    The automatically added tip system is not transparent and is not what a tip should be (it should reflect the quality of the service and not the servers income).

    I booked dinner here because the website and other media said the place had a rooftop bar. Imagine my horror to learn from the hostess who couldn’t be bothered the say hello and welcome that it’s closed. What the f? By this time we were both hungry and our reservation wasn’t for 20 minutes and despite a dozen or so employ tables she suggests we go to the bar. Found a table near the actual bar that was filthy as wax the floor. We should have left when we sat there for 20 minutes being ignored. The barkeep finally brought water and a rag to clean the mess. We ordered a drink and I swear to you the glass of cosmopolitan was half full. For $11 and it was maybe 4 sips. We were called to our table just as the drinks arrived and were seated in a booth. The floor underneath was just as dirty and sticky as the bar floor was. I had the steak salad and my date had the chicken Caesar. Mine was so vinegary that I couldn’t eat most of it. I pulled the steak out and dabbed the excess dressing off. Waiter was just so so the music was too loud and the artifacts lame. We left and went to the Radiator Whiskey and had a blast. Should have gone there first.

    Like many they are severely understaffed. They are trying but it shows in poor service when the staff is working double duty. Our food came before our drinks. They were out of many food and drink items we tried to order. If you go set low expectations for now.

    Food was good and our server was great! The kitchen was running a little slow, but our server kept checking on our food for us. If you need to use the restroom, be sure to ask in advance. There are only 2 for the entire restaurant and you need a code to get in (and have to hold in a button for a while to lock it).

    Apart from our server Mikey, (who was polite, attentive and welcoming) the whole experience was underwhelming. The food arrived at all different times, so we didn't really get to eat at the same time, otherwise food would go cold. My burger was dry, as were the chips, due to sitting on the pass whilst waiting for other dishes to be cooked. We were hit with a 25% service charge (for four diners), this made the meal in my mind - over-priced & poor value for money. Don't get me wrong, I am happy to tip but please allow me the autonomy to decide on how much I should give.

    Not my best experience, no draught beer, chosen soft drink not avail and food didn’t seem worth the high cost… nothing special and won’t be returning. Wish I’d tried a local restaurant rather than a chain.

    Service was great. Atmosphere was really nice. Food was not good. I have been to plenty of HRCs and this by far had the worst food experience. Steak and Ribs were charred with very little taste. Mashed potatoes and green beans were bland. Then the mandatory 17% gratuity and 5% service charge plus tax was ridiculous. I don't mind the 17% gratuity for the server, but the additional 5% to the restaurant is ridiculous. I get trying to survive after Covid, but providing better food would definitely go a long way. If I would have known about the taste of the food here, I would have just gotten my HRC souvenirs and ate somewhere else.

    Went for the Father’s Day Acoustic brunch - we prepaid for a reservation for 4, but only had 3 join - restaurant didn’t offer to refund the open seat. Food quality was lacking - the breakfast potatoes were soft and when I asked if I could possibly order egg whites, the answer was no. The service was poor - after asking for decaf coffee, drinking the whole cup and asking for a refill, the servers argued at our table about if the restaurant even served decaf (have a sensitivity to too much caffeine and get migraines - though luckily they had an open bottle of Tylenol to offer), said they’d check if they had any and come back, they never did… they also seemed to not be bothered to keep the water filled and the only other alternative was juice (I asked for tea, they said they didn’t have any).

    Sadly the worst meal I have eaten at a hard rock and we have visited 90 cafes. The meat was chewy, the beans limp and soggy the potato looked like it was left overs from 3 days ago. The waiter didn’t give a dam.

    the place was almost empty but it felt chaos was going on. We where brought to a booth that was not cleaned, we had to wait a bit for our waitress. We then got our food but not any cutlery or napkins. And finally the food was just not well prepared, the bun was a soft piece of bread, fries where overdone and no flavor. And the worst was that the tip was already included which defeats the whole point I think 🤔

    I looked at one of their reviews on open table and it said that they had a great waitress named Farah. We ended up getting Farrah and the reviewer was right she was awesome! Her service was quick and fun! I think she made dinner awesome. The food was great, we had chicken fajitas, ribs and the nachos! All the food was hot and tasty.

    We had reservations but there were only a few people in the restaurant. The service was nothing special. Our drinks did not get refilled. Food to a long time to come out, considering it looked like there were only 2 other groups even ordering. The food was not well seasoned and it didn’t fell like other Hard Rocks we have been to. Not my favorite eating experience.

    The food was very overcooked. The acoustics made it so we could hear the other tables (only about 5 other tables filled in the place) more than we could hear any music. It was happy hour and there was no bartender in the restaurant's bar; he was working "upstairs". Way overpriced for the burned steaks and burger. This was really disappointing.
