Good food and drinks.

Service was a bit hit and miss on this second visit. Couldn’t help think that our waitress had too many tables to service whilst others stood around yacking.

Still good old Hard Rock food though - we’ll be back

Ask for Laramae. What a sweetheart. Food good, but little on spicy side. Store is only place you get Honolulu branding, can’t get online.

I have never been to a Hard Rock Cafe before this trip. Service was great, food was awesome, view was pretty cool. We arrived before our reservation time and they were still able to accommodate us.

Had a good time. Good was great! The only thing is the price for a shot, $12.00! A little pricy. Over all everything was great.

Typical HRC, tasty burgers, best gluten free bun I’ve ever had! Small mistake on my son’s meal, but they refired it quickly and then didn’t charge us. One of the better HRC stores, imho.

We recommend Hard Rock Waikiki because the food was delicious but the main reason was our server Brooke!! She went above and beyond to make sure our time spent at Hard Rock was worrhwhile. It is because of people like Brooke that we will done here again but also it is because of her that we have had such a wonderful trip!

We went here for an early dinner. We were seated immediately and greeted right away by a very friendly waittress.. She willingly changed my order to meet some dietary restrictions. Our food arrived quickly, was hot, and our orders were correct. The guitar collection hanging on the walls and ceiling was outstanding! All in all, an enjoyable meal.

Having to wait with a buzzer when arriving on time for a booking is not a good start for dinner. But the sever and food was great. Good night just not the best start when arriving on time to be told you will need to wait. What’s the point of booking with OpenTable?

Aloha Linda, I want to apologize about having to wait for your reservation. We have been experiencing large High School Band groups for spring break. We may have needed to reset causing a short wait. Please feel free to call the café if have any further concerns, and thank you for your feedback we are happy to heard from you to improve.

Waitress was really friendly but took a very long time to clear our plates.
We then had to ask for our bill then she disappeared and we didn’t see her again so had to take bill to another staff member.
Our table was very windy and freezing cold even with jumpers on.

You have pay for parking of 7 dollars with validation 9 dollars without validation. I had the breakfast burrito and potatoes. My son had a hamburger keiki meal. He liked it.
Updated my review because Hard rock gave gift cards to redeem for the inconvenience and maybe they just had a bad day because I have been many times before and had good service and good food! Mahalos!

Our waitress was certainly friendly and wonderful HOWEVER she was exceptionally slow.
Slow to bring water (my wine arrived before the table even got water??????)
Slow to take our order
Slow to bring the food (we could see into the kitchen from where we sat and it was sitting on the serving counter for 15 minutes)
Then to top this off there was HAIR in my daughter's salad.

NOT LIKELY WILL WE BE BACK
