Disappointed that we still had to wait 30min, that’s the point of having a reservation!

Probably the worst steak I have ever had. Usually a ribeye isn’t less than a half inch thick.

It may have been the best Thanksgiving meal we’ve had. (We had two of the specials while our son had a double cheeseburger). The turkey was moist, the dressing was perfect, the vegetables grilled, the sweet potatoes were whipped and tasty, the gravy complimented the turkey, and the cranberry sauce had chunks of cranberry and a bit of orange zest. It was moderately priced, which made it even better. My son’s burger was cooked to perfection. Totally worth it.

One of my clients was singing and I was there to support her. She did a fabulous job! I thought it would be nice to eat at the Hard Rock before she performed. We hadn’t eaten there in years. It was a very pleasant experience! I’ll be back to try a boozey milk shake someday!

Had a great time! Alex was kind when seating us. Kim ended up waiting on us, and she made our visit enjoyable. We got our food timely, and was able to visit and enjoy a leisurely dinner without the pressure to turn the table. Food was good, and I’m glad our family chose this location for dinner! Thank you!

I have eaten at the HRC in London, Paris, Orlando and Helsinki but never here where I live in Denver. We have always loved the food and atmosphere. I went Saturday for an early dinner for my birthday. The restaurant was busy but not crowded. We were seated upstairs and it became apparent quickly that we'd been forgotten. we were the only people seated in the upstairs at that time but within a few minutes several more parties had arrived. You could tell they were uncomfortable with the amount of time they were left unattended as well. When the waitress finally did arrive she took our drink order which was three Waters and one beer. It took a very long time for her to bring back the waters and she explained that she would have to go downstairs to get the beer. not wanting to wait another long stretch to give her our order we asked her to take the order for dinner right then. When the food finally arrived it was cold. two of us ordered the fajita platters and not only were the platters not sizzling as they normally are when we order fajitas at the Hard Rock Cafe, the cast iron portion of the plate was cool to the touch and the remainder the plates were actually cold to the touch. I ordered a combination of chicken and shrimp, but the shrimp had a horrible burnt taste and left an aftertaste. I asked my daughter to eat one of the shrimp and see if she also thought that it tasted really bad or if I just wasn't used to the spice they used. She agreed it was just burnt. we had been there so long I was not going to send anything back and start over so I ate the chicken portion and left the shrimp. My daughter got four tortillas and I got three, not sure which was right. The tortillas were stale and breaking, not soft and warm. We were very disappointed. We have a lot of choices where we eat here in Denver, I will not make this mistake again. It's unfortunate because we've always enjoyed our experience at every other Hard Rock Cafe we've been to. More to say but out of room.

Responded to a mailed invitation promotion from our local general manager, Joel Glentzer, offering a free Hard Rock -T-shirt with a select food order. Service, by Cass, was excellent. Food was very good. Grandson, accompanying, was delighted with the T-shirt, and the care with which it was fitted. I wanted to see if Joel Glentzer was available to thank. No one I spoke to had any idea who or what Joel Glentzer might have been. Evidently, Hard Rock's hippie origins are intact. :)

Hard Rock is known for the ambiance, not so much the food or service. Denver's had great memorabilia but they forgot to seat us and acted like a table just came open when we asked, even though we could see the table had been empty for 10 mins. I had to go to the bar to get ketchup because the server never brought it. We had to ask for our drunks to be refilled, twice. Not great service!

We had a fantastic experience here. We originally had reservations for seven but ended up getting there early and were seated immediately. The service was great, our server was Dane and he was attentive and enthusiastic, very helpful. The food was great and came out really quick, the fries tasted like they’d only been on the plate a few seconds before I got them.

I have eaten at several Hard Rock Cafe restaurants. Unfortunately, this was the worst experience I have had at a Hard Rock Cafe. I've had drinks and appetizers here many years ago and was really looking forward to making a new tradition with my family to make it a regular thing to have dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe Denver. However, I'm not sure we'll ever go back to this Hard Rock Cafe, which is unfortunate because we live in the Denver area. I'm just glad that my son's first experience with Hard Rock Cafe was in Orlando - which was exactly the kind of experience everyone should have every time at Hard Rock Cafe - but especially their first time. This would have been a terrible first experience and possibly turned them off to going to other Hard Rock Cafe locations. The service was exceedingly slow and the food was mediocre. The server didn't check on us very often and so our water ran out midway through the meal. Even with help serving, some of our side items arrived 10 minutes after the rest of our meal. Unfortunately, I felt the quality was the same, or not as good as any, basic, burger restaurant. The atmosphere made up for it a little bit, because it is still a Hard Rock Cafe, however, not very much. We were all very disappointed.

Our waitress, Aubree was very friendly and gave amazing service and the manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was ok. Plenty of amazing food to go around and we left with lunch for the next day. We sat outside so the noise level was the only negative to the whole experience.

Our experience at Hard Rock Cafe-Denver was great. Our server, Tasha, was friendly and willing to answer all our questions. She "checked in" to make sure our food met our satisfaction and always came to our table with a smile. Shane, the manager, was great too. He stopped by our table to make sure we were having a wonderful experience and to see if we liked our meals. Will definitely be back.
