    No TVs on so no music videos showing. This ruins the atmosphere a bit and is something you expect in a HardRock

    My husband and I visited the venue on Monday just before the Nickleback concert and it was an amazing place to start our night. The atmosphere was awesome and the food was also great. We had the cheeseburger and salmon. A bonus was that there was 2-4-1 drinks on that night. We had a great time

    We pre booked a table and arrived in time but had to wait approx 10 mins to be seated which was fine. We all ordered a burger and the consensus for all of us was that they were quite dry and probably not worth £16.95. Drinks arrived quickly and the waitress was friendly and efficient

    Great food. Very tasty. Our table wasn't ready so we went to order drinks in the bar - after 20 minutes we hadn't been served as it was busy. We then went to our table and ordered drinks - again we waited 15 minutes for our drinks and to order food. All waiters were friendly and welcoming.

    We booked a table for 4:30 because we knew it would be busy as there was a concert on nearby. We got there to be told there was a wait. 30 mins later we were seated and we mentioned we were in a hurry because we were attending the concert and already 30mins behind. When we sat down we told the guy we were ready to order as we were in a hurry: the server came over and said hello and walked off. I had to go find someone to take our order as we waited 15mins and she still hadn’t come back. We ordered drinks and food and said again we were in a hurry. 2 drinks turned up 10mins later. Then a third and then a tap water after 25mins from sitting down. The food came around 5:45. We booked for 4:30 because we had somewhere to be on top of this the service we received was very slow and we had to eat fast to get to our concert which meant we didn’t enjoy our usual visit to a hard rock.
    Hard Rock Cafe - ManchesterResponded on May 13, 2024
    Hi Vicki, Thanks for getting in touch. May I offer you a full and frank apology for the issues you faced on your visit. Unfortunately with all the concerts going on that day we were extremely busy and did face challenges getting tabled turned around in a timely manner, for this we apologise. May I also offer you my apologies for the lack of attentiveness of our team, we need to do better and i will pass this on. We hope you do come back to see us so we can give you a much improved experience. Regards HRC Manchester

    We were disappointed with our visit to Hard Rock Cafe this time. We have been before and loved it. This time the biggest this that we were cross about was that there was very little Rock music being played and a lot of R&B and other genres. We were also waiting a long time for our food, when it did arrive it wasn’t great. The burger was hard and tasteless. My son had the kids mac n cheese, but it was clearly not freshly made and didn’t look very appealing. He didn’t eat much of it. The service was very chaotic and the staff didn’t seem as though they were particularly happy to be there. My husband is a big Rock fan and I had booked a table on the 9th May for his 40th Birthday, it was such a shame that it didn’t live up to what he wanted for his day. If we decide to try again. It would be nice to know that more has been done to rectify this.

    Lovely staff. However couldn't hear what we where saying to eachother due to noise levels. Looked at menu before arriving had loads of options, but when we arrived menu was much smaller and very little options. I got the nachos, where you had to pay extras for toppings , which I felt was robbery as anywhere else you would get a choice without paying extra.
    Hard Rock Cafe - ManchesterResponded on May 10, 2024
    Hi There, We are really sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy yourself. We are not sure how a menu you looked at before visiting was so different to the one you had when you arrived, and it is certainly something we want to look into! We have sent you a private message with an email address you can contact us on if you are able to provide any more information about this. We are proud that our Nachos come pre-loaded with many of the toppings that other establishments charge for and, although we do charge extra for things such as proteins, we are not sure comparing that to violent crime is entirely appropriate. Please do let us know what you felt was unfair about our pricing if you decide to get in touch. Team HRC Manchester

    We pre booked our visit to Manchester HRC to coincide with a day out for our daughter's 15th birthday. We had made note of the occasion on our booking and it was acknowledged when we checked in. We also then asked if we could have a little bit of a quieter area as our daughter is autistic and sometimes struggles with lots of noise ( though she enjoys HRC and has visited them before including KRK last year). We were told we'd get a booth, but on reaching the tables were then changed to standard tabling even though we could see two booths not in use; one needed cleaning and when done so was still not used. We asked for a move when we ordered drinks and were accommodated after a check with front desk. Happy again we continued. The menu is a mess. As we said we have an autistic daughter who enjoys making her own choices and that sense of independence, but having to page through footballers and has been girl band members in an out of step way from the usual starter, main, dessert format is not helpful. Our younger daughter also struggled with the drinks choices which weren't evident on the kids menu. However the service was good in general, though our starter plates were not cleared before the mains arrived and my wife's dinner chicken Mac and cheese went cold quickly. But they did change our bill to accommodate our blue light card. So a bit hit and miss and misses can be a put off but these are simple things to correct.

    The kids hotdog meal was apauling the bun was hard the hotdog was full of hard grissle and my granddaughter didn’t eat it. My pulled pork on my sandwich was cold and so were the fries. I did mention this to the waitress but she didn’t seam interested she just smiled which was a shock as this was the first time she had done so. The whole experience was very poor in every department compared to other Hard Rock Cafes that we have dined at . The only time I was engaged with properly was when it was time to pay .

    Overall it is still a nice experience as it has been a long time since we have visited and taken dinner. Just that the music or band setup takes a bit too long and has no chance to enjoy it

    Hi There, Thank you for the lovely review! I will pass your comments on to our marketing department and see if we can speed up the set up times with the live music. Team HRC Manchester

    Puddings are a small selection and was told they are large portions so could share. No use when we wanted different ones. Ice cream alone was dear so decided against any pudding at all.

    Hi Deborah, Thank you for the review! Our apologies about the dessert selection; we have a new menu coming soon which will hopefully address this. Team HRC Manchester
