Another great experience at a Hard Rock. Music in this location will on the loud side but unlike some locations you can still hold a conversation.

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.

We completely enjoyed our dining experience from the minute we walked in the door. Our server was prompt, courteous and personable. All of our food was delicious. We would recommend the milkshakes and the local Legendary burger.

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.

It was overall a good experience. Food was good. Didn’t expect to pay over $100 for a couple of burgers and spinach dip. Good time however

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.

We try to hit every Hard Rock we can. Denver didn’t disappoint! Checked in about 10 minutes early with the hostess and was promptly seated. Our server, Ashlee, was attentive without being overbearing. The drinks from the bar tasted great, not too much alcohol but not too light on it either. I always order the Original burger. It was cooked to my specifications and tasted great. The manager came by to check in on us and wish us a Happy Anniversary. We capped the meal with the brownie sundae (highly recommend for a dessert to share with multiple people). Definitely recommend!

Working for a non profit agency that serves adults with developmental disabilities, we are not always treated as most "typical" groups are treated while in the community. The staff at Hard Rock Cafe-Denver changed my mind on humanity. We were instantly greeted with genuine smiles and welcomes. The hostess was very accommodating and friendly. Our server was out of this world. The clients adored her and she was such a natural with them. I was practically brought to tears at the kindness and attentiveness that we received while there. By far the best dining experience I have ever had. Shout out to "Cinnamon" for being an angel.

Dining at the Hard Rock Cafe-Denver was truly magical! Our waiter, Lucky Lucas, was attentive and made the experience wonderful. The food was just fabulous, my favorite was the twisted Mac n cheese with Pulled pork-Lucas recommended it to me! One of the other employees-Tommy-was just as attentive in making sure our time at the Hard Rock was just perfect! I will definitely be coming back the next time we are down in Denver!

Great service. Unfortunately we came after a very big weekend in Denver so they were out of a lot of the popular beverages and food items but the server was quick to suggest substitutes/other recommendations. Host staff were very welcoming and accommodating, as our 7 person party arrived for our reservation 25 minutes early and were seated almost immediately.

Such a fun time at The Hard Rock Cafe in Denver! My 11 year old and I loved seeing roaming around and seeing all the wonderful rock and roll memorabilia, and the staff was so accommodating as they took a music request from my son. Seating was very comfortable, and the food was yummy. Will be going there again!
