat was not spiced at all). Last but not least it was cold/windy inside. We're a Hard Rock fan, but yesterday in Cologne did not fit the regular experience.
