Waiter was awesome!! Friendly, helpful, all the staff was great! Sadly, Hawaii has taken a kick in the Crown Jewels by the pandemic, restaurants are empty. Everyone is ID’d and checked before entry, everyone is wearing a mask, all protocols in place.

Our service was good and restaurant appeared cleanly. The portion sizes were less than large. We were never asked for Hard Rock preferred customer number to give us credit.

The food was great and the service was excellent. It’s just a shame the menu has been cut down as a result of COVID-19. The live entertainment was good and not too loud. Very enjoyable experience.

Only one option for non meat eaters. Ridiculously expensive for the quality of food. Not much memorabilia. Music on way too loud. Waitress suggested items as though they were included even though we were up charged. Requested a birthday song/acknowledgment for my son via open table and none was given.

This was the absolute worst experience I have ever had at a Hard Rock Cafe. The server was completely inattentive and the food was almost inedible. 2/10. Would not recommend.

Our reservation was cancelled due to COVID outbreak in the kitchen. No notice was given to us regarding this situation. Wasted $20 Incan fare to get there and back to the hotel.

It was a date night for my wife and I. Enjoyed the food and entertainment. Will need to go back to get the right gift from them. 50th anniversary glass is just a normal glass. Didn't realize it until I got back to the hotel. Oh well. It's around the corner.

Visited family in the island, and post thanksgiving celebration. 4 of them ordered the baby back ribs, they were surprised on the serving , it’s full rack 😀however they surprise themselves, no to go box😂 my point is it’s that good , my husband said it’s juicy and the sweetness is just right. And love the entertainment, the singer has a wonderful voice , forgot her name sorry. Our server, I think his name is Warren, I apologized if that’s not his name, too much restaurant we visited. He is very attentive with our needs and friendly. So thank you for this memorable dinner with the family. I ordered the tossed salad with steak, love it too.

Any time we are at a location that has a Hard Rock Cafe we always go to get a glass to add to our collection, but also to try their local dish that all of them typically offer. This was not the case for the Honolulu Hard Rock. They did not offer a local dish and the menu is seriously lacking. The burgers were so dry and the chicken was dry also. The smokehouse combo was a joke and for almost $30 there should have most certainly been more food on the plate. I wish we would have just bought a souvenir glass and then ate somewhere else. The only plus side to this visit was there amazing blackberry sangria...I ordered two.

I ordered a glass of house Pinot Noir that seemed a little off. The server brought a new bottle over to the table, opened it in front of us, and poured a generous amount into a new glass.
Great service.
