The service was great and the starters were really tasty. The main meal was a burger and it was raw . When I spoke to the server he said he would let the kitchen know but I couldn’t eat it so lucky the starters we good

Staff at Hard Rock - Glasgow were friendly and approachable but unfortunately on this occasion the food was less than expected. We had a sharing nachos that was tepid on arrival to the table and for mains my partner had chicken tenders and an onion ring stack (which was forgotten from the order) staff were quick to rectify this and it was appreciated. I had a NY strip and it was ordered rare, some of the steak was beautiful but 2/3rd of the meat was cooked blue. Unfortunately I was unable to raise this with staff as the server in training was somewhat overwhelmed by the table of 8 seated beside us.

I found the experience limiting. My friend, who’s 50th birthday meal we were out for, is vegetarian and the menu did not cater for her choice. I asked what she could order and was shown 3 options!!!!
And in fairness the options for myself were fairly unspectacular and very over priced. Portions were large but not equatable to the prices. And the cocktails and alcoholic drinks were very pricey as well.
It was our first and last time in Hard Rock Cafe…not impressed at all

Had a lovely time. Music was fab and it's a nice touch being able to request our favourite tunes on entry. Loved the ambience and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Was so impressed they remembered it was my husbands birthday and they gave him an ice cream. Such a nice touch to a lovely afternoon. We have 2 small kids so don't get out together often. It was a treat to pick here and it certainly was that - a treat!

I booked table for 9 people ( online 6 and phoned to add 3 as would not let me book 9) Spoke to Lewis I was told 2 tables together at the back. My app messaged reminder for 6 people so went to visit the restaurant to confirm and was told definitely 9 and showed me where they would be at the back ( spoke to Violeta). I increased to 10 ( 6+4). Message put on system and all sorted. Next day tried to book table earlier but said no availability and again on phone confirmed table at the back 2 together and can push together. We arrive for meal only to be told we are not near each other and 6 table far away from the 4 and sitting at our table was a bigger party. It was obvious they got another booking and accommodated them but why confirm 3 times and then change our booking.
That said Mary and the team did sort it out and we were nearer each other and we waited in the shop for them to sort. I really thought that we should have been offered some sort of compensation for our inconvenience as i had phoned and visited the premises beforehand to confirm and we had to wait
The service from Luke was excellent, very attentive without being too much
Meal burgers and children’s hot dog were lovely however the chicken tenders very bland

Food was amazing, staff have fun and do more than just serve food.
The music choice was good, true to its name but still a little varied to satisfy other music tastes.
Food was great, tasty and a lot of it. Food was served quick, you won't be waiting long.
Love the sharing nachos.

Really enjoyed the wonderful service from the wait staff and the food was delicious with good portions. Music was too loud for our taste and made it difficult to hold a conversation. However, we'll be back because they serve food late into the evening.

Our food and drinks were amazing, they forgot the crispy onions on my burger which was a bit disappointing but everything was really tasty and big portions. The spicy wings were so good.

Understaffed.
Bar staff couldn’t do a Kir Royale which is a bit strange considering it’s a very basic cocktail- even when I told them what to put in they said they couldn’t as they were unsure of measurements (!).
Food was lukewarm. Bangcock shrimp was on a bed of tortilla chips which is not how it is usually served - tasted weird - obviously they had run out of key ingredients and tried to cover it up.
Lighting was very stark - lots of bright white lights - so didn’t particularly feel relaxed whilst dining. Edinburgh and London really put this one to shame, sadly.
Disappointed :-(

We booked Hard Rock Cafe because we had booked to see Dirty Harry in the same venue .when we arrived we found out the gig had been cancelled and we had not been contacted . The staff were really friendly and helpful and found out that the gig has been rescheduled for next year . Our waiter Siris was absolutely fantastic he couldn’t do enough for us and he made our night very pleasant .The meal was lovely and the cocktails went down well . We will definately be back

Love Hard Rock and been to them all over the world but the menu is a bit bland these days. Especially for vegetarians who have hardly any choice……I know it’s been a rough few years but a bit of work on the place wouldn’t go amiss !!
