American
Standing on Old Park Lane since June 14th 1971, the original Hard Rock Cafe offers authentic, casual American fare. Still housing the first ever piece of memorabilia donated to the Hard Rock Cafe, Eric Clapton's Lead II Fender, originally given to reserve a space at the busy bar, the London Cafe is as iconic now as it was over 45 years ago. A visit to the Cafe would not be complete without a visit to The Rock Shop for your Hard Rock London souvenir and to see The Vault, London’s only Rock ’n’ Roll museum. The Vault is free of charge and home to John Lennon’s hand written lyrics to Instant Karma, Madonna’s basque from her Vogue Tour and the harpsichord used by The Beatles to record "All You Need Is Love" and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" amongst other iconic and valuable pieces.

Love HRC and nice to see open again - bit surprised that it wasn’t full on terrace - great that they are up to usual standard even for a much smaller clientele- thanks

Had to dine outside because of restrictions. One end of the dinning area had no shelter so caused a vortex with the wind. Lucky our request to move to a sheltered table was granted other wise we would have had leave. We were then sat next to a very large speaker balanced on a table next to us which blarred out music so all the dinners could hear clearly !!
The starter of nachos was big enough to feed 3 maybe 4 people so be careful when ordering !! The deserts again big enough to share easily but only a choice of two and one wasn't available 😟 Children's menu could definitely be improved asked for a drink for a 2 year old from the kids menu and was presented with half a pint of fresh orange in a glass, not really child portion or friendly and again not much choice with desserts and things. Staff sat inside the venue out of the cold so we spent a long time waiting on them to make an apperance asked for the desert menu 3 times, didn't want to get my phone out to download it eventually a menu was brought out but only two choices and one wasn't available. Would go again as the food was good, nothing extraordinary but only if inside and take a deeper wallet, main course's are reasonable but thats about it 😂 unless you share between 2 or 3 with starter and deserts. Cocktails £14 with a glass to take home or £11 with out. Did inform them it was a birthday celebration but it wasn't acknowledged.

Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Everything was amazing. The only thing they possibly need to work on is there outdoor heating to make the experience even better!

The waiter was an absolute gem. It was a lovely experience with great food. Bit pricy but that’s hard rock generally.

Lovely waiter and great food in the first ever Hard Rock Cafe. Everything about it was amazing. The outside space is covered and heated and we felt something close to normality for the first time in a long time, despite social distancing. Cleanliness great too

A perfect experience from start to finish

Our waiter Alex was amazing - such a nice guy, gave some great tips and recommendations, and was super good with the kids! Cracked a few jokes with us too - a very memorable part of the whole day not just our time at hard rock

The food was great! Good size portions, banging flavours, nice drinks and some stuff to keep the little one entertained also whilst waiting for the food (not that there was a long wait for the food!)

The music was good too - not too loud that you can’t hear each other, the other guests around were very nice too - keeping their conversations among their table

Food was great, nice drinks, reasonably priced for london, good music, and top marks for Alex!

Ps the gift shop next door was pretty cool too!

Our service was perfect, really lovely staff. However the steak was fatty and the vegetables cold and under cooked. The ambience was awful, near a busy main road and quite an ugly small space.

Everything was spot on with this visit, the food and drink was lovely. The only thing that let it down wasn't down to the hard rock cafe, and we had to rush off after receiving some bad news. Next time hopefully we'll be able to relax a bit more.
*Try the onion rings they are the best ever*

I am used to this venue being a bit more lively than it was however because of the global COVID 19 situation I understand there are people fearful of going out but it was lovely to see a few people out and about.

I was served and greeted in a timely manner and my server had a lovely sense of humour.

A lovely meal was had as the food as always was amazing.

The only suggestion I would make would be to put some outside heaters on as it started getting a little chilly being sat outside but that is purely a suggestion.
