Server was perfect! Food is what you expect at Hard Rock. Didn't like paying $26 to park to have dinner.

There were literally 0 social distancing and safety measures enforced at the front of the restaurant. Tables were not spread out, either. Pretty much right on par with the rest of all of Universal right now- poor.

This was my first time eating at Hard Rock Cafe in years! I had a Gift Card, so I thought that I would try it out during my visit to Universal Orlando. The COVID-19 precautions that this restaurant has taken were incredible - they can't be beat. I really felt safe, and I was surprised and impressed that they partnered with ECOLAB to help. It really showed that they took the experience to the next level, SAFE + SOUND. Our server was fantastic. However, I was disappointed with my check and payment. I am a Universal Orlando Annual Passholder - however, they were unable to add the AP discount to my order. I was also disappointed that you cannot leave gratuity if you pay with a Gift Card - which is really odd, and something that Hard Rock Cafe should look into!

Service was great, everyone was very polite and accommodating. The downside was the food. You’re literally better off getting food somewhere else. I got a burger, nothing special but for $20, it was no different from other chains. My sister got the twisted Mac and cheese, chicken was dry, and cheese was not really good. It’s nice scenery with the floating pink car, but not worth the price.

The food was bad at best (and this is not our first time there), the service was ok though condescending, and the overall ambiance lacks the fun that one would expect at a hard rock.

Food was excellent as always, just wish the server was a little more personal. She did nothing wrong, we just like for a server to talk a little bit, when they are not busy. The restaurant was not really busy as we were able to get in right away. Still a great venue and meal!

They messed up my birthday, never seen a restaurant react in such a way. My boyfriend tried to surprise me and they told him they would do something like bring out dessert. They were very awkward and asked if we wanted dessert. I said no but I had no idea what my boyfriend had in plan either.
Long story short, no dessert or even a happy birthday wish. He even talked to the manager about his plan first. Very bizarre and very disappointing.

We ate ate at the Hard Rock at Universal Studios. The servers name was Ana and she was amazing. I have 2 of my 3 daughters with severe food allergies. This particular Hard Rock has recently gone completely nut free. They take food allergies serious and we greatly appreciate it. The manager and all staff did a great job making us feel comfortable. The food was priced right and was really good. we have zero complaints. Thanks Hard Rock.
