I was there for Guitar Center's Winter recital. The ambiance & food was good & so party at upstairs. However, the waiter * waitresses serving were NOT rude and that's all I can say. They didn't ask how are you, do you need anything is everything to your liking. There was a large open space behind the seated tables, I asked for extra chairs for my guests, who drove from 100 miles just for the event, and was told no. Yet, for the 3pm recital following ours, morr chairs were bringing sat out. We didn't complain or mention anything because it wa my 8 year old daughter's day. Had the service attempted to be friendly I'm sure the experience would have been better. I will still refer people there, but will repeat my experience to them.

last minute reservation for a group of 8 on a Saturday night. Great service, thanks Marshall!, good food, great selection, and no complaints about separate checks... we were seated under a vent and we froze but that was just the luck of the draw!

Great food! Very impressed by the attentive manager who checked on our table frequently. We saw him deliver food to other tables throughout the restaurant during our visit as he helped the rest of his staff. Overall, great experience!

Long wait, despite being on time for our reservation. Kitchen can't handle large parties and crashed. We were informed upon finally being seated that the bar was backed up 20 minutes and the kitchen 45 minutes. Our waiter did not deliver our apps, which were on the bill.

Our waiter was awesome! His name was Vincent! He is the type of waiter/waitress I always look for when going into a restaurant! We need more people like him in the food industry! He was doing his job but he also made it feel like he truly cared! Great job!!!!

We have been to the Hard Rock in Las Vegas, San Antonio & New Orleans and were very happy with the food and service.

We were all very disappointed here in Nashville and recommend you choose any  other restaurant in the area.

Our Server was good. Took our drink and dinner orders promptly.

The restaurant was fairly empty and we soon realized why. It took almost 20 minutes to get our drink order. We were concerned because two bartenders were googling how to make a Hurricane and Long Island Ice Tea. Both are pictured and highlighted on the menu. Drinks were horrible.

We ordered various items and most were cold and of very poor quality.

We got our appetizers before our drinks. It took a very long time to get our entres and the food tasted like rubber. We got everything from chicken to steaks to burgers and nothing was good. We were never asked about a refill on our drinks and it even took forever to wait for our change when we did the checks. We will not be back.

We came in on an Open Table reservation and they took tremendous care of us considering originally we were two separate parties (10+6)...put us together which was outstanding and then added three people...server was great...

We made reservations months in advance and came for lunch. A table of six and we were set right in front of a singer/guitar player that was so loud we couldn’t have a conversation. We asked to move and were told we couldn’t be accommodated. There was open seating around us. The food too way too long as it wasn’t too busy. When we got it, it was sub par for your restaurants. We have been to over 20 different Hard Rocks and this has been our only negative experience.

We came here for my birthday and were super excited. We decided to sit upstairs originally near the stage but it became so loud so we moved to outside where our server was still serving. It took us 45 minutes to receive our mixed drinks, my husband had to go up to the bar and ask what was going on in order for them to be made. The server was not very attentive, she would come once in a blue moon. We decided to order a second round when our first came so we would not wait as long and it still took 30 minutes. The server gave us ONE drink on the house to make up for the slow service and told us to split between the FOUR of us. It was absolutely insane. I’ll probably never be back. The food was mediocre and Luke warm.. not worth it

When we arrived , our hostess said they had accidentally overbooked our reservation for rooftop dining and someone was already up there and we could either eat on patio or wait 30-45 min for a table which was frustrating as I had booked this 2 months ago....The hostess then spoke to manager and within 10 min , provided us with a private dining area at a large table( it was our son’s 17th birthday and there were 7 of us) and also gave us free appetizers and drinks. This helped tremendously and we ended up having a great time and able to enjoy the experience ... Our waitress was very pleasant and friendly and accommodating as well. Will definitely continue to recommend Hard Rock in Nashville as I have enjoyed it for many years

Celebrating my birthday. We were initially seated down stairs and realized the band was upstairs and asked to be reseated. The hostess was very accommodating and guided us to the new table. We throughly enjoyed the band and the meal.

We had a reservation and the hostess didn’t even take our names for 15 minutes, we had an amazing server but also had undercooked food and a adult drink that was so bad it had to be sent back. We didn’t have high standards but expected to at least be greeting and names taken down. They seriously would take a name find a table set it up and get them instead of having help. It may of been an off night and since it’s still in business I am assuming that it was just a bad night but really expected overall a better experience. The server was absolutely amazing and just was really dealt a bad hand.

In our opinion the welcome wasn’t warm, despite explaining we had an opentable reservation the host didn’t seem bothered.

Then, I think the first time in my life, at 57 years old was refused an alcoholic drink has I didn’t have proof of age. I appreciate rules but no where else in Nashville/ Memphis TN asked for proof of age!

Food was okay but then bill was delivered before we’d finished, had chance to produce voucher then enquiry because we hadn’t printed out! Not the best Hard Rock experience.
