Wish I would have checked the menu before going. I didn't realize it was a limited menu due to covid.

The experience here is great. Our waiter was excellent, able to describe the menu without looking, knowledgeable of the drinks. Highly recommended and can't wait to sit in a different area for a different experience. Hats off to the cooks, wait staff and hostesses. We will return, and this was a birthday dinner without the surprise of the staff.

Always a fun noisy place. Only 25% capacity due to covid, so much quicker service than previous visits to past Hard Rock visits (different local). Attentive service, spotless, interesting facial recognition temperature ck. In this college area, where waits can be very long, it’s nice to be able to make a reservation and not have to wait an hour to be seated.

I love hard rock, but this was my least favorite. Our food wasn't very warm at all and it wasn't very busy. The burger was a little pinker than we like.
The service was great and the decor and location is awesome.
I don't think we will be there again.
It was over 50 bucks for a burger, a buffalo chicken sandwich, a beer and a margarita!

Great ambience, music was not too loud either. I was on a date here and could not have asked for a better setting. I also made a special request for my order and they did it without any problems..loved the experience! We got a souvenir drink too :)

I was very excited when my reservation was accepted so quickly however, after my experience I think I realized why. The menu was extremely limited. I do understand that most places now have limited menus- totally understandable! Hard Rock was so limited that it was really difficult to choose and then the choices were super expensive! $17 for a burger and fries——- and it wasn’t anything great or worth $17. Very disappointed. I guess others already caught on , hence the empty restaurant and easy to get reservation! Lesson learned!

We were dining in the Hard Rock in Pittsburgh at Station Square. We chose to eat and have drinks to enjoy the rest of our evening. While waiting for some one to come up to greet us so we can be seated took way longer then it needed to be. When we were seated at our table the place was empty. There were only 2 other tables that had people at. It wasn’t as if they were busy at all. Our waiter wasn’t much better.

I ordered the sirloin steak on the menu. I was told later on that they did not have the sirloin but had another cut of meat. So I took that. It was by far the worse steak I have had. It was nothing but chewy fat. I threw over half the steak away because of it. The service was not the greatest. The waiter did not come around. He brought us our drinks and didn't come back till he brought us our food. Then he came back and brought the bill and receipt. It was not a good experience for me at all.

Well i was very upset. I made the rsvp and when i showed up for my table they told me they we're closed. My daughter flew in from texas and we wanted a night out and although i could make an rsvp they closed the restaurant. So that was upsetting

Slightly more expensive than other places to eat, but the service was great and the food itself was both incredibly delicious and generously-portioned, more so than most others in the same genre.

The food is not at all how I remembered. I ordered the same dish I’ve gotten in the past and it was bland. The drink I ordered came in a much smaller glass than what was pictured in the menu. Mediocre service for being at less than half capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Walked in with a reservation, was seated then ignored. My husband and I walked out as no one came to help us. Sat there for 15 minutes and not even a drink order.
There were 3 servers in our section all looked at us and never came over to help. All this while serving all the other tables including one right next to us. Extremely disappointed. My husband and I seek out Hard Rock Cafes and this was our first negative experience. We drove from Cleveland just to go here for the day and our experience was terrible.

We were here for No Quarter for our 12th anniversary. Reserved the table months in advance. Usually we cant see because people standing and blocking the ramp and stage.. But our Server Mike was awesome , he let us know from the get go he would take care of us. He did just that he made sure the entire night as busy as he was made sure no one blocked the ramp which was also his service isle. Man worked his but off. Drinks got a bit slow but that was ok barb bill could have got out of hand ;) We come here for special occasions often and was sad to see you got rid of Labatt Blue . The souvenir glass drinks very expensive and supposed to have more spirits Long Island was more like water. Poor beer selection. Food was ehh . Few things cold and a few over cooked. But they were so busy we just dealt with it. Middle of the night both mens and ladies room was out of paper towels ladies room no TP except one stahl . But all in all we made the best of it and had fun. Depending on the night of the week and entertainment we will probably be back.

This location is dead, there wasn't anyone in the place on a Saturday night. The food tastes like something you would get at an eat n park but its priced like a very upscale burger joint. Waste of time and money.

Our service was great. Everyone was in a good mood. I would have preferred a home cooked meal on Thanksgiving, but the food was good and it was a good choice for us. We would definitely choose the Hard Rock again. It's a nice atmosphere and there were lots of full tables.

Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh was a terrific experience. I've been to several Hard Rock Cafe throughout the Nation and the Pittsburgh location did not disappoint. Jennifer "Jenni" was extremely attentive and made sure that we were well taken care of...she didn't miss a beat.
