We we're 15 minutes late for our reservations but we're still very politely greeted by the hostesses. We we're sat within a few minutes. Our server touched our table within a few minutes of being seated. Johan was very polite and asked if we wanted anything to drink and we asked for water. He was very observant and watch our table and noticed that we were ready for our order. My husband had ordered the Guinness & Bacon Jam Cheeseburger and i had the cobb salad. My husband enjoyed the burger he order and the Cobb Salad was Very good. I'm not an olive fan and did not have ask the server to hold anything off the salad.
The staff at this hard rock is very friendly and the service is awesome. I have been to various Hard Rock Cafes, (Honolulu, LA, Washington DC) and the San Francisco hard rock does live up to the great services and food we have received at the other Hard Rock Cafes. I would absolutely return to the San Francisco Hard Rock Cafe again.

Made a reservation with the OpenTable app for a late lunch for our family of 9, and upon arriving was greeted by the manager, Shane, who introduced himself and shook my hand. He immediately assured us that we would be taken care of, which was a great first impression. Once our tables were ready, he personally escorted us to them and was very personable to us and welcoming to our children. We felt like we were being treated to a rockstar experience and that we were in good hands. I don't know if we were just hungry or if the food was that good, but everyone's plates were clean by the end of the meal, and we couldn't have been more pleased with our dining experience. This was our first time at the Hard Rock Cafe, and after the treatment we received from Shane and his staff, it surely won't be our last!

I’ve never had such an amazing dining experience. Firstly, Tenzin (our waiter) was very attentive, helpful, and friendly. Also, the manager Shane was there to make sure our hard rock dining experience was outstanding and unforgettable. I would plan on coming back to Hard Rock San Francisco ever chance I get. I plan on bringing everyone I know here for a one of a kind, incredible experience. Thank you Shane, Tenzin, and Hard Rock San Francisco for making this occasion one to remember!

Everything was good. Slightly busy. Forgot that it was my birthday only the hostess noticed. Server at the end said a rude comment to my guests and myself. She didn’t bring receipt just the booklet. Than no itemized receipt. So we spoke to management and got that part resolved.

It was fantastic! All the employees took great care of us! I highly recommend Hard Rock Cafe San Fran. They are very good at personalizing your experience. It was my first time dining here and I can’t wait to go again! The Buffalo cauliflower was a great alternative for those who are vegetarian. Everyone who works here is very caring. They take pride in their work and service.

Had a table booked for 6 brought forward to 4pm which helped us dearly.
The guy on the front desk was very helpful making us feel welcome and took us too our table.
The food and service was excellent polite staff could not do enough for us making sure all our requirements was met.
The food was amazingly and all brought out together so we Could eat at the same time the cocktails was also very nice with a good variety to choose from.
The whole restaurant had a good atmosphere with good music playing but not to loud so you can still hear your conversation at the table.
I would definitely recommend coming here best steak in SAN Francisco.

We were greeted by the manager who introduced himself and welcomed us warmly just after finishing our Alcatraz tour. He then introduced us to our servers who took wonderful care of us. The food was perfect in taste and timing, and we never lacked for refills. Would definitely come back. The location is great!

Went to the Hard Rock while visiting San Francisco for the weekend, WOW, what a meal, we both loved our meals, best one we had all weekend. We will definitely will be back. Shane and Victor were awesome. With Open Table we were able to go right to a waiting table, past the guest that were trying to make reservations.

We used OpenTable to book a reservation and it was honestly the easiest thing ever! In just a few clicks we had a table and when we walked in, they greeted us by name and had our table already ready! The Hard Rock Cafe was the first restaurant we ate at in San Francisco on our trip, and it could not have been a better experience. The food was amazing and they even asked us about our music preferences! If anyone is thinking about eating at HRC, I would definitely recommend using OpenTable for a better experience. The app also made it simple for us to look at the menu and see other reviews before deciding to book. Signing up for an account was also extremely simple. Overall, I have nothing negative to say about using OpenTable and would definitely recommend! Thanks.

My friends and I were visiting and chose Hard Rock because of how easy it was to reserve on Open Table and we chose the time we wanted. I have never had an experience like I did there. The staff was INCREDIBLE and made it so fun for us to be there. They constantly checked in with us to have simple conversation or asking what we needed. We had the best time and was a highlight of our trip. I would recommend Hard Rock San Francisco to anyone visiting Pier 39!

I’ve been here before years ago and loved that experience, that’s the reason I wanted to go back! First the table are so close to each other I felt like I had to keep looking behind me to make sure my chair wasn’t in the way of someone wanting to walk by. Second the burgers we got were greasy and the drink I got was one where I got to keep the cup but for $16 it’s not worth it. It’s averafe food for to much $ when you can go to a dozen other restaurants on the Pier.
