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.

I chose a cinco de mayo margarita and the steak salad. Both were delivered in good time and were thoroughly enjoyable. Staff were super friendly and catered to all my requests.

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.

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!

If you want a nice meal and drink for a reasonable price, I would recommend the Hard Rock Cafe to my friends.

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.

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.

The menu is very limited and very expensive for what it is. The only vegan option is an £18 (!) Moving Mountains burger. No vegan sides, starters or desserts.

Some outdoor background music wouldn't go amiss, it was very quiet and lacked any kind of atmosphere, which isn't what you expect from a novelty destination.

On the other hand, the wine is reasonably priced and good quality, the staff were really attentive and friendly and we did really enjoy our evening.

It was so good to be back at one of our favourite eating places. We were sitting under one of the heaters son it was pleasantly warm. The food, as always, was excellent. Tom, our waiter, was very attentive and helpful. Cant wait for indoor dining and hope to be there to celebrate 50 years!

Not great if you're vegan ... no choice of starter or desert, and just one main. Didn't even have vegan mayo, which is freely available everywhere. Food tasted pretty good but was a lot of money for the amount you got. Best point was the music and iconic memorabilia on show.

Because of the COVID social distancing it lacked the usual vibe of the restaurant so not as enjoyable , this is not the hard rocks fault . The food and service was as good as ever.
Only one criticism they served my wine in a timber glass , not happy about that at all , bring back wine glasses please
