Redd was our server and she was phenomenal, great attitude, took the time to explain our options, with a smile at all times.
Shane, the SFO Hard Rock manager, came and introduced himself, and made us feel welcome. Were very happy we chose this location to celebrate our best friends birthday. Thank you.

I visited more than 15 hard rock around the world. I'm so disappointed I never came back again.

Hard Rock SF knocked it out of the park. And I don’t say this because San Francisco is a baseball town.
Awesome dining experience, incredible staff at every level, and tasty food to round it out. We brought a guest from out of the country, who was also impressed by this place. I’ll be back!

We did not stay. Menu was different to that advertised on internet and was told that the one we had seen was discontinued at beginning of May . Not much choice of burgers unless you wanted a cheeseburger type or a legendary one which did not look too imaginative!! For the cost we decided we could get an equally enjoyable burger elsewhere for less ! Also seated in public walkway which was not comfortable for us. We were away from atmosphere generally expected at a Hard Rock Cafe. Compared to the one we ate at in Los Angeles this one was rubbish. Not the first time we have been disappointed at this Hard Rock Cafe but decided to give it another go - won’t bother next time!!!

Anyone looking for a great spot to eat on the Pier? This restaurant made my Mothers Day one to remember for sure. We thought we would have to wait atleast 45min to get a table since we didnt have a reservation. So i googled it to see what they had going on for mothers day and saw the option to reserve a table from the OpenTable app So i selected it and was able to make a reservation for 4:30pm at 4:15pm which was pretty neat. We walked up to the door and didnt even have to wait at all for a table. We sat down and got drinks and within 10-15min of being there the manager came to our table to introduce himself and wish me a Happy Mothers Day. He sat next to the kids and we talked about music and how it was our first time there. He asked if we wanted to hear any specific songs/music, and just made sure we were happy the whole time we were there. Our waitress was also very very sweet and attentive.. Overall this place was amazing from the environment, to the staff, to the food, all around just a great experience!! We will be back to this restaurant next time we visit for sure!

Very friendly staff. Our appetizer came out quickly, it’s always a bummer at other places when it doesn’t come out until the main meal. The manager stopped at our table to see how we were doing, and even took the time to talk to our kids about their music interests. The main meal was out quickly too. Food was good and the location at the Pier can’t be beat. We will definitely be back. Thanks!

We prebooked whilst home in the UK so to be sure of a table. On arrival we were greeted by welcoming hosts and seated at a table beat the bar. The venue was bright and lovely and clean. There was a great choice of food to choose from, we had Ruben as our host and he was very attentive to us.

The Host was very friendly and when i went up the podium my husband was already there and the host walked me over to the table. Being a hostess in the past this is where the experience begins and he was exceptional. In fact when it was late he walked by the table and informed us that the front doors will be closed when we leave and informed us where the doors were to exit. Talking about communication, it was great.

The server was very friendly and talkative. She was asking if we had been to another hard rock prior to this one. She was attentive to the table and after our food was dropped and noticed when we had started eating to come by and ask hour our meals we're? She also asked if we wanted more water. On top of that when she refilled the water she brought new straws back as well.

The manager also stopped by to check on how everything was going. i was observing, the manager and noticed that he was visiting all the guest in the restaurant.

My husband was celebrating his birthday and they ended the dinner with a nice birthday sundae.

It was a great experience.

I would come and visit this Hard Rock again. Love the music it brought me back to my high school days.
